ACTIVITY IS  DEADWOOD  Arlington ���* Burns   Group  Changes Ownership.  Preparations  For  Beginning  Work  on Various Claims.  W. L. Hogg, at one time connected  with the Sunset mining property, and  well known in local mining- -circles, is  expected in from Montreal any day.  The report is current that through his  efforts a deal is about to be consummated for the purchase of the Arlington���Burns group, in Deadwood camp,  adjoining the Elkhorn, and that work  will be begun on, that property as soon  as the final arrangements in the deal  are completed. ~  J.. C. Haas, ;another mining man  formerly actiye in the development of  local mining interests, came in this  .week from Spokane. He is interested  in mining properties also in Deadwood  camp, and Thursday went up there  with a couple of men to do some preliminary work on the Golconda claim  which has been idle during the winter  and isone of a valuable group of claims  in that camp in which Mr. Haas is  heavily interested.  The Butcher Boy, up the West Fork,  adjoining the "Carmi, is shipping  steadily, under the superintendency of  James Dale. The ore is hauled about  25 miles to Midway, where it is placed  on C. P. cars. It is said to be yielding  an average of $40 per ton, the values  being principally in gold, with small  returns in silver and copper. The ore  is said to be of a concentrating character, thus yielding greater profits.  "Why Smith Left Home"  By Geo.  W.   Broadhurst   author of  ^!Whx_l,^ith,__Left_,iiHome";.

