Smith, a.heavy shareholder in the  Dominion Cppper Company, and one of the best  known mining operators in the Boundary district, asserts that the primary motive leading >to"  , the.recent close-down of* all * operations * by the  Montreal & Boston Consolidated ,is due to gross  incompetency on ,the part of the management.  The charge is a serious one, but the maker  claims to have substantial proofs, which he has  already laid before his fellow shareholders in  the Dominion Copper Company. Mr. Smith also  charges the Consolidated with non-accounting  for ores, and claims that the shareholders- of the  Dominion Copper Company are entitled to the  distribution of fully $100,000 which should have  been paid over by the Montreal & Boston Consolidated.   General Manager H. T. ��� Pemberton has is^  sued a statement^s^sigrii^g~the"~suddenniessatron  of operations to telegraphic instructions from  the head office at New York, which ordered the  closing down of the mines and "blowing out" of  the smelter, pending the reorganization of the  company. ' It is also stated that the controlling  interest in the Consolidated will pass into the  hands of a strong group of Eastern copper operators. Meanwhile intense interest is be*ng  manifested in Boundary mining circles as to the  final outcome.  Mr, Smith characterizes the close down as  being entirely unwarranted. To a representative  of the Boundary Creek Times he said : "Nearly  a year ago the Dominion Copper Company entered into an agreement with the Montreal &  Boston Consolidated for the sale of all its properties in Phoenix camp for $480,000, being ou a  basis of fifteen cents per share, on 3,200,000  shares of stock. cUnder the iterms of the bond  the purchasing company was to pay $12,000 per  month, and two dollars per ton on all ore shipped from the Phoenix mines to the company's  smelter. Settlement for this ore to be made  every thirty days and the proceeds applied on  the bond. So far only $96,000,has been paid on  the bond, and no settlement made for some 50,  000 tons of ore shipped during the past ninety  days. In other words the Dominion shareholders are entitled to the distribution of at least  $100,000. James Breen, who owns one million  shares is now in the east demanding for the  local shareholders, an accounting of the' ore  treated. He is the heaviest individual shareholder.  "Regarding the re-organization scheme  I  believe it is for the.express purpose of paying off  the bond of the Dominion Copper .Company, as I  notice by" the eastern financial press that the  directors of the Consolidated propose issuing  $700,000 of six per cent mortgage bonds.'.This  cannot be carried out until we are paid up, and  they obtain legal title to the mines."  Reverting to the serious charge of incompetency in the smelting department he continued : "It is the same old story of the, directors  sending out a manager with no practical experience in mining or smelting. H. T. Pemberton  is not, in my opinion, a qualified man. I don't  .believe he ever saw the inside of a -copper smelt"  er before he took charge of the giant , at Boundary Falls. This gross incompetency has resulted in a direct loss of thousands of dollars in copper matte, which even the veriest novice could  ascertain for himself by an examination of the  "slagdumpr   "I have no fault to find with the management of the mines. Under superintendent Geo.  H. Collins they have been placed in a splendid  position for continuous shipment. The closedown was inevitable through the causes I have  stated, and in my opinion is a serious setback to  mining in the Boundary."  The Dominion Copper Company owns the  Brooklyn, Stemwinder, Rawhide, Standard,  Montezuma, and Idaho, copper claims in the  Phoenix camp. For practically the past ten  mouths the first three named mines have been  shipping to the Boundary Falls smelter. The  principal shareholders in the company are James  Breen and F. J. Roberts of Spokane; Mayor  George Rumberger of Phoenix, W. T. Smith of  this city and Messrs. McKenzie, Mann & Cox,  the millionaire railway syndicate of Toronto,  Ont. It is reported that the Toronto capitalists  agreed to subscribe to $300,000 of bonds in the  re-organized corporation.  ���The Montreal & Boston Consolidated, was  promoted by Messrs. Munroe & Munroe, whose  creditors now hold their interest. The company  owns the smelter at Boundarv Falls and the  Sunset mine iu Deadwood camp. Of recent date  it acquired the Morrison mine in the same camp"  and the Athelstan in Wellington camp. The  close-down affects fully 250 employees in the  mines and smelter, who have been paid off. The  pumps in the Phoenix mines have not.been drawn  out, which is significant and the  general belief  is that after  tlie experts have made a full examination of both the mines andsmelter the new  plan of reorganization with  ample capital   for  (Continued, on page two.)  \0.  ���affiSS^i^?H��eWBS?B^a5BH5RB rt^iw ^i-vu*^c*w  BOUNDARY GREEK   TIMES.  MONTREAL AND BOSTON  (Continued from Page 1.)'  