Year by year the government is  learning more of Cauada's potentialities. Year by year intrepid  spirits are penetrating north and  west, following man's lust for  new treasures and new possessions. There appears no limit to  our national possibilities, and  what a decade will realize cannot  be pictured, what a century  achieve in this land of marvelous  resource(carinpt be dreamed.  We are indebted to Mr. K. J.  Moffatt for a late number of the  Evening Journal of Edmonton,  containing the text of .an address by Mr. Bredin of Atha-  baska, and froni which* we make  generous extracts?  "Within the boundaries of the  region drained by the Mackenzie  into the Arctic ocean, uature has  exhibited a' lavish prodigality in  the dispensation^oE the potentialities that make for nation building. This Northland is, in the  light of science, and present daj-  knowledge, probably as large a  proposition as the Fathers of  Confederation had in view when  they met in; conference in the  ancient city of Quebec. Just as  their most sanguine hopes have  been surpassed in the possibilities  and development of latter day  Canada, so "shall the ambitious  dreams, now confined to a comparative few, reach a large measure of fruition, before the present  generation has passed away.  CLIMAA'E  Cl* NORTHLAND.  "What do we discover on our  .Arctic slope.tq;warran_t the seemingly extravagant claims 'that I  make for it? First, and all important, anomalous, though it  may seem, there is a climate and  elevation, salubriously unexact-  iug on the constitutions of both  man and the domestic animals.  West of longitude 111 and south  of latitude 62 the isothermal line  bends very far northward, giving  a winter climate not any more  excessive than that of our sister  province of Saskatchewan, while  the sunshine is so much greater  that crops ripen earlier than they  do in this latitude of Central Alberta. 1 have come from Fort  St. John to Edmonton, a distance  of six hundred miles, and found  the growing of grain no further  advanced th.au it was at St. John  three weeks before. On the Peace  the chinook blows stronger than  ^riy wh ej-e^he J^n ^  At Fort Lairo\ ail cereals cau be  successfully grown, that will succeed here. ��� At Fort Simpson, 275  miles down the Mackenzie, 1 have  seen all the common vegetables,  including cucumber and cauliflower, matured under exactly the  same system of cultivation that  they would be given here.  agricultural! possibilities.  ���'The most of the couutr}-  draiucd by the Peace, which includes the Smoky and South Pine  valleys, will be found to be excellent agricultural lands.  "Along these.streams are extensive prairies, bedecked in summer with all our common prairie  (lowers. Koscs are as plentilul  north of Peace as they are south  of the Saskatchewan.  "On one small island on Great  Slave lake I found luxuriating all  kinds of small fruits that are to  be fouud within the radius of one  hundred miles of Edmonton.  ��� "To close my observations on  the agricultural capabilities of  Edmonton's Hinterland, kt me  just say that wheat, which was  awarded a gold medal at PhHade'phia in 1S7(',, was grown on  soil, almost universally considered worthless, that is to say.  muskeg._ This particular one,  was drained and cultivated and  gives a fully matured crop of  whatever is planted every year.  This is at Fort Chippewyan."  3,000 MILKS OF WATKKWAY.  "Now, a few remarks on the  waterways. There are three  thousand miles of steam navigation radiating from Fort Smith.  By the construction of less than  twenty miles of canals, all these  three thousand miles of navigable waters can be connected, giving an internal water system perhaps unequalled iu the world.  When the rapids (fifteen miles in  length) on the Lesser Slave river,  are improved, there will be four  hundred miles ' of '���'��� navigation  available on the upper Athabasca  and Lesser Slave Lake. I have  forgotten to state, when alluding  to the Fort Smith system, that  small steamers can also be navigated from .the Mackenzie ninety  miles up the Bear river into Great  Bear lake, which is fifth in size  of the fresh water lakes of the  world. Lakes Athabasca, Great  and Lesser Slave arid Great Bear  are abuudantly stored, with valuable commercial fish, including  White Lake fish, trout inconnu,'  grayling, Arctic trout and herring, besides the coarser varieties  such as pike and pickerel.  "Coal is found in a great many  places over the northwestern  quarter of this province. Extensive beds of coal also exist iu  that part of British Columbia  east of the Rocky mountains and  comprising some 400,000 acres of  good land, which ./inay also be  considered as iu Edmonton's Hinterland.  "All the region lying to the  east of Great Bear lake, Great  SlaA^e lake, Great Slave river and  north of Lake Athabasca has the  same geological formation that  obtains in Northern'Ontario and  Keewatin. Presumably it is  heavily mineralized, and may be  some day the homes \of very extensive mining operations. On  the Peace are large'deposits of  gypsum. There ;are sulphur  springs close to the shore of Great  Slave lake.   .  "From what I have already  said, I think you will believe that  the possibilities of; Edmonton's  Hinterland are practically illimitable and that here, where we  are now gathered, will rise a city  perhaps not second in wealth and  stragetic importance to any place  in the Dominion of Canada."  WORDS OF PRAISE  Mr. E. A.

