The city council held a lengthy meeting on Monday night and threshed out  considerable business. Among other  matters discussed were the free library,  the appointment of a fire chief, the  resignation of the citv driver, the:extension of ��� the water'system to supply  several applicants, the extinguishing  of. an incipient blaze back of'Copper  street, and last, but by no means least,  the appointment of an acting mayor to  .take the place of Mayor Naden. who  will be absent for some three month's  while he explores the unknown regions  of the far north.  The appointment of a fire chief  was first brought to the attention of the council by a delegation from the brigade which stated  through their spokesman, J. R. Saunders, that the brigade had decided that  none of'its members would accept the  position of chief for less than an annual remuneration of ?300. Among  those present was A. D. Hallett, who  reiterated the statements of Mr.  Saunders, and added his assurance  that if reappointed to the position he-  would do hi��-best to keep the brigade  in an efficient and creditable condition  The firemen then retired.  EIES  BB*",r, TOIASi   '.-  Later on in the evening, when the  question came up for. further discussion, it was suggested that the boys be  given an . opportunity to demonstrate  their abilities, and one of the city  fathers forthwith started out to hold  counsel with the fire god. Meanwhile  the discussions in the council chamber  went on with due deliberation until  the startling peals of the fire alarm  rudely interrupted their eloquent  speeches. Then there was a rush for  the street, and everyone asked where  was the fire. The bri- ade responded  with commendable speed and in a remarkably short time the hose wagon  -������vas-on-its-way-"to���the^vicih'ity^fllie  blaze. The firemen, however, were  misinformed of the location of the fire  -ind went to Hunter-Kendrick's. while  the conflagration was at the rear of  Holmes & Kennedy's. The brigade  fully demonstrated their ability to  quickly get to a lire after the alarm  j was   turned   in, ..but   tlie   experiment  '���  proved the inefficiency ot the present  system of turning in an alarm, for  nearly five minutes elapsed between  the time central was called and the  ringing of the fire beli.  The appointment of a fire chief was  decided by reappointing A. D. Hal'ett  at a salary of $300 per annum and the  lire aud light committee were appoint-  eii to confer with tlie brigade regarding  regulnr fire drills.  ��i,ind man's buff.  The unfortunate blind men who walk  the streets, oftentimes at great danger,  came in for some consideration. Alderman Mathison, the energetic chair-  mail of the streets committee, had  noticed that the habit of leaving boxes,  barrels, chairs, benches aud various  other things standing on the sidewalks  was a source of danger to those who  had lost their eyesight, and had taken  it upon himself to notify some of the  business men that this should be discontinued. He recommended to the  other members of the council that  sidewalks be kept clear and the nuisance be discontinued. The council  concurred in this-view of the matter  and the worthy alderman was commended for his enterprise on behalf of  the long suffering public and was assured of the support of the council in  any steps he should take to have,the  street by-law enforced. . ,-.  WATER   WORKS.  The superintendent, of water works  gave estim ites for extending the system to supply Kenneth McKenzie, W?  B. Flemming, C H. Archibald aud  other.-;. These were satisfactory, but  as'they were not .provided for in the  estimates, it was felt that the work  should be delayed until the debentures,  recently issued, were disposed of. Tim  will probably be accomplished in a few  weeks at most. In the case of, Mr.  Flcniiug, however, it was thought ad-  ���visabic that the work be done as soon  as possible, as he is depending- on  Boundary creek for his supply, and  these waters are being- poluted by  sewerage from the. steam, laundry. It  was decided to ask Mr. Fleming to advance the money for his water, to: be  refunded after the sale of debentures.  The others will be reconsidered at the  next meeting. The application of Mr.  Skid mo re for one inch of water from  Lind creek was granted at an annual  fee of S5.  APPOINTMENTS.  Alderman McRae thought that all  stove pipes and chimneys in the business section shou'd be inspected, and if  found defective, ordered repaired as a  precautioniigainst fire.

