BURNS & CO.  I  Wholesale and Retail Dealers in  Fresh Meats  Poultry and Game  i  The following; resolutions, passed  by the Greenwood Board of Trade,and  forwarded to Ottawa last week, is an  earnest of the excellent work beinjj  done by "the citizens of Greenwood  this first month of J.910. The value of  the railroad connection from Denoro to  Midway to the district is hard to estimate, but it will be a distinct boon to  Greenwood and the neighbornood,  and no effort should be spared to assist the Board of Trade in their fjood  work to provide an additional through  railway for this growing section, and  after all, it is only a part of the original agreement between the charter  owners and the province that the  Greenwood Board of Trade is urging the Dominion government to have  carried out. The following are the  resolutions sent to Ottawa:  Whereas, the Vancouver, Victoria  and Eastern Railway and Navigation  company was incorporated, by Chapter 75, of the Statutes of 1897, of  the Province of British Columbia,  and its works were, by Chapter 89 of  the Statutes of 1898 of Canada, declared to be works for the general advantage of Canada, and as such became subject to the legislative authority of the Parliament of Canada and  the provision of the Railway Act.  And, whereas, the said company  has filed at Ottawa a route map of  the said railway as amended to supercede the place approved by the Honorable the Minister of Railways and  Canals on February 28th, 1906, which  last mentioned plan superceded that  approved on June 26th, 1905.  And, whereas, the said route map  and plans show that the line of said  railway shall extend from Grand  Forks to Midway by way of Denoro1  and  l<��i:^^*ii'..^v&i"*^  authorized connections with American lines, and has failed to construct  the road between Grand Forks and  Midway along the line indicated on  the plans heretofore approved.  And, whereas, the said company  has failed to file the plan of said road  with the registrar of deeds at Kamloops, as required by Section 163 and  Sub-section 2 of Section 164 of the  Railway Act, and has nevertheless  constructed portions of the railway in  violation of section 168  of said Act.  And, whereas, the Act incorporating the said railway company provides  that the road shall be built from Bur-  rard Inlet, through the valley of the  Fraser river and the southern part of  of British Columbia by the most direct feasible route to the Columbia  river and the city of Rossland.  And, whereas, no portion of the  railway has been built from Rossland  to Laurier, or from Grand Forks ta  Midway through Southern British Columbia.  And, whereas, it has come to the  notice of the Greenwood Board of  Trade that the said railway company  is again making application tothe Parliament of Canada for an extension  of time for the completion of the railway.  Therefore, be it resolved, that the  Greenwood Board of Trade "protests  against the granting of any concessions to the Vancouver, Victoria and  Eastern Railway and Navigation company until it shall have constructed a  road from Grand Forks to Midway  by way of Denoro and Greenwood  and otherwise fulfilled its obligations  to the southern part of British Columbia, as contemplated in the legislative  enactments respecting said railway.  And be it further resolved, that  copies of this resolution be forwarded  to the Right "Honorable Sir Wilfrid  Laurier, premier; Martin Burrill,  Esq., M. P., for the district of Yale-  Cariboo;   the  Hon,   Wj  man, the Hon.

