FURNISHINGS  DRY GOODS  TWO MINES OFMERIT  Tho   Elkhorn  Jand   Prince  Henry Reviewed.  NEW   ORE    DISCOVERED  Native Silver and Gray Copper Found.  The Preston and Cresent Botb  Looking Well.  At the Elkhorn mine the vein has  been located on the hanging wall,  pitching to the southeast, where it is  thrown by a slight faulting or displacement similar to all the high-grade  veins of the Greenwood camp. These  faults or displacements go to the 300-  foot level, and after that, the veins  have always been found in place.  Six men are working night and day  shifts sinking the shaft to the 300 foot  level/when the crosscut will de run to  the vein.  New bodies of ore have' been discovered on the 145-foot level and also  in the shaft, where the ore is yery  rich,showing native silver and gray  copper and samples assaying ($170 and  $200 per ton.  The vein is from 8 to 17 inches wide  and the ore is very clean. Levels will  be run north and south on the shaft  ore and shipments resumed. The  management says that the Elkhorn  never looked better, as to its fnture.  All difficulties have been-overcome and  the plan now is to sink to good depth  and open up levels at each 80 feet below the 145-foot level and start stoping  in the near future. -���������..-���  THE  PRINCE  HBNRY.  The work of pumpit g the water out  of the Prince Henry was finished this  w( ek, and the mine is now in first class  condition.  There is a drift run at the 112--foot  level of the shaft for 150 feet, all in  ore of high grade quality, carrying  fair in gold and high in silver. Native  silver is encountered all through the  ore. The shaft will be sunk to the 200-  foot level and drifts run on the vein.  This will give a large area for stoping  ground.      ���      -  The vein is a fissure in the grano-  diorite formation and varies from six  inches to two feet in width. The ore  is very clean and massive. The vein  is���free���from���the���walls���and-���easily  mined. The rock breaks easily. It is  expected that the shaft will average  one and a half to two feet per day in  sinking. The shaft is now down 130  feet. A twenty-horsepower electric  1 oist has been ordered from the Greenwood Electric company through E. G.  Warren, and when this arrives shipments will probably commence.  It will be remembered that several  tons of ore were shipped as a test some  time ago and this proved quite satisfactory.  If the present excellent prospects  continue the Prince Henry will soon  be on a par with the Providence, Elkhorn and Skylark mines, and with another high grade producing mine added  to the Greenwood list the effect upon  the district generally will be good.  OTHKR   MINKS.  Preparations are under way for the  working of the Ii PU by the new  bondholders. A 400-foot cross tunnel  will be run from the Gold Finch. This  will obviate the need of a long tramway and furnish an immense amount  of stoping ground.  A new crnsher has been installed by  the Granby company,*replacingthe one  destroyed by fire last December. This  will greatly facilitate the werk at their  mines.   A new shaft house and ore bins have  been erected at the Skylark, and the  shaft has been sunk to the 150-footlcvel.  The water a I the Helen has been  pumped out and work is progressing  rapidly.  The Preston mine is looking well,  the vein having widened out to 20 inches  of high grade ore.  Four or five cars per day are being  shipped from the Sunset mine.  MR. BROWN'S VIEWS  Member Reviews Work of  Past Session.  THE   NEW   SCHOOL  ACT  This Is Declared to be a Dismal Fail-  urd-Municipal Act Will Be  an Improvement*  A representative of The Times called  on Mr. Brown, member for Greenwood riding, to obtain his views with  reference to the work done at the re -  cent session of the legislature, and to  his'inquiries Mr. Brown said: "The  session of the legislature just closed  was by all odds the most eventful of  any that has taken place since the  present government came into power.  About 67 or 68 bills were passed, but a  large number of these were unimportant and were for the most part to  remedy inconsistencies and errors in  legislation passed during the two previous sessions.  "Amongst the important measures  passed were the Municipal Clauses Act,  the Columbia and Western Railway  Subsidy act, the amendments to the  School act, and the amendments to the  Eand act. A great deal of work and  time was expended on the Municipal  Clauses act, both in the municipal  committee and in the house itself, and  I think the act as passed ptovides better municipal legislation than British  Columbia has ever had before.  "The amendments to lhe School act  are designed to render workable"'the  act of last session and to remove defects which became apparent when the  act came into operation June 1st, 1906.  