City Council Is Approached and By-  Law to Be Submitted to the  People���Cost $40,000.  That Greenwood will have another  important industry added to its growing- interests pr nnises to be the outcome of a proposition now being- considered by the city council. While the  present electric light service is considerably better than is said- to be  served to the citizens of less favored  towns in Southern British Columbia,  it is not all that could be desired and  both the public and the electric light  company would welcome any change  in conditions whereby ir -wo^ld be possible to bring the service up to a standard more in keeping with the growing  needs of the city.  With this end in view the Greenwoo'l  Electric company, limited, submitted  to the city council last Monday night  a proposition as outlined in the following letter:  Greenwood, B. C, March 27, 1906.  To the Mayor and Aldermen, corporation ; City  of  Greenwood,  Greenwood, B.C.  Dear Sirs : ��The Greenwood Electric Company, Limited, at  present engaged in the lighting and power business in Greenwood, is desirous of adding to its plant, with the idea of making its industry  purely  local,' instead  of buying power from the large operating' companies, as at preseht.     VV  I estimate the expenditure in the extensions contemplated to amount to  not less than $40,000, to be expended  in the installation of a modern water  power plant of high efficiency at  Boundary Falls. While I may spy that  our lighting system as at present is  more satisfactory than that of many  surrounding towns, this result has been  arrived at by considerable expenditure  on our part by raising the voltage  above the standard delivered to us by  the Cascade Water, Power and Light  company. With our own plant at  Boundary Falls, I can assure you that  we will deliver as good light as we did  when running our steam plant, and I  believe we must all agree that, as far  -as"vOltage"regulation=was-coricerne(Mt  was far superior to our present light.  Before undertaking the expenditure-  of this amount of money, we would ask  to have the assurance of the corporation of the city -of Greenwood that we  will be allowed to continue in business  for a definite term of years, and would  accordingly suggest the following arrangement :  The -city council to pass a bylaw  granting to the Greenwood Electric  company a privilege of using the  streets for the general purposes of its  business, for a period ot twenty years:  the Greenwood Electric company, on  its part, to install at Boundary Falls a  first class plant of adequate size to  supply the needs of the city in lighting  and power units. This plant we wi'l  agree to have completed and 'in running order within eight months of the  passage of the bylaw.  This franchise will be of no effect  unless we carry to completion the proposed plant mentioned.  At any time after the expiration of  five years from the passage of the  franchise bylaw we ��� will agree to sell  out entirely to the city, under the  terms of the Arbitration Act.  I think you will agree with me that  this project is in the interests of the  town, not so n.uch in the initial expenditure, as in the continued payment  of maintainence charges and wages,  most of which equivalent expenditure  is at present sent away from town for  power, and also in the feature of better  regulated voltage.  Hoping   that  you   may   be   able to  discuss this matter shortly, I remain,  Yours very respectfully,  Greenwood Electric Co. Ltd.  E. G. Warken, Manager.  As pointed out in the foregoing  letter, the source of light for Greenwood is in some outside company  which is the Cascade Power and Lieht  Co., with a plant at Bonnington Falls.  The proposition aims to make the production of power a local one so that  the money now paid by the corporation  of Greeuwood and the citizens will not  go to support a firm having no interest  in the town, but will assist in developing what will really be a local industry  even if it be located three miles outside the city limits. The proposed  plant will cost in the neighborhood of  $40,000. Before making an investment  of this kind the company desires to  secure the right to continue using the  city streets, as at present, for a period  of twenty years, guaranteed by the  passing of a by-law and voted upon by  the public. The proposed agreement  gives the city the right to purchase the  company's plant after the expiration of  five years, but in no way prevents the  city from erecting at any time a  municipal plant. It further provides  that unless a plant is completed the  twenty year franchise for the use of  the streets becomes null and void. The  franchise is not exclusive. A by-law  is now in preparation and will be considered at the council meeting next  Monday night.  MANAGER'S iTATEMENT.  Speaking with E. G. Warren, the  manager of The Greenwood Electric  Co., The Times learned that the company are anxious to start work just as  soon' as the by-law has been pi.-- ���  and ratified by the people. Mr. Warren  estimates that the plant can be completed in eight months, and ready for  operation. Should the council and the  people pass the by-law the new plant  would be in operation, barring accidents by January 1st, 1907.  Asked as to the supply of water at  Boundary Falls, Mr. Warren stated  that he was satisfied that it was sufficient and that an auxiliary steam plant  would not be needed even in the driest  of seasons... It is. possible to secure-a  head of 140 feet and that reinforced by  reservoirs at suitable places would give  absolute contro' of the Boundary creek  water and ensure ample power to light  the city. Mr. Warren looks forward to  being able to improve the light service  both for streets, business houses and  residences.  MIDWAY FRUIT LAND  Company Formed to Irrigate Large Tract  HAS $100,000.00 CAPITAL  Will Utilize  Kettle River and Rock  Creek Waters - 2000 Acres  Already Acquired.  LOUIS GREENWOOD.  Former   Resident Dies Suddenly in  California-  SanjDiEGO, Cal., March 24.���At about  7:30 o'clock Saturday morning Louis  Greenwood, a carpenter living in a  lodging house at the corner of E and  Front streets, was found dead in bed  "ih^hi^Whi7^^"^"^^=i=i==^"^1"-^^J^^"  About $165 in gold was found in his  room.  During the night other people in the  house heard Greenwood moving around  and knew that he was ill, but they did  not think that he was attacked fatally.  As he did not appear at breakfast time,  and the main door to his room was  found lo be locked, a friend of his  then entered through a side door and  found that he was dead.  Death was thought to be due to heart  disease or apoplexy, and it stated that  there seems to be no suspicious circumstances connected with the alV-.-.ir. He  was unmarried.  Greenwood was about 54 years of  age and came to this city about'two  years ago from British Columbia. He  was a very quiet man, and had the best  of reputations.  The above account of the death of  Louis Greenwood was published in the  San Diego Sun. The late Mr. Greenwood was well known in the Boundary  district some five years ago when  he was employed by Christopher Wood  in building a number of Mr. Wood's  houses. At one time he ran a steamboat on Okangan ,lake known as the  "City of Greenwood.''

