 Vol. 10.  GREENWOOD, B. C. FRIDAY   JANUARY 5, WO^.Q .  No. 18  The  Big  Store  .'��  During the last twojveeks of January we  are going to take stock and in the meantime  we would like to get rid of as much of our  winter goods as possible.   We are offering  the public some especially attractive prices.  Here are a few of them :  Ladies' Coats, regular price $9.00  Selling for $5.00  Eiderdown Dressing Jackets, regular $7.50  ~~                                             Now $6.00  Warm Kimonos, regular $3.00 and $3.50  Now $2.50  ;    ��� ���     ���  ZL Liberal Discount on  tt   HERE ISPRIDE IN A WATCH WHEN  IT  KEEPS  THE  CORRECT  TIME  ABSOLUTELY  GUARANTEED  We have a complete  line of this famous make  in prices to Fit Yoiir  Pocket.

Von Berg's method of separating  and determining zi.nc in ores, line dust,  etc., is as follows: The ore is dissolvbd  in hynrochloric and nitric acids, evaporated with.sulphuric acid, and dilute  sulphuric acid added, filtered, and  washed with the same acid; to the filtrate ammonia is added almost to a  neutral point, then ammonium carbonate until a permanent precipitate is  obtained; this precipitate is dissolved  in sulphuric acid, ammonium chlorace-  tate and chloracetic acid are now  added, the zinc precipitated by hydrogen sulphide and filtered, the w. shed  sulphide is dissolved In hydrochloric  acid and bromine, the zinc being* precipitated with sodium carbonate, and  weighed as the 'oxide. If iron, manganese or copper should be precipitat-  .ed,=they_ar.e^determi_____n^uW_acJed=  from the weifhed oxide.      *;  The Dannernora iron mines of Sweden have been in continuous operation  for over 300 years. They produce the  finest iron ore known, the ore consisting of 86 to 90 per cent, magnetic  oxide of iron and 7 to 12 per cent, sili  ca with traces of manganese, lime,  magnesia and alumina, the earthy matters being in proper proportion to form  a fusible slag without further addition,  lt is practically free of sulphur ancl  phosphorus. The mines extend under  a lake and much damage has been  caused by the water breaking through.  Over 2,000,000 tons of high grade ore  have been taken from these mines.  Warning to the Public.  When coming to Greenwood, if you  do not wish to get first-class treatment  and the best value for your money,  don't stop at the National Hotel, where  the rooms are well furnished, . clean  and large, furnace heated,dining room  and bar all aline. Now under new  management.   TaMBi/v."- & Cusick, ���  Proprietors.  Cash or Cure  If Shiloh's Consumption Cure fails to cure  . your Cold or Cough, you get back all you  paid for it.

