Their Nominee For  Yale-Cariboo, Hands the Party a  Few Bouquets���Nominate Assola-  tion Officers For*Campaign.  This week the Timks is "pleased to  record another deal in mining* property  of importance. Not only important because of the value of the claims involved in the bond, but because of the fact  that Frederick Keffer, general manager of the B. C. Copper company, and  J. E. McAllister, superintendent of the  company's smelter here, are the parties  named as having bonded the property,  the assumption being that the trans-action is in the interest of the strong  mining company they represent.  The deal includes five claims, known  as the Bruce group, iii Graham's camp,  six or seven miles southwest of Greenwood, the Bruce, Jubilee, Pride of  Perth, Northumbrian and Durham.  The bond was given by J. C. Haas,  Sydney M. Johnson and associate owners. The amount of the bond is not  stated by the principals in the deal,  but is said to be between $50,000 and  $75 000.  Something- like $3000 worth of work  has already been drjne. on the group,  principally on the Bruce claim, which,  has a 200-foot tunnel, some open cuts,  and the ledge has been stripped for a  considerable distance;  According to the terms of the bond,  work on the group must commence before the 2?.nd of this month and proceed continuously during the life of  the bond, or eighteen months.  The character of the ore is said to  rank among- the hig-hest grades of copper ore properties in the Boundary,  and.alsocarries some=gold- and silver.  The Bruce group was staked in 1894  by A. Symons and J. Wallace who allowed their reeords to lapse, and was  afterwards restaked in 1895 by Mr.  Haas,  This deal was put through by G. R.  Naden, manager of the Bealey  Investment company.  Chief of Police Receives Additional  Instiuctions.  The Chief of Police of Greenwood  has been served with the following  letter of instructions, signed by the  new police commissioners, Sutherland  and Parker:  The Chirk of Pouch,  Greenwood, B. C.  Sik:���  You are hereby instructed to carry  out the provisions of section 7, chapter  124 of the R. S. of 13. C, as to closing  all places where liquor is disposed of  by wholesale or retail between the  hours of eleven o'clock Saturday night  and one o'c ock Monday morning. Also section 3 of the Liquor Traffic Regulations Act, Amendment Act, 1899, as  to gambling* for money or for checks  or other devices that represent money.

