 Vol. 7.  GREENWOOD, B. C. FRIDAY, DECEMBER 12, 1902.  No. 16  y  Further Good Returns From the Providence���Waterloo's Clouded Titles has Been Cleared���Abercraig  Bonded���Rumored Amalgamation.  Mark F. Madden, president of the  Providence Mining company left today for his home in Chicago. He is  naturally delighted with ' the bright  outlook for ^he mine. ��� The returns  from t\>e last, shipment of 16^ tons  were received .. .an Thursday. This  shipment netted the cbmfSany $2197 or  an average of S13ji a ton., The mine is  now being'worked on a larger scale.  Next Monday is pay day and as there  is 17 men on the pay roll it means the  distribution of a .considerable amount  of moheyin the city.' This force will  be increased as the mine is developed  and the shipments of high gra.de ore  increased. It will not be long until the  Providence is paying dividends as the  receipts - from'��� the ore at the present-  rate will soon rneet the purchase price  of the mine.  wood, has been leased under -working  conditions to' four local miners. The  owners early in the current year shipped a couple of tons of gold quartz ore  from this claim to the smelter and. re:  ceived encouraging returns. The claim  is situate on the hill overlooking  Greenwood, on.the eastern side of the  ���valley.. '-. ���'-.' '.-'���  It appears as if the Waterloo Consolidated Mining<.& Milling ��� Co., Ltd., of  Spokane, is at last in a fdir way to-  wards-getting, a clear title to the Waterloo claim. : Th<S: reports published from  time to time to the effect that the claim,  had been jumped, that the jumper had  good grounds to believe that-he would  succeed againststhe company,-and that  he had .been-offered i a cash consideration to withdraw,, although professed  ly ridiculed by the company, seem now  to have had a substantial: basis.  The position >\ as that on August 22.  lasif', Geo, -M. Belinfit recorded his loca-  tioh'af a"cl.aim'at Camp-McKinney; he  had mamed-.the Fractional Waterloo  Fractional* mineral .claim. Accomp-  anyihjg his: affidavit; re location, etc.',  was a plan-which^showed his' location  to take in all the ground known as the  Waterloo Consolidated Fractional mineral claim, this;being- the projperty the  new WaterloOiGompany was; supposed  to have acquired from-the old Waterloo  Company and on which are the stamp  mill, tramway, hoist, shaft, etc., of the  Waterloo mine..;\On October 18th following Benhet's location of the ground  Rupert B. Venner-recorded location of  the: Wellingtonrr"FfacttWarclaiin"wahd  the plan accompanying-his affidavit  showed'his location to covfer.practically  the same ground as Bennet's. Recently there were filed for record two conveyances, one from R. B. Venner to  the Waterloo Consolidated M. &,M. Co.  Ltd.,-;.of ���Spokane,' of" the Wellington  fractioti, and one from G. M. Bennet to  the.sime company of the Fractional  Wit Jrl<5i>.Factional claim. . The stated  consideration given to Venner was $265  and that to BeiWet $1000.  After Bennet made his location  Forbes M. Kerby. surveyed for the company the claim known as the Waterloo  Consolidated Fractional, and applica  tion.was made for a certificate of improvements, which is preliminary to  obtaintner t of a crown- rrant. Bennet  however, instructed Hallet & Shaw to  take'steps to-prevent the issue of the  cerfi'dcate of improvements to the  Waterloo Consolidated Company. The  action taken was the issue of a writ to  obtain an injunction forbidding the  ���\V*aterloo Company trespassing on Ben-  net's1 claim,; .which, as stated above  covers the Waterloo mine, and for a  declaration thBt the company's Waterloo .Consolidated'.. Fractional claim is  uot-a valid claim. These proceedings  