The Greenwood Typographical union  held its monthly meeting in Grand  Forks last Sunday. Five members  went from Greenwood and Phoenix,  some of them loaded with grievances  and other things. The party consisted  of Ellis, Falconer, Elliott, Wilcox and  Hilliard, all chaperoned by the staid  and reliable Hem merle. The day was  a perfect one for an outing and the  drive over the hill was fully enjoyed.  Some of the members of the party got  exhiliarated with the atmosphere of  the higher altitude going over, and by  the time Grand Forks was reached were  too light-headed and light hearted for  serious work. A short stay at the  Forks reversed things and when the return trip was undertaken a general  sadness pervaded the company. Men  unused to travel should take the trips  involving such climatic changes accompanied by all kinds of modern  remedies for keeping heart and brain  steady. The old prescriptions of Doctor Usher, Walker and others are now  acknowledged to be valueless, and  McCreath's Iron Brew is suggested as  a substitute.  Peck McSivayne blew into the Forks  the day before to attend the meeting  and renew old acquaintances but our  boys were sorry to miss him in some  uuacountable way. Whose fault ii was  as yet remains unproven.  The business of the meeting was attended to with great despatch so intent  was eveione on the main issues of the  day. The local delegation lost its  chaperon iu the Forks and he returned  Monday by rail.  Band Concert October 26,  I RENBELL  J       & CO. ^  SERIOUS ACCIDENT-  Another serious accident occurred at  the B C. Copper company's smelter  on Monday evening last It would  appear that one of the employees, John  Ingalls, having occasion to go outside  the building fell into an excavation  that has been made. No light appears  to have been present as a warning to  the passer-by. Ingalls fell about 10 or  12 feet and suffered seveie injuries to  his back particularly. He lay unconscious in the trench fora time.  It is impossible that largo industri.il  works of the character of a mine or  smelter be carricl on without occasional accident to those cinpioved, but  it ought to be incumbent on the management to take means to safe guard  life.  JUST EAST  Of Town is Proving a Big  Surprise.  Up There at Present With Good Results.  For some mouths after the Providence and Elkhorn became known as  high grade properties of great value  the search for others of the same  character vvas confined to the same  belt of hills. Little or no attention  was given to the hills just east of the  town and south of Twin creek, although  only about a mile south of the Piovi-  dence camp. In the olden days one  claim on the hill had shipped some  good ore but for several years it had  been idle and report said that the lead  was lost. That claim was the Skylark. Of course there were old mining  men who had worked in the mines of  Colorado, Utah, Nevada and elsewhere  who talked the east hill most enthus-  tically, but little was done in the way  of development for some time. The  Gold Finch had been imperfectly prospected and although some good ore was  shipped the. b.oud-was ;iever taken up.-  Later the E. P. U. was exploited by  Mr. D. McVicar with most gratifying  results, culminating in a recent sale to  a strong syndicate of Dakota and local  men. =  The last six months have wrought  wonderful changes -on the east hill.  Today the following claims are being;  worked there: The E. P. U., Helen,;  Barbara, Silver Cloud, Silver King,  Bay, Mavis and Syklark.  The record these claims are making  is stirring- up interest in the hill north  of Twin Creek, with the result that  the Last Chance and Strathmore are  being- prospected and developed, and  : tlie CanadiauJs_under_bond...-v-Tn .thein  near neighborhood are the Crescent  with some good ore on the dumps, and  the Don Pedro with a very promising  vein. And thus the east hill grows to  be of even more local interest than the  north belt wliere the Elkhorn is making  a good record, and the Providence is  handing- out its monthly dividends.  BRITISH COLUMBIA AT THE  FAIR.  A tel'.gram from H. B. Munroe to  the Times reads as fohows: "Won on  minerals 2 graud prizes, 25 gold medals,  31 silver medals and 14 bronze medals,  out of total of SS entries, liritish  Columbia is O. K." In the absence of  fuller information it would appear from  the above that out of a total of 85 competitions in the mineral department at  the fair, general and special, this  province captured 72 prizes, of which 2  were grand prizes and 25 gold medals.  In this connection we desire to testify  to the valuable services Greenwood's  representative, H. Ii. Munroe, has  rendered at the fair, judging from re-  reports we have had from returned  visitors, and from letters written us  from St. Louis.  