OUR  SPECIALTY IS WATCH REPAIRING.  0��RW��RKIS GUARANTEED  Copper Street  Greenwood  COPPER STREET  St:  GREENWOOD  After a week spent in the district, visiting the company's properties, under the guidance of Mr.  J. E. McAllister and Mr. Frederick Keffer, the officials of the  13. C. Copper company from New  York, returned east on Monday  last.  They spent a strenuous week  in camp, making a most careful  examination of the .company's  holdings aud of its modern smelting plant. From early morning  until late at night they ,put in  seven busy days, only laying off  long enough Saturday afternoon  to make a friendly visit to the  Dominion Copper company's mines  at Phoenix.  According to representations  made by Mr. Hoyt. the president,  Ihe visitors saw much more than  they had expected. At }he Mother  Lode they found a mine such'as  they had not dreamed of, and one  which took two severe days to  make anything:like an inspection  thereof, Their other mines',' notably those at Summit camp, and  the Lone Star, were a great surprise as well.  ' The knowledge of the mines  thus gained will supplement the  standing of the president in financial circles east to the doubtless  benefit of the company.  The president was delighted  with the new smelting plant here  and its management, ��� and was  altogether optimistic over the  situation.  There was one discordant note  only in the president's words in  our short interview, and that was  the high price of labor and of  the apparent insecurity of labor  contracts. But we do not choose  to take the gentleman too seriously on the matter of high  wages, for with the price of their  product ruling high? the: danger-  ,ous work of mining, is entitled  pay living wages. The accidents  at the local smelters last Saturday may have served to impress  the president- of the dangers attached to working in his industries.  ' The complaint that the stockholders had not yet received; any  ,diyidends__was. not^a^valid=one,  although true in a sense. During these years the company has  chosen to acquire new properties  and to so improve them that the  stock today commands a high  premium, and that in in'self is'"a  dividend.  Much the same would be the  complaint of a farmer who, instead of banking his money,  would investit in new lands.  lie takes  up a quarter  section  say,   and   from  its proceeds iu a  year   or   two    acquires   another  quarter.     From  the proceeds of  the half section in a few years he  acquires another half, and so on  until   the   end of   eight or  ten  years he has  mail}- hundreds of  acres of land, but no reiuty money.  Who would  take his complaint  seriously if he said fanning didn't  pay because, forsooth, he was not  laying up money.    He was doing,  instead,   what   he   believed   the  wiser course, securing more lands  and bringing  all to a high  state  of cultivation.   Just so, the B. C.  Copper company  may not  have  been paying dividends  in   these  years, but it has been  multiplying values by acquisition and development.  The visitors were delig-hted  with the country and the climate.  Had they had the time to meet  the people^ we doubt not they  would have'thought well of them  too.,  We feel sure that  nothing  but  good can   come  to  the  company  Ralph Smailes.of Seattle was in town  the first of the week hopeful as ever of  the ultimate issue of the Midway and  Vernon, but not in position to make  any disclosures at present. The old  Midway-Vernon guard has become  considerably scattered. ; Christopher  Wood iu Armstrong-, Robert Wood in  Beaverdell, Jas. Kerr in Idaho, Duncan  Mcintosh in Manitoba, Mr. Pope in  Africa and Mr. Smailes in Seattle.  The only elements in the concern  that remain stationary are the grade  between Midway and Rock Creek and  the beautiful West Fork country,  whose people kept waiting- all these  years, make a rather pathetic picture.  A CHAPTER OF ACCIDENTS  No. 40.  PAY ORE COLUMN  About IS men are working on the  Cariboo and the property is looking  very promising. ���  Portniann and Zurfiiish have built a  nice cabin on the Johannesburg and  have four men at work.  DEATH.IN A COAL  MINE  The Skylark and Providence, alone  of the high grades, are using steam.  The rest have installed electric plants.  The Gold Drop is getting ready for a  250-ton daily output.  The wagon road from the Lone Star;  has been put in shape and  shipments   >n% when  will be resumed.  The seven-drill  electric compressor  f-jr the Crescent is overdue.  