 Vol. 7.  GREENWOOD, B. C. FRIDAY, AUGUST 28.  1903.  Ko.jVTfJ  Changes of Recent Years  Very Marked.  Changes  Made In Five Years  Are  Graphically Described.  Grbbnwood, ��� Friday, Aug. 14.���In  his interesting book "From Ocean to  Ocean," Dr. Grant very aptly and beau  tifully described British Columbia as a  "sea of mountains." Across mountain  range after mountain range, into can-  yot after canyon, along valley after  valley, the hardy pioneer forrced his  difficult way. Sometimes his bread  was made of -flour, sometimes from an  oily nutritious moss that grows on certain trees, but in the earlier days much  of his food consisted of the flesh of animals killed by his unerring aim.  Then the pioneer merchant with his  pack train pushed his way along uncertain trails farther and parther and farther . away from railway and wagon  points, and brought bacon and flour so  near that the prospector, if he had the  price, might by several days of exceed-  ingtoil add small supplies to his scanty  larder. ;  ���-,:��fSo - Moieiitij* as 4we~years ago, when  the writer first saw Boundary Creek in  the Kootenays, a;-primitive stage made  the trip'seventy miles from Marcus on  the Spokane Falls & Northern Railway  and another frohf Penticton, at the foot  of take. Okanagan, ninety miles into  the little mining-camp of Greenwood.  But the roads were rough and hilly, the  equipments mediocre and the miles very  long. The writer recalls the ninety-  mile trip from Penticton in January,  1899, with the mercury from 30 to 40  degrees below zero, part way on wheels  and part way on runners, with slow  teams and infrequent changes. It was  midnight when the more than half-  frozen passengers were put down at  Camp McKinney, the half way point  ^fQrithose__of���usfdestined forBoundary  Creek.  But the potentialities of Southeastern  British Columbia were not unknown to  the enterprise of the Canadian Pacific  Railway which eventually worked its  way over mountain pass after mountain pass, by switchbach and tunnel into  this a region which in three years has  shown, itself a factor in the world's pro  ductiori of copper and earned from the  greatest copper experts of the world the  distinction of making the world's record for cheap copper mining and  smeltiiig of copper ores.  The railway has wrought a revolution in more ways than one. It has  cheapened and varied living, ,and in  some ways it has cheapenen and vurted  men. The typical old prospector is  fast becoming extinct. The typical  miner, who spent most of his earnings  on his personal gratifications, has been  largely supplanted by more thrifty ones  from the farms down east, who although not averse to a stratum of enjoyment in the life formation, conceive  ��� a bank account not an altogether unfortunate thing to possess.  But the changes wrought by the advent of the railway are marked in other  ways. The good will and generosity  and trust that existed among the old-  timers seems in part to have run away.  A few years age no padlocks were  -needed on the doors of the rude cabins  . up in the hills. No hungry one ran  ran any risk in going into a prospecct-  cabin and resting for the night or making himself a meal. He was welcome  to everthing in the cabin that his circumstances demanded, but his honor  bound him to in no way abuse his privilege. Theft was unthought of and unprovided against. Those truly were  chivalric rays among the people of  tqose lonely hills. But wherever a  cabin is found today within easy reach  of tbe towns or railway, the padlock ou  the door tells its story distrust. Sometimes, still, the door is kept unlocked,  and a kindly notice on the door is in  tended to do more effectively than even  a lock would do for the preservation of  proprietary rights. Sometimes a rude-  le written legend like this may be  found playing police for a cabin in  some secluded spot: *��'.'.-'���  "You are welcome to go in and, help  yourself to anything you may'.,heed;  but for God's sake don't turn thief and  carry off the stove."  Yes, the changes of recent years  have been very marked. Five years  ago the first cabin built in the valley  stood where today stands the Canadian  Bank of Commerce. A half dozen years  ago from its dorway the owner replenished liis larder by shooting the deer as  he crossed the valley in search of food  or water. Today the discount clerk  gets in his deadly work on the selfsame  spot, while at the doorway one meets  not the man with the rifle, but the man  coming out to tell you "that the manager would like to see you."  And who'shall say that the deer did  not have the best of it? The bullet of  the prospector might miss but that of  the bank messedger never. And thus  the change goes forward.  It seems but yesterday when a perpetual Sabbath-like calm rested upon  the entire country. Men sat at their  cabin doors and smoked and told tales  of other lands and wondered if ever  railways and reduction works would  make their ironcap of value. Today  the clang and roar and whistle of the  railway locomotive, the rattle of the  sampling works, the buzz of the hoist,  the din of smelter and mill tell that  busy life has supplanted old ideals.  