No. 30  THE EMMA  LOOKING UP  Prospect   Work   on  New  Tunnel Progressing.  HMD 10 BE  The Recent Strike is in a New Tunnel  Started Near Old Workings.  J. J. Campbell, of the Hall mines  smelter, being seen in regard to the  recent strike on the Emma mine in  the Summit camp, said the strike is in  a new tunnel recently started near the  old workings. The tunnel was first  driven through 30 feet of country rock,  and then about 30 feet of magnetite ore  ���was met. A shoot of high grade copper  ore was next encountered, which is  several feet in width and has been  driven on for 30' feet. No assays of  the ore have, yet been made, but the  strike is thdug*ht to be of considerable  importance by the management of the  mine. - A skip is being rigged up so  that the pre from the new find can be  dumped from the skip into the cars.  To Shorten Distance.  Steps have been taken for the con  struction of a foot bridge across the  Kettle river at Carson where the old  wagon bridge used to stand before it  was washed out by high water two  years ago. says the Grand Forks Sun.  At the present time passengers leaving  Carson for the Great Northern station  have to go up to Danville, on the north  side of the river, and then follow the  Hot Air track dowii'the south side to the  station, making in all about two miles.  The foot bridge. will shorten the distance to three-quarters of a mile.  St. Jude's, Holy Week and Easter-  Monday, 28th, S p. m.���Evensong and  Reading.

FI 1181 Of IMS  Convention  Continues  Two  Days-  Proceedings Animated.  ':*  i   RENDEL    & CO.  The Interior Liberal Council convened in Rossland on Wedn-.-sday of this  week and continued in session two days.  The proceedings were animated, the  debates tersefand to the 'point. From  the calibre of the men in attendance on  the convention and the logical character  of the discussions it was easy to understand that the council is rapidly growing in influence throughout the country  and that it has a long and useful career  ahead of it on these lines.  The full list of accredited delegates  at the opening session was as follows:  Keremeos���John Black.  Kaslo���John Keen, A W.Goodenough  and E. H. Latham.  Cranbrook���F. E. Simpson, J. H.  Huchcroft and R. E. Beattie.  Ymir���A. Bernard Buckworth, John  Stinson and M. Sergius Logan.  Greenwood���Duncan' Ross, K. M.  Stephens and Alexander Robinson.  Creston��� George" iW-.'Urquhart (proxy)  Trail���A. Dickson, B. Buckley and  A. J. Martin.  Nelson���William G. Gillette, Charles  F. McHardy and F. J. Deane.  Rossland���John H. Macdonald, Dr.  Kerr and Smith Curtis.  In opening, a committee on resolutions was appointed, including- Messrs.  Keen, Simpson, Kerr, Curtis, and  Dean.  J. A. McDonald, retiring president  addressed the convention anent the  work of the past year. He expressed  the opinion strongly that the ^council,  had performed a most usefril function  and that the welfare of the Liberal  party in the interior of British Columbia has been most materially promoted  as the result of its work. Mr. Macdon-  alds address was received with evidence's of marked approval,and the provincial Liberal leader was the recipient  of hearty expressions of esteem and  confidence from the assembled delegates.  The election of officers for the current  twelve months was then proceeded with  and resulted as follows:  Duncan Ross, Greenwood, president.  John Anthony Turner, Nelson, vice-  president.  F.E. Simpson, Cranbrook, .secretary-  treasurer.  COUNCIL.  Rossland���Dr. D. E. Kerr.  Cranbrook���J.H.Hntchcroft.  Ymir���Archibald Campbell,  Greenwood���R. B. Kerr.  Nelson���F. J. Deane.

