 '%'d  Vol. 7.  GREENWOOD, B. C. FRIDAY, MARCH 13,  1903.  No. 29  THE BOARD  OF TRADE  Resolution to be Submitted  at the Fernie Meeting.  I HINT 18 HED  To Develop and Operate the Public  Coal Measures.  A well attended meeting- of the  Greenwood Board of Trade was held  in the board rooms on Wednesday last  with the president Geo. R. Naden in  the ch.iir. Albert I. Goodell snperin-  tendnnt of the Sunset smelter and H.  P. Dickinson the local representative  foa the Giant Powder company, were  elected members.  Mr. Ehrlich on behalf of the committee on market day reported that  tney were in consultation with the city  solicitor in reference to Chinese peddling-. The committee were given  further time to report.  Messrs. Ross, E. J. Wilson and Elkins, the committee to whom was referred the matter of preparing resolutions to be submitted by the Greenwood deleg-ates at the annual meeting  of the Associated Boards of Trade  recommended that the following- resolution be offered :  Whereas the natural wealth of the  portion of the province represented by  the   Associoted - Board*���of   Trade- is1  chiefly Th its low g-fade~ores';  And Whekbas progress and development is dependent upon the treatment of these ores at the lowest possible cost ;  And Wherbas it has been demonstrated during the past few years that  low grade ores can be mined and  smelted in Southern British Columbia  cheaper than in any other district in  the world ;  And Whereas in order to secure  the best results mines and smelters  must be operated on a large scale ;  And Whereas the only available  source of fuel supply for these smelters  is the mines of the Crow's Nest Pass  Coal Company ;  ._,.AND.JWjiEREAS.c-n^.accoutvt^ of accident arid strikes, these mines were unable to supply the smelters with all the  coke and coal required, and consequently the smelters and mines were  forced to close, men were thrown out  of employment, almost complete stagnation of business in the districts  affected followed entailing serious loss  to all concerned ;  And Whereas there is no assurance that even without a recurrence of  accidents or strikes, the Crow's Nest  Pass Coal Company will be in a position to supply the requirements of the  smelters of South Eastern British Columbia, when it is, considered that arrangements for doubling the capacity  cf these smelters during the present  year have already been made ;  Therefore, be it Resolved, that a  committee consisting of   and the mover be and is hereby appointed to prepare a memorial setting  forth what action should be taken by  the Dominion or Provincial governments to insure for the smelters of  South Eastern British Columbia a full  and regular supply of fuel.  C. W. Wilson seconded by C. R.  Pittock moved the following amendment :  To strike out all words after "memorial" and substituting ths following :  "Urging upon the Dominion government that it is in the interests of the  mining and smelting industries of this  Province that the public coal lands in  the Crow's Nest Pass should not be  sold to private parties but .should bv  developed and operated by the government in such a manner as to injure for  the mines and smelters a full and  regular supply of fuel at a reasonable  price."  Mr. Wilson's amendment was accepted  as part of the original motion  and it was unanimously decided to  send it to the Associated Boards in  tliat form.  President Naden stated that he  would be unable to go to the meeting  of the   Associated   Boards.     Duncan  Ross was appointed in his stead, the  delegates being Messrs. Galloway,  Brown and Ross with Messrs Mytton  and Gaunce a.s alternates.  Messrs. Ehrlich, Caulfield and the  secretary were appointed a committee  to arrange for the expanses of the delegates to Fernie.  The resolutions from the other  Boards of Trade that will come up for  consideration at the Fernie meeting  were then considered. The delegates  were instructed to support the Rossland resolution dealing with the reserved Provincial coal lands in South  East Kootenay with the addition that  the Associated Boards urge upon the  government that the C. & W. reserve  should be lifted at once. The delegates were asked to see that the Rossland resolution opposing provincial  subsidies to trancontinental lines  should not apply to local development  roads.  Mr. Mytton provoked a warm discussion in suggesting the inducements  should be offered Americans %doing  business in this country to become  British subjects and have the right to  vote. At present they had all the  privileges of British subjects except  the franchise and were quite satisfied  tc- remain American citizens. Messrs.  Wood, Brown, Caulfield, E. J. Wilson,  C. W. Wilson and others discussed the  matter pro and con but no definite  action was taken.  The board then adjourned.  PROVINGIAL   MINING ASSOCIATION.

