 0  Vol. 7.  GREENWOOD, B. C. FRIDAY   JULY 24.  1903..  No. 48  THE WIND  SHE BLEW  Wednesday's    Storm  Worst in Years.  the  Trees   Upturned,   Windows Broken.  Smoke Stack Blown Oyer, Etc.  An extremely violent wind storm was  experienced in the Boundary Creek district last Wednesday afternoon. Considerable damage was done to property  and there were several narrow escapes  from serious injury to persons who  were travelling along roads, passing  through growing timber. About three  o'clock the sky became overcast with  heavy clouds and the rising wind  sweeping up the valley brought blinding clouds of thick dust. Rain quickly  followed, laying the dust, but meanwhile the rain had wrought havoc,  tearing down trees along the comparatively narrow path of the storm, blocking roads and doing damage to buildings and other property.  The greatest damage done appears  to have been done at the Greenwood  smelter and at the Russell, Law, Caulfield company's fine store building on  Copper street, Greenwood, respectively  At the smelter the big steel-plate  smoke staci", 90 feet'high:and twelve  tons 'in SveightV'was-toppled'pver, the  force of the wind being so great that  the wire cable stays gave way and the  tall column fell off its brick base and  lay across the Deadwood branch of  the C & W. railway until Master  Mechanic Irish and his gang of workmen cut it in two and thus cleared the  ttack. As arrangements for building  a brick stack to replace this one were  already in hand the damag-e done to  the top half of the steel stack will not  greatly matter, since the lower half  will be placed back in position to serve  its purpose until the new stack shall  have been completed and put in use.  There will be but little, if any, interruption to smelting operations during  the replacement, which will be the  work of only two two or three days.  - ���Atthe-Russell,-Law,-Caulfield company's store it appears as if the wind  forced in the sheet of plate glass about  6 feel wide by 13 feet 8 inches high, at  the south end of one of the large show  windows, and then blew out the two 9  feet by 13 feet 8 inch sheets and a  smaller one above them, the thick glass  falling on the sidewalk and shattering  into thousands of small pieces. Fortunately the local company is protected  from loss by insurance, but the New  York Plate Glass company will have to  replace the glass, which will involve  an expenditure of about $500.  The West Fork stage came to grief  during the storm. George McKenzie  was on his way from Boundary Falls,  and whilst driving through the timber  above the smaller townsite was knocked out of his rig by a falling tree,  which also frightened his team. McKenzie lay stunned on the road for a  while and his horses galloped on to  Greenwood, keeping ahead of the falling trees and steeri lg clear of all obstacles until they got into Greenwood  where they ran into a telephone pole  and wrecked the rig. McKenzie had a  narrow escape, for wlien he recovered  his senses he found that several trees  had fallen near where he lay.  From other parts of the district also  come reports of blocked roads and  minor damage. All communication by  telegraph and telephone with outside  points was cut off and the local telephone service was much deranged. On  the whole though, considering the  violence of the storm, the district escaped lightly.  More Crop News.  R. G. Sidley, J. P., was down from  Sidley last Sunday and Monday. He  confirms the reports published last  week of good crops in the Rock Creek  and Anarchist Mountain section. In  places the hay suffered during the  earlier part of the season for want of  rain, so these crops will be light, but  speaking generally the outlook is promising for an abundant harvest, oats  and barley especially looking well. On  Mr. Sidley's own farm, which is the  largest in the district, grain, hay and  root crops are all in splendid condition  so that a heavy yield is expected from  them.  J.W. McBride, of Bolster, Wash.,who  came in on Tuesday, has a similar  story to tell of the crops across the International Boundary line, about  Myers creek, Chesaw and Bolster.  Wild hay will be short this year, the  rapid and early melting of the snow  last spring having left the land without sufficient moisture until the late  rains came. This hay is already finding ready sale at $10 per ton, with a.  prospect of there being a larger demand than supply. All the cultivated  crops appear to be strong and healthy  and settlers throughout the district are  encouraged to look for a satisfactory  return from their fields.  Settlement has been steadily proceeding in that section until now it is  difficult to obtain a homestead with any  considerable area of plough-land.  