The masquerade carnival held Tuesday night in the rink was a brilliant  affair. For several hours the ice was  moving with many fancy and amusing  costumes. The decorations, worn by  the gay throng exhibited much originality of design and though some ap-  preached the hideous and grotesque;  the greater number were artistic and  pleasing.  The prize winners were as follows:  Best dressed married lady, Mrs. G. R.  Yates, Britannia, 2 sacks of flour, donated by the Russell-Law-Caulfield Co.;  best dressed .single lady,  Miss "Wood,  Frence__B_elle. manicure _se_t,byi_ A.  Logan & Co.; best dressed gentleman,  VV. R. Medill, Spanish Torreador, silk  hat, by . Russell-Law-Caulfield Co.;  best dressed girl, Miss Alice McMynn,  Gipsy Girl, album, by Rendell & Co.;  best dressed boy, Robert Keffer, Chinaman, skates, by Hunter-Kendrick Co.;  best comic character, Miss Emil Clerf,  lady coon, prize by Coles & Frith. The  prizes were were all well merited.  SOME OF THE COSTUMES.  There were other highly artistic  costumes, among them being Miss  Columbia, whose costume matched  pleasingly with that of the Indian  Rajah, with white turban and uni  form. The Spaniard and the Highland  Lassie made a pretty couple, while the  two lady minstrels with silk hats, long  black coats and canes, looked dignified and important. Tha Plumed  Knight, with white breeches sword  and sash, looked gay and gallant,  while the Tennis Girl looked summery  in calico and straw slouch hat. Portia  was wise and persuading as befitted  her profession, and the Nurse and  Horse-woman were practical and plain.  The little Country School Girl was  playful and pretty. The Cowboys,  Soldier Boys and Clowns all helped to  make up an interesting assemblage,  and there were many other costumes  that lent color and beauty to the scene.  A large number of spectators lined  the narrow spaces at the entrance and  sides and many exclamations of delight were heard.  The judges were Mrs. Parker, Mrs.  E. W. Bishop, George Collins and C.  Scott Galloway. The Citizens'Band  played suitable tunes at regular intervals and the music was much enjoyed  by all present.  Jas. C. Dale of Carmi is in the city.  THE FREE LIBRARY  A  Movement  on Foot  to  Secure Larger Premises Shortly.  FOR A GYMNASIUM, TOO.  Prominent Citizens Think That Attractive Features Should be Added  The people of Greenwood are all  more or less familiar with the extent  to which the present Free Library is  filling a public need. Since it was  opened it has been frequented by numbers of men who have enjoyed the facilities it affords for profitably passing  spare hours. Important as has been  the good work accomplished in the  past, there is however a 'strong feeling  among the most influential men of the  city that it is falling far short of its  full mission and it has been pointed  out that the number of men who  habitually frequent the place are decreasing and that its popularity is  waning. It has never for a moment  been hinted that for this reason the,  work should be discontinued, but on  the other hand it has been advocated  that the facilities for entertainment  should be extended and its powers of  attraction materially strengthened. To  accomplish this it has been suggested  that new premises be seeured and  equipment for a gymnasium be installed. This suggestion has come,  not in any way from any organized  body, religious or otherwise, but it  arises from the interest that numerous  business men and their employees are  takinp-jjux the. institution.  WHAT IS PLANNED.  