He  was taken to Greenwood on the regular  tra'n and Dr. Spankie examined him.  He found several ribs broken and injuries to the skull. The poor fellow  was quite dead when he  reached here.  Bell lived in Greenwood several  years ago. At that time he worked at  local livery stables. He has a brother-  in-law named Hutcheson who is a C.  P. R. conductor.

The Greenwood Electric company  are applying to the city for an extension of its franchise so that it- will be  exclusive and run 25 years from date  instead of ten years from 1900. The  application was made at the regular  meeting of the city council at which  Mayor Smailes presided with all the  aldermen present. E. J. Wilson who  is interested in the company and who  also represented Price'Bros.' interests,  briefly add-essed the council in favor  of granting the franchise. In this  connection he submitted the following  letter from Mr. Graves :  Spokane, Washington,  February 27th, 1903.  E. J. Wilson,  Greenwood, B. C.  Dear Sir : Referring to your inquiry ai-.out what our position would  be as to future investments and developments in and about Greenwood in  case a franchise was granted for electric lighting and power purposes, in  which-wc would be interested. lean  only say to you now as I did when we  first discussed this matter, that, where-  ever we put our money our influence  naturally goes with it for the upbuilding of a town or community in which  we place investments. I have but the  kindliest of feelings for the lown of  Greenwood, and have always thought  she occupied a natural position to draw  trade from the adjoining camps. We  have in a measure contributed largely  to the town from our mines in Greenwood camp, and naturally if we were  financially interested in Greenwood,  which wi have never before been, we  could be indirectly of more benefit  than ever before. I have told you  confidentially of some of my plans for  the future if we succeed in getting  what we wish there, and if "every th iii g  goes well with us, we should be of  great benefit to Greenwood.  Respectfully yours,  Jay P. Graves.  Aid. McKenzie gave notice of introducing a by-law dealing with the franchise and after a brief discussion the  council authorized the mayor to call a  public meeting to .secure an expression  of opinion from the ratepayers regarding the advisability of granting the  franchise.  The provincial secretary informed  the council that Aid. Kirkwood aud  Fr:d B. Holmes h:is been appointed  members of the boar J of license commissioners and Aid. Bunting and Duncan   Mcintosh   police    commissioner.  The mayor is ex-ollicio chairman of  both boards.  Aid. Kiikwood's dog tax by-law was  finally passed and goes into effect  March 31st.  Aid. Gulley's temporary loan by-law  was passed. It authorizes the council  to borrow up to 510.000 against the  ordinary revenue for the year.  1901, were paid by McLelluu and Clements of Grand Forks who were the  Summit Lumber and Timber company.  McLellau <!fe Clements claimi-rt they  sold out iu March and were therefore  not rcsponrible for any accounts after  the date of sale. The Summit Lumber  and Timber company died a sudden  death after their withdrawal and creditors had some difficulty in finding any  one to look to for their money. Geo.  Arthur Rendell of the Eholt Trading  company and P. Burns & Co., sued  McLellan and Clements for their unpaid accounts with the Lumber company. The cases were tried before  His Honor Judge Leamy who gave  judgment in favor of the plaintiffs.  McLelland and Clements appealed to  the full court and a new trial was  ordered. Judge Leamy was not  anxious to hear the case a second time  so Judge Forin came over. H. C.  Shaw appeared for the plaintiffs aud  W. H. P. Clement of Grand Forks for  the defendants. Several witnesses ap  peared for both sides. After the evidence was all in His Honor asked for  written arguments which will be sent  to him in Nelson.  Situation at Fernie.  Promising  Outlook  For ��� a  Busy Year.  SI  Being  Developed���Splendid Showing  on Elkhorn and Others.  Fbrnte, March 11.���After many con-  ferencee between the representatives  of tlie striking coal miners, the Crow's  Nest Coal company officials and the  conciliation committee appointed by  ihe Provincial Mining Association, all  the chief obstacles to a satisfactory  settlement have at length been removed.  Concessions have been made by both  the parties, arid the work of the committee has been considerably lightened  by the mutual forb :arance exercised  during the lengthy sessions held heiM  since Sun-lay last.  There are still some matters of de"1  tail to be settled, but with patience  and tact it is now reasonably certain  that all questions in dispute. wilbb.Cj  harmoniously and permanently settled  this week.  There were two meetings today, one  in the morning and the other thiseven  ing. Arrangements were made before  concluding this evening's meeting to  hold a further conference at 9 o'clock  tomorrow morning.  The Provincial Mining Association's  committee have been present at all of  the conferences held and their good  offices in bringing about a frieud'y  and lasting settlement have been appreciated bv both sides to tbe controversy. The terms of the settlement to  date are with held for the present and  will not be given out until the whole  matter is finally concluded, which may  possibly be tomorrow.  