DECLARED  The Greenwood Miners' union  has declared a strike against the  mines and smelter of tbe Britiuh  Columbia Copper company. Tbe  minority report of Mr. Mclnnis  of the Conciliation board, which  recent]**' sat here to consider the  differences between tbe company  and the union, was adopted by  tbe union arid tbeir action followed. The notice posted by the  union was as follows :  "On June 1, 1907 Greenwood  Miners' union and tbe manager  of the B. C. Copper company  adopted a wage scale to he paid  ���be employees of tbe B. C. Copper company at their mines and  smelter. In May, 1908 the manager of the B. C. Copper company  reduced the wages of bis employees and from that time tn  to the present time has refused to  submit a copy of the scale of  wages he is paying his employees to Greenwood Miners' anion  and he has tried to disrupt Greenwood Miners' union by blacklisting our active members. The  properties of the B. C. .Copper  company are closed down at present and we intend to keep them  closed down until the management recognizes Greenwood Miners'union. At least 90 per cent  of the employees of the B. C.  company before it closed down  were members of Greenwood Miners' union. The strike committee will notify the public through  the press when the strike is  called off."  The following letters which  have passed between the union  and the company, within the last  week give this story of the negotiations leading up to the strike.  Greenwood, B. C, June 21.  Mr. J. E McAllister, Manager B.  C. Copper Co., Anaconda, B.C.  Dear Sir���At a regular meeting of Greenwood Miners' union,  June 19, 1909, the members  adopted the report of John Mclnnis as a member of the conciliation and investigation board lately held in Greenwood.  I was instructed to notify you  to that effect and failing to get  a satisfactory answer from you  before 7 p. m. June 23, to declare  a strike against the B. C. Copper  company, on behalf of Greenwood Miners' union.  Hoping to receive an early reply.    Respectfully yours.  (Signed) George Heathekton  nor is it our intention tbat there  should lie any dis- rimination  against your member* without,  however, in any sense nbrogating  the right of tbis company to hire  and discharge such men as it considers best in its own interests  and vou will understand that any  employee faithfully discharging  bis duties in the interests of the  company will be given r>vprv consideration, whether bei"i ni'io- to  your organization or not.  It bad been our intention, prior  to tbe receipt of your U-'ior, to  resume work both at th<- ��� nclter  and the Mother Lode mine as  soou as a sufficient supply of fuel  had been acrutmi'ated at the  former point, and in this resumption tbe members of your organization would have been fairly  dealt wiih, the samo as any one  else. Il is wiih regret, therefore, that, we note the stand you  take in your letter indicating as  it does a position biased in one  direction; as we had hoped your  organization would adopt an attitude of fair dealing which must  be essential to its stability, as  well as its harmonious relations  with this company.  We trust tbat you will consider  this a satisfactory reply to your  communication and refrain from  any action, the effect -of which,  must impose unnecessary hardship tin others who are not connected with you.  Yours verv truly,  J. E. McAllister,  'General Manager.  1  i  Greenwood. C C, June 23.  To the Memh _rfi Greenwood Miners' Union, No. 22, Western  Federation of Miners, Greenwood, B. C.  Dear Sirs���Your letter of the  21st. received and its contents  noted with regret, for while you  state that you bave adopted the  report of your representative on  the conciliation board, the spirit  of fairness mentioned at the  close of tbe report appears to be  quite absent from your communication.  As you have probably heard, it  was our intention to be governed  by the report of the chairman of  the conciliation board which sat  in Greenwood early in May, in so  far as the proper carrying on of  our business would allow, this  affording, in our opinion, a ready  solution of any difficulties existing between your organization  and this company.  So long as your otganization  is conducted upon the lines indi  cated in the chairman's report,  there can be no objection to our  receiving a committee of your organization, the members of  which are conversant with conditions, to intercede for one of  your members who may allege  that he has been unjustly discharged, provided the individual  has been unable to adjust the  matter with the superintendent  personally before referring it to  your organization.  The chairman's report states  that vou did not substantiate  your charges of discrimination,  . Greenwood, B. C . June 24.  Mr. J. E. McAllister, Manager B.  C. Conner Co., Anaconda, B. C.  Dear Sir���I am in receipt of  ���your communication of June 23,  to the members of Greenwood  Miners' union.  I note what yon say about a  spirit of fairness and that the  chairman of tbe board's report  states that we did not substantiate our charges of discrimination, but the members are not  overlooking- the fact that Judge  Wilson left Greenwood on tbe  same train as your representative.  