Moreov r let il be said that while  Mr. Munroe has generally represented  the province he has not failed to keep  the Boundary to ti-e front. We shall  be mistaken if we do not later reap returns from the missionary work done  in St. Louis bv Mr. Munroe.  Band Concert October 26.  HEADQUARTERS.  The local political parties are getting  the harness on. Headquarters have  been opened by the Liberals in the  rooms form.-rly occupied by the Bank  of B. X. A., and the Socialists in the  Clarendon block. The Conservatives  will probably make their home in their  former headquarters on Copper St.  COPPER  FIGURES  As   Given by the  Mining  World of Chicago.  THROWS fl BRIGHT HIT  On tiie Progress of British Columbia  in the Last Nine Years.  The Mining World of Chicago in its  October issue gives a table of ore production for years 1895 to 1903 inclusive. A comparison of the figures  affords pride to the British Columbian,  not so much for the actual O/itput as  for the rate of progress being made.  In the item of copper production particularly the growth has been phenom-  inal. As we who live in the Boundary  particularly know, the growth has just  begun. A dozen years will cover the  history of the output here, but the next  dozen years will magnify the record of  the past by doubtless ten fold. The  larger part of that increase will take  place in Southern British Columbia,  much of it in the Boundary. The  large concerns are now here at work  with possibilities and opportunities for  indefinite expansion. All these too  are at present in the hands of Americans, who have done and are doing  for the country what liie Canadians  could not, and the English would not.  The progress of the output of copper  during the years just named in the following states has been as follows, the  gain being expressed in percentages.  In 1903 the output over that of 1895  vvas as follows: Colorado, 130'p.c;  Michigan, 150 p.c; Arizona, 315 p.c;  Utah, . 1800 p.c; British Columbia,  3500 p.c.  AT HIS OLD HOME.  The St. John Telegraph has the following reference to one of our former  citizens :���   -~^^-^--^----^--^------���^=^:---^-^==^-^----  "6. E. Merritt, son of W. Hawksley  Merritt, is home from Greenwood, B.  C, where he has been residing for the  past five yeais in the employ of the  British Columbia Copper Co. He  speaks in very favorable terms of the  industry, the town, the people and  province. There are many maritime  province people in Greenwood aud  among them a couple of St. John men  besides Mr. Merritt. They are Messrs.  Kenneth and Walter Frith. The  former is postmaster and the latter is  in the stationery business.  "Mr. Hallett, a former Sussex lawyer  is a magistrate in Greenwood, and  there is also in the town Frank  Ketchum, whose home was formerly in  this province.  "Greenwood is in what i.s called the  Boundary country. It is close to the  border of the state of Washington, and  has about 1000 population. Mining is  the great industry. Good wages arc  paid not only in the mines but in other  lines as well. A clerk receives from  S75 to ��125 monthly. The lowest wages  is 52.50 a day.  "Living expenses are not high,"  said Mr. Merritt, "board is reasonable.  A man could save money but there i.s  not much money saved in Greenwood.  The people spend freely. There are  no coppers. The smallest coin is a  quarter, sport is general, horseback  riding and racing meet the popular  taste, also curling and skating."  Mr. Merritt v.-ill be in St. John for a  couple of months.  GONE EAST.  Jack Crawford, well and popularly  known, went east on Saturday last.  Report makes his destination Montreal, his return in about ten days from  da��e and his travelling companion  west a very near friend. But we must  not tell any more just now. BOUNDARY   OREEK    TIMES  " MY FRIEND FROM INDIA"  Walker's Comedians Coming to Give  Us an Evening- of Laughter.  An attraction which should please  our theatre patrons���particularly those  who are fond of a hearty laugh���is  "My Friend From rndia,"'a world famous comedy wi ich is to be presented at  the Greenwood Auditorium on Thursday, October 20. The organization  presenting this hilarious mirth pio-  ducer is known as Walker's Comedians,  so called because the director of iu  destines is Mr. C. P. Walker, the well-  known theatre manager, and also that  it mav be distinguished from the inferior companies with which this  boundless west has been sorely afflicted. Mr. Walker sent us last year  "What Happened to Jones," "Why  Smith Left Home" and other high  grade comedy performances which  more than fulfilled his promises. "My  Friend India" needs no recommendation to those familiar with plays and  plavers, and Mr. Walker's.word that it  will be given by an unusually strong  company will be accepted by the public  with which he has always kept faith.  