are now to be discontinued, so it wou d  appear that the company has bought  off the jumpers and is now to be left in  undisturbed possession.of the Waterloo  mine and equipment. /This should be  a matter of satisfaction not only to the  shareholders in the company directly  interested, but the general public as  well, the Waterloo beingavery promis  ing mine and one that will likely shortly aid the adjoining Cariboo mine in  its good work of returning dividends  to shareholders and so demonstrating  that it is possible to mine at a profiet  in the Kettle River Mining Division  E. Wentworth Monk resident agent  for the .Hamilton Powder company haB  returned from a trip which extended to  Penticton and Hedley City. He found  the west thriving and those interested full of confidence that with transportation -facilities their min in g ' properties would soon pay them for the  years of waiting. At Hedley City all  ls.bustle on account of the big eater-  prises of the owners of the Nickel Plate.  The right of way is cleared for the two  arid half miles tramway from the mine  to the 40 stamp i'mill which is being  erected at Hedley City. The mine ia  about 6000 feet above the mill. The  first portion of the tramway from the  mine will be run by electricity but the  last mile comes quickly down the steep  mountain side and will be ' run oh the  gravity system. The foundations are  ready for the stamp mill which will be  hauled from Princeton during, the winter.. . * '   -���-. ���*'���' ^ '���:"'-. V" ���������' '���  -At Fairview good progress.is being  made by the New Fairview corporation  with the installation of the big cyauid*  plant. But.few miners are employed,  at present,' but with the completion of  the cyauide plant a full forccwill be  renewed.  The good old Cariboo, a* Camp Mc-"  Kinney is quietly working away. The  mine never looked better and has every  indication of paying dividends for ser-  eral years. The Waterloo is also looking well and now that the cloud in the  title has been lifted, there is good reason to believe that the almost discouraged shareholders will yet see good returns for the money invested.  Copper company or that I have sold to  him a single share in that company.  Up to the present these'reported consolidations and purchase* are merely  in the air, like many othe business ventures. As I said before, I,may be able  in three months to truthfully nay that  the consolidation has taken place.  ('Asregards our visit to the Boundary ^  crfcek mines; I will say that-'I believe it  to be the greatest low grade'orecampln',  the country (that the ore* there are being treated at less cost than in any other  low grade camp in America. This low  cost of treating is due to the low cost of  coke and other reasons. All of these  features have been investigated by us1  and are likely to form an important'  feature in our report."  Mr. Undewood and Mr. Thomas leave;  Spokane this morning for Utah and Col--  orado, where other mining properties'  will be hiirredly examined. Their in-!  ten tion is to be in New York in time for  the British Columbia Copper company's  directors' meeting two weeks from yesterday.  Jjy P. Graves of this city, managen  ofi the Granby smelter interests, when;  asked about the published consolidation!  reports said: "It is (absolutely untrue  that we have consolidated with the British Columbia Copper company. I saw  Mr. Underwood at the Hotel Spokane  only a few minutes ago and he mar  confirm what I say. He can give some  interesting information, probably, regard ing the Boundary creek camps and  future|improvements, but we have not  consolidated. I imagine these stories  have been started in New York by  brokers to boom stocks.

