The  General  Mining News  of the  Week.    .  James Campbell, who has been visit  ing W. M. Law for the past month,  left'for his home in New York on Monday. Mr. Campbell has spent four  very busy weeks in the. Boundary. He  came here to see our. mines and prospects. He saw them'., and they must  have given him a good impression as  he took with him two or three options  on high grade properties almost within  the city limits. Mr. Campbell's intentions are to get different people whom  he represents in London and Paris interested in Boundary mines. He will  leave New York for London and Paris  the first of the coming';,week.    <  Mr. Campbell, on!th| eve of his departure, in conversation said:  "I have never seen a better opportunity for making money in mining  than exists here, provided the initial  capital is judiciously invested aud the  ioperatio.ns honestly and efficiently con-  'ducted.""  -A  ' Through theYSsSnlts: of his visit here  he .has,, acquired-,-,,a'/my?-y���thor^i:-^.'."���  knowledge of the local situation���.'... and  seems very enthusiastic to return  should he be successful in the old  country to prove for himself that the  opinion he has forrned of tlie''Boundary  isnot wrong.  John Mathews has been doing considerable work thisspring on his properties lying west of the local smelter.  On the Putman claini which he is now  working on some very fine galena ore  has been taken out. In the 17 foot  shaft-the-bottomis -all.. ..in..cire.^TKe.  other two properties Vie owns which  adjoins the Putman are the old Dublin  and Eureka both of which are very  favorable looking properties.  Al. Sanderson who has working the  past winter at the Elkhorn mine, left  Monday morning for Wellington  camp where he will put in the summer  working on his property, the Jack Pot  claim. The Jack Pot adjoins the  Athelstan and has ,had considerable  work done on it. It is Mr. Sanderson's  intention to1 do considerable surface  work as well*as sinking in the shaft  which is down 35 feet on tlie incline.  In this shaft considerable ore lias been  taken tiiit, assays of which give good  returns.  THE BIG DEAL.  The long looked for is about to happen. The most absorbant question,  when will the Montreal & Boston Copper Company begin operations? will  soon be answered. The head principals of the company, Messrs. Munroe  aud Pemberton, are expected to arrive  here to-morrow or Monday. A  ment has been made on llio Brooklyn  and Stemwinder deal. The balance of  the money for the western shareholders  in the other properties involved in the  deal is in the bank at Spokane  It is beyond doubt now that the big  deal which Mr. Munroe and his asso  ciates have been working on the last  two months has gone through and that  operations at the smelter will begin iu  a vei y short time  The work of opening up the mines  with the exception of the Athelson,  Emma and Brooklyn may take some  little time, but those three properties  which have ore enough on the dumps  can begin shipments at once- and v. ill  keep the smelter running until tlie  Stemwinder, Morrison and Sui:set will  begin regular shipments.  DRAPER���M'ENTIRE.��� ������  The Seattle Post of April %)th published the following notice '.-pf Miss  Clara McEnthe's marriage to Alfred  E, Draper. Miss McEntire who will  be remembered by many, was one of  Greenwood's most popular young  ladies, having lived here with her parents almost three years: "A home  wedding was celebrated at 8 o'clock  on Wednesday evening of this week^at  the home of Robert A. Smith, 228 Nob  Hill avenue, when Miss Clara' McEntire and Mr. Alfred E.. Draper.]were  united in marriage, Rev. O. H. McGill,  of the Battery Street Methodist Episcopal Church, officiating. . Miss McEntire has almost since childhood  made her home with Mr. " and .'-Mrs';  Smith. She is favorably known- ia  her circle of friends in North Seattle.  Mr. and Mrs. Draper will make their  home in Anacortes. At the conclusion  of the ceremony Mrs. Smith, assisted  by Mrs. Hassell, served a dainty wedding supper. . .  OUR PUBLIC SCHOOL. -., .

