An old account of lhe Post Intel-*  ligencer of Seattle, was submitted  to the council. It amputated to  $5.00 and covered a subscription  to the P.

After explaining that  the firemen who were to be on  duty at the Auditorium would be  there on business, the Fire Chief  modestly suggested that a little  paper and paint -wouldn't hurt  the apartments upstairs where  the fire boys sleep. This-would  cost from $60 to $70. The Fire  Chief will report again giving  further estimates.        ���  Th e followiu g accou nts were  ordered paid :  B. C.

The Assessor's return showed  a valuation of land at $573,580  and of improvements at $429,320.  It was then moved that the assessment be received as prepared  by the Assessor and that a Court  of Revision to hear complaints of  the City's assessment be held on  the lith ot May, 1908 at 10 a.m.  in the City Hall and that the  statutory notioe be published for  30 days in the Gazette and in a  local {paper; and also that the  Court consist of Mayor Bunting.

Death of W. J- Harber  The many friends of the late  W, J. Harber the first manager of  the Boundary Creek Times, learned only this week of his ideate  which occurred in Cumberland  County, England, on the 7th of  Janury last. Mr. Harber started  this paper with H. M. Lamb as  editor in September,* 1896, their  first issue appearing on the 12th  .of, th at month,,a.nd xcmaineoLwith  it until the fall of 1900, when he  returned to England because of  the failing health of his , father,  who died only a week after Mr.  Harber's own death. Deceased  was 54 years of agd and came to  British Columbia iu 1889. He  worked first in Victoria and for  some time was part owner of the  Vernon News with Angus K.  Stuart. He was well knowji  throughout the Okanagan district.  In Greenwood he was one of the  charter members of the Typographical Union and was a very  enthusiastic member of Boundary  .Val*ev Lodge No. 38, I.O.O.F.  He was of a quiet and retiring  disposition, devoted to his home,  and bis friends, all of whom will  sincerely regret to hear of his demise. Mrs. Harber survives him.  His father who died a week later  was 90 years of age.  ADJOURNED MEETING.  The first annual meeting of the  Diamond Fraction and Texas Development Syndicate was convened on Wednesday evening. April  1st. The Diamond Texas has  been making good showing in  ground for some time past but  the ore has not yet been reached  as had been expected. The meeting was adjourned till Friday  evening to allow for a careful examination of the property.  The subject under discussion  at the St. Columba Young Men's  Club last night at their semimonthly meeting, was "Which  is the better field for a young  man to make a success in life,  Eastern Canada or Western Canada ?V After an interesting and  animated discu3sion the verdict  was given in favor of the West,  although "that airt" got many  hard knocks,  No. 30  ACCIDENT  ENDS FATALLY  Sad Death of Richard E.Bradbury on Wednesday Last-  Funeral Tomorrow  On Wednesday afternoon, shortly  after three o'clock, Richard E  Bradbury, a young Englishman  aged 23 years, was instantly killed  by being pinned by a falling tree  sgainst the ptump'of a tree he had  fallen just previously. The accident occurred on the upper bank  of the first switchback on the  Phoenix road within half a mile of  town. Richard Bradbury with his  three brothers and Ed Spooner had  gone up the hill to cut pome firewood, half with the idea of getting  something to do. They had fallen  one tree, the st.imp of which was  less than four feet from the one  which caused the fatalty. When  tbe second tree was falling it struck  a boulder and turning back caught  the unfortunate man, killing him.  Deceased was the youngest of  four brothers in this country. The  other three, Horace. Bert and  Fred, were with him at the time of  his death. He had comte to British  Columbia first about three years  ago firom bis home .at! Chester  House. Brownhills, Wallsall, Staffordshire in England. Though a  bricklayer by trade, he had worked  at the Providence mine and for the  B. C. 