Under the headitig of resolutions several matters were intro-'ueed. A suggestion that the convention coniine itself to provincial matters only was voted down on the start. A resolution  passed by the Rossland Liberal association recommending the establishment of a Federal department of mines  to be presided over by a member from  British Columbia was laid before tha  convention,and referred to a committee.  Another resolution dealing with the  movement for a protective tariff on  rough lumber and suggesting a means  whereby the protection could lie afforded Canadian producers without increasing the cost to consumers, was also introduced and referred to  a.   committee.  At the close of the afternoon sitting  the delegates were invited to be present  at the Si.Andrew's church concert in  the evening and to participate in a  banquet at the Hotel Allan.  THE   HENDRYX  SYSTEM.  Grand  Forks and Republic Citizens  Rejoice in Us Success.  All parties interested in mining* in  this part of the country are of course  interested in the various experimental  methods of treating the different kinds  and grades of ore found. Owners of  mining and other property in the Republic camp are just now largely  hinging their hopes on the final outcome of tests being made in that camp  under the direction of Dr. Hendryx,  who claims he has discovered a process  by which the immet.se bodies of ore in  Republic can be profitably treated.  The inventor claims that the results of  his experiments are eminently satisfactory. Last week a large party of  citizens went from Grand Forks to inspect the workings of Dr. Hendryx's  ne*-" system.  Death of Raymond Binmore.  Mrs. S. B. Yuill has received word of  the death of her brother-in-law, Raj'-  nioiid*- Binmore. Mr. Binmore was a  sou of the late Colonel Binmore of  Montreal, and was himself well known  in military circles, being* one of the  best rifle and pistol shots in Canada,*  and was twice ou the Bisley team, He  was a popular club man and all round  athlete, and a long article in the  Montreal .Star shows in what esteem  he was held. He was * married to the  youngest,daughter of Lionel Smith,  Esq., Montreal, who is Mrs. Yuill's  only sister.  Weeks���Castleman Nuptials.  Thursday, Match  24th,  at 11 o'clock  a.-m.y-at the* residence  of  the bride's  ���  ���      t     ��� *  parents at Boundary Falls, .Mr. J. G.  Weeks, of, Victoria, was united in  marriage with Miss Maud Castleman,  youngest daughter of Mr. and Mrs. A.  Castleman, Rev. Mr. Thompson of  Midway officiating. After the nuptial  ceremonies the bride and groom, accompanied b}' friends, partook of a  wedding dinner, and departed on the  afternoon train for Victoria, where  Mr. Weeks is engaged in ranching  near the city. The groom is a brother  of Mrs. N. H. Lamont and Mrs. J. J.  J^AiU^TJSiyi_oi*J:Ms_citY.__.Th.e Castle-  mans are pioneer people of the Boundary, having resided at Boundary Falls  about -.en years, and Mrs. Weeks is a  native daughter of British Columbia.  Rich Strike on Vancouver Island.  What is believed to be the richest  strike in high grade copper ore yet  made in Vancouver island is reported  from Oyster Harbor, just north of the  town of Ladysmith, within a pistol  shot of the Tye2 Copper company's  smelter. The lucky discoverer is  Robert Herd, a prospector. Samples  treated here give eighty dollars a ton  in copper, three dollars in gold-aiulone  dollar aud fifty cents in silver.  James Dunsmuir, owner of the Esquimau & Nanaimo railway, and Clermont Livingston, general manager of  the Tyee Copper company went up to  examine the property with a view to  purchase. The sale price mentioned  for the group of claims runs into the  hundreds of thousands. Specimens of  the cropping exhibited show a bcatiful  peacock copper stain and are mineralized very heavily. The news of the  strike has caused much excitement iu  Vancouver island mining circles.  