Lou Sue Was Released Under Sus-  ,  Dended Sentence-  i  ��-frOh0^4-s-CH*x^.>.><-{��x->:~��'X��>X' ^x^x-x-^x^^-x^^**********  Owing to the settlement of the adverse against issuing a crown grant  for the Acme claim and the adjournment of the case of Taylor vs the  Athelstan syndicate pending a settle  ment, the work of the supreme court  in Greenwood was concluded Thursday morning.  . In the case against Lu Sue referred  to last week the jury, were W. H. San-  some (foreman), D.' A.. McDonald, H.  Walker Harris, John Lucy, Hugh M.  Laing, James Newby, J. N. Paton, J  K. McEwen, Alex. Robinson, Walker  M. Ross, M. Tebo and Joseph N. Wil-  liamhurst, jr. The witnesses and the  evidence were practically the same as  at the preliminary hearing except that  J. G. McAllister, for whom Sue was  working, testified that he was a good  Chinaman, not quarrelsome, was kind  to the children and in answer to His  Lordship, said if he did not have satisfactory help in the house, he would-be  .glad to take him back again.  After addresses by Mr. McLeod, for  the prisonei, Mr. Shaw, for the Crown  and the learned Chief Justice's charge,,  the jury retired and after three hours  deliberation brought in a verdict of  guilty of assault with intent to do  grievous bodily harm and a strong  recommendation for mercy. His Lordship in discharging the jury said he  would keep their recommendation in  mind and remanded the prisoner for  solence until Wednesday morning.  On Wednesday His Lordship said as  the prisoner had already served six  months in jail he would give him another chance. He was to give bonds  in $300 to keep the peace, pay the costs  oX the prp^cutioii when he^.would be  let go under suspended sentence.  The case of Donagin vs. Nelson was  tiken up Monday afternoon. It was a  dispute as to who was entitled to a  piece of ground located as a fractional  mineral claim on the mountain east of  the city. J. W. Nelson located a mineral claim which he called the Starve-  out Fractional mineral claim on the  15th of September, 1902. On the 25th  of September, 1903, Robert Donagin  located the Acme Fractional mineral  claim which adjoined the Starve-out  Fractional. In the summer of 1903,  Nelson had his claim surveyed and  gave notice of application for certificate of iniprovements. The claim as  surveyed took in all the ground covered by the Acme Fraction and Donagin  adversed the application. Sydney M.  Johnson was examined for the plaintiff on Monday afternoon and Robert  Donagin on Wednesday forenoon. His  Lordship intimated that it was a case  for settlement and when tlie Court resumed at 1.IS p.m. counsel for the  plaintiff stated a settlement had been  reached. The Crown grant for the  Starve-out will be issued and Nelson  will take a two-third interest and  Donagin one-third, encli to pay their  own costs. J. P. McLeod appeared fcr  the plaintiff and H. C. Shaw for the  defendant.  On Wednesday a portion of the evi-  cence was heard in the case of Taylor  vs. the Athelstan Mining Syndicate.  Taylor claimed damage because of  breach of contract. He held that he  had the contract to haul the Athelstan  ore to the railway siding and that the  syndicate gave some of the ore hauling  to some one else. As there was a prospect of settling the case, both parties  to the action on Thursday consented  to an adjournment until the fall sitting when if a settlement is not reached in the meantime, the evidence will  be heard.  This completed the business of the  Court and His Lordship, the Chief  Justice, left for the Coast today.  SMELTER AT HADLEY.  Paul Johnston Hard at Work on the  Northern Enterprise.  The Mining Journal of Ketchikan,  Alaska reports that good progress is  being made in erection of the smelter  at Hadley by Paul Johnson, late superintendent of the smelter here. The  Journal says:  The Alki took a car load of machinery and material for the aerial tramway at Ihe Mamie mines, Hadley, on  Wednesday. The large engines for  the smelter were expected on the same  ship, but did not arrive. The underground developments at the Mamie  continue wholly satisfactory; indeed  there seems to be no end to the ore in  sight, much of it very high grade. One  drift recently cross-cut a solid body of  ore 14 feet in width which will run 25  per cent copper and $4 per ton in gold,  and the same cross-cut is now, after  passing through something more than  SO feet of ore, of lower grade but all  carrying good values, is again in a  body of sulphides fully as rich as the  14 feet first mentioned. The beauty of  it all is, that the ore is all rich enough  to pay independent of. the very high  grade ores which will only go to swell  to enormous proportions what would  otherwise be considered wholly satisfactory profits. The Mamie gives almost certain promise of becoming one  of the greatest mines ever known in  this or any other country.  The Mining Journal learns from  wholly reliable source that the new  smelter at Hadley. which will shortly  go into commission, will make smelting rates that.will enable a number of  mine owners in this district to maice  their several properties pay the costs  of gradual, if not rapid development  This will be good news fora number of  persons who are casting about for the  means'with which "to put (heir proper-:  ties on a paying basis.