A later dispatch states that the possibilities are not so bright.  County Court Case.  Interesting Trial  Before  His Honor  Judge Forin.  His Honor Judge Forin of Nelson,  held a special setting of the county  court here on Wednesday last. The  case was a much tried one. Some  years ago the Summit Lumber and  Timber con pany with J. W. Stout as  manager did business in Summit city.  Goods were purchased from the Eholt  Trading company and P. Burns & Co.  Accounts  for January  and   February  Wm. Graham McMynn, immediate  past master of Greenwood Lodge No.  28, A. F. & A. M., has beeu presented  by the members of the lodge with a  past master's jewel and clasp. On 'he  reverse side ��� of the jewel, which has  the customary emblems beantiftttly  finished in gold, is the following inscription : "Presented by tiie brethren  of Greenwood lodge iu token of their  appreciation of your zealous work for  the order during 1902." The gold bars  of the clasp are eugraved with the  name of the recipient and letters G. R  B. C. The presentation was made in  the lodge room, \V. M. James S. Birnie  presiding and there being a numerous  attendance of members to do honor to  brother McMynn.  F. J. Finucane left ou Monday for  Spokane to take charge of the new  branch of the Bank of Montreal there.  A. W. Strickland came over from Rossland on Thursday to take charge ofthe  Greenwood branch. He was accompanied ty Mrs. Strickland and Mrs.  Hirsch.  Mr. Henry Raymond Bradish and  Miss Jessie Agnes De Spain of Phoenix  were married at the Windsor hotel on  Thursday afternoon. Rev. J. D. P.  Knox performed the ceremony. Mr.  A. E. Havelock Clark supported the  groom while the bride was attended  by her sister Maud.  N. Glover a prospector fp-uii the  headwaters of the North Fork of Kettle  Rive was in the city this wee*. He  is enthusiastic over ihe district in  which he is operating and believes it  will yet make a big mining camp.  Notwithstanding the Fernie strike  and complete shut down" of all the  Boundary smelters, mining near  Greenwood is not at a standstill.  While fourteen cent copper looks good  to the owners of low grade mines, without coke, copper might as well be one  dollar 'a pound. But there are mine  owners in Greenwood who are not  worried over scarcity of fuel or price  of copper. Since old man Fowler led  the way, niinin ��� high grade ores has  become popular and profitably.  The Providence���Mr.' Fowler's creation���never looked better. ������ Since  Duncan Mcintosh took -charge, -.his  usual good luck stayed right, with him.  The Providence vein is bigger and  richer than ever. And the Providence  means much for Greenwood.' " The  thirty men employed  there live in-the  ���a.:.    There is  no  more encouraging   .'  sight  than  to  see a  number of men.  with   their dinner buckets walking to  and from their work.  Next door to the Pro"idenc'e'-'is thie  ,F.l'.-:horn, -This ��� property..-has vbe'en:.,  bonded and rebonded. Many mining  men tempted by- high values tried to  get a well defined vein on the property  but met with indifferent ' success.  James Sutherland and Phil McDonald  took hold of the property a -short time  ago and kept right at work until .today  there is a 100 foot shaft in as rich ore  as is found in the Providence. They  are getting ready to ship and from  present indications they are going to  make small fortunes because of their  pluck aiid perseverance.  C. Scott Galloway and Jack Galloway  are running a tunnel on the Strathmore. Some years ago a shipment'of  high grade ore was-sent from this  property to the Everett smelter. There  is surely plenty of similar ore and the  present "development -work-is likely-to^-  uncover it.  D. McVicar and his associates'are  pegging away on what they call the  E. P. U. mines after the E. Pluribus  Union one of the properties in the  group. As has already been announced big returns were secured from the  first shipments from the E. P. U. and  plenty of equally high grade ore.is being ;aken out for further shipments,.  D. Manchester of the Queen's hotel  has a high grade property of his own.  It is up the gulch immediately'' above  the Gold Finch. It didn't look very  promising when he started in but to  day there i.s 12 inches of high grade ore  in the shaft.  Nothing is being done on the Gold  Finch at present. The eastern pedple  who have it under bond have not yet  tlecided to go ahead They have until  tlie first of June to make up their  minds. If they decide to let the property go, there are others anxious to  secure it.  These are some of high grade mines  immediately surrounding Greenwood.  Between them are clainis of equal premise. At the rate these are being  leased or bonded, it is safe to say that  within a year, the hill overlooking the  town will be teeming with-busy men-of  the class that have always done most  in making a town prosperous.  | On Sunday evening a public meet  ! ing under.the auspices of the Gree'u-  ! wood branch of the Lord's Day Alli-  j.ince, will be held in the Methodist  j church at the close of the regular  I services in the various churches. The  ! united congregations will be addressed  ! by Rev. Mr. Thompson of Midway.  i There will also be special singing.  :The i.hair will  be  taken   by Mr. Cle  ment of Grand Forks.