Mr. Andrews comes to  fill the vacancy in the Bank of Commerce here, resulting in the transfer of  teller A. J. Burnside from the local  bank to a like position at Skagit,  Alaska. Mr. Burnside has been a  faithful official of the local institution  for nearly two years, and had made a  Lost of friends who regret his departure today for his new field of labor.  '��*v  Wednesday evening Greenwood Conservatives assembled in the Board of  Trade rooms in the Windsor hotel to  place themselves on an organized  foundation for the coming Dominion  contest. The gathering was held under the auspices of the local Conservative association, one of the purposes of  which was to officer the organization  for the campaign, and another was to  listen to an address by Mr. Burrell,  who is sizing* up the situation now and  then by a sortie from his own town into neghboring sections. The election  of officers resulted as follows: Dr.  Spankie having declined to act further  as the actual president of the association, owing to pressure of professional  duties, was elected honorary president;  Sydney M. Johnson was chosen president; W. B, Fleming, vice-president;  E.G. Warren, secretary.  An executive committee consisting* of  five was made up as follows: Arthur  Rendell, John S. Coles, F. M. Elkins,  J. P. Myers-Gray and Phil McDonald.  A resolution expressive of regret for  the retirement of Dr. Spankie from the  presidency of the association, and also  eulogistic of the valuable services he  had rendered it as its former executive  head, was heartily adopted.  The question of holding- a public  meeting was discussed, but it was  thought better"! to defer such until the  return of Mr. Ross, who will contest  Yale-Cariboo riding with Mr. Burrell,  as the Liberal nominee.  Mr. Burrell's remarks were listened  to with interest and appreciation, and  he was enthusiastically endorsed as the  party's nominee for Yale-Cariboo.  Mr. Burrell left Tuesday for a trip to  Rock Creek' and Anarchist nibutftain,  to round up those of his political faith  and cheer them with some of his well  known eloquency of speech.  TO BOND  THE HELEN  Claim   Adjoins   Anaconda  Townsite.  HAS II III! FOOT 811  Deal Will Go Through and Work to  Commence 1st April.  Panther Ate His Dog.  Last week A. Castleman of Boundary  Falls had an experience with a panther,  which he does not care to repeat, although, fortunately, no one was hurt  but the panther and Mr; Castleman'*  pet dog*, which were both killed. Mr.  Castleman went"to "the" stable^in*the  morning to feed his horses, and upon  opening the door saw what he supposed  to be a dog partly hidden in some hay.  He reached down to touch the dog  when the animal, which proved to be a  huge panther, sprang out and ran  down a little gulch a short distance  away. Mr. Castleman in company  with his son, James, both armed with  rifles went in pursuit and after firitig  several shots, all of which took effect,  they succeeded in killing the panther.  It was afterwards found that the animal was taking a breakfast off Mr.  Castleman's dog when he was discovered beneath the hay in the stable.���  Midway Dispatch.  A B. C. LUMBER CO. IN TROUBLE.  Liberal discunts on all winter underwear at Hunter-Kendrick's.  Composed of Americans Who Would  Evade Stumpagre Tax.  John Murray of. Vancouver,  forest ranger for the provincial  g*overnnient, has seized log*s, lumber and a logging camp outfit,  valued at S30,000, and has tied  up a sawmill at Sidney, B. C,  all because the American owners  of the same are alleged to have  evaded payment of the government tax of 50 cents per thousand  feet cut. The unpaid tax due the  government is estimated at $2000.  The confiscated logs measure a  million feet and the lumber in  the milVyard aggregates 800,000  feet and was ready for shipment  to Puget sound. The company  owning the logs, lumber and mill  is composed of stockholders residing in Tacoma, Seattle and  Blain.  The Helen claim, adjoining- Anaconda townsite, on which considerable  work has been done, but which has  been idle for some time, is about to resume work, or at least by thefirst of  next month. It is understood that the  company owning* the Helen group,com-  posed largely of local people, is negotiating- with outside parties who desire  to bond the property. In fact it is  stated that the deal has been closed,  with the exception of the signatures of  the principals who are seeking the  bond, who only await the reeurn of  their representative from Greenwood.  To-night, hockey match between the  Greenwood seniors and Phoenix seniors at skating rink.  Warren Cup Won by J. S.

A "Chum" Government.  The Sloean   Drill,   eUted  and  says  iv.'or  owned  by  a   Conservative  that   the  Jolly-McBride   government overlooks Conservatives in  making appointments in  Slogan  riding.    The   Drill   labors  ni'iiK-i*  the delusion that British Columbia  has  a   Conservative government.    It has not.    It has a government made  up  of    "chums1*  who belong to the same fraternal  societies.    They recognize no obligations to party.    They receive  high office -from a  Liberal,  and  they are kept in oflice by two Socialists and   a  Labor  man   from  Sloean.    They could not remain  in office a day through the  votes  of Conservatives. Imagine "Bob"  Green appointing  a Conservative  to office  in   order  to strengthen  the Conservative party !  Imagine  ���"Dick"   McBride    appointing   a  Conservative to office ! "Charles"  Wilson does not know what the  word Conservative means !    Captain Tatlow is from the North of  Ireland !     Fred Fulton  of Kamloops is a Conservative; but then  he- is only president of the council !    No;   British. Columbia has  at present a government made up  of non-descripts, kept in office by  a combination  of Conservatives,  Liberals,   Socialists  aud   Labor-  ites. ,.It -represents  no   political  principles; it has no policy; it is  merely a small  baud   of  chums  with but one idea.    The one idea  is, if  we lose  office we are nobodies.���Nelson Tribune.  l'orks  Nelson, Lesli*.  15. Kiri.iy; !.\V.v  Vancouver.  Victoria,  K.  v    W.

The convention also passed a  resolution urging tlie Dominion  government to appoint a minister  of mines from the Pacific coast.

