Both  Which Take Effect. He Disappears Into the Night.  of  FURNISHINGS  (Special to The Times.)  Midway, March 28. - The citizens of  Midway were startled at half past ten  Tuesday evening by the sound of two  shots fired in quick succession, and  followed by sharp cries and groans.  The night was very dark and those  who were in their he mes nearby, following the outcry, to the drug store of  Hi Elridge, where they found the proprietor in agony at his own door. T  account given of the event is quite  clear but the motive involved is rather  mysterious.  EI.BIDGK'S  'TORY.  From the story told by Mr. Elridge  it would appear that as he was returning home he was approached at the  corner of the Eastern Townships bank,  which adjoins his premises, by a man.  whose face was covered by a cloth and  was ordered to hold up his hands and  keep quiet. Tl.is Elridge refused to  do, when he was shot at by the man  who stood a few feet from him. The  shot took effect just above his breast  and the bullet coming out of his shoulder went through the bank window.  Elridge started for his own door when  -mother bullet struck him in tha hip,  going through the fieshy part of the  same. Thr bullet hit abunch of keys  in his hip pocket, breaking the ring  which held them into many parts. The  assailant then fled in the darkness,  leaving his victim writhing in pain at  his own threshold.  MOTIVK  UNCERTAIN.  Many theories are advanced for the  murderous attack. The idea that he  was mistaken for the bank manager  and that the design was to secure entrance to the uank is exploded by the  fact that the manager was at the moment at work at his desk and was  plainly dis.:ernable by the burning  light within. Another theory advanced  is that the plan was either to secure  ?ntrance to I<ogan's jewelry store or  the express^moneyi= order���^office^which.  aie in Elridge's building, but this is  hardly tenable, when it is remembered  that to murder the man thus openly  away from his own door would defeat  such a purpose.  POI.1C1*  GOT  BUSY.  The police were soon on the ground  and made diligent enquiry into the circumstances, but so far as known without coming to any satisfactory conclusions or results. The community has  been profoundly stirred by the event.  Elridge is resting quite comfortably  today and fair hopes are entertained  of his recovery.  FKRSONAI, NOTKS.  Percy Jackson, employee cf T. M.  Gulley & Co., met with a very serious  accident Monday evening. In jumping from a wagon he alighted on some  loose boards with the result that he  broke one of the bones of his leg at the  ankle. He is progressing favorably  under the care of Dr. Newcombe.  F. M. Stevenson, H. Viger, P. Lund-  berg and J. Thompson visited Nelson  early in the week.  OBITUARY-  BIG  IMPROVEMENTS  Local Meat Merchant Makes  Changes.  A COLD STORAGE  PLANT  New  Mechanical System   Being   Installed for the Better Handling of  Meats and Vegetables.  It is not only among the mines and  similar enterprises that progress is  being made in Greenwood and the  Boundary district. The retail merchants and business menogenerally are  always on the alert for opportunities  to improve and extend their business  enterprises. It is not often that improvements affectingrthe general public to so great an extent are undertaken,  as those now being made by Messrs.  P. Burns & Co. in their Greenwood  and Rossland meat markets. Until  the present time the refrigeration system for the keeping of meats and dairy  produce in a fresh and wholesome condition, was similar to that which has  been in use for many years. Ice was  procured from some stream during itie  winter and packed in sawdust for summer use. This was placed in the ice  box and the meat kept in as even a  temperature as possible but as the  supply of ice in the refrigerator room  varied, so did the temperature causing  more or less damage to the meat.  To improve these conditions and to  make it possible to serve the public  with meats in the best possible condition, steps have been taken to install a refrigeration system of the  latest; and most approved pattern,  which will be free from the defects of  the old system and will include many  new features that will be of great advantage and service.  J. G. Frank of Spokane, representing the John Lang Ice Machine Co. of  that city, is here making the improvements. It consists of an up-to-date  cold storage plant. The principal feature of the system from a mechanical  standpoint is the machine which does  the work. It is a two-ton ammonia  compressor refrigeratoring machine,  which has a capacity to produce, in  technical language, two tons of refrigeration every twenty-four hours,  or.it will manufacture one ton of ice  every sixteen hours.    