Saturday afternoon recorded two accidents. The ambulance had barely  returned from conveying an injured  employee of the Dominion Copper  company to theSisters' Hospital when  it was summoned to the B. C. .Company's smelter.  At the Boundary Falls plant a workman by tne name of,Clark, stepping  off the charge car on the wrong side,  got jammed between the car and the  Hue He wedged in so tightly that the  car was lifted from the track. Several  ribs were crushed in and the hip bone  broken. ,  At the B. C. Smelter, a car ot ore  was dumped on-va' workman's leg,  severely bruising the same, but breaking no bones.  On Su in lay an Italian laborer at the  B.C company's smelter got his head  quite seriously hurt, and on Monday a  workman in the shops at the Mother  Lode, Marshall by name, sustained an  injury to his hand.  Another car of S125 ore is being  hauled at present from the Duncan at  Beaverdell, to the Canadian Pacific at  Midway. .  Al-:x Robinson has received word to  continue work on theGolconda, both in  the tunnel and from above.  Stnathcona, Alta., June 10.���Six  men are dead as the result of a fire  Saturday night over the mouth of the  Ross & Walters coal mine, west of this  city. The fire began in the engine  room among some waste, at about 11  o'clock.  Thedead: George Eamb, Newcastle-  on-Tyne; G. F. Tettley, Barrow-in-  Furness, Lancostine; T. E. Tepot,  Bretany, France; W. McLellan, Durham, England; Percy Harrington, Essex, England; Joseph Hardy, Newcas-  tle-on-Tyne.  The financial loss is S10,000, with no  insurance.  Five men were in the mine titnber-  the fire began; and George  Lamb, night foreman, went down to  warn them. The (lames spread with  great rapidity, and the' elevator over  the main shaft was soon ablaze- Lamb,  with his retreat cut off, endeavored to  climb the air shaft. He was successful,  but was horribly burned, and died yesterday afternoon. None of the men  got above ground.���Tlfe Province.  CITY PARK"NEEDED  Before it Is Too Late to Secure the Same  THE TIME IS OPPORTUNE  For the Acauisition of Lands on the  Flat that Could Be Made Into  a Beauty Spot.  SECESSION AND ITS ANTIDOTE  The Dominion CopperCo. has retired  S2C0,000 for its outstanding bonds out  of earnings. The estimated net earnings of the company is placed at S100,-  000 a mouth, now that the capacity has  been raised to 1,500 tons daily.  BLOWN IN  The Dominion Copper company blew  in its third furnace Monday last.   This  furnace is the largest in   the  province  and doubles the capacity of the plant  The local smelters  are 'row reducing  nearly 3000 tons per day,' and this will  be materially increased in a short time  by the putting  in  commission  of the  B. C. Company's third 600 ton furnace.  The smelters in   the Boundary now  have   a   daily   capacity  of  over 6000  when   all  are running  and. although  considerable  time   was    lost    by   the  Granby and Dominion during the coal  strike the year's output is bound to be  be an increase on last year.  The Boston News is authority for the  statement that M. M. Johnson, chief  engineer of the Dominion Copper Co.,  has been instructed by the board of  directors to prepare plans for au additional .1,500 ton a day capacity for the  local plant.  TALKED TOO MUCH  George Agnew of Rossland, thinks  that Rev. J. P. D. Knox talked too  much 'nnd, too libellously about him,  and has instituted a suit in the supreme  court against the; reverend gentleman  for sl-mder.  Mr. Agnew is a prominent member  of the Methodist church, and" until recently superintendent of the Sabbath  school. His pastor thinks that this  particular member of his church should  .not sell tobacco-lo minors -and others,  and do things which he claims to have  discovered the brother was doing.  WHY NOT?  All Ontario is divided into three  parts���Old Ontario, New Ontario and  the Rainy River and Thuneer Bay  country. * The dwellers in the Trans-  Superior region are in a stp.te of revolt,  and for several months have been holding meetings at which it has been seriously proposed that a new province  shall be carved out of the Rainy River  and Thunder Bay districts. It is a far  cry from tjie valley of the Rainy River  to Toronto, over 700 miles as the crow  fle3, and the members of the government in the Queen's park are only now  beginning to wonder'what all the noise  is about.���The Globe.  