The convention was a moat  bu&ccssful one. The action of Preai-  dent Dougherty in connection with the  settlement of the Fernie strike was  hfKrtily endorsed ; and. the following  resolution was passed :.  "Wfcereas, the miners of Ladysmith  and Comox coal mines have shown the  true spirit of unionism by refusing-to  be deprived of their liberty as British  subjects; and  " Wltireis, -Dunsmuir ha��S reifused to  htaxnp^ioj*s{the privilege of brganiz.';  ' art^;^^,jS;^...*:*r.:'>;-\,J;'v --;;*- a.   ..-,.  ^Vfa&ea^by liis^acbitrary action, in  j closing..the..mipes. at-iLady smith and-  feombx, heha's d'epriyeaa;. large1 nura*'  iber of men'xSfctlie right to earn a live-  Hhood: therefore,-be it'   .".,...,....   .  .i.

Dougherty, Greenwood.  It was finally decided to hold the  next annual district convention at  Nelson; Greenwood being the second  choice.-' !.!,-., .1 i  A resolution was unanimously  agreed'toi heartily endorsing the action  of ex-president Dougherty in obtaining the recent settlement of the strike'  at the Fernie coal mines.  The'convention which came to a'  close about, four o'clock Friday afternoon, was marked throughout by great  cordiality and unanimity, and' pro veil  a jnoat successful gathering in every  way.  the officers elected  are   tried   and  true men in unionism and will give  gijich strength to the organization. Of  th<^m all, perhaps, the secretary, Geo.  Potigherty, is Ihe most widely known,  ljlls recent action in  assisting to settle  the Fernie difficulty  having brought  him    into      favorable      prominence  throughout the Dominion.  'An idea of the streng'th of the W. F.  pf M;  in this section may be gained  from the fact that the convention of  District Uniou No. 6, just closed, ic-  presented no less than 2,250 members.  It's the E. P. U. mines this week.  Laat week assays .of; providence ore  ran over fitfoOO to the ton. This week  15. P. U. ore does not run so high but  there is more of the high grade stuff.  At a dejith of 70 feet in the shaft, stuff  that looked .like corrugated zinc was  encounter?*-. It was assayed and tarn-"  ed but to be a telluride running 173  ounces in gold and over 1200 ounces in"  ���liver. The ten inch vein is.well impregnated with the tellurium. Tellu-  rides have been; found in other high  grade properties in the district but not  in such quantities as appear in the E.  P. U. shaft. Mr. McVicar and his associates who have the property under  bohil anf taking ore out of this shaft  and also but of a 32 foot drift which is  running towards the Marjorie another  property recently purchased by them.;  This drift is now less than 40feet from  the Marjorie line and the vein is holding strong. A 30 ton car will be shipped early in May.  There are now 52 men on the payroll  of the Nev��:; Fairview ; Corporation,  Fairview, Okanagan, B.C., at the  Stemwinder mine, stamp mill, and  cyanide works. It is stated that all  the 40 stamps in the mill are dropping  and that the cyanide plant is working  well. The ore ;shoot at the 300,foot  Level continues to yield gold quart* of  a payable grade,.and plenty of it. The  indications are that the company are  a fair, way to make a success of this  enterprise, which fora long while waa  hampered with conditions unfavorable  to its being successfully operated.  chair and the other Aldermen were  present. The city engineer having  returned it was decided to continue the  water system along Church street to  Louise, where the G. P. R. connects  for water for their tank at Greenwood  station. It was also decided to lay a  sidewalk on the west side of Kithberley  aye from Providence street to Dead1  wood.   ...  The waterworks amendment by-law  was passed through committee. Under  it the cost of laying a service pipe for  consumer will be $10 for ^ inch service  $12.50 for }i inch and $15 for one inch.  Ernest Nicbolseon Returns  After Two Yearl' Service  1  ; At the .Elkhorn the vein is lined with  free silver which comes off in big  leaves and appears to be almost the  pure metal. , Another carload is being  gotton out for shipment.  : Another car was shipped by the  Providence this' week- to .the Trail  smelter and regular weekly shipments  ire likely to be .made, in the fji furs;.'. -  -  *       ���>'.'"'a'" ���^-'���^-     .-.-������--..'.���-  V Atthe Gold Finch about 14 tons of  -.high grade is on the dump and" by the  end of ithe. .week sufficient ore^will be  takeii out to make up a car.' The assays secured from the Gold Finch pre  run over $100 to the ton.  The high grade mines of Greenwood  are beginning to attract the attention  of outside mining men. At first they  seemed to doubt the existence of high  grade veins in what.was always considered a low grade mining camp. But  smelters returns are convincing. Ship?  ments from the Providence, Elkhorn  and E. P. U. mines have, proven that  there are high grade mines in Greenwood camp and mining men are now  anxious to become interested.  Wm. Robertspn this week bonded  the City View from F. J. Finucane  and Dn Oppenheimer for $30,000. This  is one of the late Count Bielenberg'a  locations. It lies nearer to the city  than the Defiance, immediately east of  the Strathmore. Mr. Robertson has  already begun work on the property.  1 Two shifts of men are em oloyed on  the Morning Star, also in Fairview  camp, and some good looking ore is  being mined. The outlook for this  long neglected property now looks to  be promising, so that a contiifuance of  development. and ;>eyehtual ./placing 6��  the mine, on a profit-earning basis ia  anticipated with confidence.  ��� The installation of the reduction  works at Hedley City, Similkameen,  for treatment of ore from .the Nickel  Plate mine, on Twenty-mile creek, is  Jjeing steadily pushed. Good progress  has been made, and the completion of  the mill and accessories will result  during the season now entered npon.  Local and Personal.  W. M.