THE BASE BALL CLUB  A meeting is called for Tuesday evening-next, 26th inst., in the Fire hall,  of all those interested in the great  game of base ball It is hoped that  Greenwood will have a team in 1907  that will eclipse anything in the past.  The first thing to do is to show up at  this meeting. There ought to be players enough within the club and enthusiastic support sufficient behind it  to make the Greenwood Base Ball club  a success. Begin the season right.  Show up at this meeting, enrol for  membership, and if chosen on a team  for any event attend to practice suffic-  ienjt to keep eye and hand and muscle  in condition.

STOOD THE SHOCK  On March 14th Wall street had its  most severe shaking up since May 9,  1901. Stocks fell with lightning-like  rapidity. All Harrtman stocks particularly lost values of from 25 to 30 per  cent of those prevailing a month  previously.  During the storm, however, it was  noticed that one stock remained conspicuous by the steadiness with which  it held its own. ��� That stock was Canadian Pacific. 'Willi shareholders scattered all over Europe :md America, it  is proof against the juggling methods  of the wizards of Wall street.  THE BOUNDARY CLUB  Is Hailed Before the Police  Magistrate  FOR    SELLING    LIQUORS  Without First Obtaining the Necessary  Permission to Do So���A  Vexed Question.  Police Magistrate Hallett was  busy the early part of this week  inquiring- into the conduct and  management of the Boundary  Club.  The case came up on complaint  of John Mulheriu, who from his  evinence, appears to have acted  as a city detective. The charge  was laid against Thomas Russell  aud David McLaren, who plead  in defense that they were conducting a regularly organized and  conducted club.  Russell claims to be tbe secretary-treasurer and McLaren steward of such club, holding their  positions by warrant of the club.  J. P. McLeod appeared for the  prosecution and David Whiteside  of Grand Forks, for the  defence.  A number of witnesses for the  prosecution and the defence were  examined.  The Boundary Club was organized in March, 1904, under the  Benevolent Societies' Act, its alleged purpose being in the interest of its-members, in the line of  mental aud moral improvement  and healthful recreation*  The purpose of the prosecution  apparently was to prove that the  original intent of the club had  miscarried, and that at present it  was conducted merely as a partnership by the men - charged, and  for their sole benefit and emolument. A mass of evidence on  charter, constitution, by-laws,  minutes and methods of doing  business, soon accumulated.  The defence sought to establish that the. business was conducted as a club enterprise, and  that all business was conducted  in the name of the club and for  its benefit.  Its methods of buying liquors,  pa}*iug rent and securing insurance were instanced in defence.  No denial of the charge of selling liquors was attempted, but it  was sought to be proved that such  were sold only to members of the  club, or those believed to be members.  A good deal of mist seemed to  gather about the club's officers  and its methods as a corporate  body. The findings of the police magistrate * appeared to be  that the case was proven, but as  the club had recently changed  hands, a fine on those just  launched in the enterprise would  be rather drastic.  It is tbe intention of the magistrate to lay the evidence taken  before the police commissioners,  who will doubtless place the same  PAY ORE COLUMN  Nearly 5,000 tons of ore daily are  now being reduced in the smelters of  the Boundary.  Two of the 600 ton furnaces of the  B. C. Copper Co.'s plant are in commission doing very satisfactory work.  The Ruby Fraction, at Boundary  Falls, coutinues with development now  going on, to give promise of becoming  a valuable high grade property.  The Strathmore has two cars of high  grade ore out for shipment, but the  same cannot be forwarded in the present condition of the road to the  mine.  Two small furnaces, aggregating  about 700 tons daily, are iu blast at  Boundary Falls. The big furnace that  will double the plant's capacity is Hearing completion.  