Wholesale and Retail Dealers in  Fresh Meats  Poultry and Game  Copper Street, Greenwood, B. C.  The Farmers; association, of Rock  Creek, held ,a<; ge'r.etal' meeting last  Friday', at Riverside hall, Rock Creek,  to discuss the possjtnlities of a Fall  Fruit and. Stock Fair'this year. Over  one hundred farmers and business  men of this West Boundary district  attended. ^Ranchers from Myncaster, Rock Creek, Midway and Bridesville met the delegates From Greenwood, Messrs. H. McCutcheon,  J. L. Coles, J. Russell, F. VV. McLaine, Duncan Mcintosh, Frank  Buckless, W. W. Craig and Andy  Sater, who represented this town.  The gathering was a most enthusiastic one, and it was unanimously resolved to hold a big fair somewhere  in the district this fall. Delegates  were appointed to represent Myncaster, Rock Creek, ' Bridesville, Midway and Greenwood, F. W. McLaine being chosen as this city's representative. They will report their  decision as to the location of the Agricultural exhibit to a general meeting  to be  held' at  Midway, on April 15.  There are several reasons why  Greenwood should be the place  chosen. Geographically Greenwood  is not exactly the center, but it has the  largest population, has plenty of hotel  accommodation for visitors- and exhibitors at the Fair, it has, or will  have, when the new rink is completed, the only really large building  available in the district. But Greenwood's principal attraction is the number of its merchants and business  men, who will be willing to contribute largely to the considerable fund  required for prizes and the initial expenses for such an undertaking.  Wherever the fair is held it will* be a  convincing advertisement for the farming section' of the West Boundary,  and offers exceptional opportunities  in drawing the outlying portions of  our vast agricultural area together.  The Farmers association has done  great work already in this regard and  every assistance should be tendered to  them in advancing the good of the  community.  GREAT OIL FIELDS  INSEPARABLE  FROM EMPIRE  CONSTRUCTION  PROMISED SOON  Whatever may be the views oi a  small minority of Canadians as to annexation with the United States, there  is no doubt whatever that the Hon. -  Mr. Borden expressed the voice ofj  the people in his recent address in  Boston. " That the task which confronted Washington and Hamilton in  thc construction days following 1784  was not unlike that which now confronts the statesmen of the British  Empire," was the declaration made  by Robert Laird Borden, leader of  the Conservative party of Canada and  member of parliament for Halifax.  Mr. Borden was speaking before the  Boston Canadian club.  Mr. Borden reminded his hearers  that the British Empire, as at present  constituted, is of very recent development. It was not until after 1840, he  said, that real development began in  its constitutional relations.  In concluding his address Mr. Borden advocated an adequate celebration in a few years of a century of  peace between Great Britain and the  United   States.      He   declared   that  Canada is inseparably united to the  great Empire which owes a proud allegiance to King Edward, the Peacemaker, but is also in many ways  closely associated with this glorious  Republic."  AUDITORIUM DATES  L,  (From Boundary Creek Timet of April 1, 1900)  Bert Mclntyre is forming a bicycle club.  The Grand Forks smelter will  be blown in within 7 weeks.  The Miner's hotel is flooded by  the over flow from Boundary  Creek.  Andrew Laidlaw has formed a  company to build a smelter at  Boundary Palls.  H. T. Wilgress, resident land  agent for the C. &W., has moved  into his new office in the Rendell  block.  Hans Haertel, manager of the  of the Russell Hard war* company, committed suicide at Anaconda on Saturday last.  According to the Midway Advance, the population of that  town has doubled since the Vancouver News-Advertiser correspondent -went to reside there.  The inital number of the Similkameen Star, has made its appearance, James ��� Anderson well  known In this city, is the manager.  FIRE IN CHINATOWN  At 11 o'clock, on Wednesday  night, the fire alarm rang out.  The spacious store of Fook Lee  & Co., on Gold street, was a mass  of raging flame. The Fire department were at once on the  scene and had the fire in control  almost immediately. While the  frame building is badly wrecked,  little damage! was done to the  store contents. The adjoining  buildings were not even scorched,  thanks to the fire department.  a   I    The hero in a novel is the only  �����  I man who always makes good.  It is surprising that the discovery of what is considered to  be a vast oil field in New Brunswick has not attracted more  notice. Exploratory work has  been carried on for some years.  and a number of oil wells have  been producing moderately; but  during the past few months fresh  weils have been drilled, resulting  in discoveries which are most important.  New Brunswick will be one of  the greatest oil and gas producing fields in the world. One well  produced oil and about 300,000  cubic feet of gas each 24 hours.  This gas was utilized in drilling-  fresh wells, and the latest, No. 5,  has registered over 1,000,000 cubic  feet per day. The gas is remarkably pure and absolutely free from  sulphur.  