In the Dominion of Canada are some  of the strongest banking institutions  in the world. The leading banks are  also continually growing, notably the  Canadian Bank of Commerce. At its  head are some of the most successful  financial men in Canada and they have  lost no opportunity to extend its operations. A few years ago this bank  acquired the assets and business of the  Bank of British Columbia in the far  west. Recently in the extreme east  another strong bank has become amalgamated with the Bank of Commerce.  The Hulifax Bunk company was established it; l'-*-7.'! :n:(i nw-- ���������<-n <i popular  bank wi-AA '.:-���; I-.-.-,:'.-.:.<��� tirms in Nova  Scotia, lis r.-.uoua&e by the Bank of  Commerce will give the latter offices at  fifteen different important commercial  centres in Nova Scotia.  This is the age of amalgamation and  consolidation and it is gratifying to  see that a financial institution which  is purely Canadian is at *he very front  in the race for business.  ELECTRIC LIGHT FRANCHISE.  The first thing to be considered in  connection with the application for  the extension of the electric light  franchise is whether it is in the interests of the oity to grant an exclusive  25 year franchiwe^on the^���chance of  getting something good for the city.  From Mr. Graves'letter published else-  whore it may be seen that he makes no  specific promise ; on the other hand he  ia a man who does things and it looks  as if he was ready to quit shying at  the opportunities for investment in  the natural centre of the Boundary  Creek district. It may be an interesting occupation to try and make water  run up hill, but it is not a profitable  one; neither is it profitable to haul low  grade ores any greater distances than  is necessary to secure proper facilities  for its economical treatment.  It can be taken for granted then  that Mr. GraveH i.s anxious to become  more intimately connected with the  town of Greenwood and its people. Is  the price too much to pay for the connection ? A public meeting will be  called to discuss the merits of the proposed franchise and then the rate payers will be able to judge for themselves.  A cursory examination of the by-law  submitted at the last meeting of the  council shows that there are several  omissions in the shape of clauses to-pro  tect the city's interests. Doubtless in  the hurry of preparing the bylaw these  clauses were over looked and company  will have no objection to the insertion  of such amendments as are usually  found in franchises of this character.  Wljen the uublic meeting is called  we hope there will be a large attendance of rate payers and that there will  In 18% B. C. legislature granted subsidy of 20,000 acres of land to Columbia & Western railway for construction of a railway from Trail to Penticton.  Under terms of grant railway was  divided into six sections.  Land grant was to be turned to the  company upon the completion of each  section with two exceptions.  Section four ended at Midway and  land graut earned by the construction  of that section was not to be conveyed  to the company until section five, terminating half way between Midway  and Penticton was completed and grant  for section five was not to be conveyed  until section six reaching Pentiction  was completed.  The C. P. R. acquired C. & W. charter and completed road to Midway.  The C. P. R. never completed road  to Penticton.  The C. P. R. is consequently not entitled to land grant for section four in  accordance with the terms of subsidv  act.  Notwithstanding- this the land from  Columbia river to Keremeos has been  reserved] and< in addition a reserve  has been placed on lands in South  East Kootenay to make up any deficit  in  acreage along the line of the C. &  W. railway.  Several attempts have been made by  the provincial government to grant  the C. P. R. lands which the company  never earned but these attempts were  fustrated by Smith Curtis, M. P. P.  and other members of the legislature.  It now appears that the crown grant  for South East Kootenay lands was  prepared by Hon. W. C. Wells chief  commissioner of Lands and Works  but the storm against giving the C.  P." Rr'valuable lands they" were"n6f  entitled to was so great that the  chief commissioner was afraid to turn  over the grant.  The officials of the C. P. R. became  possessed of the information that the  crown grant was prepared and now  claim ownership of the South East  Kaotenay lands.  The C. P. R, has entered suit in the-  supreme court claiming title to 240,000  acres of land in the Elk river valley.  The land is rich in pretroleum,  minerals, coal and timber.  The government has allowed pre-  emptors to take up laud in this belt, it  has issued coal licenses and permits  and leases for timber limits.  The town of Morrissey many ranches, homesteads, saw mills, etc., are  in the tract.  The C P. R. is endeavoring to drive  the small owner* out and take possession of all this rich tract themselves.  The matter is now in court; it is  therefore subjudice; no comment is  made.  WHEN OUGHT  WE TO  GO TO A DENTIST?  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, decaj^ed, or  othervise out of working order;  and if this be the case, the mouth  requires immediate attention.

