ENDELL SCO  FURNISHINGS  DOMINION  SMELTER  Large Improvements Under  Way���New Furnace  $20,000  IN   MACHINERY  DRY GOODS  ���������maat-Bn-BBBRwafi  An Up-to-Date Eauipment for Shops  and Smithy���New Spur Track-  More Power Wanted.  "What effect will the defeat of the  West Kootenay bill have upon your  operations here?" Superintendent  Thomas of ihe Dominion smelter at  Boundary Falls was asked by a representative of The Times. "I cannot  state at present what the effect will  be," said Mr. Thomas. "It is certain,  however, that it will make a big difference. We have ordered a large  quantity of electric machinery for our  new machine shop and it will arrive  here next week. But with the present  supply of power it will be useless, and  unless Imore power can be secured it  will mean a loss of many thousand-  dollars." Mr. Thomas further stated  that it would be necessary to install a  new boiler in the meantime and this  would mean a large expense that will  be practically useless when the electric power is eventually increased.  UK. DKUMMOND SPEAKS.  Speaking with Mr. Drummond,  manager for the company, it was  learned that great doubt existed among  the members of the company as to  what improvements would be ' made  this summer. A contract has been  let to the Taylor Engineering com ���,  pany of New YorK for a giant copper  matting"furnace,'48x204 in'ches'jinsiae''  the jackets. This and other machinery  costing close to $20,000 had been ordered, and is now being delivered with  with the expectation that an adequate  supply of electric power would be  secured. Whether or not this machinery wonld be made use of Mr.  Drummond was not in a position to  state, but in any case great loss would  be entailed. The present supply of  power is insufficient to meet the demands of the smelter and mines, and  Mr. Drummond stated that 1,000 horsepower more is needed and he did not  believe it could be secured. If the  company determines to use the new  machinery the present steam plant will  have to be enlarged, entailing heavy  expense andaddinglargely^tbthe'coit"  of operating. The officials of the company are much disappointed^over the  turn affairs have taken and frankly  state the whole future of their plant as  well as the im mediate i m pro vemen ts  are very largely influenced and at  present seriously handicapped by the  lack of power.  In spite of all difficulties some improvements will be made in the plant  this summer. Negotiations are now  going on with the C. P. K. for a new  spur between the dump yard and the  creek. The object of this is to facilitate the handling of the matte. At  present this has to be elevated and  conveyed to the cars on the old spur.  When the new spur is completed the  matte will be handled direct from the  moulds to the cars down a gentle incline. The new furnace which has  been ordered will double the capacity  of the plant. At present the output  averages 600 tons per day, but when  the improvements have been installed  this will be increased to 1200 tons per  day. This will of course cause greater  activity in the mines and will employ  extra men in all departments of the  company's plants.0 The present staff  at the smelter includes 120 men. This  will probably be increased to 175.  A large machine shop has just been  erected and is awaiting the arrival of  the new machinery. It is a substantially constructed building with heavy  timbers, well braced, and numerous  windows supply plenty of light, Under the same roof and situated nearest  the smelter is the new blacksmith  shop. This as well as the machine  shop,will be equipped with the laxest  machinery and when completed will be  sufficient to meet the requirements of  the plant.     In  the   blacksmith   shop  there will be a pit where the locomotive will be repaired and kept in perfect rnnning order. Just outside a  chute has been erected for the coal  supply.  A noticeable feature about the whole  plant is its convenient arrangement,  All the departments are so arranged  that the -vorkois carried on, not with  hurry or confusion, but rather with  care, order and precision. The floors  are all smooth and level and are kept  free from refuse ordroppings.' The new  ore bins recently constructed are now  in use and have added to the general  capacity and convenience.  In discussing the question of the  Great Northern with the smelter officials, they stated they knew nothing  of the railway's plans. They were  naturally anxious that the ��� road should  build, as it would be a great convenience in hauling ore from Phoenix and  in securing freight from the American  side. It would also create competition  for freight. Mr. Drummond was asked  what were the company's plans regarding a new smelter at Greenwood or  Midway but he would make no statement other than there was nothing  definite. "It is understood that the  G. N.wants you to move to Midway."  '���There has no proposition been  made," said Mr. Drummond, "and we  are pretty well fixed here. I don't  know what will be dona."

