W. BLSON  Last Saturday the Board of  Trade received a telegram from  the Nelson Board urging the appointment of a delegate to proceed to Fernie to be present at  the conference to be held" over  the coal situation. The secretary hastily summoned the  executive council which 'discussed  the matter carefully but felt that  owing to not being invited by  either party to the question at  issue it would not be wise to take  hasty action. The Nelson Board  was so informed but on Saturday  evening renewed its request for  action.  Grand Forks and Phoenix took  action in the matter, the former  town sending Mr.- Spier, the latter Mayor Mathison.      , ^  The Greenwood Board took  steps however to keep informed  of the progress of events and so  informed the. Nelson Board, and  assured it that unless the trouble  was speedily settled, as it had  reason to believe it would be, and  it became apparent that the presence 'of a representative would  appear desirable that iL would be  glad to share in the public representations that might be made  by the commercial bodies of the  country, as to the injury a prolonged tie-up in the mines would  have on the prosperity of the  couutry in general.  ' The-- action .'of the executive  was decided by telegrams from  the Department of ," Labor' and  other, sources and ,was considered  iu the best interests of all concerned.  The baseball season opened Sunday  with a match between, theabove teams.  The weather was perfect and a large  crowd assembled to witness the old  rivals play.  Greenwood team was crippled by the  loss of Hallett, pitcher, he being* temporarily out of the game on account of  a bad arm, and the wise ones predicted  an easy win for the miners, but they  figured without the home boys infield,  for although Phoenix outbatted Greenwood the hits were invariably gobbled  up by some infielder attd runs cut off.  Allan relieved Clerf iu the sixth and  stopped the Phoenixrungetting*.  A  jp  With some Reward for the  Promoters  POST OFFICE BUSINESS  GREENWOOD   TO  PHOENIX  THE B. C. COPPER COMPANY  The splendid management of the  B. C. Copper Company was made apparent when the "strike came on and  the Canadian Pacific notified the  'smeller that owing- to fuel shortage it  could not undertake tci haul ore. The  B. C. people immediately made arrangements with the railway to haul  their ore on condition that the company would provide the coal. The  Copper co'y had reserves of coal enough  to supply the railway for three weeks  and coke enogh to keep the smelting  plant going. And so there is no stoppage at the big plant here, nor will  there be for some time.  Phoenix :  Stretzel, p.  Perkins, c.  King, 1st.  Ryan, 2nd.  .Sherbino, 3rd.  . McKelvcy, cf.  Thomas, l.f.

A boy began  to laugh, and laughed so he couldn't  stop. The old gentleman told his  mother that the boy needed a spanking,  in jjspanking on an empty stomach;  whereupon the man said: "Neither do  I; turn him over."

The 1906 shipments were 1,161,537 tons,  and that of 1907 will be a large gain  thereon.

