CLEAN   YOUR  PREMISES  City Council Warns Householders to  Clean Away, Rubbislf and Avoid  Polutiner Boundary Creek.  FURNISHINGS  DRY GOODS  Council : met Monday night and  transacted the usual routine of business. Those present were Mayor Naden, Aldermen Bunting,'Mathison,  MeRaeP Wood, Nelson and Sullivan.  City Solicitor Gray acted as clerk in  the absence of City Clerk Taylor, The  mayor reported for the water and light  committee that he had inspected the  source of the city's water supply, and  found that the available supply is being- well taken care of and that very  little was going to waste. In view of  the fact that the supply is little more  than the demand, he intimated that "it  might be found advisable at some future time to discontinue the' supply for  the two water motors now in use.' He  stated, however, that no .action would  be taken in this without good and sufficient notice being given.  Alderman Mathison reported that  steps would be taken to repair Copper  street opposite the Miners' hotel.  The question of the city's fire protection came up and caused some discussion. - Alderman McRae reported  that he had asked for estimates of cost  for the installation of telephone and  electric alarm systems, The local  manager of the telephone company had  been asked to suoplv figures fuid.also  EG. Warren of the Greenwood Electric company. The matter had not  yet been gone into fully and a complete  report would be submitted later. Aid.  McRae was going to Phoenix and  wouid inspect the new system there.  There was a general feeling among the  members of the council that steps  should be taken to improve the fire  alarm .system. Alderman McRae  pointed out that at night there is only  one place in town from which an alarm  can be turned in and he doubted if one  per cent of the people knew where it  was, and it transpired that even some  of thejcouncil did not know.  CLEAN  YOUR  l'KEJIISKS.  The board of health drew attention  to the necessity of householders, and  hotels,=especial!y-,=-cleaisi:ig---=i!pH*!ieir-  yards as soon as the soft weather would  permit. Complaints had been heard of  people throwing refuse into Boundary  creek near the smelter footbridge, and  the board was instructed to' soe that;  the public health was fully protected, and that this he stopped  The cemetery and pound committee reported that D. A. Banuermnn was willing to keep the pound for 1906 provided the city was willing to collect  the fees. This was favorably discussed  though no action was taken.  The question of a water supply for  the cemetery was discussed. The  mayor suggested that a hydraulic ram  be placed in the creek, the water forced  into a tank and a supply thus secured.  No action was taken.  The request of Mr. Rendell lor a  light to be placed near his house was  referred to the power and light com-  ���nittee with power to act.  The license bylaw was again discussed. Alderman Nelson reported  that he had secured signatures of hotel  and saloon keepers which pr.ctically  decided that five would apply for  saloon licenses and eight for hotels.  Four signatures favoring saloons had  been secured bit the council was  anxious to secure another before further action be taken and the matter  will be taken up again ct the next  meeting.  The following accounts were passed  and ordered paid: Laundry, S3.75; E.  W. Bishop, S3.85; White Bros , =1.35;  E.G. Warren, $4; Cameron & Huff,32.40.  Well Pleased.

DECLINE   OF   SOCIALISM  Details Show Largre Gains for the  Liberals While the Other Parties  Lose in Strength.  The Conservative stronghold of Victoria buried party differences last Tuesday, March 6th, and elected to the  house of commons Hon. William Templeman, minister Of inland revenue.  Mr. Templeman's majority over J. L.  Beckwith, Conservative, was 686, and  over both Beckwith and Marcon, the  Socialist, 378. The total vote polled  was 3,728, of .which Templeman received 1,553, Beckwith 687, and Marcon  308. At the last general election the  figures were: Rilev, Liberal, 1,690;  Prior, Conservative, 1,192, and Walters,  Socialist, 336. This week's election  shows the Liberal majority largely increased; though the total vote was  smaller, while the Socialist vote shows  a decrease.  After, the returns were announced,,  the citizens of Victoria gave the new  cabinet minister a splendid demonstration in honor of his victory..'       "*'"���"  The election of Hon. William Templeman to the house of commons is the  people's endorsement of the federal  government's choice in making him  a member of the cabinet as minister of  inland' revenue. It gives British Columbia the representation in the privy  council of Canada she has long been  demanding-.  <��.  WORK IN PROGRESS  Day and Night Shifts on the  V., V.&E.

