A. lyoaan &s Go;  .The Mayor, Aldermen Uesros-  ��� ers, Gulley, Sutherland and Kelson of the old council' were in  session oaf Monday evening last  to approve the minutes of their  last meeting. A communication  from Kossland containing the  wood by-law in force there was  handed on to the new council.  The financial statement and auditor's report were treated in like  manner. The Mayor spoke generously and the retiriug members  with Alderman Sutherland responded  All of the members of the new_  council were there to start out  well. The Mayor first and then  the Councillors 'together, each  with his right hand upheld, swore  to abide by the provisions of the  Municipal Act. Then followed  the Mayor's opening speech, to  his new board, He felt that he  might be congratulated on its  character and hoped for a good,  careful and progressive administration of the city's affairs To  tbe clerk he gave a copy of the  standing committees, which read  as" follows:  Finance���Gulley, Wilson and  Meyer.

The cast  of characters giyeu in this issue  needs   little   remark.  The play is deserving of   every   local' support.    The  members of the cliib have given generously not only of  their time but also of their effort and money,  to make  tne entertainment a huge success.    Last night   a   dress  rehearsal was held in the Auditorium.  " Recently   some  one   started a story that the players  were to benefit financially from the proceeds of the play.  A very small amount will be retained over the expenses -  of the trip to provide some necessary things for an entertainment wnich is expected to be given later, but eyery-  - thing over and above this amount will be donated to the  Anti-Tuberculosis Society for the support of the Sanitarium at Tranquille. - It is hoped that   the   receipts will  be such that this sum shall not be inconsiderable.

HOLTZ  To the annual congregational  meeting of St. Columba's church,  the managers were able on Mondav last to report several very interesting and gratulatory items.  The church debt reduced by $515,  is now almost at   the vanishing  point. The income of the church,  amouting to $2,356-55: was sufficient to meet all running expenses  and to give the minister and managers every encouragement and  a good beginning for 1908.    The  reports from the various societies  of   the   church,   in   every case,  shoWfd that the two indications  of progress���enlarged attendance  -and increased interest���weremore  than ever in evidence.    The condition of ihe church   is   one   for  congratulation to every one connected with the congregation.  For the reduction in the church  debt much credit is said to be due  to the Ladies' Aid Association  which has been taking special interest in this phase of the church's  work. But success in this as well  as every other branch of its activities, the congregation feel is  largely the result of the earnest  and devoted efforts of Mr. and Mrs.  McKee.  The annual meeting was presided over by Kenneth,McKenzie..  Its secretary was F. E. Brown  and the auditors appointed were  I. Crawford and F. E. Brown.  The following consitute the  board of managers for f he present  year: H. McCutcheon, K. McKenzie,. E, W. Bishop, C S. Hooper,  A. P. Augustine, S. E. Belt, D.  C. McRae,' 1. Crawford, J. i>.  Spence, C. J. Wilson, H. J. Clint,  andL. A. Smith.  ,The funeral of Mrs. Jennie  Holtz, ^who died on Friday last at  the home of- her sister-in-law,  Mrs. Ida Coutts; here, was held  from the Presbyterian church at  h alf-past one on Monday afternoon. Mrs. Holtz was 67 years  of age arid was for. 30 years a resident of Vdssar, Mich.; latterly  she . has been living with Mrs.  Coutts. Interment took place at  the Greenwood cemetery. J. F.  Gardiner, of the Dells, Oregon*  son of the deceased, arrived on  Sunday night to attend the funeral. James Marshall and wife  of Phoenix, were also relatives of  the deceased and were present.  The service was conducted by  Rev. M. D. McKee.  . Deceased was born in Scotland.  White letters are adorning the  store fronts 61 the city this week.  J. M. McEown,of Toronto, is the  artist.