working expenses will be successfully carried out.  General manager H. T. Pemberton authorized the following  statement regarding the charges  made by Mr. Smith:       s  "The charges made by W. T.  Smith about slag losses is a  malicious falsehood which may  be proven by an examination of  the company's monthly statement on fyle at New York and  open to the inspection of any  shareholder of my company. Mr.  Smith has seen fit to bring me  personally into this matteT but  his motive is beyond conjecture.  The issues he mentions regarding  non-payment for ores smelted are  a matter for settlement between  the directors of the two companys  and have n,o bearing upon the  local management.  "Instructions were received  from New York to close down  pending the re-organization, and  for this reason only were operations suspended. I cannot too  strongly refute the allegations  made by Smith which will be  proven on examination to be  without foundation."  MONTREAL & BOSTON  Details   of   Reorganization���Entire  Change of Management.  Montreal advices received early in  the week contained particulars of the  re-organization scheme af follows :  The new Dominion Copper Co., will  have 2,600,000 shares of stock par SI,  any $700,000 bonds, in lieu of the old  capitalization of 1,200,000 shares, par  $5 00.  Of the 2,600,000 shares of new stock,  1,000,000 shares go to the stockholders,  1,400,000 go as a bonus with the $70,-  000 bonds, and 200,000 shares go for  reorganization expenses and as abonrs  to Munroe & Munroe .creditors. As  these creditors hold 310,000 shares of  stock, they secure 1 1-2 shares of new  stock for each share of old.  The bond issue of 5700,000 is all underwritten, Mckenzie & Mann the  original owners of the Dominion Copper Co., having underwritten $300,000  of the new bonds. They will be oilered  to stockholders at 90. Underwriters  get them at 10 per cent less.  The new company will start off with  its properties fully paid for, and about  $250,000 cash in the treasury.  Smelting operations have been ordered suspended while the smel+er capacity is being increased from two do  four furnaces, which will give it a  capacity of 1000 tons per day. The  property will have an e~utire"change of  management.  THE PROVIDENCE CO.  Meeting of Directors Held Yesterday  at Which Some New Ideas  Were Introduced.  ROSSLAND FATALTIES  The meeting of the directors of the  Providence Mining company was the  most harmonious . yet held, all the  business transacted being practically  unanimously carried by the board.  W. T. Hunter was elected secretary  of the company, in place of H. V. Fuller, resigned.  It was decided to sell 2,000 shares of  treasury stock, Mark F. Madden being the broker appointed to dispose of  them. Stockholders will have first  chance to purchase. Twenty days  were allowed in which to make application. ��� The sale of this stock will  provide funds for contemplated additions to the machinery of the mine.  It is probable a dividend will be declared in the near future.  It was decided to fight the Diamond  litigation to a " finish."  An offer was made by local shareholders to either buy outside holdings  or sell their stock to the controlling  interests. This proposition was declined by the board, it is said, on the  ground that better results could  be obtained by having local parties  interested who' could "notify the board  in Chicago of incompetency or mismanagement.  Active development will be carried  on at the mine in future.  Two   Meet   Death  and   Three  Are  Injured.  Rossland, May 24���Two men killed  and three wounded is the list of casualties in the Rossland mines during the  past 24 hours.  The first fatality occurred about  midnight last night, when Hugh Bennett, a young miner, employed in the  Josie, was coming on shift, liy some  unknown means he slipped from the  lander and fell into timber chute a distance of SO feet. He died while he was  being taken to the surface. There  were no external injuries and the physicians said the cause of death was a  ruptured blood vessel.  At 1 o'clock today, Levi Handcback.  a shoveller in the Le Roi, had the roof  cave in on him where he was wonting  on the 700-foot level. His left leg- was  so badly shattered that it had to be  amputated above the knee.  At 4.30 this afternoon on the 1050-  foot level of the Le Roi, Steve Welsh  was picking behing the machine when  the sharp point of the implement struck  a stick of dynamite that had not exploded when the previous round of  holes had been 'fired. The dynamite  exploded under the impact of the implement and the result was that Welsh  was instantly killed, his body being  mangled badly.  John Shimgneski, a machine man,  who was near by, was hurled a considerable distance by the explosion,  and his leg broken, while Alex. Mc-  Farland, another machine man, who  was a little further away, was severely  cut about the head and face.  >���/- ��/- x>/"      A"\TT\     "&" ��*����� so/-*  ^XL,*^****     A1ND    m*m\,**,+%,,  ��o       sua *  PLUMBER  NOTICE.

