For two or .three weeks past it has  been understood that there was a probability of Mr. S. F. Parrish, M. 10.;  manager of the B. C. mine, in Summit  camp, owned by the . B. C. Chartered  Co., Ltd., of Montreal, Quebec, taking  charge of the Le Roi .mine, at Rossland. It ��� was; known-, .to some of Mr.  Parrish's friends^tliafcinegotiations to  that end, had.,been.; iiji.proifress, but  publicity was not given to the fact,  .until this ��yeek,, ,when,.Mn response to  enquiries, Mr. 'Parrisli.admitted that  he had been appointed general manager of the Le Roi min'e at; Rossland  and of the Le Roi company's smelter  at'Northport, Washington. '; He will  leave for Rossland'next week to enter  upon his .new '.duties, but will, not yet  relinquish management of the B.C.,  Visiting this mine whenever, necessary.  Whilst Mr. Parrish's removal from  the,Boundary will, be very generally  ���regretted his ;n.umerousi /friends will  have, sincere pleasure in heartily congratulating him upon liis' accession to  the management of one/of the.biggest  :and: rilost important of 1 Ihe-"mines of  British Columbia, and will wish him  marked success; in the direction of its  aifairs. ' With Mr. A. J. McMillan as  managing director and Mr. Parrish as  general.manager,the excellent record  the L�� Roi jnadc-lasl year under.(the  able management of Mr. John H.'McKenzie, the retiring manager, should  be well maintained,, if... not-J tn proved  upon, to the material benefit of-i'Rbss-  land particularly, and the mining in-  .dustry of the prdvincejin general.  Mr. Parish has had many years  mining experience. He was mining  in Colorado 24 years, of which 13 to 14  years were spent about .Leadville, in  charge of various work and properties,  among^the -more~"impOrtant"of these  having been the mines of the Chrysolite Silver Mining Company, and of  the Yak Mining, Milling and Tunnel  company.  About three years ago Mr. Parrish  came to the Boundary to take charge  of the B. C. mine. At that time the  B.C^was'just commencing' to ship ore  to the smetter,'and in this connection  it was the pioneer of the Boundary,  beiug the first shipper of ore 111 quantity. For two years it maintained a  continuous output, but when the price  of copper slumped heavily operations  were suspended at the mine which was  closed for several'month's. ,;'��� Last summer shipping, vvas resumed and** it continues ' to-day.   This   mine   has   pro  duced to-date nearly 90.000 tons of <>re.  of a good grade. it> : >;>|>er con1- n'  ���veragiiig about live |�� ;i ���/������it.  Besides continuiii:; li'.. c..>:.:.

He has also during  his residence in the district reported  on a number of mining properties. His  departure from the district will be a  distinct loss to it, but it is.some consolation to know-that the Boundary  will not yet entirely lose the benefit of  his valuable services.  k\>- s.,' Jinii,'y  Greenwood vs. Phoenix  Oreeiiwood Curlers Get The.

At the skating rink last Friday evening-, the most unique game of hockey  was played. The bachelor and benedict teams who p'ayed baseball last  iummcr tried their hands at hockey.  Many of those who took part had never  handled a hockey stick and some were  strangers to skates. D. Bannerman  captained the married men and W. M.  Law the bachelors. The single men  kad much the stronger team. They  had about four experienced hockey  players who had the'puck tha most of  the time and s^ei^j^heni^they^felLl.ike  ifr "The score was about 6 to 1. Mr.  Bannerman was goal keeper for the  bentdicts and in the absence of proper  support (two stout props) he endeavored to keep the puck out by lying between the flags. The bachelors took  unfair advantag* by raising the pui;k  over his prostrate body. Mr. Law kept  up the side of the rink and when the  puck did come his way it was always  an off side. The game was witnessed  by a number of spectators who seemed  to enjoy it more than the players.  This Friday nignt a team from the  Fire Department will endeavor to win  over the senion hockey team.  A team of juniors went to Phoenix  this week and were again defeated by  the boys on the hill.  Tt is now His. . Worship, Mayor  Smailes. After a keenly" fought contest, Ralph Smailes won over his  opponent Geo. R. Naden by a majority  of four, votes out of a total of. 156. <  In accordance with , the agreement  entered into, when the caudldates  withdrew, D. J. Sullivan was nominated for thebflice. Shortly afterwards  Mr. Smaiies was placed in 'nomination.  Mr. Sullivan retired, dnti : Mr. Naden  was again nominated, leaving the con-  .test to the two previous candidates.