A small fire occurred this morning  about 10 o'clock in the building formerly occupied by the Independent  Meat Market. A small hole was  burned in the roof but otherwise no  damage was done. The lite brigade  was called out but their services were  not required. Some delay was caused  by the team becoming in fractious.  After they were hitched to the hose  wagon they pranced around and refused to budge. The driver eventually got them started and drove down  the Greenwood street hill at a lively  pace. By this time most of the people  down town had started for the scene of  the fire and for a few minutes Copper  street took on the appearance of a busy  city. The driver showed considerable  skill in handling his team and the fire  laddies responded promptly. The alarm  served a good purpos* in giving the  brigade practice and the fire was fortunately slight.  THE BILL DEFEATED  After Long Fight Kootenay  Company Loses Case]  YMIR   MEMBER OBJECTS  Wright Opposes Third Reading and  the House Prorogues Before Another Chance Is Given.  With the proroguing of the provincial legislature came the defeat of the  West Kootenay Power and Light company's bill for the extensions of their  righto so as to include the distribution  of power in Yale county. The contest  was a long and fiercely fought one.  The West Kootenay company fighting  for greater powers and the Cascade  company fighting for self protection  with the floor of the house as the battle  ground. The bill had been introduced,  read a second time, passed through  the committee stage where it was submitted to expert criticism and was reported to the house for the third reading in the last hours of the session. It  is probable that the bill would have  passed and have become law had not  H.Wright of Ymir abjected. Wright's  objections blocked the bill and the  government did not consider it im"  portant enough to prolong the session  so that it might be taken up at another  sitting. Duiing the whole of the session the objecting member has not  been conspicuous for his activity, for,  beyond asking a few questions, he has  done little to earn his sessional allowance and the confidence of  his constituents,., but. at. the, last,  motaenl;-as".-a -longs fought "-bill^wa*  about to pass, his feeble voice was  raised and the business of a parliament  and the interests of an important industry was blocKed. The defeat of the  bill by the mere fact that no vote  could be taken on it' unless the pro-  rouging of the house be postponed was  the feature of the closing session.  On Saturday there was a long debate on this bill, champions of the  Cascade company insisting on restrictions being placed on the West Kootenay to protect the interests oof the  the other. Finally the following  amendment was inserted :  "Before exercising any of these  rights, powers and privileges by the  act given or conferred the West Kootenay Power and Light company, iimlt-^  ed, shall obtain from the lieutanant-  governor in council, the sanction of  the lieutenant-governor in council, who  shall impose such terms as be just and  equitable after taking into consideration the rights, power, privileges and  property (if any) now enjoyed by any  other company at present operating  and supplying light, heat and power  in the s.iid district of Yale."  The West Kootenay company objected to the passage of the bill with  this amendment and tried to withdraw  it, but the majority refused to allsw  this and insisted on its being passed  with the above clause tacked on. Today's proceedings were fatal to the  measure, as stated.  The defeat of this bill will probably  have some effect on the local smelter  companies' supply of power, but as  both F. Keffer and J. E. McAllister of  the B. C. Copper company are out of  the city, no statement could be secured  from the company.  James E. McCauley, president of the  Holland Gold���Copper Mining company, owning properties situated on  the west slope of Copper mountain, on  the Similkameen river in vicinity|of the  Princeton. B.C,announces that sufficent  funds have been securd to resume work  on the company's properties and that  its further development will be commenced as soon as the snow has left  the ground, in speaking of the future  development of the property. Mr. McCauley said; "I will put a force of rata  to work immeadiately and expect to  have ore ready to ship by the time the  rails are laid on the V. V, & E. and intend shipping steadily."

The Yale Columbia Lumber company at Westbridge have two camps at  work, one under their own.supervision  and one under sub co ltract, getting  out logs. It is estimated that the output will run close to,eight million feet  of logs. These will be held; until the  high water commences when they will  be driven down the Kettle river to Cascade, where the large timbers will be  converted into lumber and the smaller  vnto railway ties.  The new traffic bridge at Rock  Creek over the Kettle river is now  under construction. This bridge is  being built by the government for the  convenience of the wagon traffic aud  it will take the place of the present  one which has beeu in a delapidated  condition for many months.

