In addition to the already large  membership, the following were  elected: Duncan Ross, M.P., D.  C. McRae, James Cameron, E.  Parry, Harry Shafer,J. D. Spence  and Dr. H. S. Simmons.  In the correspondence reported  was a letter from James Stephens  a blacksmith from Toronto, asking for information about his  trade in Greenwood. The secretary was instructed to supply the  information.  More railway regulation was  desired by the Canadian Manufacturer's Association who were  asking f6r a general ���eppeal to  the Railway Commission for simpler bills of lading. Messrs.|Huu-  ter, Russel, and the Secretary  were made a committee to take  appropriate action.  The Guelph Board of Trade  wanted tbe same measures taken  to prevent railroads from raising  their freight and cartage rates  without givine* the statutory notice. The Board was in svitinathv  jwith the principle and instructed  the secretary tn communicate its  endorsation nf the resolution nf  the Guelph, Ont., bnard to the  Railway- Commission. ..���...   ,,;._;,  The Publicity Committee recommended the issuance nf a pamphlet advertising particularly the  timber, fruit ranching and eener-  al industrial possibilities of this  district. As this pamphlet to be  issued to the best advantage must  be out early, it was recommended  that it be ready ' for circulation  by May 15th. The Committee  was instructed to continue its  work and was given power to take  all necessary steps subject to the  approval of the Council.  Building1 the Great Northern or  V. V. & E. railway from Denoro  to Midway came   up   under   the  head of unfinished   business, the  Council of the Board having   recommended    its    consideration..  Duncan Mcintosh   reported that  he bad found out  that we could  not   compel   its   building  until  1910. Duncan Ross, M.P., in continuing- the discussion referred to  the public meeting held last October and said that the   memorial  prepared by  the   committee   appointed had been received by Sir  Wilfrid Laurier, who after   consultation   with   Mr.   Ross    had  written Mr. J. J. Hill forwarding  the memorial and saving that he  considered   the   request   of   the  Greenwood people  very reasonable.   Mr. Hill promised that the  matter would receive his personal  consideration   and   had   gone to  New York to consult the directors  of the   Smelter companies   operating in this district. The indt cements for the Great Northern to  build after the smelters had closed  were not so great as   before   and  for the present and   during   the  time iu which conditions remained as they were, Mr. Ross did not  see that anything   of   particular  importance could   be   done.    At  present any effective action must  come from within  and not   from  without.  Referring to Mr. Mcintosh's remark, Mr. Ross said that it was  rather   a   nice   point  as to how  much control we had over this  kind of legislation. The Great  Northern had been given permission to cross the border .only at  Bridesville and Chopaka. Permission to cross at any other  point was never giyen them either  by the Government of Canada or  the Board of Railway Commissioners. Under the circumstances  they are crossing at Midway  without authority. It would seem  to be possible for the Government  to say "you can't cross there until you fulfill your contract."  This however would involve complications in the Similkameen and  delays in constructing the line  there. However Mr. Ross stated  that he had taken the position,  was maintaining it, and intended  to maintain it while representing  this riding, that no further privileges would be granted until the  railway showed bona fide intention of fulfilling this part of their  contract.  Discrim1'nation against Canadian points on this line'was again  introduced and Mr. Ross stated  that in Ontario, and on the Michigan Central Railway,]the Railway Commission had secured for  residents of the Western peninsula, the same advantages as were  the Canadian people. The Railway Commission would not stand  for discrimination.  No. 31  FIGHTING THE  LOBBYISTS  Remarkable Record of Duncan Ross in Railway Com-  mittee-A Memorable Fight  Mr. Taylor Will Come  That the Department of Fisheries has been able to grant the  request of the. Kettle River Fish  and Game Protection Association  to.have the expert visit this section will be good, "news to the  members of the Association.  The following letter to Mr. McRae, Secretary of the Ast-oriati'-'ft  from Duncan Ross, M.P., will explain :  Dear Sir,���In further reference  to your telegram asking that Mr.  Taylor who is visiting the Slocan  should go to the Boundary with j  a view to ascertaining the best  method of stocking Long Lake,  I beg to state that the Hon. the  Minister of Marine and Fisheries  has issued instructions to Mr.  Taylor to visit the Boundary and  consult the officers of your Association in reference to your wishes  in this matter.  Yours very truly.  Duncan Ross.  Mr. K. N. Keese wishes to thank  the many friends who both during  the illness of his wife and the time  of his bereavement showed constant evidence of their friendship  and kindness. Tbe number to  whom the family feel under obligation is too great to attempt to reach  them personally.  At the adjourned meeting of the  Diinond-Texae Syndicate on Friday night last all the officers were  reelectfd. The committee appointed to examine the property reported  favorably and the meeting decided  to continue the drift on tbe 115-  foot level. lb is understood that  the syndicate also have other plans  in view which will make returns  from the property very satisfactory  in the future.