BIG GAME PRESERVE  Suggested   by  Associated  Boards  IN   ELK  RIVER   REGION  The Time Considered Opportune to  Take Up this Question While as  Yet Game Abounds,   i,,  J. W. Nelson is cheered in his sick  room'by the report that his partner,  Kambo, lias struck the Rambler lead  iu the new tunnel that was being run  to cut it at considerable depth,  It looks as if Copper Camp would, in  the near future, become a live asset of  the city. Possibly the best camp in  the district, circumstances hive kept it  in the back ground. Now, however,  arrangements have been completed by  one of the owners to proceed with the  opening up of the Last Chance, adjoining the Big Copper, Once a beginning has been made there, large  developments are sure to follow.  INDIGNATION MEETING  before the g^vermrTeiTfr  The case is evidently a movement on the part of the city to  get the matter before the attorney  general with a view to having  the club's incorporation papers  cancelled.  Within the last few years similarly empowered clubs in Fernie,  Kamioops and Vancouver have  beeu obliged to close   their doors.  An indignation meeting of all the  trout left in Boundary creek is to be  called in the near future. It seams  that, having heard that laws in Canada  were made to be observed, and know  ing that they were' protected from the  fishermen by law until the 25th inst.,  they were not looking for the trouble  that befell about 40 of them one day  ecentiy, .Disporting along the stream  they observed that feedingcj n the" meat  line looked better than usual, and decided to take a bite. They took it, but  but there was a man on the bank in  every instance, who appeared to have  a string on it, with the result: that .40  less trout are left in tho stream to  mourn the loss of their more festive  -friends. Will the man-'-whd : cau-g-ht:  them come forward for the acknowledgment he deserves?  WHAT THEY THINK  CANADIAN MINING JOURNAL  ASK. AND YE SHALL RECEIVE  That our neighbor at the Forks be-  lives firmly in the policy of asking for  things and tncii forthwith believing  that it will receive, is evidenced by a  report sent out to various papers as  follows:  "Following the report that there is  every likelihood of the Great Northern  railway making Grand Forks its divisional point comes tlie word that there  '.s every reason to believe that*1 the C.  P. K. will move its roundhouss from  Eholt to Grand Forks at once. Some  local C. cP. R. officials, being interviewed on the subject, said that they  were not in a position to deny the report. With two divisional pcints located at Grand Forks and a big union  depot situated right in the center of the  city, as a mattei of course, the distributing point for the Boundary district  would be here. It is generally believed  that these most important railway  changes will be completed within the  next sixty days.*'  Don't overlook the words "likelihood?' '���believe," "not able to deny,"  etc.    But, pshaw,Jit reads all right.  We are in receipt of Vol. I. No. 1,  new series of the Canadian Mining  Journal.  The new paper is a bi-wcctcly devoted to mining, milling and metallurgy. The Canadian Mining Review,  for twenty-three years the leading  mining journal of Canada, has been  merged in the new publication,  This issue before us is a tine product  of the printer's art, well edited and  finely illustrated. Its field is Canada,  its work the dissemination of legitimate mining news.  The front cover shows a block of cobalt ore in three colors, cobalt bloom  in pink, nickel bloom in green and native silver, and is a most handsome introduction to a most interesting journal.  EXPERIMENTAL FARM  Now that the question of an experimental farm in the dry belt of British  Columbia is being urged on the government and reported to be under consideration, the merits of different localities are being discussed, and the  Kootenays, Kamioops and Okanagan  districts are busy setting forth the  claims of their respective section*.  While we have no doubt that the government will study this matter entirely  from an independent standpoint and  locale the farm where it may most,  effectively demonstrate the purpose  intended, we would like to urge the  claims of the Okanagan as the most  desirable iu every way.  Mr.. T. Stewart Palmer, who left  .Greenwood last July, returned on Monday last from an extensive trip to  Europe. Most of his time was spent  in Belgium.' He made a long visit with  his father, Prof. Thomas Palmer of  Liege University, and incldjntlly met  many men prominent in business  affairs. He represents that the Belgians, awakened to the mineral resources of C.inada by the exhibition  made by the Canadian government at  the Liege exposition, are inquiring  into its mineral deposits, particularly  its iron and zinc. Experts visited  Canada for this purpose last year and  more are coming this year. From  sampjcs^subinitted^to-test���they'foriH^a"  very favorable opinion of our iron ore6  and if reasonable freight rates were  available would ,be attracted here for  much of their supplies.  