Among the institutions of Greenwood of which the people may be  proud and which speaks loud in testimony of the progress of the city, is the  Sisters'hospital... It is an institution  that has passed through some of the  dark yeais of commercial depression,  and like others, that have persistently  struggled on, it. has weathered the  storm, ancl come out stronger, better  equipped and ready .to enjoy all the  advantages of a new, prosperity, for  hospitals like everything else are  largely influenced by commercial condition's.  ..  .THE   BKGINNINn.  The present hospital began its career  of charity and blessing -in the summer  1901, when the Sisters of St. Joseph  purchased : a building formerly occupied as a public school. For some  years previous to . this a private, hospital had been conducted by Ors. Oppenheimer and Jakes ih abuilding 011  the hill above the city hall. When the  Sisters proposed to open theirs an arrangement was made by which the former waa closed and. the . building, wis  divided and turned into dwelling;  houses. After .ecuring' possession of.  their building the..sisters.!built .in addition and rearranged ������".lie" interior V  At that time the financial condition of  the order was not particularly strong  and had it not been for the encouragement und wise discretion of Rev.  Father Bedard. O. M. I., it is doubtful  if the project would have been carried  into successful effect. Lack of ready  means and a strong disinclination to  assume large obligations necessitated  nutting up with the barest necessities.  Partitions dividing the wards were  constructed of rough lumber without  plaster or paper, the furniture was  plain and simple, the iloors bare and  the general furnishings only such as  necessity demanded. As time went  on and the patronage increased, improvements were gradually undertaken  imt-Ut.wo^yea_S:i-agO--the--build-ng--w.as=  thoroughly remodeled and placed in a  comparatively up-to-date condition.  PRESRNT CONDITIONS .  The present capacity provides for  about twenty-five patients. The large  public ward contains nine beds and  the small public ward four. Th.re  are five private  wards,   all  nicely fur-  Should Read  and Prosper  Here are Shoes it pays to Buy  ..." at Prices that Please.  nished with comfortable bedroom  suit, carpets and pictures. The floors  of the corridors are covered with  linoleum and e.erything is kept in a  perfect condition of order and cleanliness.  Thr.e verandahs provide plenty of  outside sitting room, where convalescents may enjoy the sunlight and fresh  air. One of the- verandahs is enclosed  with glass almost like a conservatory,  and can be used on chilly days or in  stormy weather. Altogether the appointments and home-like appearance  of the hospital gives an impression of  comfort f< r the sick and afliicted. The  building is equipped with up-to-date  sanitary improvements and every precaution is taken to protect patients  from any unfavorable conditions and  the past record has been most favorable  forthe treatment of dangerous cases.  At the present time there are four  patients under treatment���a smaller  number than usual. During the  autumn and winter months the number is usually much larger The hospital building is divided into wards,  operating room, toilet rooms, private  rooms for the Sisters, kitchen and  chapel, where divine service is held.  There are at present four sisters in  charge of the Mother Superior, all  trained nurses.  FINANCIAL  SUPPORT.  When the hospital was started the  city of Greenwood den a ted $3,000,  which was of great assistance. At the  present time the employees of the mine?  aiid smelters contribute regularly. 01 _  dollar per month towards its maintenance. This entitles them to free hospital and medical attendance. The  provincial government also lends its  assistance,' allowing one doll ir per day  for every patient treated up to the  limit of 51,000. Besides this of course  there istheincome.-frpmy patients that  pay the required fees. The: linanc<s  at "the present time are in. a" satisfactory condition. .77- .������  ���'���' While the .iosp.t'ai'is:' not e^ual.nTalf  respects to the model ones of large  cities, it nevertheless serves the pur-  posefor which it wan started, namely,  to provide medical treatment and care  for those without a home and for all  who desire to make use of the advantages it offers and in this it is fulfilling  its mission to the credit of those in  ch-arge aud of the city in which it is  situated.  SUB-STATION WORK.  The West KooU.nay Power and Light  Co., which is building a sub-station in  Anaconda for the distribution of electric power, started work Monday morning. The house ou the Smith property has been removed and excavating  for the foundation is now underway.  Grading is in progress for a spur track,  which will be used by the O. P. R. in  delivering -building supplies and  machinery. Machinery and equipment including transformers to the  value of S20,000 has arrived in the city  ready for installation. The transformers will step down ��� the' electric  current from 60,000. to 2,000 volts.  The building will be 52x56 feet and of  most substantial construction.