VESTED INTERESTS.  In a recent issue The Times  published an editorial entitled  " Vested Interests and the Power  Question," dealing; with the need  for more power in the Boundary.  At the beginning of the editorial  reference was made to the undignified manner in which The  Week, published in Victoria, had  dealt- withTthe- "sahie~"question7  calling the West Kootenay Power  and Light Co. a "hog" and a  ." buccaneer." Under the heading of "Vested Rights" The  Week replies to The Times as  follows:  "The Boundary Creek Times  takes exception to the title by  which The Week designated the  West Kootenay Power and Light  Company in last issue. If our  esteemed contemporary will read  the letter of our Kootenay correspondent in the current issue he  will find full justification for the  course we pursued. We are as  anxious as our contemporary for  the Boundary to have all the  electric power required, and said  so, but by common consent the  bill as submitted would have  ruined the Cascade Company.  We advocated government control  of . rates. The Week always  fights for the 'under dog'."  The Nelson article referred to  applauds The Week's reference  the "Kootenay Hog" and admits  that the West Kootenay Power  and Lip-Tit Co. is not particularly  popular in Nelson. It is not to  be expected that a Nelson correspondent would spend much  time or space fighting for the interests of the Boundary district.  It is gratifying, however, to note  that both The Week and its Nelson correspondent favor government control of rates.  Midway, March 15.���Baseball enthusiasts are making preparations for  the baseball season and u club has  been organized ready to start the game  as soon as the weather permits.

TfteWeel Madlein* Co., VTisaaa. oafeatov  New York reports that in men's hats  for spring and summer manufacturers  have produced a greater variety than  in many preceding years. Early spring  days call forth light-colored derbys and  soft felts. A well known shop is showing a smart derby in light brown or  Java color, with band and binding to  match. The block follows the dimensions of the regular black derby, with  its variations from one season to the  next. This year the crown is a quarter of an inch lower than ��� last. It begins at five inches and stops at five  and three-quarters. Brims are set flat  instead of rolling, which gives them a  wider appearance. Light gray, will  band and binding to match, is anothei  noveltv. Darker shades of gray ar*  trimmed with black and a very light  pearl gray has a dove colored band and  binding. Black derbies have narrow  grosgrain bands and brim bindings.  Aside from this there is little difference in the new stvles, save for th-  height of the crown and the flat of tin-  brim.  Of soft hats there is an entiles*, variety of shapes, including Alpine or tour  1st hats, combinaton or telespope hat.-  atid the round felt with slightly rollin.L-  brim and crushed crown One of the  unusnal styles in a tourist's hat is  modelled after the regulation Alpine,  with slightly increased height of  crown. The color is the slate, and the  wide silk band is black; the edge of the  brim is raw and curled to the extent of  about a quarter of an inch. The same  hat comes in light grey with while  band and binding, the latter being extremely rare. Another soft felt sliowi.  is made of pearl grey felt, with band  and bind'ng of a darker tone. Th'.-  brim has a decided curl at the edges  and Lhe back turns up in ��� such a man-  nerthat it~c6inpleteiy_hicles"the wid*-  band-  ��RY GOOD NOTES.

The vogue of narrow neckweai  comes to us this time from London,  where it is quite the rage,  Gilt or nickel buttoms have recently  been put on the market for the front  of tailored shirt waists.  Corded handkerchiefs are in excel  lent demand, especilly those shpwin-.-  hand.embroidered initals.  The rage for narrow Valcnciennr.-  lace has filled up the summer dress.-  and bubbled over on the hats ant  parasols.  Some new pocketbooks which the  city stores are showing show a leathc-i  strap on top which can be lengtthen< 6  if desired.  Fancy buttons of contrasting color  or to match, are much in vogue. Very  few plain buttons are used on gowns.  Lace hats will replace the embroidered linen hats of last summer. They  are made of narrow lace, ruffled close  upon chiffon frames.

By planning  to tako ofl��a hatch at the right time, you may  have plenty of broilers to sell when broilers  are scarce and prices at the top notch.

The hen is a careless mother, often leading her  chicks amongst wet grass, bushes, and in places  where rats can confiscate her young.