Granted. His  worship, the mayor, asked for three  months' leave of absence, as he purposes leaving- early next1 week for  Bulkley Valley and other parts of the  unknown lands of the north. This  was graii'ed and Alderman Bunting  was appointed acting- mayor.  The: council then adjourned to meet  June 7th.  The fact that the B. C. Copper Co.  are shutting- down their blast furnaces  for some six weeks, has g-ivet rise to  some apprehension among- business  men that local trade would be seriously  curtailed and that the present prosperity of the city would suffer, ��� The  Times interviewed Mr, McAllister, the  manager of the company, and learned  that instead of the number of workmen being- decreased they would likely  be increased. Just as soon as the  furnaces have been closed down the  construction work will be rushed forward as rapidly as possible and every  man put to work that can be- secured.  "T'lere will be no reduction of the  pay roll," said Mr. McAllister, "and  instead of decreasing the number of  employees they will, if anything, be  increased The furnaces will be closed  down as soon as we can get cleaned  up? but the converter plant will be continued iu operation. We are handicapped slightly at present for lack of  heavy timbers, but we expect the new  furnaces to arrive about,. July.. 1st, and  .the"struct��ral steel'wiUbe here before  that. We will prosecute the work of  construction both day and nig-ht.  Some time ago we installed several  large, new style electric- arc lights  which throw a powerful light and  everyone visiting the works at night  will see the work of construction going  on the same as in day time."  "What about the Mother lode. Will  the staff there.be reduced?"  "No. Work- will be continued as  heretofore. Less ore will be taken out  but development work,will be pushed  much more vigorously."'V*e expect to  spend 5100,000-during the next three  months in development work alone,  besides taking out a considerable  quantity of ore. Instead of reducing  the number of men we want more.  We T-*ant^y^rip^eJijindred..menat-our���  Mother Lode mine, mostly machine  men."  Mr. McAllister assured the Times  that so far as the B. C. Copper Co. are  concerned.the business men of Greenwood have no reason to fear any re  ductiou in the amount of wages distributed monthly, and that their efforts  were being continually directed toward  increasing the m-mber of their employees. -.---���  DIED AT ROCK CREEK  Wm.

We can assure the Colonist that the liberals of Yale-Cariboo are not  ashamed of their representative.  He has done good work for his  constituency, and for a new member, has established a very enviable record. It is quite intelligi-  ble that admirers of Hon. George  Eulas Foster should be very much  annoyed with Duncan Ross, because of his presumption in taking that old parliamentary hand  to task? . Duncan. Ross certainly  did sail into Foster in good western style and we can well understand that neither the member  for North Toronto nor his faithful followers throughout the  countrv enjoyed the plain speaking of the young man from Yale-  Cariboo. But Mr. Foster has  been indulging in over-much  abuse of political opponents  lately .and it was just as well that  he should be called down, and  called down hard. If Duncan  Ross never offended more seriously than in administering occasional rebuke to "imick-rakers"  of the Foster stamp, he will lose  no friends in Yale-Cariboo,���  Nelson News.

There is an increased demand for mineral claims, and a large  number have recently been bonded.  The result of this demand has caused  claim owners to go to work on them,  not only for the purpose of doing the.  assessment work, but also for clevelon-  ment and to obtain crown grants.  Phoenix is lively, owing to the operations of the two large companies there.  Greenwood and Grand Forks are also  active. The success that has been  made by the Granby, the B. C. Copper  company and a number of smaller companies in the neighborhood of Greenwood has stimulated everybody, as the  possibilities of the : mines are now  thoroughly understood and there is a  general determination everywhere in  the section to operate the properties  that have long been dormant, and this  prosperous condition of affairs is making the Boundary country resemble the  Rossland district^ in 1896-7, when the  bbom-was-on..'J^=L^^_i^^a^=iJL^=i=_=^i=i=^=  G.T.

