H��  I   RENDELL & CO. 1  ^uuiiiuuiuiuiunitiiuiijiiituiaiuiiiiiiuuiittiauiuuiuuk^  An agreement has been entered into  between the city of Greenwood and the  land owners of Anaconda by virtue of  which the former agrees to extend the  waterworks and fire protection systems  to Anaconda. The consideration is  the transfer o-f the water record of  Lind creek to- the city of Greenwood.  The agreement was ratified at a meet-  ting of Anaconda property owners  held last Friday night and has also  been endorsed' by the Greenwood city  council.  Mayor Naden leaves today for Victoria to secure the assent of the lands  and works department to the agreement and to authorize the grant of the  water record to the city. He will be  accompanied by John P. Jackson, who  will represent the Anaconda property  owners. Mr. Jackson will present  petitions in favor of the agreement and  asking the government to grade the  streets which the water pipes will be  laid.-   ���  Greenwood's part of the bargain is  as follows: Provide and lay a 4-inch  main along Second street from Everett  to Tacoma avenues; 2-inch main along  Tacoma ave from Second street, .to  Fifth; 2-incti main along Fifth from  Tacoma ave to Denver ave; 4-inch main,  on Denver ave from Fifth to Sixth  street; ,'4-inch main on Sixth street  from Denver ave to Everett ave; 2-inch  main on Butte ave from Second to  Sixth street; also install three fire  hydrants; install key hydrants for  domestic use at points along the above  pipe lines where there are at least three  applicants for same, not otherwise  served; will connect said water system  with the Greenwood system and will  allow the residents of Anaconda the  use of the said water free of charge for  the term of one year from the date the  ~\^at��~is"WrrreW^6tf~ffi  Greenwood fire brigade will respond to  all fire alarms from Anaconda which  will pay Greenwood $5 for each turnout  and other actual expenses involved in  said turnout.  That in the'event of any of the existing pipe lines in Anaconda being  available for distribution purposes,  and being found in good condition and  protected from frost, that Greenwood  will take over said pipe lines and allow  the cost of same on account of water  rates, after the period of free water  shall have elapsed; and that the rates  thereafter shall be the same as in  Greenwood, extend the proposed system lo supply future consumers and  those not directly served by the proposed work, whenever the applying  consumer.*--, shall in revenue provide for  10 per cent, and sinking fund on the  costs of the required extension; that  the cost of water from a key hydrant,  after one year, shall be 50 cents per  month to each consumer. i  American road from being the first to  provide railway facilities forthe people  of the Similkameen and lower Okanagan.  Chief Engineer Kennedy, of theV.  V. & E. R., the Canadian section of  Hill's road, and three engineers have  been busy at Midway since Tuesday  "'tieing up the loop" connecting the  Curlew-Midway section with the survey extending up Boundary creek to  the smelters and Greenwood, and beyond to its connection with the Phoenix branch of the Great "Northern on  Providence creek. It seems to be  settled that the rails will be laid this  spring on the completed roadbed between Curlew, Wash., andMidway and  that the construction of the line up  Boundary creek as far as Greenwood  will also be undertaken this summer.  Simultaneously the main, line will be  extended west towards Hedley with all  possible ' speed. Hedley, where the  Nickel Plate mine is located, is an  important objective as it will provide  a large tonnage.  The C.P.R. realizes that it must be  prepared to abandon its waiting game  and be ready to offset the Hill invasion.  This is evidenced bv the fact that  Mr.  Callaghan,   a   C.P.R.   engineer   from  Winnipeg,   has just   completed a  ten  days'   secret inspection   of   the Great  Northern's survey made last fall. This  survey was undertaken with the object  of getting a more direct, witnal a more  expensive route,  to the mouth of the  Similkameen river.    It will also render  unnecessary   the construction of a sinuous line running in and out of American,  territory.   It   is   known   as   the  Whitcomb  survey.    It  will;  however,  run in American territory from Sidley  lake to the point where the boundary  line crosses the Similkameen river,   16  miles below Keremeos.    The grade will  be iyz per cent, across Sidley or Anarchist mountain.  On his recent mission  Mr. Callaghan was accompanied by R.  G. Sidley,   of Sidley, B.C.   The   new  survey will necessitate a 700-foot tunnel at Similkameen Falls, Wash.    It is  significant   that   Capt.   Robertson',   a  Winnipeg capitalist,  who  is  close  to  Whyte, the C.P.R. general'manager of  western lines, was n. recent visitor at  Midway.    The captain's appearance in  any locality is a sign that  something  is going to happen.  The C.P.R. already has a survey  from Midway west. It runs via Kettle  river, Rock Creek, west fork of Rock  creek, swings around Sidley mountain  crosses the summit at Summit lake,  and comes out at Incamwp Indian .v.-  servation on Okanagan river, ;> lilt),  above-and opposite Fairview.. thence  heads up the SinJilkameen..

