Women's Goods  Men's  Goods  >s\*s'\*/r*<rr'<�����'WW  In order to get at  the   true   inward  ness of the muddle over the appointment of the new  chief of police, and,  if possible, to locate the responsibility  for what is considered a grave mistake,  and   knowing, that  the responsibility  rested witn the Conservative party, if  not with its late candidate for parliamentary   honors,   a representative of  the Times waited on Mr. E. G. Warren  and submitted to him a. list of questions  to which he asked replies.    We subjoin  herewith a list of such  questions and  replies thereto, made by Mr.  Warren,  and submit the  same to the public as  the best available  information on the  present situation:  Question���Did you promise Chas. J.  McArthur, or anyone else, that if he  gave yon his support in the recent  campaign you would see that police  commissioners were appointed that  would remove Chief McKenzie?  Answer���No.  Q.���Do you know of .any specific instances of wrong doing- or incompetency on the part of Chief-McKenzie  warranting his dischargV?  A.���I do not. bat am aware of several  people who consider him inefficient.  Q.���Is it not a fact that in the Con-1  servative committee, when the question  of police commissioners came up, you  were opposed   to tho   appointment of  Mr. McDonald, but that the  majority  overruled you, claiming- that  you  had  promised Chas. McArthur that in consideration  for  his support  you would  recommend commissioners pledged to  work  for  the   dismissal   of the chief,  and 'that   you   subsequently   stated to  the secretary of your committee   that  ,if'trouble arose ov^r .the  appointment  you would claim that the name  of the  commissioner had  become  mixed  and  that Mr. Fleming- should have been the  party named on the board?  A.���I consider that, question very  impertinent. As you should know, it  would be impossible- for me to publish  anything in connection with the proceeding of the Conservative executive  committee. 0  ��� Q.���Are you satisfied with the appointment of Mr. Jas. Foulds as chief  of " pol icer an d-if-not-wh at- steps.d o^you  propose to take to rig-ht the wrong- done  to the good name of this community by  such appointment?   ���  A,���I am led to believe that this is  only a temporary appointment. If it  is a permanent appointment lam very  much opposed to it. I assume no responsibility for the act of the present  board of police commissioners. If,  however, a wrong- has been done the  public, so far as fam concerned I will  use every efi"ort.,to right it.  Q.���Were you approached   by   Chas.  J, McArthur in regard to the matter of  appointing police commissioners? :  A.- No.  It is evident from the replies given  that Mr. Warren is conscious of a  wrong done the public in the matter in  question, and it is equally evident that  he feels in duty hound, so far as he is  able to reach the ear of the govern  ment to see that the wrong-  is  righted  at once.  We await his further action in the  premises, and feel hopeful that the  Foulds regime will be short-lived.  According to  an  official  announcement that has just been made, Mr. Colgate Hoyt has been elected president of  the British Columbia Copper Company,  Limited,  succeeding Mr. F. L. Underwood.    At the same meeting Mr. Newman Erb was elected chairman of the  board  of directors,   Mr.   B.  B.   Lawrence, an  expert  mining engineer of  wide reputation, and Mr.  F.  L. Som-  mers were elected vice presidents, and  Mr. R. H. Egglestpn was elected  secretary and treasurer.  Mr. B. B. Lawrence, Mr. Edwin  Hawley and Mr. C. A. Starbuck were  elected members of the executive committee, together with the officers. ������.*  The British Columbia Copper company is one of the strongest and  most  important organizations operating in  the British Columbia  region.   It was  organized in 1898,  under the laws of  West Virgina, with .a capital stock of  $2,000,000, in shares of the par Yalue of  $5 each, which sum has recently  been  increased to $3,666,000.     Tlie company  owns copper mines at Greenwood, B.C.  with adjacent properties, and is: actively   operating   them.     Important   important improvements   have   recently  been completed iri connection  with its  I furnaces   and    operating    plant. -"It  originally  had  two furnaces  and   an  operating plant and during the past  year three modern furnaces,  having a  daily capacity of about 700-tons each,  or about 2,000 tons in all, bringing the  total capacity  up to about 2,500 tons  daily.     Various other   improvements  have been  made,  no as to bring the  plant   up   to   the   highest   degree ,of  efficiency.   It is expected that the com  pany will now. be able to produce refined  copper; at   about   8>��   cents per  pound, and, with two furnaces  and  at  the present price oi copper,: be  able to  earn approximately  $1,000,000  net per  annum, to be increased^vhen .the three  new furnaces are in operation.  The company has also acquired considerable additional mining property  of great promise.  For the future the outlook is highly  encouraging, and it is expected that  the payment of dividends will have to  be^fecbrdedin'the-near-future.���^-^^=.^.  Large expectations are entertained  of the new   administration.    Mr. Colgate Hoyt brings to bear great experi-  encs in connection with   the  handling  of  important   railroad,   financial  and  industrial   interests.     He.   is   United  States trustee of the Netherlands Fire  Insurance company, and  director  and  trustee of many other  important   corporations.  The district  just east  of town,  and  embracing the southern part of Providence and the northern part of Skylark ���'  camps,  appears   to   be   the centre o*  attraction just now in the high  grade  belt.    The Providence,  prove* by the  greatest   depth   in   the camp to be a  great mine, has dropped out of public  question, if not of interest, and  other -  claims establishing the bona fides   of  mines are matters of greater regard.  The Skylark, too, having passed the  experimental stage,  and  having  paid  its  purchase price,   development   and  equipment   out   of   ore   proceeds,   ao  | longer causes anxiety to either owners  lor   the   public.