Vancouver, May 31.���The World  says: "That the Grand Trunk Pacific  is seriously joining in the great railway race to the Pacific is becoming  more and more evident every day. According to Mr. William Sloan, M. P.,  twelve survey parties are now in the  field west of the Rockies, making the  necessary explorations preliminary to  the location of the line.  "Mr. Sloan passed through Van  couver yesterday on his way back to  Ottawa after a flying visit to the coast.  Just what brought Mr. Sloan west iu  the middle of the session is not known,  and when asked he laughingly evaded  the inquiry. "  "Reticent as h * was, however, on his  particular mission, Mr. Sloan became  enthusiastic the moment the Grand  Trunk Pacific was mentioned? and  promptly vouchsafed the information  given above, adding that the work was  being rushed and hinting that developments might be looked for which  would put at rest all doubt as to the  intentions of the company in British  Columbia."

On the Constitution and Orphan Boy,'  owned by A. Lewis, there are two  shafts about 15 feet in depth and several open cuts on these claims. The  work has been done on a large outcrop  of iron. J. C. Dale is working- on the  Great Hopes in Carmi Camp. The  crosscut from the 100 foot level on the  Washington and Idaho has been run 80  feet, aud it is expected the lead.will be  struck in a few days. Four men are at  present working on the Sally and a car  of ore is on the road from the mine to  the railway at Midway. Captain Gordon of Greenwood, is doing assessment  work on his'claims in Arlington Camp,  eight miles above Carmi. Six men are  working on the Duncan and Bounty  Fraction. They have a good lead of  high grade galena. Thomas King and  Norman Morgan have run a 250 foot  tunnel on the Crown Point. There is  a very large outcrop of iron on the  property, about 90 feet in width. The  machinery for the Carmi is being  hauled by McDonald & Bub&r. It consists of a five-stamp mill and other  necessary machinery for the working  of the mine and the treatment of the  ore. This will give the Carmi ten  ���tamps altogether.

THE MERCHANTS CORNER  THE SLEEPING BAG  ��� In the Arctic regions it takes'some  time for a party to get into their sleeping bags. All but one wriggle down  into them, for one, says Captain Rob  ert N. Scott, in "The Voyage of Discovery," must attend to the fa&tenings  over the head, and then work himself  in as best he can. This takes time,  for the simplest operation 'becomes  complicated in intense cold weather.  Bat then conies 'he sleeping, and of  that heTspeaks in no alluring terms.  A night in such a sleeping bag as we  are picturing, with the temperature below forty degrees, cannot be said to be  less than horribly uncomfortable. We  = are rarely conscious of sleeoing-; certainly not oftener than one night in  three can we realize that several hours  ���have passed in oblivion, and ^hese  seem'only-to be bought at the price of  extreme exhaustion. Ordinarily we  ..sleep in the fitful, broken comfortless  'fashion of which the mere recollection  is a nightmare, and even this poor  apoJogy for slumber does not come until we have lain bioad awake aud shivering for an hour or two.  With-th~e~t^nTperatur"e~��t~f6~rty-eigh"t~  degrees, we  can   make a shrewd guess  as to the sort of a night that  is before  us.    The   first   half hour   is spent  in  constant shifting and   turnin;*-, ;<s ench  inmate  of the  bag  tries   t>> <nnke   ilie  best of his hard m;.*ttres��.  or   to draw  the equall}* hard coveting  closei about  him.

