Copper company here,  is present, is to be held in Ottawa from the 4th to the 6th of  March.      Tbe  sessions of  the  Mining Institute, while always  interesting   and    important   to  everyone  engaged in or depend-  ent  upon the  mining industry,  will  thin  year   be  particularly  worthy of attention as thereu is a  movement on foot,  which if allowed to prevail,  may partially  defeat one of the primary objects  of the institute,  i e.,  to provide  an association  representative of  all phases of the mining industry  in Canada.    Ever --since the inception of this association it has  been earnestly desired to have it  national   in   spirit as well as in  name   and   this   vear, with the  >dea of further rlearinsr the way  for tire unhindered development  of this idea, an amendment to the  charter will he proposed, for tbe  removal of +he headquarters of  the   institute - from"   Montreal,  where it has had a valuable and  ins-piritine- association with the  Society of Civil Engineers, to the  national capital at Ottawa.  >���+>- -The mfiVetaerit, .which* if- su<5-  cessfnl, will tend to defeat this  end,  is one which is of special  local interest because it contemplates  the   removal    from   the  position of secretary of the institute of H. Mortimer-Lamb, formerly editor of this paper and later  of the B. C.  Mining Record.   A  number  of  Ontario men, under  tbe guise of having the offices of  secretary and treasurer of the institute in the hands of practical  mining men, are advocating the  candidature for these -positions of  H. E. T. Haultain of Toronto and  Milton L. Hersey  of Montreal,  the latter of whom will resign in  case their move to combine these  two  offices  carries.     This  last  move  is  considered inadvisable  because  the  disbursements   are  mainly  in   the secretary's office  and the separate treasureship is  the only check on the expenditure. The honorariums connected  with the offices are insignificant  and the question of economy does  not enter at all into the proposed  change.  Mr. Lamb has proven himself  an efficient officer and is known  well by mining- men from the Atlantic to the Pacific. He accepted his present office at great  personal sacrifice. The provincialism at the back of the movement to centre the control bf this  national society in Ontario is not  to be commended and no member  of the institute should fail to record his protest against it.  'A circular opposing* the change  has been issued, signed by the  president and four men who have  formerly held this office, including S. S. Fowler of Nelson.  No. 22  CITY GUARDIANS  Aid  ermen  , Mayor    Bunting,  Gulley, - Sutherland, ��� Fleming,  Meyer,    Mortimer   and   Wilson  were present at the council; meeting on Monday night.' -     , . ���  ���  The convention of the Union  If you can neither sing nor  dance, attend the Greenwood  Concert Orchestra's dance on  February 28 and listen to the  good music.  of B. C. Municipalities is to be  held at Nanaimo on February 26.  A letter was read from Hon. Secretary Bose asking for a-representative from Greenwood;. It is  the intention of the Union this  vear to recommend changes in the  Municipal Clauses Act, asking  extended powers for the councils.  The' clerk Stated that from time  the changes desired by thi�� council had been made known to the  Union and that further ^presentations were being made to  G. R. Naden, who is on th,e. municipal committee of the legislature, No delegate will be Sent to  Nanaimo v  - Invitation to Rossland winter  carnival was received and filed.  The Boys' Brigade has recently  spent $80 in equipping- itself with  side drums and bug-les. Instructor Hargreaves has raised this  amount and asked the council- for  $30 to p?y for a bass drum.?.

