The annnal meeting of the Providence Mining company was held Tuesday last. There was a good attendance ofJocal shareholders at .the'tneet-  ing, as'well^as those representing the  Chicago interests in'the company. The  reports of the managing director, the  superintendent, and the balance sheet  for the ^ past year, were read and  adopted. Directors were appointed to  fill the statutory vacancies on the  board, the following being the complete board of directors:  M. F. Madden, president and managing director. ,  Dr. Frank Brynes, vice-president. ������  J. B. Heeney, secretary-treasurer.  Directors���D. B. Scuttly, H. J.-Fitz-  gerald, Franklin Rudolph) W. S.  Macey, J. H.  Hiidrith,  M. S Madden.  Below will be found the balance  sheet and the superintendent's report:  ,   -        SUPERINTENDENT'S REPORT  Gentlemen : I beg herewith to offer a condensed'report of the work performed under my supervision in the  Providence Mine from November 1st,  1904, when I undertook the management of the mine, to the 30th day of  September, 1905.  I found the mine in very poor shape,  all available ore "was on the 300-foot  level, arid was. ,43 feet long, 12 feet  ���high and.6 inches in thickness,. This  ore I stoped and shipped.  I started crosscutting at several  places on the surface of the claim, and  did much work thereon, working until  snow fell, and I succeeded in finding  ore ou the surface south of the entrance  of what is now called the No 2 tunnel  (the 300 foot level), and I stripped the  wash off and opened the vein up for 100  feet, stoping down for 12 feet, the vein  being about 8 inches in thickness. This  ore I shipped.  After demonstrating that this ore  was continuous on the surface, I  started a drift on the No. 4 (200-foot  level, from the point where the previous work had ceased, and running  south passed through the dyke, which  was about twenty feet in thickness,  and-immediately encountered ore.   I examined the north drift of the No.  4 level and drove this for about 25 feet,  but found no ore. There was a break.  I ran three upraises, about 60 feet, but  without results.  To dale I have drifted on the 200-  foot level \347 feet, crosscut 20 feet,  sunk 12 feet and raised 30 feet.  On the 300-foot level I have drifted  south 300 feet (this drift is about 14  feet high), raised 20 feet, drifted north  42 feet, and made three raises of 30  feet each.  I have sunk the main shaft 75 feet  and crosscut to the ore 120 feet. I have  drifted on, the 400-foot level. 286 feet,  14-feet high, sunk a winze 26 feet,  raised 100 feet, and widened drift 150  feet. I also timbered and put in  chutes on the 200-foot level 130 feet,  timbered and put in sill floor And  chutes on the 300 foot level 185 feet,  and timbered and put in chutes on the  400 foot level 190 feet.  In addition to this I did a consider-  able^mouut of surface work, includ-.  ing cuts. The following is a memo of  the cost of the above work :  500 feet drifting at S24. 7 . $13,920  955 feet drifts and tunnels at  S12    11.460  160 feet open cut at $6.         960  313 feet open cut at SI  ..        213  1200 feet ditch at SI..      1,200  75 feet shaft at S20      1,500  12 feet shaft at S20  ...... 240  329.593  During this period  I mined 657 tons  Of ore at an  average cost per ton of  S19.83, "  ,,  In   addition,  during   the year,   the  mine   buildings have  been   improved  and  an up-to-date plant, including a  new boiler and air cotrpressor and  1,200 feet of piping for water** supply,  has been installed.  The mine at the present time is in  much better condition than when I first  took charge and will bear inspection  by the Board.  I would respectfully recommend that  the Board take up the question of installing a complete electric plant, including a shaft house, drying room  and ofiice building1, as the present supply of wood is beginning to become  very limited. I estimate that these improvements would coac in the neigh-  bornood of 830,000.  In conclusion, I would ask to point  out that, owing to the friction in the  directorate of the company, the mine  was practically running only seven  months out of the eleven months  covered by this report.        *  All of which is respectfully submitted.    Yours obediently,  P. J. Dermody, Superintendent.  ' auditor's report.  , Gentlemen : I beg to report having  completed my audit of your books for  the year ending September 30, 1905,  and hand you herewith copy of balance sheet and profit and loss account.  On referring to the balance sheet  you will find included in the assets  " Diamond Claim, $8,000." The stock  issued in payment of this claim is also  included ,in the liabilities. I understand the litigation in connection with  the purchase of this'claim is not yet  settled, consequently these entries-can-  not.be removed from your books.  You will also notice included in the  assets is an item of "$516.16, Suspense  Account." This is for disbursements  in connection with litigation and before passing the expenditure it will be  necessary for me to look-.thoroughly  into the legal aspect of the same, consequently I think it will be better for  the shareholders to deal with this  item.  A considerable amount has been  written off for.depreciation, and'you  are to be congratulated onr having directors who take* such a conservative  view of your affairs.  All statutory requirements have bee-  complied wilh, except the registration  of a list of your directors. This should  be attended to after your next annual  meeting. Respectfully submitted,  E. R.

