He was a  capable and popular adminiatra-  tor of a very1 important department.' Mr. Prefontaine spared  no efforts ' in acquiring an intimate knowledge of all the details connected with marine and  fisheries and he was anxious to  so conduct the affairs of the department in a {manner best cal*  culated to increase Canadian  shipping1 and develop the wonderful fishery resources of the  country. Mr. Prefontaine represented one of the Montreal districts in parliament. ' _j   His successor should be a  Western man, land that man  Hon. Senator Templeman.  British Columbia has been wonderfully patient in the matter of  full cabinet representation. This  province is entitled to a portfolio  It was promised 7a portfolio  and nine years should have been  ample time to make good that  promise. The patience shown  by the province was no less  marked than that shown by  Senator Templeman. He has  surely served Jong enough in the  anomalous position of minister  without a department and to dis.  regard his claims at the present  time would be slighting him and  slighting the West.  For British Columbia is not  the only part interested in this  matter. If a government is to  remain strong it must realize  that the West has become an  important factor in this Bo-  minion. Why the provinces of  Ontario and Quebec should each  have five cabinet ministers,  while the four ; provinces west of  Lake Supeiior are given only  one minister with a portfolio and  one without cannot be explained,  to the satisfaction of the people  of the West.  We trust that this view will  appeal to Sir Wilfrid Laurier  and in the interests of the Liberal party and more important  still, in the interests of the great  and growing West, he will no  longer disregard Senator Tem-  pleman's strong claims for a  portfolio.  "A year of plenty" was 1905, so far  as the Boundary was concerned. It  was also a year pf substantial development from a mining point. of view.  The total tonnage has not yet reached  the million-ton mark. Those interested in the coining development of the  Boundary fondly anticipated that the  shipments would reach this figure in  1903, but stfikes and other unforseen  eirdui_i_t$n����6 combined to keep the  tonaagq down.' For several weeks the  various mines have been shipping a  total tonnage largely in excess of the  million-ton basis, but early in the year  the disastrous failure of Munro __  Munro and consequent closing down of  the properties of the Montreal and  Boston Copper company, made the  million-ton mark for 1905 > an impoa<-  Bibi-ity. However, two weeks more  would have done the trick. Those interested in the Montreal and Boston  worked hard to save the properties of  the company. They succeeded in the  reorganisation ol, a new company under the name of the Dominicsv Copper  company. Behind this company ia  plenty of capital and men who" have  been eminently successful in the copper world. . After considerable delay!  they at last succeeded in getting their  mines into such shape as would justify  the blowing in of one furnace.' This  was done early, in November with the  result that the weekly" tonnage for the  Boundarjr sopn passed the 20,000 tons.'  However the aggregate for,the year!  will be about 950,000 tons, br50,000 ton*'  eho_;f $ the .ggg��.-��hat has~been the  modest, ambition 'of "the Boundary. *'���'* '  ��    . THS GRANBY.  ;: Of course the largest contributor to  thia enormouB tonnage' hat been the  Granby mines. The tonnage from  these mines shipped to the 'Granby  smelter will exceed 650,000 tons. In  recent weeks, with the, blowing in of  additional furnaces, the daily shipments have almost reached the -2,500-  ton mark. The remarkable develop  ment of the Granby mines has been a  revelation to the most experienced  mining men and a credit to Jay P.  Graves, who from, the first pinned his  faith to tht. properties and' stuck to  them uutil today be is one of the  latgeat recipients of .dividends"from  their operation. It is new a little over  eight years ago since the. wri*er first  met Jfty_P.^Gr^es^^After an unsuccessful bout with Spokane reirestafe  he came to the Boundary to' see if he  could not recoup his fortunes from the  development of the Knob Hill and  Old Ironsides mineral claims, in what  was then known as Greenwood camp.  There was very little to attract the investor. There was, of course, the  "open cut"; ��n the Knob Hill. This  showed.that there was mineral, but the  open cuts of those days would be lost  in the glory holes of the present. However Graves had faith in the property  and investors had faith in Graves. He  went to work and each year saw the  properties nearer the shipping stage.  Additional plant was added, a smelter  was erected.at Grand Forks, theCo-  lumbia.and Western railway was built,  and, finally, in 1900 the first shipment  was made to the company's smelter.  The story of the remarkable progress  made at the mines is reflected by the  following brief history of the smelter  for which we are indebted to the Grand  Forks Gaxette:  July, 1900���First ore received.