There is surely an evening- of wholesome fun coming to us on the date  mentioned.  issued by the Bureau of Provincial. Information. The publication is a most  creditable one from every viewpoint  and far and away the best yet i".sin:d  by the government. While much of  the mattei and niaiiv of Iheviews have  appeared before in some form or.iiher.  tlie pamphlet needs no criticism . x-  cent words nf commendation. The  illustrations are particula'-l;, line v.vA.  the letter press good while the g Tn-ril  scope of the pamphlet is broad em n-j'h  lo coverall localities ami all branches  of the industry. Bulletin No. V> has  merits which would justify the publication of a much larger issue than  13,000 copies, and we reget that it has  been limited to that number. There is  nothing'of boom about it but a cold  statement of facts based ou the very  best available authorities.  ODDFELLOWSHIP.  Oddfellowship in the Boundary,  Tuesday, October 27th. will witness  one of the biggest meetings of the kind  ever held in the Boundary country.  The D. D. G. M., Fred B. Holmes, has  issued an invitation to all the Oddfellows of Grand Forks, Phoenix, Eholt,  Boundary Falls and Greenwood to  meet here in the I. O. O. F. hall. During the evening degrees will be conferred by the different lodges and the  balance of the evening spent in social  exercises. The Ladies Aid of the  English church will serve a knife and  fork supper in the city hall, and the  event promises to be in every way a  success. It is to be hoped all members  of the order reading this notice,  whether visiting the district or otherwise, will consider it a personal invitation and try to be present.  THE PROVIDENCE AGAIN.  The Rossland Miner of Thursday has  the following : "W. A. Macdonald,  K. C, representing the Chicago inter  ests in the Providence Mining com-  peny, of Greenwood, appeared in the  supreme court yesterday before Mr.  Justice Irving to ask for further protection of those interests.  The plaintiffs in this action have  made grave allegations against certain  Greenwood men who are on the Providence directorate. They contend that  the funds of the company have been  misappropriated, and allege forgery  and the stuffing of the pay roll. They  also object to a recent deal made by  the- -defendants;- in -"which" a piece-of  neighboring ground known as the Diamond Fraction was sold to the Provi.  dence company for 1600 treasury  shares. This has resulted in the control of the company passing from Chi-  ago to Greenwood.  Messrs. Madden and Heeney, representing the Chicago interests, were in  court yesterday watching the proceedings. They came here with the avowed  determination to see justice done to  their associates.  As a result of Mr. Macdon.Ud's representations yesterday, Mr Justice  Irving ordered that all the facts of the  case be presented to the chief justice  at the opening of the supreme court at  Greenwood on the 17th prox."  Inasmuch as this matter is to come  before the court in Greenwood nevt  week, comment is unnecessary. We  trust to be able to report the case fully  iu next week's issue.  OUR   PREMIER.  The following- words from Sir Wilfrid Laurier are as beautiful as thev  are patriotic. To the end end portrayed in his picture he has been bending  all his energies, and the result of his  words will be the counterpart of his  words :  "Thank Providence that we live in a  country of absolute freedom and liberty. Let us always bear in mind otir  duties, for duty is always inherent in  right. Our fathers had to labor to  secure these rights Now let us fulfil  our part. When'visiting England at  the Queen's Jubilee, I had the privilege of visiting one of those marvels of  Gothic architecture which the ham! of  genius, guided by unerring faith, had  made a harmonious whole, in which  granite, marble, oak and other materials blended. This cathedral is the  image of the nation that I hope to see i \\  Canada become. As long as I live, as  long as I have the power to labor in the  service of my country, I shall repel the  idea of changing the nature of its  different elements. I want the marble  to remain the marble; I watit the  granite to remain the granite; I want  the oak to remain the oak; I want the  sturdy Scotchman to remain the  Scotchman; I want tlitf brainy Englishman to remain the Englishman; I  want the warm-hearted Irishman to  remain the. Irishman; I want to take  all these elements and build a nation  that will be foremost amongst ��� the  great Powers of tbe world."

