WATCHMAKERS AND JEWELLERS  Copper Street  Greenwood  A. B. W- Hodges, manager of  the Granby smelter at Grand  Forks, this morning- confirmed  the various interviews published  in the Spokane and Nelson papers  to the effect that the Granbj  mines -were to reopen. Mr. Hodges  said that after the closing down  of the mines a great many of their  employees had left the country  and practically none of these men  were now in their employ. If the  men had been working for them  they could have made a direct  proposition to them, but under  the circumstances the only thing  they could do, they had done, by  posting the scale" given in full in  another column- Both at the  smelter at Grand Forks and at  the mines at Phoenix work will  be started tomorrow with the  men who are willing to come to  wcrk.  At the offices of the Miners'  Union at Phoenix this afternoon  it was stated emphatically that  the telegram of W- J- Luth'it to  the Spokesman-Keview was right  and that the miners voted on  Wednesday night, unanimously,  -not -to take any reduction in  wages.  The 'report" .that*" large "numbers  of "meTt'cafiic'-in-to-Plioea4x���after  the annouacement of Manager  Gray.es is denied.  The immediate actuation ia on��  which-the men alone can settle  either by taking definite actionjor  by taking ho action. For the  sake of the country, and the  workingmen who hav�� permanent  interests in the country, it is to  be hoped that whatever action is  taken by any and all parties con-  "cerned will be the result of careful consideration. It seems that  if some, definite infermation of  every phase of the situation  could be had. publicity and  knowledge might do a great deal  to bring about a settlement of the  situation which would be satis-  f actory all round. It is sincerely  to be hoped that when operations  are resumed they will be commenced on an understanding  which shall promise settled  conditions for some time ahead.  As yet the question is not a  local one except in: so far as a  settlement at Phoenix and Grand  Forks might offer a basis of  operations. Neither the Consolidated at Phoenix nor the B.  C. Copper Co. here ar�� at all involved in the matter. It seems,  however, to be generally felt that  if operations are resumed at the  Granby it wiil mean a re-opening  of all the Boundary mines.   .  Superintendent Biesel of the  Snowshoe mine today stated that  he knew nothing of the report  that the Snowshoe would optn at  once to supply flux for the Trail  smelter.

Kenneth McKenzie and Isaac  Goosney were the first of the  local people te reach home from  the difficult summer's work put in,  in building the hatchery on  Stewart lake. They arrived in  Greenwood on Sunday last.  The conveyance of supplies  into the north country by way of  the Skeena river proved vary  arduous and the party were six  weeks getting in to the lake.  Heavy shipments were being  made by the G. T. P., and for a  time the passage of the river was  interfered with and caused considerable trouble. At one place,  at the canyon���100 Iudiaqs were  employed to carry over the supplies. Inland, the Indians" were  employed to whip and saw the  lumber for the buildings.  The hatchery on Stewarfc lake  at the headwaters of the Fra9er  river was erected under the supervision or foreman Angus NichoU  son. It is 40 by SO teet, with a  truss roof, and is fed by an underground flume which carries the  water for a distance of 700 feet  sufficiently protected t�� avoid  frost. The water is delivered  into the hatchery at a pressure of  about 75 pounds to the square  inch. The hatchery has a  capacity of 10,000,000 eggs.  -About-3, OOO.OOO^were ..pufc.'-'in-tk^  Stewart Lake building .this  fall  they had left, he scrubbed up his !  car,, put the dinner on and set the j  table. j  TT ��� '  He was a married   man,    aged !  i  about 51* years. He had three  children iu China. He was a well  preserved Chinaman and did not  appear to have been addicted to  opium or habits of excess.  Local   Chinamen   refused    to  "savez"   anything   of   him.   ���  ROCK CREEK RIPPLES  Archie   R.    Galbraith   of   the  Craige-Ncuk   stock    farm,   Spokane,   Wash.,    was     recently   a  visitor at the home of A. D. McLennan. Fi'om him Mr.McLennan  acquired :i  black  French   Perch-  eron   imported   horse,     Toulon.  Toulon was imported fromFrance  this year and  is recorded  iu   the  French    Percheson  register,   as  well   as   in   the   American stud  book.    He  is  without  doubt the  finest horse .that ever  came  into  this  part  of   British   Columbia.  Mr.   McLennan believes that the  Percheron is the horse  most suitable for this section aud also that  the   day   of scrub  horses here is  past.    In purchasing Toulon, he  has spared   no   efforts to procure  the very best horseflesh available  and thepeople of Rock Creek and  Bridesville apparently appreciate  his efforts as  he had no  trouble  in organizing   a  company under  the name of the Rock  creek and  and Bridesville Percheron Association.    Ten shares were  sold at  $300 a share.    Toulon is  now in  Mr. McLennau's stables at High-  laud Farm, Rock Creek.  FURTHER REDUCTIONS  In addition to the reduction  in the freight rates, published in  The Times two weeks ago, and  which came into force on Tuesday  of last week, the following tariff  from Nelson to Greenwood  came into effect on Sunday,  December 1st. * The discrimination between merchants rates aud  the regular trade, it will be  noticed are superseded:  Wire us for Quotations  Onr facilities for.buyin.tr  Dominion, B.C., or  Granby  Stocks  on tbe curb in New York  or Boston are unequalled  ���Even our competitors  acknowledge that wc  can buy these stocks-  cheaper than they.

