I   RENDELL & CO.   1  ^itiuuiajiUtiiiiiiuuiHiiMiiuiiaiiiiuiuiiiiiJiiiiaituuiiiK  An important strike was made during the week on the Prince Henry, a  claim in the high-grade belt on the  north side of the Plioenix wagon road,  directly opposite the E. P. U. tramway. At a depth of 15 feet a vein of  high grade ore was encountered about  four inches wide, which has every sign  of permanency and which has since  considerably increased in width. The  The ore is of the same character as  that contained in the majority of the  mines in the belt, and carries high  values in both gold and silver. The  strike is of much importance, showing  as it does the continuity of the veins  and the almost absolute assurance.of  rich mineral in all the claims on the  hill7"T^TimTs^teffds'tB"Drrs^anSiF  and his associates in the bond on the  property its most hearty congratulations.  ' The shaft is being sunk at an angle  of roughly 60 degrees*' dip to the east.  A porphyry dyke cuts the vein at the  south of the shaft, and the ore body  shows up remarkably strong in the  north side, in which direction the drift  will most probably be run as soon as  sufficient depth has been attained.  Actual work for ten days only had  been done when the ore was struck.  Engineer Jeffry is overseeing the de-  development work  The Winnipeg Free Press is publishing extracts from their paper "Twenty  years ago" and among other items the  other day inserted this ad: Three  hundred volunteers are wanted for  active service in. the Northwest. Parties wishing to join Col. Thomas  Scott's battalion may apply to the  undersigned today at the Donaldson  Block, 341* Main street. Signed Stewart  Mulvey, D. H. McMillan, John McBeth. '  This number is at present occupied  by the Atlas Assurance Co., and the  officials were much puzzled when man  after man came in during the day in  reply to the ad and asked to be taken  on the battalion. The mystery remained unsolved until one of the staff  happened to read the -"Twenty years  ago" column and there saw the ad.  W. G. Gaunce, who has up to dale  sent the correspondence from here appearing in the Spokesman-Review and  the Nelson Daily News, has most  courteously retired from both positions  in favor of Arthur Wheeler, so that  there may not be any clashing in reports sent out from this camp. Will  persons having news items worth sending out kindly note the change and let  Mr. Wheeler know of such at this office.  Development   Work   Now  Being Done.  LARGE VEIN OF GOOD ORE  Shaft Down 115 Feet���Electric Power  Will Be Used.  Mr. and Mrs. Frederic Keffer, Mr.  Ellis I/Ovejoy and a Times reporter  visited the Emma mine, one of the  properties owned by the B. C. Copper  Co.; one day last week. Mr. Lovejoy  is a mining engineer from Columbus,  Ohio, and had. been in the Loomis  country, state of Washington, inspecting some properties in that section;  on his way through he spent some  time in this camp and looked into the  methods adopted by the companies  operating the immense low-grade copper lodes, particularly the Mother Lode.  When told last summer, by a lady  visitor to his home, of the system foi-  lowed, Mr, LovejoY was very sceptical,  but he left thoroughly convinced that  that he had been correctly informed.  Such visits are calculated to do this  country an immense amount of good,  as- reports from experienced mining  men are better advertising than can  be secured in any other .way. The late  visit of/M. M. Johnson, M. E., who  was here in February last to report to  the Guggenheim Exploration syndicate on the Boundary mines, more  particularly those operated by the  Montreal and Boston Consolidated,  has caused comment from all the  leading papers on the continent and  will doubtless be, the means of direct-  ingthe -attention" of "tlieimining-woH'd  more than ever to this section of the  province.  The Emma is situate on the Eholt-  Phoenix branch of the C. P. R., and  on the Great Northern branch to  Phoenix. In fact both branches go  through the property, as does also the  C. P. R. spur to the B C mine. The  property was secured-by the B. C.  Copper Co. on account of the particularly fine fluxing quality of the ore,  which carries a large excess of iron  over silica, and is therefore of great1  value to smelters treating such ores as  are found in Rossland, and treated at  Nelson, Trail and Northport. It occasionally . happens that the pre is'  needed by the Greenwood smelter when  the Mother Lode ore io more than ordinarily refractory.  The vein on the Emma is about  thirty-five feet wide and the walls are  very_ distinctly ^defined. J Up._to date  the property has been worked entirely  from the surface by glory-holing, but  a dyke having been encountered right  across the vein, the company is now  sinking a shaft in the dyke at an angle  of 60 degrees towards the ore body,  with the idea of drifting under the  vein and hereafter taking all the ore  up.the shaft. At the time of going to  press the depth attained is about 115  feet and the ore body had not yet  been struck, although there was every  indication of its proximity, and some  ore was being sent up from the bottom.  