 / (���  if  ���siai/i/  .190-1  V  Vol. 8.  GREENWOOD, B. C. FRIDAY, MAY 13, l(>04.  No. 37  W-  \  !������      ��<  i]  ���i   ' '  ���x ���  <W'  The Big^Merger Has Gone Througlv'Vlnvolves The Cream of Boundary's Big Mines^'The New  " ;C^ Her Golden Days of Old to Come Again,  There is a general air of cheerfulness "about Greenwood and  Boundary Palls these days since  the arrival in town of H. C. Pemberton, representing the Montreal  and Boston Consolidated Mining  and Smelting Company. It has  been generally known "for ^ some  time that efforts have beeii made"  (with reported success) to effect a  merger of mining interests here;  that considering 'the, circumstances and the smelting qualities;  of the various ores of the mines  involved,; wotild 'be a'particularly  su\��able cbmbination, )but while  ,thrte...has,b,eeni.jmuch.:;speculation  regarding the deal, nothing of a  Jack Pot in Wellington camp,  and the' properties of" the Dominion Copper Company in Phoenix.  You may say that the smelter at  Boundary Palls will blow in just  as soon as we can land ore at the  smelter. The various mines included in this deal will immediately be opened up, and the work  of un watering the Phoenix properties will begin in a few days.  Arrangements have been made  for the,, erection of the third furnace at the Boundary Falls"  smelter the installation of a  fourth furnace, as well as the  erection of. a, converter plant, at  an early date.     We   expect   to  Pemberton says in a shape that  will admit of almost immediate  shipments, all being equipped  with good machinery and sufficiently developed to admit of  large numbers of men being employed. It is expected that the  mining operations in all the  various mines will be under the  direction of a, general superintendent on the same lines as the  Granby is now conducted.  As far as values are concerned  the properties^ included in the deal  represent the pick of the low  grade mines- of the Boundary  country, the ores of the Brooklyn  and Stemwinder as well as the  railroading, but in miningaffairs  they evidently are loath to carry  things to their logical conclusion. Under different circumstances these Phoenix properties  would have been supplying a  smelter by themselves long ago,  instead of which they have been  lying idle. General satisfaction  is expressed that the management of these mines have passed  into other hands, and that they  will take tlieir place among the  shippers at an early date.  The smelter at Boundary Falls  as it stands at present is capable  of treating in tbe region of four  thousand five hundred tons of ore  at Boundary Falls and the operating of the different mines that  will ship to that point, a large  amount of capital will be expended in improvements that will be  necessary to the successful working of their, properties. The  installing of two more furnaces  at the smelter along with the  construction of the converter  plent will necessarily give employment to a considerable number of skilled workmen. It is  also rumored that a branch line  will be constructed from the  Mother Lode spur up to the  Morrison mine, so that the ore  from that property can be handled  ( ��� -, THE   BOUNDARY .FALLS   SMELTER.  The above illustration of the Boundary Falls Smelter was taken especially for The Times in 1902 Since the above was taken considerable improvements have been made to the smelter. The second furnace has been added, doubling the capacity of the smelter to what  it Was. Arrangements are now being made for the installiation of two more furnaces as soon as they can be built and delivered ai the  works. This is the most conveniently constructed smelter in the Boandarv, the handling of the ore after its arrival at the smelter ,s  practically done away with. No doubt as soon as the new company gets everything in smooth running order its capacity will be greater  than any smelting plant in the Boundary country.  reliable',nature has reached the  public, and the announcement by  Mr. Pemberton that the entire  deal in which; he played so conspicuous a part, has been con-  sumated,. w;ill M received with  unbounded-'; satisfaction by the  entire Boundary country.  Interviewed by a Times representative Mr. Pemberton remarked:-^- "Yes, it is true we have  succeeded in effecting a merger of  the' interests mentioned. Our  properties now, in addition to the  Sunsetv include the Morrison in  the Deadwood camp, a three-  quarter interest in the Emma in  Summit camp, tbe Athelstan and  have the smelter at Boundary  Falls running, full blast before  the end of the present month."  On being asked as. to who would  superintend the smelting operations Mr. Pemberton replied "I  am at present unable to say. I  am leaving this week for Spokane  to meet various metallurgists  whom we have in view, and I am  at present unable to say. exactly  whom it will be. But whoever  it may be he will be at the  smelter in a very short time."  This is perhaps the most welcome news that has reached  Greenwood for some years. The  mines  in question  are  as  Mr,  Athelstan, Jack Pot and Emma  running higher in general values  than either the Granby or Mother  Lode properties. Not the least  satisfactory part of the whole  business is the fact that the  Brooklyn and Stemwinder mines  in Phoenix will soon be in operation. These properties have ten  thousand tons of ore on the dump  ready for shipment and immense  bodies of ore blocked out ready for  stoping, but for some reason they  have not been worked for years.  Messrs. McKenzie & Mann whom  it is understood, previous to this  last deal, owned the controlling  interest, may be  wbilwinds  on  weekly; with the proposed improvements this amount will be  easily doubled. The total weekly  shipments from the Boundary  country, when the mines involved  in this deal are in operation, will  aggregate in the region of  twenty-five thousand tons. From  present appearances it looks as if  Boundary shipments for the year  1904 will come pretty close to the  million ton mark, and that the  era of piosperity so long and  ardently hoped for is abcut to  dawn on this camp.  In addition to the improved  business conditions that will result from the resumption of work  more eas'ly and cheaply than is  at present possible. W. P. Tierney, who is engaged in the construction of a long siding for  the C.P.R. at Eholt, was in town  Tuesday and it is said his visit  here was in connection with the  proposed work. All told, the  prospects for the future of this  locality were never brighter and  everything points to this year as  a banner one in the development  and progress of the Boundary  country.

