The notable progress made  lu the  development of Franklin camp district  last summer was a forerunner of the  still larger doings which  will be witnessed during the present year up the  North Fork of the Kettle  river, says  the Grand Forks Gazette.   An account  of the camp is given. by Lewis Noble  of Denver, who recently returned from  a trip there accompanied with George  McLeod.   Mr. Noble is one of the foremost mining and geological experts in  th'j United  States, and a man  whose  experiences have carried' him through  the big mining camps of -South Af rica,  Alaska and the United States generally.    He was specially struck with the  outcropping   of   mineral   all   through  the. North   Fork   country   and   made  careful  examinations of   Ihe  leading  properties.'    The   formation    of   the  .country Mr. Noble considered extremely  favorable-for the existence of extensive ore bodies, and sufficient mineral  showings existed to warrant the exploitation of the district by, big companies who could do development work  ou a large scale. Apparently Mr. Noble  doea not believe in cash  payments on  undeveloped "properties.     He -believes  that the  proper  course, and the best  course, even for the owner of the property, is to give those who have the necessary   capital a  reasonable time   in  which   to   explore    and    develop   the  claims on a scale commensurate with  tne surface indications, and that working on  this  principle the new camps  throughout the country would be more  rapidly brought to the front and the  really meritorious properties would receive justice in a far shorter time.  b. c. copper eo. ..;  George McLeod states that he has  turned ov ,r all the bonds on Gloucester  camp properties in which he is interested to the B. C; Copper company, and  thougrrit is premature to make definite  on the I athfiuder, and John Rogers,  who is superintending the work for tbe  Granby company, is bending all his  energies toward locating the size and  direction of the ore bodies.  FRA.NKI.IN TOWNSITE.  With all tHis activity the time would  seem ripe for the inevitable townsite,  and as a matter of facta well situated  one will be placed on the market within 30 days. Mi. McLeod, who is heavily interested in the project, has succeeded in incorporating a company  known as the Franklin Townsite Co.],  Ltd., with a capitalization of $20,000.  The land is situated in the heart of the*  mineralized district of th'e ur per North  Fork, lying on the west batik of the  river, and within easy i*eich~ of the  principal properties. , The surrey i.s  practically completed, and by the middle .of May the streets wiil be" cleared  and maps of the townsite published.  The government road will be completed  to this point by the first of August, and  the railway survey goes right through  the townsite. It is the intention of the  company to erect a portable sawmill in  the near future as much good timber is  available just across the river. A.  Erskine Smi.th & Co. will act as town-  site agents for the company  Take it all around prospects never  looked so bright for this important section, and its speedy expansion will  mean much for Grand Forks.

Diamond Falls In a Dizzy Faint at  Cabin boor.  An'accident of a rather mysterious  character occurred last Saturday to  William Diamond, a wood cutter for  the Providence Mining Co., when h��  fell at his cabin door^-- severely, cutting  his head and necessitating;hi*removal  to the hospital. It seemsthat'Diamond,*  who is-a man of somefiO.years-of age,'  and who lives alone 'in axabin~on- the  Diamond Fractional mineral claim by  Providence creek, had not been feeling  well for some days, and on Saturday  about 11 a. m. he took a dose of medi-:  cine which brought on a spell of dizziness, causing him to fall, striking his  head on a rock at the entrance to his  cabin. The shock was severe enough1  to render him unconscious and how  long he lay there is unknown, but  when found by J. MacMullen, another  employe of the mining company, at 2  p. m., hehad dragged.himself into the  cabin and was lying on the floor in a  pool of blood.

He wa��  removed to the hospital, where his injuries were carefully dressed.  A peculiar circumstance connected  with the affair is that no blood was  found on the stone *un which Diamond  claims he fell and struck his head, but  he may have dragged himself into the  cabin before the blood began to now  freely and then have fainted. His injuries, however, were not dangerous,  and he has almost fully recovered from  the t fiFects of the shock.  .: The long looked for improvement.in  the mail service has at last been^ inaugurated and the change is much  appreciated by business men especially.  Sometiu'e ago the Great Northern  started carrying the American, eastern  Canada and coast mail to Midway and  for two nights the Midway stage  brought it to Greenwood and citizens  received their mail several hours  earlier than had been possible befoie.  This excellent service was, not maintained however, because the stage line  had no contract for the work and the  mall had to lay over in Midway and be  sent to Greenwood on the 2:30 train  next day. A contract _ however has  been arranged and the mail is now  brought from Mir.way on MacDonald's  stage, arriving here about 8 p. m.  One of the great advantages of the  new syetem is that letters can now be  posted at 7 a. m; for American points  and in a few hours are oh their way to  thiir destination by Great Northern.