Ammonia  is the  ch^mic^lTg^lrt^sediiro^tffoper^ior^  Under the new system the temperature of the curing room is kepf always  the same to the great advantage in  preserving the meats. When completed  in about two weeks the new refrigerator system will Shave a capacity of 23,-  000 cubic feet. This will be uised for  meats, fish, vegetables, poultry, curing  hams, eggs, butter and pickled meats,  all arranged in separate compartments  so that everything may be kept fresh  and sweet. One of the advantages of  the new system is that the produce is  kept in a dry cold atmosphere and not  in a damp cold as heretofore. It is said  that meats kept under ithese conditions  are served fresher, firmer aud more  satisfactory in every way.  The improvements are being made  at an expenditure of some five thousand  dollars and will be completed in two  weeks. These are the first of the kind  ever introduced into this part of British Columbia.  A sad bereavement befel Mr. and  Mrs. William Chynoweth of Deadwood  last Wednesday, the 28th inst., when  their only child, Ethel, aged twelve  years, passed away in the Sisters'  hospital in Greenwood, as a result of  complications for appendicitis arising  from an operation. Deceased was  a bright promising young girl and was  much beloved by all who knew her and  being the only child her loss is especially mourned by her parhnts.  The funeral will take place from the  Greenwood Methodist church Sunday  afternoon at 2 o'clock. Rev. H. i".  Hastings will conduct the services.  The musical concert held Tuesday  night in the Presbyterian church was  a success, especially as far as the program was concerned. The attc ndance  was rather small but those who were  present got more than their money's  worth. The major part of the program  was taken by Miss Q leenie McCoy of  the Victoria College of Music, and her  sweet voice charmed her audience and  many are of the opinion that she is the  most gifted soloist that has been heard  in Greenwood for a long time. Mrs.  H. McCutcheon presided at the piano  and Mrs. Oliver and A. M. Whiteside  rendered vocal selections.  The Epworth ueague of the Metho  dist church will hold a social at the  parsonage next Wednesday evening,  to which all young people are cordially  invited. Strangers will be made  especially^ welcome and a pleasant  time is promised for all.  MIDWAY AND VERNON  Railway Company Wins Its  Case.  SUBSIDY  WILL BE  PAID  Chief Justice Hunter Decides That Road  Is Entitled to Assistance���Debts  Will Be Paid.  "Decision   iu   our  favor.     Subsidy  Act in full force and effect."  RAU>H  SMAII.BS.  Such was the welcome and long-  looke d-for message received:by Duncan  Mcintosh from Mr. Smailes on Wednesday evening, announcing victory  for the Midwav and Vernon Railway  company in their long fight to secure  tbe subsidy for building the line from  Midway to Vernon. The news spread  like wildfire and soon every business  man in town was congratulating the  successful and happy piomoters and  incidentally himself, for while it meant  fortune to those directly connected  with the road, it meant considerable  to almost every individual merchant in  Greenwood. The news was telephoned  all over the city,' and even the lele-  graph wires were brought into use to  spread far and wide the welcome tidings, and on all sid^s smiling faces  were much in evidence. For weeks  and months the decision just handed  down by Chief Justice Hunter at Victoria has been awaited with growing  impatience, Through the loug course  of the Midway and Vernon case in its  adventures in the provincial legislature  it has bee.i closely watched by all  classes of people. Sometimes hope ran  high and at others blank disappoint,  ment and despair stared in the face,  but when final decision was left to  Chief Justice Hunter hope-was again  revived and the victory, though not  unexpected, was nevertheless joyfully  received.  WHAT   IT  MKANS.  The decision that the Midway and  Vernon shall be paid their subsidy  means first that all debts will be paid.  All the accounts for labor and merchandise will probably be settled in  thirty days. This will mean a great  deal for Greenwood and all other towns,  especially Midway, where the promoter i a ndjeon tractors have been doing  business.   Thousands of dollars' worth  of accounts that have been standing  for many months and which some of  the creditors despaired of ever getting,  will be paid and large sums, of mouey  will be put into circulation, stimulating and promoting busiuess generally.  