IS NOW EIGHT HOURS  Difficulty Between Men and  Managers Settled  BY MUTUAL CONCESSIONS  The Eight Hour Day Is Now in Force  at Both Smelters.  Both the Greenwood and Boundary  Falls smelters have been closed since  January 1. It was arranged some time  ago that the eight hour day should be  introduced at both smelters oh that  date. The wage scales posted by the  managers of the companies did not  suit the men and they did not go to  work. Since then there have been  several conferences between Messrs.  McAllister and Keffer, representing  the B. C. Copper Company, Messrs.  Drummond and Thomas, representing  the Dominion Copper Company, and a  committee representing the Western  Federation of Miners. These negotiations were carried on in the most  friendly way, but unfortunately no  final decision has been arrived at at  the time of * writing^ The difficult  points to adjust are those connected  the industry where there are differences between the plants at'the local  smelters and those of smelters where  the eight-hour day has been introduced  without friction.. The greatest difference is in connection with the sampling works. It is understood the men  want the old wage scale for eight hours  work. The management holds that it  is a physical impossibility to do the  work required in that time, and that  they can not afford to put on an extra  shift. They are quite willing to concede to the demands of the men as  soon as such improvements are made  as will make the change possible without additional heavy expense.  As a prolonged dispute would involve the mines shipping to the smelters and would result in business stagnation, there is the greatest anxiety  felt and the strong hope expressed that  the-difficulties can be satisfactorily adjusted at an early date.  This is practically the first serious  labor trouble in the Boundary. The  working men are not unreasonable,  they are officered by men of sound  judgment, and as the companies are extremely anxious not to disturb the c'or-  dial-rclations-whichheretof ore-existed,  the outlook for an early settlement  is therefore very bright.  Yesterday evening, after a prolonged  consultation with the men, the managers of the smelters conceded the  eight-hour shift. There were of  course slight concessions made by the  men before this settlement was arrived  at. Both smeltees wereagain started  this morning.  This, it is to be hoped, settles for all  time the hours of labor in the smelters  of the Boundary., It will also do away  with the necessity for legislative.enactment on thr eight-hour question.  Both managers and men are to be congratulated upon lhe sensible manner  in which the difficulty was settled.  Particulars of the agreement are not  to hand, but as there was a large attendance of members of the union, and  the terms were fully discussed, the  agreement will no doubt prove a permanent one.  AN AWFUL ACCIDENT  George Alexiene Gets His Foot Caught  in Stirrup���Dragged for 18 Hours  FairviKw, Dec. 2_.���An awful accident occurred at lucameep, an Indian  settlement near here, on Christmas  eve. The particulars are as follows:  Alexiene, a middle-aged man, left his  home on Sunday at 9 in the morning  and started for Incameep, distant  about eight miles. He arrived at a  friend's house about noon and ate dinner. At 1 o'clock he got on his horse  and started down the road, presumably  to visit other friends. This was the  last seen of the man alive At the investigation it was learned that his saddle turned and his foot became fastened in the stirrup. The horse started  for home, dragging the unfortunate  man over a romrh country. Nobody  saw the accident, but from traces of  blood in the snow, which scarcely covers the ground, it appears that the  horse, after following the road for  three miles, took to the mountains and  wandered aiound all night, dragging-  the victim. A papoose, on Christmas  norn, while going to church, about 10  o'clock saw the animal running along  a fence, shying and kicking. He followed the horse and on catching7up .'  saw the body of a'man horribly, mutilated. He hurriedly went to a ranch _,  near by and got help. They cornered'  the horse and cut the cinch loose.  The unfortnnate was so badly broken1 *  up that he was scarcely recognizable: *  His clothes were torn from' his body  and all that remained on him was a  pair of shoes. Oriel-half his head was  ground off from being dragged over  rocks and frozen greund and all his'  flesh was torn away from the bones. "  The deceased kept a stopping house  and stable on the Camp McKinney,.  wagon road in the early freighting  days. He was considered one of the  best riders in the country .and for a  long period cared for the large bunch  of thoroughbred horses owned by the  late Judge Haynes of Osoyoos.  THE YORK LOAN CO.  the Liquidator Issues a Circular to  Shareholders.  As a-number of local people are in-,  terested in the York County Loan and  Savings company, the following cii-7  cular f rom the liquidator is published  for their information:  " In order that shareholders of the ,  York County Loan and Savings coni-  pany may have an authoritative statement as to the present position of affairs the liquidator begs: to make the  following report:  "The liquidator finds upon the books *  of the company a substantial body of  assets, which, are...being.Listed, .enquired into and valued as rapidly as  possible, and which consist mainly of  cash on hand, collections still cue  from the company's collectors, mortgages, stocks and bonds and house  property; also a very large; tract of  vacant land in the City of Toronto,  which is well situated and will be sold  in such a manner as in the opinion of  the court will produce the best results.  "The liquidator will not be able for  many months to give even an approximate estimate of the return to  shareholders, but at the present moment and pending-further enquiry the  estate promises to realize a very substantial sum,  "The company's liabilities, except  to shareholders, are  apparently incon  siderable, but wiinSe^definiteTy ascer--  tained by the  usual  advertisement for  creditors in due course.  "It is the liquidator's earnest desire that shareholders should not be  put to any expense in the presentation  of their claims. Shareholders will,  therefore, send their receipt books to  the liquidator, 243 Roncesvalles ave.,  Toronto, and receipts for same will be  mailed to them. The books and cor*  espondence afFectincr the claims will  be filed and in due course each claim  will be dealt with in the course of the  liquidator'senquiry. Where the amount  shown due by the receipt book is verified by the books of the company the  liquidator will report the claim to the  couat for approval, and notify the"  shareholder. Where there is any difference the liquidator will coinmuiii*'  cate with 'the shareholder and adjust  the amount due in order that the claim  may be reported to the court for approval and a contest avoided.  " Shareholders may rest assured  that they will have ample opportunity  of making whatever representation  they- desire, but owing to the great  number of these interested the libui-  dator is at present forced to file im-  ���answered ull letters with respect to  shareholders' claims. These, however, will be dealt 'with and answered  at the proper time.  "In order that the shareholders may  be kept advised of the progress of the  lqiuidation, the liquidator will supply  all available particulars lo the press  from time to time.