TRUTH  STRONG ENOUGH  The Gilt-Edged Opportunities of Brit-  '      Columbia Need No Colored  Statements-  The following- letter on the follies of  fake mining- deals was first pulished  iti the Smilkameen Star:  Editor Star���Sir: Anyone that has  examined mines long- for himself,or  others will. I believe readily admit  that it is far more easy to obtain capital than it is to secure a prospect or  mine that will bear out what it is represented to  be   and   a   business pro-  . position with it. This statement may  cause surpise to many cliam owners  and good prospectors,moat of whom see  little of the commerial side of life and  who have been repeatedlv .baffled in  every attempt to get financial aid for  properties of merit, but it is a cold fact  conoeded by all posted in mining  affairs.  A defective title, huge commissions  ��� over and above the net price, unbusi-  ncss like propositions the promoter's  utter lack of experience, principle, or  influence are a few of the burdens that  the legitimate side of mining has to  bear and are the cause of many failures  in the sale of mines. But in an experience of over   forty  years  in   most  ,of the great camps in the examination  ; of prospects and mine's in  all   stages  of development and conditons,  includ-  ?ing many fruitless trips with their  attendant cost and hardship, convinee  me that the climax of all obstacles   in  _ the successful disposition of a mine or  , in securing funds is: misrepresentation. It matters little whether it is  done by accident or design or from a  standpoint of policy it is ultimately as  foolish as it is futile and leaves in its  wake a train of evils that at times  almost staggers faith in humanity,  and it is today the most serious problem that the great mining industry  has to   contend with  The profession of the man who is by  nature and experience equipped to in-  ���'��� spect a mine, note all the   strong   and  weak factors of the district and   make  . an honest, clean cut report and protect  his principes, is a rare and valuable  acquisition. The leaser is the best expert in the world. He usually repre  seats all the factors that develop high  grade prospects into big camps. The  ability that-fits a man to inspect mining property compels  him to be a keen  ' judge of men as well as of rock���the  former is by far the most difficult  puzzle to solve. There is no laboratory in which the various specimens .of  lunacy can be analyzed that we must  often~coine in-contact-with?especially  when greed constitutes one of the chief  factors. This honest bu*. sometimes  visionary, type of man forms, a factor  in the evil we have to deal with in  mining life. This intense spirit of  greed,   mingled  as   it   often   is, with  . various forms and degrees of insanity,  ���"' starts at the top of the system, per-  ���meates every strata of social and business   life,   infuses   itself   into   every  ': process -of mining and industrial  life, on down till it enters into  and mingles with the tailings of  humanity? The number of people  afflicted by this malady are more num-  3 erous than supposed, and infest every  community, l  There are also many forms of intoxication that are not caused by drinking adulterated whiskey. People who  are supposed to be sober and in a  normal state of mind do such mean  and foolish things that the average  drunkard acts like asensible man compared with them. From j the moment  these strange hallucinations take possession of a certain class of people and  become   identified   with a   mine   they  it  dissolve partship with all the common  and business sense they possess, be-  leiving there is no futher use for grey,  matter that it is all luck. Nature seems  to liatre equipped them to act the fool  for the benefit of the mining fakir,  ,-. who manipulates these crude notions  relative to mines to his own advantage  and to the ditriment of the camp and  the sore disapointment of many.  That is one factor in the game���they  are the anvil to receive blows, the  other side is the hammer to give the  blows and exists in shape of a combination or ring composed of a fiscal  agent, an engineer and chemist somewhat   careless   of   their   professional  honer, a protessor or geologist filled  with far fetched and technical.phrases,  a pretended prospector who delvelops  his claims usually and forever with  an axe and pencil. These usually  complete the ring, all of whom are  filled with everything except.a knowledge of mines and ore. The strange  part of it is that no hitman effort can  induce this clique to select or accept  a property of any merit. If such were  the ease it would condone the crime to  some extent and lead to the discovery  of a mine. Thev surround their tale  with a halo of myth and like the gold  brick swindle they rarely approach the  liberal spirited man of affairs but select  the most penurious man in the community who is insanely avaricious and  thinks he is buying $1000 in gold for  $100, knowing he is robbing some one  of $900. He is as guilty as the operator and if the mischief stopped here no  great harm would be done, One must  feel the need of supernatural power to  even check this torrent of corruption  and ignorance that attached iiself to  mining and medicine, both prolific  fields for the vendor of quack schemes.  This province has done much to discourage exaggerated report of mines  but continual effort and vigilance is  the price of success. The truth is  grand enough here. It surpasses the'  fiction of other places. But misrepresentation will injure and shackle progress for the mines, or men who use it.  It will tend to destroy confidence  among responsible intending investors  who are needed and whom we must  look for in the old cities of wealth.  After all, the progess of the indrutrial  and commercial world rests upon confidence, labor and honor more than  upon money. Every lie destroys confidence, every truth builds it up���the  truth is genuine, the lie is spurious  therefore the conflict between honest  methods in mining and fakes resem-  ble..'hedfference between the counterfeit and the genuine dollar.  The struggles and failures and  grand successes of mining life arc the  same as in other occupations. The  wostern world owes its wealth and  civilization to the pioneers of mining.  The same business factors that created  the millions of Marshall Field make  millior.s for W. A. Clark. Geo.Hearst's  name would sell a mine in the East or  in London. Honor and human nature  are the same in a mining camp as in  New York or London, wth a few  good attributes in favor of the miner.  There is one law that leads to success  for those who desire to sell or develop  mines on reasonable terms. A misep-  resentation cannot be long concealed  but terms can always be modified.  The resources of; B. C. from a mineral and agricultural and climatic  point of view are without a parallel^in  the western world. This fact is begin-  ing to dawn on the outside world and  is admitted by all who are familiar  with the province.  Two great competing lines of railroad will give easy access to all parts  of the Similkameen district. The vast  wealth of power that can be generated  from the numerous big- streams,' the  great area of coal and timber in proximity to the seaboard are such mighty,  factors in the economy of things as'ttT  be beyond computation. Everything  points lo rapid ilevelopment of all these  resources, espe ialty the mineral, all  of which invites thousands ot people  and millions of money to this section.  Joh:*- F.  LttLAND.   .

