I  Important   Matters   Discussed-  Question of Fuel Supply.  -The  The fifth annual convention of the  Associated Boards of Trade of .Eastern  British Columbia which met., at Fernie  on Wednesday, March 18th, was a  great success. There was a good at-  . tendance and matters of public importance were seriously considered.  The discussions were of'a high order,'  ��� particularity *��on* the consideration of  the silver-lead question and the Greenwood resolution on the question of  fuel supply. In addition to President  Geo. O. Buchanan of Kaslo, and H. W.  C, Jackson the secretary-treasurer, the  various boards were represented by the  follovying :  CrKKKNwoon���G. Scott Galloway, J. R.

R.  Ross, H. Bentley and  Thos R. Stockett.  Kasi.0���Geo. O.  Buchanan and John  Keen.  The convention was called at eight  o'clock Wednesday  evening in  Princess Hall.   The  Fernie board looked  after the smallest details in providing  for the comfort and convenience of the  delegates.   The hall was nicely decorated, separate tables were arranged for  the delegates from  the various boards  and messenger boys were there to answer any calls that  might  be made on  them. '.*���.,  The committee    on   credent-'als   re  ported that delegates as given above  were entitled to seats. A programme  committee was then appointed as  follows :, C. Scott Galloway, chairman. W. R. Ross, Fcr.iie, secretary;  Dnncan Ross, Greenwood; R. W. Grigor, Rossland; Noble Binns, Trail, and  J. A. Harvey, Fort Steele. This committee presented resolutions from the  Kaslo board dealing with the preser  vation of forest fires, the setting aside  of 100,000 acres in East Kootnay as a  public park, the establishment of an  experimental orchard in the Rocky  Mountain region and the preservation  ���End propogation of fish in Kootenay  waters. These resolutions did not provoke much discussion although there  were some inquiries as to where 100,-  00C acres of unalienated lands could be  found in East Kootenay. The convention then adjourned until 9:30 Thursday morning.  At. the morning session the Associated Boards decided to take no further  steps towards securing the formation  of a provincial Board of Trade.  A resolution endorsing the views of  the silver-lead mines on the silver-lead  question was introduced by Trail. A  vote was about to be taken without  discussion when J. R. Brcwn of Greenwood, asked for some .information. It  would be folly to pass a bald resolution  unless the movers were prepared to  convince the people of the east that  protection was a good thing.  Duncan Ross also pointed out that  the east had to be convinced and even  some people in the west had to be convinced that any benefits to be derived  from the double-barrelled protection  asked for should accrue to the producer  and not to the smelters.  R. W. Grigor of Rossland who has  made a special study of the subject  spoke briefly  in  favor of the position  of the silver-lead mines and Mr.  Buchanan made what'was considered  the best speech of the convention." The  silver-lead question is a hobby \ with  him and possibly no man in Canada is  better posted on this rather intricate  subject. He stated that an agreement  had been signed by the smelters in  which they waived the rights to all  benefits that might arise from a revis  ion of the tariff. Free trade might be  all right or Protection all right but  what he did object to was that the  silver-lead industry should be the only  one in Canada ' to which free trade  principles were applied.  The resolution then passed without  opposition.  Another resolution was passed asking the Dominion government to extend the time in which lead smelters  could earn the hounty granted by the  Dominion government.  .  A resolution was passed asking the  Dominion government to appoint 'i  commission to consist of three competent persons to visit New Zealand to  investigate the operation of the act  providing for the comoulsory/'iarbitra-  tion of labor disputes and to rteport :the  result of their investigations. *���> y ���*'  . Another resolution asked that;rail-  way and steam ship companies include Kootenay and Boundar^: points  in their advertising literature*^ encouraging tourist travel and to malje transportation interchangeable over various  linos.  Nelson introduced a resolution asking for provincial legislation that  would make it imperative for the provincial government* to investigate  labor disputes arid promptly publish  all the facts connected therewith. The  Greenwood delegates "introduced an  amendment asking for action -'"������*���'/'i,*  part of the federal lnstean of *'��� > . -  cial government a,nd, the. amendment  carried. ��� ,'    ;  The Rossland resolution asking the  Dominion    government,   to   corifciniie  ?-itd>a:ni-W--J^^  carried' unan i motialy.  The Rossland resolution asking that  the South East Kootenay reserves be  open to coal and oil locations and one.  from the Fernie board asking that  these reserves be reserved for preemption and settlement only were  passed. ���,���*���'*  The Associated Boards endorsed resolutions from Fernie and Cranbrook  asking for better court and other  facilities.  