See Hand "Bills for Prices.  MORRISON  MINE.  J. I. Feeney, an old timer in the  Boundary district,-returned here this  week after more than a year's absence  and was warmly welcomed by his  numerous friends. Mr. Feeney, as  will be remembered, formerly. held the  position of engineer at the Jewel mine,  Long lake. After leaving here at the  end of 1903 Mr. Feeney spent several  months in Portland and Seattle before  starting for Alaska. His experiences  in the north proved very interesting  He was engaged for three months at  placer mining on the bench diggings  at Takataga, several hundred miles below Nome. There were three hundred  men in the camp. Although no claims  were recorded, an unwritten law prevailed. Men worked alongside one  another on the beach, but each miner  enjoyed the reward of his individual  efforts. Storms were frequent, greatly  interfering with operations, and'varying.the average of thedaily clean-up.  The diggings were not considered rich',  most miners only being able to earn  fair wages. Mr. Feeney made the SOO.  mile trip down the coast to Juneau  with,several companions in an open  boat and experienced a good many  hardships. Frequent stops were made  but it was found impossible to prospect  successfully owing to the glaciers  which literally blocked an entrance to  the mainland. Here .and there some  fair looking quartz was discovered but  none ot the specimens ran high. Mr.  Feeney having concluded that he had  quit the best mining district in'the  world to engage in a wild-goose chase  determined to return. He now realizes  better than ever before the vast mineral wealth of this 'district and will  take his chances here. Altogether he  regards his trip as invaluable because  he ,now_feels_cot:itj-mt_tp^tey withhis  various local mining propositions.   '  It Has Been Finally Acquired ly tbe  Montreal and Boston.  The Montreal and Boston Consolidated Copper Co. has: finally acquired  the Morrison mine, the well known  Deadwood camp property. Greenwood  shareholders in the latter company  have received from F. H Oliver, manager, the following circular letter  bearing date of the 14th inst:  i'-In February, 1904, we entered into  an agreement with  Andrew Laidlaw  and through him with the Montreal &  Boston Consolidated Mining & Smelting Company . to exchange shares of  the  Morrison    Mines,    Limited,   for  shares in the Montreal & Boston company at the rate of thirty shares of  Morrison for one of Montreal & Boston  stock.   The stock  should  have been  issued to us August 18,1904-.' We were  held off with one excuse and then another until finally they refused absolutely to carry out the deal; they claiming a misrepresentation of the Morrison  mine and we claiming an absolute sale.  "I left for New York on November  27. but the deal was not consummated  until the 3rd day of January, and then  with the understanding that the stock  be pooled until the 12th day of June,  1905.   This no doubt  will   be disappointing  to  a  great  number of the  shareholders who  have waited  long  and patiently for   their   stock, but it  was either this or a law suit, and the  exchange was made, subject  to  the  pool, upon the advice of our attorney  in New York city,  Mr. Andrew Burleigh.   For us to have  brought suit  and followed  the   case  through  the  court would have taken two or three  years and  several .thousand dollars,  and, under the present financial condition of our company, this would have  been  piactically   impossible,   as   we  would have been obliged to .assess at  least two cents' per "share:'"' Wev are  satisfied that the settlement made was  to the best interest of a.11 the stockholders.     The  Montreal   &   Boston  stock that is due the Morrison stockholders is now held by the Spokane &  Eastern Trust company of Spokane,  with instructions to  them to turn the  stock over  to us on the 12th day of  June.  "In conclusion will sav tha.t we believe the Montreal & Boston company  hare Valuable assets, and their mines  and smelter, with good management,  ���will make a success of the undertaking."  ALL EYES  ON THE BAY  Rich Proposition Centre of  Public Interest.  Strong Vein Shows Tendency to Increase at Depth.  A COMING EVENT.  ^iuuaiuuuuiuiuiiiiiiiiiuiiiiiiiuuuiu-iUiUiiiuiiiUiiUiii^  CITY COUNCIL.  The city council met Monday night;  Mayor Naden presiding. Those present were Aid. Caulfield, Bunting, Mcintosh, McNeil and Parker.  On motion of Aid; Parker it was  decided to continue the monthly allowance of S15 to the public reading room.  The council guaranteed Mr. Archibald $30 for the keep the McKague  children for one month.  