JACKSON,  general Passenger Agent,  Spokane, Wash  Associated Boards  Annual Meeting Will be Held on March  18  The annual meeting of the Associated Boards of Trade of eastern B. C.  will be held in Fernie on March 18th  as first announced. Under the by-laws  the date fixed for calling the annual  meeting is the first Wednesday after  the BopeningJ of the legislature. As  the opening of the legislature has been  postponed by the government-an usual  proceeding���it was.thought that this  would also mean the postponement of  the Associated Boards meeting. President Buchanan of Kaslo,' has settled  the matter.    He says:  "The question comes up as to whether we should now postpone our meeting for three weeks on aceount of the  postponement of the date of the meeting of the legislature. My present  intention is to proceed as at present  announced. I have a r.quest from  Greenwood, or at least a suggestion,  that I should hurry ^p the meeting in  view of the coal mines strike, and while  I do not see that we could bring it on  earlier than the time now fixed, a further adjournment would seem like a  shirking of a call to a mission of possible service to the country."  The Fernie Free Press makes the  following complimentary reference  to Geo. F. Dougherty of Greenwood,  president of the Provincial District NO-  6 W. F. of M. who is at the scene of the  strike.  Mining Convention  Greenwood Sends a Large Delegation  to Victoria  The Greenwood delegates to the provincial mining convention left for Victoria by the Great Northern on Sunday  morning. There were ten in the party.  At the meeting held on Friday evening  there was a large attendance. Over  ^00^^mt>!KS,^f.t^^WQWed^J,t..V5as decided to leave the election of two delegates to the Greenwood Miners Union.  The Union met and elected Sid Oliver  and Wm. Essenza. The other delegates were Mayor Smailes, Frederic  Keffer, Albert I. Goodell, Harry Johns,  M. Gilbraith, H. P. Dickenson, W. G.  Gaunce and I. Robert Jacobs. At  Friday night's meeting a resolution  was passed instructing the Greenwood  delegates to bring up at the convention  the discussion of compulsory arbitration. The delegates were also authorized to work to secure the holding of  future conventions in one of the mining  towns of the interior.  BOARD OF TRADE.  The committe of the Board  of .Trade appointed to secure  suitable quarters for the Board  meetings, have secured the store  in the Windsor block until  recently occupied by Anderson  the druggist. The room is well  heated and comfortable and will  make excellent quarters for the  Board of Trade. The Board will  hold regularly weekly meetings  on Wednesday afternoon at  5:30 o'clock.  City Council  Business Transacted at Last Regular  Meeting.  At the regular meeting of the city  council held on Monday evening Aid.  Bannerman was voted to the chair in  the absence of Mayor Smailes and all  the other aldermen were present. The  estimates were considered in committee  and Aid. Ross gave notice of an estimate by-law for next meeting. The  indemnity bylaw was read a third time  and will come up for final passage after  the estimates are passed.  Aid. Kirkwood gave notice of a bylaw to increase the dog tax.  From 40 to 50 men continue to be  employed full time at the Cariboo McKinney mine, Camp McKinney The  Waterloo working force numbers 17  men, while Hugh Cameron has several  men shaft-sinking on the Teazer.  MINE IS  IN RICH ORE  Big Returns From Recent  Providence Shipments.  Third Payment Will be Met on March  1st  The last carload of Providence ore  sent to the Trail smelter will give a  gross value of about ��170 to the ton.  The smelter returns have not been received but the check assays made by  W. E. Segsworth which in the past  have closely tallied with the smelter  returns show that the ore runs to this  high value. The values are 300 ounces  silver and $24 in gold. In addition to  the ore sent to Trail, a second carload  of second class ore was sent to the Sunset smelter. The net value of this ore  is about $25 a ton. Today another carload of first class ore was loaded for  the Trail smelter bringing the total for  the mine up to 368 tons.  Since August last ore to the value of  over $35,000 has been taken from the  Providence and the vein is stronger  now than at any stage of development.  As recent returns show, Ihe values are  iuereasing.  -There are now 21 men employed at the  mine. The third payment of 312,500  is due on March 1st and will be paid  and the linal of the same amount falls  due o��.j;ujje_lst.   ...,,;,��������..  A. H. Sperry came in from Spokane  this week.  J.