B. Holmes, says that  a trip across the Atlantic and the  continent at the present time is  not much of a pleasure on account  of the vast numbers of immigrants seeking new homes in  Canada. Every boat is crowded  far beyond their proper carrying  capacity and the trains on the  eastern end of the C.P.R. are so  packed that anything beyo'nd sitting room is out of the question.  On the way across the Atlantic  three large steamers, each crowded'with immigrants, were nearly  always in sight of one another,  and passage by any of the Allan  line boats is already booked three  months ahead. Mr.. Kennedy  who will be associated with F. B.  Holmes in business here is favorably impressed with what he has  seen of this district and is more  than likely to become a permanent resident here.  der." There are a number of civil  cases down for hearing, but it is  unlikely that any of them will be  very protracted, and it is very  probable that a couple of days  will dispose of the entire dochct.  ...���x-��:��h��������X'm:'m^  Boundary Ore Shipments.  Fort Steele's Loss  for  been  The government offices  South-east Kootenay have  ordered moved from Fort Steele  to Cranbrook, and the date set  when the order shall be carried  into effect. This matter has beeu  repeatedly urged upon the government, but for some reason it  has been allowed to stand until  now. Since it became clear that  the railway would not touch Fort  Steele there has never been anjr  reason why.the offices should be  retained there. It is eight or ten  miles from the nearest railroad  and entirely off the line of  travel. The 16th of the present  month will see the whole staff  comfortably installed in their  Cranbrook offices, and while the  loss of the offices is a bad blow  for Fort. Steele, it is something  that exisiting circumstances have  rendered unavoidable.  *-M>0-000-0<K>CK>0-0 OOOO OOOOO OOOO  l|j LOCAL   EXTRACT jj  OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO  J. C. Haas, M.

His  work in this connection was so satisfactory that he was made chief engineer of construction with headquarters iu Montreal.