'Copper Co., and until he left  for a visit to his home in England  laBt fall, was a member of Greenwood Miners' Union. He returned  frdm~" England���only^---about two-  months ago.. He was a member of  the Methodist church and while in  the city had been active iu its  work. He was : very highly re-  spected,  The funeral will-be held on Saturday at 12 o'clock, noon, from  the residence of Geo. P. White,  Gold-street. Services will be in  charge of Bev. F. J. Rutherford,  who will conduct a memorial service for the young man in the  Methodist church a week from  next Sunday evening, Mr. Rutherford being absent in Nelson this  coming Sunday. The brothers of  the deceased have the very sincere  sympathy of the entire community  in their bereavement.  The members of the Greenwood  Miners' Union will attend the  funeral of the late Richard E.  Bradbury tomorrow at 12 o'clock  noon.  Case Dismissed  ���On Tuesday afternoon a gun  play case came up before Stipendiary Magistrate McMynn. All  parties to the action came from  between Boundary Falls and Midway. A charge of poiuiing a  gun was brought by Joseph Car-  on against Alfred Clarke, J. P.  McLeod appearing for the plaintiff and J. D. Spence for the defendant. Caron's testimony was  contradicted by witnesses upholding Clarke and the case was dismissed with costs. Counter charges of assault and trespass were  withdrawn.  On April 1st, W. G. Gaunce,  who has beeu in partnership  with E.T. Wickwire of this city  for some years, went into business  in Real Estate, Insurance, etc.,  in Victoria in company with O.J.  Griffith, formerly of Robertson &  Griffith, 106 Government Street,  Victoria. It is not stated that  Mr. Gaunce intends to leave  the Boundary permanently but  will probably remain at the coast  for the next year.  The Phoenix Pioneer Changes Hands.  The Phoenix Pioneer, which has  since the 18th of November, 1899,  been under the guiding hand of  W. B. Willcox, was sold on Wednesday of this week to T. Alfred  Love, late of Hedley and Vancouver and formerly of Winnipeg  and other places in Manitoba. Mr.  Love is, according to the retiring  editor of the Pioneer, the only  kind of a man who will make a  poeceRs of a weekly newspaper in  this country, a practical printer,  a man who knows the business  from the ground up. Mr. Love  was at one time owner of the Mor-  den  Chronicle,  at  Morden, Man.  Although it has been understood  for some time that Mr. Wilcox was  anxious to be relieved from the  arduous duties of editor of a mining camp weekly, the Bale (of tbe  Pioneer at the time of the Granby's  big records, came somewhat as a  snrprise. Mr. Wilcox who has a  paper this week to edit is not communicative as to what his intentions are.  " You may say I am not going  to Prince Rupert," he said to The  Tim eg yesterday. " I expect to be  around Phoenix until about-May  1st. anyway."  I If You Wish  to Buy  DUNCAN ROSS HONORED  Dinner Tendered Him on Eve of  Departure for West���Coming-  to Liberal Convention at  Vernon April 14th!  Ottawa, March 30.���Duncan  Ross, M.P., for Yale-Cariboo was  tendered a dinner here tonight  by his British Columbia friends  on the eve of his departure to attend the Liberal convention at  Vernon, B.C., which will be held  on April 14,;*to nominate-a candidate for the next election.

Jardine, Ralph Smith,  John Tolmie, J. L. Retallack,  Mayor Kearney, New Westminster; Wm. Mackenzie, A. B. Cur-  rie, R. R. Bruce, and others.  The dinner was-a great success,  testifying to Duncan Ross'popularity.  The above was taken, from the  Nelson Daily News of Tuesday  last.  Funeral of Mrs. Reese.  The funeral of the late Mrs.  King Reese took place on Tuesday afternoon at one o'clock.  The service at the grave was read  by Rev. M. D. McKee and perhaps the longest cortege ever  seen in Greenwood showed the  very great esteem in which the  deceased was held. Interment  was at Greenwood cemetery,  The pall bearers were Mayor H.  Bunting, C. J. Wilson, D. C. McRae, E. H. Mortimer, V. M. Sher-  bino and J. L. Coles.  Yearly Customs Returns.

