It is well known ,that Mr. Duncan Ross has been anxious to secure for Greenwood an appropriation ensuring the erection here  of a fit and commodious federal  public building, and the success  of his efforts in this matter will  be appreciated by the citizens  generally.  It is understood that these appropriations are made in installments, -the first being intended  usually to cover the purchase  price of the site for the building,  as well as any initial expenses  connected with its erection. Little, if any^ ��� discussion has been  heard of where the building is to  be erected, but it is to be hoped  that a central and attractive site  may be obtained for this much  used and most useful public building.  - The federal building will "be  not only useful in ihe highest degree in provfding a suitable place  for handling the mails and the  construction of the business of  His Majesty's customs, but will  be an ornament to the city and  should do something to increase  the pride of the people in their  town.      *  *   ' The Dominion government, on  Tuesday, voted subsidies to a line  tff-i-aiiway fro^CarmPbrPetitic-  ton, 50 miles, and a line of railway from Nicola to 'Penticton,  100 miles. This simply means  that the building of the Midway  and Vernon railway to Penticton  and 'then on to Nicola, as desired  by the promoters of the road, has  received the consent and assistance of the Dominion government. The legislation necessary  to this change has been desired  by the promoters of the road for  some time, and the granting of it  looks well for the Midway & Yer-  non. It also looks as if the intention is to make it a part,  finally, of the.C. P. R. extension  through from Midway to the  coast, the C. P. R. having* built  already as far as Nicola.  It is interesting to note that  this year one-sixth of the entire  railway appropriations comes to  British Columbia. Subsidies are  granted in all for 3,877 miles of  railway, of which 655 miles are  located in this province. The  amount of money coming to this  province "through them -is ( four  and a half millions dollars.  EXCURSION PROGRAM  PHOENIX MASONS  CONFER DEGREES  T.wenty-five members of King  Edward VII lodge, A. F. and A.  M., Phoenix, last night visited  the Greenwood lodge and conferred on one of its members the  third or M. M. degree. The visit  was .made in return for a similar  favor done a couple of months  ago by the Greenwood lodge, aud  resulted in a most pleasant evening. After the ceremonies, a  very successful banquet was partaken of by about 60 members of  the order in the Windsor hotel.  Under direction of the toastmast-  ers, the W. M.- and F. W.' McLaine, a very entertaining aud  creditable program was given.  Songs were given by: Messrs.  Turner, McKammon and Reid,  of Phoenix^ and by Messrs. Curtis and Venables, of Greenwoods  Speeches were also made by  Messrs. Galer, Brown and Roderick, of Phoenix, Shipley, of Che-  welah,, W.ash., and James Birnie,  of Greenwood.

SCHOLARS ALL  PASS ENTRANCE  BOUNDARY MINING  Remarkably Good Results in  Greenwood School���One  of Best in Province    -  With both Greenwood's smelters running at record rate, what  is there to darken Greenwood's  future?  Congratulations are doe and  are 'being freely offered to the  students of the Greenwood school  and to J. L. Watson, B. - A., the  principal, on the exceptional success of the candidates at the examination for entrance to the  High School, held 6ere last  month. By the results published  on Tuesday by the Provincial  Department of Education, all the  candidates from the .Greenwood  school secured the coveted standing-       '     '>:,  In the department's report,'the  Greenwood school is included in  the list of schools where the results are particularly gratifying.  The following report gives the  pupils successful in this district  and the marks they obtained:  Greenwood���No. of candidates,  6;.passed, 6.