The swing span on the New Westminster bridge over the Fraser has  been opened.  The Bank of British North America  has declared a dividend of thirty shillings a share.  Four hatcheries, each of large capacity, are tn be built t>y the Dominion  government on tlie Fraser river.  John Foster Fraser the Siberian traveler anil writer, says that Russia has,  fur the past live years, been preparing  f-.-r the p-e.-f.-nt struggle with Japan,  in vie'.'.' of Kiis.sia's great proportion  as compared with the Japanese empire  and her evident present lack of preparedness, the present situation may be  s.:id to emphasize the old saying that  great bodies move -slowly. The alert  little Jap will have her put out of act  ion before she gets in.  TOO LARGE  FOR TUNNELS  Manager J. B. Henderson  Has Troubles.  IfOlMEIfltl  But He Went East and Fixed Matters  ���Machinery Now on Road.  The last of the machinery for the  Canadian Timber & Sawmills, Ltd.,  which is erecting a sawmill at Trout  Lake city, has been started on its way  west. The delay. in receipt of this  last carload was caused by a peculiar  circumstance which does not often  arise in railroading. A part of the  machinery was second hand and consisted of a mill bought in the east.  Tlie machinery of the old mill was  loaddd on the cars and all came through  but one carload, which got as far as  Deluth, where it was held up. It consisted of a flywheel on a shaft, and this  piece of machinery stood over the car  17 feet and extended across the car for  14 feet.  The Soo line which was to take it  from Deluth and deliver it to the C. P.  R., declared that it could _ not be got  through the tunnels of its line.        .*  J. B. Henderson of Grand Forks,,  manager of the Canadian Timber &  Sawmills, sent $150 east to have the  flywheel taken from the shaft, but the  parties who loaded it evidently put  the money in their pockets and did  nothing.  In the meanwhile the construction of  the mill was delayed waiting for this  partiolBr piece of the plant. A couple  of weeks since Mr. Henderson made a  special trip to Deluth for the purpese  of taking the shaft out of the flywheel  and loading it so that the railroads  could handle it. This he has done, and  now the shaft and jthejffywheel^.are  somewhere on the C, P. R. between  here and Deluth.  Here and There.  Hon. J. H. Agnew, Provincial Treasurer in the Manitoba trovernnient was  returned by acclamation for Virden, no  other candidate being nominated.  The Pensylvania Railroad company  has awarded the contract for its four  East River tunnels to R. Pearson &  Son, Limited, of London, England.  The rush of United States immigrants  to Western Canada continues. The  other day there were 250 cars of settlers'  effects in the  C. P. R. yards at Portal,  Ni I).  An order in Council has been passed  placing petroleum oil on the free list  when imported by mining companies  for use iu the concentration of ores of  metal. This is a concession to the  Kootenay mining industry.  The west six hundred foot level in  the Josie mine near Rossland is producing remarkably rich ore. The usual  product of the camp is comparitively  low grade, but Josie's 600 stope is a  marked exception. The values are said  to be easily $100.  The preliminary investigation of the  case of Martin, the non-commissioned  officer accused of disposing of French  naval secrets to a Japanese naval attache, has created consternation in the  general naval staff. Martin's method  of obtaining the documents will be  ferrit- out and no one seems to know  where the blame will rest. The investigation has indicated that the general  instructions for war time are among  the documents procured by the accused  and sold to Japan. BOUNDARY   CHtiEK   TIMES.