His  Friends Tender Mm ��� Condi*  mentary Banquet  C. Scott Galloway is making steady  progress with a tunnel he is driving on  the Strathmore claim with the object  of cutting a quartz lead which he fol-  loweddown to a depth of about 60 feet  in an incline shaft he -'sank several  yeara since. The tunnel should cut  this vein at a depth of about 20 feet  lower than the bottom of the shaft.  Some 200 feet have now been driven,  athd it is expected that the vein will be  encountered before a distance of 250  feet shail have been run. The quartz  runs well in gold and silver, and the  -pay-streak near the surface averaged  atibut six inches in width. A shipment of 22 tons was made at the time  the shaft was sunk, but freight and  treatment charges were at that time  higher than now and did not leave  sufficient margin of profit to encourage  Mr. Galloway to continue to get out  ore. Conditions are now favorable to  profitable working, so it is expected  that it will pay to mine and ship the  ore.  The.first band of beef cattle to come  in from the west this season for P.  Burns & Co. passed through Greenwood going to the slaughter yards at  Eholt- Meadow   on   Saturday.

William Fowler is busy making a  good wagon road to the Defiance which  he recently bonded. There is some  snow ind front there yet but they are  rapidly disappearing under the influence of the warm sunshine and he expects to begin development work next j  weak.    Recent advices from Camp McKinney state that the crosscut being run  at the 260 foot level in the Waterloo  has not yet reached the vein of rich  gold.quartz ore that at the 160 foot  level attracted mcch favorable notice.  One" vein has been passed through at  thft lower level, and drifting on it has  shown that the ore will pay to work,  bnt the crosscut is being pushed on  with the object of cutting the richer  ore believed to be ahead,  (The' smelters and big low grade  niines are getting ready for a busy  season. Coke is beginning to arrive  slowly and none of the furnaces will  be blown in until there is sufficient  coke on hand to insure a full and  XPtfuhyLsupplei^JThe^manaijenieiitB  are anxious to run their smelters to  their full capacity and want to prevent if possible any future closing  down. Running smelters atjhalf their  capacity, or blowing out for want of  fuel entails serious losses. For this  reason the coke bins must be fairly  well filled up before the furnaces are  blown in.  The Crow's Nest Pass Coal company  is determined that the smelter will pay  the loss arising out of the recent strike  althouSh the smelters were innocent  and seriously injured parties. No  sooner was the strike settled and shipments of coke began again than the  smelting company received the un-  welcomed news that the price of coke  would be advanced 25 cents a ton.  This practically means au advance of  50 cents a ton on the old rate for coke  from Morrissy where the greater portion comes from. Some time previous  to the strike the coal company made a  uniform rate on coke from Morris��ey  or Fernie although there is a difference  of 25 cents a ton on the freight rate  between Fernie and Greenwood and  Morrissey and Greenwood. The increase does not appear large per ton  but it is a; sonwwhat serious matter  when it is considered that the smelters  will be using over 100 tons of coke per  day. All the smelter men are registering vigorious kicks but as the Crow's  Nest Pess Coal company have a enm-  plete monopoly of the fuel business,  kicking is not likely to do much good.  j Dr. J. E. Spankie has been reappointed Dominion quarantine medical  officer and has appointed guards at  Midway and Myers Creek. The  necessity: for.the quarantine was occas-  siontd by small pox breaking out in a"  family who recently arrived at Chesaw  from Virginia. _^  j A promenade concert and dance will  be given iii the Masonic Hall on the  evening of April 23rd.