This edition'is well worth  the purchase price to those interested in the Boundary and  even to those who should have a  greater knowledge of the mining  possibilities of the province.    .  mmssmnmm^fi^^  The. discussions incidental to  the settlement of the scale of  wages at the local smelter foran  eight-hour day developed  a line  . of argument which should have  the serious consideration of all  business men and others interested in the  city.    The cost of  living has always to be considered,in arriving.at a fair basis  of remuneration, for services rendered. Some of the men wiho  have been working hard foreleyen  or thirteen hours daily stated that  notwithstanding the most rigid  ���: economy they, were not able 7to  do more than provide for their  families on wages ranging from  $3.50 to $4.00 per' "day for seven  days.a week,, and that consequently a less,rate ,pf wages even  for, shorter hours would.; spell  deficits for them unless the cost  of; living was reduced. The  statement was made that board  could not be secured here for less  than $31 per month while,at  Trail, under similar conditions,  $25 per month was the highest  price paid by laboring men. for  board. This in itself is a difference of ,20 cents . a day which  means much, when more than a  thousand men are interested.  The statement was also made  that local stores charged more for  the necessaries of life, for clothing ; in fact that everything  that went to make up the aggregate cost of living was higher:  than, at points in British Colum-  biawhere mining, and* smelting  is being carried on under more  favorable economic conditions.  We do not propose to discuss  the : truth of these statements,  but we do know that while  that  ���feeling is^abroad-atnong-the-work-;  ing men and their employers it is  " a menace to the best interests of  the city.  I is also, a self evident fact that  if low grade mining in the Boundary is to become the success it  ought to be, everything that improperly increases the cost of  production and treatment must  be removed.  It is the duty of the citizens of  Greenwood to seriously consider  these matters. The hope of the  city lies in the sympathetic interests of the producers of wealth  in the welfare of the town. . We  cannot afford that the men should  continue to believe that they are  not getting a square deal from  the business men of Greenwood.  The inevitable result would be  0 co-operative stores and a centralization of all business around the  big mining companies, a condition most detrimental to the best  interests of the city.  The cost of living in Greenwood should not be higher than  at Trail or Rossland or Nelson.  If it is higher the sooner the people get together in an earnest  effort to remedy the grievance  complained of the better for  Greenwood and its citizens.  The Boundary Creek Times has  stated the fact again and again  that if Greenwood is to become a  town of importance it cannot be  left to grow just as Topsy did,  Our irrepressiblepremier, whom  the Toronto Telegram cruel ly describes as one who looks like  forty and talks like twenty-one,  has at last been muzzled. The  cautious Cotton, the taciturn Tat-  low and the phlegmatic Fulton  got together and lassooed the  curley headed Dick immediately  upon his arrival in Victoria. The  next morning the official organ  of the government in double-  leaded lines stated that the premier hadn't done it and never  said it.. There was no railway  policy and the newspaper reporter who gave Mr. McBride's  exact words was mistakea. All  of which is very interesting and  very gratifying. While '. the  trusty three areTtp be;; congratulated on' having, temporarily  tamed the premier, there is always danger that he will not remain lassooed: and like his counterpart.'.- Buster Brown," he:may.  break into some new mischief.-  The fever situation at Phoenix  is improving. There are no new  cases and those who are afflicted  are slowly recovering. The epidemic has been a most trying  one and ha--. U-en very expensive  to the city. Greenwood should  come to the assistance of her  nearest neighbor. A vote by the  city council granting financial  aid would doubtless be appreciated. The opportunity to reciprocate unfortunately may come  some day.  The Victoria Colonist is needlessly alarmed over the fact that  Mr. Robert Kelly visited Victoria  during the meeting of . Liberal  members there. As Mr. Kelly  did not attend the meeting nor  did he discuss politics with any  one present, the Colonist will  surely not deny him the rather  doubtful privilege , of : visiting  Victoria  CF*  CF*  CF*  CF*  <��_  CF*  CF*  CF*  CF*  CF*  CF*  CF*  CF*  CF*  CF*  CF*  "F*  CF*  CF*  CF*  CF*  CF*  CF*  Capital, all paid up, $14,400,000.