' iThere  were present Mayor Naden and Commissioners Sutherland and Parker.  The meeting was presided over by the  mayor, ex-officio member of the board.  The chairman stated that his convictions on the questions of enforcing the  statutatory laws relative to gambling  games and games of chance had not  changed since two years ago. and were  embodied in a letter of instructions to  the chief or police at that +ime, and  which he read to the commissioners.  Commissioner  Sutherland expressed  himself as in favor of goirg even fur  ther in the direction indicated by the  mayor's lettet of instructions and enforce the law in its strictest construction. He said, if we are to have a  "closed town" let us have one in fact,  without evasion of the law in any  sense.  Commissioner Parker said he did not  believe the board should deal too harshly with the hotel keepers, who were already up against a serious problem in  maintaing existence; and he thought  the law regulating them should be  given as liberal a construction as it  would admit of.  After a full discussion of the situation, which was conducted in a very  gentlemanly and friendly spirit, Commissioner Sutherland moved that the  mayor's instructions to the chief of  police be endosed, which was seconded  by Commissioner Parker, and the  meeting adjourned.  ENCOURAGING  REPORTS  Montreal and Boston Copper Company  ANDTHE B.C. GOPPER CO.  Arranging    for    Consolidation    of  Interests.  It having been understood for some  time that the Dominion' Copper company, which owns the Brooklyn and  Stemwinder group of claims in Phoenix  camp, was negotiating with the Montreal and Boston Copper company,  which owns the Boundary Falls smelter and Sunset mine, with the view of  consolidating these two important  mining interests, it is interesting to  Greenwood and Phoenix citizens to  learn anything touching the progress  of these negotiations.  Mr. Alex. Munroe of M��nAr��al��._J;he  managing director of the Montreal and  Boston Copper company, was in Greenwood this week, and in company with  F.- E. Weeks, chief engineer of the  American Engineering works of New  York, visited the smelter plant at  Boundary Falls. Nothing definite  could be learned from Mr. Munroe,  further than that the negotiations  were progressing, at least, still hanging fire.  Yesterday Mr. Munroe was suddenly  called out of town by telegram, it was  said, to Grand Forks. However, the  rumor has gained currency on the  streets, that a prominent shipping  property in Wellington camp had been  bonded by the company for thirty  days, and that the smelter will be put  in operation again between now and  the first of April.  Two Grand Forks Girls Seriously Hurt  Two young daughters of Mr. and  Mrs. E. Disney of Grand Forks, were  seriously injured Monday evening.  They were enjoying a toboggan ride,  a horse being hitched to the vehicle by  traces only. The animal became  frightened and ran away. The tobog-  gar came in contact with an electric  light pole, against which the unfortunate girls were thrown with great violence. They were carried to their  homes and a physician was summoned,  who found that Cathie was suffering  from, concussion of the brain, and that  Amy had received a broken nose and  was badly cut on the head, face and  mouth, besides receiving a severe  bruise on l.er leg. Cathie did not regain conscious.! ess until next morning,  fifteen hours after the accident occurred.  Just arrived, a choice assortment of  candies. Chocolates a specialty, at  Galloway Bros.  THE PRIDE OF  GREENWOOD  Mother Lode Smelter Improvements Progressing  Ready for Machinery and Application  of Electrical Power,  A reporter of The Times had the  pleasure of being shown through the  works of Mother Lode smelter this  week, by the affable and obliging-  general manager, Frederic Keffer.  One may read and read about one of  these great institutions and not begin  to realize what a massive and stupedous  affair it is.   One must see it.  Then he does not wonder what has  been done with the nearly half a million dollars which have been expended  in its establishment; and then when  he is told of contemplated additional  expenditure for enlargements he must  come lo the conclusion that the investors who have devoted their wealth for  the prosecution of the great enterprise,  have had great faith in the mineral  deposits of the country tributary to it,  and especially in this camp.  The Mother Lode mine which was  the original and main incentive for the  erection of the smelter, was located in  1891, and is about three miles west of  it. The British Columbia Copper Co.,  owning this property and adjoining  claims, consisting of the Primrose,  Offspring, Ten Broeck, Sunflower and  Don Julio, was organized in New York  in 1898 with a capital of $1,000,000, and  in 1992 this capital was increased to  32,000,000. Already at the mine and  smelter nearly ��1,000,000 have been  expended.  The reporter did not get- the statement from Mr. Keffer, but it is said  that when he took over the management of the company's works, there  hAdinot.���beenJ_25._feet- of development -  work done on the group, since when  the shipment of ores have been increased from 5,000 tons in 1900 to 138,-  079 tons in 1903, making a total up to  the first of this year of 383,779 tons.  The smelter has treated in the same  time, including custom ores, a total of  429,124- tons  The Mother Lode copper matte has  been converted into copper blister at  Grand Forks and Tacoma up to the  present time, but the management has  been preparing for some time, at large  outlay, for a converter plant pf its own  and a large iron building has been  convenienly erected, in which two converter stands are about to be installed.  The foundations for the operating machinery are in place, ready for its reception, and Mr. Keffer said that in  the short space of three weeks' time  after the arrival of the delayed machinery the process of reducing the  matte in the new converter building  could be set in motion.  ��� Steam power has been in use at the  smelter up to the present time.but electric wires have been strung from  Phoenix to the smelter and when the  new converter plant is started up the  entire works will be driven by electric  power from Cascace. The steam machinery will be retained in position as  a reserve power.  The reporter was shown a mass of  copper matte awaiting shipment, the  estimated valued of which was 510,000.  Minor improvements are going on  at the mine and smelter continuosly.  The day is not far distant when the  Boundary will be known, not only as  a chief mining district of British Columbia, but of the world, and the  Mother Lode will not by any means be  in the rear rank among the chief enterprises.