The Conservative government in the  session of 1905 claimed the School act  was good and carefully considered  legislation, and their Socialist ally,  Hawthornthwaite of Nanaimo, was  loud in its pi aises, yet at this session  an act of 67 sections was brought  down to amend the act of 128 sections.  The act promises to be a dismal failure,  as it has already demoralized the  school system of the rural portion of  the province and will not even save the  provincial treasury one half what the  minister of education said it would  when he introduced the bill in 1905."  Mr. Brown further discussed many  important acts, especially the Midway  and Vernon and the West Kootenay  Power acts, but lack of space prevents  publication this week. Further space  will be devoted to the interview next  week.  BASEBALL CLUB.  Officers Elected and Colors  Chosen���Half Holiday  Wanted.  A number of young men interested  in baseball met Tuesday night and  formed a club. Mayor Naden was  elected president, Charles Dunn, vice  president. Julius Ehrlich, secretary  treasurer, and D. A. Bannerman,  manager. A captian wasjnot chosen. It  was decided that the tean should provide themselves with suits of Maroon  color.  In discussing the practice grounds  much dissatisfaction was expressed  with those used last year.  They are considered too far from  town. It was decided to secure a more  suitable place for practice and to enclose it with a fence.  The question of a half holiday for  the summer months is again coming  to the front and the boys feel that this  summer should see it adopted. The  question of a Boundary league was not  discussed but will come up at a future  meeting.  A smoker will be given in the   Eagles  Hall on March 30 th.  At a recent meeting of the Boundary-  Medical society, uniform medical contract on the basis of $1.00 per month  was adopted and a uniform scale of  fees for the whole Boundary district  was adopted.  AT COPPER MOUNTAIN  The Apex Claim Yields Excellent Ore.  SHAFT   SUNK  150   FEET  Work on the Drift Has Started���Development of Other Claims  Depends on Apex.  F. Keffer, consulting engineer for  the B. C. Copper company, returned  early this week from an extended trip  to Keremeos and Copper mountain. In  the course of his journey Mr. Keffer  covered nearly a thousand miles, much  of it on snowshoes. He found the snow  in the higher altitudes very deep and  traveling very difficult. The trip was  taken for the purpose of inspecting the  progress of work on the company's  claims on Copper mountain and vicinity. There are seven claims controlled by the company, among them  the Apex and Night Hawk. At the  present time the operations are purely  of a prospective character and Mr.  Keffer was not in a position to inform  The Times what the claims were  likely to produce, ".nd he refused to  make any predictions not warranted  by present indications.  APEX. ORE.  The Apex shaft has been sunk 150.  feet and a drift has been .started at the  100-foot level. Ore has been encounterd  in the shaft, but as the drift has just  been started, nothing has been found  there yet. On the other claims no  work is being -done- and the future  plans of the company will be largely  influenced by the results obtained in  the Apex.  Mr. Keffer found the country a hard  one in which to carry on mining. The  elevations are very high, running to  over 7,000 feet at the Apex shaft, and,  with the deep snow, some of which remains until July, and with the lack of  railway facilities, only high grade  mines can be profitably worked. Mr.  Keffer estimates the V-, V. & E. line  to be not more than six miles from the  Apex mine where it crosses Five Mils  creek.  Speaking of railway matters, Mr.  Keffer said the people at Keremeos are  expecting the steel into their town by  June lst._ They are looking forward _  with .great expectations to the event  and look for much growth and many  improvements in the town and district. A large share of the grade between Midway and Oroville has been  completed. There is still a scarcity of  men for construction work. Mr. Keffer  took a camera with him and brought  back some interesting views of the  country.  PHOENIX NOTES.  The baseball club has organized for  the season with the following officers:  President, T. Collins: vice-president,  Gilbert McE;ichcrn; secretary, Charles  Kelley; treasurer, A. B. Hood; manager, E. P. Shea; captain, Earl Erwin,  There is some desire for the formation  of a Boundary league.  There is a scarcity of houses iu  Phoenix and anything in the nature  of a dwelling can be rented. George  Rogers is completing a cottage on Ironsides avenue.