Small areas with up to 40 or 50 acres  each suitable for cultivation, can still  be found but these, too, are generally  being bought up. '     ,  The Waterloo Mine.  Chas. H. Wolf, of Spokane, one of  the directors of the company owning  the,Waterloo mine at Camp McKinrey,  was in Greenwood at the beginning of  the week on his way to the mine.  From him it was ascertained that the  5 stamp "mill on the Waterloo is treating daily about 10 tons of ore averaging in value $30 per ton. This ore is  being taken from the mine workings in the ordinary course of  development work. It is intended to shortly enlarge the stamp  mill by the addition of five more  stamps. When this shall have been  done stopes will be opened and the output of the mine doubled.  The Waterloo shaft is now down  about 260 feet. Levels have been run  at 50, 150 and 250 ft. depth. A winze  was sunk 60 ft. below the 150 ft. level,  and a raise from* the 250 ft. made to  connect vyjththisj Another raise win  connect the 60 and ISO ft.  The  vein  opened up in these  shortly  levels.  workings varies in width up to about  eight feet, nearly all milling ore.  From two to four feet of the vein is a  pay streak running into high values,  and the remainder of the ore is described as of sufficient good quality to make  it practicable to treat it at a profit.  Mr. Wolf expects to return via Greenwood early next week.  TO BUILD  NEWSTACK  At the B. C. Copper Company's Smelter  Local People Secure Option on  M. & M.

Copper company are not at present disposed to talk for publication  about intended improvements and additions the company is planning to  make to its smelter at Greenwood it is  known that important betterments are  to be made. All the definite information obtainable just * now in this con  nection is that a substantial brick stack  is to be built, and that. preparation is  being made for other important additions to the plant and works.  The new stack is to be 120 feet in  height, or 30 feet higher than the steel  plate stack now in use; It .will be built  on the solid rock between the existing  stack and the "highline" or Deadwood  branch of the Columbia & Western  railway. In planning the works the  later erection of a brick stack to replace the temporary steel structure was  provided for, and this intention is now  to be carried out. - There: will not be  any interruptionof the Smelting operations, whilst the cohstructidn'-jwdrk is in  progress, and when the new stack shall  have been completed-connection with  the dust flue chamber will be made and  the steel stack be removed without  shutting down the works.  No contract has yet been made for  building the new stack but an order for  the 400,000 bricks required has been,  placed with Frank Coryell of Grand  Forks, who supplied most of the bricks  used in building the furnaces and the  big dust flue. The work of building  will be put in hand with as little delay  as possible, so that the stack may be  finished and the bricks well set before  the sharp frosts of the winter come ou.  An official denial has been given to  the statements recently sent out from  =Phoenix^to-the-effect-that^the-B.,C.,  Copper company had made arrangements with the Cascade Power company to utilize electric power for operating the Greenwood smelting works,  and that a survey had been made and  contract let for a pole line between  Phoenix and Anaconda. Whilst it is  probable that eventually electric power  will be substituted for steam power it  is entirely premature to state that any  definite arrangements have yet been  made in this direction. Even if it  should be decided to replace steam  power by electricity it is well known  to all who have an intelligent knowledge of the situation that it would  take months totobtain the motors and  other electric plant and to make the re  quisite preparations for such si change  of power, so that there is little probability of this being effected during the  current year.  Last week H. V. Fuller of Spokane  and Duncan Mcintosh and W. M. Law  of Greenwood, secured an option on 10  claims originally owned by the Boundary Creek M. & M. Co., and the Gold  Bug owned by D. A. Holbrook. Messrs  Mcintosh and Law were in the syndicate who successfully floated the Providence and they have already secured  more than a sufficient number of local  men to join them in floating the new  venture. It is expected that a little  later on a company will be incorporated  to take over the option and develop the  properties. The claims were among  the first to bo developed in the district.  The B.