TEE CITY COUNCIL  Discusses Power Plant and  Waterworks.  MORE    MONEY   WANTED  Improvements Demand a  La_i.e Expenditure���Two  Bylaws to  Be  Voted on by the People.  The city  council  h_ld   another  important meeting-  last   Monday   night,  when the bylaws for  the  extension of  the waterworks system, to include a     '  reservoir on Providence creek, and for  an extension  of  the Greenwood Elec-  trii   company's franchise  so  as to al-  low.that company the right to use the  city streets for twenty years  as an encouragement for the  company to build  a power plant at Boundary Falls, were  discussed.   The waterworks bylaw was  carefully  considered   from   all   points  and   there  was a disposition shown by   ,  some  of the  aldermen   to opoose  the  Trovidence creek extension   and avoid  an expenditure of some $9,000 and to '  confine the el forts of the  waterworks  department   to    perfecting   the   Lind      7  creek system.  The advocates of the Providence  creek scheme pointed out that but  little more water could be secured from  Lind creek and that even if every drop  was saved it would be only a "matter of  time when some other source would  have .0 be tapped. It was again  pointed out by the mayor and others;  in favor of the proposed system-ithatiVT.  the city was in danger from a shortage, t- 7  of -water" this/summer -and that ,vit_ a''���''"' ���  supply from both ends of thetownan  ideal system'-*would be placed atthe  service of the; public. After some  further d'scussion a motion was passed  tothe effect that the Lind creek system be improved so as to avoid any  waste from that source, and Alderman  Mathison asked leave to introduce a  bylaw to go on with the Providence  creek extensions. This was granter.  and the bylaw passed its first and  second readings.  It provides for raising $9,000 by the  sale of debentures to be used in con-:  structing a reservoir on Providence  creek and for the extension of the  water mains north to connect \\ ith the  reservoir. After the bylaw has passed  its third   reading at  the  next council.  'meeting-ir^il!~E-~^iTbmTtT-(rTo  the  people for their ratification.  THE  POWKK  .'..ANT.  The proposition of the Greenwood  Electric company to build a power  plant at Boundary Falls, providing the  city would give the co npany a twenty-  year franchise to use the streets as at  present, was again considered. E.G.  Warren, manager for the company,  and his solicitor, A. M. Whiteside,  were present and discussed the question with the members of the council.  The company, through its solicitor,  had prepared a bylaw and Mr. Whiteside read it to the council. The context of the bill closely followed the  lines of the company's ietter read be��  fore the council and published in the  Times last week. It was to the effect  that thecompany offered to build withiu  eight months from the passing of the  bylaw a power plant at Boundary  Kails for the purpose of supplying  electric light at the following rates:  " For incandescent lamps of 16 power,  SI.50 per light per month for all-night  lights; 51.25 per light per.mon'h for  shops, business houses and offices,  where light is used till 11 o'clock, p.  m.; S1.00 per light per month for public dining rooms ; 65 cents per light  per month for private houses and bedrooms. For street arc lights of nominal 2,000 ca.idk* power, 510 per light  per month ; said street an: lights to be  kept lighted from dusk to dawn. :_ud  all arc lamps: required by the .'city to be  supplied and owneu by the company.  Thirty-two candle power street lamps  at Si.90 per month."  CO UNO 11,  OUJKCTS.  After the above rates had been read  the council made  some  objection that  Continued on page three. BOUNDARY   C&EE7K   TIMB&  HIGH GRADE MINES  A Review of the Greenwood  Properties.  PROSPECTS   ARE BRIGHT  The Future Never  Promised  Better  Things-New   Work   Starting-  More Capital  Needed-  Development is progressing rapidly  at the I rovidence mine. Mr. Dermody  is back again after a few days' holidays, and is now blocking out ore reserves. A visit to the Provideuce mine  will illustrate what can be done with a  comparatively small vein of high grade  ore. It is safe in estimating- that  hundreds ot thousands of dollars worth  of ore are blocked out in the mine and  and this is only done by continuous  and deep development.  The Skylark mine, close to Greenwood, is another sample of continuous  work, it being the leader in Skyl.rk  camp, and is .paving the way for the  many other high grade claims surrounding it, north, south, east and  west. Something has been said o:. the  improvements in equipment and mining, but it cannot be properly appreciated without seeing it with one's  own eyes. The mine is so easy to get  to1���good wagon road, and when j-ou  get there ijWm. Rowe, , the affable  superintendent will do the rest. The  Skylark is now in   its  best and largest  ��� bodies  of   ore   yet   discovered  in   the  . mine.  