P. P., never had  a very high opinion of Richard McBride. Recent events have not tended  to improve that opinion. John has  the knack of saying what he thinks in  plain every day English, In the last  issue of the Tribune lie takes a shot at  McBride's lack of policy in connection  with the Eaat Kootenay coal lands.  During the campaign McBride was  silent regarding the policy of the gov  ernment on this important question,  but George Fraser, M. I'. P. for Grand  Forks riding, was elected because he  promised those interested in East  Kootenay coal lauds that McBride  would grant them their licenses.  After election Fraser asked that election goods be delivered aud he got the  following letter from McBride:  "The policy of the present govern  ment with regard tothe disposition of  these lands is to secure to all present  legal holders of any claims thereon  their statutory rights. We deem it  advisable not to take immediate action  along tlie;e lines, as we wish to avoid  any complications which might arise  by alleged clainis that maybe made on  behalf of the C, P. R., which we do not  recognize. We do not anticipate that  the Dominion government will attempt  to disallow -Chapter 8, Statutes 1903,  but it thought advisable to defer action  until the disallowance period shall  have .elapsed, which will'be about May  1, 1904. Immediately after this last  mentioned date we propose to deal  with the lands in questioned as though  the same had always been vacant  crown lands, and will then recognize  all valid, legal locations according 10  their priority, including- those now in  existence. We will not, however, assume the responsibility of deciding  conflicting clainis. [Signed] Richard  McBkide."  John Houston says: The letter  means nothing, but it satisfied the  member who drafted it, tricked the  ineuiber ~ to "wliofii" it"~was de 1 ivcred,  saved tlie McBride government from  defeat, aud flim-flammed the men who  have spent thousands of dollars iu trying to create industries in southeast  Kootenay.  He also says: The McBride government is not trustworthy, and the province will suffer in consequence.'  MUNICIPAL ELECTIONS  But Little Interest  Shown   in   the  Approaching Contest  It is understood that I. H. Hallett  and .1. A. Russell, retiring school  trustees, will not seek re-election.  Mayor Smailes, who is also a school  trustee, was elected to the latter  position for two years and has another  year to run, Trustees are elected at  the name lime as mayor and aldermen.  Any householder who is on the voters'  list is eligible for the otlicc of trustee.  The ladies are nut barred, and in some  other cities ladies are elected and  make \cry good trustees.  Nomination day is two weeks from  Monday nest and election the Thursday following. Although there are  already hot municipal tights in some  other towns, very little interesthas yet  beeu shown in Greenwood. Judging  by the experience of past years, however, if a light dues take place here it  will be an exceedingly warm one. No  candidates have yet announced themselves for any of the muuicipal   offices.  MINERS'   CHECKS   CASHED   HERE.  ���*^XK-"M��XK"XK��X~X-X~X~X"^  *.>���>.:��������.�����>  Badly Hurt  One day this week as Frank Johnston  in charge of otic of R. MeyerhofY's  freight teams was coining from Camp  McKinnev, he was thrown from the  wagon, dislocating his left shoulder  and receiving vaiious bruises. Or.  Spankie attended the injuries and Mr.  i Johnston will soon be able to go to  work again.���Midway Dispatch.  Eree Reading Room  The free reading room will be continued .luring the coining year. The  reading imuiii was organized by .the W.  C. T. I), smiie Ui ree years ago. It has  ln-eu freely patronized by men who  wanted to spend a quiet hour and read  the papers and mugaxiues. The W. C.  T. [". felt that they could no longer  continue the work. Last Saturday  evening a meeting of those interested  was called and it was decided to continue the room. A committee was selected as follow: Rev. W. A. Robins,  Mrs. Swayne and W. A. Frith from the  English church.' Rev. M. D. McKee,-  Mrs', I). Mcintosh and Geo. R. Naden  from the Presbyterian church and Rev.  J. IX -P. Knox, Mrs. Parker and B. F.  Fetch from the Methodist church,  and; three . from the Catholic  church to be selected. The committee  selected the following officers: Geo.  