The board of health was instructed  to interview the Sisters' hospital respecting the maintenance of city  patients.  The following accounts were paid:  Electric Light Co., $114.25; E. G. Warren, $4;.B.C. Gazette, $2.50.  The fire and light committee was  instructed to report on cost of repairing roof of tne city hall.  Various committees submitted reports.  BONDED SMILAX GROUP.  Geo Findlay and Donald McGlashan  of this city have just acquired from A.  E. Ashcroft, C. E., a working bond on  a half interest in the Billy and Smilax  fractions, Skylark camp. The other  interest is held by I. H. Hallett. Development work is to be started next  week. The group contains very  "likely" ground and will be thoroughly prospected. It is surrounded by  such well known claims as the Skylark, Meadowlark, Mavis, (Bay, and  Silver Cloud. The Smilax group consists of 79 acres. It has already been  demonstrated that the Silver Cloud  lead runs into the Smilax claim.  Eagles Will Give Annual Ball on St-   Valentine's Day.   Greenwood Aerie, Fraternal Order  of Eagles, will give its first annual  ball in Masonic hall on St. Valetine's  day, Feb. 14th next. Great preparations are being made for the affair as  the members are determined to make  it the social event of the season. The  reception committee is composed of E.  J. Cartier, Dr. Spankie, Dr. Foster,  Jas. McCreath, Phil McDonald, R. C.  G. White and Fred B. Holmes. These  gentlemen will comprise the floor managers, namely, Thos. Hansen, Milt.  Dressor, Rock Creek; Alex Bloomfield,  Geo. Lord, Midway; Daniel Guy, Boundary Falls; C. F. Galliher, Eholt; L.  W. Bailey, Geo. Evans, Mother Lode  mine; Jas. Marshal, D. Dean, Phoenix;  J. Feeney, W. R. Madill, W. J. Simpson, Geo. Wellwood, E- W. Bishop, A.  Sater. S. Grierson, J. W. Nelson, D.  Donnelly, Andrew Ingails, G. Thompson and H. B. Madden. J. H. Ready  will act as prompter. Music will be  furnished by J. Bush's orchestra. A  large attendance of Eagles from points  in the district is expected.  Public interest is now centered on  the Bay mine, the Skylark camp proposition, whose richness seems- unquestionably to be increasing with  depth. It is little more than a year  ago since Fred K. Hall acquired an  interest and started development work.  For months he labored alone, his  steadfast faith realizing him a rich  reward. At the outset a tunnel was  run 30 feet in pay ore. From the face  an incline shaft sunk on a lead extends  to a depth of forty feet. In places the  vein is five feet between walls. In  this working a blind .and intersecting  lead containing much higher values  was encountered and it is upon1 this  new discovery that work has been concentrated for several months past.  From the floor of the tunnel a.shaft  has been sunk on the new vein to a  distance of nearly fifty feet and an upraise was made to the surface to provide better ventilation. This working  is unusually .large, being 4x9 feet.- All  the way down free gold, which are the  least part of the values, was encountered. Specimens fairly glistening  with the yellow metal are in great demand and in this way-ore valued at  hundreds of dollars has been given  away! The rich vein varies from fourteen to twenty-four inches in width.  The quartz occurs between greenstone and metamorphosed granite formations and is composed of quartz and  iron pyrites. Large values are contained in tellurides, which are plainly  visible. The ore contains fractional  values in silver. Last June '20 sacks  of ore treated at the Trail smelter  averaged $97 per ton. The last shipment of 19 tons smelted at _the local  reduction works last October gave ��� a  gross return of $1213.90 or $71.76 per  ton. H. V. Fuller, the well known  mining c.perator.-acquired a-half inter__  est. in the Bay last summer and is now  the co-owner with Mr. Hall. Three  shifts are now employed at the mine,  and forty tons onthe dump, averaging  $140 per ton,are being hauled to Greenwood for shipment to the Trail smelter.  The Bay lead is so strong and well defined that practical mining men have  been unanimous in expressing the belief that the fissure Vein will descend  to great depth and that the tendency  of the ore will be to improve as depth  is attained.

"In my opinion Chamberlain's Cough  Remedy is the best made for colds,"  says Mrs. Cora Walker, of Porterville,  California. There is no doubt about its  being the best. No other will cure a  cold so quickly. No other is so sure a  preventative of pneumonia. No other  is so pleasant and safe to take. These  are good reasons why it should be preferred to any other. The fact is that  few people are satisfied with any other  after having once used this remedy.  For sale by all druggists.