Jas. MeMillan and Sarah  Venetta Hackett, both of Phoenix.  Regarding the reported amalgamation of the big mining properties Mr.  Underwood was interviewed by the  Spokesman-Review. Mr. . Uuderwood  and Jilr.-Thomas were on their'way to  New York after visiting the mined of  the district. Mr. jjUnderwood is  credited with the following:  '���There is absolutely -no truth in the  accouuts published in the eastern pap-  that these big companies have consolidated, but within three months the consolidation talked of may be effected  Our board of directors meets in New  York in two weeks and at that time  some business of great importance to'  to the camp is likely to be accomplished.  Mr. Thomas, our consulting engineer,  and I will make our reports ,and ask  that certain measurs be adopted.  "I wish to deny positively that C. A.  Starbuck,- president of the New York  Air Brake company, has bought out  my interests in the British Columbia  GoOd Work Done fey Rev. W. A. Robins ia England.  A meeting of the congregation of St.  Jude'sChurch of England was held in  St., Jude's hall on Tuesday evening 9th  itYst,-'' There ;wa* a f air^attendance,. and-,  a very satisfactory statement of the  finances of the church was submitted.  The creditable showing the accounts  made was chiefly due to the exertions  of the rector Rev. W. A. Robins, M. A.  who during his recent visit to England  turned what was supposed to have been  a holiday vacation into an active campaign for thebenefit of the church.  The proceeds of lectures and other pub  lie efforts of Mr. Bobins, together with  donations he received, totalled about  $1940. Apart from the monetary return  th as obtained, numbers of- people-were  interested in tooth the local church and  Greenwood itself.  Since Mr. Robins return from England the church committee adopted his  recommendation to contribute $200 to  the general fnnd of the Diocese of  Kootenay, which includes the Boundary, and to donate $100 to the funds of  St. John's Church of-England, Phoenix, Mr. Robin* having started the  church mission in that town and  worked it up until Rev. E. P. Fie well-  took charge. A letter of thanks for  this timely aid was received from Mr.  Flewelling. The debentu ��� debt on St^  Jude's hall of between $600 and $700  has been paid off, and $1000 has been  set aside as a nucleus of a building  fund for a substantial church building.  The church is out of debt on its general  expenses account. The recent sale of  work and entertainment netted about.  $310, which left the general fund of ihe  church $240 at credit.  Rev. J. R. Miller who was pastor of  the Presbyterian church, Photnix until  a few months ago, has received 1;: call  to the Presbyterian church,  Nanaimo.  J.J. Caulfield of the Russell-La w-  Caulfield Co., has returned from a trip  to Manitoba and Toronto. He reports  most'prosperous timesin"Manitobo.  The Greenwood skating rink which  is being conducted this season by the  citizens band will be opened on Monday evening next, The band will be  in attendance. The ice is in good condition.  Fred. W. McLaine, who went to New  York last month to consult a specialist,  has written to relatives here that he  had had an operation for appendicitis  performed and that he . came through  satisfactorily He~ahd~Mrs~. "McLaine  expect to return to Greenwood shortly.  Chas. Dagman, who was injured la.->t  month by falling through with the ore  h�� was dumping from a railway car  into one of the ore bins at the Greenwood smelter, is about again, though  bearing the marks of numerous cuts  and bruises made by the ore falling on  him. He will likely be able to return  to work iu the course of a week or so.  The doll fair held under the auspices  of the ladies of the Presbyterian church  was a good success. The dining room  of the B. C. Hotel where the fair waa  held was tastefully decorated. All the  dolls which were tastefully dressed by  the ladies found ready purchasers.  Dinner was served to a large number  of people. An impromptu programme  was rendered. The fair netted over  $100 to the church.  .*.-x~x.**<��:~:��xk��:"X"X^  Boundary Ore Shipments.  l)  The Abercraig mineral claim, owned  by G. Arthur Rendell of Eholt and J.  N. Paton and G.