As announced in last week's  issue the annual meeting of the  Dominion Copper Co. will be held  in Phoenix next Monday, and on  the same day the shareholders of  the ' Royal Victoria Mining Co.  will assemble here.  A report circulated yesterday stated  that the engineers of the Granby Cora  pany had been going over the property  of the Dominion Copper Company  at the Rawhide and Idaho mines. Mr.  Thomas when asked of the matter said  that so far as he knew yet it w.is  simply a friendly vit.it. There might  be something to say of the Company'*,  intentions after Monday.  i A largely attended meeting of  the Board of Trade, called for  last Saturday afternoon, in view  of the convention of the Associated Board-; of Trade now in session at Men ie was intent on doing  business. Fees entitling the  Greenwood Board to membership  in the Associated Boards were  ordered paid and President Russell appointed a delegate to the  convention now being held.  As it is earnestly wished to have  every citizen, interested in the  welfare of Greenwood, a member  of the' Board, a committee was  appointed to secure new members  and collect the regular fee.  A resolu lion adopted by the  beard endorsed the action taken  by a number of boards in the  Kootenay asking for a continuance for five years of the lead  bounty, and the employment in  this way of a sum not exceeding  $200,000 a year. A copy of this  resolution was forwarded to Duncan Ross, M.P.  .  With a view to improving the  conditions ot the industry, upon  which this community depends  for its prosperity, the following  resolution was introduced and  after discussion adopted.  That this Board of Trade regrets the closing of the mines  and smelter of tbe B.C. Copper  Company, Ltd.  That this Board desires to do  all iu its power- towards building  up of loyal, prosperous and stable  mining communities in this district, as in it each member of the  Board.is deeply interested.  That this Board assures the B.C.  Copper Coy. that it is friendly  to the Company; and that the  Company can rely on the hearty  support of this Board and its cooperation in any action taken by  the company in securiag loyal,  stable mining conditions at its  mines and smelter.  And that a copy of this resolution be forwarded to the General  Manager of tbe Company.  Mr.   McAllister  was sent   far  and  the resolution  was read  to  him.    Oa being- asked to address  the Board he said that on behalf  of the B.C.   Copper   Co. it   gave  him great pleasure to receive the  resolution,   and   as   he expected  shortly to be in conference  with  his Board of Directors he  would  place it before them.    The resolution was the  more acceptable,  as it stood in brief for the condition his Company proposed lo  acquire, viz.: the establishment of a  loyal, prosperous and stable mining and smelting  industry,   and  towards this end it was in everyone's   interest  to  pull  together.  Towards the attainment of stability the B.C. Copper Co.now had  assurance of  adequate   transportation facilities  and ample  fuel  supply, lhe lack  of which   had  so   seriously   handicapped  them  in   the   past, but  in  addition *o  this was required the honest cooperation of the employees.  He reminded the Board tbat  when the expenses of production  increased in other industries,such  increase was usually met with an  increased price to tho consumer,  but in the case of his company  the return was limited by theval-  Wirt us for Quotations  ��� Our facilities for buying  Dominion, B.C., or  Granby Stocks  on the curb in New York '  or Boston are unequalled '  Eveu our competitors  acknowledge that we  can buy these stocks  cheaper than t'hey.

A later meeting held on Tuesday afternoon endorsed tbe proceedings of Saturday's meetiug  and decided that the same should  be given to the local papers for  publication,  SILVER SPRING LICENSE.  In   the  appeal   of   the Silver  SgringiJrewery from the refusal  of the License Commissioners   to  grant   them a   wholesale   liquor  license; His Honour Judge Brown  his given the following judgment:  "I think this appeal should be  allowed.   The only evidence derogatory to Hortmann, the applicant for a license herein, is   tb.it  of James Poggi, and on   acciuit  of a serious disagreement between  him and Hartmann ove* a matter  of business eighteen   tn >nths   or  two years ago,  the   evidence   of  Poggi is, I think, too biased to be  of auy value.    His  statement as  to immoral conduct on the premises did not bear analysis at   all  and was, I believe, unfounded. If  I could see any valid reasonable  grounds on which   to   refuse   a  license to Hartmann, I she ul! be  loath to disturb  the decisiou   of  the license commissioners,but np-  on the eyidence adduced, I think  he is entitled to a  wholesale liquor license under the provisions of  the   Provincial    Liquor   License  Act, and   so   find.    The   appeal  will be allowed.