The experience of all larger cities  has proven the alarm box system the  best yet devised and the most service1  able to the people. With boxes at  suitable and convenient places they  become a continual reminder of the  efficiency of the system and when the  occasion arises are quickly reached and  easily manipulated by the simple pulling of a lever, which automatically  rings the number in the fire hall, and  if the arrangements there are complete, the brigade can be on the way to  the fire in a few seconds. This is the  more expensive system but the most  profitable in the end. Whatever decision the council wisely arrives they  should receive the support and cooperation of the citiz-ms generally.  HIS LITTLE SPEECH.  THE FIRE BRIGADE.  With commendable foresight the  city council is taking steps to improve  the equipment of the fire brigade and  bring the service up to a standard that  will meet the needs of the city. The  brigade has been encouraged to hold  regular practice and it is probable that  the year's estimates will provide a sum  of money for that purpose. It has been  On Saturday evening a funny thing  happened in the legislative hall at Victoria. It was just before prorogation,  and the government was hurrying  through legislation in eager desire to  "flee from the wrath'to come," when  the thing happened. The third read  ing of a certain bill was moved, and  upon that motion the member for  Ymir, who had sat llirough th��-ee sessions.without opening his mouth, made  his maiden speech. It was short, consisting of two words, but it was decisive. J. A. i Macdonald, John Oliver,  Stuart Henderson, T. W. Paterson and  other opposition members, had labored  day and night to defeat a measure and  had failed, but the member for Ymir  won with but two words of three syllables in two seconds. His maiden  speech, "I object" killed the bill, and  with it a look of gratification that he  had emptied the deep cells of his brain  of the knowlege which he had stored  therein during the sessions, swept  across his immobile countenance as he  sat down. It is worthy of note that  a gale of sixty-miles-an-hour force  began at the very monent the member  for Ymir uttered his memorable speech  The chimneypots cracked, the windows shook, the waters of the harbor  splashed against the causeway, dark  storm-clouds scurried across the sky  and the wind, rudely enfolding in its  embrace the cross on the spire sf St.  James'church, dashed it in pieces to  the ground. Strong men quaked,  j women shrieked, children wept, and  and all huddled together in a paroxysm  of terror. The weird masks of ancient  Romans and Greeks that peer down on  the legislative chamber from the eyrie  of the skylight left their accustomed  place to confer with each other as to  the cause of the uproar.  "What's all this about?" asked Solon  as to he lighted his pipe and blew great  clouds of smoke from his mouth.  "*Why, didn't you hear the speech of  ed Julius Caesar, as he winked at Brutus, "he'il live in history. But what  did he say?"  Quoth Brutus: "He said, 'I object.' It  was his first effort, and out of compliment to his eloqueuce the elements  are raging outside, ships are being  wrecked on the dreadful west coast  and church snd houses tottering to  their fall."  "Why do not his constituents reward  their brave oratorical gladiator?"  growled, Nero, as he -sipped a nectar  fit for the gods.  "They're about to do so," replied the  blunt and sour Diogenes.  ."What will they give him?" asked  Socrates.  "They have bought him a Talking  Machine, and it will occupy his seat  next session. It will cost only $60,  while he costs S800."  At this there was a murmur of gratification among the masks; ajpage turned the lights off, and when morning  dawned the ancients had resumed their  customary places and looked down on  the chamber in grim and majestic  silence.

R. NADEN, MANAGER  #  S.BARRY YUILL  suggested by some* members of the  council that a lighter hose wagon be  secured to replace the present heavy  one, but this has not yet been carried  out and it is doubtful if such a course  would be wise. The present hose  wagon is a strong, serviceable apparatus which the present city team can  handle with reasonable speed. A  lighter one might be just as serviceable  at a fire but it is, doubtful if dangerous turns could be made with equal  safety.  The most important step now under  consideration is the installation of a  good fire alarm system so that residents may have some handy method of  calling the brigade. At present, day  alarms must be telephoned in or a messenger sent to the fire hall,.while at  night two of the hotels, the Imperiul  and the Windsor, and two private residences are connected direct with the  fire hall. After 10 p. m. this is the  only service available, except by messenger. To say the least, this is unsatisfactory and entirely inadequate.  It is not in times of safety that protection, is needed but it is when danger  arises oad tires break forth that the  fire brigade is wanted and wanted  quickly. It is time, therefore, that  steps were taken to provide a service  that will be a protection.  It is not known yet what system of  alarms will be installed.

