At 10*30* last Saturday night  three men rode in to the quiet  little village of Bridesville on the  Great Northern, and leaving their  horses across the street, walked  into the store and postofiice and  held up the proprietor and the  local agent of the G.N.R.  One of the victims endeavored  to get away but was stopped by a  threat to shoot from one' of the  robbers.  The booty secured amounted to  $70; four dollars-of which was  taken frpm the Agent who had  the good luck to have a $100 roll,  stowed away iu an inside pocket,  overlooked by the desperados.  The three highwaymen are  described as a tall man in black  wool chaps and two men of medium height wearing plain leather  chaps ; and all were armed with  44 Colt revolvers. .All were masked.  On leaving Bridesville they  started in the 'direction of Rock  dreek tjut are supposed to have  made a detour to re-cross ythe  Boundary line, as local people are  satisfied that they 'belong to the  other side. ,  Immediately after the hold-up  Spokane and Oroville were reached by wire, but it>was found impossible to get word to Greenwood  or Midway as the operators had  left their stations ou tb e departure of the evediug train. '  ^���T^e"nW#w#-6itv fh^rolfter^  reached; Greenwood: 6nf -Mondiay  morning, and Provincial Constable Aston, of Midway, left for  the scene on Monday evening's  train,      >  With a two-day's start a successful get-away looks pretty certain, and the long-suffering people of tha Boundary will be asked  to jog along and just wait to  see who will be the next victim  of governmental neglect.  In the present instance we are  shown that the police protection  of the Boundary remains in the  same disastrous state of inefficiency as in the recent deplorable  outrages along the line.  Onr provincial government  boasts ef a tremendous surplus  in tbe treasury and a very large  portion of the same is drawn  from the Boundary district where  life and property are in a state of  constant jeopardy, solely from  the lack of an efficient police patrol.  , What the Boundary wants ia a  body of competent men stationed  at various unprotected points,  and we know a number of men  whose appointment to the force  would mean a constant warning  for the thief and the thug to keep  away.  The first,duty of a government  is the protectien of life and property, and in that respect the  powers at Victoria have shown  an exasperating disregard for the  welfare of the Boundary.  Canada Western Oil Co,  The affairs of the Canada Western Oil Co.. which have been  in litigation for several years are  now in a very fair way to be  straightened out.        V ,  The company is composed largely of Greenjwood me�� who hold  an eight-fifteenth: interest in 4000  acres of oil-bearing la^ds in the  Flathead Country, East Kootenay; 617 acres of which;has never  been in dispute. .        '.fi-  The full court has upheld the  decision of Judge Wilsoh, and the  appeal ot John Watt and others  agaiiiHt the Leckie, Tapper, Mc-  Vittie, Greenwood andiCranbrook  Syndicates has been fallowed.  This extensive oil-beawng property has been reported oh by  such scientific men a| T. H.  Thompson,' of Spokau$>atid Dr.  Selwyn, of the Dominio'!

The Store of Quality,  v  Next Door to Post Office.  5<^000oooopoo<>o<><>-^oo��o^  Martin Burrell, recently elected  as member for Yale-Cariboo, was  tendered a banquet last Wednesday in the Granby hotel at Grand  Forks. Au exchange informs us  that "the toast to Mr. Burrell  was drank amid much enthus.  iasm," t�� which Mr. Burrell replied in a cheerful manner ; and  the Reverend *W. R. Ross, Ernest  Miller, aad J. Peck McSwaine,  also addressed the meeting.  The Annual Xmas Tree  And Dntertaiment given by  the Methodist Sunday School  will be held as usual on Xmas  Night, Dec. 25th. No ad-  I mission���but collection taken  While silver has been steadily  dropping in price owing to the  decrease in exportation t�� Asia  and the decreased demand for silver in the arts, the price of th��  baser metals has been steadily  increasing.  The Polraatier Sisters,  While the program of the Polmatier  Sisters is one of the highest class, it is  so varied and original in its pretentat-  ion that everyone is appealed to, no  matter what his station in life may be  from the next, will have reasons to regret.'  Magnificent orchestral selections from  the worlds famous operas to the whistling kind of popular music there is ever  the arts of the master in evidence of times heavy classical selections receive  but scant appreciation in contrast to  the effect of popular air.  