The sands are unusually thick,  and the gas being in such volumes points to a supply of oil  below that will probably alter the  whole face of that part of the  country and prove a most valuable addition to the resources of  the empire.  ___,   SKYSCRAPER FIGHT  Manager F.  W.  McLaine,  of  the Greenwood Auditorium, has  some excellent shows booked  for  the coming months of April  and  May.    Arrangements are bMng  made for a weekly moving picture  show.   The Grace Cameron company, which drew big. crowds here  on  a former visit,  is to be here  about  the middle of April.   On  April 26, H. B. Walker,  of Winnipeg, is sending out a first-class  musical comedy company to show  here.    The Juvenile Bostonians,  that A.l small peoples' company  of actors and singers, will  be at  the   Auditorium   May   3.     The  famous play, "St. Elmo," will be  seen on May 26, presented by H,  B. Walker company.    May 31 the  renowned   Eckhart  bell  ringers  will   exhibit    their    remarkable  prowess, together with a vaudeville entertainment under the direction of Mr. Cosgrove,  the superiority of whose companies is  known in Greenwood. The Greenwood Amateur Dramatic Co. will  present that amusing farce .comedy, "Between the Acts," under  the able management of F. W. McLaine in thesecond week in April.  Book early and. don't come late.  THE HOCKEY BALL  The tenders for the construction  work on the Kettle Valley lines must  be in by April 15th. Messrs. Jones  and Morrissey, two railway contract-  ois from Spokane, and formerly associated with Peter Larsen, are tendering for a part of the new line, from  Midway to Spence's bridge, by way  of Penticton and Merritt, in the Nicola valley.  Construction work as above will be  rommenced in May, and from both  ends of the road. Grading outfits  may be expected to be at work within  sixty days at least.  ROCK CREEK NOTES  Temple Godman's new building  is nearly completed.  Early in April there will be a  concert in aid of school funds, at  Larsen's hall.  Major and Mrs. Anderson and  family will shortly move into  their own residence on the shady  side of the valley.  We hope to see some of that  big road appropriation sunk in  the main roads in this district,  which surely ueed fixing up.  Subscribers to the local telephone complain that too many  receivers are lifted when they  ring up their friends on the  phone.  READ THIS  B1C INCREASE IN  REVENUE RETURNS  Yesterday was the last day in the  month of March, and the end of the  fiscal year in the Dominion Department ol Customs and Inland Revenue. That the revenue collections  for the port of Greenwood show a  marked increase, a gain of $12,-  177.8.? over the fiscal year ending  31st of March, W-J, is a matter of  congratulation. It is a sign of better  times. The total receipts for the past  year up to March 31st, were: Customs, S47.006.17; Inland revenue,  $15,480.19.    Total, $62,486.36.  THE EMPIRE GAZETTE  The well known store of Fred  B. Holmes, on Copper street, has  received a thorough over hauling.  Newely painted, and tastily arranged by Walter Murray, the  store offers every attraction to  smokers, readers of books and  periodicals, whilst lovers of good  candies, fruit and soft drinks, to  say nothing of ice cream sodas,  will find everything they want,  including immediate attention  from the proprietor and his assistant. -  The biggest jail in the world is  at Rangoon, Further India. It  holds 4,000 convicts, but is seldom full.  Seattle is having a skyscraper  fight. That is, a bunch of capitalists want to come to Seattle  and erect a few sixteen-story to  twenty-story buildings. Some  local business men are opposed to  it. They declare that the subsoil  of Seattle is such as will not provide a foundation for skyscrapers.  The answer goes back that the  soil is all right; that the real kick  is, if the skyscrapers go up, they  will house so many tenants that  those who expect to erect small  office buildings will be unable to  find people to occupy them.

REFUSED  Count Boni de Castelane, the  divorced husband of Anna Gould,  recently offered to Marry Baroness  Vaughan, widow of the late King  of Belgium. Boni was flatly rejected. His only asset is his title,  and the matrimonial market is  extremely dull just now.  A WEE ELECTION  Prince Albert, of Monaco, who  has hitherto been an absolute  monarch, has granted universal  suffrage to his 100 subjects, who  will elect the members of the new  parliament, the prince reserving  the right to select the premier or  mayor.  TRAGEDY AT BALL  At a public ball in the small  village of Mate Szalka, in Hungary, last Monday, the building  caught on fire and in the panic  that ensued over 400 dancers were  burnt to death.  On Monday night a grand ball  was given in the old Masonic  building, by the Greenwood  Hockey team, the champions of  the Boundary, the winners of the  Open Challenge cup at Rossland  carnival, which was very largely  attended. The music by Bush's  orchestra, from Midway, was excellent and everyone had a splendid time. An appetising supper  was served at the Pacific Cafe,  aud the whole evening was much  enjoyed by all present. It was  after 3 o'clock before the final  strains of the Home Sweet Home  waltz were heard.  FAITH NEEDED  Hang Halley's comet!

