It woiild appear that Conductor Halfpenny was coming down the long  grade just beyond Denoro city with a  string of 24 laden ore cars when for  some unaccountable reason the air refused to go on duty when summoned.  With the result that there was a runaway. The crew knew they had lost  cause when neither air nor hand brakes  could be made effective and having reversed the engine there remained nothing to do but seek personal s;pf>ty  safety. This they did by dropping < IT  the train. Down the grade and around  the oiu'via i u��hed liie l-u^, '<.--..  train for a mile or so when it dec ided  to leave the rails.

FAMILY QUARREL   Litigation  Ended Very  Summarily  PIONEERS  The annual meeting of the Kettle  River and South Okanagan Pioneer  Society will be held at the Riverside  hotel, Rock Creek, on Thursday, Sept.  1st next. Teams will be at Midway  on the arrival of the Canadian Pacific  west bound to carry members to the  meeting place. ,  LARGE TROUT  Mr. Fisher, teller in the Bank of  Montreal, holds the fishing record for  1904, for this section of country. ��� Chi  Saturday last he captured a bea/ntiful  trout in the Kettle River, just below  Midway, which measured 21inches.and  tipped the scale at 4jj^ pounds. That's  trout fishing.  OUR BAND AT THE FORKS  The Greenwood City Band left on  Tuesday last to afford the citizens of  Grand Forks and .the carnival visitors,  music' for the entire carnival. 'We  feel quite sure that the boys will in  every way reflect credit on their home  town and give the full value for the  money. This is the kind of neighborhood feeling that ought to exist between sister towns. It manifests a  very kindly spirit on the part of Graud  Forks to engage a Greenwood Band.  CITY TEAM  The city purchased a line new horse,  a good mate for the surviving one of  the old team, and Alex is getting him  accustomed to all kinds of noises and  things, not overlooking the hook aiid  ladder wagon.  THE PLAINS OF ABRAHAM  01  The Case   Heard at  Vancouver   on  Thursday  A valuable horse belonging to P.  Burns & Co. received rough treatment  at the hands, or rather the feet, of his  mate during Thursday night. The  horses were apparently on friendly  terms when put in the corral Thursduv  evening.. This morning one of them  was found cut and skinned and scarred  in a frightful manner. He was treated  by the veterinary surgeon. He look's  as'if he had been in the Denoro train  wreck.  THE V, W- & Y. RAILWAY  The completion of the new railway  bridge acxossthe_ Fraser river^at New  Westminster permits the Great Northern to fun trains direct from Seattle  into Vancouver over the V. W. & Y.  branch road just opened for traffic.  CAR1B0N  Harry Morgan reports halving seen a  herd of nearly 20 cariboo recently on  Boundary creek, aDout 40 miles up from  Greenwood. They had doubtless been  driven south by the fires that have  raged so fiercely in: the Fire Valley  country lying' north.  MINOR MININC MATTERS  It looks now as if the historic Plains  of- Abraham were to be sacrificed to  the commercial idea. There ought to  be sufficient roum elsewhere for manufacturing purposes. This historic spot  should remain a great Canadian recreation ground, or public park. The  batUefield ought to be sacred to both  English and French, who although  they met there in enmity, now live so  happily together, trying to work out the  great problem of national life.

Phil McDonald and Robt. Robinson  are doing some worK on the Connection claim just overlooking the town on  the east. When their shots are fired,  so heavy are the charges and so near,  one almost fancies he is in Port Arthur  and that tlie Japs are taking the town.

For some weeks past a crisis haa  been apparent, in the.affairs of the  Providence Mining Company. A  number, of: Chicago people -through  their representatives have been trying  to get possession of the- property.  Recently Messrs. Madden, Heenan and  Hyland of Chicago, interested in the  mine, made a prolonged stay in Greenwood accompanied by Attorney W. A.  Macdonald, K. C., of -Nelson. They  expressed some dissatisfaction with  the mine's management.and asked the  local directors to resign This request  was met by a decesive, definite refusal. Thereupon- the matter was  taken before the court at Vancouver  and the law was invoked to remove  thi'se iii rectors for- .-:it.is-:; The o.nse  ���-.���.���us nsa-c :;:: i-rruriiKny ,.o,x..r.l;;s.-.\yc.eic,.'  but the court refused the prayer of .the  I'.i'iitinm-rs.       ; .-:���-���',  I---fa ��� ������'-,    -   ���' -   -  -  mitted by the local directorate but the  surprise would have been general,  where these men .are well and favorably known, if it had been shown thai,  any. part 'of their, management. had  been tainted with fraud..

