In his experience, tlie successful mining- mail was tlie man with  faith, the optimistic man���not foolishly optimistic but at optimism tempered  with-, good judgment. There is every  good reason for hope in the Boundary.  The men who invested their money in  mines and smelters did not do so without knowing- exactly what they were  doing. The rapid development going  on was a thorough warrant for a successful future. After again thanking  them for their kind treatment Mr.  Parrish sat down amid loud applause.  W, T. Hunter also paid his tribute to  Mr. Parrish. He said that the business men genuinely 'regretted his  departure. He was always courteous  and always a gentlemen. He was respected by all the men and admired by  all the ladies and nothing further  could be said.  \ There was no formal toast list but  nevertheless some excellent speeches  were made. Frederic Keffer, manager  of the B. C. Copper company, spoke in  a decidedly hopeful way. *'I have  been seven years in the Boundary" he  said. "I have never lost faith and I  have greater faith today than ever!  before. We are going to have success  and it is going to be sure and per-  menent." He felt sure that the Le  Roi company had made no mistake.  If aryone could make the Le Roi a  dividend payer, it was Mr. Parrish.  He referred briefly to the mining progress in the Boundary and said mining and smelting could be carried on  cheaper here than any place in the  world.  Capt.  Henry   Johns of  the Sunset,  congratulated   Rossland   and   the  Le  Roi upon securing the greatest treasure  that ever came out of the Boundary.  . Rey,   Mr,   Grabatn'is a-capital after  dinner  speaker.    For 'fifteen  minutes  he  kept  tip a running fire of wit.     He  also   said, that   next   to   Greenwood,  Nelson  rejoiced  in  Mr.   Parrish's appointment. ���    He    had    many   warm  fiiends in  Nelson, who  believed that  the Le; Roi hadisecured  the right man.  Albert I Goodell, superintendent of  the; Sunset smelter  was in Leadville,  Colorado, when Mr. Parrish left there.  There was as much  genuine regret expressed  then  at  Mr. Parrish's departure,    as    was    shown   in Greenwood.  Mr. Goodell said he came to the Boundary  somewhat of  a  pessimist  but. he I  ivas rapidly   enthusing  and doing his  .best to"-.make -the"Bbundary~cbuhtr"y"ir  success.  Mayor Smailes, Aid. Ross and H. F.  Mytton spoke regarding, the City of  Greenwood. Mayor Smailes referred  to the two years of trying times but  there were less failures and business  men retained the confidence and admiration of the wholesalers. Things  were changing. Good times were  coming and he asked for a long and  strong pull together in the interests of  the town.  J. W. Astly superintendent of the  Snowshoe, briefly referred to tl.e progress of the mining industry. It was  yet in its infancy in the Boundary but  there was every hope for the future.  G.

Practical  ��� ��� S. F. Parrish has the  happy faculty,  of making''warm friends  wherever  he  ���goes.     At  the  banquet   given   in   his  ���'honor   at   the   Hotel    Armstrong   on  Saturday evening last, men who were  .with  him   in   Colorado   spoke, of;'the  genuine'regret expressed  by  all   his  acquaintances  when   he   left  therefor  ��� the Boundary and the." Boundary   paid  an  equally   warm   tribute   through its  business,   financial  and   mining men,  and also through  a spokesman  for the  men  employed under him for the last  'three years.     All  were sorry   to lose  Mr.  Parrish,  but all  were equal sure  that   his   appointment   was    a    good  thing for Rossland and the mining industry generall3'.   If any man can pull  /the Le Roi out of the hole and make it  pay   dividends    that    man is   S.   F.  Parrish.  Thirty-six  guests   sat   down  at the  banquetting table.     E. J. Wilson presided and at his right was the guest of  honor   Mayor-elect   Smailes   occupied  the vice-chair and' sealed around them  were :   J. R. Brown, Dr. J. E. Spankie, j  R. H.

