 4  "^WZ&LW&M  Vol. 7.  GREENWOOD, B. C. FRIDAY, MAY 22, 1903.  No. 39  THE COURT  OF ASSIZE  Mr. Justice Irving Presides  Over the Spring Sitting  i  GREAT  NORTHERN  James J. Hill Pays a Visit  to the West  Charge Against Charles A. Webster  Was Dismissed  The good people ~bf Greenwood and  the Boundary district have a happy  way of settling- their differences outside the sottrt room, consequently there  was but little for his lordship, Mr.  Justice Irving-, to do when he appeared  at the Masonic hall on Wednesday  morning last to preside over the sitting  of the supreme court as a court of  assize, nisi prius, oyer and terminer  and general gaol delivery. The matters coming before his lordship for  consideration -were adjudicated upon  with quickness and despatch and by  11:30 the learned judge bid counsel  good'tnorning and got ready for a trip  to Clinton where he presides over the  sitting of the court.  Neither grand jury nor petit j.iry  were required. The only criminal case  was that of the crown vs. Charles A.  Webster charged with' arson, the  alleged offence ' being the burning of  the cabin in which lived the late  "Jolly Jack." The old'timers resented  the. destruction of the property and  initiated- - proceedings^" against *., Mr,-  Webster. Although his lordship did  not let the case go further than the  first prosecuting witness, it is understood that Mr. Webster's defence would  be that he was in possession of the  ground and property under a pre-  emptor's title and that he had a legal  right to destroy the cabin. A. S.  Black appeared for the prosecution and  A M. Whiteside for the defence. The  only witness heard was Mrs. Thornton,  wlio told about Webster burning the  building, aud also that she and her  late husband had been in possession of  same for nine years.  His lordsi'ip stated that this was not  a criminal case at all. If Mrs. ThorntonHas ahynrights~in~the_j5i'o  should begin an action for damages  and apply for an injunction to restrain  any further burning. Before such an  injunction could be granted she would  have to show some title to the property. He asked that tne case be  withdrawn, and at his request Mr.  Black withdrew the charge.  His lordship advised Mr. Webster to  refrain from any further high-handed  proceedings as he hud other ways open  to get rid of objectionable tenants.  Then A.- M. Whiteside appeared with  numerous plans and maps and applied  on behalf of the Dominion Copper  company tc change, correct and extend  certain plans of a certain : ' : ision  of the town of Phoenix. Under  ordinary circumstances it would be  difficult to lay out streets and lots in a  country where nature's forces succeeded in producing every'.hincr else  except level land, but these difficulties  were aggravated by a surveyor who  was out in his astronomical bearings  and mathematical calculations. Mr.  Whiteside got along fairly well in  making the necessary corrections.  The registrar, however, put in an appearance through Johnston Prescott  Myer-Gray, and asked that too much  be not added to the original plan, and  R. H. Karotofsky, through J. R.  Brown, wanted his interests in a lot,  wlfe.ch he agreed to purchase, protected.  Tire learned judge allowed some,  changes, refused others, and by and  by the Dominion Copper company may  sell lots according to a certain reformed  map or plan.  Fred M. Munn et. al., and J. A. Tuzo  got into a dispute about certain  mineral claims up the West Fork.  Munn and his associates told their  troubles to Hallett & Shaw, and Tuzo  his to McLeod & Brown. These firms  sparred in the preliminaries with the  result that everything was practically  settled excepting the question of costs.  In chambers each tried to saddle the  costs an the other. His lordship  awarded the major portion of the costs  to Munn, the registrar to pass upon the  various items in the bills presented.  From  Curlew,   Washinjrton, Northward and Westward  When is the Great Northern going  to build into the Boundary ? James J.  Hill recently made a visit to the west.  He saw Seattle, Spokane, the coal  fields of the Crow's Nest, Republic and  Grand Forks. He sent for Siems and  Shields, the Great Northern contractors, and told them to do something.  What that something is will be known  in a few days.  Mr. Hill was in unusually good  humor on this western trip. He had  recently been beaten in the United  States courts, and his beautiful merger  scheme was knocked into a cocked hat.  No wonder that he was in good humor.  