Northward, westward, primitive ideas  and primitive methods have been pushed. Life that was extremely simple has  become intense, and methods that, were  crude have changed into the complex.  The resultant of the forces at work- is  that Boundary Creek this year will  mine and smelt three-quarters of a  million tons of ore.  A Cucumber Story.  We found on our desk this morning  a monster cucumber of the English  variety known as the "Lord Roberts,"  grown by Ferguson & Patterson,  gardeners, Greenwook. It measured  \9}i inches in length. Fungus says  its flavor beats anything in its line in  British Columbia.  Fungus justly complains of the lack  of support by the Greenwood people  generally, who for some reason continue patronizing.Chinese.farmers and  gardeners. The public should remember that all fruits and vegetab'e handled by Chiuamen out of town are picked the evening before, and after a long  haul in a hot sun are not to be compared with with the produce of the Ferguson gardens which is picked the morning it is placed on the market, and are  as clean and fresh as if taken from a  private garden. The prices are as low  as any and the vegetables are not sent  out to market a second time, as is the  case with the Chinamen, to be sold for  what they will bring.  Fungus states his vast hygienic reputation on the fact that it is the consumption of so many stale greens that  enables the corner drug store to dispose  of so many bottles of Chamberlain's  cholic mixture.  MUCH FOR  GREENWOOD  Report That Negotiations  Were Successful.  nwiiLBEin  Snowshoe Ore Will Be Treated At  Greenwood Smelter.  The Boundary Creek Times Wall  street correspondent is the authority  for the statement that the rumoured  amalgamation between the B. C. Copper company and the Snowshow Gold  & Copper company has been affected  in London Eng. Mr. Underwood of  New York the president of the B. C.  Copper company went over to London  for the purpose of discussing details of  the am'algamatation with Geo. S. Waterlow Chairman of the Board Directors  of the Snowshow, Anthony J. McMillan, Managing director and others interested. It is reported in New York  that the negotiations were successful  and in a short time these two big mines  will be owned and operatedby an amalgamated company who will treat the  output of botri mines at the Greenwood  smelter which will be enlarged.  It is now nearly two years since the  amalgamation was first suggested and  since v then the mines have been thoroughly experted by representatives of  the respective companies. J. W. Ast-  ley M. E. Superintendent of the Snow-  shoe spent several days at the Mother  Lode and W. H Thomaa of the B. C.  Copper company thoroughly experted  the Snowshow. The announcement is  confirmed by the fact that Snowshoe  ore will now be all treated at the Greenwood smelter and plans are being unshed for the additional furnaces and  conuertor plant. The Snowshoe and  Mother Lode ores make a good blend  so that the amalgamation is mutually  advantageous.  .   The proposed amalgamation  means  much for Greenwood.  ity." The good natured mine manager stood for the picture and the young  ladies went away delighted. Imagine  their consternation when at the dinner  table that e-ening they found their typical cowboy transposed into a clerical  looking gentlemen whom the afterward  discovered was manager of one of the  big mines of British Columbia.  Charles McArthur has returned from  a trip to the West Fork country where  he has been inspecting mining property recently acquired by him, and  upon which he has a number of men  employed. While on a hunting trip  with Harry Blythe of Westbridge he  succeeded in capturing a couple of  bears. One of them is a magnificent  specimen of the black bear, the pelt  measuring 7 feet 6 inches in.length.  Mr. McArthur reports an abundance of  all kinds of feathered game within  easy reach of Westbridge hotel. He  returns much pleased with the appearance of the ledge which has proved to  be at least 14- feet in width with good  gold and copper values.  Rev. J. D, P. Knox left on Wednesday for Nelson where he attended  the financial district meeting of the  West Kootenay District on Thursday.  Mr. Knox returned home today. A  publis meeting was held in Nelson last  night to commorate the 200th anniversary of the birth of John Wesley. The  meeting was addressed by Revs. J.  Calvert of New Denver, R. F. Stillman  of Rossland and J. D. P. Knox of  Greenwood.  A Typical Cowboy.  The are telling a good story at the  expense of Frederic Keffer manager of  the B. C. Copper Company. Recently  Mr. Keffer paid a visit to Banff and  combined business with pleasure by  riding some eighty miles from the  famous spring to expert a mine. The  trip occupied several days and Mr.  