The citj council held a regular  meeting Monday evening, the 29th  ult. There were present'Mayor  Naden and Aldermen Bunting,  Parker, Caulfield and McNeil.  Communications were read by  the clerk from Crane & Co.,  which was referred to the city en-  gineei; from the Provincial Secretary re appointment of local  'commissioners, which was filed;  and from Auditor Hodges, asking*  for leave of absence for three  months.  Major Van Buskirk avIio had  come here to assist iu itivestgat-  ing matters relative to the city's  proposed new water system, addressed the council, giving it an  outliue of his report, which was  not yet ready in detail, but which  he promised for the next meeting  of the council.  The usual annual petition re  enforcement of statutes beariug  on sale of liquor and gambling  was referred to the license commission.  A committee consisting of  Mayor Naden, Aldermen Caulfield  and Parker was appointed to  proceed to Anaconda and interview the citizens of that place in  the matter of water supply.  Liberal Leader Speaks-  The leader of the Liberals in  the local legislature, Mr. Mac-  donalr!, was interviewed by the  Rossland Miner on his return  from -Victoria-and- has the following to say on the premier's railway programme: "Of the McBride railway policy, the premier  had promised one before the election and had reiterated the pledge  in the speech from the throne.  He also promised on two or three  other occasions to declare himself  on this important subject before  the Christmas recess. Nothing,  however was clone until after recess, when, after repeated questionings from the opposition, he  promised a definite pronouncement before prorogation. Evcry-  body knows that the legislature  was prorogued without cither the  house or the country being satisfied in any single particular. We  are no wiser than we were six  months ago. The result of such  tactics is obvious. These uncalled for and preposterous delays  are retarding the development of  the country to a very serious extent, and evidence is not wanting  of no little dissatifaction, even  among McBride's supporters in  the house."  fork of the Kettle river. It was  given out a short time ago  that the company was prepared  to go ahead with this branch as  soon as provincial aid was guaranteed, and although the government did not formulate a railway  policy at the last session, yet it is  pretty well understood that the  Kettle Valley company has the  assurance from the McBride government that the promised aid  will be granted. George A.  Fraser, M. L,. A., who has just  returned from the session recently  closed, says there is no reason  why the company should not be  at work on the road in .".) days.  This is taken to indicate that  the questiou of provincial aid is  practically settled.  Wanted Surveys.  Scarcely a day passes that does  not bring with it an enquiry regarding the climate, land available for settlement aud other information respecting this district.  Many of Sthese enquiries are addressed to this office, and to each  every available scrap of printed  information is sent together with  additial written response to special questions. A large proportion  of these seekers after information are very anxious to know all  that can be told them of the valley  of the North Thompson and its  resources.  It seems au absurdity that, tak-  iug* into consideration the enor-  mous civil service pay lists and  the large sums spent annually in  government surveys, none of the7  goverment officials or departments  are capable of supplying the information these people want.  Nor is this state of affairs confined to the Kamloops district.  The same conditions exists in  Okanagan, Similkameen and other parts of the province; it is odd  that they should obtain in those  parts of British Columbia best  adapted to fruit growing, agriculture and stock raising. These  art: the industries that will give  our province stable prosperity  and yet, beyond mere generalities,  there is no Government official  to whom intending settlers can  turn for definite information with  any hope of getting it.  One of these days the province  may be blessed with a government that, will see the wisdom of  FRASER STILL HAS FAITH  That McBride Will Give Aid to Railways Up North Fork.  Grand Forks, B.