The city solicitor, who was present, advised that as far as he  could see the Municipal Clauses  Act which defines every power  the council has, made no mention  of wood. The council has no  powers except those definitely  stated in this act, and so it would  be impossible to - enforce such a  bylaw. It was a matter purely  between the buyer and seller.  The matter was left over.  Water rates in Anaconda were  reported outstanding to the  amount of $300. On motion ot  Aldermen Gulley and Fleming,  Chief of Police Dodd was appointed collector of water rales  in Anaconda with a commission  of 10 per cent on collections.  On account of the large number  of taxes owing the clerk was instructed to serve a delinquent tax  notice on all delinquent taxpayers. If these taxes are not  paid the property may be sold at  public auction. Notices must be  served before March 1st.  At the 1906 tax sale 110 lots  were sold to the city. The solicitor was instructed to register a  deed for all lots accruing to the  city through it.  Council then adjourned.  GAME ASSOCIATION  The following are the appointments of the Provincial Government as Commissioners for 1908 :  Police���Mayor Bunting, Alderman Fleming, and J L. Coles.  License���Mayor Bunting, Alderman Sutherland, and D. Mcintosh  The Ket^e  River- Game and  Protection   Association,   at    it's  meeting   in   the   City   Hall, on  Tuesday night passed a  number  of very pertinent  resolutions,   to  be forwarded to   the   Provincial  and Dominion governments.    In  the absence of Pres. G. B Taylor,  H. Boak, of   Anaconda, acted as  chairman.  A resolution asking that���  As the spawning season for  Rainbow trout in the Kettle Riv  erand its tributaries does not  commence until after the opening  of the fishing season, the close  season for this district "should b,e  extended from the 25th of March  until the 15th day of May, thus  encouraging the natural propagation and increase of game fish  in these waters and was directed  to be sent to the Dominion and  Provincial governments and to  our representatives, Duncan Ross,  M.P., and Geo. R. Naden.M.L.A.  iri each case.  It was also recommended that  fish ladders be erected at the falls  at Cascade and Boundary Falls  and that a permanent Game  Warden be appointed for-this district, including the 'watershed of  the Main Kettle River above  Cascade.  ,. The following resolutions were  endorsed:  Resolved that the government  be urged to amend the Game Act  in the following particulars:       -  1. That-the sale of game be  prohibited. ������ ' '7-  2. That bear be included in the  protected list, and that the bag  be-limited-to two^f,;.eaeh-species..  3. That thekba'g for sheep be  limited to one ram; for goat two;  and deer to. two of each species.  4. That a tax of $2 be placed  on guns and 50 cents on fishing  rods and that the revenue from  said tax and; fines be placed in a  fund to be known as the "Game  Protection Fund."  5. That all trappers. be registered, paying a tax sufficiently  large to cover expense of registration.  6. That guides be licensed and  registered and the New Brunswick regulations are respectfully  suggested for adoption.  7. That the close season for  trout beextended to all fish in  streams.  Further, the request made by  the Fernie District Game Protection Association, asking for  the establishment of a game reserve in East Kootenay, such reserve to include summer and  winter ranges, and to have a per.  manent game warden, was endorsed.  The secretary was instructed to  enquire from the Dominion and  Provincial governments for literature on fish culture.  A further meeting of the as-j  sociation will be held in a-boufc a  month's time. One of the aims  of the organization is the stocking of the upper waters of Boundary creek and Long lake with  fish.  CRESCENT  LOOKS GOOD  Chicago    Directors    Highly  Pleased With the Mine  and   Its Prospects'  If You .Wish  to Buy  Edward Ford Johnson of Chicago, secretary, one of the directors, and third owner of the  Crescent Minos Limited, who has  been in tho city since Wednesday,  yesterday went carefully over the  Crescent mine and- will make a  report of his examination to  Colonel Dickason and other Chicago capitalists interested in the  property. Mr. Johnson was accompanied by Dr. S. Peacock,  one of the most eminent mining  engineers of Chicago.  Speaking last night, Mr. John-  sou expressed himself as very  greatly pleased with what he  saw. " We have," said Mr.  Johnson,'who original'y bought  the property for the present  owners", "oneof the best equipped  mines I have seen. The new  compressor installed by the Allis-  Chalmers Bullock company, is  working splendidly and stoping  is being started on the 225 foot  level in the morning;. The drifts  have been run about 100 feet, both  north and south, from the shaft  and the ore looks good all the  way. All the men are being put  at work this morning at the end  of the south drift where,' the ore  looks better than anywhere else."  Mr. Johnson said that he had  put a great deal of money into  ���diff eren t**; miojn ga>roperties*i*Jj^jre;  and that after this visit he would  be ready to put a lot more money  in the country. The work will  be pushed right along and Mr.  Johnson has every confidence  that the Crescent will fulfill all  expectations.