A new record was established by the  Boundary mines when the week ending March 3rd saw the shipments run  up to 28,590 tons, an increase of 3,910  for the district. The Granby shows  the largest increase, their total shipment being 19,463, an ^increase of 1,295  tons. The Stemwinder comes second  with an increase of 1,156 and the  MoTHeTl^d^  set j imped 427 tons and the Oro Denoro  totaled 660, or more than double the  output of the previous week. The  Providence appears in the shipping  list and small increases are recorded by  the Rawhide, Mountain Rose and  others. The new record is the third  since the new yeBr and with spring  rapidly approaching and with numerous mines preparing to make shipments during the next few weeks it is  reasonable to expect the succeeding  %veeks to establish new records that  shall far outclass any previous ones.

Every effort is being put forth and day and  night shifts are working on several  portions of the road between here and  Molsan. A great deal of work had to  be done here preparing the large yard  room reuuired, but that has been well  completed and the new depot is now in  use. At the Myers creek tunnel,about  six miles west of here, about 300 feet  have been opened. Until recently  work was being carried on at one end  only, but shifts are now excavating at  both ends and progress is now much  more rapid. When completed the tunnel will be some 800 feet in leingth and  will represent one of the most difficult  portions of the road. The, completion  of this work has been dne of the first  objects of the engineers, for until this  was finished little could be.done in  the way of track laying, ahd now that  the end is within reasonable sight it is  expected tnat the work of laying the  steel will start about May 1st. Some  of the other smaller tunnels have been  completed.  MYERS  CREEK BRIDGE.  Another engineering feat of great  importance was the erection of the long  i.yenii-circie 'fc-estle^whichX takes the jh  road across the valley at Myers creek,  approaching within twenty feet of the  American boundary before the curve  turns to the basin of Rock creek. This  will be one, of the prettiest and most  thrilling sights on the road.  There is also heavy work along the  south bank of Rock creek, but good  progress has been made with this all  winter and it will be out of the way as  soon as the tunnel is completed.  Several biidges between Myers  creek and Molson will delay tracklay-  ing as the upper structure of these  bridges is rarely put on until brought  up on the track. Each of these bridges  will in all probability hold up the  track laying for a week, but most  likely theballasting will  be.kept well  up so as to permit of traffic as soon as  possible after the trains arrive, and  after the track is ballasted to Molson.  that will likely be the terminus for a  few weeks; for the bridging of the  Okanagan and Similkameen at Oro-  vill will take too long to warrant them  in holding Midway as the terminus  until trains can run into Oroville.  Between Keremeos and Hedley the  work will be pushed forward as rapidly  as possible. Large gangs of men will  be put on and every effort,made to  rush the work to completion.  MIDWAY NOTES.  P. W.

Scarcely  a day passes without some notice in  the provincial press that such is the  case. The investments vary in amount  and are made in different enterprises,  while the money may come in one case  from one country and then from another. Great Britain and the United  States are the two countries from  which the bulk of these investments  have come, although within the last  few months there have been German,  Freti-.li and Australian capitalists  who have put money in British Columbian enterprises, Eastern Canada is  also coming to view that capital invested here is likely to return larger  profits than could be obtained at home.  While the losses sustained some years  ago by people in Toronto and other  towns in the' East, who purchased  shures in wildcat mining schemes are  not forgotten, people have come to  realize that there are many sonnd enterprises in a new country as rich in  natural resoiwces as British Columbia  is, that will yield good- returns ou the  capital invested in them. A large  amount ot foreign capital has gone  during the last two years into timber  and mills in this province, while there  has been-, more... inclination to risk  money in the exploitation of our  minerals, in this case chiefly by  Americans. Rear estate in the province has also been found attractive to  both British and American investors.���  Nicola Herald.  using it for advertising purposes, demeaning the flag and taking from it  the respect with which it ought to be  viewed.