We  believed from the outset that good  service should have been rewarded by  re-election but a ��� narrow majority  thought otherwise and we humbly bow  to the majority. The mayor-elect is  an able business man who should give  an efficient' and progressive administration of municipal affairs. Judging from presetat indications there will  be plenty of opportunities during the  v- ~.*K .-������ ��� ������'���*, - i * . .    ���: ..;.   . '���..'���.'.  .;��� '���(.;-���  ��� x<ear to:,prpmote and protect, the'inter-  - eats of. the city. The enforcement of.  of wholesome laws and the protection  and promotion of the city's interests  will be matters that will require the  yery earnest consideration of the new  mayor,.and we feel- confident that he  will always act in the best interest* of  tbe city.  THE RIGHT MAN.  The Le Roi company and the minting Industry generally, are to be congratulated upon-the fact that Sr F.-  Parrish has accepted one of the most  responsible positions connected with  the industry in the province. The Le  Roi is yet one of the leading mines.  It and the Northport smelter employ a  large number of men. There" have  been serious troubles in the past, but it  will not be Mr. Parrish's fault if  things do not run smoothly in the  future. Mr. Parrish is a thorough  wholesouled gentlemen possessed of  tact and judgment and plenty of the  milk of human kindness. If the men  play fair with F. F. Parrish they will  find in him a fctrong champion and  friend. Mine managers who believed  that men are entitled to no consideration have been responsible for much  of tbe trouble in connection with the  mining industry in this province.  grant based on the average attendance  should exceed $L500. With this expenditure no fault can be found; indeed if  there is any criticism at all it should  be directed against the salaries (which  school teachers are paid. Men and  women engaged in a most important  work should receive the very highest  renumeration; instead it is the common  practice to give them the minimum  salary and the maximum amount of  abuse. The principal of the Greep-  wood school should certainly receive  more than $85 a month. ,  i * *  Turning to the extraordinary expenditure, the demands of. the trustees can  not be met from the ordinary revenue  nor can the amount be raised by a special school tax up to the full limit which  the law allows.    There  are only  two  ways open;  one is to issue a second  school loan and the other is to make  such   representations   to   the  government as   will   induce   them   to   treat  Greenwood   fairly,  in. the   matter  of  school      appropriations.    All     ; cities  of the province <except Greenwood and  Grand Forks have been furnished with  ample school buildings by the government.-   There is no reason >why those1  two cities, should be subjected to unfair  treatment. . In   Rossland $35,000  has  been expended in  schools and school  sites and  not one dollar of this was  contributed by the municipality.   The  government should reimburse the city  for the cost of the site and alsorprovide  the  $2000  necessary  to complete   the  school building.   If this were done the  maintenance of the schools  would not  be a serious matter.  With the necessary number of pupils  viz twenty who are likely to be available after July 1st, a high school should  be"establishedlierVand^ the'additional  cost above the governrrent grant will  not be a serious matter.  The very best eduoational facilities  should be the aim o f school trustees,  city council and citizens! These can  not be seeured without cost. But  there is a limit and a very short one to  the revenue producing powers of the  municipality. It is impossible to take  blood out of a stone and it is equally  impossible to extract more money out  of a municipality than the law will  permit to be raised.  If the government would start the  city on a fair basis the matter could be  arranged much more easily.  Dave Evans-who recently leased the  Humming Bird mine, the well known  North fork proposition.reports that the  ore shipments by sleigh to the Granby  smelter, will be coonmenced about the  middle, of February. Four men are  engaged at development work. The  ore shute in the face of the drift is now  three feet wide and tlie average values  are $23 per ton.  WHEN OUGHT  WE TO  GO TO A DENTIST?  Many think it unnecessary  to devote particular attention to the teeth until the  appearance of the mouth,is  affected by damaged, decayed or broken teeth. Others  give 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  other vise out of working- order;  and if this be the case, the mouth  requires immediate attention.

Tbe estimate of expenditure presented by the Board of Trustees, is a matter for the serious consideration of the  ratepayers. Last year or.dinary expenses of the school over and above  the amount paid by the government  ���were somewhere in the neighborhood of  $806, ' not a. serious matter1 If the  trustees would definitely state where  the ordinary expenditure ends and  wheie the :xtraordinary begins, we  believe that the cost this year for th-:  ordinary expenses of the school will  not be as large as that of last year.  Salaries, fuel, janitor and incidentals  aggregate $2370 and the government  Manager Tonkin of the Crow's Nest  Pass Coal Company has decided that  company's stores arc troublesome and  unprofitable and that they will be  closed out or sold out as quickly as  possible. There is no sentiment in the  Crow's Nest Pass Coal company; neither is there in Mr. Tonkin. Business  is business with them and the company's stores have to go because it is  not in the interests of the coal company  to run them.  The announcement must be gratify  ing to the people of Fernie. Company  stores are a bad thing for a town.

C. up toward the head  of the north fork  of  tho   Kettle river.  The coal is  a   high   grade bituniidous,  aud with the exception   of  the   Crow's  ��� Nest Pass coal ileitis, the only coal yei  , found   in   southern   British   Columbia  adaptable to  coking.    The  basin   has  not been prospected   to  any   great  extent, though last summer a  three   foot  seam   was  opened   up  on   one  of  the  claims controlled by the British Columbia Coal company.--  A:high!y   impori-  ..ant factor in connection with this  coal  basin is its close proximity to the three  big smelting plants  in   the   Boundary  ."district.    The attention of the  go--ern-  ;menthes been   drawn   to  this section  /and an expenditue  of S5000  has   been  ���sanctioned   for  the  construction   of  a  'wagon road tothe coal  fish's.. Should  the basin turn out,   with  development,  .t'to contain a high   grade   coking  coal,  -, there is little doubt that a railway   will  ';;,be constructed up the North Fork.    The  '���^elevation of the coal fields above Grand  ^Forks' is 1700 feet.  "Recently Montreal, Toronto,   Hamil-  i.;tou and Ottawa (Ontario)  capital  has  "been secured to  prospect  and  develop  'iextensive holdins' and Spokane is  also  '���'������now interested.