C, April Sth, 1906.���The  Kettle Valley Irrigated Fruit Lands  Co , Ltd., has been organized at Vancouver for the purpose of irrigating  the fruit lands of the Kettle river  valley west of this place. The company has a capital of $100,000 and ifi  now preparing to start work. W. R.  Pillsworth, C. E., who is one of the  provisional directors of the new company and who has been prominently  connected with the C. P. R. irrigation  undertakings iu Alberta, will have  charge of the enterprise. The company is acquiring control of some 2000  acres of the finest fruit land' in the  province stretching west and north  from Midway beyond Westbridge.  These lands are known to be highly  adapted to fruit growing and with the  c'.i nate all that can be desired, the  Kettle valley should soon rival the  famous Okanagan.  divided into farms  It is the intention of the company to  divide the land into farms of various  sizes and to dispose of it to local people  principally, retaining the water rights  and supplying from the Kettle river  and Rock creek , at nominal rates.  Both the proposed extension of the  C. P. R. a^rid the Midwray, and,! Vernon  railway will provide transportatipn  facilities and cheapen the cost of fruit  in both Midway and Greenwood as  well is in all towns in the Boundary.  The provisional directors of the company are Morris Hills, Victoria; W. S.  Buttar and W. R. Pilsworth, C. E.,  Vancouver; Lt. Col. Glossop, Vernon;  W.O.Wright, Greenwood; and A.. H.  Norris, Midway. The head office is  located in Vancouver, but the office,  where the main business of buying  and selling the land will be done, is  located in Midway, and the company  expects to have irrigation system in  good working order for next year's  operations. Mr. Norris, who has been  appointed secretary of the company, is  a prominent fruit grower of this town,  haviuga^largefarm planted-with-fruit-  of all kinds, especially apples. Mr.  Norris has irrigated his orchards successfully and a large part of them will  bear fruit this year. As a result of hia  success English capitalists have become interested and he has been largely instrumental in forming the new  company.

Mr. Brodie, who presided at  the annual meeting- of the proprietors of the Bank of British  North America, held in Loudon  on March 6th, may not be accused  of taking too roseate a A'iew of  the Canadian situation. He is  not alone, however, in recognizing- the two great evils attendant  =up^^tKTiiWusli^if^settlWs^nito='  the Northwest, the, increasing  number of business failures with,  heavy liabilities, ?nd the artificial  inflation of the value of land due  to the operation of speculators.  Both of these are usually features  accompanying the rapid development of a new country, and the  price has usually to be paid in  the long run.  The year's record <-f the bauk  was evidently considered satisfactory bv the proprietors, for they  not only voted the usual vote of  thanks to Mr. Stikeinan and his  fellow officers, but failed lo accept the invitation of the chairman to ask questions, an invitation usually promptly availed of  -where all is uot considered as  satisfactory as it might be. The  earnings for tbe year were almost  ten per cent., enabling the payment of the usual six per ceut.  dividend, the addition to the reserve fund of $97,333. the reduction of the bank premises' account by $48,666, and the usual  provision for the officers' funds of  the institution. That the bank  possesses the confidence of the  people of the localities which it  serves iu a marked degree is indicated by the fact that its principal gain in deposits is, as was  in tbe case last year, in the savings bank branch.  Property Purchased in Anaconda for  Greenwood Plant.  The West Kooteney Power and Lig-ht  Co. have purchased the ptoperty of  E. C. Smith in Anaconda, and are negotiating for the purchase of more  property nearby for tlie erection of a  sub-station for the distribution of  power in Greenwood and vicinity. The  negotiations were started when Lome  Cam obeli visited the city a few weeks  'ag-o, and the Smith property has just  been acquired.  The high tension pole line has been  completed to Greenwood, with the exception of across one mineral claim,  where some slight di fife re nee as to right  of way still exists.  It is evident that the' West Kootenay  company are determined to distribute  power to customers in Greenwood and  vicinit3r in spite of their failure to obtain an amendment to their charter.  It has always been expected that some  arrangement would be arrived at between the rival companies whereby  more power would be supplied to the  Boundary, and it looks as if some  agreement had been reached.  ���The-new-sub-station���will���be���-25x56  feet, outside measurement, or exactly  the same size as the Phoenix sub-station'. It will consist of three wings.  The center wing, which is to be 50 feet  high, will be used as a transformer  room, while the. switches and switchboards are to be placed in the side  wings. The transformers will step-  down the electric current from 60,000  to 22,000 volts. Although the building  i.s to be no larger than the Phoenix  sub-station, twice the amount of electric energy will be transmitted to this  point. The building will be constructed  entirely of brick ar*:' concrete, and it  will require three or lour months to  complete it.  A similar station is being erected at  Grand Forks under the supervision of  .1. B. Henderson, who will ;ils*>> .superintend the Greenwood plant.  Financial and Insurance Agents.