The act directed against  Canadian banks doing business in  Washington has been defeated by the  setnue so that the only obstacle to the  Bank of Montreal opening up in Spokane has been removed.  I. A. Dinsmore, provincial police of-  gcer at Grand Forks and chief license  inspector for the district is seriously ill  at his home. Tne trouble is internal  .hemorrhages which left him very weak  but the latest reports are that he is improving.  John McPhail an experienced coal  miner who has charge of the work on  the Rock Creek coal measures for the  Ashnola Smelter Ltd. reports that there  is a four foot seam of good coking coal  on the property and that he is confident  that in thirty days he can show as nice  a body of coal as there is in the province for the same amount of development work.

Dr. McRae has returned from  the meeting of the Kootenay Presbytery at Nelson.  A meeting will be held in the curling  rink on Saturday night at eight p. in.  for the purpose of organizing a rifle  association.  Mrs. (Dr.) H. S. Simmons and  Master Harry left on Wednesday for  their old home in Fredriction, N. B.  where Mr. Simmons' aged father is  seriously ill. They expect to be away  about three months.  H. P. Griffin who spent the winter  on the coast, returned to the district  this week. He has been appointed by  A. K. Stuart to collect mineral exhibits  for the St. Louis exposition.  A party of V. V. & E. surveyors are  camped at Boundary Falls. The party  is in charge of engineer Pollard and  comprises about twenty men. The  final survey between Midway and  Greenwood will be completed preparatory to beginning active construction  about April 1st.  D. R. Young, managing director of  the Ashnola Smelter company, passed  through on Wednesday t:> Rock Creek  accompanied by four experienced coai  miners. They will go to work on the  recently acquired coal measures with  the object of securing trial shipments  for Greenwood, Grand Forks and Nelson B. C.  Jame* Hunter, a young man who five  months ago sustained serious injuries  in the Cariboo McKinney mine, occasioned by his having been caught in a  fall of rock, has returned home. He is  unable to bearweight of his body the  on the foot that was so badly crushed,  but he is gradually regaining the use  of it, so that he ishopeful of being able  to eventually walk without the aid of  crutches.  Quite an exodus of mine and smelter  employes, thrown  out of employment  by the stoppage of fuel supplies  from  the Crow's  Nest  Pass coal  mines,  is  aking place.    Some of the men see no  -prospect of anearly-settlement- of-the  labor troubles at the coal mines, so they  are leaving the province at once to  en  deavor to find regular employment elsewhere.    Others are waiting a week or  two in hope of an early settlement  being arrived at.    There is among many  of the men an opinion that mining districts wholly dependent upon one company's   collieries  for   their   coke  and  coal supplies, and that company   seemingly unable to  avoid  strife  with   its  employes,   do not offer much   inducement to men desirous of  making  permanent homes for their families,  conditions being too precarious.    As a consequence districts so  situated  suffer,  the better workers seeking employment  where these disadvantages aie less frequently experienced.  Mrs. Coryell of Grand Forks is visit  ing at the home in Greenwcod of Government Agent McMynn From her  it has been ascertained that her son,  John A. Coryell, well known throughout the Boundary district in which for  about ten years prior to volunteering  for active service in South Africa he  1'ad been engaged in laud surveying  and civil engineering, is busily employed in railway survey work in the Transvaal. His party, which is one of several similarly employed in that country, has surveyed more than a hundred miles of the route of a new railway line. She also tells an interesting  anecdote of a wrestling bout between  a. tall Boer and a Canadian of smaller  stature, in which the latter seemed to  be getting the worst of it until "Jack"  Coryell shouted to him to stick to his  man, adding,"The Maple Leaf Forever," which cry gave the Caimuck fresh  energy, so that he came off victor .  Join the Greenwood Board  of Trade This Week.  Want Name of Kettle River Mining  Division Changed.  A largely attended meeting of the  Board of Trade was held on Wednesday afternoon, The president Geo. R.  Naden was in the chair and among  those present were H. F. Mytton, T.  A. Garland, D. C. McRae, secretary  Wickwire, W. G. H. Belt, Arthur M.  Whiteside, F. J. Finitcage, J. T. Caulfield and Duncan Ross. The following  were elected new members : Dr. J. E.  Spankie, F. M. Elkins, Andrew Saler,  S. Grierson, J. L. Coles, J. L. White,  J. R. Brown, L. B. Hodge, Dr. H. S.  Simmons, E. Jacobs, H. A. King,  Thos. M. Gulley, M. E. Fraeee and W.  E. Hodges. According to the arrangement entered into between the  Board and the Progressive Association  the officers tendered their resignation,  but on motion of Mr. Elkins, seconded  by Mr. F razee, newly elected members,  :'.)'.: ���. -ah^-aA !���.'���;.-. v.--.:;v not accepted and  the t,ii(; o:'licei'a v. iii rocuiil office until  the regular annual meeting in April.-  Messrs.

