Thursday. When he left  the coal "'town '"'there'' were no" encoii'f-  aging-^prospept^ of ther,sb-ike being-,  settle&i '"'.* In'-'the'-'-tneantir'ne" .the company is making- about 180 tons of coke  per, day at Mosrissey and Fernie about  half the requirements of the Boundary  sinelters,* This coke will be apportioned, to the various provincial smelters.  The .Fernie: ovens' are being,fed frbiti  some coal that'was. stored ..'hear the  railway track but this supply will be  exhausted in a few clays. When this  ���Happens and the; Strike continues, the  output, of coke will be confined to  Morrissev.*:-,-r.-.--a '���" ������-��������� ������������ '-'������- ���'-'������''  ..'Mr. Keffer stated ttiat the''���officers-of  the company had assured him that no  coke had been shipped to the American  side'jsiric'e the, mine ascident and this I  state'nient was corroborated by that of  the'railway'offici-ils. "What"supply"of  coke they had was given to  the Canadian smelters.  Wotd comes" fro in Fernie that a  qnortini of the executive of the Associated; ;Boardsi-of Trade. did .not meet  there.; President G.; OirBuchanan of  Kaslo wired the' various boards asking  them to send their presidents .l.io-  Fernie to see if they������ could not  bring about a���-'settlement; of the strike.  A meeting of the' Greenwood board  was held on S;itirfday*Iast when it was  decided that no action would.be, taken.  unless assurances were given that'  both'.'the. company''and the men were  willing to refer the questions in dis-  piitejto_thej;xegu,tiy-5: of the associated  boards. Telegrams were sent to  Fernie but as no such assurances were  forth-coming, the board decided not  to ���participaite in- the meeting, ��� at  Fernie. This view was taken by the  majority of the boards of trade.  ���The Sunset smelter blew out on  Saturday last and the superintendent  Mr.' Goodell is in Spokane. Before  operations will be resumed several improvements will be made'-to .the plant.  The smelter will get ;i carload of coke  a day from Fernie but as this is not  nearly enough to keep the furnace  going sometime will elapse before  smelting operations will be recommenced. The;situation at the Mother  Lode smelter is similar. The company  is premised two car loads of coke per  d.ay. But as this is insufficient, lime  will be given to accumulate a reserve  of coke.- .  At the Granby smelter, three fur-  uaces are now running, but the supply  of coke is ralthcr a doubtful one ntul  they may be forced to close down  again at any time.  A dispatch from Fernie snys : The  advertised ��� meeting- of the executive  of the Associated'Boards of ' Trade  called"* for"' "this morning- "'did 'not  materialize owing to the non appearance of ,a , single member of that  august,*'.; body; and moreover not a  line has been"* received here explanatory of their failure to keep their*  engagement. The local' board 0 of  trade;1'the Officers of vtiie. cojal*..com-  pany and officials of the .rrfi tiers union  fully expected the meeting to be held,  and everyone was looking forward  hopefully to see some- .satisfactory  solution of the strike question' as a  result of the conference.  Whilst it is very, problematic if a  settlement could have been affected  if the association board executive had  met, still there was a 'noticeable  anxiety on the part of both interest  for a conference to be held, which  argued favorably for at least a  step  in the direction of brer-king I-.'"*'  present deadlock. As it is, Hi.'  assueiiited !>t>;-nl njipears in a v*r:ry-  ridiculous lig,nl. They Inive ' trilled  with a matter of most .serious importance to the��� entire'Kootenu.y district,  and any influence they might naturally have been expected to exert, :is  representing   the    business    interests  of their    sections  has   been   entirely  dissipated.  Whilst there as nothing new in the  strike situation, rumors are not lacking and the feeling prevails that  an attempt will be made to import  labor .from ��-other- districts, and a.  careful-watch is being kept on all  incoming-" trains'; Iu the present state  Q-f ^ public oqinion it would be decidedly an unwise move on the part of  the company to; "adopt any such  means of breaking the strike.  .'������-Perfect ��� order- prevails, and there  is not any kind of lawlessness, but  assuredly, if ..li pu-nnion men -were  imported, there would be trouble, aud  and there are elements here which  would be very hard to control in  such: an-emergency* ���:  Local and Personal.