A resolution condemning provincial  aid to transcontinential lines was passed as was also one from Fort Steele  endorsing aid to local development  roads.  "Then the"Green wood resolution deal^  ing with the fuel supply and asking  the Dominion government to open an'd  develop its own coal measures was  brought up. J. R. Brown led the discussion in a strong and logical speech  in which he pointed out the importance  of cheap fuel in the treatment of low  grade ores but the greater importance  attached to a full and reg ular supply  of fuel. He strongly urged the passage of the motion as he believed it  was the only practical solution of the  difficulties which at present crippled  the mining industry of South Eastern  British Columbia. Mr. Brown pointed  out that operation- by the government  would not prevent strikes but there  was something to be said in favor of  government ownership. Every elector  was a shareholder and had a right to  demand the fullest investigation of  any dispute. On the other-hand with  private ownership such investigation  could not be conducted without the  permission of the company operating  the mines. This was the strongest  argument against compulsory arbitration. Private owners could refuse an  investigation of their property and  books. The residents of the mining  districts would be particularly interested in the government mines and should  any labor disturbance occur they would  see that an investigation was promptly  held.  W. F. Gurd seconded the motion and  C. Scott Galloway then dwelt upon the  importance of a regular supply of fuel  which the smelters were unable to  secure at present. There was a precedent for the government operating  its own coal measure since New Zealand had decided to operate all coal  mines in that colony.  James Johnston of Nelson said the  resolution   was   a    most   unwise   oqe  since if the Dominion government decided to open up its own coal lands the  agreement with the Crow's Nest, Pass  Coal company would be cancelled and  the price.of coal arid coke would immediately go up. The company should  never have made such an agreement  and would riot have made it had they  known anything about the coal business. Coal oould not be produced for  S2 a ton. The cost of production was  higher at Ftrnie than^any where else  in the world. He instanced the.fact  that the company had invested $85;000  in 60 coke ��� ovens to supply the ,B. C.  smelters and every one of. these ovens  had fallen down in a short time. .This  loss should have been charged up to  the consumer-hut tinder the agreement  witli the gHV.-ri. merit the company  wi-ra unable to do so. The government could not operate.its coal measures without a loss , arid he as a tax  payer objected to paying additional  taxes in order that the. Bounndary  smelters might have cheap fuel.  Thos. R. Stockett, superintendent of  the Crow's Nest Pass Coal company  said the company had' no objection to  the adoption cf the resolution because  if the government acted upon it the  company irould be free to -charge what  they pleased for coal and if the price  of coal was raised the price of icoke  would also go up because they were  not going to convert "coal' into coke  when they could get more money by  selling coal. As a member of the  board he was opposed to the* resolution  as he considered it a most unwise one  to pass. He explained that the reason  the coke ovens fell down .was that they  were apxious that ��� they were anxious  to. buy supplies at home .arid had to  sbrid to. England for brick. -.These  *.*���"- :i ffected'by salt moisture in cros's-  ��� ij_,-* uie ocean; ..Since, then they were  using American������br.ick which worked*  satisfactorily: He also stated that the  Boundary smelters .had   received!..so.  ex ten siori, the compariy ylilMiSttly be  in a-position to sttppljr'ittK) tb.hsofcoke  pfer'day. ' '*.'"... *;:.-,���'-* *:���'.''.-.���y'-- -| *  - J} 'A. Harvey of Fort Steele held  that*the! goverrment could, opt Operate  as -economically as ,a private^.corporation.' .That individuals 'had ' certain  rights which were ; almost':iiiv-iri'e and'  that the government had - no jright to  enter into competition with any -bbdy.'  Mr. Ross a��ked Mr. Haryey if he;really  ���believed in the Divine right theory?  Geo. O. Buchanan ridiculed the resolution. It "bore' all .the' earmarks of  Socialism, populism and was like the  cry of free'silver which was a panacea  for all ills in the United States a short  time ago. It was unfortunate that all  those crazy ideas should slop over, into  this country.. If the government were  going into the coal business in B. C.  they should also go into the same business in Nova Scotia, It was not the  kind of proposition which should come  before the Associated Boards of Trade,  which was supposed to be comprised of  sensible, business men.  