U. Ships Hteh  Grade Ore���Strike on Blue Jay.  Geo. R. Naden has turned over the  Barbara on a lease and bond to some  local men. Considerable work was  done on the property last year, and  while the boys did not strike it as rich  as the Elkhorn the indications are  sufficiently tempting to induce another  trial this year with a better prospect of  success.  Work at the Oro Denoro has been  temporarily suspended while machinery  is being installed. A number of the  men who have been employed there are  spending their short holiday in this  city. They will return to the mine on  Friday.  The Morrison Mines, Limited, have  met with a temporary check in the  transfer of their property to the  Montreal & Boston Copper company.  East week in Spokane A. H. Ken yon  filed an injunction suit to res tain the  Morrison company from selling the  property to Andrew Laidlaw. Mr.  Kenyon alleges that the trustees of the  company have consumated a deal to  sell the propertv to Mr. Laidlaw for  $24,196,76, whereas its real value is in  the region of $150,000, and that if the  Laidlaw deal goes through the shareholders will Jose a large amount of  money to which they are entitled. John  Hunner, F. H. Oliver, F. R. Fisk, E.  K. Ewin and E. B. Hyde, trustees of  the company are joined as defendauts  in the suit. Judge Belt granted 'a  temporary restraining order with the  proviso that it should become effective  when Mr. Kenyon filed a bond for $5,-  000. As nothing, has been heard of  th'e'borid since it is safe to predict that  the deal will go on.  The Dominion Copper Company has  named a price for their Phoenix properties on a cash basis and if that is  acceptable to the Montreal & Boston  people we may look for a resumption  of work at these properties and at the  Boundary Falls smelter at an early  date.  Geo. Collins, manager of the Athel-  ton announces that operations will be  lesumed at the mine in two weeks. By  that time the snow will be gone to such  an ex.ent *-hat hauling will be possible  from the mine to the Winnipeg spur.  A shipment of twenty-four tons of  ore was made from the E. P. U. to the  local smelter this week. The character  of ore which is being extracted from  I his property at present exceeds in  values any former shipments.  The unprecedented depth of snow in  Rossland has had the effect of shutting  off shipments by waggon from small  mines adjacent to Rossland. The ore  from these properties are used for fluxing purposes by the Northport smelter  and in consequence of this lack of fluxing material the smelter has had to  temporarily close, with the further re  suit that 180 men have been laid off al  the Le Roi mine pending the resumption of work at the smelter. In n:ply  to inquiries acting manager McKenzie  stated that work would be resumed  with a full crew as soon as the smelter  started up. It is generally supposed  things will be running in their usual  way within two weeks time.  Work is being pushed forward on the  Eureka mineral claim, adjoining the  Gold Finch. Up to the present about  $1000 has been spent, principally in  tunnel work. The claim is owned by  local men.  Messrs. Smith of Anaconda, and  Gaunce & Wickwire of Greenwood,  who have a bond on the Trilby claim,  adjoining the E. P. U. property, are  preparing to resume work.  OAED  OF TRADE  Annual Meeting Held Last  Wednesday.  The Secretary's Report Showed The  Board to be in Good Condition.  The contractors on the Don Pedro  are now down about 90 feet. The ore  continues exceptionally high gride  and choice samples discount anything  yet found in the camp.  Diamond drilling on the Volcanic  mine on the north fork of the Kettle  river, has been discontinued for a short  time on account of water.  Mike Kane was in town on Monday  from Phoenix. Mike was exhibiting  some fine specimens of Galena ore  from his Blue Jay property, located  about a mile from Greenwood on the  Phoenix wagon road. A lead was uncovered last weeK which in width  measures from 12 to IS inches of very  fine looking ore. There are two men  working on the property.  The Halen, situated just below A na-  conda, an old time shipper, is enlarging  its crew and preparing to make further  shipments.  Fred Curts, foreman of the Oro  Denoro mine, has resigned his position  and is moving to Rossland.  The Senator mine in Summit camp  will resume shipments to the Granby  smelter next week.  WORK STARTS.  The annual meeting of the Greenwood Board of Trade was held in the  oflice of Geo. R. Naden on Wednesday  afternoon last at 4 o'clock. Quite a  number was present although not so  many as last year when so many matters that it was thought the Board  might successfully take up were being  discussed. The new members were  doubtless surprised to find that many  of their propositions were impractable  and that many others had been already considered by the Board.  