In   the    December  tuere is an luterestiag"  McClure's  and  careful  exposition   of   the   Lemieux  Act bv the President of Harvard  University��� one   of    the    most  scholarly  and sympathetic   students of social affairs in   America.  In these times when the  attitude  of the different forces in   society  towards one another   is   that of  war rather than of peace, the advantages which   President Eliot  notes in the Lemieux Act are  of  sppcial and peculiar interest. The  greater par-" cf his article is  concerned with giving an   impartial  history of the   workings   of   the  Act but   his   conclusions are   as  follows :  "The advantages -which this  Canadian law has over any legislation existing in the United  Btates may be briefly stated as  follows :  1. There is fio arbitration in it,  compulsory or other.  2. It prevents sudden blows aimed by capital at labor or by labor  at capital.  3. It prevents the sudden cessation of industries -which have lo  do with such necessaries of mod-  era life as fuel, the means of  transportation and communicat  ion, the lighting of towns and  citiss, and -water and power supplies.  4. It makes it necessary for the  aggressor in an industrial dispute  to have a "well-coasidered case  which will bear thorough publicity.  5. It informs the public, which  ultimately bears in higher prices  the burd=n of all industrial warfare, about the causes and issues  of every industrial dispute.  6. At the same time it leaves unimpaired the right of any group  of men to combine.for mutual advantage and to lock out,or strike,  after full public inquiry.  7. It tends to prevent or restrict  secret machinations on the part  of the employers and employees  because both know that publicity must come at last.  8. It gives opportunity through  the intervention of an impartial  public authority for reasoning  conciliation, the jemoval of misunderstandings and an amicable  settlement.  All these favorable effects the  Act produces without abridging  the freedom of either employers  or employees to maintain strong  combinations and to make joint  agreements without any intervention by a third party.  The short' name of this act is  the-^Ihdustrial-Disputes���IavestU  gation Act 1907, and this name  correctly describes it for it is an  act whose purpose is, not arbitration but conciliation, investigation, and publicity.  ion of services performed for the  whola people by virtue of franchises granted by the people. In  Great Britain various measures of  this kind have beon taken. The  telegraphs have long beeu  owned by the people. The railways have always been under  close control, although no movement to entirely nationalize them  has ever made much progress. In  Canada, it is to the. Laurier administration that we owe the fact  that Canadian railways are no  longer able to do quite as they  like and that whether they discriminate against a small community or kill passengers by negligence, a board -with extensive  powers may on the application  of any party affected call them to  account.  It is only in the natural evolution of reform that tbe Laurier  government today finds itself able  to bring the telephone and telegraph companies, with federal  charters into Hue with'this movement. Nevertheless, it marks  out the way of progress and happily too, it means the elimination  of a great deal of unfairness possible to be wrought by large combinations of capital. It means  that the present system of affairs  is capable of being so changed in  the orderly progress of events as  to finally provide for us a state of  society where the conditions of  life will be made as easy as it is  possible for imperfect men to  have them.  e  and CoMs  QUICKLY  G '"Sl-' Shiloh's ������'me  .-. fi5 ?<>��� iii,: .worst colli,  lituaharpt-si cou^h  ���try it on a gunr-  a n t e e of y o u r  money back ii it  doesn't act ual 1 v  C U K li quicker  than anyihinj; yon  ever tried.

