The regular meeting of the city  council was held on Monday, evening,  those in attendance being Aldermen  Bunting,'McNeil and Parker with his  worship. Mayor Naden in the chair.  The city solicitor and city engineer  were also present.  The minutes of last meeting were  read and adopted.  A communication was received from  the B. C. Copper compart}- re Sutherland street crossing and forwarding  check for cost of work. The city clerk  read a communication from Alderman  McKenzie tendering his resignation  as his unavoidable absence from the  city interfered! with' the duties of his  position. The matter was held over  until next meeting and council appointed a committee to interview  Alderman McKenzie and request him  to reconsider his decision.  A letter from E. G-. Warren .was also  read containing an offer to install in  Greenwood a fire alarm system of the  staudar'd in use in iharry other cities of  Canada, the installation to be under  the supervision of the chief of the fire  department. Under Ilu system as explained by Mr. Warren boxes will be  placed ou poles at various points in the  city each communicating direct  with the fire hall. In each box is a  leaver, which on being released, striken  the gong in the fire hall, also indicating the number of the box; six boxes  of this description to ccst S23C, or ten  $330 if that number be required.  The matter was referred to the tire  and light committee.  The follbwing.accounts were ordered  paidT" Ku^elt"Lawl^ifield Co7l52;3()7  J. McBain $42,00.  The committee appointed to investigate the.alleged damages sustained by  the Central hotel through the recent  overflow of Twin creek, reported that  no permanent injury had been done to  the premises. The city solicitor advised that as the city had taken all  possible steps to prevent injury being  done it was in no way liable and that  no payment as damages should be  made. The-claim was therefore dismissed.  There being no other business before  the council the meeting adjourned.  slightly in favor of the owners, and a  small reduction was made in the value  of the improvements. The land  valuation was, however, allowed to  stand.  This practically ended the business  of the revision court, and the meeting  adjourned. It is felt that while the  levy may be considered high, the assessment is. equitable and fair, and  distributes as evenly as possible the  taxation necessary to conduct the business of the city.  ODDFELLOWS AT CHO  IjC(H  Eighty-fifth Anniversary of the Order  Observed Last Sunday-  Boundary.Valley Lodge No. 35,1. O.  O. F., celebrated the eighty-fifth anniversary of the.birth of Independent  Oddfellowship by attending in a body  the evening service in the Presbyterian church. Previous to the service  the members, with visiting brethern,  met in their lodge room in the Wood  block, (aove-nnient street, and forming  in line, with Bro. J. A. Rus?ell as  iniarshall, matched to the church in  full regalia. The sermon by Rev. Mr.  McKee, the chaplain of the order was  appropriate to the occasion, the subject mattea being of special interest to  Oddfellows. The work of the past  year was reviewed and brief mention  made of the total results accomplished  since the order was foundered, which  gave a genera' idea of the powerful influence for good that Odd fellowship  has exercised wherever a lodge exists.  During the offertory Miss Gaunce  and Mr. Whiteside rendered "Lead  Kindly Light" with pleasing effect.  Judging by the large turnout the  local lodge here must be iu flourishing  condition, nearly seventy being in the  line of march. The .work of the order  is. being carried on very enthusiastically and the officers look forward to  "the coming year as1 a banner one for  Oddfellowship in the Boundary district.

The dance given by the  club" "last" "Tuesday ^evening "in " the  Masonic hall was largely attended,  there being over sixty couples present.  The curlers made use of .the entire  building in enlertaiug their guests,  the ground floor being used for the  dance, and the up stair rooms for reception and dining purposes. Both  were tastefully decorated, and in that  line exceeded anything ever before  seen in Greenwood. A tasty lunch  was served at twelve o'clock, and the  prizes won during the winters matches  were presented tothe various fortunate  individuals. The music provided by  Messrs. Harris of Greenwood, and Mr.  and Mrs. Bush of Midway, was excellent, the lloor was in good shape, and  the large crowd thoroughly enjoyed  themselves until well into the " wee  suia hours."