Brown it was decided to  hold regular weekly meetings of the  board on Wednesday afternoon at  3:30 o'clock.  Mr. Elkins moved and Mr. Mytton  seconded that a committee be appointed to urge upon the government the advisability of changing the name of th��  Rattle River Mining division to that  of ''The Greenwood Mining division."  The motion carried and Messrs. Brown,  Whiteside and Finucane were appointed the committee. It was decided to  elect delegates to the annual meeting  of the Associated Boards of Trade at  next week's meeting.  Late Election News.  Semlin was elected in West Yale by  a vote of 229 to 152 with the Similkameen to hear from which will increase  his majority.  Hon. Mr. Davis, liberal, elected in  North York uy 463 majority.  Huyh Clark, i-onsesvative, elected iu  Centre Bruce by 50 majority.  The Greenwood   skating rink  close  for the season tomorrow night.  C. W. Stack has returned from a bus*  ness trip to Spokane.  "Mr. Dougherty is probably one of  the best qualified men that the Western  Federation ;ould send to represent  them. In addition to his practical  knowledge of mining and his wide ex-  perieuc; in dealing with Unions and  their troubles, he possesses an unusual  amount of good common sense. Coming, as he does from the centre of a  rich metalliferous district where every  man, woman and child i.s indirectly  dependent upon the Crow's Nest fuel,  he brings with him a wider knowledge  of the far reaching effects of the strike  than i.s possed by the average Femie-  ile, and he naturally exerts himself to  his utmost ability to get at the exact  facts in as short a space of time as possible. We understand that Mr. Doh-  erty has satisfied himself as to the accuracy of the average net earnings as  shown by the Company's books, and it  is devoutly hoped that after Mr. Doh-  erty's return from Michel and Morrissey permanent terms of peace mav  speedily be drawn up and signed, and  that the long, intermittant struggle  between capital and labor in the  Crow's Nest may be settled for years  to come.���Fernie Free Press.

General  manager Tonkin has published sworn  statements by himself and general superintendent Stockett showing the average  wages paid to the men   at  the   various  mines of the   Crow's  Nest  Coal   company.    The average net  earnings per  shift for all  mines   is S4.64.    In  November 16 per cent  earned  over S100 a  month, in December 20 per cent and in  January 32 per cent.    This all  goes  to  prove the average wage   in   the  mines  of the Crow's Nest Pass Coal company  is unusually high, and that it must cost  the  company   more,  per ton   per  man  to mine  coal  than   it   does  other coal  " companies but it does not disprove   the  contention of  the men  that the wage  -scale is so inequitable  that  under  it  some men can make over $8 per shift  while others are unable to earn $2 per  shift.   It is difficult to give Mr. Tonkin  credit for either  good  sense or  sound  business judgement when according to  his   own   sworn   statement   he   has a  scale under which the highest earnings  per shift can be S8.38; at the same time  the lowest  net  earning   is   SI.81   per  shift.   The poor devil who cannot earn  two dollars a day does not derive much  satisfaction out of the fact that because  a brother miner has been favored with  an easy place he can make 38.38.    It is  a good thing for the $8.38  a day  man  but tne SI.81 man must suffer, so   must  also the Crow's Nest  Pass Coal company.   We do not pretend to know much  about the coal mining business but  it  does not require  any  special  training  to see that if the wage scale was so adjusted that no miner could  earr   more  than say 35 and that if any man earned  .   less than S3 he should have an   opportunity to follow some other  avocation,  the Crow's  Nest  Pass Coal  company  would   get   coal   mined   cheaper   and  there would be less cause for complaint  on the part of the men.  Mr. Tonkin's published statement  conclusively demonstrates that there  is the very greatest need of readjustments. The Boun.'ary smelters can  derive but little satisfaction out of the  fact that they are using coke made  from coal 10 per cent of which cost over  S6 per shift to mine, wh-'le at the same  time, the men strike because a considerable portion cannot earn a living  wage.  This is a matter in which more than  the Crow's Nest Pass Coal company  and its employees are interested. The  mining and smelting industries demand  first, that coke is produced at a reasonable cost, so that it can be sold at a  reasonable price and secoadly that the  wage scale is so adjusted that any man  who is a miner and entitled to hold his  job can make a living  wage  and  thus  remove one of the most fruitful  cause;  of strikes.  