SNEVE-BOE  CIVIC ELECTION  HOTLY FOUGHT  Mayor Bunting Elected by Good Majority���Four New Members in  Council���Results in Phoenix  Give Matheson Winner  ELECTION SQUIBS  From  tbe Mass  Meeting  Held  Wednesday  Night  on  If You Wish  to  Yesterday's election was a surprise. The return of Mayor Bunting was'expected but even his  most optimistic supporters did  not suppose that his majority  would be so large nor that his  ticket would win out so sweeping-  ly. James Sutherland alone  broke the ranks and as he is. a  congenial spirit, there ought to  be peace and harmony and no  "mind readers" in the council of  1908; besides these men Alderman Gulley is the only member  of the old council returned.  The election indicates the decided opinion of the electors in  favor' Of a careful' yet progressive  administration of the city's affairs  That the defeat had to be borne  by Robert Wood is to be regretted  as the people of this city are deeply sensible of the personal sacrifice he has; endured, that Greenwood m\g}xigo ahead'. Thecam-  paigh was not against Mr. Weed,  personally at all, and under different circumstances, there is no  man in Gr^hwood,yto whom the  citizens would more'willingly do  honor.  i  -  The other great surprise was  the defeat of Duncan Mcintosh in  the north ward.  Like Mr. Wood,  he has been, and yet will be, one  of   Greenwood's   boosters.     He  would certainly have made goed  at the council board.    Alderman  Nelson  has   also  been   a   good  councillor and will be missed in  the council.  Four of the new council ar^  beginners. W. B. Fleming's big1  vote in the south ward buows his  popularity, and C. J. Wilson's  poll in the north comes next with  a like indication. A. F. H.  Meyer and E. R. Mortimer have  their civic reputations io make.  The results are as follows:  FOR MAYOR    ���  Bunting-  97  Wood '  62  Majority  35  ALDERMEN���NORTH WARD  Wilson, C.J .52  '  Meyer  ,  41  Mortimer  36  Mcintosh..  34  Wellwood ;  2?

A little more experience  would make him a ��� winner there  too.  At the mention of water,. A. S.  Black, William Vaux and Cap A.  Chapelle left the hall. It was  too dry for them.  T. M. Gulley, A.

The ex-  alderman was certainly in fighting trim and he rolled out bundles  of amusement.  Robert Wood's enthusiasm and  energy cannot be doubted. Duncan Mcintosh's tribute to the old  "war horse" was a fine thing,  splendidly done.

Perhaps if the whole of his remarks  had been so well understood, it  would have spoiled the fun.  Dr. Spankie's ruling was correct. He made a good chairman,  and with the way,-the;-thing  evolved itself no injustice was  done. It's always best to stick to  your program.  The little flourish following  Dr. J. E. Spankie's ruling was  dramatic. Alderman Fleming  appeared in the wings and with a  wave of the hand said: ' "Boys,  I'll be there too." And!' he was.  Mayor Bunting's business-like  exposition of the city's business  and particularly of the development of the water supply from'  Twin, Lynn, and Providence  creeks was clear-headed and  made votes for him. ,  Duncan Mcintosh said that  within two months a proposition  would be laid before the people of  Greenwood to build this tunnel,  and all the promoters asked was  the moral support of the people.  If we don't giye them that, we're  chumps, alright alright.  Mayor Bunting declared for  the best possible police officers  and system. Thfe police force  seems to be about half an issue  in an election. Why all the  dodging? If the police officer  isn't alright, he ought to be told  so, and if he is, he ought to.have  something better than a halfhearted support and defence.  Duncan Mcintosh said we'd  never see Greenwood an open town  again. This is a good line of  talk. After all, what we. all  want is a decent town, a clean  town and a town that we can all  be proud of.