And when we consider that Mr.  Cronyn was your guest while in  Greenwood and the opinions expressed in his report must naturally be your opinions, we fail to  see any spirit of fairness as far  as this organization is concerned.  We are willing to acknowledge  that you are tbe representative  of the B. C. Copper company, but  we also expect that you shall  recognize Greenwood Miners'  union as representing your employees and until such time as  you recognize this organization  as representing your employees I  fail to see any possibility of our  arriving at a settlement.  I wish to repeat to you what I  have told you before, that Greenwood Miners' union is not looking for trouble and 1 will delav  taking any action until 7 p. m..  June 25, and j will expect by  that time that you will let me  know if vou are willing to submit a "wage scale for your employees" to Greenwood Miners'  union; also if you are willing to  meet a committee from Greenwood Miners' union to adjust our  trrifvnnres.  I believe Mint. I ran sny for tbe  membeis of Greenwood Miners'  union that they did not. hear the  report that it was vur intention  to be governed bv the report of  the chairman of the conciliation  and investigation board. Yours  very truly.  (Signed) Geokc;icHkathkkton  Sec. Greenwood Miners' Union  PLAN FOR  INTERSTATE.  In view of the fact that every  effort will be made to insure tbe  greatest mineral exhibit at the  Spokane Interstate fair this fall  that has ever been displayed there,  it is not too C3r1y to call the  attention of the people in tbis  locality to tbe opportunity there  offered. Below is given the mineral prize list and it cannot be  too strong! v urged that the Boundary should be represented under  as many heads as possible. The  American Institute of Mining  Engineers will hold their meeting  at Spokane during the week following the, fair and arrangements  bave been made to have the mineral exhibit on display during  tbat time, for the inspection of  the engineers who will attend  tbe meeting. It is hoped that  arrangements can be made to  have the Western Branch of the  Canadian Mining institute participate in the sessions and entertainment of the visitors, and, if  this can be arranged, no better  opportunity couid be afforded to  present our mineral resources before the engineers of the continent.  Every camp in the Pacific  Northwest has been  invited   to  The Secretary. Greenwood Miners' Union. Western Federation of Miners, Greenwood,  B.C.  Dear Sir���Your communication  of the 24th. inst. has been received. Apparently you have  misunderstood our letter of the  23rd, although it appears to us  quite clear and I trust the members of your organization understand its purport.  At your request the department  of labor at Ottawa granted a  conciliation and investigation  board and you have its findings.  We have expressed to vour members our willingness to act along  the lines of the report of the independent member of that board,  a county court judge, who was  appointed by the honorable minister of labor and there is no  mention in cur letter of this company's representative. In. closing this correspondence, we can  only say that we have nothing  further to add to our letter of the  23rd. inst.  .Yours very truly,  J. E, McAllister,  General Manager.  and, as will be noted, unusuallv  liberal prizes have been offered.

This  mine has been shipping since 1904,  has sent out 31 cars of ore, and  has made a record of an average  net return of approximately $116  per ton. In addition to ihis,  thousands of tons of second-grade  ore have been accumulated, waiting for the time when better  transportation facilities may  make its shipping profitable. Below is a rpcord of the total shipments made from the Sallv, with  their weight and the date of shipment, where it has been possible  to secure these data, also the net  smelter returns. It may be noted  that some of the later shipments  carried a percentage of second  grade ore, which accounts for the  fact that the proportionate returns were smaller.

The illustrations are as usual ot  the newer settled sections of  British Columbia and are of particular interest tbis year as they  cover some of the country  through which tbe Canadian  Northern passes. Oueen Charlotte Island and other large island areas come in for special  attention It is needless to state  that the report embodies the entire province. The report of  Gold Commissioner W. G. Mc  Mynn for the Greenwood Mining  Division, shows tbe progress of  mining in tbe Boundary district  to be very marked. An increase  in the annual copper production  each vear is surely a good criterion of tbe mineral wealth of a  district:  1904 22.0t',6,000 lbs. copper  1905 27.670.000   "  190C. 32,227,000   "  1097 31.521.000   "  1908  40,178,000   "  An idea of tde quantity of copper produced by the leading companies operating in the Boundary  district is obtainable from tbe  following figures, showing,  aproximately, the tonnage of ore  mined and smelted last vear:  Tons  Granby Con.