THE YELLOW PERIL  The Chinese aggression on the  northeast frontier of British India  is causing Great Britain much  uneasiness. For centuries Thibet  has been abulTer state, secret and  inviolate. Since the occupation  of that silent table land, the  Roof of the World, by Chinese  troops, well trained and disciplined, India is confronted with a  serious menace. Only the two  small, semi-independent native  states of Nepal and Bhutan lie  between Thibet, Chinese territory, and our great eastern possession, India. Now that China  is established in Thibet, word  has been received from Nepal  that the Chinese are demanding  that that state is a Chinese dependency. The same thing has  occurred with regard to Bhutan.  It is not the presence of a handful of troops, the small Chinese  army that has grabbed Thibet,  that Great Britain has to face,  but a larger movement behind  this advance guard, that needs a  to their country, as in the case of  great military or naval leaders,  or to mankind, as in the case of  thc scientist or philanthropist,  the major part of the 616 members of the House of Lords have  been unqualified and unfit for  their position, excepting their  hereditary right.  By a vote, last week, of 175 to  17, the House of Lords has renounced this hereditary right.  The occasion was Lord Rose-  bery's third resolution dealing  with the reform of the house. It  is a propitious sign of the times  that England should at last see  that the merit of the individual  is more important than the merit  of the individual's ancestor, and  that while a man's grandfather  may have deserved the exalted  rank and prestige conferred on  him by a grateful monarch and  his government, his grandchildren  may not of necessity be worthy  of the right to rule���or a seat in  the House of Lords.  OUTLINES OF  CURRENT EVENTS  Nakusp is to have a   fall   fruit  fair.  King Edward has  fully  recovered.  Calgary is.to  have  a  $300,000  business block.  Liberia has appealed to the  United States to intervene in the  ���:t'..-.i)jeut ot the Boundary disputes with Great Britain and  France.  South Westminister is to be the  C. N. R, terminal. Three  thousand acres, extensive yard  room, and three miles of water-  frontage have been secured.  Afraid of Ghosts  '&  Many people arc afraid of ghosts. Few people  ���re afraid of germs. Yet the ghost is a fancy and  the germ is a fact. If the germ could be magnified  to a size equal to its terrors it -would appear, more  terrible than any fire-breathing dragon. ' Germs  can't be avoided. They are in the air we breathe,  the water wc drink. ���  . ��� .-'���  The germ can only prosper-when the condition  at the system gives it free scope to establish  itself and develop.    When   there is a deficiency of  vital force, languor, restlessness, a sallow cheek,  . a hollow eye, when the appetite is poor and the  sleep is broken', it is rime to guard  against thc germ.   You can  fortify the body against all germs by the use of Dr.,Pierce's Golden Medical Discovery.   It increases the vital power, cles-nses the  system of clogging impurities, enriches the blood, puts the stomach and organs of digestion and nutrition in working condition, so  that the germ  find's, no weak or tainted spot in which to   breed.

The city is cleaning  up the streets, but it devolves on  the householder to make his yard  presentable, and get rid of the  winter's rubbish. While yard  cleaning should now be the order  oi the day, it is incumbent on the  private individual to remember  that the starting of small fires is  not part of the yard cleaning program, especially during this  windy weather, without permission from the city authorities.

REMOVING STUMPS  A discovery . ol great importance to owners of cut over lands  has been made by one of tLe  workers in a Rhinelaud paper  mill, who noticed the destructive  action of nitric acid on woodv  structures.  Tbis man has recently removed  the stumps from sixteen acres of  new land at a cost of four cents  each and five minutes labor for  each stump. His method is as  follows:  With a two-inch augur he bores  a hole down into the stump about  two feet deep, and pours into this  bole one pint of a mixture of  equal parts of nitric acid and sulphuric acid. He plugs the hole  tightly with a plug previously  dipped in melted paraffine. Thirty  days later the stump, roots and  all, will be a charred mass of rotten pulp, and may be spread over  the soil with a shovel, as a fertilizer.
