The  building of the ships in Canada, it is  estimated, will make the cost 25 per  cent more than in Great Britain.  With a view of demonstrating to  the admiralty and other shipping in-  terests of Great Britain that the St.  Lawrence route to Montreal is navigable for deep draught vessels, Hon.  Mr. Brodeur has decided to have the  warship Niobe, which is to form the  nucleus of the Canadian navy on the  Atlantic, steam to Montreal. The  Niobe draws 27 feet of water.  The London Standard says: "We  in this country can feel nothing, but  admiration for the zeal and promptitude wi' #Mcn Canada has entered  updri tm vrreat enterprise of establishing a' navy."  The Standard adds that it is glad to  see that some of the vessels are to be  laid down in Canadian yards.  FINANCIAL    STATEMENT  mm u.umwauttma'ma'*!  THE LATE DR.  J.

J. C. Herdman, D. D.,  who so recently passed into the higher  life and service.  He came west in the autumn of  1885, and was tlie leading spirit  among the younger brethren with  whom he was associated in those early  days in the foundation work of the  church in the two provinces of British Columbia and Alberta. He was a  most indefatigable worker, of clear  vision and most beautiful Christian  spirit that endeared him beyone the  power of words to express to those  who in any way were ever associated  with him in the work of the church,  either as the minister of Knox church,  Calgary, or as superintendent of home  missions. He has been greatly missed from the counsels during the past  three years that he has been laid aside.  Now he has gone, but his memory  and' his monument remain as evidence  of the noble spirit's presence and influence as an abiding inspiration to  those of us who are left.

In submitting this report we  would like to compliment the  Scouts and Scoutmaster on the  very creditable and business like  manner in which the accounts  have been kept, which reflects  much credit on tbe organization.  Subscription lists will shortly  be opened for the purpose of providing funds for the Troop, and  it is hoped that the public will  contribute liberally, as Scoutmaster Hargreaves has an important course of instruction to  give to the Scouts which will require financial assistance. In addition to the list which will be  taken around by the Scouts, the  Banks will also receive contributions from anyone desirous of  helping along this very worthy  cause.