McDERMff) &  McHARDY,  NELSON.       ���       B.C.  Death of C. E. Miller.  The fiscal year in the customs  department ended with  March 31,  and though the returns for t.ie year  cover practically only about seven  months, they amount to a very respectable figure.    Since the shutdown of the smelters the customs  collections have fallen off about 75  per cent.    The   collections  for the  fiscal   pear  ending   March  31 sb at  the port of  Greeuwood  are ��45,-  454.G9,   and   for   inland reveuue  815,304.76, making the total collections for the Greenwood office  $G0,769.45.  The intelligence of the death of  C. E. Miller, owner of the block in  which the store of P. W. George &  Co.  is situated,  came as a very  great shock to his many friends in  Greenwood on Friday last.   Mr.  Miller came to Greenwood in its  early days and was a partner in  the Wallace-Miller Co, which had  the store now conducted by P. W.  Gearge&Cp.    On the dissolution  of. the partnership, Mr. Miller took  over the block in part payment of  his interest in the firm.    Last fall  he spent some months here installing a heating system and making  several   other changes.    His lasfe  visit was only about six weeks ago.  His death occurred at 11:15 on  Thursday evening a week ago. In  the afternoon he had been working  in his garden and had strained the  nerves of the heart. About 5:30  he called a physician, who was nn-  able to do anything to prolong life  more than a few hours.  The deceased was about 45 years  of age-and came to the West from  Western Ontario many years ago,  going to Moose Jaw first and later  ou to Brandon, where he was in  the dr}r goo��ls business for some  time. In 1896 he came to Nelson  and for Beveral years conducted a  men's furnishing biisinf-s on  Baker street there with J. H. Wallace, retiring from that business  about three years ago. Mr. Miller  was the owner of a tine ranch on  the north shore opposite 5-Mile  point and also considerable real  estate. During his 12 years residence in Nelson Mr. Miller took  an active part iu business affairs,  -itud was an enthusiastic launcu-  [���i.iii.  A very large number of friends  attended the funeral of the deceased in Nelson on Saturday afternoon, the ceremonies being conducted by Rev. J. T. Ferguson,  Presbyteriau minister. Mm. Miller will have the sincere sympathy  of many friends in Greenwood iu  1 her bereavement.

APRIL 3. 1908  ical advantage above the welfare  either of country or of empire.  Brit^h Columbia wants the exclusion of the Oriental. It has  not been found possible to mix  Jap or Hindu with our population. They are not of value to us  because we cannot have with  them the desideratum of all nation ��� builders ��� a homogeneous  country. Yet British Columbia  will undoubtedly be better off ten  years from today if while excluding these people or preventing  their ingress from passing a negligible minimum, she is able to  retain their markets for our products. In every step, the Laurier  Government has shown very creditable appreciation not only of the  a  difficulty and importance   but of  the possibilities of the situation.  It is difficult to regard the reappearance of Hon. Clifford Sifton with another of his direct  and vigorous speeches with other  than pleasure, Whatever his  tailings, Mr. Sifton has always  ignored the petty side of politics  and when he has spoken in the  House or on the hustings, his has  always been the definite, unequivocal statement of a man who had  something for the advancement  of the country to talk about.  The part of his latest speech that  will attract most attention is devoted to a reform of the public  service. The abolition of the  patronage svstem is tbe keynote of this reform. There is nothing truer than his statement, surprising to some people as it may  be, that "It is an entire mistake  if anybody supposes that dealings  with these questions (of patronage, etc.), is of any advantage  to the party in power and it is no  political advantage to the member of parliament." The hope  and the sentiment expressed by  Mr. Sifton will be general that  "Canada will outgrow this system pretty soon and that the people of Canada will demand that  it be changed."  It is hardly necessary to say  that Mr. Sifton discussed this  question as a matter of privilege,  it being already on the order  paper of the House in the name  of the Hon. the Minister of Railways and Canals. Hon. Geo. P.  Graham.  An engraving of the first load  of lumber taken into the town of  Camrose. Alberta, is found in tbe.  Canadian Magazine this week.  Camrose is the town that last  year spent $1,700 in advertising.  