An incident is here recalled, illustrating this fact. It was in the hotel par -  lour the famous Polmatier Sisters had  just rendered one of Wagner's most  difficult pieces and amurmur of applause  followed them very softly and tenderly, like a; sweetly tremulous old  voice reciting pathetic murmurs the orchestra sent the plaintive melody of  " My old Kentucky Home" singing  through the room the chatter  ceased, everv mind was busy with murmurs and the air was filled with the  scent of vanished clover the warm fragrance of new mown hay, and the echo  of the babbling brooks. The Bimple  tune knocked at the door of every heart  and the ghost of dead days came throbbing- forth. To answer such in the mysterious charm of music those who miss  the Polmatier Sisters orchestra aud concert company on Monday evening ne.*tt,  at th�� Auditorium, will have reasons to  regret.  The Greenwood stores at this  season are pictures of delight,  and for artistic display, taste, elegance, and propriety of selection  the stocks and assortment sof'the  many and varied wares compare  most favorably with those seen in  even the big metropolitan establishments ; and are altogether  superior to what would be expected by those who are unacquainted with the business people of  Greenwood,i  The Russell-Law-Caulfield company have a tremendous stock of  everything needed for the home.  They carry evertbing in house-  furnishings from stoves to the  most beautiful silver-ware : a  complete stock of dry goods, and  their*-grocery department is-one  of the best appointed in all the  province.  The display, at Barolay & Co's.  is a study in taste and elegance,  and the quality and assortment of  their goods is fairly manifested  in their artistic window decorations. ���  A. h. White at the Boundary's  Big Emporium, has one of the  biggest stores of the kind to be  seen in any city in the* couutry,  with a range of goods of almost  infinite variety. �����������������  Their special for the week is a  reduction sale of diamonds.  Hunter-Kendrick Co?s big store  is full of goods and their lines in  drv goods, groceries' and hardware are most complete.  A visit to Hunter-Kendrick's is  necessary to realize what' Greenwood has tp offer fo- the Christmas shopper.  Courts are Busy,  The County Court officials have  had a busy week disposing of a  grist of cases of more or less interest.  On the 21st John Gillis appeared before his honor, Judge Brown,  under the Speedy Trial's Act, to  answer to the serious charge of  stealing a horse from Henry Nelson, of Teroda Creek, at. the Spokane hotel, Midway, on the 15th  inst.  Gillis was committed by J R.  Ferguson, J.P., of Midway/and  elected to be tried speedily.  Considering the fact that the  owner had recovered his animal  after a short chase, the accused  was released on suspended sentence and will appear again at  the end of three month's time.  On Tuesday the suit of Birch  vs. Brown engrossed the attention  ��f the court.  This is a dispute concerning  the ownership of a trunk and  various sundries held in lieu of  contra accounts, and the array of  legal talent engaged would indicate that the parties i�� contention have taken a very serious  view of the affair.  The discussion of the entrancing details was adjourned to the  24th.  BLASTING FATALITY  Y..-. In. furniturevand ythose appur-  tenances which hea-utify the home.  T. M. Gulley & Co.'have a stock  that is not excelled .at any point  in the whole Interior.^ We .commend the attention of our readers  to the exhibit" of tugs, carpets  and linoleums to be seen at T.M.  Gulley's. ���������"���'������*  Greenwood's two splendid phar-  maeys are a credit to the city ;  their stocks of drugs and druggist's sundries are all that conld  be desired, and skilled chemists  are in charge:of . the dispensing  departments, where all prescriptions receive the most careful and  prompt attenti��n.  Jaynes & Son have a stock of  fresh and dainty groceries that  would tickle the palate of an epicure. ��� - ���  A. Logan and Co, are handsomely fitted up in their new  store, their stock -of jewellery,  watches, etc., is quite complete  while their beautiful lines ot  Dresden china, v cut glass and  hand-painted china are among  the most delightful articles in  Xmas goods.  P. W. George and Co. have tbe  biggest and highest-classed stock  of gent's furnishing goods in the  whole Interior of B.C. A call at  this splendidly appointed store  will show you that they have  everything tbat may be desired  in the way of men's apparel.  For Christmas toys, novelties,  books, stationery and fancy goods  and all varieties of presents,beau-  ful and useful, the stores of McRae Bros., and "J. L. Coles can  compare with the main warehouse of old Santa Claus himself,  for fhey have everything to delight the heafts of youth and  those of more discerning years.  