As this  is the first start on an\r of the properties of the B. C. Copper Co.  since the shut-down, it is important, although the work to be  done is only development.  TUNNEL PROPOSITION  The Young Men's club of St.  Columba's church last night in  the presence of an audience in  which a good many women appeared to see who were the perpetrators of the idea that they  were having too much liberty,  took back their decision of two  weeks ago and decided that it  was best for the world to let the  women think and talk.

Psi Ysaii  _���       .....    2 00    I 35   2 50 ���  Editor                     A. I).  Macfaklanb  _    rfS^fes  FRIDAY, FEBRUARY ?, 1908.  Thomas W. Lawson has given  up the fight. And so, says Everybody's, the story is ended. But it  is uot ended. Lawson and his  satellites have instilled in the  American people however fickle  and changeable, however stupid  and gullible tbey may have  been, a spirit of uneasiness,  of suspicion tbat must and  will have serious results. If it is  necessary for great capitalistic  furces to form alliances and extensive combines to hold and to  develop successfully their business, their power is manifestly  becoming so great, so fraught  with possibility of evil to the people tbat the governments of the  -world must enter ou a policy of  strict government control and regulation. In Canada we have always been in the position of bene-  -fitting from the mistakes of the  United States and while the in-  tertwinings and combinations of  forces of capital may not have  ���wrought very great havoc here,  the time is at hand when public  opinion should be directed, not  necessarily by the "saffron-hued"  methods of Lawson,but in a sane,  sensible and thoughtful way to  the conditions existing in Canada  and to the most effective and  least disastrous remedy,  Happily the Government is this  The ranks of the   slavery   day  stalwarts are being thinned. The  death of Stedman, the author of  "Osawalomie  Brown,"   reminds  us of the fact that we are slipping  away from a heroic past.    Sted-r  man, who drew   his   inspiration  from Whittier, Lowell, Poe,  and  men of tbe virile spirit of Horace  Greeley    prized    mental     independence more than other things,  and so throughout his life, maintained himself by carrying on an  ordinary business, made himself  financially independent and wrote  with an honest mind.    It   is remarkable that at his death, he so  looked on (the future that he asked  the   following  verses   from his  Undiscovered Country to be sung  at his funeral.   The   poets  used  to be tbe prophets pf the religion  of a future hope ; now, it seems  the tragedy of the   "great  misgiving" has   impressed itself   on  them as on others.  Could we but know  The land that ends our dark, uncertain  travel,  Where   lie thoae  happier   rills  and  meadows low���  Ah, if beyond the spirit's inmost cavil,  Aug-ht of this country could we surely know,  Who would not go ?  Might we but hear  Trie hovering   angels' high   imagined  chorus,  Or catch, betimes, with wakeful eyes  aud clear,'  One radiant vista of the   realm before  US'-  Ah, who would fear ?  Were we quite sure  To find the peerless friend who left us  lonely,  Or, there   by some celestial   stream  ���a pure,  To gaze in eyes that here  were lovelit  only,  This   weary,   mortal   coil,   were we  quite sure,  Who would endure ?  actions, the same as any other  man who goes crazy-mad and  kills a rival, it's good to be done  with it all.  The Concert: Orchestra has demonstrated the fact that it is deserving of the support and patronage of the community. And  just while this is fresh in our  minds, it may be well to remember and impress it a little that no  orchestra can live and be a credit  permanently to the town unless  the people will get in and boost a  little for it. It has no equal in  the Boundary.  The "Old Man's" leading observation in last week's Herald,  is that the lumbermen of the  Kootenay ought to have a duty  of $2 a thousand to protect them  against "dumping" from lumber  merchants of the Northwestern  States. All the mills are carrying heavy stocks, produced at  the highest cost in their history,  They ask only a duty equal to  that which the United States bas  imposed against their products.  The Old Man concludes : " The  Dominion parliament will be derelict in i*s duty to this vast do>  main here in British Columbia if  it fails to impose this duty and  thus give the same protection to  the lumber manufacturers as it  gives to every dealer of whom the  lumber manufacturer must purchase his supplies."  ^Correspondence  Diversify Our Industry  The District Ledger,-the organ  oftheU/M W. of A. at Fernie  opposes the increase of the coal  tax proposed by the McBride government. The only market the  coal companies have for their  products is in the Kootenay and  .the Boundary. The mines here  have been closed because of the  high cost of production. Whv  the provincial government should  try to make the conditions of. the  development of these industries  impossible is truly a marvel.'  