Mr. Buchanan-  wired the various Boards asking for  an expression of opinion regarding-  the advisability of the Associated  Boards attempting to effect a settlement. A meeting of the council of the  Greenwood Board of Trade was held last  Saturday afternoon when it was decided that in the absence of particulars regarding the merits of the strike,  the Greenwood board deemed it inadvisable to interfere. This decision  was wired to Mr. Buchanan and since  then nothing further has been heard  regarding the matter.'  Since the above : was written G. O.  Buchanan, president of the associated  boards of trade, has issued a call for a  meeting of the executive of the associated boards to be" held at Fernie, on  Wednesday, the 16th instant, at 10  o'clock in the forenoon, for the purpose of seeing what steps may be  taken to bring about an arbitration of  the dispute between the Crow's Nest  Pass Coal company and the miners.

' "The Fernie strike has throwjl several'  "hundred coal   miners  out of employ-;  merit.-It haa closed nearly, every mine  in Kootenay  and the Boundary district.     Several of the smelters'-are already closed and all the others must  follow unless the strike is settled. The  �� Fernienjiners, have succeeded not only  ��� ia>; throwing themselves i out i of   emi  ��plbytheht but thousands of their fellow-  workers.     But the influences  of  the  strike go further.    The earning- power]  , of v the: r-various districts having  been  reduced ito: an  enormous extent, business men feel the blighting: eflects of  "'the strikk   Many miners have left the  coiintrv thus reducing;- pur population.  The   output   of   the   mines   has been'  practically wiped out-a loss of revenue'  rto, the: provincial-government.     The  i effects of the strike are so varied and  -^fa'r reaching' that it is not a question  .between employes and employed, be-.  tween the Crow's Neat Pass Coal com-;  pany and the striking- miners but a  question in  which all are directly in-  ' terested.   It is rather a striking com-  *meh tary on our boasted advance leg is-:  jation that a few miners in Fernie can  practically tie up every industry in the  - most important section of the most important province.   The merits of the  "strike'need not be discussed here, but  ,we_do say that because the miners at  fernie st anted-to strike or the company  want to close down their mine the  -entire mining and smelting industry  " should not be compelled to await their  .pleasure.  -  , In the first plac, the Crow's Nest  : Pass Coal company have secured in  the words of William Blakemore "an  inheritance never equalled on the face  of the earth. The 50,000 acres of coal  land held by them constitutes a mine  of inexhaustible wealth that seems  likely to endure for all time." If these  were the only coal measures in the  country who would say that the company had the right to neglect or refuse  to exploit thetn and thus make it impossible to operate smelters in these  mining districts ? It is equally absurd  to say that smelting and the mining  . industries must be at a standstill because the company and its men cannot agree.  The situation has demonstrated two  things. First, that the Dominion  . government should see that a portion  of its coal areas are opened up, so that  the mining and smelting industries  shall .not be entirely dependent upon  the whims or fortunes  of either the  - Crow's Nest Pass Coal company or its  men, and second, the rights of the  public are of greater importance than  those of the coal company or its men.  When   they   decide   to    quarrel   they  - should be forced to refer their differences to an impartial tribunal, and  forced to act in accordance with the  findings of that tribunal.  There  is   no good reason why the  - Crow's Nest Pass Coal company should  hare the  smelting    industry   in   the  ' hollow of its hand while thousands of  acres of coal lands remain undeveloped,  neither is there any good reason why  compulsory arbitration should - not be  made law in this country.  GEO; McL. BROWN.  Has Sir Thomas Shaughnessy de  cided to -follow* his o\vh advice, and quit  politics ? It looks that way else he  would never hare given Geo. McE.  Brown his well deserved promotion.  Mr. Brown has been appointed superintendent of the hotel and dining.car  service of the C. P. R. a position to  which little work and a large salary is  attached. Geo. McL,. will fill the posi-:  tion'satisfactorily but;where, ohlwhere-:  is the C. P. R. going to get a new-  executive officer ? No man in British  Columbia understood its politics better  than Geo. McL,. Brown. As executive  officer of the Canadian Pacific he waa  a regular attendant at the long and  varied sittings of the legislature. He  was there in the interests of the C. P.  R. and a most dangerous man he was.  Geo. McL. has winning ways. He1 is a  good fellow. He has no difficulty in  ingratiating himself in the hearts of  even hard hearted legislaturs and he  generally succeeded in defeating projects antagonistic to the C. P. R. interests. The genial George McL,. will  be missed in Victoria and elsewhere in  the proviuce.QIt is a good thing that he  has been. promoted and a still better  thing if no successor is appointed*  NOTICE.

