A: brief telegram announcing the  death of King Edward was received  in this city on Friday evening, at 7  p. m., and the tolling of the bell at  the city hall was a sad and solemn intimation to our citizens of the lamentable event.  Although of late, subject to frequent spells of illness, it was far from  the thoughts of any that his demise  was to follow so quickly. The whole  civilized world was shocked wheiuhe  tidings that the great and good King  Edward was no more.  His death occurred at Buckingham  palace at 11:45 on the evening of  May 5, in thepresence of his family  and relations..  Immediately upon his demise his  son, George V, was called to the  throne, which will be duly ratified and  proclaimed. "His first official act was  to* inform the nation of the death of  his father, the king. The last words  of our loved king, when returning  consciousness permitted, were:  " Well, it is all over, but I think I  have done my duty." Which, when  said, he passed into the last long sleep.  PASSED RESOLUTIONS  m     . . ������.  geAt the regular meeting of the  pty council, on Monday evening,  the following, resolutions, were  passed: -  Ttiat out of respect to our late  King -Edward, we adjourn till  Monday, May 16th.  That the municipal, council of  the city of Greenwood, in meeting assembled,  Resolve, That we express our  profound sorrow at- the death of  our Sovereign Lord, King. Edward VII, and that we extend,  through the . Lieutenant-Governor, to the royal family, our  sincere sympathy in' their bereavement and the nation's loss;  and be it further,  Resolved, That the mayor he  authorized to declare Friday, the  20th day of May, a day of mourning, requesting all business houses  to close from at least 12 o'clock  noon to 6 o'clock p. m., and to  drape their premises.  The above resolutions were  passed unanimously.  AUTOMOBILE ROAD  H  ������.tv>  ;*SB*t^r  ax-*- - ���  fitt?:  '"*  BURNS & CO.  s^  Wholesale and Retail Dealers in  resh Meats  loultry and Game  >er Street, Greenwood, B. C.  There are ten autos on the Cariboo road, making the trip from  Ashcroft to Soda Creek at the  rate of twenty miles and hour.  They are filled with passenger  every trip, and the B. C. Express  company has every available  horse on the road pressed into  service to try to cope with the increasing travel northward. The  bulk of the passengers are Americans bound for Port George and  the northern part of Cariboo district. It was also noted that  some of those going into that section are not properily equiped for  the life that lies before them  there, and those with limited capital are bound to sutler from the  hardships to which they will be  exposed.  MATERIAL SCARCE  This'new movement for Mothers'  Day is in itself more significant tU��<i  any monument, and, by associating itself with flowers, gives a peculiar  sweetness and pleasing suggestion to  the memories of the day. No matter  how world-weary or troubled the  woman or man may be, the very  thought of the old home and the  childhood associations will bring refreshment and healing. Perhaps it  was a farmhouse on the wide acres of  a Canadian homestead where was  room and to spare for a band of merry  youngfers. There was such a fine  old orchard, such an alluring creek  for small feet to wade in, such a  glorious hayloft for a romp on u holiday! But, best of all, was the mother's face smiling from the kitchen  doorway as the tired small persons  came home from school or play.  What a fine old kitchen it was, with  its wide Hags and savory smells!  There were all manner of good things,  spiced and preserved, and stored away,  and from the old stove came the appetizing whiff which told of baked  apples or hot biscuits for tea. The  home scene comes back, borne of the  scent of a white carnation which,  strangely enough, is mingled with  other perfumes���the fragrance of apple blossoms in therlarge orchards, the  lilacs in the old lane, and the heavy  scent of the flowers which rested on  the coffin. Wherever the old home  may have been, it was a fairy spot and  the modern world shows not its like  to weary hearts. There are many  houses along life's road, but there is  only one old home���and its queen  was the mother, whose love has followed her children all around the  world. There is the magic in the  white carnation.  