Hill's has been a strenuous life and he  enjoys hard knocks. He was even  affable to the ubiquitous newspaper  men and told them something about  his plans. There was much he did not  tell, but he stated definitely that the  spur to the Granby smelter would be  built at once and that the road would  be continued to Okanagan and the  Similkameen.. This .means that the  road will be continued from "Curlew to  Midway and Greenwood and from Midway, westward to Myer Creek, and  further west following the survey made  last year.  Mr. Hill had nothing to say about  the branch from Grand Forks to  Phoenix. That is a somewhat sore  point with Mr. Hill. It is stated on  good authority that this branch was  the cause of the rupture between the  Great Northern president and his  trusted chief engineer, John F.  Stephens. Influences were at work to  induce the Great Northern to build this  branch, influences that were apparently  stronger than the railway knowledge  of John  F.   Stephens.    Mr.  Stephens  never liked the project and was not  slow in saying so. He stated that the  natural obstructions to overcome were  too numerous and too heavy and that  the cost of building the road would be  more than the 'business in sight warranted. Mr. Stephens thought connection should be made with Phoenix  by the way of the Boundary creek  valley and said so. The result was a  quarrel and Mr. Stephens left the road,  much to Mr. Hill's regret. He would  not give in to Mr. Stephens then, but  he is not building the Grand Forks  Phoenix branch just yet.  Mr. Hill also announced that the  ,S. F. & N. road would be greatly improved. He expects to haul coke over  his lines to the Boundary smelters and  in order to do this as economically as  possible the S. F. & N. must be placed  in the same high state of efficiency  that characterizes all other Great  Northern lines.  WILL MAKE  ITS OWN COKE  International Coal and Coke  Company Organized.  !  Will  Mine  Coal  and   Manufacture  Coke Near Blairmore-  The Granby company has decided  that so far as they are concerned, the  fuel question is going to be settled. Its  management is getting somewhat  tired of importuning the Crow's Nest  Pass Coal company for more, coke at  $6.75. The company has decided to  go into the coke making- business. A  A subsidiary company ' has been  organized to develop coal measures in  the vicinity of Blairmore." The company is called the International Coal  and Coke company. It has been incorporated in Spokane with a capitalization of $3,000,000.  It is said that the coal area is seven  miles in length and there are nine  veins on the property, four of which  have been prospected. The aggregate  width of these four seams is something over 60 feet. A. C. Flumerfelt,  assistantant to President Miner, of  the Granby company, is president of  the new company, and H. N. Galer,  assistant general manager ,of . the  Granby company, is. : treas-ifreri*; The  stock has ail been subscribed for by  Granby stockholders, so that while it  is separate and independent from the  Granby company, it will be closely  allied with it. The construction of  100 coke ovens will be commenced at  once, and the output of tho mines will  be sold to independent smelters and  the railways in addition to the requirements of the Granby oompany. H. N.  Galer, assistant general manager of  the Granby company, who was in  Greenwood on Saturday last confirmed  the report and said the company already had a force of men developin g  the property.  ^"MrsTJackmaridiea Monday afternoon  at her father's ranch, Anarchist  mountain. She is the fourth to succumb to smallpox during the last four  or five weeks near Chesaw She was  quite a young woman and was married  here last fall. Her father, Mr. Wisted,  is a well known rancher living a few  miles west of Rock Creek, on the  British Columbia side of the line. So  far as known this was the only case of  smallpox brought across the line from  Chesaw, the quarantine having been  maintained as strictly as possible.  Dr. A. G. Hopkins, who was recently  appointed veterinary inspector for  British Columbia by the dominion  government, was in the city this week.  Dr. Hopkins makes his headquarters at  Vancouver.  HE GOES  TO ALASKA  Paul Johnson  Will  Build  Smelter  The Smelter Man and Family Left  Greenwood on Wednesday  Paul Johnson with wife and family  left Greenwood on Wednesday. Mrs.  Johnson and the children will reside  in one of the coast cities for some  time until the smelter is established  on Prince of Wales Island. Mr. Johnson came in from Chicago on Saturday night. While there he met B. D.  Brown, a New York capitalist who,  under the name of the Brown Alaska  company, will develop a big mining  and smelting- enterprise at Prinze of  Wales Island, Alaska.  