The smelter properties are being  invaded by all sorts and conditions  now-a-days. Even a centipede  was found on the premises this  week, It is very uncommon to  find one of these creatures so far  north. It measured 2J inches in  length and was seen by Master  Mechanic Brandon.  The Bradbury brothers wish to  thank the maiy friends who were  kindness itself to them in their  recent bereavement. |  One of his constituents coming  the other day from New Brunswick stated that in the fish-eating  country, the member for Yale  Cariboo was better known than  auy other of the Pacific Coast  members. To have made a reputation as a parliamentarian in  one term is not a usual achievement iu Canadian politics. In  the Nelson News a few davs ago  the following article appeared  which will give to Mr. Ross' constituents one of the reasons why  he is favorably known even to  the Atlantic coast :   '  This month will see the candidates of both parties nominated  in the adjoining constituency of  Yale-Cariboo. It is practically  a foregone conclusion that Duncan. Ross, the sitting member,  will receive tbe unanimous renom-  ination of the liberal party. For  the conservative nomination there  is likely to be a contest between  Price Ellison, M.P.P. of Vernon  and the defeated conservative  candidate, in the last Dominion  election, Martin Burrell,of Grand  Forks, both of them well known  and either of whom would be  worthy representatives of the  tory party.  O f course it is too much to expect  that the conservatives   of   Yale-  Cariboo should retrain   from opposing Mr. Duncan Ross  in   the  coming camgaign,although there  are very excellent   reasons   why  this  mark   of   approval   of   his  course at Ottawa should be extended   to   him.    The   splendid  fight he put up,, in the interest  of bis constituency, against very  heavy odds,, and   when still but  a new and inexperienced member  of parliament, for the V.   V.   &  E. charter, must slill be fresh  in  the  minds of his   constituents, a  fight that at the time earned for  him the warmest approval of his  political   opponents   within   the  constituency of Yale Cariboo, expressed by resolutions of conservative organizations   and   other  unmistakable marks of confidence  It will be remembered  that in  the campaign prior to the election  of 1904, Duncan Ross, the liberal  nominee, promised   that   iu   the  event of his being chosen to represent that constiuency at Ottawa, [  he would do his utmost to secure  transportation facilities  for  the  southern section of  the   district.  At that time the Great Northern  Railway Company were   anxious  to build into   the   Similkameen,  and were applying for the necessary legislation, ibut making no  request   tor   e.ither   cash or land  subsidies.    This request was bitterly   opposed   by the   Canadian  Pacific Railway  company, whose  opposition   up   to  that time had  proved an effective barrier to  the  transportation hopes of the   residents of the Similkameen district.  Immediately after his  election  Duncan Ross   set   about   giving  effect to his pre-election   pledge.  He went to New York, personally  interviewed J. J. Hill and obtained assurances from him tbat   the  Great Northern would   build the  desired road if it sscured the necessary legislation.    Duncan Robs  thereupon agreed to take charge  wa will ever be memorable in tbe  annals of the railway committee.  Mr. Duncan Ross, a new member  tor parliament,   inexperienced  in  tbe procedure of the railway committee, found himself opposed by  ���he strongest   railway lobby ever  organized at tbe Dominion capital.    Every resource of the greatest corporation   in   Canada   was  brought   to   bear   against    this  young member's efforts, in   order  that the C.P.R.  might continue  its monoply in  Southern  British  Columbia.  Mr. Duncan Ross'presentation of the case for relief of  Southern British   Columbia   was  conceded to be one of the   ablest  arguments ever presented  to the  railway committee ; this verdict  was expressed by old parliamentary   hands-,   experienced   uews-1  papermen, and by trained  lobbyists, who had spent years in   the  work of the railway   committee.  