For about' half an ���������.hour Monday'*  evening it looked as if a large volume  of. hot; air .had, .strayed across the  mountains front Grand Forks. With-,  out much warning the wind blew/a  terrific -gale with the result that linemen have been working eighteen  hours a -day ,e.iideavoring to get communication with the outside world.  The. wind; was of, sufficient velocity to  fell" large''trees ��� that were' apparently  proof ,'again.stj;'th'e '^strongest g'tle.'that  .could blow. These trees fell ' every  way'and ever)'- ' where. Telephone,,  'telegraph and electric light  lines were  broken   in   .numerous ...places.  The  storm.lasted only 30 minutes when a  heavy:rainfall subdued the elements.  .*���; At Anaconda things looked serious  for sometime. Earlier in the evening  the residence and' office of T.

Mrs. Norris-hard been ill at their home  near Midway for nearly a month,'when  it was decided to' remove heir to the  hospital. ' Her. malady did not yield to  the careful treatnientshe -received- and  on Monday she died- from the exhaustion incident to her illness.- The rerun ins were moved to the residence of  Sir. W: G. '��� 2.IcMyriu where:a funeral  service was conducted b)- Rev. J. D. P.'  Knox- on Thursday afternoon in' the  presence of a large number of friends  from Midway and Greenwood. The  pall bearers were- Messrs. Thos. Mc-  Auley, Jas. McNrcol,- Robt. Kerr, C.  L. Thoinet, B. A. Haiti arid C. M.'  Melville. The body- was taken to the  C. P. R. station and thence by the outgoing: train to Ladner, B. C, where  the interment is to take place.  fiie late Mrs. Morris was a daughter  of Mrs. Kirkland of Ladner. Her  tiiother and brothers live at that  place. She was formerly a' school  school teacher and taught at Midway  for sometime up to 1896. The deceased  had a large circle of friends who sincerely regret her early' detniscand the  sympathy of the entire ' community  goesout to the bereaved husband.  '   :' '  Under Arrest.  William McAdams, editor of the  S'a'nd'Mi Paysireak, has been taken to  Victoria; by* tlie sheriff to" answer '':a  charge of contempt of .court. ' 'McAdams stated some things about the  supreme court judges and his free trip.  to the coast is the result. It was about  time some efforts were made to preserve the dignity of the supreme court  lijincH ' in this province but before any  Beneficial result care be hoped for,  action must be taken by those who get  somewhat neaxer the bench than  than the' 'sheriff's" officers. If  some' of the supreme' court judges'  ���Jfotild okly clothe themselves in that  dignity which is supposed. to'surrourid  'tIieir~lHgft~oflicerff^^ neces  sary to issue wrrrants for belligerent  editors. The supreme court should  not forget that it is possible to protest  too much. Their characters and tkeir  dignitier should be able to .withstand  the free and easy attacks that sonic-  times appear in up-country papers.  Possibly the courts wanted to give  Billy McAdams n. little excitement. He  certainly needed it, after publishing a  paper in Santlon.  Another Good Record.  An cither Greenwood boy creditably  passed his examination. John D.  Galloway who with his brother Charles  attended the Vancouver high school,  took the matriculation examination  for MctJill University. He received  t he results the other day which shows  tliot li''. passed with a big per centage  in his favor. His average for all subjects was over 75 per cent. Considering that Mastor Galloway is not yet  sixteen years tif age the showing is a  splendid one.  A.- J. McMillan  Managing Director of the Snowshoe  Has Reached Rossland-  Anthony .J.

"The returns of the city post office  ifor the year ending June 30th, 1902,  shows a large increase over the business transacted the previous year. Two  years ago the business was larger but  this is accounted for by reason of the  fact that in 3899 a large amount of  railway construction, was goihsr on.  and the employes used -the money-  order department for sending away  their earnings:; The amount of.busi-  ners done in.. this department is still  large���in fact much larger than locaL  business men would like to see it.

An effort was made during' the week  to secure the unanimous consent of the  business men to a Friday half-holiday.  A petition was circulated and received  the signature of all firms save one.  This has delayed putting- the half holiday into effect.  There is a general desire for a half  day's recreation- At present those  employed indoors have only Sunday  as a day of recreation with the result  that Sunday afternoon is spent by  many iu the pursuit of base ball and  other athletic sports. This is objectionable even to many who participate  in these games but in the absence of a  half holiday no othes time can be  found for necessary recrealion. During the summer months there is a feeling that there would be no loss-of business by reason of closing one afternoon each week. THE   BOUNDARY   CREEK   TIMES.

