L0GAN & C  9  Copper Street  Greenwood  BUCVILLE'  BOOMED  But It Was After a Long,  Long Delay  THAT ITS REDEMPTION CAME  When the People Threw Down Their  Hammers. Stopped Their Criticisms and Got Busy.  Bugville at one time gave  promise of being* an important  place. But Bugville slowly realized tlie ideals of its promoters.  It lacked one thing, and that one  lack cost it for many years the  chance of becoming the most important town in the district. Bug-  ville didn't lack in resource, or in  situation, it lacked simply in  public spirit and lojalty. The  air seemed good and the water  pure, but when it can.e to home  support and home development  the people were an   anaemic lot.  The people were intellectual  above the average, but they were  intensely apathetic. In deploring the gush and hot air of a  rival town, they went to the other  extreme of belittling everything  pertaining to themselves. Like  Uriah Heep, Bugville was too  humble. It seemed to be eternally apologizing for itself. Few  of the people wanted to own their  homes, and the best of them decried the value of real estate.  The chief industry of Bugville  was mining, but it took manv  years to convince the people that  they had mines. They always  looked for a property to peter out.  They called their style conservative, but some suspected it was  pessimistic. If a miner were dismissed by a company and felt  called upon to cast aspersions on  the merits of the property on  which he had worked, everybody  straightway heard of it and understood, as he whispered it,  "that the mine was no good. No  matter if a thousand tons a day  were coming from the property,  one disgruntled man could shake  public confidence in it. The most  careful city government-was criticized for what it tried to do, and  cursed for what it didn't try to do.  If a visitor saw merit in the  camp his ardor was likely to be  chilled by a dash of cold water  which , some citizen threw on it,  before the man had got his money  invested. If a company paid dividends the management was accused of juggling, and if it didn't  pay dividends it was accused of  mismanagement   or    worse.      If  for the very best educational  privileges obtainable. Everybody became possessed of a' spirit  of hopefulness. If men couldn't  sell their own properties, they  gave up knocking those of their  neighbors. They buried their  hammers aud used their heads.  And then the town began to  boom. New mines and smelters  were opened, and new industries  developed.  The population grew and homes  multiplied. The bouses and hotels were fresh-painted and the  back yards all cleaned up. The  place looked smart and was prosperous. A change in public  spirit was,responsible for the redemption of Bugville, and what  happened to Bugville may happen  3ret to Greenwood.  A SOCIAL EVENT  Marriage of Two Popular Young- People of Greenwood.  The home of ,*Mr. and Mrs. Mortimer  was the scene of a quiet but interesting- event Wednesday, evening-, July  3rd,when Mr. Reginald Harry Hewer,  superintendent of. the Sunset mine,  Deadwood camp, and Miss, Vina Mackenzie, who has been engaged' as  teacher at the T'eadwood school for the  past year, were united in marriage by  the Rev. M. D. McKee:  After a very tasty supper, served by  Mrs. Mortimer, the happy couple drove  to their��home at the Sunset mine,  whither the best wishes of their many  friends follow them.  1.