Philip McDonald, well known in  Greenwood as one of the proprietors of  the Arlington hotel, is applying for a  license for the Oakland hotel, Midway,  which house was built and for some  time kept as a hotel by C. N. Owen,  I' nueriy of Kaslo. 'Thepremises have  br-.-n unoccupied for  a  year  or  more,  ut with the prospects of the V.

Last  year the eye was accidently burned by  molton slag whilst Erickson was at his  wOrk ��r6tiud~the"furna^  Spokane and later to Minneapolis, getting temporary relief, afterwards returning to work at his usual occupation.  Now the eye is giving him so much  much that, it is feared it will have to ' e,  taken out.  The men. Green and Dixon, on remand on a charge of killing 'leer in ex  cess of the number allow e<l under the  frame Protection Act, appeared again  this morning before Police Magistrate  Hallett. Ow ng to the difficulty in obtaining conc.'usive evidence the prosecution decided to withdraw lhc charge  for the time being, intending to bring  it on later should the necessary testimony against the accused be forthcoming. This prosecution will at least  have the effect of in some measure  stopping the slaughter of deer uplvette  River within 40 or 50 miles of Rock  Creek.  G. G. Cunningham and A.

Northern  The first step towards the establishment of the new Grand Trunk Pacific  Railway will be the appointment of a  Provisional Board, who will make the  formal application to Parliament for a  charter of constitution.  This will not necessarily be the permanent Board, and may indeed consist  of Grand Trunk officials and whoever  outside that organization may be selected.  That Mr. Hays will be President of  the new Company seems to be taken  for granted by those who are familiar  with railroad precedure. It is true that  some Toronto organs have mentioned  the name of Hon. Senator Cox in the  connection; but what may be described as the better informed opinion inclines to the belief that at a later stage  he will figure as Chairman of the  Board.  Experienced railway men who ha- e a  knowledge of the origin of the movement and the forces that are behind  it, assert with great assurance and  confidence that the Canadian Northern  will form the nucleus of the new  scheme.  The real owners of the Canadian  Northern are, it is stated, Senator Cox,  of Toronto, and Mr. James Ross, of  Montreal, and their associates, who  have financed the system through the  Canadian Bank of Commerce.  The firm of Mackenzie & Mann were  the constructors, but thev were contractors, and not the owners, although  they hold an interest in the road.  They are not practical railway operators, but builders merely and they  have very few railway men in their employ. No reflection whatever ��� is cast  upon their business sagacity or upon  the manner in which they have conducted the system up to the present point  so far as it has been opened; but Mr.  Ross ond Mr. Cox are said to feel that  their financial interest in the undertaking is so great that it must be put in  the hands of the most enlightened man-  _.agement.availahle. :���^ ^���,-.-- ~���_.���..-._, .-^..^  This is why the Grand Trunk was  approached by these magnates, and not  by Messrs. Mackenzie & Mann, who  have had, as all parties have agreed,  nothing to do with the negotiations  with Mr. Hays.  There is really very little more behind the movement; but any one can  see how strong  the new road  will be  We are on the firing line again with our handsome  Holiday Goods.

WHITE,  with all the subsidies received.and to  come that the Canadian Northern nucleus carries with it from Dominion and  Provincial govern ments.  With the Canadian Northern as the  basis, and with Grand Trunk management is very clearly shown by the following despatch which came to hand  from Toronto this morning, and which  is regarded in railway circles here as  correct.  ''Negotiations are now pending between the Canadian Northern and  Great Northern railways, which are  expected to reach a successful conclusion shortly, and by means of which  the Great Northern will obtain an entrance into Manitoba over Mackenzie  & Mann's road.  The accomplishme.it of this will give  the. American ,road.an.���opportunity.of  competing in Eastern Canada against  the Canadian Pacific for freight into  the Western Provinces, something  which heretofore it has been unable to  do. The Great Northern has at the  present time passenger connection into  Winnipeg to St Paul, running over the  lines of the Canadion Pacific from  Gretna, but the new arrangement with  Kdnzie & Mann are driven for' the time  being to make the best' arrangement  possible.

The real reading of this despatch is,  say railway men to whom it was shown  that the Canadian Northern have not  the equipment necessary to handle -the  grain traffic from Winnipeg over their  own line - to Port Arthur. Were-it  otherwise, they would' never give up a  haul of 430 miles from Port Aarthur to  Winnipeg for one of 60 miles from Win-  nipeg-to~St.-Vincenti---In other -words,-  th'ey would never give up 40 cents for  12 cents when they have the liue built  that would give them the longer haul;'.'