He  said that Mr. Parrish was going to fill  a''."most difficult position but no man  was more capable. No better compli-.l  ment could be paid a mining ma i than  the management of the Le Roi.  ���' F. J. Finucane paid an eloquent  tribute to Mr. Parrish's abilities as a  mining man and-fine qualities as;a  citizen. It was the something in him  that won him the highest position in  the province' to-day. It was gratifying that a Boundary man, a warm  friend of the Boundary was going to  manage the Le Roi. Rossland had  reached its apex, Boundary is -on the  ascendant. Rossland had the biggest  mine in the province, but the Boundary had the biggest unmade mines in  the world. He felt sure that Mr.  Parrish would.be successful at fhc L��  Roi and reflect glory on the district he  came from. ;The toast was enthusiasti-  caiy received and fiir Parrish was warm  lyapplauded upon rising to respond. He  was visibly affected by . the splendid  tribute to his own personal qualities  Mr.- Ifarrish thanked them most  sincerely for the such a demonstration  of good .fellowship. He said that he  sonld never forget the pleasant delightful social relationship that existed  between the people of Greenwood and  himself since he came to this district  three years ago. In business and soc-  ialmattershe had nothing but the high  est praise to accord the people of  Greenwood. He was glad that he was  not leaving the district for good but  hoped to be with them again quite frequently. The Boundary district would  always be close to his heart.     ..:.    .... .

Every  time the mines and smelters  begin   to  run smoothly and make money,  Providence   or   James   H.     Tonkin     intervenes.    A        strike        is       ordered.  The men quit work,   mines and  coke  ovens are  closed  and'the mining and  smelting industry brought to a   standstill    Without a moment's notice, a telegram from from Mr.  Tonkin,   manager for the Crow's Nest Pass Coal company, to the manager of local smelters,  conveys the doleful news that the  men  were again nut on-strike While thejout-  side received but faint.rumours of the  demon of unrest which  held sway in  coal town, those on the inside expected  someting to happen.   So far as can  be  learned, the men have had many grievances since they entered into a tentative agreement with  the  management  last fall. Incipient strikes took place at  Morrissey   and  Michel  and  men  and  manager were generally in hot water.  According.  to     themen     the     disturbing   element    in    Fernie    is   one  Jas.   H.    Tonkin     manager    of    the  company.    He receiver} his..training in  Pennsylvania coal mines where labor  conditions are probably worse than  in  any  other   portion   of   the   habitable  globe.    Mr. Tonkin  is  apparently  labouring tinder the  hallucination  that  he is still in anthracite coal regions in  the Quaker state.    Until he is there in  ihe flesh it is not expected that peace  will reign in Fernie.    The  men  claim  thai Mr. Tonkin has his favorites  who  have fat contracts and are able to earn  $10 to $12 a day.   The great body of  the :men   sniffer-: in   consequence  as- a  proper average wage must be maintained in the interests of the company.  Some of them cannot make a dollar a  day.while^others^by.persistent hustling-  manage to make $1 50.   Now even .the  latter wage does not insure necessary  comforts particularly if the coal miner  has the temerity to indulge in the luxury of a wife and a rapidly  increasing  family. . So the  men  at  Fernie  Morrissey and Michel got together and discussed  the situation.    The  drafted  a  schedule   of  wage  wnich  they  would  like to see adipted at all  the  mines  of  the company and appointed a committee to interview Mr.  Tonkin   and  dis  cuss this schedule with him.    The committee asked for an interview  on   Friday.    Mr.  Tonkin refused, to receive  any committee from the men and trotted    out   the   old  subterfuge Jthat  if  any men'had any grievances he   would  hear them individually.  This did not suit  the  men,  so they  the strike lasts far some time local smelters will be compelled to close down.  .Should they again close down something is going to happen.  A smelter man discussing the situation said: "I have no authority to  speak for the other smelters but I feel  that if the smelters are compelled to  close dowrifwill not open up iu a hurry  even if the strike is settled. The men  behind the smelters are getting tired  of these strikes and other obstacles to  progress, and they will want to definitely know where they are at before  they begin again. All the smelters  have arranged for increased furnaces  and refining plants. The Granby company announced that a dividend ought  to be expected this year. How can a  dividend be paid if their smelter is  closed down because of the Fernie  strike? What assurance is there that  if this strike is settled another one will  not take place in a few months? It  strikes me that Mr. Tonkin is Ihe right  man in the wrong place. Unless the  Crow.s Nest Pass Coal company can  give definite assurances that its men  and its manager can be controlled' then  before the mining and smelting industries can flourish a sure and certain  source of fuel must be secured."  