McGuire, lecturing*.at the  Royal United Service Institution  in London, on the Pacific ocean  from a strategic point of view,  said the importance of gaining- a  position on the Pacific had been  recognized for many ages. The  Americans were singularly unfortunate in the matter of harbors  on the Pacific coast, while the  whole of British Columbia was  absolutely full of good harbors.  If there was a flaw in our strategic position it was that we had  no harbor from Cape Horn to  British Columbia. It was possible for Great Bitain to land  troops in China by-the C. P. R. in  half the time it could be done via  the Suez or the Cape. If British  Columbia had been given to the  United States we would have had  no base whence to dominate the  Northern Pacific and no terminus  for a railway to counteract the  Siberian line.  He spoke of the indifference to  Japan to sea power until the bombardment of her ports in 1864.  He said that Steward's remark in  1863, that "The Pacific ocean, its  coasts and its islands are destined  to be the great theatre in the  world's affairs." and Napoleon's  theory that the world's future  would be between America and  Asia, had been verified.  Lord Roberts spoke of the Siberian railway, 6,000 miles long, in  direct communication with St. Petersburg and the Pacific. France,  Germany, Britain and Australia  were grouped -in the same region.  Australia, one hundred years ago,  was also waste. Now it is the  most flourishing continent in  Eastern waters.  In British Columbia, Alaska  and California the same extraordinary development had been  witnessed, showing the great importance of the Pacific coast,  which was connected by nine railway lines with the Atlantic and  a tenth was under consideration.  Important as these railways are  strategically, they will be surpassed by the Panama canal.  The morning Post, referring to  the lecture says; "If Canada,  New Zealand and Australia cultivate naval power, appreciating  the importance of the concentration of force in one centre of gravity, they will greatly prolong  the vast possibilities of joint action of Britain and the United  States." The Post agrees with  Lord Roberts that the intern ation.  al centre of gravity has shifted to  the Pacific.  The Staff of Life Plentiful.  Moritz Thompson, president of  the   Centennial  Mill   Company,  which operates four mills in Spokane, Sprague, * Ritzville, Paha,  and Seattle in Washington, and  in Waco, Oregon, visited the mill  in Spokane Saturday, He says  consignments of flour for Port  Arthur, Chefoo and other north-  thern China points have been cancelled with his' company in the  past two weeks to the amount of  432,000 .sacks. ���:-���-���  He says; "We had contracts for  thousands of-sacks of flour for  the orient, but the war,has stopped all the-export trade and we are  left with nearly, every warehouse  full and no place to ship it.     We'  ^.Sa��sKfi^.^*  Just  Arrive  A fine line of new  and  up-to-date  Chamber  AND  Dinner  Sets  These goods will be sold  very cheap for the next  15 days to make room  for repairs on the building* and a big stock of  goods now on the way.

"The last six months the Japs  have imported more flour than in  the two previous years. I guess  they were getting ready for the  fray, because they certainly have  every storehouse full. Siberia  and northern China are not so fortunate and the trade is blocked  by the war now."  "The Chinese trade will commence after July 1, but until that  time there will probably not be*  much doing."  Notice.  For Sale or to Rent on easy terms,  one five roomed cottage in Anaconda.

Greeu has been  pleased to notify all preemptors of  Crown lands that if overdue balances of purchase mone}* are not  paid on or before the 15th day of  April next, the records or agreements will be cancelled. As the  ���notice has been promulgated by a  tory member in a tory government, it occasions no surprise to  those who have studied the records  of the party'in the past. The;  tory "party is the party of the  privileged few. So long as those  few are granted special favor  they have no sympathy for the  masses. The tory principle of  taxation was applied in recent  amendments to the assessment  act and the Chief Commissioner's  order only carries out the policy  laid down in that harsh and unjust measure.  