News comes from Toronto of a consolidation  of mining  interests in the  Camp McKinney distiictthat is  of as  much importance to that   camp  as the  Montreal & Boston scheme is  to the  Boundary  country.     It  is  announced    ���  that an agreement has been arrived at  whereby   the    Kamloops,   Minnehaha ������������  and   Sailor   mining   companies   come  under one  management   and   resume  operations in all of the properties'men-;, .  tioned.   Some two years ago the Sailor  and    Minnehaha    companies     joined  forces and an attempt was made to dis  pose of sufficient  stock  to provide a-  working capital.      This, however, was  not successful,  and  nothing   came of  the merger so far as working the properties was concerned.  At the time the Kamloops suspended.,,  operations  a considerable  amount of  money  was on   hand in the  treasury.  At a late meeting of the management  it   was   decided   to  either effect some  .arrangement with tlie other two propr  erti'es or disburse  thc'amouti't;on Ha'Su-"'  among the stockholders and go out of  business.     The   result   has   been  the '  consolidation  of  interests above mentioned, and in view of  the circumstances of the various properties it is'bound-;,,.  to be of mutual advantage.  The Sailor,.,  claim is known to possess rich ore, the  Minnehaha has a capital plant consist- '..  ing of an 80 h. p. boiler, good hoista'nd'.  seven   drill   Ingersoll-Sargeant   com-'  pressor,   and   the Kamloops  company  has money on hand to provide working ;  capital.    The  arrangement   has   been  effected at an opportune lime, as Camp"  .MsKUAlL?.3L- ^i1S^-J^i>-.-'lira5iic4iix^.'-?|f��r.il.'  serted of late. Last fall the Cariboo-  shut down after establishing- a recfcird.  as one of the best dividend payers-.irf.  British Columbia, and this year the  Waterloo pulled Mieir pumps until  more territorj- could be secured.  There is ore  and lich  ore in abundance in the  Camp  McKinney distript,  but it  has been unfortunate in that it  has been the scene of .some of the most  outrageous   wildcating ever practised  in the country.     The reopening of the  Sailor group will go a long way toward  renewing confidence in  the camp, and.  it  will   not  take  lontr for   legitimate,  mining to demonstrate that McKinney  property is a good investment.    Some  little time must  elapse  before the'deal  ���  involving these properties is completed, ���-.:  but local  stockholders of  the  various,..,  corporations    assert   confidently   th^t , .  work will  be  begun  on  the Sailor at  least, some time in June.  William  Fowler  has  resumed work  on the   Defiance  claini.    Last  season",  work on this property was  greatlyini-. ���  peded   by   surface'  water   which   Qve,r-  flowed from the small lake on   the  adjoining claim, the unusual  amount -of  rain keeping the lake much   above  its'  iiormal'-Vinuiicr l;vel.    In order tb pro--  vide against a recurrence of thesecon-  ditions, Mr. Fowler has   purchased the  entire  steam   plant of the Marguerite'  mine   in    Deadwood    camp   including  hoist, pump and drilling  machine,   as  well   as  other   mining  paraphernalia,  and is installing them on the Defiance.  ��� When completed the Defiance will be  | one of tlv tvst equipped little mines in  : the Boundary, and its promoter will be  I in a position to develop another pro-  I perty. that has every indication of be-  ; ing on the shipping iist at an early  jda'.e.  ,      Mr.   Ti-.-.i:--!-.:-.   ti:e   manager of- the  ��� Carmi   mine arrived   in  town on Tues-  Continued on page ^.

This does not look as though  the manufacturers had any very  serious grievance against the  Lauriei administration.  Now iu regard to the duty.  The woolen industry of Canada  is protected by a tariff of 22.92  per cent on British imports and a  still higher rate on goods coming  from the United States. In view  of this fact it can hardly be  charged against the Liberals that  they are hostile to Canadian industries. There is a very general  disposition to reasonably protect  home industry and encourage  home enterprise, but none but the  most fanatical will advocate the  imposition of a prohibitive tariff  on woollen goods in order that  half a dozen Ontario manufacturers may profit at the expense of  the people of Canada.  ^ffffiTOYfflfflTO^  CP*  CP*  CP*  CP*  CP*  CP*  CP*  CP*  CP*  e*  CP*  CP*  CP*  <��*  CP*  (p<  CP*  CP<  CP*  CP*  CP*  ��� ��  Capital, all paid up, $13,973,560.

Address The Columbia, 630 Monon,  Bldg., Cl-icago, 111. ml-6t  FRIDAY,   APRIL 29, .W04  Judging by the tone of the opposition press it is  evident  that  the Conservative party intend appealing to  the electors   against  the return of the Laurier administration solely on the tariff question and the Grand Trunk Pacific  railway scheme.    The  principal  Conservative organs  in the eastern provinces teem with editorials  ^setting forth the.disastrous effects  the..Fielding  tariff has   had on  Canadian industries, and as proof  of the veracity of their assertions  they point to the closing down of  the Canadian Woolen mills aud  to the  temporary shut-down of  other minor  business concerns in  various parts of the Dominion.  It is not so very long since Conservative speakers in different by-  elections were twitting the Liberals ou their failure to reduce  the tariff as they had promised to  do when in opposition, and their  so called failure in this respect | address at  was cited as an example of the | held in Toronto last October:  wilful disregard of pre-election j "No other country in the world  pledges by Sir Wilfrid Laurier I in proportion to the population  and his chief supporters. Now, J has shown such  on the eve of  a  general election, j in its trade and  against the injustice of the  Fielding tariff, and frantic appeals to turn out of power the unpatriotic rascals who delight in  the destruction of Canadian industries.  In view of the repeated assertions that the present administration is hostile to the manufacturing interests of Canada, and that  Canadian industries are handicapped as a result of the tariff  changes, it will be well to read  what the manufacturers themselves have to say on the "matter  and to see what the duty is on the  articles produced by the firms  that lately suspended operations.  First as regards the opinion of  the manufacturers, the following  from the address of the president  of the Manufacturers Association  at their annual meeting, August,  1902, may be of interest: "While  the past 3rear is fairly described  as Imperial, it has been a banner  year in Canada. Never was our  country injsp ..prosperous, a_condition. Canada's external trade for  the fiscal year ending 30th June,  is reported to be four hundred  and twenty-three millions of dollars, an increase of thirty-eight  millions,��� being ten per cent.  Of manufactures, the preliminary  returns place the increase at 15  per cent., so that the increase in  our industrial exports have more  than kept pace with our phono-  meiial increase in other depart-  ���ments."  And again from the president's  the  annual   meeting  Not the SHetitest Dancer  In using Dr. Hamilton's Pills of  Mandrake and Butternut for constipation or piles.

