The quantity of  ore exposed on three of the properties,  the permanence and continuity of the  leads, coupled with the smelter returns  all combine to demonstrate that the.  Boundary is about to add another producer to its growing list of high grade  propositions.  The Republic  group comprises  the  Last Chance, Republic,None Such and  Hidden treasure mineral claims situate  in Smith's camp, one mile west of the  Montreal*& Boston Copper Co.'s smelter at Boundary Falls.   It is owned by  the   Republic   Gold   Mines,   Ltd,,   of  which   W- T.  Smith, a pioneer of the  district, is the general manager.     Mr.  Smith; has   just received  the  smelter  returns of a recent carload shipment of  20'tons of ore from  the Last Chance  claim.   The   ore   was   treated   at the  Hall Mines smelter; Nelson, B.C.'The"  carload according to the official  certificate averaged 18% per cent,   lead,  $3  gold, and 22 ozs; silver,  equivalent  to  $23.40   per    ton    including'   the    lead  bounty.    Returns from the second carload shipment from   the same.claim  have not   yet   been   received   but  are  expected  daily;   however the   average  check samples ran  about the   same as  the   prior   shipment,   'indicating';.uniformity in values.     The  Last Chance  lead varies from  eight to  ten  feet in  width   and   runs  northeast and southwest, being traceable  on   the  surface  for hundreds of feet?   The gangue  is  quartz, the richest ore being from one  foot-lo_eighteen_. inches___ _wide __on__the  hanging wall side; and  the ore on the  foot wall varies from two to  two and  one half feet in the thickness, but is of  lower grade.     The contents of the entire vein vvill concentrate  at the ratio  of five to one.    The formation is ideal,  the vein  occuririg   in   the  slate with  greenstone  or diorite  on the hanging  wall, and slate on the foot wall.  '   The None Such  claim  also  made  a  similar carload shipment, which  averaged $10 gold aud 2 ozs. silver per ton.  The vein occurs in the same formation  and averages from three to five feet in  width.    It is the  same  lead as the one  'on   tin:  Last Chance,   the.   adjoining  claim.  .The carload shipment from the Republic claim proved even higher, the  ore averaging ��17 gold and 7^ ozs.  silvrr per ton. The vein runs at right  angles tf) the other lead and is from  12 to 18 inches in width. It occurs in  identical formation.  A good wagon road extends fiom  Boundary Falls to this group of mines?  affording an inexpensive down hill  haul. The C.P.R. traverses the Hidden Treasure, one of the properties of  the Republic group. With three shipping propositions the outlook for the  company is indeed exceedingly bright.  Chamberlain's   Cough    Remedy  the  Best   Made.  "In my opinion Chamberlain's Cough  Remedy is the best made for colds,"  says Mrs. Cora Walker, of Porterville,  California There is no doubt about its  being-the best. No other will cure a  cold so quickly. No other is so sure a  preventative of pneumonia. No other  is so pleasant and safe to take. These  are good reasons win- it should be preferred to any other. The fact is that  few peopl��' are satisfied with any other  aftT having once used this remedy.  For sale by all druggists.  POLICE REPORT.  In submitting his annual report for  1904 to the city council, A. D. Hallett,  chief of police, made the following interesting comments: "I think you will  agree with.me that the past year was  one of good order in this city. Crime  was almost unknown, and any case  that was brought to our notice, ��� we'did  our utmost to have it settled in a satis-  factory manner."  Cases tried in the police court were  as follows: Drunk and orderly, 1;  keeping disorderly house, 1; failure to  take out traders licence, 1; soliciting  without a, licence, 1; frequenting house  of ill fame, 1; selling prairie chickens,  1; keeping vicious dog, 1; assault and  battery, 1; in possession of stolen'property, 1; theft, 2; vagrancy, 5; allowing  cattle to run at large, 2; keeping houses  of ill fame, 74; inmates , of house of ill  fame, 681  ���- A-G90D SHOWING.    -  City Water \Vorks. Earned a Profit  of.$2350 Last Year.  The annual report of Sydney M.  