FURNISHINGS  Explosion at Providence���Ambulance  Takes Exercise���Other Notes.  . An explosion occurred at the Providence mine early Wednesday morning  that painfully injuied Harry Vielette  and Andy Hanson. Vielette was engaged in mucking and encountered  some unexploded dynamite, which  went off and threw bits of rock about  his face and head, causing painful but  not serious injuries. Hanson, who was  drilling nearby, also received a good  share of the flying rock and his face  and.eyes are also severely cut and  bruised.���Viclette-was -taken to-the  hospital where he is being attended by  Dr. Spankie. Hanson was taken to  his home and is undei' the care of Dn  Oppenheimer.  Mrs. Spencer, who has been under  treatment in the hospital for some  time, is progressing favorably.  The ambulance had its first call  Wednesday morning when it was used  to convey John Cavanaugh from the  Norden hotel ��� to the* hospital? Mr.  Cavanaugh came'to Greenwood from  Butte, Mont., and here he contracted  pneumonia. His condition is not considered serious.  G. Racbier entered theihospital Wednesday suffering from, inflammation of  the eyes. He came from Boundary  Falls.   ^__   Medical Society-  The Boundary Medical society held  its annual meeting last Monday at  Phoenix. The meeting was a successful one and the members are well  pleased with the work of the society.  The object of the organization is to  regulate all matters pertaining to the  practice of the medical profession in  the Bouudary district. The following  officers were elected: Dr. R. B  Boucher, Phoenix, piesident; Dr. C.  M. McKenzie, Grand Forks, vice-  president; Dr G. S. Gordon, Phoenix,  secretary-treasurer.

CHANGE RESOLUTION  Mr.   Naden's   Amendment  Passed Without Protest  GREENWOOD NEXT YEAR  Boundary District Finds Much Favor  With Associated Boards  of Trade.  At the annual meeting of the Associated Boards of Trade held in Cranbrook, the power question, which is of  so much interest to the people of  Greenwood and vicinity, came up for  discussion. The resolution which was  passed by several Boundary boards  and which the Times published, last  week, was moved and seconded by the  Trail delegates. The resolution was  remarkable for the specific mention  it contained of the West Kootenay  Power and Light Co. To this the convention made prompt objection on the  ground that the Associated Boards  should not be used to further the'in-  terests of private companies. This  was a point that caused lengthy discussion when, the Greenwood board  passed the resolution and G. R. Naden,  the Greenwood delegate, brought matters to a head by introducing an  amendment, which reviewed the need  for more power in the Boundary district and urged the legislature to pass  the necessary measures providing for  more power at the same time avoiding  all mention of any particular company.  The original motion was then withdrawn and the new resolution passed  Avithput:.objection.. It. was promptly  wired the premier at Victoria for consideration by the legislature. It was  felt by the delegates that the measure  for providing more power for the  Bounnary district now before^the legislature .would not meet with serious  objection and that relief from present  conditions would soon be realized. The  resolution passed at Cranbrook will  have to be ratified by the local boards  of trade within ten days. Tbis may  may be done in two ways. A special  meeting may be called and formal action taken or no notice need be taken  and that will be considered equivalent  to ratification.  ���-���:?_���-   ^GREENWOOD  1907.  --  The meeting in 1907 will be held in  Greenwood. The invitation to meet  here was extended by Mr. Naden and  it was'enthusiastically accepted. Mr.  Naden informed tne Times there was  a strong feeling among the delegates  that greater attention should be paid  to important matters iu the Boundary.  u They realize more and more that the  growing importance of Greenwood and  vicinity and outside points are beginning to understand that the development of this district is having a tremendous effect upon the prosperity of  Southern British Columbia.  The whoie ^convention was marked  by interesting and successful meetings.  The banquet was very fine though  numerous speeches made it rather prolonged. Excellent speeches were made  by J. L. Retallack, Smith Curtis, F. E.  Sin-.-psou of the Cranbrook Herald and  others. Good music and numerous  recitations made the program thoroughly enjoyable.  RENDELL  For Sale.