When a boy in a crowded city  throws a stone he never can tell  whether he is going to be applauded for making a good shot  or fined for breaking a window.  It is much the same in journalism.  The illustration and the remark  are not our own, but ibey might  be anybody's, and we use them  for our purpose. What the  editor considered a very harmless  paragraph in last week's issue  was made the occasion by at least  two men for remark as to what  the Times should print. The  paragraph may be recognized by  the fact that it contained quota-1  tions from Bret Harte's famous  line:  " For   ways  that   are dark, and tricks  that are vain,"  and while the criticism  made of  m  this g.f.j- is not taken too seriously by the editor, it is perhaps  well thai, alter occupying this  position for three months the  editor of this paper should make  some statement of its policy and  pretensions.  paper is held at the present time  by Duncan Ross, M. P. In our  exchanges from time to time full  advantage is taken of this fact.  We do not for one moment evade  the issue that it entails. Yet Mr.  Ross has never since the present  management began, dictated for  one moment the policy -of. this  paper. That it should be good,  serving the best interests of the  community stands as his only  expressed desire to the present  editor. That being so, the editor  has always considered and is today of the opinion, that he has  free and perfect right to use his  best judgment as to what causes  it will advocate and what oppose.  In politics and out of it, in  every one of the myriad questions  ���personal, social aud" political���  that confront the newspaper  public today, tbis paper has only  one great principle���fair play.  To capital and to organized labor  alike it will be not only fair but*  independent. It believes in organized labor and it certainly  recognizes the fact that the world  today is operating- under the so-  called capitalistic system. In  Cauada this paper looks for and  will advocate the careful control  of both these great social forces  by the government of the people  and will always insist on compliance from them with the laws  of the land.  Further, it is a Canadian paper.  The Boundary country is a part  of the Dominion of Canada and  not an annex to the United States,  and with all due respect to that  portion of our population born  acros? the line, we must do everything in our power to foster and  develop here a Canadian national  spirit. And perhaps it may not  be out of place to insist here that  Canadianism if it means anything  at all means both the strict observance and the enforcement of  our country's laws.  We look for the progress of this  common ity. Full of faith in  Greenwood and in the wonderful  riches of our great ore deposits,  with real optimism for the future  co-operation of all the differing  elements which make up a mining  camp, we hope to be ready to assist every reasonable, practical  scheme to improve the conditions  Phoenix is a very bad village.  With sneak thieves and poultry  snatchers abroad,' the devil at  the Pioneer had better invest in a  "scrub" or they'll be swiping the  ink from under his finger nails.  A Manitoba editor throws up  the sponge with the remark "that  it don't pay to run a paper in a  community where the people's  literature is composed of Tim  Eaton's sweat foundry catalogue  and an almanac, and where the  business men pick their teeth  with a tail of a herring."  The Mining World this week  has the following to say x>f the  copper prospects: Just now, after  two or three months of retrench-  mej^pin production and "house-  cleaning," the copper trade is  assuming^ a somewhat better  atmospheric appearance. Prices  show a fractional recovery, and  with easier money even the copper share market is improving.  Some time ago we 'suggested that  the price of the metal would  eventually be held around 14 or  15 cents per pound. So far there  has been no reason to change our  early opinion; and if we mistake  not, the undercurrent in tbe copper market will lead to continued  improvement.    \  WERE  I  SAE  DAFT  Op"0O0O0OOOO0<>0O0<H>0-0<KKK>0<>  |   HOME-MADE  4' PI "  '|  0<XM)O<><XKKM>0<>O<>0<><>0OOO0<KK>  Yesterday the Times received  a story from one of Boundary's  talented authors.

There is no way of making Tatting  friends like "Making Good;" and Doctor  Pierce's medicines well exemplify this,  and their friends, after more than two  decades of popularity, are numbered by  the hundreds of thousands. They have  "made good" and they have not made  drunkards.  A good, htonest, sonare-deal medicine of  known composition is Dr. Pierce's Golden  Medical Discovery. It still enjoys an im-  roense sale, while most of the preparations that have come into prominence in  the earlier period of its popularity have  *gone by the board" and are never mora  heard of. There must be some reason for  this long-time popularity and that is to  be found ia Its superior merits. When  once given a fair trial for weak stomach,  or for liver and blood affections, its stipe-,  rjor curative qualities are soon manifest;  lience it ha.s survived and grrown in popular favbr, while scores of less meritorious  articles have suddenly flashed into favor  for a brief period and then been as soon  forgotten.  For a torpid liver with its attendant  indigestion, dyspepsia, headache, perhaps dizziness, foul breath, nasty coated  tongue, with bitter taste, loss of appetite,  With distress after eating, nervousness  'and debility, nothing is so good as Dr.  Pierce's Golden Medical Discovery. It's  un honest, square-deal medicine with all  its ingredients printed on bottle-wrapper  ��� no secret, no hocus-pocus humbug,  therefore don't accept a substitute that  the dealer may possibly make a little bigger profit. Insist on your right to huve  what you call for.  Don't buy Dr. Pierce's Favorite Prescription expecting it to prove a "cure-all." It  is only advised for woman's special ailments. It makes weak women strong and  s*ck women well. Less advertised than  some preparations sold for like purposes,  its sterling curative virtues still maintain  its position in the front ranks, where it  stood over two decades ago. As an invigorating tonic and strengthening nervine it is unequaled. It won't satisfy those  wh.o want��booze,1" for there is not a drop  of alcohol in it.  Dr. Pierce's Pleasant Pellet*, the original Little Liver Pills, although the first  pill of their kind in the market, still lead,  and when once tried are ever afterwards  in favor. Easy to take as candy���one to  three a dose. Much imitated hut -never  equaled.  THE  COPPER  HANDBOOK  (New edition issued Nov. IS, 1906)  Is a dozen books in one, covering lhe  history.