As a result of the conference held at  Chicago Mr. Johnson will next month  proceed to the island there to erect a  smelter, which it is intended to have  ready for operation by the beginning  of next year. It will be on somewhat  similar lines to the one Mr. Johnson  built at Greenwood for the B. C. Copper company, commencing- with a  single furnace with a daily treatment  capacity of between 400 and SOO tons  and the works so planned as to admit  of: other- furnaces being added as required until a maximum capacity of  between 1,500 and 2,000 tons shall have  been reached. Mr. Johnson will  likely plan the smelter to be erected at  Sandpoint, Idaho.  On Monday night,' Mr. and Mrs.  Johnson were the guests of a few of  their intimate friends at a dinner at  the Hotel Armstrong.  Athletic Round-Up  A meeting of the Greenwood Athletic  Association was held Monday night.  The chief business was the report of  committees appointed at last meeting.  The report of committee to draft a  cqnstibatipn_aradjbylaws. was^ adopted,  with a few changes. The committee  on a weekly half holiday asked for  more time to report. The committee  on membership reported progress satisfactory. The committee to see about  leasing and improving the athletie  grounds reported that owing to one of  the owners of the grounds being out of  town, the C. P. R. being hard to approach, and the general mixup of the  land they were unable to make much  headway. The monthly fee of the  association was fixed at four bits. The  club colors are yellow, green aad  cardinal.  Mrs. J. B. McAllister and family  have arrived from the east to take up  their residence here. Mr. McAllister  went over to Grand Forks to meet them.  Boundary Ore Shipments*  1900 1901                               1902.

P. U. Belt.  I  Has the   Rich   Stuff���Dandy  Is   a  Dandy r  The evolution of Greenwood from a  low-grade to a hig-h-grade mining-  camp has beeu remarkably rapid. It  is still less than a year since the work  of systematically developing- the Providence began. The showing on  that property encouraged others.  Today there are half a dozen high-  grade properties shipping ore. But  this ia not all. A few months ago  telluride ore was found on the Lancashire fraction. It was telluride that  gave values of $3000 to Ihe ton. The  ledge was well filled with telluride and  the operators of the E. P. U. mines  were made correspondingly happy.  Now, telluride is a very good thing- to  have. It made Cripple Creek famous.  It certainly would not be right that  McVicar et. al. should have all the  good things. Nature generally distributes with an impartial hand.  During the last week telluride was  found in the Gold Finch, owned by C.  W. H. Sansom, the Dynamo, owned by  Port man n Bros, and associates, and  indications were found on the Barbara.  It is not surprising that the character  of ore in all these claims should be  similar because they are all on the hill  on the south side of Twin creek. The  recent strike on the Dynamo places it  among the prospective shippers of the  high-grade camp. The persistent  work of the five men who have the  Barbara under bond is likely to be  crowned with success, as during the  week some promising showings were  uncovered.  Some three weeks ago W. E. Hodges  and others bonded the Dandy mineral  claim from Lafayette Spencer. The  Dandy is on the hill over towards the  Anaconda road. Mr. Wheeling, an  experienced high-grademiner,wentto"  work on the property. Two quar'z  leads were uncovered and assays  secured of over $30 to the ton.  Alex Robinson and associates are  working the Fremonte under a lease  and bond. The Fremonte lies between  the Strathmore and the Providence.  But little work has been done on the  property, but it is certainly in good  company. It is owned by C. Scott  Galloway.  Mark F. Madden, of Madden Bros.,  Chicago, will arrive in Greenwood next  week. The final payment on account  of the Providence bond will be made  on June 1st and Mr. Madden will be  present on that occasion. The payment, $12,500, will be made out of the  proceeds of Providence ore. Outside  the first payment the Providence has  met all payments on account of the  bond���a record established by few high  grade proporties. It is expected that  in July a dividend will be paid. The  Providence appears" to improve with  development. It never looked better  than it does today, and from the north  drift, ore of exceptionally high values  is being extracted.  The E. P. U. shipped a carload of  ore to the Trail smelter this week.  The car contains 21 tons, and with the  telluride in the ore it is expected to go  well above the $100 mark.

