Great  Northern  W'ork  Soon to
P, Welch & Co,* Have Received Instructions to Begin Immediate  Construction   of  Grand  Forks^Phoenix
Branch 2£ Road Will Be Continued to Curlew Through Greenwood and Midway,
J. J. Hill has at last decided to encircle the Boundary district with his
line of railway. P. Welsh & Co. have
have received instructions to begin the
irriniediate construction of the road
from Grand Forks to Phoenix and it is
semi-officially announced that the road
will be continued down the Boundary
Creek valley, through Greenwood to
Midway and on to Curlew where it will
connect with the Republic branch. In
this way the road will encircle the
Boundary CreeV district and tap every
mining camp in it.
The Great Northern Company will
build'under the V. V. & E. charter
which was acquired some years ago
and under which the road has already
been built from Cascade to Carson.
The "forerunners' of railway construction are appearing. Wednesday's
train brought in a number of sub-
Italian "contractors whose familiar
faces had not been seen here since 1899
when P. Welsh & Co constructed the
C.&'W. railway. Railway men are
clannish and whether P. Welsh & Co.
are   operating  in   British   Columbia,
Montana or in the East, the same subcontractors can generally be found
working for them. Tony Scarpella was
among the first to return to the Boundary. He was here with P. Welsh in
1899 and has since been with him on
various contracts in other points.
Mr. Welsh returned this week to
Spokane from St. Paul where he received instructions to carry out the
contract awarded his firm some time
ago. It will be remembered that when
Mr. Hill began the construction of the
road from Marcus to Republic through
B. C. from Cascade to Carson, it was
then announced that the Phoenix
branch would be built and that the
contract for the same had been awarded P. Welsh & Co. Construction on
the main line was interrupted by litigation and by the time Mr. Hill had
got rid of various forms of litigation
which clever lawyers had instituted to
impede his progress, the money market was so unsatisfactory that it was
decided to postpone further building.
It was thought that the adverse decision in the merger suit would further
delay construction but evidently Mr.
Hill has decided to go ahead with his
Boundary railway at. once.
The branch from. Grand Forks to
Phoenix is an important one since it
will put the Great Northern in touch
with the Granby enterprises. It will
admit of that company competing for
the hauling of the Granby Company's
ore from its mines'at Phoenix to its
smelter at Grand Fonts, hauling coke
from the Crow's Nest Pass coal fields
to the smelter and hauling the product
of the smelter to the eastern markets.
This branch will follow the Fourth
of July Creek to a point near the
Athelstan mine, it will then diverge
eastward toward the ;North Fork and
creep along that divide until a low
pass is reached, thence westward to
Eholt and will take the eastern slope
of the Boundary Creek- watershed to
Phoenix. The road through Greenwood and Midway to Curlew will tie on
to the Phoenix road at a point near the
Oro Denoro mine, ' The latter road
will also be rushed in order that the
Great Northern may reach  the Green
wood smelters. This work will be
hastened should the Montreal & Boston Company's deal for the purchase
of the Dominion Copper Company arid
other big properties be successfully
floated. The Great Northern would
then be in a position to haul the ores
uf Phoenix camp to the company's
smelter at Boundary Falls.
Whether Mr. Hill has decided to continue his road westward through the
Similkameen has not yet been announced. Word comes from the coast
that Premier McBride gives as an ex
cuse for not holding the summer ses
sion, that his government is negotiating with Great Northern officials to aid
the construction of a Coast-Kootenay
line by that company and should these
negotiations be successful the necessity of holding a special session to
discuss railway matters would be
The announcement that work would
be commenced immediately in the

W. construction.     Old  timers remem.
ber the business boom that soon followed the advent of railway contractors. They also remember that P.
Welsh & Co. had the contract for the
construction of the C."& W.',\that this
firm paid its bills promptly and did
everything possible to encourage local
trade. The members ; of the big;railway firm will be cordially welcomed
back to the Boundary. It is understood that Mr. Welsh will have personal charge of the work in this
While the Great Northern is preparing to invade what has heretoforebeen