Xi.i.lLJM  LD  Rock Creek Measures Secured by Ashnola Co  Good Quality of Coaking Coal���Ma  Build Railway  Fernie, B. C. Feb. 12.���(Special to  the Times.)���The strike was inaugurated here on February 11th. After a  futile effort to obtaiman interview with  the management of the Crow's Nest  Pass Coal company for the purpose of  adjusting the wage scale and other  grievences.  Everytime the district union tried to  obtain an audience with the management they were entirely ignored. The  situation stands at present : The  mines and coke ovens at Fernie, Mor-  Irissey and Michel are- tied up Ttight.'  The management has not yet signified  tneir willingness to meet the district  union. The general sentiment of the  the public is yery stn.ngly in favour  of the Miners.        John J. Davies,  Sec'y district union No. 7.  Duncan Mcintosh, who is now managing the Providence mine, adjoining  Greenwood townsite, is in town today  in connection with a case pending before the supreme court. Speaking of  the Providence Mr. Mcintosh said he  was more than satisfied with the way  this property was developing A staff  of-men is-now employed'andabout two  carloads of ore a month is being shipped to the Trail smelter. The ore runs  about $130 to the ton, the chief value  being in silver. "The Providence is a  dandy," said the manager, "and if the  vein widens out a little more as we go  along we shall do very well. I am  very well pleased indeed with the way  the ore is coming in and the values  got/'  I). R. Young managing director of  the Ashnola Smelter Ltd., has purchased through Mayor Smaileis the  Rock Creek Coal measures owned by  Robert Wood & Co. A substantial  cash payment was made. The coal  lands comprise 640 acres. They are  situated immediately above the mouth  of Rock Creek about 21 miles from  Greenwood. A crown grant for the  property was secured by Bohert Wood  in 1896. Some development work in  the shape of shafts and crosscuts was  carried out. At one point there is 4  feet of solid coal. The coal has been  analyzed several times by smelter ex-  derts who pronounce it a good quality  of coking coal. Should the Ashnola  Smelter Ltd. carry out contemplated  arrangements the property will be developed and coke ovens erected.  It is understood that the same company has purchased the Midway &  Vernon Railway charter and that at  least the twelve miles of the road from  Midway to Rock Creek will be constructed to afford means of communic  ation*to the-Bouudary smelters.  PRESENTATION  Mrs Viunie McCray died suddenly at  the Spokane hoiel, Midway, Tuesday  evening. She was born at Leavpn-  worth, Kansas, and was 33 years of  age. The deceased was a sister of Mrs  Joe Villandree of this city. The funer  Bl takes place this afternoon from  Gulley's undertaking parlors.

The affair  was held in the School house and about  seventy friends and acquaintances  were present. Dancing was begun at  at 8 o'clock and lasted until four in the  morning. A few minutes before lunch  time Mr,.WilberU asked-the-attention -  of those present and in a few well  chosen words expla-.ned why they had  been invited to meet on this occasion.  He said it was to show their regret at  the departure of Mrs. Sorenson and  family from our midst and asked Mrs.  Sorenson to accpt as a token of remembrance from her friends a beautiful  silver butter dish. The party was  then invited over to Mrs. Lowery's  where under the supervision of Mrs.  Lowery and Mrs. Jensen a most appetizing supper was serven. Mr. Sorenson aud familyjhave been residents  of Greenwood for the past two years.  Mr. Sorenson who is master mechanic  at the Greenwood smelter expects to  join his family in the near future.  J. C. Haas M. E. left for Spokanf on  Tuesday last. While here he arranged  to start work on the Golcondu jfroup in  Smith's camp Two men will be employed at first but the force will be increased in a short time. Mr Haas  recently spent several months in the  east and while there saw Hon. Geo K.  Foster who is interested in the Golcon-  da group and arranged with him for  resumption of work. Considerable  work was done on the Golconda a few  years ago.  Pam Johnson, M. E., retires from  the superin tendency of the B. C. Copper company's smelter on the 26th  inst.