"] ..  <v ><^fi3��^*  -4. tJ-'-~7~  FRIDAY MARCH 9. 1006.  TEMPLEMAN'S ELECTION.  The election of Hon. William Templeman in Victoria last Tuesday  should be a matter of satisfaction to  the people of this province generally.  In electing Mr. Templeman, Victoria  not only honored the man but she has  honored herself and has lent distinction andhonor to the whole province  of   British   Columbia.     To   be   repre-  sen tedTin~The~f e3eral"cX6i n et~is~1Tpf-i y i~  lege that must necessarily come, to  only a few cities and those who are so  honored usually reap some reward  worthy of their importance. British  Columbia has long sought representation in the list of cabinet portfolios  and she has at last gained her wish.  There are events in public affairs that  call for public expression regardless of  party ambitions and the election of a  cabinet minister is one of them. The  interests of a large city and of a rich  and rapidly growing province were too  important to be sacrificed for the sake  of Conseruative cravings lor power,  and the citizens of Victoria, wilh commendable intelligence, foresight aud  wisdom elected Mr. Templeman as the  representative of the people rather  than of a party.  The results of the contest rshed round  the successful statesman an atmosphere  of dignity and strength. When he was  appointed to the cabinet he held a seat  in the cabinet which entitled him to  his new honors. He might have retained his senatorship and avoided the  turmoil of an election. His bantering  opponents hinted that he feared.the  verdict of the people and would not  seek election to the house of commons.  Actuated by motives that were above  the conceptions of narrow-minded  politicians, Mr. Templeman prepared  for an election to the house of commons, where he could prove his right  to a cabinet position and do the very  best work for  his constituency and his  A few years ago there would have  been no benefit in using large engines  during sinkHig, as the progress of the  work at the bottom of the shaft was so  slow that the debris could easily be  wound by self-contained engines, with  a drum of 3 or 4 feet; in diameter. But  now that the sinking progresses more  quickly it is essential to wind rapidly.  Of ^course safety must not be overlooked, as it is certain to be a serious  matter if anything happens to the  bucket whilst it is in the shaft or when  it is being unloaded at the top. By  means of the ropes and rider the bucket  is steadied during its journey, and  passes up and downthe shaft at a rapid  rate   more  safely  than   was  fo  possible at a slow wind. By using  folding doors many dangers during  .banking are avoided, as the pit top is  completely closed down during the  greater part of the time. It will thus  be seen that although the use of large  engines may at one tiice have been of  doubtful advantage there is no reason  for doubting their advantages whenever the winding arrangements described are installed.  Other important additions lo the  winding arrangements are safety detaching hooks and locked-coil winding  ropes.  The look-coil rope i.s an excellent  one to use for winding of any kind, but  it is especially suitable for sinking  and few colliery managers who have  once used this type of rope will care to  adopt any other form in subsequent  sinkings.

Last week the Times published an  editorial on municipal advertising-  which reviewed some of the work, that  Western cities' are doing- along: that  line. There seems to be considerable  interest being taken in the subject by  other newspapers also. The .Nelson  News in a recent issue treats the/matj-  ter in the form of an interview with  W. T.- Robson of Montreal., ni'anag-er  of the C. P. R. advertising department,  and naturally an authority on the subject.  The first question asked was, ".Should  municipalities advertise ?"  Mr. Robson replied, "Certainly they  should; that is if they are alive to the  benefit of advertising-."  " Suppose you owned a municipality,  would you.advertise ?"  "Most assuredly I would ; just as I  should advertise my-own business."   .  " But a municipality is not a business.!'  "No, unfortunately'^ judging by the  usual way their business is conducted."  "Now, will you please say briefly  just How a -municipality, should adverr  Use?"   . : -,'".-  ��� ���" Weil, in the first place let me'say,  I.have a very, high regard for the local  ..newspaper.  ...Too, -often    its good.

The trouble with municipalities is divided effort; there is  riot united action in any one direction.  If the place  has 'sonic;.exceptional ad-:  * vantages, such as location for manufacturing, scenery, water power, fishing, hunting, or as a holiday resort,  local jealousy may easily inte'ferewith  the development, because the, people  do not see that if the merchants, hotel  keepers, or any other class is helped^  the benefit must circulate among the  community.'Then good streets, neat;  dwellings and stores, all add attractiveness, and are good advertising;  Uitt frequently y<m will notice the worst,  roads and bail (tings rijjht around the  station, where they can be easily seen  by any ont; passings-through by train,  which is something no business firm  will tolerate, if they were looking for  customers'."