Keffer an his guide returned dirty,  dusty, unkempt and unshaven. As  they approached the hotel they were  accosted by two young ladies from New  York who asked them to stop while  they could take a snap shot. "We  have beef, trying to get a good pieHire  of typical cowboys of the west" explained the two young ladies "and this  has been the first favorable opportun  William Dunstan a miner from the  Sunset is in the hospital as a result of  an accident at the mine yesterday. In  attempting to step clear of a mass of  ore he was dislodging he tripped and  fell injuring his back and chest, and  sustaining a'seyere cut in 'thie temple  and a badly lacerated hand. Dr  Spankie attended the injured man and  had him removed to the Sister' Hospital, Greenwood.  Spokane Interstate Fair.  One of the handsomest exhibits to be  seen this year at the Spokane Interstate Fair in October, will be the display made by the various marble companies and some of the individuals who  own quarries of marble and other ornamental stones. W. A. Coplen, superintendent of the mining department,  has been assured of some handsome  exhibits in this line. There is a rival-  : ry, Jbe twee n_a_���,n u mbe r r;_of ^t he ^ in arble.  companies to see which can put on the  most beautiful specimens. The com-  panias which will exhibit are the U. S.  Marble Co., the Crystal Marble Co.,  the Great Western Marble Co. and the  Spokane Marble Co. Many novel exhibits will be made, not only of marble  but of onyx, serpentine and similar  stones. The city of Spokane was unable to think of anything more beautiful and novel as a gift to Presides I and  Mrs. Roosevelt than a set of goblets  made from some of this material.  Each one of the companies mentioned  will itself make an exhibit which will  be far superior to all the marble exhibits heretofore made at any one fair.  This marble is proving one of most  valuable products of the country and is  in great demand in the east.  MINING  ASSOCIATION  Boundary Ore Shipments*        j  Granby Mines....  Mother Lode   B. C.

List of Queries to Be Addressed to  Candidates for Legislature.  507 811      15 896     396 031  >:  The Executive of the Provincial  Mining Association met in Rossland  on Tuesday and Wednesday ��� of this  week and transacted much important  business. After a lengthy discussion  it was decided to carry the fight for  beUer legislation into the realm of  practical politics. This will be done  by addressing a 'ist of queries to all  candidates, regardless of part)-, as to  whether or not he is in sympathy with  the aims and objects of the association  generally, and with the following particularly :  1. To repeal the two per cent tax.  2. To amend the mineral I act so as  to provide that failure to keep up a free  miners license shall 'not operate as a  complete forfeiture of rights acquired  under it but. that some reasonable provision be adopted for extension of time  within which the certiiicate must be renewed.  3. To entitle the owner of mineral  claims to the use >of timber on such  claims without the imposition of the  royalty now enforced.  4. Crown grants on mineral claims  to be reduced from $25 to $10.  5.. To inquire into the operation of  the Boiler Inspection Act with a view  to ascertaining to what extent the said  act works unnecessary hardships upon  the owners and operators of steam  boilers and to remove by amendment  any just grievance.  6. To amend the Placer Mining Act  to enable holders of placer claims to  secure title thereto by crown grants.  7. To pass a conciliation act for the  settlement of labor troubles. t,  8. To revise and consolidate thcacts  relathigjto quartzandplacer mi uing,to  remove numerous anomalies 'in existing acts and to simplify laws relating  to mining.  9. The desirability of opening Indian reserves throughout the province  for mining purposes.  Copies of the foregoing in extenso  are to be sent to the candidates nominated throughout the province and to  the newspapers.  On motion of Messrs Howse and  Kirby it -was resolved that the executive should convene at Kamloops on  November 23rd next.  At the close of the session the executive was banquetted by the Rossland  branch of the association. Replying  to "Our Guests" President John Keen  urged greater effort to increase the  membership of the association, while  Mr. Howse took advantage of the occasion to eloquently describe Ihe mineral resources of the Okanogan country. ��  Replying to the toast "The Prov ince"  E. B. Kirby gave solid satisfaction to  the Rossland branch by declaring that  Rossland had passed the depression  stage of its existence and could now  look forward to more prosperity than  had been the case for some time.  "The Press" was responded to by  Duncan Ross of the Boundary Creek  Times, and a thoroughly enjoyable  evening came to a close by the singing  of the national anthem.  Local interest in matters pertaining  to the association has been stimulated  by the meeting of the executive iu  Rossland. The local secretary reports  a large number of prompt responses to  the circular recently sent out calling  for new members, the majority of the  new members are miners and prospectors, the hotels and large mercantile  houses coming in more slowly.  m  X~X~X~X^^><~XK~XK"X^X^>***,>��*fr'&*^<��v      Do you use I* '������: Ribbon Tea Pajrc '2  THE   BOUNDARY   CREEK   TIMES  COMPANY, LTD.