It is generally conceded that the  present reading room is too unattractive and largely unsuited to the growing needs of Greenwood. The proposition that is now engaging the attention of prominent parties 'includes the  securing of larger and more comfortable premises; the installation of gymnastic apparatus to be used under the  direction of an experienced athlete;  the equipment of a well lighted and a  well kept reading room, with the daily  papers, and a wide range of interesting magazines, as well as providing  such innocent games') as will interest  the men and youth who will find it  profitable to enjoy its advantages. It  iaTfuffher "propoMa^that^atte'ntiorrbe"  paid to the entertainment of juveniles  during the day and evening until the  hour of curfew when they would be  expected to return to their homes. For  the defraying of current expenses,  such as may be incurred by rent, light,  heat, reading matter and caretaker it  is proposed to charge a nominal membership fee, payable monthly or otherwise as may be found best.  It has already been ascertained that  another building can be secured and  the extended interest that has already  been displayed is sufficient to ensure  the co-operation of the general public.  PUBLIC  SPIRITED.  With this, as with all other kindred  movements, those who are to receive  most direct benefit will be the hardest  to secure assistance from and the unselfish pramoters of this movement and  their friends are likely to be called  upon to bear some sacrifice for the  sake of others. When the new institution has been brought into working  order and has won the merited patronage and co-operation of all classes  it will have become the beginning of  an institution without which no city  is now considered complete.  The control of such an institution  may be vested in the city council,  making that body responsible for the  expenditure of all money subscribed or  the use of all donations of literature,  games or other equipment that might  be made, or it might be conducted under the supervision of a citizens* committee composed of a president and  board of directors. Iu either case a  highly responsible Dody would be in  charge and a safe and intelligent management secured.  The promoters of this movement are  deeply interested and,they especially  desire that men ot influence and the  heads of families shall lend all the assistance within their powe-  '.  A SERIOUS ACCIDENT  Three Men Injured by Premature Explosion in  the Quarry.  ARE   IN   THE   HOSPITAL  One Loses His Lee and Others Are  Painfully Cut and Bruised.' 7 ���  A _serious accident occurred at the  Mother Lode about 8 o'clock Wednesday morning, when Matt.Russick was  dangerously in jured and James Engean  and James Pascoe were painfully cut  andjbruised. The accident was caused  by a premature explosion of-dynamite.  It is not positively known what was the  actual cause of the explosion. The  men were engaged in _ buldosing  rock in the quarry and it is believed  that the fuse which had been "lighted  suddenly came in contact with the  bare powder, igniting the charge,  which exploded at .Russick's , foot,  shattering his lower leg in* a frightful  manner. A series of charges J-ad just  been prepared and were on the eve of  exploding and the injured man," unable  to move, would have been blown to  pieces had his mates', not bravely re's- ,  cued him from his perilous positioiJ'  A rope was hastily thrown", wittiiiv-nia- 7.  reach and .grasping one end he was , ' ,  drawn quickly out of harm's ,-wa'y.

All   three   were   brought to the  Greenwood hospital Wednesday.tijora^.  ing, where they, are.iJ.ow.yndsr.the care <j>*��> '.,','  of Dr. Oppenheimer and  Dr. Spankie'.'"f';���-'?���-  Upon examining Russick it was found        ','' *  that    amputation    was     immediately  necessary.    Dr. Oppenheimer successfully performed the operation Wednesday afternoon,  amputating below the  knee.    The ^patient is now doing as  well as can  be expected.   The other,  two will be under medical care for a  week or two.  GREENWOOD COUNCIL  The List of Men Who Will Control  the City.s Affairs During 1906.

The new-  department will then go.to Senator Templeman.