From plans made it is not expected  that the ore body will be encountered  until the shaft has been sunk to 130  feet depth. The probabilities are that  by the end of next week the shaft will  be down to the required depth and that  the drifting on the vein will be started.  Two'shifts of men are working and  the power is obtained from the air  compressor on the Oro Donoro. The  The shaft is single-compartment, with  man-hole, and is a distinct credit to  the superintendent, Mr. Morrison. It  is timbered throughout and struck the  writer as being a particularly fine  piece of work.  Power for the new work will be obtained from the new line promised by  the Kootenay Power Co.  WILL BUILD ROAD  Great Northern Will Build  This Summer.  MAIN LINE TO SIMILKAMEEN  Another Rich Section Becomes Tributary to U- S, Business Men-  The Very Best Remedy for   Bo we  Troubles���No Family Can Afford  To Be Without It.  "I regard Chamberlain's Choltc,  Cholera and Diahrrhoea-Remedy as one  of the very best remedies for bowel  troubles," says Mr. J. W, Han Ion,  editor of the Despatch, Ocilla,Georgia.  "I make this statement after having  used the medicine in my family for  several years. I am never without it."  No family can afford to be without a  bottle of this remedy in the house. It  is certain to be needed sooner or  later.    For sale by All Druggists.  In the latest number of the Hedley  Gazette an article appears .from which  it is gathered that the Great Northern  Railway company has decided to build  into the Similkameen from a point on  their main line near Wenatchee.  While no one can reasonably blame  the Great Northern it is a deathblow,  if true, to this section. It was hoped  by almost all that the company would  build -from Midway west and give  Greenwood connection. Such it now  appears is not the intention. The following is the conclusion of the article  in question: . ;  "The consensus of opinion among  those .who claim to be 'in the know' is  that the road,is coming in from Wenatchee and the section from Midway  to the lower end of the Similkameen is  abandoned for the present at least.  "How British Columbians- in the  Boundary and the Coast will like this  remains to be seen. To them it may  seem death to Canadian interests to  have an American railway, borjng into  the heart of British Columbia's plum  pie, but to the trail tramper-of the  Similkameen  'Death is King and Vivat Rex,  Tread a measure on the stones.'  "There are some who claim that Pat  "Welch now has the contract to build  from- Loomis--to. Princeton, and that  this portion is to be graded first, the  supplies for same to be toted in.  "What the C.P.R. Will do in the  matter nobody knows, and the Similkameen has quit caring. If Van-  couverites don't like the present outlook of the Great Northern running in  from Wenatchee and quitting this side  of Hope mountain instead of building  from Midway and going on to the  coast they can have it out with their  coast representatives at Ottawa. If  these men had supported V. V. & E.  legislation at Ottawa in 1894, or even  in the early part of the present session work would have probably been  undertaken."  If anything further were required to  show the u+ter folly of the government's do-nothing policy, surely it is  abundantly evident from the foregoing. Whereas Similkameen might  have been opened to business men here  and"frbni^thei=cSast^fr  Bride introduced any -kind of a programme, which he was assured again  and again by J. A. Macdonald, the  opposition leader, would receive, the  support of members on the opposition  benches, this wonderfully rich section  of country would be opened for busin-  ness from B. C. points. As it is now  the Americans get the trade.  A most amusing dispatch from the  Victoria correspondent of the Nelson  Daily Tribune appeared in a recent  issue of that paper. The item wa**  headed "Is up against it. McBride's  railway policy turned down. Can't  muster majority. Moribund government may ask for a dissolution, and  make appeal to people." The dispatch  in full follows :  Everything in the way of railway  legislation has been given a year's  hoist, as the members of the government cannot agree on a policy. If  there is any railway construction this  summer, it will be without financial  aid from the province. The Joy-Mc-  Bride government no longer controls a  majority of the house on any railway  policy it can bring down, and the lieutenant-governor's speech from the  throne amounts to no more than so  much dish water.  It is rumored that McBride will ask  tor a|dissolution,immediately the house  adjourns, and go to the country on a  railway policy framed in the interest  of the Grand Trunk Pacific and connecting lines, like John Hendry's projected road from North Vancouver to  Fort George. In order to carry Victoria and the Island, the Grand Trunk  Pacific will purchase the Esquimalt &.  Nanaimo and its land grant.  P.