The Ledger complains that the  tax must finally come out of the  wagers of the miner. It will at  least prevent the men from getting better wages, inasmuch as it  increases the cost of production  and reduces the margin of profit.  To tbe Editor of The Times':  Sir: Ten years of experience  and observation in Greenwood  should have convinced even dull  people that it is idle to wait any  longer for the two or three miles  of valley laud to be settled exclusively by miners and smelter-  men. crZD CD   '     WTTWfK?  Then why not throw the town-  site into acreage, put it on the  market in one to five acre blocks,  and sell it for what it will bring,  to actual settlers who can raise  hundreds of bushels of fruit and  help thereby to supply the home  market, which consumes thousands of dollars worth of fruit  every year, all of which bas to be  imported, some of it hundreds of  miles?  Did I hear some doubting  Thomas say our altitude is too  high for successful fruit growing? Perhaps the best answer to  that is the fact, not generally  known, that in Phoenix (2000  feet above us), prize apples have  been grown. Besides, the few  enterprising people on the towc-  site, who have had the courage  to plant trees and small fruits,  have been moderately successful  for beginners. If the land referred to can be had at a moderate price it might induce some of  the many people who are going  in for fruit growing in* the towns  around to locate in Greenwood  o  and thus in a few years double  our present population with a  most desirable and much needed  class of people with benefits a'l  around.    Yours truly,  R.*J. Moffatt,  Greenwood, Feb. S, 1908.  REASONS FOR OPTIMISM  (CANADIAN COURIER)     ���  The Bank of England's fate of discount has  been -lowered from seven to four per cent. Another world-wide money crisis; has passed.  In 1907, Canada received 17,000 more British  emigrants than did the United States.  L/ast year 117,586 British emigrants left for  Canada, while onlv 14,369 went to Australasia.  The Grand Trunk Pacific hopes to have its  line from Edmonton to Winnipeg in operation by-  September.    The distance is 794 miles.  The Dominion Government has decided that  every man in the* West, who has a farm, some horses and a seeding machine, shall have plenty of  seed grain.  The mild weather has made living less expensive and has saved hundreds of thousands of dol-  larsfor the railway companies.

The only agreeable thing about  the Thaw decision is that at last  we are done with public recitals  of all their infamy. And while  most people will agree that Thaw  '�� hould be held responsible for his  The attitude taken by K. L.  Borden on the Japanese settlement is that of a pettifogger.  He might now be aptly termed  the quack specialist on discontent.  During the past year the tactics  of the leader of the opposition  have been extremely simple. At  the sign or hint of a grievance  anywhere he has straightway  rushed in with his patent cure-all  salve, and adopted the case of the  aggrieved as his own has taken  it in hand to cure it. It matters  not how conflicting the symptoms are in different sections of  the Dominion, his policy of expediency knows no law of either  logic or consistency.���Saskatoon  Phoenix.  Tbe bureau of forestry is trying to estimate the forest area of  Canada. The estimates range  from 800 million acres to 300  million. The latter is the figure  of Dr. B. E. Fernow, who funks  it "will cover the commercially  valuable timber land area actual  and potential." At this estimate the forest area of Canada is  not much more than half that of  the United States. R. H. Camp-'  bell, superintendent of forestry  for the Dominion government,  gives a rather larger estimate.  He has calculated the forest area  of the Dominion at about 535  million acres, divided  as follows:  aches  British Columbia 182 million  Man., Sask ,  Alta., and unorganized territories 180 million  Ontario  40 million  Quebec 120 million  New Brunswick 7% million  Nova Scotia    5 million  The Cranbrook Herald, whose  editorial columns are without  doubt the most pi ��jent of the  weeklies of B.C., has the following to say of Mr. Ross' place in  the House of Commons r  "The people of British Columbia, regardless of party affiliations, would do well to read the  speech made by Duncan Ross in  the Dominion Parliament last  Thursday. Iu a clear a.nd concise  manner he shows up the hypocrisy  of the McBride government on  the Oriental immigration question and places Mr. Bowser, whose  legal firm acted as attorneys for  the Japanese immigration agency,  in a very bad light indeed. Mr.  Ross is a comparatively new member of the Dominion House, and  yet there has never been a session  since he was elected that lie has  not made good in his fight for  the people. That is why Mr.  Ross has beeu subjected to so  much personal abuse since he was  elected, but if the electorate of  Yale-Cariboo appreciates good  work on the part of their representative, nothing under the heavens can prevent Duncan Ross being returned at the next election.