People don't make their own time in
this country. Years ago when we
went to school,, we were taught how
the earth revolved on its axis and how
old Sol did his turning in an opposite
direction so that'when it was high
daylight in one part of this earth, it
was night somewhere else. The geographies of our school boy or school
girl days explained the matter so
clearly that every child knew how it
all happened. This explanation we
once knew, but breathe it not Gath,
proclaim it not in the streets of Aske-
ton, we have forgotten just how it
'worked out This we do know that 24
hours is gained or lost in travelling
■around the world. Railway companies pratically control the time in this
country; there are other things controlled by the same railway companies
but these need not be discussed here.
Now the railway companies regulate
time iu chunks. As they travel westward they let the minutes take care of
themselves and cut off time by hours
'only. 'For instance the C. P. R. leaves
"Montreal on one time and as it gets to
'Fort William it cuts off an hour, proceeds under the Fort William time to
Brandon, cuts off an other hour and
goes to Donald where another hour is
cut off. Time is not interferred with
Unless by. slides until the coast is
reached. The time east of Donald is
known a& mountain time and the time
west of Donald as Pacific time. The
Change in the South is made at Kootenay landing.
jNow all this is doubtless very interesting, but what application has it to
Greenwood? Let us see, Greenwood is
much nearer Kootenay Landing than
|t is to the Pacific coast. The ear^h
and the sun arrange things differently

Aid. Caulfield has discovered a remedy. He suggested that the mining,
smelting, commercial and financial
centre of the Boundary should set a
good example to other parts of the
district and make , time not for slaves
but to suit ourselves. At the regular
meeting of the city council Aid. Caulfield brought up the matter and point-
ed^out Jhat by beginning the day an
hour earlier work could be suspended
an hour earlier and leave a reasonable
long evening. The plan met with the
approval of the council and a commit'
tee consisting of Aid. Caulfield, McKenzie and McNeill was appointed to
interview business, mining and smelter

this matter. I

A Noted Horseman's Experience.
Mr. Antoine Wendling, owner of
Deveras 2\\% and proprietor of the
Clifton House, Brockville, says no liniment compares with Nerviline for general use around the stable. For strains,
sprains, swellings, internal pains and
especially for affections of the whirl
bone Nerviline is unequalled. Mr.
Wendling believes Nerviline is indispensable as a horse linimenf; it has
strength, penetrating power and works
thoroughly. Every horse an-i stock
owner should use Nerviline. Sold iii

the Dominion government, a smeltei"
site on the Chuchaw^ha Indian,Reserve adjoining Hedly City. Duncan
Ross, the Liberal candidate in Yale
Cariboo returned from Hedly City last
Saturday and reports that during his
visit there, he arranged on behalf of
the Dominion government for the immediate surrender of 148 acres of the
reserve to ths Daly Company. It is
now some time since Mr. M. K. Rogers
the manager of the company made
application tor 194 acreu of the reserve.
The minister of the Interior felt however that this was more land than was
required for smelting purposes and
the interests of property owners in
Hedley and also other companies who
are likely to develop properties in that
locality_haji_tp^b^ l
Ross arranged with Mr. Rogers to accept a lesser acreage and to give an
undertaking that none of the land
would be used for townsite purposes. The settlement of the difficulty
is satisfactory to the people of Hedley
and the company, and it is now confidently expected that extensive operations will now be resumed both at
the Nickle Plate mine and at Hedley
where the company has already erected large reduction works.