AN AMUSING ERROR.  The British editors who have visited  B. C. have written entertaining and  withal wonderfully accurate descriptions of the province and its resources.  Ia minor matters,errors have crept in,  ���ome of which are decidedly amusing.  Jamea Proudfoot who represented the  Glasgow Herald has written some capital letters, but w hen he reached Grand  Forks, he like many another g-oo'd man  got a bit off. After describing the  beauties of the little valley town, he  discovered a most remarkable blot on  her escutcheon. The blot to quote his  own words was revealed by the frank  announcement that secret societies are  represented by the Knights of Pithias  (whoever they may be), the Oddfellows  and the Foresters.  It is aaid that a Scotchman cannot  appreciate a joke; it may be equally  true that a Scotchman makes jokes that  no one else can appreciate. Mr, Proud-  foot may hare been joking; if not he  certainly took a scunner at the work  secret, and likened those fraternal  bodies to theE uropean Nihilists, Clan-  aa-Gaels and such like folk. Had he  made enquiries he would have discovered that the mission of these secret  societies is to relief distress, comfort  the afflicted, nurse the sick, anc1 educate the orphan.  L.AND GRANTS TO RAILWAYS.  The announcement that the Grand  Trunk will be extended to the Pacific  coast and the subsequent announcement that the company who will build  the line, intend to ask the Dominion  and the various provinces for aid in the  shape of cash subsidies and land grants  similar to those given the C. P. R. and  -the Canadian Northern is one in which  all the people are interested. It is not  a question for those who will be contiguous to the railway when built but for  ail the people of Canada. There  have been grave doubts in the minds  of many people regarding the wisdom  of state aiding any railway; a larger  number are convinced that it is high  time the practice was discontinued.  The present system leads to all manner  of corruption and it is not the most  meritofious proposition that wins but  the one with the greatest pull. E. V.  Bodwell K. C. when a candidate for the  aufferages of the people of Victoria  proclaimed his belief that land grants  were all right when hedged around  with proper restriction. He pictured a  Utopian scheme where big railway projects could be carried out, where large  grants of land could be given, but  where at the same time a revenue could  be secured for the province and the  land made available for the settler at  reasonable terms. Bodwell and his  Utopia fell because of the fearful onslaught of Messrs McKenzie <5k Mann  who wanted land grants and cash subsidies without any reservation whatever. The policy is bad and no amount  of restrictions or reservations will make  it good. What is wanted in this prov-  incc is a general lawaippliotable" tb'all  railways. When such a law is enforced  then the parliament and the government will cease to be troubled by pro-:  feasional subsidy hunters and charter  mongers.  In contradistinction to our policy is'  the one in force in the state of Washington. A general railway law is there  in force under which railways may be  built without spending enormous sums'  of money in securing railway charters;'  at the same time, the granting of large'  areas of   public   lands to railways is'  never suggested. They have more  railways than we have and they appear  to have no difficulty in securing more  when the development of a new district  warrants construction. They have  even gone a step further. They are  now endeavoring to secure such legislation as will effectually regulate the  rates on all railways.  The granting of aid to transcontinental lines whose objective point is the  Pacific coast in order to secure a share  of the oriental trade   is peculiarly objectionable.   Why should this province  practically   bankrupt   itself and  give  away a   large   portion  of   its   native  wealth to railway companies who have  already >:xpressed their- determination  to reach the Pacific coast through' this  province.   Surely if it is at all necessary to aid railways that aid should go  to secure   transportation   for   districts  that do not lie in the wake of transcontinental lines.   The C. P. R., the Canadian Northern and the Grand Trunk  are fit subjects for proper regulation  and control and not for public charity  The mistakes of the past we must honestly face but there is no good  reason  why an unwise policy should be perpetuated.   We should be prepared to wel  come all railways but at the same time  we should guard with jealous care the  heritage of the people.  000O0OO0O00000O000000O0000��O000000O0000O0000OOOOOOOOO  OO00O0O000<H><)<X>0<>0O0OO<K>0O<M)O<>0<X>O<>0O0000O00<>00O0C "  Established 1836.