The secretary's report covered the  year's work very fully and showed the  membership of the. Board and its individual standing. Several members  have left the Board during Ihe year,  some by resignations and some by removal from the city.  The membership of the Board is  about SO, nearly all of whom are paid  up to the end of the year. ���  The officers elected for the ensuing  year were as follows: L. H. deVeber,  Presidend; T. M. Gully, Vice-Preisi-  dent; W. G. Gaunce, Secretary-Treasurer. Messrs. White, McLean, Naden,  Logan and Grey were elected an advisory council.  While there appears to the public  little work for the Board of Trade to  do, the things that require its attention are many, aud the workof anature  that no person and no other body would  or could discharge.  Emergencies, public matters arise  frequently for local action and no body  can discharge it save a Board of Trade.  ^TheBoardfelt^ that several people"  and firms who were deported deliti  quent should not be so, but the gratification was general that so many  public spirited citizens lived in so  small a town and that the Board was  out of debt.  Mr. Gaunce who had been acting as  temporary secretary for the last seven  months, and who previous to April  last had been secretary for three years  asked to be relieved, but the Board  thought otherwise and insisted on reelection bv acclamination.  The local men holding the bond on  the Roderick Dhu are resuming work  this week, Owing to the depth of snow  and the difficulty of getting in supplies  work had to be suspended during the  winter months. It is the intention of  the owners to push operations vigorously and shipments will be made as  soon as the condition of the roads will  permit.  The West Fork Road Will Be Com  pleted.  Major Megraw, notary public and  mining recorder at Beaverdell, was in  the city on official business the latter  part of last week and returned to Midway on Saturday.  The Major, when asked about the  West Fork road and country in general, said: "Money is available now  for the completion of the West Fork  road to Beaverdell and Carmi. Work  will be commenced just as soon as the  snow is off the ground. E. C. Bates,  road superintendent of Fairview, will  have charge of the work.  The Sally mine at Beaverdell has reduced its force as the roads are now  impassable for the ore teams. The ore  shipped has been exceptionally high  grade and has demonstrated that even  with a fifty mile haul to Midway the  mine can be profitably worked.  Another marvellously rich placer  country has been discovered. It is on  the Nahaani river, near the junction  of Laird  and  Dease  rivers,   in north-  Wedding Bells.  Mr. D. O'Connor,the genial blacksmith  at the Mother Lode mine, and Miss  Minnie Wills.a well known Greenwood  young lady, were united in marriage  on Monday, at the Imperial hotel. The  bride, who looked very charming, was  attended by Miss Eva Scott of Dead-  wood, while Mr. Milton Lehner of the  Mother Lode staff supported the  groom. Rev. Father Bedard tying the  nuptial knot. Only the immediate  friends of the contracting parties were  present. The happy couple took the  afternoon train for Spokane and the  coast cities where the honeymoon will  be spent, followed by the best wishes  of a host of friends in which The  Times heartily joins.  William Fowler, of Providence fame,  will shortly resume operations on the  Defiance.  Chocolates, Jujubes and all kinds of  fresh candies a specialty at Galloway  Bros.  For*y-six applications to be placed  on the voters' list have been received  by the collector of votes for this district. The majority of those applying  are miners, with a fair sprinkling of  other trades and professions. As the  lists closed on March 28th any who had  the misfortune to overlook the notice  will have to wait over until next September to have their names placed on  the list.  DJ. P. McLeod, who has been seriously  ill of pneumonia for nearly three  weeks, is making rapid strides towards  recovery. It will be some time yet before he is able to resume his duties at  his oflice.  Wm.' Powers, of sawmill fame, who  has been in Greenwood this week,  closed a deal yesterday by which he  takes over the ranch of Frank Donald,  three miles from Rock Creek. Mr.  Powers intends putting in extensive  irrigation works and going into farming on a large scale.  F. W. McLaine. the broker and real  estate agent, is offering another block  of stock in the International Coal and  Coke Co. This stock is the best buy  on the market to day.    See him.