Separated from the great centre of  the Empire,by an angry sea, the  fertile island to the west of Great  Britain has for many. years been  the home of discontent, based  principally on the fact that it is  governed, or misgoverned, by the  English, aud that ite cry for home  rule has received no adequate response from the British government. And yet Ireland has many  claims to advance for a similar  independence to that obtained by  other portions of the great Empire. Local government, subject  to the maternal supervision of the  great mother of nations, would  not of necessity' end in separation, any more than Canada or  Australia is separated from the  mother country through their  system of self government.  :,/Great men throughout the  world have seen the first light of  day in the green fields of the  Emerald Isle.  There has not been an English  general since Marlborough. Wellington was born at Dangan Castle, Meath, of an old Irish family  called Wesley, and christened in  "Dublin. Wolfe was born at Fer-  neaux Abbey, Kildare, and christened at Westerham���nearly in  the same case as the Brontes  (Brunfy). His grandfather defended Limerick against William  'III.  Sir John Moore and the Na-  piers were Scotchmen; so was  Abercrombie   (Egypt);   so were  apjer of Magdala^ Crawfcjrdand  feated in a by-election last^ yeat;  NEXT MONDAY  The Hockey game of the  season will take place at the  skating rink on Monday next,  January 24, between Greenwood  and Phoenix. Be sure to take  this'in. It concerns you. Help  the local team, be prepared to  root loud and long.  VESTRY MEETING  The annual vestry meeting of  St, Jude's parish will be held en  Wednesday, January 26, at 8  p. m., in the church. This meeting is open to all parishioners  and it is hoped tbat there will be  a large attendance.  A NEW BANK  ;he two Lawrences (Irish), Ed-  wards(Welsh), and Rose(Scotch).  Whether Scotchmen like to be  called English or not, certainly  Irishmen do not.  STRUCK IT RICH  Notice is given in the Canada  Gazette that application will be  made to parliament at its present  session for an act to incorporate  the Bank of Saskatchewan, to  transact a general banking business in Canada and elsewhere.  A GREAT FLIGHT  Paulhan flew from Los Angeles  to San Pedro and back last week,  at top speed, iu his Farmau biplane,  THE ST. EUGENE  In 1909 the St. Eugene mine at  Moyie produced $705,000 worth of  ore and employed 350 men.  Any fool can make a woman  talk, but it requires a very clever  man to make her listen.  Hon. C. H. Mackintosh, formerly of Rossland, is likely to  make another fortune in mining.  When the British America Corporation was organized Govenor  Mackintosh was made its managing director and on its behalf  purchased $5,000,000 worth of  mining properties in the Rossland camp, including the Le Roi,  for which $3,500,000 was paid.  The Govenor made a considerable  fortune at that time estimated  at about $300,000, which he  lost in speculating in real estate  and in mines He has however,  kept in touch with mining affairs and he has now a silver  property in Gowganda that will  probably make him rich. The  vein is well defined and runs  thousands ot dollars to the ton,  PEACE IN SIGHT  Negotiations for peace are said  to be on again between the Nicaragua revolutionists and President Madriz. Tbe tragic drowning of Forhos Diaz, Estrada's  peace envoy, who fell into the  sea when he was about to land  for a meeting with the commis-  sisner of Madriz, halted the negotiations a few days ago.  FIRST TO ARRIVE  GREENWOOD-  PHOENIX TUNNEL  Once more work on the great  tunnel to Phoenix is in full  swing. The newly installed drill  compressor started at 9 o'clock  Wednesday morning. Two hun  dred and twentv-six feet was  driven by hand, and now the rate  of progress with the drills will  be very much accelerated. There  are 22 men employed, superintendent, 8 miners, 9 muckers, 2  compressor men and 2 blacksmiths. The complete equipment is now ready for continuous  work and the management expects to make trom 12 to 15 feet  per day.  Great Credit is due Duncan Mcintosh, the superintendent, for  the business-like way in which tbe  machinery has been installed and  for the economical handling of  the entire work. The tunnel is  a model one from the entrance to  its face, and everything is very  much ship shape.  There is no doubt that after  the first 800 to 1,000 feet have  been driven that the first of the  many rich veins of ore to be encountered will be in place to encourage the promoters of this  gigantic mining venture. The  Greenwood-Phoenix tunnel has  the good wishes of the community.  THE RAJAH  The Rajah, with his many  pretty wives, was at the Auditorium last week. The operetta  was highly amusing, iu spite of  the fact that only a small part of  THE BRITISH  ELECTIONS  - It will be some days before the  final returns are available in re  the British elections. The Liberal ministers are confident of a  working majority. Returns to  date are as follows: Unionists  120, gains 51; Liberals 98, gains  11; Nationalists 28, gains 0; Labor 19, gains 2.  THE TALKING PICTURES  A bumper house greeted tbe  first appearance of the Dreamland Theatre Co.'s Cromophone  Talking pictures last week. The  excellent entertainment afforded  general satisfaction. The pictures were capital, and it is hard  to realize that one is not actually  viewing the originals, for every  action was accompanied by a  similtaneous vocal reproduction.  Thursday's evening's program  comprised songs by Harry Lauder, Ada Jones and Len Spencer.  In addition were four splendid  reels of moving pictures. Miss  Jean McKenzie sang sweetly and  well, her voice being a well  trained mezzo soprano, The  singing of Annie Laurie called  for a rousing encore. E. R. Mack  sang a capital illustrated song  entitled "It Looks Like a Big  Night Tonight," which was much  enjoyed. The Dreamland Theatre Co. are leaving for a trip to  the coast next week and will play  a return engagement in Greenwood in about six weeks.  WHERE IS COOK?  The   Frankfurter   Zeitung   is  Tils  a^ad-^fbgelh^'^vely^^iM^  better musical box, more wives,  some plot and less patter, the  Rajah would be much improved.  It drew a large house however  and left many impressions in its  wake such as "toosies."  Aii^^^S  ra hiving  0 All is not literature that litters.  bew-seHbn-sly-Effected by recent  events.