The fight was kept up in railway  committee for three   months, the  C.P.R. being determined to defeat  the measure, a contest unequalled  in the history oi   railway   legislation in Canada.  If You Wish  to Buy  of the company's bill and  to  endeavor to get it through the railway committee.  The fight that ensued at Otta-  With the loyal assistance of his  fellow British Columbia members  Duncan Ross organised the forces  friendly to the relief   of   British  Columbia and finally   triumphed  but not until the Canadian Pacific  Railway Company had lined  up  practically the entire Conservative party in their interests, forcing a straight issue between   the  Liberals and the Conservatives as  to whether or not British  Columbia should have   competition   in  railways.    Happily   the   liberal  ! view prevailed, a result in a very,  large measure due to the bold and  indefatigable efforts   of   Duncan  Ross, the newly elected  member  for Yale-Cariboo, wbo could neither be threatened   or  bull-dozed  out of the course he felt in honor  bound to pursue to advance   and  safeguard the interest of his constituents.  In making this splendid   fight  and in achieving so  great a   victory, Duncan Ross had not   only  accomplished a very big thing for  his constituents, but he had  rendered a service of national importance.    Iu effect   he   broke   the  back of the C.P.R. lobby at Ottawa, which up to that   time   had  exercised  practically   autocratic  powers and had succeeded in   defeating every   railway   measure  that the company believed clashed  with their iuterestf.    Since   this  historic fight railway legislation,  asking for no special   privileges,  has been passed without effective  opposition from any of   the   big  raliway corporations.  It is only right and proper .that  this matter should receive the earnest consideration of the electors  of Yale Cariboo at this juncture.  Unfortunately in Canadian politics the habit is all too common  of decrying the work of political  opponents. Perusal of some of  the tory sheets in this province  would lead tha uninformed to  form the impression that Duncac  Ross had neither done anything  for his constuency nor *akeu any  effective part in the work of parliament. It would be a simple  matter for us to enlarge greatly  upon tbe work done by Mr. Ross,  but at this moment we do not consider such a course necessary.  His constituents know of the good  work he has done. His former  supporters are at his back to a  man today aad they will give unmistakable evidence of this confidence at Vernon ou Tuesday, April 14, when the libsral nomination convention takes place.  5 Wire us for Quotations  f  Our facilities for bujung  Dominion,, B.C., or  Granby Stocks  on the curb in New York  or Bostonare unequalled  Even our competitors  acknowledge that we  can buy these stocks  cheaper than they.

McDERMID &  McHARDY,  NELSON,  B.C  *  Love-Holdsworth.  An   interesting   ceremony   was  performed last night in tfc.e Eresby;_  terian church  by the Rev. M. D.  McKee when Daniel Stirrat Love,  who   came  to    Greenwood   some  months ago from tbe land of the  Heather, and Miss Winnifred Leila  Holdsworth of Helensburgh, Renfrewshire,  Scotland, were   united  in marriage.    The   bride arrived  on yesterday's train,   coming   all  the way over the sea and across a-  continent to marry the man. of her  choice.     The   ceremony   was   attended by a large number of Greenwood acquaintances of the groom,  some of whom,  together with  the  bride and groom, were entertained  at a   happy   dinner   party at the  manse immediately after the  ceremony.    The   Young  Men's  Club,  Mr.'Love's Bible class and various  other classes and  people connected  with the Sunday School of the Kirk  presented the  happy  couple  with  some rugs, a silver dinner set and  other presents.  Mr. and Mrs. Love will remain  in Greenwood at least for a few  days before making definite plans  for the future.  What about a summer weekly  half-holiday in Greenwood? Now  that the gophers are coining out  and the fi-ming is coming up and  the season is coming along when  the Greenwood concert orchestra  will waut to practice outside���  what's tbe matter with a half  holiday to let tbe boys in the  stores out of a week day, k > that  they can fulfill their anxious desire to go to church ou Sunday.