Many think it unnecessary  to devote particular attention to the teeth until the  appearance of the mouth is  affected by damaged, decayed or broken teeth. 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  satisfactorily if one or more teeth  are tender, inflamed, decayed, or  othervise out of working order;  and if this be the case, the mouth  requires immediate attention.

He gave a graphic de  scription of how he was injured many  times in the mines. He said one of his  legs was no better than a wooden one;  he had only one eye, his hands had  been crushed, ribs broken and skull  fractured.

During the  six years, she said, she kept her children at school, and when the eldest  child was 14 years of age she sent him  to the mines to help earn the daily  bread. At the end of the first month  the lad brought home his wage statement, showing that the mother owed  $396 for back rent. The boy's wages  for the month had been taken off the  bill, and he came Home emptyhanded.  She submitted to this, and in the course  of time her next boy was old enough  to help earn a living, and he, too, was  sent to the colliery. Like the older  brother, the second boy received no  pay. his earnings being deducted for  rent.  The tears of the mother on the witness stand were by this time welling  up," and when she added that the money  she earned for cleaning the Markle offices was never given her, but was  kept by the company for rent, the com  missioners looked at one another in  surprise. She said it took the three  of them 13 years to make up the debt,  the mother's earnings from neighbors  being the principal contribution toward  the maintenance of the family. The  debt was cleared last August. During  the six years, from the time her husband waa killed until the time when  the firfct boy went to work, the company  never asked her for rent. This con-  eluded the mineworkers'case against  G. B. Markle & Co., except that Mr.  Darrow read and had placed upon the  records of the commission John Mar-  kle's statement to President Roosevelt  at the time of the now famous confer-  house. This was last month, when the  atmosphere on the Hazel ton mountains  was quite cold. His wife became worse  Medical aid was kindly furnished free  by a Hazelton doctor, but it did not:  help her much.  "We were greatly worried because of1  our having been turned out of the  house, and one night," he said between  sobs, "she died,"  "She died;" said Judge Gray, who  was pacing to and fro across the room  as he quickly turned as he heard the  man's last words.  "Yes sir, she died, and I buried her  yesterday."  All the commissioners and many of  those in the court room were much affected by the old miner's story. The  witness went on to say that he did not  know whether the centenarian was  alive today or not. She was in a- bad  condition owing to her daughter's death  when he left the house last night.  No one cared to cross examine and  Judge Gray said:  "That is all, Mr. Coll, and that's  enough.

Samson of Greenwood  and is situated about half a mile above  the city hall. It was bonded last summer to Sutherland and McDonald who  look out about ��2,000 worth of ore. The  ore runs high in gold values. Mr.  Fassett and his associates have made  a substantial cash payment and the  figtue mentioned in the bond is a large  one. They "are to commence work immediately and sink a shaft 100 feet in  depth.

SlJ^l    ]})3J:  The London Daily Mail has the foi  lowing to say regarding the recent B.  C. Loan issue.  "The British Columbia loan issue as  we intimated yesterday, was a fiasco.  The colony gets its money, forthe loan  was underwritten, but the underwriters are in tlie unpleasant position  of having at the moment 80 per cent  or so of the scrip to look at. Nor were  the results of the Natal loan tender  any too satisfactory. Of the ��1,500,000  of Threes offered the underwriters are  left with over 60 per cent. The  average was only ��94 Is. Id. The  applications only reached ��1,919,700 in  all. It cannot be said that there  is any particular cause for regret  that these colonial borrowers have had  such a chilly reception. The market  and Lombard-street are slowly recuperating after the heavy demands made  on them during the war, and capital is  gradually accuniulating,but conditions  are not such that there could be another  big rush of borrowers in the near future without exercising a strong adverse  influence on investment markets as a  whole. It is most satisfactory, therefore, to find the check administered.  FOR SALE.  Eight room house, on Silver Street, Fisher's  addition, Greenwood, B.C.. cheap lor cash, or  on easy terms.