By the .taking up of 3120,000  worth of bonds, and the purchase  of 1,000,000 shares as bonus stock  Charles Sweeny is expected to  secure control of the stock in the  Sullivan Group Mining-company.  Stockholders who have not  turned in 20 per cent of their  stock to the treasury, according  to the call made some time ago,  will be asked to do so. Most of  this will be used as a' bonus to go  to Mr. Sweeny for taking up the  bonds. The , money from the  bonds will be used to complete  the smelter and start the mine.  In addition the stockholders must  place 1,000,000 shares of stock in  escrow, which Mr. Sweeny can  take up before July 1, 1905, on  the idle list. Under the proposed  management the work will be  rushed to completion and as there  is a vast amount ox ore already  blocked out, it is only reasonable  to look for the Sullivan to be  among the shipping list before  the close of summer.  paying 15 cents a share. The  company is capitalized for $3,-  000,000.  Senator George Turner is president, and J. C. Williams secretary oi the company.  Barney Layton, vice president  of the company, has been in Spokane for the past week, negotiating the deal.  The Su.livan is one of the big  mines of British Columbia ranking in importance with the St.  Eugene and North Star. A large  amoutit of money has been* spent  on the property in mining operations and in the construction of  a smelter for the treatment of the  ores. This however is not completed to a point where it could  be utilized, and for a considerable  time the whole thing has been on  The big St. Eugene mine at  Mayie city East Kootenay resumed operations last week, and  this week the concentrator began  work. When the mine closed  down between three and four  hundred men were employed in  the mine and around the various  works. While it may take some  time to get under full swing, it  will not be very long until a  similiar number are again at  work, as everything indicates its  being worked to its full capacity.  The town of Moyie is. .putting on  new life; hotels are full, vacant  houses are filling up, and business is increasing by leaps and  bounds. The St. Eugene is one  of the greatest lead mines in the  world and next to the Le Roi and  Granby are the biggest employers  of miners in B. C. The impetus given the silver-lead industry by the Dominion lead  bounty legislation is extending to  East Kootenay as in addition to  the St. Eugene, preparations are  being made to re-open the Sullivan group of mines which  should materially assist in making this a record year for shipments of silver-lead ore iu British.

The speaker affirms  that notwithstanding the statements  that the country is prosperous and the  inhabitants well to do, there is gross  injustic: existing, in the present system  of conducting affairs, in that those who  are responsible for the production of  wealth are despoiled of the proceeds of  their industry He condemns both existing political parties for their failure  to properly legislate on this matter and  declares.his belief that the only way to  correct all these abuses is through the  agency of Socialism. While much of  the subject matter is not new to Greenwood audiences, the speaker handled  the subject well and held the close attention of the large crowd throughout  its entire delivery.