I think, every municipality  should hoist the, work over to their  merchants, and call it a board of trade  or tourists' association, or any other  name.. The whole municipality receives the benefit, then, why not put  the burden where it. rightly belongs,  upon the municipality.    The men who  . have charge of this work should have  their printing done' by local printers,  and avoid;the^'traveiing fakirs, who  come along  with  ^special editions   of  write-ups in foreign papers. If you have  an 'attractive-town or village, send  photos and descriptive matter to your  local railroad and steamboat companies. They are always interested in  their territory, and it is to their interest to unite their efforts with yours  to make your advantages known to the  world. It is these simple' tilings which  cost little that arc the most important;  united effort by public-spirited officials ; a reasonable sum of money for  expenditure; some special advantages  to advertise, which if you have not���  well, my advice is to always make the  best of what you have and never run  down your own village or town as long  as you are a resident of it, but talk its  good points and endeavor to mend its  bad fortunes. I notice Toronto had  the opinion of three New York advertising men as to the best methods to  adopt to advertise the attractions of  the city. - One 'of them, Mr. S. Keith.  Evans, spoke of the good work done in  this direction by Dallas, Texas, a city  of'75,000 populution, where only about  ) seven months ago- there was a conferr  ence of business then, the "council, the  board of trade, and other associations,  the outcome of which was the formation of a.150,000 club, the idea being to  increase tho population to that figure  within five .years. The organization  planned the expenditure of $50,000 a  yeardior^five^years j���an d^ado.p.ted^t ha  "follow up" system of advertising. As  a result of'their first advertising, in  four applications tha'y got 1,730 enquii-  ies, and have already secured ' five  branches of *m tin 11 fact tiring industries".

Oue  clever man���Andrew Lanjr,. to wit���  thinks he knows. ''As to her personal  beauty," he says in the I;ondon"'  ���Academy, "she 'remains'*a mystery, if  we do not take a great deal of trouble  in the criticism of the various pictures  which are said1 to be her portraits.  " But .."wlien . we/ Wave., taken, that  amount of pains, as I have done for  my ; apniSenieht',! we', know most 'precisely * what Mary's aspect was at'almost, every period: ofy,her life.' Mr.  Hewjet't has divined -her -.bodily, semblance in youth, and reproduced i,t  ..very well', I think, in Several-passages'  of 'The Queen's Quair-,' though he  probably never saw the. young- subtly  smiling queen of Iyocd Leven and Melville's portrait,' first' brought to the  world's knowledge in Mr. Foster's  work, 'The True Portraiture of Mary  Stuart.' Mary was a tall,' lithe beauty,  with a bright pallor of complexion,  very"1.delicate, "thin* and arched, eyebrows, wide apart, a lofty brow, bright  russet hair, red. hazel eyes, long and  narrow., with heavy,-, white'eyelids, a  subtle mouth with delicate curves, a  beautiful chin, and a rather long,  straight nose. The grace of the poise  of her head and neck in youth is best  indicated in a fine wax medallion (1559)  :at^the_:museum_ at Breslau, uninenz  tioned by "English writers about her/  portraits. :  "Thus we   know   the  aspect  of   the  queen, while friend and foe are unanimous as to  her  fascination.    In   Scotland, and in her English captivity, her  fascination was  almost   her only wea-j  pon in the warfare of lier life.    Doubt'-1  less she used   it   freely, in   the'hone tn j  win friends and allies, but she was not '  a cruel  siren; nor,   probably   was'.siie'  given to the style of  lavish  caressiiitr'  which  does  uot  please one   in   "The  Queen's Ouair.'" ��  .Everything "that Mr.   Lang   writes  about Mary is bound   to  be vividly, in- j  teresting, and   we  need  not apologize |  for quoting  the  following  paragr;iph ;  on the subject of Darnley's murder :      j  " His ways of injuring, insulting and j  sickening Mary had been 'innumerable I  He had been an   insolent  braggart, an j  abject coward, a brawling drunkard. ;i I  faine ant, an incompetent meddler, and  again aud again   a  traitor, before  her  eyes.    He  had  led  an attempt apparently calculated  to  cause her own and  her child's death, as well as that of he-  secretary ; he.had .turned  cur and betrayed   his  accomplices; without  love  of her, he was jealous  of  her : lie was!  doing his best, apparently,  to ruin lier j  with the  Catholic  princes of  Kurojn'. i  while he was alleged to be  planning a I  coup d'etat for   her  overthrow   at   the!  end of 1566, and he insulted   her again ;  by   a   verbal   message   in   the   early]  January of 1567.    This  conduct did as !  much as   anything   for   Bothwell. and, ���;  between   fear  of j   Bothwell,   and   tin.-  hatred, contempt and dread of the mis  chievous Darnley, Mary's royal nature;  was absolutely perverted. She broughtj  her  husband   from   Glasgow   and   his!  clan, the  Stewirts,   to  the  perils of a  remote and defenceless  house iu Edin-"  burgh, and so made his- murder a certainty. Al Glasgow, as Mrs MacCunn  says, she used no bl.iixlishinents ; but  a letter of Darnley's, in the Lennox  iiumuscripls, proves that she stooped  to these hypocrisies m Edinburgh", af  Kirk o' Field.