Although the Belgians are one of  the foremost nations of tbe world in  the matter of technical aud industrial  schools, which turn out competent  workmen, skilled labor docs not command a high wage, a dollar a day  tanking as high wages.  ��� He reports that the showing made by  British Columbia in the London Fruit  exhibit last fall, and the good work of  Agent Turner in London is responsible for a greatly increased interest in  the agricultural and horticultural possibilities of Canada, and that large  numbers are being attracted Canada-  way. London remains undisturbed,  however, over Canadian mineral showings, believing that nothing of real  merit will be allowed by shrewd Americans to be offered so far away from  home.  At the recent meeting of the  Associated Boards of Trade the  matter of a game preserve in the  Kootenay countn- was brought  tip and on resolution a memorial  was presented to . the local government asking that the same be  inquired into and steps taken at  once in order "that the game of  the district be preserved before it  is too late. There were present  at the Board men who had hunted in the region outlined'and  who spoke glowingly of the  herds of elk aud Jlocks of mountain sheep and goat yet to be  found there, but subject tocxtcri-  mation hj the ruthless Indian  and the not less ruthless white.  A very opportune support to the  Board's attitude in the case,  comes now from Dr. W. T. llor-  naday, who has written the gov- *  ernment urging the case on to its  attention. Dr. Horhaday is an  enthusiastic sportsman who is  familiar with the country, and  the author of a very interesting  book entitled "Camp Fires in the  Rockies." We are not in position to state that the reserves as  prepared by the Board and the  Doctor are identical but for the  purpose intended may be so regarded.  .The Doctor suggests as a reserve an  area of 450 square miles and lying between Sulphur and Wilson creeks on  the north and southland Elk aud Bull  rivers on the east and west. The land  is sparsely timbered and so far as explorations have extended is devoid of  coal and mineral wealth. The region  is described as a veritable wonderland  of beautiful scenery and is now reasonably well stocked with';most of the  .large specimens pf. gajme found in tha  Rocky' mptiiifaia' region'.'"''-3f immediately set aside as a reservation and  protected by wardens the region will  soon be a paradise for wild life and for  camping parties desiring to enjoy both  the scenery and .the chase.  The area covered is believed to be  worthless from a farming or mining  standpoint and embraces within it both  summer and winter ranges.  If such a reservation can be set aside  without impending the work of settlement and development, the Province  will have secured an asset therein that  will grow more valuable each year and  bring to the country yearly large sums  of money for the sport that [would be  available under proper safeguards and  conditions,  For nice fresh flowers for funerals  decorations and weddings, write r>r te  ephone Spakanc Florist Co., M.iin 5,  Spokane. 5-30  THE COUNCIL  At the meeting of the City Council  on Monday night last, requests were  put in for sidewalks from Deadwood  street to the C. P. K. station, and along  Silver and Mammont streets. The  council will investigate.  By -law 123 was report-id as amended.  This by-law deals entirely with water  rates and methods of payment.  The complaint of Holmes & Kennedy  regarding frozen water pipes, was referred to the superintendent of water  works for investigation and report.  It was reported to the council that  the electric fire alatm system would be  completed in about ten days.  The city engineer was instructed to  complete the plans of the city water  works with the least possible delay.  The request of the Fire department  for increased and improved apparatus  was referred to a committee for investigation as lo cost.  ^Th'c"propbsiiiolrtb"giveaevery ni3n or~  woman over 65 years of age,'a pension,  is now being discussed by the British  House of Commons. It is figured that  the number of people who will accept  this pension, amounting- to St.25 per  week, will make a permanent annual  charge ou the revenue of about $75,-  000,000.