Turnout for tbe Eizhty-Seventti  Anniversery.  Boundary Valley Lodge No. 38,1. Q.  O. F��� celebrated the 87th anniversary  of Oddfellowship last Sunday by attending the evening service in the  Presby'erian church. Upwards of a  hundred members turned out, making  a fine procession, headed by the city  band in their scarlet uniforms. W. B.  Fleming as master of ceremonies was  in charge of the parade and handled  his men with the ease and precision of  a veteran. They occupied the center  chairs and their regalia lent color to  the large assemblage that filled the  church.  R.ev. M. D. McKee, aa ehaplain of  the order, delivered the sermon, and in  the course of his remarks dvrelt much  on the fact that the principles uf Odd-  fellowship and of Christianity were  identical. He also referred to the high  position the order holds among the  fraternal societies of the world and he  congratulated the members on th*  splendid record that had been achieve*  ftnd upon ita present prosperity.  G. Clark, one of the charge wheelers  working at Boundary Falls smelter,  met with an accident Tuesdav, spraining his ankle and otherwise injuring  his foot. He was removed to the Sisters' hospital for treatment.  Philip Moore, an employee of the  B. C. smelter, met with a slight accident Tuesday while unloading a car of  lumber. In some way he missed his  footing and fell, receiving a severe  shaking up, necessitating his removal  to the hospital. His condition is not  at all serious.  BOUNDARY FALLS NOTES  Work at the Boundary Falls smeller  is going ahead smoothly and the usual  amount of ore is being reduced daily.  The new spur track has been completed  and is proving a great convenience for  the handling of the matte. The British Columbia Construction and Distributing company, formerly known as  the West Kootenay Power and Light  company, is surveying for their power  line from the Anaconda sub station to  the smelter, and the line will be completed by the time thecompany is ready  xo distribute power, BOUNDARY   GREEK  ATALE OF HARDS  ji)  George McKenzie Has Terrible Experience.  IN THE COLD,WILD NORTH  Both Feet Frozen ���Takes Scurvy.  Weeks without Decent Care.   Almost Dies from Exposure.  It is not often that fiction relates  such a tale of hardship and suffering  as'that which hiis just co.mse from the  wilds of Northerr British Columbia.  From the borders of the gres.t "Unknown Land" of the north, has come  details of a perilous journey on snow  shoes, of crippling frost bites, of weeks  of lone suffering and loathsome sickness, und finally of a desperate journey, fraught with difficulties and dangers that almost cost the life of a brave  prospector ere at last, after ���������month's of  torture, he'found succor and relief at  an outpost of civilization.  Such is a brief outline: of'the hardships of George McKenzie, well rer  membered as the driver of the West  Fork stage, and at one time associated  with George Guys in business at West-  bridge.  A FAMOUS TRAVKUvBR.  It will be remembered bv most of the  ��� Times readers that Mr. McKenzie first  gained fame as a tireless traveller aud  intrepid explorer by his ���memorable  trip of 440 miles, on snow-shoes, from  his camp on Omenica river, west of the  Peace river country, and on- the very  frontier of the unexplored 'north  country, to Port Essington, at * the  mouth of the Skeenariver, on his way  back to visit friends hi Greenwood and  vicinity. His accounts of that trip  were published in the leading papers  of Canada and in some of the American papers. ' ��� '���  RETURNS TO THE NORTH.  Two years ago,* in cotnpan3' with  Dan Sullivan and a Mr. Thone, he returned to his camp on the Omenica  river, which is 40 miles north of Man-  son creek, a noted placer mining district. While there he met Indians Who  informed him that in the great "Unknown Land" to the north there was  lots of "yellow stuff," and he decided  to penetrate the "unknown" and see  for hin self. Accordingly he started'  last autumn on a journey fa rther north.  He found the country almost a contin-.*  uous stretch of marsh, stream and lake,  most difficult for travel and dangerous  to life and limb, His trip, however,  was not without results, for he discovered rich placer deposits that went 20  cents to the pan. He had penetrated a.  distance of about 100 miles and would  have proceeded further, but the nature  =of the-country^made^it-irnpossiblerarid-  he returned to camp to await the coming of winter, when he would return  on snowshoes and cross the lakes and  rivers on the ice.  