As a result it is now known from  one end of the Dominion to the  other. It pays to keep your town  before the public.  Mr. B. P. Smith was responsible  "Would you advise that Mr.  Smith be removed from his position?" Mr. Brodeur asked. The  point of this is that Mr. Smith's  politics and Dr. Sproule's are of  the same stripe. The worthy  doctor shied at once and nothing  coherent could be obtained from  him in regard to it.  The Opposition in this as in  everything else pointing to good  government have taken the insane  position that they only oppose���  obstruct. And in the face of this.  Hon. Mr. Brodeur deserves double  credit for every effort tie makes  to��relieve his department of brushwood and the government has  earned the congratulation of the  Canadian people by having the  matter thoroughly inquired into  by a vigorous and non-partizan  commission. By first thoroughly  advising the entire people of any  inaccuracies or faults in administrations seems the only way under  the party system of government  of accomplishing the removal of  the people responsible for these  things. The Government deserves  every encouragement in its policy  to reform the Civil Service and we  have faith enough in the people  of Canada yet, to think that  when such a question is put to  them in a straightforward way,  their sympathies will be wi+h the  Government in this work.  ���  of the Dominion to know the civil service from the inside.  Mr. Courtney is almost seventy years of age, and a member of  an old Cornish family. His brother, well known in British politics  as Mr. Leonard Courtney, now  Lord Courtney of Pen with, -was  one of Mr. Gladstone's associates  in the day8 before the Home Rule  split.  INDIVIDUALITIES.  "This   extremely  difficult, intricate  and   possibly   dangerous  sitiuation"���these are  the words  used   by   the   Right Hon. John  Morley, Secretarv   of   State   for  India, in   describing   the Hindu  problem on   British   Columbia's  Pacific coast.    Coming from Mr.  Morley, who is one of the sanest,  most   keenly intellectual men  in  Great Britain they demand attention. From everyone interested in  the welfare of his country this immigration problem demands that  consideration   which he gives to  things most vitally affecting his  own most sacred interests.     The  making of this province a   place  which shall be the home of everything   that   seems   to bim to be  good ought to be felt as a personal duty by every elector���by every  person who takes from it his sustenance.    Appeals, simply to prejudice such as we haye heard so  often in this last six months   are  certainly   anything   but in   line  with a desire to make   the   province   prosperous.      They   have  served only, as they were intended, to increase the   difficulty and  the complexity of the problem the  Government   at   Ottawa   had to  handle. They have been the acts  of men who prefer a slight polit-  The abominable procedure under which a man who has had  rights of citizenship in another  province of the Dominion can live  thirteen months in British Columbia and still be refused a vote  is being done away with by the  Dominion Government. And because it touches the Tory Preserve  Pot, the Vancouver Province  must set up a wild cry that independent voters are to be sandbagged. The Conservative party in  the Province must be al its wit's  end when it has to use such marked perversions of the truth to  make political capital. The system the Government is introducing in Manitoba and British Columbia is iu force in the other provinces and gives uniform satisfaction. It is manifestly ridiculously unfair that a man who entered the province on October 1st  last and who was Canadian born  and had every claim to the rights  of citizenship in the Dominion  should have no vote at an election  to be held in November this year  ���thirteen months afterward.  The truth of the matter is that it  is the B.C. system that has been  so stiff that it disfranchised men  who had a right to vote. The  measure is an excellent one.  The Report of the Royal  Commission to enquire into   tbe conditions of the Civil   Service will  despite a few glaring inaccuracies  .pointed out by Hon. L.P. Brodeur  in reference to his  own   department, do a great deal   of   good.  At present a Minister entering a  department inefficiently organized  is put in a most   difficult, and almost hopeless position.    To   dismiss any officials in the service,  will almost certainly bring upon  him torrents of abuse and   ridiculously absurd but  none the less  damaging villification from   his  opponents iu politics.    In the department of Hon Mr. Brodeur we  have  a striking example of this.  