The claim is owned by James Copeland, who for the past score of years  has been drawing his money (rom his  bank in the -.-ravels of the South Fork  of Rock creek. By Mr. Copeland it  was bonded to a syndicate of Phoenix  men, who have done quite a little development work and who are now organizing in order to carry this work  further.  '1 he showing on the I.e Roi is a  stron*/ one, the lead extending some  seventeen hundred feet, and being at  least ninety feet in width on the surface, as has been proven by cross-  cutting. Two shafts, each to a depth  of sixty-rise teet and all in ore, have  been sunk seven hundred feet apa;t.  The ore is rem irkable for its Huxing  oiialities, an average sample running  47 per cent, in iron and JO per cent,  in sulphur, while carrying close to  2'.* per cent, in copper and values iu  tfold and silver. It is probable that a  still better showing will be made when  more work is done, as the samples  taken thus far are close to the foot  wall.  I he new company is called the  Copeland Mininir and Development  Companv, Limited, Non-Personal  Liability. The capital is $250,OUU  in one dollar shares- and the incorporators arc Dan Patterson, Walter  Ross, Anson A White, Walter Cook  and Gilbert Kay, all of Phoenix.  Kverything points to the success of  their venture, as the showing, on the  I.e Roi is certainly extraordinary.

FRIDAY, JULY 2,1909  REGARDING THE BACK  YARD  THE OPTIMIST  The new C. P. R. spur to Central Camp   is proceeding  slowh  owing to the rough nature of the  country to be traversed.    A bridge  200 feet long and   150  feet  high  will be one  the  features of  the  new branch   line.    Frank Gome,  one of  the original   locators  of  the City   of   London   group   of  claims in Central Camp, and, the  owner at   the   present   time   of  several properties there is  about  to resume  work  on the City of  London, long idle  for   want   of  transportation    facilities.     This  property   has    an    exceptionally  line surface showing   of   quart:;,  carrying gold and   silver  values.  There are  several other   private  claims owners awaiting the completion of this  railroad  to  work  their   properties,     and    Central  Camp will undoubtly be a  large  shipper in the course of  a short  time; especially as the B. C. Copper Co. and the Granby Co. are  largely interested in this locality,  the former owning  the  Wahmg-  ton and Lone Star mine and  the  latter owning the Oity  of Paris  and the Majestic groups of  well  developed mineral claims.  Tenders are being c-illi*d for  for poles and setting, by the.Kettle River Telephone L:nes company. Tbe board of man-agement  consists of Jim McMynn, D. R.  Tait and Sam Larsen. The B.  C. Telephone company will supply  all the wire and instruments.  Wm Johnson was a visitor to  Greenwood last week and has discovered just how many hogs it  takes to make a carpet.

April l��th, 1'IOT.  .1. W. O'Brien, Licencee.  We regret to state that Greenwood appears to believe in tbe  old adage, "It isn't Sunday in  tbe back yard." Tbe expression  indicated tbat thiugs were considered permissible if tbey were  done out of tiigbt uf tbe neighbors, or if not so considered still  one might allow himself more license in the t.ecHi'.bm of the high  board fence iu tlie rear of bis  properly than he would dare indulge iu on tbe front lawn. Now,  so far a-* conduct goes, Greenwood  is honest, doing what, she wishes  to do in Lhe sight of all men, hut  still a sharp distinction is generally drawn here between the front  of the prem i-"es and the rear.  Unfortunately it is one of the  characteristic-- of the Oriental to  rleligbt in depositing rubbish at  any point where it is more or less  conceal-, d. preferably somewhere  along tbe back yard fence, if there  is one. Of course it must be due  to this habit that it now becomes  necessary to delicately draw attention to the fact that there is  room for improvement, antl that  this improvement should take  place before thc advent of hot  weather. This is irnma hygienic  standpoint and is most important,  but the appearance of thc premises is also to be considered. Property owners in this city who care  for the front of their grounds and  buildings, leaving thc rest tc become a dumping ground, or, a  best, to be entirely neglected,  might be likened to the ostrich,  which is satisfied to conceal his  head. The back yards of Greenwood ar�� nearly all exposed to  view and  are,   some  of them, in  FATHER PAT  The most valuable citizen iu a  community, particularly a community that has its future still  before it, is the optimist. Tbe  pessimist may secure a reputation  for conservatism and his opinion  may be sought by manv, but it  takes an optimist to make a good  booster. And his greatest opportunities are certainly to be found  iu a miuing camp. He would not  shine as a mining engineer, unless one had properties for sale,  but be does more thau bis share  in advertising bis town, in generally advancing loral interests,  and in always maintaining ;i  cheerlul countenance.  