It is not known yet when construction  work will be resumed, but -it has been  stated that this a ill be started as soon  as men can be secured and the proper  organization ell'ected to carry on the  work.  At Mic way the news was received  with equal satisfaction. The merchants and townspeople there are  likewise vitally interested and had also  waited long for th : decision. As a result Midway looks forward to a strong  revival in business in all lines. With  the V., V.���& E. work, 'he proyosed C.  P. R. extensions, uhe Midway and  Vernon resuming operation* and the  possibility of the Great Northern  building to Gn.enwood, the season  promises to be one of exceptional activity for that town.  At Rock Creek, Westbridge aud  Beaverdell the news was equally welcome, for it is generally realized that  the whole future of that country is  identified with the success of the Midway and Vernon line.  POLICE COURT CASES-  In the police court this week the  Windsor hotel was arraigned for  breaking the law, but the case was  dismissed through lack of evidence.  Similar charges were laid against the  National hotel and 3 fter several adjournments came up for settlement  this afternoon.  The charge against the Ladysmith  hotelman for assaulting John Barry  was als ) considered this afternoon, but  at the time of going to press no decision had been reached.

"There is a tide in the affairs of  men, which, when taken at the  flood, leads on to fortune.' The  present indicates that the tide is  coming this way and that now is  the time to prepare to make the  best possible use of the opportunities offered.  Much that is now widely known  of the Boundary district has been  spread abroad by the persistent  efforts of individuals. The results so far have been good and  those who have contributed by  voice and pen to the advertising  of the Boundary are to be congratulated upon their success.  But if oue or two or a dozen  working separately and individually have accomplsshed much, it  is certain that a score or a hundred by co-operating could accomplish immeasurably more. Such  is the object of " The Boundary  Boosters' Club."  The principal requirement of  the present moment is a man who  will take the lead, interest business men and prominent citizens  generally in the project and make  it a success.  FRIDAY MARCH 30. WOO.  BOOST THE BOUNDARY.  PURITY     AT    ELECTIONS.  It is more than likely that during the present session acts will  be passed to insure the purity of  elections. Mr. Borden and Mr.  Pitzpatrick have both spoken on  the subject and it is convenient  to state concisely the several proposals now before the house, and  their present status :  1. Fixed dates for bye-elections. Proposed by Mr. Borden ;  approved by Mr. Fitzpatrick.  2. Independent returning officers, who are to have the unfettered appointment  of  deputy -re  turning officers. Proposed by  Mr. Borden ; approved by Mr.  Fitzpatrick.  3. Voters who do not exercise  the franchise to be deprived of it  for a period. Thrown out as a  suggestion by Mr. Borden ; rather  favorably viewed by Mr. Fitzpatrick.  4. Some features of the election law, such as the clauses relating to hiring conveyances,  made more practical. Suggested  by Mr. Borden ; approved by Mr.  Fitzpatrick.  5. Much more stringent Hmi  tation and investigation of election expenditures aud contributions. Proposed bv Mr. Borden ;  not directly touched upon by Mr.  Fitzpatrick.  6. Appointment of an independent official to initiate prosecutions for election irregularities,  thereby abolishing the saw-off.  Strongly advocated by .Mr. Borden ; approved by Mr. Fitzpatrick  7. Election trials to be made  simpler and speedier. Proposed  by Mr. Borden not directly  touched upon by Mr. Fitzpatrick.  8. Prohibition of bribing by  promises of public works. Proposed by Mr. Borden ; not touched  on by Mr. Fitzpatrick.  9. Some reform in the preparation of voters' lists. Strongly  and significantly urged by Mr.  Fitzpatrick, Mr. Borden not having said anything on the subject.  10. Punishment of debauched  constituencies, either by saddling  them with costs or by depriving  them of representation. Suggested by Mr. Borden, but not  touched on by Mr. Fitzpatrick.  In his reply Mr. Fitzpatrick  said that a saw-off should be regarded as compounding felony.���  Vancouver World.  ^mmnwmmmmm^  CF*  CF*  CF*  CF*  CF*  CF*  CF*  CF*  CF*  CF*  CF*  CF*  CF*  CF*  CF*  CF*  CF*  CF*  CF*  Cr*  CF*  Cr*  <5=*  Q=*  Q=*  Capital, all paid up $14,400,000.