CITY BAND GETS GRANT  Fire  Chief Thinks  Brigade Should  Practice���City Engineer Submits Full Report-"  Council met Monday night. Those  present were Mayor Naden, Aldermen  Mathison, Wood, Bunting, Nelson and  Sullivan. Several reports were received, including those of the fire department and the city engineer, The  fire chief, A. D? Hallett, recommended  that money be set aside to pay the firemen for practice drills to be held at  regular intervals. This was referred  to the fire and light committee for  consideration: The report from the  school board-was referred to the finance  committee.  The question of giving public assistance to the city band came up for  discussson. ,The mayor explained  that the city of Rossland had invited  the band to take part in the carnival,  offering $200. This had been increased  to $275 through the liberality of some  of Rossland's citizens, but the Greenwood musicians could not go for that  amount without going into debt and  $100 was asked for from the council.  To this there was no opposition. It  was felt that the band was an important factor in keeping the members  of the fire brigade together, aud as  Greenwood was one of the few Bqund-r  arys towns., that had an efficient band  every encouragsment should be given  it. On motion of Aldermen Nelson  and Mathison it was decided to grant  the band the sum of $50.  RAISED  Cr,RRK'S SALARY.  The mayor brought up the question  of increasing the salary of City Clerk  Taylor. His worship reviewed in suitable terms the faithful service he had  rendered even under increasing burdens. It was , in keeping -with the  dignity of the City of Greenwood that  its busiest official should be well paid  and he would recommend that the  clerk's present salary be increased to  $115.00 per month, dating from Janu-  arv_lst.,-This^wa5; unanimously car  ried. His worship remarked that he  thought it was the clerk's treat, but he  hoped the increase in income would  not unduly add to his physical proportions. ,. .    .   : ���  Alderman Bunting brought up the  question of replacing the present cumbersome hose wagon. He had visited  other towns, notably Grand Forks, where  they have rigs that were much more  suitable to mountain towns. He-suggested that a trade be arranged with the  manufacturers or some other town for  a more suitable vehicle. The present  hose wagon weighs fifty hundred and  is too heavy. The mayor thought the  suggestion was a good one. -Alderman  Nelson pointed out that Greenwood  was favored in having their fire hall  in the upper part of the town and the  hurried calls were for the most part  down hill and the brigade could return  as leisurely as they pleased. No action  was taken and the fire and light conj-  mittee were recommended to be on the  lookout for a favorable deal.  CITY  ACCOUNTS.

The Winnipeg Free Press, the recognized organ'of the Liberal party in  Western Canada, and one of the leading papers of Canada, deals with the  tariff question in a careful and intelli-  gent manner. It takes for its text an  extract from a  Moose Ja*v  speech of  Hon. Frank 'Oliver, minister of the interior, delivered recently. Quoting Mr.  Oliver, the F,ree Press says:  "The basic principles of the Liberal  policy of taxation," he is reported to  have said, "was the equalization, of the  burden. The Conservative policy was  to tax the producer and to protect the  manufacturer, or tax the poor and protect the wealthy. The Liberal policy  was to tax the wealthy and relieve the  producer. In every case before the  tariff commission farmers had declared  for reductions while the manufacturers wanted increases. To vote for  an opposition candidate is to vote to  give the manufacturers what they  want and if West Assiniboia sent an  opposition member to Ottawa, the government could not be blamed should  they not grant West Assiniboia's request, and it was now up to the electors to say what they want. It was a  happy chance and he hoped that there  would be no uncertainty of expression.  He showed that Moose Jaw city used  5,000,000 feet of rough lumber per year;  should the lumbermen's views be met  aud a duty of 52 per thousand imposed,  Moose Jaw would pay an additional  tax of $10,000 a year, an increase of  one-third, the present revenue being  about 530,000."-  With    the   following   comment   the  Press proceeds: I  ���*' No other opinion was expected |  from Mr. Oliver, seeing that he is a!  Westerner and the representative of j  the West in the cabinet; but it isgrati-j  fying to note that he has taken a stand j  publicly that -will make it impossible  " We do not believe for a moment  that the tariff commission will recommend a higher tariff. The commissioners have taken evidence in all parts  of Canada and have heard expressions  of opinions of all kinds from the out  and out free trader to the ultra-protectionist; and the net result of their  hearings must be to convince them  that any changes of note in the tariff,  whether up or down, will be fraught  with danger."  