'���There are only   two  places on the  ��� ���-���'--"gibbe'wliere,'as"far ^as yet discovered,  nickel exists in large quantities.  '.One-  is oh the .eastern : shore  of Australia ;  the other,in the-Sudbury district, a few  miles'.north of Georgian Bay, in Cana-  i       da.    In the latter region, it is said, the  ore is practically inexhaustible.   There  are shafts at Copper Cliff, four miles  from Sudbury, which, are 1,200 feet in  'depth, and ore is still rich and the de-  --posits persis-tent.   Twelve  miles from  Sudbury  is  the   Creighton  mine, the  ^Cbiggest nickel   property in   the   world.  ' ~HenS,' as a resultof the- mining operations  conducted  during  the  past few  years, there is a great open  pit, much  "like those on the Mesaba iron range in  "Minnesota, 600 feet  long and  300 feet  > ., in. width, with  millions of tons or ore  still in sight.  " Both the Copper Cliff and Creighton  .v,i"properties, together   with  20,000' acres  ,   .of  nickel-bearing  lands in the district  -. .    in   which  the  mines  are  located,  are  owned by the so-callea   nickel " trust,"  which has a monopo.ly   on 'he business,  and to a-Iarge extent controls the trade.  \i~\ 'This corporation, dominated by Ameri-  ���'   ��� can capital, is the International Nickel  company,  which  is  a  combination of  ^ L the   Canadian   Copper   company, .the  mining department,   and  its associate  companies of the United States, which  reduce the matte and  handle  the  pro-  ���'duct.     The   company  anuually   ships  from   its   Canadian    properties    from  14,000,000 to 16,000,000 pounds of nickel  ������  matte.      jt   -owns   the   largest   nickel  smelter  in   the  world,   and it controls  "'   the best   known   process of getting the  nickel out of the matte after the latter  .conies.from the smelter.  "The Canadian Copper company,  first organized to produce copper, was  launched by Cleveland, Ohio, men in  1886, among the incorporators being  Senator Henry B. Payne. The Canadian ���-Pacific road -had- laid bare the  nickel deposits several years before,  but no one had looked upon   the ore as  .nickel, and it was considered valuable  only-for the copper it  contained.    The  ���Ohio company, capitalized at $2,500,-  "' 000, opened the mines at Copper Cliff.  ,'/. It sent part of its copper to New Jersey for refining, and a portion of the  product, to Wales. The New Jersey reduction   works  looked upon the nickel  ' Mechanical; Ventilation of mines is  becoming more general, and is accomplished by nieans of various types of  fans, either exhaust or force fans Regarding the particular advantages of  one systenrover the other depends entirely on ^conditions and the intelligence of the.man behind the machine ;  this, of course, applies to machinery of  all descriptions. The exhaust or  vacuum system possesses advantages  over the pressure or plenum system,  especially in deep mines or dangerous  workings where gas is likely to be  found. This system keeps the mine  below atmospheric pressure; should  the motor or fan become disabled from  any cause, the increasing pressure of  the atmosphere would hold the gases  back, and thus eliminate one of the  most dangerous conditions���a sudden  rush of gas at a time when air is not  circulating through the mine. The  pressure system would cause a fall in  the mine: pressure if the fan dr motor  stopped, hence would allow the gases  to rush out and fill the air passages  with an explosive mixture.  as valueless and permitted it to run off  with   the   slag.    The  Wales   smelters  paid only for the-'copper and retained  ���   '   the' nickel   for   their'  -own   .financial  .'    'benefit..  It..was not long, however, be-  ''    fore   the   Canadian' Copper   company  came to the conclusion   that the copper  , -,: -. was not -the. most  valuable  portion of  ���";��� .the ox'e; and since then, the  nickel has  ���- '*.*-��� been the principaHtem of .profit,'-.  .'..pi-j 7, ''THe smelters at.