Debs' Diatribe.  r  ;> ; ;t  :.V'S  Provincial  Progressive   Party  Does  Not Suit Him-  Eugene V. Debs has paid hisrespcsls  to the receutly organized Provincial  Progressive Party. In a letter to the  Cmadian Socialist published at Vancouver he says :  "The trip I have just concluded in  British Columbia was remarkable for  the large attendance at the several  meetings, and the great enthusiasm  which marked the proceedings at each  point. There has been a great change  since my previous visit the province,  a little over two years ago-  "While an undercurrent of opposition was felt, it really amounted to  little, and did not get above the surface  anywhere. The only thing in this line  I deem important enough to mention  is the Provincial Progressive party, a  middle-class' movement,which proposes  to take the short cut to power and distribute official': favors. * In this party  are to be found anarchists, single-  taxes, direc1: legislatibnists, cast-off  capitalist politicians and many honest,  but misguided men, who know little or  nothing about socialism. The party  promises those who. are inclined to  socialism that it is the very party  needed at this time to lead up to socialism.'' In" the' next breath it assures others, who are opposed to socialism, that it is just the party to  head off the socialist movement.  The platform may be properly ���-described as a jat of mixed pickles. It  is realy. a curiosity. Among other  things it provides that judges and  other officials shall be granted annual passes by the railroad companies.  Its chief recommendation to the unthinking is that it will grow quickly  and deliver the gold bricks while you  wait.   "    -, ,..:   "This party ��� has no- mission except  to retard the progress of the bona fide  socialist movement. It will do this  for but a very short time, and in  twelve months, or less, it will have  ceased to exist."

But all  ) the people ot Greenwood are not pes-  ' simlsts���not by a jugful.... It is 'pleas-  -,aut to witn'esB^the^beaiitiful optismisin  \oi the majority of her citizens. Men  ���'������who felt because they kn^w that the  \ wonderfulji.mineral Resources, !,of 1.. this  ^great district would some day build up  Sa large, healthy, lively town are still  "-.pointing to a glorious future for their  town.  It'is.ra'ther-interesting'-to reflect up-  ton the various stages of prosperity and  * adversity-through., .which^..Greenwood  i has passed during .th'e lastsix "years.  / DThe first: .obstacle to progress was a  'rival town.> Anaconda was here first  /and Anaconda was not. going to die  ,-'without^ a-  struggle.     .Through   the  ,-enterprise of townsite owners and the  -pioneer   citizens,   Greenwood   forged  ' afieadli'nd'soon'AnaTconda"was satisfied  ^^"'resFTInder ~tfier sKadovT:/ of 'Greenwood's prosperity>,-;/ Rivalry no longer  exists and Anaconda is today a pretty  suburb to.-the:'larger town.     Some day  no ,'dqubt; it* will come into the muni-'  cipality aincL' be part and parcel; of the'  ��� :city;df Greenwood;y a  ::  \  Then .transportation was going  to  ^ c'tf re'sdLec^hdiW^ the  town and its people. Money poured  into the country and was*spent in the  development of the big bodies of ore.  As this'development continued the cry  for transportation was; ii intensified.  Henzie .first endeavored , to secure such  - terms as-were necessary-|in {his opinion  to  successfully float a Boundary rail-  ' way scheme. He then got'-into'a fight  with a rival railway enterprise, and  afterwards sold : out to the C.  P.  R.  ��� ;Th at 'corporation 'successfully frustrated the-efforts of D. C. Corbin to  furnish Boundary Creek with a railway  and thus delayed the, railway .building for another year, but in doing so  the big.railway company pinned itself  down to build the next year and this  . promise had to be fulfilled. During  construction by the C. P. R. there  were prosperous times. Mine owners  increased their forces in order to place  their properties oh 'a shipping-basis,  new properties were opened up, the  big   railway    contractors   distributed  , -thousands of dollars each month, and  ���'everypody was basking-injthe sunshine  of prosperity.      The    dream   of   the  'original Greenwood optimist was being fulfilled. He erijoyed-it and reveled  > in it."' It looked as. if it were going to  t last to and the-future was promptly  ^mortgaged. But influences were at  '���work over'which the'Green wood opti-  "mist had  no control.   