This promise for the future is not  based on hot air either. It is  based on the expenditure of large  sums of money in the past four  or five years to prove the ore deposits and make mines out o.f undeveloped prospects. This development work and its results  has laid a foundation for the  building of a great and wealthy  commonwealth in the Boundary.  Of course in the rush of the boom  many men acted under the influence of a stimulus that led  them into many excesses, from  which they are today suffering,  but the day is nearjit hand when  the demand for their surplus  realty and wares will lift them  out of the slough of despond, as  it were, through which they have  been struggling for the past  three years. So with the prospectors and claim holders who  have almost swamped themselves  doing assessment work aud paying government fees. Their  time is coming too, and that  soon.  The reader may say "hot air,"  "where is the writer's bright star  of hope?" Everyone may sec it,  who will stop to look. What are  the investors who have demonstrated their faith in the country  by their works doing ? Are they  not enlarging their plans all the  time? ��Are they not bonding  claim after claim? Are they not  consolidating and fortifying  themselves? When the Montreal  & Boston Copper company and  the Dominion Copper company  have completed their plans of consolidation; when the Snowshoe  company and the B. C. Copper  company have done likewise;when  the V.,V. & E. railway branch  is completed, as it be will this com  ing summer, thus bringing to the  front many valuable mining prospects now inaccessible; when the  Granby company erects another  8-furnace smelter plant, as Mr.  Graves says his company will,  and when it begins that long bore  for which it has secured permission from the government, then  the Boundary will be full of **I  told you so's,"  but who have iu  the past ridiculed their local  papers for their efforts to encourage their patrons by continually  looking ou the bright side of conditions, though suffering* more  than any other institution from  lack of deserved support.  The Republican papers, over  the high fence to the south, are  wasting much time and space in  an effort to bury Wm. J. Bryan,  who has been politically iu a  comatose condition for a long  time; but many of these journals  have a fear that he may recover  consciousness again and g*ive  them a pain. They had better  pay less attention to Mr. Bryan's  case and keep their eyes on W.  R. Hearst. Billy's mama is iu  possession of more than a modicum of this world's goods, and  her beloved sou, who also has a  goodl}- bank account, can draw  on the old lady for anywhere  from one to ten millions, aud she  promises to call even7 million the  trusts put up for Roosevelt.  There is a war on in Grand  Forks that puts;the disturbances  in the far east in the shade, so  far as that town is concerned.  And Its all about the manner in  which the city's financial statement for the past fiscal year was  made up. The person who has  heretofore audited the city's accounts didn't get the job this  year, hence he is roasting the  fellow who was employed to do  this-workt-audyi as -succeeded -in  making some of the tapayers who  don't pay any taxes think there's  a nigger in the woodpile. The  local newspapers are quite important factors in the case, too.  Geo. A. Fraser, it is alleged,  has given his constituents, who  are clamoring for coal aud oil  licenses, a written pledge by  McBride that they will be issued  May 1st. Georg-e has also promised that the North Fork railway  scheme will receive a bonus boost  iu the "good old summer time."  Stay with it George. Don't let  your stock of promises run down,  if you would go higher in the  political way. If your constituents become restless and do not  tbrieve on promises, try the doctrine of Christian Science on  them.  the Northern people answer "I  guess so," and those of the South  say "I reckon so." The answer  was because the people of the  North could guess better than  those of the South could reckon.  The Phoenix Pioneer estimates,  which is equivalent to a guess,  that 1,300 men are employed in  the Boundary mining industry,  and that this small army requires  a pay roll of $140,000 per mouth,  or $1,000,000 annually.  The following from' an exchange will prove a help to many  who are trying to keep informed  on the Japanese-Russian embro-  lio: Readers of the war news  need not be troubled in trying to  pronounce Russian names. Any  old name that ends with "ski"  will do; for instance, Bullybluff-  ski, Killajewski or Skinuafinnski.  It remains to be seen if Scalpa-  japski will ever become an appropriate name.  The annual report of J. S.  Martin, secretary of the Phoenix  General Hospital, makes a good  showing and pleasing reading to  the enterprising citizens of that  place who so generously and persistently labor for the maitenance  of so worthy and beneficial an  institution. . Besides paying its  running expenses it has made improvements costing $1400 which  are all paid for. One hundred  and forty patients were treated  at the hospital during the past  vear.  From the showing the Crow's  Nest Pass Coal Co. ought to deal  liberally with the men who get  out the coal and place it ori the  market. The last annual, report  rendered recently shows that the  net profits for the year are $310,-  492.28. Four quarterly dividends  were paid of 2}4 per cent.  Several ranchers down ou  Fourth of July creek are in luck.  The V. V. & E. railway, in order  to get right-of-way without delay, have surveyed the pre-emption claims for the claimants, in  order that crown grants may be  obtained.  B-  THE AGENCY FOR  ��s  It is reported that the C. P. R.  is to expend $50,000 this coming  summer at Calgary for a new  station and general offices, and  $10,000 at Medicine Hat for a new  station building.  It is believed that the recent  reduction of ore hauling rates by  the C. P. R. will result approximately in a saving to the mining  industry of the Boundary of $75,-  000 annually.