MAKES ANOTHER STAKT.  On the 13th of January he again  started with his pack for the scene of  his earlier explorations. The weather  was bitterly cold. The thermometer  registered 65 degre-'s below zero and  the snow was deep. He had covered  about half thi distance when the intense cold froze both his feet and being unable to get relief, he decided to  return to camp, so leaving his pack,  he started on his return journey, reaching his camp in an almost exhausted  condition.  The camp had been left in caie of  a fellow prospector, Charles Newman.  When Mr. McKenzie left Greenwood  with his two companions. Sullivan aad  Thone. they had taken with them a  well stocked madicinechest. This was  taken care of by Sullivan, who was  camped four miles distant. McKenzie  and Newman had no medicines in their  cabin, and there was nothing at hand  to relieve the unfortunate man's intense sufferings. Newman did what  he could to care for Mi. McKenzie,  cooking food and dressing his frozen  feet, bi\t for some unexplained reason  he refused all the latter's requests to  go to Sullivan's camp for medical supplies.  TAKES scurvy:  For eight weeks the suffering man  lay helpless without relief, subsiding  on salt meats until a severe attack of  scurvy added to his misery: At last  an Indian happened to visit the camp,  and the untutored savage, responding  to the dictates of humanity," volunteered to go to Sullivan's camp and  bring assistance. Mr. Sullivan immediately came to the relief and found  the well nigh exhausted  man  in a ter  rible condition.    He was'so  weakened  ��� i-,ai he was unable lo turn in his bed.  'llic .scurvy had wrought its effects and  mx of his leeth had loosened and drop  pud from their sockets, while the other*  were all rattling in his shrunken gums.  Mis feet were literally decaying and  ill" flesh was dropping from ihe toes.  Mr. Sullivan did all in his power to  relieve ihe poor man's sufferings, but  it was too late, and his simple skill was  usiequal to ihe task. It was case demanding extreme measures, and  ���hough they were upwards of 200 miles  from tho lira rest hospital at   Hazelton,  ��� -' r.*;i-. ���Veid-.-d  tliat  the  only  hope lay  .i'ipc'eily removal.  STARTS FOR   l-TAZEWON,  Sullivan took charge of the trip, and  with Mr. Thone and two Indians they  started with a dog team about March  25th for Hazelton, on the Skeena river.  McKenzie was too weak to sit* up or to  h.iid himself onto the sled, so he waa  placed on a'stretcher and las'ied to the  sled. He began to think that relief  would soon be reached and that his  sufferings would soon be ended, but  the.misfortunes that had brought him  to a condition of helplessness were destined to follow him to the. last. The  ride from his camp to Hazelton waa  one of trying" adventure. The dog  train was wild aud almost unmanag-  ahie. In 'writing to his friends he  states that if the dogs broke from  their Indian guides and ran away once  they must have done so a dozen times.  There, lashed to the sled, he vn s  dragged at a flying pace over the rough  trail, the sled bumping against fallen  logs, bounding over dangerous places  and at times half capsized, with the  half senseless man dragging in the  snow. Several times, when night  came, de despaired of surviving until  morning, and for the last twenty miles  of that terrible journey he was too  weak to tide on the sled, but had to be  carried on a stretcher between the two  pack .horses.  o  ���.REACHES CIVILIZATION.  o . ���    . -;  After eleven days of exhausting adventure the party reached Hazelton  about April 5th, where Mr. McKenzie  was placed in the hospital and ever3'-  thing cone to help him, and where he  is   now   slowly   recovering   from   hi��  wonderful experience.  It was from there that he wrote his  brothers, Kenneth McKenivie of Greenwood, and John of Rock Creek, giving  details. He states in his letters that  the doctors had found it necessary to  amputate one of his toes, but there  were hopes of saving the others. From  several of them the flesh had entirely  disappeared, but every effort was being made to induce it to grow on again.  Mr. McKenzie is a man of most mugged constitution and his years of experience in the wilds of the north has  inured him to the most trying hardships. Few men could have passed  through half what he has done anil  survived tb tell the tale,, and his abilities to withstand such a prolonged  period of exposure and sickness is n  testimony to the powers of human  endurance.      - '  SCHOOL REPORTS.

