We wish -to. express the gratification which it affords us to know that  'da. the head of the important department of mines, you are making yourself personallyvacquainted-with thei  resources-and..'requirements��� of the'  various mining districts. Believing  that the .knowledge acquired, will be  used to 'eiiicotfrage the*chief industry  of the province. We trustfthat brief  though your stay must necessarily be,  you will take awa.y- pleasant, recollections of your visit to Greenwood and  ;that you will: take ^advantage of the  opportunity.:to.see the various mines  and ���melter's iu^he vicinity1 pf the city  #o as to become more fully impressed  -witK the valuW and importance of the  industries of tHe district.   The govern-  of the. assize court held here. (The  extract referred to urged the appointment of Mr. Cunningham as mining  recorder thus, relieving Mr. McMynn  of this portion of his multifarious  duties.)  STIPENDIARY MAGISTRATE  For several years the business men  of the city have been anxious to secure  the establishment of a small debts  court, but it was impossible to secure  anyone to preside over this court.  This difficulty might be obviated by  the' appointment of Mr, McMynn as a  stipendiary magistrate with authority  to hold small debts court sittings with-  in:tjie city. There is no stipendiary  magistrate residing in the district, and  the appointment of one would not only  be a oonvetiienceto busiuess in secur-  ing'the small debts court, but cases  often arise outside the. city that could  be promptly adjudicated upon by a  stipendiary magistrate.  WAGGON ROADS  .Wagon roads are an important factor  in encouraging the development of outlying, mining- camps. Both-, Copper  and West Copper camp, to the west of  Dea.dwood camp, are handicapped by  the lack of a good waggon road."There  are some splendid properties in both  camps that are being developed and  we would respectfully urge the necessity of making provision: for the extension of the Deadwood camp road to  these camps. Attached hereto is a  petition from the mine owners and  others interested in the West Copper  camp, which we have been asked to  submit to you for the early consideration of the government. We are  pleased to learn that the Boundary  district 'has been fairly treated in the  apportionment of the vote for the  Rossland: district. There are many  improvements needed on the various  waggon roads, particularly those leading to Long Lake and Kimberley  camps, but we have every confidence  that Mr. McMynn, the government  agent, ^wilLdp_hjs^bestw iih the, money s  mentfof^whiefry6itarsia,memberfcan  do much towards encouraging mining   placed at his dI8posal in making these  indotherinduitries incident  theretb. ^improvements.

We note that S27,-  250, was included in the estimates for  the district of East Yale, and we  understand that part of this large appropriation was intended for the completed of the Weal Fork road. In the  interests of those who have invested  their money in the district, and with a  view to securing the opening up of one  of the richest mining sections of the  province, we strongly urge the government should lose no time in securing  the completion of this very important  and long delayed public work.  There are other matters that we  might bring to your attention, but we  dp not wish to weary you with numerous wants that are more or less incidental to every growing district. We  again extend to you a cordial welcome.  The city, the mines and the smelters,  are open for your inspection. We trust  that you will take away pleasant re- j  collections oi your visit and that you j  will come again and come often. J  Oreenwood, B. C, August 14th, A.D. j  1902.  GREENWOOD BOARD OF TRADE,  Geo. R. Naden, President.  W. G. Gaunce,  Secretary.  Hon. Col. Prior in reply said that it j  was a- little over a year since he first  visited this beautiful city. He was  then much impressed with it and looked forward to revisiting Greenwood on  this trip. He had been most hospitably treated since coming here. His  was/not a political mission. As minister of mines he was: simply giving  the people an opportunity to tell of  their requirements. He congratulated  Greenwood.upon having less grievances than any other place he had visited.  This was perhaps not because the  grievances did not exist but that because he found here a lot of level  headed business men who believed  they could be more successful by pressing one or two real grievances than  by bringing up numerous unimportant  details.  