His Lordship, Chief Justice Hunter,
lost no time in getting into motion the
father "ponderous" machinery~~of "the
Supreme Court, sitting as a Court of
Assize, Nisi Prius, Oyer and Terminer
and General Gaol Delivery. Promptly
at eleven o'clock on Thursday last,
the Chief Justice took his seat o:i the
bench, accompanied by his honor,
Judge Leamy as a guest. After the
Grand Jury had been sworn in and had
chosen C. Scott Galloway as their
foreman, His Lordship briefly congratulated them on the absence of serious
crime in a mining community adjacent
to the international boundary line, and
still more briefly instructed them on
their duties with regard to the indictments presented. The Grand Jury
retired and applications were then
heard by the learned Judge.
The Grand Jury were: C. Scott
Galloway (foreman), J. A. Russell, W.
Allison, R.-D. Kerr, J. G. Laing, S. M.
Johnson, T. A. Garland, of Greenwood; J. R. Jackson, Midway; W. W.
Craig, Boundary Falls; J. W. McKinnon, Eholt; and Norman McLellan, W.
J. Cook and J. C. McGregor, Grand
Forks. H. C. Shaw represented the
Crown in the criminal cases and the
other members of the bar in the Boundary were present to represent various
clients. Miss Harris of Rossland was
sworn in as official Court stenographer
while Registrar McMynn, his deputy
Birnie and police officers Dunsmore
and Darraugh were present in their
official capacities.
H. C. Shaw, for H, C.sHanington] of
Grand Forks, applied for a foreclosure
order on behalf of the Standard Loan
Company against H. L. Mclntyre,
Thos. E- Birkbeck and Lionel Birk-
beck, an infant.    Order granted.

When Court resumed at 2,30 the
Giand Jury brought in a true : bill
against Ah Sue but Mr. McLeod, who
defended the accused, asked for-an adjournment to enable witnesses to get
here from Rock Creek. An adjournment was granted until ten o'clock.to-
day. The Grand Jury also found a
true bill against Louis Dubray but as
he failed to appear Mr. Shaw applied
to have bail estreated. Mr. McLeod
pointed out that Mr. Dubray came all
the way from Montana last fall to
stand trial, but no assize court was
held, that he had returned to work in
Montana and that he didn't know
whether the accused had been informed
of this sitting of the Court, in any
case the bail bonds we're irregularly
drawn. The learned Judge said he
would further consider the application
on Saturday morning.
In the civil case of Pastillo vs. ■ Albi
for the amount of S798 for work done,
the learned Judge held that as the
amount was within S1000, it should
have been tried in the County Court
and transferred it to that court, the
defendant to have the right to select
cither the June or the August sitting.
Mr. Shaw for plaintiff and J. R. Brown
for defendant.
An adjournment was then taken until ten o'clock today.
A number of civil cases and the case
against Ah Sue were still to be tried
when court adjourned yesterday afternoon. Some of the civil cases are
lenthy and important an. as both
Monday and Tuesday next are holidays in nil probability it will be late
next week before the docket is cleared.