Tlie formation of a Canadian Alpine  club is causing- a strong reviv.'il of interest in the mountains of Canada, and  the following article on the mount-runs  of British Columbia by Rev Dr Herd-  nian, published in the Winnipeg Free  Press, is timely aud full of interest,  especially as the writer is a pioneer in  the province and has travelled widely  among the mountains described :  '"Riiikin has written that at the ;igc  or two his. mother placed him on a  crag-suiuHiit in the nortli of lOnglnnd.  Peering through the roots of a tree,  there Hashed into his infant eyes-the  sight of a wid ���. valley with .slanting  rays of sunlij lit and the gleam of far-  off distances. Then he woke, in that  tender age of his, to a sense of the  vastness and loveliness of. Nature,  Born again into the kingdom of beauty  he become an artistic soul. Perhaps wc  older infants may also see sights and  get some inspiration���will one only absorb into our hearts the glow and vision of (he great mountain scenery of  our Dominion.  Bewildering as our mountains are in  variety and  number, at  least' one can  count upon four main   ranges   roughly  parallel to the Pacific shore  line���the  Rockies, the Selkirk, the Gold aud  the  Coast range.   Sometimes these two latter are thrown together and named the  Cascade.    Another range is sometimes  suggested      consisting  of  submerged  mountains,    their    tops    forming  the  islands and archipelagos off the Pacific  shore.    The  Rockies are the  loftiest,  running up often 1,000 feet higher than  the Selkirks.    Upon  the Selkirk range  however,   moisture   falls  abundantly,  which means many-glaciers  n.ud large  snowfields.-. There are but  few lakes  in the Selkirk;-., the valleys  being precipitous.    The Gold   range  reallj'   includes  an    indiscriminate   number  of  sub-ranges, fairly well llattened down.  Some   of   the   Coast   peaks   rise  up  straight  from  sea-level,' and   in   that  way (like Cheam, a. noble  mountain, 70  . miles-front the month of the Fraser  river) really afford a longer climb than  fr.om the high peiks of theinterior, and.  present views that alternate between a  sea.of   mountains  to  the  east  and  a  sight of cities along the  shore lines of  the  Pacific.     But' the  diflicully   near  the coast is how to  get through the  dense dripping vegetation and timber.  What books are there that 'deal with  Our   mountains?     Th;   li'erature    is  charming and   fascinating.    First, Dr.  Green's little volume published in 188S  ".Among the Selkirk Glaciers." Mount  Bonney    was  his    greatest  conquest.  Macdonald and  Sir   Donald were  his  defeats.    But he was one of the  pioneer climbers of our mountains, and the  mapping of routes, and the  studies of  rocks and of "the  glaciers,  make the  books instrnctive  to  this  day.    Ther.  came   in   1894,  ��� Walter  D.    Wilcox's  "Camping in the  Canadian   Rockies,"  followed by a later edition named "The  Rockies'of Canada."  Very fine are the  _.���photographs:>given-=in-these-books=an(l-  the author is a man   in love  with nature and  with the climbing  of  high  peaks as well as studing in   details  of  peaceful valleys.    In  1904 came out a  book of constant climbs and   frequent  conquests, along  with a good  deal of  the   history   of   the   first    transcontinental explorers���the  anthers  being  H. 13. M. Stutfield and Prof. Collie, and  the  name of the book being "Climbs  and    Explorations   in   tlie    Rockies."  Another  book  of  perhaps  even   more  added   interest,    full   of   poetry   and  spritual thought and  of  long  lists  of  "first ascents,"   named   "lu the  Heart  of the Rockies," was pulishcd hist year  by   an    intrepid    mountaineer.    Rev.  James  Outram.    Then  at  the  end of  the year oaine the magnificent work of  our   leading  Canadian    climber    arid  surveyor, "The Selkirk Range," by A.  O. Wheeler, of Calgrtr3', the book being  published   by  the department  of  the  interior.    His work   presents  splendid  photographs and describes  systematically   the  early  explorations  and   the  present  .survey   system  and  climbing  by different parties of a large array of  peaks, and is to  be  followed   by ma.ps  and charts.    Ono should refer also to a  coming  book"   by   Mrs.   Henshaw,   of  Vancouver, on the  flora of the  moun  tains, and to the photograghs of flowers  taken by Mrs. Schaffer.    Besides there  have  been  many  articles  concerning  our   Canadian    mountains    published  in magazines in   the States, especially  in the Appalachian Journal,   of Cambridge, Mass.  To get a proper understanding ot the  heights and sizes of the mountains,  one must remember that the laws of  perspective apply here as elsewhere.  A small hill will sometimes hide a  large  mountain..   When  you look  at  REPORT OF THE DIRECTORS  OF   THE  menca  Presented  to the   Proprietors   at their   Seventieth  Yearly General   Meeting,  The yearly general meeting- of the  proprietors of the Bank of British  North America was held nt the offices  of the company, 5, tli-Hceehurch Street,  London, un Tuesday, lith .March, Mr. .1.  H.   Urodio ju-e.sidlns.  Tho Secretary (Air. A. ci. W'ullls)  read ihe nuLlee convening tlio meeting.  The   Chairman   said:     Before   commencing-  my  remarks  l should  like   to  express my regrets at ihu absence today ui: one of the directors���Mr. 12. A.  Hoiu-e���who is  too unwell  to  be present.    .Mr. litmre lakes a. great  interest  in   the  bank, and   I  believe   has   never  before  missed  aiu-ndiug   these  general  meetings   during-   the   last   twenty-six  years.    In the lirst place you will wish  me to make sonic remarks on  the balance-sheet     to   ihe    end   of   last  year.  Taking-   firstly   tho    item   of   deposits,  there  is agai'n  an  increase   in   the do-  posits and current accounts  of  ��41)0,-  000 sterling- (��2.xs-l,GiiG), which i.s mostly  in  tho saving's banks deposits, and.  as  you   will   rueullei:!,   if   was   in   these  deposits, that   the  growth   was   shown  for ISO'!.     The  at-tniil   increase   in   our  savings bank deposits is about   C:J.1M).-  000   ($1,S!)S,000).

