GREENWOOD.  ,  Council   Importuned   to   Reappoint  Former Chief Hallet.���Question Not Settled.  The question of appointing- a police  and fire chief was not finally settled at  the council meeting last Monday, but  in the lengthy discussion indulged in  the-important decision was reached  that the two offices should be separated  and that two chiefs should be appointed, one for each office. This was  largely the result of a strong presentation made to the council by the police  commissioners, that the chief of police  should be directly and solely under  then control and not in any way connected or encumbered by any other  office.  THE APP.'.ICANTS.  Five applications for the combined  positions of chief of police and fire  chief were read. They were: Sidney  Oliver an<i Kenneth McKenzie, of  Greenwood; J. H. Ellis and W. J. Phillips, of Nelscn,- and Joseph Squires,  Rossland. The application-of Sidney  Oliver was supported by a petition  signed by .many of the Copper street  business men, and the applications of  those from the other towns were reinforced by numerous testimonials.  After having decided that the two  .offices-be.separated--the: council ;wasnot  in a position to appoint a chief of police, as thajf duty lies exclusively with  the police commissioners when the  chief is appointed for police work  alone. - The appointment of a fire chief  was also deferred as the members of  the fire department had sent a petition,  signed by a committee, asking that  A. D. Hallet be appointed chief, and  the council wished to consult with the  members of tbe brigade before making  a final selection.    - ,   .  A FEW REMARKS.  During the discussion on the question of appointing- bo'h police and fire  chiefs the feeling" of the council was  pretty well expressed.  "The   police commissioners are  determined to make the patrol an effective one," said his worship, the mayor.  "Alderman- Nelson���"Unless    it��� "nt  effective it is of little use."  Mayor Naden���"Well, it hasn't been  effective for some time past. The situation is becoming too serious to put  up with the service provided in the  past.    More people are coming- in+o the  city all the time and a police service is  needed, and needed at once." -  Alderman Nelson���"Twoofficers may  be too expensive." r  Alderman Bunting���"We should  have two chiefs, if it can be financed."  Alderman McRae���"If we can get  the service of two men, without too  much expense, we shoulil certainly  have it. I don't think S100 per month  very much to offer a man, and then  ask hi n to work twenty-four hours a  day, as a man might have to 3o if he  were appointed to both offices."  Alderman Nelson���"The council  seems to have little choice in the matter. The police commissioners, two of  whom are in the council, recommend  that the offices be separated, and the  fire brigade demand -it, so it looks as if  the council would have to do as they  are told."   (Laughter.)  Alderman Nelson then moved that  the two offices be separated, seconded  by Alderman McRae, and unanimously  carried. ThisJeft'the appointment of  the chief of police entirely in the  hands of the police commissioners, and  the fire and light committee were appointed to meet the members of the fire  brigade and discuss the appointment  of a fire chief, and what his salary  would b-.  WANT TO MAKE IMPROVEMENTS.  A deputation, including Alex Robinson and Hugh McCutcheon, represent  ing the Presbyterian church, was present with a proposal that the council  grant the managers of the chuich the  privilege of utilizing the unused portion of Deadwood street opposite the  church for the purpose of making it  into a lawn. Coupled with this was  the request that privilege be granted  to move the aerial stairway leading to  Ihe heights above, a short distance  north, in order that the debris, that at  present adorns the" hillside, might be  removed and other improvements  made. ,.Alderman_Bunttng yjas afraid  that after the privileges had been  granted *he improvements would not  be' carried out. Mr. Robinson as  spokesman for the deputation, assured  the council that the necessary money  had beeno placed at the disposal of the  church treasurer and that the work  would be carried to a completion. The  matter was finally referred to the  streets committee to report on.  APPLICATIONS FOR WATER.  C. H. Archibald was present to request that a .water service be supplied  to his new house now in course of construction. Kenneth McKenzie made  application in writing for the same-  Referred to fire and water committee.  Mr. Skidmnre made application for one  inch of water from Lind creek for irrigation purposes.