K. Nadeu president; Rev. W. A. Robins  secretary; W. A. Frith, treasurer. Revs:  Mcl\ije and Knox waited on the city  council bu Monday evening and asked  for a. continuation ofthe grant of SIS  per month given by the city in aid of  the reading room. The committee  staled that they expected to raise by  subscription $100 to secure the necessary literature and with the municipal  grant, the rooms will be continued.  The council reccohnuended the grant to  the incoming council.   '  Wrestling Match  At the Auditorium next Monday  night, George C. McLaughlin, champion of the Northwest, and Mike O'Neil  champion of eastern Canada, come together. The contest will be a hard  fought one is both of the men are there  with the goods. It is for $100 a side  aud the entire gate receipts. O'Neil's  admirers around Eholt aud Phoenix  are coming to a man to back him.  While Mac has many friends iu Greenwood. Dan Dean and Silent Kovvan  will also box, and several local celebre-  lies intend having a bout. It promises  to be a good night's sport.  Christmas Presents  It isn't the value of the Christmas  gift, but the mere remembrance that  makes Christinas a delight. A merry  holiday letter will do what a S10 gift  won't do. When a present can be  made, it should be. But the donor  should not strap himself for the purpose of sending extravagant presents  to his friends.  " Changed   Hands  Gilbert Gunderson has taken over the  St. Charles Hotel from C. Scott Galloway, and will hereafter conduct the  place. Mr. Gunderson has made many  changes to the building, and has renamed the place.the Victoria,  BRITAIN'S MERRY CHRISTMAS  Here's to Christmas at Dawsdii, near Santa Claus1  birth; :    - ' _'"���  To Christinas  in  Australia,   the   other  side   of  earth;  Here's to Christmas in South Africa, India too;  'Co Christmas in British Isles, and Cauada the true;  Here's to Christmas in B.

MORE   LOCALS  Monday was tile shortest day in the  year.  H. T. Pemberton has returned from  a business trip to Rossland.  Jim Smith, whor has been suffering  with inflammation in the eye, is improving rapidly.  --The presidentvsvice-presidehtseries  of curling matches will be played  Christmas day beginning at  9.30 a. m.  The citizens' band intend holding a  masquerade carnival at the rink on  Thursday, January 7. Get your face  ready for the occasion.  Thos. McDonnell, superintendent of  the Roderick Dhu in Long Lake camp  was in the city this week. There is  now a good sleigh road to the property  aud.shipments of high grade ore from  the mine will be commenced early iu  the year.  Last year a Phoenix lady hung up  her stocking for fun. But it turned out  very serious, for wheii Santa Clans saw  the size of the sox he die' not know  whether lo put iu a cottage piano or a  sewing machine, so he just dropped in  a Grand Forks town lot and now she  has to pay taxes on the lot.  J. J. Campbell of the Hall mine's  smelter was in the city this week.  J. D. Spence, of Clement <����� Spence,  barristers, Grand Forks, was in the  city on business this week.  Christinas night the Sunday school  scholars of the Methodist church will  present the beautiful cantata, "A story  of the star," in the church.  The^xhildren. ���of^jhe ���, Eresby teri an  Sunday school were greeted by Santa  Claus iu the Auditorium Wednesday  evening, There were presents for all  and the children returned the compliment by producing an interesting programme.  "Old man" Simpson of the Cranbrook Harold has published a Christmas edition. The old man says the  Herald is the best paper in the best  town in the best district in the best  province in Canada, aud the Christmas  edition goes a long way towards proving the statement.  At a meeting of the Greenwood Curling club held Monday evening the following club skips were elected: Warren, McMynn, dcV'eber, Birnie, Dill,  Gordon, Merritt, Russell, II. L. Johnston, Humphrey and Frith. The ice is  now in good shape aud several scratch  matches were played (luring the   week.  WILL TREY  UNITE ?  Two Amalgamations Likely  to Take Place  llllNINIIEl  Mother Lode. Snowshoe, Sunset and  . Dominion Copper  The coining year will lie one of  amalgamation so far as the Boundary  mines are concerned. There.is stili  nothing definite to report regarding  any of the big schemes which have  beeu rumored during the past year, but  the TimesWill venture the prediction  that duriug 1904 at least two important  consolidations will take place.  Negotiations, looking towards th-.:  amalgamation of the.'