W. 0. Thomas, manager of the
Dominion Copper Co.,'left this
morning for Salt Lake City, to
meet the company's engineer*
M. M. Johnson,, who was unable
to come to Greenwood as announced. Mr. Johnson's inability to come north will, perhaps,
delay tire  beginning of work a
few days, but Mr. Thomas, when
spoken to last night, stated that
everything was good, aud he was
more confident than ever of a full
reopening 'of the company's properties, although be could not say
definitely whether he would have
to remain in Salt Lake City one
day or several days.
First Car on Monday Last—
Treatment 12,215, Bigger
to Come,
The first car of blister copper
shipped from the B..C. Copper
Co's Smelter since the resumption
left the yards on Monday morning. Since then the converters
have been turning out nearly a
car a dav* a record that will be
beaten just as soon as the new
compressor at tbe Mother Lode is
in running- shape and the big tonnage from the Mother Lode starts"
It is expected that they will turn
the Compressor on Sunday but
it will be p. few days after that
before it is in working shape.
At the Smelter there are about
17,5 men at work and with the
operation of the new Crusher at
the custom ore bins, a force will
bxe put on amounting to about 20
men to handle the sample mill.
At present the delay in starting
the sample mill arises from the
C.P.R. not having laid the necessary trackage. This ~ will be
completed by Monday.
The shortage' in coke, feared
because of difficulty in obtaining
a Sufficient supply of cars, and
from the general 'tieing up of
business resulting from-washouts
on the Crow's Nest, is now quite
done away with and coke is com
ing in regularly and the supply
is plentiful.
-. The smelter of. the B. C« Copper Co. this week treated 12,215
tons of ore, which- was distributed as fellows: Mother Lode,
9,423 tons; Oro Denoro, 2,625;
Napoleon, 145, and Lone Star, 21
G. L. Walker in the Boston
Commercial has the following to
say of the Granby Consolidated:
Granby Consolidated directors
have declared a dividend of $2
per share. This is the first dividend since September of last year
when $3 a share was paid. The
company is now producing more
copper than at any previous time
in its career, its output being at
the rate of 30,000,000 pounds annually. ' As its copper now costs
about 8 cents, the company must
be earning at the rate of $1,400,-
000 annually1, or better than $10
per share for its stock. It is quite
probable, ttheretore, that the1
company .will continue the quarterly payments of $2 a share uninterruptedly in the future.
Improvements which are now
under way on the Granby Smelter will be completed iu September, and will enable the company
to produce 36,000,000 pounds of
copper annually thereafter at a
cost of 8 cents per pound. This
will give it earnings of $1,620,000
or $12 per share with copper selling at' 13 cents* - At present the
company is running 7 of its 8 furnaces, and treating about 100,000
tons of copper monthly.      »
Recent diamond drilling has
proved that the great ore body of
the' Granby extends entirely
through the ?4-mile of interven-
ng space between the Old Iron-
Rides and Knob Hill mines on one
side to the Gold Drop on the
other. This ore body is from
100 to 400 feet thick, and. m the
ar«a mentioned contains tens of
millions of tons of ore.-

Big Preparations Made for Monster Celebration on Canada's

After the reports of committees
the Council passed the annual bylaws, arranging for a temporary
loan to cover disbursements until
the taxes are received, fixing the
rate of taxation, and providing
for the appropriations.
■ The Temporary Loan By-Law
gave the Council power to borrow
from the Bank of Montreal $7,500
at an interest not exceeding 7
per cent.
The rate By-Law fixed the ordinary fate at .10 milis, and the
special rate for inteiest, staking
fund and hospital, at 14 mills.
The appropriation By-Law embodied the estimates for the current year, and was as follows: v
• Whereas, the revenue of the
Corporation of the City of Greenwood, from all sources? is estimated at-$35,182.67^ the year
1908, and it is expedient to provide for the appropriation and expenditure thereof*
The Municipal Council of the
Corporation of the City of Greenwood enacts as follows:
There shall be appropriated
and expended from the general
revenue of the City of Greenwood
for the year; 1908 the following
sums for the following purposes
respectively, namely: For