STOCK    JOBBING     COMPANIES AND , OTHERS     i  With, some   of   the    so-called  .mining journals of  the east  the  merits   of   a   particular mining-  property is often determined by  the amount of  advertising space  paid for by the operators of the  . property   or   by   the   extent   to  which the operating leg can be  pulled.    Since this, rather questionable principle, is often applied  it is not surprising to find the  appearance   of    highly    colored  articles extolling the  virtues  of  some   mine   or,   some    company  coincident with the appearance of  a big advertisement of the said  company in the same paper.    If  ���these   hungry   mining   journals  would rest content in the giving  .of a quid pro quo to those whose  , profitable patronage they enjoy,  the general  public  could  easily  discern the motive   and  govern  themselves accordingly, but .it-is  time: to protest when attacks are  made on legitimate mining enterprises evidently for no reason than  some legs are not so easily pulled  as others.  There is a mining paper published in,; Bosto    known- as -the  Boston Mining  Bureau.     What  information it  does  not  extract  from other papers is sometimes inaccurate and nearly always prejudiced.     A few weeks   ago   it  insinuated that the B. C. Copper  company and  the Montreal  and  Boston   Copper    company   were  nothing but stock jobbing propo-j  sitions.    The    Boundary    Creek  Times does not profess  to  have  as intimate a knowledge of what  a stock jobbing proposition is as  the    Boston    Mining    Bureau.  Possibly     if    our      advertising  columns were used by such companies as the Ollala  and  one  or  two   others   who   appear   to   be  , heartily welcomed by the Boston  ���Mining Bureau, we would be in a  much better position to accurately  determine the status of any company eligible to be placed in the  stock jobbing class.  We think that companies owning valuable mines and fully  equipped smelters are scarcely  eligible. The B. C. Copper company has been doing business here  for several years. Its payroll is  about $20,000 a month. It has  paid its bills and has continued  working its mine and running its  smelter. Up to date the company  has shipped from the Mother  Lode mine nearly 300,000 tons of  ore. This has been treated at its  own smelter, and in addition  several thousand tons of custom  ore. So far as the people of this  district know there is no company  and no stock. The money has  been always forthcoming to meet  its obligations and from those  who are acquainted with the  New York "and Boston markets  no special efforts were made to  dispose of stock in those, centres.  If the Montreal and Boston  Copper company is a stock jobbing proposition its management  is proving its clainis in a most  extraordinary way. If increasing  the capacity of its smelter, if the  further development of its mines,  if earning increased profits from  the largely increased treatment  of custom ores���if all these coil-  vict a company of being a stock  jobbing proposition, then we do  not know the meaning of the  term. The Montreal and Boston  Copper company by trebling the  capacity of its smelting plant and  by having more ore offering that  can be treated by them, is in  shape to make such profits during  the year as will certainly insure  the payment of dividends. ;  The B. C. Copper company today is making large profits from  the treatment of its ores. If  these compah'ies can secure sufficient fuel for its furnaces (and  it certainly was through no fault  of theirs that they were unable  to secure fuel in the past) they  will be among the most solid and  most profitable mining , and  smelting companies of this  continent.  The trouble with these companies is that they are not stock  jobbing propositions; if they  were, the Boston Mining Bureau  would have been the first to extol  their virtues���for a~considerati6n.~  WHEN OUGHT  WE) TO!��3  GO TO A DENTIST?;3  Many think it unnecessary j  to devote particular attent- j  tion 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, decayed, or  othervise out of working order;  and if this be the case, the mouth  requires immediate attention.  ^iiiiiiiiiiiaiaiiiiiiiuiiiiiiiuaumiiaaiaiiaaiiiuiiiaiiiiii^  LINES,  SPOONS,  LEADERS.

