An important'meeting- of   the city  council was held on  Monday  evening-  With;Mayor- Naden  in  the chair and  Aid. ���   Caulfield    Kirkwood,    Smailes,  Bannerman, Swayne and Ross present.  A bylaw was  passed to raise by the  way, of, debentures the' sum. of $5,000  for school   building-   purposes.      Last  . session the legislature voted $8,000 for  a school building- in Greenwood.''This  'sunt is being- augmented by the city by  the $5,000 as a. site hasjo be purchased.  It speaks well.'for Greenwood that even.;'  ' before the by-law has been submitted  "to the ratepayers who will doubtless  offer  no opposition,   the    debentures  ��� have been sold at par.    The .purchaser  .���is William- McBridei   one '" of ��� Green-  . wood'scitizens who. shows his confid-  ;ence in the town by;the purchase of its  debentures at a hig-h figure.     The by-  ���' law will be submitted to the ratepayers  ���for their approval on Aug-ust 4th and  as soon as it receives: their assent; the  .. money.which.has.been.deposited in the  bank  for this purpose will be turned  over to the city.  The,,tramway  project   was   further  considered and favorable progress was  made. ;f:The* council; is hopefuLthat in  a short time,- .'the j scheme will; be in  such shape that it can be  made public.  Several matters of routine were con7  sidered.   It   was, decided   to   place  a  ���mail gate  at the - cemetery   so   that  visitors could go in -and ' but without  unlocking the large gates.   .Signs will  be placed on the city  bridges cautioning- against  fast, driving.     This  has  .  been made, necessary because drivers  have been in the habit of running- and  trotting their teams over city bridges.  The.council, have decided  to stop the  practice and intend   prosecuting   for  ^iasrdrivihg"'6vef:bVidgcs~in7tlie"fuUirer  The annual agitation for the reduction ' of the peddler license, came up'in  the shape of a by-law to reduce the  license from S250 for six months to $25.  '.The object  desired ;is  to   allow fruit  'peddlers to sell fruit but if the license  were   reduced  it   would   allow   every  other sort of peddler to hawkjhis wares  through Greenwood.   The council by  a  vote of six to four decided to main-  -;-; tain the high license.  'injunction against the transfer of the  stock and is now preparing for a receiver oh the ground that all the stock  of the Kettle Valley Lines, except that  issued to him, was issued and is held  byaliens, which is forbidden by the  constitution; and, that while it is a  corporation of the state,' it has moved  all its corporate records beyond the  jurisdiction- of the state and keeps  them at Grand -Forks, B.

Manager Morris now has a temporary injunction, returnable at Republic  on August 1,' at which time the application for a receiver will  be heard.  The case of Morris against the  Kettle Valley Lines is one of more  than usual interest in local circles.  The Kettle Valley lanes has been  in trouble from the date of its commencement, and the present suit is  liable to mean that the company  will  forfeit  its charter.  While, the suit only includes the  part of the road in the state of Washington, that includes all but about  three miles of: the line. The trouble  was'started by the failure of the officials of; the Kettle... Valley owners  to turn overto'Morris the'amount of  stock he claims is due hini'as promoter  .of the road.   .'