Company and American Metal
Company are making profits out
of the handling of the Granby
product, while true literally, was
evidently intended to convey an
entirely erroneous . impression.
These companies; aim to make a
fair business profit out of all the
bullion they refine and all the
copper they sell, but there is absolutely no basis for the assertion
or suggestion that any more
money is made out of Granby or
higher rate charged it than is
charged any and all other companies served.
The management of the Granby
is above reproach. Indeed, it is
one of the most magnificently
managed mining enterprises in
the world. The company is in
splendid condition financially,
and its available ore deposits are
practically inexhaustible.
Scandinavians Organize-
Scots people have their St. Andrew's Society, Englishmen their
S. of E. Benevolent Society, and
Protestants their P. P. A.
lodges, so the Scandinavian peoples of America are organizing
for fraternal and benevolent purposes as the Scandinavian Aid and
Fellowship Society of America.
Chas. Erickson, of Rossland,
who is organizer for tbe entire
society, organized a Greenwood
branch of the order in the Miners'
Union hall on Sunday night last.
The organizer was not supersti
tious, and after 23 members wera
admitted, the foliowing officers
were elected: , President, Pete
Benson} Vice-Pres., Oscar Johnson; Fin. Sec, Lars Danielson;
Treas., W. Nelson; Rec, Sec,
Anton Pearson; Marshal, Arthur
Johnson; Chaplain, George Swan-
lund^I. G., Peter Sten; O. G.
Nelson Haug; Trustees, Messrs.
Amerstedt, Karl Johnson, Sjal-
und and P. Nelson. Meetings
will be held twice a.month.
There are 54 lodges of the order now in America, some of
these, at Nelson, Moyie, Ward-
ner and Jaffray, having been recently organized by Mr. Erickson. Other lodges in this part of
the country are in Coeur d'Alene
City, Idaho,.and in Rossland and
Phoenix. Quite a number of visitors from the Phoenix lodge attended the meeting here on Sunday night.

Chief Dinsmore.
The Grand Forks Gazette has
the following in reference to Constable Dinsmore, who assumes
his duties as Chief of Police in
Greenwood next Tuesday:
•'It will be learned with much
regret that 1. A. Dinsmore, provincial police constable for the
Grand Forks district, is about to
sever his connection with the
city. Mr. Dinsmore, who has
baen a resident of this city for
the past fourteen years, thirteen
of which have been spent in the
government service, has accepted
the post of Chief oi Police of
Greenwood. ,
" Mr. Dinsmore has always led
a most active life. His district
ha's been large, and during the
first six months of bis^ thirteen
years as provincial* constable he
filled the office of road superintendent. He has always taken a
prominent part in all social life
in the city. Continuously since
1897 be has been a member of the
board of school trustees. He is
Captain of No. 3 tire hall, Captain of Kettle River Rifle Association, Senior Woodward of the
high court I. O. F., trustee of
I. O. O. F. hall and member of
the K. of P.'s.
"Mr. Dinsmore leaves to fill
his new position on tbe 16th inst.,
and Greenwood is to be congratulated in obtaining the services
of an officer of such efficiency.
The decision of Mr. Jus+ice
Clement in the case of Portmann
v. the city of Greenwood, was received here on Tuesday, the action being dismissed with costs.
The action was a suit for possession of water rights on Providence
creek for which both Messrs.
Portmann and the city held what
purported the Crown grants.. It
will be noted in the judgment
given below that Mr. -Tustice .
Clemen., holds that the record
held by Messrs. Portmann can
stand good only as an interim
record, and that the city: was
within its rights in diverting the
In my opinion the   plaintiffs
are estopped from setting up t"h«
invalidity   of   the    defendants'  '
record.   Both parties haye what
purport to   be   grants from the
Crown of the usuffuct.of certain
waters and the plaintiffs'-grant
was deliberately  taken by their
predecessors in title on the basis
of an existing prior grant to the
defendants,   out  of   which  the
plaintiffs' grant was in a sense
carved.     It  was   open  to;. the
plain'tiffs' predecessors in title to
take  in  1900  the  position the
plaMtiffs now' take in 1907-pB;v
and to urge upon the Crown the
invalidity of the record held by
the defend auts.    Had this position been taken it is altogether
probable that the Commissioner
would have retraced his steps in
such position as to place the validity ,of   the defendants' record
beyond cavil.    Be that as it may,
the plaintiffs' predecessors in title
chose to accept from the Crown .
a grant based,  as   I. have said,
upon,   the    defendants'    record,
that record being good by estoppel  as against these   plaintiffs.
The record relied upon by the
plaintiffs can stand   good   only
under Section 44 of the W, C. C.
Act, 1897, as an interim record
entitling- the holders thereof to
use. the water *' until. the same
shall be actually diverted  by the
Municipality under the record."
It is on that actual diversion, and
that   alone,   that   the action is
based as against the plaintiffs.
The defendants were within their
rights,  and the action* must be
dismissed with costs.
W. H. P. Clement, J.
June 4th, 1908.
Of the interest shown in the
tbe Ontario elections, Toronto
Saturday Night, the most independent paper in Canada has the
following to say :—
In many years Toronto has not
shown so little interest in a provincial election as in the present
one. It excites no real interest
except among the few who are
running for office, their intimate
friends and paid workers. The
chief reason, of course, is that
the general result is considered
certain. It is conceded tbat the
Whituey Government will return
to office'with a majoritv slightlw
if at all, reduced. Another cause
of the local indifference is that
the four Conservative members
who sat for Toronto in the last
legislature are, by the ingenious
A and B system of candidature
left without serious opposition.
There is none of the uncertainty'
that would have existed had the
city been divided inte eight ridings. One hears an astonishingly large number of men say that
they wili not vote at all.