LIVE I  Terminal Freight Rate Into Boundary  Needed,  For several months past there had  been no meeting of the Greenwood  Board of Trade until Saturday last.  The secretary, who has been looking  after the interests of the board, getting desperate, made an appeal to the  members to attend a called meeting  and assist in cleaning up a lot1, of  important matters. It was a matter"of  general surprise to find so large and  enthusiastic a gathering. Three hours  of faithful work were necessary to  clear the docket.  It was decided to hold meetings at  least monthly hereafter. The next  meeting will be the annual to be held  on Wednesday, April 5th, at which  officers will be elected for the ensuing  year, accounts audited and membership roll revised.  At last Saturday's meeting the questions of the 2 per cent, trineral tax, of  a bounty on copper, of a telephone line  from Fairview to Midway, of a terminal freight rate into the Boundary-  were all discussed. In rega rd to Ihu  two percent, ir-.irj'--  ed to request the  empt the I. iiVe \. i  A RAILWAY RACE.  Great Northern and C.P.R. About to  Invade the Similkameen.  The railway situation has been  greatly clarified during the past week.  It now seems to be settled that the  Great Northern will resume railway  construction in the Boundary as well  as make a start west from Midway on  its extension to the Similkameen with  the coast as the ultimate objective.  The C.P.R , too, is not idle. The big  corporation has its engineer-? in the  field "keeping cases" on its rival. It  may be fairly assumed that the first  step made by the Great Northern towards building west will be the signal  for the C.P.R. to rush construction  west from Midway with the object of  heading- off its rival and preventing an  THAT MUNR0E FAILURE*  To The Editor--?  Having closely followed the proceedings given such widespread notoriety  through the press, regarding the affairs  of Munros & Munroe and in justice to  all concerned, I wish to state my views.  . The difficulties in which this firm became involved were brought about by  extraordinary conditions of both the  stock market and the price of copper  and as a result, Munroe & Munroe  were reluctantly forced tc ask for a  few days extension of time to make  good their contracts, assuring all creditors that each and every one of them  would receive one hundred cents on the  dollar. At this meeting some of the  creditors would listen to no reasoning,  demanded-.ash'andth&tpromptly'paid.-  Wh.it followed the public have been  pretty thoroughly posted in through  the press. A few vindictive brokers  rushed the matter into court, demanded bankruptcy proceedings and the  appointment of a receiver and practically tied the hands of the Munroe  brothers behind their backs,, cast them  into a sea of trouble and asked them to  swim out. .  It is greatly to the credit of Munroe  & Munroe, that I hey fought these proceedings to the bitter end, and came  out with much honor arid prestige, in  the shortest time known in.the history  of Wall street. They made good all  contracts and settled with their creditors at one hundred cents on the dollar, (this was just what they proposed  to do on the day of their suspension,  possibly in a more advantageous way  to themselves, than they had offered  their creditors on that day), and have  now resumed business, in the same  suite of offices with a clean slate, having gained an experience wnich cannot  but benefit and proved who their  friends really are. The court has instructed the receiver to give Munroe &  Munroe all money and securities turned over to him.  The ability shown by Munroe &  Munroe have been productive of much  envy and it was largely due to what  followed in this affair. How dare  these young Canadians come from  Montreal and open-an office on Wall  street in New York! "But they did���  and furthermore proved themselves  thoroughbreds in every sense of the  word and not "squealers" as others  have been.  Let us all in justice place credit  where credit belongs.

Several other matters were discussed,  some being district, some being provincial, and some of a Federal aspect.

