Lumber  It is not the Rossland of the palmy  days; but there are plenty of indications that it is still Rossland. The  jovial, jolly and hospitable citizens are  not as numerous as they were but there  are still some of the old guard who  strenuously strive to maintain the  reputation of the Golden City. They  are successful. Nomaiican.be taken  in hand by the Rossland delegation and  be amenable to their'numerous suggestions without returning home fully  convinced that Rossland hospitality  is.no mere tradition.  It is apparently a better uatured  Rossland than in days gone by, else  why does not its people rise and denounce the transportation companies?  We of the Boundary kick until we get  .what we want. When we wish toleave  Greenwood we travel in a luxuriously  furnished car supplied with all that  man can desire. For five or six hours  we live in a modern cafe ou wheels, but  after we get to Rpbsdh, Oh that awful  wait! There is nothing quite to heartbreaking in modern railroading. It is  the awful uncertainty. It may he one  hour; it-may be live." Providence and  the steamer captain alone Know; aiid  both-arc evidently not in speaking dis-  tance'juclging by the remarks which  are offered by weary passengers.'  After Robson is Iin ally left, the C P R.  train���not' loo clean ridrJpOiii'fortable, is  slowly hauled over a road built by one.  Fritz Augitste Heinze who never took  any sharper more numerous curves  tnan this road possesses. When Rossland is reached sometime about midnight or later, a first class compass  couldn't lind its way.  It is said that.a Rossland sport made  a wager that the C. P. R. train would  not reach Rossland on time one night  during the next six months. He won  the bet.  We will freely confess that we do  .UoLJtnpALUiy^lL^.^^Ji-t-Jh^Araiispor.tav.  tion business, but it never requires  much knowledge in formulating a criticism. It should be possible, however,  to give Rossland a train service that  wouldn't be entirely dependent ou the  beat and would enable the peopleof the  Boundary to reach there at a half decent hour. !  ���> MOVERS'   CHECKS   CASHED   HERE.  *��'  Bill that is another story. This article has to do with tne fifth annual  meeting of the Associated Boards of  Trade, Beo. R. Naden and the writer  were representatives from the Boundary but when Robson was was reached  Gee. O. Buchanan the sage of Kaslo  and president of the affiliated Boards:  John L. Retallack aud Mr. Cockle,  Kaslo detcgales were there waiting. No  man can pass Robron without waiting..  East, West, North anil South all must  wail and pay their respects to Ihe goddess of dilatoriness. There is an end  to finite things and Kossland was  reached. Next morning the Nelson  delegations arrived and the convention  was opened by G. O. Buchanan wlio  read a very interesting annual address  G. O. Buchanan has a   nasty   habit  of  v '  saying wliat he thinks and as he thinks  a great   deal he often says things that  are more truthful than pleasant.  Nelson is somewhat of an English  town and the Nelson delegates were  quite ready to give Joe a boost by jove-  His scheme (of which they apparently  knew little) was all right and should be  endosed by the Associated Boards.  This raised the ire of George Ratclifle  Naden. English to the core but descended from one of the families who  fought for free food under I'tilideti aud  Bright, he wasn't going to be stampeded now into encouraging a man who  wanted to give the English working  man a dearer loaf with a view to making the colonies a slaughter market for  the British manufacturers.  The president also spoke. He apparently took sardonic glee in demolishing  the arguments of the Josephiis but notwithstanding his speech rind those M'  others iu opppsitiou, the Chamberlain  idea, whatever it may be in detail,  pr.-v.nled.  The Associated Boardsof Trade without li. (.). Buchanan as president would  be like the play of Hamlet with the  slai\;oii a holiday, so G O. Buchanan  was made president I'or a third time.  Archie McKenzie of Rossland was  made secretary. Archie will have a  haiv! job keeping the pace set by the  president but his early Presbyterian  training will help him.  Ail this- happened on Wednesday.  Tuesday day and night was spent in  gelling to Rossland and Monday  ulglU���-.veil it was St. Andrew's uicht.  