It was good news, that came on  Tuesday morning in the announcement of General Manager McAllister  that the, B.C. Copper Co. would start  engaging men on Wednesday, and  its reception lh the town showed that.it  was appreciated. A larger number of  men than ever before is asked for by  Company which corroborates the statement made often during the shut-down  that the   company's operations   here  . 1-   being taken on every day, jukt as fast  as room can be made for them. Yesterday 25 men were workin*! and up  to this morning early.there had been  over 125 applications at the. Mother  Lode alone. Everything isjbeing put  in shape rapidly and thej|C will be  breaking ore in the mine tomorrow  (Saturday) morning. f  Drilling is being staited tnis morning at Oro Denoro mine, ig Summit  past it has been more valuable to sell  than to smelt and has been used largely  by the Granby. Its operations are  thus not-dependent on the operations  of the Smelter here but on outside demand. The Emma employs usually  about 60 men.  At thc Smelter this morning,.Mn  McAllister thought e verythi ng was progressing nicely.

The ore has been widening with  each shot aud it is expected that  it will keep on widening until it  reaches five feet, the width it  was higher up in the shaft. It  is also stated that two distinct  >rc samples of Bertha ore sent to  Rossland a few days ago for special analysis have produced returns  of $560 and $300 respectively io  gold and silver to the ton.

A new  tunnel has been started which is  being run on the ore lead. Tbis  property which now has enougTi  ore, in sight to make the ear  marks of a paying mine will be  fairly well demonstrated by the  work done this summer. The  ore of the Golden Eagla is reported to rutl $40 per ton in gold and  copper.  One of the mines in the  high  grade belt that has been steadily  1 \vorking along for some  months,  having little said about it, is the  Tip Top, in Skylark camp.    The  property is located in-the vicinity  ot the Bay, Mavis, Skylark, and  other well known claims in   that  camp, and so far the development  has been decidedly enoouraging.  The main perpendicular shaft  of  the  Tip  Top is  now down  about 150 feet, and drifting' has  been started at the 125-foot level,,  the drifting being now in about  30 feet. Those in chargesay that  the face is in ore of a goo4��rade,  .and they are confident that .they  -iia-W-ia-p^^  that with adequate development,  will join the steady shipping column.  H, V. Puller, one of the large  owners of the Bay, which has  shipped such valuable carloads of  gold ore, is also interested in the  Tip Top, and is now in the east,  in connection with Tip Top matters. A new company is being  formed,at Lincoln, Nebraska, to  work the property and secure the  capital necessary for development.  The company will have a moderate capital, of about $25,000.  The Tip Top is equipped with an  electric hoist, and the mining can  be done in an economic and expeditious manner. Seven men are  now employed on the property,  two shifts being steadily worked.  ���Phoenix Pioneer.  t\ Wire us for Quotations \  Our facilities for buying  Dominion, B.C., or  Granby Stocks >  on the curb in New York \  or Bostonare unequalled  Bven   our   competitors  acknowledge    that   we..  can  buy   these .' stocks,  cheaper     than    they.

In giving it to the public  through the columns of this paper, it  is only necessary to say plainly that  the passing of the resolution was opposed by the editor of this paper. The  ground of his opposition was that the  men having gone to work there was  no need of the resolution. Everyone  in the community and no one more  than the writer wants good labor conditions here but we may disagree as to  the means most effective in securing  such conditions. The resolution  which is being circulated today for signatures is as follows:  Whereas it has come to our attention through recent developnicns that  we have in our midst those who seek  to create dissension between employer  and employee,  It is Hereby Resolved ; That we  the undersigned members of the  Greenwood Board of Trade and Citizens of Greenwood, while being in  hearty sympathy with properly directed  organized labor, wish to place ourselves on record as opposed to any  further attempt to create such strained  relations and we strongly oppose all  efforts of the labor agitator and trouble  maker tending towards industrial unrest and furthermore will do bur utmost not to harbor such characters in  our community,  F.

It is the   intention   of   "The  News" to ladle out   just  euoug-h  political opinion of   either  kind  to make it nothing ia a  political  way and to   protect   itself from  local opposition, the change is to  be sincerely  regretted   from the  high ground of the virile education of the people on political  issues.

