Despite the Prevalllue Reputed Business Depression  tBe  Entire   Bomnlary  Is Going
Ahead—Greenwood Leads.
A little over three and a half years
ago : the writer   first eaitie, into  the
-Boundary Creek district He made
the trip several times within a few
months of his arrival between Cascade
and Midway, extending it more than
once as far as McKinney.: He visited
every town and village in the region,
as well as every working mine. He
thinks the risk nothing in stating his
beiief that in August, 1898, there were
" not over 1500 people in all the territory
between the international line at Cascade and'Camp McKinney. In the
same ..stretch of . country :generally
known as the Boundary and embracing
several small towns there is today
doubtless 6,000 people. That is to say
that in the last three and a half years
the population lias quadrupled; and
though there have have been periods
since, when'there was greater surface
activity than now the time has never
■been when the actual volume: of trade,
that Is trade begotten by the district,
was as great as now.' Since then
many mining properties-have reached
the shipping point and the output of
Boundary mines which at that time
was practically nothing."is now  over
'10,000 tons of dre a week.
".   At that-, time, smelters were   hoped.
for,: were expected, today two  smelters
with 'phenomenal records are at work
and continually enlarging and a third
,'is neaping- - the point"where the fires
.will be lighted,   '
:"/*6f"c:otirs^': there -isn't much'.wild-.
catting being done now and too many
are apt to'gauge a country by .that.
Our ' Canadian-wild-catters bacU east
used up all their energy in getting the
money their friends had, when they
unloaded the prospects they bought
here   for   a   few   hundred  or   a   few
thousand dollars for many times their
cost and still owned the majority of the
stock.    The men back east who bought
War  Eagle  and   Republic and   Baltimore  and   a  dozen other stocks   for
"fancy creamery,  gilt-edge"  and all
that when it was the commonest  kind
of "ranch11, have no blame to lay upon
British Columbians. Their own friends
did it.    We out here in the hills got a
very ife'w dollars out of every  hundred
the promoters, got,'   Despite the   disadvantages     incident    to    such,   the
Boundary  and  particularly  the heart
of it—Boundary Creek—has gone fore-
ward, by leaps and bounds.    Schools,,
churches',    business'   blocks,     banks,
mines, ■BmeLtersj roads,  railways,  custom  houses  all  attest these.   There-
'turns   of. Provincial   and   Dominion
revenues in   Greenwood   for the last
fiscal year will exemplify our position
positively, and a comparison with that
of other years will show we are holding pur own.     '-   ' ■-.'.'',.
The 1901 provincial revenue collected; at  Green wood, was S23,197,7c compared, with $20,937.24 collected in 1901..
. Iyike the rest of the Province more-'
over  the: Dominion revenue will show
us paying-much morel than  we are getting.     The .Dominion  revenues were

Simultaneously with the coronation
of King Edward will be that of Araeri-
ca.ii enterprise in - Loiidon. A great
American exposition is to open in
Crystal Palace in May, and the'great
crowd who will come tci'L,ondon to see
tlie: pageant of the King- will see a
great display of',-American products.
The Crystal Palace managers conceived the idea of an-'exhibition of American products and' the American society
iu Tydudon vigorously forwarded -it.
The - result wifl be a ^gathering tli ere
of manufactured, products that will'
give, an adequate . idea of American;
advance and even supremacy in many
lines. . -.- \:."A'A~.:-'a.'x' ' ' -\'-'"fy--:-