When Court resumed this morning1   the   Grand Jury made   the  following presentment:  May It Please Your Lordship:  The Grand Jurj- desire to extend to you a cordial welcome on  this, your first visit to Greenwood, and to express our satisfaction at the fact that the Sittings  of the Court are being held in  such a building as we are now in.  We have examined the building  and find that the accommodation  provided for the work to be done,  and the provision made for prisoners, to be ample, and the  whole reflecting much credit on  those in charge for the very efficient manner in which it is kept.  The grounds around the building  are in a very uncompleted state  and we would respectfully suggest that a sum be provided sufficient to complete the ou tside in a  manner corresponding with the  building- and the fact that it is  the official home of your Lordship while in the Boundary  country.  We have examined the school  building1 and find the same in  excellent condition and well fitted  for the work which is being efficiently carried on.  The hospital is undergoing extensive alterations and repairs,  the authorities in charge taking  advantage of the small . number  of patients at present there; the  number is only five, which is a  good index of the ttealthfulness  of the district. These alterations  and repairs when completed will  make the building more suitable  for the care of the sick, and the  Sisters of St. Joseph of Peace express themselves as being satisfied with the arrangement at  present existing between themselves and the Government.  The main thoroughfare or  highway of this section follows  Boundary Creek, from Greenwood  to Midway, and portions of this  road have been improved, and are  now in good condition. But we  beg to draw your Lordship's attention to the section between  Boundary Palls and Mr. R. D.  Kerr's farm. In this two miles  there are no less than six crossings of the Canadian Pacific Railway, jsome of which are of a  dangerous nature, and we would  request that, if the ordinary  grant is insufficient, an amount  to obviate these crossing be recommended.  We would like to draw your  attention also to our proximity to  the International Boundary Line  and the consequent ease with  which criminals may escape to a  foreign country. We would recommend that Provincial Police  Officers be granted maintenance  for their horses, as was the custom a few years ago, so that  fugitives from justice may be  more readily apprehended.  We trust that your Lordship's  stay in the Boundary may be a  pleasant one and that you may  have an opportunity of seeing the  Avonderful mineral resources  which are responsible for the development that justifies us in  calling attention to the requests  that appear iu this presentment.  C. Scott Galloway,  Foreman of Grand Jury,  On behalf of self and fellows.  His Lordship thanked the  Grand Jury for the satisfactory  manner in which they had performed their duties. He appreciated the cordial welcome and  hoped that when he laid down  the wand of office, that it could  be said he had performed his  duties in a manner befitting the  high position with which he had  been honored; He would refer  the matters to the proper authorities and then formally discharged  the Grand Jury.  The trial of Ah Sue was further adjourned this morning.  Mr. McLeod who is defending  the prisoner, raised the point  that the Grand Jury had been  improperly summoned and that  consequently the indictment was  bad. He held that during the  absence of Deputy-sheriff Elkins,  J. G. Birnie served the summons  and that he was not duly authorized to do so. His Lordship gave  H. C. Shaw, the Crown prosecutor, until 2.30 this afternoon to  look up authorities on the point  raised.  On account of the amount of  work to be done here, His Lordship arranged with the solicitors  on both sides in the case of Le-  quime vs. Powers vs. R. A.  Brown, to hear the case at Grand  Porks on Wednesday next. A  large number of witnesses were  present from Grand. Porks and as  the case could not reached until  that date, His Lordship felt that  the public convenience would be  better served by hearing the case  where all the parties interested  and witnesses reside.

Co.'s Properties Among First Located  I IIII.  Will   Again  Be   Developed by   Mr.  Haas and Associated.  The pioneers evidently knew  what they were . doing- when they  locatedi high, grade mines near  Greenwood. It is now 12.or 13  years since the first prospectors  made locations in the Boundary  and in those days high grade  veins were attractive.. Later .on  mining investors wanted large  bodies of low grade copper ore  and the high, grade claims were  overlooked. During the last two  years, after William Fowler demonstrated that the. quickest aud  surest way'of securing dividends  the Times last week he has  bonded the properties on behalf  of himself and associates and has  already Vegun work on the property.  The following description of  some of the claims was published  in the Times in January, 1S1J7,  and should prove interesting at  this juncture: v  On the "D. A." as shown by  the plan, are two shafts, one 20  feet deep and one 12 feet deep,  and a cross-cut 25 feet long bv 12  feet deep, from which ore was  shipped to the smelter at Everett  and gave a return of $440.69 for  8,653 lbs., afterpaying all freight  charges, railway aud smelter,  showing a clear profit of $110 per  ton....  The "G. A. R." has a 20-foot  shaft, sunk on a 2-foot: vein,  heavily mineralized with an intimate mixture of iron and copper  pyrites, galena, blende and silver  glance. The finest pieces of silver wire found in Boundary Creek  were taken from this shaft. Average assays from different places  across the vein gave $8.00 in  gold," 50 ozs. silver;' also $8.00  gold, 150 ozs. silver; and one, the  latest return���$15.05 gold and  196 4-5 ozs. silver per ton. On  the   "Big   L'eclge"   is  a   10-foot  gave, gold $1.50, silver 16 1-4 ozs",;  copper 11.96 per cent., or $40.44  for-all values.  The "Fred. D." was.located in  December, 1895, more as ground  for a basis for mining operations  for other claims than for its present value, although there is little  doubt that the large vein ou the  O. B. runs through it. There is  a small vein of gslena on this  claim.  The "S. F." lies between the  G.A.R. and D.A., in the direction  of the strike of the G.A.R. vein.  The location has been made on a  vein of pyrrhotite.  The "J A.C." has a large iron-  capping running through it from  the Anaconda, at a depth of a  few feet on the latter claim. The  ore carries a considerable ..percentage of copper, and -$10;-in  gold.  When You Need.