Duncan Ross first took up Mr. Johnston's arguments and stated that it  might be possible for .the Dominion  government to have coke ovens built  that would not fall .'own. Mr. Johnson was not prepared to tax himself to  help the mines and smelters of the  Boundary. In Ihe morning he was  enthusiastic about taxing himself by  increased protection to .help out the  silver-lead industry; to be consistent  he should be equally.patriotic with regard to the copper-gold industry. Mr.  RosSjwas not prepared to endorse Mr.  Harvey's statement that the government could not operate coal mines and  make as much profit as private companies, but even if it vvere true, it  might possibly be a good thing for the  country. Profits were sometimes made  at ��� the expense of men who had some  rights as well as the companies. With  less greed for profits it might be' possible to remove the causes for the  frightful loss of life and also the chief  causes,,for the many labor disturbances. Mr. Stockett. had practically  threatened the associated boards by  stating that the passage of the resolution would mean increased price, of-  coke. There were no terrors in that'  threat uince the company were charging today just as much as the smelters  could afford to pay and that was all  company could get for its coke. By  refusing to convert the coal into coke  the company would be   violating the  law. The only market for the coal  would be on the American side and the  Crow's Nest Pass .'railway charter was  secured on the .expressed provision  that no coal or coke could be diverted  until Canadian interests were first  servid.  Since attending the meetings of the  Associated Boards of Trade he was  siiriply lost in admiration at the very  clever way in ��� which Mr. Buchanan  could bolster up a very bad case, but,  in the five years of the Associated  Board's existence there was nothing  quite so brilliant as the worthy president's exhibition that afternoon. Mr.  Buchanan talked about the govern  ment coal milling in Nova Scotia for  getting that the government in its  wisdom had/made legislative provision  for the very contingency which was  being discussed. In the act granting  aid to trie Canadian Pacific railway it  was expressly stated* that the 50,000  acres were. reserved for the purpose  the Greenwood board.had in view. Mr.  Buchanan must have been desperately  driven for ari argument when he resurrected the free silver discussions of  several years ago. It was not pleasant to, be called hard names but hi  would; rather, be called a socialist,  populist, free silverite or any old thing  and at the same time do something to  advance the' best interests of this  country, than never do anything but  oppose everything,;that would encourage.progress and development.  Mr. Beer of Nelson also made a  strong speech in favor of the resolution.  Mr. Brown ridiculed the* arguments  advanced against .the resolution. He  was amused at Mr. Stockett's state-  irient that the smelters had so much  coke they could afford to sell to each  other. They often sold to each othi i  it was true but- it was-only because; the  Crow's Nest company could not'supply  them, arid .'they ;were. forced to sell or  lend so that alllj the .smelters;=iriigh t be  'kept going. 'He made a strong; appeal  : ttf>the! 'A^ss6'ciated' Boards to passj the  resolution'- and thus ��� endorse the only  practical means of .securing relief for  the important industry that is at present at a standstill for the wan' of  fuel.'"'' "   i  was then adjourned  wheri those opposed  had unearthed the  by the Greenwood  board last year to the effect that the  Dominion government should lease its  coal lands. The Greenwood delegates  were charged with inconsistency in  advocating an entirely different policy  this .;year and the convention was  urged to reaffirm last year's resolution.  The Greenwooddelegates retorted that  consistency was ari enemy' to progress  and that in any, event nothing was  done by the government; probably because last year's resolution-was wrong,  something might now be done because  this year's resolution was right. Mr.  Brown pointed out how inconsistent  some of them were, since they said  coal could not be produced for $2.00  and now they are advocating a resolution limiting the price to $1.75.  Mr. Harvey of Fort Steele and Mr.  Binns of Trail then moved last year's  resolution as an amendment to the one  brought forward by Greenwooddelegates. The amendment carried by a  vote of eleven to nine as follows :  Ayes���Harvey, Grace, Kershaw, W.  R. Ross, Bentley, Stock*:tt, Binns,  Moore, McKenzie, Heiley, Johnstone.  Noes���Galloway, Brown, Duncan  Ross, Wilcox, Gurd. Hutchison, Beer.  Grigor for himself and president.  A resolution was passed urging the  ���Dominion government to improve the  mail service in the Kootenay and recommending daily mails on Crow's  Nest, a mail clerk on the Columbia &  Western and a resident post-office inspector.  East year's resolution asking for  maps of -unoccupied lands was reaffirmed. Rossland was unanimously selected as the next place of meeting and  the .convention  adjourned.