We  are   pleased   to be able  to  put  a   further   ��20,000   ($97,338)   to   our   reserve  fund, thereby bringing- it up to  .12 440,-  000   ($.2,141,333).     It is  getting  on   towards the half-million���a ligure which  we shall all, .1 am sure, lie delighted to  reach���and   all   saved   out   of     profits,  and   none   of   it   by  tho   issue   of   new  .capital.    IE you now turn to (he credit  side,  cash   in   specie nnd   cash' nt  call  and short notice are more than   ,C(i00,-  000    ($2,1)20.000)  ��� abiiv:--    those    of   last  year, and show an excellent percentage  on   our- responsibilities     on   the 'debit,  side,   these   two - to.-jelhe.-   bains   close  upon  40  per-cent.dl' 'Mir   total  liabilities   to   the   public.

Hills receivable, loans on. security  and   oilier  acemuus-are   higher  by one million  slovling.    The premises  account,    after    transferring    Ihe   sum  of   ,C.10,000   ($4S.GIiG)   from   the   profits  of   the   half-year,   stnmls   at    ��173.000  ($S41.1)33),    which   is    C 7.000    ($34,000)  less than at. the corresponding- date of  1004.    At our last minimi meeting  the  chairman  gave you very full  information   respecting "." the   various   branches  at   which .expenditure   had   principally  been   incurred,   so  Hint   f  need   not  go  over   that   ground   a*4*aiii:    but   I   may.  remind you that he made it very clear  that  furtlier. transfers will   have to  be  made in the future, when he said, "not  because there is not ample  value and  more than ample value in property. but  because we do not.wish to see this account  remaining  nt so  high  a   point."  In the opinion of the Court it  is most  important   that "we  should     keep  our  j premises   thoroughly   up-to-date,   and  with this object in view there i.s work  still   to    be done, and.    therefore,   you  must no|  be surprised when  we l'eel it  necessary   to   make   further   transfers  from  profits iu order  to keep this account down.    Our protits for the year,  after  making- ample   provision   for all  doubtful accounts,  amount  to   ��93,000  ($4f*2,li00),   and   these   figures  compare  with   ��9(1,000   ($-107,200)   in   1904.    The  small difference is more than accounted for hy the disappearance of one or  two  large  accounts   which   had  previously   been    borrowers,      At   our   last  meeting  tlie chairman   referred  to  the  inactivity  which  prevailed during 1904  in New York, at tho same time remarking:   "That   these   conditions   will   not  lie permanent, and a return to greater  activity will certainly be seen, although  I am  not going-  to- venture  to  predict  the date.".   As it turned out. low rates  for money  continued  until  September,  when a better demand sprang up which  later on   was followed by some weeks  of   unusual   activity   and   exceedingly  profitable  rates,   in   which  our agency  fully participated.    Generally speaking,  business   in   Canada  during  1905   was  prosperous,  all   the    great    industries  showing good  results,    and  trade  has  been   generally   active   throughout   the  year.    Deposits in chartered banks increased   over   fifty   million   dollars.     I  cannot  give you  the total deposits for  toon,   but  the amount    witli    all . the  hanks, including- the Dominion Government   Savings    Hank,    was   some   107  million pounds sterling for 19o4, whilst  in * 1SS0���some   25   years   before���these  were   only   about.     seventeen     million  pounds  sterling-.    The   bank   clearings  of  Canadian   cities   have  increased  22  per cent.   The lumber trade has shown  a.   general    improvement,-   the   English  market   partially   recovered   from   Undepressed     condition    which   was   the  characteristic      of      1904 ;       but      it  was    tho    Improvement*  in    prices    in  the American  market that cont: united  most   fo   the   prosperity of  this  industry:   arid' 'prices   still' continue   to   adr  vance.      The  salmon   industry of -British Columbia for 1905 has shown very  good   results.      Tho   catch   was   a   record  one,  and  the prices realized very  good, and the market continues strong.  I 'Many  of the canning companies must  : have done very well in .190.-"), improving  : their .-.financial positions to such an ex-  ��� tent as to  put  them  on a very sound  basis.      Dairying-    continues   to   show  excellent   results,   nnd   the  total   value  . of 'exportsUnder  this  heading for  the.  j year  ended  October  3.1st.'- 190*>, reached  ; the very large total ol' 42 million  dol-  ! lars.      in mining- in British   Columbia  I the appi-oxiniate.estimnle  of the min-  i eral   production   iii   1905,   sent  over   in  I anticipation .of-the, full  returns;   gives  a total* of $21,403,000; these figures show  i an iiu-i-eas." of more than 2 million dollar:-:  over ��� the value1 of  tho output,  for  UiOi���a  difference which is largely accounted  for  by  the high price  of copper ���-���onmared -with  the price ruling in  1904. 'which  has stimulated   production  : of the great copper mines of the Houn-  i dary district.     In the Yukon a further  i decline   in   the  output   of gold   has   to  1 be noticed.     The' Government  figures.  