As the  par value of Providence stock is SS.00  this will yive a 2 per cent dividend.  f *���  '  f      j. ;  1  GREENWOOD IN, THE . SARLY DAYS.  The above cut.of Greenwood was taken years ago or at the time the B. C. M.  corporated.   The properties of the company are on the hill above, the city.  & ,M. Co.  was in-  itt" the~ Boundary-was-by developing high grade mines, there has  been a brisk demand for properties of- this class and several near  Greenwood are being worked with  gratifying results.  ��� It is now over seven years since  the Boundary Greek Times ventured an opinion that the Boun-  day Creek Mining & Mill iug  Company would become a dividend payer. This statement was  based upon the fact that there  were some splendid showings on  the several properties of the Company and conditions were favorable to the profitable exploitation  of the Company's mines. That  was an honest expression of  opinion on the part of the Times,  but like man)- another honest  opinion in reference to mining  ventures, it did. not bring dividends to the. shareholders in the  Bi C.-M.-&.M,- The Company  passed through sevev.il li.iancial  crises and changes of control  until finally its claims became  the property of the hn.:'.: to satisfy, a judgment.  But in mining the properties  are not. always to blame for disastrous financial conclusions. The  B. C. M. & M. Co's properties are  still as promising as they were  eight years ago and one of the  pioneer mining men, J. C. Haas,  M. E., has decided to give them  another chance. As was stated in  quartz-T-vein,^mineralized_. .with  iron pyrites. This vein h as been  opened up by cross-cuts on the  surface fpr 500 feet. A narrower  vein has been opened up, being  one foot wide, carrying conder-  able copper pyrites, aud runs into  the main ledge as a spur. Average assays gave $33 gold and  1 i-2'ozs. silver, and $49.35 gold,  17 lr2 ozs silver, and 2 per cent,  copper. The '"O.B." has two  distinct, veins; one 25-foot wide  which, from Us .strike and general character, would seem to be  the same vein as that on the Big-  Ledge, although sufficient work  has not been done to make this  conclusive. The second vein has  at present a width of nearly three  feet. Assays have shown values  in gold from $4.00 to $170.53  while a conservative sampling by  Mr. S. S'., Fowler, M.E., gave$20  iii gold.  On the "D. A." is a vein about  20 inches wide, with a pay-streak  of 4 to 12 inches; from this the  8,653 lbs. of ore was shipped to  the smelter, giving $103.15 gold  per ton, silver 74 7-10 ozs., and 2  per cent. lead. On the same property is a larger, vein (quartz)  carrying galena and pyrites, on  which no work has been done.  On the "S. H. B." are two converging veins of copper and iron  pyrites, on  which   work   is  now  �����  being done.  An  average assav  JUST  RECEIVED.