During- the past few weeks' a  number of prominent men have  visited Greenwood and surrounding* district. Some of them represented large capital that is ���Seeking" new fields of investment.  They came here and went away,  and any favorable impression  they may have carried away with  them, or any merit they discovered in its resources were  largely the result of .their own  efforts. A few of these men who  are naturally observant discovered that outside of its mineral  resources the Boundary has a  climate unsurpassed, aud large  areas of fruit lands which properly subdivided and. irrigated  would provide homes for hundreds of fainilies.. The residents  of the district discuss the fruit-  irrowius: virtues of the Similka-  meen ?ud the Okanagan and  overlook the merits of their own  district. It is high time that the  people should organize for the  purpose of exploiting tke wonderfully rich and varied resources  of the Boundary. A seemingly  unshakable letharg\*has fastened  V -elf on business men and others  a:;., time when the greatest activity  should   be   shown.     The  Hoard of Trade is in a state of  hopeless inocuous disuetude. Its  president is 110 longer a resident  I of the city and its secretary is  i temporarily absent, aud no one  apparently has" the courage to attempt to revive it. Kindred organizations are evidently filled  pith the idea that Greenwood can  just grow as Topsy did.  The outlook was never brighter  than it is today. Events which  will make the Boundary one of  the greatest districts in the world  and Greenwood its center, are  crowding- fast upon each other.  All that is. needed is to arouse a  proper public spirit, to secure a  citizenship that is working first,  last and all the time for Greenwood.  The time to do the right thing1  is NOW.  CRITICISM.  The Conservative press having  tired of eulogizing* Sir William  Mulock, are now- traducing his  successor, A. B. A3-lesworth. He  is charged with having acted in  a legal capacity in connection  with the events which led up to  the Gamey investigation, and the  Hedley Gazette accuses him ,of  -having opposed the V., V. & Ev  before the railway commission a  few days before he accepted office.  At the same time the Gazette did  hot publish the fact th'atduring  the railway fight last summer A.  B. Aylesworth saved the ' situation by as masterly an argument  as was ever heard by* the railway  committee, and this with only a  few hours preparation. So far as  his opposition in reference to the  plans was concerned it may be  stated that Mr. Aylesworth's firm  were solicitor's _or the Similkameen and Keremeos railway.  That his firm filed the plans for  this railway company and was  naturally engagedto defend those  ���plans.  Unless the Conservative press  have something* stronger to urge  against the new minister than  his record as an active and brilliant' legal,practitioner, would it  not be much better to withold  criticism until he has a record as  an administrator of an important  department.  Regarding the criticism of public men President Roosevelt recently gave some sound advice  which applies with equal force  to the public men of Canada, and  -he~uhfa_r"way in-which theyare  sometimes assailed. The president said : ���  "Ss far from asking .that you  be lenient, in your judgment of  any public man, I hold that you  are recreant to duty if you are  lenient. Do not be lenient, but  be just If you dislike a man's  policy, say so. If you think he  is acting in a way so misguided  that he will bring ruin to the  state or nation,, say so; but do  not accuse him of corruption unless you know he is corrupt. If  you have good reason to believe  that he is corrupt, then refuse  under any plea>pf party expediency, under any consideration,  from refraining from smiting him  with the . sword of the Lord and  of Gideon."   -��� jj  Alleged hotels are being  erected for Lloyd A. Manley and  C. Thomas on the right of way of  way of the V. V. & E. Should  licences be granted to those places  the instructions of the attorney-  <>-eneral will be violated, the  wishes of the railway companies  disregarded, and the lives of the  workmen endangered. It remains  to be seen whether the Manley  ���grip still securely clutches the  board of license commissioners.1  and Sunshine." It describes the  Okanagan valley and its resources. This garden spot furnishes  an abundance of first-class material for the, writer and the illustrator and none of it was overlooked in the "preparation of this  interesting work. '  ��__ffmiiniiH2__aBmiimmHH_m^4  It was a drastic way of attempting to secure an advance  from the Eastern Townships  Bank at Midway.  ���/ ....  ANOTHER  SMART  TRICK  The C. P. R. Tries to Obstruct Midway and Vernon.  Further invasions of the Canadian Pacific Railway company's preserve iri Southern British Columbia by the Midway and  Vernon railway company has  turned-tke attention of the officials of Canada's national highway to its less pretentious rival.  Some time ago the work of grading the Midway and Vernon was  commenced on Myerhoff's ranch  and .continued westerly along the  Kettle river. Plans were filed  showing where the Midway and  Vernon would run east of the  Myerhoff ranch. From these  plans C. P. R. officials ascertained  that a crossing would he made  with their contemplated line west  of Midway. Immediately a ga'ng  of men were sent to Midway and  active construction and tracklay-  ing was begun from the Midway  terminus of the C. & W. westward to where the Midway and  Vernon would cross. The object  of this sudden activity in railway  building without the customary  governmental assistance was'apparent. The C." P. R. wanted to  get to the crossing first so that  the* Midway and Vernon would  have to pay for the crossing "and  its maintenance. But the C. P.  R. ran up against its own game.  The Myerhoff property was recently secured by the Midway  and Vernon, and when the C. P,  R., officials tried to get the necessary right of way they discovered  that they had to deal with the  company upon which they were  trying to play one of those smart  tricks for which the C. P. R. is  noted.  A Judicious Inquiry.  A well known traveling* man who  visits the drug- trade says- he has often  heard drug-gists inquire of customers  who asked for a cough medicine,  whether it was wanted for a child or  an adult, and if for a child they almost  i n variably, recomniend^_Ch_a_mb^lain-s  Cough Remedy. The reason for this  is that they know there is no danger  ,_i��a_it and that it always cures. There  is not the least danger in giving it,  and for coughs, colds and croup it is  unsurpassed.- For sale by all druggists  DRMATHISON  DENTIST  Out of Town Lor a few.-wee.k9.