The appointment of a city solicitor  came up for decision, and after nominations including all the local barristers, J. P. McLeod was elected ou the  second ballot, and a motion was put  through making his election a unani  mous one.  The city estimates provided for the  current year were submitted and totalled. Receipts', $45,271.34; expenditures. $44,869.54. Thi. land assessment  amounts to $610,685. a reduction of  S8,530 from last year. The rate of  taxation has been struck at 17 mills,  the lowest rate the city of Greenwood  has ever enjoyed.  Perfect weather, a big crowd and a  good program of sports combined to  make the Midway celebration a grand  success. When day broke in Greenwood the sky was overcast with cloudB  and the air was chilly and the youngsters, and some that were older, began  to fear the day would be spoiled by  rain, but before the time came to leave  the sun had cc-me out and the dav  promised to be fine.  When the excursion train steamed  into the Greenwood union depot, with  the locomotive proudly decorated in the  national colors of two countries, an  immense crowd, in fact practically all  of Greenwood, was there waiting. The  coaches were already crowded, and  when Greenwood's ten thousand pleasure seekers climbed- aboard the crowd  was slightly increased, and every  available seat a id every foot of standing room was occupied. To accommodate Jhose who could not even find a  place to hang on the obliging C. I: R.  hooked on several box cars and invited  the people to ride in them, providing  they had a ticket.   ,  A,WARM WAIT.  The daywas clear and fine by. this,  time, and the temperature' was rapidly  reaching the eighty, degiee point and  the crowded cars were beginning to  warm up. Lest�� there might be anyone of a chilly nature, the thoughtful  and obliging C. P. R. had lighted the  hard coal stoves in some of the coach ;s  and as the sun steadly climbed higher,  and the fires burned fiercer, the atmosphere of these coaches became almosl  as warm as an inferno. At ten minutes  after ten, thirty-five minutes late, the  train pulled out loaded to its utmost  capacity, with, people, from Grand  Forks, Phoenix-and Midway. At Anaconda and Boundary Falls fresh batches of pleasure seekers were picked up,  but where they found room no one  knows, but then there is always room  for one. more.        ; ���   -  CLEARED  ONE HUNDRED  Local Dramatic Company Makes Snujr  Sum Over Expenses.  The success of the Greenwood Amateur Dramatic Company at their performance last week was remarkable  not only from a histrionic standpoint  but it was equally so from a financial  one as the following statement issued  by the treasurer will show^  Total receipts for "Between the Acts $150.25  Expenses :  Rent of opera house $20.00  Electric lisrht, rehearsals   ....   5.00  W.

Mr. and Mrs R. G. G. V-hite returned early in the week from a two  weeks' trip to Kelson and other points  in eastern B. C. Mr. White says it is  the first holiday he has had for two  years, and he enjoyed it very much.  ���^    '"Theh^sekacks" T-  The principal attractions of the day  were the horse races and the baseball  games. The crowd was pretty well  divided between the two, though the  races were, perhaps, the favorites. The  grand stands were libeially patronized  though the one opposite the ball  grounds is rather too far removed to  give the occupants the best view of  the games. The following. are the  entries for the horse races and the winners:  Free for all running race.���Garrison,  "Sancho;'- Schriver, "Bay Republic;"  Anderson,"Skipper;" Wancock, "Rosaline;" Allison, "Jessie;" Amberline,  "Roan Jim."

COMMERCIAL HONESTY  "Tliere is much talk about pc~  ". litical.corruption, but vulgar and  "-'���enervating���though- that���menace-  is, it does not cut deep into Can-  ' adian life. The coming of an  alien immigrant population involves" large problems, but they  can be solved. Militarism is insidious and aggressive, but that  malady is only spasmodic and  does not affect the saner mind of  the "people. And certainly the  possibility of foreign invasion,  despite the fearsome bogey-cries  of the jingoes, carries no alarm  fer sober-minded Canadians. The  cardinal evil at work on every  hand, in Canada as in the United  States; is the canker of unscrupulous and dishonest commercialism, the brazen disregard of the  essential principles of honor and  truth in large sections of business  life and by men who seem to be  pillars of the social fabric.  "So widespread is this evil, so  o-eneral is the decadence of fund-  aniental morality, that the most  flarinji instance of business dis-  honesty, involving lying and theft  and perjury, passes almost without comment and often without  punishment. The notion is common, and facts seem to warrant  it, that men who organize a corporation can be guilty of all  forms of dishonesty, falsifying  .