When spring does get a start  snow and frost disappear with remarkable rapidity, and when the influence  of high grade properties begins to be  felt stagnation and dull times soon  vanish. The simile may'not be nicely  phrased but- it is drawn from actual  facts with regard to spring and the  high grade properties. We have both  right here in Greenwood. The season  is so far advanced that already the  base ball enthusiasts have hada couple  of match games and the high grada  properties have reached a state of  development that spells success.  Greenwood reaps the full benefit of  Let us get down to  indication' of' dull  houses ornamented  sign.- /There Jiave  been man)' of those signs displayed iu'  Greenwood as well an in other mining  towns, but they are rapidly" vanishing.  Houses that have been vacant for 12  months or more are now tenanted.

The demand for houses particularly in the northern end ,of the  town has been so great that all vacant  places are. now filled and.men of means  are arranging to erect comfortable  cottages to be rented to the best tenants that can be*obtained anywhere.  One of these new residences has been  started on Kimberley Ave and others  will follow.

Place ore , such as that in  Russell-Law-Caul field company's window on exhibition on Riverside ave.,  Spokane and it would draw a crowd of  those who know gold when they see it  and can appreciate the value of high  grade ore. Tell the.

The poor newspaper man who has  no high grade mines of his own can  get some satisfaction out of the new  discovery and development. They  furnish copy. A week does not pass  without some new deal, some new lease  or bond, some new strike.

The Greenwood people are slow but  when they do start they travel somewhat rapidly. We predict that there  there will yet be what would elsewhere  be called a boom in high grade mines  and that it is fast approaching.

Tonkin. He comes from Pennsly-  vania and has no use for organized  labor.  Many of the miners working in the  company's mines are ignorant foreigners, many of whom do not know what  they are striking for and even if they  did cannot he depended upon to remain  true to 'hemselves or their union.  A committee of the British Columbia  \Tf,,!n-    A ss/i-ii'inn   '.���"(���nt t"   FPT-l'fifor  .i.jutit   a  settlement il ,****-..-.ili'ie.  The committee is well balanced and  its members did as much as any body  of men could do to settle the strike.  They took evidence under oath and  endeavored to unravel a tangle that is  in many respect unique and for which  no parallel can be found in the history  of labor disturbances.  During the progress of the investigation it became apparent to officers  of the Western Federation of Miner's  that the unions at Fernie, Morrissey  and Michel were horey combed with  traitors. Paid agents of John H.  Tonkin masqueraded as loyal union  men.  One of the leaders of the foreign  element "was paid by the Crow's Nest  ��ass Coal company, to go to Rossyln,  Wash., and bring men over to replace  the strikers receiving so much per  head for the men brought over. Others  came from Pennsylvania at the expense of the coal company.  The business transacted at the secret  meetings of the Miner's Unions became, the property of John H. Tonkin  any time he so desired.  As the investigation proceeded it  also became apparent that John H.  Tonkin was not anxious for a settlement.  His main object was to crush the  union and work the mines by nonunion labor.  He plainly intimated this to theconi-  inissisn. He stated that he would go  so far and no further and that if the  men did not go back to work on his  terms that he csuld fill his mines with  non-union men and that the government would be called upon to protect  him.  The surest way of getting government intervention in the interests of  John H. Tonkin was by moulding  public opinion against the men.  The surest way of securing such an  expre*sion of pnblic opinion was by  some act of violence which could be  charged up to the men.  Curiously enough the act of violence  was forthcoming just at the right  time.  and were started towards Michel. Next  morning they were picked up by a  special train sent out by John H.  Tonkin.  Exaggerated reports   of   this act of  violence was sent to the coast papers.  On the one hand was John  H.  Ton  kin making a fight against organized  labor; on the other hand was the Western Federation -of Miners determined  that organized labor should triumph.  Who would succeed ?  The officers of the Western Federation of labor came to the conclusion  that a successful fight could not be  made for a district union within whose  ranks were traitors and spies and the  paid agents of John H. Tonkin.  They decided that the union must be  purged before they could hope to make  a successful fight.  Under the circumstances they decided to get the best terms possible  from John H. Tonkin and advise the  men to go back to work.  They and the commission met Mr.  Tonkin on Saturday last. They got  his best offer. The officers of the  Western Federation of Miner's stated  that  they   �����������������! : ������*������   me���   to  accept t.. - . ti  They did so. But the vote was overwhelmingly against any settlement on  those terms.  The above describes the situation as  seen by the writer who spent two days  in Fernie. We do not think it does an  injustice to either side.  It is useless commenting on the  situation. But surely at this late day  there should be some legislation that  would prevent a district like the  Boundary being ruined through no  fault of its own���a district where we  have sensible mine managers and  sensible men and where we never had  any labor trouble.  It is rather a striking commentary  on our civilization and our advanced  legislation when a Pennsylvania!!,  thoroughly saturated with all the ideas  that have wrought such havoc there  and a lot of ignorant foreigners from  the slums of Europe should successfully  cripple the miuing industry without  apparently any machinery to meet  such a situation.