Bubar  of Beaverdell, aud J. F. Royer���have  united in equal interest in the purchase of the S4.000 Freuch'Coach Horse  "Denois", imported for stock purposes.  Col. Watterson predicts that Hughes  will be next President of the United  States.  Some day, somebody with foresight and energy, and with ability  to enlist the necessary capital  will promote what will prove to  be a most profitable enterprise, a  tunnel between Greenwood and  Phoenix.  Such a tunnel run from any  one of several points iu the  valley at Greenwood would tap  rich leads of ore, prove drainage  for the Phoenix mines and eventually cheapen ore carriage from  Phoenix to both Boundary Creek  Valley and the Kettle River  Valley, where the present smelters are and where, the future ones  must necessarily be.  For years, at intervals this  tunnel project has been discussed,  and practical men have declared  it not only feasible, but easily so,  with large features of profit.  Such a tunnel would be the making of mines, and the making of  Greenwood.  Last year an eastern capitalist  expressed surprise that the opportunity had not been already  seized, and offered to contribute a  large part of the initial capital  and within the present month  others have expressed themselves  ready to invest in the scheme.  Where'is the man willing and fit  to launch'it 'c Such au one would  need be content to indentify himself with Greenwood for years,  because it. would need close attention and close business methods. To find such an one is the  only difficult feature of the matter because men large enough to  carry- through this undertaking  want to.confine their  to so small a town and  so remote- a district. * The big  men like big places as well as  big schemes, choice anchorage  for themselves as well as large  profit's. But the scheme is inevitable and while waiting why  may not some smaller man, but  of the right quality take up this  affair and by its success make a  greater man of himself ?  The carrying out of such an  enterprise would not need enormous capital. A four mile tunnel  would reach from Boundary Creek  to the heart of the great Phoenix  camp and at a 'depth of say 2000  feet. The east hill is proven to  contain many high grade leads  aud these and others would be  tapped enroute. Revenue from  ores would flow into the treasury  almost from the start. If connected with some of the high  grade mines from the beginning  so much the better. Between  Boundary _Creek_andJHhoenix_are.  the Elkhorn, Providence, Fremont, Strathmore, Defiance,  Prince Henry, Crescent, Helen,  Dynamo, Mavis, Tip Top, E. P.  U., Bay, Skylark and other  known high grade properties.  A tunnel started from any one  of several points in the valley  would pass through several of  these at considerable depth. If  with the scheme a concentrating  plant and possibly a small custom  sraelten were combined, grist  would come to its mill from the  beginning. The ores of which  there would be many leads, all  crosscut, could be extracted on a  royalty basis.  The undertaking need not be  financed from the beginning.  Like a railroad pushed by sections  into new country as that already  traversed become profitable, so  this project could be pushed from  lead to lead only so fast as development justified it aud as returns made it easy. The high  grade properties east of Bouudary  Creek have all grown richer and  larger with depth and this single  enterprise would mean the  demonstration of the great value  of many of them.  And iu the end what an admirable outlet for the heavy ore  tonnage of Phocuix such a tunnel  would be. What railway would  haul ore for many miles over a  heavy nioutitaim grade when a  water grade of four miles could  be substituted. Unless private  enterprise takes up this idea it is  only a question of time when one  of the railways will.  The relation of such an enterprise to Greenwood's future need  not be discussed. It would not  be exaggeration to say that it  would mean as much for the town  as all it has at present combined,  Although British Columbia is a very  large and sparsely settled province the  percentage of the Post office expenditures to Postmasters returns is much  lower than ia some of the Provinces.  The percentage of expenses to revenue in the several Provinces for year  ending June 30th, 1906, were as follows:  , .*''.   *���  Manitoba.... ...............    18 per cent.  Quebec    20       "  Ontario     22       "  British Columbia ............   24       "  Sask. and Alberta... ....36       "  Nova Scotia ....................   40       "  P.E.i ; .:..'.;...-. .40     "  The expense of the Greenwood ofiice  was $1089.78, and the revenue S4012.82.  THE COAL TROUBLE  A Story of Mail's Arbitrary  Methods.  SETTLEMENT AT MIDWAY  We are gratified to learu that the  prospects are good for the planting of  a French colony at Midway. Midway  is a most beautiful and fertile spot and  they who contemplate settling thereabout need have no hesitancy about  buying lands there or north or west at  present prices. The soil is good, the  climate good, crops are reliable and  prices good. If Rev. Father Perraux  should decide on settling his French  colony in the neighborhood, we would  look to see French thrift work a great  transformation in the entire neighborhood.

Montgomery  Ward denied ever having received the  letter after being jacked up for failing  to fill the order. ��� A tracer was sent out  by the postoffice department, and, lo  and behold, the draft was found in the  local bank, marked paid, to Montgomery Ward by the Fidelity National bank  of Chicago. Montgomery Ward may  not like it, but will have to make good.  Hail the letter contained money the  sender would probably been out the  $23.

The dependence of the multiplied interests not only of the  interior of British Columbia, but  of Alberta and the new prairie  provinces on the coal supply of  the Crow's Nest makes a cessation of fuel output a matter of  grave concern. The coal fields  situation never seems to be on a  harmonious basis. Somebody is  always creating trouble there and  unrest appears characteristic of  the field.  When the men are not busy  trying to force the operators, the  operators are doing something to  irritate the men.  There was peace aud stable  conditions for a few years after  the former great strike at Fernie  but so soon as the period of truce  was-up, unrest began again.  A few weeks ago representatives of both sides,had a prolonged conference at Calgary.  But nothing came of it. Nobody-  concerned, appeared to -want to  anticipate events sure to come  unless an agreement were reached. The managers appeared-  arbitrary and the men appeared  obstinate. The meeting'dissolv-  ed, the men returned'to work, the  uew conciliation act was appealed to. " But into a heap of inflammable material mischievous  hands droppedjlighted firebrands.  Sherman it is alleged kept the  men ignorant ��� of advices from '  headquarters, and mine managers  posted unhappy notices. And so  the men, deceived by their leader  and disgruntled by.,.their employer's acts 'quit'work." Lots of them  left the country, whether to better their condition or to get beyond the possible effects of the  uew law's administration- it may  not be said. And so the output  of fuel ceased.  Following that came stoppage  of the mining, the smelting, the  milling industries. Even railways pinched for fuel had to  abandon freight traffic. This  again effected other industries  and other fields of trade were  touched and stagnation general  through a wide area took the  place of activity.  The government realized that  it was up to it to do something and  sent the deputy minister of labor  west. Boards of trade and towns  everywhere through the interior  anxious to help remove the  trouble sent representatives to  Fernie. Perhaps never before in  the history of the Canadian West  was   the   mischievous   effect   of  men's blunders _more_keenly felt.   nor greater zeal displayed in the  effort to find a solution. The  first two clays of the present week  found conference and colloquy  the order of the clay. But no  good came of it. The works remained silent and the men kept  moving away. The country at  large was paying the penalty.  If it were necessary to raise the  price of fuel in order to meet tbe  raise asked for iu the rate of  wages, industries would have  gladly stood it, rather than shut  down. But such a solution would  not suit coal mining methods.  Paralysis of a country appears  preferable to sacrifice of pride.  During Tuesday's conference  none of those who had gone from  Boards of Trade to use their influence in the crisis were admitted. Even newspaper men were  excluded. Liudsley seemed the  bugbear of both operators and  miners, if reports are to be believed and his sou was present to  assist him.  During Wednesday and Thursday conferences were continued  and at times it looked as if a  settlement would be reached before the Board of Conciliation  "���et together.