The ceremonies bewail in the old  lodge room on Baker street from  which a parade of about 1.50 members, marched to the new temple.  The function of dedication having  been completed with all due ceremonial, the entire body of the members returned to the old lodge in processional order, where the usual closing ceremonies were carried out.  The election of officers for the Masonic grand lodge resulted as follows:  Grand Marshal���E. D. Paul, Victoria.  Deputy Grand Marshal���F. J.  Burd, Vancouver.  Grand Senior Warden���A. H.  Skey, Kamloops.  Grand Junior Warden���j. M.  Rudd, Nanaimo.  Grand Chaplain���Rev. H. G.  Fiennes, Clinton, Vancouver.  RIFLE ASSOCIATION  FOOD'S  CELEBRATION  If Dominion Day will act in concert with the committee who have  been giving its strenuous efforts to  have it pass off iii good shape, then  we will have a welcome day off from  business troubles and trials, and act as  if we were again kids, and bound to  enjoy tlie day. A fine, cool day is  what we want, and it looks as if the  rest will be provided for by those in  charge, to have a jolly good time.  Baseball teams from Republic, Phoenix and Grand Forks will be here and  assurance is given of a large number  of visitors from surrounding towns,  and we want them to vote it a first-  rate days' sport.  The football match in the morning  will be between Phoenix and the  Mother Lode teams.  WANT WHIPPING POST  Chas. A, Matthews, of Midway, married to Miss Hillman of  St Louis last evening by the  Rev. W, A. Robin of Greenwood.  A meeting was held on Monday  evening at the court house to take  steps to reorganize the Greenwood  Rifle association. A large number of  the old members, with the addition  of many who intend joining, gave a  very creditable showing and an augury  of future success. The Mother  Lode contingent numbered 17, which  will form part of the regular corps.  After regular routine opening enrollment followed totalling 30 men._ The  election of officers resulted as follows:  W. G. McMynn, captain; E. E.  Hibbert, 1st lieut., R. A. Chester,  sec.-treas. Managing committee,  Dr. McLean, R. J. Sanders, C. T.  Bailey, P.W. Lover and Bert Logan.  The association" starts off with a very  enthusiastic lot of members aiid we  trust they will stay with it, and not get  weary in well doing.  Provincial officer Darragh returned from Oroville, where he  captured one of the prisoners who  broke jail at Greenwood last  week.  Greenwood is in holiday attire.  A successful trade's procession,  athletic sports and hores racing.  Tbe fire brigade made a fine  showing and came out on top in  the events. A large number of  Kootenav visitprs  were  present.  IN THE WILDS 31 DAYS  Capt. Roland, an 83-year-old  mining ehgineer, lost himself in  the woods near Wabigoon, Ont.,  and lived ior 31 days on poplar  leaves and other herbage. Attracted by birch bark parchment  scattered promiscuously by the  captain, a Dominion government  geological survey party, including Dr. G. L. Parsons, of Toronto, and Messrs. Thompson and  Marguerah, of Kenora, searched  and found him crawling on his  hands and knees about one mile  from the trail from which he had  strayed. Save for physical weakness Capt. Roland is apparently  none the worse for his experience.  W. King, of Revelstoke, hag  received the commission for the  drawing of the plans for the new  government court houses at Kaslo  and Grand Forks.  The Toronto Synod of the  Anglican church has passed a  resolution calling for the use of  the lash upon men convicted of  crimes upon the persons of women  or girls. It is to be hoped that  the minister of justice will see  his way to insert iu the Criminal  code the necessary authority for  judges to send men to the whipping post for such offences. The  need for this change in the law is  a crying one. For some reason  examples of leuitv towards brutal  wretches at whose hands women  and girls Lave suffered the extreme of outrage have been frequent, and it is more than ever  desirable that parliament should  emphasize the gravity of these  crimes and increase the sternness  of the law for their punishment.  Orient will celebrate the Fourth  of July.  IS UNCLE SAJ  READY FOR WAR  After pigeon-holing Koprosent-  ative McLacblan's resolution* demanding that the war department  be called upon to show its preparedness for war, the hoine committee on' military affairs have  decided to report in favor of the  resolution.  McLachlan's 'resolution and his  speech, made at the time of its  introduction, declaring that ric  Japanese o>uld cnptire and Ik !d  the Pacific slates, has resulted in  thousands of lel'or-- '���> -ing sent to  thc military authorities ik'in;iidling that the war departmeut'make  a statement on tl��e matter.  INSPECTED THE GRADE  The valuators and engineers  have inspected the grade between  Midway and Rock Creek. The  advising engineers. McCullcugh  aud Smith, have finished the talcing of measurements for estimating the amount of unfinished  work. The board has prepared a  notice calling up claimants to file  their claims, properly verified,  with the secretary, Mr. Green,  thus giviug all those holding  cheques for wages ample time to  present their claims.  WILL BUILD THE ROAD  The Domiuion government has  decided to go ahead with the construction of the Hudson Bay railway. At the recent session an  appropriation for construction  purposes went through, and the  plans and specifications have been  in preparation for the section of  the line on which surveys were  completed. Tenders are to be  called for at once.  <?'  TOO LIGHTLY TAKEN  In the United States it is probable that the ease with which  mis-mated couples may be divorced tends to make them less  cautious in entering into the covenant. The tendency toward  childless homes has the same  effect. Marriage is coming to be  regarded as a casual 'relation, to  be discontinued whenever tbe  husband and wife fail to agree.  In a great many cases there are  no children to hold husband and  wife together, and they drift  apart, to become divorced, or,  without that formality, to enter  other temporary alliances. There  can be no shadow of doubt that  in the United States particularly!  matrimony is not considered the  solemn institution of forty years  ago. it is light-heartedly and  carelessly entered upon, and girlB  who earn their own living are not  more likely than other girls to  have elders who will oblige them  to realize what a serious step they  are contemplating.  =^  C F.

But our business is to keep our  lines of trade full  east and west,  The art of managing  men, the  ability to manage a crew of men,  is not measured by a man's intel-  lec tnal  accomplishments.    A  knowledge of human nature is of  the utmost importance, particularly   in   tbe matter of dealing  with the foreign element, and two  qualities are most essential, which  are firmness and tact.    The boss  must, of course,   thoroughly understand his work  and  just how  he wants   it done,  impress this  upon his men  and inspire them  with  confidence  and respect.    It  is not necessary   that a boss be a  bulldozer,   which  naturally sets  the men against him and detracts  from their labor efficiency.   Tact,  the ability to   size   up   men and  keep every one in a good  humor,  is us uecessary in  handling- men  aa in controlling childen.    A boss  is seldom liked by.his men. but if  the   men   know, that   whatever  happens, they can expect a square  deal, he will win their confidence  and   respect,   which   is half the  battle.