RUNAWAY ACCIDENT  On Thursday afternoon last as Mrs.  McKarracher and daughter were returning to Midway their horse became  unmanageable just below Anaconda  and overturned the two wheeled cart  in which the two ladies rode. Mrs.  McKarracher escaped' with minor in-  JlTlcsLjHLt_^J}cr,,.daugliter_^.was...quite,  severely bruised. She Was taken to  the home of-Miss'Embree near by,  where she received the kindest attention. It is thought that she will  speedily recover. '  REAL ESTATE  Gaunce & Wickwire report the sale  of Mrs. E. E. Harve's house on Silver  street to Mrs.- Grace Rowe. The property was , sold at a great bargain.  There is more .inquiry at present for  cheap residence, property and for real  estate snaps than for a long- time.  TO SAY FAREWELL  Lord Minto, Svho ik to leave Canada  ���in the near future, is arranging a farewell tour from ocean to ocean. It is  now 20 years sirceas military secretary  io Lord Lansdowne, Hi.s Excellency  first visited Canada. The regret at-  his departure will be widespread;and  sincere, so warmly is he held in the affections of tne people.  RAILROAD RUMBLINGS  The O. R. & N.

Quite a number of our young  folk have already gone or are  presently going to the coast in  pursuit of higher education than  is attainable at home. Several  mothers have gone with the  young folk and will keep house  that their children may not be  deprived of home influences at a  particularly formative age.  Only yesterday we were talking  with one of our most prominent  citizens along this line and he  remarked that he feared he would  be obliged to remove his family  to a town of greater privileges  for his boys. It would seem that  it ought to be possible for Greenwood to maintain a high school  in which our boys could complete  an ordinary English education  seeking only the special or the  professional elsewhere. San  Francisco, Portland, Spokane,  Vancouver, and other places are  affording *o our boys today school  privileges which ought lo be had  at home. No town can afford to  overljok the educational and  moral interest of the young. Investment in things intellectual  and moral is better for a town  than in many other directions.  With our lower altitudes and  jreneal clime a high school here  ought to attract pupils from the  neighbouring towns of Eholt and  Phoenix. From many points  west contingents would come. A  high school is a thing worth  striving for. It means more  good families and good families  are a valuable asset. It means  development of a boys pride in  his home towns institutions and  that is much.  It means affording the many  what only the few can now  secure, an opportunity for an  advanced education.  We presume that our school  board has already given this  matter serious thought. If sc  the subject is worthy further pursuit, if not the neglect is culpable.  The Dominion parliament has  authorized an increase in capital  stock sufficient to enable the  Kettle Valley Railway company  to extend their road up the North  Fork and beyond, and extending  the time for completion of the  company's lines.  \msm^mmmmmmmmmmmm  The Japs are busy these days  digging trenches, dismantling  forts, investing Port Arthur and  burying their patriotic dead.  Army and navy seem equally industrious, equally capable, equally successful in solving a serious  problem.  IMMIGRATION.  British Columbia appears to have  gotten some good advertising at the  recent exhibition at Winnipeg. Of  course all the world knows that this  sea of mountains is rich in ores of all  kinds, but few comparatively have  ever considered its resources from an  agricultural or horticultural standpoint. The fine exhibit of fruit at  Winnipeg was a surprise to our prairie  The process at Port Arthur is  one of slow but sure strangulation. Nearer and nearer to the  doomed fortress the enemy approaches. Forts are falling into  Jap hands day by day, and the  cord grows tighter round the  throat of the brave ones within  the fortress who know how to  fight  and  are  not afraid to die.

But the valleys  of the Kettle, the Similkameen and the j  Okanogan ought to have thousands of  settlers  who  would not  have the ad- j  vantages of the fine summers offset by :  the rigors of winter.     Many Manitoba j  farmers weary  of  the long, cold wint- |  ers, are coming into British Columbia, |  and others will follow.     There has developed   of   late   quite an inquiry for  Okanogan   and    Similkameen   lands.  For product,   for climate,   for beauty  the valleys of interior,  southern British Columbia challenge the world.  EDITORIAL NOTES.  DR. MATHISON  DENTIST  Naden-Flood Block, Greenwood, B.