THE PREMIER  IS TRICKY  McBride Has Broken Faith  With the Opposition.  I  In the Kamloops Bye-Election-  position Indignant. ..'*  -Op-  Victoria, May 27.���Premier McBride  is maintaining his reputation as a  political trickster whose word of honor  is not to be depended upon in matters  of political import where pledges should  be sacred with public men of any  repute. Recently negotiations were  carried on between the 'premier and  Stewart Henderson, representing the  leader of the Opposition, with a view  to securing a "saw off" in the.election  protests filed. The breaches of the  Elections Act were so flagrant in Kamloops that Mr. Henderson acting under  instructions would not consent to  dropping the protest. The: premier  overcame this difficulty by giving Mr.  Fulton, the member for Kamloops, a  portfolio. This seat thus became  vacant and the electors of Kamloops  would thus have an opportunity to express their disapproval of the methods  adopted in the recent election.. ;.Mr.  Henderson consented tp opening up  the 'Kamloops. seat "in this manner oh.  an undertaking from the premier that  the nomination would not be held before June 20th. Mr. Henderson left on  a business trip for California. Just as  soon as his back was turned the' premier called for nominations on May  30th and the elections a week later.  His object in deliberately lying to a  political opponent is evident. .Kamloops is a large constituency and by  hurrying the elections while Mr. Henderson was away and Mr. Macdonald  busy in Court, he hoped to get a snap  verdict before the district could be organized for a fight.  He is likely to succeed because there  isn't even time to call a convention of  the Liberals of Kamloops to regularly  nominate acandidate-in-oppositionHo"^  Mr. Fulton and he is likely to be returned by acclamation. Mr. McBride  may win Kamloops by lying and deceit but a day of reckoning is coming.  The Opposition leader detests that sort  of political warfare and has sent an  indignant protest to the premier. The  Liberal leader now realizes that his  opponent is a man utterly devoid of  political honor. In the future the premier is not likely to be given that  consideration which is usually ahown  the leader of the Government by the  leader of the Opposition and tricky  Dick will find that he has paid a heavy  price for his double dealing in,connection with the Kamloops bye-election.  GRAND FORKS MINING NOTES.  Grand Forks, May 26���George A.  Mcleod, who has a bond on the McKinley cluim, in Franklin camp, is  sending a force of men out on Monday  next to open up the' property and  develop it. J. Newton', one of the original owners, returned from the property yesterday and says the two men  who|have beeu prospecting on the McKinley since McLeod secuied the.option have opened up a aeam of high  grade ore, a sample of which he  brought down with him to have assayed. A party, representing outside  capital, has already made a flattering  offer for the property but Mr. McLeod  prefers to hold on until further development in done and in the meantime  he will form a company and with that  object in view has applied for incorporation. The McKinley was one of  the first properties to be located and  developed in Franklin camp and is  looked oti as a very rich prospect.  Thos Newby and associates left yesterday for Franklin camp to commence  work on the Glasgow and other claims  >n which they are interested in that  camp and will be there for several  month��. The prospect of the early  building of the north fork branch of  the Kettle Valley lines has  caused   a  onsiderable amount of work and ac-  Fresh bread daily at  Galloway Bros.     ,'vity in that promising camp.