The Crescent mine in Skylark camp,  and due north of the Skylark mine, a  fine mining property, but not developed much below the grass roots, is  still idle. The shafl is down about  130 fi:et and drifts have been run due  north and south at this level', exposing  good ore. The Chicago end of the  management will be here soon when it  is. to be hoped that work will begin  again.  PRXSTON   SHIPPING.  ��� The; Preston mine, adjoining the  Crescent and on a parallel vein, is  making a good record. The management is now getting ready to ship the  ore taken out in development. This  ore will be shipped just as it comes out  of the mine.   No sorting.  Seven' men are working on the  Prince Henry in Sky'ark camp, and  lying west of the Skylark and Cr.:scent  mines. Much improvement has taken  place in the ore in the shaft in the last  two weeks. Water has bothered a good  deal, but now that the snow has altogether disappeared the water is lessening. Some very high grade ore is  being taken out in sinking, which can  be seen by taking a jaunt up the hill to  the mine.  ��� The EPU  and Gold  Finch mines,  ���under the-management-of-Wm.TMad--  den, are only doing development work  by tunnels to strike the two parallel  veins of each mine at depth. It will  take some time yet to accomplish this,  but time is no object to the owners as  they are after depth.  BARBARA   STARTING   WORK  The Barbara has been idle for a long  time but now a company has been incorporated with plenty of capital in  the treasury for all equipment and development, and work will be started in  the near future. The Barbara is right  in town. Good people living on the  east side of the claim, it, being part of  the Greenwood townsite, but not near  enough to the workings either to hurt  the mine or to be hurt by the mine.  The ore is different from most ot the  high grade ores of this camp, running  high ih lead, good iu sliver and lair  in gold, and carrying much concentrating ore in a strong quartz vein, a  very easy one to mine and concentrate  The  Elkhorn   mine   in    Providence  camp and just north of  ihe city limits,  is busy  getting the   shaft down to the  300 foot level.    Six   men   are  working j  night and   day.    The shaft is now in a j  granetic|rock.;having*pierced the tureen- j  stone,* or upper   formation,   where   al j  the displacements  of  the   veins occur,  and no further difficulty  is anticipated  with faults.    It is only  a case now of  crosscutting to get   the vein, and then  ��   keep your eye on the  Elkhorn, because  she  is,   like   all   the  other   developed  high grade mines of the  camp, a sure  thing against faulting.  The Gold Bug is still on the chase  for gold. The tunnel is getting into  the hill and is now in the vein produc  ing formation, having penetrated the  big grano-diorite dike, where nothing  lives but hard work and water, but on  either sides mineral can  be  looked for  either on the contact dr near  t.  STRATHMORE  AND   HEt,EN.  The Strathmore is making a. big  shipment of high grade and seconds,  and the mine looks good for the.future,  as it is the intention to develop further and block out oref Much has  beeu said about the Helen, but there is  this still to be said���that if the shaft  were sunk in the Helen to a depth.of  SOO feet or deepei, she will surprise  some of the old wise ones. All indications as depth is attained point to deep  ore bodies.  Th**. Bay mine is the only altogether  ifold mine in the camp. Here we have  ore in carload lots going $120 gold to  the t 'ii and a little silver. The quartz  gan'gue of the vein is a white granular  (stigiir) qtiartz, lots of iron pyrites and  a typical California and Eastern Oregon gold vein in a grano-diorite formation. Fourteen inches of clean ore  is now shown in the shaft; with visibte  gold through it. The Bay is in Skylark camp and close to the Skylark  mine.  The Tip-Top, adjoining the Mavis  on the south, shows up well in the  shallow shaft. The ore here is more  massive than the Bay or Mavis. Heavy  iron and copper sulphides in the same  character of quartz. A promising  property.  CAPITA-, -JEBDicr*.  And when one walks or rides over all  the ground lying between all the  above mentioned mines that are certainly making records, he wonders  why many more properties are not  working. Why? We want money.  We have shown our faith in working  the mines we are developing and for a  small town we are certainly risking  our all. When you see men putting  up half of their earnings every month  for. assessments on development, it  goes to show not only faith but enterprise that is being daily rewarded. In  what way ? If not in dividends now,  in opening up the mines and being  rewarded by the great improvement in  ihe ores in development. Let some of  our readers, after reading the above,  make a systematic round of inspection  and see for themselves.  A BENEFIT CONCERT  Large Audience and Good  Program.  FOREMAN   FAREWELLED!