BOUNDARY MAN RETURNING HOME.  From the Victoria Times of Aug   19  tli. inst we clip the following: ���  l1'. Whitewell, from the Boundary  country, who has been down the coast  operating the Cascade mineon Uehuch-  lesett harbor, returned this morning on  tlie steamer Queen Citv. He reports  that he has successfully opened up Uie  property and has taken out ISO tons of  very high grade ore inside of three  months. This ore arrived on the  steamer Queen City, Mr. Whitwell  having finished his contract with the  owners of the property. The ore, he  savs, was taken from a prospect in  which t-here had never been a shot  This goes to show the charcter of the  mine, as only two men had been employed during the three months mentioned. A gravity tram has been completed within the last month, connecting the works, 600 feet up mountain  side, with salt water, and important  developments will follow immediately.  It is intended to sink a shaft a distance  of a hundred feet bafore any other  further work is done. The ore will be  shipped to the Tacoma smelter for  treatment, and it will be of interest  heie to state that so valuable is it that  150 tons will pay expenses thus far incurred. Mr Whitwell believes that the  ore will continue to do so if the mine is  managed right.  Mr. Whitwell, who is a practical and  theoretical expert, says that there are  many mineral deposits very promising  on this Island, and if good practical  men are secured the Island should go  ahead in the mineral industry. There  has been a great deal of ''dead" work-  done, and this has held the industry  back and kept it in its present condition.  The Cascade is a copper mine, and  Mi. Whitwell pronounces the ore just  obtaine.l the very best that has ever  been shipped from the coast.  Mr. Whitwell was one of the leaseholders who opened the Providence  mine at Greenwood, and who made a  great success of that property. He  leaves for the Boundary country it. a  few days, but expect to return lo' Victoria shortly.  Mr. Whitwell has several claims up  Providence Creek just across the gulch  from Bailey's Camp. The Great  Northern extension into Phoenix  passes HL-;ir the property which i.s  known as the Maori group.  |        Boundary Ore Shipments,  NEW STYLE OF REDUCTION  MAIL  CONTRACT  SEALED TENDER-, addressed to the Postmaster General, will be received at Ottawa until Noon, mi Friday, 2nd September,  for the conveyance of Her Majesty's Mails, on  a pioposed Contract for four years, twelve  times per week each way. between Anaconda  and Greenwood from lstuctober next.

He  noticed a peculiar color about them  and had them analyzed. The result  was "a trace of gold", and the inference is that somewhere in Australia,  whence the sheep came, the pastures  growing on auriferous deposits are  short-cropped by the sheep whose teeth  coming in contact with the mineral  gradually absorb ii, Tlie einminent  arssayers7"Mes"srsrJ'6hnsriii, M ;i tt lH-y"&"  Co., to whom the teeth were submitted  for analysis, report the presence of  gold "but not in paying duantities."  Even in golden Australia sheep will  continue to be raised for their wool  and mutton, rather than teeth.  It is a very simple process of amalgamation  if  it could be made to work.

Nels Nordeen, a station man,  and his companion had drilled aud prepared six holes ready to touch the  match to them. Nordeen lighted all  six, but .only five went off. After  waiting.a moment he turned to his  companion and said he had forgotten to light the sixth hole, and ran up  to set it off. While in the act of touching the 'match to the fuse the blast  went off, hurling him down the hillside and' fracturing his skull, from  which injury he died five minutes after  the accident. Dr. Foster; of this city  who is acting for Corner Kingston,  Grand Forks, decided that an inquest  would.be unnecessary. The funeral  was held Wednesday. Beyond the  fact that Nordeen was a native of  Sweden, little could be learned con ���  cernin'g him..  Aaron Jackson was seriously injured  by a premature blast at Andrews &  McDonald's camp No. 2, near the dam,  at Grand Forks, Tuesday morning  last at 9 o'clock.

If we could move Kootenay into  Mexico or the United States, half of  Canada would fall dead with exertion  from attempting to get there first."  The Poplar Nugget grows facetious  in this manner: "Two good jobs are  now vacant in British Columbia���the  lieutenant-governorship and a supreme  court judgship.