The Imperial authorities forwarded a copy of this resolution  to the government of the ancient  colony, and the matter came up  last week for discussion in the  legislature. Premier Bond announced that the time was inopportune to open negotiations with  a view of entering the confederation, and that he found no desire on the part of the people of  New Foundland to cast in their  lot with Canada. In view of  this declaration the matter for  the present at least may as well  be dropped.  at any cost, as well as to take the  precaution of removing any doubt  as to the legality of British ownership of Hudson Bay and surrounding territory.  The Montreal Family Herald  and Weekly Star newspaper is  undertaking a huge advertising  campaign for the purpose of placing- before the world  in general  and   intending-    immigrants  m  England andFrancehave at last  come to an agreement over the  " FFetich" sb 6re~~d i fliculty~ 1 ti New  Foundland. For years this has  been a bone of contention that at  times caused anxiety in official  circles. Under the present arrangement France surrenders her  sovereignty over New Foundland  and receives au indemnity, part  of which goes to the French  propert}' holders along the surrendered shore and the balance to  the French government for surrendering its sovereignty. The  amount total and also the division  is to be left to the judgement of  the Hague tribunal. In addition  to this France is permitted practically a free hand in Morrocco,  and improved facilities in reaching Lake Tchal and other points  in French Central Afraca.  There are also rumors that the  United States government is  sounding the French government  as to the purchase of two islands  in the Gulf of St. Pierre and  Imquelon. Eastern Canadian  papers are up in arms and insist  on Great Britain securing these  United States and Great Britain  iu particular, the great natural  resources of the province of British Columbia and its quaifications  as a desirable place of settlement.  Its'scheme has been endorsed and  is being supported by the Federal  government as well as by the  local government at Victoria, and  railway companies who will profit  by any result achieved are making  liberal contributions. Mr. Williams, the manager of the big  Montreal newspaper, is at present  ou the coast personally superintending the preparations for the  work. It is not unlikely that  this gentleman, or someone representing him, will be in Greenwood at an early date, and it is  therefore in order for the people  of this locality to see that the  Boundary country secures the  prominence that its position deserves. .  It may be worth noting that  the circulation of the Family  Herald and Weekly Star in  Canada is 150,000, with a foreign  circul atiorTof~3400 "(' while" tli at" of  the Minneapolis Journal which is  co-operating wiMi the Star, is  85,000. It is safe to say that this  is the biggest advertising scheme  concerning this country ever attempted, and must, if property  carried out, result iu immense  good to the province at large.  There is no place in Canada  whose resources will furnish more  interesting reading than the  Boundary; its inexhaustible bodies  of low grade ore, its high grade  properties paying from the grass  roots, its timber and agricultural  resources. The importance of  this matter cannot be over estimated and we urge that steps be  taken by the Board of Trade to  have the Boundary properly represented. This is a work in  which all should assist, but in  order that it may be successfully  carried carried out it should be  under the control of some competent man who shall be well  paid for his services, aud we  therefore  suggest  that  the city  #-w  ^?HBS<  TEL,  ERNEST J.