ENVIRONMENTS   DANGER  Environment has much to do  with the moulding of individuality, and many individualities,  when grouped together, make a  people, with their peculiar national   trails and   characteristics.  Doubtless George II., of Tonga,  king of a group of 150 small  inlands in the far Southern Pacific, has an idea that he is the  foremost ruler of this self important spheroid. A clear case  of insular conceit, the direct  effect of environment. Even his  diminutive capital city, which  calls itselt Nukuolofa, and which  rejoices iu the fact that it is the  largest aggregation of dwellings  in the many island kingdom, fancies itself a formidable rival of  London or Paris.  We are told that Southerners  are indolent aud slow, and that  the effects of a warmer climate,  and easier conditions of life,  make tbe daily bread seeker in  the tropics, like his surroundings,  easy-going, shiftless but sunny  tempered, and no doubt it is true. I    Thanks  to  the Electric Ligftt  We arc told that amongst the  snows and chills of winter in our  Northern climes, in close proximity to mighty mountains, rushing  torrents, and gigantic forests,  where the struggle for life is  keen and earnest, we will find a  sturdy, energetic race, eager and  watchful, alert but cold.  We humans grow too much like  our surroundings and allow ourselves to be subjugated by the  conditions of life in which, by  providence, we are placed. It is  imperative that we should place  local inaction under our feet  and be indifferent to the influences which go to make us like  the locality we live in. It is imperative that we be different to  the drifting majority,' J*^  row, and be sanguine,  even optimistic���where so many  are blue,  pessimistic  and inanimate.  We speak of the insular prejudice of the Englishman���the  narrow-mindedness of old country  people. We British Columbians  have a species of both, even  worse. We, who can only see  good in our own individual walks  of life, who have got into an interminable rut. have grown like  our buildings, unpainted and un-  cared for, and let ourselves drift  with the tide during the past few  years of inactivity and lack of  hustle and bustle, instead of rising above the waves of local conditions, compelling the betterment of poor conditions of life  by our own endeavor and interest  in affairs, are victims of environment and have no cause to speak  ot the dwellers of the small  islands that lead the world as  being encased iu a shell of insular pride and prejudice. It is  up to us to get out of the rut  when we realize it is too deep, to  try to achieve only the best under  even the worst conditions, to remember our town is not the only  place in the world, nor our national mode of life the only factor  in civilization, that there are  other fields where one can strug-*  gle through a part in life's comedy���perhaps with better success,  and make room for someone  whose character is stronger to  combat the dangers of too long  an acquaintance with the one  scene ot act one, and take a new  part in a new play with new life  and new hopes and new environment, and try hard to make a hit.

Aviation  was especially interesting for the  number of passengers taken on  each flight, without mishap.  Calgary's new hospital is completed at a cost of $150,000. The  building is five stories high and  has accommodation for 200 patients.    A wide spread revolutionary  plot has been unearthed in Lisbon aimed at the Goyernment  and King Manuel. Over 40  arrests have taken place.  Charlie Rankin, of Cleveland,  Ohio, broke the world's indoor  skating record January 13, when  he skated the half mile in one  minute, sixteen and four-fifth seconds.  Rev. Father Dundurand, the  aged priest in the Archbishop's  palace, St. Boniface, is one of  the few survivors who recollect  the last visit of Halleys comet in  1835.    He was born in 1819.  Pat Welch of Spokane, has  been awarded the contract for  tbe completion of the V., V. &  E. line from Abbotsford to Hope,  about 50 miles iu length, and  work will commence on it some  time next month.  The Nobel prize, for physics  has been divided this year, one-  half being given to Guglielmo  Marconi for his development of  wireless telegraphy, and the  other half to Prof. F. K.

REACH NEW GOLD FIELDS  Several new surveys are being  undertaken by the Temiskaming  & Northern railway in an effort  to discover the best route into the  gold fields. This will be determined not only by the coadi-  tion of the country, but also by  the direction iu which the gold  quartz runs.  Have you a weak throat? If so, you  cannot be too careful. You cannot  begin treatment too early. Each cold  makes you more liable to another, and  the last is always harder to cure. If  you will take Chamberlain's Cough  Remedy at the outset you will be saved  much trouble. Sold by all druggists  and dealers.  THE BRITANNIA MINE  It is rather interesting to note  that tbe Britannia copper mine,  near Vancouver, originally promoted by an old Spokanite and  pioneer of both the Boundary and  Libby, Mont , districts, Howard  C. Walters, promises at last to  make good and prove a big profit  owner. The present owners are  spending $30,000 a month in developing and equipping it.  The busiest and mightiest little  thing that ever was made is Chamberlain's Stomach and Iviver Tablets.  They do the work whenever you require their aid. These tablets change  weakness into strength, listlessness  into energy,, gloominess into joyous-  ness. Their action is so gentle one  don't realize they have taken a purgative.