There is something very anomalous  in the appointing of the chief of police. , That officer ij the appointee of  the police commissioners, and the po  lice commissioners are the appointees  of the Provincial government. The  police commissioners fix the salary of  the chief pi" police, but the city pays  the bills, and is directly affected by his  administration. Until a few years ago  it was the custom of the government  to recognize nominations by the city  council for the office of commissioners.  Laterly, however, this custom hi>s  fallen into disuse, and the governmen  has made the appointments under the  law independent of the advice of the  council. The idea obtains that the  government in the present, as in other  instances, has been guided rather by  the advice of its political friends than  by those most vitally interested. Under  the law the police commissioners of a  town must be the mayor, one alderman  and one other not a city official. The  representatives of the town board ap  pointed recently on the police board  were Mayor Bunting and Alderman  Sutherland The outsider chosen was  Philip McDonald. Although no official  notification had been received by the  city of the constitution of the board,  Alderman Sutherland called a meeting  of the board for Wednesday last. Mayor  Bunting appears to have objected to  action taken by, the board  until such  ! official notice was at hand, arid as a  j result withdrew from the meeting.  The remaining commissioners, however proceeded with business and appointed James Foulds as chief of po  lice, his duties to begin on the 27th  inst. As a result Foulds was sworn in  on Wednesday last and now wears the  city's badge ot office.  Under the law there appears to be,iio  redress for the city, so far as the appointment goes If the city feels the  salary fixed is excessive, it can appeal  to the governor in council for relief,  but against the appointee it i.s powerless, although obliged to pay his salary  and.accept such service as he gives.  At Wednesday's meeting the board  issued instructions to the new chief of  police to rid the city of all suspicious  characters, and to thoroughly clean it  up.  Thi new appointment does not appear to be meeting with the approval  of the citizens. Even a large clement  of the local Conservatives censure the  board, and feel that the government  has been badly advised, and that the  police board has acted very unwisely.  From comments freely expressed it  would look as if the confidential advisers of the Conservative party had  had a case of run awry and bad smash-  up, and that some bones had been  broken too badly to be re-set.  Is Greenwood to'emulate the Phoenix  of the past, is now the question on the  lips of many.  Thb Boers appear to have got the  best of it in the recent elections in  South Africa. The first Transvaal  ministry will comprise General Botha,  premier and minister of national affairs.  The colouial secretary, General  Smutts, was prominent also in the late  war, as well as in the government of  President Kruger.

To pay the interest on its bonds held  by foreign investors and to meet its  other obligitions, Japan, during the  late war, carried a balance on deposit  | in Eondon, which was never allowed  to fall below S5,000,000, and which at  times amounted to more than  $20,000,-  000.  It is a well known fact that all of the  royal families of Europe,1 as well as  the leading statesmen, have large sums  always on deposit with the Bank of  England as a contingency against possible disturbance in their own countrj'.  It is evident that theamonnt of foreign  capital invested in London aggregates  an enormous sum���a sum which has  been variously estimated by different  authorities at anywhere from S250.000,-  000 tn 54,000,000.  Mr. Inglis Palgrave, undoubtedly  the leading authority in England on  monetary questions, recently made an  estimate of the number of banks carrying on business in Londor, either  directly or through agents. He estimates that there is a total of 1,271  banks, having aggregate resources of  approximately 322,800,000. Of this  total, 1,067 were colonial and foreign  banks with aggregate resources of over  317,600,000,000.  Synopsis of Canadian Homestead  Regulations.  ANY available Dominion Lands within th.

