Which  Indicate The  Dominion Copper Company Will  in  all Probability Furnish Ore.  While no definite announcement has  been given1 but regarding an3r successful termination ofthe negotiations  relating to the amalgamation of the  Dominion Copper company with the  Montreal & Boston company, it is confidently asserted by many that a satisfactory understanding has been arrived at, and that work will be resumed at the smelter and also at the  Brooklyn and Stemwinder mines at an  early date.  Private information from the east to  parties in Greenwood anrt Boundary  Falls convey the welcome assurance  that work will begin at the lower  smelter at the beginning of May, and  that any employees still resident at  Boundary Falls will be able to resume their old occupations by that  time.  With the exception of the Sunset,  all the mines from which the Boundary  Falls smelter drew their ore supply are  evidentally finding ample accommodation for their products elsewhere,  so that in case the 'smeiter resumes  work, the management will have to  look to other mines for a continuous  ore supply. This can be secured from  the Morrison in Deadwood camp as  well as from the Dominion Copper  company's properties in Phoenix,  where ten thousand ions are on the  dump awaiting shipment, aud where  thousands of tons are blocked out  ready for the stopers.  The efforts of the Montreal & Boston  company to effect arrangements for  continuing work at the smelter have  been followed with the keenest in-  teresCin the Boundary, as, apart from  the improved conditions resulting  from its operation, its generous  method of dealing: with employees,  and its policy of giving as far as possible its business to local merchants  has been much appreciated. The news  therefore that the company's efforts  have been successful will be very  generally welcomed in the Boundary  district.  I  Man by the Name   of  Christensen  Horribly Manirled Sunday Morning-  A distressing accident occured Sunday morning at the smelter of the B.  C. Copper Company, whereby an employes named Christensen; lost his  life. The small engine used in hauling away the hot slag left the track  near the trestle where the slag track  crosses the spur recently built to connect with Jthe converter; Christensen  who was running the engine was engaged with others in replacing it on  the rails. The front part of the loco  motive was raised and blocked up, and  in raising the rear end the front blocking gave way, the engine lurching  ahead istruck Christensen, who happened to be in front, and knocked him  over the dump to the hard slag foundation of the railroad spur below, brean-  ing his arm, hip and leg. In addition  to this he was horribly mangled about  the head aad sustained severe injuries  internally. The injured man was removed to the hospital and given all  medical attention, but he never regained consciousness and died Tuesday  morning at an early  hour.    De  ceased was a married man and leaves  a widow and a large family who have  the sympathy of the entire community  in their sad affliction.  The funeral was held Thursday  afternoon from the Presbyterian  church, and the large number in attendance bore testimony to the regard  in which he was held by his fellow  employees and citizens generally. The  brief but impressive funeral service  was conducted by Rev. Mr. McKee,  after which the remains were conveyed  to the cemetery for interment.  An inquest was held Wednesday  afternoon in the- court house by Coroner Foster over the remains of Nels  Christensen killed at the smelter on  Sunday morning. A jury consisting*  of Messrs. Rendell, Law,Brydges, Gal,  loway, Collins and Naden Were em-  pannelled. Geo. Collins acting as foreman. J. R. Brown listened to the  evidence on behalf of the relatives,  while I. H. Hallett appeared for the  B. C. Copper company. A considerable amount of evidence was taken,  and the scene of the accident viewed,  but nothing was elicited, except what  is stated above.  The testimony of the superintendent  foreman and master mechanic as well  as three others showed the hydraulic  jack generally used in replacing the  engine was ont of order and that a  Steele rail was used as a lever in raising the engine and putting it back on  the track, but hone of the witnesses  were certain as to the exact cause of  Christensen's falling from the trestle.  The jury returned an open verdict that  deceased came to his death by an  accident on the premises of the British  Columbia Copper comj any on Sunday  morning.  The smelter employees it the B. C.  