 .���*-*���*?  V  Vol. 7.  GREENWOOD, B. C. FRIDAY, MARCH 20,  1903.  No.   30  DISCUSSES  COAL LANDS  Smith Curtis Criticizes Conduct of Government.  In His Opinion���The  Mining Convention a Success.  Smith Curtis, M. P. P. who returned  to Rossland last week after spending* a  couple of months on the coast, discussed the East Kootenay land fraud and  the mining* convention with a representative of the Rossland Miner. He  said in part:  "The convention wais in numbers,  and effective work a great success. 2he  idea of having* all classes and interests  represented made it pre-eminently so.  Rossland riding, as befitting its great  mining interests, took the lead in the  discussions. In addition to the able  work done by the mining contingent  from Rossland city, Messrs. Seaman  of Rossland and Heidmau of Phoenix  representing labor, Mayor Martin Burrell of Grand Forks, representing  ranching interests,and Mr. Gaunce of  Greenwood, on behalf of the merch  ants, were particularly noticeable by  the ability and fair-mindedness they  displayed in their addresses. The harmonizing of interests was best shown  i,u the unanimous appointment.of the  delegation to bring about a settlement  of the' strike in the Crow's Nest coal  mines. T confidently believe success  will attend its efforts.  "The convention supported unanimously a resolution urging the government to resist the claim of the C. P. R.  to the lands in Southeast Kootenaj-  known to be rich in coal and petroleum  and which have been under reserve  since 1890, and also to throw these  lands open to prospectors on equitable  terni3, reserving reasonable supervision over the coal and oil.  "Whether the government will act  on this it is hard to say, but if it does,  not it will he severely reprobated. It  appears, although it was categorically  denied~in" the house hist session, thar  crown grants for about half a million  acres were issued to the C. P. R. as  part.of the land grant to the Columbia  & Western railway which runs from  Rossland lo Midway. The subsidy act  requires that the lands shall be contiguous to tho.railway, but Ihe government endeavored to grant lands nearly  200 miles away, so that the grant was  a fraud on the act. How the lieutenant-governor, with this act before him,  could sign the crown grants, i.s a mystery to me. Tt seems to me his clear  duty was not only to have refused but  to have instantly dismissed ministers  who would ask him to do .so outrageous  a thing iu defiance of the subsidy act  and deed away the very richest portion  of British Columbia.  "I am sure that for the rights the  C. P. R. obtains tinder these erown  grants $5,000,000 could be got from  American capitalists. This giving of  our best assets away to the railways  easily explains why the mining and  other industries have to be taxed to  death and deficits yawn. Had these  reserved lands been opened to prospectors and farmers six years ago royal  ties on coal and oil and other taxes  therefrom would give a yearly revenue  of S500,000 now, and a much larger one  in future years.  "This whole transaction smacks of  corruption. The government says it  passed an order-in council cancelling  the crown grants. That admits a  wrong done. Why did it ever issue  them ? Even if the cancellation is  eventually held by the highest courts  to be effective, it is easy to see how the  C. P. R. which is claiming title under  these grants and issuing writs against  all locators, may be able to worry and  weary defendants until  they  abandon  their holdings or sell them to the company for a song.   .  "When the house meets there must  be a searching inquiry, and 1 shall not  be surprised if grave charges are made  in this connection against the ministry  In any case I shall take a stand in  favor of the government defending  every locator against the C. P. R.. and  also of its passing an act declaring the  crown grants cancelled. In 'lie fase  of such au act the claim of the C. P.  R. will be utterly gone, as it ought to  be, for the grants were in utter violation of, and a fraud upon the Columbia A Western Railway Subsidy Act  or 18%.  "The cancellation of crown grants  was not, I believe, because of a mere  mistake in issuing them, but because  the government got afraid of so plain  a case of malfeasance of oflice. The  administration' hit upon another way  of carrying out thir nefarious swindle.  It brought in a bill to give the C. P. R.  a clear steal of a million acres to which  it had no legal or other right. The  land was to be selected in blocks of ten  miles square anywhere in Yale or  Kootenay and the lands in question  could be cinched. But the bill was  blocked by the opposition by strenuous fighting, although it had the support of that great patriot, Joseph Martin. The C. P. R-, foiled here, reverts  to the first scheme. Any government  opposition is likely to be mere bluff to  bamboozle the people.  CHINESE  LAUNDRIES  Washee Men Eat and Sleep  Where Clothes is Laundried  Good Times Coming.  Times  Will  be  a  Humming   Once  More in Greenwood.  The V. V. & F. engineers are making their final survey which enters  Greenwood on Gold street and coming  on to Silver street somewhere near the  Auditorium, and from there on out towards EJholt. All surveys to both our  smelters are complete and all that  remains now to be done is the construction of the road, which will be  commenced very shortly.  