Can adian Tories, -who are pic-  the back country of  Ontario aud Quebec as a worthless desert, are making a mistake  they will yet deplore. Fifty  years ago, when the Grand Trunk  proper ��� was being built;, some of  the fmest sections of Ontario,  notably the Huron aiid Bruce  country, were set down as irreclaimable wastes; and we all  know how the Hudson Bay Coni-  pany officials ridiculed the idea of  wheat being grown for export in  Manitoba.. i"Seward's ice-box"  was only one instance among  many of the folly that concluding  that becatise a region is new, unopened ;'aud a'way to the north of  civilization it must necessarily be  ^ood for nothing. There is every  reason to believe that the country  between Winnipeg land'.-;. Quebec  which the Grand Trunk Pacific  wilL traverse is rich in "timber,  minerals and waterpower, and, iu  addition, contains vast stretches  ������of gop^'farming, land. .''Ytjtithe  Tories; make., it- their business' to  deride the Liberals who say so,  and will have it that it is nothing  shortrOf.'crimiilal to build a line  there. Such is., the. '-'compelling  power" of party politics that it  turns men otherwise patriotic  enough into enemies of their  country!  Some one has said with truth  that, at present, all that part of  Canada north bf the St.Lawrence  the.Ottawa and Lake Superior,  consists of little more -than the  roadbed of. the Canadian Pacific  Railv\ ay.

" for Cbristmctidij of G. f. P.  Because it. doubles the. industrial and productive area of Canada.  Because it doubles opportunity  for every man in Canada.  Because it offers the shortest  and best all-Canadian line from  tide .water-to. tide water, summer  and-winter. ;  Because it is the-only all-British railway across the continent  under one management.  Because it is. so situated as to  be secure from foreign invasion;  giving; depth, and therefore,  strength to our country, to the  advantage to both Canada and  the empire.  Because it gives development  and competition in transportation  to 1,200 miles of grain-growing  country in the West, as compared  with 400 miles of such country  developed^by the Canadian-Pacific Railway..  Because it develops vast coal  fields on the Saskatchewan, Atha-  baska and Peace rivers, for the  supply of fuel to the prairies.  Because it gives the most northwesterly part of the prairie region, which is furthest from the  Atlantic, a short outlet. to the  Pacific. ' '  Because it connects the railway  system of Canada' with 2000 miles  of steamboat navigation on the  Athabasca, Peace, Laird and  Mackenzie rivers, their great  lakes and the Arctic ocean.  Because it developes mining  and lumbering in northern British Columbia aud provides facilities for profitable interchange of  mutual necessities between the  prairies and mountain regions of  the far West.  Because in ensures the third  railway outlet from and through  the wheat fields to the lakes.  Because it developes a thousand  miles of northern Ontario and  Quebec, at present unknown and  inaccessible.  Because it.cuts nearly 200 miles  off the present Intercolonial distance between Quebec and Can-  ada's winter port, St. John.  '"Because by government ownership and control of rates, with  modern construction and adequate equipment, in provides an  all-year<ound outlet for western  grain; and gjves the merchant  and manufacturers of eastern  Canada profitable access to the  mark.et of the great West.  Because it do.es this without  laud grant, tax exemption or provincial or. local aid of any kind.  Because it induces the investment of one hundred millions of  British capital in Canada; and  correspondingly interests the  British public in Canada's welfare.  Because co-operation with the  Grand Trunk Company secures  effective, satisfactory and business-like operation; ensures fulfilment of all engagements, provides  business from the stait, and  secures the government from payment on its guarantee.  Because by. that co-operation  all principal points in eastern  Canada are put in direct connection with the West without extra  cost.  Because it transfers the through  traffic interests of the Grand  Trunk, from the Western States  to Western panada. "  Because it provides . against  overcapitalization for effective  government control of rates, and  secures running rights to other  roads throughout its whole  length.  Because an Atlantic.outlet for  the Canadian Northern, and extension of the Intercolonial to the  wheat fields, is provided for without a cent of additional public-  cost.  Because it gives maximum public control for a minimum public  outlay, and absolute security for  the fin?ncial responsibility assumed.  SALE OF GILPIN RANCH.  Frand Forks, May 26���R. R.