Por vulgar drunk-  ness or pretty" larceny a man  would be blackballed by a lodge,  or refused by a club, or disciplined by a church, or seut to jail by  a court, But the pretentious and  aud brazen offender may juggle  with figures, and rob his dependents, and perjure himself, and  nothing is heard of ostracism, or  of ecclesiastical discipline, or of  straightgoing judicial condemnation.  " It is true, the Judges at times  speak plainly and sternly about  the increase in business dishonesties, "Mr. Justice Clute did it  iu the case of the plumbers' combine and of the bad apple-pack-  0ther Judges"Have raised"  Police Magistrate Denison deals with such  cases with a firm hand. Rut the  impression is growing that certain classes of offenders can  violate their trust or play fast and  loose with, their obligations with  comparative immunity. What  is needed in many parts of Canada sorely needed, is some thoroughgoing handling of offences  committed by prominent business  men. The sending to jail of. a  few financial experts and business managers would be a moral  tonic that would appeal to the  whole commercial world. &  But not by punitive justice  alone cau the eviL of covetous-  ness, of dishonesty, ot disregard  for honor, be cured, Work must  be done farther back. The home  the school, the church, and the  public preys���these great agencies  of education in manners and in  character have a serious obligation and must make good their  claims. Not the frills of education, but the training in character is needed. Simple love for  truth and honest contempt for  lying, and that fine sense of  honor that marked the rugged  Puritanism of a less cultured age  are the primary elements alike in  personal and iu public "life. If  jthese are missed by our youth  there can be no great worth or  sure  stability  in   the   Canadian  type   of   civilization. ��� Torouto  Globe.  Fun for the children.