TEN YEARS AGO  (From Boundary Creek Times of May 13, 1900)  An opening dance was given at  the Windsor Hotel.  Fred Oliver is expected to arrive in town this afternoon.    .  Mr. Jas. Sutherland who has  been ailing for some time is reported better.  The Montreal Monetary Times,  commenting upon the recent gift to  Hon. W. S. Fielding, says that the  office of finance  minister  in such a  It- is appalling the frightful ioss of  human life almost daily occurring,  and apparently with no means of its  amelioration. . Our exchanges   rarely  country as  Canada  exacts  from the t have an issue without the  chronicling  man performance of the highest professional principles. Exposed to  temptations, he must be blind to invitations to become wealthy at the expense of business morality. Handling the purse-strings of a nation, he  must see that only legitimate expenditures and commissions wear those  cords. A weak, vascillating, unscrupulous minister could, with little effort,  wreck the credit of the country in less  than six months. A strong, determined man may create, maintain and  uphold a nation's credit in the world's  money market. Hon. W. S. Fielding, who has made thirteen budget  speeches in the Dominion house, as  its finance minister, is the last to claim  that the present government is entirely  responsible for Canada's growing  prosperity or its excellent credit abrord.  On the other hand, our chancellor of  the exchequer has proved himself a  capable minister and keen financier.  Without the spheres where partisanship acts as smoked glass on virtues,  adherents of the government and of  the opposition causes are unanimous  in their high opinion. The only regret, perhaps, is that the subscription  to such a well-deserved testimonial  was not open to contributions from  the. average citizen, who has a high  regaidfor the recipient.  THE FOOTNOTE  It is related that Sir R, Baden-  Powell became a soldier almost  by chance. His godfather, the  late Dr. Jowett, intended him to  take a^course in Oxford University, but the youth, at the close of  his training in the Charter-house  went up to an army examination  "just for fnn," and he surprised  himself and all his friends by  coming out second on a list of  over seven hundred candidates.  He was promptly informed that  he would get a commission, and  that it would be antedated two  years in consideration of his brilliant" achievement.  Tbe excavation work for the  new flume down the centre of  Greenwood street has been started.  H. J. McQuaid, one of the  owners of the Dayton in Camp  MeKinney, made a flying trip to  his properly yesterday.  The Jencke's machine company, through their representative, R. P. Williams, has secured  a contract from the Knob Hill  and Old Ironsides, for a duplex  compound compressor.  Winnipeg is suffering from the  greatest famine in building material in the past six years. Com-,  mon brick has advanced $4 a  thousand, timber and dimension  lumber are $2 higher than a week  ago, and shingles are selling for  almost whatever dealers dare to  ask. Cement is still selling at  75 cents a barrell over last year's  price, and the supply is very  short. Good common brick is  practically cleaned out, and all  the local brick yards have disposed of their supplies. Contractors  are estimating a hold-up of at  least three weeks on big jobs.  Thos. Jefferson was the father  of the American patent system.  At a special meeting of the  Board ol Trade, CHve Pringle  and Mr. Finacune of the Bank of  Montreal, were elected delegates  to represent Greenwood at the  Chambers of Commerce. London,  England.  FISH STORIES  Some fair catches have been  made around Boundary Creek recently, with Black Gnat, March  Brown and the Professor, but as  there is every reason to expect  changed conditions in the state  of the streams we would strongly  recommenrFfour anglers to get  some Royal Coachmen in addition  to those mentioned. Any fishermen who have any true fishing  stories to relate are cordially invited to "drop a line," to this  office, and not only will we put  them on the "hook" but will  'serve" them to our readers.