Green, chief commissioner of  lands and works, recently issued a  notice to delinquent pre-emptors of  long- standing- that has been greatly  misunderstood in some quarters. The  notice, as generally understood, was a  demand for all money due on pre-emptions, and that failure to pay the  amount by April 15th would result in  cancellation of the grant. This, however is not the case. It appears that in  1899 Mr. Carter-Cotton issued a notice  to delinquent pre-emptors to pay the  amounts due on their land. Mr.  Green's notice calls the attention of  pre-emptors to the Carter-Cotton order,  with a.further statement that all those  who failed to comply with that order  will have their grants cancelled unless  they contribute by April 15th, 1904.  So that the parties affected by Commissioner Green's notice are only those  whose payments were overdue as far  back as June 22nd, 1899.  The following are the two notices  that have caused the turmoil:  "Notice to Pre-Emptors of Crown  Lands���Attention is hereby directed to  the notice signed by the chief commissioner of lands and works, and dated  22nd of June, 1890, in which all pre-  emptors or purchasers of crown lands  upon which the purchase money remaining unpaid on such lands is overdue, are called upon to make full payment of such balances with interest  thereon if any is due.  And further notice is hereby given  to all persons who have failed t(^ com  ply with the requirements.of said notice that if such overdue balances of  purchase money are not paid on or before the ISth day of April next, the  records or agreements covering such  land will be cancelled.  R. F. Green, chief commissioner of  lands and -works, Victoria, B, C, 25th  February., 1904."  The Carter-Cotton notice is as follows:  "Notice to Pre-Emptors of land���  Notice is hereby given that all pre  emptors or purchasers of crown lands  from whom the purchase money re-  maini ng unpaid on such land is overdue, are required to make full payment  with interest thereon, if any is due,  within ten months of the date of this  notice, failing with their records or  agreements concerning such lands are  liable to cancellation, as provided by  section 38 of the Land Act.

The Myers Creek News of April 2nd  gives thefollowing account of the rich  strike recently made on the Ben Harrison property near that city: "The  news was circulated Thursday morning  that a very rich strike had been made  on the Ben Harrison mine, this time in  the east drift, and in a short time the  whole camp was in a high state of excitement, and many immediately hastened to the mine to see for Themselves  even the editor hail to suspend work  and go up to the mine and take a peep.  On arriving at the mine we found on  the dump several tons of ore taken  from the strike just made, and on  visiting the tunnel we found the. whole  face of the east drift a solid mass of  ore, consisting of sand carbonates and  copper ore, some of which is coated a  beautiful blue with the azureite of  copper The ore just discovered will,  it is said by expert mining men, r.m  high in gold, silver, copper and leud.  Assays will be made at once to ascertain the different values in the ore in  the new strike.  Wall papers, cheaper than Kalsomine  kfSmith"&i McRae's^  bers are assured of a marble monument.  On the manager's motion a committee  of three was appointed lo act in conjunction with the executive as a mail-  aging committee, Messrs. Dill, McBain  and K't'dclilTe being selected. The  committee was instructed by the meeting to interview the council regarding  assistance in renovating the grounds  and the use and repair of the grand  stand, which is at present unsafe arid  unfiit for any purpose except firewood.  Attempts will be made to secure permanent recreation grounds and have  them fenced, so that the club can secure  nancial assistance through admission  fees.  The secretary was instructed to open  a membership list, with the gratifying  result that twenty-seven immediately  enrolled. The managing committee  will institute a vigorous canvas for  members and present appearances indicates a prosperous season in Greenwood for the diamond game.  