T  Monday   night   the   miners   in   the  Providence struck the ore in the crosscut run from the 300 foot level to connect  with  the lead.     In  sinking the  shaft to this level the ore was loft on  the hanging, the dip of the lead being  such that following it would mean the  loss of  the shaft as a working shaft.  The ore was therefore left and the shaft  sunk on an incline corresponding with  that from the 200 level up.    At the 300  foot level a crosscut  was  run to catch  the ore,  an  estimated  distance of 75  feet. This distance, however, has been  considerably  exceeded,  showing   that  the lead has faulted somewhere between  the 200. and 300 foot levels, the total  distance from the shaft to the pre being  something over 100 feet.  The ore from the new level is if anything richer than' any yet taken  from the mine, silver in all its forms  being present in aburidance. The  width of the lead is about the same,  and the local owners areljubliant over  the results achieved.    '   ���-  There has been a suspicion among  many that these small rich leads did  not go down, but even the most pesse-  misticare bound to admit that they  have been mistaken. The presence of  ore in the Providence at a depth of 300  feet has greatly encouraged the holders and workers of other high grade  claims in the immediate vicinity and  it.is more than likely that a great  numberof properties adjacent to Greenwood will be worked during the coming  summer.  "There are scoreti-of_claimsJi��re_Ayith  showings of high grade ore that justify  any amount of work being done, and  there is no reason why a dozen high  grade mines should not be shipping instead of the three we now have on the  list.  THE LATE OSCAR HAMMER  Funeral Last Sunday Was Largely  Attended���Inauest Held-  The funeral  of  the late Oscar Hammer was held Sunday afternoon at 2:30  o'clock from the Presbyterian church,  and  the large number in  attendance  was a striking testimony to the esteem  in which he was held by his fellow employees   aud    by    citizens   generally.  The Miners' union, of  which deceased  was a member, marched in procession.  The   B.  C.   Copper  company's works  were closed for the day to  enable the  men to attend.  The body of the church;  was occupied almost entirely by members of the union,  and  many citizens  desiring to attend could not find even  standing room.    The service was conducted by  Rev. Mr. McKee who spoke  briefly but very eloquently in impressing upon his hearers  the  uncertainty  of life and  the wisdom of being prepared for death.   After the service the  union again formed in line and the remains were conveyed to the cemetery  for interment, followed by  one of the  largest  funeral  processions ever seen  in Greenwood.

Work along these lines has been carried on in a small way for several years,  but it is only recently that anv extensive efforts were made to recover the  gold known to exist in bars all the way  down the Fraser,  Last winter several huge dredges were  constructed  at   various f points on the  Fraser, some of them  with a capacity  of 2500 yards daily.    One of these built  for the  lowa-Lillooet   Dredging company  has  been  at work  for some two  we;ks and the returns its given out by  the manager are almost startling.    In  the twelve days  in   which   the dredge  was operated the returns have averaged  40 onuuees daily for each   snift of ten  hours, and it is claimed by the management that 100 ounces of   gold   could  easily   be  secured  on   a day's  run of  twenty-four hours.    That L-; something  in.the region of S2000 daily.  The newsof the successful operations  conducted ou the bars of the Fraser  river ought to be of more than ordinary  interest to the Boundary in view of the  fact that the Kettle river is known .o  be rich in placer gold. Away back in  . the sixties large amounts of gold were  1 taken front the Boundary and Kock  creeks, aud even yet the latter creek is  mined for ph'cer at various places extending from its junction with 'he  Kettle to points up near Camp McK'ui-  Iney. All along the Kettle from Kock  creek to Cascade City values can be ob-  ��� Ah inquest was held at the Court  Houseon-.Saturday.to inquire.into,the  cause of the accident which occurred'  Friday morning at the B. C. Copper  company's smelter, resulting in the  death of Oscar Hammer.  The jury, consisting of Duncan Mcintosh, foreman, John  Mulligan, Will  Hanna,  A.  C.  McDonald,  R. D.  McKenzie and David Hunter, viewed the  scene of  the accident before listening  to the evidence.   A large  number of  witnesses  were  examined and several  of them subjected to searching questions by J. R. Brown  who appeared on  behalf of  the Miners' union.   Briefly,  the eviSence~was"~t"6J_the"e'ffect'ithat''a'  trestle spanned the distance between  the crusher and  ore  bins on which a  car   track   was   laid.   "Originally  the  trestle was supported  in the centre by  two upright posts and  the end by a  shorter bent resting on  the   ground.  That to secure material for foundation  of converter the centre bent had been  removed and  truss  rods substituted as  a means of support, that sufficient earth  and rock had been removed to render the  endbentfotindationuselee.and thatas a  consequence the end of the trestle gave  way beneath the weight  of the loaded  ore car.  The jury after an hour's deliberations returned the verdict "That deceased came to his death by the falling  of a trestle improperly supported, and  recommended that ihe company immediately make such repairs as were  necessary in crder that the trestle be  safe for traffic."  Mayor Naden, Aldermen Caulfield.  Bunting and McNeil, City Solicitor  Grey, City Engineer Johnson and City  Clerk Taylor were comfortably seated  in the council chambers on Monday  evening, it being the regular meeting  night of the council.  The minutes of the previous meeting  were adopted as read.  Under the head of communications  the first to be read  was one from the  Vernon & Nelson Telephone company  regarding the installing of a fire alarm  system.   Now, a fire alarm system is a  necessity  in  Greenwood,   and   L.   B.  Hodge, local manager of the Vernon &  Nelson, was there in person to explain  the workings of the system which his  company  is  anxious to install.    The  system is a very simple  one, wiies being run from different sections of the  town to the fire hall where an instrument is installed.  Ordinary telephones  are placed in weather proof boxes-and  fastened   on   the   poles   at   whatever  points may be decided on.     In case of  fire all that has  to be done.is to ppen..,  the box and' ring "the bell which will'  give direct communication  with   the  fire hal1,  when  the exact location of  the fire can then be given to the man  in charge there,  thus saving valuable  time.   The  cost of installing such a  system in  this city would  be  in the  neighborhood of $200, and the re'ital of  each  instrument  is placed  at $1   per  month, the company to keep the system in repair after it is installed.  After going into the matter the city  fathers referred it to the fire department-  Dainty pastry at Munroe's, made by  the best baker in the Boundary.  I. 0. 0. F. ANNIVERSARY 1904.