His contract expired at the end of  three years but waa continued month  by month since August last until the  present. The company has not  announced his successor.  vet  Po you use I5UC Ribtj'.n   Tt>n ? THE   BOUtt )AY CREEK   TIMES  '~^k  " ". AA  Til  :  1.  -.Tl  S'l  nr.sic^  ;s  IX  l.ni'O!

Man)' think it unnecessary  to devote particular attention to the teeth until the  appearance of the mouth is  affected by damaged, decayed or broken teeth. Others  give the teeth no attention  till pain compels them.  The stupidity and shortsightedness of either policy is  evident.  Everyone who thinks a  moment on the subject knows  that food cannot be masticated  satisfactorily if one or more teeth  are tender, inflamed, decaj'ed, or  othervise out of working1 order;  and if this be the case, the mouth  requires immediate attention.

Kirkwood is not without courage else he would hesitate before introducing a by-law to pay'''he mayor  and aldermen. . Citizens who have  been in tlie hnbit of getting something for nothing are not anxious that  the pr.-ctice should be distti.bed. It is  d.flicull to u .;.U:rsta.nd ���1iv seven  ordinarily sane men .slior.'d r,i'':��r.times  struggle to have the opportunity of  doing a lot of hard work for seventeen  hundred of their fellow citizens without emolument or reward of any ,'ciiid.  But hu 111:1 n nature is human nature  the world .over. No one can dispute  the fact tha t the mayor and aldermen  should reeeive reasonable compensation for .their services. Whether the  city can aff >rd lo pay is another matter, The truth i.s that in British Columbia towns are iu too much of a hurry  to iret incorporated and take on city  airs without having- the wherewithal  to maintain them. It is absolutely unfair however that the mayor particularly should be expected to give a lot of  time to the city and dig- down in li is  "pocket   for"'"iim^^  mi.de upon him in connection with nis  office. It is -equally unfair to expect  alder.nen to spend much of th-dr time  in the service of the city without compensation.  Under au amendment to the  municipal clauses act passed last year  such matters may be referred to the  electors at the time of the annual  election. It would have been better  had advantage been taken of the referendum.  THIC KICKNIK STRIKE.  The .-.trike at Kcrnie. if continued  will again mean the complete closing  down of the liritish Columbia smelters.  While some of the smellers have a  sum 11 coke reserve they are absolutely  without the coal necessary to run their  plants. In the absence of full particulars, it >s difficult to place the respou-  sibilitv for this strike. It matters not  who is to blame, the bald facts stand  out that it i.> within the power of the  Coal company's management or its  employees to bring the mining and  smelting industry to a complete standstill. Surely these industries are of  sufficient importance to demand s-jcli  legislation or action as will insure :i  reasonably regular supply of fuel. So  long as one company has a monopoly  of the business and >,.> long as its management ha-, the nasi y  habit,   wilfully  Bachelor Headauarters at Deadwood  Invaded by Fair Sex  There was great excitement at Dead-  wood last Friday night over a most unusual occurrence.    Among other members of that community is C. Scott McRae, an old time trapper and prospector  well-known throughout  the  Boundary  country.    In   the   mountains   he   has  long been hardy  and  adventurous,  so  much that, with a brother,  he  discovered   the  McRae Pass,   which  proved  for the Columbia & Western a  practicable   route   for  its railway  from  the  Columbia   River   into   the Boundary.  But though nervy  and  very   much  at  home in the mountains, whether trapping, exploring  or prospesting,  Scott  has always lost his nerve when it came  tothe que.'    on of  quitting "baching-"  and j->ini:-j the ranks of the Benedicts.  So it ha* been that his roomy cabin   at  Deadwood   has   seldom   if   ever   been  graced by the presence of the fair sex.  