Valuable Lands-
The C. P. R. is reported as havirur
paid 3400,000 for between 300 and 4-00
acres -of land near Montreal on which
to erect their 51,500,000 shops.
The Governor's Speech-
The speech of the lieutenant-governor at the opening of parliament foreshadows legislation affecting redistribution, immigration, authority for issuance 'of a new loan; and construction of the Coast-Kootenay railroad.
Railway Work.
A party of Sclavonians • arriving in
town a few days since, and who have
been working on the V, V. & 33, over
in Kettle River valley claim to have
been sent here to await the opening of
work on the Midway-Phoenix branch
and which is to take place within the
next two weeks.
The Globe's "Wisdom.
How well Greenwood is known down
in Ontario may be judged "by the following from the,editorial, page of the
Toronto Globe. "The development of
smelting in southern British Columbia
is now encouraged hy a, combination
of favorable circumstances. Although
American capital and enterprise are
helping to build the extensive smelters
at Grand Forks aud Cascade, they are
both Canadian industries, employing a
great force of Canadian labor, and
affording a market for Canadian goods
as well as for ores from .Canadian
mines." Who ever heard of a smelter
at Cascade but the Globe editor.
Provincial Income and Expenditure-
.The Bodie inine on: .tlie rtsseryation.
is shipping ore to Midway for the
the Greenwood smelter..
The. West Fork people are gtti.ug
pretty well discouraged. They, are
wondering which is the. Better "condition poor mines and good roads, or
good mines and no roads.
The corner stone ofthe lead refinery
in connection with the Canadian
smelting works at Trail has been laid.
Copper mountain,, near Bols-t-cr,
where several Greenwood people are
interested is sliowing up some fine ore
these days. Somebody . refjorts ore
running frojri 35 to 75 per cent in copper a.'.ad a large body at that. Mil Ice i t
3'/z to 7)4 per cent aud that will bt:
good enough. '
In addition to the paper .referred to
hist week, prepared by F. Keffer of lli«
Mother Lode mine, we see that tbe
program of the Canadian Mining-'lru-
stitiite provides for two others on the
mines of the, Boundary, one by 3)r,
Ledoux of New York and one by R. W.
Brock of the Canadian Geological
survey, Ottawa.
According to the public accounts
laid before the Provincial Parliament
ou; its open ing day, the expenditures
for the year , ending June'30th last, exceeded the income something over
$800,000 or in the ratio of ,33.00 expended for every S2.00 received. That
means that the province with a popul-
.xtio'n of say 200,000 is expending- about
S4.00 more per capita than it is receiving; . This is startling but with so
much new country clamoring for roads
and trails and bridges may it not be
wise to incur this debt. Progressive
communities like progressive individuals may som'etinics wisely mortgage
tlie futlire,

There is no more promising section

the government uses its hest discretion as to apportionment of its resources, but it seems very unfortunate
that so rich a region ' should lie held

more apparent to a. Greenwood, man
than to a.ny other, doubtless because so

of Greeai wood men. Greenwood capital
has had nerve if not foresight and

direct concerns has gone out to new
fields and new enterprises with characteristic dash., Meyer's Creek and
McKinney, and Similkameen all show

'  While it is confidently believed that  if not already realized, the amalgamation of the interests of the B, C.  Copper' company and the Dominion  Copper company will certainly ensue  at'no distant date, no official information ofthe same appears forthcoming. Of course tlie companies interested nia.y not be so anxious for a  " speedy termination of negotiations as  '"aire' the people of Greenwood. While  amalgamations may appear fraught  with advantages to both parties yet  where it is a matter of bargain and  arrangement, business prudence may  demand delay and t.".at delay is what  the public must endure even if restive  meanwhile.   The amalgamation must  ��� .  ��� ..    .- .      , ^ . * . ...,| i  ^certainly come and it were wise that tt  came only or, correct conditions. Whesi  both parties to a bargain are anxious  as in this case it must prove to be only  a matter of time.  The acquirement ofthe Pyritic smelter by the Sunset people only whetted  the appetite of ' our citizens however  for bigger things  and ..they^are_n<w  who   are   willing' to'  work "as well'as  wait.

Abbey the American. ,ar,tist_,has  been_g!ven the commission -by King.  Edward to paint the coronation scene.  This may be courtesy but not business'  l?��s there were men who kissed the  back of King Edward's hand the other  day. Rather poor kissing we judge.  The veriest husks to one who knows  the real thing.   -  .The work of annexation goes forward. In his ..testimony before the  court the other day J. J. Hill said that  the Northern securities were negotiating for stock in the Crow's Neat  Coal company. ��� ���  The Chilkat Indians at Haines' Mis  -sionare-reviving old" Salem"practices.  Recently they bUried a young Indian  alive because he was deemed guilty of  witchcraft. . Westward , the . star of  empire takes its way.  . The German Oriental society have  recently unearthed in the ruins of  Babylon wfl at is believed to be the  royal banqueting hall where King  Belshaaar gave the feast to a thousand  of his lords the night he was slain.  What men are pleased to call the fables  of the bible are being strongly attested  in modern times.  It cost four_ citizens of Montreal  $500 cash or six months imprisonment  for borrowing a neighbor's<name just  long enough to vote thereon at the  recent civic election.  The large amount of money the  patriotic Kruger carried away from  Africa when seeking personal safety  doesn't appear to make him happy.  If the Prohibitionists of Ontario are  real anxious for their cause they will  be absent from the polls at the next  general election and present when the  vote is taken on the referendum, In  that way they will increase their  relative strength on the latter question  very materially, as the vote cast at the  general election is to be baais for the  latter.  Great excitement is reported from  Dawson over the concessions made by  the Dominion Government to the  Treadwell Gold syndicate, of all the  ungranted claims oh the Klondike and  tributaries with water rights.  The provincial government's majority seems rather slim for comfortable  working. A majority of two in a  working membership of 35 may easily  be converted into a minority especially  where the majority combines tnree  distinct factions.  NOTICE TO CREDITORS.