H- B- Munroe Asks Assistance in The  Coliettine of Photos. ���    ;^  ::jicancer trecause._. _  H. W. Bretall, a former resident of  Greenwood and one of who composed  the staff of P. Burns & Co. of this city,  committed suicide in Spokane Saturday last. The following is from the  Review of that date:  "Despondent because of a cance'r'of  the mouth and had been barely able to  eat or talk for two months, H. WiUiam  Bretall placed a. revolver to his right  temple and sent a bullet into his brain  at noon yesterday in room 11 of the  Golden West hotel, First avenue and  Washington street.  The chambermaid went to the room  tD make it up, and pushing open the  door, discovered Bretall on the 'floor  with the revolver lying near. Coroner  D. L. Smith was summoned, but found  that the man had been dead for at least  two hours.-  Bretall's home was in Heppner, Oregon, where he was in the butcher business. He had been suffering from  cancer for years and had come to Spokane for ..treatment. Dr.. George Doo-  little attended him, but his case was  beyond cure.  He was about 49 years old, about five  .,;lY. Ifeet seven'inches in height andwas a  widower, wi*hout children. He was a  member of the Knights of Pythias and  belonged to the German Lutheran  church.  The body was taiten to Smith & Co.'s  undertaking rooms and will be buried  from there this afternoon at-3p.nii  The funeral will be held under the  auspices of the Knights of Pythias and  Rev. P. Groschupf will officiate.  The session on Monday, evening of  the city council was rather a quiet one,  nothing of any serious importance  happened during the past week to disturb their peaceful-minds.-    '���'-. r:- - .

The minutes of the previous meeting  being approved, the city clerk brought  forward several'^corritnunications, one  of which caused some stir around the  boar<?. It was from H. B.

Wellwobd of the Rossland hotel,  appeared in person.to protest' against  tlie.same by-law but Aid.

Possibly in a few instances some applying for a saloon  license:ihay'be put to some trouble in  getting signers of property holders  who do not live in the city, but in  very few instances.

Munroe asking  the council's assistance in gathering  together a collection of photos of our  mines, city and the different industries. The council appointed a committee and gave them power to purchase such. The photos are to be a  part of an exhibit at the St. Louis  Fair.  The council endorsed the action of  the Rossland council in the taxation of  railroadproperty in the city limits.  , The licensing by-law was laid over  for another week before it is finally  passed so that the hotel keepers may  have ample time to take any necessary  steps.

IABEL>  FRIDAY,   MAY 6  1004  THE WORK ACCOMPLISHED.  The Tories parade the growth  of expenditure as evidence that  Liberals have been wasteful.  They never by any chance tell  the other side of the story, what  Liberals have done with the  money.     Here  are some of the  1. The gross foreign trade.of  Canada has risen from $239,000,-  000 in 1896, the last year of the  Tory rule, to $467,000,000. It is  now four times greater than it  was in 1868. To put it in another way, the gross foreign  trade during the last seven years  of Tory rule, ' 1890-96v was $1,-  630,000,000, whilst for the seven  years, 1897-1903, the Liberal rule  .. it.. has.been^, 540,000,000.���-  2. Population has greatly in.-,  creased since ?896; immigration  was never so large and the exodus has practically ceased. Meanwhile a very considerable movement of Americans into Canada  has set in. Down to June 30  last, the American immigrants  to the Canadian Northwest numbered 120,000. All that country  is being rapidly settled up, and  as its population grows the demand for factory goods and general merchandise from the older  provinces increases.  3. Liberals have added to and  improved the Intercolonial till it  is now able to earn running expenses; and these betterments  have helped indirectly to promote  interprovincial trade, which was  never so great in the history of  the country.  4. They have improved the St.  Lawrence rqute, are now providing a channel 30 feet deep between tidewater and Montreal,  have built canals west of Montreal, and constructed minor  works of various kinds at other  points, all with the view of  cheapening transportation rates  and so increasing the selling  value of Canadian products.  5. They have opened the  Yukon, preserved order there and  aided in establishing another  market for eastern goods.  6. The abounding prosperity is  due, of course, to natural causes;  but Liberals can claim credit for  having, by a wise readjustment  of the tariff and other measures,  allowed industry full play and  done all that could have been  done by human means to advance  the general interests of the  country.  7.@jThey are now paving the  way for the construction of a  second transcontinental road,  which will cost the taxpayer  little, ensure competition and  lower rates, and open the back  country of tne older Provinces as  well as a new country in the  West. From being on a side  street when the Liberals came in,  Canada has leaped to a front  street; and under the same wise  and progressive rule is bound to  grow apace in the future.  Who wants to return to the old  days when the Tories legislated  chiefly for themselves and their  friends; when stagnation prevailed and people moved out, and the  rest of us spent the time largely  in sectional and sectarian quarrels.  son of the salient features of the  two agreements:���  C.