He  secured the money from F. J. Finucane who took a chattle mortgage.  Some time ago Mr. Finucaud took possession under this mortgage, Mr.  Williams leaving for Toronto where  he is at present.  Bachelors Won.  An  Ball  Are you using "Blue  Ribbon "Cey-  Tea.  The only serious fire in Greenwood  for over two years took place on  Thursday evening when the dry goods  estaplishment of Geo. F. Williams on  Copper street was completely gutted,  entailing what is practically a total  loss. The fire occurred about nine  o'clock in the evening. Good work on  the'part of the firemen and a good  water supply saved the adjoining  buildings. Guess' brick block adjoining was also, a factor in preventing  the fire from spreading.  The burnt building is situated in the  heart of Copper street between Greenwood and Dundee and on each side is a  long row of business houses. Curiously  loo it is near where the only previous  serious fires occurred.  One of the first to notice the blaze  was Mrs. Peterson who .is a convalescent patient at Dr. Spankie's in the  Guess block adjoining. The fire broke  out in the roof of the Williams building near the centre. Mrs. Petetson  called nurse Manahan who gave the  alarm and'soon there was a general  alarm. .^The firemen and a big crowd  of citizens were quickly on the scene,  and several streams from the neighboring hydrants were played on the  building. A frame structure, it burnt  fiercely and it was sometime before  the water became the yictor. The  building is damaged beyond repair  and the $8,000 stock of gooda badly  damaged.  On the south side of the Williams  building is the frame block occupied  by Smith & McRae, stationers. There  is no fire wall between the buildings  and it looked at one time as if this  building wasjaiso doomed. Willing  hands began to remove The goods from  the premises but this was discontinued  when it was found that the firemen  had the rive uuder control. Smith &  McRae's fine stock is rather badly  damaged with water and the hurried  removal.  Mrs. Peterson, the patient, was  safely removed from Dr. Spankie's  and is none the worse for her exciting  experience. The doctor's instruments  and furniture was also removed to a  place of safety.  The cause of the fire is unknown.  The building is a one story with a trap  door i:i the ceiling at the rear. Mr.  Law was in the Windsor at the time  when the alarm was fust given, He  broke into Williams' store and found  that the fire at that time was between  the ceiling and the roof. When it  broke out it vvas near the centre of the  building. The insurance on the  Williams stock is apout $4,000. Gaunce  and Wickwire's companies 52,500, the  Bealey company ��1,000 and R. Cunningham S500. Smith & McRae are  well protected bv insurance.  The excellent work of the fire department was much appreciatad by I  the citizens. It reflects the greatest  credit on them that a fire with a good  start in a frame building in the heart  of the densest portion of the town  should be confined to the one building.  The Clsra Mathes company were playing Under Two Flags that evening  and when the alarm sounded the  the theater was emptied. The company announced a free show after the  tire was out. The theatre was packed  and the company took advantage of  the opportunit}- to congratulate the  firemen on their splendid work and to  tender them an invitation tothe performance on Friday evening.  The hose team had plenty of practical experience before going to Nelson  for the races.   They left on  to-days  Exciting  Game  of   Base  Played on Friday.  A combination of unfortunate circumstances were responsible for the  defeat of a team of benedicts by Law's  lonesome bachelors on Friday. In the  first place several of Iran's poorest  men went to the Kelson celebration  and their places were filled by ball  players. Then Capt. Law and his  bachelor friends were so frightened of  a second defeat that they made it a.  condition incident to the game that the  benedicts should play no man who  played on a winning team before. In  order to get some excercise and also to  encourage the young fellows, this condition was agreed to. One of the  benedicts twisted his knee in the first  inning and when it was suggested that  J, L. Coles take his place, the howl of  dissent could be heard miles away.  Coles didn't play. The bachelors  played dark horses���men who secured  fame and name in former base ball  contests, notably H. F. Mytton, Dave  Reid and Big MacKenzie, who used to  by the darling of Bruce county enthusiasts. Even with this handicap,  the benedicts were only a few runs  behind their victorious opponents and  if the full nine innings instead of  seven had been played they doubtless  would have forged ahead as Bob Long-  ley the pitcher was rattled and Law  the first baseman ran out of wind.  Julius Ehrlich umpired the game for  the benedicts and Geo. F. Miller 3aw  that his brother bachelors got fair  treatment. Both gave entire satisfaction. The grand stand was well  patronized and the game was greatly  enjoyed.  It is understood that D. Bannerman  .and J. L- White have, issued a challenge on behalf of the benedicts and  if given a free hand in the choice of  men are certain of an easy victory.  Ill  The City Council Considering a New Scheme.  II  To Connect  Greenwood   With  Surrounding Camps.  the  For several years .the advisability  of constructing a tramway system  that would connect Phoenix and  the mining camps has been discussed. At one time a company secured  a charter and undertook to build the  road but for various reasons the project was not carried out. For some  weeks the city council has been quietly,  at work gathering information regarding the co��t and the practibility of  the scheme. The information secured  is of a most encouraging nature. The  intention is to carry out the work  as municipal undertaking. The details of the scheme are not sufficiently  matured to make public but lhc  council is hopeful that in a short time  they will be in a position to submit  the scheme  to  the ratepayers.  Ths importance of a tramway, system cannot be over estimated. Greenwood is easily the commercial centre of  the Boundary I andjall that is required  to bring it in closer touch with various mining camps is a tramway  system.  C P. R. Officials  F;, H.