No results appear an the report  from Grand Forks,:ybxxi in Inspectorate No.v4;*which embraces  all East and ^West ISootenay, the  resultsnareTgtlie^  52 candidates passing out of 64  who tried. Of a^.total of 391  candidates 'writing, in the province, 242 passed, or about 62 per  cent. "    ':.-.Y- Y'''7y7::  In Inspectorate No. !��. embracing Vancouver Island and the adjacent islands, 44 candidates pass-  ed-out of 86 who wrote. In Inspectorate No. 2; embracing the  Lower Mainland and the Coast as  far north as Port Simpson, 75  passed out.of 133J and in Inspectorate No. 3, embracing the Yale-  Cariboo-Li liooet districts, 71  passed out otv108.,  It will thus be seen that the  percentage of successful scholars  in this inspectorate is considerably higher than in the others,  and. it is exceedingly pleasant to  know that of the eight schools  specially mentioned, five���Cranbrook, Fernie, Golden, Greenwood  and New Denver���are in this Inspectorate. Cranbrook passed 12,-  Golden 10, Greenwood 6 and Fernie 5 candidates, each place passing all the candidates trying.  The highest mark taken in the  province was 839, cut of a possible 1,100, but the marks of the  Greenwood scholars are' a good  average. The results ought to  be highly gralifyiug to Principal Watson and to the parents  interested in the success of the  Greenwood school.  ODDFELLOWS INSTALL.

U., and the Fremont  will open^again in the very near  future.  Work is being done on the Joe  Joe, in Wellington camp, to keep  it from filling with water from a  near-by stream. ' ��� '   ' ,  The Dominion Copper Co.'s  smelter this week treated 3,627  tons of ore, distributed as follows: Brooklyn 952, Rawhide  2,053, Sunset 576 and Mountain  Rose 46.  Twelve students in civil engineering have arrived from the  east and will assist O. E. LeRoy  in surveying Phoenix camp. They  are now working at the Gold Drop  and Snowshoe.  The Oro Denoro will ship 20  cars of ore to the Greenwood  smel ter tomorrow. An extra machine was started yesterday. The  Denoro has been shipping 16 cars  a day recently with only three  machines, which a record for the  Boundary.  Work is being started today on  the erection of a new* 20,000 volt  sub-station at the Mother. Lode  mine. The erection ^of this substation means keeping up and  keeping steady the pokier for the  mine. The huildiag will be  erected near the new compressor  building at the~Mbthe~r Lode, arid  will ensure the supply of a sufficient quantity of power for the mine  The erection of the building is  in charge of Mayor Bunting,  who put a gang of men on it this  morning.  Shipments at Mines of B. C.  Copper Co. Increase More  Men at Denoro  The B. C. Copper Co. is now  shipping a car load of copper a  day, and wifh the increased facilities which are being added steadily to the company's mines will  be able in the future to maintain  this exceptional -shipment. At  the Mother Lode four new self-  dumping tram cars were put in  operation this week, and five more  are under order. The sub-station  at the Mother Lode, which is expected to be completed at the end  of this month, will provide practically unlimited power for the  big compressors ��� and allow the  company to run at full capacity.  The Mother Lode will then be  able to increase its shipments to  2,000 tons per day.  On account of the steadily increasing tonnage at the smelter,  25 additional men were this week  put on at the Oro Denoro and the  tonnage from there will be kept  up in proportion to that from the  other mines at the very exceptional figure it has maintained-most  of the time since the.recent reopening of the smelter.  Coke is now coming in very  satisfactorily, transportation  facilities are better than ever and'  the prospects for the company's  operations throughout the summer are better than ever before.  DOMINION COMPANY  OFFICIALS LEAVE  At the Tip Top crosscutting is  being steadily carried on. Sinking- on the big copper, showing-  there revealed the fact that the  lead widened to 15 feet and was  18 feet in depth. It dips north  by northeast and lies at an angle  of about 22 per cent. After cutting through the ore the men continued to sink for nearly, 20 feet  and are now nearing the ore body  again in the crosscut, which is  over 30 feet in. In the character  of the showing, and in the ore,  there is everything to encourage  the owners. H. V. Fuller is expected in now at an early date.  ��� H. .H. Melville, acting president of tne p'omiriionCopper C6.,-  and M. M. Johnson, consulting  engineer, arrived in camp on Friday evening, last week, and left  on Saturday morning for their  hpmes._ The work of reorganizing all the mines and works of  the company was felt to be completed and Mr. Melville, had expressed himself as greatly pleas^  ed with the way in which the resumption of operations had been  carried out. It is expected that  both he and Mr. Johnson will return to th�� Boundary iu the course  of a few months, when a good  many of the improvements the  company now has under way wil 1  be completed.  The smelter of the B. C. Copper Co. this week treated 13,143  tons of ore, distributed as. follows: Mother Lode, 9,143 tons;  Oro Denoro, 3,828 tons; others,  172 tons.