Scott Galloway who is in charge  of the Strathmore was showing some  ore today from the south drift on tbe  property. The ore carries tree gold  and native silver and assays about 5100  to the ton. The Strathmore has recently been floated as a stock company  and the shares are held largely by  local people and Grand Forks and  Eholt investors. In early days a good  deal of rich ore was shipped from this  claim so that it is not surprising to  find it showing up so well uuder present development. Where the ore was  found is at a depth of about 50 feet and ��5  Mr. Galloway expects to be able to  stope out a car or two of ore from this  level. The Strathmore lies about 15U0  feet south of the Providence.  Providence Mining Company. Limited,  Non-Personal Liability.

Tweedie. premier of New Brunswick, lit the  close of an address at Vancouver  last week, took occasion to say  that on the authority of Sir Wilfrid Laurier, the Dominion of  Canada would grant better terms  to the provinces of the Dominion.  We are not concerned with the  rig-hts of the other provinces at  this moment, but we are pleased  to have the statement from so  authoritative a source. British  Columbia relations with the Dominion have long- needed readjustment and we are glad to know  that the government of the day  sees its way now clear to harmonize the inconsistencies that  have so long obtained. If the  other provinces deserve better  terms much more so does this sea  of mountains, so large, so sparsely settled and so remote from  federal headquarters. British  Columbia with its great stretch  of sea coast, its ranges of mountains and its immense territory is  an expensive country to open, an  expensive country to settle, an  expensive country to govern. We  are sure the province asks no  favors because it is a younger son  of the family with curtailed privileges, but it does ask for the  share that belongs to it.  HOW THE PARTIES STAND.

This constituency is an important one from its size and constantly increasing population; its  mining prospects, which are not  yet fully developed; its timber  ranges the value of which is con-  stantly increasing; its mild and  urenial climate, with its tens of  thousands of fertile land suitable  for agricultural and pastoral pursuits, as we'll as the unexampled  fruit "rowing capabilities mark-  it as being in a few short years  the ideal home of a thickly settled  and prosperous community. This  is no dream or far-fetched prediction, but a bold statement of  what within the next decade will  be an accomplished fact.

PEACE AND WAR.  The discussion and resolutions  of the recent Peace Congress at  Boston appear out of joint with  the war spirit oi" the age and the  history the world has been making of late. Ever since the czar's  dream of universal peace was  heralded to the world the nations  appear to have been disquieted.  Ships and armament have beeu  constructed as never before.  The United States have had war,  serious war, east and west; Great  Britain has called her sons from  every colony to battle iu Africa;  Russia and Japan are at this  moment engaged in one of the  bloodiest wars of the centuries.  Peace sounds well and could it  be equitably secured, would mean  much for the world, but with  human and national greed remaining as now war now and  then appears inevitable.  Peace congresses grow out of  the purer, better life of the  people, but the business temper  of a nation will still build and  equip arsenals and launch ever  enlarging warships with their  death-dealing equipment.  small holdings. The excellent  climate, the mild winters and the  choice fruit of the Okanagan are  fast converting the ranges into  orchards. Al Peachland the  Lambly ranch of 400 acres has  been subdivided into 70 tracts  and these are being rapidly sold.  Large numbers of people wearied  of the cold of Manitoba and the  Northwest find the Okanagan the  paradise of which they haddream  ed but   never believed existed.  An option has recently been  acquired on the Ellis range for a  syndicate of-eastern people with  the view of subdividing it into  small tracts. The figures named  in the consideration run well up  into the hundreds of thousands,  but once subdivided into small  holdings the tract will realize'  several millions. British Columbia fruit stands well in England  and this year captured the popular heart at the Winnipeg f?ir  aud the Okanagan is pre-eminently the fruit section of the  province.  NUGGETS FROM THE INDEPENDENT  PACTS FOR ELECTORS.  Never were manufacturers   so  busy.  Never did workingmeu get better wages.  A GOOD SIGN.  -Large -areas ^f -laud- in'"the  Okanagan  are  being cut up into  Never   were   workingmeu    so  much in demand.  Never   did   Canada    loom    so  largely in the eyes of the world.  Never were the farmers so well  to do, so happy and so comfortable.  The last seven years under  Liberal rule have been marked  by unprecedented progress and  prosperity.  Greater progress has been made  during the last eight years than  during the eighteen-years of-Con-  servative administration.  REAL TERMS OF THE  RAILWAY OONTRAOT  "The people of Canada have provided nine-tenths of the  capital, yet they do not participate in the profits, control the  rates, or have have any voice in the road's management."