But people in British  Columbia must not jump at the  conclusion that the feeling in  Ontario regarding politics is as  it is here. No other government  iu the Dominion, unless it is the  Conservative government of Manitoba, has ever devoted so nearly  half its time to an unreasonable  attempt to fret and harass  the Dominion government as has  the McBride government. The  election iu Ontario was fought  on provincial issues, and on provincial issues'purely. The provincial government did not concern itself with the Dominion  government's business, or vice  versa. For a great many reasons  it is safe to argue that the result  in Ontario will work favorably  rather than otherwise to the  Laurier government.  J. T.

Pbb Ybik '. i    2 00  Six Months I 15  To Forbign Couhtkibs 2 50  Editor  A. D. Macfarlane  FRIDAY. JUNE 12, 1908  THE ELECTIONS.  T be elections on Monday in  Ontario and Quebec will bring  very little satisfaction to any of  the people of either of these  provinces, outside a few hard-  shelled partisans who can consider only the momentary glory  of their own parties. In Quebec,  the evil of a negligable opposition was partly taken away, while  in Onario it was increased, In  the lower province the opposition  had been altogether too weak.  - The increase in tbe holdings of  the Conservatives should have a  beneficial effect in keeping the  Gouin government up to the mark,  as should also the election of the  brilliant but erratic Mr. Bourassa.  Mr. Bourassa's vigorous and extended parliamentary experience  should be of great value in the  legislature at Quebec.  In Ontario,  the record  of the  Whitney government has, on tbe  whole, been fair,    it is true, that  the   school   book   contract    was  fraudulently   awarded,  that the  partisan interference with the license commissioners in  the  various districts, and 'particularly in  East Toronto, was highly reprehensible,   and  that,  in   its last  days, the government succumbed  to  the  persuasive  arguments of  Messrs. McKenzie and Mann, the  Electrical Power people and others who had  fat  purses of campaign funds with which to buy a  nullification of.the vital points  of   the   government's municipal  power,  policy   to    which    Hon.  Adam Beck had so untiringly educated  the'people.    But this is  where Mr.   Whitney's cleverness |  came in.    The   vigorous educational  measures   had had  their  effect, and the impression of the  government's progressive policy  ���which has never been  carried  out���remained with   the people,  and Monday's vote shows the result.    JMr.   Whitney's   ebullient  temper has clothed him with a  personality   of   some   vigor,   so  that the reputation of his government has not lacked strength.  Under     the   circumstances;    he  might have been  more, generous  with his opposition in the gerry-  mander, which, after the manner  of new governments, 'was railroaded through the House. Particularly is this true of Toronto,  .where Mr. Whitney adopted the  very dubious device of giving the  seats a double representation. In  Toronto, in its present provincial  constituencies,' no   Liberal  ever  dreams of being elected, and majorities oi 3,000 for Conservative  candidates who make no pretence  of   having political   ability are  not unusual.   It is safe to say  that no other division of the city  that   Mr.  Whitney   conld   have  made would be able to continue  stifling the Liberal voice, so the  old boundaries were retained, and  each seat given two members, In  the long run, it certainly would  have paid Mr. Whitney to have  been fairer.  Mr.   McKay,   it   must be  admitted, put up a Strang, if not an  effective  fight.    He is a  young  man, left in the leadership of the  Liberal party because all his superiors had gone to strengthen  the  government  of Sir Wilfrid  Laurier.    Mr.  McKay is today,,  however, a  very much stronger  man than two years ago, and by  the time another election comes,  should be able to make an impression   on   Ontario   that   will  count.    