Iiiotheri.J>rpv.Ul^s*-iUl^Jfl,-Q-ther  countries where immigration is  encouraged, the man who is  honestly endeavoring to make a  home for himself is offered every  encouragement. Such a policy  would help British Columbia, but  with a tory government in power  the taxes of the settlers arc  doubled and their property confiscated unless a short and peremptory notice is obeyed.  The notice is as cruel as it is  uncalled for but the people must  necessarily expect that with a  simon pure Conservative administration like that of Mr. McBride  the common people, to use a vulgarism, will always get il in the  neck.  A NATIONAL  SUBJECT.  Elsewhere we publish a very  fair criticism of the recent amendments to the Grand Trunk Pacific  agreement. The article should  be carefully read by those who  take an interest in this great national undertaking. It will be  found that the bowlings of the  Conservative press are really because no serious objection can be  taken to the modified agreement.  The Grand Trunk Pacific scheme  is sure to receive the endorsation  of the great majority of the  people of Canada, aud if there  were nothing else to be said in  favor of the Laurier government  it 'would be sufficient to return  them with a bigger majority than  ever.  It is difficult to say positively  whether the great steel magnate,  Anrew Carnegie, has a conscience  or not. A man who . gained his  immense wealth by extorting from  the public treasury of the United  States S600 a ton for armour plate,  when he was selling the same  product to other governments for  so many years as Mr. Caruagie  has, for S150, may be expected, to  haA*e a seared conscience, if any  at all. This money was taken  from the pockets of the taxpayer,  S400 in excess of a just figure.  When millions of tons of armour  plate so furnished are taken into  consideration, it is readily seen  where Mr.Carnagie got the wealth  he would now devote to an effort  to carry his name with honor  down the pages of history. He  has only recently given S5,000,000  of his illgotten gains to Philadelphia, which is onh*" a trifle of his  annual profits from government  protected enterprises he is prominent in by means of his highwa}-  practices on the people, of the  United States.  In New York state the religious  denominations seem to have  awakened to a species mormonism  everywhere practical, which in  the minds of many is more demoralizing" and destructive than  the      Utah      type. Twelve  denominations recently met in  convention to consider the divorce  evil. At this gathering the following resolution was offered by  BjshopjGreeii.and���pa..ssexl:.^y*.Eer.  solved, that in recognition of the  amity which should exist between  Christian churches, it is desired  and would tend to increase the  spirit of Christian unity to advise  and if ecclesiastical authority  will allow, to enjoin its ministers  to refuse to unite in marriage any  person or persons whose marriage  such ministers have good reason  to believe is forbidden by the laws  of the church in which either  party seeking to be married holds  a membership."  only the shattered remnants of a  great republic would have been  left.  The London Spectator points  out that the real prize in the victory between the contesting powers of Russia and Japan is China.  Not that either nations would annex China, but in the event of a  decisive victory, the nation who  secured it, would, owing to the  prestige attained, command so  much influence at Pekiu, that it  would be the paramount power  in the far east.  If the following, contributed to  the Spokesman-Review b}*- a resident of Hope, Idaho, be correct,  in makes our cousins across the  border appear as a very' ungrateful class of people. The writer  says:  "At the time when thiscountry  was in its death struggle, the  statesmanship of Seward gave to  this country the abiding friendship of Russia. England and  Prance were against us. Hail the  enmity of  either  become  active,  At that critical moment, when  England's navy threatened to go  to the assistance of the confederacy, the czar sent his fleet into  the harbor of of New York, and  from there to the Potomac with  sea-ed orders to open fire on the  works of the confederacy should  a single English or French gun  be unlimbered in the cause of the  rebellion.  At this time, then, there should  be no misunderstanding as to  with which combatant the sympathy of the American people lies.