Business.  Try to make yours an errorless store.  Do everything possible to avoid making mistakes in footing bills, making  change and delivering goods.  Spot stocks of layer figs in first  hands are about exhausted. The new  crop is said to be progressing favorably  and promises to be abundant.  The trade in canned goods for the  month of April is said to have been the  largest in years and stocks are going  to be cleaned up closely.  Advertising brings the people into  your store and price sells them the  goods, tint you must give them quility  in order to bring them back again.  Importers of candied citron look for  a further advance in prices of 2@3e a  pound on late shipments ovt r those now  asked for August-September delivery.  In what way is your store managed  belter than it was a year ago? You do  not mean to say,.do you, that you have  been standing still for the past twelve  months?  If your store has dull seasons you  are short on the goods that are in demand through those seasons. Find  om \vh3t the people are buying at that  time and get it.  To make more money with the same  capital you must turn your money over  oftener. Goods must sell faster. You  will have to-look to advertising to do  the trick.  It is risky for a small trader retailing  goods*ou credit to undertake to follow  the policy of ihe chain store sytsem or  the department stores. They are the  wiggest sort of buyers for cash, do an  enormous cash trade, master details,  catch every discount and turn stock  quickly.  Give your store a distinctive name  and use that name in connection with  oyery bit of advertising you do,whether  it is in the newspapers, by circulars, on  signs or (ni the delivery wagon. Run  the store on the right basis and that  name will become synonymous with a  square deal. Then live up to your reputation.  It is to be feared that the oyster may  in lime become a high priced dainty,  instead of a general article of di *t.  Notwithstanding the fact that "he  oyster product has beeu increased  vastly by artificial breeding, the present price of the oyster is double that  which prevailed a generation ago, so  great is the demand.  Lake Superior copper mines produced practically* the same amount of  metal last month as in March, the  April output being approximately  18,700,006 pounds of refined copper. As  lake brands average 18.7 cents per  pound, it would indicate that the April  yield netted the Michigan producers  S3,4S7,O0p. Had it not been for the fire  in hnmebf the shafts of the Tamarack  mine the April production of the lake  district would have been nearly, if not  quite, the largest on record   manner so as to give everybody a fair  and equal chance, and the policy is  along the lines of the encouragement  in mining which the Ontario government has been moving in recent years  as indicated by the.purchase and ownership of the diamond drills for exploration, the investigation of electrical smelting and in other ways. Tlie  electrical smelting investigation was  carried on by the Canadian government  proper. It will be interesting to watch  the development of this new policy and  to measure up the results.  The most remarkable mountain of  iron in the world is in the state, of  Durango, Mexico, It is 4,800 feet long  by 1,100 fdet wide and 640 feet high.  Engineers estimate that it contains  between 500,000,000 and 600,000,000  tons of ore above the surface, and it is  known that the deposit extends, under  the ground for a radius of three or  four miles in all directions. The ore  is high grade, containing roughly 70  ���per cent iron and only about O.Oo par  cent phosphorus. People who dig wells  or sink shafts for any purpose in the  vicinity of Durango .strike iron, and  there is a theory that 75 to 100 feet below the surface is a solid stratum of  iron covering au area as big as a  county. There is enough iron in sight  to last the entire world fora century.  The hard water here can be made delightfully soft and refreshing by using  White Bros. Violet bath' powder���25c  box.  M  f  /  The Canadian government has inaugurated a new policy in disposing of  the mineral rights on a iarge tract of  land immediately south of the rich  Cobalt district by providing that the  j lands'will be retained by the government and mining operations carried on  by thi: authorities for the benefit of the  '.'overnment.