Mr. Harvey  was also favorably impressed with the  mineral resources of the district. They  left for Vernon on Tuesday to examine  the Okanagan valley.

Andrew C Ridout died on Saturday  last at the Kearney Sanitarium for  tuberculosis in'Spokane. " A'jtdy,"  as he was familiarly called, was well  known here in 1899 as the chief sales  man for the A. H. Sperry company.  From here he went to Rossland and  was storekeeper at the LeRoi mine  under S. F. Parish. He was always  threatened with tuberculosis and had  to go south several times to ward off  the dread disease.  Mr. Ridout was 27 years of age. He  was born at Ottawa, Out., his father  being a prominent citizen of the  federal capital. He was a member of  Greenwood lodge, K. of P., which sent  instructions to Spokane lodge to look  after the funeral arrangements.

Eastern Townthips Bank at Midway  Narrowly Escapes Looting.  Midway is fast becoming a town of  importance. Last Saturday night ��a  daring attempt at bank robbery was a  further indication of the growing times  in the railway town. Shortly after  nine o'clock Mr. Moe, the manager of  the Eastern Townships Bank, returned  to the bank premises aud discovered  two men busily engaged in removing  one of the bank windows. He lost no  time in opening fire on them, which  they returned The result was a regular fusilade which lasted several  minutes. No one was injured. Mr.  Moe itnmeeiately gave thhe alarm, but  the burglars escaped in the dark.  It is supposed that they were watching Mr. Moe's movements and had intended to get into the bank before he  would return. Upon his return he  would have been forced to open the  safe. Fortunately for him and the  bank he arrived on the scene in time  to upset the calculations of the bank  robbers. This is one of the few attempts ever made to hold up a bank in  this province, and is accounted for by  the proximity of Midway to the international boundary line.  FRANCESCA DA RIMINI  The tragedy of Italian history to be  presented here soon by Harold Nelson.  It eas been in such heavy roles as  "Richelieu" and "Hamlet" that Harold Nelson the favorite Canadian  actor has scored "his greatest success.  He comes to Greenwood Monday October 30th., in the greatest tragedy ot  Italian history "Francescada RiminiV  as dramatized bv Boker from" Dante's  immortal story.  Briefly, the play deals with the marriage oi* Lanciotte, a hunchpack cripple of a noble, family, to a beautiful  young girl. Tha cripple's brother,  who is young and handsome, is constantly thrown in the compay of the  wife during Lanciotto's absence, resulting in a mutual love, which the  husband discovers and in one of the  most intense acts iu the drama ends  the  lives of the three. 7  As Lanciotto, the deformed husband,  wronged by nature, by his brother and  his wife, Mr. Nelson has a tragic role,  seldom equaled in dramatic writings.  The beautiful lines. .Hie intense situations and the tremendous climaxes are  handled with masterly art.  " As Pepe, the court jester, Cliffon.  Lane'Bruce will have an opportunity  to further the most excellent impression he "has gained by his uniformly  clever acting".  Miss Helen Scott will look and act  the part of the beautiful Francesco to  perfection.  Manager C. P. Walker, who provides  Mr. Nelson with his complete productions, has been more lavish than usual  and supplied his company with a scenic  and costume equipment thr.t surpasses  anything heretofore seen' in Western  Canada,  Mr.' Nelson's engagement here is  looked forward to with much pleasant  anticipation.