Great interest has been shown in the  announcement from Halifax that a  provisional n^rrement has been made  under which the Halifax Banking  Company is to be amalgamated with  The Canadian Bank of Commerce.  The latter Bank has at present a paid  up capital of ��8,000,000 with a rest of  82,500,000, but a week or two airo a  special general meeting- of the shareholders was called for 1+th April next  to pass a bylaw increasing the capital  stock to 510,000,000. Its Head Ollice is  it Toronto, and it has now S4 branches  throughout Canada and the United  States, stretching from Sydney, Cape  Breton, in the extreme East, to Victoria in the West, and from Dawson in  the North to San Francisco iu the  South. It is represented at all the  principal, business centres in Canada  west of Montreal, and has its own  offices in New York, Portland (Oregon)  Seattle, and London. En; land.  Until the recent .establishment of a  branch at Sydney, The Canadian Bank  of Commerce had no office in the Maritime Provinces. Its stock, however,  lias always been a favorite investment  with Nova Scotians, no less than $800,-  000 of its capital being held in their  Province. The purchase of the Halifax Banking Company will give it  offices at fifteen additional points in  Nova Scotia, including Halifax, Truro  and Windsor, -in fact, all the more  important places. Two branches will  also be obtained in New Brunswick,���  at St. John and Sackwille.  The present directors of the Halifax  Banking Company will continue to  give their services in the capacity of a  local advisory Board al Halifax, the  cashier will be.'omp local manager  there, and tin- entire staff wM le taken  into the service of the Canadian Bank  of Commerce. There is consequently  no doubt but that the good-will of the  institution is being taken over along  with its tangible assets.  Originally established in 1825 as a  priva'e p-Ti nersriip. urrl r tl"% s ���������  name as. ��� I pr >ei-t, i lit H .if..si. i  iug Company became incorporated in  1872 It has retained the friendship  aud support of many of the old Halifax firms whose predecessors did business with it in its earlier years, and ii  spite of the disadvantages under which  in these days a comparatively small  local bank must always labour, it has  built up a sound and remunerative  business. It has a paid-up capital of  ��600,000 with a rest of $525,00o. Its deposits are about 54,000,000. its total  assets about S6,0C0.OOO, and with the  added strength and psestige which its  incorporation into the Canadian Bank  of Coinmer-je will necessarily give, a  large increase in the present business-  may confidently be expected.  The terms under which the amalgamation will take place are said to be as  follows :       ���  After the necessary approval of the  shareholders- of- the-Hnli fax-Ban Icing  Company has been obtained and all  requisite legal formalities have been  completed' the Canadian Bank of Commerce will assume the liabilities of  The Halifax Banking Company, and  will give in exchange for the surplus  of its assets over its liabilities stock  of the Canadian Bank of Commerce of  the par value of 3700,000.  Doubtless some of the new slm-1-;  which tile Canadian Bank of Commerce  is taking authority to issue will 1><-  iwed to carry out the terms of the  agreement.  Both banks are to be congratulated  upon the arrangement which lias been  made, which must materially strengthen the position of the Canadian  Bank of Commerce and add to the  exceptional facilities which it alreadj  possesses for conducting a successful  banking business. When the amalgamation has taken place, it will have a  paid-up capital and rest combined of  nearly $12,000,000, and total assets of  some !?80,000.000, with 101 branches  distributed throughout the length and  breadth of Canada.  .ro ,-ei.ts buys a brush to put that  wali li-,::-h un.