Now that the holiday season is  over the people will naturally  turn their attention to municipal  affairs. Nomination takes place  the-third Monday in January arid  election, if any, the following  Thursday. At least the Municipal Act says, so, but the Municipal Act of the/present day is a  fearful piece of blundering and  gives every evidence of having  had the most careful attention  from Hon. Charles Wilson, attorney-general. Under the act it is  mandatory for the new,council to  hold its first meeting at least one  week before it is elected! However  since the present attorney-general  began advising the government,  freak legislation is so common  that it is no longer a matter of  surprise.   We have received from the  presses of the Colonist Printing  and Publishing Company, Victoria, "Mother Earth's Treasure  Vaults," by Percy F. Godenrath.  It contains a number of interesting aH^icl^^descriptive~~of "lhe"  Boundary, Southern Okanagan,  the Similkameen and Nicola.  They are written in Godenrath's  well known breezy style. The  book is interesting from cover to  cover. The views are excellent  and in many instances . are different from any heretofore published. " Mother Earth's Treasure Vaults" reflects the greatest  credit on the author and also on  the publishers, as typographically it is a thing of beauty.  Dr. Mathison has consented  to become an aldermanic candi?  date in the North ward. No better material could be secured.  The future of the city is assured  if men of Dr. Mathison's stamp  can be induced to give some of  their time in the. city's service.

You need It right now—to-day.
Every day you put it off you loso money.
Suppose you soil some hogs atSccntsa pound,
and trust to your dealer's scales, which aro 1/20
out. That means a loss to you of 50 centa on
every. U00 pound hog.
Then you sell 1000 bushols of grain at 75 cents.
This dealer's scales aro only 1/.0 out, but your
loss is $18.75 on tho deal.
Tho loss on a few transactions of this kind
would buy a dozen scales.