We  have   in   previous   issues,  says  the   Victoria   Truth,    contended   that   the   only   feasable  way to straighten out  the financial tangle of the province  and  get   out   of   the   hands   of   the  moneylender, is to fall back upon  the laud.    The Provincial  Mining  Association   at  the last  executive meeting-,  held  at   Kamloops, passed a similar resolution.  The  present  government   has  brought  the expenditure within  the   revenues   by    the   heroical  measure  of  increasing-   taxation  with the one  hand, and stopping-  productive expenditure  with the  other.    It even predicts  3100,000  more than the expenditure.     Excellent !     By    this    means   the  province will  be relieved of the  embarrassment in fifty years, and  possibty   three   per   cent  of the  present adult  population live to  see the prosperity of their grandchildren.      That is the situation.  'There  is  no  use  in saying it is  wrong, it is unkind, it is cruel, it  is impolitic.     It is the inevitable  projection of  the previous policy  of the country upon  the plane of  the  ' bitter    reality,      just     as  soon  as the bankers and moneylenders called a halt.     The government   has   been   mere'.y   the  agent of inexorable necessity personified in the  general manager  of the Bank of Commerce. Moneylenders cannot reconstruct a state.  It  requires   statesmen   for   that  purpose  said that  the  merit is not composed of statesmen were there any visible in the  province by   whom its qttalifica-  tions  in that, respect might be  'measured.     So we are in the excruciating coil  of financial  embarrassment and  can find no one  with wit to extricate us.    Yet we  have  assets  worth   at a nominal  calculation  one  hundred million  dollars.    We know perfectly well  that  for a  comparatively   small  proportion of the Crown lands of  the province we could have a railway built from end to end of it at  a cost of  ten or  fifteen million  dollars.     Therefore the Tan d lias  a value.     If the land has a value  to a railway  promoter  who expects to secure it, surelyit should  have some value to us who already  own   it.      How   doss  a  railway  company  use  a  land   grant.    It  bonds it.     It then sells the land  to redeem the bonds, interest and  sinking fund,  after it haa clieu-  ��� atcd  the  laud,  it has the transportation of its produce as a legitimate source of profit.    Let the  province  take   a  leaf out of the  railway company's book.    Let it  throw  the whole  debt  and   the  cost of education  on the public  land, alienating it rapidly and on  easy   terms just as  the railway  company does, retaining light and  easy taxes  upon  the  industry of  the  settler   for  the purposes of  administration.     If   this  is .un  certainly it might be  McBride   govern-  possible then Iiritis.li Columbia  has no resources which the people  desire to possess ami are wil1iti��.>;  to pay for and hns no attractions!  for enterprise and capita!. Of  course such n policy as this will  be derided by sonic !>y whom?  By a whole crowd of grafters and  speculators who work all manner  of devious schemes to get those  resources into their hands for  nothing, that they may manipulate them so as to put that value  into their own pockets which  relieve the province of its embarrassment. If you want an instance take the cas.c of the two  famous blocks in East Kootenay.  Was there 110 scheme on foot to  get the capital value of that laud  away from the province for nothing-. The revenue values of  course would remain. But alienated under an imperfect law such  as exists, that land would have  brought certainly one and probably over two million dollars to  the provinces' assistance, and the  revenue value would have remained as it was. ' As it is, through  the efforts of the schemers to get  it for nothing, and the efforts to  defeat their scheme, the land  is tied, and might as well be  in Euphrates Valley as where it.  it. Its capital value has neither  been secured by alienation, nor is  its revenue value being developed  by an exploitation. There is  precisely the deadlock which is  causing embarrassment the province now crushed under the ruinous assessment. There is only  one way of escape. They must  adopt a land policy which will  render such taxation unnecessary.  MUSIC  Miss M.

AROUND GREENWOOD  General Manager Wilson, of the  Northport smelter, and also representing the Price Bros, of Quebec, came in  to-day. The Price Bros, own the Marguerite mine in Deadwood camp,  which is equipped with considerable  machinery, and on which much work  has been done. They were the original  promoters of the Boundary Falls smelter.  In this connection it is understood  on the authority of a reliable citizen,  that James Breen left Spokane yesterday for the Boundary. It is thought  he siopped off at the Forks, where  Managing Director Monroe met him.  These movements Of these men portend, regardless of the assertion " we  have nothing for publication,'' that  there'll be something more doing in  this camp soon,  J. Peck MacSwain came into Nelson  on the cushions from Greenwood the  other day and is now holding down a  space in The Tribune office. This  shows how quickly a young man may  rise in the west, and Peck will yet  make a million or I:ss out of the  humor that flows from his upper stope  like jui;e from.a cut watermelon.  C. H.