Like the  preparation it represents,this charming  calendar���of exquisite aud appealing  beauty���stands out in contrast and is  exceptionally unique among art calen  dars for 1908.  The Pabst Extract Jewel Calendar,  as it is called, rich in color, exclusive  in design and strong in sentiment,  appeals to both men and women and  is beautiful as well as educational. It'  portrays a very handsome woman stand  ing between two rich red portiers in  such a position that the sun from the  back throws rays of light   across   her  Ts  unexcelled, as  is  evidenced  by  its  its popularity in all the towns  of the Boundary.

The time has arrived when  public interest requires that  the telegraph and telephone  companies holding federal  charters should be placed  under government control.  A bill will be introduced for  that purpose.  Such is -what is perhaps the  most important announcement  in the speech from the throne  which marked the opening of the  Dominion Parliament at Ottawa  en Thursday last. It is a declaration of the government's satisfaction with the system of super-  fision and control inaugurated  by th�� appointment of the Railway Commission and it doubtless  foreshadows a long 'step forward  ia the direction of government  ownership of public utilities, for  govtrnment control of telegraphs  and telephones can scarcely be regarded as other than one stage  in the evolution which will some  day place in the hands of the  state, th�� ownership and   operat-  so made that it admits   of   being  cleaned.  3.

Every stove shall- stand on an  iron or zinc plate at least two  feet by three feet for an ordinary  room stove.  5. Ladders must be kept firmly  fixed on all buildings of two storeys or more for easy access to  roof. Council may erect such  ladder at expense of occupant.  6. Chimneys shall be cleaned once  in every six months if inconstant  use, once in every twelve months  if not used regularly.  S. Lighted candles or lamps may  not be used in stables or other  places containing combustible  material.   .  9.

One of the most  far   reaching  reforms in   the   development   of  society,seriously proposed in Canada,   comes   in   the    movement  looking to municipal   ownership  of the daily   papers of   Toronto.  Toronto has six daily newspapers  and a representative of the Canadian Courier interviewed the proprietors, some of whom have given their lives to  the building up  of their   papers.    Mr.   Flavellc,  the President of the News was  ''cinch"  for   the   reporter.    Mr.  Flavelle is simplv the   owner   of  the News and as yet The News is  supposed to be hardly ou  a 'paving basis.    J. E.   Atkinson  who  has built up the  Toronto   Daily  Star by years of toil was willing  that the public should take  over  his journal, if he is convinced the  public interest demands it.    The  Globe and the Mail have  no  objections te the scheme   but when  the   reporter came" to   J.   Ross  Robertson, of the Telegram, and  Billy   Maclean,   oi   the   World,  their usual mania for   municipal  owaership had become a pha.utcm  and a shadow and   there   was,no  heart in them.   Their arguments  were very good   but quite  inconsistent with their usual  attitude.  Each has   a   paying   newspaper  which he is quite   unwilling   to  relinquish but strangely  enough  they are the two papers that have  for years   advocated, public   and  municipal  ownership   of   public  utilities.    Now the shoe - pinches.  Careful by-laws are being   prepared "to cover the question by the  City Solicitor   assisted   by S. H.  Blake, K.C.and Z. A. Lash.K.C.  In British Columbia  it is said  there are some newspapers   that  would be only too glad to sell out  to the government.    There   are,  however, two sides to  the argument.

The  population of Cripple  Creek, at  the   time represented   in   E.   J.  Carpenter'a new pl��y "At Cripple  Creek," to be presented at Greenwood  Opera House,   one   night  only, was mad* up of the flotsam  and jetsam  of   North   America.  These   people   lived   apart   iu a  little world of their own.    They  made their own laws,  had  their  own standards of right and wrong  and  defended them in their own  way.    They  lived hard,   fought  hard and died hard��� they loved  strongly and hated deeply. Their  lives   represented    almost   every  virtue and  every  sin.    Stories of  Cripple   Creek     furnish   a   vast  amount of romance, and from one  of these tales is woven the play  "At Cripple Creak."