Conservatives in this district are,  almost to a man, bitterly outspoken regarding the failure of  the famous quartette, Fraser  (Grand Forks), Shatford (Similkameen), Macgowan, Vancouver, and Grant of Comox, to  stand by their pre-election pledges  and obtain railway legislation  even at the expense of the defeat  of the McBride government.  Coast opposition papers all tell of  their "open revolt" on Saturday  last and their subsequent "falling  into line" and acquiescence in the  now famous government railway  policy. The Colonist's flop is a  very high tribute to the consta.it  stand taken by the brilliant  leader of the opposition, Mr. J.  A. Macdonald. The article referred to follows:  "It is the general expectation that  with today's silting, the 1905 session of  the Provincial Legislature will terminate with an unusual suddenness, and  with results and accomplishments in  the form of legislation added to the  statute book that will not by any  means approximate the expectations of  the country at the opening of Parliament. It had been hoped that a clean-  cut and progressive policy would be  enunciated and developed, the natural  working out of which would be a stimulus given to industry in its varied  branches, the encouragement of popu  lation, and an impetus to legitimate  provincial growth. With all the world  looking to Western Canada, the occasion seemed ripe for accomplishments.  But the dying clays of the session find  few of the roseate hopes destined to  realization. The promised railway  policy has ended in barren debating,  behind the closed doors of the caucus,  of the various proposals advanced by  those companies which sought co-operation of the government in the carrying out of their construction projects.  The Assessment Acl has, it is true,  been amended in a measure to correct  some of the manifest injustices demonstrated iri its working during the last  recess; and the finance minister has  been able to show an economical conduct of the general routine of business  of the province, and in his estimates to  indicate a consistent disposition on the  part of the administration to curtail  expenditure in every possible manner.  This, however, does uot meet the demands of a province aiming to be progressive, and whose natural resources  and opportunities, with wise legislative  assistance, assuredly destine it for  greatness. Instead of assisting natural  progress born of individual enterprise,  the legislation added to the statute  book during the present session has,  indeed, a recognized tendency in a  contrary direction, as for examp'e in  the bill of the member for Nanaimo  city further limiting the employment  of underground workers in the colleries  out of which it is greatly feared there  must come, suspension on this Island  of one of its most important industries.  In consenting i to the passage of this  measure, as in reluctance to present a  straight-cut railway programme, the  government of the day. will be condemned by many of independent minds  in politics for fatal devotion to the  shibboleth of expediency. It were infinitely better, these critics will contend, to go down to defeat upon the  issue of a tangible policy for the betterment of provincial conditions, than  to live by grace of acquiescence in ill-  considered and even distinctly harmful  and dangerous laws. The session ends  with the government of Hon. Mr. McBride still in the saddle, but its results  have weakened instead of strengthening the ministry in the eyes of the  people. The electorate will recognize  and accentuate the undeniable .fact  that it is highly dangerous for any  government to seek to carry on with so  variable and insufficient a majority as  to make recourse to the support of- a  party, divergent from its own1,; a first  necessity of existence in power. Hon.  Mr. McBride and his ministry it appears to man j- would have better proven  their recognition of their duties to  British Columbia1 had they set their  political course and held to it even in  ..the face of defeat through devotion to  a decisive and consistent Conservative  policy recognizing and based upon the  conditions and necessities of the province as it is today."

OF THE DIRECTORS  OF THE  BANE OF BRITISH NORTH AMERICA  Presented to   the Proprietors at their Sixty-Ninth  Yearly General fleeting.  ���The annual general meeting of the II. am myself responsible for urging  proprietors of the Bank of British | upon my colleagues the necessity of a  North America was held on Tuesday,  March 7th, at the office of the corporation. No. 5 Gracechurch ��� Street,  tonddn, Mr. E. A. Hoare, presiding.  The'Secretary (Mr. A. G.'Wallls)  haivlng read the notice and the auditors' report,  The Chairman said: Before making  any reference to the balance-sheet  Which is in your hands to-day, I'must j  say a few words respecting one para- I  graph in the report: Issued with the;  balance-sheet of��� June':30th last. We,  then said:���"The sum of ��4,180 has *  been "set aside out .of.-the profits of the '  half-year to meet the depreciation in !  the bank's investment in Dominion of j  Canada bonds, which , will hereafter ,  stand In the books, at 97." Having,  been obliged in December, 1903, to set;  aside out of profits the sum of ��9,000,  to provide for depreciation in our Con- j  sols, we felt that it was rather hard I  that this further appropriation in re-|  spect of our Canada, bonds should be j  necessary, but you no doubt under-!  