The  Bible tells us that of those sent to  spy out the Promised Land, some  came back and reported it to be a  country "that^ eateth up[^ the in-  hrbitants" thereof/' ~ That is  about the attitude of the Tory  leaders in the present case, with  this difference, however, that  they condemn the land without  having seen it, on the principle  apparently that it is their duty  to speak evil of an enterprise  fathered by the Liberal party  whether they know anything  about it or not.  C. P. R. VS. G. T. R.  The following taken from an  exchange so clearly presents the  leading features of the two transcontinental railway contracts that  it has been reproduced in full.  "When the Opposition has said  all they can say, the fact remains  that the Government's agreement  with the Grand Trunk Pacific is  out of sight more favorable for  the country than that made by  the Tories with the Canadian  Pacific. The reply to this is that  the Canadian Pacific was a  pioneer line. They forget that,  before they transferred it to the  present company, the project had  been in the hands of the Government for ten years, that the Government had built most of the  really difficult portions, and that  men like Sir Sanford Fleming  were sure it was destined to be a  profitable enterprise. The Grand  Trunk is a pioneer line too in the  sense that it will pass wholly  through virgin territory. Here,  in condensed form, is a  compari-  Two Dispatches From Baltimore   ���WHICH TELL THEIR OWN STOREY-  "'Richard F.

The reader will have seen the  announcement, made in the Ontario Legislature, that the Canadian Northern is about to build a  line from, Toronto to Sudbury and  give running rights over it to the  Canadian Pacific in return for  running rights over the Canadian  Pacific from Sudbury to Port  Arthur. Thi? looks like a step  towards, the absorption of the  Canadian^NorthernbyJhe^Caua-  dian Pacific; at any rate it confirms the suspicion that the two  companies are "getting to bed  together" in framing rates for the  East and..West. It is obvious  that a competing line cannot be  built too soon.  That the Grand Truuk Pacific  will benefit the West by affording  honest competition to the ranchman and wheat-grower will be  admitted by every rational person, unless, like Mr. Osier, he  has his own reasons for disliking  competition up there. That it  will benefit Ontario, Quebec and  the Maritime Provinces by giving  lower rates on west-bound manufactures to the West, as well as  by opening vast areas within  their confines that, without the  road, must remain what they are  now, a wilderness of no economic  value, is equally clear. And that  these great services to Cauada  will be performed at comparatively little cost to the Canadian  people must be obvious to anyone  who reads the Grand Trunk Pacific agreements with an open  mind instead of with a set determination, to condemn.

Robinson, who has been supplying the citizens of Greenwood  through the columns of the Times with  all the grey matter he could draw from  his upper stope for the past three or  four weeks, has been compelled to  keep his room this week on account of  rheumatism.  Fred J. Mitchell, merchant tailor at  Fernie but formerly of Greenwood,  was one of the heavy loosers in the  $1,000,000 fire which completely wiped  out the business portion of that thriving coal mining town. The Fernie  Free Press was fortunate in saving  their presses, type, etc., and. although  appearing in a small sheet last week,  will resume their original size and  style hereafter.  The Church of England: At St.  Jude's Hall on Thursday next, May 12,  the Festival of the Ascension, there  will be a celebrationof the -Holy Comr  munion at 8 a.m. Evensong with an  address at 8 p. m.  Two cases areup before Judge Hallett this afternoon charged with allowing their cattle to run at large.in the  city limits. There is a.law. prohibiting  cattle and horses running at large in  the city and it should be strictly enforced. Every spear of grass, every  tree of umbrageous growth, every  clinging vine, every blossoming flower  adds much to the value of a home and  it is useless waste of time for our citizen* trying to beautify, their homes  and surroundings if animals are allowed to run at large as has been the case  in the past.  A young professional man of respectable  standing and some means wishes to communicate with a young- lady of refinement, with a  view to matrimony. Address, Similkameen.  this office. ......

At Tuesday night's meeting' of the  Oddfellows Lodge, Financial Secretary G. B. Taylor was elected representative to the Grand Lodge to convene in Rossland tm June 9th. T. M.  Gulley was elected as an alternate.  A shack belonging- to Chas. McArthur, close to the Elkhorn brewery,  was burned last nlg-ht about 9 o'clock.  The origin of the fire is not known,  the shack being- unoccupied it is supposed to be the work of an incendiary.  The assessment of the city of Grand  Forks for 1904, as compiled by the ci+.y  treasurer, is as follows: "Improvements, $552,015; lands, 5800,730; total,  $1,352,745. Alter deducting- exemptions and 50 per cent on improvements  the taxable assessment will amount to  about $1,000,000.     The   population   of  the city at the present time  is   1600   Sun.  Last the year the city paid of $5000  of its bonded debt, taking- up that  amount of debentures which had yet 15  years to run. This year's council has  paid off $3000 floating debt and reduced the bonded debt $3000. The assess-  ment for taxation purposes this year is  $70,000 less than last year on lands,  while improvements have been raised  $1000. The tax Tatewill remain about  the same as last year.  Wilfred Cookston who has been up  at Beaverdell for two or three weeks  was brought down . to-day suffering  f rem ^ appendicitus. Mr. Hyde, Dr.  Oppenheimer's assistance, made a trip  to Beaverdell for the purpose of bringing Mr. Cookston down. At the'time of  writing, particulars cannot be obtained as to how serious the troubles  are. Mr. Cookston was brought as far  as Midway in a buggy and from there  on the train and was taken to the hospital.  The regular meeting' of the Greenwood Typographical Union was held  in Phoenix oii: Saturday last. Those  in attendance were President Sherwood, Secretary Evans, W. B. Wilcox,  Charles Elliott, H. W.