Macfarlane  <uniqn~  FRIDAY, JULY 17,1908  , While the individual   citizens  of Grand Porks have the sympathy of the residents of the Boundary in the very severe loss suffered bv them in  last Friday's fire,  disasters of this kind are seldom  'unmixed   with blessing.    Grand  Forks, with  the substantial development of its fruit  lands, enlarged  activities of its smelter,  and its nearly ideal conditions of  climate and  situation  is not in  any danger  of annihilation.    In  fact, the final result  of the fire  is sure to be the building of the  city on larger,   better  and more  idealistic lines.    Greenwood will  wish its neighboring city  every  success in its rebuilding.  Tomorrow it is expected that  the ei ght months' session of the  Dominion Parliament will end.  The session has been unusual for  more reasons than its length, aud  has afforded fairly clear and satisfactory illustrations of the way  in which, the government of the  country is conducted. The Opposition, looking to a general  election, had itself galvanized  into as great activity as it was  capable of displaying, and its  criticism; though marked by the  bombast and the attempt to fasten this or that scandal on the  government in the way in which  it has tried and failed a hundred  times before, served its purpose  for the time, aud now that the  smoke of the battle is over, the  leaders of the government are  coming more clearly and more  distinctly than ever into the eye  of the people. It is,/indeed, a  very remarkable thing- that  twelve years of opposition have  not developed in the Conservative  party at Ottawa one new man of  really outstanding ability.  It is yet too soon to discuss at  any length the things accomplished this session.-It is enough  just now to say that there have  been before the House, at least  halt a dozen measures of prime  importance���measures indicating  that the spirit of reasonable and  persistent reform is still characteristic of the Liberal party. The  Hodgins charges and.others like  them have failed utterly, and the  result is that Sir Wilfrid" Laurier  and the members of his government stand before the country as  not only the best, but the only  available administrative men.  MAKING MEN  FOR CANADA  The people of Greenwood will  be happv to learn that the supplementary estimates passed at  Ottawa this week contain the  first grant toward tbe erection of  a federal public building in  Greenwood. These grants are  always made in installments and  spread, usually over three years,"  the first one being intended for  the purchase of a site and the defraying of the necessary expenses  connected with the initial stages  of erecting a public building.  Greenwood both deserves and  needs this building, and the  efforts of Mr. Duncan Ross in securing the grant will be greatly  appreciated.  Canadian Courier's Estimate  of Canada's Interior Department's Work.  ���The growth of Western Canada  has presented for her statesmen  a big problem. People we wanted. The cry was continually aad  never ending for people to ��11 np  the vast spaces of the "great west.  Sufficient of our own blood and  spaech could not be had, so our  ministers had to choose from foreign peoples those who would  either now, or in the next genert -  tion, make the kind of citizens  wanted. What has been done,  and who did it, is what the Canadian Courier, Canada's national  weekly, outlines in its current  issue, in telling the story of the  Ministers pf the Interior of Sir  Wilfrid Laurier's government.  The Courier says:  The most active immigration  official in the world at the present day is the Hon.  Frank Oliver, Minister of the Interior in  the Canadian cabinet. Mr. Oliver  has been interested in immigration for   a   much longer period  than since he has been minister.  Thirty years ago the Hon. Frank  felt himself considerably like an  immigrant when he arrived via  cart in Edmonton and set up life  in a log shack and a log store,  and saw about  him a handful of  folk who, with him, were .interested in driving   stakes in that  valley of the Saskatchewan.    It  was a quiet, remote old Edmonton in those days; and the fact  that Edmonton is today the capital ot Alberta as well as the natural centre bf  immigration .for  that part of the West is due more  to Frank-Oliver than to any other  one man.   For Frank Oliver was  not only a storekeeper and a cart  driver between Fort Garry and  Fort Edmonton, but  he   was a  newspaper   man,   and his.'little  Bulletin was +he- first story ever  published of the efforts then being made, ih; a crude way, to get  people into those   tracts of the  new lone land. -;- ���"*';���'-.