March I.���"We are working* on plans for an eight furnace addition to the Granby smelter at Grand  Forks, B. C, which would increase its  capacity from 2100 tons to 4800 tons a  day," said Jay P. Graves, general  manager of the Granby Consolidated  company, yesterday.  "H. N. Galer, assistant manager,  has completed the survey and is working on the plans. I shall submit the  plans to the directors of the Granby  company on my return trip, and they  will decide on carrying them out. It  was at first planned to make the addition a six furnace plant, duplicating  the present smelter, but we are now  figuring on an increase of 33 1-3 per  cent over that plan."  must be suppressed, and the board of  licenss commissioners last year made a  start in that direction. The good  work "must be kept up. Any town allowing its'decent business men to be  boycotted and crushed by a half dozen  vicious liquor dealers will soon become  a byeword of reproach."

Nelson and Greenwood  Editor Times: Dear sir���It would  perhaps not be out of place for the citizens of Greenwood to have an opportunity of reading the comments of a  citizen of Nelson on a live question which is apparently causing some  trouble in that city. It seems to the  writer that there is something in common between the condition of affair*  in both cities.  If you will kindly publish the enclosed clipping from the Nelson Tribune of the 27th u'.t., you will confer a  favor on,       ���   Yours truly,  A Citizen.  "Is Nelson to be ruled by two  hotel-  "\v hole-  keeper s" oni Ver"noia streeit and  gale liquor dealer who has tried to use  the board of license commissioners as  a bad-debt collecting agency ?   These  two hotelkeepers have  made between  $30,000 and S40,000 in four years selling  liquor to workingmen, and since they  have acquired their thousands have become arrogant and swelled up.    One of  them wanted to be  made alderman at  the last election; the other  wanted  to  be made mayor.    Because their  wants  were over looked, they did, as they had  done on former occasions, 'knifed' the  man they professed   to  be supporting.  The wholesale liquor  dealer is not satisfied with carrying  on   business as a  wholesaler,  but he  must have   retail  liquor  places  as well.     He  also   has  polLical   aspirations,    and    imagines  they  can   be realized  if only  he can  control  the  saloons  iu   Nelson.    The  board of license commissioners at its  last sitting refused to renew two saloon  licenses, and two members of the board  have been subjected  to no end of personal abuse by the two political hotel-  keepers and their frieurls.   The action  of the board  is in the right direction  and in the public interest and it will  stand,  notwithstanding   the fact   that  the new license board, mere creatures  of the two Vernon  street hotelkeepers,  say they will ignore  the action of last  year's board.    Since Nelson's incorporation, the hotelkeepers  and saloonmen  ���who  are  respectable  and fair-dealing  business men have endeavored to keep  the   wide-open    disreputable   element  within   bounds,   knowing  that if the  business of liquor selling was not conducted  within   reasonable  limits, the  time would surely come when the religious eastern Canadian element would  get  control  of  the  municipal   offices,  and the Stown would then  be changed  from a most liberal one to a paradise  for    narrow-minded    and    intollerent  bigots.

His preliminary hearing was  fixed for Wednesday afternoon  before Police Magistrate Cochrane. At the appointed hour  Provincial Constable Dinsmore  announced that the crown had no  evidence against the accused who  had been out on bail. E. Miller,  counsel for the defense, then  moved for the discharge of Storey.  The application was granted.  Storey subsequently paid various  bills before taking the train for  the south. On his behalf it may  be stated that he gave the C.P.R.  the usual notice before leaving  its- service- and- th at -he* g*aAre instructions as to the disposal of  his unpaid salary.���-Grand' Forks  Gazette.

Here it is :  Seven years ago last June the Conservative government was in  power. Today the Liberals are in power and this is part of their record  for the seven years past:  Seven years ago our revenue was $36,618,591; today it is $63,739,271,  or nearly twice as much.  Seven years ago we had a deficit of $330,000; this year we had a  surplus of over 513,000,000, or a betterment of a little over 813,000,000.  Seven years ago our foreign trade was $239,000,000; today it is  $459,000,000", or about twice as much.  Seven years ago the number of homesteads entered during the year  was 1,857; this year it was 31,343, or a little over 17 times as many.  Seven years ago our cattle trade amounted tc $104,451; this year it  was $11,342,634, or say eleven times as much.  Seven years ago we exported in oats $273,861; this year we exported  $2,583,171, or over nine times as much.  Seven years ago we exported in flour $718,433; this year we exported  $4,699,142, or say six times as much.  Seven years ago our Territorial grant was $267,000; this year it was  $957,000, oi say four times as much.  Seven years ago our.bank note circulation was $31,456,297; this year  it was $60,414,740, or say $2 to $1.  Seven years ago we exported bacon to the value of $3,802,135; this  year we exported $15,455,174, or about four times as much.  Seven years ago we exported in butter $4,000,000; this year we  exported $7,000,000, or say twice as much.  Seven years ago we exported in agricultural implements $593,464,  this year we exported $2,284,904, or say four times as much.  Seven years rgo our min-eral export was $4,419,170; this year it was  $31,064,861, or say seven limes as much.  Seven years ago it took the bonding of three quarter-sections of this  land to buy a bushel of seed grain from the government. This year lots  of this same land sold for one and two thousand dollars.  And last, but not least, seven years ago tons of Tory literature were  strewed   over   the width   and  breadth  of  this land abusing Mr. Israel  5   Tarte in every way imaginable.