THE    BOUJN )AY  CREEK   TIMES  Page 3  Leeds Mercury Tells About  High Grade Mines  Mr.  Lumsden Does Good Work  the Mother Land  in  The fame of Greenwood's high  grade mines has extended to the  mother land. The Leeds and  Yorkshire Mercury, the most influential paper in England, outside of the big metropolitan  dailies, sa}rs in a recent issue :  Great progress has been made  in the Boundary district of British  Columbia during the six months  which have elapsed since its  monster low-grade copper mines  were first - introduced to our  readers. But interest has for the  moment been transferred from the  low-grade   copper mountains  at  high-grade  429 tons, and the net proceeds  from these shipments was upwards of $44,000. If the Providence were au isolated property���  a mere freak of nature���there  would not be so much cause for  enthusiasm; but the Providence is  only the chief among a dozen  high-grade mines that encircle  Greenwood.  Immediately adjoining the  Providence is the Elkhorn, which  is beginning- to run its neighbor  a heat. Development began  there at a later date; and, taking  this fact into consideration, the  Elkhorn today is just as promising  as the Providence. Tavo Greenwood men bonded the Elkhorn  two months ago. They sank a  shaft S6 feet, and drifted on the  ore 75 feet. The first carload  of 21 tons shipped to the Trail  smelter was expected to net $5000.  The vein is about 16 inches wide,  aud is declared to become richer  and stronger the deeper it' goes.

The city of Greenwood is  said to be booming. No wonder,  with such mines opening out all  round.  Phoenix to certain  properties in the immediate  vicinity of Greenwood. The latter town is a point on the Columbia-Western branch of the  Canadian Pacific Railway, and is  in the ver}7- heart of the mining  region of the Boundary. For  years back miners have found  rich pockets of gold ore on the  hillsides around Greenwood, but  it is only recently that effective  measures have been taken to test  the value of the small high-grade  veins that were neglected so long-  as people would look at nothing1  but big- bodies of copper ore.  Now that serious exploration  has beeu undertaken, great ex-  citemeut has been produced by the  discovery that these high-grade  veins carry phenomenal gold  values. The low-grade ore of  the Granby company at Phoenix  does not yield more than from  $1.50 to $2 iu gold and silver to  the ton, but the Greenwood veins  have yielded samples which have  astonished all the mining men of  -the-Avest.��� Tlie-Boundary ^Creelc  Times describes one sample from  the Providence mine (immediately  adjoining Greenwood), Avhich  gave the folloAving assay: Gold,  2046.2 ounces; value, $40,')25;  silver,. 1920.4 ounces; value,  $960.20; total value, $41,8S4.20.  Unfortunately, no mention is  made of the size of this specimen,  but it is stated that this is only  one of several similarly rich  samples which have been assayed.  Our GreeuAvood contemporary  makes the admission, : ' ..�� be  expected in a country Avhere  every man and boy is a mining-  expert, that "all the Providence  ore does not run that high, but  the ore is rich enough and iu  sufficient quantity to make the  mine one of the most profitable  in the Avorld today."  The statement, says the editor,  is not based on assay returns but  on the actual proceeds of the ore  sent to the smeller. For some  time back the returns received  from the Trail smelter for shipments sent there by the Providence netted the company over  $150 to the ton, and as they continue the results are still more  satisfactory. In the first Aveek of  April returns were received from  a shipment of 22 tons 270 pounds  sent to the Trail smelter in  March. The net proceeds, after  freight aud treatment were  deducted, amounted to $3410.87.

