 warn  1  VI  i  Vol. 10  GREENWOOD, B. C. FRIDAY, APRIL 4, 190?,.  No. W. 50*  A Citizen Points Out That  Business  Needed As Well As Location���Pessimistic But Pertimeirt-  Editor Times *.  Under....the head of Greenwood' interest I would like to say when any  . citizen of Greenwood  is   away   from  home he is, often introgated and the  following dialog-ue usually occurs.  Where is Greenwood ? ' About 10  miles North of the International  Boundary line and 100 miles West of  Rossland in what is termedthe Boundary country.  Is there any agricultural land in that  vicinity 1' Yes, from five to 10 miles  from Greenwood there is a larg-e, area  of farming- land.  How much of a town is Greenwood ?  There are three banks, three or four  mercantile firms which carry a stock  of from 320,000 to 560,000. Numerous  firms with S5;00O to--S10,000 stock.  Seventeen hotels; four of-them steam  heated. Several tailors, blacksmiths,  livery barns, drug stores, cigar and  fruit stores, butcher shops, etc.  Well ! you have, quite a town, what  does Greenwood depend on principally  for business support ? Principally  mining-.  Are the mines close to. the ;:town as  they are at Rossland ? No, the nearest mine is the Sunset which is two  and a half miles distant and they  rauge from that distance to 10 and 12  miles in \a circle.  How, mauy men are employed iu  Greenwood.other than those,employed  in the business houses ? Less than  100 men.  What effort is. being made to draw  the trade from those mines and the  agricultural country which you say is  quite a distance from Greenwood ?  Now Mr. Editor it occurs to me that  Greenwood is not a mining camp any  more than Grand Forks, but is simply  a town surrounded by several mining-  camps and there has been no particular  effort made to secure thai trade beyond  furnishing the mines in a wholesale  way. The individual trade is sadly  neglected. As a miliar said recently,  "The merchants- of Greenwood complain of people at the mines sending to  T, Eaton & Co., for supplies, but it is  really, less trouble for us to send to T.  Eaton & Co., for what we want than to  get it in Greenwood during business  hours kept by Greenwood merchants.  If we should get to town by six p. m.  and have several purchases to make,  unless we find what we want in the  very first store we visit it is soon seven  p. m. and we find it necessary to make  another trip. We have T. Eaton & Co.  catalogues at home, we select just what  we want, it comes promptly and seldom fails to give satisfaction."  Now shouM the V. V. & E. be constructed this summer as we hope it  will, those men probably know very  Wtle about sending to T. Eaton & Co.,  but when out stores are closed up they  will be forced to buy their -supplies  from any little store at outside points  where the proprietor 'does not observe  office hours.  You  may say the clerk who works  from seven a. m. to seven p. m,   works  *   ��� -' "-v V. ,   ' ..  long enough,  which.is quite true, but,  it seems to me. thatJSome kind of arrangements could beanie the sai.i-i as  cigar, fruit auddrug stores, restaurants  and hotels who keep open longer.  Agaiu you may say there is an ordinance against keeping business houses  open after seven p. m, If that is "a  good thing" why not push -'a good  thing" along and close cigar, fruit,  and drug stores, restaurants and hotels  at 7 p. ra. Compel the trade to come  just when we want them aud see where  we will "get off at."  As a matter of fact Greenwood  should be alive town and draw trade  from the whole surrounding country,  and if it cannot get that trade there is  no reason for its eststance. The ad-  mistration and chamber of- commerce  seem to be using- every effort to get  appropriations from the government  for public improvements but tlie merchants are allowing the ��� trade -which is  right under their noses and-which is  really necessary forthe building up of  Greenwood to pass "by unnoticed, unearned'for. . Some arrangement should  also be made to keep the post office  open until 7:30 p. ni, at least.  Greenwood should be metropolitan if  it expects to control the trade of the  country. It takes alL kinds of people  to make the world. It also takes all  kinds of people to make a city. Other  cities recognize this, why no* Greenwood and all pull together. I believe  a floating population helps the appear;  ance of any ' town..;! predict that it  will not be many years if Greenwood  pursues her present policy of- restriction ,and inactivity when the business  people of the country will be comparing Greenwood and Grand Forks.  Grand Forks, witli.no natural re-'  sources close at hand, no mines, no  payroll, no commercial club, m.o nothing but the matchless energy of her  people,'who do not care where a dollar  comes from so they get it| is a. thriving  little city able to take care of herself.  