If you want  the world to know what you are,  you must not only have the' material to fill the guns, but must  also discharge them.  The Victoria Colonist says it  is a little premature to talk of  Sir Wilfrid Laurier as a "has-  been." Sir John Macdonald was  seventy-six at the time of his  death. Aud with Lord Strathcona projecting all-red-lines at  eighty.eight, Sir Mackenzie Bow-  ell at eighty-five discussing questions of tbe day with force and  aggressiveness, Senator Scott  laughing at the idea of going on  tbe shelf at eighty-three, and Sir  Charles Tupper at eighty-seven  still with us, the idea of waning  influence, attached by. opposition  centres to Sir Wilfrid Laurier is  just ridiculous. It is not too  [much to say that Sir Wilfrid's  place in tbe hearts of the Canadian people is increasing in importance every day.  decessors in office had paid more  attention to politics than to the  details of their department. His  deputy was old and apparently  unable to keep his department up-  to**date. Mr. Brodeur probably  erred in being too lenient with  officials who had been in the service since the days of the Conservative regime, and hesitated to  take such action as would have  left him open to thecharge of dismissing Conservative appointees  for the purpose of substituting  Liberal appointees. If the Civi1  Service had been on a proper basis, Mr. Brodeur might have avoided much of the trouble which bas  come to him. Without a Civil  Service Commission to see th at  the employees in each department  are doing their work properly, a  Cabinet Minister is in au awkward position. If he dismisses  employees, he is condemned for  partianship ; if he does not dismiss, he is likely to have inefficiency in his department.  J. T. BEATTIE, Manager  Greenwood  INDIVIDUALITIES.

The importance of  this province in the Confederation  is increasing year by vear. It is  impossible that its voice will be  or remain either unheard or unheeded. Talk of reversion to the  Status of a Crown colony in order  to increase its importance or power is absurd. It reminds one of  a town robbed of all its boosters,  a town where every business man  instead of fighting progressively  and on a large scale to extend  his business, continually complains of lack of patronage and  becomes steadily more hopeless.  We all know that the fate of  such a place is death, both certain  and disagreeable. Let us be reas?  onable in our judgement of what  our province deserves, let us be  firm in demanding its just rewards, and let us play the game  at all hazards and be men and  the future of British Columbia in  the federation will not only be  equal to that of any other province  but the life of her people will be  touched with a light and with an  aggressive and progressive spirit  thatjwill make her the best known,  most prosperous and certainly the  most influential of the provinces  of the Dominion.  Rudyard Kipling, the poet of  yesterday, is the way in which  the poet of England's Imperialism is styled by a French writer.  Kipling's letters to Collier's while  the contain a number of very  pregnant hints are not meeting  with very general appreciation in  Canada.  CONSTRUCTION ON THE G.T.P.  Foley, Welch & Stewart Take Contract in Hand in Went Way  The point of view of some people is very hard to appreciate. A  Vancouver paper which is of that  type of independence that rather  than try to discuss-political questions free from the animus of  party it lets itself swing like the  pendulum of a great clock laboriously from one extreme to the  other, is repeating some weak  sillv talk about the danger of  British Columbia's reversion to  the status of a Crown colony.  How such an action could bring  any benefit to this province is not  shown neither is it within the  comprehension of an ordinary  thinking man. Certainly this is  not the day of small and petty  states founded upon and fenced  around with small jealousies and  inconsequent grievances. It is not  even true that an individual can  serve best his own interests by  being a sorehead.  