NftDEN,^lANAG  Thomas Deasy, ex-chief of the Victoria  fire department, has been appointed  chief of the Nelson fire brigade, taking  the place of the former one who was  discharged for not properly attending  to his duties.  There is a movement on foot for  the formation of a club or association among the business men  of Greenwood, Phoenix and Grand  Forks for the purpose of  adver-  . Using the Boundary district generally. It is felt that some steps  should be taken to make known  the advantages and resources of  "ttiis^districtand^toattract thither  capital and population, more  especially the former. It has  been discussed in all three towns  mentioned and it is thought that  more effective work can be done  by all three co-operating than by  any one town taking up the work  alone.  It is proposed that representatives cf all the towns meet and  thoroughly discuss the subject,  appoint a central executive committee, with sub-committees in  each of the towns, whose duty it  would be to work out the details  regarding the advertising ol  their own town and forward the  results in concrete form to the  executive. One or more members of the executive would reside  in each town and most of the  business of the club could be carried on by correspondence. The  local committees, composed of  most of the business men of the  town, would hold meetings as  often as necessary to push forward their work. It has been  proposed to call this new organization "The Boundary Booster  Club."  That there is an opening for  such an organization in the  Boundary most business men will  admit. It is generally realized  that the future looks bright and  that the district is on the eve of  a business revival of no mean  order.

BROWN'S VIEWS  ���A  e;  A  'I  St"  Ai   "���>  Columbian and Western, Midway and  Vernon, and West Kootenay Acts-  (Continued from last week.)  ���'During-the latter part of the session the government brousrht down an  act to amend the Columbia and Western Railway Subsidy Act, 1896. This  provided for granting the Columbia  and Western Railway company 808,872  acres of land. In order to understand  this act it may hoi be amiss to state  some of the essential facts in connection with the C. & W. subsidy, The  Columbia and Western Railway company was incorporated in 18% to build  a railway from Trail to Penticton, divided into six sections, and in the  same year a subsidy act was passed, in  which provision was made for giving  a land subsidy to the company for sections 1, 3. 4, 5 and 6. The company  built sections 1, 3 and 4, but did not  build sections 2, .S and 6.  "Section 5 of the Subsidy act provided : ' No lands shall be granted  which are not designated and surveyed  by the company within seven years  from the passing of this act.' The  act was passed on the 17th of April,  18%. The company did not designate  and survey the lands within seven  years from the passing of its subsidy  act. In fact the survey is not entirely  completed yet. The company, however,  applied to this government for the  balance it claimed to be entitled to on  i'.s subsidy for section 3, and in May,  190S the government passed an orier  in council by which it pledged itself to  bring in legislation to give the com-  nany the balance claimed by it, viz.,  808,872 acres.  "The opposition opposed this bill ou  the ground that the company had  signally failed to carry out its agreement to build from Trail toPentiction,  as the portion of the line from Midway  to Penticton was not built, which left  a very important part.of the province  destitute of railway facilities, and did.  not give the connection with the coast  via Penticton, the Okanagan lake and  the Shuswap and Okanagan railway,  which, was contemplated when the  subsidy act was passed. That 't was  the company's own fault that the surveys were > not made within the time  stipulated, as the negotiations with regard to substituting other aid than  that mentioned in the Subsidy act was  initiated and carried on by the company in its endeavor to take advantage  of the province.    ���  : " These contentions could not be and  were not successfully assailed, but  while the bill was not acceptable to  some of the Conservatives, all voted for  it who were present on its second reading, except Price Ellison, who voted  against it. In this case, also, the.  Socialist wing of the Conservative  party meekly following Premier McBride, Hawthornthwaite making a  voluble and specious plea in favor of  the bill. Davidson, the Labor member  from Slocan, on every, occasion on  which this matter came up shirked the  vote,  MIDWAY   AND  VEKNON.  osity shown to the Columbia and Western (really the C. P. R.) was the treatment meted out to the Midway and  Vernon Railway company. After ten  miles had been nearly graded and the  success of the project seemed assured,  Premier McBride and Finance Min -  ister Tatlow gave an interview in  Montreal in December to-ihe manager  of the Bank of Montreal there in  which they stated that this company  would not be paid any subsidy until  it established its right to it in court.  