Golden Greenwood Graphically Described  Pledged Permanence   of Greenwood  Rests on These  Greenwood's hig-h grade mines are  attracting- attention in various parts of  the world. Elsewhere excracts are  g-iven from an old conn try paper, arid  the article below was published in the  Seattle Press-Times of Friday last.  The Seattle Times' correspondent  enthusiastically describes goldbh  Greenwood as follows :  Copper! Silver! Gold! Upon such  a trinity of natural resources the  pledged permanence of Greenwood  rests.  In the hills about the city are the  greatest copper deposits of the continent. Here copper areas are  measured by aores, copper deposits by  hundreds and not by units of feet.  The record for cheap mining ami  smelting is, moreover, held today by  the Boundary. Prodigal in quantity  nature has likewise been prodigal in  conditions. No iron ores need be  hauled across long distances; no lime  brought from afar for mixture with  Boundary ores for smeltiug purposes:  Nature has chemically mixed these  ingredients in one deposit. All man  must needs mix with the ores of any  one camp is a proper proportion of fuel  coke, and in less than an hour from the.  lighting of the fires the molten metal  is flowing.  These vast mineral deposits demand  vast capital for profitable raising and  reduction to commercial fornix. And  so for a time the prospector deserted  these hills, content with his mere  annual assessment. He must wait the  advent of more and still more capital,  for this was strictly a low-grade copper  camp, he argued.  But latterly things have changed.  A few men schooled in rich gold and  silver lodes of other camps, read aright  the signs which nature had set up,- and  began to explore the foothills reaching  up from the valley to the mountains of  copper ore beyond. In these foothills  had remained unworked for many years  the earlier locations of the pioneers.  After one brief year half a score of  rich leads are being exploited, and men  are gratified and yet almost stunned  by the returns that come from th-.;  smelters-with- each-succeeding-shipment.  Standing at the corner of Govern  ment and Greenwood streets in tha  business heart of Greenwood, and  looking north a little over a mile along  the principal street, one sees side by  side just as the valley begins to swell  into the first foothills three properties  that it would seem aro destined to proclaim for the camp, from a silver and  gold standpoint, what the Mother Lode  and other large mines have from a  copper standpoint. In the center of  the valley lies the Elkhorn claim,  while to the east is the Providence,  and to the west the Gold Bug.  Like skirmish lines of some great  invading army of mineral wealth they  reach clear across the little valley,  joining foothill on the cast with foo'.-  hilt on the west. All clay at intervals  the play of their artillery may be heard,  as if firing- on some invested city, while  from the great quarries beyond the  heavier cannonading in the copper  quarries is heard, as  if advancing  in  support of the advance guard. From  all these properties rich ores have been  and are being shipped. These ores are  rich in both gold and silver.  The Providence property is more advanced than either of these others, and  its history since some local people took  hold of it last autumn reads like a fairy  tale. Shipments during- the last six  months have netted over S150 to the  ton. The last car netted an average  of S243 per ton. And this at only a  depth of 100 feet.  Recently a peculiar quality of ore  was encountered in one of the drifts,  which assayed 841,880 to the ton  The Elkhorn is shipping some very  fine ore, and the Gold Bug already has  a record for high returns. With systematic mining the Gold Bug will  doubtless vindicate its aristocratic  name.  Turning eastward and looking- just  beyond the city hall less than half a  mile and men will be seen at work developing three properties, two of which,  the Gold Finch and the E Pluribus  Unum, are yielding very rich ores and  improving with every shot  From the latter some tellurides have  been recently taken at a depth of sixty  feet which ran over S3000 to the ton.  Whether lured by the name or not I  cannot say, but American capital is  seeking this property.  In the quarter of a circle lying between the two camps thus referred to  several otner promising- claims are  being opened up. Notable among  these are the Defiance- and the Strathmore, both promising properties.  On at least eleven of these high-  grade properties, all within one and a  half miles of the city hall, development  work is now being carried on.  The results of the work of less than  one hundred men on their gold and  silver properties has been to instill  new hope and energy and life into the  prospector.  The warmth of the spring sun and  the wealth of the green foothills unite  to make him very comfortable and  very confident.  A new era has dawned for .the Boundary.    A golden day greets Greenwood.  ��8S3K3?SaSK3eE2KSBi  i Hi li  tw in  FURNITURE  rs  CROCKERY  CLASS \V ARE  CUTLERY  SILVERWARE  BAR GOODS  The   largest   hotels  and  finest  residences in B.C. were furnished by us throughout  VICTORIA, B.