A PIONEER GONE  Joseph Taylor, a district pioneer,  and business associate in many properties with George VV.. Rumberger,  died at the Phoenix Hospital last Friday ahd was buried on Sundav. Mr.  Taylor had been * a resident of the  Boundary for 18 ye irs and during that  time owned considerable valuable property. He had the instinct to make  money but was too liberal-and free of  heart to save it. All the old timers  speak highly of deceased and a large  number of them attended  his  funeral.  WESTWARD HO!  A copy of the initial number of  Westward Ho ! has been received. This  new publication succeeds to the. business of the Western Canadian Magazine...and-dieconrits-its - predecessor in  make-up and merit. The design of  the promoters is to furnish the general  public with high class literature of a  distinctly western flavor, and we feel  assured they will make good, if they  can maintain the pace set in the first  issue. Mr. William Blakemore will..j  edit and Mr. Percy F. Godenrath manage the business affairs of. the new  magazine.  UP-TO-DATE  =*-  111  COPPER STREET  GREENWOOD  =_f8  somebody proposed an attempt to  boom the town he was crazy or a  grafter.' ��And so tlie thing grew,  until Bugville became a.regular  museum, its people a lot of fossils.  But the redemption of Bugville came at last. Some of its  people moved away, others got  "wised" up a bit, a little new  blood began to come in, and the  critics got tired. The pessimists  gradually died off, or dried up.  and the more hopeful element began to get its work in.  The men who worked in the  miues, the union men who insisted on a standard wage and  standard hours, stopped sending  orders to the department stores  and sweat shops east, and bought  goods at home. The mine owners  and managers patronized home  insurance agents . at standard  rates. The society people quit  ordering dress suits from itinerant tailors and representative, of  far-away houses and employed  the home tailor. The local print  shops did the work of the district  "aud lots of people who borrowed  their neighbor's paper to criticize it, decided to subscribe for  aud support it.  The man who was afraid to  furnish a home for fear he might  lose his job, decided to become so  valuable to his employer that he  couldn't afford to part with him  and built a neat little cottage and  settled down.  The citizens united  in   asking  The Spokesman-Review on Thursday contained the' announcement that  the V., V. & E., railway had reached  Oroville, and that trains would be running into that town by September, and  would reach Princeton, SO miles west,  by winter.  If [tsdeductions that the road into  the Similkameen would open up a great  territory for the benefit of Spokane,  are as far from the mark as its historical statements, the merchants on the  coast, who have never done much for  the Boundary, may hfcve some grounds  of hope yet.  Boy's Brigade church parade next  Sabbathevening. Service held in the  Presbyterian church 7:30 p. m.  The Bulkley valley and northern  interior generally is causing a great  deal *of excitement and homeseekers  and capitalists at present. The following very graphic account from a prospector who has seen much of the coun-  try~aiid will be found of interest:  "After necessary inquiries, and furnishing ourselves with very excellent  maps which the provincial government  of British Columbia distributes gratis,  we lefc Vancouver bound for Ashcroft,  via the Canadian Pacific railway, and  from there our trip into the northern  interior of British Columbia really  commenced. From Ashcroft to Ques-  nel, a distance of 230 miles, there is a  fine wagon road, along which in all  the most favorable positions are  ranches or farms, apparently in a most  thriving-condition' These ranches in  nearly every case combine the business  of hotels for travelers. The road in  question is a relic of old times (although  now very much altered to secure easier  grades), the original one being built  in the early sixties, during the 'Cariboo  gold rush, by the Royal engineers.  For many miles along this road the  land has to be irrigated, so naturally  there is" still a great deal unsettled,  and not worth settling, as water cannot  be obtained.; Owing to Guggcnlieimer,  of New York, opening up extensive  hydraulicing work, the baffle this summer will be exceptionally heavy.''  THE.TEVSCRA-*H TRAILS. '*'  "Having negotiated this first and  easy part of the trip, we proceed to  swim the mighty Fraser at Quesnel���  although 500 miles from the mouth,  there is a tremendous  body, of water���  a ti d " take " the telegr a'ph���tr a iii. This  later follows the trenches of the Fraser  and then leaves it to take a northwesterly direction, and here we get into a  really new country. Of the 160 miles  between Quesnel and Fort Fraser. a  whole book might be written, giving  some particulars of its scenery and  sporting attractions. In all the creeks  and lakes trout are exceptionally numerous. We cross the Blackwater, fifty  niiles from Quesnel, and Mud river,  associated in most people's minds with  the mysterious loss of Curtis in the  Klondyke rush, a mystery which will  never be cleared. The next point of  interest is the Nechaco valley,* with  Stoney Creek reserve in the center,.and  in this distrit t many people have  staked their all on the hope of a Grand  Trunk Pacific coming through. About  twenty niiles. from here, you cross the  Nechaco river at Fort Fraser; a Hudson's Bay trading post stands at the  foot of the Fraser lake, and similarly  here a lot of land has been pre-empted.  