COAL TROUBLE CURE  The    constant   recurrence   of  trouble in the coal "iiH'ds-iovoly^  ing the welfare of the supporting industries of the entire interior should invite the attention  of the Dominion government to  the opening of its coal reserves  on the Crow's Nest Pass. It was  hoped that the government reserve of 50,000 acres of coal land  in the heart of the coal country  would act as a safety valve to the  rapacity of the coal barons. But  it has not so proved. The operators do not appear to realize  their relation to the public upon  whom they depend for a: market.  Instead of trying to anticipate  trouble some of them at least appear to invite it, even provoke it.  When the recent meeting in  Calgary resulted in uo adjustment of the pending trouble, and  the men returned to work for  thirty days aud invoked the  government to apply its new can-  ciliation measure it was believed  that the friction would be removed and the country's industries saved from paralysis. But it  appears that the management of  the Crow's Nest did not want any  so peacable a situation and forthwith posted notices intimating  that wages were to be reduced  instead of increased. This of  course acted as an irritant to the  men who without declaring a  strike walked out. The miners  elsewhere followed the example  and fuel supplies for railways,  miners and smelters immediately  ceased.  The     company     managemnet  claims it did this because* the men  had overlooked some preliminaries iu asking the department of  labor to apply its machinery.  And yet capital is constantly  talking of the ignorance and  brutality of labor. Did labor  ever show any greater ignorance  and brutality than this ?  We think the time has fully  come for the government to get  action on its coal properties. If  they were opened up aud coal  sold at a small, advance above  cost the mine operators would be  taught a wholesome lesson and  the country would be benefited.  The'great mining industries now  depending on the whim of some  over-greedy capitalists or uuder-  capablemanager would be able to  make plans ahead knowing that  fuel supply was assured.  Southeastern British Columbia's wealth can never be developed while the fuel supply re-  maius as now. It is too precarious.- The present status of the  metalliferous mining industry is  imperilled and the well-being of  thousands of workmen placed in  jeopardy by the greed of stockholders in the coal mines aud the  incapacity of the men sent from  their offices in Toronto to manage  a concern vital to the country's  weal. Will the government take  cognizance of the gravity of the  case and act as the guardian  of the peoples rights ?  Without questioning the value  The poor are not without their  compensations. While the palaces of the wealthy suffered in  the recent earthquake in Mexico,  the adobe homes of the poor were  unharmed.  Billions of tons of coal owned  by the people of Canada, in the  name of its government in the  Crow's Nest, r Why not let the  people dig it out, and sell it to  the people, for the people's benefit. _____ '���-"���-���  Buster Brown hit the nail on  the head when in philosophical  vein he says : "Too few people  do their own thinking. They let  the doctor, the church and the  newspaper tell them what to  believe.   Wc regret that the Midway  Star sees-lit to censure Greenwood  for deciding to have a'celebration  on May 24th aud 25th next.  Greenwood has been a good patron of Midway celebrations for  years and has not entered the  field itself and doubting that  Midway would care to undertake  a celebration this year decided to  have one at home. We trust our  Midway friends will not heed the  Star's intimation to remain at  home on the 24th but will return  some of the calls Greenwood has  been making on her for years  past.    President Woodrow Wilson of  Princeton is reported to have declared that the tobacco chewing  habit made statesman. We have  always supposed that the habit  made men reflective because  obliged to use their mouths so  much for other purposes they  could not overwork them for talking, But as to making statesmen of, them we are in doubt.  We know ward politicians that  can hit a crack accurately ten  feet away, but then we know  others that can fresco a floor for  several feet around a cuspidore  and never hit the hole. No we  are not conversant enough ' with  our statesmen's habits to size this  uew proposition up correctly but  all the same we doubt it.  If our- readers could spend one  morning loolcing through the letters  received from all over Canada by the  Zam-Buk Co., it would bring- home to  them with irrisistable foixe the healing-,  virtues of this great household balm.  Old women, young* women, wives,  mothers, and aven young girls have  something to say about how Zam-Buk  did this or that good office in their  home. Many of these writers give  permission'to.make extracts from their  grateful testimony. From these the  following were taken at random:  "I was troubled for some weeks with  salt rheum in hands aud arms arid was  using a salve which did uie little good.  On* receiving a sudply'o'f Zam-Buk I  applied it, and it really seemed to act  like magic! The itching and burning  ceased, aud jn a few days the skin was  cleared and healthy." So writes Miss  A.