The present tariff is a humdrum compromise one; nobody i.s enthusiastic  about; ic is too high for the low tariff  advocates ;ind too low for the protectionists; it has many critics -and few;  friends. Yet the test of time has  shown tliat it is on the whole well-  suited to'the requirements of the Canadian people.  It has given this country a longer  period of tariff stability than it has  ever known. Under its operations the  manufacturers have made money, for  the first time; and the investments in  factories have shown enormous growth.  At the same time the consumer has  been given substantial=relief from his  burden of indirect taxation; whllo our  sea-borne commerce has responded to  the enlarged opportunities afforded by  the lower tariff. - -  The tariff which is in   force today is  not a  high  tariff���the  requests of the  .-)��� *. *  manufacturers made to the tariff commission make that clear. In almost  every case they asked for increases at  at least half as much again. It would,  perhaps, strain the truth to describe it  as a low tariff. It is a moderate tariff,  a compromise.tariff ; and with the conflicting;, interests that have to be  reckoned with this is the only kind of a  tasiff that can remain for any length  of lime upon the statute book. There  must always be a Canadian party in  favor of a moderate tariff, with still  lower duties to be ultimately achieved:  and this party, it is needless to say;  should be the Liberal party. There  was an alarming-, development of protectionist sentiment in the Liberal  party a few years since, which for a  time gave rise to fears that the party  was in imminent danger of being captured by ideas which it had resisted  for a generation. That danger is, we  think, over. The Liberals who believe  in the tariff being as low as conditions  will warrant are in an immense majority in the party; aud it is high time  that they made it quite plain that they  infeWd^tT"ccm"iinaVid~"the" ship." This"  would not be followed by any cleavage  in the party for the great majority of  the protectionist Liberals would fall in  line although there would be individual  desertions to the high tariff camp. But  even if it means disruption the Liberals  must find out where they stand on this  question ; we have been drifting too  long.  The Western Liberals will, of course,  stand to a man in favor of the traditional policy of the party ; and they  will recognize no other. A Liberal  party in favor of a Dingley tariff is  something they cannot conceive of;  and should this monstrosity ever make  its appearance their repudiation of it  will be final.  immigration is steadily moving westward and it is believed that ��� the town  that makes itself best known and that  stands ready to offer the most inducements will attract the largest number  of newcomers and enjoy the greatest  prosperity.  Unlike the country districts it is not  laborers that are most needed but it is  the capitalists that are required to  build up the permanent prosperity of  a town or city. With this end in view  organized efforts are being put forth  to obtain extensiveadvertising through  the medium of a publicity department  To this end the Brandon, Man., council at a recent meeting decided to appropriate a; sum of money and a committee was appointed to recommend to  the council a practical scheme and an  estimate of the amount of money required and it is expected that definite  steps will be taken in the near ���future  to widely advertise the city.  Brandon's action is really ah en-  dorsation of the'policy of .municipal  advertising, for during the past few  years large sums have been spent in  various advertising methods both by  the city and the most enterprising  merchants, and the tdecision to further  prosecute the work is evidence that  the experiences of the past have been  encouraging. Brandon is already one  of the best advertised cities in Manitoba and it will be interesting,to know  the results of this latest move.  Other cities are doing likewise. Calgary is raising* Sl5,000 to spend in  municipal advertising and optimists  on the board of trade expect large increases in the population during the  next few years. The city of Spokane  is raising S40,000 and Vancouver and  Victoria are also actively pushing forward the enterprise.  We believe that to advertise a city or  town is just as important as for a business man to advertise his. goods. If a  municipality   has resources,  how   are  they to become quickly known unless  they are advertised ? If a town or city  has in its vicinity the essential resources that make for prosperity, truthful,  intelligent*, judicious advertising will  largely assist its growth and permanent upbuilding.