High school entrance exam ination is  . the crowning' effort of public" school  life. The boy who successfully takes  thi&exa.itiination gets a certificate that  he has "been sufficiently grounded in  the elementary subjects to warrant his  entrance into the high school where  higher subjects are taught. Any  ���flrealcness in teachinjr from the time  the pupil enters the public school; any  carelessness or skimming- over of subjects -during' the public term is sure to  be exposed in this examination. The  examination is general, covering1 all  ���he subjects in the curriculum. The  examination papers are set by the  education department which cannot  know the particular groove, if any, in  ���which the children have been educated  so that they must have a thorough  knowledge of the various subjects before they can expect to pass the examination.  The best guarantee of successful  teaching- is results and tl.e best results  are those attained in the final examinations.  Taking thU as a guage, it is interesting and gratifying1 to notice that  Greenwood has the best per centage of  any similar school in the province as  the following table will show :  1     '       1  SCHOOL  '       ��S    '  8-sl  "&S   *--*-���-���*-*������-*-*----*--*--  ._j^_  |  w   &<_.. ,  |,JVJ��,  once Commence the construction of a  big pulp mill.  In addition to the timber, the company will get a twenty thousand horse  power fall on Maple Creek, -where there  is a 45-ft. fall.  The deal will mean the expenditure  of a million dollars, of which $350,000  will be spent in connection with harnessing the water power and starting  the mills.  Under, the terms of agreement the  company will start work before September 15, and the whole works must  be completed and in operation before  1904. A cruiser has been up the coast  laud finds that all the timber can be  obtained a mile from shore, there being over 300 miles of coast line on  Quatsino Sound. The timber will be  hauled out by cable to the coast. Cruisers who have been along the coast,  find spruce all along streams, unlimited quantities of balsam and hemlock  on the higher ridges, and cedar in the  low lying places. The lease is for 21  years, and open to renewal.  The Victorians who are selling hold  forty per cent, of the.stock. No shares  will be placed on the market, as the  company has funds to proceed.  Markets will be obtained in Japan,  China and Australia. At first the ca  pacity will be 75 tons daily, and the  ultimata capacity will be 150 tons.  Henry Hewitt is at the head of the  Steel Co. He has pulp mills at Everett,  but the supply of timber for pulp has  so deteriorated that only a. third-class  article can now be produced. At Quatsino the very finest article can be  made as the quality of the timber there  is excellent."  It is gratifying to learn that foreign  capital intends building up a new and  important industry in this province. It  would be equally interesting to learn  how private individuals with a pull  acquired such a large area of public  lands.  NOTICE.

The  miners at Michel who went out  on  strike  on Monday,  July  2nd,   returned to work   on   Tuesday   of this  week.    The new regulation introduced  by  General Manager Tonkin  at   the  Coal Creek Mines did  not effect the  men  at Michel,  but sympathy for the  Fernie Miners  introduced them to go  oul.    Brieflly the history of the Michel  strike was as follows :   On Saturday,  June 31st,   the secretary  of the union  received  a   communication   from   the  Fernie union requesting that they call  - out the menin the mines there, and at  a  meetiug  held  Saturnay evening it  was decided  to . grant the request and  the men "were accordingly called out.  ��� The   membership   of   the    union    at  ! Michel only consistsof about one-third  of the employees of the company at  : that place, and considerable opposition  to the strike was expressed by the non-  ��� union men and  it was decided to call a  .* mass meeting.'on' Monday afternoon to  , have a general vote on the matter.This  idea /was  carried put and a ballot was  tak'en by : the. underground employees  resulting in favor of the men returning to  work by  a majority of 43, the  vote standing 56-13.    A large  number  of , the  union  men however refused to  vote on this occasion claiming that the  nun-union men had   no right to have a  voice in the matter.   Tuesday was a  holiday,  and on  Wednesday morning  only eighteen men  turned  up at the  mine,  the balance  being unwilling to-  be teimed scabs by the union men.  On  Thursday    some    23,    all    of  whom  were   foreigners   went   to   work   and  on   Friday   fifty-one.      On    Saturday  the   union...men, determied  to  put   a  stojTto what they called ''scab labor"  and   a   meeting   was   called   for   the  purpose,   but   the   foreigners   in   the  mine   got   wind   of   the   matter   and  deserted   their   work.    No one    went  to work Monday morning, but there'  was so. much   dissatisfaction expressed on all;sides  that it was determined   to   .call'/'another ��� meeting.   This  was done and a resolution was passed  stating   that  the   men   would  return  to work on   condition   that   the company  would  take back   all those implicated    in    starting   the   strike.    A  committee    of    four   were   appointed  to wait on,the superintendent to lay  J;the' resolution' before   him.