The condition of the delegates on Wednesday night after haggis on Monday  and 0. P. R. on Tuesday can very well  tie imagined. It can be taken as a pos  ilive statement of fact thai they were  not in a proper frame of mind to appreciate Damon and Pythias as exemplified by Harold Nelson and his clever  company. But a Rossland invitation  is never refused and to the show the  delegates w<=iit. Harold Nelson is always good and no more eloquent tribute could be paid to his ability than  that.the Scotmen had no desire to quae -  ter him that night. Scotsmen led by  the Grigor of Rossland exercised their  gifts of diplomacy aud they had Mr.  Nelson presiding at the piano while  they sang Loch Lomond and other  Scottish airs. The contrast between  Damon aud Pythias and the singing-of  the Scots was marked but the latter  were saved by his good natured grac-  iousness and Harold Nelson made a  few more warm friends.  ���' Thete was a banquet; as it was Rossland, that statement was scascely necessary. It was 11 p. m. before the  theatre was out but the hour doesn't  count iu Rossland; there must be a banquet. Good things lo eat, bright  speeches and clever songs were the bill  of fare.  Mining is a curious industry in many  ways. One of these curious ways was  shown to the delegates. -l-J.'M. Olaudot  iu manager for the Canadian Ore Concentrating compony. His company  has erected an odd looking building  about-two miles out-of Rossland. In  the building is an ordinary concentrating plant and below this plant are  six oily greasy looking tanks. These  tanks and their concomitants are what  is known as the Elmore Oil Process.  Mr. Elmore is a genius. A man who  can invent the right kind of a can to  put the cheapest kind of oil in and by  the combination make possible the  profitable operation of low grade mines  in-Kosflatid-and-other- camps-is-a-1- genius. Ths mill has been treating Le  Roi No. 2 ore. with marked success.  Tin- process requires oil of a certain kind. Cheap but not procurable  in Canada. There is a duly ou this oil  but to encourage a new industry it was  thought' the duty should be removed.  Of course the Canadian Ore Concentrating company held this opinion and  they hadn't much difficulty ia convincing the Assoeciated Boards that il  would be a good thing for the country  to have the cheapest possible oil for  mining. When they asked for free  milling machinery il was a different  however and the Associated Boards  turned a deaf ear to this request. The  discussion brought out some remarkable  views from grits and lories regarding  a proper tariff policy until, onedclegato  was moved to suggest that the Dominion   government  should    be  asked    to  frame  a  special   tariff-applicable   to 1  Kooienay alone. j  Thursday morning the 'lumber: men I  had tlieir  inning.    Lumber   is king in j  East Kootenay and there are .->otne .cm- j  bryo lumber kings iu   Nelson.    Rough i  lumber  is   ailinited   free  of ,iiuly "into j  this country aud the Eorwesters'soinb- j  tiinefa buy American rough timber and  sometimes American   niiir'iiieir-'brilijjj  iough timber into Canada aud.have  it  dressed ou Canadian soil.    The British  Columbia lumber men believe in   Canada for the Canadians aud   they   want  a duty on rough  lumber.    The .Northwest farmer doesn't want the duty but  Ihe Northwest farmer doesn't send delegates   to   the  Associated   Boards and  the resolution asking for the duty   was  passed,   notwithstanding   Uie fact that  some who had no lumber mills thought  the evil did uol lie in the  duty.    Lumber sold at the mills iu British   Colli in  bia for S12 costs S26 in the   Northwest.  The C.   P.  R,  aud  the  retail dealers'  trust are responsible.  These were the chief matters discussed. Another shot was taken at  the twoper cent tax, aid was asked for  a railway up the Kootenay valley, the  C. P. R. was ask-id to keep the Lardeau  branch running all winter and Ihe provincial mineralogist was told to waken  up.., The government was asked to  set aside certain public lands for school  purposes; a resolution was passed urging the appointment of a resident supreme court judge and Nelson was  chosen as the nexL place of meeting.  Some minor resolutions were also passed. The work af the Association was  completed on Thursday night.  A  ^  LIBERAL CONVENTION  To Be Held at Kamloops on Wednesday, January 13th.  