This last is by no means to be  despised. The Bible mentions  the tact that oil " giveth a man a  cheerful countenance." We have  never seen it tried, but it is certain that there are some men  known to us all whose faces could  not be made to radiate by the ap  plication of the entire future  product of the Canada Western  Oil company���(advt.) Let two  of these fellows get an unfortunate between them and, unless  tbe optimist comes along inside  the hour, it is probable that there  will be another trunk packed.  Bul it in with the visitor that  thc optimist does his best work.  Tbis is not a case of thc stranger  being taken in either. We, all of  us, know that the possibilities of  Greenwood can not be overstated,  but the investigator and possible  investor is apt to be a man of  anything but a confiding nature.  He holds fast to his motto of believing nothing he hears and only  half of what he sees, hence it he  meets the fellow who  is forecast-  A most interesting book to  those who remember the early  days of Rossland and the Boundary country, by Mrs. Jerome Mer-  cier, has lately been published by  Minchin & Gibbs, Gloucester.  England���the life of the Rev.  Henry Irwin, B. A., better known  aB Father Pat. Few men have  left such a mark on a community  as did this good and kind clergyman. He was beloved by men  aud wi men'of all classes, and this  book should he in the hands of  all who knew and loved him. Tin-  preface by the bishop of the diocese, the Right Rev. John Dart,  D. D., is a worthy tribute to the  memory of the pioneer parson of  the pioneer mining district of  British Columbia. The book is  paper bound and illustrated with  views of the hero of the far west  and of the places in British" Columbia where he was best known.  Everybody  Agrees  that COD  LIVER OIL and IROM  are  beyond question tbe greatest medicines known. Then why does not  everybody fake Cod Livei Oil and  Iron? Simply because most people  cannot take the Oil and few can digest  the Iron in any ordinary form. These  difficulties have been entirely removed  by the introduction of FERROL, in  which the Iron is scientifically combined with the Oil, rendering the Oil  palatable and the Iron digestible.  WhUe  If will astonish most of the  people to be told that the British  government in addition to being  a maker of laws is the greatest  tailor in the world. The army  clothing factory in Pimlico is the  biggest tailor's shop in England.  Last year Tommy Atkins' tailor's  bill amounted to ,��335.375. During thc Boer war thc clothing of  the army cost nearly ,��5,000,000.  Trousers are the most costly item  in the soldier's wardrobe, and for  their nether garments last year  the nation had to pay uo less a  sum than ^73,278. This recalls  the fact that it is less than ninety  years since the British army first  substituted trousers for the old-  fashioned knee breeches.  Pacific Hotel  Gkibg & Mohribon, Prop.  The Pacific is the  Headquarters  f< r Commercial and Mining Men  Is steam- heated, electric lighted;  the rooms are large and cosy.  is manufactured from the best quality  of Cod Liver Oil (the whole of the OU)  and is richer in oil than any other  emulfion, and while it contains just the  right quantity of the best form of Iron  ind Phosphorus, it is so scientifically  prepared that not one person in a thousand finds  any trouble in  taking  it,  and infants digest it without difficulty.  Moreover the well-established value of  ihe   Oil   and    Iron    is    immensely  enhanced by the process of manufacture, and as the formula is freely exposed it is not to be wondered at that  physicians    everywhere    have    fully  endorsed FERROL and used it largely  in their practice.    FERROL is invaluable for the treatment of any kind of  Lung or Bronchial troubles, while for  wasting diseases it has no equal, and  "You Know What  You Take"  The Bast Cuisine between  Winnipeg and the Coast.