J. P. Myers Gray,  city solicitor, was present on behalf of  the the city of Greenwood while J. P.  McLeod was retained to look after the  interests of the Anaconda people who  oppose the scheme, The water rights,  of the creek were first staked by J. W.  Lind as far back as 1896, claiming  three . hundred inches of water for  domestic and agricultural purposes.  The city solicitor's contention is that  the record obtained by Lind is void, as  the requirements of the act relating to  water rights have not been observed.  On these grounds the water rights  were again staked by the city of  Greenwood on March 8th, 1904, in  order to secure a larger and better  water supply, the amount asked for  being fifty inches. J. P. McLeod, on  behalf of Anaconda, produced- witnesses to prove that this meant, out  side of the freshets in spring time,  practically all the water that was iu  the creek, and that if Greenwood succeeded in its endeavors to secure Lind  creek it was cutting Anaconda entirely  out of its water supply. During the  hearing it was learned from the evidence of the Mayor and city engineer,  that the cost of bringing Liud creek  into use in Greenwood would amount  to about twelve thousand dollars,  while the cost of obtaining the proposed supply from Boundary or Eholt  creeks would be iu the neighborhood  of $50,000. The commissioner instructed counsels to submit written arguments on the matter to him at Vernon,  which will be forwarded to the office of  the chief commissioner of Victoria,  along with any recommendation which  he might make. It is expected that  the water question as far as Lind  creek is concerned will be permanently  settled one way or the other inside-of  three weeks, as the decision of the  chief commissioner will likely be considered final.  R. C. Campbell Johnston, the -well  known mining engineer and metallurgist, with Mrs1. Johnston are staying at the Imperial. This is not Mr.  Johnston's first visit to the Boundary  as he was here some years ago at  various times as consulting engineer  for companies purchasing big copper  properties iu the Boundary. In this  capacity he inspected the properties in  Phoenix now comprising the Dominion  Copper Company's group, for Messrs.  McKenzie and Mann, and it is generally supposed he is here in their interest at present in-connection with the  transfer of -their' property to the big  new company, the Montreal and Bos  ton Consolidated. During the few  days he has been in town he has taken  the opportunity to familiarize himself  with the high grade properties of  Greenwood and to use his own expression they turned out to be "eye  openers" to him.  Times in the Boundary have been  somewhat quiet since the shut down of  the Boundary Falls smelter and some  of the mines whose products were  treated there. This however does not  disturb Mr. Johnston's ideas regarding  the mining future of this locality. It  is, he declares,- "only a matter of time  and a very short time until all this will'  be changed.    Outside capital is begin  ning to realize lhat mining in B. C, is  a good investment. The continued  satisfactory results from-'the L'e Roi,  Tyee, Granby and other big properties  is reviving interest in the bigmineB'of  British Columbia, while the marvellous  showing made by the Providence and  Elkhorn and other high grade1 properties in Greenwood is bound to atttact  capital to other adjacent high grade  claims." While this perhaps may be  the opinion of the most of us, it is particularly gratifying to hear such expressions of confidence in: the' district  from one whose experience and knowledge of the mining business qualifies  him as an authority on the subject.  The meeting of the city council on  Monday night was largely taken up  with the final discussion of the new  by-law relating to liquor licenses. The  adoption of the by-law was deferred  for a week to allow the hotel keepers  to raise such objections and suggest  such improvements as the interests of  their business demanded, however no  serious objections were raised, except  on the point of securing the signatures  of adjacent property holders. It was  pointed out that should the time prove  not sufficient to enable any of them to  secure these signatures, a permit can  be issued to admit of their business  being carried on until the necessary  number have been secured. The bylaw was therefor on  motion of Alder  man Caulfield, "reconsidered, adopted  and finally passed.  This matter has come up in the  council at various times during the  last two or three years* but action was  always deferred iu hopes that a time  would arrive when any rearrangement  of hotel premises necessitited by the  by-law would be less of hardship on  hotelmen than is at present the case.  Under the by-law adopted Monday  night little change will be necessary  and the council feel'that the new law-  will be more acceptable to hotelmen  generally than the old one.  Permission was granted the Sisters  Hospital to install a system of sceptic  tank's in connection with that institution.  This system of handling sewerage  was tried largely as an experiment,  but in every case they have been reported to the council ' as being a  thorough success.  J. McDougall wrote the council regarding damage done to his-road as a  result of an overflow from Lind creek,  due to a: small damn erected there by  the city engineer while testing the  amount of water in the [creek.