���Mail  and Empire report of Mr. Borden's speech.  There are four statements here and thejr are all untrue. The  people of Canada do not provide nine-tenth of the capital to  build the National Transcontinental Railway; they do participate in the profits; they do control the rates; they do have a  voice in the management of the road.  The people of Canada provide all the capital for the eastern division of the railway���from Winnipeg to Moncton���but  that is little, if anything, more than half the capital required  for the whole line. This is absolutely all the capital they provide, and they will own the division -they build; the rest or the  capital is furnished by the Grand Trunk Pacific Railway Company, which constructs and owns the western division.  The people of Canada do participate in the profits of the  whole line to the amount of three per cent, on the cost of construction of the eastern half of it, whatever that may be.  The people of Canada have a very effective control over  rates, not merely through the Railway Commission, with its as  yet undetermined but ui.doubtedly great powers, but also  through Parliament, which has absolute jurisdiction over the  carrying out of the contract.  The people of Canada have a good deal to say about the  management of the road. They fix the standard of efficiency  which has to be lived up to in the construction of the western  division; they fix the minimum of rolling stock to be assigned  to the eastern division; they have secured running rights for  the Government railway and other railways over the Transcontinental line; and through the Railwav Act they exercise a very  potent control over aspects of the management too numerous to  be here specified.���Toronto Globe.  The labor vote, as a transferable quantity in a national election, is a myth. It is governed  by general part}r sentiment and  not by walking delegates.  The province cannot go ahead  until its fiscal relations- with Ottawa are improved. Our political relations are a little too intimate. This is the season that  the province gets the worst of it.  The idea that working-men,  and particularly organized laborers, can be compelled by labor  leaders to vote for this or that  party is utterly erroneous, and  nobody knows this better than  the labor leaders themselves.  This notion that the labor vote  can be transferred, like an old  hat, from candidate, to candidate  or from party to party by dickering with leaders is as false as it  is dishonorable. It is as reliable  and staple as is the vote of any  class in the country. It is customary, just before elections, for  labor leaders to pu<- themselves  forward as controlling the labor  vote, and to be ready to bargain  for its delivery; but they are  never able to "deliver the goods."  There is no vote in the country  that is less deliverable, and who  ever tries*, to bargain for or to deliver it is either a fool or a rogue.  THE PUBLIC DEBT.  In the last budget speech, Finance Minister Fielding estimated the public debt per head of the  population at $46.31 on the 30th  of June, 1904, as compared with  $50.61 on the 30th June, 1896, the  last year of Conservative rule.  r   ��-.  , -ft  *k;  To The Electors  of Yale-  Cariboo:  As the Liberal candidate in this  electoral district, I respectfully solicit  your vo*es and influence.  No attempt will be made to discuss  the g-eneriil issues of the campaign in  this address. Since receiving the Liberal nomination in January last, I  have visited many parts of the riding  and made myself thoroughly acquaint  ed with its requirements. This work  will be continued until election day  but owing to the large extent of territory to be covered it is a.physical impossibility to visit all sections or personally interview all the electors. I  therefore avail myself of thisoppor-  tuni.y to ask for vour suffrage.  Permit me to direct your attention to  some matters of local importance.  Yale-Cariboo fully warrants the expen  diture of public money in its development. The government has already  done much in this direction. It has  granted aid to several lit;es of railway;  government owned t.-leirraph and telephone lines have been constructed; the  necessary raonev nns been voted to  secure telephonic communication  through the rich Nicola :md Similkameen districts, at id telegraphic communication between Vernon and Kelowna. In order tliat the practically  inexhaustible mineral, timber and  agricultural resources of the district  may be fully developed, this policy of  governmental aid   must   be continued.  It is important that Yale-Cariboj shall  return as iis member one who can  direct the attention of the government  to matters of vital importance to the  district and who will support the government in its aggressive policy of development. It is particularly important that the electors of this-riding  should show llieir appreciation of the  government's broad, statesmanlike  plan of constructing anothei transcon  tinenlal railway which will be the  chief factor in opening up the northern  portion of the riding. Branch lines to  connect with the southern transcontinental lines will surely follow and the  whole interior of the povincewill be  opened up.  