The government would not say that  the company had not complied with  the provisions of the Subsidy act, although a sworn statement of what had  been done had been placed before it,  and the inference is it could not, even  in the interests of its niaiter, the C. P.  R., yet by throwing out this doubt as  to the company's right to receive the  subsidy, it blocked the enterprise for a  time and deprived worhmen, fam.ers  and merchants of money due them to  the amount of S60,000 or $70,000. The  premier even blocked Price Ellison's  bill extending the time for completing  the railway, possibly for fear it would  have some effect in validating the subsidy.  " Some important bills were brought  before the house which I regret did not  pass. The bill providing for an eight-  hour day in smelters was brought before the house by Mr. Davidson from  Slocan. I supported the bill this year,  although I voted against a similar bill  last year, as the conditions had  changed, and even had fuller and better information as to the effect of such  a measure this year than we had the  year before. When the matter came  up last year no attempt had been made  to arrive at an agree nent with the  smelter employees with respect to the  hours of labor and the wages to be  paid to the employees. There -was a  grave danger, if the act were '-passed,  that it would precipitate an industrial  crisis which would close the smelter  and throw many out of employment;  that it was alleged by those who pretended to know the conditions respecting smelting that it would not stand a  reduction of hours unless the wages  were materially reduced ; that we had  not sufficient information to warrant  us in passing this legislation in the  face of these representations, and that  in any event the proposed act was not  to come into force until the 1st of  March, 1906, and before that time information could be obtained respecting  the conditions surrounding smelting  and if necessary legislation could be  introduced which would come into  effect as soon, or nearly as soon, as  that under the proposed bill.  "During the interval between the  sessions 1905 and 1906, mainly owing  to the exertions of Mr, MacDonald,  leader of the oppositio.n, an agreement  had been arrived at between the smelter employers and employees in all the  smelters in B. C. except those on Vancouver Island. There was chere'fore  no danger of a disastrous strike or  lockout. The change had not increased  the operating expenses nearly so  much as had been represented that it  would, and the passing of the act  would make permanent a condition  which had in the majority ot smelters  in the province been voluntarily agreed  to. A majority of the opposition  voted for the bill, but it was defeated  by 19 to 17.  WKST  KOOTENAY   POWIiK.  "Another bill which I regret was defeated w is the West Kootenay I ower  and Light bill. The West Kootenay  Power and Light company was incorporated in 1897, and was authorized to  supply power, light and heat within a  radius of 50 miles from the city of  Rossland. In the same year the Cascade Power and Light company was  incorporated and was authorized to  supply heat and power 40 miles .from  Cascade. The first named company  wished to have to have the area of its  operations extended to the district of  Yale. The Cascade company is utterly  unable even now to supply the power  required in the Boundary district and  it is expected the demand for power  will be more than doubled within the  next year. The Cascade company,  however, claimed that it was entitled  to a preference for the power it could  supply and unless that were given it  would lose $500,000 or so, which it had  invested, as it could not compete with  the West Kootenay company. The  matter was before the private bills  committee for days and a great deal of  evidence given. This evidence showed  clearly the great need of the Boundary  district for power, and the incapacity  of the Cascade company to supply it.  Representatives of the Cascade company made a most persistent lobby  and when the bill came up in the  house sympathy with that company  was surprisingly strong.  " When the bill came up in committee  DrrYoOTgiof lttlin~1movea"tlTe"follow"-  or conferred, the West Kootenay Power  and Light Company, Limited, shall  obtain the sanction of the lieutenant-  governor in council, who shall impose  suchtermsas may be just and equitable,  after taking into consideration the  rights, powers, privileges and priorities of any now enjoyed by any other  company at present operating and supplying light, heat and power iu the  said district of Yale.'  " Notwithstanding the fact that the  needs of the Boundary district for  power were pointed out in the debate  which took place on this proposed section, the premier made a strong speech  in favor of the Cascade company and  of the adoption of the proposed section  and it was carried in committee, every  member of the executive  voting for it.  " When the bill came up for report  at the next sitting of the house, I  wanted to strike out the section which  Mr. Ross had inserted and insert the  following in lieu thereof :  " 'The lieutenant-governor in council shall have the right from time to  time to fix the maximum and minimum rate or rates which may be  charged by the said company for  power, light and heat supplied, or  which may be supplied by the company  to inhabitants, cities, towns, mines,  smelters, railways and tramways for  any purpose whatever in the districts  of Yale and Kootenay, and the said  company shall not have the right or  power to charge or collect any rate or  charge in excess thereof.'  "This was voted down and as Mr.  Fraser, who had charge of the bill,  would not move the adoption of the  report as the bill then stood, if went  over to the next sitting. ���  ' "At the next sitting Mr. Bowser  moved to strike out all the words after  the word 'Caseade' in the section inserted by Mr. Ross. This carried. As  the section now stood Jt required the  sanction of the government before the  bill came into force, but there was no  assumption ot prior rights by any  other company. The report was then  adopted and Mr Fraser moved that  the bill be read a third time. Mr.  Wright of Ymir objected, and as a bill  cannot be advanced two stages if any  member objects, and as the premier  refused to hold another sitting of the  house the bill was killed.  "The session closed with the government still in power but discredited  by the Kaien island scandal, by the  transparent alliance with the Socialists, by the failure of the government  to observe its pre-election pledges,  especially in the matter of providing  railway facilities to aid in developing  the natural resources of this province.  There is no doubt that disintegration  of the goveonment has set in, as indicated by the resignation of Attorney-  General Wilson and by the dissatisfaction of some of its followers, and it is  doubtful whether it will ever face the  legislature again."

In the early days of Rossland, when  L,e Roi shares were selling at 5 cents,  a shabbily-dressed man entered a small  tailor shop in a small town in Oregon.  " Tailor," he said, " I want a suit of  clothes, but I have no money. If you'll  make me a suit I'll give you 5,000  shares of Le Roi stock."  The tailor demurred at first. He  ���wanted cash, but after a while the  persuasive powers of the miner won  upon him and he accepted the shares  in exchange for the clothes. Three  years passed away. Careful development proved that the Le Roi mine was  a property of great value and w>se  men began to gather in odd blocks of  the stock ; they were able to trace all  the shares except 5,000. Advertisements were inserted-fur the missing  shares, without meeting with a response for a long time. After the  lapse of some months the tailor's eye  happened to meet one of the advertisements. He remembered the 5.000  shares that had been given him for the  suit of clothes and which he had  thrown into an old soap box containing  rubhish. He had forgotten the name  of the mine. In fact, he had regarded  the stock as of no value and the suit as  good as given away. Finally he decided to look at the certificates and to  his joyful surprise found that they  were the identical ones that had been  advertised for and were worth $7 a  share. He surrendered the stock upon  payment of their value and depatted  for the Fatherland.  An almost identical incident has just  developed at San Francisco. A tailor  named Schoenstein went to Tonopah a  little more than a year ago and opened  a tailor shop. "One day," relates  ��� Shoenstein, "a broken gambler came  into my shop. He wasi'blear-eyed and  shaky after a night at the tables, and  broke, but the lust of the game was  still in his blood, and he wanted to  play more.  " 'Bill,' he knew me well; anyw?y,  first nam is go in Tonopah. -Bill,' he  remarked, 'here's s bunch of Tonopah  extension. Give me fifty bones and  it's yours.'  '-My whole capital was $80, but I  decided to buy. I gave him the money  and bought a round of drinks, which  cost me $2 more."  Schoenstein then'went to San Francisco. He left the stock behind when  he changed rooms. He later returned  for it and was informed by the landlady that it had been thrown into the  rubbish in the cellar and might possibly be found there. There in an ash  barrel lay the stock which three weeks  ago was worth $27,500. Schoenstein  put the stock in the bank. Four weeks  ago he received an offer of S2.500 for  the stock. He accepted. A little later  he learned to his sorrow that the stock  was worth $27,500 at the time he sold.  StillJater helearned that Schwab, the  customer for fear of losing a sale.