-B. C. Copper  company and the- Snowshoe company  are not broken off by any uieans. In  fact it is stated on fairly goodatttliority  that the amalgamation wili be ratified  at the annual meetings of the respective companies which are to.be held in  a few days. The B. C. Copper company-  wants the Snowshoe ore and the Snow-  shoe company wants to be in on the  smelter profits, so that with an amalgamation both interests will doubtless  be satisfied. The work at. the B.C.  Copper compauy's smelter is beinjj  rushed despite the cold weather, and  bv early spriug the capacity of tlie  smelter will not only be increased, but  the company will have its own converter plant as well.  The mysterious "Jim Breen," the  smelter king of the Northwest, is in  the east. He-has .been flying from  Toronto to Montreal, and from Montreal to Boston aud New York. He  did not travel alone. E. R. Wood ui  Toronto, secretary of several uJ Senator Cox's companies, including the -  Dominion Copper company, pointed  out the beauties of the St. Lawreuc;.  to the smelter magnate, and A. A.  Munroe showed him the siyhts in  Montreal and New York. These  jaunts were not entirely J'or pleasure.  Iu fact another amalgamation waa  being discussed, and in: all probability  the Montreal & Boston Copper company and the Dominion Copper com  pany will be made one in a few days,  -The Dominion Copper company ha*  thousands of tons of ore in sight but  no smelter; the Montreal & Boston  company a smelter, but very little ore;  hence the desirability of an amalgamation. The Dominion Copper com'  pany has anticipated tlie successful  outcome of the negotiations by having  the necessary spurs from the C. P. K,  laid preparatory to shipping from the  company's Stemwinder and Brooklyn  mines at Phoenix.  Welcomed Home  Last Friday evening a irimber of  citizens led by the band welcomed J.  R. Brown M. P. P. and bride at tlie.  Imperial hotel. ��� Mr. Brown made a.  neat little speech in which lie heartily  thanked the people of Greenwood for  their numerous expressions of good  will and for their enthusiastic welcome  to Mrs. Brown and himself.   ��� 'ji   <��*XMjt.x..x.<~x-'*<,,X~X"J^^^  ..:..;��-..-��.%������,  Boundary Ore  ���>��X'A  Granby Mines   Mother Lode   B.

There is after all  some system in the physical fea-;  tures. Nature has not attempted  the impossible- by xunning-  mountaius and valleys in different directions. The mountains  ;ire veritable treasure vaults and(  the valleys are exceedingly rich!  and productive. On the moun-l  tains are many men, demanding1'  the products-of the farm at ��� reasonable prices, and in the valleys  are many farmers, fruit growers  and cattle raisers who are without   a   fair    market    for    their  - produce.  The Boundary is a mining district. It is today one of the leading mining districts of the world.  The number of men employed in  mines and smelters is increasing  rapidly and at. the present rate of  development the Boundary will'.  soon be a populous district, as  well as the largest producer of  copper ores in the province. The  Boundary is a district ot rolling  hills. Here and there are  stretches of tillable land  but it  " would^eqinre a" peculiarly strong  local patriotism to make the  Boundary an important agricultural as well as a mining district  One hundred miles northward is  the Okanagan valley, that has  been well described as the Garden  of the Upper Country. It is a  great wheat raising valley and  the wheat is converted into first-"  class flour at local mills. It is  also a fruit raising district and  unquestionably .the best apples in  the province are grown along the  Okan agan lake. The Coldstream  ranch, five miles from Vernon,  owned by Lord Aberdeen, is an  object lesson in what can be done  in this rich district. At Kelowna,  farther down the lake, fruit, grain  and even tobacco are grown in  such abundance that the Kelowna  Shippers' Union was organized  for the purpose of securing  a profitable markel for their  produce.  The Okanagan Valley is about  100 miles from the Boundary by  thc most direct route. It is three  days' travel by a railway. To  reach this garden spot a Boundary  man must travel eastward 100  miles to Robson, take a steamer  to Arrowhead, ride on a railway  to Revelstoke where the main  line of the C. P. R. is reached,  and where the traveler is farther  away from Okanagan than when  lie started. He then travels  westward to Sicamous, and there  lakes the Shuswap & Okanagan  railway to Enderby or Armstrong  or Vernon���provided always that  he gets to Sicamous on the,right  day. The C. P. R. , has aoi yet  awakened to . the fact that . the  Okanagan county is of sufficient  importance to warrant a daily  train service .and a daily mail, so  there are certain days when there  are no passenger trains on the  Shuswap & Okanogan. The  journey is' one of three days; it  should be one of about five hours.  