The Greenwood Liquor Co. has  the biggest, and choicest stock of  wet groceries in all this neck of  the woods, and a Christmas hamper from McCreath's will help  you to appreciate the bright sunshine of the Boundary.  A look into P. Burn's & Co's  market recalls the old ditty of the  fox and the moonlight night, for  the fat goose, the plump chicken  and the once lordly gobbler, together with the juicy sirl��in and  Public Holidays.  Saturday, December 26th and  Saturday, January 2nd have been  declared public holidays by the  Lieutenant-Governor ef British  Columbia.        ��� '  Two Men Killed in Phoenix  Mine.       <  Charles Johnson and John P.  Anderson, miners employed in  the Granby mines at.Phoenix,  met their death on Saturday ev.  emng in winze 94, No. 2 funnel.  The two men had nineteen holes  to shoot and had made careful  preparations for the firing, with  one fatal exception, the necessity  of using fuses of sufficient length  to light the large number of charges and leave time for a safe retreat.  The bodies were found by the  shift boss, and four holes were*  discovered which had not been  spit, and it is taken that the cut-  holes went before the men had  time to light them.  An investigation was held by  Coroner Black, of Greenwood,  who concluded that an inquest  was not necessary.  a great variety of all the other  choicest meats are there, while  fish, both finned and shelled are  shown new drawn from the Poast.  Of course the first thing to he  consideredojuXmasday is- what,  are you going t�� eat?  ���Drop into the 'Pacific or the  Windsor Cafe and examine their  Christmas bills-of-fare. '  . The Phoenix Brewing Ce. have  special-.assortments of wholesome Boundary-made goods for  the Christmas trade, and the  hotels have made special preparations for the day.*  We are to have a real old-fash-  CJhristmas wiih the merry jingle  ot the sleigh-bells ; get a cutter  for two, or a sleigh for the family; don't forget those invitations  or the entertainments, and you'll  have the merriest kind of a Merry  Christmas which -The Times''  extends to all.  Duty on Lead and Zinc,  The American Mining Congress  in session at Pittsburg has - forwarded a resolution to the Ways  and Mean's committee of the  House of Representatives declaring that any reduction in the present tariff on imported ores containing lead will mean a hardship on American miners.  They are also asking Congress  to impose such a duty on all zinc'  ores as will protect the interests  of'those engaged in the production of that metal.    .  The Alaska Pacific Yukon Exposition will be the first world's  fair to be complete in advance of  the opening date.  The value of  limestone  quarried'in the U.S. iu 1907 amounted to $31,737,731 exclusive of that -  used in the manufacture of Portland cement.  The question of the conservatism of the coal supply in the  U.S. was discussed at the American Mining Congress.       >  The Christmas tree of the Presbyterian Sunday school on Tuesday evening was a very delightful entertainment and was. greatly enjoyed by the children and  those of maturer yea!rs who had  the good fortune of attending.  The success of the entertainment  is due to the great pains taken by  Mrs. McCutcheon in training the  children.  Sleighs for bovs girls, and babies. Goods right, pieces rig Ut,'  at McRae Bros.

ON THE EIGHTH DAY.  We are always   pleased   to see  our reports of Boundary   mining  properties ia the daily press, but  when a front page   article   from  the Boundary Creek Times appears  eight days later as   a   special to  the Nelson Daily News from   its  Grand Forks' correspondent   our  cup of joy is filled to overflowing.  We congratulate the News on  its returning spirit of progressive-  ness, but beg to   be   allowed   to  suggest that the management pay  more attention to their Boundary  exchanges.  That would be cheaper tban  their antiquated system of paying unprofessional individuals for  news to which the world is welcome, and which appears in Denver ahead of our one district  daily paper.  Brazil and the Argentine are  at arm's length as a result ot  jealousy over the increase of naval forces. But few countries have  made as rapid progress in the  fast decade as these two South American nations and a war between  tbe two at this time would be a  tremendous set-back to the commerce of the Southern hemisphere.  The Select Committee of the  House bf Congress has agreed upon a report calling upon the President to submit to Congress the  information on which he based  his insinuation that members of  the House were afraid of being  investigated by thie secret service.

Many and  many a case of contagious disease  might be traced to the handling  of dirty money.