Take a little Nerviline in sweetened water and away  iroes the palpitation. Yotfll be saved  Tots of worry by keeping Nerviline on  hand, which is a treasure for all sorts  of aches and paines. Nerviline cures  headache, stomach and bowel troubles  quickly-    Cssts 25c   for a large bottle,  Upon being asked as  to his opinion  in regard  to  the system Chief Hallett  said it  was   practically only an excuse  for a fire system or little  better than  none at all.      He pointed out that even  should he be called up by such a system  it was as. bad  as using an  ordinary  telephone, for, as is generally the case  when called  up  for  a fire, the person  calling     was     so    excited    that    he  could not get  the location,  and therefore they would not give the number of  the box in this case.    In his opinion it  would   be   a   useless   expenditure   of  money, aud by idding a little  more lo  it a. proper fire alarm  could  be put in  and it would be the cheapest.  Phoenix has this system installed  but a letter from the city clerk stated  that they had had no occasion as yet to  test it.  The next communication read was  from Munroe & Munroe, financial  agents, Montreal, asking if the city  cared to take up in advance any more  of the debentures they held. It was  thought by the council that the city  was in shape financially to redeem  87000 worth of such and thus reduc*; the  city's indebtedness.  City Engineer Johnson reported��to  the council in regard to damage done  in breaking of flume by the rush of  water coming down Twin creek. He  stated thv t $100 would replace flume to  Summit street with improvements, and  that 350 or S60 with the aid of the city  team would repair the streets. He was  I instructed to see that the work be  j carried out.  |     He mertioned the fact that the bank t  I of Boundary creek near the Auditorium  j had fallen in and suggested the putting  | tip  of  a   railing  until   the   bank   was  | repaired.  i     Mr.  Viliandre  of   the Central   hotel  ! on Government street  entertained the  Wk  Continued on page five,  %Z*^f*e& Jt��^��4i**sE��a  ��  AA.&0��� BOUNDARY   OREEK   TIMES  S~ "We  live  to eat, and eat to Live" is an old axiom ~S  S~: but in order to live you must get the best to eat, ~s  g= TRY   OUR 2  I tt Sis, l!