calculating gold at $15 per ounce, show  a total export of $7,110,000, which is  more rh.-iu 2 millions less than the output of 1901. . This is partly accounted  tor by tlie fact..that the summer season was extremely try and good labor  none too plentiful. The future, of the  camp, as the chairman told you last  year; appears to depend chiefly upon  an adequate water supply, and we understand that surveys have now been  made by engineers of high reputation,  who are of opinion that there are no  difficulties which cannot be overcome  in lirin-grhig a sufficient supply of water  to the camp. Should this prove correct the life of the Yukon .may be prolonged. If is pleasing to see the climate of British Columbia being* appreciated by the better class of settlers  in this country, and in many parts, es  peciaHy in tlie Island of Vancouver,  families are continuously arriving, who.  having: small independent means, take  up farms, and seem greatly to enjoy  life. In.*.Manitoba and the North-West  the harvest constituted a record, the  production of wheat in 1905 amounting  In xt; million bushels, and the quality  was excellent, and fetched good prices.  Tlie exports of cattle were 59,000 head,  22.000 head more than in 1904, and 3S,-  000 more than in 1903. The imnniigra-  tion to the provinces' of Manitoba.  Saskatchewan and Alberta is stated to  have been 120,000 persons. A year ugi  your attention was drawn by the chairman to the fact that the number of  commercial failures in Manitoba and  the North-West Territories had increased, adding that ihe total of such  liabilities had not increased in like  proportion, and he gave a word of  warning* against loo great freedom in  granting credit. II is. therefore, with  great regrei Uiat t have to point out  thai, whereas in 1904 tlie failures in  these :���! provinces were 52 in number,  with liabilities amounting io $370,000.  in 1905 they Were 155 in number, with  liabilities a.inounting to $1,324,000. Our  "Winnipeg manager, who writes with a  large experience of local conditions, is  of opinion that while established houses  have added to their means and  strengthened their position, many have  gum; into business of late years lacking capital* nr experience, or some other  essential.' with tlie inevitable result.  The .settlement of these three provinces is proceeding rapidly, as the  iminigT.-ttioii returns' clearly indicate,  and the value nf important farms has  eonsidera.bly increased, a.nd in. the'most-  favored Infinities hr.s now reached a  point where the value compares not  unfavorably with the price ut* freehold  farms in certain counties of England.-  The value of good land has also' advanced .considerably, chiefly under the  influence of purchases for actual settlement;, but also" 1 regret to s.-iy from  the purchases of speculators, which  have been on a. considerable scale, and  will'certainly not have a benef'v-ial influence upon .the agricultural industry. This concludes the general remarks I have to make to you, but before sitting down. I will ask you -o  appreciate that tiie results of the year's  working has not been, brought about',  without, 'hard work by our general  manager. Mr. Stikeman, and his. stuff,  and i am sure you will allow us io  convey to those in Canada and lo our  "London office your hearty thanks for  their continued good services in the inr  terests of the bank.

Temple, because it  is seven miles from the railway, many  travellers think it is only a few feet  in thickness, it must be at least 200  feet, On the other hand, it is possible  that in the early guide books of the  C. P. It. the Green Glacier on the east  side of Mt, Stephen was rated as entirely too thick, said to be in the early  folders 500 feet, which may be an exaggeration, and there were some  descriptions that impiled that our  Canidiau peaks were higher than the  Alps! Here is one way of ascertaining- the standard that should be applied  the mountains: Get first the idea of  "tree line,'" then of the limit of vegetation, then of the slopes of  bare  rock.  then of the glaciers and snow fields,  and the cornices tliat cling to the crest.  Trees run up the sides of the mountains to about 7,000 feet in the Rockies  and about a thousand feet lower in the  Selkirks. Vegetation, in the shape of  shrubs, flowers, moss and heath, proceeds from a thousand to two thousand  feet higher, when tlie slope's are not loo  steep or covered with rocks. The  glaciers in the Selkirks come down  sometimes as low as 5,000 feet above  sea level. While from the peak of a  mountain you get a great panoramic  view, yet sometime from a height of  about seven or eight thousand feet you  can see more detail iti the way of lakes  ravines, valleys, couloirs���aud pick up  some good imitations of Sotch heather  and capture-some gaily colored butter-  fies.  Some mountains have different  shapes in the same ranges, many of  them rising up., in an individualistic  way; in other ranges they seem to  cop3- the conformation one from another. Fantastic sometimes are the  peaked summits, and if a mountain  looks monotonous il is because you are  not studying carefully the slopes and  the curvature of the sides and tiie  whole configuration. The views are  finest perhaps, when a great mass rises  up steadiiy and in isolation���like Mt.s  Cascade, Castle, Temple, Tupper, Big  Chief,  or   the   Three   Sisters,    Many  /   ".