SUBSCRIPTIONS IN ADVANCE.  Pbb Yeak     2 00  Si-x Months   1 25  To Forbion ConNTRiES. 2 50  Editor  A. I>. Macf-runb  FRIDAY, MAY 8, 1908  The good news that came on  Tuesday morning will be well  appreciated throughout the camp.  There is now absolutely no reason why Greenwood should not  forge right ahead into the place  which she should occupy as the  leading city of the Boundary district. Only whole hearted co-operation will do this. It should be  remembered from the first that  we have here a very great country to develop and build up and  that care should be taken at every step. The things best for  the interests of the community  must be constantly and energetically encouraged and the things  not for its interest must be eliminated. The writer does not intend by this to refer to any particular condition but in every  community which makes its way,  things must gradually settle  themselves into harmony with  what that community'siproducts  are. Iu a mining country, boom  days are always succeeded by  quieter and then comes a time  wheu everything like the rest of  the world, must come to a purely  commercial basis.  The citizens of Greenwood can  The Nelson Daily News which  for seme six vears past has been  advocating the principles of Liberalism and at the same time providing a eood daily paper for the  Kootenays and the Boundary last  week passed out of the hands of  F. J. Deane and announced itself  as an independent paper. Immediately tbe Daily Canadian  ceased publication, its last- issue  appearing on May 2nd.  Oalv very meagre particulars  of tbe reason why this change  has been made, are given, and  the general supposition seems to  be tbat from Mr. Deane's side the  matter is largely a personal one.  However, a despatch to the  Daily Province says that'the News  is to be independent with Conservative leanings. If this is true,  the step being taken by the News  is a very regrettable one indeed.  Independent papers with fixed  leanings are pretty much of a  farce everywhere for this simply  means that they aim to fight  their battle uuder a cover and to  disarm opposition with deception.  About indppendent papers, Joseph T. Clark of the Toronto Saturday Night had last week a few  remarks which are worth wide  publication. After exposing the  uselessness of protestations of independence in politics, Mr.Clarke  suggests that the proof of the  pudding is in the eating of it and  continues : "The way to give independent opinion is to give it.-  If a newspaper charges itself with  the duty of Ladling out political  views impartially, a quart to oue  side and then a quart to the other  ���a roast for one party and then  a roast for the other���saying  nothing about one party without  being careful to'tsay quite as  much about the other, it deserves  nobody's respect. A newspaper  to be independent should be guided by certain standards of right  and wrong which it should endeavor to uphold no matter what  politician or what political party  is concerned. As between a party  journal and a neutral one, the  former seems to be infinitely pte-  ferable. It pools opinions with  others and works in unison with  them, yielding here and gaining  there but on the whole advancing  its beliefs in general; whereas  the neutral paper shirks the hav-J  The Nelson News following  the line of the Province speaks  of the unhappy stand taken by  Mr. Ross re tbe Hodgin's charges.  A full and free investigation is  being given tbe charges but the  Conservative, press are not hesitating meanwhile to try and make'  all the political capital possible  out of the matter. Liberals, "if  they even express an opinion, the  result of personal knowledge of  the circumstances of Major Hod-  gin's disagreement with his superior, are immediately charged  with sinister motives. Mr. Boss  stated that he was in a position  to know something of the case  and we are fully satisfied that  the Commission will fully" corroborate his remarks.  Falls Down Badly  The Hedley Gazette referring  to the attempt ot the Editor of  the Vancouver Sunset to knock  tl-ie prospects of railway connection to the coast for Southern  British Columbia, says:  "The last issue of the Saturday  Sunset contains a sensational  story of J. J. Hill's intentions  concerning the V.V. & E. Whatever grounds the Sunset may have  for claiming betrayal of McLean  Bros., whose cause the editor has  taken up, the article falls down  badly when it enters the domain  of prophecy and declares that  Hill will not complete tbe road  to the coast."  POLITICAL.  W. A. Galiiher, M.P., has denied that his name was in any  way connected with the Dupont  divorce case. The Province will  be sorry it spoke.  The early entry of the Hon.  Clifford Sifton into the Dominion  Cabinet was announced by Senator James H. Ross, of Calgary,  last week. This will rather put  the touch of scorn on John Hous-  Probably there is no subject  more discussed in mining districts  and of which less is known to  the public tban tbe cost of mining and producing copper. Estimates from 8 cents to 13 cents  have been circulated as the price  at which the red metal can be  put on the markets of the world.  The cost of ' producing copper  may ana, of course, does fluctuate in every p'ant and is dependent on practically every incident  of the management. Good supervision in the mines, the cost of  carrying the ore, able and efficient and careful management���  all these go to make up according  to their quality, either an increase or a decrease in the cost, of  production. Perhaps a rough  estimate for British Columbia  low grade mines when carefuUy  and efficientl y manage*! is somewhere between 10 and 12 cents.  and in a great many cases it must  be nearer the latter figure than  the former. In the face of these  facts���if they are facts, it is vory  clear that careful management  should be anprprintrd bv every  section of a community. If sifrns  of retrenchment are shown, it is  not well to jump to the conclusion that these things are inimical to the general interest. Tbe  sooner the fart that there is not  an elvsium in copper mining but  a good square working living and  a little to spare fnr a worker���  the sooner this fact is recogtiizpd,  the earlier will the great copper  Camps of Southern British Columbia find their real and true prosperity."  Two ventures in profit-sharing  or "general welfare" co-operation between employers and employees have come to an end recently after having excited interest the world over.' The man  who was at the head of one  of them, Alfred Dolge, of Dolge-  ville, N.Y., died with good faith  still in the system although his  former business had failed after  twenty-five.yejars of a growing  existence. The other, Patterson,  the Cash Register man of Dayton,  Ohio, whose establishment has  been a Mecca to all students of  labor problems, has turned angrily away .from the idea and declares that itf .future he will devote himself to straight business.  Dolge - started in 1874. His  bookkeeping was by departments  and often the men in one department drew profits when the busi  ness as a whole, yielded *aof.e.  There was a system of insurance,  the benefit increasing with the  length of service *, there was an  old age pension ; also a periston  for those meetiug wi'th'accidenfcs.  If any man invented a labor-saving device, the saving thereby  effected, accrued largely to the  man himself. Eight years ago  financial difficulties overtook  Dolge and he went to the wall  but getting new backing he had  started again in California' when  he died,-  Pattersoh's story is less tragic  but not so pleasaut. He had done  the same things as Dolge. But  now he asserts be has been pestered beyond endurance by petty  grievances. He charges his workpeople with being unreasonable  and discontented although he  was paying them a wage of twenty-seven dollars a week. The  employees reply *�� Hh.A an(l saJ  that Mr. Patterson is autocratic;  that he has come under the rule  of a favorite and so down goes  the profit-pharing establishment  .at Dayton.  The story illustrates the "difficulty of handling large numbers  of employees even when the government is philanthropic. The  idea of benefitting in this way is  distasteful to seme. Others see  in the method a good advertising  medium and sometimes the idea  that he is a benefactor works ..on  the employer. The- sphinx is  not yet solved.  5,000 Facts About Canada.