BOUNDARY   CREEK   TIMES  J  A  Practical   Criticism  of  Current Thoeries  . Rev.W.W. Baer Gives an Entertaining  Lecture in' Greenwood Methodist  '-���--:. Churcn.  ' On Tuesday evening last the Rev.  T Mr. Baer, of Nelson, gave a lecture in  the Methodist church here on "Economic Possibilities Other Than Socialism." The church was comfortably  filled and the reverend gentleman held  the attention of'his audience for about  an hour and a half, while he discussed  economic theories and conditions.  The lecturer said at the outset that  the present economic system was not  working   satisfactorily.     During  the  ..last three or four years out of 15,000,000  '. laborers, i. e. men who work with their  -hands \yhen they do work, it.was estimated that 7,000,000 of these were constantly on strike, .4,000,000 more of the  - remainder were in a state of chronic  unrest and discontent.     This was a  ' --very serious curtailment of the produc-  .'tive power of these men, and showed  'that something was out of joint.  During the last 30 or 40 years three  distinct theories had been* advanced as  the cause of our economic ills and bad  .condition in which a great many found  themselves.  The introduction of machinery was  at one time assailed as the cause of all  the ills that befell the workingman.  .Reasons: that were seemingly plausible  were advanced to show that machinery  j/meant the complete undoing and deg-  _red ation, /of _thje^jiro rker...... Ex perience  has .shown?-that thisV reasoning   was  /fallacious.   ''-'*;  *'    '*���.���'������������''-     *' -  . ;Then the com'petative system was  denounced as the brie great evil which  was ,producing all..kinds of wrongs.  The last three or four years the "trust"  has been pointed out as the gieat  menace to civilization and that it has  reduced' the :masses tb; a condition of  wage slavery,  .In the opinion'of the speaker none of  these arguments were sound, at least  to anything like the extent  claimed.  HH6\then "devoted-some' time to Social-  Uitil. Scarcely any two of its adherents  had the' same idea as to vyhat Socialism  Was. It was one of those happy-go-  things in which every man had an  idea and a definition of his* own  about it. The Socialist Labor party of  the United States changed its platform  nearly every year. There seemed to  be no finality, no permanency about it.  The speaker then gave definitions of  Socialism as given by some of the  leading Socialists, 'and gave a definition of his.owtf: "Socialism'is an economic theory which is intended to insure  to Ihe workers the full product of their  toil, and to develop in them a class-  conscious spirit to the end that they  mSy seize the reins of government and  put an end to the present capitalistic  system."  What was the full product of a man's  toil? Was it all he produced? The  'speaker said this proposition would not  ���Work out. For instance, twenty men  were set to work to exploit a mineral  At The Present Time TS ��^"  there  is -no  other   which   will  bring* in such   returns as this.  The price of coal, has gone up all over the world, the consumption is enormous, to buv in anv working company now costs a small fortune. THE INTERNATIONAL COAL AND COKE CO., is already a shipper and backed  by some of the. strongest men. in the country, with a conservative estimate of something like Fifty' Million of  tons of Coal in sight, is the one t6 put your money in. Shares which can now be bought at a nominal sum will  reach big figures before long. :  I have still a few shares left and when they are gone it will be too late for the small investor to get in, if you want something which will net you a good income, don't hesitate but buy at once. First come, first served. When you see the' price reach  three figures you wil1. then realize that you have indeed missed a chance of a life time.

These men  worked faithfully and according to the  best practice which obtains in searching after bodies of ore and exploiting  property, for six months,? yet found  nothing. Therefore they had produced  nothing. Were these men who worked  so long and faithfully on this mountain side not to be paid at all? If so,  it would discourage all enterprise in a  district like this. If they were to be  paid, where was the pay to come from?  If out of the general fund, then it was  evident that it woulrt prevent others  who had produced something from receiving the full product of their toil.  A person should receive a fair return  for his work, but the socialist thoery  was impossible.  The speaker also gave other instances and advanced reasons apparently  uncontrovertible, which demonstrated  the fact that socialism is inconsistent,  unpractical and impossible.  As to economic possibilities other  than socialism the speaker said he believed in nationalizing the land and all  public utilities, such as railroads, telegraphs, etc. If this: were, done and  the present economic system as amend-.  ed in that way, were administered in a  spirit of justice and fairness it would  result in a great improvement.  Rev. Mr. Knox, who presided, then  said any one had the privilege of asking the lecturer any questions on the  subject. Questions were asked by Mr.  Lightbody, Mr. Embree, Mr. Graham,  and Mr. McKay. These were answered  to the satisfaction of the audience by  Mr. Baer.  _..