Hill, president of the Great  Northern railway, revisited the city of  Winnipeg-and at a banquet ffiven by  the board of trade announced that his  projected Canadian transcontinetal  would reach the tidewaters of tV.e Pacific and be ready to transport goods  by the autumn of 1907. There is every  reason lo believe that th- new transcontinental will pass through the  Boundary, and probably .through  Greenwood. Times readers are therefore vitally ��� interested in this great  undertaking, and cannot fail to be interested in the man, James J. Hill,  trho, above all others, is responsible  for the launching of this enterprise.  The following history.of his life by  S, C. Porter, in the Winnipeg Telegram, will therefore be read with much  interest:-  "Jyike a page from fiction reads the  .story of- James J. Hill's rise from ob-  Bcurity.to opulence. 'How to become a  millionaire, or my. progress from a  Canadian farm to command of the  greatest railroad combination in North  America,' would be a very faithful  title for the - entertaining personal  reminiscence furnished by Mr. Hill.  For the first time during his busy career, in which he met and mastered  such keen intellects as J.- Pierponf  Morgan, John W. Gates, Jay Gould,  Russell Sage and other satellites of the  -great world of finance and railroading,  Mr. Hill has consented  to make public'  ' some of the rules, as he calls them, by  which he. advanced up fame's ladder,  but the acquisition of famous wealth  is one thing, and the ��� practical use of  those millions for the emplo'ytnent'of  ��� hundreds of thousands of individuals  is another. " James J. Hill is one of the  great captains of industry who has  solved both problems. Having reared  one' of the .most   colossal   industrial  . fabrics in modern history, covering an  empire with transportation facilities,  giving profitable employment to more  than 100,000 men, involving combined  capital exceeding $500,000,000, he quits  the exciting game "long enough to tell  his life story.'  "'The heights to which James J.  Hill's genius has carried him has not  made him forget his Canadian nativity  nor dimmed his recollection of early  battles with adversity around Rock-  wood, Ont.  "In" "consentin g'ttTme'n tionthe" elements which he conceived had contributed most to his success, Mr. Hill said  he was moved largely by. the hope that  his experience might-be the source  from which some of the young people  of the Dominion could draw their inspirations to mount the ladder of life.  The versatile mind that created the  Northern Securities company evidently  still clings fondly to the memory of  those days between 1838-S8 when as a  ragged boy the young Canadian was  laboriously moulding the foundation  upon which his gieat fortune was to be  constructed.  ONCE AGAIN A BOY.  '^'Sitting in his gigantic office building, looking about upon a network of  steel rails, over which the traffic from  all pans of the world was streaming in  obedience to his direction, the railroad  king turned buck the pages of his life  history and dwelt with apparent satisfaction for an hour upon those days  wjieu he was so poor and so happy. He  traced his way from the farm to the  little old Quaker schoolhouse, the  cquntry store, across into the United  of more days of toil on the farm, and  then to the unknown west, where he  wpnded his way, without a cent, to woo  . dame fortune with such dazzling sue-  cess.  "The strong features of the railroad  dictator softened a.<--. he revived those  . spirits of the past, he smiled in recollection of boyish pranks, and his great  piercing eyes were half closed as the  entertaining story was concluded.  James J. Hill's reverie was rudely disturbed by the roar and whir of one of  his great limited trains from the Pacific slope, as it steamed out through  the yards. He rose from his chair, his  countenance again assumed that alert  expression so characteristic of the man  find the picture of the Canadian  farm  boy had given place to the president of  the Northern Securities company and  the most influential force in the affairs  of western railroads of the day.  "Briefly, Mr. Hill asserts that conditions today present more opportunities  -for young Canadians to acquire millions than when he carved out' his  fortune; that, in his estimation, the  western hemisphere is entering upon  an era of prosperity, in comparison  with which tlie big things of the industrial world during the past decade  will be the merest pigmies, and that no  boy need feel that he is required to  seek his fortune beyond the confines of  this Dominion, since, in his judgment,  Canada will be the center of the in  dustrial wave for some years to come.  WORK AND GOOD TVUCK.  '"Give some rules which have governed me in my life work? I can't say  that I have any rules. I attribute it all  to work and a measure of good luck,'  and Mr. Hill smiled, as if he did not  take the 'good luck' feature seriously.  '��� 'Let me see; this thing of laying  down a set of rules to govern one's  career, or to run back over a lifetime of  hard knocks, and. say just what rule  contributed to my good fortune is not  easy for me. In the. first place I was  born on a farm -a- Canadian farm.  That was in 1838. This is a good beginning, for it means a sound body as  alrule. In other words, it starts a chap  right. That's half of the battle; I  might say it is everything, because a  bad start means a big handicap in the  race. But as far as rules go, I would  say those that have helped me to success are:  - '" 'Work, hard work, intelligent work,  and then more work.  " 'A sound body and a sound mind; I  had both of these, though I left school  when fourteen and a half years old.  and never got time to see inside a  school house again. An education,  however, is indispensable. I do not  mean necessarily college training. An  education comes frequently with contact with the world; studying conditions, life as'you see it.  "'Don't mortgage your future.  Practically, hav ean eye to securing  the benefits of what you earn. -Look  ahead to the point where you are determined to get into business for .yourself. If you-are.not worth your hire  you cannot be hired, and if you can  ���earn money for another you can earn  money for yourself.  " *Be satisfied to start in a small  way. Too many young men want to  begin to pile on before the foundation  is finished, and what they accumulate,  they cannot retain. A slow beginning  makes a permanent business. i  SAVING NOT STINGY.  " 'Be economical, but not penurious'.  This is not a distinction without a difference. It is the difference between  the mind built on the broad gauge and  the narrow. It is the difference between great things and .small things;  batvreen boundless success' that sheds  a generous share of its prosperity on  the   whole   community and a meagre  competency, that distinguishes Jhe  miser from the man of a I fairs.  " 'Have confidence in your own  future and conditions generally. Men  prefer the' optimist to the pessimist.  The bright side of things is a view  that helps a (hap forward. Even if  the worst occurs, a person has more  strength to meet it from having taken  a complacent view of the situation.  When a fellow has put forth his best  efforts, been thoroughly alert, clone the  best he could, he has no room for  worry.  " 'The selection of avocation is quile  important. My experience is that  things are largely matters of chance.  I don't think I ever expected as a young  man to get into the railroad business.  Having chosen a profession, I do not  think a young man is warranted in  sticking to it when he feels that he is  not fitted for it, or that he sees a better  opportunity to acquire wealth in  another direction. I was first a farmer,  then a merchant's clerk, then a farmer,  a laborer, a clerk, a builder of steamboats, a constructor of .railroads as a  sub contractor, and then stockholder  and owner. So, again conies the question of confidence iu one's ability to  discern that which is best for him nnd  to strive for that regardless of opposition. In other words, it is the confidence that enables the young man to  take risks without which great things  can never be accomplished.  PKESENT IS OPPORTUNITY.  " 'Perhaps you might accept these  outlines as the rules which I have .observed thr*. ugh life. The young man  should not make the mistake today of  imagining that conditions are not as  favorable as at any time for the last  century for the poor boy acquiring  wealth. The world is in Us infancy,  especially the western world. Industrial development is just beginning.  Agriculture, mining,'contracting, shipping, railroading, land speculating,  mercantile life and manufacturing  offer every inducement for the ambitious youth today to become a man of  millions. Money is so plentiful the t a  determined boy of worth can borrow  all he needs. Bankers accept the element of prospects in lending money  as well as ability to pay, and there is  uo more promising prospect of a monetary value than youth, ambition and  grit,   backed  by western   intelligence.  Therefore, the way is, if anything;  more easy; that i.s, the-nay to the'top.  The real struggle is at the bottom.  There is where the ranks are crowded.  The fig'-it is very lierce there. When  you begin to get away from the crowd  it is easier. You pass many commercial derelicts, failures and wrecks of  men along the way, but the great  trouble is in getting started up. Everything seems to contribute to hold a  man down until he starts, then everything turns to boost him up after he  has secured a start That is the way  of the world.