The following estimates of the metal  Values of the ore treated for 1905 may  accepted a_ correct:  Copper, 17,483,732 pounds; silver,  291,197-ounces; gold, 4,394 ounces.  fi. comparative statement of the  months of February and October will  show the great increase in the value of  the output since the additional furnaces have been pltced in commission.  February, 1905���Copper, 1,180,996,  pounds; silver, 19,794 ounces; gold,  3,350 ounces. ���, :* v '  ' - October -Copper, 1,854.698- pounds;  silver, 29,197 ounces; gold, .4,394 oz.  Two dividends hav* been declared by  the company. The first in December,  iWpj-moufltitig to $133,603, and the  second December 1st, 1905, (payable  January 15th, 1906) at the rate of 3  per cent, and amounting to tbe sum of  $405,000.  In this brief review no attempt' is  made to "��� describe the various, steps  which' have been taken to bring the  mines of the Boundary to their present  prosperous condition. The Granby  company today is the largest shipper  of copper ore in the Dominion of  Canada, its smelter produces more  copper and if the. recent dividend paid  is an earnest of future intention, then  it is easily the largest dividend-payer.  THE B. C. COPPER.  Next to the Granby B. C. Copper  company has been the largest shipper  in the Boundary. Its tonnage"-. this  year has been about the same as last.  vi*.~" 175,000 "tons~-The"H.-C.���Copper  has been going a slower pace than the  Granby, but towards the end of 1905 it  made a spurt that means much for  1906. As announced in the Boundary  Creek Times, the company's directors  about December 1st decided to enlarge  its smelting plant by the installation  of three additional furnaces, each with  a smelting capacity of five or six  hundred tons a day. Contracts for the  furnaces were let to the Power and  Mining Machinery company. They  have each a 48 x 240 inch health area  and will be the largest in Canada.  Charging will be done by side dumping cars, hauled by trolley locomotives  and the slag will be hauled away by  electric locomotives of 25 tons capacity  eaeh. Tb< ore bins are to be rebuilt  and made ten-feet higher to increase  their capacity. The auxiliary power  plant to meet the requirements of the  increased smelter capacity will be  added aod the'development of the company's Mother Lode mine will be  pushed to meet the capacity of the  smelter. These improvements cannot be brought about in a short time,  but in the spring of 1906 the B. C.  Copper company will doubtless be  treating at least 1,600 tons daily.  THE DOMINION COPPER.  As already stated, tbe Dominion  Copper company is the substantial result of the efforts made to rehabilitate  tho properties that were knocked out  by the failure of Munro & Munro. It  took time and patience and money to  do this, but finally success crowned tbe  efforts. After getting the mines in  shape to smelt ore, one furnace at the  (Continued on Page 2.)  -_'*  um ��� hjuupw "wy t  ___, -U * 1'i^sMr"  M  ui  BOUNDARY   OREEK   TIMES  A YEAR'S PROGRESS.  .   (Continued-from Page 1.)  company's smelter  at -Boundary Fails  was   blown in and has since been running steadily. Mr. Thomas, the smeller  superintendent   expects   to  blow   in a  'second- furnace shortly, when about  700 tons a day will be treated. It is  the intention of the company to erect a  larg-e: and modern smelting plant in  the near future. -The present;plant'  will be uSed.until, the new; smelter is  ready for. operation. . This company,  has a number of large mines which are  capable of producing a tonnage equal  to the Granby. The big mines are in  Phoenix  on -the  .opposite  side  of the  .hill from tHH^--X_-ranby; and  in1 addition.  the   company- has  mining .properticsJ-additioii  to its .mineral resources it ij_  in Wellington, Siiti.iii.t   and'Deadwood   rici, hi'timber and  agricultural  lands.  ....AnoLber camp which has not had  that attention itsirnportai.ee warrants  is Long Lake camp. It is true that  work' was resumed this fall on the  Jewel group after a season -of idleness, but there are many other properties in the camp which should attract the mining investor  ' ' "': ���" 'OTI-KR   INDUSTRIES. ���  But mining and smelting are not the  only industries ' of the Boundary; district. No! country offers ' greater attractions for the farmer and fruit  grower.. The area of arable land is  comparatively circumscribed, but the  local market is one of the best in the  the province. In the'pursuitof'v.ealthj  the possibilities of' agriculture and  horticulture have* been largely ' overlooked. The Kettle valley in the'vi-  cinityof Grand Forks, in the vicinity  of Midway and Rock' Creek, offers the  greatest "possible inducement to the  s'rhail farmer end fruit grower. During the year an impetus was given to  this industry by th. breaking up of  large farms into smaller fruit farms  which   were   acquired   by    successful  camps.  O..HKK   UIC.   MINUS.'