It is an  assertion  frequently  made  that an article has two t rices, what it  is worth and what it will fetch. Under  certain circumstances this -nay  he the  case, as.for instance, at a forced bank  rupt sale   where   goo Is  maj* be  sold  at one-half their value, but it is  bad  commenetary    on a merchant,  when  business in normal to hear it  stated of  him that he has two prbes'for his goods  what he asks  and  what  he takes foi  them.   Such  a man  gets well known  and for this reason, even when he asks  what is a first price on  an article,   he  rarely succeeds in getting it,  because  customers,    knowing   how he can  be  beaten down in his prices, will not buy  from him until he make some  concession in the price.    How much   better it  would have been had he taken a decided stand at the first and refused to lower his price, even  though  he  lost  the  sale by sodoing.    As some compensation for this, he would have  gained the  respect of the community at large, and  he  would have found that by  degrees,  provided that he adhered to 1 is decision   to have  only  one    price,  he  was  drawing the trade of the most desirable  customers  in' the   town   and  locality,  People like to deal with a matt  of this  kind because they feel that all  his customers  will   be  treated   alike  an>"l  no  favors >r concessions  will be granted  to  one more  than   to  another.

In  a new country people are working daily  for the upbuilding of town, city and dis-'  trict, and for the improvement of the con*-  ditions under which men and women are  called upon to live. Every act of daily life  that tends to bettering one's surroundings  makes directly or indirectly for the inv  provement of society generally. In all this  the local newspaper plays an important  part. Among its local readers it stimulates  an increasing interest in their home city,  keeping them posted on all local happens  ings, and becomes a welcome weekly  messenger, bearing bright and welcome  tidings. Among, its outside readers it  forms a valuable advertising medium  making known the merits, advantages and  prospects of the city and attracting thither  citizens who want employment, business  firms looking for locations, and capitalists  seeking investments. In the upbuilding  of a town, city or district the local paper  is an important factor,    -  |      BOUNDARY CTEEK  TIMES      3  The Boundary Creek Times aims to do  its full and complete share in the upbuilds  ing and improvement of Greenwood and  the Boundary district.

Boundary Dlstrlct-  F. W. Mcl*aine returned Tuesday'  from a business trip to Calgary. He  went by way of Revel stoke and returned via Kootenay Landing and  Nelson. Speaking of business conditions he said that things in Calgary  were quite prosperous and th< people  making lots of money growing wheat.  -"' There is considerable interest shown  in the,wBoundary district generally,"  said Mr. McL-aiiie. "They have a  ivery (good ; opinion of Greenwood  especially, but they are not well posted  as to details. The Granby dividends declared some time age have  gone far to strengthen.confidence, and  the progress of the other smelters is  being closely watched."  Mr. McL,aine is of the opinion that  an, organized!, .effort,, should be made to  advertise the resources of the Boundary among outside cities. ���'There are  lots of farmers, who-have made money  but of wheat growing and. are. looking  for investments, arid if the advantages  ot,Greenwood,ancl vicinity, were made  morc-widely, k��ovrn ..much of.this capital would come in. The 20,000 club in  Nelson is doing this Kind of work and  people in outside places are making  many enquiries. The hotels are actively cooperating and among other  methods employed 'Find out about, the  20,000 Club' is printed on fie menu  cards.  '.'Among other B.