The farm  was not very fertile, and my early experience was that of a  very   little boy  - on a big farm. I recall that my father  frequently remarked that he could trace  our family  tree  back  sixteen genera-  ; tions through Scotland and Ireland. To  this I attribute my mental and  physical vigor, I had to walk four  miles to the Quaker academy at Rock-  wood. The average boy today would  think this a mighty hard way to get an  education, and it was. One winter,  arrangements were made by which I  remained in Rockwood. I paid part of  my tuition by doing chores around the  little old academy. I don't think I  studied any harder than  any other 14-  : year-old boy, but I had  much work to  ;.dp,  HAD TO GET OUT.  _ " 'Then the exigencies of my family  required me to begin to  make a return  t. for my living.   That was in the sprintr  '; of 1853, and I began to clerk in a gen-  ' eral   store   at the crossroads.    I con-  Ltinued this employment, occasionally  ��� - varying   it with a little  work on   the  - ��� farm, until I was 19 years old.   I was  dissatisfied, and yet, when I look back  at those   days,-  it   was   very pleasant.  ��� Altogether life is always pleasant in  ;' youth, little matter the condition. But  .'I had concluded to go to the United  r States.  " 'I made up n.y mind that  I  would  have a better chance   in  the western  "��� states, which were then just beginning  to  attract settlers.    Perhaps  I  might  - ..have done just as well in  Canada, but  s- I did  not  think so.    Others remained  there and prospered. I have many relations  today   around  Guelph.    I had  ��� not saved sufficient money to make the  . trip west, so I went over to Syracuse,  : N. Y., and  worked a few   months on a  farm. That was in the spring of 1858.  It was July 4 of that year I started  west; I can never forget that day, for  it was a big day in my life and also a  .big day in the life of the American  republic���their independence day.  "'When I reached St. Paul, a week  later, I practically had not a dollar to  my name, and knew not a single individual here. This was the outpost of  civilization in the northwest then. I  liked it. and I enjosed particularly the  rough, cordial welcome the westerners  gave all newcomers.  WAITED TEN VEAHS.  " 'My progress was mighty slow for  ten years. It consisted of some rough  experience. I was without what is  known as a 'trade,' an< this was  against me. I was forced to do manual  labor. Still, I mingled with roujjh-  and-ready people, and it sharpened my  wits. That was my matriculation into  the western college of life and my education was rapid and thorough. When  I was handling baggage as a railroad  ���employee" in those days, 7 cannot say  that I ever expected to own a railroad.  I did intend, however, not lo work for  another man all my life, though I believe I work harder today thai I did  then, With increased income came  additional  burdens.   I became a ship-  _j builder_in_a smalllway. Thi-5 _was_my_  introduction into the transportation  world   ".'My hours of work? Well, I try to  woik as much as I cm, as I have a  good many things to look after.���.*. Of  course, I don't get up like I used to on  the farm before daylight, though I see  many stories to that effect. I rise at  7 o'clock. I can't sleep after, that, and  : I get around to my office about 9  o'clock. Sometimes 1 get away by 5  o'clock and sometimes not until midnight.   That just depends.  "'But Canadian boys should make  up their minds that they have as fine  opportunities at home today for getting  rich as anywhere in the world. I have  some thirty Canadians here in my gen-  ��� eral offices, and young Canada is  spreading out a good deal, but it is  usually easier to acquire fortune in a  new country than an old, and, in a  I sense, western Canada is a new  country. That is the center of great  enterprises at present. Great fortunes  are to be made there in the next decade.  My final advice to the young men of  th.; country of my nativity is to be  alert, keep abreast of the times ami  grasp Opportunity when he passes,  holding on to him firmly. Prepare  yourself to recognize him when you  see him, too. That is quite important.  Learn this lesson well.'  BIG  MAN'S HOUSE.  "Mr. -Hi'l's handsome residence,  overlooking the Mississippi river.is one  of the interesting sights of St. Paul.  The busy man has found time to fill it  with a rare collection of paintings,  relics of his travels, and the choicest  productions of the artists of many  countries. The president of the Great  Northern railroad is said to ha. e fear  of cyclones, whose devasting work he  has witnessed more than one: in the  west. He has constructed his residence, therefore, somewhat after the  fashion of some of  the great bridges  on his roads���a ground work of steel,  anchored to great' beds of cement,  around which hia splendid home is  built.  "President Hill has an eye single  always to advancing merit", even  though he at the same ��� time advances  his own interests. It is something like  the rules that Carnegie applied in business. It is related that he had more  than once observed the enormous expense of his different roads for the long  lines of rubber hose used at nearly  every'station for filling tanks of cars,  sprinkling lawns and kindred work.  He bought an improved quality of  hose, but the dragging of the line over  the platform surface usually-wore'tt  out in a short time. Away out on a  mountain division, at a small station,  he observed a day laborer filling a tank  of a dining car with a piece of hose,  around which was wrapped an old  piece of telegraph wire, coil-like. He  asked the man what that was for.  '"To allow me to drag it around  without destroying it,'  was the reply.  "The mystery was solved, and the  invention saved thecomoany thousands  of dollars annually. The laborer is  now one of the chief mechanical men  on the Great Northern.  AI,WAYS. AMJRT.  The president of the big railroad is  too alert to let anything escape him.  Examining the operating expense account, he noted the increased consumption of coal on the engines. He figured down the average quantity of coal  consumed by each engine, and posted  a bulletin offering each engine crew  half of the value of all coal they could  save monthly under this established  average. Each engine had its separate account. The first year the company ��� divided with the men some  $30,000. Now it is an established rule,  each side profiting.  Not long t'go, some five years, in a  wreck, a conductor who had been a  medical student, saved the lives of two  passengers who were bleeding to death,  by the simple process of tying a hand  kerchief around their lacerated arms,  making a windlass of a stick and  twisting it around until the hemorrhage  ceased. The president rewarded the  man, and at: once, required the conductors and the enginemen of the entire system to take a course in 'first aid  to the wouhded,' which the company]  instituted. Now, when a passenger  gets hurt on his lines Mr. Hill knows  he has always present several experienced men to render immediate aid  until the surgeons can arrive. The  company spent $50,000 establishing  this system. . For every life thus saved  the. company reaps a reward in avoiding damage suits, to say nothing of  preserving human life.  PROMOTING BUSINESS.  "President Hill is always intensely  interested in the development of the  country through which his lines pass.  He figures that he may carry the  freight of any manufacturing industry  on his line, therefore he aids in every  practical way the industries. He has a  'promotion'department, which receives  all communications addressed to him  on the subject of aid, saw mills, fac-  tores, etc. This department supplies  literature of a highly interesting character on short notice, touching the resources of the northwest.  "President James J. Hill is a powerfully built man. His enormous head is  set off by massive shoulders. He  probably weighs 210 pounds. His eyes,  of most piercing brightness, -are  abnormally large, and are shadded by  shaggy brows. Sixty-five years of  age, his style of wearing his beard  and hair give him rather the appearance of greater age. He speaks with  the greatest deliberation, his mental  restlessness being apparent in the  quick movement of his head from side  to side during conversation."