HOT SHOTS FOR FOSTER  Riddles Opposition Members on a Subject on Which They Had Attacked  the Government.  In the Dominiou parliament much  time has been given up of late to a discussion of the" North Atlantic Trading  company contract. Several members  on both sides of the house waxed eloquent while debating the matter, but  none made such an impression as the  member from Greenwood. Last session Duncan Ross made a name for  himself and his constituency, and  again last week he carried off honors  that has made him a favorite among-  the friends of the government everywhere. The Toronto Star tells of the  speech in a humorous vein and says:  "When Parliament will hear the last  of this North Atlantic Trading company matter is a mystery of the dim  aud misty hereafter.  "The Opposition have fastened upon  it, their busy artificers are striving to  transform it into a campaign cry. From  this distance it looks as though the defunct 'Old Flag' cry that rati through  the country in so many campaigns  would be succeeded by a slogan manufactured out of the North Atlantic  Trading company contract. The Opposition steadfastly iefuses to see in it  anything but a monster fraud and  mgraft.J,roJhj;niJt_sinells_a highiheaven  of corruption. All day Friday they  clawed and chawed at it, in a vain  endeavor to lay bare any evidence of  corrupt practice, and when they desisted they were as wise as when they  started, Even when the fever of their  elation at the Government's announcement that the contract had been cancelled, was at its height, a false note  rang in their shouts of glee. The  Government had bended to popular  opinion, but the Opposition had not  secured even a hand hold. I  WKRK SOUNIH.V Cl'l-'l'l'I). j  "Today they came back to the attack |  and fared a great deal worse than they j  did 011 Friday.    They were rebuffed at  every turn, and Lieut.  Foster  and his  understudy in the graft-smelling cult,  \V. H. Bennett,were both soundly culled  by Duncan Ross of Yale-Caribou.   The  Boundary Creek Tiines man is a Scotchman   with  all his ancestors' fondness |  for good, plain   facts.    He  bombarded ,  Foster Bennett,   and    Co.    with   what  Frederick  D.   Monk calls  'true facts,'  and they sung small.   Noss just simply  held them up and   let  the  Parliament  look at them   from  all  sides.    He  followed   their   own   'gum-shoe'   tactics. ;  He back-trailed   them   for a few  years  and then told the   House  what  he dis- i  covered���and   what   he  brought  forth  wasn't fair to look upon    with Opposition eyes.  "The Government benches crowed  and chuckled in high joy. They wiggled around in ecstatic glee and playfully poked each other in the short ribs,  and upset each other's desk tops, while  the man from the Uritish Columbia  mining constituency went gaily '"i his  course.  "They chortled when he unearthed  the Foster-Bennett North-West laud  deal.  "The land for the speculator, indeed!  "Did't Ross hold them up by the  scruff of the neck and shake for the  details of a big land speculating deal in  which they themselves���the very men  who had shouted 'unclean, unclean' the  loudest���were the chief figuresl  "If a couple of young members had  suddenly commenced turning handsprings down there behind the back  benches it's dollars to doughnuts the  grey-bearded and grey-haired veterans  would have shouted their approval.  "But wait a minute, until I tell how  it all came about���until I get things in  their chronological order.  MONK I.EADS OFF.  "Monk the professor of constitutional law, led off with a very smooth  effort. He did very w-ill, but early he  fell into flie Fosterian rut, and he made  no points the man from North Toronto  had not anticipated Friday night.  "He started ..out with a sarcastic  reference to Sir Wilfrid's closing remark Friday. The leader had then  laughingly remarked that the Opposition might need forty-eight hours 'to  prepare its defence to the Government  announcement of cancellation.  " 'I thought we were the attacking  party,' hes.\id, 'and that the impregnable fortress had surrendered���that the  white flag had been hoisted, and that  Stoessel was coming out.'  '���For a surrender, it was about the  liveliest skirmish Monk was ever mixed  up in.  A CLANDESTINE VIOLATION.  "Monk called that North Atlantic  Trading company contract lots of  things He said it was 'without a  defensible feature,' and bore 'a strong  suspicion of fraud.' He said that  Preston and Smart had engineered the  deal, and that Lord Stratlicona had  warned the Government that the  agreement provided for a clandestine  \ iolation of the treaty of nations.  " 'There is a widespread conviction  J*hatJherelM^  the cost was S4.73 ahead.  "Ross didn't say that in as many  words, but he rattled the bine book  ligures right up against the armor of  the ir.eri across the carpet, aud they  didn't like it a bit.  "Both the Saskatchewan Valley  Lan company and the North Atlantic  Trading company schemes had redounded to the material advan.age of  the North-West.  " 'But both were borrowed'���  "Ross snid so���borrowed from his  friends, the Conservatives. They practised both before the Liberals ascended  to power.  FOSTER IN TROUBLE.  " 'And Mr. Foster, the apostle of  purity,' said Ross, training his guns  upon the North Toronto man, 'he complains because the men whose names  are in the North Atlantic charter are  solicitors' clerks. Well, on the records  in Victoria, he will find solicitors'  clerks named as incorporators of mining companies he promoted.;,  "Then he told a tale of hot water  and temperance. How Mr. Foster's  blue ribbon devotion had been rewarded  with the Temperance Colonization  society grant. On 217,000 acres of  land, in five years the company had  placed 101 settlers, and for that had  received 5100,000.  " 'Some of that land in Saskatoon i*  now selling at S75 and S100 a foot  frontage, and other portions at $1,500  to $2,000 an acre.'  "The land for the settler, forsooth!  "Then Ross talked about Foster's  connection with a 40,000-acre deal near  Tisdale, Saskatchewan. 'He got possession of both the odd and even numbered sections, and despite the protests  of the people he held on, much to the  detriment of the district,' said Ross.  'He refused to exchange, and the result  is that there is not a single settler in  two townships, and Mr. Foster today  enjoys the distinction of being the  manager of the only two townships of  Continued on page 7.

Present indications point most  riiavOTalyly"ttr"th"eiicfofitm  pent^y of Greenwood and other  towns depending largely on the  profitable production of copper  for their commercial well being*,  for the price of copper which is  now over IS cents per pound promises to touch the 20 cent mark before many months. For some  lime the demaud has been greater  than the supply and it is reasonable to suppose that the vast  reconstructive work about to start  in San Francisco and along the  Pacific coast will have a tendance  to stiffen prices.  In the last issue of the Boston  Commercial Walker's copper letter  says:  "Copper continues extremely  strong but domestic prices are  only slightly changed. Lake is  held at IS^-i to 182-8 cents and  electrolytic 1SJ**? to 18yij cents per  pound. Sales are being made at  all these prices. The buying at  the present time is nearly all for  July and August delivery. Some  copper has been purchased for  September delivery. Consumers  have recently been able to secure  small lots of spot copper and some  for May and June account, but so  far as can be ascertained cash  supplies are now practically exhausted. Producers have yeu-  erally sold their entire production  up to August 1st.  ���' 'The all engrossing problem in  the trade at   the present  time is  Golden  Crown Wellington       2,250          Kiiifr Solomon  AV  Copper       S"5  1 Ji ir Copper W.