In view uf the probability of an early  Dominion election a call has been  issued for a convention to nominate a  candidate in the Liberal interests in  the Yale-Cariboo district. The convention will be held al Kamloops on  January 13th. The provincial ridings  included in the Yale-Cariboo federal  district are as follows : Cariboo,  Lillooet, Yale, Kamloops, Okanogan,  Similkameen, Greenwood and Grand  Forks. At the convention one delegate  will be allowed for every fifty votes or  portion thereof cast at the recent provincial elections. Delegates are to  have credentials from tho'Liberal 'association having- jurisdiction over the  polling sub-divisions they represent,  or from the chairman and secretary of  ���I meeting of Liberals called lo elect  delegates where there are no Liberal  associations. Proxies shall be allowed but no delegate shall be entitled  to hold more than  live proxies.  Under these conditions and taking  the vote cast at the last provincial election inJ.<^con^id.eniti^  district is entitled lo Id delegates, as  follows: City of Greenwood, 7: Midway, 2; Boundary Falls, 2; Eholt, 2;  Rock Creek, 1; Deadwood, 1, and Oro  Denoro 1.  A meeting uf the Greenwood Liberals will be held tonight when delegates  will be appointed.  For good fresh candy go lo Munroe.  Wrestling Match.  I'n the wrestling match at Phoenix,  next Tuesday night, G. C McLaughlin  of this city, and Chris Mack of Phoenix, the former has agreed to throw  Mack three limes in an hour. Danny  Dean and Silent Rowan will liijhl '.in  rounds for a decision.  Don't miss the concert in the Auditorium next Tuesday night.  I  )  The Monthly Pay Roll Now  Reaches $40,000.  Tributary   to    Greenwood-Healthy  Effect on Town,  The monthly pay ndls of the Greenwood smelter, Mother Lode mine,  Boundary Falls smeller' Sunset mine  anil the high grade mines surrounding  Greenwood aggregate a grand total of  over 540,000 a mouth. Iii October the  B. C. Copper Company's pay roll alone  was over 322,000 and for November its  was331,750. Thepay roll a4 the Boundary Falls smelter is about SSU00 a.  month.  It can be taken for granted that ,a  district.having a pay roll of such proportions lias passed the speculative  siege. Greenwood and the Boundary  are no longer dependant uniontsidecapital. Its prosperity more largely de-  upon Ihe operation of its mines and  smelters.  The elfects of large aud regular pay  rolls in the prosperity of a city and district are hare to determine in all their  ramifications. For example, the mining and smelting industries provide, a  profitable market for farm produce.  This has led to the settlement of nearly all the available land along the Kettle River valley and oh Rock Creek hill  and "Anarchist 'mountain, A wonderful improveinont has beeu wrought in  three years in the farming settlements.  Before the developinentof the mines of  the mines of the Boundary but few  larmers tilled their soil or made any  special effort to raise produce simply  because there was no market. Today  it is different. The farmer has something' lo encourage him in making a  good farm ane there are now many of  them between here and Anarchist  mountain. Greenwood business men  appreciate the farming trade because it  is large,, satisfactory   aud   continually  growing. This growth is directly attributable lo the fact that the mines  and smelters employ a large number  of men who make a market for what  the farmer has to sell.  This is only one instance of how-  trade increases trade. Others might  be^metitionedr-^The^big-pay-rolI=has'"i  had its beneficent effect' on tile city.  To rent care's are no longer seen and  in the city and its thriving suburb  Anaconda all the houses excepting a.  few shacks are tilled with happy and  contented families. There i.s really no  poverty  in the district.  Of course, other camps besides these  surrounding Greenwood furnish their  quota of trade. What is still more encouraging, new properties are being-  opened up, Ihe mines and smelters are  enlarging the scope of their operations.  Greenwood has reached a new stage  in its history. The prospector was followed by the investor, the investor by  the railway builder and today the producer is king, The latter i.s the permanent stage. Slowly but sure'y the  city has been trying lo climb to the  commercial position it occupied when  railway contractors were expending  thousands of dollars each month in its  immediate vicinity. The mi in in it has  been reached. From now on there will  be no backward movement and Greenwood will surely become the largest  town in the Interior.  ?vvvvvvvwv;-v  ������>���:������>*���:������:���  ������:��� ������������>���:������>���.���  ���:������>*:������:������:���  W't��>��W��9W  '!���������������>^���������������������J*��i~i����x,c����>��>��;����;����>��>��><Jm>.Ji-4  Boundary Ore Shipments  *  :'  Granby  Mines   *:  Mother Lode   9  B.