Smith Curtis who is now living  "at Savonna i6 credited in a report  from Vernon with having made  . several valuable coal locations on  Short's creek at a point five miles west of Okanagan lake.. The  group contains several bitumin-  "ous coal seams, the largest of  which has a thickness of eight  teet. According to a recent analysis the coal" runs 59 per cent,  in fixed carbon and is well adap-r  ted for coking and steam purposes. Mr. "Curtis has already, received a number of offers from  parties who are -willing to provide money for development.  ���A.      '  : Y'-'Y'  $175,000 was the price paid  William Waldie for the Queen  mine at Salmo on Saturday last.  The purchase was tnade for a  syndicate of Wisconsin capitalists  who paid down $50,000 the- remainder to be paid by the end of  30 months. In the meantime Mr.  Wa,ldie receives 15 per cent of the  mint and smelter returns, these  forming instalments of theQpur-  chase price. Mr. Waldie seems  to have.pretty much-dictated his  own terms for the deal falls  through and the property reverts  if the payments fall in arrears or  if the mine is closed down for a  period of 60 days.      *  There are at present 38 men at  work at the mine and a 10-stamp  mill in operation. Ten other  stamps are to be installed as soon  as the roads open and then the  mine will have a capacity of nearly 400 a week. Mr. Waldie has  had  the property six years.  CHILD'S SEVERE BURNS  HEALED BY  ZAM-BUK  The little girl of Mrs. Lewis  Bestr of Carlisle P.O., recently  fell against the stove and burned  her forehead v.ery badly. Mrs.  Best says:���uThe burn wasabout  the size of a fifty cent piece and  was near the bone. It made my  little girl's eyes swell till' it almost shut, and then she got cold  in it. It began to run matter very  badly, and I could not stop it, although I bathed good every night  and morning. At last I sent for"  some Zam-Buk which soon stopped trie matteration and very  quickly healed the wound. I have  never seen a burn heal so quickly  and I am sure Zam-Buk has no  equal for curing cuts, or burns,  and I shall always keep a box en  hand'in case of emergency."  - Every home needs Zam-Buk 1  ���^iriaiseaaes' of the ' skin quickty  yields to.it.