IOCS  government although, it presents  greater engineering difficulties  than those encountered on. the old  survey which provides for a line  with frequent crossings of the  international boundary line between Midway and the month of  the Similkameen river. The  marsh ailing- of the Great Northern engineering" force at Midway  this week, Chief Engineer Kennedy's hurried trip to St. Paul  and the wintering of the railway  contractors' horses at Sidley  mountain all possess deep significance. Of equal import is the  recent visit of a C.P.R. engineer  to the Okanagan and Similkameen. Mr. Callaghan, the gentlemen referred to, must have  been acting under instructions  from headquarters when he occupied ten days in traversing the  Great Northern survey. The C.  P. R. engineer has no doubt reported that the Great Northern  people mean business. It would  be a great blow, to C.P.R. prestige to permit a foreign and uu-  subsidized railway like the Great  Northern to be the first company  to extend its line into the .Similkameen district. This the C.P.R.  will probably have the good sense  to avoid and for a variety of reasons. From its present terminals  and connections at Midway and  Pentieton the C.P.R. is doing a  very large and profitable business with the district, farther  west. This summer's race between the big corporations with.  Hedley as the first objective, will  be watched with keen, interest for  it means better times, the influx  of many people and a revival of  interest in mining in the Similkameen. district.  All indications now point to  unprecedented activity in railway  construction this summer in  southern British Columbia. The  C.P.R. and Great Northern have  virtually prepared their plans for  an ex+ension of their respective  lines west of Midwa}7 The  policy of the former company has  hitherto been a waiting one, but  circumstances will compel it to  start work in order to offset the  vigorous policy of its aggressive  competitor. It has just transpired that the new survey made by  Great Northern engineers last  winter was undertaken with the  object of securing a line which  would render unnecessary frequent detours into American territory. The adoption of this  route  may  placate  the McBride  Dr. Osier, formerly of John  Hopkin's university, has started  a lively controversy in the press  over his whimsical remark that  all men should be chloroformed  ���iiisa six.y*----Sis.is^o.r^pt critics  apparently could no*fr*see the point  of his joke. Dr. Osier, who was'  recently appointed regius professor of Medicine at Oxford university, is much too careful a scientist to seriously pretend that age'  is the true measure of existence.  The standard is arbitrary and,  to group men according to the  number of years they have .been  in the world is no more scientific  than to group them according to  4h eir=*wei gh t--Gr���th eir-hei gh t ,-or-  to reckon the world's progress by  centuries. Doctors themselves  discovered this long ago, ,and set  up the arterial standard. "A  man is as old as his arteries,"  they said. In our everj-xlay wisdom we have the proverb, *'A  man is as old as he feels, a woman as old as she looks." We  hear much about "young old  men," and "old young men,"  paradoxes well understood. Dr.  Osier is aware of this, and also of  the famous poetical passage  which tells us that life is not  measured by years, but by deeds,  and thoughts, and aspirations.  This is -spund science and good  poetry. Because Dr. Osier sticks  to the years standard, we know  that he does not seriously mean  just what his words imply.  Local mining men assert that  the industry will be throttled if  the powder monopoly continues  to advance prices. Their protest  is timely. It is likely to take  some effective shape as the project of establishing a powder factory near Greenwood is being  strongly endorsed. To our knowledge ten mining men interested  in this camp have agreed to take  stock in the proposed enterprise.  Relief they are determined to  have as the industry cannot stand  the arbitrary prices dictated by  the Canadian trust. We are informed that three grades of now-  der are now selling at an advance  of twenty per cent, over the  prices that prevailed a year ago.  The last few days have witnessed  a further advance,- and likewise  caps have also ,beeu marked up  from 90 cents to $1.25 per-box,  The last order for powder placed  by . a local high grade mine was  at the rate of 24 cents per pound.  The mining industry has had  enough obstacles in the way of  legislative burden's to face during  the past few years without running the risk of being strangled  b}r a trust, whose powers can  soon be nullified if mining men  only agree upon a policy of reprisals.   