It   is   doubtful   if   Greenwood  ever witnessed a more  successful  concert tban that held Thursday  night in aid of W. A.  Nicholson  under the auspices of the Miner's  Union.    The people  of  the  city  and vicinity  responded  liberally  to the appeal for help for the" unfortunate miner and the Auditorium was filled to its utmost capacity.      The   program   was   also  worthy of the occasion and those  who freely rendered  their  talent  are  worthy  of  praise   from   all  concerned.    Those who took part  were   residents    of   Greenwood,  Mother Lode  and Phoenix   and  to those coming from the latter  place is due much credit  for the  success   of    the    entertainment.  Messrs. Lewis and James created  much|merriment  with their sketches  and   amusing   allusions, to  local   professional   and   business  men.      Their    Irish   songs   and  dances    were    greatly    enjoyed  especially  by  the gallery.    The  Phoenix     quartette,      including  Charles Flood, Robert Thompson  John   Vivian   and Harry James  rendered  several   selections  that  won   for  them   a  leading   place  among   the  .entertainers.    They  combined  a  vocal   talent with a  degree   of   stage   presence   that  placed them in a  class by  themselves, 7 7 .       V  Among local solists Mrs. Dr.  Oppenheimer rendered a selection  in a  graceful   and pleasing  V-EflBB  J. P. FORSTELL  PROP  4B_B0  manner and coming after the  orchestra's overture, formed a  suitable introduction to the vocal  oart of the program.  The \ Misses Henwood with  their sweet voices charmed the  audience with "I've Got* My Eyes  on You" and they were the first  to win a recall to which tbey responded with an equally popular  number. The banjo solo of Mr.  Hopkin's was also well received  atTd^liF^aT^blige^yt^YetMer  second selection. Mrs. Sidney  Oliver and Mrs. W. M. Frith  rendered a duet which was much  enjoyed and Mrs. Oliver later  rendered "Sing Me to Sleep"  which was perhaps her best  selection.  The first and second parts of  the program were opened by  Jellum's orchestra, a newly organized addition to Greenwood's  musical circles. This enterprise  should be encouraged and with  careful practice it should become  the leading one in the Boundary.  Others taking part were J. Frost  aud J. Hen wood who rendered  tenor solos; John Finley, Jr.,  cornet solo; Sidney Oliver, bass  solo. Miss Osier, recitation, W.  Ludwig, Irish specialty and Miss  Belden, cello obligato. G. R.  Naden occupied the chair."  Fred Hazelwood, president of  the Miner's Union, on behalf of  Mr. Nicholson and the union,  thanked the large audience for  their kindness and liberality. He  stated that over SI,000 had been  realized from the concert, all of  which would be presented to Mr.  Nicholson who would return to  his home in the Maritime provinces to be cared for by his parents.  A fter the close of the program  the hall was cleared and a large  number stayed to enjoy a dance  to music provided by orchestra.  Mr. Carwile Presented With Address  and Fine Jewelry*  J. M. Carwile, who for the past four  moiiifes has r��ien foreman at the Dominion smelter, left recently for Salt  Lake city, where hcwUlprobably make  his home, in future, Before leaving,  his many "friends at Boundary Falls  held a dance in Ryan's hall in his  honor and in the course of* the evening  presented Mr. Carwile with a handsome gold chain and locket as a testimonial of the esteem in which he was  held, accompanied by an address,  which was read by Grey Pond. The  addresa read:  7, THE  ADDRESS.  Mr. J. M.