The difficulty existing between Russia and Japan is still on, judging from  the large space devoted to the matter  by the the daily press. But the dispatches are so contradictory they are  even more puzzling than the Russian,  Chinese and Japanese names.  J. E. McAllister, manager of the  Greenwood smelter, was in the city  yesterday on business. Wi-ile here  Mr. McAllister stated that an interesting arrangement had been arrived at  between his company and the Trai  smelter with respect to the copper  matte product of the Canadian Smelting Works. The Greenwood smelter  will shortly install a converter ordered  some months ago, and in addition to  handling the cutput of its own fur  naces will convert the copper mattes  from the Trail works. Hitherto the  Trail smelter has sent its matte products to Tacoma. These products include the regular copper matte and the  lead matte carrying copper as produced in the lead stacks. It is the  intention to ship the lead-copper matte  to Tacoma as before, but the copper  matte will be converted at the Greeu-  wood smelter.���Rossland Miner.  He Had a Good Stock of Grit.  About a year ago a man living in a  neighboring town, while reading one  night ^fter retiring, had the misfortune to overturn the coal oil lamp which  furnished the light. His clothing took  fire and he was badly burned about the  breast. The sore caused by the burn  never seemed to fully heal. He bethought himself of the process of skin  grafting, of which he had heard and  read. He had two brothers who consented to part with a slice of their  j hides, but when it came to submitting  j to  the ordeal they  weakened.

The young man who parted with a  portion of his arm in this case must be  a pretty plucky fellow, for they say he  took no opiates but bore up under the  painful operation with the s��toicism of  an ancient martyr. No names are  mentioned in this case, as neither of  the parties to this story are acquainted  with each other.  Wanted.���Cook Stoves aud Furniture at Clint's, opposite Pacific Hotel.

The Best Remedy for Croup  This is the season when the woman  who knows the best remedy for croup is  in demand in every neighborhood.  One of the most terrible things in the  world is to be awakened in the middle  of the night of the night by a whoop  from one of the children. The croup  remedies are almost as sure to be lojt  in case of croup, as a revolver is sure to  be lost in case of burglars. There used  to be an old fashioned remedy for  croup,- known-'as-hive^syrup,- but some  modern mothers say that Chamberlain's Cough Remedy is better, and  does not cost so much. It causes the  patient to "throw up the plegm"  quicker, and gives relief  in        a shorter time.       Give  this remedy as soon as the croupy  cough appears and it will prevent the  attack. It never fails and is pleasant  and safe to take. For sale by J. It.  White.Greenwood and A. F. Thomas  Midway.  MINERAL, ACT.  Cei'Miiute of Improvement.  NOTICE.  "Lucky   Boy."