Johnson,1 city engineer, recently ;sub-  mitted to the city council is a model of  clearness. It shows that the expenditure last year was $2011 89, an outlay  lower than, any year since incorporation With one exception. Of the tota!  expenditure for the year over one third  was caused by the freshet and Twin  creek,.being attributed more especially  to the failure of the Greenwood street  flume to carry .off the water. This  flume was improved and extended during the year.  " 'The-items" of "expenditure "were- in-  round numbers as follows: ��� Greenwood street flume, $359; repairs due to  Twin creek flood, $314; repairs to Dead-  wood road, $108; supplies, tools and  their repairs, $80; Boundary creek  above Louisa street, $42; Deadwood  street stairway, $38; crossing and sidewalk repairs, $220; grading Skylaik  street, $35; stumping Kimberly a no  Campbell streets, $18; gravelling Gold  and Garland streets, $100; Marguerite  street sidewalk, $23; repairs to bridges,  $40; engineer, $212; street cleaning and  general repairs, $137; city' team, $276.  Of this total, all was.cliarged lo maintenance with the exception of $41  charged to"capital account.  No extensions were made to the distribution system during the year but  the benefits of the mains laid two  years ago were more fully appreciated  by property holders living near by as  evidenced from the fact that of the 19  new services installed, 17 were in connection with these extensions. Mr  Johnson notes as a further evidence of  the wisdom of making these enlargements that the revenue from the  Church and Kimberly main is now  without considering Are protection, 23  per cent, of its cost, whilst the Government street extension made that year,  earns 33 per cent, of its cost.  During the year 19 connections were  made with the mains at a cost of  $246.20. and against this amount fees  amounting to $152 were collected, so  that the average cost to the city of installing new services was $2.82. The  receipts from water works were  S3177 and costs of management $493  leaving a net profit of $2350. The profits in the preceding year were only  $778. There are at present 31 services  out of commission. With the exception of the tank the whole system is in  good condition.  Unanimity of public sentiment crystallized Monday when the Mayor and  members of the city council were elected by acclamation. George R. Naden  succeeded himself in-the civic chair.  The personnel of the city council is  unchanged with two exceptions, the  two new members being Duncan Mcintosh and Ralph Smailes: who replace  K. McKenzie in the north ward and  Duncan Ross? M. P. in the south ward,  respectively? Four nominations were  made in' the latter ward, but the withdrawal of T. M. Gulley rendered an  election unnecessary.  G.

A DESERVED PROMOTION  James Petrie Appointed Waster Mechanic at the Le Roi. .  The numerous friends of James Petrie of this city will be pleaded to learn  of his appointment to the position of  master mechanic at the Le Roi mine,  Rossland. Mr, Petrie and family left  for their new home on Tuesday. Those  who are familiar with Mir. Petrie's  acknowledged ability will realize that'  he will give a good account of himself.  The offer reached him a few days ago  from Tames Trevarrow, the general  superintendent of the Le Roi.  Mr. Petrie has enjoyed the advantage of a splendid training in the  United States and Canada. He was  employed for ten years looking after  the stationary plants at the coal mines  of both the Santa Fe and Union Pacific railways. His first mechanical  work in Canada was the installation of the Grand Forks water and  electric light systems. He also installed ard ran the plant at the Bonanza mine on the north fort of Kettle  river, directing the development work  as well. Mr. Petrie was also an engineer at the Granby mines for nearly  five yeats before performing the duties  of master mechanic at the Mother Lode  mine for eleven months. Recently Mr.  Petrie was the engineer in charge at  the Eugene mine, Moyie, B.C., resigning to install the new compressor plant  at the Betts & Hesperus mineon Hardy  mountain, near Grand Forks. The  continued advancement of Mr. Petrie  in his chosen profession is striking  '��� proof of his capacity and intelligence.  i" BOUND Any    CREEK   TIMES.  PROFESSIONAL CARDS.  /.   H.