In  a new country people are working dally  for the upbuilding of town, city and dis^  trict, and for the improvement of the con*-  ditions under which men and women are  called upon to live. 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 oh all local happen/  ings, and becomes a welcome weekly  messenger, bearing bright and welcome  tidings. Amonv 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,  BOUNDARY CREEK   TIMES  C= The Boundary Creek Times aims to, do  �����: its full and complete share in the upbuild/  S�� ing and improvement cf Greenwood and  S~ the Boundary  district.

Thin elongated lenses  or beds of reddish sand, called ruby  sand, the color of which is due at times  to small grains of red garnet and at  times to iron oxide, occur throughout  the pay gravel and often contain so  much gold that it can easily be detected, even in careless handling. Mica  schist, in which there are occasional  thin limestone beds, forms the true  bedrock, but the so-cailed ."bedrock"  on which the gold lies is sometimes tlie  schist, sometimes a clay streak, and in  one place it is gravel cemented with  calcite deposited by 'circulating waters  Part of the gold is fine, bright and  flaky, but pari of it is coarser and contains many nuggets worth five and  ten cents apiece and occasional ones  worth several dollars.  One important result of the Little  creek discoveries is that they have led  to more active prospecting in the  tundra gravels. It has been known for  some time that a small amount of gold  isjalmost always present there, but the  occuarence and position of. any other  beach line back of Nome can only be  determined by actual investigation, jt  is safe to predict that the Nome tundra  will be the scene of more extensive  operations during the present winter  tha!n any previous year.���The Mining.

Of the many things  which they will report concerning gold  mining in the Nome district nothing is  more likely to appeal to popular interest than their description of the  strike on Little creek.  . It was a little over a year ago���in the  fall of 1904���that the productive claims  on Little creek*first came into prominence. Since then they have yielded  nearly one and a half million dollars.  Much the greater part of the gold taken  "out came from four claims located  within an area little gteater than one-  tenth of a square mile.  Little creek is a tributary of Snake  river, at the mouth of which Nome is  situated. The Bonanza claims of 1904-5  are near the tracks of the Nome Arctic  railroad, ouly three miles north of  Nome. The gold deposits He deep,  bhafts have been sunk as far asSOfeit,  but the average workings are between  30 and 35 feet below the surface.  Frozen muck aud moss, vatyiug in  thickness from Y.\ to 23 feet, form a  heavy covering for the gold bearing  gravels. Some of the grav��-ls are apparently well washed beach sands,  others were wtchout doubt deposited by  streams. Beds containing boulders,  sons of which weigh a ton, frequently  top the workable gravels and are a  constant source of danger in mining,  especially during the summer months,  when the roof is weakened by thawing.  These boulders occur sometimes on  bedrock and are sometimes found in  the muck that overlies the gravels.  Nearly all the deposits, from surface  to bedrock, carry gold, but the rich  graveis are found well down. In some  places they rest directly on the schist,  in other places they rise to a height of  five or six feet above it.