She .'combined  operation of mine and smelter, by the  same company. With the necessary;  capital, at least halt a dozen additipnal  properties in the Boundary will .become important shippers. This is  notably true of the Denoro mines and  the Emma in Summit camp. The latter shipped about 9,000 tons this pear.  A large gallows frarne is now being  erected at the Emmp. and other improvements made preparatory to increased shipments -during 1906. The  tonnage to the credit o,l the Denor_  miues is about 3,00Q..tous���a tonnage  not at all in keeping with the possibilities of this promising property. It  is "understood, how.ever, that additional  capital has been secured and that during 1906 the output- will be more in  keeping with the importance of the  mine. With the neeessary capital the  Denoro mines could easily be made  one of the big ones of the .Boundary.  The Snowshoe in phoenix camp is another big mine which has been b'ing  idle for two years, pending the settlement of the treatment problem. Two  years appears a long, time to settle this  question, but as the mine is owned by  an English syndicate no further explanation is required.  ���1h_c high grade ones.  ���. .Tbe comprehensive description of  the; high grade mines contiguous to  Greenwood, which was . written fbr the  Times by, W7 H. Jeffery, M. E,- and:  appeared in last week's issue, should  be.read by everyone interested in the  ��� development.of the Boundary district.  .-.-Mr." Jeffery.-has  given   his -time--and  ' technical knowledge to. the development'of these high grade properties  and the fact that a score, of mines are  '"tpday^employing.^menr^andr-ma-ny���of-  them shipping or_, is sufficient justification for the faith which enabled him  to devote his attention to this vary at-  - tractive form of: mining. Greenwood  derived the greatest benefit from the  exploitation of these properties. The  high grade"veins are found in the hills  mmediately Overlooking the city, the  capital invested has been largely local  capital, the men employed are local  men; they live in Greenwood, get their  supp.ies here, and the money received  from ore shipments has been kept at  home, High grade mining has been  largely responsible for the increased  prosperity noticeable in Greeuwood  and not enjoyed by other towns in the  Boandary.  OTH-.K   -AMI'S.  Outside the Boundary district proper,  but still tributary to Greenwood, the  development has not been as rapid as  was reasonably looked for. The West  Fork district, than which, .there is no  more promising mining district.in the  province, early in -��� the year gave  promise of a development commensurate with the -importan.ee of .the  district. The assurance, of adequate  transportation facilities by the construction ot the Midway and Vernon  railway encouraged the mine owners  to renewed efforts: The Sally shipped  several carloads of hitrh grade ore,  considerable work. Was done on the  Rambler and Duncan, and on the Enterprise and S R in Boomerang camp.  For some unknown reason the Carmi  has been idle during the year, although  it has its own concentrator on the  ground. Assurances are given, however, that work on this property is to  De renewed early the coming year. A  number of owners of high grade mines  of the West Fork are going to make  shipments during the   winter   months,  but the. delay in the construction of  the. Midway and Vernon will necessarily retard mining development in  that district. With a railway it would  soon/become one -of the-7iuvp6i'taiit  inining camps of the province.  The north .Karl, camp, also handicapped by lack of transportation facilities, is coming" to ��� the f rent by reason of the promising .character of its  ore bodies.

The  Kettle Valley lines have a'atirvey party  in the field locating a line up the  North Fork and it is hoped that this  district will soon secure a.railway.    In  ���i ���  ���.���:'���  Pacigc railway and/for three months  a legislative..battle was waged at Ottawa such as was never before witnessed  in the federal capital. The V., V. &  E. finally triumphed and immediately  contracts were awarded for the construction of the line as far west as  Keremeos. Although handicapped by  lack1 of -labor, the contractors'���have  made remarkable progress. .Further  delay was occasioned by the obstructive tactics..of ti.e. C..P- R. in connection witb* land claimed by the company and which had to-be -crossed by  the V.-,'--.V.- &.'

Once  the irrigation problem is solved the  the Kettle,River valley should become  one of the important farn.ing' centers!  of the province. It is understood that  a syndicate is now acquiring lands in  the Kettle valley between Midway and  and Rock Creek with a view sf irrigating the same and subdividing into  small fruit farms. The scheme is  bound to prove successful and the settlement of these lands will be an important factor m the prosperity of the  Boundai jr  The most remarkable development  from an agricultural point of view has  been in connection with ihe plateaus  on the higher levels.