Lovell Company, a retail book  and stationery firm, doing business in  Toronto, drifted into Greenwood and  proceeded to canvas the different city  firms for job work and for orders that  can readily te supplied by the local  book and stationery firms, that pay  taxes and a license for the privilege of  conducting business here. After visiting the the offices of 'he B. C. Copper  Company, who make a specialty of  sending outside for everything from a  billhead up, the gentleman made bold  enough to invade Copper street and indulge in a house to house canvas, even  going so far as to solicit his worship  the Mayor, iu his zeal to secure orders  for his house. The local book firms,  Messrs. Smith & McRae and Coles &  Frith, however, "got next"to the  gentleman's game, wilh the result that  city clerk Taylor interviewed him and  made a demand for the license fee of  twenty-five dollars which is the  amount mentioned in the by-law relating to pedlars and solicitors of outside  firms. This being refused, he was  brought before police magistrate Hal-  let where he admitted having solicited  orders but pleaded that he did not  know of the existence of any such law,  which is a-likely story seeing that such  a by-law exists in' every incorporated  town west of Winnipeg. Evidently  tke magistrate was greatly impressed  with the plea, for in spite of the fact  that the accused admitted having  tate'en orders, the "judge" dismissed  the whole thing and the culprit escaped scot free. The local firms here are  indignant over the matter and with  I small wonder. What is the u.se of a law  ' If His unenforced? Where is the justice  in compelling citizens to pay a license  to do business, and practically throw  the town open to o.itside competitors  from the east who pay nothing?' Considering the circumstances the action  of the police magistrate in this case-is  unjustifiable from any point of view.  It is well known that there are many  citizens here who prefer purchasing goods from eastern-establishments  and to this system the police magistrate may possibly be partial, but any  sympathy he may have for the cheap  Toronto houses of the T. Eaton stamp,  should not interfere vilh the administration of the laws as he finds them on  the statute book. Local firms doing  business here have repeatedly tried to  ;atch travellers of this stamp, and the  extraordinary actio i of the police  magistrate in refusing to carry out the  provisions of the act-in the case men*  tioned has left them wondering just  where they are at, , Perhaps the  magistrate can explain.  Perilous Position ** JSn Jlpology  William Hall, a miner working in  the Granby mines at Phoenix, had an  experience last week that he is unlikely to forget for some time lo come  It appears that the ore iu No. 6 shute  had blocked somewhere near the top  and although drawn away from the  bottom, on top it presented the appearance of being full. While walking  across this, Hall who was unconscious  of the condition of affairs, broke  through the ore which was blocked in  mouth of the shut; and went down  and was covered over with tons of ore  on all sides.   It took the united efforts  of every man that could get a chance  to work over twenty hours to dig him  out, Superintendent Williams himself  directing the efforts and never leaving  until the man was rescued and taken  to the hospital. Strange to relate it  was fottnd that no bones were broken  and beyond a badly bruised leg and  some scratches, was not seriously injured Considering the great distance  he fell and the amount of ore that  crashed down on top of him his escape  was perfectly marvellous. The injured man is doing well aud will soon be  able to return lo work again.