I am satisfied that  Europe wall need a great deal  more copper than it has so far  purchased, and I do not know the  source from which it is to be supplied. '  " 'The Ocousumption of copper  is clearly running ahead of production. It may be as impossible  to prevent an advance in prices  above 1S><S to 18J4 cents as it was  last year to hold the prices down  to lo/z cents, You -will recall  that the largest producers sold  the   last .pound .of  copper  they  were able to supply at 15,'/i> cents,  believing that would be the top  of the market aud feeling that it  was inexpedient to encourage a  further advance. We are now  supplying the demand for copper  as far as we cau, but we are ready  to say no to those buyers who  desire deliveries between now and  midsummer.'  " 'There is a good foreign demaud for copper, Germany, as  usual, being the largest buyer.  Russia has beeu out of the market  for several months past as a result of its internal disturbances.  Had it uot been for this reduction  in the demaud, prices would uoav  be higher than they are. f think  the San Francisco disaster will  cause an increased demand for  copper. In my opinion, the next  change in the price of copper  will be. an advance and not a decline. "  "The foregoiug are the views of  one who can always be relied upon to state the case conservatively. Other large producing interests have beeu consulted this  week and they confirm the statements quoted. The recent strength  of the London market reflects the  fact that foreign consumers are  in urgent need of supplies, ahd a  20-cent copper market before the  middle of the vear therefore is  not improbable.  ���'The copper mining companies   have  only begun   to receive  the full benefits of present high  metal prices. Copper did uot sell  at 18 cents.per pound until last  December and a great deal of  copper was sold during the month  for delivery as far ahead as March  and April. Pew companies re-  cieved more thau IS ceuts for  their March output, but all of  them will recieve as much if not  more than that price for their  April production. From now the  copper mines of the United States  Canada and Mexico will receive  an ayerage profit, of 100% on  every pound of copper produced.  There will be a profit of more  than $90,000,000 on the copper  produced in these three countries  this year and such prosperity can  hardly fail to be reflected in the  copper market.  "I believe that all the best copper stocks should be bought on  this reaction and held for the  much higher prices which are  pretty sure to be realized before  ihe-end.aLth.e_^:ear.lL^^^������.--���  SUPREME COURT.

Of the striking  men about seventy were working for  Tierney, and the remainder for Creel-  man. H. H. Verge, foreman for Creel-  man, stated to the Times Thursday  night that during March and April his  men had gradually been given an increased wage until with May 1st a  general scale of $3 for nine hours was  adopted for carpenters, masons, tim-  bermen and laborers. His men,, he  claims, have absolutely no grievance,  and those who went on strike either  misunderstood: the situation or went  out in sympathy for the Italians work  ing on the excavations under Tierney.  A number of his men, who inquired  more cloBelyinto the matter, continued  their work without interruption.  Tierney's men are mostly Italians,  and were emploj'ed on excavation work  for which they were receiving $2.50 for  ten hours. Mr. Tierney claims the  men were perfectly satisfied, aa they  were get*, ing as much as they could get  for similar work on the railways'* until  induced to strike by the union.

Co. Formed-  William Forrest, who has prospected  for many years over the Province of  British Columbia for minerals of all  kinds, including coal and oil, while on  a survey sent out by the Dominiou  government, saw with his own eyes  seepages of oil in the Flathead valley  in the southeastern corner of British  Columbia in the early nineties.  In the year 1901 he induced Angus  Cameron of Cascade, B. C, and one  James Cameron, who had trapped in  the Flathead valley 15 years before,  and who then taw oil seepages and  made locations, to go into that district  with him and locate some claims under  the "Coal Mines' Act of B. C.  After looking the Ian I over they  became convinced that the Ian Is in  and around Kishenehna creek were the  most promising for oil, and made four  locations there. When Angus Cameron came back he interested several  Gieenwood men in a prospect of get  ting licenses to prospect for oil and developing an oil field there. Prominent  among these were J. E. Spankie, M. D.,  S. Barry Yuill Hugh McCutcheon and  E. R. Redpath. The necessary steps  as to advertising, etc., were taken, and  an application was m?de to the Provincial government for licenses. These  were -refused on the ground that the  land was in reserve, and that it was  against public policy to grant licenses.  UCBNSES REFUSED.