H. CRQPLEY,  Proprietor. i    ?  BRITISH COLUMBIA GAME.  .  The first annual report of the provincial game  and forest warden  for  British Columbia has just been issued.  This department was created  by  the  ���"Game Amendment Act, ��1905," and in  a province abounding in such wealth  of forest and game it is a highly important one and it seems strange that  it had not been instituted year*? ago.  A The   chief  of  the   department,   A.  Bryan  Williams, has evidently made  Vgood use of his time, for his report in-  : eludes much interesting material and  ; ��hov?s careful research and an  intelligent understanding of the conditions  of the wild in all parts of the province.  , In the opening pages of the report it is  pointed   out   that   during    1903   only  i . ������.���������..  $1,750 was collected in licence fees from  ] non-resident hunters. When it is remembered uthat British Columbia is  one of, if not the greatest, game country in the world and when the $1,750 of  licence fees is compared with the  revenue of..:the state of Maine for the  I same year amounting to $24,455, the  natural conclusion is that British Columbia profits too little from her wealth  of game. The primrrp cause is of  course the smaller number of tourists  who come to hunt in B. C. To overcome this the game warden advocates  more extensive advertising of the resources and attractions of the province.  To do this there can be nothing much  more useful than the text matter of  this first report. If the government  would revise and elaborate the report;  embelish itwith suitable illustrations  arid'distribute it in thousands among  the wealthy classes of Eastern Canada,  the United States and Great Britain,  it would probably be the means of attracting-large numbers of tourists to  British Columbia and - it is reasonable  to suppose that while they would enjoy the' excellent sport our mountains  provide and.-rejoice in the ' splendid'  climate of the vallays, they would at  the same time learn something of the  vast forest and mineral wealth-abound-  mg everywhere and carry back to their  friends glowing stories of British Columbia's natural greatness.. Some of  the beBt parts of the report have been  selected and reproduced as fellows :  Game a Valuable Asset.���There is  no doubt that , big game all over the  world is becoming scarcer every year,  while the number of sportsmen is increasing, . and, in consequence, more  and more difficulty is found in obtain-  ingipiOOd'shooting, so that it can only  be a.matter of a few years when those  - ^countries���that ���do ���not have���strict-  preservation of their game will not  have any game at all, and those that  dp will reap a rich harvest from the  number of people who haye come to  *liun,j,.'iti..?.!.? -?-.���?' .?'...'��� V.British Columbia still has a splendid  stock of game, and in spite of the  ; great amount of'slaughter during the  "last few vears, there is littledoubt that  it is the best all round country for  sport on the continent. Where else  can sportsmen go and find the same  variety of big game, moose, wapiti,  sheep, cariboo, goat, deer, grizzly,  blank and brown bear, wolves, lynx,  panthers, wild cats, and racoons, to  say nothing of the small game, which  embraces some of the best snipe shooting in the world, duck and geese, as  well as pheasants, prairie chicken and  other species of grouse, quail and, in  a few years European partridges may  be added to the lift. In addition to  the sport with rifle and shotgun, we  have such salmon fishing as is unknown elsewhere, and trout and grayling fishing unsurpassed in any other  country. When every branch of sport  into consideration, I do not think I  should have erred had I called it the  best game country in the world, and  not only on the continent.  Aad yet, in spite of the advantages  _the country can offer, what does it receive in the way ot revenue from its  game, and what benefit is it to people  living in the province ? With the exception of the men who shoot birds,  and those who provide outfits and act  as guides for the tourists who come.,  the only people who really benefit are  the Indians and, prospectors. The  province, at present, gets practically  nothing in the way of revenue. Dux  ing the season of 1904 only 35 nonresidents paid for a hunting licence,  and though it is likely that a few more  evaded the fee, still their number  would not have made any material difference.   The amount of revenue from  these people amountedto $1,750, which  is nothing compared with the amount-  collected in the .state of Maine hi 1903-  where hunting licences were taken on*  by 1,697 non-residents, producing a  total revenue of $24,455. It is even  very small compared with the amount  collected in New Brunswick, where 338  non-residents paid the sum of $10,140;  and it is absolutely absurd compared  with the total revenue collected in the  states of Illinois and Wisconsin for the  year 1903, which aggregated the enormous sums of $98,750 and $90,169, respectively. (These latter figures include a residents' licencejof $1 a head.  