He considered the department of  mines the most important in this province and he was anxious to doevery-  thirig in his power to promote the  mining industry. He came to the  mines of B. C. 30 years ago and had  been more or less connected with them  since then.  Taking up the subject matters of the  address he said that he had been very  forcibly reminded wherever he went  that the root of all mining evil was the  two per cent tax.'I am not afraid to say  this that the two per cent is an inequitable tax which bears most heavily on  the low. grade.mines. The difficulty is  to find out a better system and your  mining men suggest nothing but its  abolition, but we must have revenue.  After I can get back to the coast I will  bring the matter before my colleagues  and if we have the ability, (our opponents say ,we haven't) to see any way  out of the difficulty, we will certainly  do every thing possible tp assist in removing the causes ! which retard the  mining industry." ��� r  Col. Prior then referred to the labor  situation.     He said the eight hour law  was here  to  stay.    He had met Geo.  Dougherty,   secretary    of    the   local  Miners   union   and   president   of the  district organization that morning and  found   him   an   intelligent    educated  gentleman.     If   labor   unions always  had such men at tlieir head he felt sure  there would be  no strikes and he was  glad to find that there never had been  any-this-rtistrict.-=-He-hoped-that-there  would be no labor  troubles during his  tenure of   office,  and if they  had to  come   he   hoped   that   employers and  employed would refer their differences  to arbitration.     He was glad that the  people of  Greenwood    were   satisfied  with  what the  government  had done  for   the   schools.     He   found   that   a  government building  was badly needed  here  and  he had  telegraphed Mr.  Wells asking that work be commenced  on the court house at once.   There had  been some fear'expressed    that   the  court house  might  be built elsewhere  but , there was  no   earthly chance of  that.    "The government realizes" he  said "that Greenwood is a town situated  among  magnificent mines, and is  bound to become  au   important city.  The high reputation which the address  gave the local agent Mr. McMynd was  gratifying to himself but he could assure them that Mr. McMynn  stood   no  higher in their estimation   than he did  with the government.    He would refer  the requests for the  rearrangement of  the offices to the attorney-general  and  unless  there was some strong reason  he felt sure the change would be made.  In reference to roads  he promised to  bring the requests to the  notice of the  chief commissioner and made a similar  reply to that given  the deputation in  reference to the West Fork road.  He closed by thanking them for  their cordial welcome. When the  political battle came, he would be glad  to come here and address them on  political issues.  Hon. Col. Prior was given a vote of  thanks and three hearty cheers and the  meeting adjourned.  Friday morning the minister visited  school and court houst- sites, also the  city hospital and the Sunset smelter  and Midway. He left by the afternoon train for Nelson. From there he  will proceed to the Sloean and Lardeau  districts.  0  i r  Direct   Connection    With  train to and from Spokane.  W TWENTY-FOUR HOURS  Regular Service Established on Road  to Republic-  Passengers leaving Greenwood in  the morning can reach Spokane at 5:45  the same evening. Passengers leaving Spokane at 9:25 in the'morning  can reach Greenwood the same evening. Percy S. Stanhope has placed a  fast stage on the route between Greenwood and Curlew. This stage leaves  Greenwood in the morning in time to  meet the Spokane bound train at Curlew and remains at Curlew until the  arrival of the train from Spokane in  the afternoon. The distance to Curlew  is about 21 miles and the trip is made  in three hours. A change of horses is  made both ways at Midway wliere Mr.  Standhope has a stable.  The 6tage line and jjrunniug of regular trains on the great Northern to  Republic make a big difference in  travelling to and from the Boundary.  It saves 24 hours to all points east and  west.  This travel will make serious inroads  into the business of the C. P. R. and  will also affect the hotel business of  Rossland where all passengers were  forced to wait to make connection with  the trains.  The new service began on August  15th."**''"    '  Death of the   Founder of  the Town of Midway.  H Hill  YEARS 1  Organized the Adams British Columbia Company.  Local and Personal.