Longboat covered the distance in 2  hours 24 minutes 20 4-5 seconds, this  being 5 minutes 2 4 5 seconds faster  than the previous record, which was  established in 1901 by J. J.

Hays, St. Bartholomew's club  abuse*,  to the detriment   of  minority  stockholders.  The unlimited assessment feature,  which is for emergency only, is desirable in any company, whether mining  or otherwise. As a life-boat on board  the steamer may be the means of saving passengers, or the vested power to  negotiate a loan of a few thousand  dollars may save from failure a man-  facturing or commercial enterprise, so  should the power to levy a limited assessment save a mining company at  some possible point in its career, un-  forseen by the original promotors. A  limited assessment feature provides  protection to the interests of all stockholders, with deteriment to none.  In its-last analysis the success of any  mining company largely, depends on  the management, in either condition.  It would seem to be a more reasonable  theory for incorporators to provide  some elasticity for the future legitimate operations of a company.  It is no proof either way that because a stock is assessable it is sure  eventually to make a paying mine,  (though the chances are in its favor),  nor because a stock is non-assessable  that the mine will fail. There are  more successes- among mining companies which have levied assessments  when needed, than among companies  in which this has been impossible. So  well is this fact recognized in the older  mining districts, that some of the  states have passed laws prohibiting  the forming of mining companies with  the non-assessable feature, hence more  divideud payers have been opened up  than ever before.  Summing up, it would seem to be an  evidence of foresight and good management, for mining companies to provide themselves with the limited assessment feature when incorporating  (say for 10 to 30 per cent of par), not  with the idea of using it, simply as an  emergency clause, just as fire insurance is to the merchant. As such it  would be of benefit to all should the  occasion ever arise.

Day is of Butte, contributes the following to the Mining  World :  In even a limited discussion of this  subject, we should endeavor to Iree our  McGill university has had two fires  recently, both of unknown origin.  The damage is estimated at half a  million dollars.  It is reported that the Great Northern Railway is to build an S00 foot  wharf on the Fraser River at Westminister and to make that place the  home port for a fleet of Alaska steam-  ersr   The first train from Edmonton over.f  the C. N. R. in twelve days pulled into  Winnipeg recently.    The  passengers  tell many tales of trying experiences  and often privations.  J. Chesholm, mayor of Battleford,  who left there on a special train some  time ago to undergo an operation for  appendicitis at \vinnipeg, but whose  train was stalled, necessitating the  operation tn a drug store at Warman  village, succumbed to the effects.  The New Brunswick Legislature has  placed itself on record as being in  favor of having the Canadian ensign  float over the school houses of the provinces during the school hours. The  Board of Education was recommended  to take the matter up with the secretaries of school boards and was empowered to appropriate a reasonable  sum to assist in purchasing flags in  cases where school boards are not  willing to bear the whole cost.  minds from prejudice, and get down to  the business aspect of ihe matter, with  a view of arriving at correct conclusions. ��  We know that the term "non-assessable'' sounds good to many j-eople accustomed to regard it as a highly desirable feature of mining stock, and  its popularity has been abused occasionally by unworthy mining companies, which use it as "bait" for their  stoclfi-selling operations. It is also  being used by meritorious companies.  Statistics show that the non-assessable  feature is responsible for tlie closing  down and failure of more mines and  companies than all other causes combined; but who ever heard of a genuine  "wild-cat" starting out deliberately  with assessable stock? h  It often happens hi case ot a worthy  "prospect," that stock has been sold  too cheap to complete dcve!opment to  the dividend stage. Ore may have  been found, but the treasury depleted  by the operations necessary to reach  that point; a few paltry assessments  might have enabled the progress to be  made, in a very short while, to where  dividends would be easily possible.  When a company has. been incorporated as non-assessablei and the ^stock  is sold as such, it is impossible, in  practice, afterwards to obtain -the  necessary unanimous cousent of stockholders to a reorganization on an assessable basis, even to protect their  original investment.  Ordinarily the mine is then closed  down, and all investors are compelled  to suffer pecuniary loss. On the other  hand, where the power to assess is unlimited amount at any aud all times is  vested in a company, it is not always  just to the small stockholder, who is  compelled to pay his share without  having voice in the expenditure of the  money. This may be said to constitute  a temptation whereby unlimited power  in some cases, might  be   subject   to  BRITISH COLUMBIA  In his recent assay ou the subject "Is  British Columbia as rich potentially as  the other Provinces of the Dominion"  Ex-governor Mackintosh presents an  admirable argument. One list of  figures given struck,us very forcibly,  and which we subjoin :  "Many may be inclined to question  the correctness of the above statement.  If so, the most sceptical would be convinced by a careful examination of the  tabulated statements and. diagrams,  contained in the last census. These  figures prove beyond cavil, for notwithstanding the fact that British Columbia has been unjustly treated, and  at times unfairly handicapped, her  population, per capita, is richer than  those of, the other provinces. Here is  the proof:  (1)  Value of Land and Houses, per  Occupan,t.