-C. M. & M. Co. wis inco rpor-  ated in 1896 and considerable development work was done until in later years  the company got into financial difficulties. Mr. Holbrook never lost faith in  the claims and stuck to-them until the  deal was consummated last week.  The claims are in the high grade belt.  Shipments have been made from the  GoldBug totheTrail smelter whichgave  high values, and from the D. A. and  other claims in the group assays as  200 ounces in silver have been secured.  Similkameen Liberals.  W. J. Snoderass Will be the Standard  Bearer���A Rousing Convention.  Keremeos, July 18.���W.' J. Snodgrass  of Okanagan Falls, was unanimously  elected the liberal standard baarer for  the Similkameen district at a represen-  tatative convention held here yesterday. Every section of the large district was represented, some of the delegates travelling for three days to reach  ..Keremeos. YW. A. McLean, of Hedley  City, was voted in the chair, and  George Kirby, of Keremeos acted as  secretary. Mr. MacLean, an old campaigner, made an excellent chairman,  in fact he could have had the nomination if he so desired, but for business  reasons he declined.  The credentials committee reported  that there were 23 delegates in attendance, seven represented by proxy.  After an executive committee for the  district was appointed, and Duncan  Ross, secretary of the Interior Liberal  Council, addressed the convention on  the work of organization, the following were placed in nomination: W.J.  Snodgrass, of Okanagan Falls; F. H.  Latimer, Long Lake; Jas. Schubert,  Penticton, and L. H. Patton, Fair-  Several ballots were necessary to a  choice but finally Mr. Snodgrass  secured 18 out of-the 30 votes and the  selection was made unanimous.  The winning candidate was loudly  applauded when he rose to thank the  convention. In a brief but eloquent  address he discussed some of the  political issues and closed by stating  that his best efforts would be put forth  to win Similkameen district for the  liberals.  In the 1900 election Mr. Snodgrass  ran against Price Ellison,and had a big  majority in what is now the Similkameen district. He is considered a  very strong candidate and is sure to be  elected.

R. Brown was the unanimous  choice of the liberal convention held in  the city hall last Friday evening.  Over 100 delegates were present from  the various liberal associations  in the district and sufficient repre-  sen ted by proxy to make a total vote of  155 in the convention. C. Scott Galloway of Greenwood made an excellent  chairman. The committee who had  charge of the details ofthe convention  did their work well and everything ran  as smoothly as clock work. No nominating speeches were made and the  delegates proceeded to ballot. The  first vote showed 96 ballots for J. R.  Brown 56 for Thos J. Hardy and three  complimetitry votes. As Mr. Brown  had a clear majority he was on motion  declared the unanimous choice of the  convention amid loud applause.  Mr. Brown then addressed the convention thanking them for the splendid vote and for the^unanimous nomination. He briefly dealt with political  issue* and declared himself in favor of  government ownership of public utilities, of legislation to prevent strikes  and lockou ts, and of compulsory arbitration. He spoke briefly on the necessity that exists for a better administration of public lands; contended that the  liberal party is not a capitalistic party  as declared by the socialists, instancing in support of his contention the  dominion legislation in favor of labor  passed by the federal governmintsince  they came in power in 1896; and concluded by expressing his inteution to  use ail legitimate efforts to carry the  Greenwood district in the liberal interest at the forthcoming provincial election.  The nominee, John Robert Brown, is  a son of Thomas W. Brown of Sarnia,  O nfaf io7"~ Af te Fleav i ngs c li ool fi evror k-  ed ou a farm until he was 20 years of  age.

He came lo British Columbia  in the fall of 1898, and to Greenwood  in the following spring, opening a law  office here and practising alone until  February, 1901, on which date he  entered into partnership with J.

Moultou Barrett, one of the  chief owners of the Golden Eagle  mine, on North Fork of Kettle River,  recently received a letter briefly ad-  visinghimof thedcath of J.H.Fox, wh >  at the time the Golden Eagle was being  worked, was superintendent of that  mine. All the particulars given to  Mr. Barrett were that Mr. Fox died at  Kalispell, Montana, from typhoid.  Although it is probably two years  since the deceased lived in the Boundary there are many residents of Greenwood and surrounding district who will  remember him as a big, strong, husky  looking man and one of the last they  would expect to see at his time of life  claimed by death as a victim.