'1  Mi  'rl  i  {���> I  ���1  m  i  1  i  r'!l  n  if  ���fi BOUNDARY   GREEK   TIMES  By Percy Godenrath.  A run through the-Boundary dis-,  trict ai this season cannot fail to impress on the mind that an era of cultivation has at last really set in, and  thaf particular attention is being- directed to the possibilities of fruit culture and mixed farming-. Throughout  the numerous arable valleys, or along  tiie sunny slopes of mountain sides,  oua notes evidences of cultivation, and  what is better���scores of new homes;  It is two years aince the writer last  visited the " Boundless Boundary,"  and no better indications of its growth  and prosperity are to be found���aside  Jrom Its mining���than the fact that  fruit growing and mixed farming is  here b,eing profitably engaged in. It  means much for its uprowth, adding a  stable and permanent population of  thrifty tillers of the soil, who, working hand in hand with the toilers in  the mines and smelters, create conditions that many another section of our  great province might well envy.  Keeping pace with the horticultural  industrv of Grand Forks, whose River-  t "  side nursery is one of the most interesting sights of the Gateway City, is  ever adding to his stock and planting  additional acreage, to meet not only  the increasing wants of a splendid  home market, but to supply the de-  demand of the Kootenays.r Chatting  with him the other day he outlined to  xne the progress of Canadian horticulture during'the last quarter of acen-  , tury, which has been of so marvellous  a character, that, to anyone not conversant with the statistics, the actual"  status of this important industry would  be a matter of" unbounded astonishment. Let me say here that the  editor of The Times invited me to'con-  tribute something to this week's issue,  arid' though" nominally The Times represents a mining community, I purpose taking a new trend,-and pointing  out the possibilities of the Boundary  to those looking for locations, particularly with'a view to engaging in-fruit  raising! To come back, then, to my  interview with Mr. Burrell, for he is  an authority on the subject, having  before his arrival in. the district been  lecturer for the Ontario Farmers'jjln-  stitttte, the Ontario Fruit Growers'  Association, and also in charge of the  Tender' Fruit "section of the experimental station at Niagara, Ont, He  said:       ��� -��� -  'fin-its commercial   aspect  British  Columbia horticulture has within the  i s~  last ten years made such progress that  it is little short of phenomenal. A  fuller recognition of the, favorable  climatic and soil conditions has been  accompanied by a vigorous effort on  the part- of the fruit growers of this  province to produce an .article that will  hold its own in competition with any  fruit grown on the continent. The  gradual capturing of the markets'of  Manitoba and the Northwest by B. C.  fruit is a convincing proof of success.  Speaking* of   the province generally,  and my remarks are pertinent-tcTthe  Boundary, it is fairly free from the  worst insect "pests of the east. Three  of the worst ���the San Jose scale, the  codlin moth and the plum curculio are  practically unknown. The pear and  cherry slug (Selandria cerasia) and the  bud moth are. more or less injurious in  the western districts, but I Jiave not  seen either of them in the Kettle river  valley. But the great advantage of  this und other contiguous valleys  over the "coast and lower mainland districts from the horticultural standpoint lies iu its immunity from serious  fungus diseases. This is doubtless  owing to the altitude. We are here  1,700 to 2.000 feet above sea level, and  the "rot" of the plum (Monilia fruc-  tigena), and scab of the apple (Fusi-  cladium) are practicallp unUnown.  Exemption from these two diseases,  which so grtiatly diminish the profits  of fruit culture in ^Eastern Canada,  and which seriously injure plums, apples, etc.,- in. other portions of the  province should be, and is, a factor of  the greatest importance, to the fruit  growers of the Boundary.  "In addition to our freedom from  the most injurious insect and. fungua  scourges, mention must be made of the  wonderful growth of all fruit trees:��� an  eloquent testimony to the richness of  of the soil and of another important  fact, that all classes of fruit trees come  itilo bearing at a considerably earlier  age than in the east. The coolness of  the nights here somewhat' retards the  ripening period of some* fruits and on  this account it is doubtful if errape-  growing will be a commercial success.  Berries  do  extremely well  in the val  fruit 1 have seen in twenty years' experience on this continent. Fine  peaches and sweet cherries have been  grown, b.ut the severe cold of an occasional winter will doubtless do more or  less injury to these tender fruits and  for commercial purposes they should  be planted more sparingly than plums,  crabs, apples, pears, etc, with which  success is practically sure. In brief,  I can unhesitatingly say that with our  ever expanding markets, a fine climate  and comparative freedom from pests,  fruit growers in the Boundary have an  exceedingly bright outlook."  