H. H, Melville. 'of  Boston, president of the company,'Ji  Wesley. Allison one of the .directors  and Geo. H. Munroe. :: It was.understood that English' syndicate had.already : secured large holdings but had  hot then obtained absolute control. It  was also reported .that the syndicate  was desirous of centralizing, tne smelting industry of the Boundary Creek  district, and were after the B. C. Copper company's and Granby company's  holdings.  Color is lent to these various rumors  by the-presenceof Malcolm Galbraith  in New York. Mr. Galbraith is engineer in.charge of the Montreal and Boston mines. Interviewed in New York  he said : "As< to the question of .control of the Montreal- & B.oston Copper  company passing to English capitalists  airi'c^n"siy:ii3"t'liit"re"jwese.htativcs'-ofi  large' .English copper interests have  recently thoroughly investigated, the:  Boundary ,Creek district w'ith a view tb  establishing an immense smelter capable, of handling all the ores ofthe  district as well as a large proportion, of  the ores of the Republic district which  are now going to Grand Forks but  which will cotne to Greenwood when  the .Great..Northern branch is completed."  Taking all this into consideration together with the statement of Mr.  Underwood, that he would be able to  make a definite announcement regarding amalgamation within three  months, it looks as if there was something more than mere talk in the reported negotiations looking towards  the amalgamation of the smelting interests.  circulation to the effect that au amalga  mation scheme between the Waterloo  and Fontenoy companies, owniag adjoining properties at Camp McKinney,  fT.as under consideration. This has,  however, been- denied: by one of the  Waterloo directots.

During the fall-we hare  auak innumerable prospect holes on  the reins and in every instance splendid, values hare beer obtained, the  average of the many assays made be-  ingabout $107. The values are derived from tbe gold. There is a little  silver, but it amounts to nothing.  About 60 per cent of the ore is con-  ���eptrating and the concentrates will  rpn from $950 to $3000 a ton.  "Thus far we have driven only one  tne nel and thia is only in about sixty  fast.

Tiik Boundary Ckukk Times wishes  its   readers    and     patroiis     a     merry  CiirisUnas.  P.\S3INtr OF FSOG-KESSIVES.  The Provincial Progressive Party  which was organized at Kamloops  nearly a year ago does not appear to  be meeting with much success. It  received the first body blow from  Eugene V. Debbs who likened it to a  jar of mixed pickles. I*ast week Chris.  Foley its president, served hia connection with the party and scored the  worhingmaii for the lack of interest  which they took in matters relating to  labor. "Hereafter" he continued "you  will see Foley cut entirely loose from  the party."  The incident points a moral, if it  does not adorn a tale. The truth is  that there is no room within the arena  of practical politics for more than two  parties. When a number of men become dissatisfied with existing conditions,., and. .organize themselves in to a  separate political party, they do not do  their cause any good but help to defeat what they are striving for. To  illustrate,'one of the great parties is in  favor we will say of tariff reform, but  there are those within that party who  are out and out free traders. "This  party doesn't go far enough" they say  "let us organize a free trade party" So  the free trade party is organized. They  elect one or two members who when  they get to the house are like lost  sheep, but what else have they done ?  They' put candidates in. constituencies  Where the fair traders had good  chances of winning and the result is  the return of out and out .protectionists. To come nearer home, the Provincial Progressive party could not  hope to nontrol the legislature, but by  placing candidates in the field they  might easily succeed in perpetuating  the bad government of today. Your  free trader should make his fight:with  in the party to which he is allied. He  should work and organize and fight  and kick within hie party until his  object is accomplished, but the moment he steps withont the fold, he.is  simply aiding the enemy. And there  is plenty pf room for your Provincial  Progressive man in one great party,  organized for the purpose of giving  good government to this province.  Today we have a half a dozen organ iz  ations in the province, all with one  object in view���securing good government. But they work at cross purposes and failure is the result. Anew  and weak political organization is an  easy mark for the political adventurer.  The Progressives did not escape.  One Thos. R. Mclnnes looV possession of the party. Who is Thos. R.  Mclnnes ? A Tory of the Tories, he  quarrelled with his chief Sir John A.  MacDonald some 20 years ago about a  Port Moody land speculation and left  the Conservative party. He joined  the Liberals and was appointed Lieutenant-governor of British Columbia'.  For reasons which are well known he  was practically kicked out of office and  he has been sore at the Liberal party  ever since. Now Thos. R. Mclnnes  has no sympathy with the views and  aspirations of the ordinary Progressive  man, but he is anxious to'secure a seat  in the House of Commons and he must  have a party of some kind. He'cannot go back to the Conservatives and  his curt dismissal by the Liberal  government still rankles, so he takes  possession of the Progressives ana ari-  nouces himself not as a candidate in  party interests but in the people's interest.     Who can  wonder that blunt,  honest old Chris. Foley   got disgusted  and quit.  The place to fiRht like blazes as our :  old friend J. Israel Tarte wouli say is  at the party meetings. A man is a  poor party man wlio will allow his  party to drift into error without rais-  his voice to defend those principles for  which the party stands, but he is a  worse statesmen if he thinks he can  organize a new paity every time he  does not get his way, or he considers  reforms do not come fast enough for  him.  These lines are not penned to bol  ster ��p any one political party or  down another. What we had in mind  was the fact that all those who are in  favor of good government should work  together instead of cutting each  other's. throats.  Since the above was writ'.en Mr.  Foley has announced that he has not  left the Progressive party, only that  portion- of it which makes Vancouver  its headquarters  0<>OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOSOO<X>000000000OOOO OOOOOOOOO  OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO aooooooooooooo OOOO OOOOOOOOO  Established 18 36.