The 6.^ cent rate  for houses, was...especial]., obnoxious,  and the business rate of. $1.25 per month  also met with opposition.. Mr. Warren  pointed ont' that these rates were the  same as tliose'provided for in the  original franchise and that as circumstances , permitted -..these . had t been  lowered until atthe present time only  in isolated cases, nere they still'  charged.. Thecdun.ci), however, showed'  a disposition to demand lower rates  rates and after some consideration Mr.  Warren agreed to lower the rate to  $1.35 per month for lo-candle power  incandescent all night lights; $1.10  per month for shops, business houses  and offices, and 50 cents for houses and  bedrooms. This met with favor and  the bylaw passed its first and second  readings and will be read a third cime  at the next meeting, after which it  will be submitted to the pepple.  THE CHICKKN BYUW,  Amid much amusement his worship  the mayor introduced and. read his  chicken Bylaw. It was a new departure forthe city fathers to legislate in  regard to the; feathered flock. They  felt quite competent to deal with power  plants, waterworks systems, fire  alarms and even dbg taxes, but when  chickens and.like live stock demanded  their attention they ,were CT.de_ttly"not  "from the country" but thoroughly city  bred, and it had been found necessary  to apply to such rural communities as  Grand Forks and arid Nelson for in-  iormation as to how to deal with the  iillusive bipeds.  " The bylaw was read once���twice and  the third and last call will come at  some future meeting-. It provides a  penalty of 25 cents per head���dead or  alive���for every chicken, or any of its  relations, captured abroad and landed  in the city pound, and ten 'cents per  day���if still alive���for every day it  remains in the cii-tot-v of the city,  i The me'tubers of the council present  were Mayor Naden, Aldermen Bunting  '   -    ���;.-:-   '-4 ;   >i ';".���'������     - - '-���';���!   ..-���  Mathison, McRa'e, Wood arid Nelson'  J.

P. R. aad  it is not on" freight alone that  towns served by,both theC. P. R.  and Great Northern enjoy advantages. ;. The passenger rat^s  ftom towns served by the two  roads to other'towns equally fortunate are the same while the  rates from the same towns to  others served by the C. P. R.  only are much higher, proportionately, and in some cases are  actually higher for shorter distances. For instance, the single  fare from Rossland to Midway  over either the G. C. R. or Great  Northern is S4.50; while the fare  from Rossland to Greenwood,  where no competition exists is  $4.90.. In,o.ther words it costs  forty cents more to go to Rossland from Greenwood than it  does from Mid way,....This may  be news to many Times readers  and it may be well to bear in  mind that when in Rossland  money can be saved by buying a  ticket to Midway and getting off  at Greenwood. 7  The question that concerns the  people of Greenwood, is how can  this be remedied. It is just possible that complaint to to the  railway commission would have  the desired effect but it is rather  too small a matter to trouble  that body with. It is a condition,  however, tb*t could be made use  PROSPEROUS CANADA.  The 'announcement from Ottawa  that the revenue from customs during-  the current fiscal year ending the 30th  of June will be $44,000,000 is a striking1  proof of the progress of the country.  Ten years ag-o it was not quite half  .that amount. The attempt is sometimes made to mislead . public opinion  into believing- that the increase -iii  revenue- from.- customs duties is equivalent to increased taxation. The fact  is, however, that when the revenue  from that source was in the neighborhood of $20-000,000 the rate of taxation  was higher than it is now. The citizen  who ourchases, say, *-SS00 worth of  dutiable g-oods pays less "in taxation'to.  the government in 1906 than he did in  1896. What has happene<1 is that owing  to the prosperity and progress of the  country a greater quantity of dutiable  goods is purchased. ..