Cbc  Boundary Creek Times  issued ���very Tridav  The following, from the Los  Angeles MiningKeview, explains  very lucidly the copper market  situation:  "There is this much to say regarding the price of copper in  these days of jacked-up commodity prices. When the producer is  constrained to mine, refine and  j sell about eight pounds of high  grade American copper for a dollar the tudustry must be settling  down pretty close to a hard-pan  basis.

Copper in the  mine is too valuable an asset to  throw it away needlessly. The  large ijuatitity of copper which  was mined at a loss last year not  only reduced the wealth of the  properties affected, but contributed to thc general detriment of  the entire market.' There were  other prominent producers able to  carry on mining operations at a  profit, but after undertaking to  pay dividends were compelled to  confess a deficit iu connection  with 1909 business. Supply and  demand are the potent factors in  the situation, Speculation and  manipulation have uot been very  fruitful in practical results of a  permanently beneficial character  to values. The truth of the matter is the market is overweighted  with excessive supplies which  prevent it rallying from a depressed state. :i * * Curtailment of-output would prove the  most effective remedy for the restoration of confidence iu copper,  but it is a question if such a salutary measure will be resorted to  in the near future.

THE BIGGEST FISH  This is the first year that British  Columbia will have exported any large  amount of fruit. The Okanagan  alone, it is estimated, will ship- 500  cars of fruit to the prairies. W. E.  Scott, deputy minister of .agriculture,  says it is difficult to estimate what the  whole output of the province will be,  but he expects that the/ will ship at  least 1,200 carloads, or over a million  pounds.  Prices will rule low this year. The  crop is very heavy in every line, prunes,  pears, cherries and early apples being  especially plentiful. If the weather  should prove dry during the next two  months Mr. Scott is of the opinion  that there will be some small fruit  where the orchards are not properly  cultivated, but where cultivation is  carried on the fruit should be unusually heavy. One difficulty at present  is that labor is so scarce that growers  are not thinning their fruit properly.  The result will be a large quantity of  small fruit, instead of the finer grade,  which demands higher prices.���Hedley Gazette. .

MINERAL ACT  EXDY MWLFRID 1AURIER  The Wife of Canada's Prime Minister  Lady Laurier, wife of Sir Wilfrid Ltturier, Prime Minister of th�� Dominion, la one of the best-known and moat esteemed women in Canada.  High social position does not create fineness of fibre, and nobility of character; it merely affords a broader field for their manifestation. The grace,  ease, kindness of heart, simplicity and charm that distinguish Lady Laurier  to-day are but the flowering of the natural characteristics that made her  beloved, when, in 1868, she married Wilfrid Laurier, the "silver-tongued"  young lawyer, struggling for recognition.  The daughter of Q. N. R. Lafontaine, Lady Laurier, was born in Montreal, and educated at the school of the Bon Pasteur and the Convent of  the Sacred Heart, and there became proficient in music. Her love of music  has made her a patron under whose kindly sympathy and substantial support a number -of her proteges are winning laurels in the world of music  to-day. Losing her mother at an early age, Lady Laurier was thrown into  the society of her future husband under romantic circumstances, which led  to their marriage. Then followed days of discouragement, watching and  waiting, and of hope deferred in their home at Arthabaskaville, where the  future Premier, then in delicate health, was .working hard for recognition  with the untiring sympathy, companionship and inspiration of his wife.  Lady Laurier has always accompanied her husband to Ottawa during  the Parliamentary sessions, as she does now in all his travels, for, "life is  too short." she says, "to be separated long." Her acquaintance with the  great public men of the world is large, for in the hospitable home of the  Prime^Mlnistcr the leaders in all lines of activity are always welcome. Her  days.&V busy ones, filled to the brim with social duties and her charitable  and philanthropic work. She is one of the Vice-Presidents of the National  Council of Women of Canada, and Honorary Vice-President of the Victorian  Order of Nurses, besides being active in personal charilies.  In'her, home, at Ottawa, Lady Laurier has a superb collnr-lion of piffn  and souvenirs presented by royalty and others���the coronation medal from  Queen Victoria, a gold snuff-box set with diamonds, a medal from Pone  Pius X.. a curious cup from tho Chinese Prince-Regent,-a golden kr>y from  T'vpr-vm'. nutnrraph letters nnd portraits and a hast of otl^r trnasnro=���  b'u !-hr> ohfriFfcc! most the magnificent, tiara of one hundred and seven tv-fi\<>  <7::ivno!vls m-c'.-eiierl \-y mom hers of tho Scmt?. of Canada.