Many 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, decayed, or  othervise out of working order;  and if this be the case, the mouth  requires immediate attention.  iW-.-*.  m  m  m  REPRESENTING :  .'The Phoenix Fire Assurance The British   America  Assur-  /     Co. of London, England. ance Co., of Toronto.

After all the interest people t.k.r in  municipal elections is purely local. It  is seldom that an elector takes any interest in municipal matters beyond the  particular town in which he dwells  But there are matters of general nature  where concerted action would result  beneficially to all municipalities. Today when the municipal a*~t clashes  with the interests of any particular  town, the council of that town immediately begins a singlohanded cam  paign to secure such amendments to  the act as will suit their particular  purposes.

Act  A Forest and Stream club was  organized at the city hall last Wednesday evening-. There were about  twenty present and seventeen of these  signed the membership roll of the new  club. The meeting was called to order  by the appointment of Dr. A O. McRae to the chair and J. S. Birnie as  secretary. It was decided to immedia  tely proceed with the organization of a  Forest and Stream club and the following provisional officers were elected : ; President, H. C. Shaw; vice president, C. L. Thomet of Midway: sec-  treas., E. W. Monk; committee, Geo.  Findlay, W. O. Wright and J. P.  Myers-Gray. The provisional officers  were requested to prepare a constitution and by-laws and report at a meeting to be held in the city hall on January 7th.  Afterwards an informal discussion  took place regarding the best means to  protect game. The principal points  brought ont were that ten deer for one  jseason weretoo generousa number .for  one man to kill, that there should be  some system adopted to record the  number of deer slain by one man, that  the open season for birds began before  birds were matured, that power companies should be compelled to put in  fish ladders at their power dams; that  some means should be taken to prevent  pollution of streams with slag from  smelters, and that a further effort  should be made to stock Boundary  Creek and Long Lake.  The officers were asked to bring in a  report regarding proposed amendments  to the game act at the next meeting of  the club.  Many in  the outlying district have  signified their intention of joining the  club and to act as game wardens when  clothed with the proper authority.  The Church of England.

"Other people's Money" which appeared in the Auditorium on Tuesday  evening is one those absurdities that  appear to be popular on the American  stage.