FRIDAY,   MAY 20  1904  THE STRONG AND WEAK.  Conservatives    who   are   still  hopeful   that their party has a  chance to win in the next general  election should visit Ottawa during the session of parliament and  they would soon become convinced that only  by the miraculous  intervention of Providence could  the   once   great   party    become  dominant in this country:     The  first   thing   that   impresses   the  visitor   to   parliament    is    the  strength o,f   the Liberals under  Sir Wilfrid Laurier and the  apparently hopeless weakness of the  Conservatives under Mr. Borden.  One cannot listen to the debates  nor watch,,the proceedings of the  house,    without    becoming   impressed with the remarkable contrast  between   the  two parties.  Sir Wilfrid has  fully recovered  from his illness and is stronger  physically    today   than   at   any  time in recent years; and never  had he a stronger   grip on his  followers. }  The affection for the  leader after seven years of power  is lemarkable.      It is natural to  suppose that   during that   time  there should be some malcontents  but they cannot be found on the  government side  of   the   house.  This' was demonstrated   in the  closing   debate    on   the   Grand  ���Trunk Pacific bill.     During the  long   night   the   speakers   were  backbenchers who were anxious  that  their constituents  through  Hansard should have the benefit  of   their views on this project.  ���The members were surfeited with  opinions   on   this   question   and  were anxious for a division. Only  a bare quorum was present in the  house until  Sir Wilfrid rose  to  close the debate.    Then the seats  were rapidly filled and for three-  quarters of an hour there were  such  scenes as   are seldom witnessed in the House of Commons.  The speaker was no sick man.  It  was the happy, buoyant, eloquent  Sir  Wilfrid   of   the   olden days  when he could rouse his hearers  to the greatest enthusiasm by his  matchless eloquence.    No wonder  his supporters   went   wild with  delight, no wonder that men like  big "Bill" Galliher and equally  big Bill McCreary, whose recent  sudden death is lamented by the  people all over Canada, serious  men like Frank Oliver, reverend  men like Dr. Douglas, solid business men from Ontario, enthusiastic Frenchmen from Quebec  and hardened veterans from the  Maritime provinces should use  their desks for thumping tables  and cheer to the echo the utterances of their leader. Even the  galleries where demonstrations  are vigorously tabooed by the  uniformed officers of the house,  would have applauded if they  dared. The subject matter of the  Premier's speech and his inimitable delivery would have been  sufficient to stir the blood of his  followers but this was not the  chief cause of the remarkable  demonstration. Intentionally or  not the Conservatives had been  exploiting the Premier's illness  for party advantages. "Sir Wilfrid is a doomed1 man" could be  heard in tones sympathetic, it is  true, followed by "there is no  other man who can so successfully lead the Liberal party."  The graceful form, the strong  distinct voice, the subtle sarcasm,  the powerful argument and the  lofty sentiment gave .the direct  lie to this suggestion. The men  behind him were convinced that  here was a man who could lead  the party to victory, here was a  man who had not lost his grip on  the party nor on the people of  Canada and who could again  sweep the country with policy  that means so much in the developing of its natural resources and  the upbuilding of a great Canadian nation. No wonder then  that his followers should go  fairly wild in the exuberance of  their enthusiasm and be responsible for a demonstration such as  is seldom seen in the house.  On the other side, the Conservatives are weak in numbers,  weaker in leadership and still  weaker in debating ability. Mr.  Borden is a nice man but the  party is still under the blighting  influence of the nest of traitors.  There are men on the Conservative side of the house who believe  that they could make better  leaders than Borden and who are  not giving him that cordial support that is so necessary in the  building up of a great party.  The majority of the Conservative  members and possibly Mr. Borden  himself is cursing the ill fortune  that placed them in opposition to  national   projects,   such   as the  to a national project by their  political bedfellows, the friends  and directors of the Canadian  Pacific Rail\i ay, who are in the  house and they realize that their  antagonism is only postponing  the day of their return to power.  The House of Commons reflects  public opinion of the country.  The Liberal government is  stronger today than in 1900 and  its return to power is absolutely  assured.  VACANT SENATORSHIP.  In a few days the Government  will probably announce the appointment of Hewitt Bostock .to  the vacant senatorship. While  a number of good men are applicants for- the position, the Government cannot pass over the  claims of Mr. Bostock. He it  was who first won Yale-Cariboo  for the Liberal party and after  four years of good service he voluntarily retired to private life.  Mr. Bostock was one of the  hardest working members of parliament and never lost an opportunity to advocate the interests of  the large constituency which he  represented. Ingratitude is not  unknown in political life but it  is scarcely possible that faithful  service such as Mr. Bostock gave  the country and the Liberal party  will be rewarded by the appointment of some one else to a position which he has earned and in  which he can continue his good  work for the country and particularly for the interior of British  Columbia.- ----   ^^_ ,^_^ -^^.^  HEDLEY.  The final settlement of the  smelter site difficulty at Hedley  means much for that busy town  and the Similkameen district.  The Daly Reduction Company  has already expended over a million dollars in the development of  the Nickle Plate and adjoining  mines and in the construction of  large reduction works. Now that  the Compauy has secured a good  smelter site adjacent to the town  of Hedley, it will continue extensive operations. The Nickle  Plate mine is easily one of the  richest in the Province and as the  Company.owning the mine has  unlimited capital and a management accustomed to carrying on  mining on a large scale, the outlook for Hedley and the Similkameen district is very bright.  immmMmmmmmmmmmmmmx  THE CANADIAN RANK OF COMMERCE  With Which is Amalgamated  THE BANK OF BRITISH COLUMBIA.