Then _they _will_ point... to_ Greenwood  completely surrounded with mines, big  pay roll, good banking facilities, commercial club to-entertain the guests of  the city who are -good respectable  people, and a big policeman with instructions to run anyone out of town  'who does not come highly recommended; a town which had; a good start  forced apon them, now,*nbt able to control the trade one mile,from town ; a  town where the dogs will baric at any  belated traveller who might appear on  the street after seven p. hi. The town  will be like the broken-down gambler,  they will still have .ther system but  "broke like a dog."  This may appear to be rather a pes-  simistic prediction to some, bnt I really  consider we are now well on our way  to that condition, and it only remains  to be seen if our citizens are equal to  the '..emergency 'and will' auake the  almost heroic effort necessary to build  up a city and com mciice by taking care  of the trade now in sight which justly  belongs to Greenwood.  H. B. MADDEN.  The Annual Meeting of the  Board of Trade.  1  Secretary's Reoort in Detail For The  Past Year.  .���The annual meeting of the Greenwood Board of Trade was held in. the  offices of the president, G. R. Naden,'  on Wednesday afternoon last, A large  number were present and a considerable amount of routine   work   trans-  attached showing .'-entire receipts and  expenditures 'for.i vthe year, with  vouchers for*each item,  ���, V   ;"-  The present;/membership of the  board numbers 25 persons and firms.  There would appear to be other busi-  ness housesln the town that ought to  be represented.  During the year I have made payments aggregating ��27.50 on the obligation due the'former secretary, leaving  a balance due him at this date of  $52.40.  This has been providied for in measure by two zealous members of the  board having advanced the same in  full'to Mr. Gosnell and being credited  thereon the amount -of their own  quarterly dues as they mature.  There was, in consequence of the  change made in the year of the Associated Boards, a double charge  against the treasury for membership  fee in said association during the past  year. Today our fees stand paid until  March,-1903.  There are no debts of any kind  against -the Board and a cash balance  on hand of S6.92.  Respectfully submitted,  W. G. GAUNCE.  Secretary-Treasurer,  CHICKEN HATCHERY  The old way was too slow for alderman  Kirkwood. The idea of keeping a good  hen out of-business for three weeks  just to hatch a dozen chicks did not  agree with his progressive ideas. So  the alderman devised a patent incubator to be run "by hot water, and today has chicken seeming by the score.  The judicious'use of two pails of hot  water daily has yielded him nearly two  hundred little chickens. A down cast  wood-chopping frolic, ot s. Missouri  corn husking isn't, iu it with the time  the little fellows had in trying to see  who would get out first.

To The Presides y asd Members  of the Greenwood Board of Te-a.de.  t Gentlemen : t^h-five the honor to  present herewith my annuaL report as  secretary of the Greenwood Board of  Trade,  Although the past year-lias not been  even t ful in the li istory of the Board  still there has been a lot of detail.-work  to attend to, some of whichhas already-  borne good fruit and some other of  which holds promise for the future.  The amount of correspondence with  the different departments of the provincial " and "federal" governments~re-  garding roads, general: and special  appropriations, mail service, appointment oE judge, the stocking with fish  of Christina Lake and the equipment  of a local company of; mounted rifles,  has entailed considerable work.  Everywhere our requests have been  met with courtesy arid an evident desire to gratify our wishes wherever  possible. The provincial government  has at length conceded the rights of  the Boundary country to larger  representation in the legislature and  in the near future the Boundary  Creek valley under the name of the  Greenwood riding will liave the high  privilege of having a voice on the  floors 'if the provincial legislature.  In June last year an issue of 10,000  copies of an annual report was published. Of these 1,500 were distributed  in London, England, 1,500 at the Glasgow exhibition and 3,500 at the Pan-  American exposition at Buffalo.  During tbe year our board suffered a  severe loss in the removal by death of  one of its most active and influential  members, the late J. W. H- Smythe.  Although the past year has been,  somewhat depressed iu business circles  the membership of the board haa been  particularly faithful and prompt in  payment of quarterly dues and z.t present the sum total of arreages is S10.  The thanks of the board are due to  Mr. W. G. McMynn for a contribution  tothe treasury, as well as to the City  council for 325.00 payment of J. R.  Brown's Ottawa expenses re appointment of judge, and S25.00 towards expenses of delegation to the late meeting of the associated Boards of Txade.