The baseball games started in the  morning with Phoenix and Grand  Forks on the diamond. It was a onesided game with everything in favor of  Phoenix, and when the last man went  out the score stood 12 to 1 in favor of  Phoenix. ,  In the afternoon Greenwood tried  conclusions with the Midway aggregation, and while the locals put up a good  game at tin es, they went to pieces in  the last inning and succumbed to a  score~ot 12 to 6.  At the end of the second inning the  score was 3 to 1 in favor of Midway.  In the third inning the game turned in  favor of Greenwood. Midway was to  bat in last half and a pretty double  play by the boys in scarlet put their  opponents out and saved any increase  in the score. -When the locals went to  bat in the fourth inning they were de  termined to change the face of things  and they succeeded in tieing the score,  3 to 3. Their success was due to a  splendid hit by George Clerf. which let  two men home and Greenwood" was  happy. From then on till the last there  was Utile change, but in this inning  Midway climbed up and made Green -  wood's chances of-victory look small.  Tracy made a home run and Midway  "grew- hilarious,-" and- - when-the_dust-  cleared away the score was 12 to 6, and  Midway was slated to meet the winners  of the morning game and battle for  the prize money.

Before the  sports began in the morning they  serenaded the hotels, and during the  afternoon they occupied the band stand  at the races and rendered select! >ns between the heats. Many complimentary  expressions were heard among" the  crowd and the boys again added to  their musical reputation by their Midway performances.  NOTES.  ��� A large number of people took their  baskete with them, and gathering in  little, parties by the river banks enjoyed a picnic lunch.  There were 913 people on the morning train, according to the official  count.  Midway is an ideal place for a celebration. There is none better in the  Boundary.  The Siwashs' added picturesqueness  to the scenes of the day, especially the  chief's daughter. Isabel Friedlander, of  St; Mary^s Mission, Wash.  The hotels did a rushing business.  A lot of people were left in Midway  after the train  pulled out and had to  chance a ride home or walk.  The livery men were wearing their  best smile.   It was their harvest day.  The Greenwood band played sweet  music during the afternoon and evening and were much appreciated.  The dance in the evening was well  attended.

The   game   throughout was full of  interest and  the playing close, as the  score of 4 to 3   in  favor,  of Phoenix,  would indicate.   At no timr. was there  any surety that either would  win, and  when Phoenix went to bafin  the last  inning  they needed   just  two  runs io  win, and th:y made them.

Midway   stopped,   touched a  man running to second,  aud  also  put  the batter out on first. It was a skillful  play.

A fatal accident occurred last week  atthe Granby smelter which cost the  life of James Ritchie and seriously injured Foreman Miles Bariett and an  Italian laborer. Ritchie,who was head  pipe fitter, was engaged in uncoupling  a water pipe near the copper settler.  The pipe, .which" contained a large  quantity of water, accidentia slipped  from his hands into the molten matte  and caused an explosion which blew  the unfortunate man into the air aud.  scattered the metal in all directions..  Ritchie -.dropped into' the matte pit by  the side of the settler. He struggled  to crawl out of his dangerous position  ii"d. was.hero'cally assisted by Assistant Foreman EL .

Mr McKenzie is a nativeof the Mar-  ntiine provinces and has had experience  in police work, having served creditably on the local force some years ago.  Several other applications had been  filed, but it had been a foregone conclusion for some time that Mr. McKenzie would be appointed.

The season  is later, and as a consequence, the  trees are not so far advanced in the  early spring, as in other parts, and are  thus less liable" to be injured by the  early frosts. Bright sunshine ripens  the fruit quickly, and the shipments  made have been pronounced to be of  the very finest quality with regard to  size, color and flavor.  "The orchards are free from fruit  pests. All orchards are inspected  yearly, by competent government inspectors who are authorized to destroy  infected trees and to' order remedies  being applied where necessai'3'. All  fruit and nursery stock that are infected are denied admittance to the province.  "Much attention is also given in' this  district to poultry raising, and the increased demand in the home markets  for table poultry and eggs makes this  a profitable addition to fruit growing.