Kearney, editor of the Independent, Lowry City, Mo. That is  just what every family should do.  When kept at hand ready for instant  use, a cold may be checked at the outset and <*ured in much less time than  after it iris bscome settled in the system. This remedy is also without a  peer for croup iu children, and will  prevent the attack when given as soon  as the child becomes hoarse, or even  after the croupy cough appears, which  can only be done wnen the remedy is  kept at hand. For sale by all druggists  State dispensary will be replaced eith ���  er by local dispensary or by entire  prohibiton in each county, according  as the people prefer by vote of the  electors. . The bill enacting this  change will, if it is approved by the  Governor, introduce other changes  that seem to be improvements. One  is that the salaries of the officials in  charge of county chspansaries will not  depend on sales, Another is that one-  third of fhe profits on traffic goes into  the public school fund, one-third to the  .county for general purposes and one-  third to the town or city in which the  dispensary is   located.  There has never been found among  the mysterious mound builders of the  western continent., any utensil that  could be regarded as a lamp. The  North American Indians who were  found inhabitiner the country on the  arrival of the Europeans possessed no  lamp. The pine torch was their only  illuminating-. The one lamp that can  claim the distinction of being realiy  American was the stone lamp of the  Eskimo. When or where in the world  the first lamps were made has as yet  not been determined. Stone lamps  and terra cotta lamps of crude design  were in use thousands of years ag o.  The lamp of today is a product, of' the  19th century.  4��  ������  WHEN ARE YOU  COMING IN ?  ^  ^  J  NATIONAL CAFE  -nwnBu-to-m-iBi  GREENWOOD, B, C  OPEN DAY AND NIGHT  ajtaKHWUMRr*K/�� UMinn  First Class in Every Respect,   Popular  Prices.

Until Friday morning no word;  had been received as to the final settlement.  Letters received in Greenwood from  the Alberta Railway and Irrigation  Co., Lethbridge, state that on account  of the strike among the coal miners  they are unable to supply coal to the  dealers here. This will probably cause  a shortage of fuel.  It is reported from Victoria that the  West Kootenay Power and Lig*ht company? has offered to purchase the Cascade p-ant at 5200,000. It is understood that S. S. Fowler has refused,  placing the value of his plant' and  good will at ��680,000.