BAD LUCK.  The B. C Copper company has been  having lots of trouble lately, at the  mine. The run of luck appears to have  been against them. On Thursday last  a rock slide carried away the big  crusher demoralizing things generally.  It will take some day�� to clean up  and restore order, during which little  or no ore can come down the hill. The  slide is the first reported in the camp  and is doubtless due to the rock and  earth having been loosened by years of  heavy shooting near by. The accident  occurs at a particularly unhappy moment, the company having been working to the point where all three of the  furnaces at the smelter could get into  commission,  AN APPEAL TO RICHARD  G-RBRNWOOI), B. C.  To Hon. -Richard McBride:  Most Gracious Sir���My appointment is now three days overdue, but  have not been idle in the meantime.  Called a meeting of police commissioners, have discharged the old chief  of police, and' our new choice is the  pride of your humble Bervitnts iu  Greenwood. Please hurry my appointment. Only this day was one of our  sj-w.pathizers fined by the corrupt government now in power, and if my appointment does not reach here by tomorrow all the bad element will be  driven from our city, the hotel business  ruined, and great disappointment will  be felt by your, most loyal subjects  here. We do not care if you give all  the lands to Mrs. Jimmy Anderson or  the C. P. R., so long as my appointment is rushed through so that this  great board of police commissioners  can transact their business in a legal  way. Your humble servant.

SbC  c  0  Greenwood  Always Ask for  A CASE OF JACK POT,  ####&#*#��(*#�� >!-s#��##wsh:tk-����  Police Magistrate Hallett g-ot a whole  lot of information on Wednesday,  Ignorant of the mysteries of, draw *  poker, he got enlightened on several  terms he was unfamiliar with. He was  at sea. in the matter of rake-off, and  jack pot and dummy, and knew nothing of the ethics and etiquette of the  game. To do justice to the case in  hand he was obliged to probe into such  thivigs, and his decision shows he  probed only coo well.  On Februarj' 23rd, James Kinney  drifted into town from Grand Forks.  He wasn't busy, and he seems io have  had no trouble in locating a comfortable place to spend the evening. He  elected the Windsor, as he had don��  beforehand sought the green table for  diversion as well as profit, and that  was the. origin of a case that occupied  the police court Wednesday last. Kin-  n2Y didn't seem to think he had got all  that was coming to him. He claimed  that a jack pot belonging to him went  to an of lTerT--^nable^t*cr"-persuade"the-  players. or the banker, that he had  been defrauded, if not out ��f his own,  of somebody else's hard earned dollars,  hi* chivalry led him to squeal against  the bouse, and so had Earnest J. Car-  tier hailed before the magistrate for  conducting a disorderly house, implying th.ere.bv a gambling house.  The magistrate went into the caBe  verv patiently in order to get at the  mysteries of the game, and the measure  of responsibility chargeable against  the -jzcused. It would appear, from  the judge's remarks, that the matter of  taking" chips from the stakes by the  house*, presumably to pay for cards,  rent and drinks, was what constituted  gambling under the statutes, and not  the mere playing for the amount involved While he thought four or more  men could set down and play a game  of thaw poker   for   money, and not be  DEALERS IN  9  ft  ft  ft  ft  ft  ft  ft  ft  ft  ft  ft  ft  ft  ft  ft  ft  ft  ft  ft  ft  ft:  ft  ft  '���-a  ��  ��  ��  ��  ��  ft  *  ft  ft  ft'ts*��*a��<nB��������ft!!*ft ��'�����#!���� ffS'ts ������#*�� ��ftft��^.*^wftft#raftft��ft��tt����fteftftft  Just   received .a  fine  carload of   Eastern   Oysters,  Clams, Crabs, Lobsters and all kinds of  Shell Fish  .runi'iK h <** -. err; tn ti<trn m ���.�� -n*** ���; j fetutisam i m  ����m.n��n**����t��'aiiw'-HTTr;*iir*-wt*t^��=r*��fu^  FISH  Einnen Iiaddie, Salmon, Halibut, Kippered Herring  n'jw.-*uw*xuifr��-.��^**4*j*u����^Hftj��a��i(��tsn  ,i��*s*.,  m  ���ny***  T    C  Copper Street  I-  ir ��  Prop  ^g^^ BOUNDAttV   VALLcY   LODGEa  ill    lilt;  111 is CX  ot Greenwood will miss Mr. Ehrlich.  who has been one of our most protui- j "lie-tabli; under the statute, he would  nent business men. and during a rcsi-| reM.'luway set his face againet gamb-  dcuce of nearly nine   vears   has   iK.cllj li'ig as he interpreted the  law, and the  ^identified with   everything  pertaining; dl-,fe;ic!;int  ,havi��^  *)lead    ��fnillV.   he  to the upbuilding- of the town.