And that seems to be  about the matter with Russia. "  Which shows that Editor Carley  is good in an emergency case.  Mayor Rumberger of Phoenix,  is working the King claim in  Summit camp. Three men are  working the Rathmullen in the  same camp. The Granby smelter  is treating the ore from the  Jumbo, Rossland. Before many  moons Dr. Averill expects to ship  ore from the Minnie claim in  Summit camp.  At the annual meeting of the  Le Roi, Rossland, held in London  last week, it was stated that the  profits for the month of January  of the present year were 350,000,  and that the profits for the year  ending December 31st were  8400,000.  The Athelstan, in Wellington  camp, along with the Jack Pot,  au adjoining claim, is to be incorporated, it is reported, and in  the meantime shipments of ore  will be discontinued.  Mr. L. P. Duff, of the law firm  of Bod well & Duff, Victoria, has  been appointed to a seat on the  Supreme bench, made vacant by  the retirement of Justice Walkern.  The net returns from 24 tons of  ore from the Mountain Con. after  deducting freight and treatment  charges, amounted to 82,800.  J. W. Power, who has just completed a miuing timber contract  for the Star, has beeu given another for the Ivanhoe.  The seven hundred bars of bullion sunk on a car in Sloean lake  some time since have nearly all  been recovered by a diver.  Efforts  are  being made to es  tablish  a telephone line between  Armstrong and Kelowna.  Citizens of Irish decent in Nelson have organized a St. Patrick's  society.  Points of Difference-  After reading the following  comparison of the Jap and Russ  you can guess again about the  probable outcome of the passage  at arms between them:  The Japs have a little country  and are land hungry.  The Russians have the greater  part of all Europe and Asia and  are land surfeited.  The Japs are concentrated.  The Russians are spread out.  The Jap is an islander and seafaring, a naval as well as a land-  fighter.  The Russ is a landlubber, but a  plodding fighter.  The Jap is fighting in his own  back yard.  The Russ is fighting five thousand miles from home.  The Jap is a teetotaller.  The Russ is a hard drinker.  yy,The Jap has short legs.  The Russ has long ones.  The Jap has the sympathy of  the Englishman, of the Yankee,  of most of civilzatiou.  The Russ has few friends outside of his country, has incurred  the just hatred of the world-wide  Jew.

The Best Remedy for Croup  This is the season when the woman  who knows the best remedy for croup is  in demand in every neighborhood.  One of the most terrible things in the  world is to be awakened in the middle  of the night of the night by a whoop  from one of the children. The croup  remedies are almost as sure to be lout  in case of croup, as a revolver is sure to  be lost in case of burglars. There used  to be an old fashioned remedy for  croup, known as hive syrup, but some  modern mothers say that Chamberlain's Cough Remedy is better, and  does not cost so much. It causes the  patient to "throw up the plegm"  quicker, and gives relief  in        a shorter time.       Give  this remedy as soon as the croupy  cough appears and it will prevent the  attack. It never fails and is pleasant  and safe to take. For sale by J. 1��.  White Greenwood and A. F. Thomas  Midway.

Wood has been confined to his house this week from  trouble with his eyes, the result of a  cold and a touch of la grippe.