Our high grade properties are attracting a great deal of attention in  the mining world and no less than two  eminent engineers have been here this  week looking up properties ou the  Goldfinch, Providence, Elkhorn, Defiance, B. P. IT. and Lancashire hill.  There are several good locations on the  same lull all having the same showing  small veins from three to 18 inches  wide, but very high grade.  If the Crow's Nest strike had not  occured Greenwood today would be in  a fair way of really genuine good  times. Copper worth 15 cents means  a. lot .to. Greenwood. ���...������.���,. ^   The Board of Trade these days is  doing a lot of good work and their not  saying much about it either. If their  present plans do not miscarry we will  have with us here in the next week oi  so one of the largest conventions ever  held in the district; every farmer,  boarding house keepers from every  mine, smelter, saw mills, hotels, etc.,  witliiii a radius of .15 miles will be  asked to attend to devise a plan of  establishing a twice-a-week market  day here.  I  Amendments Will  be   Made to the  Health By-law.  the application for an extension of the  electric light franchise. Mayor  Smailes and all the aldermen were present. The various- clauses of the bylaw were considered and objection  taken to a 25 year exclusive franchise  unless the company or its associates  agree to giving the city an equivalent  in undertakings of importance.!; Finally the following resolution was passed  and the council adjourned :  That the Greenwood Electric company be informed that the municipal  council of the city of Greenwood is  prepared to consider the extension of  the electric light franchise when the  company or its associates submit a  definite proposition witli regaicl lo the  undertakings, advantageous to the city  of Greenwood, the company or its associates are prepared to carry out in  the event of such franchise being  granted.  rtn  Officers Elected.

Sir : In your last issue I see a notice  purporting to be signed by me. challenging all comers lo debate on Socialism. Please withdraw this uotice.  which was not authorized by me.  Yours truly,  R. B. KERR.  Are the Chinese laundries of Greenwood a menace to public health. Complaints having been made, to the city  council that laundried clothes when  returned from Chinese wash houses  produced a wonderful variety of odors  from that of stale, fish to the more  seductive fragrance of opium. The  matter was turned over to Dr. Schon,  medical officer of health, who investigated and then submitted the following  report :  Alderman McKenzik,  Chairman Board of Health.  Sir : In compliance with your request that I should make an inspection of the Chinese laundries with a  view to discovering whether there is  any overcrowding and what a peculiar  odour attached to clothes brought from  these laundries is due to I have to report that I did so on the 1311- ���������sf.  The result of my investigations do. .s  t>ot lead me to believe that in the  laundries there is any overcrowding  except in one instance viz. in the  sleeping, room of .v?-ring Lee in Gold  Street where seven or eight men are  occupying space sufficient only fot  four or five persons.  With one exception the men employed take their meals in the room in  which ironing goes on where they also  smoke tobacco, and most likely, in one  or two instances, opium. The smell  complained of in clean clothes may be  due in part to this and also to a variety  of soap manufactured in Vancouver  into the composition of which it is  possible that fish oil enters. For the  most part the varieties of soap used  were pronounced by one of the principal merchants of the city as good  standard kinds.  The sleeping accommodation is for  the most part separate from-thewash-  ing, ironing, or drying rooms, and  where this is not so it is confined to  one or two instances where only one or  two men sleep iu the building.  At lliis season of the year it is lo be  expected that clothes will not have a  fresh odour because they have to be  dried indoors and lack the thorough  airing which they receive in the summer when hung out of doors to dry.  Th* only legislation that I can think  of would be something of this nature,  that in every laundry the ironing room  slioul 1 not be used as a room in which  meals are taken or smoking is indulged in. Whether with the present staff  of police it would be practicable to  make such a by-law effective T must  leave to the council.  The number of laundries at present  in operations is eight, so far as I could  ascertain. I am, Sir,  Yours obediently,  J. Edward Schon,  Medical Officer of Health  for the City.  Greenwood, 14th Marcli, 1903.  The report was referred to the city  solicitor with instructions to bring in  amendments to the health by-law with  a view to regulating the Chinese laundries and keeping them free from the  contamination of Chinese sleeping and  eating quarters. Beyond this nothing  bul routine business occupied the attention of the council at the regular  meeting on Monday evening.  Electric Franchise  To Develop the Defiance  Mr. Killeen   Here to Construct Necessary Bridges.  