There waa no formal toaat  list but a delightful evening was spent  with speeches, stories and songs. Mr.  Keffer briefly explained the object of  the frendlx-gathering and on behalf of  the company welcomed Mr. Nicholson .,  back to Greenwood. Mayor Smailes  in a neat speech, on behalf of himself  and the citizens of Greenwood welcomed Mr. Nicholson home again and '--  paid a glowing tribute to the work of  the Canadians in South Africa. .  Geo. F. Dougherty of the Miners'  Union welcomed the ' guest back/ on  behalf of organized labor.  The guest's health was enthusiastically drunk and in a few suitable words  he acknowledged the cordial welcome  hiTfeceived; Tfie" act of kindness was  appreciated all the more because entirely unexpected. He was glad to get  back to Greenwood again.  Short speeches were also made by S.  Holman, Dan O'Connor, T. A. Milde,  Jno. A. MacDonald, E. Jacobs and D.  Ross. W. S. Keith told of the splendid service given for his country by  Mr. Nicholson in South Africa.

References were made to the friendly feeling which existed in the Boundary between capital and labor and in  responding to a toats to his health.Mr.  Keffer said that he was glad of this  friendly feeling and that in the future  aa well as in the past^ he would do  everything in his power to encourage  it. He believed, that it was mutually  advantageous to capital and labor.  The gathering broke u p at one o'clock  with Auld Lang Syne and the National  Anthem.

Wherever Smith Curtis is some-  tiling happens. He succeeded iir infusing some life into the proceedings,  in consequence of which the speaker  had to come to the resctteof the government. Mr. Ctirtis wants a general  election immediately after the session  and made a motion to tliat effect. The  finance minister held that no private  member could introduce such a motion  as an-expenditure was involved. The  speaker wanted time to consider the  point of order and no vote was taken.  .The estimates were brought down.  The item of .particular interest to  Greenwood is one of $5,000 to complete  the court house. Rossland riding gets  $15,000 for roades,Tstrjeets and bridges.  The only serious debate was on the  o      new assessment act..  Messrs. Curtis, McBride, Neill, Tatlow, Martin and one or two others  made valuable suggestions on detail  improvements. The member for Rossland -was particularly emphatic as to  the unfair proportion of the taxation  placed upon the mining industry, in  comparison, with that of agriculture.  He thought that even 25 cents an acre  on-mineral' claims, a reduction being  granted by the finance minister from  50 c^nts, as originally proposed in the  .^_^bi 11, .was,-dispropqr-tibnately-high;;\vhile  minf.qyvners should, he maintained,  have at least one year in which to redeem properties from seizure from  taxes. The same rule as to sale o-redemption sliould, Curtis held, apply to  mine owners and land owners. He was  surprised-to find no reference to promised.-'renii'ssioii  of the  two  percent  tax,-and inquired what' had  become of  * , ������ , . ,    . -     -  the government promises. Iu that regard premier'Prior responded that a  special bill would be submitted, under  which the two percent ixartion would  be done away with. The member for  Rossland had suggested that the tax  be upon the net profit of the mine,  rather than on the output, and in this  connection the premier pointed out  that the finance minister, upon making inquiries, had found none of the  great mines in the Rossland district  had confessed to making any profit,  Curtis explained that the profits of the  Rossland mines were ��<>ing into development and expansion,- which would  be the-diest for The country iu the long  run, a proposition with which the premier agreed. McBride,"held that, the  taxation should be npou the gross income, which drew from the finance  minister the remark, "We have a better  scheme than that." The opposition  leader favored a'general plan of tax-  ation,.applicable to all classes of imports, .and-hbped the finance minister  Would not forget his promise  with re  spect to the employees of transportation companies required to pay dual  taxation tinder the present system!  The same point was made by Mr. Martin, who, despite the advice of his  physicians, was in his place again, he  also showing that the income tax  should be raised, and the finance de-  paitment should make an extra effort  to collect legitimate taxes of the well-  to-do, such corporations as the C. P. R.  in East Kootenay, having too long  been favored by the government to  the prejudice of the general public.  Martin urged that too much money  was being spent in advertising tax  sales, and held that but one insertion  in the G&zette and one in a local paper  was all that was necessary.  On Wednesday the government-escaped defeat only by the casting vote  of the speaker and that in all probability would not have saved them, had  Price Ellison been i.:i his seat as he  had already expressed himself in favor  of an early dissolution and general  election. The resolution was that  moved by Smith Curtis asking for an  immediate dissolution after thepresent  session. The speeches were full of  snap and ginger. Mr. Curtis made  what was considered the best of many  good speeches made by him in the  house. Mr. Martin supported ihe  resolution and attorney-general Eberts  lost his temper and made a viscious  attack on John Oliver. The vote was  17 to 17 and speaker Pooley voted  against the resolution thus saving the  government.  Mark P.   Madden of Chicago never  speculated in   mines_ until he invested  in the Providence.    He made this  investment on the advice of friends who i ^  knew something about mining���a good i ^5  rule for other investors to follow. j -~2  .....