As for British Columbia, it is  probable that there are questions  on vhich the East and British  Columbia differ. It is certainly  not true that these differences are  at the present time of any appreciable importance. But supposing  they were, what's the sense of  such shambling talk as this ? If  British Columbia is not getting  Did you ever stop to think that  they means you ?-  you're knocking.  ^hat is when  When George Stephenson was  projecting his first railway, he  was opposed by men who declared  that railways oould not be allowed to run through the country,  because they would kill the cattle. This sort of spirit is a good  thing to kill.  The visit of an officer of the  Fisheries Department to examine  and report on the cultivation of  fish in the waters of Boundary  Creek and the Kettle River District is a splendid thirlg. The resources of a country such as its  fish and game are of inestimable  value and every effort made to  protect and encourage the supply  is significant. Such details in  the administration of affairs are  often overlooked. That they are  not so overlooked is one of the  marks of an efficient government.  The Canadian Courier,the independent weekly magazine which  is rapidly coming to a first place  in its kind of papers and which  will eventually displace in Canada, Collier's, and the Saturday  Evening Post has the following  sketch of Hon. Mr. Brodeur in it's  current issue which is so evidently  in line with what we had to say  on the same subject in our last  issue, that we have no apology to  make for its reproduction iu full:  "Hon. Mr. Brodeur, who has  been made the subject of repeated  attacks during the present session  by the Dominion Opposition, has  been a Minister since 1904. Previous to that he was Speaker of  the House. After being Minister  of Inland Revenue for about two  years, he became Minister of Marine and Fisheries on the death of  Hon. Raymond Prefontaine.  Mr. Brodeur was born at Bel-  oeil, P.Q.,in 1862, and graduated  LL.B. from Laval in 1884. Like  so many of the Quebec- barristers  he has dabbled in journalism,and  previous to his election to the  House, he was editor of Le Soir,  Montreal.  As Speaker and as Minister of  Iulaud Revenue, Mr. Brodeur  made a good impression. Asa  member of the Tariff Commission  which went about the country investigating commercial condiiions  he increased his reputation.  When he went to the Imperial  Conference, he seemed to have  reached the front rank of Canadian statesmen.    It is, therefore,  week, and will be shipped North  in Canadian steamers. The transportation of our outfit will require about 500 cars. The plant  and equipment will comprise  thousands of dump cars, graders,  scrapers, steam drills, derricks  and about 600 horses. The cost  of transportation of the outfit  west of Vancouver will be at least  $200,000."  The construction of the Pacific  section is said to be the most cost  ly on the whole route between the  Atlantic and Pacific shores of the  coutinent. Where the line strikes  the Skeena River, ten miles eastward from Prince Rupert, the  whole road bed will have to be  blasted out of solid rock, and tbe  road will cling to the perpendicular steeps like a projecting balcony.

Stewart, whose firm.Fol-  ey, Welch and Stewart, contractors, have contracts on. the G.T.P.  aggregating an expenditure of  approximately ten millions of dollars interviewed in Vancouver on  Saturday last said a good many  things pleasant to hear. His  firm will employ between five and  six thousand men on this work  which will last nearly two years.  As preference is to be given to  white labor, every Anglo-Saxon  in British Columbia who wants  to work will have unlimited op'  portunity for employment and, as  the work is so extensive, range. I  will be found, for every class of  labor.  The work to be immediately  undertaken is the construction of  the 100-mile section of the road  from Prince Rupert to Kitsilas  Canyon and the construction of  sixty miles of branch lines from  Kitimaat to a junction at Kitsilas.  "Not a moment will be lost,"  said Mr. Stewart. "I expect that  grading will be in full swing on  the entire 160 miles comprised in  both contracts within a month  and a half. This work will be  rushed summer and winter until  it is completed. The task of distributing men, horses,.and outfits  along the route is a big one, and  will naturally occupy some time.