A letter in the Cranbrook  Herald of last week contains  some pertinent enquiries re the  Flathead reserve. After producing a copy of Premier McBride's letteF to G. A. Fraser,  M. L. A., of Grand Forks, on the  government's policy,it g'pes cm to  say: "It will be seen from "this  that any number of persons miy  receive licenses to prospect the  same piece of ground, and that  any conflict arising between them  will be subject to suit at law.  There are thousands of claims  for licenses already made upon  the reserve, and it is known that  they are several deep upon the  sanie ground. The law provides  that a claim shall be legal and  valid before a license is issued.  Some.of these claims Avere staked  12 and 15 years ago, and others  from time to time since then.  As will be-seen"by the premier's  letter all these will receive licenses provided they can show legal  and valid lecations, according-' to  their priority. To illustrate:  "A" will receive the first license.  "B" the second, "C" the third,  and so on, provided each can  show that he has a valid and  legal location. One hundred  dollars is the license fee each  year from each license holder.  Each holder of a license would  have the same legal right upon  the ground and to its possession,  there being nothing iii the "Coal  Act" that provides for second or  third licenses or their relative  right. A license is a preliminary  to a title, each license being  issued upon the proof that the  claim was legal and valid, each  would be of equal force and right.  The government having provided  this system-of disposing of the  coal lands,.would be responsible  for all licenses issup.d to prospectors acting in good faith and  without knowledge of others having received licenses to prospect  the same ground. It would appear from this view of the case,  and a knowledge of conditions  there, and people's intentions,  that very serious complications  are likely to arise, both between  the various claimants aud the  government. Ifj the government  continues issuing" licenses indefinitely, and receiving $100 per  year from any number of people  for the same ground, and conveying to each equal rights, it, as  well   as   the   people,   will have  something to do to extricate itself  from the consequence."  The  Japs have captured   four  more Russian torpedo boats.  work will  be' commenced on this  great undertaking in short order.  Speaking of the disastrous  Baltimore conflagration, Dunn's  Review has these encouraging  words: "The disastrous loss of  the conflagration was offset very  largely by the stimulous it will  give to many industries, notably  structural steel. In restoring  Baltimore there will be great activity in the building trades,  while large stocks of good must  be replaced, and orders filled by  jobbers and manufacturers elsewhere. Much of the financial  loss will fall on strong insurance  companies, well able to bear it,  and the course of the stock market does not indicate any heavy  selling- of securities ou this account."  The Vancouver city council is  at war with the police commissioners.  There has been heavy fightnig  between the Turks and Albanians  at Rostoff.  The entire Japanese loan of  100,000,000 yen has been subscribed at Tokio.  The pay roll of 'the mines in  Rossland camp amounted to $40,-  000 for January.  The leading mining journals of  the United States and Great  Britain now list the Granby  niiues among the big- mines of  the world.  One may be justified in surmising that -"Why Smith Left  Home".was because he learned of  "What Happened to Jones."  Frank M. Dallam, of the Palmer  Mountain Prospector, Loomis,  Wash., is about to begin the  publication of a local paper at  Riversi.de, Wash.  The price of flour has beeu increased-65 cents per--barrel-in-the-  past month in. eastern markets.  Wheat aud cotton are the present  kirgs vi the great t;;.n.blir g dens  today.  The Kamloops branch of the  Provincial Mining Association  has been disbanded. The attempt  to force au obligation from the  legislative candidates at the provincial election is said to be the  cause of trouble among the branch  associations.  An eastern country editor tells  this of one of his delinquent subscribers: A frightful storm was  approaching. For safety the delinquent crawled into a hole in a  log. The rains came and bv the  swelling of the wood the hole  was reduced to a size which precluded passage out after the  storm. In thinking over his past  life it occurred to him that he had  not paid his subscription to the  local paper for three years, and  he felt so small he escaped  through the shrunken hole with  ease.  The United States senate on  Tuesday ratified without amendment the treaty with Panama for  a canal across the isthmus by a  vote of ()U to 1.4. The result was  a foregone conclusion, the interest iu the matter being only in  the division of the vote on the  Democratic side which was not  detin'tely known until the roll  was called, all the Republicans  being for ratification.    Doubtless  As this is a mining camp, and  one of importance, its local paper  should of right be largely devoted to the chief industry of the  community or section of country  of which it is the metropolis. As  the editor lias not the all seeing  eye, nor is he a mind reader, he  must rely almost wholly for mining- neAvs upon what he is told of  the various mining interests. He  has not the time at his disposal  to visit all the mines and prospects in his local field, but he desires information abotit them from  the least to the greatest, and  would g-reatl}' appreciate favors  along this line. If youvnsh Arour  local paper to propely reflect the  mining interests of this great  mining camp help it to do so by  voluiitarih' telling the ueAvs-  gathercr, so far as you can Avhat  vou kuow about these matters.