The Golden Gate wnich adjoins the  London is situated north of the Sunset  ii.nd Crown Silver mines.  Hugh McCutcheon is being congratulated upon the arrival of an assistant collector of customs. A wire  from Kamloops where Mrs. McCutcheon is visiting friends, brought tbe glad  tidings to the proud father.  A Montreal press dispatch advises  tlie sudden death on 11th inst, at Sed-  wick, Maine, U.-S. A., of Capt. R. C.  Adams, for many years a well-known  resident in Montreal.  Ten   years   ago    Robert    Chamblet  Adams, under the guidance  of the late  H. P. Palmerstou, Midway's first town-  site  agent,   visited   the  City   of Paris  mineral claim,  in White's camp, and  the Old  Ironsides and   Knob  Hill   in  Greenwood camp.    In   those  comparatively early days in   the  history of the  Boundary it would not have been difficult to have procured the   latter claims  at a figure that now would be properly '  re'garded   as   ridiculously   low.      But  there was little or nothing iu the early  nineties to induce capitalists   to invest  in   prospects   in    an   isolated  district,  such as the Bounbary then was.   Capt.  Adams   did,   however,   think''well'of  what was then known   as Eholt's.'and  in the strong belief that   an important  town would be built up at   Midway induced other Montreal   men to join him  in  the   purchase of Eholt's.    Midway  was platted  in   1S93  in the summer of  which year the first lot  sold there was.  sold to John Douglas.  .   Ivater' Capt.   Adams   succeeding  in  organizing, in. England    a   company  known as the Adams British Columbia  company, the object of which included  the   acquirement   :uu!   development of  mineral claims.    This company  spent  a lot of money in developing claims in  the   Sloean,   at   Osoyoos,   and   in the  Boundary," but unfortunately, without  making any return to its shareholders.  Still,   under   the   direction    of   Capt.  Adams as  managing  director, persistent efforts were  made to win the success it merited.    In   this \vay:���both in  connection with   the  endeavor to build  Iip~a"prdiipei;ou s"'Towri^a~t~"MidWnyiand"'  with  mining operations Capt. Adams  labored hard to invest capital in British  Columbia enterprises.      Notwithstanding that he m��t with little but failure, -  he deserves credit for   lii^ good intentions,   For  he   showed   faith in the province  by   investing   in   it   much of his  own   capital   as   well as  by inducing  others to follow his example.  In his private   life Capt. Adams was  genial find sociable; a   much-travelled,  well-informed man; a  most  entertaining     conversationalist,    disposed    to  hospitality and taking n   keen interest  in certain favorite   pursuits.    He  took  a father's pardonable pride in his only  surviving   son,    Walter   C.   Adams,  a  mining   engineer   well   known   in   the  Sloean.    The news of his death scarce  ly conies a surprise, since it   was quite  evident   ot   late  years   that physically  he was failing.    Kequiescat in peace.  A. W. Strickland, assistant manager  of the Bank of Montreal received a  telegram on Tuesday informing him  of the sudden death of his mother at  the family home at Lakeside, near  Peterborough, Ont. Mrs. Strickland  was about 65 years of age. Mr. Stride  land has the sympathy of a large circle  of friends in his sad bereavment.  Coronation Day was spent quietly in  Greenwood A large number took in  the excursion given by the local lodge  A. F. & A. M. to Midway. Many  spent the day along the banks of Kettle  river and Boundary creek, while others  witnessed the game of ball between  Greenwood and Midway, the latter  winning.  Dr. Montizambert.

The best friends of British Columbia both at Ottawa and Victoria are  those who know the province best. At  the federal capital, it is difficult to get  auy one to enthuse over anything connected with the Pacific province,  except those who came and Saw and  were conquered. There are many  met) in the Dominion parliament who  do not know this province, but stranger  still there are some men iu the provincial house who are ignorant of the  resources and possibilities of British  Columbia. We even had minister of  mines who considered they had fulfilled the duties appertaining to their  office when they drew their pay, attended afternoon teas and stood off as  best they could the importunities of  the chronic kickers from the mining  district. No minister imbued with  any sense of responsibility can travel  from Golden to Greenwood without  being a better citizen, more enthusiastic in his country's interests. It is  a graed and glorious country uotwith-  The action of the prosecuting attorney of Ferry county in attempting  to confiscate the Hot Air Line, because  the majority of stock in the company  is held by Canadians contrary to the  anti-alien ownership law should be an  object to those Canadians who think  that investments on the other side  are more profitable than those of their  own country. The merits of the dispute which is effectively tying up the  Hit Air Eine is a matter for the courts  to adjudicate upon, but if a railway  can be harrassed by a law such as in  force in the State of Washington so  can every other company similarly  situated. The Northport smelter, the  Republic mine, and several other properties are controlled by Canadians  who can tie filched out of their holdings if the law is invoked.  It is difficult to understand why a.  progressive state should keep such an  absurd law on its statute books. It  has already prevented the expenditure  of foreign capital iu the state, and the  action of the Ferry county- attorney is  likely to make outsiders more chary  regarding investments there.  E. W. Monk of Phoenix has been  appointed local agent of the Hamilton  Powder company to succeed E. Wool-  rich.

OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO*   , The people of Rossland took a rather  unfair advantage of Col. Prior during  l]ia visit there. The hospitality of the  men in the golden city ia unbounded.  Whenever a .famous man cornea to  their city tttfcjri jrine him and dine him.  tjlany a good man has goat down before Rossland coast beef and wine and  political reputationo hare been lost at  the baaquettihg table. Col. Prior  having- beard of the Rossland banquets  at the outset expressed his pleasure  that it was hia good fortune to be  there. ��� So the mining men got the  minister of mines' there and they told  him the truth. Now someone has said  that he who makes truth disagreeable  commits high treason against virtue.  Col. Prior is a member of a government that needs several things very  badlT. ' It needs a' majority in the  legislature, it needs the confidence of  the public and it needs money to carry  on the affairs of the country. Previous governments have been piling up  deficits and no amount of ingenuity in  inflicting taxes will make both ends  meets. Taxation is a peculiarly unpleasant thing! anyway. No.matter  How fair or equitable people are bound  tp complain. ., Expediency is generally  the watchword with modern statesmen.  The government says "we need money  to run thia this blooming old province.  We'll get it honestly if we can, but  we'll g*t it anyway. The easiest way  to get it is the best way and what can  be easier than a big mining company !  Speak to a member of the government,  tell him-all about, the iniquity of the  two per, cent, tax and he will agree  with every word you say, but he always has an excuse to offer. "We  need the money and where else c*n we  get it ���'?���-:-���'-'..   The Rossland fellows considered that  as Col. Prior was new at the business  of administering the office of minister  of mines he would be more easily impressed. After loading him up with  good things to eat and better things to  drink they poured their, tale of woe into his ears. It was a reritable symposium of logical arguments against  the iniquitous inequitableness of the  two per cent tax. First came Edmund  B. Kirby the heavy weight; ~cif the War  Eagle and Centre Star. He traversed  history and ��� literature back to The-  mistocles to find'epigram metaphor,  invective and several other strong  things with which to excoriate the two  per cent tax. The two per cent tax is  a stone wall to prosperity, he said.  Will the government of British Columbia take down this barrier and enable us to revive mining in Rossland ?  But the gallant colonel thonght of that  big overdraft in the bank and said  nothing.  William Thompson manager of the  Rossland Great Western allied mining  properties called up the spirit of Sir  John A. McDonald and intimated to  Col. Prior that as a good tory he ought  to be ashamed of himself. Sir John's  good tillicums Charlie Mcintosh and  Mayne Daly were both against the  two per cent tax and why shouldn't  Col. Prior another of Sir John A. McDonald's friends and trusted lieutenants be against it ? He talked directly  to the Colonel and said that with such  a tax there could be no Treadwcll'a in  B. C. It was difficult to withstand the  spirit of the dead with the eloquence  of the living but that overdraft makes  cowards of even gallant colonels. But  the unkindest cut of all was Chas. V.  Jenkins, the financial representative  of the War Eagle company. Mr.  Jenkins as an accountant has become  famous. He can make a,meal on figures and enjoy it. He turned loose on  the minister of mines, took his own  report and the statistics it contained  and a whole lot of other figures and  turned them upside down and inside  out, with the result that he demonstrated beyond a shadow of a doubt that  taxation eats one-fifith of the total  mine product. Mining . history has  demonstrated the wisdom of exempting mities from taxation',, until the industry is firmly fixed. ' The mineral  tax might well be sacrificed for the  benefits which follow a policy of fostering the business of mining.  Col. Prior heard all ������ this and much  more and said nothing. The truth is  that the mining industry is an indulgent milch cow that feeds the hungry at  the coast. So long as the people of  the  interior  take   little    interest   in  politics and content themselves with  growling at existing conditions so  long will the cow be stripped. The  remedy is in their hands. All they  have to do is to send men down to  Victoria and they would soon discover  another way of covering that overdraft.  Dr. A. O. McRae has returned from  Calgary where he occupied the Presbyterian pulpit for three Sundays.  COMPANIES ACT. 1897.  IHE MORRISON MINES,  (Non-personal Liability.  Ltd.