Tlie  comruissioh plank oi the Republican party, has been dropped, and  an able-conscientious executive  retired to private life. The entire ticket selected by the Republicans can be depended upon to  further the interests of the railroads, that is, unless the action  of the convention is repudiated  by the rank and file who may  desert the ranks in such numbers  as to land the Democrats iu command of state offices. This is a  not unlikely result as it is hardly  possible that the Washington  electors will acquiesce in this  invasion of polical affairs by the  railroad interests.  .THE. LUMBER DUTY.  There is a growing- impression  that  a recreation ground should  ' be provided  for  the 3'oung   and  rising generation of. Greenwood  by the city council.     The Greenwood base ball club took the matter   up, . and   after   considerable  trouble was able to secure from  the owners of the lots likely to be  embraced   in   such   grounds,    a  quotation for the use of the pro-:  perty for five years on a lease.   It  ' is needless  to point out that auy  arrangement of this nature will  have to be handled by the city or  some responsible parties, as it is  " unlikely' th at" theproperty owners  "' will..;enter into any arrangement  '.wi'tfi tiie-tlub no.-matter how sincere their intentions may be.  The dity could readily procure  these grounds, enclose them with  a fence and lease them to the  club for a stated amount, or for  a percentage of the season's returns. It is more than likely the  imatter will be brought to their  attention at an ' early date, and  we sincerely trust the council will  give it favorable consideration.  through the combine that for  years regulated the lumber business in Manitoba and the Northwest Territories, and it is no  wonder, therefor, that they  strenuously object to a return of  the conditions uuder which these  combinations were successfully  carried on.  At the same time it seems  hardly fair to the lumbermen of  B. C. to refuse aid to them in a  trying time. They rightly point  out that other industries enjoy a  certain amount of protection and  why not them? It seems, that  since both the consumer and the  manufacturer are agreed as to the  present prices, that it could be  possible to arrange with the government for the imposition of a  tariff on lumber which could be  immediately -suspended, should  any advantage be taken of such,  to increase the price to the consumer.  :.���.,_.,,,...  In connection with the explanation given by the coast members  in the House as to why lumber  men of B. C. are unable to compete with American producers,  there is one item that should  prove interesting to the apostles  of high tariff. The lumber men  declare that one reason is "that  they have to pay a high dirt}' on  the machinery required to operate  their mills." And this after  nearly a generation of high tariff.  Since 1878 all sawmill machinery  coming into Canada has been  heavily taxed in order to foster  the manufacture of such machinery at home, and yet iu spite of  this, it is apparently still necessary to go to the United States  to obtain the proper furnishings  for a lumber mill. It seems to  us that the proper course under  the circumstances would be to  entirely remove the duty on lumber machinery as well as on lumber itself and allow the people  the benefit of the competition  that would inevitably follow.  fflgmmim^  CP*  CP*  CP*  CP*  <f*  CP*\  CP*\  CP*  <��*  CP*  <p*  CP*  CP*  CP*\  e<  CP*  CP*  CP*  CP*  CP*  cp*  ��� ���  ontreal.

Both geutlemen  affirm that it is necessary, if the  lumber industry is to exist at all  here, to impose a duty of 25 per  cent, in-order to head off American shipments and retain the  Northwest market for the Canadian output. They point out  that the imposition of a. 25 per  cent, duty "will in no wise affect  the current. prices. What the  wholesale lumbermen want is a  market.

THE I  for and great pressure is being  brought to bear upon the government .to accede to their request.  Ou the other hand the citizens of  the vast prairie strenuously object to any duty being levied on  lumber, fearing that as a result  the price would immediately advance in proportion to the duty  imposed.  It must be admitted that the  Northwest people have good  grounds for their fears. There  are a few individuals who will  not use a cinche when they have  it, aud it is more than likely, that  in time, attempts will be made to  raise the price of lumber should  the duty be imposed.

The dance was greatly  enjoyed by all and it was. well into  morning before the crowd separated.  The Boundary. Club opened Satur-;  dav night,with Joe Lanping in charge.  The club's premises are in the Pacific  block; occupying what was formerly  the drug store of Craig Co., aa well as  the old dining room of the Pacific  hotel, and the small private rooms that  were also used for dining purposes.

The deal was arranged by the  official liquidator Matson and involves  about one and a half million dollars.  -The transaction is remark able for the,  liberal commissions allpwed Mr. Mat-  son for his efforts in arranging the  deal. In addition to a straight commission of ten per cent amounting to  $150,000, he has been appointed resident director of the new company and  also receives a big commission from  Messrs. Breen and Bellinger for the  sale of their smelter. While there was  strong opposition among some of the  creditors to accepting the English  company's offer, it is not likely that  the matter will be carried further, and  it is reported that work will be resumed on the big property immediately on  receipt of the news thsit the courts  have approved the arrangements which  the creditors have made.

Speaking- to the students at  Victoria college, Toronto, recently chancellor Burwash referred to  the pivotal position that Canada  now occupies in the drawing together of the east and west.  The chancellor said that Cauada was the highway between  Europe and Asia and standing  between two great world forces  the dominion would liave to bear  the brunt, whether iu war, or  commerce, or civilization and  truth, to other lands.  We have not as yet taken advantage of the unique position  we occupy as the pathway and  half way house between Europe  aud Asia, but it is gratifying to  know that we are at the beginning of a new day. The figures  of tlie distance between Liverpool  aud Yokohama across Canada  liave been given before, but they  are well worth repeating- at the  present   moment,   when   parlia  ment  is engaged  in  giving   its  MINERAL ACT-  Certificate of improvements-  ���    v' ��� ������������   : '���-'*   '  :'     NOTICE   -  "Alameda" mineral claim,situate in the Green  wood   mining  division   of  Yale  District.