The 1906 shipments were 1,161,537 tons,  and that of 1907 will be a large gain  thereon.

FRIDAY, MARCH 22    l>)07  HEARING THE CALL  That Greenwood is fast devel-  -ing into a Business Mens'  ormal school becomes more apparent every day. A large number of those who have made successes here are becoming interested elsewhere. Are the home  opportunities too limited, or is  the outside call too Joud and luring? Wc have studied the matter, but cannot reply, but the fact  remains that other, possibly  broader and more promising fields  are claiming them. But others  are taking their places in the  business life of the town. The  sh o vv���th at^meu j.vha_at  Collins, ex-manager of the  Golden Crown, Athelstan aud  Dominion Copper company's  mines, yearning for more sea  room, has sold his home and plans  to go down to the great ocean.  Ehrlich, who built up the  great Boundary business for P.  Burns &. Co., iu seeking for  greater scope heard the seductive  call of the Tiger Mercantile company, and has moved to Mullau,  Idaho.  Galloway, tiring of townsites  and mines, and yearning for the  soil, has purchased a $15,000 farm  in the Kettle valley and seeks  content in the raising of short  horns aud the cultivation of fine  fruit.  Aud so on, aud so on. Graduating all into bigger, broader  things, bigger, broader places,  and we doubt not they will make  good.  But disquieting as is the  thought of this removal of many  of our best men, the comforting  reflections come that they who  succeed to the work these have  laid down come at an ^opportune  time to an inviting field. This  process of change and assimilation is going on everywhere.  The townsmen on the coast and  the ranchers of the Okanagan  a;re"cleaning*='up^to=-the-meu��of=  means from Mauitoba, even as  they cleaned up to newcomers  from the east and south.  The Boundary' has beeu kind  to all these we have named. We  lose them with regret, but realize  that their graduation into greater  possibilities only makes room for  those who succeed them.

Those  who knew him best cwill speak  most highly of his virtues and  mourn most deeply the sudden  ending to a useful life.  Last Sunday quite a number  of our citizens were wearing the  green in memory of St. Patrick,  born in Scotland, canonized in  Irelaud, and revered the world  round. The work he did for Ireland and humanity 15 ceuturies  ago has stood the shock of ages.  The Lord's Day Act is now the  burning question all over British  Columbia. Boards of Trade are  resolving and re-resolving, its  equalities, and inequalities are  being pointed out. Meantime the  act, supposedly in force, doesn't  seem to be commanding the measure of respect any  law deserves.  It was too much to ask the  maker of maple sugar to lose his.  Sunday's sap, or to provide vessels large enough to hold the run  of two days, or to add to the  force employed and gather in the  sweet juice on -Saturday night,  and so maple sugar making was  exempted from the operations of  the Lord's Day Act. The mining industry pales into iusignifi-  catice with the great maple sugar  enterprise of the Dominion.  THE NEW AMBASSADOR  PROFESSIONAL CARDS.  /. H.