The'* Right of Co-owner to  Protest  Affainit Advertising Out-  la 190C the legislature added a section to the Mineral Act which prorides  for the advertising out of co-owners in  mineral claimfwhen these co-owners  ncfffleet or' refuse to contribute their  share of the coat ot assessment necessary to hold the mineral clainis. The  ���ection has jrprked very well and it  was- not untit this week reviewed  in the courts..^County court was held  here on Tuesday last, His Honor Judge  Leaiay presiding. After some unimportant cases-were disposed of, that of  Collins va. Bradshaw was considered  Bradshaw ia a hotel keeper at 20-mile  in the Similkameen district. He and  Geo: H. Collins are interested in some  promising mining claims on 20-mile.  Bradshaw inserted the usual notice of  ���_^forfititure_iin vthe Jiimilkameen^^ Star,,  stating that he had performed so much  work on the claims and that if Collins  failed or refused to pay his portion of  the expenditure: together with cost of  advertising,Coll ins' interest should become vested in Bradshaw his co-owner.  Collins claimsd that he advanced sums  of money at various mines in connection with the mining claims,that Bradshaw was indebted to him and through  his solicitor A. S. Black appeared before Judge Leamy and asked for an injunction restraining Bradshaw from  continuing the forfeiture proceedings.  The learned judge granted an injunction pending the trial of the action.  When the case came upon Tuesday A.  M. Whiteside appeared for Bradshaw.  Mr. Black asked for an accounting and  the Judge appointed James S. Birnie,  Mr. McMynn's assistant, to go into the  the accounts between Collins and Bradshaw. Mr. Whiteside asked that injunction be dissolved because if theac-  countiug showed that Bradshaw was  iudebted to Collins, any proceedings of  forfeiture would fail. Mr. Black pointed  out that all Baadshaw had to'do was  file an affidavit of publication with the  Mining Recorder and Collins interest  became vested in him. He could then  transfer the entire claim to some one  else and Collins would have difficulty  ia securing his interest, in any event  as the filing of the affidavit is taking  as proof of forfeiture, an innocent third  party might suffer.  His Honor said it was the first time  the matter came up in B. C. courts and  consequently there was no previous  ruling. Thelaw was copied from theU.  S.Mineral Act and there were no doubt  numerous esses there. He thought the  injunction should not stand,because the  o forfeiture proceedings must fail if the  accounting was in favor of the plan-  tiff Collins. Finally Mr. Whiteside  gave an undertaking that no transfer  of the property would be made until  after the accounts were taken, and tbe  injunction was dissolved.

It was only last  week that the current was turned on  enabling the Granby smelter to run all  its furnaces. Previous to this, two  furnaces >vere idle because of insufficient power. In addition, the Granby  mines and the Snowshoe mines were  going to use Cascade power to run their  big plants.  Owing to the accident it is likely two  furnaces will be blown out at the Granby smelter and shipments again curtailed.  Chas. H.

Few, if any, seen in Greenwood have  gained as many friends in the theatrical profession as that fascinating little  actress May Sargent, who will be seen  as.theoily scheming "coquette, "Tielka  Van Sittart," in "Other People's Money." She is queen of all she surve3rs.  This is her lirst Western appearance.  The following tribute was paid her  by a prominent newspaper critic last  season:���"The Scottish poet might  have had such another as pr'etty May  Sargent in his mind's eye when he  wrote the well known lines:  "To see her is to love  her,  And to love her but forever,  For nature made her what she is  And ne'er made sicanither."  Miss Sargent's modiste, Madam Gi-  annie of New York, has made an extra  effort in designing Miss Sargent's  gowns for this present tour, and they  can honestly be pointed' to as the epitome of the dress-maker's art.