A Mrs, Peck, living at Mount  Ayr. . ioway, has brought suit  against the Duffy Malt Whiskey-'  people for publishing her portrait iu connection with a testimonial for that beverage written  by a Chicago woman, Mrs. O.  Shu-nan. The latter, it is said,  has made a business of giving  medical testimonials, and in this  case furnished the photograph of  the Iowa woman, "which was in  her, possession. Mrs.' Peck-is a  temperance advocate, and sues  because she has been grievously  mortified and damaged-- This  practice of .faking testimonials  for - whiskey advertisements is  but an example of how they are  obtained for thousands of quack  mcdiciues. Some of the most  plausible letters ancl photographs  appearing in patent medicine announcements in some of the leading newspapers all over America  were invented by some professional ad writer and contain not  the smallest particle of truth.  The most reputable ^publications  in both Canada, and'the;United  States are now using careful discrimination in their selection of  patent medicine advertisements.  The .recent fearless and astonishing 7 revelations of Collier's  Weekly.have been a warning, to  both publisher and reader alike.  It costs "money to keep a paper  free' from *'quack ads'", but the  Boundary Creek Times as well as  others arc doiuo* it.  A recent issue of the Vancouver World contains au editorial  which tells of the case of an infant child having- died from the  eifects of a close, of a quack,'nostrum that was administered to  cure a common ailment. The  stuff was purchased to save a  doctor's bill but cost a life instead. A few such cases are heard  of but who can tell how many  are never told ?  Tiil* Ontario" government, like  the Dominion, is in a prosperous  condition. , F.or sonic years that  province has succeeded iu showing substantial surpluses'and the  past year has not failed in that  respect. The total revenue for  the }-ear was something over  $6,000,000. In New ���Brunswick,'  on the other hand, there is" a  deficit. .'It. may.' be pointed out  that the Maritime provinces have  no hinterland ,to exploit, though,  both New Brunswick aud Nova  Scotia have large undeveloped'  resources.  ' It is announced from  New Brunswick that the govern-  1 .."���'"'  ment will introduce a compulsor}-  education act at the approaching  session of the legislature. Educa  tion is a burning; question in  Quebec just uow. The hew .premier, '.Mr/ Gouiu', is determiuBd  that his.province will no longer  be behind the rest* of the Dominion and he has drafted a new  education bill which is now tinder consideration and. -which  promises to be.a most important  move in the interest of provincial  education. As a result of a recount in the constituency of High  .River, the opposition in, the Alberta legislature now has two  seats. Jn our own province, the  balance sheet now before the  legislature shows an improvement over past years. The government has at its disposal iu the  Canadian Bank *o'f Commerce- a  current account of $525,804, while  the cash iu the treasury is shown  as $3,262.88-  ������''.'-���'���..-' - ���  The Canadian' Forrestry convention, which held its meeting  recently in Ottawa, declared by  resolution that the time was ripe  for a general forest policy for the  Dominion and provincial governments, ' looking to the greater  protection of the present forest  areas aud the replanting of such  tracts of country as are unfit for  cultivation. Here is a chance for  the B. C. gouernment to get in  some good work.  Thk Liberal party in Great  Britain are winning all'along- the  line. .In the city of London they  are capturing seats that have  beeu Conservative for av'generation or more and throngs of  people are parading* the. streets  shouting for Campbell-Bauner-  man and free trade.  The Dominion revenue for the  past six months was $37,877,167  ancl the expenditures were $25,-  747,6C)5, leaving a surplus of over  SI 2,000,000. Looks as if Canada  was prosperous.  Gold was first discovered in Siskiyou county, California, in 1851, at  Yreka, and the business of placer  mining has been carried on uninterruptedly to the present day.  CALL.

The object  of  this  was to  prevent   the   wholesale   patenting   or  "blanketing" ot mining land  by  men  desiiousonly of  holding  for specula  tion.    It is obvious that  such blanketing would discourage real piospecting,  and   might  tie   up   large districts for  years, thus   preventing development.  The policy of requiring the satisfying  of officials did not  work* well in the  Yukon, for  it  was claimed  that they  used their authority to advance the interests of  their   friends   and   further  their own ends.   This experience, made  both the prospectors and  the general  public suspicious,   and  confidence was  further shaken by the covert representations   of   certain    individuals    that  their   influence,,, if   stimulated   by    a  financial  consideration,   would   insure  favorable treatment  at  headquarters.  