From Ottawa comes the intelligence  of a powder magazine exploding near  Hull, causing the death of eight or  ten persons. A baseball game in  progress near the scene, provided  many victims and the appearance" of  the field after the explosion was of  the nature of a battlefield. Headless,  armless and legless bodies were lying  around among scores of unconscious  forms. Rideau Hall, two miles away,  was badly shattered, but no lives were  lost.  OPPOSES FRANCHISE  The Local Council of Women  at Hamilton, Ont., has instructed  its delegates to the National  Council, which meets at Halifax  next month, to vote against the  proposition to extend the ballot to  women.  BLAMES THE COMET  An insane man at Oroville, O.,  refuses to pay his grocery bill,  claiming that the world is coming to an end.  Dave Tye, a trapper who left  Quesnel Forks on December 17  last for Hemlock creek, near  Clearwater, was found frozen in  his boat at Cariboo island on  April 24. He had apparently  perished the first night after leaving Quesnel dam.  A full representative meeting of the  stockholders of the .Boundary Mining  and. Exploration company took place  on Tuesday evening at the office of  the secretary, K. T. Wickwire, Grand  Forks sending as its representatives  Fred Knight and Sam J. .Miller.  The financial statement placed before the meeting gave evidence of a  most satisfactory condition, showing  the company to have on hand some  eight thousand dollars to its credit.  The election of directors resulted  in the re-election of Messrs, Noyes,  Bunting, MacDonakl and Wickwire,  with S. J.   Miller,   of Cjiand   Forks,  Bunting was  F. T. Wickwire re-elected secretary.  The condition of the company's  affairs are most satisfactory and prosperous. It is confidently expected  that the company will commence shipping coal this fall.  TAR AND FEATHERS  Harry Lpvison, who was ar.  rested in New York City recently.-  has confessed to having three  stockades iu that city where  women and girls are decoyed and  forciblv detained, and supplied  from there, when required, to  keepers of houses of ill fame.  He will, in all probability get his  just deserts.  GRAND TRUNK EARNINGS  Grand Trunk earnings for the  week ending April 30th increased  $148,028 over the same week last  year.   Wm. Finch, assistant general  manager of the Dominion Tar &  Chemical company, Halifax, was  crushed between two cars and instantly killed recently. He had  been married only a few months.

