Dr.  Swayne, president of the corn-  pan v, states that the ore is self-  fluxing, carries an average of 6%  per cent copper and some . gold.  The mine is eight miles -from  tidewater and it will be necessary  to have an electric railway built  this distance���probably a branch  line from one of the existing  roadS.

Phoenix Foyal Minstrels  Greenwood theatre-goers were  furai shed a fine evening's entertainment on Wednesday night by  the Phoeai* Royal Minstrels.  The program of side-splitting  local hits, songs, stories and dances took two and one-half, hours.  The end-men kept the audience in  constant laughter, and the songs  of the Misses Murray and Graham  elicited many encores, while Mr.  R, K. McCammon was in especially fine voice.  After the concert the floor was  cleared for dancing the music being supplied by the Phoenix orchestra.  The entertainment was a fine  success from a financial" point of  view as well, and Phoenix is to  be congratulated upon its local  talent who were so generous in  lending their accomplishments to  a worthy cause.

Spence, be  appointed to the Bench in the  Court of Appeal constituted by  act passed last session and which  is expected to be proclaimed at  any time.  Four judges are to be appointed,  either of all new men or partly  by promotion 'from the - present  Supreme Court -of B.C., and as  Mr. Spence has been spontaneously and unanimously endorsed for  the position by all the Liberal  Associations throughout Southern  Yale a very great deal of satisfaction will be felt should the honor  of such an appointment be given  to him.  Mr. Spence is a graduate of  Toronto University and Osgoode  Law School, Toronto; is a member of both the Ontario and B.C.  bars and has a wide experience  in the practice of his profession  at Toronto, Greenwood and  Grand Forks.  He came to the Boundary in  1899 and practised at Grand Forks  from that year until 1905.  The people of the Boundary  would be delighted to hear of his  elevation to the Bench.  The Rossland Ice Carnival .will  open on February 2nd and continue for four days with a program of races, hockey matches  and ether games.  After a continuous residence of  eleven years in the Boundary,  Leon Langis left yesterday on a  trip to Ottawa and Montreal to  settle up business in connection  with his property in the east. Mr.  Langis will also visit Nevada,  where he has some interests at  Virginia City, and expects to return to Greenwood in two or  three month's time.  in regard to alleged railway discrimination in freight rates in  favor of Washington points by  the Great Northeru.system. j  The Board of Trade requests  all persons' having any specific  information as to the discrimination complained of to send it ta  jyir. McLaine:  Editor Boundary Crbbk Times.  Dear Sir.���As the Greenwood  Board of Trade intend bringing  before the Associated Boards of  Trade, who hold their annual  convention on the 27th inst., an  important resolution which materially effects the merchants, consumers and shippers of not only  the City of Greenwood but als��  the neighboring towns, I would  be very much obliged if you would  allow me the privilege of having  this brought before the public  through the medium of your paper. The following is the resolution:  "Resolved���That whereas there  now exists gross irregularities in  the freight and passenger rates  of the lines operated by th�� Great  Northern Railway Company, involving unjust discrimination  against British Columbia points  upon the V.V. ,& E- railway in  favor of neighboring peints in the  State of Washington ;  Now, therefore, the Associated  Boards of Trade of Eastern British Columbia urge upon the Government of Canada and upon the  Board of Railway Commissioners  for Canada the pressing necessity  of taking immediate measures to  put an end to the condition now  existing by which a railway built  upon Canadian soil under a Canadian charter deliberately discriminates against Canadian communities;  Resolved further,' that copies of  this resolution be sent by the secretary to Sir Wilfrid Laurier, the  Minister of Railways, and the  Railway Commission."

There ts no way of making lasting  friends like "Making Good;" and Doctor  Pierce's medicines well exemplify this,  and their friends, after more than two  decades of popularity, are numbered by  the hundreds of thousands. They have  "made good" and they have not made  drunkards.  A good, hbnest, square-deal medicine of  Known composition is Dr. Pierce's Gulden  Medical Discovery. It still enjoys an immense sale, while most of the preparation.? that have come into prominence in  the earlier period of its popularity have  "gone by the board " and are never n ore  heard of.

AND  ��res  FRIDAY,   JANUARY 22, 1*09  We are in receipt of a marked  copy of the Riverside Argua re-  feriing to the capture'of McLean  and Canning in that locality by  Constable Bunbury.  Tbe article does injustice to  Mr. Bunbury and we believe that  the Argus will hasten to correct  the wrong impression It gives regarding the Constable's proce-  dor��.  McLean and Canning have not  yet been tried, no reward has ever  been offered for their apprehension and there will not be any.  We believe that the first impression of Mr. Bunbury with the  Riverside people was quite correct, and they are to be commended for the ready assistance given  t�� the officer.  We hope they will coatinue te  extend the same measure of good,  will to the Canadian officers and  the good people of Okanagan  County may rest assured that a  square deal will always be given  them in return.

' To His Worship the Mayor and Aldermen  oi* the City of Greenwood, B.C,  Gentlemen:���Herewith I present the annual financial statement for 1908 consisting of:  > General Revenue Account,  Receipts and Expenditure Account,  School Receipts and Expenditure Account,  Balance Sheet as at December 31st,-1908.  The General Revenue Account shows a debit balance of $6,267.80 which by excluding the depreciation   charge of  I $5,126.32, leaves a deficit of $1,141.48 which means that tbe levy was this amount short of the requirements, even  if all  laxea had been paid in full.   I am of the opinion that in order to reduce the present  Indebtedness of the City, the in-  conving Council must not only make a sufficient levy to cover all expenditure, but must make a reasonable allowance  [for unpaid taxes.  Special Rate and Sinking Fuud.   The General Revenue Account shows that the following was required for special  [ purposes:  For Debenture Interest : $   5,103 59  For Sinking Fund 5,229 61  The amount collected for taxes was $10,005.95 of which 14/24 was for Special Rate, equals  leaving a shortage of collections for special purposes of   The City paid the following on Accont of Special Fund:  Debenture Interest   Deposits in Sinking Fund _ 1   $10,333 20  5,836 80  $4,496 40  5,103 59  4,575 96  The collections for Special Rate as above were..  $9,679 55  5,836 80  $3,842 75  amount required  which shows that the City deposited this amount of $3,842 75 in"to the  Sinking Fund out of the General Funds.  In addition to the above the Balance Sheet shows that the Sinking Fund is $1,941.19 short of the  by the By-laws.  I certify that I have examined the books and vouchers of the City for the year 1908 and that subject to the above  remarks, the above balance sheet is, in my opinion, properly drawn sd as to exhibit the true financial position of the  \ City as shown by the books at the date thereof.

Archdeacon Colley, rector of Stock-  Ion, ��� Warwickshire, England, at the  cldse of a sermon on spiritualism at  Manchester recently exhibited a series of what he called spirit photographs.  One of them taken in March last  outside his residence, showed tlie  archdeacon's mother, who died fifty  years ago, and his father, who died  in 1891, aged 81. The mother was  never photographed during life, but  her likeness had been recognized by  hundreds in Leamington.  In :i second photograph, taken lialf  a minute afterward,, the father and  mother had changed places, and th?  archdeacon deduces from this a double parental blessing on what he calls  his anti-Sadducee work.  "S venteen years in the Inciter  life." said the archdeacon. "appe:iT tn  work for making my father in tht��  spirit photograph look sotnewh-V  vouit'.'nr than in the negative T took ��..'