Nine licenses  were  issued to the parties interested  herein.  In 190.-J they  attempted  to  clear their  titles  by   requesting    all    conflicting  claimants ts appear in conrt, but Judge  Forin decided he had   no jurisdiction,  and the attempt fell through.  Early in 1905 E. W. Lysons, P. L. S.,  and a gang of men were sent in to  survey the claims so held under license.  It was then ascertained that the claims  conflicted with those held by McVittie,  Baker and others of Cranbook. As  the latter appeared to have complied  with the "Coal Mines' Act," and to  have located at an early date, the  Greenwood men at considerable expense effected an arrangement with  them and took an assignment of all  their claims excepting one which was  retained by McVittie.  I.KA.SE OBTAINED.  Among the claims so obtained was  one located by James Biker, and als.j  by Hngh McCutcheon, which an eminent Dominion geologist stated on the  ground was, in his opinion, the most  promising location for oil in British  Columbia. The Greenwood men then  devoted all their energies to getting a  lease on this claim, as a lease meant a  title, and the license issued "by the B.C.  government was no title. A lease was  finally obtained on the 9th of March  last, which the owners state is the first  and only lease that has been granted  in the Flathead valley.  A company to develop and exploit  this field for oil has been formed. This  is called the "Canada Western Oil  Company, Limited, Non-Personal inability." The. capital is 500,000 shares  of the par value of Si.00 each. Two  hundred and twenty thousand of these  shares has been placed in the treasury  for development purpose*.  THE DIRECTORS.  The: first or provisional directors of  'he company are: J. E. Spankie,  M. D., E. R. Redpath, Hugh McCutcheon, S. Barry Yuill and James McCreath. The officers of this company  believe it occupies a very favorable  position. A projected railway to connect with the C. P.

Rossland Ore Sorter Drops a Distance  of 1.650 Feet.  Christopher Curry, an ore sorter at  the Centre Star, Rossland, met with a  fearful death Saturday last, by falling  ji distance of about 1,650 feet in the  shaft and from the top of the head-  works. The dreadful accident was the  result of losing his balance. The skip  on the track on the west side of the  shaft, after it had automatically dumped its load, was so fouled by a piece of  ore that it refused to go back into the  shaft. Curry got into the skipwaY below the skip with a crowbar for the  purpose of removing the rock aud  freeing the skip. Suddenly he lost his  balance and went hurtling downward.  Sti iking the inclined side of the skip-  way, he was hurled outward with such  great speed and force that he struck  the outer protection rail at the collar of  the shaft and dropped from (here directly into the shaft. The top of the  headworks is about 45 feet above the  collar of the shaft. The body of the  unfortunate man bounded from projection to projection, and was literally  torn to pieces in its descent to the bottom of the shaft, 1,650 feet from where  it started. The employes of the Centre  Star, who were around the mouth of  the shaft, saw Curry coirr plunging  down and strike tlit* rai! ;���>. the *..<<lHr  of the sli.-f', aud tru-n bound ino.k and  OitiippciT ii.to tl.c ��u..ii.

Both bylaws passed. The passing of the bylaws means that a reservorr . will be  constructed on Providence creek and  that the north end of the town will be  supplied with a first-class water system.  The project of the Greenwood Electric  Light Co. having been endorsed by the  citizens, that company will immediately proceed with the construction of  their power plant at Boundary Falls.  Mr. Warren, the manager, stated to  the Times Thursday morning that the  plans for the works would be sent at  once to the chief commissioner of  land and works for his official approval.  This will probably take two or,three  weeks, bi t in the. mean time as much  preparatory work will be done as possible in order to hasten the completion  of the plant at the earliest possible  date. ''-;������  COUNCIL,   MEETS.  ' The city council met Wednesday evening and received the report of the returning officer and there was an evident air of satisfaction pervading the  j. recincts of the conncil chamber. The  question of greatest public ��� interest  oming up for discussion was the reading room. Some time ago a committee  representing the free reading room on  Greenwood street and the Miners'  Union reading room was appointed to  consider the question of amalgamation. Tiiat committee was represented  by a delegation before the council,  which recommended that the reading  room on Greenwood street be closed  up; that the present donation of $15  per month to the free reading room be  transferred to the Miners' Union reading room and that a committee be appointed in charge, representing the  city council, the free reading room and  the Miners' Union. This was discussed for sometime, the mayor pointing out that a union of all the forces  in the city was necessary to carry pn a  successful free reading room,;and that  it was better to have one good reading  room than two poor ones.  