The dinner,  including ,the haggis; the music, including the bagpipes, and the speeches,  including those not fired by Scottish  sentiment, were all. worthy of the  great occasion. .President C. Scott  Galloway presided and seated with him  around the banqueting table were the-  following:  His Honor Judge Leamy, Duncan  Ross, J. P. Myers-Gray, W. C Dalglish,  K. B. Munroe. H. W. Falconer, H. C.  Shaw, C. Scott Galloway, John A.  Crawford, W..'G. McMynn, W. M. Law,  ���Hi A. Munro, G. C. McLaugh'in, D.  D. McLaren, Frederic W. McLaine,  Dr. G. M. Foster, L. Bruce Hodge, D.

E. Hyde,  J<ihn Tail, Robert-Somerville, David  Anderson, K. C. Morrison, and J. Rae  Miller.  Tlie hest aiid hostess were possessed  of the hospitality ofLtthe. genuine  Scotch. Billy even tried to cultivate  the Scottishb-rr, but was no.t so successful iu this respect as in providing  a genuine chieftain of the puddiu'  race and serving it in Tain :o' Shanter  style. : The caird of guid things, from  the wee taist to begin wi to the nits  aud raisins included sufficient to satisfy  the epicure.    Below is the menu:  THE   DINNER  responses came from his luaor Judge  Leamy who claimed that Scots were  children of the Irish and that the latter  sliuuld be proud of llieir descendants.  Duncan Ross also responded and  claimed that the Irisriincn were descended from Scots who had wr.lkcd  across to the Emerald Isle. No decision  was arrived at.  W. Allison proposed the Land o'  Cakes, and C. Scott Galloway and J. S.  Birnie responded.  Duncan Mcintosh aud Scott McRae  extolled the virtues of the Land We  Live lu, as did also \V. M. Law, who  spok': of the remarkable progress made  by Canada in the last few years.  The Press was defcuded by Barrister  Gray and E. H. Hyde, both of whom  wanted to couple this toast with the  Ladies, but J. A. Crawford and J. Rae  Miller did full and complete justice to  the latter toast.  ��� A toast to Phoenix was enthusiastically druak and Alex Greig responded.  Absent Friends concluded the list.  It was a night of song. Possibly in  116'small city on the continent is there  a stronger aggregation of Scottish  singers than right here in Greenwood,  and their numbers are increasing.  W. . A. Dalglish's sweet and well  trained tenor voice was heard for the  first time. . His songs were well chosen  and well sung. It is a voice worthy of  a'larger audienceand one which should  bc-hcard oftener.  ���; Every member of Clan Galloway is  evident a singer. The old., reliable C.  Scott does not appear to grow old. His  voice is firm and true as of yore, and  his namesake from Phoenix is no discredit to the singing family. The piper  has a voice too and he was heard in two  or three lattling good songs.  '. Messrs. McMynn, McLaren, Hodge,  Bannerman, Birnie, Tait, Somerville  and Miller contributed to the program,  while Mr. Hodge danced the Highland  fling and sword dance to the music of  the pipes. J. W. Nelson sang the only  song he knows���The Irish Immigant.  About 2 o'clock Auld Laug Syne was  sung and none had sairly lamed themsel.  when it was a daily, are now working  in different parts of this grand Old  earth.

The Granby Consolidated Mining,  Smelting and Power company are  going to ttmuel the mountain from  Boundary creek to Phoenix and are  going to erect large smelting and refining works near the portal of th?.  tunnel. In this issue of the Times is  a notice from D. Whiteside, solicitor  for the company, of an application  which will be made to the legislature  to enlarge the scope of the company's  power to enable it to carry out the huge  undertaking.  The tunnel scheme is not a new one  in Greenwood. It has been reported  on by eminent engineers and its feasibility has never been doubted by those  who inquired into the merits of the  project. A large amount of capital  will be required, and this was hot eas7  to secure until it was fully demonstrated that Phoenix ore could be  treated at a profit.  Now that thq Granby company has  declared a dividend and announces  that a similar dividend will be paid  every three months it will be a much  easier matter'to secure the required  capital. A few years ago L. M. Rice,  who was the engineer in charge of the  construtcion'.'of the C. &'W. railway,  took considerable interest iu the  scheme. He stated that there were no  insurmountable engineering difficulties in connection therewith. The  great essential is suffi;ietil capital.  That Jay P. Graves and his company  can finance the scheme there is no  reason to. doubt.  The advantages to the Granby company when the tunnel is completed ia  simply incalculable. Thecompany Iuh  demonstrated that it can mine ana  treat ore at a profit when its output if,  less than 2000 tons a day. Its profit  will be much larger when tha'. output  is doubled or trebled. Today the company is paying transportation rates for  hauling its ore about 25 miles to tlie  smelter���at-Grand^Forksr^-Th rough am  tunnel the ore can'reach a smelter site  in less than three miles. The saving  in transportation charges alone will, if  the output is 5000 tons daily, amount to  S1000 a day.  Although no announcement was  made by the company there was a  strong suspicion that such a project  was being considered by the company.  For some months the Granby company  has beeu purchasing claims above ami  ambiguous to the proposed route oi  the tunnel. It will in all probability  be started at a point on ICholt creek  above Hall's ranch, about four mile-  above Greenwood, and run in a dirccf  line to the Grauby mines at Phoenix.  The length of the tunnel will be less  than two miles, possibly not more than  2000   yards.