Let us get back to our original  proposition. Here we have a  mining camp with men wanting  everything, the soil. produces. A  little farther north,we. have a rich  valley capable of satisfying the  demands of the residents of the  mining district. With the  present circuitous system of  transportation the miner and the  farmer sCarcel}' know each other.  In the American Okanogan,  about an equal-distance from the  Boundary, conditions are- -similar  to those in the Canadian Okanagan. But the Yankee has a  wagon road into the ,,Boundary,  T-yhile ;the Canadian has hot. He  hauls, his fruit by wagon here,  pays-duty and reaches the market  at a lower cost than bis Canadian  cousin can reach the Boundary  market by railway.  'The Kettle river made a noble  effort through the West Fork and  its main stream to penetrate the  divide between the mining  Boundary and the agricultural  Okanagan; it almost succeeded.  The hills overlooking: i. these  streams are rich .���'-' in ��� mineral  w�� ilth;-their valleys are narrow  but would sustain a reasonably*-  large population, and there are  some splendid stretches of timber.  The West Fork district is only  awaiting transportation to make  it a producing mining camp, and  it lies between the Boundary and  the Okanagan.  ' It is surely apparent to every  one   who   has   even   a   general  Sore ;md swollen joints, sharp, shooting jiaiiis, torturing- muscles, no rest,  no siorp���that means rheumatism. It  is a stubborn disease to,,.fight, but  Chambei Uin's Pain Balm has conquered it thousands of times. One application gives relief. Try it. J. L.  While Greenwood and A. F.

Such a road  should be a paying investment  from the start. Some years ago  the doubting ones thought the  C. P. R. was taking big chances  building into the Boundary.  What! spend $5,000,000 in building' a road into a district that  hadn't a dividend paying mine ?  But the road was built and today  it is the biggest money making  ibranch the C. P. R. has. A railway between Midway and Vernon  will open up a rich new country  and will bring the produce of the  Okanogan with the market of the  Boundary. It will do more than  this; it will afford the most direct  route to the coast from the entire  Kootenay country. The Midway  & Vernon railway is an enterprise that has many attractive  features and which should command the serious attention of  capital. It is hoped that the  necessary capital will* be raised  and the road built at the earliest  possible date.

PROFIT IN COINAGE  Uncle Sam Makes Money on Some of  His Mint Products  The advocates of coin in preference  to paper money often declare that a  coin is always.just what it purports to  be. But it happens in practice that  the government loses money in coining-  gold,' though it makes a big profit in  coining pennies.  There is exactly $10 worth of: gold iu  a SlOgpld-piece, but 10 per cent of copper is put-in to harden the precious  metal, besides the cost of minting.  A piece of silver money is about half  profit, but the penny pays richly, as  theblanks.ire purchased at the rate of  $7300 a million���that is, the United  States obtains for 7 3-10 cents the.copper blanks which by the process of  stamping are transformed into SI  worth of pennies. The mint may not  have anything to do with flat money,  but it makes a dollar none the less, out  of that which is not worth a dollar.

The croup  remedies are almost as sure to be lost  iu case of croun, as a revolver is sure to  be lost in case of burglars. There used  to be au old fashioned remedy lor  croup, known a.s hive syrup, but some  modern mothers say that Chr.mbcr-  lain's Cough hYincdy i.s belter, and  does'not cos! no much. It causes the  patient to "throw up tlie plogui"  quicker, and gives reliof  iu a shorter time.        Give  this remedy as soon as tlie croupy  cough appears and it will prevent the  attack. II never fails and is pleasant  and safe to lake. Eor sale by J. L.  White Greenwood and A. K. Thomas  ���Midway.