He .will return to the high  school at Vancouver next week.  The first carnival of the season will  be held at the Greenwood skating rink  Tuesday, January 16. Some very  handsome prizes are being offered,  and the affair promises to be a huge  success, as more interest is being  shown this year at the rink than for  several years past.  There are no new developments in  the Midway & Vernon difficulty. No  definite news has been received from  New York by those locally interested,  as to whether the indebtedness of the  company will be paid, or work resumed  on the road. No doubt it requires time  to arrange all the details of financing  the difficulties of the comparip, so it is  not probable that any very great activity will be apparent at least until  spring.  The first carload of ore from the  Rambler, on the West Fork, is being  havled to Midway tor shipment  to the  smelter, Three carloads have been  mined this season. The ore will aver-"  age in the neighborhood of .$200 per  ton in silver and lead.   .    ���   ��� .  The net earnings of Fraser & Chalmers, Limited, in England, for the  year ending June 30,1905, were $144,-  610, and $443,010 was brought forward.  The directors  intimate that competi  tion for trade in South A fri ci lias been  keen, and for the first >ix months of  the fiscal year the demandfor heavy  machinery was small. In the last six  months business showed some improvement. A final dividend '.'of 4 per  cent, is proposed, making 12 per cent,  for the year, and leaving $431,695 to be  carried forward.

It is readily admitted that Greenwood is the Eldorado of the Boundary with all roads leading thereto,  and surrounded as it is, with such magnificent resources is destined in a few years to be a second Butte, If you  therefore want to participate in its future prosperity, now is the time to invest both in mines and real estate.

In 1904 coal cost in Alaska from $8  to $30 per ton, according to point of  consumption, the-lower figure being  obtained-in the southeastern territory,  and the higher quotation on the north  shore of'the Seward".peninsula. At  Nome when mining is active coal costs  from $15 to $25 per ton; but during the  closed'season it of ten sells at $30 to $40  per ton. Besides, the small production  of lignite, Alaska imports annually  over-123,000 totis of coal.  Steel pens were invented in 1803 by  an Englishman. When first marketed  they sold at $2.50 each and in sourse of  ten years they had fallenjto from 10 to  12centsi each.1 Steel'pens today are  mostly made by' machinery, though  the finer grades need considerable of  hand labor in finishing. In their  manufacture sheets of steel 6xl8incees  are cut into narrow strips, in breadth  rather more ��� or ��� less than .twice - the  length of the pen. These are annealed  and rolled to a required thickness.  The strips then are.passed where by  means of a bed and pnnchcorrespond-  ingy.pieces the shape of thepen, called  blanks,- ate quickly, cut out. The  firm's name is then stamped upon the  bit of metal. The blanks are then  pierced, which is cutting out,by punch  the central hole in the nib, and here  also the lateral 'slits, are cut. The  metal having.become so hard because  of rolling and stamping that it is  again annealed. The blanks, merely  flat bits of steel, are passed to a raising press where they are made concave  by being pressed into a g-rove by a  sinker. The next process is hardening  which is accomplished by heating the  pens to a" red heat in an iron box j>r  muffle and then' plunging in oil.  After this*tempering follows and they  are then scoured and cleaned by im-  mirsion/in soda7water7and dilute sul  phuric acid successively, and by  friction with sand and other solid materials. The outside.of the nib is then  ground upon emery wheels. Next is  the most delicate operation of cutting  the central split, upon the accuracy '-of  which the real value'of the pen exists.  After this the pen is placed lengthwise  on a chisel fixed in theVbed.of a hand  press. A decending lever 'carries; an.  other chisel which passes down just  clearing the7other with the greatest  accuracy. The pens are then colored  brown or blue by heating in a ae.volv-  ing metal cylinder over a charcoal  stove, and removing them when';; the  desired tint is attained; They are then  varnished by lac dissolved in naptha.',  dried by heat and are then ^eady: for  boxing iand market. Birmingham;  Eng., is the center of pen manufacture  and there an:output of .20,000,000, pens  a week is carried on the year around.  Such is the consumption of pens in the  Uni.te.d_ Stata'.cs. that it .isles'imated'  that -every inhabitant uses on ; the  average of four pens a year. C on  siderable of these pens ��� are of American make. A ton of steel will ma.e  300,000 pens..   In a year, 5.000 tons; of  steel is manuf actuaed into pens in all  theiworldy  There are a number of electrical  properties of minerals, like sulphur,  the diamond and topaz, become rather  strongly electric when rubbed, as with  a piece of silk, and show by this- their  power of attracting light substances,  such as bits of straw or paper. Again,  the crystals of some minerals, when  carefully heated or cooled, become  electrified and show opposite kinds of  electricity in different parts, as at the  two extremities; this is particularly  true of tourmaline. When both ends  of a tourmaline crystal are developed  it is common to find them different in  their crystalline faces. This dissimilarity of structure in the opposite directions of the axis is connected with  the property of becoming dissimilarly  electrified by change of temperature'.  Lubricating petroleum ot the'finest  grade is found in native condition gen  erally in the higher strata of the -pro'  ductive series at shallow depths; it is  often associated with more or le'sssalt  water, and usually range, from732 to  34 degrees Bautne. It is not affected  so far as its fluidity is concerned at a  temperature of zero or below,i arid it  commands the highest price of any  variety of natural petroleum.