Copper company's works may not all  be saints, but they have at least a proper conception of practical Christianity. When it became known that the  family of their late comrade Nels  Christensen would be left largely to  their own resource's, they at' once "put  their shoulder to the wheel; and in  short order put sufficient funds into  the hands of a committee to educate  the eldest girl up to a point wliere she  can earn a good livelihood for herself.  Oscar Hammar's   Life Crushed  This Alorninff.  Out  Another accident occured this morning at the B. C. Copper company's  smelter, which resulted in serious injuries to Oscar Hammar and gave a  vicious shaking up to his companion  Albert Soderstrom. The two men  were wheeling ore in cars from the  crusher to the ore bins; between the  two buildings, a distance of some  thirty feet, the U'ack is laid on a trestle  While passing over this with a loaded  car, the trestle gave way, and Ham-  mar went down with his car to the  ground below, a distance of some 16  feet. Soderstrom who was behind  with another loaded car was unable lo  stop it in time and it aud he went  through the break together. A number of Hammar's ribs were broken and  he is otherwise badly bruised. Soderstrom escaped with a few scratches on  his face and hanJs. There is a growing impression that the system of inspection applied to other industries  should be enlarged so as to include  smelters. It is unreasonable to suppose that accidents are hi every case  traceable to negligence or carelessness  on the part of employees. An inspection of the trestle wlien the accident occured this morning will show  that the structure was flimsy and unsafe, totaly unfit for the heavy traffic  that is constantly passing over it, and  would be condemned as such by anyone possessed of ordinary intelligence-  As we go *o press we learn from the  hospital that the injuries sustained by  Hammar resulted in his death at noon,  the immediate cause being a severe  hemorrhage of the lungs clue to the  crushing in of his side in the fall from  the trustle. An inquest will probably  ae held and the jury should under the  circumstances       investigate most  throughly all the causes leading to  the accident.  UR  Met in   Open   Session   on  Monday Evening  1 SHI II PROBLEM  And Many Other Matters Came Up  For Discussion.  The regular meeting of the city  council was held Monday night, those  in attendance being his worship the  Mayor and aldermen Bunting, Caulfield, Parker and McNeil.  Council received a delegation from  the Greenwood Base Ball Club, who  requested civic aid in their endeavors  to provide a suitable recreation ground  for the city. They ask that the city  undertake the enclosure of the grounds  with a board fence, which will require  about 12,000 feet of lumber to construct. The council deferred action  until next meeting when the base ball  delegation will present a report showing the conditions upon which they  can lease the grounds from the property owners.  Letters were received from the city  engineer regarding repairs to mains  on Church street, and at the bridge on  Greenwood street, also re repairs to  the Deadwood road, all of which vrere  "������pproved.  Communications were received from  the B. C. Copper Company authorizing  the council to draw on them for expense of fixing crossing of the spur  with Sutherland street, which work is  to be done under city supervision.  Council discussed the advisibility of  installing a new fire alarm system by :  the installation of telephones at various  points of the city, that will lead directly to the fire department, similiar to  the system now in vogue at Phoenix.  Eventually the city clerk was instructed to write the Phoenix authorities and submit the information to  the counci1 at the next meeting.  A discussion regarding the planting  of trees for shade and decorative purposes, revealed the fact that citizens  generally regarded such action as useless, as long as stray animals were allowed to roam the city at will. The  city engineer reported that the residents in Blocks I and J, were willing  to plant trees if the city would protect  them. This offer was on motion of  Alderman Caulfield, made applicable  to all portions of the city and accepted,  council agreeing to put up protecting  frames around any trees planted.  Constables were also instructed to  enforce the pound by-law, as complaints of the stray horse nuisance  have become very general of late.  The by-law relating to liquor licenses  was read a first and second time and  the quarterly statement of receipts and  expenditures leferred to the finance  committee.  The finance committees report was  submitted and adopted ai?d the follow-  accounts ordered paid :  Fire Department    $13 00  B. C. Gazette  ���      8 00  C. J. McArthur      12 00  J.