Yet British Columbia is a better  game country than all the states mentioned put together, and could afford  sport to at least as many visitors as  the state of Maine, or a half a dozen  similar states. Had we the number of  visitors the sport of the couatry would  entitle us to expect, the actual amount  collected as revenue would be a small  thing compared with the amount expended by tourists iii guides*, horses,  hotels, etc., and which would benefi t  everybody directly or indirectly.  It is very seldom that a man comes  into this country to shoot big game  without leaving behind him $1,500, and  more often it is double that amount;  while, in addition to this, it is quite a  frequent occurrence that a man who  comes here simply and solely te shoot,  whiie he is here sees the commercial  advantages of the' country, and not  only invests money himself, but advises his friends to do likewise, and  generally advertise the country. Such'  men as these, even if they came iri  numbers, would hardly make any difference in the amount of game ; they,  only want a few specimen heads and  shoot nothing that is not worth mounting. A good many of them are content with less than the amount they  are allowed to kill, while others shoot  nothing unless they think it has a  record head.  Now, why does British Columbia attract so much less than its fair share  of wealthy sportsmen, to whom distance and expense is no object when  sport is in question ? There are several  reasons; first, of all, because so little  is really known of the country. A few  people have been here, but of these-  "few the percentage who have got any  sport is very small. The chances are  they arrive here perfect strangers,with  only a faint idea of where to go or how  to get Iguides and outfits; there has  been nobody in authority to whom *o  apply for information: they ask the.  hotel clerk or porter, who has very  likely as much knowledge of the subject as themselves, and, finally, they  get off and follow a more or less beaten  track. Wherever they go they find Indians ahead of them, prospectors killing indiscriminately, or hunters who  make a living by selling meat and  heads. The people have gone away in  disgust and have warned others not to  come.  To improve the present conditions  and to make the province moreTattrac-  tive to tourists as well as to protect the  game and increase the revenue, the  warden recommends that game wardens be employed during the greater  part of the year in Bridge river. Ghil-  coten and East Kootenay. . These  would be especially usefnl in preventing the ruthless destruction committed  every year by the Indians and in collecting the licence fees.  Attention is paid to all classes of  large and small game. The report  deals with mountain sheep, of which  there are four varieties left:  In this province we. still have a fair  number of the common big horn left,  and an the northern portion of the  country large numbers of the other  species. In East Kootenay, where the  biggest and best heads of the common  big horn a��*e got, tl.ere is still a fair  stock, bat the Stony Indians have, during the last few years, killed off such  numbers that only a quarter of what  should be remains.  In the Ashnola(Similkameen), which  was once the big horn country, there  are onlj' a few specimens lef", and the  increase in the number of panthers  and the in-breeding, consequent on the  small number of animals, makes it unlikely that the stock will ever increase  unless active measures are taken at  once to protect them. The same applies to the Okanagan.  Bridge River and Chilcotin are still  good countries, but of late years the  number has decreased rapidly ; this is  partly due to the influx of prospectors,  but more to the Chilcotin Indians, who  never kill any other kind of game if  they can get ewes.  It is pleasing to be able to relate tliat  'ri Cassiar there are still quantities of  the Ovis stonei and allied varieties.  The Indians in that district are happily too lazy to climb to the mountain  tops, where these  animals  spend mos  of their time.  Some attention is paid to fishing and  recommendations are made .for the  preservation of the finny tribe and for  the restocking of some streams that  are rapidly becoming depleted. The  report will stimulate public interest in  the game and fish of the province and  lead to more stringent measures being  employed to protect the wild life of  mountain, lake and stream.