The large majority of the  Whitney   government   will,   no  doubt, help him, as it will hinder  the provincial Premier.  > A great deal is  being said in  British Columbia of the influence  of these elections on a probable  Dominion election.    In Ontario,  if anything, it will bring a re- Phoenix Knights of Pythias  action. Ontario people do not have elected the following offi-  like governments with large ma- cers:   F. C Graham, C. C; R. J.  More From John Houston.  The Nelson Daily News, since  it has become Independent C. P.  R.-Conservative,     makes   statements that will not bear investigation.    One of its statements is  that " the procedure in making  up voters' lists in British Columbia is simole., and -because of its  simplicity no complaints of unfairness   are   heard.".    Yet   the  Daily News is printed in a small  city where an attempt was made  to disfranchise*485 residents of  the district, all because they were  supporters of   a  candidate who  was net running as a ConservaT  <ive. . The attempt did not succeed because the Supreme  Court  of British Columbia said it was  wrong to disfranchise hundreds  of men merely because one or two  or three irresponsifcle individuals  raised technical objections to the  names being placed ou the voters'  lists at a time when  it was not  possible for the men whose .names  were objected to to get a fair and  speedy hearing.    If 485 residents  of one district could be deprived  of their right to vote because of  " tbe simplicity of tbe procedure  in making up voters'jlists iu British   Columbia,"  is it not about  time    that   the    procedure   be  changed?  If the procedure in making up  voters' lists in British Columbia  is so fair as the Conservative  newspapers would have their  readers believe, why is it that the  men who have been appointed  commissioners for taking affidavits under the Elections Act are  all of one political party? It}  may be stated that 500 men have  been gazetted in the last *wo  years as commissioners to take  affidavits, none of whom are Liberals. Of course, if the assertion is true, that Liberals are not  to be trusted in British Columbia  because, members of that party  are crooked in Ontario, then the  people of the province should feel  grateful to the Conservatives for  protecting tbe good name of the  province. But, somehow, such an  assertion will not be accepted by  people who have had dealings  with Conservatives who got their  political schooling in Manitoba.  ���Prince Rupert Empire.  Gardner. V. C; W.

According to the results of  Commissioner King's investigation, the Vancouver riots will  cost Canada $50,000, of which  $25,000 will go to Chinese and  $8,000 to Japanese claimants.  Revelstoke is getting excited  over the possibility ef tbe route  from there north via the Big  Bend and Canoe rivers to the G,  T% P. line, being chosen as a supply route. Revelstoke is 180  miles from the new line, and 140  miles of the distance is good  water transportation.  Nine million feet of lumber belonging to the Patrick Lumber  Company, in boom on the Slocan  river, ,went out and down the river on Saturday last The loss is  said to be about $60,000. The  booni was situated about four  miles from the junction ot the  Slocan and Kootenay rivers, and  about twelve miles" from the Co-  lumbia river. There are several,  mills oh the Columbia river, and  it is hoped that their booms will  catch most of the logs as they go  down.  The    Registrar-General     has  issued his report on vital statistics for the  year 1907 under the  Births,   Deaths   and   Marriages  Acts, statistics which do not include Indians..   The returns aire,  among other things,   noteworthy  for the very considerable excess  of births over deaths,  which is  remarkable in a new country containing more than the usual proportion of unmarried persons.