PERILOUS TRAVELING  Passengers for Port Essinerton Have  Exciting- Experiences-  Vancouver, May 31.���A dispatch from  the far north tells of the. dangers of  travel experienced by those going to  the Bulkley valley and other parts of  the far north. The Skeena river is in  full flood, and Kitsalas canyon is impassable. The water is so high and  running so swiftly, and so much is  coming down from the hills that  steainboa'. men fear that navigation  will be in possible till after the period  of high vater is passed, which will be  in about a month from now at ihe  earliest-  The sl'amers Mount Royal and  I heasant, which vrere on their way up  when the sudden rise in the river occurred, were forced to turn back, and  both may now be at Port Essington.  The Mount Royal, which, belongs to  the Hudson Bay company,was disabled  above the conyon, and for some time  she was in imminent danger, as her  anchors refused to hold. She had  breasted the high water in the canyon,  and was slowly working her way upstream under a full head of steam,when  one of her cylinder heads blew out, and  she drifted down with the current like  a duck v\ith a disabled wine Her  anchors were thrown out, and her pass  engers crowded her decks and anxiously  watched while she swung down the  river with her hooks dragging after  her. Finally, when the suspense was  greatest,'the anchors caught, and she  brought up to the current safely. . The  engine with the blown-out cylinder-  head was disconnecte:, and preparations made to run her down stream, as  there was no use trying to push her up  in her disabled condition.  The steamer Pheasant was coming  up the river behind the Mount Royal,  and word was sent to her below the  canyon telling her .that the Mount  Royal was on herjjvay down the river.'  The Pheasant waited at the lower end  of .the canyon till the.Mount Royal got  through. This was the next day after  the accident to the latter vessel, and by;  this time the water had risen so high  -in the canyon that it would have been  extremely-dangerous for the. Pheasant  to attempt to get 'through. She therefore abandoned the attempt to make  Hazelton, and both the Mount Royal  and' the Pheasant discharged their  cargoes at the foot of the canyon.  After discharging, the steamers  started down the river for Port Essington, the Pheasant to lie up till the  period of high water is past, and the  Mount Royal to make repairs. As soon  as she is ready to run again, it is likely  that the Mount Royal will proceed to  the Stikine river to carry freight from  Wrangel to Telegraph creek. If the  Mount Royal cannot make repairs  quickly enough the Hazelton may take  the Stikine run for a trip or two. About  ten dj ys ago the Hazelton damaged her  _stern wheel badly in the canyon, aud  her repairs have just beenTolnpletetlaf  Port Essington.  When the accident occurred to the  Mount Royal she was making her second trip to HazeLton, and the Pheasant  was making her third.  On board the Pheasant and Mount  Royal were passengers who left Vancouver on the last trip of the steamer  Camosun. They are all now at Port  Essington, and if the Skeena remains  impassable for any great length of time  they may come down the  coast   again.  have an afternoon's relaxation through  the week It means no loss of business  to any one firm, since all will be clossd,  and shoppers will time their business  to suit the circumstances.  A TWO MILE PLATFORM  "The new Victoria station, which  will be opened formally on June 1, will  be one of the finest and largest railway termini in London," says the  Daily Mail Over-Seas Edition.  "The platforms of the new Victoria  will extend to Elizabeth bridge, and  .-iltogether will measure more than two  miles, and there will be nine miles of  rail under the station roof which covers  an area of 400,000 square feet.  "CongeKtion of traffic owing to lack  ���of platform accommodation will be  prevented by an ingenious method devised by Mr.'C L. Morgan, the London, Brighton & South Coast company's chief engineer.  "Three lines of rails have been laid  between each platform between Ec.cles-  ton and Elizabeth bridges, so that  trains, after they have discharged  their passengers, are enabled to run  ahead and "allow another train to come  up to the platform.  The new bridge over the St. Lawrence, a few miles above Quebec, is  now approaching completion. The  maximum span of this tine bridge-is  5,800 feet, 200 feet longer than the  Brooklyn bridge, and 90 feet -longer  than the Forth bridge. Each cantilever  pier at the river shore is 310 feet high,  and supports a shore arm of S10 and a  river arm of 564 feet. An independent  middle truss of 675 feet rests at each  end on the river arms of the cantilevers.  The width is 90 feet, and two railtoad  tracks, two roadways, with tramways,  and two footpaths are provided on one  level.      ;   At Vermilion, 500 miles north of Edmonton, Superintendent C. Constan-  tine, Northwest Mounted police, reports the successful raising of 12,000  bushels of good wheat, besides oats  and barley. The Roman Catholic  mission grew enough wheal', to grind  about a hundred sacks of flour. The  settlement at Prairie River consists of  Canadians, Norwegians and Swedes,  ami the crop was an experiment.