Per Year    2 00  Six Months  1 22  To Foreign Countries 2 SO  LABEL>  FRIDAY,   APRIT.,15 ,   1904  The present session of tlie  Dominion parliament is becoming'  remarkable for the nature of  petitions received asking- for  legislation that relate to the  g-eneral moral welfare of the  country. Deputations from the  W. C. T. U. have interviewed the  premier urging the passage of  more stringent laws regarding-  the obnoxious cigarette, which  practically amounts to the absolute prohibition of the manufacture, importation or sale of  cigarettes in Canada.  Delegations from the Lord's  Day Alliance have, laid before  the government a proposal aimed  at a better observance of the  Sabbath, and have secured from  the premier a promise that  legislation will be introduced this  session having- that object in  view. The proposed bi.l submitted by the delegation, aims at  -prohibiting.all laborexceptthose  ordinarily considered "works of  necessity and mercy." under  which head is included all manufacturing- processes liable to a  loss, if not continuously operated.  It seeks to prohibit all forms of  Sunday amusement and entertainment for which entrance fees  are charged, as well as Sunda}'  excursions for pleasure, rifle  practice, etc. etc., aud generally  aims at the restoration of Sunday  observance to a degree almost  puritanical. It may be that the  promoters of this class of legislation are actuated by high and  worthy motives, but there are  many who will doubt this and incline to the opinion that it looks  like an attempt to saddle upon  legislators and officers the duty  of doing by law what should be  accomplished in the home by  example and moral suasion.  Certainly the framers of the  proposed bill cannot escape the  charge of being considered both  thousrhless  and  selfish.    It may  be well to legislate cigarettes out  of existence, but how to spend  the Sunday is a matter that  should admit of a considerable  amount of individual choice.  Self preservation is a divine as  well as a natural law, and obedience to it compels members of  many trades and professions of  both sexes to spend their Sunday  in a way that the proposer1, legislation would absolutely prohibit.  Sunday observance should depend almost entirely upon the  nature of the employment followed during the week. Hard  manual labor on week days demand a rest on Sunday, while  those employed in factories,  hotels, stores banks, etc., naturally turn to tne park, the water,  the hillside and the various out  door amusements aud retire at  night the better for it, physicallj'  and morally. It is a poor and  mistaken kind of legislation thai  interferes with this priviledge  and for the benefit of the many,  workers iu Eastern Canadian  cities who would suffer through  the enactment of such stringent  laws it is to be hoped that the  measure if it does pass the house  will at least be shorn of its most  objectionable features.  As a result of a great deal of  discussion the Lead Miner's Association have passed a resolution  which has beeu endorsed by the  Kaslo, Nelson and Rossland  Boards of Trade, asking the  Dominion, _goy���erumeut"to_.extcn_d  the .payment of the lead bounty  to lead exported abroad, up to  the amount of 11, tons per annum. The reason assigned for  this is that the mines are iu  shape to produce more than the  smelters can now handle, aud  until enlargements at the various  smelters are made the lead output will necessarily be restricted.  The resolution has beeu strongly  endorsed b}r the various smelter  managers who says that by the  time the smelter facilities are improved and enlarged, the mines  will be, if allowed to export ore,  on a basis to supply them with a  tonnage that will admit of a  lower rate of treatment. In view  of this fact and that tbe smelters  agree to be iu a position to treat  all ore mined within a year, it is  confidently expected the government will acceede to the terms of  the resolution.  The Nelson Tribune (Conservative)   adopts   an   attitude   to-  ERNEST J. CARTIER, Proprietor.  Finest Furnished House in the Boundary  Steam Heated. Lighted throughout with electric lights.  We oiler special inducements to travellers as we have the  finest sample rooms in the city.    Our  bar  excells  all others.  wards the building of the Grand  Trunk Pacific that other tory  journals would do well to emulate. In a late editorial dealing  with this matter the Tribune has  this to say;  "The building- of the Grand Trunk  Pacific Railway, as speedily as possible, is almost as essential to the upbuilding-of Canada as was the building of the Canadian Pacific twenty  years ago. There should be no factious  opposition to the building of the road.  Had Canada waited a dozen years, better terms might have been made for  the building of the Canadian Pacific.  It is just possible, if a wait of a dozen  years was made, better terms might be  made for the building of the Grand  Trunk Pacific. If the building of the  Canadian Pacific had been delayed a  dozen years, what would Western  Canada be to-day? It would be a wilderness. The people have little patience  ���with political'faultfinders. Thev want  men in office to do things. The building of the Grand Trunk Pacific under  the agreement entered into between  the Dominion government and the  Grand Trunk Railway Company is a  step in the direction of government  ownership of railways. The step  might have been a longer one; but  great reforms or changes are not  brought about in a day. The people  of British Columbia should be a unit  for the speedy building of the Grand  Trunk Pacific Railway, and the political parly that opposes its speedy  building -\\ ill go down to defeat, as i1  should."  existing   laws  granted  At a meeting of the Canadian  Mining Institute held last month  in Toronto the president read a  paper on "Some suggested improvements in the mining laws of  Canada," that contained certain  suggestions of considerable moment to this province, It is pointed  out that uuder  hundreds of crown  mineral claims are lying idle, and  \Lhe development of the country  t\itf.s retarded. As a remedy he  proposes the imposition of assessment work to the value of $5 per  acre yearly, with immediate forfeiture to the crown in case of  non-compliance. While it might  be advisable to make some such  change in the law relating to  crown granted claims, it is safe  to say that any change embodying the above suggestion will be  vigorously resisted in British  Columbia.