The Grand Forks Gazette of April  IStli gave tUe local aim titers a lenythy  notice, a part of which follows:  " H. M. S. Pinafore, the well known  comic opera, was presented with great  success by local amateurs at the opera  house last night. From the stirring-  openii g- chorus "We sail the Ocean  Blue" until the curtain dropped at the  close of the final act the performance  passed, off without a hitch. A larger  or more appreciative audience was  never before assembled in this city.  At times its enthusiasm knew uo  bounds, principals and choruses alike  receiving- hearty encores and recalls.  There was no mistaking the verdict of  the people of Grand Forks. Many  who came prepared to show indulgence oroved to be the most wildly  enthusiastic."  It is hoped that citizens of Greenwood will turn out in large numbers,  not only to welcome visitors from a  neighboring town but to enjoy good  music as well.

WHEN \N NELSON  STOP  AT Till*  :HOTELE  TUe well known self-denial week of  the Salvation Army will be observed  by that body from May 24th to 30th.  Unusual activity has taken possession  of the Army's energetic members in  anticipation of this y'l'cat event.  The Army's bcncticieiit operations  are maintained purely by the free-will  offering's of the people. The needs of  its vast missionary labors among the  heathen abroad and the down-fallen  at home are chiefly met through the  agency of self-denial. Tlie Army is  doing- splendid work in its industrial  homes, rescue and maternity homes,  men's and women's shelters, established in different centres in this country, while the world over, the Army  has about 500 similar refitger. for the  fa lieu and destitute. The enthusiasm  which the Salvationists themselves  enter into the self-denial week is remarkable, aud it would probably be  hard to find a wearer of the uniform  who has not in addition to pecuniary  sacrifice, denied himself some luxury  or partial necessity of food or clothing  hy way of discipline.

Victoria day at Midway next Monday  will be celebrated in a right royal  manner, and if the day is fine crowds  will take in the excursion from Grand  Forks, Phoenix and Greenwood to tha-  picturesque camp. The local ball team  and several sprinters and junipers will  try to win laurels on the athletic  battle grounds.  J. F.

Chambers of Commerce  Visiting Delegates Will Reach Greenwood in September.  As already been stated in the Boundary Creek Times, the fifth congress of  the Chambers of Commerce of the  Emprire will be held in Montreal between the 17th and 20th of August.  Others years this convention was held  in London, but it was decided to hold  the meetings in Montreal this year in  order to give the business men of  Great Britain a favorable opportunity  to study the resources of the most important colony in the empire. After  the congress the delegates will tour  through the countiy .ind will reach  Greenwood about September 14th.  Mr. Geo. Hud will, secretary of the  Montreal Board of Trade, who is  also secretary cf the committee appointed to look after the comforts of  the visitors and arrange their itinerary has written the secretary of the  Greenwood Board of Trade. He says  in part:  "As you are probably aware the  Fifth Congress of the Chambers of  Commerce of the Empire will be held  in Montreal between the 17th aud 20th  of August. From advices received to  date it is probable that at least two  hundred delegates from Great Britain  and her colonies (apart from Canada)  will be present at this gathering. The  Canadian committee of arrangements  has prepared a lis., of tours in order to  enable the visitors to traverse Canada.  Naturally they depend upon the local  Board of Trade, at the points visited,  for advice and assistance in rendering-  the journey profitable  and  agreeable.  "If present plans can be carried out  the party, travelling in two sections of  aboat fifty each, would reach Greenwood by special from Rossland.  "Should your Board find it possible  to extend any courtesies to the visitors  during their short stay in Greenwood  it would be highly appreciated."  The local board and city council will  co-operate in showing the visitors  every courtesy in their power.

He fell backwards t<>  the ground, and although the distance  was only about ten fect.it was discovered tir.it his right arm was broken  near the shoulder. It is likely tlie  weight of a plane which he carried in  his right hand added force to the fall.  The brer.k is a bad one as it is up near  the shoulder, making ii difficult to us-s  splints. It is likil'y that Alderman  Kirkwood will, be incapacitated for  about six weeks.  Poultry Pointers  W. F.