WHEN OUGHT  WE) TO  GO TO A DENTIST?  Many think it unnecessary  to devote particular attention to the teeth until the  appearance of the mouth is  affected by damaged* decayed or broken teebh. 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  satisfactory if one or more teeth  are tender, inflamed/ decayed, or  otliervise ont of working order;  and if this be the case, the mouth  requires immediate attention.

C.^naA'prllJlSttC cfl/  THE BOUNDARY CREEK TIMES  Pllgf c  sun; grand forks  Mr. Flumerfelt says that the  Fernie strike cost the Granby  smelter 540,000. And this is a  mere bagatelle of the total loss  sustained by the peoplo of this  province through the recent labor  disturbances. Some day the  people will come to the conclusion that we need an arbitration  law that will settle the differences arising between employer and  employee.in all branches of industry.,.. And after they have  made up their minds that this is  the kind, of law they want, the  law will be enacted.  VICTORIA TIMES.  British Columbia is a hard province to set in order. No sooner  is one difficulty, such as the Oriental labor matter, satisfactorily  disposed of- than another, quite  as perplexing, crops up. We are  still in the,throes of many labor  disputes of varying degrees of  magnitude. The Dominion government has been asked to appoint a commission to inquire into the ins and outs of our troubles  and report its findings to the administration/ It is understood  the investigations of this commission will be almost entirely confined to the disagreements which  have occurred between the owners of and employees in coal  mines, and which have injuriously affected so many other industries. It. might clear the atmos-  here considerably if the scope of  the commission could be extended  sufficiently to cover a good many  other industries. But we suppose  that would, open up too large a  question and too much ground  would have to be covered. The  situation here is somewhat serious  at present and celerity is undoubtedly essential.  acquainted with his colleague on  the Commission, the Rev. Mr.  Rowe, we are informed that he  will be found capable and fitted  for the duties that will devolve  upon him as a member of the  Commission. Mr. King, who is  named as an ex-offfcio member of  the Commission, should afford  useful assistance from the experience he has gained in regard to  labor issues from his official position.  NIttSON news.  Strenuous objection is being  made in all parts of the province  to the government's new assessment act, and it is altogether  likely the bill will be either modified or abandoned. The bill presented peculiar contrasts. Crown  granted claims required $200  worth of work annually to hold  them clear, while ordinary prospects were relieved at $100. Again  mineral ground was to have been  treated as a special subject for  taxation, i paying SO centsan acre  annually, while contiguous land  occupied as a ranch would escape  on the small charges made under  the wild land tax. Tbe injustice  of this has become so apparent  that the government will be forced to afford relief. Taxation  must not oppress one section of  the community to the exclusion of  another.  FERNIE FREE PRESS.  We do not believe that outside  of a few agitators there is a willingness among the miners to  drop the bone for the shadow by  throwing over the Western Feder  ation of; Miners and taking up  the larger American Union. Much  conld be said to show that nothing would be gained and a great  "dear might bTlostbysuclf IT tratP  sfer of allegiance. The local  unions and the Western Federation have received complete recognition from the company. It  is unfair on. the part of the writer  to spread these untruthful statements, but he will find that in  the end they will come back at  him with boomerangic effect and  render him,powerless as an agitator.