Judge Sefton has  just returned from Ottawa after  a consultation with the Alberta  members. The elections take  place in July.  THE PRIZE FIGHT  The agitation is rapidly spreading through California strongly  condemning the carrying out of  the Jeffries-John son prize fight.  Popular protest is now strongly  represented by all the pulpits and  press.      .    ���   STRIKE SETTLED  Y.M.G A, CAMPAIGN  The Y. M. C.

At a meeting of the Western  Federation of Miners held on  Wednesday evening last, a vote  was taken which resulted in favor  of returning to work under the  same conditions as before the  strike.    The first census haB just been  taken at Fort George, showing a  population of 49, inclusive of  three Chinese.  THE CANADIAN BANK  OF COMMERCE  HEAD   OFFICE, TOKONTO  ESTABLISHED   1887  B. E.

Parisian Sage cures dntidruff, because it gets right down into the roots
of the hair and kills the thousands of

Since the introduction ot Parisian
Sage into Canada, it has been in demand by thousands of up-to-date
society women. Parisian Sage will

The Payne mine at Sandon is to be  reopened as the result of a visit to  the property of one of the Montreal  directors.    Five hundred miners were entombed, last week, at the Tyn-y-Bedu  collieries in Wales, as a result of the  breaking down of the cage machinery.  - Cryolite is used in the manufacture  of sodium salts, the manufacture of  certain special kinds of porcelain and  glass and as a flux in aluminum smelting.  An entirely new ore body has been  made in the War Eagle mine, at  Rossland The shipments are said to  average $40 per ton, and about 5 per  cent copper. .  A new quartz district has been  found near Quesnel and a number of  claims located. Assays of the ore  show it to carry gold and silver averaging $20 to the ton.  came down on the steamer Amur recently, bringing several samples of  high grade ore which he is stated, to  have taken out with a pick,;,-   ">'���   .  The output of the Hosrrier mines  is increasing daily and will soon reach  the thousand ton mark.  W. G. Larsen, superintendent of  the Le Roi Mining Co., Rossland,  has been appointed consulting engineer  for the syndicate operating the Ikeda  Bay mines on Queen Charlotte islands. ,  It is estimated that enough ore is in  sight at the Standard mine, at Four  Mile creek, near Silverton, to keep a  crew of 20 men stoping for five years.  G. H. Aylard, New Denver, is the  manager.    The discovery of oil on the property of the British Columbia Parafine  company, at Matsqui, is one of the  most important finds ih the province.  The lands are impregnated with oil  and burn freely when a match is applied.   Another rich strike of gold on Graham island is reported. J. Douglas,  who has  been  investigating a claim,  It is figured that Granby is producing at present at the rate of 25,000,-^  000 pounds of copper per annum and  earning not less than $5 per, share,  In the first three months of this year  it treated over 300,000 tons of ore,  or at the rate of 1,200,000 tons per  annum.  ������jg ���  F. L. Hess, of the U. S. Geological Survey, describes an excellent test  for tin ore in Mineral Resources for  1908, which method, on account of  its simplicity, deserves to be widely  known. A piece of the suspected  mineral is treated with zinc and dilute  hydrochloric or sulphuric acid, preferably the former, when, if tin oxide, a coating of metallic tin soon appears on the fragment. Some of the  hydrogen gas, given off by the action  of the acid on the zinc, unites with  the oxygen of the tin ore, to form  water, leaving metallic tin on the surface of the specimen. The mineral  and the zinc should be in close contact, consequently granulated zinc is  recommended, though the present  writer finds that zinc shavings also  work well. No heat being required,  the test can be made in an ordinary  china ��� cup, and, after putting some  zinc under and round the fragment,  a little water may be added and then  enough hydrochloric acid to cause a  vigorous action. In a few minutes  the liquid can be poured off and the  mineral washed in water, when, if  cassiterite or tin oxide, a grayish metallic coating will be seen, which, by  rubbing on the hand or with a soft  cloth, soon becomes bright. Care  must be taken to have an excess of  zinc present, or to pour off the liquid  before all the zinc is dissolved, otherwise, the acid, if in excess after the  zinc is all in solution, will in course  of time  dissolve  the  coating of tin.  Supposed tin minerals are often tested  on charcoal with a blowpipe, but the  above method is simpler, and further,  there is no necessity to reduce a speci-  ���men to powder, as, in some of the  writer's experiments, good results  were obtained with pieces of cassiterite -'thr.ee-quartefs  of an   inch   in di-  AT THE CHURCHES  Methodist ��� Rev.

TWAIN IN VICTORIA  As is well known, Mark Twain : pastor.'  was an inveterate smoker, and never  let a .moment go by when possible  without smoking his pipe or a cigar.  When going on a long journey he  had a moral dread of running out of  tobacco. When lie was in Victoria  lecturing lie was to s:iil next day for  Honolulu. During a walk down  Government street he espied a wholesale dealer in cheroots and bought  three thousand of them, together with  fifteen pounds of pipe tobacco. In  the afternoon he went back to the  store and bought three thousand more  cheroots. That evening, shortly after  beginning his lecture, he surprised his  manager, who was in the audience,  by beckoning him to come to the  stage. The summons was obeyed  with alacrity, much to the curiosity  of the audience. The manager  mounted the platform, and when at  the lecturer's side Mark Twain stopped in his talk, and turning to his  manager, said:  " Pond, I fear that cigar place may  close before I get through here.    Go  there   now  and  get fifteen hundred  j  more of those cheroots."  And turning to his audience, Mark  Twain went on with his lecture as if  nothing had happened. Next day he  sailed from Victoria with the seventy-  five hundred cheroots and fffteen  pounds of pipe tobacco, perfectly  happy and with his mind easy.

This, though cminating trom  one of our would be "foremost  citizens," should no more be tolerated than any similar demonstration from one of our low down  bum muckers. Why such demonstrations should be petuiitted by  the police, who are expected to  fall over themselves to capture  one unmanly enough to raise a  rough house in r.he restricted district, is beyond " ken."

Possibly, too, we have been fearfully  watching, as" the years go round, the  steady but relentless fading that promises, ere long', to make these dear treasures but a memory indeed. Why not  perpetuate these old picture-memories  while there is yet an opportunity? A  few years hence even the faintest outlines may have vanished forever.  Modern methods and modern papers  will give you a lasting copy of such  pictures, and skillful work will preserve  to you the portraits that you have  almost despaired of and give them to  you in .most cases even clearer and  more reniiniscentlv than the faded  copit?s yon now h;>.ve  Why not bring these old pictures to  me? I at least will truthfully tell you  whether it is too late to save them.  J. H. JAMES,  City  Studio,  Deadwood  Street.  GREENWOOD,  B. C.