While in British  Columbia he began by telling the  people to quit spending all their time  in the pursuit of politics. This was  good advice. He returned home via  the Great Northern. Now Sir Thomas  does not often travel on any railway  but his own. While the Canadian  Pacific reflects the greatest credit upon the management, and while it  traverses a country than which there  is none more promising, still knowledge���useful knowledge���can be acquired by riding on another successful  railway president's line. The Great  Northern is James J. Hill's creation,  It was his genius and administrative  ability that made it one of the most  successful railways in the world. It is  ' y-' a. great railway worthy a great man.  T Sir Thomas no doubt kept his eyes and  ears open while travelling over Mr.  Hill's line. He noticed its engineering  perfections but what interested him  most was the traffic. He saw thousands of homeseekers coming west. He  saw them settle in Washington and  elsewhere on lands not as fertile as  those that are still unsettled in many  parts of British Columbia and the  Northwest and farther away from  ready markets. Sir Thomas sees  rapidly aud during that trip eastward  across the United States he had time  for contemplation. He thought of the  o many in British Columbia who would  be without occupation if they accepted  his advice and quit politics. It dawned  upon him that his advice was only  partial and that if he were going to be  a public benefactor he must suggest  an alternative to those who were  thrown out of employment by reason  of accepting his former advice. The  many homeseekers along the line of  the Great Northern impressed themselves on his mind. Why should not  the land of British Columbia be tilled  *nd support a large population,- of  happy and contented people? The  soil is:, arable, the climate the best,  and the minining towns of the interior  offer, the very best market for all farm  products. No sooner did Sir Thomas  get home than he sent forth advice  worthy of Henry George, "do back  to the land" he told the people. "A  country can never be.great while the  -���*���'*" people spend  their time in discussing  politics and the land remains uncultivated. If a province is to be sure,  solid, permanent, it must have farmers  and plenty of them.  The���faiLway"president's advice "is"  sound but the mere giving of advice  should not relieve him of all responsibility. The Canadian Pacific railway  was never a colonization road in  British Columbia. For political and  international reasons, the Kicking  Horse Pass was chosen as the entrance  into province for Canada's highway  with the result that the richest and  best parts of the province were not  opened up by the railway. In later  years the development of the mineral  resources of south-eastern British Columbia forced the C. P. R. to build the  Crow's Nest Pass road. That system  now terminates at Midway. To the  west along the valley of the Kettle  River, up the West Fork, along the  benches on those watersheds, on Anarchists Mountain���everywhere in  Southern British Columbia can be  found land suitable for the settler, but  uo transportation and consequently no  ' market for their produce. Around  Rock Creek and up the West Fork are  some beautiful farms but in the  absence of a railway there is no profit  in bringing produce to the nearest  market���Greenwood. The West Fork  country offers every inducement to the  farmer, the miner and the timber man.  But these want the assistance of the  railway builder.  If Sir Thomas would only quit  politics in British Columbia, it would  be so much easier for the people to  follow his advice and if he would build  more railways the inducements to go  back on the land would be much  greater.  Hot Air line was in Spokane. He was  indigtiant. He said the reports about  his road and its troubles were not  true. There was no quarrel between  the company and Mr. Morriss, thc3'  were still good friends and he deprecated the tendenC3r of irresponsible  newspapers like the Spokesman-Review  to publish idle rumors. Since then Mr.  Morris began suit and now the Hot Air  line's organ the Grand Forks News-  Gazette (which is now under brand  new management) pays its respects to  Mr. Morris in the following bit of  choice diction :  "The local public is familiar with  the fact that W . C . Morris, while  occupying the position of attorney  of the Kettle Valley Lines, left the  city suddenly in the night after  General Manager Holland had proposed to investigate the accounts  under Mr. Morris'  charge.  Mr, Morris says he is not guilty  of wrong doing; his sudden flight  was certainly not the course usual  ly pursued by an honest man. He  has been making all kinds of  threats against the company and,  has now caused an action to, be in-  tstituted against the company  claiming some interest in some  stock which had been issued in his  name as attorney for the parties in.  terested At all events the officers  of the company are not worried in  any way over any action Mr.Morris  may bring. They say he has not  and never has had any interest in  the company or its stock; on the  contrary any accidents which the  company has sustained are directly  attributable to the misconduct of  Mr. Morris while connected with the  road  Here is a pertinent query: why  dosen't Mr. Morris return to Grand  Forks?"  The peace that reigns in Hot Air  circles must be the sort that passeth  all understanding.  West Fork Notes.  [From our own Correspondent.]  BeaverdEi<t��� B. C, July 12, 1902.--  The rains iu the first week of July  caused a considerable raise in the  Kettle river and tributary streams, and  a consequent delay in crossing with  teams at the various fords will be experienced this year. In addition to  this also the temporary road which was  in use last summer has been washed  out'at - various" points' which" willstiH  further increase the delay.  The fishing in Beaver Creek and the  West Fork has been fairly good for  sometime past, but the real '"big 'uns"  which form the warp and woof of a  fish story are only to be found in some  mountain lakes about half a day's  journey to the north. A party of eight  ardent anglers returned from that  fisherman's paradise about a week ago  and numerous and varied are the yarns  which tell of the catch. Any report  which would limit the achievements of  that expedition can be put down ns an  envious slander upon the reputation  of the party for generous donations to  fish hunger which were made on their  return must be taken as evidence in  their favor.  A pleasure parly from Greenwood  consisting of Messrs. Frith, Bayley  and Humphrey did the camps this  week and speut an enjoyable time.  C. 2Ei. Shaw has been doing some  surveying in the district during the  past week ar two,*part of it being connected with the townsite of Beaverdell.  Speaking of railways,  of the Hot Air line are now before the  courts. W. C. Morris has begun action  in the U. S. courts for the purpose of  securing his alleged interest in the  stock of the road. The company apparently does not know where it is at  in the dispute. Last week Mr. Coffey  the manager of the loan company  which adyanced the money to build the  Like other,, industrial centres there  is the usual crop of accidents to  chronicle. Last week W. W.