This troup of Phoenix  citizens are making a tour of the  Boundary in the interest of the hospital at Phoenix. The show was a  Little slow in getting under way and it  was about 8:45 when the curtain went  up-and revealed a circle of 16: colored  gentlemen with the lofty Judge, Williams in the centre and Hemenway and  Flood at the ends.  "The chorus singing was-good-and-  some of the local hits were-excellent.  Some clever character sketches were  introduced and the cake walking was  immense. Little Gladys Harvey the  clever child artist of Greenwood assisted and made herself if possibLe a  greater favorite than ever. Her singing and dancing were bot h good and  she was recalled several times."  The make up of the coonnesses in  the cake-walk revealed the art of the  milliner and modiste.   '  The entertainment was far above  the average for amateurs and must  have been the result of severe work  and training. A handsome sura was  netted for the charitable object of the  entertainment. '  BASE BALL  The base ball season opened at Athletic Park, Monday last, between two  picked sides under the Captaincy of  Miller and Dill. What the final result  might'have been cannot be told. Bach  side claims to have had the other side  going when their only bat brolce,,  Heavy batting by Embree, base stealing by Hallett and slow running- by  "White were the features of the event. \  Of the total of 69 runs made, almost  equally divided, most were secured by  falling over the home plate just as the  catcher dropped the ball entrusted to  him. One sensational hit by Dill scored his side a base and better.  Dr. McRae seated on a cream-colored  cayuse and with blue overalls on, safely umpired the game behind a wire  fence.  When the Jones syndicate bought up  the Arlington-Burns and Riverside  group recently the people of Greenwood believed that they had made a  big stroke in acquiring the first-named ^  property, but few knew of the merits  of the last named proposition. They  knew that an expenditure of between  $10,000- and $15,000 had shown the  Arlington to be one of the promising ���  properties of the" camp, and believed  that if the late Mr. Bielenberg had  lived its great surface showings and  ore exposures would long ere this have  been, so far developed as to justify the  belief that a great mine was to be there,  added to the list of its next door neighbors the Mother Lode and the Sunsst.  The present owners however, as. if  satisfied that such was the case are  directing their energies to showing up  the Riverside group. Within a ,few  weeks a force of seven men under John  Johns haye made a great change in  the appearance of that property, and  have already put it in nomination for  a prominent place on the list of the  big. things of the Boundary. Mr.  Johns reports the disclosure of a very  fine ledge of high grade ore and has  over 1000 tons ready for the smelter'  with the fitness of the waron toad for  heavy traffic.  "What our own people are so slow to -  discover however strangers are quick  to detect. Recently a correspondent  of the Seattle Mimes, the biggest daily  on the North Pacific coast, after making a round-up of this section, has this  to say of the camp-in general, and of  these properties in particular.  "American capital and American  enterprise are coming in to the Boundary country. No part of British Columbia has grown in the last four years  as has this section, increasing in that  time from less than 1,000 to more than  6,000 people. Slowly the American  people are becoming aware of the possibilities of this part as a mining and  smelting center. The Great Northern-  Railway now building up the Kettle  River valley is getting here as fast as  possible. Generally we say the Great  Northern gets to any place aa fast as  m en and money will do it, but in this  instance we aay as fast as Grand Forks  and the Canadian Pacific will allow.  Every conceivable obstacle is thrown  in the way of the Great Northern to  keep it out of Boundary Creek and  Greenwood. Between the Crow's Nest  coal fields and the smelting concerns  of the Boundary the line of the Great ���  Northern will be so constructed as to  grades that it will place the Canadian  Pacific at a" great disadvantage in  hauling coal and coke, and corporations, like men, are jealous things.  Bat Hill is getting here. And with his  interest in the country appears to have  begotten a greater interest in the  American capitalist. For years some  .New York men have been quietly working away on the Mother Lode mine,  just west of town, until now they have  one of the biggest mines and oneof the  Continued on page three.