He was only  20 years of age. He came from the  old home in Vernon about two months  ago and joined his brother L. Y Bit"  nie in Phoenix'; Much sympathy, is  expressed for Messrs. L. Y. and E. R.  Birnie, and his sister, Mrs. Forbes M.  Kerby. all of whom are well known in  the district.  MUs Carrie Evans, a sister of Geo.  Evans, well known' in Greenwood,  died on Mondav last.

BARTERING THE PROVINCE  Richard McBride, premier of  British Columbia, has returned  from a visit to the East. He  brought a railway policy back  with him. Since some of his  colleagues don't know -v. hat the  policy is, the premier, with that  punctilious regard for the eternal  fitness of things for which he is  noted, has bridled his tongue and  the dear public must wait until  Messrs.!Cotton, Tatlow, et al are  clubbed into accepting this brand  new policy. It is not at all  necssary tol consult ', the Hon:  Robert Green ; so far : as Bob is  concerned anything Dick says  goes. Mr. McBride during his  visit East saw, according to his  own statement, the following  railway magnates: Sir Thomas  Shaugnessy, J. J. Hill, Chas.��� M.Hays, F. M. Morse, W. M.- Mac-  =4.enzie,���and-7Dan._Mann.__ -These  are the men who control the destinies of the Canadian Pacific,  the Great Northern, the Grand  Trunk Pacific and the Canadian  Northern.  The people of British Columbia who have some regard for the  credit of the province and also  for its reputation, were greatly  concerned when a politician of  McBride's calibre left the confines of the province. It has been  hinted for months that Premier  McBride was anxions to dissolve  the legislature and appeal to the  public. There was one important thing lacking���the wherewithal to carry onu a campaign.  Judging from the experiences  of the past the premier is not auy  too particular regarding the  source af supply nor the extent  to which the province is compromised to secure the same.  According tothe premier's ov.-n  statements the situation is alarming. He goes east without a railway policy; he returns with one.  He goes East without his colleagues having any knowledge  of any railway policy to which  his government is committed and  returns with a policy so new that  his colleagues know nothing  about.it and must be consulted  before any announcement is made.  Whence comes this new railway policy? The premier's  mind was a blank on the question  of transportation before going  East, as it generally is on all  questions affecting the best interests of the province. But he  saw Shaughnessy and Hill and  Hays and Morse and Mackenzie  & Mann and he returns with a  railway policy. Who filled the  vacuum, or in other words who  contributed the campaign fund ?  How much of the public land is  to be alienated, to what extent is  the public treasury to be depleted  in order that the McBride government may have $25,000 or  $50,000 to corrupt 'the electorate  of the province ?  As a statesman Premier McBride is a woeful failure; as a  jollier he is without peer in this  or any other province. The  Boundary Creek Times makes  the assertion that the announcement of a railway policy of some  importance and the mysterious-  ness connected therewith is all a  part of that rather clever but  shallow political game which  McBride so dearly loves to play.  The Times makes the further assertion that the railway policy  which McBride has in his inside  pocket will not open up any new  section of the province and will  not be effective in building a  single mile or new railway that  the necessities of transportation  conditions will not 'force the  building thereof, without regard  to any railway policy which the  ,McBr.ide-gov.emment-_ma_Y-_accep_t  from the railway corporation interested.  The Boundary Creek Times  will even go further and state  that the railway policy so sacredly guarded by Premier McBride contains nothing that those  who have been watching events  were not cognizant of before Mr.  McBride went East. It is a policy  in the interests of the Canadian  Pacific railway : It is a policy to  confirm that corporation in an  enormous laud grant in express  violation of the act passed by the  legislature, and it is a. policy to  bonus the Canadian Pacific to  build a railway which it is forced  to build by the enterprise of its  competing road without money  or lands. It is a policy that has  for its object the securing of a  campaign fund ; it is a policy  such as would naturally be expected from Premier McBride and  his fidus achates, the Hon. Robt.  Green.