For years the agricultural resources  of the Kettle river valley, in the immediate vicinity of Cascade City and  Grand Forks, and further west between Midway and Rock Creek, have  been locally known and, appreciated.  Now holdings are being secured up the  North and West Forks of Kettle river.,  Land along Boundary creek, between  Eholt and Midway, in the bottoms  and on the sunny slopes of the mountains enclosing it, show many signs of  patient husbandry in new 'clearing*  and young orchards. The start ha��  been made. Old timers who acquired  large acreages are-following- the example set by the' Okanaganp and are  dividing their farms-into 'smaller holdings of 10, 20 and 40 acre plots, which  find a ready sale to newcomers���for  the prolific character of the soils is  gradually becoming known on the outside.   '  The recent sale of the McConnell  ranch, embracing about 1,400 acres,  practically adjoining the townsite of  Grand Forks, to Messrs. N. Mctlellan  and Ernest Miller, carried with it the  conditions that, the property shall at  once be surveyed and , subdivided  into suitable blocks in ��� order to  get a fair realization .of the value of  the respecttve portions and procure  settlement. For "the past two weeks  Forbes M. Kerby, T?.. L.-S., has  been laying out the' land and it is  the intention of the purchasers themselves to plant a large area' in fruit  trees this season and next spring. The  early settlement, of this tract means  much to Grand Forks, for the greater  part of the property contains as fine a  stretch of fruit growing and agricultural land.as can be found anywhere  in the Kettle river valley.  Writing- of the possibilities of that  section" of. the valley, the history of,  William Henry Covert, the pioneer  fruit grower, is well worth telling. For  nigh on two decades Covert has toiled  and tilled 320 acres, bringing'it from a  scene of desolate^beauty, unacquainted  with the fertility of its own resources,  to the embodiment of perfected loveliness.' In 1902 he decided to sut up the  homestead into ten acre plots, install a  complete irrigation and and domestic  Water system and sell out, retaining a  small acreage for himself. This he  has at last been successful in doing,  and after paying all - expenses will receive a comfortable competence that  entitles him iu-his-declining- years-to  retire from the arena of daily toil.  Il was late in the fall of 1885 when  this sturdy Argonaut decided to take  up a homestead in the Kettle river valley. He came to the district long before any of the now numerous towns,  mining camps and smelters had come  into existence. Marcus, on the American side of the line, distant 45 miles,  was the nearest trading post. Evety-  thing had to be packed on horseback  to the ranch. There wen* no_roads,  only Indian trails. Little by little it  became noised about that mineral���  gold, silver, copper and lead���were to  be found in the rugged fastness of the  adjoining mountains. Shortly came  the advance guard of civilization���  the sturdy Bedouin of the hills. Not  until after the Rossland "boom" ��in  1895 6, did the Boundary attract any  particular attention. It is well known  that mining men, many indeed  high up in their profession, who came  to examine the claims, while admitting  their great potentialities, turned them  down for lack of transportation facilities. But claini owners did not become discouraged^ neither did this  pioneer fanner. The former dug and  delved for the hidden treasures, and  the latter toiled early and late to cultivate the soil. Finally . the Canadian  Pacific railway sent in several experts  and on their reports promptly built the  Columbia and Western" branch at a  cost of oyer $3,000,000 to tap the numerous*, camps. In a day the advent  of the "iron horse" caused embryonic  cities to spring up, the payrolls at the  different camps steadily increased, the  mines   were   developed and   smelters  ciously, commenced to 'reap their reward. Of these perhaps Mr. Covert  was the best known. To his place  came the mine owner and prospector  for their supplies of vegetables, fruits',  and meats. Covert cleared more land,  planted orchards and small fruit trees.  He was always energetic and ambitious, and he knew, too, that mining  camps demand the best luxuries in the  eating line. This demand he was able  ,to supply at handsome figures, and  now after twenty years of frugality  and effort success has come to him. A  success that every pioneer applauds,  for did he not pave the way ? This  man started with $60, borrowed money!  Today the sale of his property will  net him over 325,000���all won by persistent and intelligent effort. This  should be au incentive to the persevering, frugal and industrious husbandman, who, casting about for a  location, makes up his mind to throw  in his lot with ' the toilers of the  "Boundless Boundary." Iu conclusion it may safely be stated that few  sections of the entire province show  greater progress than the Boundary  and it offers unsurpassed inducements  to the settler in searce of a location;  the stockman seeking a ranch; the  fruit grower in search of an orchard;  the prospector in quest of earth's hidden treasure, vaults; the lumberman,  the business man, or the capitalist,  .whethea large or small, who seeks investment for his money.  msamm^mmmimmgmmmms!