In the Dalmatian, for instance, thirty  points are given for color and markings, while head, eyes and ears have  only fifteen; the bulldog, on the other  hand, has forty-five for head and ears,  while c.at and color amount tojbut five  points; the collie has twenty-five for  coat, color being unmateral, and twenty-five for head and ears,  The St Bernard has forty for head  and ears, and five each for coat and  color and tail, with fifteen for appearance. It may be set down as governing in all breeds of dogs that whatever  is the typical feature of that breed is  the feature upon which stress is laid  in the allotment of points.  MINERAL ACT.

WEST FORK NEWS  Mining   Prospects   Bright.  Rambler Shipments.  P. J. Kennedy of the West Fork  country visited Greenwood thiB week  and in conversation with The Times  gave some account of the mining operations there. With the railway building irom Miday he expects great development to take place throught the  whole district. ���  Iu most of the mines work is being'  vigorously prosecuted. In the Black  Diamond the shaft is down to the 55  foot level and the drift has laid toare a  four foot ledge ore. This runs from  550 to $135 per ton in silver and lead  Two cross ledges have been struck  running east and west averaging from  twelve to eighteen inches in width.  Drifting has started on the Washington and Idaho east and west at the  100-foot level. Eight men are at work  on day and night shifts and the work  is being rapidly pushed with good  results.  In the Duncan a high grade ledge  two feet wide has been struck in the  shaft at the 55-foot level. Prospects  for the Sally are bright. A car of  Rambler ore is now on the way to the  =-TraiHsmeLter-,-=*and-shipments.-=.will-_be.  made as often as possible.  Mr. Kennedy states there are a number cf tint* properties on Curry creek.  Mr.-Tuzo of Bonnington Falls is interested in a property there which has  four feet of concentrating ore running  S28 per ton. Messrs. Thomas King,  Hugh McKay and O. N. Anderson are  interested in another property which is  said to be running 300 to 600 ounces in  silver. They have four men on development Work. George Barrett is  another fortunate claim holder who is  located on Wallace mountain close to  the Sally. His is a fine property with  ore running S75 to SlOO per ton.  profitable operations can be carried on.  Messrs. Ehrlich, Holman and Crearer  visited the O K recently and found  ore cropping out of the ground. Assays were ta ken and the ore was found  to run one ounce in gold, proving the  value of the mine to the satisfaction  of those concerned.     *  THE  HUMMING  BIKB.  The Hutcming Bird is a partially developed mine, having made shipments  ,as stated above. An incline shaft had  been sunk 108 feet under former  operators, but this is partly filled with  ;-water and debris. At, the bottom  there is said to be an 18-inch vein and  this is believed to extend into the O  K. Ths first work will be to clean out  the shaft and make the necessary  preparations to follow the lead. Work  will start April 1st. The proposed  Kettle Valley railway, which is securing a charter to build up the North  Fork, will bring these mines into easy  communication with the town of Grand  Forks, where the ore will be treated.  In Grand Forks, B. C, at .the home  of the bride, on March 20th, William  Robert Medill of Anaconda and Miss  Minnie Russell of Grand Forks were  married by the Rev. M D. McKee.

Tan shoes do not appear to be in  particular demand for spring and summer, although it is thought by many  that when the trade opens up a call for  them will develop. Advices from  manufacturers say that shiny boots  will be worn everywhere and by all  classes of people the coming summer.  Patent shoes will always be popular.  Turns will be more popular than they  were last season but welts bid fair to  surpass them. One and two hole pumps  and Gibson ties���which are the same  as bluchers, except that the lacing  does not extend quite so low���will be  heavy sellers, Large eyelets will be  shiwn in all low shoes and the two  button Oxford will also be a good  seller.  All are agreed that it will be a distinctively Oxford season for men.  There will be��more Oxfords worn this  season than ever before. They are  commencing to move now and they  will be worn until the middle of October. In men's fine shoes dull leather  will be very popular. The extreme  narrow toe will, according to present  indications, not be popular with men  who wear high grade shoes, although  there is no reported diminuation in  the sales of extreme sharp shoes, as  the younger element like them. Dull  leather and patents for women are  both in good demand, while vies and  bright valours do not seem to be in  the running.  GROCERY  NOTES.  Move the goods through your store  fast.