The Greenwood Board  of Trade wired the officers of  the coal  company   and   the   secretary   of    the  Fernie Miners'  union   asking them if  they wished the services   of   the   as  sociated boards in an attempt to settle  the strike.    The coal  company replied  that manager Tonkins was at the coast  aud in his absence no definite answer  could be giveu and no reply has as yet  been received from the Fernie miners.  Under the circumstances it would be  folly for the associated boards to interfere in the strike.  66 _ _ - w 6-6  Established 1836.

The supreme court of British Columbia in its inscrutable wisdom has  seen fit to sentence William McAdams,  editor of the Sandon Paystreak to nine  .months imprisonment and if unable to  get good friends to put up $2,000 as an  earnest of his future food conduct, he  must languish in jail an additional  twelve months.    McAdams was not a  ��� partner of Tracy's, nor did he beat an  inoffensive old man into insensibility,  nor was he a horse thief, nor was he  charged   with  any   of   several   other  things  that   usually    warrant   severe  sentences.      Like    all     great     men,  McAdams  has  his  moments of weakness.     In   one  of   these   moments he  committed   to   cold   type   words   that  were not carefully  weighed.      These  words   were   directed   at the supreme  ��� court of the  province of British Col-  ���umbia���a very  august body and one  which  should not be referred to save  atter calm and mature deliberation.  Now. a man'that is sentenced to what  >    is practically  21 months imprisoment  must be charged with an offence.   The  persons  against whom an   offence.is  committed  are usually  the plaintiffs.  ' In this case the real plaintiffs  are the  judges of the supreme court.     What  trial McAdams   got   was   before   the  judges of the supreme court  and the  sentence   was  by   the   judges  of the  ' supreme court.  --^���^���Underi-tthe---oircumstanc_es^and.itiJhe  interests   of   other    great   newspaper  , men who.have their moments of weakness,'the supreme court   of  the  pro-  vince.qf British Columbia should  prepare a brand new law for the guidance  discipline, and also the protection of all  newspaper men in this province.  About  one hundred years ago. Germany passed a measure that was stringent enough  to meet present requirements   in   British   Columbia.      This  ancient edict if brought up to date and  made  applicable to B.  C.  would   set  forth  the abuses of the press; also its  licentiousness;    that     the ' judiciary  should never be made the sport of vain  curiosity or superficial  criticism, and  that nothing but "folly and falsehood"  could impute sinisler designs  to the  supreme court.     It would then proceed  to prohibit the   publication  of   every  newspaper   iu   the   province   without  having first secured a license from the  supreme   court;   it   would    make   the  sheriff of  each county  answerable to  the supreme court tor any newspaper  which newspaper men would be in-  carerated- Today a newspaper man  may be living at peace with the world,  he may be enjoying the confidence and  respect of his fellow men and he may  consider himself guiltless of any crime;  but too big a hunk of mince pie or an  overdose of indifferent Scotch may  move him to say things and without a  moments warning he may find him-  i self decorated with a "P. G."  With strikes at coal mines, with  smelters and mines closed, with a low  price for copper and no market for  silver or lead, there were ample uncertainties in the publication of newspapers in the mining towns of interior  Relief was often sought by taking ran  dom shots at railway corporations,  parliaments, governments and big  things of that sort. Poor Billy Mc  Adams enlarged his range by including the supreme court judges. It was  a foolish thing to do, but he should  have had some warning that it was  dangerous. It would be safer to have  a law like that suggested so that newspaper men might know what to expect.  Seriously speaking, McAdams' conduct was a scandalous abuse of newspaper privileges but the reputation  o! the supreme court of British Columbia is not so weak, that to preserve it,  it is necessary to mete out punishment  so severe, and in such a premptory  manner.  No one will attempt to defend McAdams' course, on the other hand few  can be found who will applaud the  sentence of the supreme court judges.  McAdams is a young man too free  with his pen. The learned judges arc  men of mature years who have at least  reached the age of discretion. McAdams' error cannot be offered as an  excuse for the extreme measures taken  by supreme court judges.