stood perfectly weli:that it was ren-j  dered necessary by market fluctuations  alone, and that, as the quotations on  the'Stock Exchange Jhad fallen, it was  necessary fori us to write . down our  investment to that .level, although we,  are .well aware ��� that: on its merits a  Dominion of Gaiindni bond is worth  more to-day than ever.it has been before: . It is satisfactory to be able to'  add'that a recovery in values has already taken place, and that our investment, is to-day again' worth par. I  will\now pass on, and;ma,ke some observations on the balance-sheet to De-'  pioper banking house in that city, I  am going to add that it has been well  spent. The site, which we purchased  lit; October, 1902, la one of the best in  the business part of the city, and it is  worth a great deal more to-day than  ic was then. The building which we  have erected upon it is not only well  adapted to all our banking requirements, but Is also an ornament to the  city, which is rapidly increasing in  importance, population and wealth, and  if we had been iniluenced clTielly by  motives of economy in this matter we  should, have made a great mistake. At  Toronto we have carried out extensive  internal alterations, whereby we not  only secure first-class banking accommodation, out also earn a considerable  rental. At Ottawa our building was  right enough, but the situation was  and  it  permanent, and a return to greater ac-.  tivity will certainly be seen, although  I am not going to venture to predict  the date. In the meantime, we consider  that it is eminently satisfactory under  such circumstances to see a substantial increase of �� 8,000 in the total  profits of the year, compared with those  of 1903.  INDrSTRIAL CONDITIONS. *  In general business, the year 1904  was not without its vicissitudes. The  winter 1903-4 was of exceptional severity, so that traffic by road and railway was only carried on under great  difficulties and expense. This interfered with the shipment of produce  and the distribution of merchandise,  and also had a serious effect upon  agriculture in Eastern Canada. The  lumber industry did not enjoy so much  prosperity as during recent years,  chiefly owing to a diminished demand  from the United Kingdom, which was  only partly compensated for by the  steady consumption of the United  States. The dairying industry, which  is of such growing importance in the  East realized considerably less money  for the producers than in 1903, and had  It not been for the good harvest in the  West, we should probably have seen a  partial set-back in the growing prosperity of the Dominion.  THE WHEAT CROP.  .Naturally, the progress of the crops  in Manitoba and the Northwest Territories was watched by all in Canada  and in the United Kingdom with anxiety, for   the   success   -or otherwise of  j the harvest, in that great country is no  j longer  a question  of merely local  in-  wvong, and it was necessary to'make j i^^*" f*^"^^8^,the c��untry  a change or to be foreotten so we!,the cr��Ps were damaged by rust, and  madeth! cteng�� and ^If w^ the^ex'j ^^"^^^^ *'�� "J* V^ ��l  heaviest item. : Then we had to build ^IL ti wi *1f the* h��P^ ?f  a manager's residence at Winnipeg, j"',,�� ^h^ V.^w ',e�� th-em t0 al?t,CI'"  where- the   demand   for   houses   is   so !

If  you   will  come and look at a  print of  that photograph after the meeting you  wiil  thoroughly appreciate that  it was  net a leaning   to   extravagance   which  led   us   to   purchase   a   modest   brick  building,  where we might conduct out-  business In. safety.     The bank at Victoria has been  practically rebuilt, and,  although  I' have  ceitjber 31st, 1904.     D<3Posits,and cur--j JT,""*"  l "^ not seen. it.--I believe  .', rent accounts, compared  with  Decern-���  ��.,'��!���hP  berl903,  show an increase '.of  ��311.000; ibulul01  77 per cent, of this increase Is  in  the!  sayings   bank   department,    which    is "i  daily growing In favorin Canada.  Bills payable and other 'liabilities show  a decrease of ��620.000. This decrease  consists almost entirely in the bills  payable, which are ��550,000 less .than-  at..this time last year. This reduction  doe's, not signify any diminution of-the  bank's business gentirally, but it Is I'���>',.*>  reflection of a long period of inactivity  in New York, to which I shall;have  to; refer again wh^n I'speak of our  profits. Notes in circulation show, an  increase of �� 32,000'compare*.! with this  time -last year. But here I must e*<  plain that the figures .nt December  do-riot represent In this or in any ye lithe-highest point of pur circulation.  It is" in the months of October and No-,  vetriher, when the harvest is beim?  moyed, that the circulation reaches its  maximum, and by..December 3ist the  ebbrtide has. begun arid made some  : progress.--,  ,.*: .'.;:    '-,".''���,  ���^DITION TO RESERVE FUNDi :A  -By an addition'of ��204)00 to our reserve fund J:he total is raised to ��420.-  000: I would remind you' that the  whole .of this sum has been saved but  of ;'proflts, while the .reserves of marfv  of our friendly rivals have been largely  augmented!,by, theipreroiurhs. obtaine'l  from the issue of new capital. On the  other ,side of the account, cash and  specie; are ��67,000 iess than this lime  lastvyear ; but-cash at; call and short  notice if ��125,000 larger, so that the  tqtal under these, two headings shows  an increase of ��57,000. The cash and  specie.; is 37 per cent, of our., immediate  -liabilities, while the two items together amount to 35 per cent, of our  total liabilities to the public. Investments, ,so far as regards pur British  G��vernment stocks, show' no change,  while our Dominion of Canada bonds.  nS;already explained/now gtand at 97  Instead of :100: ���'* Other securities,' at  '��133,000. show a decrease of ��14,000.  In Canada, as in the United Kingdom,  the values, of'all high-class securities  .continued low during the half-year,  *-but=a-strict-t=revaluatiOn-=of-=these-='se^  ciiritiesr shows that they stand in our  books at less thanactual values.