The meeting dispersed with a hearty  vote of thanks to Ernie Cartier for  the use of the rooms.  COMPANIES' ACT, 1897.  BASEBALL CLUB.  Enthusiastic Organization Meeting-  Officers Elected.  A large aud representative gathering  of the young men of Greenwood met  Thursday night in the Board of Trade  rooms, Windsor hotel, to discuss the  formation of a baseball club for the  coming season. Alex. Robinson was  voted to the chair and the meeting got  down to business in short order in a  way that would have been an eye-  opener to some of the business men  whom it was expected would be present.  In order to bring on a discussion of  the subject a resolution was moved by  Mr. Thomas, seconded by Mr. Dill,  that a club be formed. This opinion  appeared to be so unanimous that discussion was unnecessary, aud the meeting proceeded at once to elect officers  for the club.  The following- gentlemen were put  up for nomination and unanimously  elected as officers of the club for the  coming season: President, E. G.  Warren; Vice President, Julius Ehrlich; Sec'y-Treas., A. E. Thomas.  While Postmaster Frith was elected  manager by a standing vote.  The matter of club fees brought on a  lively disscussion as to the best method  of financing the scheme. It was the  general opinion that the fee of last  year was too high, and that a lower fee  would induce more to come in and give  the club more material for choice in  :ratches. Eventually on a motion by  Mr. Thomas a suggestion made by  Mr. Falconer was adopted, that membership cards be printed and issued to  anyone upon payment of Si. As Mr.  Falconer is on The Times staff his eye  to business was promptly commended.  Ihe fee as eventually decided upon  was: Ordinary members, 51.00; honorary members, 55.01); life members,  520.00.   It may be added that life mem-  At the regular monthly meeting of  the Curling club held las': Tuesday  evening it was decided to hold a dance  as the culminating feature of what has  been a successful and enjoyable season  among the burlers o' '.he stanes.

Clint,  Copper street  James Breen is Talking Again  The Spokesman-Review of Saturdays issue of April 2nd, published the following- interview  with James Breen:  "Tne Dominion Copper company has named a price for which  it will sell its properties in the  Boundary district of British Columbia to the Montreal & Boston  Consolidated company," said  James Breen of the Dominion  company yesterday.  "Reports, however, of a consolidation of the two pioperties  are erroneus. If the Montreal  & Boston Consolidated company  can raise the money to buy the  Dominion group, all well and  good. But we are not ready to  take shares in the new company  in payment.  "The Dominion Copper company is controlled by three interests��� Mackenzie & Mann,  Senator Georg-e Cox and myself.  We have about seven eighths of  all the shares.  "We think we have about as  good a grade of ore as there is in  the Boundary district. In 1901  we planned to build a smelter,  but we dropped that idea, for I  did not believe that the Vancouver, Victoria &  Eastern  rail  way would build then into Phoenix camp. Without a rival line  we should be at the mercy of the  Canadian Pacific ' and I did not  care to take any chances cf building a smelter on such a basis.  The test of time has proven that  I was right in doubting- that the  Hill roads would be constructed  then into Phoenix. It is not  built yet, though right of way  has been purchased. The Hill  road purchased right of way near  Phoenix from us for $25,000 last  fall. In case the road is constructed the Dominion company  plans to build a smelter next  year. It would have an initial  capacity of 500 tons a day.  "There is no truth to the report that I was considering- a  plaOo takiT^  the Montreal & Boston Consolidated smelter ot Boundary Falls,  B. C. I am in no way connected  with that project.  "Steel was laid on the Canadian Pacific's spur to the Dominion group, with the view of  shipping about 10,000 tons of ore  on the dump. However, if-the  smelter is built, we may decide  not to ship, but to treat the dump  ourselves."  GRAND FORKS,--PH0ENIX--GREENW00D  AILY STAGE LINE.!  LeavesJGreenwood 6 a. m.