In his hopes, plans and aspirations, man seems likewise to vary  and modify with the seasonal  changes. It is therefore anomalous and significant that mining  in the Greenwood high grade  belt, instead of slackening for  the long winter months, has  shown a cumulative and expansive tendency. More properties are  now being developed than at any  previous period in the history of  the camp. Each fortnight during the past few months has seen  work started on new propositions  with a corresponding enlargement of the local payroll. And  now with midwinter approaching the mining industry continues  to grow by leaps and bounds.  Twelve high grade propositions,  most of them either dividend-  payers or on a self-sustaining  basis, are now being, operated,  giving employmentito nearly one  hundred and fifty miners. The  outloolc for the future is still  brighter.The development of the  Coro-Canadian group, two miles  east of town, was undertaken  this week, Grand Forks people  again showing- their faith in the  possibilities of mining around  Greenwood. The next four weeks  will also witness the starting of  work on the Gold Bug, Goldfinch  and Meadowlark, equally famed  locally as high grade and promising propositions. Faith in  the camp has been amply justified by the phenomenal results  accomplished in so short a period  by the Providence, Elkhorn, E.  P. U. and Skylark. Not a failure has occured where the development work has been directed  with intelligence. The friendly  rivalry of Phoenix and Grand  Forks in "attempting to acquire  meritorious properties should  stimulate the people of Greenwood to secure their share of the  bonanzas that lie at their doors;  and if they fail to do so the responsibility can easily be placed.  From a business point of view  we have everything to gain by  welcoming outside capital which  cannot do otherwise than contribute largely to the pre-eminence  of Greenwood as a great mining  centre.  power. This new station and  the two big stations on the Atn--  erican side can be operated as  one plant, assuring customers,  whether on the Canadian or  American side, continuity of service. Toronto will receive the  first large block of power. In  California electrical energy is  being transmitted a distance of  nearly two hundred miles.  ��wiax��3^r4f-��.Trtxr*.*aiij��*-3-��ouoffl��.*s:f  Citizens of Greenwood may well  congratulate themselves upon  having again secured a representative mayor and city council. It  is iust as well that the talk of  nominating a candidate to oppose  Mayor Naden only ended in talk.  Mr? Naden has discharged his  duties with signal ability and  inaugurated a new era of retrenchment and financial reform. His grasp of civic  affairs is so thorough that a continuance of the same policy may  be expected during the- current  year, with the co-operation of  aldermen united in working for  the best interests of the .city.  There still remains much to be  accomplished. We would merely  mention in passing that a reduction of the assessment would be  gratefully welcomed by overtaxed  ratepayers. .Those people who  have remained here throughout  the period of depression should  be asked to bear as light a burden as possible   in   view of the  A number of philanthropic  ladies and -reritlemen are endea-  voring to provide +he city and  district with a new ambulance.

Iu order to  provide funds a dance will be  given iu the Masonic hall on Friday night. Everybody who can  afford it should buy a ticket for  the coming event. It matters  little whether one is able to dance  or not. Accidents are not infrequent, in the surrounding camps  and the consciousness that one  has done something towards aiding an injured brother will bring  i+s own reward.

It is a matter for congra-  tulation that ex-Mayor Smailes  has re-entered the council where  his business capacity will be  exercised in promoting tbe best  interests of the city? Duncan  Mcintosh will also prove a strong  addition to the mayor's advisers.  If he applies the same common  sense to civic affairs that he does  to opening up high grade properties the interests of Greenwood  will certainly be well looked  after.  The utilization of water power  by man is one of the characteristic features of the past decade.  In this respect the effete east is  keeping pace with the progressive west. The most wonderful  generators of electric power ever  built were set in operation the  other day in the power house of  the Canadian Niagara Power Co.,  on the Canadian side. Two of  the units were started, each being of 10,000 electrical horse  power, of which the station,  when completed, will have eleven  making its capacity 110,000 horse  The McBride governrnent secured a lot of free advertising-  over its assurances that the pro-  vincia1 -finances would show a  surplus this year.