Ten years ago  it was S239,000,. 00.. From Washington  it is announced that the total trade of  the United State's"for the same period  will be three billion dollars. United  States commerce, then, is six times  greater than than .that of Canada.  But their population is thirteen times  greater, so that our trade per head is  more than twice as great as that of the  United States. This is a very notable  fact. ���'  A feature of our finance which should  not be lost sight of i.s that our national  debt has only been increased by about  two million dollars ri the last' ten  years, while in th��_ preceding- decade it  had grown by 535.000,000. In 1896 it  wo ild. have required more than seven  years' revenue to equal the national  debt. In 1906 about three and a half  years" revenue will equal it. The  financial outlook of the Dominion is  rosy, indeed, and there"can be. no  doubt that, much of its progress is due  to the fact that it is a cheap country to  live in. To maintain that position is  the simple task to which statesmen  must steadily address themselves.���  Toronto Globe.  spelling- of, the English language.

A11 stables, yards or sheds used for the accommodation of horses or mules should be regularly aud frequently cleansed and disinfected  iu tin* manner described below.  3. Afier cleansiny- Mie premises thorouirbly.  aud burnin.*. all debris, the interior should be  well yoneovei- with hot steam, orboiliuir water,  adding o> ihe latter at least one<|iiarl ol crude  carbolic acid to each live gallons after which  the entire surface should be thickly coated  with a thick solution of fresh lime wash, to  which crude carbolic acid has beeu added in  the above mentioned proportion.  Outbuildings, fences and lyinj*- posts with  which infected animal- have been in contact  should also, when possible, be thoroughly  treated in a similar manner.  All ordinary harness aud stable utensils,  which have been in contact with infected animals or infected premises, should be thoroughly  soaked iii a hot solution of crude carbolic acid  of a str.north of one part to twenty.  Materials which might be injured by the  above tre.itmeitt such as valuable harness,  robes, cushions, etc:, which have been in contact with iufecti.n should be placed in an- air  tiirht room and fumigated with Formaldehyde,  after which they should be thoroughly cleaned.  4. lu stables where outbreaks have- occurred  or where diseased animals have, inadvertently  or otherwise, been stabled, even temporarily,  the cleansing aud disinfection should be especially thorough and hi such cases it Is safest to  remove and burn feed boxes and mangers when  of wood; iron articles can be rendered harmless  by passing them through lire or by immersing  them for some time in boiling water. All litter  from suspected animals should be burned or  carefully f-need until used.  5. Farmers and others should, whenever possible, avoid admitting ntrange horses or mules  to the premises occupied by their own animals  espBcially of the same species. It is a good plan  to reserve an isolated building for outside  horses or mules, but where this is impossible  thev may be .accommodated in cow stables,  cattle not being subject to glanders infection.  Such horses aiid mules should be watered from  special pails, which, together with all other  stable, utensils used 011 or about theni, should  :be carefully cleansed and disinfected before  beiiiif used for other tuiima's. Stalls occupied  v>y strange horses or mules should be well  cleansed and disinfected and, if. at all possible,  left unoccupied for some time. .  (7 When new horses or' mules are purchased  in or from-districts where glanders exists, they  should, unless carefully tested with Mallein  prior to purchase, be .stabled' apart aud closely  watched for some time before being brought in  contact with', other animals of the equine  species. .  ���_-.7  .  7. Tt must be borne in mind that while nasal  discharge, or ulceration, enlarged glands, the  presence of farcy"buds, unaccountable swelling  of the limbs and general unthriftiuess often  characterize cases of Glanders, the disease  exists in many animals- without, for the time  being, any. external manifestation whatever,  the. onlymeans-of-detectiou in such cases being  the Mallein test, and.that these occult or latent  cases are iu some respects the most dangerous  because unsuspected, Our experience shows  that it is possible for animals of this class to  convey infection to others without themselves  developing acute symptoms.

'■$'■■        Management.