Mining invest-  ,, ments in B. Q. became unpopular in  the east and'in'the old country; on the  top" of "this came the South  African  , war which materially assisted in  diverting the attention of capital away  from this province. The railway was  completed and no revenue came from  that source.' The' people were compelled to live upon the earning power  of the district for outside money came  not. .:But:\they.- were not discouraged.  We have mines and smelters they said  and we will soon be able to produce  .���Vnbugh -wealth . to insure increased  _ prosperity.  were better. Railway men outside the  C. P. R, thought so too. There was  jilPiit}' of business in the Boundary  country for two railways. Last year  the Granby company contributed oiie  eightieth of the entire revenue of the  Canadian Pacific Railway, and its business was increasing rapidly. Jim Hill  wanted to get into the-Bbundary arid  started to come in He wanted to build  a railway to tap every mining- camp in  the district and he wanted to follow  the . route nature mapped out. He  didn't want any heavy grades or short  curves. He started to build along the  valley of "the Kettle River but he ran  up against a one-horse jerkwater road  known as the Hot Ait; line". The builders of the Hot Air line didn't want Jim  Hill:tp:come in until they "sloughed"  their road off on somebody else. They  weren't strong.themselves but envoked  the" majesty of "the law to interfere in  their behalf. Injunction followed injunction, -Quo Warranto was rung in  as a change and various other legal  expedients were adopted to delay Hill's  railway.' But Hill triumphed over the  courts and the Hot Air line and is now  irfa"position"tocome to Greenwood.  /  Greenwood is the natural commercial  centre for the promising mining terrir  tory''j.west. ;- The West Fork country  with its numerous showings of high  grade ore, offered every inducement  for the extension of trade, but the  West Fork eouritry wanted the primitive means of trancportation���a wagon  road. The necessary money was  wrested from a hostile legislative aiid  there was every hope that the West  Fork country would be opened up bitt  money ,was, unwisely .spent , and the  road is still uncompleted.      " ;  In the meantime - Greenwood was  slowly recovering from the effects1 of  too much prosperity and too little  -mone}' from -the-out- -side.���The.Eng-  lish investors still shied-atanything  labelled B. C. but the mines were doing  wonderfully well. They were supplying abundant ore .for the smelters,  they were employing many men and  they were beginning to pay. New  smelters were blown in, new furnaces  were, to be added when without a  moment's warning, the Fernie miners  decided to strike���and there was no  coke. ' The <smeiters had to close down  and the-pessimisLgotiachance-to work  off something like that given above.  Then'more' railways were wanted.  One railway was good but two or more  But .the optimist, good fellow that  he is, stays right with it. He says  that, the Fernie strike is going to be  settled in a few days, that there will  be an abundance of Coke, that the  Mother Lode smelter will have another  furnace as soon as it can be made by  the manufacturers and that the Sunset  smelter will have too new furnaces in  a short time, that the forces at the  mines and smelters will be increased  and that an increased payroll will  mean increased business. He also  says that Jim Hill does not stop because there happens to be a strike at  Fernie, that tlie railway i.s to be continued from Curlew and that within  'the year the Great Northern will have  its cars in Greenwood.  Then the government are going to  take another chance at the West Fork  road. They have money and this time  profitting by the lesions from previous  mistakes they are going to complete  the road.  While all these things are being  done' Greenwood is not going to be  idle- A splendid school building is  going to be erected, a large court house  will be built here this year and other  public undertakings of vast importance  will be carried out. One swallow  doesn't make a summer aud one strike  doesn't forever ruin a healthy town  and a big,mining district. Prosperity-  is pleasant but too much of it is bad  for a man. A little adversity is needed  to give zest to life. Don't take the  advice of the pessimist. He is no g-ood  anyway. He gives you plenty of  trouble and our destiny will work out  all right despite him.  Don't you borrow . ..,.  Care and sorrow,  Make more progress, so I find,  Sometimes settin'  Roun' alettin'  Things go 'bout as they've a mind.  ���0<><>0<KX>0<)-CK><3-0<K><>CK><>000<><><><>  mMmwwmmmmYmmmmmwiiri  Has   opened   his Ice  Cream Parlor at the  (P*  Cpt  CP<  CP*  (p*\  CP*  CP<i  ontreal  9  in the Clarendon Block.  \CP*  te  CP*  ICP<\  CP<]  CP*\  CP*\  CP<\  CP*\  Capital, all paid up, $12,000,000.