Wm. Fowler has madeconditional arrangements to purchase the Defiance  mineral claim, situate on Providence  creek, a shor. distance above the Providence mine. The Defiance is owned  by Messrs. Hal. Cole of Spokane, and  Steele of the Palouse. Eight or nine  years ago when Howard C. Walters  and his associates shipped ore from  several Boundary Creek claims to the  Tacoma smelter that included from  the Defiance- was amongst the richest  ore sent out. Three months ago when  Mr. Fowler was thinking of endeavoring to secure the claim he crushed  some of its quartz ore and panned it.  The "prospect" he obtained assayed at  the rate of $1,099 to the ton, $137 being  i..  mv.'.I ���,..r' CP62 :--  ��� '*������   *   v;>. !���.'--*      "��* 'i ���  to g- i ii ���! .     fit.      M   i\    u . ���   ;o:ltl'ul  of it for twelve months, and in the  course of a week or two lie will commence to develop it. There are two  prospect shafts on. it now,, one 20 feet  -in depth and the other 14 feet, and a  25 foot drift from the latter. As Mr.  Fowler is most persistent in following  a vein it may be expected that a month  or so hence he will be in a position to  report that he is on the vein and is  getting good ore.  Wins Another Cup.  Word has been received from Rossland that Messrs. J. S. Birnie and F.  F. Ketchum tied with a score of 31  points, the highest made iu the grand  points Curling competition for the  Spring Cup, presented by .1. W.

Merritt tied with Mr. McQueen of Rossland for the third prize  which is a shaving min-or,presented'bv  the Rossland Curling Club.  This handsome cup is one of the  bonspiel trophies and will be on exhibition in A. Logan it Co.'s, window,  with the Mackintosh cup.  It is rumored that Messrs. Ketchum  and Birnie will run a foot race, on the  24'.h of May to decide on first prize.  That Challenge.  Council Wants a Definite Statement  From Company.

P���� Teas   Six Months   To f'OBBZON COUNTKIES...  FRIDAY,   MARCH  20, .1903.  W. F. OF M.  Fifty  years ag*o wage earners were  throwta into prison ior daring to organize.   Today  such  a  course   would be  impossible.   Unions are so well organized that they must be tolerated  if not  welcomed by  a   certain  class of employers.   That class are  unconscious  believers in the Divine right doctrine.  They, are the absolute owners and they  caa  work their properties as they see  fit.     One James   Dunsmuir  who   inherited valuable coal  mines on Vancouver Island  possesses   all   the prejudices of President  Baer but little of  the latter's ability.   Mr. Dunsmuir for  years opposed the organization of the  men employed in  his  mines.    Officers  of labor unions were forbidden to ride  otj  his railways and every other kind  of weapon was used to prevent organization.   But the   men   did  organize  despite Mr. Dunsmuir's efforts.    They  have now decided to join the  Western  Federation  of Miners and  Mr. Dunsmuir is up in arms again.    He says he  will close his mines for years rather  than have them worked by  members  ef a foreign organization.     Mr. Duns-  muir's course does not   surprise any  one; it is consistent with his past, but  it is surprising* to find newspapers who  ought to know better endorsing that  position.  ,   , The_.Western^Fe^rat|on.:j)X.MiS*!S.-  ia today au international  organization  having members on both sides of the  line.   Its head office is in Denver, Colorado'.     That  is  a dreadful situation  isn't It ?   It is really time to pause and  to deprecate foreign  dominance.   The  newspapers of Canada have struggled  along some how under the dominance  of   the   International    Typographical  Union  with  headquarters   at   Intlian-  apoli^, and the magnificent blocks that  have been erected in the various cities  of this unfortunate country are not likely to come tumbling down because thye  have been erected by bricklayers, joiners, carpenters and   others the   head  officers of whose organizations are in  tb�� land of the Stars and Stripes.   The  Western  Federation   of  Miners is no  better nor no worse than other inter  national labor  organizations   and   is  "dominated" to uo larger extent.   Its  local officers will compare favorably  with the officers of other organizations.  They- have made mistakes in the past  and are likely  to make them in the  future but it is not fair to direct all  the criticism at thia organization because it is international.  In this connection it is just as well  to refer to the silly reports which interested organs have been publishing  to the effect that recent labor troubles  have arisen through the manipulations  of interested Americans. First it ^as  stated that American coal dealers had  started the trouble to keep Canadian  coal out of the American  market, now  B. C. copper out of the market. We  do not believe these statements. If  they were true, the local unions would  be the first to take action. If they discovered that their officers were in  league with designing Americans to  stille important industries in this  country punishment would follow or  they would soon leave the Western  Federation of Miners.  Personally we would like to see a  Canadian Federation of i <abor having  dominion over all labor unions in this  country. We believe that such a  federation can and will be brought  about, but until it is, it is absolutely  unfair to endeavor to prejudice the  public against one particular labor  organization.  ...$ 2 00    1 25    2 SO  ���*!