Postmaster-General Lemieux will likely give the details of the agreement to  parliament and the country at once.  The decision reached at the congress  in Rome to carry letters of one- ounce  instead of half an ounce for two cents  from Canada to Britain will take effect  at once instead of in October as previously arranged.  The question of establishing uninterrupted communication between  Prince Edward Island and the mainland by means of a tunnel under Northumberland Straits has been a fruitful  topic of discussion during the present  session of Parliament. Some light  is thrown on the subject by a report  made to the Department of Marine last  year by Mr.' Eugene D. Lafleur, chief  engineer of the Department of Public  Works, and Mr. A. St. Laurent, assistant engineer. According to their report, based principally on surveys and  soundings made at the request of the  Government in 1892 by Sir Douglas  Fox and Mr. A. W. Palmer of the Institute of Civil Engineers, the estimated cost of, the proposed tunnel is SIS,-  045,000- It is admitted, however, that  this is but an approximate estimate.  Other estimates of cost have placed  the amount required to construct the  tunnel at anywhere between nine million and forty millions. The- tunnel  proposed in the survey of 1892 would  be seven and a half miles long and  would reach a depth of 150 feet below  the water level. If the funds were  available Messrs. Lafleur and St.  Laurent say the construction of the  tunnel is feasible, there being no insurmountable engineering difficulties  to overcome.  Though Port Arthur is expecting  much from its silver and copper mines,  it expects more from the opening of  the enormous beds of iron ores adjacent to the town.

The plot  calls for each visitor to put in an  envelope an admission price one cent  for each year of his age. The scheme  works well for benevolent ladies to  raise the limit and obscure their real  age b3' putting a dollar in.the fund.  A ccuiple of years ago the Dominion  parliament- voted an appropriation of  $15,000 to be used for the purpose of  building an electric furnace and ascertaining wheteer such ores as magnetic  and ores containing high sulphur  cetild be 'successfully, treated in the  electric furnace. These experiments  were conducted at Sault Ste. Marie,  and simply confirmed the'report of the  Haanel commission to Europe.' N.  Thompson of Vancouver, being greatly  impressed with the process, went to  England a year ago and succeeded iu  interesting English capital to establish  au experimental electric plant at Bow,  near London. The success at La Praz  and Sault Ste, Marie have been repeated at Bow, and now a company has  been orgauized to treat the waste ores  of copper and tin from the mines of  Cornwall by this process, which will  yield a most profitable return. Mr.  Thompson is anxious to establish au  electric smelting plant in British Columbia, and R. Turnbull, the Scotch  engineer who came out with Dr. He-  rault to conduct the experiments at  the Soo eighteen months ago, and who  has had an extensive experience in  connection with smelting, is prepared  to erect a plant at Welland, Ont., if  the government will grant a special  bounty covering a term of years.���Inland Sentinal.

It's a great satisfaction to buy where  one has only the gratification of his  taste to think of, knowing that quality  will be right.  If your work is not appreciated you  have not failed.