Bartlett, Free  Miners' "Certificate" No; BS0373,; and Helen H.-  ���Bartlett, Frcr Miners' Certificate intend sixty  days tj-oni thedate hereof, to apply to the  ;Mi'uing Recorder for aCertificate of Improvements, for the purpose of obtaining a Crown  Grant ofthe above claim.  And further: take notice that action,'undei  .section 37, must be commenced before the issuance of such Certiiicate of Improvements.  Dated this 14th dnv of Maicli. 190-1.  ,....--��� ...    - I. H. Hallett.  sanction to a measure which will  transmute a dream into reality:  Liverpool to St. John, N.B... ?980  St. John to Quebec    360  Liverpool to Quebec,...   2634  Quebec to Pacific Coast 2280  SanFrancisco to Yokohama. 4538  The distance by United  States  routes are as follows:  Liverpool to New York 3079  New York to San Francisco. 2550  SanFrancisco to Yokohama. 4536  We thus have by way of St.  John a distance from Liverpool  to Yokohama of 8,820 miles, as  compared with 10,165 by way of  New York. The ocean distances  are those given in the Century  Atlas, and there is additional information given there that the  sailing time from Vancouver to  Yokohama is fourteen days and  from San Francisco to Yokohama  sixteen days. This is the advantage that we gain from our  northerly position on the globe.  The.direct line from San Francisco to Yokohama would involve  a journey of 4,791 miles. By  sailing- northwesterly to the 4Sth  parallel     the     San     Francisco  steamers cut 255 miles from  the  distance.    Starting from a more  northly port,  vessels from Canadian harbors save a still greater  distance.    An  advantage  which  will be a considerable one is the  road Cauada is about to construct  will be built with the consciousness that it is to be one of the  greatest highways between east  aud west.     Canada's new transcontinental railway will have two  great purposes which are not only  inconsistent,    but    are,    indeed,  complementary to each other.    It  will, as has been said, be the rail  section between the west and the  awakening1 east, and it will also  double the habitable portion  of  the dominion. As it goes through  an unsettled land it will be able  to choose to a great extent the  most    direct    routes,    the    best  grades, the easiest curves.   From  ocean to ocean it will under one  management���indeed, there will  be   a   certainty   that   from   the  shores of Britain to the shores of  Japan, Asia, travellers and goods  will be under   the  care   of   one  great company.     Altogether our  new   railway   should   be   in  an  unapproachable position to compete for the vast commerce  that  is already setting in a great current westerly and easterly.  Some may say, what of the  Panama canal? Much of the  traffic between the Occident and  the orient will go by Panama.  But Panama is longer than the  Canadian route by 3,500 miles.  Passengers or goods in a hurry  (and the world is in a hurry these  days) will'prefer the quicker despatch across the dominion of  Canada.

Cariboo,  died at his residence, Melville street,  Vancouver, last week, Mrs. Reid and  his sous being present at the end. Last  autumn the Senator was in a runaway  accident in Cariboo, in which he was  seriously injured, and from Ihe effects  of which he never really recovered.  He left for Ottawa before the opening  of Parliament to attend to his legislative duties, but was taken seriously ill  soon after his arrival at the capital.  He was brought back to Vancouver,  where he had made his home for sptne  years past, in the hope that the mild  climate of the coast would assist his  recovery, and. he not only stood the  journey well, but also showed a considerable improvement in health, and it  was hoped .would recover. .-���Unfortunately, however, he-suffered, a relapse  and the end was somewhat sudden, as,  while he was very;ill Tuesday after.  noon, it was not thought he would pass  away so soon; in'fact, there was hopes  that he might rally. These hopes were  disappointed, however, and he passed  away at 8 o'clock that night. His  death leaves a vacancy in the Senate  for which there are already various  aspirants, but it is more than likely  that Hewit Bostock will receive the  appointment. Delegations have interviewed Mr. Bostock requesting him to  accept the position and he has been  endorsed by the different Liberal Associations throughout the whole interior  of B. C. Under the circumstances he  is the only man for the position and it  is expected his appointment will soo.n  be announced.