Fred E.: Morris of Montreal, well  known as Canada's greatest pianist,  will visit Greenwood June 7, at the request of several of his personal friends  here and give a,piano recital in the  Auditorium: Mr.- Morris is a young  and clever pianist who has had to work  hard for the instruction and experi-  enceLhe has gained, and he is ambitious of becoming one of the master,  pianists of the world. He has studied  for som -. years under the' direction c f  Professor Herr Kouigsberg, the great  Montreal teacher, and is anxious now  to visit Germany and complete his  studies under the masters to be found  only there.  To secure sufficient funds to accomplish his desires, he is giving, at the  request of close, personal friends, piano  recitals in a few B. C towns. While  he was in Greenwood a few weeks ago  the question of holding oue here was  "disctis_sleir'l^=J?1"B^Mc^llister  Warran and others, with Mr. Morris,  but nothing was decided. However,  these .men have since completed all  arrangements, and under their patronage the recital will take place next  Thursday evening in the Auditorium,  in several interior towns where Mr.  Morris has given recitals he has scored  wonderful success, and on this occasion  Greenwood will have an opportunity of  hearing an artist who is equal to anything now in the Dominion and who in  a few years will doubtless take his  place among the artists of the world.  ,  A special instrument has been secured for the occasion and a tuner  brought from Spokane to put it in first-  class shape. The program will be  such as will delight all lovers of good  music, and will be' varied by vocal selections from some of the best singers  in the Boundary. Thuse in charge of  the evening's performanco have de  cided to close the doors after the program starts and will seat-no one during the rendering of a selection.  ftft��ftftftftftftftftftftft**'ftft��ftftft������ft��ftft^  TAILOR MADE SUITS  ?'-;:' ^Tlf^lll.';-'^;' tO  Ladies' and Gents' Clothing Dyed, Cleaned Pressed and  Repaired.

A sad accident occurred at the Sunset  mine last Sunday morning, May 27th,  when Alphonso G. Inglis, aged twenty-  four years and eight months, met instant death from an explosion. The  unfortunate .young man was a native  of Nova Scotia and was one of the  most highly respected workingtnen in  the ^Grecn wood camp. He was of a  quiet disposition, energetic and capable in his work and he enjoyed the esteem of all those who were fortunate  enough to enjoy his acquaintance.  The accident which terminated a  promising- and useful career was an explosion of dynamite which blew out the  hole without blasting the rock.' Otherwise, the results would have been much  more serious and several men would  probably have been killed.  The body was brought to Greenwood  Sunday and an inquest held Monday  morning,  The evidence produced at the inquest  went to show that in the operations of  blasting a hole heavily charged with  dynamite had missed fire and the explosion resulted froth the efforts of the  men to make it go off; After the shot  failed to explode part of the tamping  was removed and a stick of powder  put in. This was fired by a fuse, but  did not cause the shot to explode. After  waiting a reasonable length of time  the fortunate man, with, other workmen, returned to the cut where deceased put an auger into the hole to  ascertain if the. tamping; had been  moved by the powder explosion. While  thus engaged.and while bending over  the hole the explosion occurred, killing  him instantly and -throwing the other  workmen to the ground.������:' The jury,  after considering the evidence, returned a verdict of accidental death.  Two brothers of ith'e deceased, F. and  S. Inglis, were working in the mine at  the time, and are naturally much distressed over the occurrence, and the  -sympathy of the, community; goes out  to .them and their aged parents.  -���: The funeral services were held in the  Presbyterian church JVednesday. . at  1:30.? The church was filled to its capacity with friends of"the deceased  and members of the Knights 'of  Pythias and Miners' union, to which  he belonged. Rev. M. D. IVlcKee, assisted by ?ReY. H. S. Hastings, conducted the services. Mrs. Sidney  Oliver sang "Star of the East," a  pretty selection, and a favorite with  deceased. The Knights of Pythias  closed the service, led by Proctor  Joiner. After the service closed the  remains were escorted to the' depot by  the mettbers of the order and the  Miners' union. The pall bearers were  A. Morrison, J?Cameron, D. McGillis,  Neil Morrison, George Terhuna and  W. Hamilton.  The two brothers, Stewart and For-  lie, accompanied the remains east.  ^The���acme^of���- perfection,--^-Webb?s  chocolates.