The system of open  quarries is the cheapest method  of mining in the world, but the  system can apply only to what  might lie termed surface ore.  When the quarries attain depth  the expense of hoisting" the ore  must be taken into consideration.  The Granby company has an  enormous tonnage which can be  mined bj' quarrying, but the only  practical method of deep mining  without expensive hoisting- is by  a tunnel through which the' ore  can be cheaply handled and  hauled to the smelter. The  Granby management is nothing  if not practical. The cost of the  tunnel will be large, but not beyond the limit of a fifteen million  dollar company which has  already demonstrated- that its  mines can be operated at a profit.  The tunnel scheme only confirms the pretty well recognized  fact that Greenwood is the centre  <>f the Boundary. The ores  naturally gravitate to Boundary  creek and it is the natural smelter  center of the district. When the  tunnel becomes an established  "lTictTTT"Fenwood~wiireasiry:be~tKe  largest city in the interior.-  HIS FIRST TALK  Liberal leader Macdonald made  his maiden speech in the provincial house Monday and created  a. remarkably good impression.  His manner throughout was  marked by more reserve than is  usual���a reserve which is accounted for by the dual reasons  of his own modesty and his inexperience. He spoke briefly,  adopting a cautious line of offering his criticisms, without advancing many suggestions, notwithstanding several anxious attempts  by McBride and others to draw  him out. lie sharply criticized  McBride's retention of the two  per cent tax, notwithstanding  Conservative promises of its repeal. He also confessed to distrust of the administration because of its small majorit}- and  took the premier sharply to task-  re the Fernie matter.  At all the leading stock exhibitions in the United States for a  number of years Canadian slock  exhibitors have carried off nine-  tcnths of the prizes. This has  made the Yanks mad; and Canadian sheep, horses and cattle are  not to he allowed to compete at  the St. Louis world's fair. For  ways that are dark and tricks  that are mean the Yankee exhibitor is peculiar.  Bob Macpherson, M. P. for  Burrard, announced at the coast  a few days since that the all-  Canadian road to Dawson city  will be built without loss of time,  the project to be backed by the  dominion government. The  government, he said, has readily  recognized the necessity ior a  means of access and transportation to Dawson from the coast  which shall be free from United  States influence or domination.  The latest dividend declared by  the Standard Oil company is 12  per cent, or. $12,000,000, in its  capitalization of $100,000,000.  Of this John D. Rockefeller will  receive ��4,800,000, and his brother  Bill $2,400,000. As this is a decrease from the last, dividend,  poor Rocky will have to raise the  price of oil.  We wish some of our tariff contemporaries would condescend to  explain why the. United States  has not been saved from shut  downs, Avage cuttings and other  incidents of a period of depression  by the Dingky-tariff.  The Turkish, landlord in Macedonia gets half the farmer produces.��� New Westminster Columbian. That's nothing. The  laborer in this country only gets  one-one hundreths of what he  produces.  In. the house Tuesday attorney-  general Wilson used a meat axe  on John Houston, and cut him  out of the government ranks.  But John is pretty much alive yet.  John Houston has had his say  indhe house and the parliament  buildings are intact, tor he did  not throw a very large bomb into  the enemies quarters.  -=.Mrs. -, Titus -says^that^no^Socialists are taxpayers because when  the}' become possessed of property  they cease to be Socialists.  M. P. P. does not necessarily  stand for Member Provincial  Parliament. It also stands for  Mighty Poor Politician.  The countn-'s prosperity is on  a solid basis. The way to keep  it there is to keep the Liberals  in power.  A fool's cap is admired in  society. -^-Vancouver Province.  The editor of the Province ought  to know.  Spent Over $2000 Doctoring  Mr. Joseph Pominville of Stillwater,  Minn., after having spent over $2000  wilh the best doctors for stomach  trouble, without relief, was advised to  try a bos of Chamberlain's Stomach  and Liver Tablets. He did so and is a  well man today. ITor sale by J. L.  White. Greenwood, and A. F. Thomas,  Midway.  Business seems to be picking up  at Fernie. At present there are  24 inmates in the city jail.  There is much grafting going  on -in this province besides that  employed in the orchards.  It looks as if Uncie Psalm's  soldiers in Colorado were a gang  of hired assassins.  The latest from Victoria is  that McBride is still premier.  This is official.  The miners' strike is unchanged  this week.    It is still in Colorado?  The   only   stable   tariff   is   a  moderate tariff.  The recent increase in the use of  platinum has created a strong demand  for this metal. It is now as valuable  as gold.  No Dinglev tariff for Canada.  A Timely Sujrjrestion.  This is the season of the year when  the prudent and careful housewife replenishes her supply of Chamberlain's  Cough Remedy. It is certain lo be  needed before the winter i.s over, and  results are much more prompt and satisfactory when it is kept at hand and  given as soon as the cold is contracted  and before it has become settled in the  system. In almost every instance a  cold may be warded off by taking- this  remedy freely as soon as the first indication of the cold appears. There is no  danger in giving it to children for it  contains no harmful substance. It is  pleasant to take���both andults and  children like it. Buy it and you will  get the best. It always cures.