Road Foreman Wilmhurst has  ten men at work on the wagon  road between Midway and the  Kerr ranch. When the work is  completed it means an easier  grade and no railway   croesings.  One of Greenwood's old timers  became tired of the hum drum of  this busy metropolis and left on  February 1 to seek a place that  would suit him better. He bid  his many friends good-bye, stating he would be absent some  three months. He intended  visiting all the points of attraction and business in the west,  but before he had gone many  miles became homesick, and after  an absence of three days returned  to Greenwood singing "there's  no place like ��home." He had  been as far as Midway.  Despite the severe loss sustained by the Greenwood Amateur  Dramatic Glub in attempting to  provide good entertainment for  the boost for itself, knock every  one else city over the bills, the  management have the good fortune and great pleasure of having  about fifty dollars to send to" the  B.C. Anti-Tuberculosis Sanitarium at Tranquille. The result  is exceedingly encouraging to the  club and ought to be gratifying  to the citizens of Greenwood and  Phoenix who supported them so  loyally. A financial report will  be given out later for publication  Fire had spread in about ten  feet'between the ceiling and floor  of the first and second flats of  Gulley & Go's, furniture store,  when found by J. Clark on Saturday night last. Tbe alarm sent  in was from the Bank of Montreal corner and a chimney of the  Rendell Block smoking thickly  received considerable attention  from a large and distressed crowd  and on the arrival of the brigade,  it seemed that although word bad  been left at the corner where the  fire was, no one has taken the  precaution to tell the firemen.  However the brigade deserve every credit for the excellent and  effective way they went at locating and extinguishing the fire.  A few boards chopped out of the  ceiling located the fire and in a  very short time the thing was  over and practically no damage  was done to the stock. Every  care that could possibly have been  taken to pave the furniiure from  damage was thought of and done.  Not only here but in many other  fires in Greenwood, the brigade  has displayed signal efficiency  and saved the Assurance companies thousands of dollars.

WILLCOX  The Phoenix Pioneer^ anxious  always to keep the benighted inhabitants of that isolated village  in the mists of ignorance concerning this thriving city, endeavors to explain away the fact  that Greenwood simply swept the  ice at the Nelssn bonspiel by re-  m ark iug* .that; anything else could  hardly be expected when the  mayor, tbe gold commissioner,  the stipendiary magistrate, the  government agent, the issuer of  marriage licenses, the postmaster,  the plumber, the city engineer,  the undertaker and a few more of  the prominent officials of the city  were all there. Later advices  declare that the remark is the  product of the fertile brain of an  ecclesiastical dignitary who was  a member of one of Greenwood's  victorious rinks, rehashed by the.  energetic editor* of the Pioneer.  The editor might also have remarked that one of the rinks possessed a skip who had a quadruple personality, a thing unknown and unheard of before up  there in the tree. tops.