The party who found a lady's fur  collar about January 1st, and advertised it in the Times at the time, will  confer a favor by leaving the same at  this oflice, as the article in question  has been called for.  Among the many donations to the  Phonix General hospital was one of  40 tons of coal from the International  Coal company, of Coleman, Alta. Mr.  A. C. Flumerfelt is president of this  company, which is almost wholly made  up of Boundary people.  Robt. Pctrie was up from the Forks  yesterday. Syd. Coulton and G. W.  Ragland, Phoenix; Dan. Nichol, Grand  Forks: Alan F. Eddy, Rock Creek; F.  F. Ketchum, Beaverdell, were among  the arrivals registered at the Windsor  this week.  The Spokesman-Review of March 3,  contained the following: S. F. Parrish j  manager of the Le Roi mine of Rossland, B. C, is seriously ill at the  Spokane hotel. He was operated upon  for a growth in the nose, and nose  ' bleed set in that lasted for two days.  Mr. Parrish is better.  A school of matrimony, at which  young men and women desiring to j  enter the wedded state are expected to  take a course of instruction and receive  a diploma, is proposed in a bill introduced in the Iowa Legislature by  Representative Daniel, a physician.  "Why Smith Left Home" drew a  good audience at the Auditorium Monday night. It was an entertaining  presentation of situations confronting  more people than the public knows of  ���true to life to many-- and many more ;  will realize it sooner or later. ;  The Salvation Army concert band  which came in last Friday, entertained  attendants at some of the churches in  the city Sunday, and in the evening at  Eagles' hall. The band was making  a tour of the Boundary, and came from  Spokane.  Grand Forks has a physical culture  society, presided over by Mr. and Mrs.  Warrington.  The C. P. R.'s January report discloses a net decrease of income of over  ���half a million.  The Greenwood Lo'ige A. F. & A.  M. are holding another of their enjoyable dances on Easter Monday.  J. Parker, inspector of weights and  measures for the interior, was on his  annual tour in this district last week  and visited Greenwood Wednesday.  A. Waddell, who went out last fall,  returned to the city this week, from  Spokane. Mr. "Waddell has a ranch  up the main Kettle river, as well as  interests in many promising mining  claims.  Mrs. Ed. Dill who has lately returned from California, stopped over in  Nelson for a few weeks to visit friends.  Mrs. Dill joined her husband here on  Monday last, who is manager of the  gent's furnishings department of the  Russell-Lavv-Caitlfield Co.  Owing to the pronounced success of  the Hendryx syanide process of treating the Mountain Lion ore, an enthusiastic citizen of Republic tells a Spokane reporter that there will be an influx of a thousand or more people into  that town in Hie next month, as it was  the one thing wanted there to create  new life.  A. W. Young, formerly of the Armstrong but latterly clerk at; the Windsor hotel, left today for an extended  visit to his Old Country home in  Gloucestershire, England. He expects  to be absent for six months or more.  "Red" desires to. keep in touch with  Greenwood and Boundary matters in  general, so he ordered the Timks sent  to his address abroad in the meantime.  A miner named A. Godette was injured at the Mother Lode mine Monday while operating a drill, it having  become in some manner deranged, and  hammered the man instead of the  rock, before he could succeed in shutting off the compressed air power. He  was taken to the Greenwood hospital  where at last accounts he was recovering rapidly, his injury not having  been of a very serious nature.  Greenwood was a veritable "closed  town" Sunday, the 17 hotels closing at  11 o'clock Saturday night and not  opening their bars till Monday morning. All trade inacliiiies have been  removed from the bars It appears to  be the intention of the hotel men to  give the city the full benefit of a strict  observance of the Sunday closing statutory regulations, aud incidentally retire some of their number from the  field of competition, by weeding out  the weaker ones.  A large rock crashed through the big  plate glass window of Karatofsky's  cigar stand and pool rooms, at the corner, of Knob Hill avenue and First  street, Phoenix, early Monday morning. It dodged around among the  show cases and landed in the pool  roomo. Other than breaking the  "largest plate-glass window in the  Boundary," no other damage was  done. Whether the rock came down  the hill from the glory hole of the Old  Ironsides, or some irate Jap, who had  been told that 'Tofsky was formerly in  the Russian army, hurled the missile,  is the question that worries him.  The contract work of sinking 100  feet on the Don Pedro is progressing  satisfactorily and the grade of the ore  encountered so far is more than holding to the average of values found  nearer the surface. Sixty feet of the  100 are already completed, and it is  thought the remaining 40 feet will be  finished inside of 60 days.  Chesaw Electric Road Plans.