"^(������HU��(f%  0  0  ���  GREENWOOD    WINS  Boys from the City of Ice Poor Players and Showed Poorer Judgment  Throughout the Hockey Game on  Wednesday Evening.  The hockey match Wednesday  evening' last between Greenwood  and Phoenix, for the championship of the Boundary, was a good  exhibition of the game if some of  the roughness which the Phoenix  team displayed had been left at  home. However, with all their  roughness the Greenwood team  handed it back done up in small  parcels and often.  At the close of the first half  the score stood 3 to 1 in Green-  wocd's favor, and at the finish it  showed the home team to be victorious by 4 to 2.  Phoenix may at one time have  been proud of her hockey team  but the team which played  against Greenwood last Wednesday evening was anything but  hockey players, not one spark of  knowledge of the game was displayed by them from start to  finish. Joe Stretzell, the bulley  of the Phoenix team, was quietly  -placed- away- in- th e-dressin gir oom.  in the middle of the last half,  and as one of the spectators remarked " It was worth the price  of admission to see him get what  he justly deserved." Stretzell  played a poor game, but tried to  make up for lack of knowledge by  slugging, and, as stated, was  handed a neat little parcel which  he could not carry, so it was necessary to help him off the ice.  In  the first   half Colton   and  Clark of Phoenix were ruled off j  for dirty playing,   but took their  places when  time  for the second  half was called.-  Any Greenwoodite who witnessed the the game could not  help but feel proud of the home  team for the clean and clever  game they played. If we. were to  praise one we must praise all, but  we must mention one, Leslie  Steel, who, for a young player  did some very clever goal shooting, and his game throughout  was praised by one and all.  There was only a fair attendance at the rink, and Manager  Williamhurst's exchequer will not  be very handsomely reimbursed  from the receipts.  Throughout the entire game  the puck was hurled around the  Phoenix goal, so in the last half,]  the Phoenix team having the  goal furtherest away from the  spectators it was impossible to  see most of the playing. Greenwood has enough enthusiastics  of skating and hockej' to "warrant I  a large rink being built, one  -with seats down one side if not i  both, so that when a game of  hockey or a carnival is held, for  those who cannot skate it would  be more comfortable and worth  one's while to attend these games,  especially for the ladies. The  ice was in splendid condition.  Iu conclusion we extend to  Phoenix our sympathy, and in-  v.te them to come again, but first  be fair, play more hockey aud we  will give you a right royal time.  ooo oooooooooo ooooo&ooooooo  0  1 A, LOGAN & Co,  Watchmakers  And ��.��.