Then  the premier, Sir Wilfrid Laurier,  -was far from well, now some who  -were then getting ready to divide  his raiment are looking more interesting to undertakers. He recently stated his intention to stay  *in the ring until knocked out by  the electors, and as nobody in  ���sight appears nearly so popular  it seems likely that he will tread  the arena for some little time to  come.  There will be a', long" party  struggle over the proposed/amendments to the Grand Trunk Pacific company's contract of last session for building the National  Transcontinental, writes a correspondent of the Boston Transcript.  The amendments can not alarm  the Liberals, . since they merely  correct points in the contract that  were unreasonably in favor of the  government.  Formerl}** the company was required to complete the prairie  section of 1000 miles west of  "Winnipeg in five years from- December 1, 1903. There was no  need for such haste. The time  has been extended to December 1,  1911.  To Leave Security.  Formerly the company was re  quired to leave$5,000,000 security  in the hands of the government  until the road was completed from  ocean to ocean. Yet the government was not bound to any stated  time for completing the divisions  which the company was not to  build. B}** the amendment the  company can get back its security  deposit as soon as it does its share  of the work and supplies rolling  stock to operate the government  divisions when completed.  Formerly there was no provision for enabling the company  to operate and profit by the government built sections as fast as  completed. This has been made  fight, and it constitutes a* slight,  concession to the company. '  . Formerly the government undertook to guarantee the company's bonds on the Rocky mountain section of 500 miles to the  tune of not more than $30,000 per  mile. That was estimated tc be  more than 75 per cent of the  cost of construction. Now the  government undertakes to guarantee 75 per cent of the cost, flThe  guarantee is merely an endorsement, it can cost Canada nothing,  its increase will slightly improve  the company's money raising  power.  Formerly the government could  foreclose on the whole property  of the company in case the company   should   default  for   three  years in payment of interest on  bonds guaranteed by the government. The period has been  lengthened to five years.  No Absolute Foreclosure.  Formerly a foreclosure by government would have been absolute. It is now provided that such  foreclosure shall place the property in the hands of a receiver  who shall pay the government  claims off gradually out of the  excess of receipts above operating  expenses. This means that the  company shall not lose the prairie  and the Rocky mountain sections  if the whole road, for.some years  after its opening, be found so expensive in operation that the  company must default in. consequence of undertaking to run. it.  It means that the risks of operations will be thrown on Canada.  '.That looks h'ke a big concession  to the company. Well, the company needed it. The government  drove a shylock bargain last year,  in providing that the company  should lose its whole investment  if the enterprise proved commercially premature. In- case the  northwest fills up as fast as expected, and in case the line from  Winnipeg to Moncton. - be laid  with easy grades, and in case it  prove atti active to freight and  colonization, there will be no  trouble.

Formerly the Grand Trunk  company was required to lock up  for 50 years the S25,000,000 of  common stock which it was required to take in the Grand  Trunk Pacific company. Now  tlie Grand Trunk can use a little  less than half that stock for  money raising* purposes. It must  retain a controlling* interest in  the Grand Trunk Pacific company. That seems reasonable  bonus to the' going* concern. Its  directors appeared, by the first  agreement, to have been so hypnotized by Sir Wilfrid that they  went in on purely philanthropic  motives.  Formerly there was no distinct  stipulation that the g-overnment,  if it should take possession and  operation of the Winnipeg*-Mouc-  ton division after expiry of the  company's lease of 50 years,  should give the Grand Trunk  running* powers over that road,  and should buy out, at a fair  valuation, any branches the  Grand Trunk might have been  authorized to build in connection  with their 50 years' operation  thereof. This has been set right  by the amendments. They require of the government nothing  that would not have to be done,  through consideration of fair  play, in the contingency contemplated.  Substantially Unchanged.  