THE FERNIE STRIKE.  The Nelson News Fernie correspondent was rather unfair in his strictures  on the Boards of Trade belonging to  the Associated Boards of Eastern  British Columbia. He criticized them  for refusing- to go to Fernie with a  view to arbitrating the differences between the coal company and the striking miners.

All expressed their willingness to  send delegates to Ferni�� if the com-  pauy and the men wished them to do  no- No such assurance was received  and then came the announcement that  President Buchanan had called a meet-  '^W ^* fc?* <J* tyfl t-yT.tJ* Ur> &* lv* *���&* w7* If* &" fc9* J* V*  ^1 _    ~ .   _ _      fc  fc  f  r  r  ���I*  w��*w***^  y  r  r  r  r  x  r  r  I  r  4  T  T  t  X  OPEN DAY AND NIGHT. |-  MEALS  AT ALL HOURS  PRIVATE  ROOMS  FOR  LADIES.

With the mercury hovering around  the century mark, it iu rather a difficult matter to do justice to the annual  report of the minister of mines which  has just reached us. It is a formidable volume, its 300 pages being replete with facts and figures to demonstrate that- there is mineral in this  province and that there are producing  mines. Typographically is ihas a  soothing effect. Printed by Richard  Wolfenden, printer to the King's most  excellent majesty, is a sufficient; gttar-  antea of its excellence. The .photo  engravings are good but no better than  are being produced by the B. C. Photo  engraving company of Victoria. Why  the .provincial, -government should  spend thousands'''af dollars in Chicago  or .some,other foreign;, city for their  illustrations is difficult to understand.  They can get equally good work at  home. Politics is,politics.but business  is business and it is short sighted  policy to send good money to United  States simply ��� because "'a political opponent runs the only photo-engraving  establishment in.the/province.!  But  we. are getting away from the  minister of mines report. While Edwd.  Gawler Prior giver his name, William  Fleet iRobertson  does   the   work   and  tells the story of the  satisfactory  progress that hasbeen inideT; The figures  are encouraging but the readers of the  .', Times  will  not thank us to give them  v too: many! these, hot^da^s.} -Indeed the  report is open to the criticism that it is  too unweildy  and  we  would  suggest  that its salient features be crowded in-  -. to about SO pages so thai people could  ' see at a" glance that. British Coluinbia  ' is' a mining country "aud  despite the  croakers who dabbled ^andlost in wild  cat "speculations   that    healthy    and  rapid progresses being made. ,  week I had* sulphur ores with which  I could get the matte down to +5 per  cent copper, and I then got all tha  gold out in five days. Silver does  not behave in this way.  "The Mother Lode ore is exceptionally free from arsenic and antimony  and behaves quite differently to certain other British Columbia ores  which carry quite fan amount of  these metals and in', run ning which  I have found metalic copper and  speiss separate out as soon as the  matte catne up to 47 per cent causing much: trouble in filling up the  tap-hole and threatening in this way  to plug up the furnace. To obviate  this-1 have found.it necessary, elsewhere, to change the trapped spot  to the ordinary way of stopping up  the tap-hole with clay and when the  bottom was rising up inside the tap-  jacket I used to blow the furnace  for five minutes and the blast,  following through, melted the gathering metalics and speiss. With the  Mother Lode ore, however, I have  made as' high as 67 per cent copper  matte in the. blast furnace,., using  a trapped blast, ' without filling the  tap-hole with metalic copper..  "We have during the latter part.of 1901  been at work to double the capacity  of the smelter, and to this end erected  new . sets";. of lower ore bins, 12 in  number, with an increased storage  capacity of 5,000 tons, making a total  storage capacity for the lower ore  bins' of "10,000 tons. Another large  560 feet, long railroad trestle has  been built --'.between the two previous ones' 'in order to facilitate and'  make possible the handling of over  1,000 tons daily of material for the  smelter by the railroad. The foundations for the furnace building extension and the new second furnace  are in, and cast iron columns and  deck-plates for the -new second furn-  _ace have been; put up. The furnace  will be finished''" as soon as the  weather allows the putting up of  the brickwork for it. The new 7yi  Connersville Blower is' ready and in  place for the furnace. With this  second furnace completed, the plant  will have a daily capacity of over  800 tons of ore, and together with  coke and coal and matte the railroad will have to handle' nearly. 1,000  tons daily.  "We figure on getting eventually  three to four furnaces going, and  shall then add converter works for  making the matte into blister copper." -  Corporation oiiurcity ofGfeenfol;  By-Law No. 81.  Briefly, the report tells us that British  Columbia' mines produced in all  years $172,241,988. Of this amount  $20,086,780 was  produced  in  1901 and  ��� increase of nearly four -millions over  1900 and eight millions over 1899. By  mining'divisions the greatest increase  ,_ was.made, in the Boundary.     In 1899  ��� the Boundary produced $234,166, in  ' 1900"$1,358,383 and'in 1901 the aggre-  ���gate:was'$3,250,986.  - Mr. Robertson make tables, charts,  of every descriptions to rub it in that  these are growihg'jtimes in mining in  British Columbia. Statistics never  lie, neither does Mr. Robertson so that  the surest way of convincing those  who  think British   Columbia-  is   no*  .good- is by feeding them on tables  ranging from No; 1 to No. 10. (This  is not intended for a pun.)  But the report is not all figures.  There are interesting reports from  gold commissioners and mining re-  ���: corders in all partsi of the province  W. G. McMynn furnishes a wealth of  information to which he is largely indebted to E..: Jacobs. Mr. Robertson  gives a detailed description of his  trip through  the West Fork country  last year.  J Mr. MlcMynn's report is supplemented  by an interesting description of the B.  C. Copper company's smelting operations by Paul Johnson, M. E. After  describing the smelter Mr. Johnson  says in part:  "Before starting up the furnace, I  had my doubts whether I could make  higher grade matte than 30 to 35 per  cent copper, without resorting to roasting the ore, but I found by actual  ��� practice, what I had hoped, that the  irony variety, which is magnetic oxide  of   iron   (Fe3 04),   in   smelting and re- ; Treasurer of thesaid City of Greenwood forthe  ducing its iron to Fe303 for the slag,  gives off 1 atom of oxygen for every  molecule of FeSOVand" "this bxygen  acts as a powerful desulphurizer. so  that I have, in fact, burned off as much  as, 85, per cent to 90 per cent ofthe  : sulphur in the charge at times. I have  aimed at making a 45 to 50 per cent  copper matte, but sometimes it has  come out as high as over 60 per cent  copper, chough having had had .rather  much of the irony ore in the charge,  in   connection   with  tlte debt  incurred  durinp the currency of the  debentures hereby authorized to be issued.

Situation  at  Fernie   Remains  Un-  chansred.  There ia no improvement in the coke  situation. The strike at Fernie i.s  apparently as far from settlement as  ever. Local smelters are daily receiving postal cards announcing shipments of coke but the coke never comes.  The Sunset smelter has not received  any since the shut down although promised a car a day and the Mother Lode  "BmeltelT" has""a" supply "of "orily'eight  cars. -The Granby company is faring  better. They are receiving regular  shipments from Fernie and Michel and  are also receiving a small snpply from  Frank, the new coal town on the  Crow's Nest Pass.  Paul Johnson was out to Fernie last  week skirmishing for coke but the  regular supply does not come. The  fact is that until the company gets the  Fernie mines in shape they will be unable to supply the demand.  It is all right to buy the big, city-  made, far-off, publications.