Frederic W, McLaine,  District Agent, Greenwood, B?C.  STME QFFIGE  ��� The Grand Trunk's methods of  making up claims against the  government does't seem to merit  the approval of the auditing  brauch of the finance department  at Ottawa. The road seems to  be calling on the .government to  put up in connection with charges  that are not considered properly  chargeable.  It is little wonder that the San  -Er-anciscoXAli^r��.*>px|f*Tw3l2-=E5-l  sent to  interview a judge  of the  superior  court,   and  who   found  himself locked iu the room with  the judge drunk and brandishing  a revolver, forgot just what was  said on both sides. It would have  been   more   comfortable,   if  not  more edifying, to have found him  drunk and asleep.  We sympathize with the attitude taken by President Buchanan  at the recent meeting of. the Associated Boards. On Thursday  evening the board went on record  in the matter of the Lord's Day  Act, passing a resolution seeking  relief from its operations and directing the executive committee  in the matter. President Buchanan spoke strongly against  the resolution and defended the  iutent of the law as worthy the  consideration and support of the  country's best citizenship. But  the majority was in no mood to  compromise,    and   although    the  Wk don't blame the Sultan of  Turkey for wanting to see the  bonds of friendship between Britain and Turkey preserved. Just  as the first-class Dnations with  whom Russia broke faith allowed little Japan to administer  a rebuke to the great bear, so  some day some little fellow will  take a fall out of the terrible  Turk, while the big ones look on.  How Viewed by tiie Press of the United  States.  England has just paid to Uncle Sam  the greatest compliment of his diplomatic history.  Johnny Bull takes off his hat and  announces that in the importance of its  relations with England the United  States is the foremost government of  the world.  This announcement has not been  made in so many words, but in a far  more substantial manner. Its truth is  attested in solid cash, for besides picking out one of its foremost citizens as  ambasbador, England has just raised  his salary till it is the highest paid any  diplomat iu the service of King Edward.  Mr, Bi-yce, who has just taken possession of the British embassy, .will  get ��50,000 salary eve-iy year that he  represents England in this country.  This is as much money as goes to  President Roosevelt for conducting the  affairs of this nation. It is three times  as much as Ambassador Reid, who  represents Uncle dam at the court of  St. James, gets for his year's toil.  But a fact far more important is that  theSSO.OOO'stipend is S5-000 more than  the English ambassador to France is  paid, and he who was heretofore rankea  as the most important of British diplo-  mate.  This ii a most profound recognition'  of the position of commanding impott-  auce the United States has taken in the  world's councils.  ���When, after the struggle for freedom  in. the days of '76 the arms of the American colonists had'been crowned with  victory and the mother, country grudgingly conceding independence, sent a  minister to the new republic/that'individual was counted one of the least  significant of English diplomats, and  probably thought himself lucky to  draw 1,000 pouuds per year.  ���Even till the triumphant ending of  the war of tlie rebellion proved the  eudurrng capacity of the young republic and demonstrated a fighting power  that Europe.had not dreamed of, Britain still adopted the altitude of indifference, sometimes unconcealed contempt for the government at Washington, and the mtn who came here were  not only of minor caliber socially and  mentally, but were underpaid compared  with the diplomats for the mother  country at Berlin, Paris, St. Petersburg and Vienna  ���The= co m ui g^o LJiLa uueefo (e^tavjeda.  new era, that was completed when the  Spanish American war forced the  United States "to the forefront diplomatically, and forged chains of friendship between the United States and  Great Britain that had not up to the  time been doomed a possibility.  For many years Washington was  ranked with St'. Petersburg as a post  of diplomatic importance, and the  salatv was the same, 539,000, but now  it has gone into the lead, and Bryce is  the costliest man among Britain's envoys.  Men working on a roci< drill in a hot  "end" or "rise" in a mine, have the  great advantage that the air is kept in  constant motion by the e.\l aust from  j the drill,'and that as this exhaust air  I is vei-y dry the wet bulb thermometer  at the woi king places is con.siderably  reduced, even if th; roc it be wet or  damped by a jet or spray of w;itei to  prevent dti^t.

Such a service would be not only of  great advantage to Canada, and tlie  best possible advertisement that the  country could have, but I am convinced  that it would orove a commercial success to the company which provides it.  What we want, aud what we must  have, is an Atlantic service equal in  every particular to any line of steamships running to New York���tqual, in  fact, in point of speed, acconunodati-jii,  comfort and safety, to the two new  liners which the Cunard company is  building under what is practically a  subsidy from the British government.

"SS3a^j*3*S222^!^22��E��  The first lot of Salvation army immigrants for the year, numbering about  1,100, arrived in Canada this week. The  majority of this year's arrivals will be  a superior lot of people the army officers allege, most of them being acquainted with farm life and being in  position to,pay their otvn fares.  Already over 2,000 applications have  been received from the western part of  Canada for farm hands, offering wages  from S10 to $35 a month for these recruits. That the army exercises discretion in the selection of its people is  evident from the fact that out of over  2,000 hitherto brought out, the Dom in  ion authorities found it necessary to  deport only 19 as being undesirable.  rei-e^s^C:.*-.T>'  '*y^*#* .

"But the province of British Columbia, in its climate, in the possibility of  the growth of semi tropical fruits, in  its natural resources, timber, mineral  and fish, is, in my opinion, as I have  said before, more favorably ' endowed  by nature than any other psovince in  Canada.