Japkson of Midway as a sop to  those who demanded an hbnest  administration Of public affairs,!  Mr. Jackson refused to associate  with the gang and the government was forced to do what it  should have done months agoj  Our sympathies go out to the  good peop.e cf Grand Forks.  The gang is still with them. So  far as the Greenwood license district is concerned, there is every  assurance that' it will secure a;  board of commissioners who will  acquit themselves in accordance  with the best traditions of British  law and British justice.  The grip of the gang has at  last been broken. Last week's  issue of the British Columbia Gazette contains the announcement  that the Boundary license district  has been divided into the Grand  Lloyd A. Manley [has gone to  Victoria. He went there td  secure such amendments.; to the  Municipal Clauses act, as will  legalize a similar -method of  gambling licenses as is in vogue  in rural districts and under which  Lloyd A. Manley has been the  chief beneficiary. Lloyd A. Man-  ley's mission is not likely to be  successful. He should carefully  read the announcement in last  week's issue of the British Columbia Gazettes and learn that  public opinion is sufficiently  strong to compel even the McBride government to occasionally  do the right thing.  .:__!'  ^fflffiOTO^  Cr*  e,  ���<r*\  Cr*\  ��_  Cr*  Cr*  CF*  Cr*  Cr*  Cr*  Cr*  Cr*  e_  G��*\  Cr*  Cr*  Cr*  Cr*  Cr*  Cr*  <��_  Cr*  Cr*  ��ieenwool _BarM_ .Stop.   1   For a good refreshing  25  25   ...CENTS  ._ Wm.

The right of way has been purchase^  as, far west as Princeton; a feasible  route has been found up the Tula  meen, np Otter creek, across the'  Coldwater. and from the Coldwater  through -the Hope mountains to the  Coquhalla. * Work has commenced from  the western end at Cloverdale. It is  expected*,thsit, before,:the,.end of 1-906  trains will be running over the V.,"..V.'  & E to Princeton, and in 1907 the en  tire Coast-Kootenay road will be in  operation, ! Thus the desire of British  Columbians generally will br. satisfied  withont the alienation of public lands  or the expenditure of public money to  secure the construction of a railway in  yrhose aid both money and lands were  freely offered a few years ago.  1 Driven by its most formidable competitor, the Canadian Pacific Railway  company had to abandon a policy of  obstruction for one of active construction. "' To save a share of its territory'  in the Similkameen a contract was  awarded for the construction of a rail-  Way from Spence's Bridge on the main  line to Nicola, a distance of 43 miles.  The work is well completed and track-  laying has been commenced. The object of the company is to continue  ' from Nicola valley into the Similkameen. to Pentieton, following up Ina-  kameap ereek to the summit of the  mountain, connecting with its Columbia and Western line at Midway. This  work will he fairly well completed during 1906 and thus will be secured an  alternative short route to the coast.  The transportation development has  not been without its disappointment.  The greatest development in this  province can be secured by the con-  -truction of railways running not east  and wes,tover mountains but north and  south,,following the valleys. A railway built north and^south through the  interioj of l.ritish" Columbia would do  more in developing its natural resources than half a dozen railways run.  ning east and west. .

A review for the year just closing  would not be complete without a brief  reference to our own town. In many  respects Greenwood has enjoyed the  most prosperous year in its history. It  is true that during railway construction days money was freer and Greenwood enjoyed all the concomitants of  a genuine boom. But a boom cannot  last and the aftermath is always a  trying time for thoso who are identified  with a town. It took Greenwood  several years to recover from the results of that construction boom. The  development of the mines, the increased smelting facilities, the operation of high grade mines contiguous  to the city, the retirement of heavy  liabilities and the permanent character  of the mining industry, all combined  to put the city on a more solid basis.  During the year merchants did a  larger and more profitable business,  they were not so heavily burdened with  past liabilities^ money was more free,  customers paid more promptly, and  bright prospects of the future encouraged them. If any. criticism were to  be offered it would be to the effect that  the business men of Greenwood failed  to take advantage of these favorable  conditions and time and again lost opportunities to forward the interests of  the city and incidentally their own interests. During 1906 there should be  more concerted action in promoting  the -interests ��of the city. With the  resources briefly referred to above,  with the bright outlook for the future,  there is no reason why during 1906,  with a proper spirit of local patriotism,  with a united people all filled with an  enthusiastic desire to advance the interest of their city. Greenwood should  not become the best town in the best  district in the Province of British Columbia.  So far as the Boundary Creek Times  is concerned it has had its ups and  downs with other business inhabitants  of Greenwood. The year 1905 has  been one of the most prosperous in its  -history.