Mr. Tonkin's statements is another  strong argument in favor of a commission. One of its first duties would be  to investigate his remarkable table of  averages.  Count Ptsfukskphytonski of St.  Petersburg was in Greenwood this  week. He didn't register under the un-  assumed name which he bears at home  bnt simply as John Jones. His mission to this country is to study the  system of government.  The Russians are waking up and  they are anxious to learn something  about the system of responsible government in this Canada of ours. He is  travelling westward, having arrived  at Victoria by one of the trans-Pacific  liners a few weeks ago.  After a careful studv of the political  situation at present and of the records  of past political events in the province  he arrived at certain conclusions.  In the first place he  discovered   that  there is a high officer called  the Eieu-  tenant-Governor.    He is appointed by  the Governor-General   of  Canada  acting upon the  advice of  his ministers.  The Lieutenant-Governor is sometimes  described as a mere figurehead.    He is  supposed lo look nice,  to  dress  up in  gay uniforms, to make  non-committal  speeches "at   various   functions,   to attend afternoon teas  and  generally  to  be a leader of society in Victoria.    The  count   discovered   however   that   the  "Lieutenant-Governor had or took  further powers.    In days gone by, governments possessing the confidence of the  legislature were summarily  dismissed  by that august functionary and a  man  called to form a goveument who could  not find one  honest lesgislalor  to do  him honor.    In more recent years governments were known to live and move  and have their doubtful being,  to expend   mone}',   to make   appointments  to arrange to give away the unalienated portion of the public domain to railway  corporations without possessing  the confidence of the legislature.   This  government was -not-interfered- .with-by-  the   lieutenant-governor   possibly   because a former lieutenant-governor lost  his job for being too previous and the  job is worth something.  And the count discovered that under  oursystem of responsible government  some remarkable things are done to retain office. In previous years representation was given only to sparsely  settled districts inhabited by old timers  and remittance men who believed that  changes were a "blawsted" nuisance.  The districts which were being rapidly  developed and were populated by an  aggressive and enterprising people  were herded' together and given the  smallest possible representation.  There was such an outcry against giving the maximum representation to  pocket boroughs, aud the minimum to  the populous districts that the government was finally forced to pass a redistribution act arranging for representation on a fairer basis. However the  act has never been put in force and  will not as long as the government  can prevent it.  Another method of retaining power  is by denying constituencies an opportunity to elect a new representative  when the old one dies or resigns. This  plan applies only to constituencies that  are known to be hostile to the government. The law is certainly clear  enough on the matter, but the machinery for enforcing the law is in the  hands of the government. This plan  appears t'. be very effective and has  oeen successfully worked by latter day  . governments.    It permits  of  all   sorts  ! of manoevuring.    Writs can be  issued  ' and then withdrawn.    The date for an  j election can be fixed and   subsequently  cancelled.    The  government has evi-  dentlv   autocratic    power    to  arrange  i  matters   to   suit   their   own    political ���  interests. i  Another method of still more recent!  date is to not call parliament   together :  while   the   government   is   without  a ;  majority   in   the  legislature.    In   this j  matter too the    ovcrmnent does   a.s  it j  pleases.    Quaintly   worded   proclamn- j  ations calling the legislators  together |  are issued in the name of the king and j  withdrawn    without    consulting   His ;  Majesty,    lu the meantime, influences  r.re brought to bear on the members of  the legislature in order to induce  them  to support the government.  The count also secured much more  information of an equally extraordinary and interesting character. He  left British Columbia this week going  direct to New York where he will sail  for Europe. He decided not to carry \  on further investigations. !  He decided that the Russian   system  was good enough for him.