- Bills  receivable, loans on security and.other  accounts show a decrease of ��323.000  compared with this time last year;  but I have nothing special to say respecting these figures, which arei not  due to any other cause ��� than the ordinary fluctuations cf our business.  NEW BANK PREMISES.  Bank premises show an increase of  �� 21,000 during the year. Our actual  expenditure has been ��31,000, but, as  you have seen, we have taken from the  profits of the half-year the sum of  ��10,000 in reduction of this account.  At December 31st, 1901. our premises  .account, stood ��120.000; so that in  these three years we have spent ��70,-  000. Had Ir *>een possible, we should  gladly have avoided this large Increase  in the account, but I have no hesitation in saying that we had no choice  if we were- to retain our position in  Canada.�� The bulk of the money has  be��n spent In Winnipeg, and aUthough  a thoroughly modernized and  e building. There has been  other expenditure ; at other branches,  but nothing of .-importance.;- "I*, have  spoken at some length on this point.  s> that .you may thorbuThly under-'*  stand our- ..reasons tor the present  transfer; of ��10.000. and for further  transfers which will have to be made  i-v* the future���not because there" is nnt  ample value, and more ��� than . anmle  .value, in property, but because we do  not wish to see this account remaining  fib, so high a' point.  :;  /PROFITS FOR YEAR   ��96,000.  - -Finally,    I   may : point oin that   ou*--  profits  this   ye-     after'.making  ample;  31 st ' provision   for   all   accounts   which   we  i consider   to   be   in   the.-least doubtful  amount to ��96,000. exclusive of those  sums which you so"'''gen'ero"Slv allow  as to npiiropriato; for the benefit of the  staff, compare:! with ;�� 88.000 in 1903.

That neei rot trouble you at  ail.   for-  these   conditions   will   not   be  bushels; while the inferiority in quality  was more than made up,by' the higher  price obtained, and it Is estimated that  the wheat alone will realize forty million dollars. ��� The Influx of settlers  consequently continues, many still com-  ing'-'intb the country from across the  boundary, and bringing with them not  only rao'tal but valuable experience.  New lands are being constantly taken  up, while farmers already on the  ground have been adding to their  holdings; This is. perhaps a weak spot  at the present time, for, encouraged  by the success of past seasons, and  seeing the price of land steadily ad-  v-ncing in value, no doubt many have  been tempted to make larger purchases  than their- capital justifies. That tlie  price cf land should advance under the  'influence'of a constant stream of set-'  tiers is only natural: but there lsi-r>a-  son tn fear that the speculator h-'K also  contributed to this movement, "nd this  h much to be regreltei. for sneciila-  'ion of that sort actually retards the  ���-irogress of the .country. It is also  roticeahle that the number of commercial failures in Manitoba and the  Northwest Territories has increased  although the total of such liabilities  has not increased in like proportion.  Tt is difficult for us who remain at  home, or perhaps pay an occasional  '���������isit ti'the'West to realize thp amount  of s��!f-restraint that is necessary in  tbcre western communities, if business  I- Ir '���'e kept on a safe basis, the po-  tenti-ilities of- the country are so immense; the genuine opportunities for  extension are so .frequent, and the  very climate is so-conducive to a san-  "'���ine temperament. But we are con-  ���'���incei that the true development of  the country in the future is dependent  upon the prudence of those who have  the power of granting or witholding  .credit', nnd we fully recognize our own  share of this responsibility.  THE U. S. "DRAWBACK." l;  No reference to the Northwest would  b? complete without some mention of  the new departure by the Government  of the United States, with reference  to    the    importation    of    wheat    from  Canada. Hitherto wheat has beer, subject to a duty of 25 per cent. -There  has been no alteration in the law, but  there is in existence a law by which  the United States Treasury may permit a "drawback" of 99 per cent, of  the duty paid on raw materials used  in manufacturing articles intended for  export only. In future, wheat is to  b-3 included amongst such raw materials. I do not intend to wander on  to the debatable ground of fiscal questions, but. this action by the United  States Treasury may have effects not  at present contemplated. To the wheat  grower in the West it must surely be  beneficial, inasmuch as he will find  a new market open to him where the  price of his produce is, as a rule,  higher that that to which he has been  accustomed. Those who may wish to  pursue this interesting subject further  should refer to the Commercial supplement of the Times of February 6 th  and 20th, or to . the Canadian Gazette  of February 9th. Since the harvest  the weather has been unusually favorable for farming operations, and I have  seen it stated that the land already  under plough for next season Is 500,000  acres in excess of that at this time  last year, and that a reasonable estimate of the land under wheat in 1905  is iy> million acres.  . MINING INDUSTRIES.  Passing on westwards, the mining  industries of British Columbia have  shown considerable activity during  1904, and a rough estimate compiled  by the . Provincial Government values  the mineral output at $19,775,000. This  shows an increase of more than $2,-  000,000 over the production of 1902 and  1903, but just falls short of 1901, when  the output  reached  $20,000,000.   :���       -  This * increased production has not,  however, been accompanied by any  better results fcr the shareholders in  either the Canadian companies or  those established in the United Kingdom, arid in all alike, profits, where  existing at all, have been meagre in  the extreme. Efforts are now being  imade'by influential persons in Canada  I and the United .Kingdom, representing  some of the principal companies in  tb-i Rossland Camp, to bring about an  amalgamation of interests, and should  these efforts, meet with success there  should lie brighter days ere long. In  the Yukon, on the other hand, the  output of gold showed further diminution, barely reaching $10,00.0,000 in  1904, compared with : $11,000,000 in the  preceding year. .The population of  Dawson is also, considerably less than  it was a year ago ; but this is by no  means ' surprising,/for in pla.cer min-:  in?- camps as the auriferous ground  is worked out the miners move on to!  more attractive fields of labor: and  s.'i it has been in this case, the exodus  to the goldfields of Tanana and Fairbanks having been on a large scale.-  Apart from fresh discoveries that may  be made, either of alluvial or quartz,  the future of the camp appears to depend chiefly upon an, adequate water  supply, and I.understand that efforts  are being made towards the attainment of this object. Whatever may  be the output foi- the future, it is interesting to look back on the results  of the camp, since it first came prominently "into notice seven years ago,;  tye during this period the value of gold  recovered has certainly not been less  than '& 20,000,000. These figures must  surely entitle it to rank amongst the  wealthiest placer mining camps in the-'  world. Oh the Pacific Coast the canning* Industry met with poor -results,  the catch being small. Last autumn  our general manager visited England  hy invitation of the court, as there  were matters which w'.e desired to. discuss with him personally. His visit  was most valuable: we availed ourselves of 1 the opportunltj' of frequent  consultations with him, which we trust  'may-*-be..* productive of good; in the  future.  A vote of thanks to the Directors,  General Manager and Staff was unanimously passed.

Harry Shallenberger has engaged  men to do some development work on  the D. A. claim.  At the last federal elections the total  number of votes cast is officially declared to be. 1,030,186. This includes  the Yukon. The vote in the previous  general election in 1900 was 952,496.  The owner of the Bonnie Belle,  situate on the road to the Mother Lode  mine, reports having struck three feet  of very fine ore on his claim. On the  Highland Queen, also situate on the  West side, good ore has been found.  W. T. Hunter and associates in the  Seattle bond have decided to install a  boiler and use a steam drill in the development work. The machinery was  hauled from Greenwood on Thursday  by two four horse teams provided by  C.  J. McArthur.  The Odd Fellows of Boundary Valley Lodge will attend the evening service at the English church'April 30th,  leaving the hall at 6:45 in regalia, accompanied by the Greenwood band.  It is, hoped all members of the order in  the district will be present.  Work on the tunnel of the Strathmore, mine is being steadily, prose-  puted. The tunnel is now 245 feet and  it is estimated that '40 feet more work  isrequired before the first ore body  will be struck at an approximate  depth of 175 feet. Two shifts are  working, and good progress is being  made daily in spite of the hardness of  the rock through which the tunnel is  being driven. When it is finished the  Strathmore will be in a position to  ship ore.  An important deal in mining property was completed on Saturday last  by Gaunce & Wickwire, mining brokers  of this city. The property referred to  is the Bank of England, a claim in  Phoenix^ camp, situate between the  Monarch; on which the Granby company have started extensive surface  work, r.nd the Rawbide, which, as  stated! elsewhere in. this issue, the  Montreal and Boston intend to thoroughly develop. The deal is a cash  purchase option, $10,000 payable on  1st July next. The purchase was made  in the name of W. S. Macey, but it is  reported that the Granby company are  the; power behind the throne. The same  firm have also bonded the Black Bear  fraction and the Toboggan, both ni  the same vicinity.  A bond has recently been taken by  employees of the Granby Consolidated  on the Mavis, a claim directly south  of the Skylark and adjoining the Bay.  The bonding syndicate has put two  men to work ori the claim, and on  Wednesday evening last received word  that thev had found two very promising leads running across the property,  seventy-five feet apart,* one of which is  fully two feet in width. Only one  assay has been made of samples taken  from the outcrop, which gave value of  one and. a half ounces gold. One of  the members of the syndicate informed  The Times that active work would be  immediately commenced on the claim,  which, as can be gathered from the  foregoing, gives every evidence of  "being-a'veryrich^onei^ While-these  claims, are being operated by Phoenix  parties,, they are exclusively Greenwood district propositions and will undoubtedly do much to advertise this  camp as a very rich and profitable one  to operate in.  "   "  .  ' A group of claims, which are in fair  way to soon become coastant and large  shippers, is the Republic, situate some  two and a half miles down the valley  on the west side of the C.P.R. The  work at present being done is on the  None Such., where a tunnel has been  run on the vein for a distance of over  400 feet and w.hich is now in splendid  looking ore carrying good values in  silver, lead and gold It is the intention of W. H Smith, who is president  and manager of the company owning  the group, to continue this tunnel to  meet the shaft on the Last Chance,  which will have to be., deepened to  about 400 feet to make the connection.  The tunnel when finished will be about  2,500 feet long and by the time that the  connection is made it is estimated that  there will be over 30,000 tons of ore in  sight. There is another tunnel in  existence 75 feet lower than the present workings and which will be connected with them by a raise through  which all the ore will be taken out of  the mine. The mine is in a position to  ship lots of ore at present, but Mr.  Smith has decided, and very wisely,  to push development work and block  out the ore before doing any extensive  shipping. The probabilities are that  the company will put in a concentrator  of about 100 tons a day capacity, and  concentrate all the ore before shipping.  Several cars shipped last fall gave  values of about S23 a ton.  the first trains passed through, meeting at the centre, where there was the  iron door which originally pievented  the overflow of a. torrent of hot water,  and which was today opened for the  first lime. The weather at the entrance  to the tunnel was springlike, though  the surrounding mountains were covered with Bnow; but otice inside, the temperature became very high. Engineer  Brandon, who had directed the work  on the tunnel, conducted the Italian  train, which part of the way was  lighted by miners with lanterns.  The train from the Itaiian side was  the first to reach the iron door, but a  little later the train from the Swiss  end was heard on the other side of the  door. There was a brief time spent  in communicating through the door by  means of hammering, and finally the  door was knocked down amidst frantic  applause and cries of "Long live  Switzerland," and "'Long live Italy,"  bands played the Italian Royal March  and the Swiss Anthem, and the two  parties embraced and kissed each  other. Engineer Brandau shook hands  with Engineer Rosemund, the director  of the work on the Swiss side, and the  Italian Bishop Noverau embraced the  Swiss Bishop Sion. The latter then  preached a short sermon, saying that  "the Church blesses progress." In the  name of God, .he blessed the tunnel.  THE WEST FORK  It is our intention to shortly issue a  number of The Times especially devoted to the mines and mining claims  of the West Fork of the Fettle river, a  section directly tributary to Greenwood and from the active development  of which the local business men have  much to gain.

If possible to  obtain the photographs and the necessary support the ; number will be  illustrated and we; trust "that; we shall  have the co-opcratioh of the merchants  and citizens generally in this most important work. Synopses of the result  of the trip to be undertaken by our  representative will be mailed to all the  leading-newspapers and will undoubtedly do much to'-. advertise Greenwood  to the outside world.  We bespeak for our representative  the hearty support of the business men  in the canvass which it will be necessary to undertake before the number  can be published.  About Rheumatism.  There are few diseases that,. inflict  more torture than rheumatism and  there is probably no disease for which  such a varied and useless lot of remedies halve been shggested. To say  that it can be cured is, therefore, a  bold statement to make, but Chamberlain's Pain Balm, which enjoys an  extensive sale, has met with gret success in the treatment pf this disease.  One application of Pain Balm will relieve the pain, and hundreds of sufferers have testified to permanent  cures by its .use.'..; Why suffer when  Pain Balm affords such quick relief  and costs but a trifle ?

J  ANOTHER FURNACE  Will Be Added to Boundary  Falls Smelter   ;  INSTALL CONVERTER PLANT  In the Near Future and Capacity, More  Than Doubled.  ���  A representative of .the Tinies visited'  the Boundary Falls smelter  on   Satin--  ���da.vla.fet and -was; courteously received  by Manager Pemberton who authorized,  the statements following.  Mr. Pemberton said that * it was the  intention of his company to install as  soon as possible a/cOn'yertor plant sufficiently large to handle twice'as much  matte per day as iwiis .now being pro-.:  duced. At present' arid 'for'Some time  back the matte produced by the Montreal & Boston company has be���en con-,  .verted in the shells of the 11.C. Copper,  company. The present contract.with  the B.C. Copper Co. shortly, expires  and Mr. Petnbe-ton thinks that by that  time his piant will' be ready for business  The furnace which has been on the  ground' for some time will be put up  and still another has been ordered,  these when blown 'in will -give the  Bqiindary Falls", smelter a capacity of  from 1,200 to 1,500 tons of ore per day.  The comoany's mines are fully capable  of an output; large enough to keep the  smelter going full blast, r.  : Mr. Pemberton., said-./that h,is company had been iii'.the market;for power  for some time and there how seemed a  reasonable possibility of the Kootenav  Powder Co. puttine- ,iu; a line/this summer from Bonnington Falls.' During  Mr. Campbell's last visit to this section he virtually agreed to furnish a  line. Providing this agreement is  carried out a compressor plant will be  put on' the: Rawhide mine' and that  property extensively developed.  At present the company's  mines are  ifurnishirig-bet.ween ^T-O.and^OO^tons-ot  .ore a da}r and for some time the weekly  output has exceeded the  4,000 tons per  week,mark. '*).