-���  When the real movement began to the West; Mr. Oliver had  for years been a member of; the  Northwest Legislative Assembly  and was already member of the  House of Commons. Shortly  after his election to, the House  began the most remarkable- feature of the influx under the Sifton regime; that was the importation of Galicians, who,; in-Ahe  language of tbe Opposition,-oh  the prairie were known as "Sif-  ton's sheepskins." Mr. Oliver  was one of the/few vvho had  great faith in the Galicians, even  when he disagreed with a great  -many other features of the government's western policy. Time  has justified his faith in these as  well as many other of "the folk  settlements that have transformed the two new provinces from  great natural~parks to great constructive communities.  ��� Figures in this connection are  valuable as showing what has  been done in the way of numbers  for that country since the modern era of expansion and immir  gration set in on the prairie.  For the  calendar year ending  June 30th, 1897, the total number  of immigrants into Canada was  21,916; by June,  1903,   another  figure   was   added-to   the sum,  which became 128,364; in June of  1908 the first figure of the sum  was doubled and the aggregate  became 262,469.    Thus in eleven  years the increase of total immigration to Canada was from 21,-  916 to 262,469���which is an expansion of more than twelve hundred per cent., or more than one  hundred per cent, every year.  This, of course, includes every  nationality admitted. Separate  figures for British' people arrivals are equally instructive* In  1139?, total of British immigration reached 11,383; * in June,  1903, -the number for the fiscal  year reached 41,792; again in  June, 1908, the aggregate for  twelize months had jumped to  120,182, which was an increase of  more than 60,000, and more than  a hundred per cent, over 1906-  1907,  and   a   total   increase   of  nearly eleven hundred per cent,  for the period, or nearly doubling  the original '96-'97 aggregate each  year.  As to proportionate arrivals of  English,   Irish  and Scotch, the  figures sfiow that the Scotch have  continue"*! to multiply faster than  either of the other two; although  the% large aggregate  is held by  the English.     For instance,  in  '96-'97,' English numbered 9,40l|  Scotch 1,476, Irish 933.   By 19031-  04 the proportional arrivals wer^r  32,510, 7,046,  2,236;  -whereas by  June,' 1908,   totals for the year  ran:   English 91,412, an increase  for the-period of nearly one thousand per cent.: Scotch 22,223, in*-  creasing about   fifteen   hundred  per cent.; Irish,  6,547, multiplying about seven hundred per cent.  The next most interesting, and  by far the most numerous numerically,  is  the influx   from   the  United- States.    In   1897   there  was no American invasion,   for  the total arrivals from across the  border were only 2,412. .By June,'  1903, the number for that  blue  book year had swelled to 49,743,  ah-increase of a little more than  two thousand per cent, over the  period of 1896��?97.    Up to June,  1908, the number��of United States  arrivals in the western land of  promise  and   performance made  the record aggregate of 58,312,  which is an increase for the whole  period of nearly three thousand  per cent.  Such is the story of mixed people arrivals in Canada, as told by  the English-Speaking races and  by totals tor all combined. This  is the story of the Sifton-Oliven  period of immigration when there  grew upon the prairie that network of folk settlements on the  three provinces; in Alberta the  English, French, Germans,  United States, Norwegians, Galicians, Mennonites and Mormons;  ia Saskatchewan English, Germans, Doukhobors, Mennonites  and Icelanders; in Manitoba~~a  conglomeration of most of these  with the "Icelanders in the,big  majority.  So have the ancient first families that used to be the wards of  the Hudson's Bay Company and  the workers in the land���to wit,  the Indians and half breeds���been  crowded to the obscure places by  the people of many tongues and  creeds and customs. From which  it may be judged that the affairs  of the chief immigration official  in Canada are quite as' complicated as"-even Hon. Frank Oliver  could wish them to be; and it may  be conjectured that a census of  the votes by which the Hon.  Frank retains his Alberta membership that he has never losty.  would reveal something very novel and bewildering in the study  of names.

It is understood that their interest in the  Bell has deen bonded to Jas. D.  Sword.  Superintendent Rundberg of  the Dominion Copper Co.'s mines  at Phoenix, was in Greenwood today. The reported rich strike on  the Brooklyn is a hard fact and  the Brooklyn is showing up some  very fine copper ore.  Judge Brown went to Rossland  on Wednesday oh legal business,  Judge Forin still being in the  Old country. H.