The trail goes along the north shore of  the lake for fourteen miles, and here  we leave it to the Endako and Francis  river by canoe and swim _th___pack  horses. We then struck west to the  foot of Francis lake, occupying about  half a day. Here we had to ford the  southeast corner of the lake for a  quarter of a mile���at high water this  will be found a treacherous crossing,  as there is only one firm landing place.  OOTSA   I.AKK  COUN'-KY.  "We how turn southwest for four  days, till  we strike Cheslatta lake at  the Ootsa lake country, altogether  about 600 miles from the starting point,  and an excellent point to lay off and  rest, and, incidentally, to hunt bear  and deer, bear signs in the last 200  miles being as numerous as rabbit runs  in an old country park.  "Having rested we go . on south,  swimming Ootsa lake at the foot.  Chelaslie and the Tet-a-chuc rivers-  all within twenty miles���and along an  old Indian trail for 150 miles, till we  arrive at the top of a mountain overlooking the Bella Coola valley. The  next eight miles is the worst of the  whole trip���a drop of 6,500 feet in  about two hours���till we land at the  Bella Coola river, and cross on the  scow, and then a wagon road all the  way to the Salt Chuck, about twenty-  four miles distant, from whence the  steamers take you to Vancouver.  CI.IMATK RXCRLLEN-.  "Among the many points which impressed the party were the enormous  amount of excellent agricultural land,  the large extent of saleable timber (as  shown by the uses the Indians put it  to), and the probable mineral resources  of this stretch of country. From an  agricultural point of view, the further  north we got the better the climate in  summer, and, from information gathered from the settlers, the winters are  not extremely hard. Cattle and horses  winter out. Another point which one  cannot help commenting upon is the  advantage our American brothers are  taking of the open invitation to share  our good things. What settlers there  are in this country are mainly Americans. At the same time one cannot  say too much for their hospitality and  kindness toward strangers in this  wilderness.  "This is at present a country essentially of rifle and rod, armed -with  these weapons, a man will never starve  The country between Fraser lake and  Bella Coola is worth the attention of  men who want to have the sport of  killing the grizzly and caribou. There  are a few big horns near Bella Coola,  and there is no doubt of the presence  of mountain goat. The whole showed  us the advantages this infant province  has over its rivals on the other side of  the mountains7 There is room here  for the capitalist, tlie homeseeker "and  the working classes. This is the most  promising province of the. Dotmriion.  People requiring to go in will obtain  horses and outfit either at Bella Coola  or Ashcroft, and,: if necessary, guides  who know the trails. We had onz  saddle and one pack horse to the man."  ���Vancouver World.  CARPING ��� CRITICISM  The Chief Stock-in-Trade of  Foster.  THE CONSERVATIVE PARTY  Without a Policy, and With  Their  Chief Orator Discredited by  Their Leading Oreans.  SOCIALISM  The Western Federation of Miners  has declared for Socialism in an emphatic manner. At the recent convention held in Denver, out of a voting  strength of 350, over 80 per cent voted  to make it a plank in the platform of  the organization. Whether or not  this decision will strengthen the body  may best be known only after the  lapse of considerable time.  PRICES OF METALS  The prices of the metals continue  very satisfactory, and with slight fluctuations, hover around  the   following:  Copper       22 cents  Silver    - 67 cents  Lead     5% cents  BOARD OF TRADE  A meeting of the Greenwood Board  of Trade will be held in the offices of  the Bealey Investment company on  Saturday afternoon, July 6th, at four  o'clock sharp. Business of importance  will come before the meeting and a  full attendance is requested..  Never was a great political party in  such straits as the Conservative party  finds itself today. After being in opposition for eleven years, and having  witnessed the extraordinary development of the Dominion under the fostering care of a Liberal administration,  it has nothing to offer the people to  induce them to abandon the government of Sir Wilfrid Laurier. Neither  can it point to any portion of the present policy and successfully combat it,  and suggest a change.  Lacking possession of constructive  policy, the Conservatives charged  slanders against individuals, graft  against government officials, and extravagance was alleged against the  administration.  Under these circumstances the people  are led to reflect upon the men in public life who employ such methods, and  inquire into their record. First and  foremost comes Hon. Mr. Foster. This  verbose politician is gifted with an  extensive vocabulary, which he uses to  denounce his political opponents. His  gift of language enables him to,make '  the most of trifling incidents, and he  is not careful to coafine himself to the  text.  7    FOSTER-TITE MUD SLINGER.