However   this   undesirable    state    of  things would not be permitted to go on  forever without some sort of a  protest.  The idea of such  a decent man  never  hearing a woman's happy laug-h within the  walls of his  snug  log- house;  such a reproach on the  neighborliness  of the good ladies of Deadwood had  to  be removed.    So it was  that  they put  thnir heads together and, taking  some  of their menfolk along with them, and  a whole raft of good things to eat  and  drink,  and   not forgetting the  fidler,  they took Scott by storm, their advent  being a   veritable   "surprise   party".  But the good man soon pulled  himself  together and  everybody  settled  down  to having a "hihu time".    First Scott's  health    and    happiness    was    drunk  '('(hough  the   ladies-couldIn' t~ imagine  a lone man   being  happy;  why  didn't  he get a wife to look after his comfort)  and then chairs, tables, beds and other  things that always lumber up  a bachelors house, bundled outside,   a stand  rigged up in a corner for the "orches-  i'K", and in a quarter less than no time  everybody was tripping the  light! fa"  tastic  to   the  music  of  "2'ip   Coon",  "Sugar   in   the  Coffee, O"  and  other  classic melodies too numerous to  mention.    Oh, it did the good ladies' hearts  good to see Scot), after he got over his  amazement,   slowly   realize  that this  was the opportunity  of a  lifetime;  to  see him shake off his  moccasins  and  j join the  merry  crowd,  determined  to  ] have more fun than it is often the luck  ; of a  trapper  or  prospector   to have in  j one evening.      At  last   the end of the  j programme was reached, supper scrv-  1 ed. and   the   ladies  with   their  escorts  departed homewards,   glad to have for  ;on-..e   shed    light   on   the    dark    path  ; travelled   by   the  poor lone man.    But  j there was no sleep yet, for some of the  j sour dough boys, who remained to dis  i cuss the unwonted proceedings, got in-  ' to an argument as to who was the best  ' dancer,  so  Scott  and  Danny McRae,  j Dave Good and Jim  McLaren  entered  | into a dancing contest.    It  was a reg-  . ular  "breakdown"  for   Scott   danced  j with such vigor ;hat he   broke through  the floor,   so,   much   to his disappointment,   Judge Jack Lucy  awarded the  prize to Danny and, after "kissing the  baby"    once   more,   the    lights   were  turned    out    and    darkness    reigned  where earlier the  boys had had more  fun than one could shake a stick at.  3*^1^6   BOUNDARY   VALLEY   LODGE  'v-ySv*.^ No. 38,1. 0. 0.

According Io the general revenue account the Fire  Department appear to have cost the city $938.18 for the yer.r, including the  driver's salary, but they were credited with $654 for wo k done on the streets  aud street sprinkling.  The School expense account was a charge on the city of $1,204.45 for the  year, but it was only credited with three quarterly grants from the government  as the one for the last three months amounting to $285.45 had not arrived-when  the books were closed, therefore the school really cost the city only $918.00 for  the year instead of $1,204.45.  ""As'the fixed assets of the city Were"sta:hding  cost I wrote off a certain amount for depreciation via., 10 per cent on buildings  and fire department, 20 per cent on property account, 5 per cent on street improvements, waterworks and cemetery accounts. I t'id this on my own  initiative and trust that it will meet with your views. "-a *���.���!���  The total indebtedness of the city on December 31st, 1902,  was $100;822.35,  (including $2,575  only  on  school account although $5 000 debentures were issued)  against $110,720 a year   ago, but then there was $2,991 cash on' hand in  the general account  against $113.76 now, so after making allowance forthe  cash on hand in both cases the liabilities of the city were reduced about $7,000  during the year, which is accounted  to a large extent by the proposed lax sale  which  brought  it   a large amount of money outstanding for arrears.of taxes,  and by a reduction in salaries of about $2,000 for the.yeai;. .     ..   . . ..,.