Several bunches of fishermen  from the country run by Roosevelt are fishing on the Kettle  river, up as far as Beaverdell.  They live in tents and pack in  their supplies and are no good to  the country except as an advertisement of its fishing resources.  A gang* of eight men under  foreman Middleton are ,dping  some good road work on the West  Fork between Westbridge and  Beaverdell. They have . been  working on this road for five  years, but the work this year is  good work, .according to our informant.  In Phoenix they do things a la  Marquis of Queehsberry. The  Owls and the Eagles put up a  good game of baseball on Sunday  and a couple of the. players settled a personal difference which  arose in the game, afterwards on  the main street, according to regular rules. The fight was to a  finish.  ***       /  McRae Bros.-received some fine  pictures of the Dominion Day  celebration. One of the best of  them is of Ola Lofstad's popular  hotel; the Ladysmith. The hotel  was well decorated, not only with  trees'and bunting, but with good  looking people, and| the result is  a fine picture that is a credit to  the host of the Ladysmith.  An attempt is being made in  Grand -Forks to have the new  public building 'being provided  for that city by the Federal government erected on a portion of  the burned district, diagonally  opposite/from the Yale.hotel.  The idea is to have the building  surrounded with a park, .and to  make the whole effect as beautiful as it can be made.  The Methodist and Presbyterian churches are holding joint  services "for the next four Sundays, morning services to be held  in the Presbyterian church at 11  o'clock, and the evening services  in the Methodist church at r7:30  p. m.. In- the absence of Rey.  M. D. McKee, Rev. F. J. Rutherford will have charge of all the  services;  The trout have gone farther up  than ever in the creek this year.  If fish under eight inches in  length were returned to the water  as required by the Fishery Regulations,: in a couple of years' the  fishing in Boundary creek would  be exceptionally -good. The regulations have been mafle so that  the fish would have an opportunity to increase in number. Keep  them. Illegal fishing now means  no fishing three years hence.  Tuesday, the 11th of August,  there willbe a lawn social and  garden party on the grounds of  the Church of the Sacred Heart.  Rev. Father Bedard has recently  made great improvements .about  the grounds surrounding the  church and the house," and this  will be the first event on the new  lawn. Extensive arrangements  are being made for the program  for the evening, of. which announcement .will be made later.  Remember the date.  A balance of $168.24, with two  small', accounts still to pay, is  what the treasurer reported at  the final meeting of the. Dominion Day celebration committee on  Monday night. The net amount  on hand will be probably $155. A  great deal of credit is due to the  committee, and particularly to  the secretary, R. J."

Cameron, brother  of Hugh Cameron, and one of  the pioneers of Camp McKinney,  suteered a very serious accident  on Tuesday night, a_nd was  brought on Wednesday to** the  Sisters' Hospital here. Mr. Cam  eron fell from a/ladder leading: to  a. loft, fracturing his leg above  the ankle. The break is a bad  one, the bone bei ng badly broken  and the ligaments torn. The patient is in. charge of Dr. Oppenheimer, and the bone is being set  today. Hugh Cameron and. Ed.  Hat ten, who made the long trip  down from.Camp McKinney with  the injured man, left yesterday  afternoon for Camp McKinney.  Both Hugh Cameron a*nd his  brother were among the first men,  in the Camp McKinney country  and are widely known over the  district. .',.'.'  There was a twelfth of July  celebration itt Greenwood last  Sunday morning, An orange  flag, made of silk, was hung over  the door of a hotel where only  Irish is talked, and where there is  no faith in Protestanism,; ana. in  launched a bunch of men on the  unsuspecting host, who took the  Protestant, money unknowingly..  But as soon as he discovered that  it was the orange flag without  that was attracting custom, down  carrie the flag, the' silk of it and  all, the Protestant money being  no temptation to Greenwood's  popular Irish hotel keeper when  it meant letting *an orange flag  wave over his door. : The celebration, though furious while it  lasted, did not continue long, for  the host is nothing if not quick  witted, and fond of taunting the  Protestants on their unfortunate  position.  4>a����^t  Special Order Service and show you our range of summer suitings.