WHEN  OUGHT  WE TO  GO TO A DENTIST?  Many think it unnecessary  to deA^ote particular attention to tlie teeth until the  appearance of the mouth is  affected by damaged, decayed or broken teeth. Others  trivc the teeth no attention  till pain compels them.  The stupidity and shortsightedness of either policy is  evident.  .Everyone who thinks a  moment on the subject knows  that food cannot be masticated  satisfactorily if one or more teeth  are tender, inflamed, decayed, or  othervise out of working' order;  aud if this be the case, the mouth  requires immediate attention.

You'll be pleased.  mlth &  see the  sel'ing  nm  "The Greenwood board of trade is  apparently acting with undue haste in  this matter. It is all important that  the mines and smelters be supplied  with a cheap and constant supply of  coke. But would it not be better to  hold the Dominion coal lands in reserve against the time when the arbitrary action of the coal mines of East  Kootenay really necessitates the inter  ference of the Dominion government ?  There is nothing to fear in this respect  at the present time if the British Col  umbia government does its duty and  issues licenses for coal lands in the  East Kootenay "reserve." There is  every reason to believe that these  licenses will soon be issued. There is  also every reason to believe that as  soon as these licenses are issued, sharp  competition will quickly follow between the operators of the new mines  and the Crow's Nest Pass Coal company, thus insuring the long-looked  for condition so far as cheap aud adequate fuel supply is concerned. It lies  within the power of the Dominiou  government to check the greed of the  coal companies, but we seriously question the advisability of the federal  authorities entering into au industrial  competition before it is really necessary, for the reason that it might  hamper individual enterprise to a very  large extent."  The above is from the Rossland  Miner and refers lo the resolution of  the Greenwood Board of Trade to be  submitted at. the.annual meeting of the.  Associated Boards. There is nothing  particularly new about the Miner's  argument. It is trotted out on every  occasion when there is a movement on  foot to promote the interests of the  masses. A few Rossland [soeculators  expect to gobble up the coal lands in  the South East Kootenay "reserve" in  the event of tl e reserve being lifted.  The Greenwood Board of Trade is prepared to assist the Rossland board in  its fight against allowing this reserve  to fall into the clutches of the C. P.  R. but it is not prepared to pull any  private chest nuts out of the fire.  Even should the Rossland parties  secure the East Kootenay coal measures, there is no assurance that the  Boundary smelters would secure a full  and regular supply of fuel. Rossland  speculators are .10 better���nor worse  than other speculators. They arejnst  as likely to sell out as they are to develop those coal measures.  The Greenwood Board of Trade has  suggested the only effective remedy  for the situation. There are markets  for all the coke and coal East Kootenay  can produce. Mining aud smelting  are among the most important industries of this country and should the  government take such action as will  insure a permanent growth of these  industries, the interests of neither coal  company nor Rossland speculator will  be jeopardized.  We hope  that the Miner is not voic-  ROUNDARV   VALLEY   LODGE  No. 38, I. 0.0. F.  Meets  everv   Twr-silav   Rveu'ui" at SCO  in   tlie  1. O. O. K."H:ill.