Green wood has always been a great  patronizerof outside celebrations. ��� The  people of this city have nothing of  narrowness iutheir make-up and whenever 6'ccats'On arises sends -binulrcds to  the sports of other towns. -Last year  they seiit.large;nuitil>crs to Midway on  tlie 2+th of May and to Grand Forks on  July 1st: There is a feeling in the  town that-Greenwood should now he  willing tb play host and that Grand  Forks and Midway and Phoenix  would ' be glad 'to reciprocate in  the roll of guest. ' With that in view  steps have been taken to provide a  grand celebration event for May 24th.  There is-no good reason why Greenwood should always continue to concede her neighbors the exclusive right  to this or that public holidrry. A little  selfishness, at least self-interest hurts  neither-man no coniinuiity. It is very  agreeable to have one's neighbor's  concede your generosity bnt there is a  possibility of carrying the generous instinct too far.  Be jnst before generous is a good  policy for individual or people. That  does not preclude being generous while  being-just.  menace to both Vancouver and Victoria. Ferries at any time are unfavorable for jjreat traffic and the passage  of a dangerous strip of water once the  sea coast has been reached will be a  deterrent to trade. .     .       /  We opine that a city .will spring up  at the terminus of the railway that will  con trol not only the trade of the great  interior along the line, but which wiU  be.an active competitor for the growing northern trade for which both  Vancouver aud Victoria are at present  struggling.  Railways are not particularly generous corporations and if a citv can possibly be built at Bute Inlet or thereabouts that will be to the Canadian  Northern what Vancouver ia to the  Canadian Pacifictliere would appear to  be no good reason why the' trade of  land mid water .should not combine at  that point.  These observations are mere speculation on an event some distance in the  future however and to the knowing  ones may appear invalid.

Today   in-the  vicinity  of Greenwood  there is oae fiirnace reducing- 450 tons  of ore clail}*-, another of equal capacity-  ready- to operate   within   a few   clays,  and stilL another equally large almost  ready. "Within 3 miles of town these 3  furnaces will be smelting- 1300 to 1500  tons of ore taken from the mines within.  3 miles in another direction.    Then at  the Granby,   4   furnaces of  1000 ions  daily nominal  capacity, arc   reducing*  the ores taken from  the great Granby  quarries less than + miles away. A daily  production and reduction of nearly 2500  tons of copper-gold ores implies unprecedented progress forthe Boundary  Country where 3 years ago there was  scarce a ton of o re on the dumps.

A RIVAL  We entertain the "belief that the construction of the Canadian Northern  railway will not do for Victoria what  what that city is fain to believe it will.  Victorians are exultant in the hope  that the building of the gr at north  country road will make of the capital a  great commercial city. We wish Victoria the very best of good-luck and  prosperity but we cannot see in the  building- to the coast at Bute Inlet of  another trans-continental railway, any  prophecy of the future up-building  thereby of Victoria's commercial importance.  1 SMOKE ? ?

Ha.rrison and Bacpha'rd, have just ar.1  rired in London after ten months spent  tight avray from civilization in the  shooting oi elephants, rhinoceri, gir-  raffes, and hippopotami in .Africa.  Raging lions prowled around their  eii-ca-inpitientat night, "rhinos" started  up in front of them here-and'there, as  they pushed on with their force oi black  carriers, and alligators gazed at tbant  irora.rivers and pools.'-'One night a  ,lion Was driven oS With .firebrands,  hastily.snatched up, bntonly. after he  had fastened his teeth into the: flesh pf  icalf beLonging- to the party.' .  "We started from the coast at the  end of April,1'.said Mr. Harrison,, "and  pushed out into the interior of Ang-ola.,  south-west Africa.   '������-..-.