Mr;-'-, ar- rr>- TVj.-rtir*- ��� -* ��-.���.���.,[.--��  PREFERS B, C,  The St. John Telegraph, commenting upon some observations, says that  it would prefer to see the young men  of New Brunswick go to British Columbia rather than to the United  States, but it urges them to remain at  home and develop theirown province.  To this advice no true Canadian will  take exception. We in British Columbia wish to see the West developed, but not at the expense of the  East. Our contemporary says that  thai- progress of its province is just  beginning. It looks for great things  to come .from a more thorough system of farming, from the development of its mineral resources, from  the'utilization of its water power and  from the more economical handling  of its forests. It points out what has  already been provided in the way of  railways, and what is to be the forthcoming from the Grand Trunk Pacific, the Canadian Northern and what  is known as the Valley Railway. We  are glad to see our contemporary in  such an optomistic spirit, and that he  is able to give good grounds for the  faith that is in it. All we have to add  is that if young New Brunswickers do  not take our contemporarie's advice  and stay at home, we hope they will  come to British Columbia.

"Arrah,  your riverence, saving your presence, there's a prayst," said he,  pointing to a milestone. "A  priest! Why do you call that. a  priest, Mike?" "Why, your riverence, 'tis at least like a prayst,  for it points to the road it never  goes itself."  DANGERS OF THE FLY  An anti-fly campaign has been  inaugurated. The house fly is a  pest that ought to be exterminated. The Ladies' Home Journal  says that it has been largely driven out of England.- because its  breeding places have been destroyed. The house fly breeds in  stables, in neglected places where  hodsehold refuse is thrown, in  garbage cans that are left open  and not properly cleansed, and so  on. Keep such places clean and  the house fly will become to a  great extent a thing of the past.  Here is a case iu which an ounce  of prevention is worth several  pounds of cure.

Unfortunately Kootenay is not  the only part of British Columbia  to be inconvenienced by the failure of the postoffice department  to meet the reasonable requirements of the peoplo in the matter of mail accommodation. The  principle seems to be to give the  public just as little as possible.  In a new country the postal service ought to be ahead of the requirements, instead of lagging a  decade behind them.