The introduction of partizan party  politics by the McBride government  even in the appointment of license  and police commissioners has created  much trouble for the government and  engendered bitter municipal strife in  several of. the cities of the province.  This it�� particularly true in Phoenix  where five of the aldermen resigned as  a 'protest against the action of the  government in connection with the  administration of police affairs. As  thtfgdverriiherit persists in accepting  ; the advice of a small clique of partizan  ., tories'in P.hoenix, rather than  the ad-  ', vice.'.of '.the great majority of the electors Who, gaYe the government candi-  .date'"loyal . support   in    the   recent  - campaign, in all probability no  council ��� will  be secured and the city will  .^suffer in consequence.  . The circumstances leading up to the  r. present unfortunate state of affairs are  briefly as follows: The Chief of  Police of Phoenix was accused in the  police court of a breach of the peace.  '. The magistrate who is also a police  commissioner, dismissed the case.  The majority of the aldermen who  heard the evidence, insisted on the dismissal of the Chief of Police and the  resignation of. the police magistrate,  /but the police magistrate and the  ; mayor refused to carry out the wishes  of the council. Five out of six of the  aldermen resigned and protested as  strongly as they could to the government but the government listened to  .the representations .of the mayor and  took action in accordance with his  .views.  ������ The aldermen who resigned are  backed up by public opinion in  Phoenix, three of them are Conservatives and supportered Mr. Fraser in  the last campaign. They refuse to  accept office until the wishes of the  people of Phoenix are complied with  ..and as the.r,^ .are, but few,other residents of Phoenix duly qualified for the  office, the present ruinous state of  affairs is likely to .continue until the  government sees fit to meet the wishes  of the public rather than pander to  prejudices of a small political clique.  Had the government followed out the  old policy of accepting the recommendations of trie council in the appointment of police commissioners, it  could have. saved itself much trouble;  the administration of police affairs in  several British Columbia towns would  = ^not^ hav^falien^  places like Phoenix where the members of the council worked as one  family in the interests of their town,  would not be cursed by bitter municipal strife.  >������ #  AT THE PRESENT TIME IS COAL.

It is understood that he has arranged for the immediate construction of the railway from Midway to Vernon. Particulars of the arrangements made are not yet to hand, but more  definite information will be made public upon the return of Mr.  Smailes from the east. The railway will be 115 miles in length  and will open up the rich "West Pork mining district besides connecting Okanagan farming district with the mining district in the  South. The road has beeu subridized by the Provincial government for $4,800 per mile and by the Dominion government ,for approximately 36,400 per mile.  The construction of this road and the Great Northern will  certainly make busy times in the Boundary during the coming  summer.