FLIRTING WITH THE POLITICIANS.  The  action  of  the Provincial  Mining -.Assocjatipi^ex^ci^n^at  its Rossland meeting was in our  opinion ill-advised. We are quite  prepared to admit that politics  should be to secure good g-overnment and the only way to secure  reforms is through political action. Suet action to be effective  must be by one of the two great  political parties. Labor parties,  Socialist parties or even Mining  associations may flatter themselves with the idea that they can  purify the body politic without  party affiliation, but experience  teaches that their actions tend to  delay not hasten reforms. The  Provincial Mining Association  started out as a non-polilical  institution: It now wants to flirt  with the candidates. We venture  to say that the letter of the Association demanding- categorical  answers to certain questions will  meet with scant courtesy from  man}' of the candidates who are  not responsible to any other than  the electors in the various districts which they are to contest.  In the event of their answers not  i,  being satisfactory  to the executive of the Provincial Mining Association what is that bod}- going  to do?   If they attempt to disci  pline  such candidates  they will  find that members of the Provincial Mining Association will  stand by the candidate of their  party in preference to the Mining  Association. Boards of Trade  and similar institutions can do  effective work in influencing the  government - or legislature by  making .proper representations at  the proper time, but the usefulness of a board of trade would be  destroyed did it attempt to interfere in a political contest. The  same is equally true of the Provincial Mining Association. Its  individual members will be found  loyally working for their party  candidate and they will give"but  slight-consideration to-resoliitious  passed by the executive. It would  have beeu much wiser for the executive to take a holiday until  after the elections are over.  presbytery meeting. ^f?!iim!HimHmnnmH?mHinin!iTn?nmH?i?imii!mmf!!^:  Much Important Business  Transacted.  EDITORIAL NOTES.  Not satisfied with providing a  place for their dead, the Conservatives want a medical man to  look after their wounded. The  Conservatives have a reputation  for looking aftei themselves.  Premier McBride, on his rctt-rn  from a political trip to the north,  expresses the opinion that Mr.  Clifford will win on account of  his personal popularity. ��� The  wish is doubtless father of the  premier's thought, but in that  thought is conve3'ed a severe  though true reflection on the  McBride government. There is  nothing in tbe government, nor  in the Conservative record, to  commend itself to the intelligent  electors. Mr. McBride's onl}-  hope lies in the personal popularity of the candidates supporting  him. An attempt is being made  nearer home to make a showing-  with a personally popular candidate. But the people are waking  up. Personal government is a  thing of the past. The people  want something besides a hail  fellow well met.  The. simtranniial meeting of the Koot  enay Presbytery convened in St. Andrew's Fros'iytorian church Rossland  on Tuesday morning ;intl proceeded to  its work of reviewing- Uie labors of the  past six months Those in attendance  ���were: Rev. H. Youtigvmocierator; Jas.  Ball, clerk; J. R. Robertson, Grand  Forks; D. L. Gordon, Fernie; W. G. W.  Fortune, Cranbro.k; Dr. Wrig-lit. Nelson; V. M. Purdy, Phoenix; Win. Sim-  inons, Sloean; B. C. W. McColl, Columbia; T. S. Glasford, Nakusp; W. G.  Brown, New Denver; George H. Find-  lay, Ainsworth; W. S. Graham, (elder),  Greenwood; Rev, A. S. Thompson, ��� B.  A., Midway; and Rev. Dr. Herdman.  . The first session w as taken up with  reading: of minutes of past meetings  and an instructive Bible reading on the  91st Psalm by ..Rev Dr Herdman.; The  afternoon session was wholly taken up  with reading of the home mission report, which was presented by the convener, W G "W Fortune. The report  showed that in the face of the general  depression throughout the county the  ministers of the church are doing an  aggressive and successful work In  closing the report the superintendent  of missions, Dr Herdmen, expressed his  gratitude to the Presbytery for die help  accorded him in his work, and to the  ministers throughout the Presbytery  for the fruitful labors in the hard  Dlacesiwithin our bounds.  ' The session on Tuesday evening was  taken up by an address and conference  on the live topic of socialism. Dr  Wright of Nelson, read an instructive  and inspiring address and laid down  the true principles for social reform.  Rev D L Gordon follcwed with: a. paper  opening up the subject for conference,  which provoked some discussion.  Those taking p;irt in the discussion  were Rev J R Robertson, Rev B C W  McColl and Rev Jas Ball, and the conference closed with a .thoughtful and  suggestive paper by Rev V M Purdy.  The session ot Wednesday morning  opened with an instructive and interesting Bible reading led by Rev Jos  McNeill, who is at present supplying  St. Andrew's church, Rossland. ���  The resignation of J R Robertson, B  A, of the pastoral charge of Knox  church, Grand Forks,-' which,has been  before the Presbytery ;for the past  three months was taken tip anddispos-  ed of. The finding ofthe Presbytery  was as follows: "Having- heard the report 0} the previous meeting of the  Presbytery and the letter written by.  Mr Turner," it was moved by Mr Fortune and seconded by Mr MiColl that  the Presdytery requests Mr. Robertson  to withdraw his resignation for the  following reasons:  "The large majority of his congregation is opposed to his resigning.  "Generally speaking- the active workers of his congregation are very hearty  in their opposition to his resignation  7T'Tiie~cause of Christ would suffer if  Mr and Mrs Robertson left at this particular juncture.  "And in conclusion we assure Mr  Robertson of our sympathy with him  in upholding the things that make for  ritrht viiisness.  The re.solutien was unanimously carried a-id Mr Robertson in reply thanked  the Presbytery for their confidence and  consented to withdraw his resignation.  Tlie r--ignation of V M Purily. R A,  of the pastoral charge of St. Andrew's  church. Phoenix, was presented and  accep'fd with retrret. A resolution of  confidence aud esteem was passed expressive nf Mr Purdy's heroic services  in tli* midst of adverse conditions and  of symnnthv with him that because of  the hiyh altitude his physician urges a  change without a delay. Rev JR Robertson, of Grand Forks, was then appoint^! moderator pro tem of the cm  grelation of Ph< enix to declare the  pulpit vacant nt'Xi Sabbath. M. Robertson was also appointed moderator of  tlu! Greenwood congregation during its  vacancy.  It was with regret the Presbytery  learneil that Rev A L Burch, B A, had  found it necessary to decline the call  extended to him by the people of St  Andrew's church, Rossland, but the  Presbytery hopes the congregation  may soon be happily settled so that the  danger of a. prolonged vacancy  may be avoided.  The commissioners of Presbytery to  the general assembly in Vancouver, including ivev H Young, M A,' Rev Dr  Wright. Rev J K Robertson, B A, and  Mr. W S Giaham, gave brief addresses  on their attendance atr the assembly.  They all reported that the assembly  had a very successful meeting, that the  church realized more than ever its  gre'..t heritage of Western Canada, and  | that that the interest of the people in  j the great work of the church was marked and intense.- .      ���. .. j ���  H Slates,  Pencils*   Rubbers,  Etc/ Etc* =��  I~ EVERYTHING IN THE LINE OF   T ��1  B ���-    SCHOOL   SUPPLIES   MAY'   BE =|  IB HAD   AT   FIGHT  PRICES AT 3:  1 Smith & Mclili's, f  i��r Books.