It must be remembered  that as every jeweler has his competitor, so every small town has its competing town, and it is the duty of the  merchants to see that their town has a  paper which serves its interests  against all other considerations and  which circulates wherever in the  vicinity there is a fighting chance for  trade.  It is the misfortune of some narrow  minded merchants to see no competitor  but the fellow across the  way or down  the street.      They   are   too   prone to  forget that some very lively   competitors  may  live  in   the next town or in  some distant city.    A merchant always  serves his own interests by serving the  interests of his town; business brought  to his town is   business  brought to his  store, and .a good  local  paper is an effective factor in this respect.    When a  merchant realizes  the   necessity   of a  first-class local paper to him iu his business, he will probably ask himself this  question :     "What can I and the other  merchants of this town do to make this  paper more effective  for  the   general  trade interests  of   the   town ?"     The  editor   should    constantly   be   asking  himself:    "What can I do to make this  paper a better advertising  medium ?"  When the merchants aud the editors of  any one town ^et down  to  answering  these questions, all of them have started on the road to more business.  000000000000<>00000<K>000<>00  A, LOGAN & Co,  Watchmakers  And ���,.,.

WATCHES  DIAMONDS  JEWELRY  Copper Street, Greenwood  _    .A COMMUNITY= OF-INTERESTr   -  The following sage aiid extremely  timely remarks were first published in  The Keystone, the leading jewelers'  paper of the world. The remarks :s  here written do not apply to jewelers  alone but io all merchants alike.  Each and every one of our readers  should thoroughly peruse them, for it  ��� is by understanding such questions,  that a town, through its principal  newspaper, constantly forges lo the  front.  "The admitted necessity of publicity  in modern business doing has given  every merchant, especially in the  smallc- towns, a personal interest in  the local paj er and its editor. The  old time cus'toili of putting 'a card' in  the newspaper 'just, lo help it out'  should have no* place in up-to-date  store keeping. The jeweler should  buy space in the local press solely lo  help hi.s business; and a.s modern competition generally compels the purchase of such space, it i.s the duty of!  the jeweler as well as every otli  merchant to see to it that the pap r  thus patronized is such a.s will ensure  a suitable return for his investment.

Parrish, general manager of  the Le Roi, has again assumed his  duties at Rossland. ��� His health has  been improving very rapidly of late.  Mrs. Dalmage and her sister Miss  Flossie West left yesterday for Mrs.  Dalmage's home in Vancouver. Miss  West will attend school at the coast  city.  The incoming afternoon passenger  from Robson was six hours late both  Tuesday and Wednesday this week.  The cause of the delay was a rock  slide near Fife.  In another column will be noticed a  government ad. calling for the erection  of a dri:i hall at Rossland. The. hall  is to be of brick structure and cost in  the neighborhood of S25.000.  A benefit ball is being given by the  miners at the Mother bode mine  Wednesday evening. May llth.  The proceeds are to be devoted  in aid of a reading room. James Bush  of Midway will furnish the music.  Our genial custom officer is dividing  his spare moments in the growing of  rose bushes as is evidenced by a visit in  the hall of the Wallace-Miller block.  He has about twenty different species  of roses nicely growing and no doubt  with time Mac. will become quite a  horticulturist.  Hay's bread and pastry is on sale at  Munroe's.  The recent fire at Fernie should be a  "warning to othertownsin-the shape of  keeping plenty of hose on hand and  also seeing that the hydrants are in  proper working order. We do not  want to insinuate that outs are out of  order but it may be a very good suggestion to have them all tested and see  that they are in proper working order.  The residents of Rock Creek and  vicinity have formed what is known as  the Rock Creek Gun Club. The members, of which there are a large number, are pledged to obey in all particulars the laws for the protection of fish  and game in the province and to aid  by furnishing information to all proper authorities in   prosecuting anyone  who infringes the said laws by shooting game out of season or by using  illegal devises for killing game.  The new dining room of the Windsor  hotel will soon be open to the public.  It is the intention of the management  to run one of the best if not the best  dining rooms in the Boundary just as  soon as evert-hing can be gotten ready.  Mr. George O. Buchanan, Superintendent of the Federal Lead Bounties,  says the Kootenay mine-owners have  received 5121,000 in bounties, the production for the nine months of the  fiscal year being 8,000 tons of metallic  lead. The resumption of the St.  Eugene and other mines is expected  to bring the production to 15,000 tons  in the remaining three months of the  fiscal year. The previous year's total  was slightly over 9,000 tons, so the  bounty has already had a marked  effect.  Arnold D. Hallett has been elected  representative from tne local lodge,  K. of P., to the Grand Lodge of the  Knights of Pythias, which meets next  Tuesday in Grand Forks. TheKnights  of Grand Forks are planning an excursion for the representatives and Grand  Lodge officers to Phoenix, where local  brethren will show them through the  big mines. It is also the intention if  time can be gotten to visit this city as  well, but as yet the visiting of this  point is not definite.  J. McDonnell, a miner at Phoenix,  died on Sunday last and was  buried in the Greenwood cemetery  on Tuesday. Mr. Mcdonnell while  working in the mines contracted a  severe cold wnich developed into la  grippe. He was'taken to the hospital  in that city but medical aid seemed to  be of no avail, and he passed away on  Sunday. The services were held in  the Roman Catholic church in this  city. A large number of friends and  acquaintances from Phoenix accom-  pfmied the remains to its last resting  place. Mr. McDonnell was in his 33  year.  Meets every Wednesday evening  at 3:00 in the K. of P. Hall.  All Brothers welcome.  A. I). HA1.T.ETT, A. S. KMKRKE,  K, of r. and s. C. c.