"Salting" mines is now going ou at  Cobalt and as usual suckers have been  found. .A prospector svho has been recently operating there tells a story of  the "salting down" ot a claim which  "was"perpetrated^recently^in^that district. An enterprising individual se-  , cured some Cobalt silver ore from one  of working mines and mixing it iu  Portland cement, dumping it into a  crack in the rock of an apparently barren claim, and as a result sold his  claim for S5,000. When the owner put  in the first shot he blew the bottom out  of his bonanza. The first inkling he  had that something was wrong was the  finding of oats in the bottom of the  hole and through the mass of "ore."  It appear that the mineral was carried  to the claim in an oat sack, and some  oats got mixed up with it.

Progress and development are terms  closely identified with life in the West, In  a new. country people are working daily  for the upbuilding of town, city and dis-*-  trict, and for the improvement of the con.*-  ditions under which men and women are  called upon to live, Every act of daily life  that tends to bettering one's surroundings  makes directly or indirectly for the inv  provement of society generally, In all this  the local newspaper plays an important  part, Among its local readers it stimulates  an increasing interest in their home city,  keeping them posted on all local happens  ings, and becomes a welcome weekly  messenger, bearing bright and welcome  tidings, Amon^ its outside readers it  forms a valuable advertising medium  making known the merits, advantages and  prospects of the city and attracting thither  citizens who want employment, business  firms looking for locations, and capitalists  seeking investments. In the upbuilding  of a town, city or district the local paper  is an important factor,  BOUNDARY CREEK  TIMES  The Boundary Creek Times aims to do  its full and complete share in the upbuild*-  ing and improvement of Greenwood and  the Boundary district. It is not handle  capped in its work by any restraining ob*--  ligations to any party, clique or corpora*-  tion. but it is free at all times to rise up  aiid promote the best interests of the City  of Greenwood and its people, To do this  most thoroughly and satisfactorily the  Times must have the support and coopera*-  tion of the citizens of Greenwood,  Every effort is being put forth to make  the Times the class of newspaper the  people want, Increasing attention is being  continually paid to mining news, especially of that nature that will interest those  employed in the work as well as those  whose capital is invested in the properties.  With this end in view we aim to have  f|���A -SutscrifceMfl^ EverjuHome  As a result of the efforts that have already  been put forth, we believe that an increase  interest is already being taken in its news  columns, We have evidences of this from  the fact that the subscription list is already  growings the street sales are increasing  weekly and the news . dealers find more  demand for each succeeding issue, This is  a satisfactory condition of affairs that acts  in two ways, It increases the revenue of  the circulation department and it makes the  paper a first-class advertising medium for  local business men,  In handling local advertising every effort  if put forth to protect the Greenwood mer/  chant.

The eighth annnal convention of  district association No. 6, "Western  Federation of Miners, opened in Phoenix Tuesday. Over twenty delegates  were present, including President  I hillips. Nelson; John Hamill, E.  Mills, H. Bretzin, Greenwood ��� T. E.  Kelly, Moyie; Geo. Bridge-nan, G.  Cisey, J. S. Murray, R. Bullnerj Rossland ; W. Morrison, H. Reid, W, Page,  D. W.