His department is officered  very  largely, by men appointed under  the Conservative regime.   In the  report   brought   forward,   it   is  shown that these  men, in  some  cases,have been unfaithful not so  much to Mr. Brodeur as to his predecessors in the   department. Sir  Louis Davies and   the Hon. Mr.  Prefontaine.    Rather than disavow responsibility for the  faults  in the administration pf his* predecessors, Mr. Brodeur.has   patiently bore a great deal of blame.  Mr. Brodeur's own course in   the  department is not under criticism.  He has asked for a  specific   and  thorough inquiry into his department which will enable   him   to  carry'out the difficult   policy   he  has already undertaken of   thoroughly organizing it.  The help that the opposition  will give the Minister in removing these fossilized servants of  their own political stipe was illustrated well in the debate following the presentation of the  report. Dr. Sproule, the head of  the Orange Order and a member  of cabinet rank in the Conservative party was attacking some  piece of administration for which  Fanny Crosbj*, the writer of so  many beautiful hymns celebrated  her 88th birthday on Tuesday  week. She is now living at  Bridgeport, Conn.  So consistent has been the attitude of Sir Wilfrid Laurier since  the Liberal government came into power that whenever any reflection is cast upon any of his  ministers by any reputable party,  the public expects the Premier to  demand as soon as is just to the  minister, the latter's resignation.  Sir Wilfrid is the only Prime  Minister in the last quarter of a  century of whom that could be  said.  Herbert H. Asquitb, who has  been leading the Government  party in the British House of  Commons is not only a comparatively young man being only 56,  but comes of a stock distinctly  commercial. His father was a  manufacturer in a small way at  Morley in Yorkshire. His success is purely of his own making  and the reward of merit. His  wife is one of the most brilliant  women in London, ia many ways  The Chairman of the Civil Service Commission which has just  handed in a most vigorous report  is perhaps better known by name  than any other civil servant in  America. On millions of Dominion Notes appears the signature  of J. M. Courtney for he held the  office of Deputy Minister of Finance for 30 years. His service to  Canada goes back to the days of  Confederation, and from 1869 till  1878 he was Assistant Secretary  of the Treasury Board.

The Star says:  "Peck is making a pilgrimage  of the country in the  interest of  science, etc., and incidentally to  aize up the progress of the V. V.  & E. and to renew old   acquaintances.

Dickason,  Chicago,president of the Crescent  Mines, Limited, advised the stopping of work in the Crescent mine,  to awai-t further instructions by  letter. Accordingly the work  was stopped on Wednesday night  of this week. For the past month  Manager Feeney has been stoping at about the 120 foot level  and it is thought that perhaps  the directors are ready now to advise work which will ultimately  lead to operations oa a much larger scale. So far however defin-  i<e instructions have not yet been  received by the management here  and they are not able to state anything as to the future policy of  the Company.  Former Greenwood' People  The difficulties ot the Marys-  ville smelter of the Sullivan Mining company were brought to a  head last week by the seizure of  the smelter at Marysville, at the  instance of E. F. Mackey, cashier,  and formerly stenographer with the  B. C. Copper Co, at Greenwood.  Until a conple of months ago Mr.  Mackay was in the Sullivan company's offices at Spokane. About  that time Le was sent to tbe Marysville office. The following dispatch explains :  Spokane, March 26.���A dispatch from Cranbrook, B. C, says:  Deputy Sheriff F. R. Morrison has  seized the Sullivan smelter at  Marysville and the mine and mine  equipment at Kimberley, under  execution and judgments upon the  suit of E. T. Mackay,, formerly  cashier at the smelter, for $872,  and H. W. Newton for 8785.  The amounts covered by the executions represent iu both cases  amalgamation** of various debts  due by the company to certain of  its workmen who had received np  pay for about two. months previous  to the closing down of the property.  When the hands were laid oS at  the mine they received no time  checks but mere written acknowledgements for the time they had  worked without wages.  Ibis understood, however, that  the annual meeting of the company held later in Spokane settled  the difficulty.  AT THE CHURCHES  Anglican���St. Jude's. Rev. John  Leech-Porter, B. D., pastor.