It lias been contended for the  Libeial government now in power  at Ottawa that the interests of  the laboring men have receiver!  more attention from their hands  than was ever accorded by any  previous government. That this  is a fact can be proved by a review  of the work done, and by a per-  us.al of the Labor Journal issued  monthly by the department of  labor. That this fact has been  and is appreciated by laboring  men generally is evidenced by the  sentiments expressed b}^ journals  whose primary object is place before the public the views of laboring men. In a recent article  dealing with the extreme party-  ism exhibited by the Toronto  Globe, the Rossland World draws  comparisons between the statesmanship of Gladstone and Laurier  .very much :i_ito_,..th_e.iadvantage., of  the latter. It declares "Laurier  worthy of backing in 99 cases out  of a hundred; that the Liberalism  of Laurier is an Imperial' and a  great thing, and that he will be  remembered as an Empire builder  when the other man's name is  forgotten."  Such unstinted commendation  coming as this does from Avhat is  practically a labor organ, must be  a severe disappointment to such  papers as the Westminster Columbian which is vainiy endeavoring to arouse hostility to the  Laurier government among working men because of the disallow-  ance of the provincial acts relating to the restriction of Japanese  immigration. The World evidently is willing to concede what  the Columbian has failed to comprehend, namely, that we are  only a part of an empire and that  we must be Avilling to give and  take in the game of building it  up;    that  it is not only impolitic  but unwise to press for legislation  irritating and insulting in character to a nation that is a close  ally of the empires, and that  while it may be well to protect  ourselves from all forms of Asiatic  immigration, the necessity for so  doing is not so urgent that we  need press for it at a time when  it will clash with imperial interests. The efforts of the Columbian to stir up opposition to the  government on a plea of this  description will fall flat, partly  because the necessity for disallowance is well understood in the  province and partly because it is  too generally known that the  passage of the bill itself was  purely for campaign purposes as  the local government were fully  aware of the fate of the measure  before it had ever passed the  house. We advise brother Taylor  to try a different tack.  and to attempt to disfranchise  voters because of temporary absence from home, for short periods  ranging from three weeks to six  months, is a violation of the spirit  of the act, unfair and unjustifiable, and will have a tendency to  introduce into the contest a spirit  of bitterness that is uncalled for  and unnecessary in a fight of this  description.  Of course there is not the  slightest chance of the court sustaining this contention, but if by  any chance it should be done,  Liberals who ma}' find it necessary to be absent during the revision of the list should, in crder  to be free from disfranchisement,  file a declaration of their intention of returning with the president or secretary of the Conservative association. Blanks will or  ought to be given on application.  MISDIRECTED ZEAL.  The leaders of the local Conservative association are certainly  deserving of commendation for  the zeal they display in looking  after the interests of their party.  In their efforts to work injury to  the Liberal standard bearer they  have placed a new interpretation  on the elections act, which, if  sustained by the judge of the  court of revision, will add a new  worry to any individual who may  have the misfortune to travel be-  yond���theJimits,of the province of-  British Columbia. According to  these modern political Solons,  when a voters travels takes him  beyond the geographical limits of  B. C. he should leave some guarantee that he is going to return,  otherwise it is right that he should  be disfranchised. Acting upon  this brilliant idea the local Conservative magnates have filed  with the collector of votes objections against the names of  eighteen citizens being retained  ou the lists, the grounds in nearly  all cases being given as "absence."  It may be worth noting that iu  all except one case, (and that one  through a mistake) the parties  objected to are good Liberals, so  that evidently this new law applies onljr to individuals of that  political persuasion. It is only  just to say that some of these  names should be removed, and removed for the reason given; but  to most of them it will not apply,  TEL  ERNEST J. CARTIER, Proprietor.

Mr.  Borden in a recent address had  been making copious quotations  from a document known to have  been stolen from the railway department. Questioned about it  by members of the house he claimed that the document had been  placed in his hands by responsible  parties, but he refused to give  any names. The leader of the opposition thus finds himself in an  awkward position as in addition  to using information obtained in  a manner hardly to be commended, he is bound to refuse information to the department that would  lead to the detection of the criminal, and is thus deliberately  screening a thief and standing in  the way of justice. It is unfortunate that such an incident has  been brought to light, as the general public, regardless of party,  have a desire to see their leading  politicians above such petty and  questionable practices as those  which the recent exposure has  shown up.