Winslow, Camborne ; D.  M. McCauley, Mount Sicker, and M  Delaney, Kamloops.  The report of the secretary-treasurer  showed the association to be in a progressive state with an increasing  membership anr better financial condition.  In his address the president deplores  the defeat of the eighl -hour law and  calls for a strike demanding an eight-  hour day for the miners who are still  working ten and twelve hour shifts.  A walking delegate is also desired,  and some hot s'lot is aimed at the capitalists,in connection with the Steunen-  berg murder. The attention of the  delegates is also called to the need 6f a  home for aged and disabled miners.  This is a practical and charitable suggestion.  The convention is still in progress  but will probably close Saturday. Th*  election of officers will be held at tha  last session. There is talk of holding  the next convention in Rossland.  On Thursday night a mass meeting  was held at which addresses were  given, followed by a dance and supper  provided by the Phoenix union.  Ff llowing is the president's address :  To THE OFFICERS AND DELEGATES OF  Pistrict Association No. 6, W. F. M.  Fallow Workers: It is with pleasure I accept the duty which devolves  upon me of welcoming the detegstes  elected by the various unions affiliated  with this organization to represent  the mat our 8th annual convention.  Any recommendations that I will  make will be such as I am convinced  will be of benefit to those you represent  and the entire working class.  During the year there has been no  serious labor disputes and  those  that  ^Jiave; pecurred have been chiefly over  the eight hour work day for smelter  employees. I am pleased to report that  75 percent of the men employed in and  ar >und smelters in B. C. are to-day  working eight hours.  This appears to form an excuse for  ihe majority of our legislators to vote  against and defeat Davidson's Eight  Hour bill for Smelter employees and  I trust that this convention will not  ajoiirn before fixing a date when every  men working in and around a smelter  anil every miner breaking ore for such  smelters will be called out and damend  the eight hour day for the 25 per cent  now wonting ten and twelve hour  shift.  But I would especially urge you not  to relex your efforts to have an eight  hcur bill for smelters and for in and  around mines to be placed upon the  st'i' *" books of British Columbia.  H? legislative committees apuinted  in your locals and let no opportunity  pa_s to advance legislation in the interests of the working class.  Your executive held a session in  January last as per article 3, section 6,  of your constitution and bye-laws and  brought to the attention of the locals  such legislation as in their opinion  would be most beneficial to the workers  of British Columbia, such as amendments to the workman's compenation  act, special junors act, nonsuits and  refusal to enter verdicts and voters  lists.  I trust each delegate has come prepared to formulate sjtre plan by which  we can secure this much needed legislation.  Shortly after our last convention the  litigation between the Wat Eagle and  Cc uter Star vs. the Rossland  Miners'  u  -  union was settled. While it was not  all we would desire, it was the beitt  obtainable.   I am pleased to state that  ince that time No. 38 has forged ahead  and is today one of the. strongest  unions in the district.  if some of our small unions would  atnalg-amat"* it would enable them to  employ a secretary, .ir in the alterna-  i.tve, a union at large could be formed  by the district a,nd a walking delegate  employed under the supervision of the  executive board of the district, to visit  all places not covered by a��local union.  I am of the opinion that if some such  method was carried ouc it would give  us a more effective organization.  The calling of the convention should  be left in the hands of the executive,  with instructions to call it at least  once a year. I make this recommendation, believing our legislative el forts  would have more effect if a convention  was called immediately prior to the  convening of the legislative assembly.  Several of our unions possess their  halls, hospitals and libraries, but we  have no place for our old and crippled  members. I submit for your earnest  consideration that an old man's home  be established to be owned and controlled by District Association, No. 6,  W. F M, Should the delegates favor  this proposition T would suggest it be  sent to the locals for a referendum  vote and, if voted on favorably, the  incoming executive be instructed to  purchase a small tract of land in some  desirable locality. There are sufficient  members of the W. F. M. in B. C. to  raise the necessarj- funds to carry out  this project and maintain the same at  a verj' small cost per member.  I believe (hat Article II, Section 2, of  the W. F. M. constitution, should be  so amended that no number of the executive board should vote any proxy  vote unless it be from the union in  which said officer holds membership. ���  It is with deep regret and resentment  that we note the act'ons of the capitalist press ih its efforts to prejudice  public opinion against our officers,  now under arrest in Idaho' on the  charge of -"murdering ex-Governor  Steunenberg, and against the Westetn  Federation of Miners.  We cannot believe any other than  that our officers are innocent of any  complicity in such crimes, and the  whole 'ransaction appears to be nothing more nor less than persecution, a  foul conspiracy on .the part., of the  Mine Owners' association to create dis-  sennion in the W. F. M. and prejudice  the public against, our -organization,  but I venture to state that such actions  on the part of capitalists willbut unite  us stronger .th.in ever 'before and  react against the I;plotters," who  seek to destroy us. It is up to us to  stand itogether and stand by our officers, who have stood by us, Ihus incurring tha wrath of the Standard Oil  gang of pirates.  The Taft-Vale decision in England  has had its effect in arousing the people of England aod I trust the people  of this continent will render a decision  such as will control our legislature,  judiciary aud militia, that the death-  knell of capitalism will ring, when  liberty and industrial Freedon will be  established and labor reign supreme.  Your secretar3* treasurer's report  will-ifiow" "tf.iaT ~ ouF"~or gatiizatibh^ih"*  British Columbia is stronger, both  numerically and financially than ever  before in its history.  In conculusion, I wish to express my  appreciation of the untiring efforts and  interest of your financial secretary, as  well as the ever ready assistance of  the vice-presidf-nt.  Thanking the members in general  forthe courleous trcatu eut accorde:!  me throughout my term of office, and I  can assure you that I will do ail iu my  power lo assist my successor with the  duties of his office.