In The Boundary.  W- Yolen Williams Speaks of the  Outlook.  "There is no cause for down-harted-  neas in regard to the mining-outlook in  British Columbia. The problem of the  profitable mining of low grade ore  bodies is being gradually solved, and  the eventual success of our principal  industry is assured"���so said W. Yolen  "Williams in the course of a conversation with; a Times reporter. Mr.  "Williams is the mining superintendent  of the Granby Mining. Smelting &  Power Company, the big corporation  of the Boundary district. He is spending a few days on the coast in company with Orrin B. Smith, mining  engineer of the same corporation, and  has found time to take in the Mt.  Sicker camp during his  stay on  the  Island.  Speaking  of Mt.  Sicker,  Mr. Williams said he was very much impressed  with what he saw at the camp.    "Mining," he said, "is evidently  being carried  on  there  on a large scale and on  scientific  lines,  and judging from the  considerable amount of ore which I saw  on the Lenora dump the camp will be a  big   thing.      The   proximity   of   the  smelter at  Crofton  and  the facilities  or shipping provided  by Mr. Croft's  unique tram  line  afford  the most, advantageous  conditions  for  mining at  Sicker.   There seems  to be large ore  - ^reseryesj.hcre, and the quality of rock  is good.   I consider that Mr. Croft deserves great' praise  for his enterprise  and ability in developing the camp.  Asked about the condition of mining  in the Boundary country Mr. "Williams  said that,   speaking   generally,   good  progress was being made in the mines  up there.    "Our smelter is now treating 1,500 tons of ore per day," he said,  '"and with   the    additional    furnaces  which  will be put in at an early date,  we shall  be  able to treat 2,000  tons  daily.      This   ore   is   taken   in  about  equal  quantities from  the  Knob Hill  and  Old   Ironsides   properties.     The  company   is  now  employing  over 600  men on   the mines and smelter.    Just  at present we are having  a  little difficulty   in  regard  to the supply of coke  for the  smelter, owing to the accident  and the strike at Fernie, but we do not  anticipate  that  the  shortage will continue    for    any    considerable    time.  Several   other   mines -now   the   property of the company���ship occasionally   to  the smelter,  but in  most of  them development  work is the chief  object at present. Among the properties which are showing up well  about Phoenix is the Snowshoe, on  which a considerable amount of work  has been done.  "Of course, the problem in mining  in the Boundary district is the reduction to the lowest possible point of the  cost of treatment. The ore bodies met  with are very large, but the average  grade is low. I believe, however, that  most of the Boundary mines will be  worked at a profit, and there can be no  doubt that the district will be a great  producer."  Mr. Williams does not entertain the  pessimistic views in regard to the  future of the Rossland camp that are  somewhat prevalent just now. He believes that the principal mines will  turn out all right. He also says that  the trouble with the miners there is  about settled.  Speaking of the financial side of |  British Columbia mining, Mr. Williams emphasized the fact that in comparison with other mining countries  the amount of British capital invested  here is not considerable, and expressed  the opinion that as wider knowledge of  of the mineral resources of the province reach British investors there will  be plsnty of money available for sound  mining propositions.  Mr. Williams, with Mr. Smith, left  the city by last evening's boat for  Vancouver, where he will stay for a  day or two prior to his return to the  Boundary.���Victoria Times.  -���csSS-SSsa*****^  *^  r->  s  F  *mi  Is we believe second to none for style*  finish and durability, and cannot be  duplicated at the price.