"A good deal-of  this work will also be of the  heaviest description, but gene -  ally speaking it will not be so formidable as along the mam line  east from Prince Rupert. All we  now want are the men���thousands of them���and in any eve'nt  we will not disappoint Mn.Morse,  as we are quite confident of carrying out his instructions on schedule time."  The last thing of interest Mr.  Stewart had to say was that not a  single article will have to be ordered from the East, either for  the commissariat or the camps.  As for wages he stated that it  was the intention of the Company  to pay standard wages to all clas-  es of labor during the progress of  this work.  to put up a candidate for the  Dominion House.

A Scotch  syndicate wishes to get an option  on.the group of claims owned by  Mr. Frost and his partners.  Dear Sir,���May I through your  valuable co'umns deny absolutely  the mean falsehood that has been  circulated, to the effect that either my wife or   myself   poisoned  two dogs belonging to Mr. E. G.  Warren.    It   is   true   that   Mrs.  Leech-Porter purchased some   of  strychnine for poisoning a cat belonging to us.   My wife put some]  the poison on some meat and,then  shut the cat up with it in an outbuilding.     Two   hours   later   I  found the door still fastened, and  upon opening it saw that the cat  was alive and had not  eaten  tbe  meat.  I immediately brought the meat  into the house, burning it in the  stove in my wife's presence���aslthe  rest of- the strychnine was on a  shelf in the pantry I destroyed  this also, fearing that my child  might possibly reach it. This  happened on Wednesday and Mr.  Warren's dogs were not poisoned  ���one of them until Thursday  evening and the other until Friday morning. I, may state that  the dog that died on Thursday  bad been down town with his owner and that his death occurred  shortly after Mr. Warren's return.  Mr. Warren's family told me that  the dog, which died on Friday  morning, did not leave their  place that morning, though I understand that they have since  stated that it went on to the road.  They assert positively that the  deg did not go over to our house,  so that even ,if, as was not the  case, there had been poison on  the grounds of our house it could  not have occasioned the dog's  death.  Any fair-minded person must  realize the absurdity of supposing  that I was so careless as to leave  poison when my own dog might  have picked it up or even my little boy.  In view of my position, I particularly regret the circulation  of these rumors, In addition  to the above, I only wish to say  that I do not think that there is  any proof that these dogs died  from strychnine poisoning. That  the whole matter might be cleared up I requested a post mortem  examination at my expense but  such was not given.  Thanking for for the privilege  of making this statmert.   lam,  Yours very truly,  (Rev. ) J ohn Lekch-Porter  Our system * ���     ..

This was  not only utmightly, but it was at times  very painful. I first tried various  household remedies, but these proved  altogether useless. I then took medical advice: Not one, but several doctors in lurn were consulted, but I was  unable to get any permanent relief:  Some time back I noticed a report from  a Justice of the Peace (Magistrate Perry, J.P. for B.C.) who had been cured  of a chronic skin disease by Zam Buk,  and I determined to give this balm a  trial. After a thoroughly fair test, I  c:tn say I am delighted wilh it. I have  the bijst cf reasons for this conclusion;  because while everything else I tried���  salves, embrocations, washes, soap.",  and doctors' preparations failed absolutely to relieve nry pain and rid me of  my trouble, three boxes of Zam-Buk  worked a complete cure, In my opinion  this balm should be ev'in more widely  known than it is, and I hope that my  experience will lead other sufferers'wbo  are in despair to try this herbal healer,  Zam-Buk,"  For healing eczema, running'sores,  cuts, burns, bruises, boils, e'roptions,  scalp sores, pimples, spring eruptions,  itch, chapped hands, and diseases of  the jskin Zam-Buk if without equal,  All druggiste and stores sell it, 50e, or  post paid frem Zam-buk Co, Toronto  150  785  625  Mink. 1900       1901  Granby Mines  64,53-?   231,762  Snowshoe       297      3,741  B.C.