But so far it  is  the  universal   verdict  that the officials have done   their  duty  fearlessly and  honestly'.    While  it  is  not desiiable that powers  of such moment be intrusted to any.official, every  oromising.m'eansof preventing blanketing will be endorsed by the public.  * "The most difficult interest  to  deal  with satisfactorily will be that of   the  Debentures held by bank as per  contra. i.  '���-. .   .  .':.  4,344 42  16,000 00  innocent   purchaset   of   fraudulently-,  obtained" patents or leases, whether he  purchased directly or through -shares ,  in a company.   The man who traces a -  claim back   to   the   grant   from, the ,  crown and buys is entitled to consideration.    The government may have been ,  defrauded, but it was  culpable in per-  l  nutting the fraud.   The evil was done  in  granting  the patents   and   leases,  and  innocent purchasers have a right  to protection.   The best way to rectify  the error committed in granting claims  covering   large   tracts   is   to- impose  regulations   requiring* either development, or_abandonment. _The_man or   company   unwilling   to   proceed  with-1*  actual mining operations is in   the po��. >  sition of an obstructive speculator.    It  is in this regard that real improvement  may be  effected  in   the  mining  laws  and regulations.  " The prospector who  makes a discovery should have a  good chance to  secure a   reward   for   his hard work,   '  energy and enterprise.., ^.This .js neceir .  sary as a  stimulant. for-; the pioneer.*.'.'  But the alleged prospector who merely- -,:  acts to secuie claims  for speculative,  holding should be crowded out by such ,  regulations as that requiring the actual  demonstration   Of minerals found  in  place.     The    purchasers    of    claims   ���  should be prepared to proceed with de-..'  veiopment   work and   actual,  mining'  operations.     They, should, look.' for, 7  their reward from  the output-of the-  mines.   The speculative purchaser is,  only an obstructiou, and is entitled to  no consideration.    Regulations requir-.  ing   development   as ;a   condition   of, .  holding,will eliminate  the speculator,'  and will be no  hardship to those who..-  purchase witn   an  honest  intention to '.'  engage in aetual  ruining, operations."..'  ?-5?f  $170,267.11  S170.267 11  The Great English Iiemcdy.

THE BOUNDARY DISTRICT  Copper Mines of Greenwood and Vicinity Especially Active-  The following comprehensive review of mining operations in British  Columbia for the year 1905 was published jn the last number of the Mining Reporter. It deals most thoroughly  with the year's work and shows that  great progress has been made in all  departments of gold, silver, copper,  lead and zinc mining. Readers will  note that copper takes second place in  point of value and that this excellent  showing is the result of the active  operations in the Boundary district.  Reference is made to the Granby  smelter as the "peer of all others in  respect of its capacity and equipment."  The article continues:  "Weekly reports received during  1005 from the various camps in British  Columbia all indicated that a strenuous effort was being made to make  1905 a record breaking year in point of  production. Toward the end of the  year this spirit seemed intensified, with  the result th-*.t the final figures are indicative of the most prosperous twelve  months yet .experienced in the province. The estimated total value of  the metalliferous production, that is,  including silver, copper; lead and  zinc, is $15,913,000. This figure shows  an increase of $2,500,000 over the production of the corresponding metals in  1904. The production of coal, coke  ancl building materials,' which play  no small part in the prosperity of the  province, amounted to $5,050,000, a decrease of $500,000 compared with 1904.  This gives a total production of $20,-  963,000, ,which is an increase of about  10.4 per bent, over 1904. The quantity  of placer gold produced suffered a decrease of $5,300 as compared with the  the quantity produced in 1904, while  the gold produced from lode mines exceeded in value that produced in 1904  by a trifle over $50,000. The dry and  short season for placer mining was ac  countable for the lack of progress in  this branch of the industry. Taken as  i. whole, however, the production  established a new high record and  gives British Columbia unquestioned  claim to the distinction of being the  'mineral province of Canada.'  "The various sources from which  the mineral value of the output was  derived was shown in the following  table:  Gold���placer .?  $1,110,000  __Gold���lode...., .,._.._._. _4_.640,000___  Silver  ......  2,045,000  Copper...... :.    5,430,000  Lead.....    2.368,000  Zinc        320,000  ���'It will be noted that copper takes  second jrank in value of production.  