Briefly, my policy, so far as Yale-  Cariboo is concerned, is a policy of development of all its important sections.  With a leader whose record fills with  pride all people of this country, irrespective of party affiliations; supporting  a government whose eight years of  wise, progressive administration has  placed Canada in a proud position  among the nations of the world, and  at the same time has more closely connected the ties which bind us to the  mother country, and fully endorsing a  policy which means so much to the  western portion of the Dominion, and  more particularly to the District of  Yale-Cariboo, I await with confidence,  your verdict.  Yours very sincerely.  Duncan Ross.  Greenwood. Oct. 6th. 1904. BOUNDARY   OREEK   TIMES  dl  STEWART  SUPPORTS  Laurier  Government   and  Liberal Candidates  Believes They Will Be Returned by  Large Majorities.  J. \V. Stewart, the well known railway contractor who is building the  Great Northern railway into Phoenix  and whose company has other large  railway contracts in different parts of  the Dominion, has given an interview  to the press which is of particular interest to the electors of Yale-Cariboo  and Kootenay. Mr. Stewart is at present in Winnipeg and he, in common  with a large number of successful  business men who heretufore have  taken no active interest in politics,  has expressed his intention of fighting  this time for Laurier, progress aud development. The telegraphed interview-  says:���  "Mr. J. W. Stewart, a prominent  railway contractor, has just announced  himself as an enthusiastic supporter of  the Laurier government, and as one  who will exert every legitimate influence in his power to ensure the succes  of all the Liberal candidates in Manitoba, the Northwest aud British Columbia. He is the leading member of  the firm of J. W. Stewart & Co., with  a monthly pay roll at present exceeding seven thousand names. An idea;  of the magnitude of the operations of  the company may be gained from a-  recital of the list of railway contracts  it is now engaged in carrying out:  C. P. R. line. Toronto to Sudbury,  Ontario, 220 miles; reducing the grades  between Fort William and Winnipeg;  Areola brauch of the C. P. R., 113  miles; Pheasant Hills extension of the  C. P. R.. 60 miles; Moose Jaw, Swift  Current, C. P. R. cut-off, 100 mi'es;  Lacombe extension of C. P. R., 25  miles; WeUiskiwin extension of the  C. P. R., 25 miles; Clanwilliam cut-off,  C. P. R., west of Revelstoke;  B.C.; Great Northern railway, extension from Morrissey to Fernie, B. C ;  Great Northern .extension from Grand  Forks to Phoenix, B   C 25 miles.  It was his appreciation of the possibilities of theCanadian west, combined  with devotion to duty, that ensured  him a successful career from the very  outset. A civil engineer bv profession,  the early eighties saw him on the C. P.  R. surveys between Winnipeg and the  coast. He has traversed on foot ihe  entire distance between tlioso two  points, gaining by personal experience  an unsurpassed knowledge of the resources of Western Caua'da. At the  age of 20 years Mr. Stewart was in the  Rockies directing the work of construction under Mr. James Ross, the well  known contractor who built the principal sections of the. C.. P. R. between  Winnipeg and the Selkirks. Later he  successfully engaged in railway construction contracts ou his own account  both in Canada and the United States.  His firm built most of the C. P. R.  lines and branches in southern liritish  Columbia and has now two thousand  men at work ei'tistrueling the Great  Northern railway extension froniGrand  Forks to Phoenix. Although a Liberal  by conviction Mr. Stewart has hitherto  never taken any active part in politics.  His decision to ei'ler tin- fray, as he  explains himself, wa^iarge'y prompted  by patriotic motives. The prosperity  that has prevailed under the Liberal  regime, the absolute necessity of ihe  continuance of a well directed immigration policy, the security of capilal  under existing conditions, and the railway policy of the government, arc the  principal factors that have resulted in  Mr. Stewart's publicly championing  the Liberal cause. The Conservatives  in his opinion, should be given their  quietus if ouy for their leactionary attitude towards, the Canadian west, and  their visionary and unpractical policy  of state owned transcontinental railway .  "The Laurier government wi'l tie returned to power by a larger majority  than ever," said Mr. Stewart last  night. "I speak especially from a  knowledge of Manitobe, the Northwest  and British Columbia. The people  have too  much  common sense to ex  change a stable, progressive government forthe uncertainties of Conservative rule under small minded leaders  who cannot even agree among themselves in regard to half the vital issues  of tlie day. Since Sir Wilfrid Laurier  assumed power, Canada lias entered  upon a new phase of life and national  development that is attracting worldwide attention. The average citizen  does not have to read blue books and  statistics to see that good times prevail.  