BOUQUETS  FOR  THE  HAND.  : The Greenwood band have made a  hit and they are the most popular fellows in the city. Their excellent music  contributed largely to the success of  the umasquerade and all through  they have played an important part.  The Rossland Miner remarks that "As  ati amateur organization this band is  \yell worth hearing ; indeed it would  shame many professional bands.    The  resolution dealing with the question  similar to trie one passed in Cianbrook.  The'council-felt'thi.t they were not  called upon to enter into the matter  except in general terms without reference to any particular company.  Alderman Nelson .introduced a bylaw to amend the present bylaw governing the granting of liquor licenses  in the city. The new bylaw aimed to  decrease the numbei of hotels and  saloons that can be licensed from 17 to  13. It was the opinion of the council  that provision should be made to prevent any increase over the number of  thirteen and that the saloons should he  entirely cancelled. The bylaw was  discussed at some length and will  come up for third reading at trie next  meeting.*  The city engineer presented a full  and comprehensive report which contains much information of deep interest to every properly owner in  Greenwood. It deals most extensively  with the improved water system, explaining the Anaconda agreement and  includes a comparative table which  shows a steady increase in the revenue  during the past three years. -JL'his is  the report in full: '  Thk Mavok and Ai.dkk-mkn Citv ot-  Gk hen woo I).  Sirs : I beg to submit my report for  the year just ended.  Owing to the installation of the Lind  creek extension to the water system  the expenditure on street's was. kept at  a minimum the total expenditure  amounting* to Sl.061.9S .which is the  lowest since incorporation. Of this  amount ��7.4 50 was expended in protecting the banks of Boundary creek and  the balance is made up of minor repairs to streets? sidewalks and a small  amount of street work in connection  with waterworks extensions.  WATERWORKS.  The extension to waterworks con-j  sists of a masonry reservoir constructed  of flag stones aid Portland cement  mortar, capable of empounding over  200,000 gallons, or ���sufficient .for., one  day's supply for the city. ' From the.  reservoir, which is situated on Lind  creek, about one half a mile east of  Anaconda, an 8-inch main conveys the  water to Anaconda, from which point  a 6-inch main leads to gGreenwoad and*  joins the old system at the Greenwood  hotel, whilst ��� a 4-inch main . supplies,  the Anaconda 'System' and rejoins the,  6-inch main at Sixth street, thus, en-:  suring circulation. The whole system  consists of 11,500 feet as follows:  ������3,00.0 feet of ..8 inch  4,i'00 feet of ." .......6 inch  1,750 feet of  4 inch  2,300 feet of ;.......... 2 inch  all of which consists of wire wound  wooden pipe supplied by the Pacific-  Coasl Pipe Co. of Vancouver, and is  under varying* heads up to 150 pounds  per square inch and has to date proved  highly satisfactory.  One of the conditions upon "which  the property owners of Anaconda  agreed to have record transferred to  Grreehwobd^was^thafr-they���should-���-be  suppHed water for one year gratis  from mains to be laid on certain streets  and this condition has been fully met  by the city, ten key hydrants having  been installed, besides eleven services  and three fire hydrants, from which  there will be no revenue until October,  1906, when it will amount to $510 pet-  year, or within a few dollars of the  amount necessary to cover the sinking  fund for the debentures issued to cover  cost of system.  During the year 37 services were  installed in the City of (greenwood,  which greatly exceeds the number of  former years.  The most important item after the  Lind creek extension consisted of taking up 2.500 feet of the 4-inch mains  on Copper, Dundee and Silver streets  and sinking them to a depth of live  aud a half foet. Iu places these mains  were not over three feet and had  caused anxiety and expense every  spring, the latter amounting to 3477.70  last spring; 1,735 feet of this 4-inch  pipe was replaced with 6-inch sheet  pipe on Copper and Dundee streets and  1,1D0 feet of 4 inch pipe was relaid on  Silver and Summit streets and the  balance of the 4-inch pipe is on hand  for future extensions. ���;  Iu addition to the above between  four and five hundred feet of service  pipe in Copper street laid in 1899 and  l'RKj were tikcn up and deepentd to  avoid the constant trouble with frost.  The cost of this work was more ex-  peiisiv : than if the main had-never  been laid, but there having been  mains on these streets the cost was all  charged to maintenance, when at least  the cost of new pipe and the depth below former depth could justly be  charged to capital account, but ���the  whole work has been charged to maintenance and this naturally shows a  ���leficil for the year?