While no Hard and fast rules can be
laid doTra for the financing or develop*
ment oi a, mine, there is a common
danger .point, that, paradoxical as it
mttj seam.is reached from t-w-^totally
different dircction6. One ifi a cornbi-
uatiou. .of lack of money -and bad
o_anaffen.ent. ■ The other is where an
abunaapce of money with indifferent
management become* an equaKmenace
to the- aucces. of the property1." Gen-
eralizatiou- are not always convincing,
c\tu though they may be deduced
from a Ion*?- obserration of-teoncre*"e
ia_tanc_s. To illustrate this.,*' I will
detail the experience of one very
wealthy company Which for a number
of year» carried on an extensive scheme
of development and equipment that
mut ' have cost, approximately, a
quarter of a million dollars,
The manager was a gentleman of
ability, integrity and some experience,
but who did not hig-hly esteem money,
per se, and waa unable to site up the
proposition apparently from an economic point of view. .He drove long-
tunnels, aunk shafts and made'surface
improvement* without regard to their
cost, and seemed perfectly satisfied for
a number of yearB to make his operations an object leason of model development. • This he did in' so far as the
work of timbering- and driving,'and
the installation of machinery, went;
but in the respect that the work done
had for ita object the production of returns for the money.investei, he failed.
The most elaborate plans for future
development were outlined, and in
some instances ore bodies were opened,
taisas, (.topes and levels run through
them;. but bo "effort was made to
utilite. them. Elaborate testing was
done for the purpose of determining
a nuitable treatment process, so that
theyea-ly mistake made by the management in building a mill nut adapted
to the ore. and which was afterwards
dismantled, need not be repeated. But
apparently the conflicting results of
the testa 'secured did not furnish the
manager conclusive evidence as to the
kind of mill needed, with the result
that the property is still far short(6f a
development that has an .-adequate
economic value for the amount of
money .expended, although approximately J700,o000 worth of ore Iras been
put in sight.
The lesson of this is if he had been
supplied: with less moneys carte
blanche, his plans for dead work would
have been_ess elaborate, and __e might
have made a .greater effort to utilize
some of the ore 'reserves encountered,
and also have endeavored to make a
record for production, with a start
towards dividends, instead of attempting to see how much work could be
done tijierely to explore over SOO acres
of mineral territory iu a manner that
was little better thau mere prospecting.
Some of the eastern men who put up
this money were quite satisfied that if
aU of the members of the syndicate
owning the property had been equally"
willing to continue on this elaborate
scale, the property wouM become a
bonanza. But they were mistaken in
their calculations, as to do this the
amount of money expended would have
made at least an approximate return to
the original investors. And it ishaidly
fair to suppose that simply as a. business proposition, irrespective of the
amount of money involved, shrewd
business tn< n would be willing to continue to pay out money without seeing
any prospect of an adequate return.
•The -chief mistake made in the de-
Telopment of this property was that it
waa developed entirely along.sentimental lines. That is to say, the confidence which the directorate reposed
in their manager was born chiefly of a
sentimental regard for him as a man,
and their knowledge of the fact that
he was thoroughly honest.
He showed good faith, tooyby put-
tiag in some money himself to back
his judgment. But if these men had
been more cold-blooded and critical,
the moaey would have been expended
to better advantage, or the development would , heve been stopped long
before so large an amount had been
ased without an  adequate  showing or
In other cases;^ notably in Ciip.ie
Creek aad Leadviile, where properties
were opened by the original discoverers
in such a way as to afford excellent
promise of becoming bonanza producers with development, capital has beeu
brought in and expended with equal
recklessness, and perhaps far less
honesty, simply because the mines
produced very largely and in some
cases actually created dividends in
spite efjextravacant management.
Of course, only very rich minea can
stand such a total disregard of business principles for a limited time, and
unless :i change is made must, come to
grief and be recorded as failures,where
success is due.    ,
So ma,nv tlings are embraced under
the head of ."good management" that
it ia not easy to clearly include them
all in the brief limits of an article of
this kind. But in a general way the
term mj.v be said to cover good practical mining and business judgment.
This makes it possible for the manager
possessing these traits to secure efficient foremen, and carefully watch the
progress of development, so that with
money he may, in a reasonable time,
create a continuously profitable pro
ducing proprrty.