Labor is scarce in the Boundary  at present. Particularly experienced miners which are in great  demand.  Robt Keffer has returned from  Pullman college, Wash., to spend  his vacation with his parents at  Anaconda,  R. N. Green, a cattle buyer  from Toronto, who is making a  business visit to Greenwood, is  registered at the Imperial.  Don't think it is a fire when you  hear the alarm given at about 7  p. m Monday evening. It is only  the boys having a practice run.  The Oddfellows lodges of Phoenix and Grand Porks, unitedly,  will celebrate Dominion day by  an excursion by special train to  Christina lake.  The following people are registered at the Norden hotel: T.  Kingman and J2. Knight both  trom Michigan; Mrs. Radcliffe  wife of A. W. Radcliffe of Mother  Lode; D. Roy of the Jewell mine;  Jas Mellen of Grand Porks.  The following C, P. R. officials  visited Greenwood on Tuesday:  F; E. Busteed, general superintendent; H. Rendell, divisional  superintendent; J. C. McMullan,  legal adviser; C. S, Mos*, resident engineer; W. E. Knight,  chief clerk.  Negotiations are completed for  a new road from Phoenix to Central camp. This for Greenwood  may mean a black eye, as affirms  that all men for the property are  to be employed at Phoenix, aud  supplies purchased from there  also, and Greenwood cut out.  The C, P. R. is constructing a  new road bed from Phoenix to  Eholt and grading and track-laying under full swing This will  be a boon for the ore trains from  the Granby, Snowshoe, Jack Pot  aud other mines, as tbis ten miles  of the present one of the busiest  highways in the country.  J-. Patterson (or Pat as universally called) the C. P. R. agent  at Eholt, and Miss A. Robinson,  niece of Alex Robinson, of Grand  Forks, was married by Rev. M.  D. McKee, on Tuesday of last  week. The couple will take a  tour through the Rockies, Banff,  etc. Our warmest congratulations are tendered Pat and his  good wife.  A terrible accident occured at  Grand Forks on Saturday last,  when Wm. Keron driver of the  city team, whose horses became  unmanageable and bolted, throwing Keron to the ground in such  a manner as to bread his neck and  causing  instant  death.    He has  been for many years skating  rink manager, and filled tbat  position with, great credit. A  wife ancf children are deprived of  a good husband and father. Very  general sympathy is felt for them.  Archdeacon Beer will hold services in St. Jude's Anglican  church next Sunday, July 3rd,  morning and evening, at regular  hours.  Mr.    Eugene    Herrick,     fruit  rancher of Grand  Forks,   paid  a  business visit to Greenwood  and  Phoenix last week in the interest  of the Grand Forks Fruit Grower's association,    He was delight  ed with his reception by the mer  chants of Greenwood   and Phoenix, and the splendid  number of  orders for fruit he has booked up.  He estimates  that  it  will total  eleven or twelve cars  for summer  and   fall   delivery.    That   looks  good   for   tho Boundary production.  COMMUNICATION  QUEEN MOTHER'S FLAG  Since the death of King Edward, the royal standard was  flown over Buckingham palace in  honor of the queen mother, who  is still in residence there. As  the royal standard is flown only  for thc monarch, the fact that it  was used by the queen mother  was a source of considerable speculation. The only reason for  her use of tbe standard was that  there was no flag existing for  that rarity in Great Britain, a  dowager-queen consort. Now,  however, a flag has beeu specially  designed for her use and it will  be hoisted at the palace. It is  24 feet long and 12 feet deep and  is equally divided, tbe British  standard being on the left and  Danish standard on the right.  Editoh Boundary CkbkkTxmxs.  As you are aware, my claim to reside in Greenwood and prosecute my  business as hotelkeeper, etc., has been  turned down, and I will of necessity  be compelled to pull up stakes and  leave the town of Greenwood, - in  which I have resided for the past 15  years, and have yet to be informed of  any irregularity or black mark in any  respect against my character. To  show the public that I have not had  it all my own way, or all that I earned  was solid cream, I beg to quote the  following, taken from the city records  and properly vouched for as strictly  correct. From January 1, 1898, up  to January 15, 1910, I paid into the  city treasury,the sum of five thousand  nine hundred and twenty-nine dollars  and thirty-five cents.  I have staid with the town during  its many ups and downs, but the action of the license commissioners  makes that now an impossibility, and  I am very reluctantly forced to close  up my hotel and other business and  trek for a more congenial district.

IMPORTERS  GREENWOOD  MIDWAY & VERNON  RY,  NO MORE SALOONS  By a vote of 4 to 3 the city  council of Blaine, Wash., has refused to grant licenses for the  new year beginning July 1st.  Since the license was raised to  $1,000 a year, three years ago.  the town has had only four saloons. The council's action was  influenced by a petition with 480  signatures asking that the licenses be refused.  " Why do you have such enormously fat servant girls?" "Clever  idea of my wife's.

The following is from the Vancouver  World of June 20th:  I hope the government will insist that "justice be done, though  the heavens fall," to all having a  charge on this ill-fateStT scheme.  The merger into the Kittle River  Railway should allow every liability to be covered, and not evaded by paltry technicalities.  My son, a C. E., has a considerable charge for surveying the  line some five or six years ago,  and the disgraceful way in whica  his charges, and that of the poor  navvies, were evaded, was no  credit to the promoters. The  time has arrived to rectify this  gross injustice.  H. Goddard.  F. JAYNES  COPPER STREET. GREENWOOD  GOLD COIN  BUTTER  45G.  PER  POUND?  Something extra choice.