Prosperity is here. It is a vital, dominant fact, and the enormous expansion  of trade and industry, so apparent from  the Atlantic to the Pacific, has been  largely due to the business-like tariff  and immigra'.ion policy of the Laurier  government. The influx of settlers  into the west i.s one of the greatest  phenomena of the twentieth century.  It is a movement that has no bounds.  I believe that the influx each succeeding year will increase at a cumulative  rate if the direction of national affairs  remains in the hands of the Liberals.  "The west has especial reason to  feel proud nf its cabinet minister, Hon.  Clifford Sifton, who as minister of the  interior has promulgated and carried  out an immigration programme that is  worthy of all admiration and praise.  I do not even know Him personally,  but I must admit as a Canadian that I  have followed his career with unbounded admiration. It would be well for  the Dominion if it possessed a few  more men of the force and breadth of  vision of Mr. Sifton. By his untiring  efforts the minister of the interior has  rendered not only the west but all  Canada a service of priceless value.  "The liberals should be continued in  office," added Mr. Stewart, "if only for  their statesmanlike transcontinental  railway policy. The bargain is a first-  class one in every respect and will ensure the opening of regions abounding  in varied resources, equal if not superior to those existing in the sections  tributary to the main line of the C. P.  R. This is not merely hearsay because  I speak from a personal knowledge of  a large portion of the western section  of the proposed route. I know the  great grain belt it will traverse, and  in British Columbia am familiar with  the Lillooet and Cariboo districts,  whose resources can scarcely be enumerated. I refer to scores of fertile  agricultural valleys, rich grazing  lands, vast timber reserves, and a mining region possessing lode and placer  gold mines, coal, copper, iron, asbestos  Continued on page 6.

The building of  the Grand Trunk Pacific, apart from  affording employment to thousands of  men, will open up for settlement a  country whose superior does not lie out  of doors,"  Mr. Stewart takes a special interest  in the contest in British Columbia,  mainly on account of the warm friendship existing between himself and  several of the liberal candidates.  "I feel confident the liberals will  have a walk-over in British Columbia"  resumed Mr. Stewart. "The conservatives out west are divided on the  railway question, many oi them being  strongly in favor of the liberal policv.  This is especially apparent in Yale-  Cariboo. The people in the northern  part of Cariboo are eagerly awaiting  the commencement of operations, anc1,  are almost a unit for the government,  fearing that a conservative victory  would rob them of the railway, or result in a postponement: of construction  for many years.  "I am heartily supporting my old  friend "W. A. Galliher, the liberal can  didate in Kootenay. Mr. Galliher has  done splendid service at Ottawa and  t'xere is no question of his re-election  by a majority of over one thousand.  He is popular with all classes. To him  is largely clue the credit of impressing  upon the government the wisdom of  granting a bonus to the silver-lead industry. The transformation effected  by that legislation has had a magical  effect in stimulating the output and in  giving employment to hundreds of  miners. The Canadian silver lead industry is now on a firm basis, having  been freed from the domination of the  American lead trust,   which   until   the  1904 Catalogue of complete Home Furnishings mailed free to any  address���1568 illustrations, valuable information.

A large number  was present and general enthusiasm  prevailed. The following committee  was elected to have charge of the  pending election .struggle: J. K.  Brown, M P P, president; I-I. W. Falconer, secretary; G. R. Naden, Kenneth  McKenzie, Dr. Mathison, Edward  Pope, S. Barry Yuill, C. Scott Gallo-  way, Charles Gottvereau, Angus Nicholson, Alex. Robinson. The committee rooms are open every evening,  well warmed and lighted, and an  abundance of up-to-date literature is  spread on the tables.  THE WAR.  The latest from the seat of war  shows no substantial progress being  made by the Russians in the much  vaunted attack they were to direct  against the Japs. Several bloody  clashes appear to have ensued within  the last few days but the general  advantage appears to have been with  the Japs.    Today's despatches say:  No appreciable progress has been  made in the projected advance southward of the Russian armies tinder  general Kouropatkin, since the initial  success of the movement on the capture  of Bentsioputze, Fighting of the most  stubborn description continues along  the entire front. Field marshall  Oyama reports the capture of 30 guns  from the Russians. General Kouro-  oatkin's report to emperor Nicholas is  couched in guarded words and clainis  nothing in the way of accomplished results. Reports from the military commanders at Port Arthur show that the  Japanese have brought a shell fire to  bear upon the inner fortress. The  garrison, however, is represented to be  hopeful of the outcome of the seige.  Gorman West has taken over  dining room of the Pioneer hotel  aud will serve first class meals.