Work has been  going on for some t::r?p at the mine  making the necessary repairs preliminary to resuming work underground.  Considerable damage had been done to  the buildings and part of the roof of  the boiler shed crushed in by the  weight of snow. These have been all  repaired, the machinery put in order  and'the mine ready for un watering.  This will be accomplished in less than  two weeks time. R. C. Longley, the  superintendent, leaves today for the  Carmi, and in a few days will be followed by several miners and a black-  .smith and hoistman whom he has engaged to work in the mine. Two drifts  will be run on the lead at. the ISO foot  level in which machines will be used,  aad sufficient development work done  so that when transportation facilities  improve the mine will be.in a position  to become a steady shipper.  Messrs. Gaunce and Wickwire of  Gieenwood, and Smith of Anaconda  '. Who hold a bond on the Trilby mineral  claim, adjoining the E. P. U., have  made arrangements for the continuation of work on that property. A large  amount of prospecting was done on  ;<this claim last summer and until late  !in the autum, when winter ' stopped  ���further operations; Owing to its close  proximity to the E ;P.-U. and the fact  .that the lead from that property must  eater the Trilby, the latter is looked  upon as a winner. It has also the advantage of being mined by *a tunnel  'on the lead, and if smelter returns  come! any way near Sample assays the  Trilby should soon take i ts place as a  shipper.  ���, At.the annual meeting of the Montreal and Boston Copper company, Limited, 'held in MohtrealrWednesday the  stocWholdes voted in favor of the proposed merger with several British  Columbia properties.  Arrangements havei;been completed  whereby a syndicate will secure the  control of the properties' to be consoli-  da.ted.and turn them into the new corporation, which is to be organized.  The new company will be known as  Montreal' ;and Boston Consolidated  Mining & Smelting company. The  capital stock will be $7,500,000, of  which- $1,000,000 will remain in the  treasury for future needs of the company, and $1^500,000 deposited with the  Knickerbocker- Trust company of  ���New  York,, for   exchange - with  the  /shareholders of the Montreal & Boston  Copper company, Limited, on the  basis of one share of stock of the new  company for two shares of the Montreal    &    Boston   Copper   Company,  ^Limited.' i.The..balance,^of- $5,000,000  capital stock is to be issued to a syndicate, who will turn in the properties as  above, and also pay  into the treasury  ��� of the company $150,000 cash for working capital.  The $5,000,000 capital stock to be de-  : delivered tothe syndicate is in consider-  tion of the syndicate turning in the  total capitalization of the Dominion  Copper Company, Limited; Morrison  Mines, Limited; Athelstan  & Jackpot  -'Gold Mining Company, and a three-  quartei interest in the Emma Mine.  Should the syndicate be unable to turn  in the capital stock of.these companies,  t;he share consideration in the new  company to be issued to the syndicate  will be reduced proportionately. The  companies to. be acquired are all producing properties and have been thoroughly prospected and developed.  , An agreement with the knickerbock-  THE RICHEST  PROPERTY IN  GAMP OF MANY  RICH MINES  There is not a Stronger or Richer Ledge  in  the  Wonderful  Poplar  Creek Goldfields than the Spyglass Lode  This is the unanimous opinions of every expert who has  group.

For further information apply to  Iffl  er Trust Company was submitted  which is to be signed by the shareholders in forwarding their shares to  be exchanged for the shares of the  new company. Pending the issue of  the new stock, a temporary interim  certificate will be issued by the Trust  Company.  Among the men who are to figure in  the consolidated company are said to  be Hi H. Melville, of Boston, vice-  president of the Great Northern railway of Canada; J. W. Allison, of New  York, president of the National Leather Company; J. N. Greenshields,  Montreal, president of the Shawini-  gan Water & Power Company; William Mitchell, Montreal, president of  the Pennsylvania Coal Company, of  Canada; Thomas Crockett, Riviere du  Loups, Canada; Colonel G.

Jessup, president Eastern Trust  Company, New York; John Macder-  mid, Montreal, and John F. Plummer,  New York.  It was reported in Spokane last week  that as soon as the merger is under  way important additions are to be  made at the Montreal & Boston smelter, including the erection of a fourth  furnace and a converter plant that will  give a capacity of 1,500 tons per day.  Under the new arrangement it is believed that all of the smelting operations of the new company will be performed at Boundary Fall, B. C, where  the Montreal & Boston has sever il furnaces completed.  It is believed that a coal property  will likewise be secured in order to enable the company.. to manufacture its  coke and thus prevent a repetition of  the shut-down experienced last year by  the company's inability to secure sufficient coke for its furnaces.

The civil war which has been carried  on    for    some    time    between    Mark  Christianson   and   Thomas   Wake   of  Boundary Falls reached an acute stage  the other day, and  as a  result one of  the participants will have a short term  in the Nelson  goal  in  which to think  about his sins.    The subject matter of  the long standing dispute is the route  to be taken by  the  road  that leads to  the  Wake  residence.     In a   previous  altercation over this matter Christian-  son got somewhat- the-worst of-itandf  had Wake arrested and bound over to  keep the  peace.

The appointment was in  the nature of a surprise to H. B. as  well as to citizens generally, but is:  none the less appreciated on that account. The position is a good one,  carrying a substatial salary and  travelling expenses, and will entail an  absence from Greenwood for some six  months. It is generally supposed that  he will be assigned to the mineral.department, and in that capacity should  be able to accomplish good work, as  his- long residence in B.

At this point the winter  road constructed, three years ago by  Mr. Thurston, joins that recently built  bv the government. The government  was under obligations to either refund  the amount spent by Mr. Thurston Jor  build the road along the route proposed  by him. The bridge is evidently a  compromise.  .