NATIONAL  IDEAS  HELP YOURSELF  We are interested enough in the  Boundary to be delighted to see anything that appears in the Times quot-:  ed by the coast papers, whether we are  credited with the same or not./. But at  the same time we do not like to see  the responsibility for the sanie shifted  to any other source.  In -our issue of May 31st, we had an  article comparing the Boundary and  Coeur d'Alene outputs for the first  seven years of their mining history.  The Vancouver World of June 7th  quotes the article in full but charges it  | up  to  Phoenix^c^n^p^dence..^Who.  "sinned ?    The World's correspondent  or the World's editorial staff.  At the meeting of the Montreal conference of the Methodist churches at  Gananoque recently, the stationing  committee recommended that the congregation in Megantic be united undei  the Presbyterian rule and those in  East Angus be united under Methodist  rule. The recommendation was adopted.  Why should not these two churches  draw.up a general agreement providing  for such union in all places in Canada  where small congregations think it  advisable? It would be a first step in  church union and it would enable many  self-sacrificing ministers to secure  larger, congregations and more adequate salaries. It would not be forced  union, but would only occur where both  congregations felt that something  would  be gained.���Canadian Courier.  HIGH SCHOOL EXAMINATIONS  JUST BURST  The Dominion Copper Co., should  take lessons from Harriman in the  manipulation of water. We do not  know that the company has tried to  handle it iu their stocks, but we understand that they made a flat failure in  their uew big water tank at Boundary  Falls. The water inside decided to  get out and to do so burst asunder the  big tank last Sunday and scattered  the timber around promiscuously.  ^^ E x a m i n a t i blTsT"f or~~en" t"ratice~ "to" 1 He  high school, for the district, will take  place next Monday, There are 21  candidates in all, 3 from Phoenix, 4  from Boundary Falls, 7 from Midway,  7 from Greenwood.  The examinations will be conducted  by Inspector J. D. Gillis, and will en.  gage about three days.  Hon. Frank Oliver, minister of the  interior, and therefore in. charge of all  immigration matters, has been talking  to the Canadian club of Edmonton, on  the treatment to be accorded to new  citizens. ' The immigrants from the  United States, Great: Britain and  Europe are welcome, but they must accept Canadian ideals and Canadian  ambitions. The Canadian clubs of the  country should take in the newcomers  and make enthusiastic citizens ofjthem.  These new citizens must- be impressed  with the fact that we do not want them  here to help build itp;>an.<.annex to the  United States nor a duplicate of the  conditions in Europe.  Hon. Mr. Oliver spoke frankly  and  freely, and  bacause  these  sentiments  are expressed by him they are particularly worthy of note.    Mr.   Oliver is a  thorough believer in the possibility of  building up on this  part  of the continent a civilization and a nation which  will be superior in many  ways  to any  others in the world. Hevholds the torch  high, and it is well that we  have leaders able and far-sighted  enough to  do  what he  seems  to  have  done  well on  this occasion.    A united Canada is not  sufficient; it must be  an  ideal Canada  as well.    If Canada's  national ideals,  morals arid, instituiions  are   not better  than those elsewhere, then she will not  have lived up to her opportunities. She  is the newest nation, and  she has the  experience of added centuries to guide  her as to   what   is. to  be desired, and  what to be avoided.    To do as  well as  Great Britain or as well as the  United  States is not  sufficient.    She jias/op-  poftu"nitiel^vti IchHih^e^oirntxies never  had. She has been born in a day when  order, equality and liberty have new  meanings. If her people realize these  advantages and press forward along  the right line, the world will freely and  gladly say, "Well done!"���Canadian  Courier.  THE SLAG PILE  FACTS AND FIGURES  fly a majority of 209, tho citizens of  Calgary passed a bv-law authorizing  the expenditure of S3I0.O00 for a  gravity water-level system. The voting was keen u,p to the last minute.  British Columbia's manufactured  products increased from 319,000,000 in  1901 to ?38,000,000 in 1900. While Canada as a whole made a gain of 50 per  cent, British Columbia made a gain of  100 per cent.  