Wise and  Otherwise  Miss McLean has been promoted to  a position in the office of P.iBurns &  Co., Nelson.  Fred. H. Oliver, whilom manager of  the Morrison, came in on Sunday evening's stage.  Mrs. H. V. Fuller went to Portland,  Oregon, for a short visif among friends  on Tuesday last.  Capt. McMann has sold his comfortable residence and is planning to return to his former St. John home.  Messrs. Madden and Heenan of Chicago, stockholders in the Providence  mine, were in town this week.  Mr. W. M. Law went to Rossland on  Monday last on business connected  with the Providence Mining company.  A session of supreme court will be  held in Greenwood on the 17th inst.  Chief Justice Hunter will probably be  in attendance.  P,hilip Wells,  late  of the C.   P.  A recent American visitor to British  Columbia is reported in a Butte paper  as making some very severe criticisms  on the Judiciary of British Columbia.  He evidently had it in his mind that  the self-attached importance of a client  ought to weigh with a court. That  seems to be the case in Iowa where the  same court sentenced a banker to 18-  months in the pen because he robbed  his depositors of $54,000, but gave an  ordinary thief six years for swiping a  chicken. If the chicken were .worth  25c, and the same ratio maintained, a  man would need to steal over a million  to get clear with a month sentence.  SERENADE.  | j saints. The people are reported to be j engaged for that evening,  flocking to his standard aud believing  his gospel.  *' Our old friend James Greer who formerly flourished here, and who some  months ago went with rush to Poplar  Creek, has suspended the publication  ot that bright little sheet, the Poplar  Nugget. The Nugget plant is being  removed to Fernie where it is reported  it will be again set up under the overseeing eye of Ledge Lowery.  It is understood that a contract has  been entered into between t.ie Montreal & Boston Consolidated and VV. P.  Tierney, contractor, for the construction of a short piece of road from the  Rawhide, one of the M. & B.'s big  things, to the Phoenix uranch of the  C. P. Railway.  Grand Forks has recently received  two bits of encouraging news, both  important to that city and to the  Boundary. The first is that the head  office of the great Granby company  will be at Grand Forks hereafter. The  second is that Grand Forks will be the  Boundary divisional point of the Great  Nortnern Railway. Work on the company plans to that effect have already  begun.  The Harold Nelson company played  here two nights this week, Wednesday  night in "Heart and Sword," Thursday night in "Faust." The best that  can be said of this company is none  too good, and that.niay best be said in  this way. The company played to  bumper houses on both nights, the  audience on the latter occasion being  as large and as enthusiastic as that on  the former.  Business continues to increase for  the Canadian Pacific in the Boundary.  A new train has been put on for handling Brooklyn, Rawhide and Athelstan  ores to tne smelting plant of the Montreal & Boston Consolidated.  Tracklaying ou the  Great Northern  into   the  Boundary   is   being rushed.  1 The outlook is   good   for   trains into.  Phoenix before the end of 1904.  R.  "telegraph 'office" herei, is "now iii the"  local office of P. Burns & Co., while  Arthur Pro tit takes his former position.

Although some damage was done  to the scenery and one drop curtain  burned, few in the audience knew that  there had been a blaze. Harold Nelson  has blistered hands   to-day as a result.  The boys were out in force Monday  evening with all kinds of musical instruments senerenading Phil McDonald, recently returned with his bride.  Phil recognized the occasion as worthy  of his usual liberality and the boys  went home feeling that the world was  a pretty good place.  METHODIST CHURCH.  The pastor who is spending the week  in Grand Forks, will return before  Sunday and will conduct the Sunday  services at 11 a.m. and 7 p.m. The  Epworth League will meet at 8 p.m.  on Monday and the weekly prayer  meeting will be held on Thursday evening -.t 8 o'clock.