"�����fe����-"  �����'  H  ."�� i  Committee will Confer With Board  of Trade Committee!  A meeting of the Greenwood Progressive Association was held on Wednesday afternoon with the president  Dr. J. E. Spankie in the chair. There  was a larg-e attendance. Among those  present were C. A. Dempsej', S. Barry  Yuill, E. T. Wickwire, Aid. Bunting,  J. R. Brown, Aid. Gulley, J. L. White,  G. B. Taylor, M. E. Frazee, A. G. Davis, Julius Ehrlich, J. J. Caulfield, S.  Grierson, C. H. Fair, C. R. Pittock, E.  Jacobs, D. C. McRae. Geo, R. Naden,  J. P. Myers Grey, C. W. Wilson, Fred.  M. Elkins, W. M. Law, and H. Evans.  It was decided to fix the initiation fee  to the association at $2.50 and quarterly due at $1. The executive committee  waB authorized to draft.a constitution  and by-laws and submit at the next  meeting of the association.  Messrs H. F. Mytton, Duncan Ross  and secretary Gaunce were present as  a. committee from the Board of Trade.  The matter of amalgamation of the  tw.o bodies was discussed pro and con  at length" The weight of argument  was in favor of all working under the  ���charter of the Board of Trade but several reformations would have to be  made in connection with the board  such as a reduction in initiation fees  and dues before the organization would  be favorably considered by the member  of the Progressive Association. Finally a committee was appointed to confer 'with"the liomttiitt-ee'bf the'BbarcVdf  Trade to consider a plan satisfactory  to both organizi'i'tis The committee  are Dr. Spankie, Aid. Gulley and J. L.  White. They will report to a meeting  held in the city hall Wednesday after-  q$0n naxt to which time the meeting  was adjouned.  MINING NOTES.  What district can beat Green wood'a  record as a high grade camp? The  car of ore shipped from the Lancashire  Fraction which is bein& worked under  leas; and bond by B. N. Fattlkeuer,  Shorey Heyden, T. Stewart and D.  Vicar was extracted while a shaft was  being sunk���the most expensive way  to get out ore. After all expenses of  mining, hauling, freight and treatment, preparatory work 'amounting  to $700 and  ten per cent to C. R. Pit-  STbARRY YUILL  tock and other owners was paid there  remains a clear gain of 51,027.50. The  claim has been worked for about two  months and there is considerable  similar ore in sight  Word comes from New York that the  B. C. Copper company's stock has  jumped from $4 to S8.50 during the  last few days. When it is considered  that an extraordinary general .meeting  of the company will be held shortly  for the purpose of adding $750,000 to  the capital of the company, the increased price quoted is most gratifying. Should the shares remain at this  tigtirc, the sale of the new issue would  give the company over, one million  and a quarter for increasing the  smelting plant building, converters  ana refineries and purchasing new-  mines. If is understood that the mine  which the company expects to purchase is the Big Copper. The owners  Geo. B. McAulay and. John Moran arc  now in New York to discuss the rale  at the general meeting. Considerable  work was done on the Big Copper last  year under the supervision of Mr.  Moran. Mining men who visited the  property since this work was done are  unanimously of the opinion that the  Big Copper has easily one of the biggest and best copper showings in the  district. The reported price- of the  property is 5100,000.  Messrs. Archie'Connors and Donald  Mclnnes have run into a promising  body of copper ore on the Summit mineral claim, in Summit camp, about a  mile west of the Oro Denoro'. After  running an open cut 20 feet into the  side of the hill they commenced tunneling. For 40 feet the tunnel passed  through ledge matter, and then entered  an ore shoot which now shows -four  feet in thickness and the tunnel not  yet through'it'.' The ore carries small  values in gold aud silver as well as the  copper. 'Mclnnes has a bond on W. J.  Corbett's interest in this property, and  Connors has been . prospecting it  lately. Connors and Corbett did a  deal of prospecting on the claim during several years, but they did not  meet with a permanent shoot cf ore,  although bunches of good ore were oc-  cassionally encountered.  Mr. R. P. Williams, agent at Greenwood for- the Jenckes Machine  company, has sold a power plant to  Dr. Wells, of the Columbia University  School of Mines, New York, fcr use iii  prospecting the Morning Star, in Fair-  view camp, Okanagan. This property  was recently bonded by outside parties  from S. Mangott, of Fairview, and at  the time the transaction was made  public it was stated that it was intended to sink 300 feet on the claim. The  plant now purchased consists of a 30-  horse power vertical boiler, 6 bv 8 Bacon hoist, No. 5 Cameron sinking pump  of plunger pattern, ropes, buckets, cars  pipes and all necessary accompaniments. Mr. M. IJ. Parcel I. a mining  man well-known in the Kossland district, is in charge ��.f the development  work, which is now in progress at the  mine.