One copper furnace was closed down  a few days ago, on account of the  shortage of coke, but it is learned that  -large-shipments of \x>al and cokeare  now on their way to the smelter, in  consequence of v.likii the large copper  furnace will be put back into blast.and  iprobablyan additional copper furnace  started, making four copper furnaces  in all. This will therefore be the  means ipf 'giving employment- to the  large number of men now laid off.  James Sutherland and . Phil McDonald who are working the Elkhorn  claim at the "northern end of the city  have,a new shaft down 45 feet. They  struck; a vein of rich pre at*40 feet  which has widened to 8 inches of solid  ore and is-still-improving. The ore  shpws native silver and gold and will  give [high, yalttes. Two men are now  working tint next week three additional  men 'will'.be added. An ore shed will  be erected and shipments will be commenced at au early date.  & BARRY YUILL  PKACTICAl.       WATCHMAKKK       AND  a-"1 '-'������'-"        'J8WEUE8.  AU work guaranteed   GREENWOOD,  V. V; & E. Right of Way.  The question of the right-of-way for  the V. Y- & E. over the Clement property, both for the smelter spur and for  the Phoenix line has .been settled by  an amicable agreement with which  both parties express themselves as satisfied. The chief difficulty throughout  has been that the landowners refused  'to "deal'with'the, railway for the smelter  spur without first getting- full information and dealing at the same time for  the Phoenix branch,'both these lines  crossing their property, the junction of  the rights-of-way'; hi fact, being partly  on the land inwhich they are interested.  This seems a very natural position for  them to to take, but the railway has  not been in a position till quite recently  to treat for the Phoenix right-of way  at this point, and for that reason the  company made no offer for tho whole  right-of-way till Thursday evening,  the 29th inst. Negotiations on Thursday evening resulted in,a bargain being struck early Friday morning.���  Gazette.  Mining Stocks.  Lower Levels Must Be Proved Be-  i i fore Prices will Recover.  British Columbia mining stocks at  home and abroad continue to show but  little, if any, signs of improvement.  The- annual or ^special, meetings of  several ..important' properties which  have been recehtly held, and the announcements made to the public there  at, do not appear to have favorably  affected the market ;in any single instance.  Cariboo-Camp McKinney is doing  well as its recently announced dividend shows. The position of the Yhiir  is >\ell known and whatever the lower  workings may disclose in time a large  amount of ore i.s insight in the upper,  workings. The;!. Rambler-Cariboo  recently announced that the condition-  of the property warranted a large expenditure on additional plant. : The  report sent iu  by manager Makenzie,  THE-NEW=  Remodelled, Renovated and Refurnished.

S% B. munroe  gopper Street.  of tlie Le Roi, showed a splendid Jiet  profit for the preceding seven months,  and Mr. Kirby's latest report on the  Centre Star claimed a large amount of  ore in sight and 1.he positive statement  that a process had been found to con-  con trate the low grade ore on a commercial basis. The War Eagle report  is expected this month, when the public will be informed of the result attained in ihe lower wo: kings, which  have been steadily developed during  the past year.  In spite of these and other favorable  official"statements which have recently  been made, it is somewhat difficult to  understand why the stock market  prices should remain dull and inactive.  J. H. Curie in his review of American mines from an English stanppoint  claims that the most disappointing  feature of British Columbia mines is  the fact that they have only proved  fairly remunerative at shallow depths  and that among the best known properties in the Kootenays including the  Ymir, Le Roi, Centre Star, War Eagle  and others, the lower workings have  so far proved decidedly disappointing.  This cannot be said of the Granby and  the B. C. Copper, Co.'s properties, and  in the case of theie mines the problem  of quarrying" ou*- low- grade ore and  treating it on a.commercial basis has  apparently been solved.

Macpherson, the liberal candidate, held  the seat for Burrard for, the liberal  party in th_ bye-elections today,  necessitated by the lamented death of  George R. Maxwell. The majority  from Vancouver city and four rural  polling stations is 76, and this will  probably be increased to 125 or 150  when all returns are in. The election  in the city, which contains fully  four-fifths of the total vote, was the  closest that has i��ver been recorded the  whole secret of Foley's strong running, being the intensity of feeling in  this western province as to the. necessity of drastic measures for the prohibition of Asiatic immigration, which  Foley made his one and only plank. It  was on this that the labor vote "went  solid", even against the liberal candidate; and unless the liberal government adopt stringent restriction measures it is a foregone, conclusion that a  conservative-labor candidate will stand  the best of all chances of success when  the general elections come around.  Macpherson is a vigorous young  man, and is pledged to do' his utmost  to advanoe Asiatic immigration restrictions. The future of the liberal  party in this constituency, for a decade  at the least, rests upon   his  success in  this regard.