Substantially the scheme is unchanged. It relieves the company  of some apparent risks that never  were   real   ones, since  it  would  never have been morally possible  for the Dominion to confiscate  the company's investment in case  of its default in a contract that  was driven too hard by the premier last year. The amended contract facilitates the raising of  funds for the enterprise. It secures the benefits of private superintendence of construction and  of private operation. The ultimate risks are put where they  should be, on the country that  needs the road, not so much for  commercial as for, political or  national reasons.  As the Grand Trunk shareholders have accepted the proposition  the government will not have a  bargain so capable of being boosted on the stump as they had last  fall, but it can scarcely fail to go  through parliament, especially as  the shareholder will, apparently,  authorize the putting* up of $5,-  000,000 security by their acceptance of the agreement. Government supporters are not likely to  go back on an arrangement that  will secure to them the important  backing  of  the  existing Grand  Trunk company at the imminent  general elections. They have  been iu lugubrious condition since  that boom seemed likefy to be  missed. With the Canadian Pacific Railway company and its  thousands of employes, and its  great influence in localities supposedly hostile, with the Canadian Northern company displeased the ministerialists were beginning to fear ..that there cake  would be dough. They need the  Grand Trunk in their electioneering, and, if Sir Wilfrid has secured it firmly this time his supporters will once more rise up and call  him blessed.  *<*-*^<K*��***X-,*~X^  DEALERS IN  I LINOLEUMS, ETC.  5*     COPPER-STREET,  **���  ':*>.>c��><��x��>^��x..X"X����x����x.��><*'*C">.>.:.-:';!j.>.>��X"><��XK'��x��  GREEKWOOTl.  ���.���*���.������?���">������."���>���;'  �����-ft9*������***��������������# ����*��-����*#tttf#��$^  P.

N.  special car, the first of that line to be  seen in the city set on a hill.  Rev. Thos. Green of Phoenix, the  shepherd of the Methodist flock, is going to start the erection of a house of  worship in that city, which he hopes to  complete in a couple of months.  J. A.

Alderman McLellan of GrandForks,  has resigned. The struggle down  there between the "closed town" and  "open town" contestants got too warm  for his liking.  Prospect work on the Helen mine, in  Greenwood camp, is still going on.  Although an old property it has not  until recently been worked for a number of Years.

James Addison of Grand Forks, who  has been at Calgary the last four  months, returned to the Boundary this  week, to visit his family and incidentally improve his health by the enjoyment of a few weeks of home comforts.  During his absence he was engaged in  the erection of a large brick block in  Calgary, for an eastern syndicate.  C. A. Desbrisay of the V , V. &. E.,  is still floating around in the Boundary,  While his presence inspires hope,  many now insist on being shown more  substantial evidence that the Phoenix  branch wilt be built this summer, before they bank much on it.

The preemptor in British Columbia  is entitled to sympathy but fori unately  the confiscation of his title does not  destroy his franchise. The best safeguard against such orders and the general application of the principle involved therein is to secure a government more in sympathy with a class  who contributes largely to the growth  and development of any country. In  marked contrast to the policy persued  in this province is the policy of the  Liberal government in the Northwest  where settlers are offered every reasonable encouragement. This has led to  rapid settlement aud prosperous communities.  The city council met on Monday  evening   with   Mayor  Naden  in   the  chair and Aid. Caulfield, McKenzie,  Bunting and Ross present. This was  Aid. McKenzie's first appearance since  his accident and he was warmly congratulated on his rapid recovery.  Routine bjsiness occupied the attention  of the council. P. W. George & Co.  complained of the accumulation of  ashes from the furnace in the Wallace-  Miller block and the letter was referred  to the fire chief. Aid. Caulfield gave  notice of a bylaw amending the liquor  license bylaw and the council adjourned.  What might have been a serious fire  occurred at the residence of H. Walker  Harris on Kimberley Ave. on Sunday  afternoon.-Mr.-and-Mrs-Harris were"  out for a walk and left a fire in the  heater in the front room. Upon returning they found the rooni in flames.  The heater evidently ignited an article  of furniture and the blaze caught the  piano. Mr. Harris hastened to the city  hall and the fireman turned out promptly. The fire was confined to the one  room. The piano is completely ruined  and other articles of furniture badly  damaged. The loss is about $700, partially covered bv insurance.