However,  it is the  intention   of. the  association   to  remain ih a highly effective state  of  organization and  to  exercise  every possible  influence  for  redress- by  a  campaign with individual  members  of  the  legislature.    Unfortunately the two'per  cent, tax does not come  within  the scope of  the commission.recently   engag*ed   in   taking  evidence respecting the  Assessment  Act.     The Nelson branch of the  association is justly  in-  that     the    commission  should have  allowed * silver-lead  mining operators  to  give expert  evidence in favor of the tax;' thus  creating an erroneous impression  throughout   the   country..   The  Nelson branch of the association  has adopted a resolution suggesting a reined}"- aiid asking permission  to  lay its  views before'the  commission.    J. J.   Campbell/ of  the Hall Mines  smelter,   hit  the  nail on the head when he  declared that the tax bears inequitably  upon mines  working  under  certain conditions  and with special  hardship upon miues working on  a  small margin of profit,  unlike  the silver-lead propositions which  are   aided   by   the    government  bounty.. Mr. Campbell was instrumental in securing the passage of  a resolution  recommending that  the tax be  modified   in   such   a  manner   that the  actual  wages  paid as shown by the payroll, as,  well as the  cost  of  freight and  treatment   sliould    be    deducted  from the gross value, aud   agreeing to au increase in the percentage of the tax if the alternative  plan   fails   to   provide sufficient  revenue.    In the  face   of   these  representations,   which    embody  the   views of the  people" of the  Boundary  district,   the   government will indeed be hastening its  doom if it contiunes to  disregard  the imperative needs of the mining industry.  bears.7 high testimony to the  Value.Xand effectiveness of the  energetic and highly; organized  work of the European agents of  the, Dominion government. It is  pointed out that the southern  states form a region where the  need of immigration of the right  sort is vital and pressing and  where 'the ^natural -inducements  ���for imnlignints are unsurpassed.  Farther ou Mr. Sargent characterizes ;the Canadian policy as  "active' , and aggressive," and  suggests its adoption, in order to  create a new South freed of the  moral heritage of slavery days.  If the United States succeeds in  its task- of improving its immigration work the result will be  due to-the example set by progressive Canada.  Pbk Yeak    2 00  Six Months _  1 2S  To Foreign Countries _ 2 SO  FRIDAY JANUARY 27 WOS  The McBride government- has  been guilty of many derelictions  of duty that have long since  alienated every claim for public  support. One of its most flagrant  oversights is the studious manner  in which the interests of the mining industry are being ignored.  A storm of protest from all parts  of tbe province against the iniquitous two per cent mineral tax  is gaining momentum daily and  threatens the very existence of  the government. Realizing the  utter hopelessness of securing  their rights from the executive  an effort will be made to conduct  a campaign of education among  the members of the legislature.  John Keen,' president of the Provincial Mining Association, has  recently described the situation  very graphically. Asked if he  intended to' call a convention of  the''association.this year to again  set forth the, inimical conditions  from "which the mining industry  of British Columbia is suffering  by reason of injudicious and ill-  WATCHES  C LOCKS  JEWELRY  Watch Repairing a Specialty  t_��r*Remember a guarantee  is given with all our work.  JEWELLERS  GREENWOOD.  A high tribute to the superior  ty of the immigration'policy of  the Dominion, government is con-i  tained.in the annual report of the  Immigration Commissioners ' of  the United States. : At the. outset Mr. Sargent shows that a  very large undesirable class of  immigrants seeks the United  States, not less than 8,000 having  been sent back last year. Commenting on the situation he  writes :  "It.is interesting, and it ought to be  instructive, to compare the character  and motives of the agents who are  thus actively promoting emigration to  the United States, with a special class  of agents in Europe who are inducing  people there to emigrate t_ Canada.  The steamship agents who are promoting emigration to our ports are working for commissions and profits solely,  without the slightest reference to our  immigration laws and po'icy, save in  so far asthey constitute obstacles to be  cheated and evaded. Canadian emigration agents abroad on 'the other  hand, are government agents, working  to secure desirable settlers for their  coun*ry They are stationed in countries where such -'settlers are most  likely to be found. Their object is to  recruit Canada's population from the  best sources, and to turn to the Dominion's ports df entry a class of  thrifty and enterprising men who will  go into the new regions and develop  them. In a word, they are workirg for  the good of the country, and they are  meeting with success."  