Frank Sherwood, United States customs officer running between Danville  and Marcus on the Great Northern,  was in the city on Monday.  Several men left this morning by the  West Fork stage for the Carmi mine.  The crew on the -big' West Fork properly will be added to as the further  development work proceeds.  Some of the more progressive citizens of Grand Forks'have been trying  tb enthuse enough life in the remaining  few of her citizens to ��� hold a celebration in that .town on the 24th of May.  The great Republic cyanide mill will  soon be sold for the mortgage upon it.

McKenzie, a brother of Alderman McKenzie of this city, who has  been running the West Fork stage has  sold his stage line to a man by the  name of McKay. Mr. McKenzie is  making all preparations prior to going  into Ihe Peace river country about the  middle of this month. His intention  is to start from Beaverdell with a pack  train of six horses going from there  to Ashcroft 'where he "will strike the  Cariboo waggon road after which he  will take the trails on up.  James Dennison Sword, M. E.,  leaves this evening for Highland Valley, near Ashcroft, where he has got a  bond on a group of claims containing  a phenomenal showing of copper ore.  The surface croppings are said to be  of enormous proportions, excelling in  richness many of the best showings in  the Boundary. Smith Curtis, the well  known mining man and ex-M. P. P.  for Rosslan.., is associated with Mr.  Sword in the deal The property has  been surveyed for a crown grant, the  work being done by Kenneth L. Burnett, P. L. S., who has just returned  from the ground. Mr. Burnett reports  Highland Valley as practically free;  from snow. Thegrourid is: only 12.  miles from the main line of the C.P.R./  and is reached by an ��� easy grade and  without difficulty. Mr. Sword will  commence extensive development work  as soon as he reaches the scene of operations.--From- present-indications ���it-  is reasonable to presume that the  Transvaal group, which is the name of  Mr. Sword's bonanza, is destined to  become one of the really big copper  mines on the American continent���  Rossland Miner.  Unsecured creditors of the Lenora  mine at Mount Sicker, Vancouver  Island; Tuesday agreed to accept stock  in the new company backed by London, England, capitalists. The proposal was made through Sam Matson  of Victoria. The new company is  capi talized for ��1,500,000. It takes over  the Lenora mine, the Breen and Bellinger smelter at Crofton, the Mount  Sicker railway, connecting them, and  Lloyd's sawmill, which supplies lumber for the mill. All will be operated  in conjunction. H. C. Bellinger accepts about $150,000 in stock for his  share i i the smelter. James Breen of  Spokane will take about 5300,000 in  cash as hi.s share. Mr. Breen withdraws on account of other interests  requiring hi.s attention. When -ill the  interests are satisfied ��� there will be  3200,000 for development work ou the  mine. It is exj.ccied the smelter may  require an iica a*��ed capacity as a  result.  INBS0R  ERNEST J. CARTIER, Proprietor.  Finest Furnished House in the Boundary.  Steam Heated.