Mr.  Sherwood savs the convention was the j  most successful ever held in the history  of  the  union.    There   were   over   400  delegates  in   attendance.      The total  number of representatives of the "art  preservative"   present was swelled  to  over 2000 bv visiting ex-delegates  and  printers and members from the Ladies  Auxiliary. It cost the St. Louis union  about $12,000 to entertain the delegates. The next annual convention  will be held in Toronto, Ont. The  Times acknowledges the receipt of the  most artistic souvenir of the convention that has ever reached this office.  Prior to the convention Mr. Sherwood  spent a couple of weeks at the Clifton  Spring Sanatorium, Colorado Springs,  Col., where he received treatment for  cellular inflammation, and he returned  home much improved in health. Mr,  Sherwood who is one of the army of  U. S. customs officers and stationed at  Danvill, Wash., was in the city yesterday en route to Midway.

Charles was one of the old landmarks  of the place and will be missed. Nearly  eight years ago he starfed the Gem  restaurant on Copper street and the  place has never been closed day or  night from date of opening to date of  sale. Attention to business has enabled the former owner to lay up considerable money which, supplemented  by large mining interests, have made  him independent. We trust to see him  back after a well earned rest.  QUERIES  Labor Day will soon be here. Is  there any celebration or public function in sight?

What about  a  skating rink for next  winter.    Anything doing?  What about a nice local display of  ores for the interest of visitors? Isn't  such a desirable thing possible?  BETTER ROADS  The government road gang has completed repairs on the highway between  Greenwood and Eholt and has moved  to Deadwood. There is a trreat deal of  traffic between Greenwood and the  Mother Lode and George Findlay hopos  to improve  the grade very materially.  (From our special correspondent)  New York, Aug. 26, 190+.���From  what we consider reliable sources the  report comes that prospects are good  for early work on the Midway and  Vernon railway. The eastern syndicate |that has been considering this  project very seriously has about concluded to take tip the scheme. Some  minor modifications in the proposed  contract may be necessary, but the  deal is likely to go through.  BRITISH COLUMBIA FRUIT.  Mr. R. M. Palmer, B. C. Commissioner at the Winnipeg exhibition  writes: "The British Columbia exhibits have bee.i the great attractions  at the fair to both Manitoba people  and visitors. Wholesale and and retail fruit merchants have also taken a  very lively interest in the fruitexhibits  and crops in the province generally.  We are deluged with orders for cherries'  especially, far more than can possibly  be filled. The prc.-s has given splendid notices anil reports in regard to  the fruit exhibits, both fresh and preserved. Altogether the province has  oeen better and more widely advertised  than I think could have been done in  any other way ou account of the  thousands of people who haveseen for  themselves.  There has been a little jealousy, due  to the feeling that people would be  drawn from the Northwest to British  Columbia, but the consensus of opinion  amongst really representative men is  admiration of the exhibit and the enterprise shown in making it."  Mr. Thomas Cunningham, provincial  fruit inspector, returned on yesterday's  Imperial Limited from a tour of the interior, during which he attended the  quarterly meeting of British Columbia  Fruit Growers' Association at Nelson.  Mr. Cunningham stated that all  through the Kootenay district the sun  was almo.-.t obscured with the smoke of  many forest fires. Much valuable  timber was being destroyed throughout that district, and men were on  guard day and night to protect farm  dwellings which were threatened by  the flames. The smoke has in a  measure delayed the ri en ing of some  of the fruit throughou the KQotenay  district, according to Mr. Cunningham,  yet the fruit crop generally is in splendid condition. In one place in the in-  Ieribr"he~had se~en~airbrcliard"4000'feet  above sea-level so loaded down with  apples and other fruit that the trees  had to be propped up to prevent the  weigh', of the fruit breaking down the  branches.  ������������������.������.���������������������^*..*..*.,*..*M*^4.*��.*.��*-m'..J��.^*..2mJ��.*^*..J^��  ....  .������o  ....  ...��  ...m  ��� ���������  ��� *������  ��� *������  ��� ��*0  ������������  ..������  ��� ���������  ....  ��������  ������������  ��� ���������  "������  '���������  ������������  ������������  ��� *������  .*������  ������������  ������������  ....  ������������  ��� ���������  ��� ���������  ....  ....  ....  ������������  ������������  ������������  ������������  ��� *.a  ��� ���������  ��� ���������  ������as  ������������  ��� ������a  Hardup���"I'm very sorry, but I can't  pay you today.