Muntz's metal is  usually known as  yellow metal.  But few people availed themselves of  the opportunity to register as householders for the municipal elections.  The lists were closed at the en .. of the  year. There are 202 voters in the  South ward and 172 in the North.  J. E. McAllister, general manager of  the B. C. Copper Company, has been  ill since his return ,from New York.  While there he contracted a severe  cold, which necessitated his going to  the hospital. He.left for the west before fully recovering. He is now rapidly improving and expects to oe in  shape in a few days to direct the work  of erecting the new .smelter.  N. F. Kendall, accountant at the  Bank of Montreal, left for New.Westminster on Wednesday to join Mrs.  Kendsll, who had been spending the  holidays with friends there.

A distinct earthquake  was feit on Tuesday morning about  6 o'clock- It shook buildings, rattled  windows, drove women info hysterics  and'made'men feel nervous. No dam  age was "done.  When melted at a high temperature  borax has the property of dissolving  metallic oxides and of forming transparent colored glasses. By this means  the various metallic oxides may be distinguished in the flame of the blowpipe  in laboratory work.  Henry Madden has leased the Pacific  hotel from his father, H. B.

Raymond Prefontaine. *  Plaster of paris is powdered gypsum.  One part powdered gypsum is mixed  with two and a half parts water, a thin  pulp is formed, which after a time/sets  to a'.hard compact mass. By adding a  small qdantity of lime to the moistened  gypsum a very hard marble-like substance is obtained on setting.  The K. of P. ball Monday night  was one of the most successful affairs  of the kind ever held in the cit}*.  Nothing was left, undone by the committee in charge to make the dance an  enjoyably, one. The music was good  and all the arrangements perfect. An  excellent supper was served by Mr.  Thos. Walsh of the Kootenay hotel.'  While people naturally do not expect  the best service on a new line, still  some improvements might be made on  the Great Northern between Marcus  and Midway. The only coach for passengers is about as diriy as it can be.  It has also the unique feature of having only one lavatory. Considering  the heavy traffic between these two  points, some effort should be" made to  accommodate the traveling public  H, B. Munroe, formerly of Greenwood, is now in the new mining field  in New Ontario. Writing from Hari-  leyburg, he says: "I am here to look  at'some property for American people.  Of all the'holes for whiskey drinking  this is the worst I ever se.w. I met  Lennie, who used to be at Carmi. He  is looking after the Earle interests and  is doing the only good mining in the  camp. He got a piece of silver out the  other day which weighed 300 pounds���  a nice nugget. They have over five  cars of rich silver ore in their storehouse. There is nothing like this mining district in America. The n.ining  laws here suit nobody."  L. D, Kean, a pioneer, of .the  Boundary,   was  a  visitor  to  the  city   this  year.    Mr. Kean was a member of  the  grm of Holbrook, Kean & Co.,   operat  ing in   Myers  Creek.     He went to.the  Canadian   Northwest,   where   he   has  struck oil.