LMy Boildto Tlte West Fort  The resumption ot work at the  Carmi mine, and the continuation  of the g-overnment wagon road  up to Beaverdell, has stimulated  interests in the "West Fork  country. Prospectors are al-  reacty leaving- to look after their  various interests aud indications  are that considerable development work will be done this summer. In addition to this, there  is every reason to believe that  the Vernon and Midway road  will be under construction at an  early date. Mr. Smailes who  lias beeu in London for some  time in connection with the financing of the enterprise is expected home very shortly. While  nothing- definite lias been given  out regarding the success of his  mission, it is generally rumoured  -that.-he Jias... succeeded Uninteresting English capitalists in the  scheme, and that an engineer  will accompany him who will  supervise the running of preliminary lines over tlie proposed  route.  It is further understood that  should the London capitalists not  undertake the work, other offers  from New York men have beeu  received which would insure the  completion of the road this year  as far as Beaverdell and the balance at a later date, well within  the time stated in the charter.  The building of this road will be  au incalcuable benefit to the  whole Boundary country, as in  addition to the money put in  circulation by its construction,  and the benefits accruing from  the saving in distance to the  coast, it will open up a mining  district which recent shipments  have proved to be one of the  richest camps in British Columbia.  TREATMENT  OF  SULPHIDE ORES.  A new invention lor the treatment of sulphide ores has been  made in Vancouver by one of its  leading mine owners, and a plant  with."adaily capacity of-25~ tons  and costing $15,000 has been completed to test it. It is said that  this class of ore, which is almost  limitless in tlie mountain ranges,  can be successfully treated uuder  this system at a cost not exceed-  in;;- 50 cents a ton.

WHITE  The 2nd Hand Man,  WON'T ENLARGE  President Miner Says No Addition to  Granby Plant Will be Made.  Mr. S. H. C. Miner, president  of the Granby Consolidated Mining and Smelting Company, has  denied the report that the company was about to make a very  extensive addition to their smelting plant at Grand Porks, B. C.  He states that the management  is not considering making an}'  enlargement to either the mining  or the smelting plants. These  have both been brought to practically completed units by the  policy of gradual increase which  the company has pursued steadily  during a number of years past.  The present plans of the directors is to give their close attention to the operation of these  plants steadily and economically,  with a view to realizing returns  upon the large investments that  have been necessary to bring the  company's works to their present state of efficiency.���Montreal Trade Review.  B. C. OUTPUT FOR 1903.  The summary of the mineral  production of Canada in 1903,  prepared (^subject to revision) by  the section of mines of the geological survey department, places  the^total value of metallic minerals at $33,797,403, of non-metallic minerals (including coke and  coal, $17,621,C>71) at $29,219,107,  and the estimated value of mineral products not returned at  $300,000, making a grand total  of $63,226,510. The item of $300,-  000 is left out of account in making the calculations that give  the following results: British  Columbia produced in metallic  minerals 36 per cent, of the Dominion total; in coal and coke 27  per cent., and in all non-metallic  minerals (including coal and  coke) 18 per cent. Further, if  the mineral yield of the Yukon  and British Columbia be taken as  together representing the production of what may be designated the Pacific slope portion of the  Dominion and be compared with  that of the Canadian territory  east of the Rock}' Mountains, it  will be found that the former  produced 75 per cent, of the year's  total metallic product or 47 per  cent, of the gross mineral product���metallic aud non-metallic  combined.  TO TREAT LEAD ORES.  Belgian capitalists have made  an offer to British Columbia  mine owners to erect works and  treat their lead ores for $10 a ton,  including freight. They want  the bounty kept for ores treated  in the Dominion.  Owing to washouts on the railroad the Clara Mathes Company  will remain here Saturday evening and will produce the world-  success the Resurection. Blanch  Walsh and Clara Mathes have  the original version that is full  of bright comedy and laughter so  cleverly introduced that the  beauty and intense interest of the  story is not marred. A number  of new specialties are introduced.  The Winnipeg Herald speaking  of the Resurrection says that it  "stands above other plays like a  tower." The press reports of  Clara Mathes production say that  it is superior to a majority of the  $1.50 attractions that have played the syndicate theatres this  season.  St. Jude, Church of England.