The attendance was if anything larger  than that^of previous years;and all:  were ^apparently ��� satisfied with the  outing. One has to go to Midway on  its annual gala d".y to learn something  about the wonderful and varied resources of this cpuntry. There one  finds' .prosperous: farmers from .the  couutry'as far westas Anarchist Mountain. Miners from all over the Boundary and even from- the Similkameen,  lumbermen, merchants, professional  men���in fact all classes from a large  area; congregate at the pretty little  town at the' Boundary line, swap  stories, exchange views on various  topics and fraternize at the refreshment counters. ������ The American cousins  can also be found . there aud the picturesque '^natives', including the gaily  adorned.:'klootches, come ,��� to see the  sports and incidentally rake 'in some  of the shekels. They generally have a  few fast'horses that carry off the big  prizes and as Lo is a dead.game sport,  he generally makes some money by  betting. .

The Greenwood nine were easy winners. Curlew's battery was ��� fairly  good but the fielding could-be' improved upon.   The score vvas 11 tb 3.   ���'  The horseracing was on the square.  Every race from the prospectors' race  to .'that of.'the fleetest horse were run  for. all that' was in it and the best horse  always won. ^ While not, as fast as  some of the; blgi-* races: still as muchr  entertainment could be extracted from:  them.

Mr. D. R. Laird ofthe Bank of Nova  Scotia, a Visitor to Greenwood.  R. D, Laird, manager of the Bank of  Nova Scotia at Vancouver, was a  visitor to. the city this week. Mr.  Laird is a cousin of Mrs. H. C. Shaw,  of this city, and was. a guest of Mr.  Shaw's during his visithere;. He is a  son of Hon. . David Laird, who was  Minister of the ' Interior during the  McKenzie administration, governor of  the Northwest and at present commis-  sionertof Indian affairs at Winnipeg.  The Bank of Nova. Scotia is one the  big banking institutions of Canada.  During recent years it has been giving  more attention to. business in the  growing. West. The bank has several  branches in Ontario, Manitoba and the  Northwest Territories. Mr. Laird is  its pioneer in British Columbia. He,  has been in Vancouver for several  months. His bank is showing that it  came to this province to stay by erecting a substantial bank building on  Hastings street. The building will be  ready for occupancy in June.  ' In the meantime Mr.: Laird is making  himself familiar with busines icondi-  tions in the province. He'has already  visited the Kootenay district and the  Boundary and will take a run into the  rich farming district of Okanagan before returning to Vancouver.    Like all  Easterners he has been favorably impressed with the wonderful variety of  natural resources which the province  possesses and believes that conditions  are rapidly becoming more settled.  The province with its wealth of fish,  lumber and mineral resources offers a  good field for the investor and he feels  confident that his bank will not regret  coming to the most western province  in the Dominion.  ����ett����a������0��a��6��e��a��a��0aaee0��a��e��o��a��0��a��o*.a��'��fae*e��t  LAWN TENNIS MATCH-  The first inter-urban lawn tennis  match for the year 1904, between the  Phoenix and Greenwood lawn tenuis  clubs was played in Greenwood on the  afternoon of May 24th on the grounds  of the Greenwood tennis club.

In 1899 when all the  Boundary towns were enjoying good  times Mr. Welch and his associates  were building the C. & W. railway.  Today he is managing the Great  Northern railway contract for J. W.  Stewart. In a few days active work  will be commenced all along, the line  from Grand Forks to Phoenix. The  sub-contractors are on the ground.  Construction outfits are arriving daily  and there is a busy hum about Grand  Forks which could not be heard a few  weeks ago. With about 2,000 men distributed between Gtand Forks and  Phoenix, the outlook for lively times  in these townti is bright. Greenwood's  turn will come a little later on when  the road from ,Eholt to Midway down  Boundary Creek will be built.  The Dominion Government has carried out its promise to stock Boundary  Creek and Long Lake with fish.  About two week ago Colin B. Sword,  Provincial Fisheries Inspector, and  Mr. Mitchell, superintendent of the  Dominion hatchery near Kault, visited  the Boundary waters and secured the  assistance of C. L. Thomet in the  work they wished to do. Mr. Sword  returned-to- the Coast "but Messrs.'  Mitchell and Thomet went up to the  lakes up the West Fork district and  secured fry there anS in James Creek.  Unfortunately during the trip Mr.  Mitchell had his face badly poisoned  by poison ivy. He was nursed at Mr.  Thomet's residence. For some days  he was totally blind but has now fully  recDvered from the effects of the  poisonous weed., . The fry was planted  this week in Long Lake and Boundary  Creek and in a short time it is expected  that these waters will have plenty of  the gamey fish from the West Fork  waters.