The year has certainly been a favorable  one for copper mining, tor if the larger  copper companies conducted profitable  operations in ,1904,with copper at an  average price of about 12.5 cents, there  is every reason to believe that with  the improved market conditions and  almost total absence of labor troubles,  the result of the 1905 operations were  ��� .'JviKiKI  &:0&Y  certainly most satisfactory. The estimated gain in copper is attributable  mostly to the Bouudary district, to  which an increase of nearly $1,000,000  has been credited.  " The increased output of lead and  silver is attributable almost entirely  to East KoDtenay, and in facr to a  single mine���the St. Eugene. Conditions at this property seem to be  especially favorable to'a large output  of valuable ore.  "The production of zinc in 1905  probably represents in only a small  degree what may be expected of the  province in the next year or two. The  recent ruling of the department of the  treasury of the United States regarding  the importation of zinc ores will probably have the effect of keeping a large  quantity of British Columbia zinc out  of the American markets. There has  already been ample evidence given  that this will be taken advantage of  by Canadian interests to establish  zinc reduction works on a large scale  and handle the output of their own  mines. As has been pointed out in  this journal before, there is quite a  striking analogy between .the conditions which at one time existed be  tween lead mining and smelting in the  province and that which now exists  relative to zinc mining and smelting.  If the results that were achieved in  the home production of lead are any  criterion, we may expect to see Canadian zinc smelters conducting a thriving business in the near future. One  of the chief subjects of interest in the  Sloean during the year was the work  done by the zinc commission appointed  by the Dominion government for the  purpose of investigating the industry  in the province. The work of the  commission so far has been preliminary to experimental work on_ore treatment, which will be conducted later.  Various types of magnetic and electrostatic separators are being tested and  and no effort is being spared to complete the work as rapidly and thoroughly as possible.  "Iu Rossland considerable interest  has centered about the Le Roi, Center  Star and War Eagle mines, owing to  the proposed combination of those  properties, which has been in the air  for many months. It is interesting to  note that in the latter part of the year  A. J. McMillan', who had been removed  from the board of directors of the Le  Roi company on account of his opposition to the proposed amalgamation  mentioned above, has since won out in  in his fight for re-instatement, and is  again managing director of the Le  Roi Company'at Rossland. A recent  consolidation proposition which was  rejected so far as the Le Roi Mining  Company was Concerned, involved the  amalgamation of the Center Star, War  Eagle, Le Roi, St. Eugene and the Canadian Smelting works at Trail. It is  probable that this proposition was rejected owing to the questionable value  of treating the Le Roi Company's ore  at the Trail works, instead of at the  Northport plant, Washington.  '��� The smelting industry of British  Columbia is developing very satisfactorily. At Marysville is located the  lead smelter "of "the "Sullivan Mining  company, and at this point the Hun-  tin gton-Heberlein proeess of roasting  lead ores was introduced last year. At  Pilot Bay, Nelson and Trail in West  Kootenay are other smelting plants.  The first mentioned plant was only recently acquired by the Canadian Metals  Company .while the latter has been adding to its capacity and improving its  equipment throughout the' year. In  the Yale district there are four smelters, located at Grand Forks, Greenwood, Bouudary Falls and Kamloops.  The last mentioned plant has been  erected merelj- for experimental purposes and is not to be classed with the  others. The Granby plant is easily  the peel of all others in the province  in respect to its capacity and equipment. The Hall Mines smelter, situated at Nelson, is supplied with ores  from the lower Kootenay and the  Boundary country. In addition to  owning the Pilot Bay smelter, which  it recentl3* acquired, the Canadian  MetalsCompany also owns and opera tes  a zinc smelter at Frank, Alta."  4��  *  *���  Electric  current   supplied   for  Power, Lighting, Heating and  Ventilating.

W  ^  Greenwood Seniors and Juniors Both  Defeat Phoenix*  The return hockey match between  G-reenxrood and Phoeuix seniorsThurs-  day night resulted in a victory for the  home team of 2 to 1.  The Phoenix rover, McKinnon, was  injured early in the game by being  struck in the small of the back by the  puck and was unable to* continue the  play. He was'taken home to Phoenix  and soon recovered from the shock.  The game was fairly evenly contested, though Greenwood had more  advantage than the-score would indicate, and had it not been for the excellent playing of Goal Keeper Wade  the winners would probably have  doubled their scene.