The Liberals of Greenwood  Electoral District, made a wise  choice in the selection of a candidate at their convention on Friday last;"" JrRrBrown is the "right"  type of man to send to the legislature at Victotia. Honest, upright, industrious and persevering  andof splendid ability, he worthily  represents the great liberal party  and when elected will make a useful member, not only: iu so far as  Greenwood district is concerned  but, the province generally would  benefit by return of several J. R.  Browns to the legislature. The  declaration for part}' lines has  already accomplished something  by inducing good men to allow  their names to go before the party  conventions. It is of the highest  importance that both parties  should nominate only their best.  Greenwood liberals have set a  good example in this respect.  We feel sure that Mr. Brown will  be elected and that the electors  -will not regret their choice.  FOUGHT A GOOD FIGHT.  Peter M. Arthur, the Grand  Engineer of the Brotherhood of  Locomotive Engineers, who  dropped dead while speaking at  the banquet closiug the annual  convention of the Brotherhood at  Winnipeg on July 16, was one of  the most remarkable men of his  time. While running his engine  daily he took an active part in  the organization of the engineers  into the Brotherhood, and was  soon recognized by his fellow  members as a natural leader, and  made their presiding officer. He  set his face against strikes and  avoided entangling alliances with  other organizations, believing  that the Brotherhood would best  achieve success and prosperity by  minding their own business. In  dealing with the railroad officials  in all parts of the country his  candor, moderation of speech but  forceful representation of the  wishes and claims of the engineers commanded universal respect. All parties in contention  came to look upon him as an upright friend, and the engineers  found their condition in life constantly improving under the concessions he peacefully gained for  them." Tftey~seiecfe<r him with  acclamation at every term ending,  and by the time when he died  had come to idolize him almost.  When he rose to speak at the banquet in Winnipeg he was greeted  with deafening applanse, which  must of touched him deeply. He  began as follows:  "Out of the fullness of the  heart the mouth speaketh.' This  to my mind, is a fitting close  of three days of unalloyed  pleasure, bestowed on me and  my associates in this City  of Winnipeg. As I look over  this audience, it is a scene that  inspires my heart with gratitude  to the Giver of All Good, that I  have been permitted to look upon  your faces upon this happy occasion. It is a scene that ought to  inspire the heart of ever)' member  of this Brotherhood, because if  we had no brotherhood, you  would not be here to-night. Let  me impress this upon every member, that the fact of your having  a brotherhood in Winnipeg has  enabled you to gather to-night  and dine together. I want to say  a few things, as it may be my  parting words to many of you.  No one can tell���"  Chief Arthur then fell backwards. He was carried to an adjoining room where  all  possible  was done to restore consciousness,  but death came in forty  minutes.  As an illustration of therespec!t  in which Mr. Arthur was held by  railroad officials: Last summer a  big strike of all 'employoes was  threatened on a Mexican railway  Chief Arthur .was asked by the  general manager of the railway  to arbitrate the trouble iand  promised that whatever course he  decided upon would be carried  out. The chief decided that  the men were entitled to a 17  per cent salary increase aud they  got it.  The organization of which he  has been the head since 1873 has  contracts with 95 per cent of the  railroad companies, including all  the great trunk lines. Besides  voting from $35,000 to $40,000 at  every convention for disbursement  among needy widows and orphans,  it-has paid out in the aggregate  eleven millions of dollars to injured members aud heirs of deceased members. These facts are  strong testimony to the power of  the dead chief for the perfect organization of the Brotherhood,  and with his lovable manners aud  character account for the remarkable love shown toward him by  all the engineers in the land.  One who knew him well says:  While his loss will be keenly felt,  there was a fitness in his end.  Pie fell at the supreme moment  when the affection of his associates for their venerable  chief had just been manifested in the presentation of a  beautiful emblem, and he was endeavoring to express his appreciation. If it were his lot to die  suddenly it could not be at"a happier moment."  Brown is in town and Brown  will be very much in town on the  evening of October 31st.  The general elections will be  held on October 31st. Nominations two weeks earlier.  DR.  MATHISON  WILL RETURN  ABOUT  AUGUST 20th.  DR. MATHISON  DENTIST  Naden-Flood Illoclc, Greenwood. B. C  0.