A meeting to be held in Eagles'  hall Monday will further consider  the proposition of providing the  city with a public ambulance. A  start has already been made and  the funds now available, we  understand, exceed SlOO. The  idea is a g*ood one. It has for its  object the providing of facilities,  which "will alleviate the sufferings of the sick or maimed in  transit to their homes or the hospital. The matter is one that  does not concern any particluar  creed or sect. Under the circumstances and in view of the frequency of accidents in the local  smelters and adjacent mining  camps there should be a large  attendance at Monday night's  meeting and a generous response  on the part of our citizens.and  especially on ��� those most vitally  interested,- the miners and smel-  terrueu. However, the proposition is equally deserving of the  support of the mining companies  and business men generally.  At long range it looks as  though the resignation of Hon.  Mr. Sifton would result iu giving  British Columbia increased representation in the cabinet.  The   Board   of  Trade is   not'  dead.    It sleepeth.    POWDER  BILL*  At a public meeting held at the  Windsor Thursday afternoon, W. M.  Law presiding, a strong resolution  protesting against the passage of a  bill introduced in the local house by  Mr. Tanner and relating to the regulation, manufacture, inspection and  storage of explosives, was adopted.  The resolution will be wired J. R.  Brown, M.P.P., asking him to oppose  the measure. H. C. Dickinson, of the  Giant Powder  Co.,   explained the pro  visions of the bill. He~saidTFprov_<ied~  for the erection of expensive magazines, under government supervision,  by the powder companies and mining  companies. In regard to his own company the extra expense involved-would  be over 530,000. If the bill,became law  it would-prove a hardship to small  mines which would be compelled to  buy direct from the mills at an . extra  cost ot 3 or 4 cents per pound. An objectionable feature was the annual  licence of $100 for each magazine. F.  Keffer, general manager of the B.C.  Copper Co , severely criticized the  provisions of the bill. He said he had  wired Mr. Brown, M.P.P., to oppose il;  and he understood Mr. Hodges, of the  Granby, had also wired a strong protest Mr. Keffer objected to the clauses  respecting the location of and fireproof character of magazines, and the  use of lightning conductors; likewise  against the' provision about storage  limit, etc. The resolution as above  outlined was then adopted on motion  of W. G. Gaunce, seconded by J. J.  Caulfield. It recited the fact that the  proposed' bill, if passed, would, be  inimical to the mining industry.  Later���The bill has been withdrawn.

A bill to amend .the unrepealed, provisions of the assessment act, introduced by a special message from the  lieutenant governor, elicited a.vigorous  protest from,the leader of .the oppos i_-  tion. The bill proposes to subject  mining companies,to special regulations in regard to assesments. and  Macdonald contended it was unfair to*  impose upon mining industries conditions, not enforced, as against .other  property or income, interests. The  mining industry had been-subjected to  enough- bad legislation he tliought,  without the government bringing down  a. measure of this, kind, which was  merely a-case .of- class legislation,'the  proposed regulations not being enforced , against personal property, incomes.   The bill read as follows-.  The.unrepealed provisions'of the Assessment Act, being chapter 179 of the  revised statutes.' 189., are, hereby^amended-by inserting, after section,, 16  thereof, the following.sections:.  "16a���At any time after making an  assessment or,,accepting, taxes,, b^sed  upon,, a return , or returns, furnished  pursuant to section. 14 thereof-, should  an assessor ascertain that said-return  m  ' ��� ell ....  is, or said returns are, misleading,, incorrect, orrdid;.not, furnish, sufficieat  information upon which* to - arrive at  the correct amount, at which, the* output of the mine ia.question,should  have, been, assessed, for,, the,, period  covered by said return oc returns, the  assessor may, from such* information  as he may be able to obtain, notify,the ���  manager or, other person to whom,notice may be addressed of the additional  amount payable'in respect of- the'output of such mine for said period? and  require payment, thereof, and,such*,notice shall state the date of a special  meeting of* the court of revision; and  appeal to be.held not less than 14 days  after the date of said notice.  ��� -16b���Any.,, person _who_is_ dissaiis-   fied with the amount claimed by an  assessor, acting under section" 16a,  may appeal to said court of revision  and appeal against said assessment  and he shall be entitled to have his  objection heard "by such court.