Smelters frequently decline to purchase the copper ore which contains  either bismuth, antimony, arsenic,  lead or zinc, because" the presence of  these alloys in copper lowers its conductivity. There are, howezer, smelters well enugh equipped to handle im  pure copper ores.  The carrying capacity of a 16 inch  diameter pipe, with a fall of 1 foot in  loo feet is 2,303 gallons of water per  minute.  OUTPUT OF  BOUNDARY ORES  On June 29th the Granby pays another dividend of S4O5,()0O which will  make a total of ��2,563,030 paid since  December, 1903.  Canaada's 22,000 miles of railway in  Canada in 1906 carried 28,000,000 passengers, 58,oi)0,()00 tons of freight, and  earned 8125,000,000.  CARD OF THANKS  ,The Pope brothers desire to extend  thanks to the many friends of their  late mother, for the kindness and attention shown in a trying hour.  The most explosive dust in mines is  that produced by coal arid shale, or  bind, the coal being that crumbling  from the sides of the roadways when  made in coal, or that shaken or blown  from trams, shale or bind falling from  roofs or sides, and becoming gradually  reduced to a tine mechanical mixture.  This, as it is stirred up, is carried with  the air, and deposited on sides and  roof. It is this fine dust tint is liable  to ignition.  Wages are rather low in Honduras,  where one American gold mining company is earning dividends of S!5,Olio  per month, and has already paid 52,-  487,500, or 165.8 per cent on its capitalization of SI,500,000. Miners earn 1  peso (about SOoents) perday;shovek*rs,  50 to 75 centavos (25 to 37;* cents): mechanics, 1.50 to 3 pesos (75 cents to  31.50); firemen, 1.50 pesos (75 cents);  blacksmiths, 1.50 to 3 pesos (75 cents to  SI.SO); titnbermen and carpenters, 2 to  2.50 pesos (51 to SI. 25).  For making brick it is not necessary  that clay be so pure.  The i.iiw gkadi* mines of the Boundary, which first began shipment in  1900, sending out 100,000 tons that  year, have been steadily increasing.  The 1906 shipments were 1,161,537 tons,  and tliat of 1907 will be a large gain  t hereon. _,  The men <*.kai>ks, up to the end of  1906, had in the past four years shipped  out over 10,000 tons with a value of  over 51,000,000.

Tons  in 1907  26,570  61,627  90,713  201,432  When Greeuwood   was laid out  the ambition was to secure all the  town   lots possible.    Down   river  and up-river for a distance of over  a  mile  the  little square  stakes  were set, and  set 11 ui versa lly far  too close  tog-ether.    Twenty-five  feet between, they  ranged across  the flat, looking- in  the  days before the trees grew up again like  the   teeth   of a monstrous comb.  To each narrow strip  of ground  a large price  was  attached, and  as a result hundreds of them are  still   held   by  the townsite company  and   the Gauadian Pacific,  and of little present value. Scores  of -other lots lie here  and   there,  held by individuals, and  for sale  todav  at   a small percentage of  cost.  But with all this breadth of  land to stake out, and hold and  pay taxes on, no thought was  taken"' for a city park or recreation ground. Upon much of this  land a beautiful second growth  growth appears, and it would not  be an expensive undertaking today to lay the foundations fora  beautiful city park.  Greenwood is not always to'be  a town of its present proportions. -  It may not become a great city,  ���but.lit must inevitably grow into  A good,-.substantial one. It has  the conditions for such. Man  may materially assist*'these conditions and hurry its day.  ? We would suggest that one of  the wisest steps the city council  could make today would be to secure a city park and recreation  ground close in while values are  low. Between Government and.  Copper streets "are some beautiful  blocks entirely vacant.  We believe that the townsite  people, who are loaded with real  estate, would make a reasonable  donation to the city for such a  purpose, and we believe that the  Canadian Pacific would do likewise.  *��  If two adjoining blocks, close  in, were secured, the one for a  park and the other for a recreation ground, the value of adjacent holdings would appreciate  sufficiently-to these-large -holders  to offset their donation. The individual holdings here and there  in these two blocks could be  cheaply purchased now.  Of the advantages of parks  and recreation grounds arguments  are needless.  ? We beg to commend the scheme  to the city hall people, assured  that such a movement would meet  with public approval.  SET STAKES SUNDAY  Duncan    Prince  Henry...