Secord, one of the best  known men in the county of Lincoln, died June 23rd after a short  illness. He was a great-grandson  of Laura Secord, the Canadian  heroine of the war of 1812, who,  at the risk of her life, tramped  miles through the bush to warn  tbe British troops of the approach  and attempted surprise of the  Americans under Colonel Boerst-  ler. The information led to the  surprise and utter rout of the invaders at the battle of Beaver  dams.    Tbe directors of the Le Roy  Roy Mining company announce  that they have made the necessary, arrangements for carrying  oh an extensive scheme of exploration and development at their  mines at Rossland. B. O. Work  will be started without delay, lt  will be remembered that the Le  Roi was inspected about three  months* ago by W. A. Carlyle,  one of its former managers, now  a consulting engineer with headquarters in London. Mr. Carlyle's  opinion, given after a thorough  examination, was that all that  was required to give Rossland's  oldest big mine a new lease of  vigorous life was the expenditure  of between $100,000 and $200,-  000 on development in directions  which he indicated. The character of the ore bodies, the history of the mine and the recent  development and discoveries in  the Centre Star and Le Roi No.  2, all alike preclude the idea that  the values were exhausted in the  mine that made Rossland.  strike for a distance of ten miles  is stndded with location monuments and posts, and there is not  a foot of vacant ground to be  had. A party of eighteen representative mining engineers of that  section was taken to the camp,  and on their return they declared  the showing to indicate probably  the richest surface gold deposit  in the world. A paper will be  published at once. Already the e  are several saloons and restaurants  in the camp. Town lots were put  on sale as soon as tbe .people began to arrive on the scene, and  the four lots on choicest corners  became the reward of those who  happened to be lucky with the  dice.  Once more the little inl mid of  St. Pierre, in tbe Gulf nf St.  Lawrence, belonging to France,  is in a state of acute discontent,  principally owing to the fact that  the French governmeut closed  the schools in which religion was  taught. Lying close to our own  island of New Foundland, this  island should belong to the Dominion, and Great Britain has  giveu so many small islands away  to other powers it is about time  she took isolated and neglected  chickens like St. Pierre under  her own wing.  Tay P. Graves, managing director of the Granby Consolidated, who has been laid up with  tvphoid fever for the past five  weeks, has recovered sufficiently  to take occasional drives. It will  probably be another fortnight before he is able to resume his usual  business activity.  THE ALBERTA  EXHIBITION  The dates for the Alberta Provincial exhibition at Calgary this  year are July 5th to 10th. Last  year tbe Dominion fair was held  at Calgary, aided by an extra  grant of ��50,000. so that this  year's fair would naturally be expected to -be much smaller, but  Irom present indications the l-)0)  exhibition will bo even bigger  and better than last year's. The  exhibition company is expending  $60,000 to make this possible.  Twenty-five thousand dollars will  be offered in prix.es, aud exhibitors  from all over Canada will compete. In the live stock department the horse exhibit will be an  important feature, and the array  of Clydesdales, Perchernns,  Shires and Belgians will be the  greatest ever seen at any of the  Canadian fairs. The cattle section will be strong, as will the  sheep, hogs and poultry. The attractions will be the equal of any  that appear at any of tbe large  exhibitions across the border.  Music will be provided by the  famous Navassar Ladies' band of  New York, as well as by the Calgary Citizens' band. The great  historical pageant will be the outstanding feature of the exhibition.  The pageant will illustrate the  development of Alberta from the  time the Indians roamed over the  prairies to the dresent day. This  parade will take place on the forenoon of the   opening  day,   July  5th: Indians will lead the procession, followed by missionaries,  fur traders, Northwest Mounted  Police and others in appropriate  costumes. Then will follow agricultural, live stock and other  parades, and finally an immense  automobile parade of fifty to  seventy-five autos. Moving pictures of tho pageant will be taken  and shown in all parts of the  world. Other important attractions at the big exhibition will  be good horse races, tbe C. W.  Parker shows, a sensational loop-  the-loop act and the Amciican  girl motor cyclist. Ru' e Shields,  the exhibition comedian, will be  the official announcer. He is supposed to have the strongest voice  in North America. Il.v.ird's  dogs and ponies will perforin  every afternoon and evening in  front of the grandstand.  Given line weather, the Alberta  I'rovincial exhibition ishould be a  grand success.  | Switzerland, Geneva in pat tic-  jular. is always associated with  clocks and watches, but it seems  tbat of recent years the industry  has suffered from foreign competition, the extent of which can be  seen from the fact that according  to a report recently issued bv the  Federal Government the best  watchmakers and clockmakers on  ���an average receive little more  than 30 francs a week, in place of  50 to 75 francs in days gone by.