HOW MICA IS-MINED.  Mica is an essential in electrical ap-;  paratus, and has no substitute. It is  produced especially in the land "where  every prospect pleases." India em-f  ploys more persons in mica mining  than any other country, and the area  covered by mica deposits is the largest  known, yielding in 1902, 685 tons froni  .200 mines. The system followed is to  open cuts along the outcrops of the  mines where mica crystals are found  and to alternate with crosscuts at right  angles through the veiu formation!  The materal is raised to the surface by  rows of native women placed along  .the inclined opening* who pass buckets  filled with mica from hand to hand, or  pitchers fille.l with water for draining  the works. The rough sheets are crudely trimmed by a knife, done up into  packages and carried by carts to the  shipping point. The wages paid are  scarcely union labor rates, the women  getting 3d per day, the men 4d and the  overseers 8r  Afflicted With Rheumatism.  "I was and am yet afflicted with  rheumatism," says J. C.Bayne, editor  of the, Herald, Addington, Indian Territory, "but thanks to Chamberlain's  Pain Balm am able once more to attend to business.

The ore shipments for the Boundary  mines for the week ending Thursday  night were 25,706 tons, an increase of  2,916 tons over the previous week. The  largest increase is shown by the  Granby, with 1,810 tons more than last  week, while the- Mother Lode, Emma,  Sunset and Rawhide show small increases. Tha smelter treatment increased 1,910 tons.  THE STOCK MARKET.  Granby shares are quoted in Boston  at $12.87)4. Other shres, especially  Le Roi, show considerable activity,  being quoted in London at ^,'1 lSs. 9d.,  an increase of 4s. 6d, over the quotations of Wednesday, March 21st. There  is considerable demand for Le Roi  stock and the indications point to  higher drices. Rambler-Cariboo continues to be fairly strong and on Wednesday 38% was bid and 40 cents asked.  Canadian Gold Fields syndicate is  quoted in Toronto at 6)4 cents bid, 1)4  cents asked. The following are the  quotations up to Wednesday night,  march 28th :  Work at the Strathmore is going on  in a most satisfactory manner Seven  men are kept steadily at work day and  night. A crosscut on the 60-foot 1-.vel  has opened a fine body of high grade  ore which, H. E. Shafer, the superintendent, states is the best that has yet  been struck in the mine. This showing is most important as it is below all  apparent surface disturbances and adds  to the length of the ore body, as it  trends to the south. The ore body is  over 200 feet long and appearances are  much more encouraging than ever before.  Sinking will be commenced next  week and a first class new shaft will be  made, on the dips of the vein from the  the 60-foot level. At the same time the  shaft will be raised to the surface.  About twenty tons were shipped to the  Trail smelter this week which is expected to run $150 per ton. This is  the first shipment that has been made  for some months, but more are expected to be made at short intervals.  Mr. Shafer is delighted with the prospects and expects the future to ..ring  large returns. In the meantime he is  opening a large area for stoping, and  after    development    work    has   been  pushed well forward he expects to take  out large quantities of ore.  HEI,EN  AND  PRESTON.  Work at the Helen is going on in the  north and south drifts with six men  busy day and night. Both drifts are  opening up a fine body of ore and prospects are bright.  The Preston expects to ship a car  next week. Besides taking out ore  for shipment, development work is  being pushed forward as rapidly as  possible at the 100-foot level. Seven  men are at work and the mine looks  geod at all points.  l,2(X>  MINE. CAMP.