Many have looked upon  the photograph of "The Mountain of  the Holy Croas" near DfcrtVer, Colorado. This is formed by two deep  crack* packed in with snow and ice,  with a background of black rocks behind, (but one side of this mountain  haa now fallen, taking with.it one arm  of the cross). Southwest "from Calgary a different and equally noble  croa** looms up .to discerning eyes; it i.s  on the Banded mountain, and consists  ���of two uplifted ridges of-:*tock intersecting one another, while behind,  from the upper part of the cross up to  the pyramid' pjeak of the summit, is  spread out, throughout almost all  months of the year, a background of  pure snow.  The steeper a inouutain/ is on one  side, the more - accessible it usually is  from some other side. Mountains have  all they can do to maintain their equilibrium and preserve their own peaks!  A ud where a castellated tower or crest  rises up, as on tbe Crow's Nest mountain, and the highest wall of Stephen  and the top of Cathedral aud other  summits���Nature has thoughtfully, in  most cases, thrown a ledge around a  precipice, aud opened up a chimney-  crack just at the perilous places. Many  of the mountains have sent down  ���mall or large rock slides. A curved  peak near Arrowhead threw a mass of  debris into the Arro,? lake three years  years ago, which raised a tidal wave  . that broke the C. P. R. steamer from  her moorings at the wharf, and only  for the cool headedness and good sea  manship of her captain she would have  beehdashed to pieces or sunk. Near  Field, from the slopes of Cathedral  mountain, there are . isible evidences  of a great slide, perhaps second only  to the Frank slide. As for this last  one, I think Turtle mountain was  largely composed of gravel on the side  from which the rocks fell, and some  other mountains in that neighborhood  -.present the same appearance, the heavy  rocks on the surface being apparently  a sort of veneering. There are evidences of slides also in the "ice-gorge"  on Mt. Stephen and in a valley between  Peaks Stutfield and Wooley:-" A little  slope of eatth slid right a.way some  years ago at Maple Ridge near Westminster Junction, and last year a small  hill moved away at Spence's bridge  and buried a settlement of Indians.  What is the height of our loftiest  mountains? Tl.e higheatso far known  is Mount Robson, 13,500 fact, west of  the Yellowhead Pass. Next to it are  Mounts Columbia (12,000), Forbes (12,-  100), Alberta (12,000). These last  . named xt'ountains are 50 to 90 miles  north of Lagg-an. Then come Lyell,  Athabasca and Assiniboine. The  highest mountains visible easily from  the railway are Tern-pie (11,637),  Stephen (10,523), Vaux (10,741), Sir  Donald (10,806), and Bonney (10,700).  ,=ai^Avalanches   .all   from  the cornices  and the overhanging glaciers on the  mountain crests. Iu Abbot's pass, between the steep sides of Lefrov and  Victoria, great masses are often to be  seen, launched out suddenly into space.  ��� Then there is a noise like the roar of  Niagara, and behind the avalanche  streams of snow-dust  trail   down like  .cascades. Climbiny up the deep side  of a high crest yon oft< n find a shelf  of snow and ice extending over your  head for 20 feet or more into space.  This needa cauti.in  :>nd   more caution  . perhaps, when you are rounding peaks  or corners where the snowslope seems  firm but has nothing but air beneath  it. As for the glaciers, they move an  inch or two on an average each day.  Some are steep, others- like the Victoria glacier, near Lake Louise���almost  level. The ice is vicious and the snout  of the glaciers is usually the most slippery and dangerous pnrt. The reason  of this is because the warm air of the  valley lias effect upon the ice, and the  glacier itself is fed usually from a  snow field (reve) covering a large area.  The r've ou the slopes of Mount Columbia is said to include 200 square  miles, and in many places, as near  Glacier House, the snow fields often  connect and combine. In climbing to  ihe great ice-field of Mount Hector,  you mount up to a height of perhaps  9,000 feet and reach a high escarpment  the climate seems tropical  all the way  to divide itself, but the two sides have  passed the obstruction  and come together again, curving right   round the  lower rocks.    Oh the south  side of the  Upper   Bow   lake   there   is   a   three-  pronged glacier on   view,  most interesting and  weird.    There  is another  fairly similar one in the Yoho  valley.  Some glaciers receive many avalanches  of   stones   from   the   mountain   sides  which hem them in     On a level glacier you will find   fiat   rocks  many feet  up in the air, supported  by an attenuated pillar of ice.    