Mr. McKee pastor of the Presbyterian church,  Greenwood, received Ihe sad intelligence Monday of the death of her  mother, Mrs. McKechnie, at Ingle-  wood, Ontario, last week. Mrs. McKechnie has long been a sufferer from  rheumatism (which was the immediate  cause of her death) and for several years  was confined to her room and her death  was not unexpected. The sympathy of  the community will go out to Mrs. McKee in her sad bereavement.  Duncan Ross the Liberal standard  bearer for Yale-Cariboo constituency,  returned from Ottawa Saturday. He  was joined by Mrs. Ross at Spokane  who accompanied him home, both  looking the better for their outing.  While in Ottawa the coming member  for Yale interested himself in several  matters pertaining to the constituency  chief of which was the settlement of  the smelter site question at Hedley.  This matter, involving a transfer to  the mining company of some lands belonging to the Indian reserve, has been  the cause of considerable discussion by  the local press, which feared the possibility of the erection of the smelter  works at a point over the line as was  the case with the Le Roi plant at  Northport. It is reported that the  matter has been arranged to the satisfaction of all parlies concerned, and it  is more than likely that the present  summer will see the erection of a  smelting plant in the Similkameen  that will be second to none in British  Columbia.  At a meeting of the Board of School  Trustees held on Saturday evening, in  addition to the usual routine business  transacted, considerable attention was  giveu to schemes that   are designed to  Meets every Wednesday evening  at 8:00 in the K. of P.

Before offering you this soap, we gave  it a thorough trial, along with a lot of  other medicinal soaps, and it is our  firm conviction that it is the best soap  for  general  toilet  use  on the market,  and especially adapted to the hard waters  ofthe Boundary.

In this the  trustees receive the hearty cooperation of the teachers who are enthusiastic in any work that tends to promote  the welfare of the numerous youngsters  under their charge. Among other  things it was decided to open a library  in the school to be stocked with books  suitable for children of different ages.  Cases for these have been ordered  and will be placed at an early date in'  the different rooms. It is not intended  to use any of the general school funds  for this purpose, as it is felt in a work  of this kind, sufficient can be secured  by voluntary subscription either in  books or in money. The object is a  worthy one and should be given the  heartiest support by citizens generally.  George McKenzie and Eugene Sullivan of Westbridge and H. B. Thone of  Midway start on Saturday for the  Peace River country via Quenelle.  Their objective point is the head  waters of the Peace river and-to there  they will take the shortest route.  They leave Westbridge on horses, pass  through Beaverdell, and cross the summit to Vernon; from there they follow  the wagon roads that will lead them to  the Cariboo trunk road, following it to  Quenelle. It is the intention of the  trio to purchase their supplies at the  point nearest to their destination so as  to avoid a long pack. All three are  experienced mountaineers that are not  afraid of the rough knocks incidental  to pioneering, and they will thoroughly  prospect the country adjacent to the  upper waters of the Peace river for  mineral as well as for timber and  farming land before making any permanent location.  Last fall while installing the poles  for the Cascade Light and Powei  Company, a gang of men uncovered a  small lead of galena ore on the Mavis  mineral claim belonging to E. T.  Wickwire, over which the right of way  of the power line passes. The other  day Mr. Wickwire gave a bond on this  property to Mike Kane and associates  for $11,000, the payments of which will  cover two years. The first payment is  to be made at the end of six months  and balance in twelve and twenty-  four months respectively. The bonders  have the privilege of shipping ore up  to any amount they can mine upon the  payment of ten percent royalty and in  every way the terms of the bond ;are  such that the parties taking hold of the  property will be well able to meet their  obligations���out-of;���the^ore, siiould-the  claim turn out as expected. 'Thi sale  was" the direct result of the accidental  uncovering of this lead by the Power  Company's men. Assays taken by Mr.  Kane ran as high as ninety-nine dollars in gold and silver, and the boys  are satisfied they have got a "good  thing." There is no reason why it  should not be, as its locality is favourable, lying as it does midway between  the E. P. U. and Swylark. A gang of  men will be at work in a few days on  the property and prospecting and development carried on in a systematic  manner.  DR. MATHISON  DENTIST  Niulen-Floocl Hlock, Greenwood, ]t, C.