Nearly every Liberal in this province  recognizes this fact except Joseph  Martin. Neither can a certain faction  of Vancouver Liberals furnish the rest  of the province with a new leader.  Ralph Smith deserves better treatment  than is being accorded him by the  Vancouver Liberals. He is too good a  man to make his appearance as a  leader under their very undistinguished patronage. The Vancouver Liber  als have decided that Ralph Smith is  the man and that a convention must  be held to ratify their decision Every  Liberal convention held has been exploited in the selfish interest of a certain faction of the Vancouver Liberals.  The Liberals of the interior are weary  of attending conventions for the sole  purpose of witnessing the unedifying  spectacle of coast Liberals washing  their dirty linen. They are anxious to  attend conventions for the purpose of  promoting the interests of the province  and of the party  and  not to engage in  Bonds, Stationery and Office  Supplies, Etc.  idwinter Special Sales  Continue in every department all during the month  of February  New Goods Arriving daily.

After considerable discussion Duncan Ross was added to the committee and they were  given further time to report.  J'. C. Haas of Spokane and formerly  of Greenwood was present and he gave  the board some valuable suggestions  regarding advertising the high  grade ores near Greenwood. Duncan  Ross read a letter from F.

Paul Johnson left on Saturday for  Prince of Wales Island,. Alaska, to  look over the ground preparatory to  erecting a smelter there. On his way  out ho arranged to superintend the  erection of a smelter at Sandpoint,  Idaho, for the Panhandle Smelter company.  Geo. Findlay, road superintendent,  having finished the work in protecting  the North Fork bridge, returned to the  city, this week and will proceed up the  West Fork to assist in rushing the  erection of the bridges. It it. likely  that the wagon road will also be com  pleted as quickly as possible.  E. E. Chipman, Kaslo, Dr. West-  wood and W. J. Cook, Grand Forks,  were over on Thursday to attend the  meeting of the Masonic lodge. * Mr.  Chipman is Grand Master of the order  and his visit was an official one. The  local brethern suitably entertained  the distinguished visitors.  On Tuesday the 24th the first base  ball game of the season was played at  liotindav-y Falls between the- Greenwood nine and the smelter nine. The  play was lively from start to finish  and resulted in a score of 21 to 13 in  favor of Greenwood. A return match  will be played in the near future.  At meetings of the Greenwood and  Rambler Tennis clubs held last week  it was resolved to amalgamate the two  cliibs into one. A meeting has been  called for'Monday night the 30th inst.,  at 8:15 p. ni., in the Board of Trade  rooms to elect officers for the ensuing  season and to discuss other matters of  interest. l<ast year's members of the  two clubs and intending new members  are requested to attend.  The committee appointed by the  Board of Trade to look into the matter of establishing a market in Greenwood, interviewed the members of the  city council at their regular meeting  on monday evening. .The committee  which is comprised of Julius Ehrlich  chairman, Geo. R. Naden and W. M.  L,aw said that they were anxious to  secure the co-operation of the council  in establishing a market here. Mr.  Ehrlich pointed out the advantages of  having a market here. It would benefit the town and also the farmers. It  would centralize trade ir Greenwood.  With a market establish"-! hotel men  and boarding* house keepers from surrounding"camps "would "come here "to  secure supplies. The scheme would  not be made a success unless house to  house peddling was discouraged and  he understood that the license on peddlers could be increased sc that it would  be more profitable to sell in the merket  than peddle.  After some discussion the council  passed a resolution endorsing the project and offered the committee every  reasonable encouragement towards the  establishment of such a market.  The street committee was authorized  to carry out. certain improvements on  Lonisa street, clean the crossing and  do other needed work.  After some routine work the council  adjourned until Friday evening when  several by-laws will be reconsidered.