Tupper  claims the honor for having been  the originator of the "all red''  route round the world. Surely  there must be merit in the scheme.  It is a common thing to hear  the ambitions of small towns derided, but a town with 2,000 people and a 20,000 club, is better  than a town of 20,000 people and  a 2,000 club.  Why should overworked train  crews be made responsible for accidents on a railway as a result  of such overwork? Are not the  employers the ones who ought to  be punished?  C. C. Hapton has a bulldog  valued at $1,000. Some of the  papers are publishing pictures cf  the dog. We wonder what value  the owner puts on the man that  takes care of the dog?  Wiiit.k we are not in favor of  too Puritanic a Sunday, we are  not iu favor of too continental a  one. Wc do not believe that people can be legislated into the  kingdom of heaven, but we do  believe that law can make conditions, favorable to a man's living  in accordance with the dictates of  his conscience. We think that  people may be safely allowed to  enjoy the Sabbath in rational  amusement, but at the same time  we feel that such should not needlessly offend those whose views  favor a strict observance; of the  Sabbath. These observations are  suggested by the somewhat boisterous passage through the town  last Sunday morning of some of  the'patrons of the ball game at  Midway. ,       ?  The Lewishons are planning to invest many millions in British Columbia and Alaska.  A. A. Wheeler is convinced that this  summer's developments in Kootenay's  oldest camp, Ainsworth, will be even  better than Inst year's, and that the  wealth even now in sight warrants a  belief in the permanent prosperity of  the camp.    The Guggenheims have by no means  abandoned their active operations in  the Cariboo country. Some little time  ago it was reported that this company  had practically abandoned all operations in that section, owing to their  dissatisfaction with the mining laws  and other troubles, From recent re  ports, however, it appears that the  company, so far from having quit, are  preparing to carry out their extensive  planson a scale even larger than be  fore.  The Oregon eight hour mining law  became'effective last week. It prescribes, among other things, that "all  miners working in any mine in the  state at or over a depth of 150 feet, or  over 200 feet in a tunnel, is entitled to  ah eight hour day," and that "failure  on the part of the mine owner, manager or superintendent to comply with  this law constitutes a misdemeanor,  punishable with a line of not less than  $50 nor more than S300, or by imprisonment of not less than 30 days not-  more than three months, and the courts  shall have discretion to impose both  fine and imprisonment."

Now,   while land, is  cheap,  the  ciry might very properly take the  matter up. It is due to our young  men to  give  them  a recreation  ground, close in, so that so much  of the  time they   may  have  to  spend in pastime be not  wasted  in walking .back and   forth to the  present park.   Moreover, a tenure  under rent is  not desirable,   and  the ball club  and  others should  not be called on  to  solicit   funds  that have to be paid out  in rent.  W'e have public  spirit sufficient,  surely, to justify this step, and if  some of the  present  waste  land  on  the   flat   can  be   made   into  healthful   resorts,   it   were   certainly wise to do so.

C.  At first, it seems as if Sir Wilfrid  must have had a happy month in England, but when one considers the following narrative, as related in an English magazine, there remains only  compassion:  "I had the pleasure of accompanying  three of the premiers the other day to  Edinburg. We left at 10 o'clock in the  morning from King's Cross. At precisely 10:30 there came along refreshments in the shape of pineapples,  peaches and grapes; at 10:45 champagne and cigars made their appearance;���at_ll" "o'clock -further���tangible  evidence of British hospitality in the  form of chicken sandwiches, cakes and  more champagne: and a light collation  of plums and plover's eggs and champagne, this time a different brand,  occurred a quarter.of an hour later.  At 12:30 luncheon was heralded by  olives, anchovies,vermouth and sherry;  and a still further and stronger portent  of events in that direction happened at  1 o'clock, when the waiters brought  round hors d'oeuvres of sardines and  caviare with cocktails a l'Americaine.  Luncheon lasted from 1:30 to 3:45, and  after a slight interval of seven or  eight minutes., preliminary tea was  served, a substantial meal not making  its advent until 4:30. None of the  premiers appeared daunted. If these  were British traditions, not a statesman from overseas shrank from upholding them. At last a slight, tin -  pretentious observation escaped the  lips of the New Zealand premier. He  wanted to say that he was full of admiration of th; hospitality of the  mother country. But he got no farther  than 'I am full,' and tho waiters came  along with champagne. Then the  premier of Natal pathetically remarked: 'Waiter, it's very short time  between meals."  Now, if our own Richard could have  left the "foot of the throne" long  enough to have takon that trip in, it  might have relieved life's tedium.