There is a report from Grand  Forks which savs that J. J.

It is stated  that work will in all probability  be resumed oh this line within  the next six months. This is the  only real definite information  yet to hand respecting the building of tke line^d Fi��odUin.JCamp.  Already thit railway has the rails  laid to Lynch Creek, a distance  of 19 miles from Grand Forks,  the distance from Lynch creek to  Franklvn being a further stretch  of 31 miles.  hcon compiled by Dr. R.

At Tierney & Co's camp at  Deadwood there have been about  80 men all week. The right of  way is being cleared but the mam  part of the work is being'held up  for ��� some necessary materials  which the C.P.R. should furnish.  When these come the work will  be shoved righ** ahead.  We have bargains in Wall Paper remnants that we wish to clear.  Get busy before that tall chimney  tarts spouting.    MeRae Bros.  Mrs. Isabella M. Parsons, of  Minneapolis, who with" Harry H.  Shallenberger, of Spokane, owns  the Moreen mine in South Dead-  wood camp has entered suit  aeainst. Mr. Shallenberger for  $50,000 damages for letters written, she alleges for the purpose  of injuring her. Mrs. Parsons  was in Greenwood about six weeks  ago and this suit apparently follows a threatened one for misrepresentation. Mr. Shallenberger  is well kt-own in eamp, being one  ot the original owners of the  Crescent mine.  Tie-makers complain that the  C.P.R. are refusing to inspec*  more ties in the Boundary until  September. Some of the men are  being left with large quantities  of ties on hand and being compelled to wait so long for money  when they have to pay-wages is  creating a good deal of hardship  Two automobiles, a heavy touring car and a runabout made the  dust fly on the Midway road on  Sunday. Thev contained the  families of Messrs. Hodges and  Williams of . the Grand Forks  smelter. It doesn't take very long  to find out where an unfortunate  driver would be if he met a car  on that new piece of road below  Boundary Falls. The road as it  stands there today is positively  dangerous.  ' Mrs. F. M. Elkins gave her  friends a very pretty and much  enjoyed "At Home" on Wednesday night in the Eagles' Hall.  The attendance was well suited  to tbe size of the hall, there being about 40 couples present.  Music for the dancing which was  supplied by Mrs. Oliver at the  piano, her sou Jack, with the  drums, and A. F. Jory, violinist,  was very much appreciated by all  the guests. The hall was prettily decorated and evorything  possible for the comfort and convenience of the dancers was provided. The affair was an unqualified success.  T. M.Gulley & Co. are building  an extension at the rear of their  large stera on Copper street  which will be fitted up as a mod-  era undertaking parlor. The new  building is to be about 30 x 55 ft.  and two stories high, the second  storey being on a level with the  main floor of.the furniture store.  The building will open on Silver  street, the lot being graded off  gradually from the entrance to  the street level. The optimism  of the firm is shown in the fact  that the building was started before the mines were declared open  ��� The Young Men's Club of St.  Columba'a decided at its meeting  last night to broaden its work and  in this attempt the members are  requesting the co-operation of all  young men interested in improving themselves and others. A  discussion in this connection and  some impromptu ��� debating was  the program last night. Two  weeks hence there will be a discussion on favorite poets of individual members. All young men  are cordially invited.  The death of Mrs. W. S. Hort-  on occurred on  Wednesday night  at the   Sacred   Heart   Hospital.  Horton had been ill only one  week and was taken to the hospit-1  al on Monday.

S. Lundie.  of Phoenix.  In the bereaved   family   are   six  children, three of them still quite  small.    Mr. Horton aud the family will have the very truest sympathy of the   community  in  his  bsreavement.

The men who go to work at  the Emma'mine will have a post  office at their door. The Dominion Government has opened a post  office at Denoro and the post mastership has been given to William  Phillips who conducts the store  there. Formerly all the mail for  Denoro was directed to the Eholt  office and had to be taken over  by special messengers. The  move comes verv^ happily with  the opening of the mine when it  will be widely appreciated.