NEW    BLOOD    PRESENT  Fresti Interest Taken In the Board.  Makincr Readv for the Associated Boards  DO YOU APPRECIATE  In pursuance with notice, the Green -  wood Board of Trade held a meeting  last Saturday afternoon, principal^- to  complete preparations for the approaching meeting* of the Aaaociated  Boards of Eastern. BritiBh Columbia,  to meet in Greenwood on March 13th  next.  There were not what might be termed  a big crowd present, but there were  some new faces, and those who were  there were intent on work and apparently anxious that the city of Greenwood should maintain the name of be  ing at least alive, if not very wide  awake.  The secretary reported that Mr. W.  G. McMynn had very kindly placed  rooms in the court house at the disposal of the board for the meeting of  the central body, and this courtesy was  fully appreciated.  A committee consisting of Messrs.  Russell, Gulley, Beattie, Wilson, Bunting, Whiteside and Gaunce, was ap  pointed to arrange for the reception  and entertainment of the visiting delegates.  The delegates elected to attend the  convention were Messrs. Russell,  Whiteside, Beattie and Gaunce.  The secretary was instructed to notify the secretary of the association  that Greenwood would move to have  the association memorialize the Provincial government for repeal of subsection 118 of the Municipal Clauses  Act.  The effect of such repeal would be to  permit the city of Greenwsod, and  Other towns, to assess railway property  within the town for municipal purposes.  At present quite a large part of such  taxes are converted to the provincial  treasury, It is not supposed that the  Canadian Pacific railway will oppose  tbe resolution because it would appear  to be immaterial to it whether such  rates were paid into the municipal or  the provincial fund.  It was decided that the evening entertainment to be given the visitora  should be in the nature of a smoking  concert, to which the public will be  invited as guests of the Greenwoftd  Board. The time and place of thia  event will be announced in next week's  issue of both local papers.  The suggestion that the Greenwood  board endeavor to interest the Associated Boards to take action in the matter of the appointment of police commissioners was not looked on with  favor, it being pointed out that such a  measure would involve the question of  party^politicsj^and such action the Associated Boards has steadfastly dp^  posed.  The present membership of the  Greenwood Board is 28, and others  coming in.  HOW BILEANS SAVED  A  FIREMAN  Many a man has escaped perils of  fire and ocean to fall a prey to disease.  Bileans saved Fireman J. R. Flanagan  of Raglan Road, Kingston, from this  fate. He says: "I suffered terribly from  indigestion and constipation. After  food I had acute pain, a sensation of  weight at the stomach, and belching,  followed by a worn out, languid feeling. My bowels would not work  healthily, bad headaches were common  and I fell1 into a weak worn-out state.  What would have happened to me but  for Bileans I don't know! One box of  thia vegetable remedy greatly improved me and a few boxes cured me.  I have now gained weight aud am  quite restored." Bileans also cures  piles, female ailments, anaemia, spring  debility, blood impurities, pimples,  ernptions aud all liver and kidney  troubles. All druggists and stores at  fifty cents a box, or from Bileans Co ,  Toroatft, for yri����.  In the Bisbee, Arizona, copper mines  much of the ground is soft enough to  he removed b3' a pick alone, but it has  been found quicker to loosen it by  augur bores and blasting. The auger  is of the common earth type-with a  fixed wooden handle and four feet long.  The cutting diameter is the same as  that of hand drills, so that, if a boulder  is struck, the hole can bcEnished by  single jacking. For harder ground  single jacks are used, but experiments  i are now in progress vrith the hand  hammer air drills. For hard rock 3-  inch air drills requiring two men are in  vogue. The blasting is. always done  with 35 or 40 per cent dynamite.  New York, with au "estimated population of 4,014,000, consumes annually  12,500,000 short tons of coal, while  Chicago with a population of 2,020,000  consumes approximately 8,245,000 tons.  The consumption of gas in Manhattan  and the Bronx, in New York, amounts  annually to 21,000,000,000 cubic feet;  ia Chicago it ia 12,000.000,000.  Subscribe For The Times, $2:  Stamp duty is relative, depending  not only on the character of the ore,  but on the rate of discharge which has  been found to give the most economical  results. The metallurgist who has not  advanced to the point of tolerating the  low crushing efficiency per horse power  of the stamp mill for the sake of the  extraction by amalgamation which he  can make it yield, is in error at the  very foundation of the trade, says ah  authority on stamp mill practice. If  you are not gettiug your large recovery of gold values insi**le your batteries, there is something wrong with  your methods, or else you ought not to  be using a stamp mill, and your whole  process needs study and revision. It  should be borne in mind that it is not  necessarily the mill man who can put  through the largest tonnage who is  earning the most money. As an example, in a recent experience in California a recovery of 91.5 per cent was  obtained when crushing 0.121 tou per  stamp per hour; and by using the same  screen (0.028 inch diameter of opening)  and readjusting the mill as to drop,  discharge, etc., the duty was run up to  0.188 ton per stamp hour, with a reduction of the recovery tv. 77 per cent.