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 eitlier policy is  evident.  Everyone who thinks a  moment on the subject knows  that food cannot be masticated  satisf actorily if one or more teeth  are tender, inflamed, decayed, or  othervise out of working order;  and if this be thecase, the mouth  requires immediate attention.

The Insurance and Finance Chronicle explains Marconigraph as follows :  When Mr. Marconi sends a signal  from Glace Bay, N. S. to Poldu, in  England, what he does is to create a  disturbance, a wave motion in���let us  call it for convenience���the ether,  which wave motion radiates in all directions, extends across the ocean, and  probably travels much faster than  light. That is to say, the wave (not  the ether) crosses the ocean in less than  the one-hundredth part of a second.  Careless observers imagine that the  transit of a wave is the same thing- as  the transit of the substance of which  the wave is composed. Persons see a  huge wave containing many tons of  water approaching the shore, and they  imagine that the vrater itself.is moving  nearer to the laud. What is really  approaching is not the water, but an  undulation of the water. At the seaside you may see two wave systems  approach and actually pass through  each other, without either affecting  the other. These analogies are pertinent to the subject under discussion because they illustrate exactly what  happens in wireless telegraphy. They  serre to show how Marconi manages  to hit the target every time, and how  he manages to keep his messages from  getting mixed up with each other.  If you' throw a stone into a pond it  starts a series of concentric ripples, a  miniature wave system, radiating in  all directions. The ripples (not the  particles of water affected by them)  the pond in every direction. If you  throw two stones into the pond at some  distance from each other, you start two  wave systems. The interesting point  is that when the two wave systems  come in contact each pursues the even  tenor of its way totally unaffected by  the other. This is precisely what  happens with Marconi's various  systems of electric waves  But now comes the very natural  question, if a hundred electric wave  systems are being radiated in all direction* by a hundred Marconi-sending  stations, how is it possible to provide  that each wave system shall reach the  particular receiving station for which  it is intended aud no other ? As a  matter of fact, each wave system will  reach each and every receiving station;  but each distinct wave system will  only.affect the receiving apparatus it  is intended to affect. We shall better  appreciate the possibilities in this direction if we take into consideration an  analogous state of affairs in connection with the phenomenon of sound as  pointed out in an article on this subject in our. issue of Jan. 17, 1902, A  simple experiment will suffice to illus-  trete: Stand near a piano and sing a  certain note, say, middle "C," the  middle "C" string of the piano will  immediately respond, and no other  string \r?ill he affected. The phenomenon, however, will not occur unless  the string and voice are in perfect  tnne. This sympathetic vibration is  often a nuisance to a pianist. He  notices that whenever he strikes a certain-key.there^is^a^sexpud^^  sant, jarring sound. At first he thinks  it is a defect in the piano. A few minutes investigation may reveal the fact  that the secondary sound comes from  the chandelier, or from some other  piece of metal or glass when struck  happens to correspond exactly in pitch  with that of the troublesome wire of  the piano. There is nothing- erratic or  uncertain about the actions and reactions of these sound waves. A  thirty-two foot organ pipe will always  give out exactly sixteen vibrations per  second; a sixteen foot pipe exactly  thirty-two vibrations, and otic foot  pipe exactly five hundred and twelve  vibrations per second. A sound wave,  whatever its origin, which vibrates at  the rate of 512 each second, will always set in sympathetic vibration any  object whatever which is tuned to  vibrate at that rate. The law is as  absolute as the law of the pendulum.  You may swing the pendulum a long  distance or a short one. but the number of oscillations per second depends  absolutely upon its length, and nothing else has the slightest effect upon  the rate of oscillations. Similar  sympathetic discrimination is observed in connection with the operation of  light waves; in fact, we are indebted  to this discrimination for our enjoyment of the color sense.  Mr. Marconi then ensures that his  messages will be received only at the  right destination by attuning, as it  were._ his receiving apparatus to the  same pitch as the sending apparatus.  Thers is an enormous range at his disposal. He can send electric waves  which vibrate at the rate of a few  thousand or a few millions per second.  Further, to ensure secrecy, he can  automatically and simultaneously, in  both sending and receiving apparatus.  Change the rate of vibration. *  Just received a line new line of  trunks, come and see them. A. L.  White 2nd Hand Man.  Do you use Bliie Ribbon Tea ?  MINERAL ACT 1896.