PLATINUM  Iridium and Other Exceedingly Rare  Metals May Be Saved  Mine owners of Rossland and the  Burn tBasin'districtare trying-to ~ save"  the rare metals. The complex ores of  Rossland district carry values in molybdenum, platinum, iridum, osium and  one or two other exceedingly rare and  valuable metals. Heretofore these  values have been thrown away as no  smelters within reach were capable ot  handling tbe ore so as to save the  metal-... Recently the matter has been  receiving considerable attention. The  Giant company is the first Rossland  corporation to take hold of the problem  seriously. Ferdinand Dietzsch. an Associate of the Royal School of Mines,  has been employed to give the matter  careful study and see what can be done.  Two tons of Giant ore will be shipped  lo him iu London, where experiments  will be made during the winter. Mr.  Dietzsch is recognised as an authority  on the treatment of complex ores.  Another mine on which an effort ivill  be made lo save the rarer metals is the  Contact, iu Burnt Basin, a section of  the Rossland camp. A number of tests  conducted in England to date have satisfied the management of the mines  that platinum exists in the ore in commercial quantities, the results secured  to date indicating an average of a  quarter of an ounce of platinum per  ton of crude ore. Within the platinum  are iridium and osium, rarer metals,  and it is hoped tint a system of treatment at the mine can be devised whereby these precious metals can be utilized.  The Contact possesses a strong lead of  ore running 510 to SIS in gold and silver and is a valuable concentrating  proposition, irrespective of the presence  iu the ore of the platinum metals.  A one-eighth interest in the big  showing, ou Goal Mountain, near Camborne was sold lust week for $3,000.  The property has a remarkable  showing.

WILL RON A TUNNEL  I.U--intiiiucd (nun paste one.]  Hi ��� id-jva'tioii at the mouth of 1he tunnel and the surface of the Granby  mines i.s over 2 100 feet, Ao that the ore  bodies will be tapped by the tunnel at  this depth.  The tunnel in itself is a big project  which will give employment to hundreds of m'.tiers, but more important  from a Greenwood point of view is the  fact'that near the mouth of the tunnel  will be erected a large smelter for the  treatment of the ore hauled over the  tramway which will run through the  tunnel. The Grand Forks smelter and  converter plant will ho continued as  there will be sullidcnl ore from the  glory holes to keep these plants running. But the greatercjuiput will come  through the tunnel.  There are one or two smelter sites  contiguous to the portal of the proposed  tuiuel. One of these is situated al the  mouth of Eholt creek about one mile  above the city.  jgs. ��:&:#S&:&S;��;&segi  i -a  W  11-  ���A-  ���<V  \\  ii  ii  ���lu  ������6  v  ii  Better Than a Plaster  A piece of flannel dampened with  Chamberlain's Pain Balm and bound  to ihe afflicted parts is superior to any  piaster.