President of the Company  Finds Things in  Good Shape.  -Mark F. Madden of Chicago  has been a familiar figure around  Greenwood for some  days.    His  ... old friends are pleased to see him  and new ones find pleasure in his  genial acquaintance.. Mr. -Madden, who is well known as the  president of the Providence Mining company, is a native of Canada, born in Ontario, a:: few niiles  east of Toronto. He is one of  the many Ontario boys who left  the farm at home to seek their  fortune in the growing city of  Chicago, and like some others he  he has been successful. He is  also one of the many other Canadians who in these latter days of  Canadian prosperity return with  their American wealth to develop  the rich resources of their native  land and here again he has been  successful. Mr. Madden came  to Greenwood. to examine into  conditions at the Providence mine  and he has found everything  most satisfactory. Work is being  continued along the usual lines in  charge of John Angrignon, who  is superintending the work in the  ���absence of P. J. Dermody, who  is now looking after his ranch  at the coast. Mr. Dermody is  expected back-to take charge in a  few weeks.  i . i( ;real' "estate business.  .':, Ih-'.Chicago;. Mr.'   Madden   is  : known- as a- real estate broker and  an influential .member of the  board of trade. His operations  have not been  confined either to  ' Chicago or the American states,  but they have been  extended far'  " into the Canadian Northwest. A  large tract'; of-prairie- land' has  been secured oil the' main" line of  the Canadian Northern'' railway,  stretching in alternate sections  from the Quill plains' in central  Saskatchewan almost to the  boundary of . Alberta. In discussing his real estate as well as  his mining operations Mr. Mad-  . den   adheres   to   a . conservative  ..statement of., facts, and he consistently discourages colored statements that that tend to harmful  boosting. His descriptions pf his  of hisland holdings iri the West  were modest and tame and tended  to underestimate -their real value  ~~ but"~to"~one 'familiar-with- real  estate conditions in the Northwest they represented extensive  tracts of fertile lands whose values  are more*enduring than even those  - of a gold mine.   Mr. Madden will  be.iu the city for some weeks be-  . fore returning to Chicago.  Whiteside,  who  expressed   the   senti  ments of  all  present   in   a  few   well  chosen words. ��� Mrs. Sutherland made  a  brief reply,   heartily   thanking   her  friends for their kindness.  The evening was most pleasantly  spent in games. and music Mrs-  Sutherland won the book contest and'  Mrs. Bishop was awarded first prize  for naming most of the object.vin the  "Art Gallery." Miss Whiteside, Mrs.  S. Oliver and others contributed to  the musical programme. A dainty  supper was served, after which the  g-uests departed wishing- Mrs, Suther-  a safe journey.  -    A BRIGHT FUTURE.  Eastern Capitalist Has Faith  in Greenwood.  Y. P. Buck of Sherbrooke, Quebec,  is staying- at the Imperial. Mr. Buck  is a paper manufacturer and has been  identified with that industry for a  number of years. He is also interested  in Greenwood mines and is here inspecting- his claims. None of them are  being worked at present but if prospects warrant Mr. Buck will be^in  operations and develop his properties.  It is five years since he visited Greenwood last, and he finds a big difference  in the appearance and activity of the  city and district.' ��� He believes ��� Greenwood has a bright future .ahead and  expects to see marked development  along all lines. .Mr. Buck will be in  town for several weeks.

To  the careless ones, their condition  serves them ri^ht, but to the man who  is ambitious and willing to learn,  there are many schools of window  trimming where he can gain a great  deal of useful information and valuable powits with, but little expense  which would, without a doubt, increase  his patronage and place him among  the successful.

E. V. Bodwell,'  K..,C.,' and W. A. MacDonald, K. C,  appeared for the city, and A. H. MacNeill, K. C, and R.'S. Leiinie fur the  power company. Immediately upon  the rendering of the court's decision  MacNeill, K. C, applied for and obtained leave to appeal to the privy  council direct. This means that v> hile  a temporary settlement has been  reached an   absolute  settlement  is by  no means assured.  The case arose out of the action  commenced by the West Kootenay  Power and Light company on May  10th last to restrain the'City of JJol.sou"  and their contractors. D. McBeath and  W.

During November 'further evidence was,secured by the city and the  case carried to.the full court, with the  result that the decision just handed  down by Chief Justice Hunter-'means  a victory for the City of Nelson.

TOWN TO TICS  Duncan Mcintosh returned last Monday from his two months' trip to Victoria where he and Robert Wood and  Ralph Smailes have been fighting the  case of the Midway and Vernon railway. When seen by the Times on  Thursday Mr. Mcintosh was reluctant  to: discuss the Midway and Vernon  question, because there remained one  small but important item to finish be-  '.fore the case was completely won. All  familiar with the case know that Mr.  Mcintosh went to Victoria to prove to  the government that the Midway and  Vernon were entitled to the financial  ���assistance at one time pledged by the  govern men ti'and up to the time of his  departure the mission had been attended with success. The only thing  still to be done was to prove that work  was started by a certain date and that  the position: of the company is perfectly bona fide. These details are in  the hands of Messrs. Wood and  Smailes.  WII.I. PAY  AT.T.