' '-������^_-_-_---_--_---i_--_-----_il-_-----__--_----_--_-_--W_-8_--_---_------��  SUNDAY OBSERVANCE.  The following communication by the  ��Rev. H. S. Akehurst appeared in a re-  ycent issue of the Kamloops  Standard,  ���'.It may be of interest, as it pursues a  ��� jline of argument not taken  into consideration .by many of the L,ord's-Day  ������ Alliance people.   There are, of coursej  ... ..'.two sides to every question.   Few will  n:*'jtake the stand that one day of rest in  ������'seven is not a necessity, but' the man-  iiner in which the rest- should be taken  .appears to be the bone of contention,  'We-'of -the west hold that the decision  should be with the person concerned,as  ���..'any parliamentary enactment   might  "-"interfere with'the health and liberty ,of  .the individual.   Many of _ our customs  Yhere'. do   not commehd themselves to  ^Easterners, but it has been found im-  ���ip08_ible to mould Western conditions  Jon'Eastern ideas.   'jFollowing "is Mr..  7Akehurst's letter:'  Dear Sir : There( have been sent to  '/me forms of petitions to the senate and  '.commons of Canada seeking the enactment of-legislation on Sunday observ-  ande,   May I be permitted space in  ~youy^pe-~in^hicir-tcr^xplain7why;=r  jam unable lo.signithese or canvass for  signatures. These petitions must betaken in connection with the enacting,  clauses of the law which the Dominion  ^Lord's Day Alliance is strenuously ad*-.  . vocating. These-., petitions' besides  making illegal the Sunday' indulgence  in many innocent recreations, will de-  ���prive many working people of the'only  opportunity, they now enjoy of fepend-  MAS  TIP  _>��  "WORTH WHILE'  A handy   little  booklet,  justyoff the press���full of _j  'suggestions of  WORTHY   OIF*TS  "It Solves the Problem  send for it���its fre  you   will    certainly  findjt  % Worth" While fy\  i^^^2_as2^ToBiAiR6>  ing a few hours in the healthf 31 open  airo_i--*B��.ountry> aqd so escaping for  a Bf^f-^-Spell the soul-de.adening surroundings of their daily life. This act  will not prevent the .rich from using  their own carriages, boats and other  conveyances, or from employing their  domestic servants on the L,ord's day;  but the, poor, who cannot afford such  possessions, and have few if any opportunities other than Sunday of using  public conveyances for pleasure, will  be debarred from doing so on that dayf-  Must we conclude that hired service is  for the rich a necessity, but for the  pooria desecration of the Sabbath ?" Is  it just to refuse a public concession of  those kinds of recreation to the poor  which the rich have long taken without hesitation ? Above all is it wise to  mnltiply restrictions and requirements  beyond7 what: is essential, when we  know that nien so hemmed in break  the artificial barriers, and in doing so  with a sense of guilt become hardened  and prepared to transgress commandments of divine and eternal obligation  Liet us in all ^lawful, and-expedient,  ways try to ensure to every man his  weekly day of rest, though that may  not in all cases or on all occasions coincide with the Sunday. By all means  lawfullet us try to lead men to'"what  we believe a right observance of that  day. ' But .as Christians we have no  irght to go'^further than St. Paul did  when "one man esteemed one day  above another," while "another  esteemed every day-alike," the apostle  only said, " I.et every man be fully  persuaded in his own mind."  Much of the work of .the Lord's Day  Alliance : is commendable, but their  proposed law in its present form seems  neither advisable nor just, and to sign  their petitions, though, very geneialin  -fbrjji, would signify approval of the  law.

selections were well rendered. The
organisation is a credit to Bandmaster
Hallett and the city, and should be
encouraged in everp possible way by
the people of Greenwood.
Skating is an exceedingly popular
pastime in Greenwood this winter.
The rink is crowded each evening.
Captain Swayne, the popular manager,

A concert and dance was given by
the employes of the B. C. Copper company at the Mother Lode mine Christmas night. -Between two and three
hundred people were present and,
needless to say, had a pleasant time.
The dance broke up at 5 in the morning. The. concert, the dance and the
supper were all free.!
A small house greeted the. Polmatier
Sisters in the Auditorium Friday
evening of last week. The entertainment was -v really good one, and it re

that evening. Financially' the performance was not a success. :>        ■'■

believes to be a very large-body of
copper-gold ore. He has run an open
cut 37 feet across the ore body, and
thinks its width will be fully 60 feet.
The ore, he says, has been traced about
eight hundied feet on the claim. If
the assays are fair and the ore body
proves as large with depth as he claims
it is, there will be a stir. io Central