PURKI.Y PUBIvIO.  Alderman Bunting expressed n  strong desire to have the reading room  free from any obligations to any or-  =gahizatibn**and*:rtinipurelyiin-the-inter-  ests of the public, if the council waa  going to donate anything to its support. This point was .discussed both  by the council and the delegation, and  ended in a motion by Alderman Bunl-  ing that the 515 per month now eroing  to the Greenwood street reading room  be tiansferred tc the joint committee  in charge of the Miners' reading room,  temporarily, until September, when  the Miners' union lease on their premises expires. This was passed. It is  the intention of the joint committee to  formulate i ew plans and to be on the  lookou'. for larger premises. The  Greenwood street reading room will be  closed.  KeSlG NATIONS.  Th *��� resignation of J. P. Myers Gray  as city solicitor, was read and accepted.  A successor will be elected by the  council at a future meeting. The resignation of A. U Hallett as chief of  the police at:d tire departments, was  also received and accepted. A gsuc-  cessor to this position will be advertised for.  The city engineer recommended that  a four-inch water main be extended on  Long Lake slr:et 'o supply water to  several applicants. This was passed  on motion of McRae and Sullivan.  The report of the engineer stated that  applications for fifteen water services  had been applied for since April 1st.  This is an irniication that the city is  growing in people and prosperity, ft  rjwas decided to proceed at once with  the improvements, to the street in front  of C Scott Galloway".-; residence.  ���.

" 'This is the man who howled in the  House the land for the settler 1' exclaimed Ross, suddenly, becoming more  animated. Then , the Liberals broke  loose in loud cheers.  A NEW &EST OF TRAITORS.  "It was but the commencement, for  the British Columbian was warming  up, and he had about a yard of notes  yet to 'expand.'  "He said that by some mysterious  method certain Conservative members  had obtained possession of 200,000 acres  of C. P. R. land.    .  " 'Foster was engaged to manage the  company, and he immediately formed  a new nest of traitors among land  speculators,' said Ross, and the Liberals stretched their lungs in cheers.  Ross had in his possession a statement  of claim in a suit instituted by A. A.  Lefurgev, M. P.,W. H. Bennett, M. P.,  and A. Pencher, against the Great  West Land Co., the company formed  to handle the 200,000 acres, and Rufus  Pope, ex-M. P., and George W. Fowler,  M. P., and suggested that Mr. Bennett  must have been searching for balm'for  his disappointment in not securing a  slice of public domain on 'easy terms.'  "'When I read this statement of  claim I am impressed with the fact that  the Conservatives in their land speculations could not hurt each other,', remarked Mr. Ross. 'They were apparently.all/right until the got under the  blighting, influence of Mr. Foster.'  "More Liberal joy!  "'They were a happy family until  they gol into his hands,' and the Government benches grew noisy again.  "Thj statement of claim detailed the  formation ot a company to deal in  North-West lands, and a scrap over the  division in which it see.i.ed Lefurgey,  Binnett and Pencher had got the short  end of the deal. -  "The defence of Messrs.  Pope and]  Fowler was that they had obtained the  land by'their own exertions,' and were  therefore entitlen to the lion's share.  "Mr.. Ross wanted to know something  about the 'exertions' which gained  them the land at a reduction of $3 an  acre. He pointed out that they had put  up only $200 each, aud had secured an  option on and sold to the Great West  Land Co. 200,000 acres at an advance  of '51 an acre.  " 'There should have been enough to  go around,' remarked Ross, dryly, 'but  Mr. Foster is never mixed up in anything where a nest of traitors does not  develop. He wouldn't divide even, but  wanted to squeeze  out the neophytes.'  NO  SYMPATHY  COMING.  '���Mr. Ross scored Foster for his mud-  slinging electioneering -tactics of 1896,  and said that the ugly chickens he had  hatched out then were coming home  to roost, and he got no sympathy from  "thfe"Otheriside=bf "the'Houser"^--"-^^^-^  The speech closed amid ringing-  cheers from the Government benches,  and sad looks fiom the opposition,  while a shower of congratulations were  bestowed upon the member from  Greenwood.