"Work lias been resumed on the Oro  Denoro mine jnder the direction of  Mr. j; McLellan. A number of men  are engaged stripping the surface preparatory co enlarging the two quarries  from which most of the ore is extracted. Shipments to the smelter will be  resumed at an early date  Messrs. Sid Starrer and Wm. Morrison of Camp McKinney who have  been on an extended trip through  Washington and Idaho returned lately  to the Boundary, well satisfied that  prospects here are better than in the  general run of. mining camps on the  other side. Starrer has taken a position in Flynn's barber ahop and will  movehis family here.  The'St. Eugene mine at 'Moyie city  will .likely be opened up at an early  date. The management is installing  new machinery and generally preparing for a heavy output, providing the  government agrees to extend the  bounty to lead shippers -abroad. The  mine has opportunities of filling big  foreign contracts, but acceptance of  all or any of them is dependant entirely upon the action of the government.  Mr. James Cronin the manager is however' so sure of the result that he ia  rushing the work of installing the  machinery required.  John Moran who with Geo. B. McAuley owns ' the Big Copper claim in  Copper Camp, is in town after a  winter's absence in the country to the  sonth of us. It is generally rumored  that he will resume work at the Big  Copper as soon as the conditions of  the roads will admit of transportation  of supplies to the mine. There are already hundreds of tons -of ore on the  dump and as the ore can be quarried,  - the same-asa.t-the Mother Lode,-.it-is.  more than likely the Big Copper wil1  this summer be a steady shipper.  Manager Thurston of the Carmi  mine has gone to the coast. When -the  Carmi was a shipper some three years  ago it was necessary to spend some  $3,000 in constructing a winter road  over which to transport the ore. This  road followed the south side of the  river and is a shorter route to the mine  than the road which runs through  Beaverdell on the North side of the  West Fork stream. Mr. Thurston  urges the construction of a bridge  across the river at a point where the  two roads meet, and in view ofthe  large expenditure that he made and  for which so far he has not been reimbursed, it is likely the government  will adeede to his request.  His Honor Judae Leamy came over  from Grand Forks on Monday to', hold  court. A . considerable, number of  cases were set down for hearing, but  only one was disputed. This was a  case between two Chinamen, and it  afforded the court considerable amusement., "Hop Chung" merchant of  Greenwood, sued '-Lim Jun," cook, of  Rock Creek for $37.95 alleged to be  due on goods sold defendant. An interpreter was secured and the case proceeded with. During the taking of  the evidence a Chinese spectator butted in. and informed the court that the  interpreter '"was talkee wrong." .This  led to a violent harrangue between the  two Chinamen that almost ended in  blows. Eventually peace was restored,  and judgement rendered against  plaintiff.  8$ i$ i  Iii  At   The   Present   Time IS var  there   is   no other  which will g|  brino- in such returns  as  this.   \i  The price of coal has gone up all over the world- the consumption is enormous, to buy in any working company  now costs a small fortune, THE INTERNATIONAL COAL AND COKE CO., is already a shipper and backed by some  of the strongest men in the country, witha conservative estimate of something like Fifty Million of tons of Coal in sight  is the one to put your money in,    Shares which can now be bought at a nominal sum will reach big figures before long,  I have still a few shares left aiid when they are g-oue it will be too late for the small investor to g-et in, if you want some  hing which will net you a good income, don't hesitate but buy at once. First come, first served. When you see the price reach-  three figures you will then realize that you have indeed missed a chance of a life time. I have also a small Block of Noithwest  Coal, another good thing as well as 3,000 shares of Denoro, this mine is bound to become one of the biggest shippers in tbe district  For-further information apply to       Ft    W��     McLAINE  Opposite the Post Office. GREENWOOD, B. C.  