Foster. For months past his  his maledictions have been heard in  the house. No member of lhe Liberal  party was immune, from his attacks,  nothing was too contemptible for him  to say with regard to supporiers of the  government.  WHAT MADE Hilt CHiNG^?  Suddenly there came a lull. What  had happened? Mr. Foster had announced that he would deliver a speech  on the financial condition of the  country, and incidentally burn up  Hon. Mr. Fielding and .his financial  dealings. About this time the government passed a pension bill .for ex-  cabinet ministers, which benefitted Mr.  Foster to the extent of 53,500 per an-  nnm. This is all that happened. Mr.  Foster became^ pensioner of. the government. He received S3 500 for doing  nothing. A sample of extravagance  which he could not find it in his mind  to condemn, and the declamation  against extravagance never materialized. The attack on the finance mini- -  ter was never made. This was Foster  -the-n-an,--not--Foster-the-politician.   Upon reflection the government considered the pensions to ex-ministers an  unnecessary extravagance and decided to repeal the act. Whereupon  Mr. Foster lost his S3.500 per annum,  which he had been enjoying in month  ly payments, and for which he performed no services whatever", an extravagance which he would have sanctioned and enjoyed for the remainder of  his natural life, had not the government decided to curtail expenditures.  No sooner was this bill repealed, an  action which Mr. l*\_ter resisted, than  Foster, the politician, appeared, ami his  denunciations were heard upon every  side, and he declaimed ihe loudest  _gu:nst waste of public funds.  ins si:%s i'-<i[,'Nii him hut.

Pkb YBA.K    2 ����  Sii Montbb -  1 25  To FoKBIGW COUNTRIES .- 2 50  FRIDAY   JULY 5 1907  lS-NOW-e0MPENSA-TED-  ously when they rode to town in  a, third class car aud ate their  lunch en route, now a common  railway car and a comfortable  restaurant on the way do not  suffice, men want a Pullman and  a dining car for a long distance,  and at least a chair car and the  buffet for a fifty mile trip.  While some of this increase is  chargeable to man's vanity or  man's extravagance, much of it is  due to the demands of modern  life. A five dollar -bill has little  chance these days to remain unchanged for any length of time  in a man's pocket. Early in the  day it is changed into silver, and  before night-fall the silver' has  srone into the channels of trade,  some for real some for imaginary  wants. It is safe to say that  man's happiness has not grown  proportionately with his earning  or his spending powers. The  simpler habits of the earlier days  brought greater happiness we  believe than the more complex  ones of today. While a few millionaires are being made by manipulation rather than bj- thrift or  honest methods, the thousands  are sweating and toiling as never  before. While man is 'driving  his improved machinery at terrible rate, society is driving the  man at even greater speed. And  so we cannot escape the reflection  that present day methods aud  present day prosperity, do not add  to the sum  of'-human happiness.  BY  T.   MARVIN NICHOLS.  The most successful in the social  world rarely have tremendous-talents.  If they, had, it is likely they would desert the social for either the artistic or  the industrial world.  EDITORIAL NOTES  Every   mistake   of   today  is a  mortgage on tomorrow.  One of the best ways to boom a  town is ts raise the standard of  its schools.  He is the meanest kind of a  spendthrift who tells all he knows  about his neighbours.  Thomas W. Lawson has recovered from his severe attack on  Wall street aud its methods, and  is now booming stocks again.  Mining is the spinal column of  the Boundary, aud every vertebrae in it appears particularly  sound.  Many a man claims to be honest  because he pays a hundred cents  on the dollar. His honesty never  prevents his filching from his  neighbour's reputation every  chance he gets.  The grafters are being hit hard  all over the United States. Some  of the wealthy ones are behind  prison bars and yet we are in the  habit of saj-ing that money, will  save one over there.  The Missouri railroads have  agreed to give the 2 cent fare law  a three months trial. It is now  up to the Missourh-us to show  the railways that this'���will'"pay.  It is reported that the greed of  the politicians for spoils is hampering the work of building the  Panama canal. The same greed  was charged with having needlessly prolonged the civil *war.  