It will be seen that this official  The threatened storm iu Russia  has burst and the streets of the  capital have been drenched with  innocent blood.- Just what the  end.will.be nobody can foresee.  It is, however, reasonable to suppose that good will result. Every  liberal- and progressive mind  must sympathize with the cause  of reform. If a revolution should  succeed iu Russia ' in the near  future the effects upon Russia  and. upon the surrounding countries of Europe and Asia would  be far-reaching. History repeats  itself. After the French revolution with its excesses, the autocratic rule of Napoleon, then a  re-action followed b3"- the working of'the leaven, which moulded  ���political ideas anew and broadened the pathway tb liberty. The  overthrow of the autocracy in  Russia ��� would probably bring  many evil consequences in its  train. Unfortunately tbe mass  of the population are benighted  and ignorant, living in a state  analagous to the condition of  other-nations two hundred years  ago." Peoples like individuals  are .subject, to a law. of orderly  growth, and the element of time  cannot be jumped without the  dangerof inviting a second Reign  of Terror. All depends upon the  spirit of the new leaders. Russia  has evolved a host of revolutionary theorists and anarchists, who  could hardl}* be regarded as safe  nation-builders. Civil war might  ensue after the autocracy had  been overthrown. There would  be the inevitable conflict between  the extremists and moderates. If  the army should take the popular  sid^aihilitaryllictatbi-shipwould"  b*e a likely possibility during the  transitional stage. At all events  the feeble torch .of liber ty now  burns brighter and in the fulness  of- time the Russians will enjoy  the representative institutions of  self-government.  \  CF*  CF*  CF*  CF*  CF*  CF*  CF*  CF*  CF*  CF*  CF**  CF*  CF*  CF*  CF*  CF*  CF*  CF*  CF*  CF**  CF*  CF*  ��� ���.  ank of  Capital, all paid up; $14,000,000.

Unless  you want to go into it extensively it  , need take but very, little of your lime.  Government reports show that the  demand for chickens in Canada is  greatiy in excess of the supply and  'Great Britain is always clamoring  for more. That means a steady  market and good prices for chickens.  You cannot raise chickens successfully with a setting hen. She is wasting time setting when she should be  laying. While she is hatching and  brooding a few chickens she could be  laying five or six dozen eggs. The  percentage pf.chickens she hatches is  'much less than that produced by the  Chatham Incubator.  It will pay you to own a Chatham  Incubator.  Chatham Incubators contain every  improvement-of importance in Incubator construction that has been produced. They are made of thoroughly  seasoned wood, with two walls, case  within case. Between these walls  mineral'Wbol is packed forming the  'very best insulation. Each piece of  the case is mortised and grooved and  screwed, making the .whole as solid  as a rock. Chatham Incubators are  equipped with" scientifically perfect  regulators' ,which are ah infallible  means of regulating the temperature.

The Skylark mine will employ 20  men "after February 1st., The last carload shipment of third class ore, treated .at.the Granby smelter, averaged  $32.80 per ton. .  "Work has been, completed on the 100  foot winze-from-the 300 to the 400 foot  level of the Old Ironsides mine, but  owing to shortage of power no further  work is beingdone there at present.  The metallic output of the Granby  smelter last. year is estimated at  $3,421,784 made up as follows: Gold,  50,694 ounces, $1,013,880; silver, 217,472  ounces, $128,949; copper, 17,843,399 lbs.  $2,283,955    Repairs to the Rawhide tram are  nearly completed.

Twelve men are  employed in three different working1..  A four foot ledge that is being drifted  on is giving-surprisingly high values.  In point of tonnage the Last Chance is  the largest shipper in the high grade  belt.      ,   The Bay mine is shipping to the  Trail smelter. There are 40 tons in  the ore house. As the ore contains  much' free gold a great demand for  specimens exists. So many high grade  specimens were being looted from the  car now loading in the yards that  orders were given to keep the door  locked. '  Pat Dermody, the superintendent of  the Providence mine, is being warmly  congratulated over tbe recent increase  in the ore reserves as a result of development work carried on under his  direction. The lead, it seems, was  thought to have been cut off by a dyke  in the south drifts on the 200 and 300  foot levels. A cross-cut through the  dyke resulted in the. discovery of the  vein larger and richer than ever on the  other side of the dyke.  In the * week ^ending, the seventeenth  inst., 24,166- shares"'-.of -*Granby stock  were sold ou the Boston market. It is  announced that .the ^company earned  a profit of $S5,0pQ iu.Deceniber.  A conservative estimate of the ore in  sight in the Elkhorn and Providence  mines, the pioneer ��� high''gra'de-producers, gives them each a tonnage  valued at $100,000, and $150,000, respectively. ,.