The   ore  shipped  from  the   Le Roi  mine  during   February netted $60,000.  James Marshall of Phoenix will resume work on the Lottie F. group on  Copper creek, at an early date.  Since first discovered the Payne  mine has snipped 50,000 tons of ore,  valued at over $3,000,000 .  Ore to the value of $175,000 was  shipped to the United States via the  port of Waneta during "the month of  March  In chunks of ore taken from the  Sweede group, Poplar, when pulled  apart, pieces of gold the size of hickory nuts were found.  Nova Scotia has produced since 1892  and up to 1904 gold valued at $16,4000,-  000. It produced in 1903 30,500 ounces  of gold, valued at 5550,000.  The Crow's Nest Coal .Company, has  contracted to ship 1400 tons of coal  daily from Morrissey via the Great  Northern to points in Montana,  The 40-stamp mill at the Nickel  Plate mine is nearly ready for operation. D. J. McNally, who has charge  of the mill construction, will shortly  leave Hedley City for Nelson, wliere  he will begin the erection of a mill for  a Nelson syndicate on Forty-Nine  creek.  _���TheL.NbrthportL-^juelta^^which Jias  been closed for a short time will blow  in the entire battery of furnaces next  week. Shipments from the Le Roi  have been resumed and the mine according to acting manager McKenzie  will be running with a full force in  ten daj''s time.  During the winter the Rico mine in  Sloean shipped 600 tons'of ore, out of  which a profit of S30,OOo was made. In  consequence of the breaking up of the  rawhide trails the winter force has  been laid off and development work  will proceed with a gang of 11 men.  of causing headaches, blurs on the  page when reading, dizziness, etc.  Come here and we will tell you if  your eyes are to flame and just where  the trouble is.

The Kettle river has reached almost  flood proportions. The waters of the  West Fork rose over three feet in one  day ^nd is still rising, while Boundary  Creek is now a stream of respectable  dimensions. In the , prairie country  and in the east floods are the order of  the day, and serious damage is reported from Winnipeg where the Red  River is running through a portion of  main street. Montreal is also a sufferer  from floods and general reports from  the east ^indicate higher water than  what has been known for several  years.  Humorous and slightly cynical was  Dr. Bernard Hollander in address on  "Love as a mental malady," given  before the incorporated British Phrenological Society recently. Love, he  said, was an unwarrantable predilection for one person, through others as  attractive existed. Its symptoms were  blushes and sighs, a distaste for food,  .wakefulness,^aberration ������in���. thought  and language, and, in desperate cases,  a yearning for poetry. The world was  divided, as thus: where the objeot was;  where the object was not. There were  many cures suggested for the malady,  which lasted, usually, six weeks. One  of them, Dr. Hollander said, had never  been known to fail; marriage was its  name.  Last night about nine o'clock the intake of the flume .became choked with  rubbish that Twin creek is at present  bringing down in abundance, and the  overflow soon threatened serious consequences to Greenwood street. Officers  Currie and Hallett with a number of  willing helpers succeeded in getting  the water way cleared, and to prevent  a recurrence, removed the grating  over the intake. This however proved ineffective. Sometime during the  night a partial stoppage again occured  some distance down the flume and the  overflow is at present turning Greenwood street into something that resembles a ploughed field after a  freshet. The city engineer ordered the  water turned down government street  where the longer grade will lessen the  damage done by the running water,  and relieve Copper street from any  inconvenience. The heavy rain last  night after the recent warm weather  is causing the street committee to look  anxiously now and then in the direction of Twin Creek.