This position is due  to their shielding   off the  rays of the  sun.   Streams course  their  way  over  and   through   Ihe   ice-fields,  running  into crevases and moulins, and  finally  emerging from the foot of the glacier,  milky in  color.    This  color  is  due   to  the   steady movement of the glacier  pounding down the rocks it carries and  grinding them on tlie rockhed beneath,  and sometimes the ice in   its slow and  earlier journeys has evidently cut away  cliffs and undermineil ledges and made  formidable erosions aud  gorges.   The  stones taken down by  the  glaciers are  thrown together into large deposits at  the base, called terminal moraines, and  on   their   flanks  are piled  up   lateral  moraines.   These are worth studying  often as to their relative position  rnd  size, giving much  light as  to the receding and melting down of the glaciers.    At the foot of the great Illecille-  waet glacier, Dr. Green and Mr. Vaux  have put bands of paint upon terminal  rocks with dates showing plainly how  this ice field  is  shrinking.    But  some  glaciers, instead of receding, are pushing out  into the timber growth aud  pushing it down.    This holds good of  a glacier near Moraine lake, and of another in a valley between Stutfield and  Wooley  Peaks, where the ice is sheltered  from  the sun  by a heavy rock-  slide.    As you   climb   up the  Heaver  valley   on   the  C.   P.  R., lookiug out  across, you see  a large rangt  of  hills  called   the   Prairie hills.     These  are  probably  moraines,' formed by a glacier that at one time filled ,up the valley,   and   we   may   conclude  that the  glaciers  which   remain   are  remnants  and relics of the Great Ice Age.    The  passes are also  interesting io traverse.  Above the Upper Bow Lake you come  to .i shoulder whence a striking panorama discloses  itself.   On  one side is  is the source of the Bow river running  past  Calgary, on the other side, out of  a cavern at the f< ot of a glacier, runs  a swift stream which is the main source  of the North   Saskatchewan, passing  Edmonton, and even on the pass itself,  which   is   a  sort of meadow,  a little  morass   covers   the   summit   in    wet  weather, out of which small streams  trickle, one to  the Bow,  the other to  the   ether   river     And away  farther  north,   near   Columbia  mountain,  on  the sides of the Dome, 11,650 feet high,  the  snow   melts   at the  foot  of the  glaciers and runs into three different  rivers���the Athabasca.emptying finally  into   the   Arctic   sea;  the   Columbia,  emptying into the Pacific; a branch of  the   Saskatchewan, emptying at   last  into the Atlantic via Hudson's  Bay.  There is another pass  that should be  referred to.    David Douglas, the botan-  ist=r^stood=-i n���a���va lley���bet ween=���two  nioun'ains. after coming west through  the Yellowhead pass, aud these mountains  he   named   Brown  and   Hooker,  and estimated them  as  16,000 to 17,000  feet high.    And geographers have ever  since set down these names aud credited  them  with these  altitudes.    The pass  has   certainly   been  definitely   located  by virtue of a little circnlar pool named  "The Committee's   Punch   Bowl," but  within the last few years Wilcox, Cole-  nian,  Collie and others  have  visited  this spot, and have surveyed the mountains and have found them to be only  9,000 to 10.000 feet in height."

Every act of daily life  that tends to bettering one's surroundings  makes directly or indirectly for the im^  provement of society generally. In all this  the local newspaper plays an important  part, Among its local readers it stimulates  an increasing interest in their home city,  keeping them posted on all local happen*  ings, and becomes a welcome weekly  messenger, bearing bright and welcome  tidings. Arnon^ its outside readers it  forms a valuable advertising medium  making known the merits, advantages and  prospects of the city and attracting thither  citizens who want employment, business  firms looking for locations, and capitalists  seeking investments. In the upbuilding  of a town, city or district the local paper  is an important factor.

On April 1st the Great Northern began carrying the Greenwood  mail through to Midway and for two  evenings Ihe Macdonald stage line  brought it to the postoffice here. The  stage line, however, discontinued this  as"they had no contract for the work,  and uow the mail arriving at Midway  at t��ight by the Great Northern is  brought to Greenwood on the 2:30 train  next day. This is a slight improvement, as Eastern Canada and Amen  o can mail now readies here an hour  -parlicr than heretofore.  Dr. Simmons,Dentist; open evening's.