Both sides to the  controversy have had a hearing  and brief statements from the  local -management and a local  stockholder are placed side 'inside. Tbe Times feels that justice to all concerned demanded  such a course. It knows too  little of the merits of the matter  to do other than allow the parties in interest to state their case.  "We have abundant grounds however for expressing the opinion  that the shut-down will be of  short duration-. The company is  in process of reconstruction along  lines that must insure to its personal well fare. The coinpany  has some of the best properties  in the Boundary and once well  financed and well managed cannot prove other than a moneymaker for its stockholders. The  pending reorganization promises the former and undoubtedly means the latter. The company's mines are in line-condition  for a large and increasing output and if the capacity- of the  smelting plant-should'be doubled.  as intimated, the outlook ,'for a  prosperous future is assured. It  is due moreover to the readers of  this paper at a distance to have  this assurance of the values of  the company's holdings, even as  it is due to the district to prevent  misconception of the merits of  the camp. ,  The closing of the works moreover will afford the New York  management opportunity "to."inquire into the labor conditions at  the works and to relieve if.found  necessary a situation which it is  claimed was fast becoming intolerable. Wc have uo fear  whatever but that the presenl  interchange of views between  management and stockholder will  result in good, nor have we any  doubt of the great merits, and  possibilities of the big concern.'  Tire Timks appears this issue  in an enlarged form. This, of  course,'*means a larger expenditure, aud it/is a question of patronage whether the the increased  expenditure can be met by the  management or not. Fully one  half of the business men of the  city do not advertise. Nearly all  of them are interested in mining,  and are anxious to have the development work on their claims  mentioned. Onl\r one hotel iu  the city advertises. Hotel men  ask and receive more courtesies  from the press Athan auy other  class. The)* seldom give anything in return for this. Of the  thousands of prospectors" whose  claims have been written up in  this paper, not five, per cent have  become subscribers. A newspaper is a business proposition  aud therefore requires money to  keep it going.  Davys, the mine manager who  imagined he was of so much importance that the miners of the  Slocan were wasting good ammu-  nition on him, has decided to discontinue work ou his claims near  Silverton, until some one is convicted and sentenced. Before be-  comining interested iu mining  property in.the Slocan Mr. Davys  must have known the conditions  that existed in regard to labor  and the wages that it would be  be uecessar}r for him to pay/ He  must have known that the people  were opposed to OrieutaL labor.  Kuowing this, in acquiring property, lie entered into au agreement���as binding to an honorable  man as a written one���to comply  with the conditions sthen exist-  in the district. No i one would  claim that Mr. Davys had not  a legal right to bring Chinese  irito the Slocan, but iu doing so  he violated a tacit agreement  with the people of the Slocan.  An Eastern dispatch says that  the fight between the C. P. R.  'and Great Northern over the V.  V. & E. charter has been declared  off, the latter road being allowed  to build without, opposition, aud  the former will be given [running  privileges over the road. This  will be satisfactory to the people  west of here if some provision  is made iu regard to freight and  passenger rates. A railroad to  the Similkameen is a necessity  in the development of the mines  of that district, but members of  parliament should protect the  people from excessive charges  which will undoubtedly result  from the agreement which the  dispatch announces.  Notwithstanding rumors that  have been current in the city for  the past two weeks, no intimation has been received' from Ottawa of a change iu the editorial  or business management of The  Times. Should a change be contemplated, due notice will prob  ably be given in  the  columns of  the paper by the managing editor.  Crucifixion is a mild form of  torture to that sometimes inflicted b}r a vicious directorate on  small shareholders of a mining  company.  The annual report of the provincial minister of mines lias  been received, but to late<for extended notice in this issue. ; '  A Cheerful Giver.  Bobby's father had given him a ten  cent piece and a quarter of a dollar,  telling him he might put one or other  on the contribution plate.  Which did you give, Bobby ? his  father asked when the boy came home  from church.  Well,' father, I thought at first I  ought to put in the quarter, said Bobby,  but then, jttst in time, I remembered  "the L,ord loveth a cheerful giver,"  and I knew I could give the ten cent  piece a great deal more cheerfully, so I  put that in.