THE ALL-RED ROUTE  SUBSCRIPTIONS IN ADVANCE.  Pub Ybak ���    J 80  Six Months ���.��� 1 S5  To FOBUIOW COUNTKIBB v.... 2 58  Editor  A. D. Macfarlane  LABEL>  FRIDAY,  JANUARY 24,1908.  THE NATAL ACT.  ISlews from Victoria states that  the Natal Act will be introduced  and if disallowed at Ottawa will  be passed and repassed until it  becomes effectives This is all  nonsense. The bill never was  disallowed at Ottawa and needs  only the sincerity of the McBride  government to put it in operation.  The step they are now taking is  exactly what was demanded by  the liberal convention held in  October last at Vancouver. The  opposition will see to it now that  there is no shuffle between the  premier and Lieutenant-Governor  Dunsmuir.  WELCOME NEWS.  The premier .of Japan in a  speech, cabled from Tokio on  Saturday last, declares that immigration problems had been  practically settled with Canada,  If this is so, it's a pretty good  vindication of the Lemieux embassy. It is at any rate a fairly  satisfactory refutation ot reckless  reports circulated by the press  hostile to the Canadian grovern-  ment concerning the willingness  of Japan to treat with a representative of the Canadian government.  In the view of the criticism of  the All-Red Route coming from  the conservative benches at Ot-  tawa and fromi the conservative  press in many places, the following from the Victoria Daily  Colonist is notable:  The opponents of the ������All-Red"  project have met a foeman worthy  of their steel in Lord Strathcona.  This eminent man of affairs persists in declaring that the scheme  is not only, thoroughly feasible  but'a pressing necessity in the  interests of the empire. He  points out that the recent agreement between German steamship  companies has an extremely important bearing on the subject.  As Lord Strathcona, when quite  a youth, expunged the word  "fail" from bis vocabularly, the  circumstance that he bas set his  hand to this particular task is  calculated to at least give his opponents an uneasy quarter of an  hour.  It is hardly necessary to rema'rk  that the All-Red Route is a  scheme which has the unofficial  endorsation of the Laurier government to provide a 24-knot  steamship service across ttie  Atlantic.  Canadian Companies to Blame for the  Extraordinary Invasion of Orientals  The Sovereign Bank of Canada  is being absorbed by the other  Canadian banks. The assets of  the Bank will be sufficient to meet  all liabilities including the investments of stockholders.  The Manitoba Government has  been turning handsprings on the  education question again. A  measure to introduce compulsory  education into the laws of Manitoba was rejectei by the legislature last week. The Free Press  commenting on it says :  ���'Jack Cade, if he were living,  would have felt entirely at home  as a member on the Governmeut  side of the Manitoba Legislature,  voting against compulsory education. Said Cade: 'He can write  and read ! O, monstrous ! Away  with him, I say !   Hang him !' "  The report of W. L. Mackenzie  King, the royal commissioner appointed to inquire into the influx  of oriental labor into Canada, was  presented to parliament Monday.  After a searching inquiry into tbe  vexed problems of Japanese immigration, the commissioner  throws a new light on the cause  for the sudden increase of Japanese landing in British Columbia  during the last summer.  The report of Mr. King establishes that the Japanese goVerii;  ment has been observing th?  agreement to restrict immigration  and that the departure of the Japanese foreign office in April last  from the regulations hitherto in  force was made only at 'the re-,  quest of the Canadian Nippon  Steamship company backed ;by  the Canadian Pacific railway and  other influential Canadian interests; which represented at Tokio  that Japanese labor was needed  and desired in this'country.' "-'���/'-'  "If there was a change," says  Mr. King, "in the policy of Japan,  it was not one which could adversely affect the interests of this  country without a Canadian citizen or- -a .Canadian corporation  first placing upo'n it the seal of  his or its approval."  In other words, Mr.yKing finds  that no malice on the part of the  Japanese government, or any desire to alter its policy of restraining immigration, as shown during  the preceding six years, cau be  charged, and the cause of .the influx that has agitated British  Columbia is traceable to Canadian  sources.  In his analysis of the extent of  Japanese immigration of the first  10 months of last year Mr. King  finds that out of a total of 8121  only 4429 remained in Canada. Of  this -total 2779 came from the  Hawaiian islands, and only 1641  from Japan direct. Of this latter  number 900 were under contract  for the Canadian Pacific railway,-  and SOO were students and merchants.  Summarizing the figures ofthe  arrivals from Japan from 1901 up  to January 1st, 1907, Mr, King  finds that they would represent  from 4000 to 4500. Of these a  large proportion found their way  to the United States. The number of Japanese in British Columbia in January, 1907, was less than  7500.  The arrival in British Columbia, therefore, of 812L Japanese,  in the 10 months following, naturally caused alarm, and if anything more were needed to occasion uneasiness, it was to be found  in the simultaneous arrival from  the orient of Hindus by hundreds,  aud Chinese in larger numbers  than iu preceding years.  Besides the contract with the  Canadian Pacific railway, the  Nippon company obtained assurances of a contract with James  Dunsmuir, president of the Wellington Colliery company and  Lieutenant Governor of British  Columbia, for the supply of Miners  from Japan. Application was  made to the Grand Trunk.Pacific  for a contract, but the answer  was noncommittal.

The regular dance of the Entre  Nous danciug club on Wednesday  night was attended by more than  twice the number at the first  dance. Miss Hartmann at the  piano and Frank Moore with, the  trap drum provided music that  made the evening delightful.  The dances are to be held every  Wednesday night in the Masonic  Hall and every assurance of good  dance music is given the devotees  of the light fantastic.

Robert;is  looking to a more lucrative business but asserts that he will do  his utmost to retain his type fingers in their usual condition. He  has been an industrous - boy and  we can predict for him a brilliant  academic career.  On Friday last over 25 couples  attended the dance iH the Eagles-  hall. and the three essentials for'  a successful dance were very  prominent, viz.: Good floor, good  music, good time. The music  consisted of three pieces, .piano,  violin and drums. Miss Minnie  Hart, who presided at the piano,  is a graduate of the Royal College  of Music, London, England, aad  jjndoubtedly operates vyith taste  and "talent;"' Her. sister, Miss  Cissy Hart, with the violin, certainly shows her gift in this  direction; whilst H. Herbs keeps  the cfowdin good? tune with the  tap of the drums. These dances  are held every Friday evening in  the Eagles' hall under the" direction of Walter Murray.'; Any  parties contemplating private or  public dances should certainly interview the Friday night orches-  tra* who'se talent is second to none  in the Boundary.