Dakota, have agreed to employ nothing but non-union men.  Surveyors are now busy making a  {'straight Hne from the United mine to  the Highland concentrator at Ains-  kvvorth. The object is an overhead  [tramline, the length of which will be  rabout three miles.  The Granby company will shortly  koffer for sale 13,500 shares of treasury stock at $85, to pay off the indebtedness incurred by its purchase of  [an interest in the Crow's Nest Pass  iCoal and Coke Co.  According to the annual statement  [of the Crow's Nest Pass Coal corn-  many, issued December 30th, a dividend of 8 per cent is to be resumed.  [Production has increased at the mines  fof output of 3,000 tons a day in July  to an average of about 4,000 tons in  [December, and in addition new man-  lagement has  conserved  interests  of  the company and shareholders by setting aside ten cents per ton for depreciation.          A strong and influential syndicate,  headed by John W. Gates, the Chicago millionaire, and which numbers  amongst its members several prominent German financiers, has been  formed for the purpose of erecting in  the vicinity of Toronto a modern  smelting plant. The plant will be  one of the finest on the continent,  and it is estimated that the cost will  be two million and a half dollars. It  is understood that negotiations for a  site are now in progress. It is the  intention of the promoters to form a  close corporation and to obtain its  principal revenue from the refining of  Cobalt ores, much of which now,  necessarily, is taken _ to New Jersey.  The plans for the proposed plant are  now being prepared in Ottawa.  COAST NEWS  If Taken In Time "The D. & L."  Emulsion will surely cure the most  serious affections of the lungs.

Rossland, Feb. 812  The Traders Bank of Canada  has opened a branch in Vancouver on Hasting street.  The Canadian club of Victoria  tendered a luncheon to William  McKenzie, president of the Canadian Northern Railway last Friday.    About 150 people attended'.  Another Board of Trade was  organized at the coast last week,  to be known as the South Vancouver Board of Trade covering  New Westminister and District  and South Vancouver.  The Vancouver Board of Trade  has invited Sir Wilfrid Laurier  to a complimentary banquet, and  the hope is earnestly expressed  that the premier will visit the  west when the Ottawa bouse  rises.  Practically all the large shipments are new going west to  Vancouver. Such is the report  of Grain Inspector Hill, of Calvary. He states that from 20 to  25 cars per day are passing  through Calgary for shipment by  the western route.  THE GARDEN OF EDEN n  According to the Journal de  Stamboul, Sir William Willcocks,  the British adviser to the minister of public works, claims to  have determined the exact site of  the Garden of Eden. He places  it at Hairlah, a flourishing oasis  some 250 kilometrss northwest of  Bagdad. Through this site the  Euphrates runs and is divided  into four arms, representing, the  four rivers of Eden. Sir William  suggests   that   the   deluge   was  MUKDEN RAILWAY  merely the flooding of the entire  plain between the Euphrates and ment   of   Japan  the Tigris, owing ip those  rivers guarded  breaking   down   the    irrigation  dykes which had  been  built by  the pastoral dwellers on the plain.  Tbe question of military guards  along the Autung-Mukden railroad to protect it against the  bandits, is under consideration  between the governments of  Japan and China, but it is likely  to prove somewhat difficult of solution. China is determined apparently, not to permit Japan to  do this police work, while, on the  other hand, Japan maintains that  the Chinese police are inefficient  and the property and lives of  workmen as well as the govern-  must   be   safe-  AEROPLANE IN WAR  For Deep Seated Colds and Couyhs,  Allen's Lung Balsam cures  when all  other remedies fail.

FIFTY  THOUSAND  SHARES  Of the capital stock of this Company are offered for sale at  25 Cents Per Share, $1.00 Par  To provide funds for the development of its coal properties near Midway.  The company owns the coal rights of 2,458 acres of land and has options on  three square miles additional. Work has been done in development continuously since  September 2, and a tunnel is now being driven to cross-cut three seams which show on  the surface. Coal can be delivered from the mouth of this tunnel to the C. P. R.  tracks below by gravity,  .  Development work clone thus far is as follows:  One prospecting tunnel on the surface of the seam, 50 feet in length.  One shaft and drifts, about 45 feet, all in the coal seam.  One shaft and incline, following the proven seam to the depth of 80 feet.  An analysis of the surface coal returns 66 per cent carbon and only 3 percent ash.  The Company owns other properties, including fruit lands, mineral claims,  options on mineral claims, mines and timber limits. Its coal holdings alone are  considered worth more than  its issued capital stock.    An investment in this stock at  i  the present price should be immensely productive.