It required the consideration of  au   important   measure like   the  Assessment act to demonstrate  that the Liberal party rendered  tlie party a great public service  in selecting good, men tor candidates in the recent provincial  contest. Unfortunately a number  ol' the best men went down to defeat but there were sufficient  elected to prove that good government can be secured through  the Liberal party. The session  has also demonstrated that the  Liberals made no mistake when  they elected J. A. McDonald  leader. He is easily the strongest man   in   the  house tdday. ,"-  A Victoria dispatch says: "But  Macdonald, leader of the opposition, is in a class by himself when  effective committee work is to be  done. In the few days in which  he has been in the house  he has sprung' to the front  with a rapidity which would  scarcely be credited among-  lliose who know his native modesty and reserve. Gifted with an  analytical mind, he scrutinizes  each section as it comes before  the committee and has pertinent  inquiries of the ministers habitually set those worthies in a state  of agitation   which   affords huge  ���aniusemeut-to-the-g-alleries.���The-  premier rare)3- measures swords  with him, but the attorney-general has more temerity, if less  discretion, and he is so repeatedly unhorsed that he evidently  has come to regard it as part of  Uie day's work. The administration is rapidly acquiring a reputation as weak vessels. Indecision, irresolution and ignorance  of the uature and effect of the  nature of their own measures are  amongst the minor sins for which  thev have to account.  The two socialist members also  are steering a course which will  not strengthen them in the  country. It commenced with a  declaration of Hawthornthwaite  that lie did not care what taxes  were imposed as long as they  were not increased on the class  of people whom beseems to think  he alone represents. Then followed his vote in favor of increasing the coal prospectors' license  fees, and his absence from the  chamber when the proposal to exempt agricultural lands to the extent of $2500 was under consideration. H is an open secret now  that the irovernment's rentunia-  tion of its power to increase the  poll tax was a direct concession  to the socialists, and was probably the price of their support."  Mr. Brown the Greenwood representative, is doing effective  work. Hi- speech in the debate  in ivpiy i" the ^-pet-ch from the  liirotie, '.va:, well received, and he  made a strong light against increasing the license fee to S100  for coal prospectors. He dwelt  on the disparity between this  course and that for ordinary  miners, and also mentioned that  the annual rental for (,>40 acres  was S% less than the government  proposd as a fee. Prospecting  for oil was very expensive owing  to the necessity of boring and he  felt that the effect of the excessive license fee would be to discourage real prospectors and encourage speculators.  Hawthornthwaite, Socialist,defended the government, and  Houston vigorously opposed placing an excessive tax on prospectors.  Mr. Brown also took up the  matter of the West Fork road  and asked the Chief Commissioner  the following questions :  1. The amount of money expended on the road commonly  known as the West Fork road,  situate in the Greenwood Mining-  Division, in the Similkameen  Riding, from the 15th of September, 1<J03, to date ?  2. Under whose supervision the  said money Avas expended?  3. Have the men employed on  said West Fork road, since the  15th of September, 1903, been  paid?  4. If not, why not?  The Hon. Mr. Green replied as  follows:  1. $2,305.53.  2. A. Megraw.  3. Instructions were given on  the 'Jth November last to pay the  men, and it is assumed that the  government agent at Fairview  has carried out these instructions.  Olsen Loses Go.  