Club  formerly western students, of Victoria  University, the initiation ceremony  was conducted by the president. The  members passed into the assembly  under cans of British Columbia salmon,  with which they were afterwards  crowned.  The cans of salmon were afterwards  opened, and the company sat down to  a supper. Speeches were made and the  club song was given with much enthusiasm. Experiences in the mountains  and various parts of the sunset slopes  of the Pacific were freely told, and it  was generally felt when the first meeting came to its close that British Columbia would soon have a large place  in the life of. the university. The Rev.  J. H. White, newly appointed Superintendent of Domestic Missions in British Columbia, was elected honorary  president.  B. C. Cr,UB SONG.  Tune:   John Brown's Body.

FOR PRESERVING  AT MODERATE PRICES.  s  if  DEALERS IN FRUITS, COFFECTIONERY  ETC.  ICE CREAM PARLORS  DRINK^^���  A LIFE  (^RENEWER  Tne liberal platform, us adopted at  the provincial liberal convention held  at Vancouver on February 7th, 1902, is  as follows :  1. The immediate redistribution of  the constituencies of the province on  the basis of population but allowing a  smaller unit of. population per seat for  the outlying districts.  2. Government ownership, Dominion, provincial and municipal, of public  services of utilities issoundand should  be carried out in British Columbia.  3. Should it be advisable ut any  lime to grant aid to a railway company  such shall be in cash and not in land  and no bonus of any kind shall be  given without definite and effective  means being taken to safeguard the  interests of the province in the management of the road, control of the  freight and passenger rates, and provision made against such railway having any liability against it except for  actual cost.  4. Immediate construction of the  Coast-Kootenay railway; the Cariboo  railway; a railway from Alberni to a  point on the east coast of the island; a  road in the northern part of the province from the coast to the eastern  boundary with an extension to the  northern boundary; the railway from  Vernon to Midway by north fork of  Kettle river; with necessary branch  lines, ferries and connections.  5. The enforcement of the act now  in force compelling the scaling of logs  by government scalers.  6. That such legislation should be  enacted as will result iu making the  lands included in the various dyking  areas available for cultivation as  quicidy as possible and secure prompt  payments of assessments when due.  7. That the government should keep  in touch with the conditions in connection with mining, protecting said  industry against combines and trusts  and if necessary for the purpose build  and operate smelters and refineries.  No reasonable change should be made  in the miuing laws without full notice  to all parties interested, giving full  opportunity for discussion and criticism.  8. As the province can only advance  by the settlement* within its borders of  thrifty and prosperous citizens, and as  Orientals never become citizens in any  proper sense of the word, we declare it  to be the duty of the government to  discourage Oriental immigration and  employment by every means within  its power, and we appeal to our fellow  liberals throughout the Dominion to  aid us in our efforts to protect ourselves  against the ruinous competition^ of  men having a standard of decency and  comfort immensely below that of  civilized peoples, and who shirk every  duty and obligation of citenship which  the law will allow them to escape.  9. The government ought to prevent  the waste aud suffering- caused by  strikes and lock-outs, and an eanest  effort- ought 'to be ""made1" ttf~provi(le"  some means of preventing such strikes  and lockouts, and we approve the  adoption of compulsory arbitration.  10. The fiscal system of the province stands in need of revision. Taxation should bear upon privilege  rather than upon industry, and no addition should be made to the debt of  the province except for public works  properly chargeable to capital.  11. The retaining of the resources  of the province as an asset for the  benefit of the people and taking effective measures to prevent the alienation  of the public domain except for actual  bona fide business or industrial purposes, putting ati end to the practice  of speculating in connection with the  same.  12. The construction and maintenance of roads throughout the province  to aid in the development of the mining and agricultural districts.  Spokane's Big Carnival.