FOR PRESERVING  AT MODERATE PRICES.  DEALERS IN FRUITS, COFFECTIONERY  ETC.  ICE CREAm PARLORS  Remarkable Cure of Diarrhoea  '���About six years ago for the first  tiino in my life I had a sudden and  severe attack of diarrhoea," says Mrs.  Alice Miller, of Morgan, Texas. ''I  got temporary relief, lu-.t it came back  atfitin and again, and feu six long years  I have suffered more misery and agony  than I can tell. It was worse than  death. My husband spent hundreds of  dollars for physicians' prescriptions  and treatment without avail. Finally  we moved to Bosque county, our  present home, and one day I happened  to see an advertisement of Chamberlain's Colic, Cholera and Diarrhoea  Remedy with a testimonial of a man  who had been cured by it. The case  was so similar to my own that I concluded to try the remedy. The result  was wonderful. I could hardly realize  that I was well again, or believe it  could be so after having suffered so  long, but that one bottle of medicine,  costing but a few cents, cured me."  For| sale by J. L. White, Greenwood,  and A. F, Thomas, Midway.  Tne liberal platform, as adopted at  the provincial liberal convention held  at Vancouver on February 7th, 1902, is  as follows :  r\. The immediate redistribution of  the constituencies of the province on  the basis of population but allowing a  smaller unit of population per seat for  the outlying districts.  2. Government ownership, Dominion, provincial and municipal, of public  services of utilities issoundand should  be carried out in British Columbia.  3. Should it be advisable at any  time to grant aid to a railway company  such shall be in cash and not in land  and no bonus of any kind shall be  given without definite and effective  means being taken to safeguard the  interests of the province in the management of the road, control of the  freight and passenger rates, and provision made against such railway having any liability against it except for  actual cost.  4. Immediate construction of the  Coast-Kootenay railway; the Cariboo  railway; a railway from Alberni to a  point on the east coast of the island; a  road in the northern part of the province from the coast to the eastern  boundary with an extension to the  northern boundary; the railway from  Vernon to Midway by north fork of  Kettle river; with necessary branch  lines, ferries and connections.  5. The enforcement of the act now  in force compelling the scaling of logs  by government scalers.  6. That such legislation should be  enacted as will result in making the  lands included in the various dyking  areas available for cultivation as  quicKly as possible and secure prompt  payments of assessments when due.  7. That the government should keep  in touch with the conditions in connection with mining, protecting said  industry against combines and trusts  and if necessary for the purpose build  and operate smelters and refineries.  No reasonable change should be made  in the mining laws without full notice  to all parties interested, giving full  opportunity for discussion and criticism.  8. As the province can only advance  by the settlement within its borders of  thrifty and-prosperous citizens, and as  Orientals never become citizens in any  proper sense of the word, we declare-it  to be the duty of the government to  discourage. Oriental immigration and  employment by every means witnin  its power, and we appeal to our fellow  liberals throughout the Dominion to  aid us in our efforts to protect ours-ilves  against the ruinous competition^ of  men having a standard of decency and  comfort immensely below that of  civilized peoples, and who shirk every  duty and obligation of citenship which  the law will allow them to escape.  9. The government ought to prevent  the���wasteland���suffering- caused- by  strikes and lock-outs, and an eanest  effort ought to be made to provide  some means of preventing such strikes  and lockouts, and we approve the  adoption of compulsory arbitration.  10. The fiscal system of the province stands in need of revision. Taxation should bear upon privilege  rather than upon industry, and no addition should be made to the debt of  the province except for public works  properly chargeable to capital.  11. The retaining ofthe resources  of the province as an asset for tuc  benefit of the people and taking effective measures to prevent the alienation  of the public domain except for actual  bona fide business or industrial purposes, putting an end to tlie practice  of speculating in connection with the  samp.  12. The construction and maintenance of roads throughout the province  to aid in the development of the mining and agricultural districts.  Grape juice the summer drink.