When the strike was declared, Mr.  Johnson wisely decided not to depend  upon the promises of the coal com pan y  to supply a limited quantity of coke,  prefering- to close down at once to  dragging- on from clay to do with unsatisfactoryresults. ������It---rcq-uircs-100-toas  Protests 'Against Industry Being at  Mercy of one Company.  Paul Johnson, M. E., superintendent  of the Greenwood smelter who is visiting the coast was interviewed by the.  Victoria Colonist. To the newspaper  man Mr. Johnson expressed regret  that, owing to the strike at Fernie, he  had been obliged to suspend operations  at the smelter on June 2, since which  time the furnaces have been cold and  the large stall of skilled work men has  scattered lo seek employment elsewhere. Thai was one of t.:e most unfortunate features of the chj.sc-down.as  of coke per clay to" supply the smeller,  and Mr. Johnson felt it would be impossible for the coal company to furnish that quantity if the strike lasted  for any length of time. Subsequent  vents have proved the wisdom of his  decision, as on" :;f'c~ another of the  other smelters were obliged to close  after struggling along intermittently  with a short sapply of coke.  The Greenwood smelter, which has  a capacity of 300 tons daily, will resume work as soon as a supply of coke  is assured, and lliat is expected���uow  that the strike i.s at an end���by the  1st of Saptember. Meanwhile tho. company lias not been idle, development of  the Mother Lode has progressed steadily and three or four glory holes have  been opened, which will greatly facilitate the getting out of the ore, so that  whek   work   is   resumed, tin-.12,000-tou  ore bins uf the smelter   will   always he  wall filled.  Besides smelting the company's ores,  Uie Greenwood smelter treats the ores  from many ue ;.-.'-'.;���/ mines, among  which are those of the British Columbia mine, Summit camp, the Snow-  shoe mine, Phoenix c-uup, the Winnipeg, Golden Crown, Kiug Solomon  anil others.  With the coal company again working its mines to their full capacity,  there should be no shortage of coke  and the mines should resume full shipments. There is therefore no very  great reason for the depressing reports  which have been sent out from the  mining camps, as the dull times, consequent upoi: l':e coal strike, was but a  temporary, if unfortunate, check to the  mining industry, from which it will  quickely recover. .  The mines of the Boundary district  are all right, for although the ores are  low grade, they are illimitable in quantity, and need only reasonable rates  for coke, transportation and treatment  to make them permanently profitable.,  What the country requires, said Mr.  Johnson (and Capt. Gifford heartily  concurred with him) is competition in  cpal mining. It is deplorablti that the  whole mini tig industry should be at  the mercy of one coal monopoly, which  at any moment, through some trifling  dispute with its employees, may paralyze the'business of'the country. If  two or.more coal companies were operating, a strike on one Would not be.  likely to tie up the others, and the  smelters would be enabled to continue  working.-Another reason why coni-  piilitisn should be encouraged is the.  fact- that while the Crow's Nest Coa,-  company, lives to the letter of the law  in supplying coat at S2 a, ton, the  quality of coal supplied at that figure  is generally so inferior, that people  prefer to pay a higher price for a better grade. Then the company is not  limited by its contract with the government . as to the price of coke, and consequently can charge what it likes.  Again, the higher, price which it can  .obtain jor coke in the United States  often tempts the company to ship the  bulk of its output across the line to the  detriment of the Canadian smelters;-It  lias been estimated by a competent  Authority that the Crow's Nest company has in its deposits $144,000,000,-  000 worth of coal at $2 per ton, so that  even at that price, it must eventually  make millionaires of every one of its  directors. A corporation with such a  g-lgantic monoply should br brought  under, control of the government, so  that the interests of the. province would  be safe-guarded.  A proposition is. now on foot to develop the coal measures at Blairmore,  and smelter and mine owners are hoping that it wi 11 take definite shape.  There is. also a report that J. J. Hill  has some intention of going into the  coal mining business,- which,.might  still further relieve the situation. : The  C. P. R. has acted very fairly in; the  way of transportation rates on ore,  'c^nrfid'Tcolc^'aiM^s^bih^every thing"  possible to assist in the development  of the country.  is  il ����'# *��(*  H *S # # # * * tl' * v v K*'!' * !|f f'J- * ���� # <S # * * * * S'  !