He waited behind a tree for  the troubles ���tne customary length of time and on  stepping out a piece of rock which had  evidently lodged in the branches fell  on him cutting an ugly gash in his  head  T.

Flunierfelt and other  locailrepresentati ves of the company..  In j conversation: with: a '.'News-Advertiser" representative, Mr. Miner  stated that lie* was en route to Victoria,  but would return to Vancouver later iu  the week, and leave for Grand -Forks,  tor-visit the smelter, probably on  Thursday. He and his friends had  already been some time on the trip,  haying been* detained in-Alberta owing  to ���' the washout*-*'; on- the , Canadian  Pacific railway. . i   .  The attention of ,Mr.. Miner, was  drawn to the telegraphic advices published in aiuiday/s.^ew.s-AdvevUser"  from Grand Forks, intimat'ui;,'' that  haying^obtalned a supply of coke, the  smelter -had resumed   full operations  again. , ...  Commenting: upon this, Mr. Miner  stated; that although he did not know  the exact local conditions at thesinelter  npt having been to Grand Forks yet  on his present trip, it was correct, however, that the third furnace had been  re^startedi aud'-t'iiat-'th'e company would  as/it always Wad ^'endeavor' to-jju on  prosecuting its work, irrespective of  externalj-t^oubles," -as. far-as. it possibly  could.

As the matter really -stood, -the smelter needed  some 11 .cars, or over 200 tons of coke  daily^. to .enable it to be operated to its  full capacity. At the present time it  was^orily receiving' four cars daily  from'(the  Michel  coke   ovens, but it  ' ' " .' I ,,, ! ��� : '   - ' , i  had''managed to scrape up: a supply  from other sources, which had enabled  it'.to resume full operation.-*,.  ���Speaking: of conditions generally,  Mr.' Miiier remarked that the copper  market was satisfactory; at the present  time the demand was slightly in excess  of the supply. No small share of the  recent rise and lluctations in the copper, marl-jet had, however, little to do  with either* supply or. demand, but  with thciiKUiipulatioii of stocks on the  exchanges. ,   ��� -.    * *.*. ,  Asked whether his  company had entirely  given  up  the idea of erecting a  -*'   ',''^  : .      '        ���'���'",.  smelter on the coast, Mr. Miner did  not care to commit himself to any-  actual statement. At the present time  a refinery was more needed than a  smelter. The matter was in abeyance,  but that was all. It would be in the  interests of the Province, as a whole,  to have a refinery established and to  enable the Province and those interested in it to derive the most benefit  from it, it should be established at a  seaport.