The weather on Sunday was . not  favorable to a.display of JSa.ster millinery. A cold wind with occasional  showers of rain made such a thing im  possible.' But it in no way interfered  with the church attendance which was  much larger than usual.'' In all the  churches the altars were"profusely decorated with flower's .and the'sermons  were appropriate to:the occasion.  A serious accident happened, at the  Mother Lode smelter on Saturday last.  There was a break in  No. I furnace  'letting the matte run out in the pit  ���where one of the slag cars come in.  After checking the flow of hot metal a  stream of cold water was turned on the  matte which had run in the pit, causing  an explosion. At the time the explosion  occurred fourteen  or fifteen men were  . standing close by,   Marvellous to relate the only  damage done was to A.  Lind who was severely  burned down  one side of the face and neck.    The  accident caused a delay of  about two  hours. '  The Masonic  ball on Monday even-  ��� ing was largely attended and was a  . great success in every way.    The corri-  ���' mittee'who'had charge of the arrange-  'nients can congratulate themselves up" I  'on the result.   The hall was appropriately decorated.   About sixty couples  were in  attendance.     The floor was  good, the lunch  tasty  and  the music  ���excellent.   The latter was provided by  Mr. and Mrs. Bush, of Midway, assisted   by   Messrs.   Webb and   Harris of  Greenwood.  Charles McMicheal, son of S. W.

John Bannerman, who owns and has  been, for some years operating the  ranch next to Mr. Csstleman, near  Boundary Falls, has disposed of his  property to P. Burns & Co. The ranch  lies adjacent to the slaughter house of  Burns & Co. alnd is necessary to their  as a range for the cattle shipped here  to market. Mr.' Bannerman will remain-here until'he disposes of the  balance,,of his property and will then  likely remove to the coast. Notice  his ad.  Among the new ads in The Times  this week is that of the Windsor hotel.  Out of seventeen hotels which Greenwood supports only four of them show  public enterprise enough to put their  card in the paper. Why not help make  The Times a credit to your town, make  it a medium through which to improve  your business. Show the outside world  that you are in business. It costs  money .to run a newspaper. Every  cent spent in advertising is judiciously  used. Now to be honest with yourself,  you would not like to see your town  paper like some other towns send out���  a sickly, pinch faced, half starved rag.  Be mutual', help your paper and it will  do its best to further yottr interests  and promote the general welfare of  the city.

Arthur Black and Charles Rathwell,  who have been connected with the  Great Northern surveying parties for  two years, left Tuesday for Edmonton  to accept positions on the Grand Trunk  Pacific survey staff.  Jerry Powers, who was arrested two  weeks ago at Phoenix on a charge of  robbery alleged to have been committed at Camp McKinney some months  ago, was released from custody Tuesday. Constable Cunningham took  him to Camp McKinney where an examination before Magistrate Sidley  failed to produce i.ny evidence connecting him with the crime. The charge  against him  was  therefore dismissed.  George Redpath, the nine year old  son of station agent Redpath, who has  been seriously ill for two weeks with  appendicitis, is rapidly improving.  The trouble was aggravated by the  presence of an abscess requiring a delicate operation, which was sccceisfully  performed by Dr. Spankie, assisted by  Dr. Oppenheimet,  and  Dr. Gordon of  Phoenix. Considering the nature of  the trouble and the severe operation,  his rapid improvement is considered  most remarkable.  The ladiesof the Presbyterian church  gave a New England supper and concert in the Auditorium on Saturday  evening. From 5:30 until 8 o'clock the  tables were well patronized, and the  demand for beans would have convinced even a New Englander that  Boston is not the only place on earth  that knows how to copk beans���or to  eat them, bythe-way. The concert  after the supper was well attended.  Rev. Mr, McKee acted.as chairman,  Instrumental duets by Mrs. Mc-  Cutcheon and Miss Frezee, and Mrs.  McCutcheon and Mrs. Currie White  were much appreciated. Mr. Gaunce  contributed a short speech and scored  a success as a humorist. Solos were  rendered by Madames McCutcheon and  McKee and Miss Gaunce, and Messrs.  Whiteside and Dalglcish. Miss Gaunce  is a very welcome acquisition to-(he  musical coterie of Greenwood and her  singing is a vocal treat. The ladies of  the Presbyterian church are to be congratulated on the success attending  their supper and concert as a substantial sum was raised to assist them in  their church work.  Thos.