T. Dickasoii, a prominent  capitalist of Chicago, largely interested in the coal business in that section, E. Fdrd Johnson and William  Bailey, also of Chicag-o, were visitors  at Greenwood during the latter part of  last week. Mr. Bailey had been here,  before, but it was the first visit of the  other two gentlemen.  The party visited the Crescent, Last  Chance, Preston, Helen Skylark and  several other properties'. All expressed  themselves highly pleased with the  country and greatly impressed with  the potentialities of the Greenwood  high-grade belt. Colonel Dickason  and Mr. Johnson returned to Chicago  on Tuesday morning last, but expect  to come back and pay a more extended  visit to the camp during the coming  summer. Mr. Bailey will remain for  some time and it is not unlikely that  he will make Greenwood his headquarters permanently.  While here the party, purchased the  Preston, adjoining the well known  Crescent mine. From the Crescent  some of the richest ore' yet found in  the camp has been taken, assays ranging from $M3 to 35808 per ton in gold  and silver. The details of the deal are  withheld, but it is understood the price  paid was a substantial one, the previous owners retaining an*,interest.  It is the intention of the new own-  srs to organize a stock company, but  liriiited to themselves and their associates, among whom are Mr. Ferdinand W. Peck, Samuel K. Martin, and  other  prominent  Chicago , capitalist's,  Development work has already been  begun under the supervision of "W. H.  Jeffery, M. E., a force of nine men  having been started at work immediately negotiations were concluded  aud the title to  the property acquired.  The outlook for the Preston is very  bright and it should soon become a  valuable addition to the producers of  high-grade ere and aid to swell the list  of constantly growing dividend-paying mines in Greenwood.  It is a great satisfaction to those in  the district who have the truest in-  tereets of the mining industry at heart  to know that Chicago people of high  standing,, means and influence are  getting hold of so many good things  in this neighborhood. The gentlemen  named have a very large following in  Chicago and the probability is that  more and larger deals will follow as  the result of their advent into this  camp.'  THE GOLD DROP.  One of the first "ciaims~located" on"  Wallace mountain, West Fork of Kettle river, was the Gold Drop, owned by  Thomas Murray. The location was  made in 1899, and the claim lies near  the Rambler, Black Diamond and  Standard. Two shafts h?.vebeensunk  on a 5-foot-lead, one 45 and the other  2Z feet. The lead has been prospected  by open cuts for a distance of 2,000  feet. In the ledge there is a paystreak  20 inches wide averaging 300 ounces in  silver. This paystreek occurs in the  20 foot shaft. In the 45-foot shaft, in  addition to the paystreak already mentioned, there is a lead from two to  four inches wide, principally gray copper, and running 450 ounces in silver.  Besides the Gold Drop, Mr. Murray  and his father, P. . Murray,*��� own the  Homestake and Gold Drop Fraction,  adjoining claims. Development will  be resumed on this group in a couple  of weeks, when a drift tunnel will be  run a distance of 250 feet this season.  This will give a vertical depth from  the apex of about 175 feet. The owners intend shipping ore' the corning  winter, and believe that there will be  a good net profit to their credit, even  ���with the handicap of a fifty mile haul  to the railway against them. Two  shifts will be worked all summer. The  claims are about a mile from the West  Fork wagon road and a few hundred  feet from,the Rambler road.  ore, the mine was apparently abandoned, until a ���syndicate of Phoenix  men got together and subscribed a  small fund to start operations last fall.  A development company was formed  headed by A. W. B. Hodges, general  superintendent of the Granby company, as president; Dr. R. B. Boucher,  vice-president; A. B. Hood,, secretary,  aud O. B. Smith, 'superintendent of the  Granby mines, manager. Since starting operations, October 1st, the mine  has paid for its own development, cost  of machinery and the payments on the  $30,000 bond, have been met. In one  month alone, April, the ore returns  netted S7,000. This from a mine apparently gutted, and from a vein running from 6 to 13 inches in width. The  first-class ore averages $140 per ton,  and the second-class $40. The share  holders in the development company  have cause to believe they have struck  a bonanza, as from present indicatioas  the Skylark is capable of turning out  many thousands of dollars worth of  rich ore. ��  THE DON PEDRO  Development was resumed Monday  on the Don Pedro, one of the claims  included in the Lake group iti Skylark  ���samp, owned by the Chicago-B. C.  