Toronto has experienced the  worst lire in the history of the  city. Fire broke out on Tuesday  night in one of the big wholesale  warehouses and before it was <rot  under control had swept out of  existence the principal warehouses of the city and put 250  linns out of business for the time  being. The area covered by the  fire is three blocks in length and  from half a block to two blocks iu  width.  All told 114 buildings were de-  stoved and it is estimated that  0000 people are thrown out of  employment.  Help was sent from Hamilton,  London and other Canadian cities  as well   as   from   Buffalo   on +he I  American side of the line, but the  combined efforts of the firemen  were unable to check the flames  until the wholesale quarter of the  city was in ashes. The loss is  estimated at $.10,000,000 with a  total insurance of $7,000,000. The  city is in no sense dismayed at  the catastrophe, but arc already  beginning to clear off the debris  and arrange for the reconstruction of the destroyed buildings.  The year 1904 so far is a record  year for great fires, and it is generally expected that a heavy raise  iu fire insurance rates will be initiated by all insurance companies as a result of the recent losses  they have sustained.

Tbe  district between Revelstoke and  Vernon is fast filling up with  new settlers and in many parts of  the adjacent country new settlers  are arriving daily. It is pleasant  to note that the new arrivals are  emigrants of the best class, and.  in two instances have brougiit  with them sawmills, which they  have set up and are cutting all  the material necessary in the construction of their home and farm  buildings.  It is to be regretted that the  wild lands of British Columbia  are still uusurveyed, and that  little information is obtainable in  the various government offices regarding laud at the disposa'. of  the department. While a proper  survey of these lauds would no  doubt cost considerable the gov-  ,ermiieut_.wj3uM3e4usti.liecl _in^ex-.  pending any reasonable amount in  surveying- all unoccupied lands,  and iu furnishing their officials  throughout the country with  maps of each district so that intending emmigrants can secure  the information necessary iu the  choice of laud, more readily than  is at present possible. Another  matter apt to be confusing to new  corners is the amount of laud held  as railway reserves and as grants  already given to railway companies. These grants have been  maivy and large and no proper  surver of them has ever been  made. The consequence is, settlers looking for laud arc unable  to tell where they are at, and being unable to get any information  from local men, give up in disgust and gb somewhere else.  Steps should be taken to remedy  this state of affairs, and every  effort made to place before intending- settlers the desirability  of this province as a place of settlement, so that British Columbia  will secure her share of the vast  tide of immigration that at present is flocking into .eastern  Canada.  i   THE GROWTH OF IMMIGRATION.

The many customers of the Maxwell  Photo Co. will regret to learn they are  closing their studio for an indefinite  period. Mr. aud Mrs. Libby came to  Greenwood from Spokane four years  ago and during that time have been  doing1 a successful business in Greenwood, giving perfect satisfaction in  artististic portrait work. The closing  of their siudio will deprive the Boundary people of being able to secure first-  class work in photography. ltf.  J. M. McCloskey, who some two or  three years ago lost his eye sight in an  accident in the mines in Phoenix, will  appear in Greenwood on Friday and  Saturday evenings, May Sth and 6lh,  with a comedy company including a  band, of which he is manager. Favorable reports have been received from  various points where the company has  showed, and as Mc is well known, his  enterprise under the circumstances if  nothing else should draw him a bumper  house.  The waters of Boundary creek are  still dangerously high and are liable to  a still greater rise if the prevailing  rains continue. A considerable wash  out occurred along Silver street, which  is being repaired by the city authorities. Below the bridge leading to the  warehouses, the creek made a vicious  onslaught on the west bank and undermined one of the untenanted pleasure  palaces which creened backward into  the creek and is only kept from going  down stream by a wire cable secured to  a telephone pole. At present it resembles a Russian warship after the  Japs have  had an outing.   It is likely  ;:the owners will be requested to remove  it from its present dangerous position.

The nature of the bond  is not known at present but it is surmised it represents a large figure. The  opening c-f the Lost Lode claim is a  welcome move to the people of Boundary Falls.  J. C.

It is  the intention of the management to  ship a trial carload this week and the  method of development will depend  largely upon the returns obtained.  Mr. Haas will more than likely spend  the summer in the Boundary.  W. T. Smith, who has a reputation  for interesting outside parties in mining affairs, will shortly begin operations on some properties in Summit  camp in which he is part owner. W.  T. did not spend the whole of last  winter in the east for nothing. It is  understood he has substantial financial  backing and as the properties in question have a good showing of ore we  may confidently look forward to the  prospect of having another shipper  from that camp before the season  closes.  The B. C. Coppe**" company have received five of the nine carloads of  machinery to be used in their new converter plant. The work of installing  the machinery will be started immediately.

An  item in last weeks issue relating to his  consulting a Spokane specialist might  be construed as a reflection on the local  physician who attended him. This  was in no way intended as such. It  may not be out of place, however, to  remark that the treatment jeceived  there was identical with that received  here and wan cordially endorsed by the  specialist mentioned.