In every department of life and  business, prices are  on  the move  upward.    The cost of living increases at an alarming rate.  The  wage-earner    with   present   day  returns cannot be much better off  than he was a score  of years ago  ��� with  his  earning   capacity   say  half what it is today.     The  cost  of everything consumed  steadily  grows higher.     Income  and expenditure seems bound to balance  each   other   in - the   aggregate.  When the price of a manufacturer's   commodity    increases,     the  man, upon whose labor  the  product depends,   wants more pay.  When the laborer gets more pay,  the  landlord   wants   more rent,  the merchant more profits.  When  rents   improve    and     living   increases it costs more  to buy a lot  or build a house.   When the business of the country demands more  railroads and  more  money,    the  interest  rate  advances.    And so  in  one  vast  moving,  constantly  enlarging circle the matter rolls.  Man finds himse'f constantly at  the foot of a mountain which he  must climb,' and the greater his  strength for climbing, the steeper  the mountain sides appear to rise.  Little wonder that many apparently strong and prosperous men  choose rather to quit than to endure the toil. Some are brave  enough to return to a more natural and simple life, others cowards  enough to surrender life itself.  Meet the problem of today in the  light of the present. You play a losing game when you try to unlock the  door of the future with a rusty key  saved from the rubbish piles of the  past.  "How were you able to whip the  Austrians one to four? was asked of  Napoleon. And his answer was, "I  knew the value of tim.*." The man  who learns that trick is a sure winner,  no difierence what he sets  about to do.  Emerson declares that every rclorm  was once a private opinion, and when  it shall be a private opinion again, it  will solve the problem of the age.  The world will always be bitter for  the woman who has known love, protection and material support, and has  deliberately renounced them all.  A discord is only harmony misun der  stood. It is not always the silver chord  that's out of tune. The ear may lose  the power to catch the sweetest strains.  How true that is ! Is the life of some  struggling spirit a discordant note to  you? Is the heart all out of tune ? It  may be your ear is insensible to the  sweetest note. If we ouly knew that  discord is harmony���oh, if we only  knew that���we would be charmed by  music soft and low that now seems so  discordant to us.  Character is the product of antagonisms. The muscle is made strong  under severe strain. We appreciate  the strength of an ocean-going steamer  by the many and terrible storms she  weathers. The wearisome journey to  the distant mountain height is necessary for the larger vision.

The  development of an original conception  is no easy matter when one has arrayed against a new project many men of  power and much capital, and when one  has to surmount the apathy of men  who prefer former customs to better  ones.  A year ago, after spending 3100,000  in developing the American field, the  -iffairs of the Semi ready Company  reached a crises, the inner,history of  which may never be told.  To-day the.Semi-ready Company is  in a stronger and betier position than  it ever was, and chiefly because men  everywhere have accepted the system  of tailoring which has proven itself.  The popular verdict is a great asset.  The Semi-ready trade-mark label on  a suit is the emblem of correct form, of  good style, aud of superb tailoring,  whether  that label be on a SIS, S20 or  Is under the management of  Morrison.

The contraction of the muscles explains why a victim cannot let  go a live wire after grasping it. Even  if a person becomes unconscious, his  life may yet be saved by proper treatment, such as artificial respiration.  To drive a spike under water it has  been suggested that a piece of gas pipe  large enough to hold the spike comfortably, and small enough to keep it  upright, might be used in conjunction  with the steel drift slightly longer  than the pipe. The length of the pipe  will depend upon the depth of the  water, while the dri:t should leave a  hand hold above the pipe. By means  of this expedient the spike will necessarily go at the angle at which the pipe  is held, and the drift readily transmits  the hummer blows to its head.  lueen's Hotel  The only  Temperance House in town.