Tne Spokesman Review of Hiilurd.iy  hist says: "Join; Olsen, called "The  terrible Swede," was easy money for  McMillan last night in their wrestling  match at Swedish Brothers hall. Olsen  is big and strong-, but as clumsy as a  cow on ice. He secured the first fall  from McMillan in nine minutes. McMillan then threw Olsen in four initial esund again in three.  THE AUDITORIUM  ONE -NIGHT     ONLY-ONE  CHRISTMAS TRADE  Merchants report that the  Christmas trade is much better  than last year. The trade would  be largely improved if citizens  purchased goods atjhome" rather  than at Eaton's or Ryrie's. At  this season of the A_ear the post  oflice department does a larg'e  business :n supplying citizens all  over the county with attractive  looking catalogues telling of the  great bargains which can be secured in Eastern departmental  stores. The temptation lo purchase in response to eloquent appeals made through advertising  by the Eastern stores is great.  Trouble is taken to convince prospective customers that they have  just what is wanted at the right  price. It is safe to say that any  good housewife can go to a  Greenwood store and get  equally "good goods at equal  prices. The merchants themselves are to blame to some extent. They do not advertise sufficiently. They should remember  that their Eastern competitor is  continually advertising- their  wares while the local merchant  occasionally takes a space to help  out the local paper. This is a mistaken idea. Judicious advertising is just as important as any  other phase of his business.  Let Timothy Eaton or anv of the  other big firms who find customers all over the country discontinue advertising and their trade  is gone. Let the local merchants  give more attention to this important branch of their business  and thev will lind a marked increase in their sales.  Merely taking a space is not all  Schubert  Symphony  Club and  Lady  Quartette  OF CHICAGO.  CIGARS  TO BURN  Full Hue of the best Imported and  Domestic Clirars.

BARRISTER and SOLICITOR  Rendell Block, Greenwood, B.C  The Public School  To  the  Editor   Boundary   Creek  Times:���  Allow me space iu your columns to  say a few words regarding the management of the public schools of this city.  It is very important that we should  have the very best teachers available  to advance the children in education in  a satisfactory manner, To one not  familiar with this important work it is  difficult to conclude who is at fault if  the young do not advance as they  ought. Mufh dissatifaction was expressed at tho close of last term. The  teacher (pricipal) was responsible, at  least the influential citizens thought  so.    He resigned to go into business.  It seems to me that the " influential  citizens" have notions like old maids,  and listen to childish gossip, packed  around by .shallow minded people who  are ever rtady lo swallow the slightest  morsel of ridiculous yarns manufactured' by tlie children who have a spite  against their teacher, who, may it be  understood, punishes them for misbehaviour. This is evident to an observer who has had some little experience as a schoolboy, teacher, and au  ordinary citizen within the last ten  years.  All this "petition" business that has  been signed by the influential grannies  is the result of manufactured yarns by  spiteful children.  It is very surprising to me that  people don't know when they;have a  first class man as principal iu their  school.  A Citizen and Tax Payer.  Greenwood, Dec. 6, 1903.  Wakeful Children.  For a long time the two year child of  Mr. P. L. McPherson, 59 N. Tenth St.,  Harriburg, Pa., would sleep but two or  three hours in the early part of the  night, which made it very hard for her  parents. Her mother concluded that  the child had stomach trouble, aud  gave her half of one of Chamberlain's  Stomach and Liver Tablets, which  quieted her stomach and she slept the  whole night through. Two boxes of  these tablets have effected a permanent  cure and she is now well and strong.  For sale by J. L White and A. F.  Thomas Midway.  CHARLES AE. SHAW.