BOUNDARY   OR^BK   TIMES.  p  o  Tlie hand that rocks the cradle  Is the hand that rules the land,  But the legthat wears the shin pad-  Is the leg now in demand.  a    9  Canada's national game of  hockey was rudely imposed upon  last Tuesday night, when a game  was pulled off at the Greenwood  skating rink between a picked  seven of the many lady hockey  players which Greenwood can  boast of, and seven from the  would-be hockey enthusiasts  among the men.  The game was called for at  eight o'clock, and about a quarter  past seven now and then one of  the fair sex could be seen wending  her way towards the battle  grounds, with hockey stick and  skates clanging on the sidewalk.  Sharp at a quarter to eight the  ladies had all arrived and iu a  few 'minutes had don<��d their  skates and shin pads, and with  almost nervous prostration awaited the arrival of that nobler being called man.  ��� Referee Master Lloyd Hunter,  prompt on time, called out "play  hockey" and a throng from both  dressing rooms began to pour out  on the ice. Referee Hunter,  somewhat  startled  by so sudden  au appearance of the two different teams, and wondering at the  same time, after taking a glance  at them, whether he would be  able to give a just decision or  not,   lined  them up as  follows:  Madames McLaine, Warren, Fair^  English; Misses Hay, Dickson,  Martin.  Messrs. Fair, Allison, Janion,  Burnside, Hodge, McMynn and  McLaine.       .  In accordance to a mutual  agreement between the teams  the men had to wear women's  dresses, thereby placing the men  at the same disadvantage as the  ladies. The game started, it was  like a Kansas cyclone��� fast and  furious. In- the first half the  .referee's Avork was not very tr}'-  ing, practically all he had to do  was to help untangle one or two  mixups, and rule Burnside off the  ice for tripping one of the young  ladies, causing her to fall. The  score stood at the end of the first  half 1-1., with the men winded,  and to look at the ladies }7ou  would have  thought   they were  just returning from an afternoon  tea having had a good laugh at  the expense of one of their own  sex.  Referee Hunter  decided to  allow only five minutes intermission,  as he could sec by rushing things  the liual outcome,   which  proved  to be only too correct.    He called  "play   hockey"   for   the   second  time,  and at it they went, beating one another with those nasty  little  clubs  as one of the ladies  afterwards called them,   tearing  dresses, and one poor fellow who,  we  won't   give  his  name,  got a  black eye.    At this point Referee  Hunter's troubles started.    W. G.  McMynn,   who   was   attired   in  what  some  would call a bridal  robe with a long train attached  to it, got the puck and started in  to make a circle for the goal, bttt  his   turns   were   too   short   and  quick,    almost   as  quick  as  the  eye could catch it he had four or  ���five tangled up in the train of his  dress, a bad mixup followed, and  Referee Hunter   was obliged to  order  McMynn  off the ice for a  short time to take a few reefs in  his skirt.  C. H. Fair was the next ruled  off the ice by the referee for being  too rough, and- C. II. went away  back and was seated. The referee had time and again g-iven  Janion warning about trying to  hug one of the young ladies every  time there was a mix-up, aud  finally had to send him back to  where C. II. Fair was. At this  point  the  ladies  scored another  goal within two minutes of the  end of the last half. The score  final!}' stood 2 to 1 iu favor of the  ladies.     The referee was called  all sorts of names by the men  when he was out of hearing of  the ladies, and, meanest of all,  was accused of being unfair.  <K>O-CW><X><><><X><>O<><>CM>O<>O-CK>0<>-0<>   OCKJOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO  SEVEN PROSPEROUS YEARS  The Condition of Canada Seven Years Ago, and  the Condition of Canada Today  The story of the seven years of fullness is succinctly told ia a poster  issued by the Liberal Association of Leduo, Alberta.    Here it is :  Seven years ago last Juiir the Conservative government was in  power. Today the Liberals are in power aud this is part of their record  for the seven years past:  Seven years ago our revenue was 3536,618,591; today it is $63,739,271,  or nearly twice as much.

The arrest  was r.made in Crown Prosecutor  Johnson's office at Regina. He  was brought there by a government detective from the west. He  is about 28 years of age.  Not Contraband of War,  Instructions have been received  by the C. P. R. freight and steamship departments that unless a  blockade of Japanese ports is  effected, flour, horse feed and  similar cargoes are not classed as  contraband of war. Large consignments of Manitoba wheat  went out on the Empress of China  last Monday. Five hundred tons  of barley will also be shipped.  This was stopped pending instructions.

The  potatoes were stored in pits in  the field and were shipped in a  refrigerator car. They arrived  there in fine condition. The fact  that these potatoes could be  stored in pits in the field and not  be frost bitten speaks volumes for  the climate. East of the Rockies  they would under similar circumstances have been so badly frozen  as to be useless. Although the  shipment was made from Midway  in a refrigerator car, provided  with stoves, the weather was so  mild that it was not necessary to  light the fires in the stoves.  ed Dan Bethune as the latter was  passing his house on the way to  his Avork. The bullet penetrated  the abdomen causing a painful  wound. The weapon used by  Wilson was a large 44 revolver.  Bethune was put on board the  Great Northern express and taken  to Grand Forks where he was  placed in the hospital under the  care of Dr. R. E. Northrop. Wilson, who is a brother of a prominent physician and senator of-  Washington state, gave himself  up to the authorities and was  taken to Republic to wait the result . of his victim's injuries, and  trial. The quarrel resulting in  the shooting was over Wilson's  sister-in-law.  Le Roi No. 2 All Right.  The annual reports of Le Roi  No. 2 company, Rossland, show a  satisfactory condition of affairs.