Mining company. At t.ie time work  was suspended the shaft was down 75  feet, and Manager Harry Shallenberger states that' the 150-foot level will  be reached before drifting is started.  A horse whim is being installed. Previous development disclosed a vein of  quartz highly mineralized, averaging  a foot in width. On the dump sufficient ore to make up a carload was  taken out which more than paid expenses of . sinking. The companj'  owns 177 acres of crown-granted land,  traversing which are several high-  grade veins, carrying gold and Bilver  values." Surveyors are locating a  wagon ^road to join the Greenwood-  Phoenix main trunk, road. Ten men  a*"e employed.  FAREWELL SERMON-  THE SKYLARK.  The Skylark Development company  limited, owning the Skylark mine in  the camp of the same name, is an instance of what intelligent mining will  accomplish, after the, original owners  had thrown up the sponge and declared  there was no more ore to be had. After  years noted as a producerofhigh-gra.de  The Rev. J. D. Knox, who has been  pastor of the Greenwood Methodist  church' for the past four years, will  occupy,the pulpit for the last time on  Sunday next, 11 a. m.. and 7:30 p. m,  and on the following Thursday night  a reception will be given in his honor  by the church, to which his congregation and friends are cordially invited.  It is expected that the Rev. H. S.  Hastings, Mr. Knox's successor^ will  be present, when the congregation will  have an opportunity to receive their  new pastor.  Chamberlain's  Cough   Remedy   the  Very Best-  "I have been using Chamberlain's  Cough Remedy and want to say it is  the best cough medicine I have ever  taken," says Geo. Iy- Chubb, a merchant "of Harlan, Mich. There is no  question about it being the best, as it  will cure a cough or cold iu less time  than any other treatment. It should  always bekept in' the house ready for  instant use, for a cold can be cured in  much less'time when promptly treated.  For sale by all druggists.

However just a strike may be, if it  be followed by acts of violence public  sympathy is turned against the strikers, and public sympathy oftentimes  plays an important part in the matter  of winning or losing a .strike. Violence is as wrong* morally as it is  leg-ally. Men have a right to quit  work, but no man has a right to do  bodily harm to another for taking his  job. Working-men have the undoubted  right to organize, to strike for better  conditions, to persuade other workmen  to stand with them, and to persuade  the public to give the preference to  those who concede union conditions. So much is conceded now by  all except a reactiouanr few who woul^d  follow the truth that "every man has  a right to manage his pwn business"  to the absurdity of destroying fundamental rights of workingmen. N>These  few, however, are so far in the minority  that they and their opinions are of  small moment. Bufworkingmen and  all other men, must realize���and nearly  all of them do realize���that others  have the right to refuse to be persuaded  without incurring violence or threats  of violence. The unions are not going  to be weakened, but strengthened, by  a rigid enforcement of the law. They  have ample room for the exercise of  all their energies under the law. The  brick-throwing unionist is the most  effective strike-breaker.. The unionist  who asserts ail his rights and at the  same time respects the rights of others  is the man who helps his fellows and  improves the civilization of -whi-h he  is a part.���Nelson Economist."  During his recent stay in England  Sir Thomas Shaugnessy was reported  in the columns of The Chronicle as deploring the ignorance that still prevails concerning Canada in Great  Britain'. "People," he said, "should  visit Canada instead of going to Monte  Carlo, "Vienna, Rome, the River.a. If  they would occasionally turn their attention in another direction and visit  what is, after all, a part of their own  country, and should be recognized as  such, quite as much as' Scotland, or  Ireland, some good might result.