When a man is condemned by his  own supporters and friends then it is  time for the people to take some action  in the matter. Mr. Foster contemplates  remaining in public life, and offering  himself again to the electors of North  Toronto. Alluding to this incident  the Toronto News, a paper not friendly  to tho government, says of M.Foster  that  ���"he  cannot see  the  ethical argu  ment   in   the   handling   of    fiduciary  funds, and that therefore he is lacking  in some of the vital  qualifications   for  public service."  The Montreal Star.a Conservative  paper of large inllttence aud great circulation, says ot Mr. Foster:  "It was Mr. Foster who knew perfectly well the laws of this country  concerning the investment of trust  funds, and who violated these laws by  borrowing money on behalf of a syn  dicate from the Union Trust company,  of which he was manager, on the se  curity of stock in a speculative land  company." - '  This is the man who asks that Hon.  Mr. Fielding, a gentleman whose in  legrity and personal character have  uever been questiot.ed, should be retired, and the position of minister of  finance be given lo one who combines  the qualifications of opportunist/politician and speculator.  -IiSI'EPKESICNTATlON  NOT AKGUMBST.  When an eminent member of the  government of Sir Wilfrid Laurier addressed the people, the Opposition press  seeKsthe opportunity to misrepresent  what was said, and perpetuate the policy of-personal abuse and slander, the  despicable weapons of the advocates  of a lost cause. Hon. Mr. Aylesworth,  minister of justice, notwithstanding  that he bears on his shoulders the burden of the two great departments, he  being the acting minister of public  works at the time, found lime to journey to South Huron and deliver an address to the electors of that constituency.  DENOUNCED DEGRADING  TACTICS.  After devoting some time to an elaboration of the government's policy,  and explaining to the people the prac  tical redemption of Liberal pledges,  Mr. Aylesworth passed on to a discussion of Conservative tactics. As the  ministei of justice observed, having  no policy, they employed slander, being-without any alternative, they in-  dulg'*. in-personal attacks.  The minister drew particular atfen-  tion to the fact that the leader in this  mode of political warfare, was Mr.  Foster, who had himself been proved  guilty of the very things against which  his invective was directed. Further  than this, Mr, Aylesworth drew upon  politicalhistory to prove that in the  Conservative   ranks   there   had; been,  ai-d-wcrcatrthia --moment, ��� rn��n���- gftulty.  of the very things charged against the  Liberals. The minister : of justice  deprecated this character of political,  warfare, but he deplored the fact that  investigation would show many Conservatives guilty of worse than had  been alleged against the Liberals.  The large annual outlays of the government were spoken of, and the minister acknowledged that with all the  care exercised, there would be occas  ional instances of overcharge, but on  the whole the government, haying iri  view* the enormous expenditure every  year, got value for..its money, and was  not unduly imposed upon. The loss  ���was trifling compared to the heavy  outlay.  DEPRECATED  SLANDER.  The minister of justice deprecated  the' policy of slander and personal  -abuse."He=wotild-welcome-a-discus_ioti-  of public affairs if conducted upon a  high plane, but he would not entertain  any respect tor political opponents who  had nothing to offer the people but  unwholesome repetitions of slanderous  allegation.  Mr. Aylesworth concluded by paying  a glowing tribute to the many1 excellencies ef the great Liberal leader, Sir  Wilfrid Laurier, and he made touching  reference to the respect and reverence  in which that distinguished statesman  is held, not only by the Liberal party,  but generally throughout the British  empire. ��  Each 50c purchase entitles you to one chance  on the beautiful 97 piece Combination  Dinner aud Tea Set-in our window.  .';-.. . ��� .

As the liquid air gradually evaporates, the period between  filling and firing is limited to below 10  minutes. A missfire is not dangerous,  because at the end of half an hour the  liquid has entirely disappeared and the  cartridge may again be handled with  safety. The use of this economical  explosive had to be abandoned in the  tunnel by reason of the quantities of  carbon monoxide which it produced in  the constricted space.