The Best Remedy for Croup  This is the season when the woman  who knows the best remedy for croup is  in demand in every neighborhood.  One of the most terrible things in the  world is to be awakened in the middle  of the night of the night by a whoop  from one of the children The croup  remedies are almost as sure to be lost  in case of croup, as a revolver is sure to  be lost in case of burglars. There used  to be an old fashioned remedy for  croup, known as hive syrup, but some  modern mothers say that Chamberlain's Cough Remedy is better, and  does not cost so much. It causes the  patient to "throw up the plegm"  quicker,   .       and gives relief  in        a shorter time.       Give  this remedy as soon as the croupy  cough appears and it will prevent the  attack. It never fails and is pleasant  and safe to take. For sale by J. L.  White Greenwood and A. F.

She complained of pains  in her chest and a bad cough. I gave  her Chamberlain's Cough Remedy ab~  cording to directions and in two days  she was well and able to go to school.  I have used this remedy in my fatrily  for the past seven years and have never  known it to fail," says James Prender-  gast, merchant, Annato Bay, Jamaica,  West India Islands. The pains in the  chest indicated an approaching attack  of pneumonia, which in this instance  was undoubtedly warded off by Chamberlain's Cough Remedy. It counteracts any tendency of a cold toward  pneumonia. For sale by J. Iy. White  Greenwood and A. F. Thomas Midway.

Tom Walsh, of the Kootenay hotel,  is somewhat of a wag.

The Greenwood city council held a  regular weekly meeting Monday night.  Not much business of importance transacted.  There were present Mayor Naden,  Aldermen Bunting, McNeil, Parker  and Caulfield.  A letter from the Boyd-Burns company, asking council to defer action in  the matter of lock-joint water pipie  until the company's representee arrived, was read and referred to chairman of waterworks committee.  The finance committee reported the  following accounts correct, which were  allowed.  Greenwood Electric Co  $11+ 25  E. G. Warren        7 00  Smith^fr McRae:^v.;7~::r" ���~~^r���500  G. H. Cropley      28 00  Russell-Law-Caulfield Co      1+ 00  The   City   Solicitur,   Engineer   and  Clerk were instructed to make application to the Lands and Works   commis  sioner for the right to locate the water  in Lind Creek for city purposes.  The sensation of the evening was  produced by an announcement in the  Provincial Gazette, which arrived here,  by Monday's mail, to the effect that  the government had turned down the  council's recommendation of Alderman  K. McKenzie and D. J. Sullivan for  Police commissioners; and Aldermen  Bunting and J. A. Crawford for  Licence commissioners, and Gazetted  in their stead, without the usual notification to the city clerk, Alderman  Parker and Jas. Sutherland- on the  Police CDmniission, and Aid McNeil  and E. G. Warren on the License  com mission.  The action of the government,  though peremtory, was probably in  conformity with the solicitations of  local supporters, foi what purpose, it  is difficult to surmise. It certainly  cannot change the loeal situation, except for the worse, because it has been  the cause of introducing new antagonism among the local adherents of the  government, which will weaken rather  than strengthen its hands here. It  does not appear that the change was  made at the request of the hotel men,  for it is claimed that a majority of  them supported Mayor Naden in the  recent city election, and Mr. Sutherland says his appointment was a complete surprise to himself, knowing  nothing whatever about the matter till  he saw the statement in the papers.  Mr. E. G. Warran, not caring to be  mixed up in matters pertaining to the  local licensing board, has it is understood sent his resignation   to  Victoria.  s $2 Year  g _ : THE AGENCY FOR  ^  esraan  g~i formerly held by PI.