On January 27th the Mining* World  published a large and elaborately illustrated edition reviewing- the year's  mining in all parts of the world. Each  state and country was treated in a  special article written by authorities  familiar with the prevailing conditions in their particular country.  British Columbia was given.a prominent place among the foremost mining  countries of the world, and it is candidly admitted that this province has  recently taken a place that corcmands  the attention of the world. G. Sheldon-  Williams reviewed B. C. mining and  some of the most interesting features  are here reproduced:  MAKKED DEVELOPMENT  " In reviewing the progress of the  mining industry in British Columbia  during the past year, the first thing  that strikes the observer is the very  general and universal nature of the  marked development and improved  conditions which have obtained all  over the province. The area of British Columbia is immense, larger than  many an old world empire, and the  known mineralized sections of a province which has been but little prospected even at this date produce the  utmost diversity of min :rals under the  most widely differing conditions. It  could, therefore, hardly have been expected that the closing of the current  year would show a general and high  advance all along the line in every  mineral district of the province.  "And yet, with a few exceptions,  such is the case this year. It is a very  far cry from the Boundary to Atlin, a  very far cry from Hast Kootenay to  the west coast of Vancouver Island,  yet those widely separated mining sections of the great Province of British  Columbia have all some story to place  before the world���a story of profitable  activity, of good returns, and of an  enormous increase in development.  "Many things have contributed to  this satisfactory state of affairs.  Among the primary causes, of course,  certainly as far as regards the pecuniary value of the year's output, must  be reckoned the increasingly high  prices of three of British Columbia's  staple mineral products���namely, copper, silver and lead. The latter metal,  indeed, has risen to a figure which has  .wiped. out_the lead__boiinty _P.rpyided  some two years ago by the Dominion  government with a view to assisting  the development of the vast bodies of  ore existing in the province- The price  of silver has also advanced very considerably, while that of copper has  reached an abnormally high figure.  " If the advance in lead  and silver  has* principally benefitted the. Koote-  nays and the   Slocan,   the   increased  price of copper has had a   far  more  widespread effect.    This is due to the  fact that copper���sometimes of a low  grade, sometimes high, and in combination with one or both of the precious  metals���has been  found in   immense  quantities in most  of the mineralized  districts of the province.   The mines  of   the   Boundary,   of   Rossland,  and  now of the Similkameen, are cases in  point where both high and low grade  copper properties have been developed  with the  most  satisfactory  results in  the interior; while, on  the coast, the  Britannia mine���thought at first to be  a  purely   low    grade    concentrating  proposition, but now proving with development to carry larger values���the  Tyee "mine, the  Marble Bay  mine on  Texada   Island,   and numerous other  valuable properties'! just comiug to the  front, prove that the interior of  British Colui-bia has no  monopoly of this  valuable commercial metal.  has "made good"  "By far the most potent agent in the  past year's mining prosperity  of the  province, however, has' lain in :he fact  that British Columbia has. in the slang  of  the street, ' made  good.'   In other  words, she has learned  her lesson aud  begun   to   help herself.    Eight }*ears  ago, every possible  method of exploiting   the  then only partially  realized  mineral wealth of the  province was in  full  and  active operation���except the  simple vet necessary process of digging  out tbe ore.  " Shares were sold   in the eastern  states and provinces and in Great  Britain to the extent of many millions  of dollars worth, in companies whose  properties had the-'solitary merit of  geographical position���and some not  even >that. 'Mines' that had no location or real existence whatever were  .unloaded on the unwary1 investor.  Every fraudulent device that could be  conceived to introduce the wedge of  separation between the fool and his  money was employed.  "It was the Saturnalia of the wild  cat, and for several years British Columbia did her little best to convince  the investing public of the truth of  that time honored adage which says  that 'A mine is a hole in the ground,  and its owner is a liar.'  "The reaction came at last, and for  an appreciable number of years Btit-  ish Columbia mining, with one or two  exceptions, was in a very languishing  condition. Capital was shy���the burnt  child dreads the fire���and the wretched  camp follower of the vast army of  sharks aud shysters who had fattened  so long on the public gullibility still  hung about the province, unfitted for  honest work, and paralyizing every  effort made in that direction by better"  men.  " It was not possible, however, that  a province so rich in minerals both  base and precious should remain forever under a cloud; and it speaks  volumes for the genuine wealth of the  vast area which is now being slowly  but surely developed by British Columbia mining industry, that lhat industry should have so speedily recovered from the disastrous results of  ignorance, mismanagement, incapacity and downright felony.  RICH  AND  VARIED.  "The recovery was very slow at first,  but gradually mining men of scientific  experience began to investigate those  rich and varied mineral resources  which the mining promoters and  speculators of former years had painted  in such glowing colors without ever  driving a pick into. These men had  ample capital at their backs, and business capacity as well as scientific skill;  and the results of their investigations  were so satisfactory in a number of  cases that valuable properties were  opened up The high returns from  these, attracted further investments,  and, in the course of the last two years,  but more especially within the twelvemonth just passed, capital has begun  to move towards British Columbia in  no uncertain way. I/arge plants have  been installed, the capacity of previously existing ones increased, uew  properties have' been Ideveloped and  work commenced on others which had  long been idle; with the immediate result of a large increase in the annual  mineral output, and the absolate certainty that that large increase will be  dwarfed into insignificauce by the  output of a year or two hence."  BOUNDARY   INCREASE.  Continuing his article Mr. Williams  gives a massive array of statistics  covering the whole of the province.  These show that in the Boundary and  "Similkameen therewas-anincreaseof  $1,461,219; in East Kootenay an increase of $1,716,828, and in Atlin an  increase of $5,026. In Cariboo, West  Kootenay and Lallooet there were small  decreases in the year's output. It is  pointed,out that the falling off in the  latter districts was the result of an unusually dry, short season and the resultant lack of water.  GRANBY DIVIDENDS.  In conclusion the article says :  " Finally, in the Boundary country,  where the Granby company signalized  the last month of the year just passed  by declaring a dividend of $405,000-  the largest single dividend ever- declared hitherto by a British Columbia  mine���railroad construction has also  been active. This, indeed, is scarcely  surprising, in view of the prog ress of  that camp, whose ore shipments for 1905  are in the neighborhood of 930,000 tons.  'It has not been possible within the  limits of an article of this description  to do more than give the barest outline  of the gratifying progress made by  the mining industry of British Columbia during the past year; or the encouraging prospects for an immense  advance during the coming twelvemonth. But the figures speak for  themselves. In the immense area of  this province, an area whose outer  fringe only has been prospected���and  that not thoroughly, as fresh discoveries in every camp are constantly bearing evidence���an area whose total  white population is under 175,000 souls,  it would seem that a mineral production of close on S21,000,000 for twelve  months is a tolerably fair showing.  The mineral industry in British Columbia is only in its infancy; its  growth will be a surprise in a continent of tig things." ���  GREENWOOD ILLUSTRATED.

CSSv  GURE FOR FOREIGN COMPETITION,  Mr. Fielding, the finance minister,  replying to a shoe manufacturer of .the  eastern provinces, who appeared before  the tariff commission to ask for a duty  that would force oiit the Boston shoe  manufacturers, and complained of the  advertising done by them, said:  " You'll have to advertise. You can  get relief from, printer's ink." Mr,  Charles Slater, of the Slater Shoe company, applauds this statement, and  says that in seven years he has  quadrupled 'his business, arid simply  as a result of advertising. ��� -"* There  are," he added,''other good shoes made  in Canada, but there is no other advertised shoe. 1 am content with the  present tariff on the finished shoe, and  our advertising is an evidence of our  belief."  "-.. That's the talk, Mr. Slater. The  success of any business dependsupon  the push and energy of its management. The best article ever manu  factured could not find a national sale  in these'dags"withoutadvertising?"T-he  Douglas shoe of Boston has a continental reputation which, besides making its manufacturer a fortune made  him governor of Massachusetts. If  the Canadian manufacturers spent  half the time they now waste in  grumbling over tariff matters in push  ing their businesses by advertising  they would not long have to complain  about Yankee competition. A good  article well advertised is sure to sell.  The finance minister's advice was  timely.-���Ex.  "prosperousmining"  town of Greenwood, the B, C. Copper  company's smelter, and the Dominion  Copper Co's smelter at Boundary Falls  It is a splendid advertisement for the  province and for Greenwood and vicinity in particular.  In the general review of the world's  mining operations, attention i.s paid  Canada in general and the Boundary  in particular as follow:   j  " For the decade ending 1905 the Ca  nadian mines have increased production by 425 per cent. The bulk of Ontario copper comes from the nickel-  copper ores worked by ��� the Canadian  Copper company in the Sudbury district In British Columbia the Boundary district mines have made some  progress in the way of improving the  finances of some of the' weaker companies of promise. The Granby remains easily foremost, Has had a very  good year and its smelting plant is being increased '*  In the world's production of copper  Canada is given eighth place, being  equal with Germany and being exceeded by the United States, Mexico,  Spain, Japan, Chili and Australia. It  is reasonable to expect, however, that  with the rapidly increasing output of  British Columbia mines Canada wil  soon take a much higher place among  the great copper-producing countries  of the world.