'Midway, March 22.���It is reported  that the grading on the V., V. & E. in  the direction of Keremeos is almost at  a standstill on account of the scarcity  of men.

H.Cameron, who has been  in charge of the work of the Presbyterian church here during the past  year, will preach his farewell sermon  next Sunday, March 25th. Mr. Cameron goes  to  Keremeos  where he will  take up work, preaching also at Fair-  view.  At the last meeting of the license  commissioners the subject of gambling  came up for discussion. Numerous  complaints had been made as to Sunday igambling, and uuder these circumstances the commissioners were  bound to interfere in the matter, Instructions were issued to the police to  see that all gambling was stopped entirely, and these orders were promptly  carried out and as  promptly observed.

The Dominion parliament, now  session, has got through the preliminaries incident to opening and has got  down to work. The address in reply  to the speech from the throne was  moved by W. E. Knowles, the newly  elected member for West Assiniboia.  With becoming modesty he disclaimed  any suggestionthathehadbeen selected  for the important duty because of his  own tnirits, preferring to accept the  honor as a recognition of the importance of the west, aud especially of the  great constituency which he had the  honocto represent. Mr. Knowles at once  proceeded to relieve the minds of his  colleagues by assuring them that,  although the speech contained many  paragraphs, he would refer to but two  or three, and would not trepass long  upon their attention.; That pledge was  implemented to the letter, and when,  after a concise and well prepared addres  of about half an hour, in which the reputation which had proceeded him was  fully sustained, Mr. Knowles resumed  his seat he was heartily cheered by the  government benches.  THR G. T.  P.  Mr. Schreiber, ' Grovernment engineer of the western division of the  Transcontinental Railway, in a report  to the Minster of Railways stated that  the Government have withheld approval of the Grand Trunk Pacific map for  the first forty-five miles e_st of Edmonton, in hope that as favorable a  line may be obtained passing through  Strathcona into Edmonton as at Clover  Hill Bar, twelve miles east, where the  company proposed to cross. A fresh  survey to determine this fact is in progress, but the company state they will  not be able to submit the results until  the end of this month. In the meantime from Edmonton to the western  end of tbe prairie section preliminary  surveys have been made, but uo route  ifflap-has"-yet"-ibeen-"_u-bmittedirf6"r^pp'rbv;*r  al. Until it has been determined which  pass through the Rocky Mountains  is to be adopted it is not possible to  show a route for this portion of the  line. From the western end of prairie  section tothe Pacific coast explorations  of the mountian passes have beeu made  but sufficient information has not yet  been obtained to enable a dicision to  be reported on so important a question  as that of the selection of a pass  through which the railway should be  built.  The regular meeting of the city  council was held Monday night with  Mayor Naden in the chair and Aldermen Burning, Mathison, McRae, Nelson, Sullivan and Wood present. Aside  from the discussion on the license bylaw little business was transacted.  The bylaw was discussed clause by  clause in committee and passed the  second reading. As it now stands the  proposed law provides for not more  than ten hotel licenses and not mo3-e  than three saloon licenses. The  original draft made it optional with  applicants and the commissioners  whether the licenses be for saloons or  hotels, so long- as not more than thirteen were granted, but the amended  bylaw expressly states that the number shall be United to ten hotels and  three saloons. The license fee is increased from $300 to $325 for hotels and  decreased from $500 to $400 for saloons.  The bylaw will come up for third reading at the   lext council meeting.  Alderm;*!)