The baseball season opened Sunday  with -a match between Phoenix and  Greenwood/ resultingin a'win for the  home team. Phoenix had the best of  the game until the ninth inning, when  Law and Fleming's excellent .rooting  turned the scales. J. J. Strutzel of  Phoenix ��� played an excellent game  both on and off the diamond. Phoenix  is /very'.' weak on umpires. Score 11-10  in favor of Greenwood.  Charles Oliver, one of Greenwood's  old-timer's-.'- who has been visiting his  parents in Cornwall, England, for the  pa**;t three months, returned on Tues^  day, last.-. Mr. Oliver reports immigration ;t6 the Northwest territories  exceptionally heavy at present, an  average of 28 cars a day leaving St.  Paul. The immigrants are mostly  from Kansas, Oklohama and Nebraska.  George Mackenzie and G. O. Guise  left Wednesday morning for Hazleton.

The. ladies of the ��� .Presbyterian  church held their sale of work Thursday afternoon and. evening. ��� The  booths were tastefully arranged, par-  ticularly^-that^devoted^to^the^sale^of  Ladies' Home Journal pictures and the  solicitation of. subscriptions., to that  paper-and the other Curtis' publication���-The Saturday Evening Post.  Judging- from the attendance the  affair was evidently a financial success���it certainly was socially. Re*  freshmen ts were served both afternoon and evening and a good musical  programme'rendered in the,evening.  Despite very, disagreeable weather the  attendance was large.  H. C. Ker man, sheriff of Grand  Forks, was a visitor to the city during*  the past week. Asked as to what the  syndicate which has acquired the Cora-  Canadian intends doing, Mr. Kerman  said that some interesting developments would be made public in a short  time.  ,If the bylaw now before the citizens  for ratification receives the requisite  number of votes to enable the corporation to utilize the new source of supply,  Greenwood will be brie of the best-  equipped cities in B. C. for adequate  fire protection. It will then be up to  the merchants and property owners to  apply for and receive, it is hoped, a  general reduction in fire insurance  rates. '       A     ���  The Canadian Pacific Railway company has a large gang of men at work  laying a pipe line east of Eholt. It is  anticipated that this, together with the  regular dependable source of supply,  will provide sufficient water, for all  enginies on the Columbia and Western,  without, as was the case last winter,  having to depend on the generosity of  the civic ' water systems along the  road. The shortage of water last  winter in this city was more often due  to the needs of the C. P. R. than to  Ihe actual consumption of the citizens.  ,,A ir'.eek-looking gray horse, one of  the animals used to haul a delivery  wagon by the Hunter-Kendrick Co.,  got the spring fever on Wednesday afternoon and, finding his halter rope  broken, started on a prospecting tour.  He sprinted up Copper street, then  with his helm hard a starboard careered  bravely up the hill past George & Co's,  shedding a sack of wheat en route.  Finding the harness and. wagon  slightly hampering the freedom of his  movements, Mr. Gray calmly smashed  his harness and one of the shafts of  the .vehicle vand finished his course  alone. Subsequently he wasseen tied  to the ring in front of . his owners'  store, looking as meek as ever and as  though he was not in the least to blam e  for his temporary aberation;  Up to date the people of the  coast have taken but very little interest in Greenwood mining propositions; it is' good news, 'therefore, to  hear that recent dispatches sent from  this city By visiting and local newspaper men * have created much comment, especially in the : capital and  Vancouver. From both of these centers inquiries have been received this  week, in response to. which full- and  complete details as to the outlook have  been sent. It would be a matter- of  congratulation if some of the ��� good  things could be secured by some of  the coast capitalists, instead of so  many of them going to United-States  operators, much as the latter have  done aud are doing for the development of this country.  The   guarantee   fund   provided   by  several mine owners and business men  of the city- has been   made payable,  unanimously to Arthur Wheeler, until  last week the special staff correspondent of the Victoria Daily Times.    Mr.  Wheeler will make  it his  business to  keep the outside world   posted on the  doings of the mines directly tributary  to Greenwood and would esteem it a  favor if  persons, interested in mining'  properties here would take ;the tremble,  to]';keep him posted as to the transfer  of their holdings,  development work,  etc.   It is  his intention to personally  visit all the mines and claims  as  soon  as possible.    Mr."Wheeler states that  he intends  moving his family here as  sobhas-he-can-ahfl^becomiiig-a^-resi^  dent of Greenwood.