COLES & FRITH  TELEPAONE NO. 33  MORE WATER NEEDED  A Reservoir on Providence  Creek Proposed  NEW FIRE ALARM SYSTEM  Council Passes Motion to Install Six  Street Boxes���New Power  Plant Is Favored.  The most important council meeting-  so far this year was the one held last-  Monday night and it was one at which  the attendance of Aldermen was  smaller than usual. Those present  were, Mayor Naden, Aldermen McRae,  Bunting, Wood and Mathison. Three  very important questions came up for  discussion and after thorough consideration definite action was taken on  them all. The weighty questions  which the city fathers were called upon  to consider were, the installation of a  fire alarm system, the extension of the  water works system, to include n uew  reservoir on Providence creek, and ihe  granting of a twenty year franchise to  the Greenwood Electric company for  the use of the streets. More extended  notice of the latter is made in another  column. 3  NEW FIRE AI.AKMS.  In dealing with Ihe fire alarm system Alderman McRae stated that he  had investigated the proposed electric  street box system, as used in the large  cities,,and also the telephone system,  as* used in P'loenix, and he had become convinced that the former was  the most practical, servicable, aud in  the end, the cheapest. The system is  "Iciiown^as^the" Gamweliy" and-^as "out-"  lined by E. G. Warren of the Greenwood Electric company, provision was  made for nine street boxes, three on  Copper street, one of those at the Imperial hotel corner, one at the Bank uf  Montreal corner and one near Mc-  Creath's liquor store. The others  would be located as follows: Two on  Gold street, two on Kimberly avenue,  one near the Presbyterian church and  one at the fire hall, for a general  alarm. The total cost for such a system would be about $1,000, exclusive  of labor, which Mr. Warren offered to  donate  to  the  citv.    After some  dis  cussion   it   was   decided  to  use  fewer  boxes and thus lessen the expense.  On motion of Aldermen McRae ; nd  Bunting it was decided to install a six  box system at an approximate cost of  about $700. A by-law to this effect  will be prepared and submitted to the  people for their endorsement.  MORE WATER NHHDRD  The discussion on   the  extension   of  the water works system was led by His |  Worship, the Mayor,  and   U   was gen-'  crally admitted by the members of the  the council that the question of sccur-I  ing   a   larger    supply   of   water   was  an urgent  one.    His Worship pointed  out that whiie the  present  supply was  quile   sufficient   to   meet   the   present  needs, there was not sufficient   reserve  lo meet   an   extraordinary   emergency,  sucli as a big lire; that with insufficient  water an up-to-date alarm system  ai d  fire   brigade   were  of   little   practical  value.    He was more anxious   that  an  extension be made to the water system  than that an alarm system be installed  or even   street  improvements  be proceeded with.  A   NEW   RESEKVOIR.  The proposition under consideration  was the building of a reservoir on  Providence creek and the extension of  the present mains north to connect  with it. This would provide a supply  from both ends of the town and would  insure an ample quantity. It was  pointed out that such a system would  be au ideal one and would be of great  est service and of least inconvenience  to the public in case of accidents. If a  break occm red in any part of the city  only the houses in the immediate  vicinity would be cut off, and the remainder of the city would uot be  affected. The proposed reservoir would  add some fifty ot sixty thousand gallons to the available supply and the  city engineer reported that the total  cost would be approximate^' $6,500, of  which $1,500 would be for the reservoir  constructed of concrete masonry.  After some discussion a motion was  put through by Aldermen Bunting and  McRae, stating that -in the opinion of  the council it was advisable to secure  an additional supply of water from  Providence creek. This will also be  submitted to tht people for decision.  _     CHICKENS   ABROAD.  Some amusement was caused by reference to the chicken nuisance. The  Mayor remarked that several people  had complained that their efforts to  grow flowers and vegetables were useless on account of their neighbors'  poultry. He desired Al lerman McRae,  who is a well known chicken fancier,  to introduce a by law to compel people  to keep their hens at home and feed  them there. Alderman McRae did not  feel inclined, so the Mayor gave notice  that he would introduce such a by-law.  '     NEW POWER W.ANT.  A letter from E G. Warren outlining  the proposed construction of a new  power plant at Boundary Falls was  read and Mr. Warren was summoned  to the council chamber to discuss the  matter. He explained that the twenty  3'ear franchise asked for, as an encouragement to build a plant, was not an  exclusive one. and pointed out that at  "the^end���of^five-years-the-city���would  have the privilege of purchasing the  plant at its actual value, and that at  any time they might erect a municipal  lighting plant. The council went care-  fnlly into the mattei and favorably  considered the project, instructing Mr.  Warren to have his proposition submitted in the form of a by-law, which  would be considered article by article  at the next meeting. In the matter of  rates Mr. WaTen expressed a willingness to agree to a maximum charge for  street, business and residence light.  The Mayor gave notice that a special  constable had been sworn in to enforce  the health by-law and to collect dog  taxes. The liquor license by-law was  laid over to the next meeting to be held  April 9th. The council then adjourned.  VANCOUVER'S BIRTHDAY  The Bier City Is Twenty Years Old  and Increasing Rapidly-  The Times editor received the following invitation from the Vancouver  "100,000 Club," to attend the celebration now in progress in honor of the  city's twentieth birthday.  " The 100,000 Club of Vancouver request the honor of your presence at  Vancouver's Birthday Celebration to  be held in this city, Friday, April 6th,  19%." Dr. A.  R. Bakrk, Pres.  Norman Norcross, Sec.  What is now the City of Vancouver  was first occupied by fishermen and  lumbermen living in a few wooden  buildings making a small village  known as Gastown. After a time it  assumed more importance and was  called Granville. When it was settled  that the Canadian Pacific railway  would make the town its western terminus, the. hitherto unimportant village at once sprang into prominence  and was incorporated under the name  of Tancouver on April 6, 1886. The  population was then about 600. The  name was chosen in honor of Captain  Geo. Vancouver, R. N , who, one  hundred years ago, explored and named  Burrard Inlet, where the city of today  is built.  The present population is about 55,-  000, but Ihe "100,000 Club" is working  hard to double that in the next few  years.  SUNDAY SERVICES.  SPECIAL VALUES  IN SUITS.