It is understood  that   a  new boiler  will be installed   at   the   Providence,  mine shortly.  Frank McFarlane, a well 'known  pioneer of the Boundary district; has  gone to Tonapah, Nev. ���'���        ;f  Last week saw a new record estab-  lished-by Boundary smelters, the total  amount of ore treated reaching 20,274  tons;, ______      '.'���  Hardy brothers, of Grand Forks,  have concluded a contract for lime  with the Granby smelter company. It  calls'for delivery w'ithin niriety days,  Fifty-men are at work 'enlarging the  plant of the Weat Kootenay Power &  Light Co., at Bonnington Falls on  Kootenay river, the supplementary  power to be distributed in the company's territory.  Ore shipments this week were as  follows: E.P.U., 45 tons; Skylark, 60  tons. There are large accumulations  of ore at the Last Chance and Bay  mines'which"can'not:'be "shipped until  the roads' improve.;  The Lake Mining Co. will expend  $750 per month as a starter in the  development of its: group in Skylark  camp.  Diamond drilling- still continues on  the Monarch for the Granby Co., and  in a short time development, in the  way of stripping, will be started.  J. N. C. Jenckes, of the Jenckes Machine C07 Sherbrooke, Que., visited  the Boundary this "week. He was here  Wednesday, accompanied by R. P.  Williams, B.C. agent of the company.  Mr. Jenckes inspected the smelters and  big mines.  The recent strike on the Sally mine,  West Fork, has proved to be remarkable. The carload of ore shipped from  Midway yesterday- to the Trail smelter  sampled $250 per ton. Another car  load will be shipped next week. The  output is 2]/2 tons per day, the vein  being 30 inches wide.  A rich' strike of grey copper is reported from -.the Athelstan fraction,  ��� Wellington "camp. Ttie>haft has attained'a depth*, of 35-feet. ' .The property, is owned' by. P:" B. Nelson, John  Buckley and" Forbes M. Kerby. t  ��� 'A7s'niair hoist was installed at the  sikylark last week, for the purpose of  continuine , the sinking -of the .shaft.  A night force of eight meu was added  to the crew at the property on Saturday. ' Some exceptionally rich ore was  encountered' this week; in the regular  course of stoping.  Work was discontinued last week at  the Senator mine in Summit camp,  and the last car of ore shipped to the  Granby smelter. The property was  under lease and bond to the Granby  company and has been worked for several months, some 3000 tons of ore useful as a flux having been shipped from  A 25 h.p. boiler and a Snow pump  are being installed at the Bay mine.  It is intended to begin the work of  sinking forthwith. Since drifting ana  stoping wer.e started, from the 40-foot  level about 70 tons of ore have been  extracted. - The ore house is filled, the  first grade quality exceeding 35 tons-  Piled outside are 25 tons of second  grade ore. The Bay will"be unable to  ship until a wagon road is built. So  far all efforts to- secure aid from the  provincial government.have failed.  worthy of. Two or three cars of material have been taken to the mine last  week, andthiee shifts will be employ-  ed'in taking but the water.  AMBULANCE FUND*  A meeting was held at Mayor Naden's  office Friday nigl-t, March 3rd, to consider ways and means for providing a  public ambulance on behalf of the city  and surrounding camps. After discussion it was decided to call a' public  meeting for Monday, March 13th at 8  p.m. in Eagle's hall. Everybody is  cordially invited to attend. Steps will  likely betaken to appoint a committee  with authority to canvass for subscriptions throughout the district. The  proposition is one well worthy of public support. Randolph Stuart, the acting secretary, has written the Vancouver City hospital enquiring for data  respecting- the cost of an ambulance,  etc.  the glory<' h<^e of the property. ,-Th'e  ore,h'aying give'n'put, practically,^work  was stopped   and" foreman  Rogers is ' and,: some"  good'oi-cHas been'sent out.  The Minnehaha Copper Mining company, operating near Danville, Wash.,  has concluded to develop .that property  on a large plan. Plans are now being  made to extend- the big tunnel from  the foot of the hill to cut the Minnehaha vein at depth. The total length of  the tunnel will be about 1000 feet, and  will be. the longest tunnel in that .ec-  tion of the country. The tunnel has  been started and is now ih a'distanc'e  of about 2S0 feet. When completed the  big- hole will open up most.of the veins  on Minnehaha hill, and will be of  inestimable value to the camp. The  company .has been steadily developing-  the properties.for the'past three years','  A Chicago Alderman Owes His Election to Chairnberlain's Cough  Remedy.  "I can heartily and conscientiously  recommend Chamberlain's Cough Remedy for affections of the throat and  lungs," says Hon. John Skenick, 220  So. Peoria St., Chicago. "Two years  ago during a political campaign, I  caught cold after being overheated,  which irritated my throat and I was  finally compelled to stop, as I could not  speak aloud. In my extremity a friend  advised me to use Chamberlain's Cough  Remedy. I took two doses that afternoon and could not believe my senses  when I found the next morning the in  flammation had largely subsided. I  took several doses that day, kept right  on talking through the campaign, and  I thank this medicine that I won my  seat in the council." This remedy is  for sale by all druggists.

A.  tunnel being driven to intersect the  main ore zone at depth has already  been extended 150 feet and has'cross-  ciit an ore shoot fi fteen feet in thickness.

In his opinion all the camp  needed was a little' mor. publicity in  American investing centres in order to  divert here much of the capital that is  now being.invested in Mexico, Arizona'  and Nevada. Mr. Wells, accompanied  by Mr. Miller, visited Phoenix and  were shown through the Granby mines  by Mr. Hodges, , the general superintendent.