It goes without saying that such a
man will not undertake tp expend a
considerable sum upon a property thit
does uot justify the expenditure, if, in
addition to practical mining experience, he has some technical knowledge
and business training. Tf he is merely
a dreamer who is ready to "hope all
things and believe all things" because
of a few good assays and fine surface
croppings, he may have to endure all
things in the way of disappointment
and failure. But the redeeming feature of any mining investment, where
the original basis of the proposition is
one of merit, is its ability to sustain
and recover from greater loss in a
s'lorter time than almost any other industry, for the reason that if payable
ore is in the property it can be got, if
persistence, money and good judgment
are used, When it is. obtained it be-
becomes a source of revenue that does
not depend upon the .ontingeucy of
competitors in a similar line, nor the
finding of a market for its output, as is
the case with ordinary industrial enterprises.
7 1 have in mind another company
which has been carefully and economically developed with an expenditure of
possibly one-half of the amoun t used
in the first named property, covering
a period of ten years. This has been
managed iu a most systematic and
and thoroughly businesslike manner,
and produced probably two-thirds of
the amount expended in order to avoid
sacrificing the stock.
This was a mistake from an _cono-
mic point of view, for the reason that
owing to the large amount of money
necessary to open Ihis property thor-
oughly,{it would have really been better
to sell more stock and fallow the ore
exposed to remain in ; the mine. Because there is a greater value, relatively, to the ore iu the stopes, in the
eyes of the investor, thau there is in
the examination I of the settlement
sheets of the smelter for the same ore.
If '.his company had left the ore in the
mine and sold stock on the strength of
the reserves, it could have taken the
money so received and opened up immense new ore bodies, which by a long
and painful struggle were finally un
covered within a comparatively short
distance of where work was stopped
several years ago, because of lack of
money, and for tht reason that the
plan of development was at that time
considered inadequate to its scope. As
acbhsequ-hcea'hew shaff was'sunkr a
a new shaft house built  and  hoisting
riant and other machinery installed.
* ■       •    0
This not only involved a much larger
outlay than the comparatively small
amount then required to penetrate the
ore bodies only recently uncovered,
but it has involved the delay of several
years' time, The outcome, of course,
of this development, will be an immensely valuable property. If this
manager had at any time within the
past eight or ten years $50,000 at one
time at his command, he would have
been able to repay in all probability
the entire capital stock of his company
in divideuds within four or five years
from the time he received it. But in
spite of delay, in spite of the lack of
money, his enterprise is a triumph of
busiaess management and good mining practice, and shows the importance
of sticking to a mining investment
even under discouraging circumstances ; because a good mine is a lifetime
proposition, and one such will reward
its owners abundantly for a hundred
Without mentioning any names I
vill say that I know several large
properties that have, within the past
ten or fifteen years, returned in dividends the entire original capitalization, and are still producing at a rate
that promises to yield from 50 to 100
per cent more within the same time.
In some of them, notwithstanding
that immense .urns have been produced, many mistakes have been mi ade.
Yet the ability to see and correct them,
involving in some cases a complete
change of managers, has kept them in
the list of dividend payers, and created
a standard value for mining investments that no  money  panics or politi-

Good Times Ahead for Miners and
F. F. Ketchum of Beaverdell is
Bpsnding a few days in Greenwood on
business as well as pleasure. He believes this city has a good future and
expects to see it grow steadily larger
and more prosperous. Speaking of
Beaverdell he expressed the belief that
when the Midway and Vernon railway
is finally completed "the town would
bec.omc.the leading one between Rock
Creek and Kelowna. ' We are in the
center of a large mining district that
has prSVen to be rich and easily worked
and with adequate transportation facilities great development will certainly
follow," said Mr. Ketchum. "The
mines'►are the chief source of our
wealth .and they are not only good b.ut
they are numerous. Prospecting and
development work is being continually
prosecuted and we only need arailway to
start many of them making sliij ments.
As it is, he continued, the Rambler
and the Sally have proven that shipments can be made profitable under
present conditions." Speaking of the
Washington-Idaho, Mr. Ketchum said
he believed it would prove a property
of great value when work has been extended to deeper levels. Development
work on this mine is going on steadily.
