E., delivered a  famous speech at a banquet tendered  him by-the citizens of Greenwood. He  stated that the biggest mines on the  continent were around Greenwood,  that here was a place that would  beat Butte, that the ores were self-  fluxing, that this advantage together  with the enormous ore bodies made  Boundary the greatest mining district  in the world. There were many who  scoffed at Mr. Johnson's statements  and a few wiseacres maintained that  he was "talking through his hat."  The Times believing that a gentleman of Mr. Johnson's standing- as a  mining and smelting man knew -what  he was talking about and week after  week published "Gems from Paul  Johnson." For this it was charged  with unduly booming the district.  Time has demonstrated that Mr-  Johnson took an intelligent and far-  seeing view of the possibilities of the  district, He dropped into the office  thia week and a Times representative  turning up the files of the paper asked  him to read a report of his speech.  Mr. Johnson did so.  . "Were you talking through your hat,  Mr. Johnson?"  The genial superintendent laughed  heartily. "Let us see," said he, -"that  was in August last year. There has  been some big changes since then. All  the development goes to prove that my  statements' were well within thc mark.  ."Now aa to the ^biggest mines on the  continent'," continued Mr. Johnson.  "Let us do-some figuring as far as the  Mother Lode is concerned. By thew-ay  have you heard of .the new strike on  the Mother Lcde? * An upraise is being  run to connect the. 300-foot with the  200-foot level. This is' in magnetite  with- chalcopyrite' running from 6 to  7 per cent copper and $4 to $5 in gold.  We have "the same ore in-a 40-foot  wine from the 200-foot. It is different  from the other ore carrying higher  copper values. Now as to figures. We  have one ore body of smelting ore 3S0  'feet long, 300 feet high and 100 feet  wide above the 200-foot level, thia  makes 10,500,000 cubic feet of ore or  nearly 900,000 tons of ore. Between  the -200-foot and 300-foot level there is  a proven ore body 250 feet long, 20 feet  wide and 100 feet high, making at least  50,000 tons of ore. All of this is north  of the shaft. The amount of ore south  of ~the~"shaft~we~bave not determined  ^9*******9*i^p****^*V************��****************it****  ....THIS CUT SHOWS OUR....

Smith  & McRae,  Books, Stationery, Offico Supplies  and Wa41 Paper7        ~~  Phcae V, & N,7 34,  but we are safe in saying there are 1,-  000,000 tons of smelting ore in sight.  By making similar calculations in  reference to^ the Knob Hill and Ironsides and other mines, I think.I was  safe in saying that we have here some  of the biggest mines on the continent.  "I also stated last year that the ores  were self-fluxing and some people  doubted the statement. The Granby  smelter has been treating 300 tons a  day without fluxes of any kind. The  greater portion of the Boundary ores  are blessed with plenty of iron and  lime and are consequently self-fluxing.  Actual smelting has demonstrated the  truth of my Statement. But few people outside of those actively.engaged  in the smelting industry realize this  great advantage. One furnace can  treat at least 50 per cent more self-  fluxing ore than those requiring fluxes  and consequently 50 per cent less fuel  is required. As fuel entails at least 60  per cent of the cost of smelting, the  advantage can be readily, seen. This  is a distinct advantage that Boundary  possesses over Rossland as a mining  distnet."    .  "I could quote further facts to prove  that the statements I made last year  were all within the mark. As time  progresses, when our smelter and other  smelters are running, when'more development work is done in the mines,  I am confident that I made no false  estimates of the possibilities of Boundary district.",  Mr. Johnson also gave some particulars regarding the smelter. Gus  Sunberg, who was head chemist for  the Gugberheimrs in Mexico, has  charge of the laboratory which will be  ready in a few days, all the apparatus  having arrived. Thebig blower is in  place and the men are now busy putting  in a floor for coke and coal. The  Crane company has shipped 3,000 feet  of 8-inch water pipe to carry water  from Copper creek to the smelter. The  Allis company .Jias notified that the  sampling plaufwas shipped on October  1st and that in 14 days all the machinery  for the smelter will be shipped. As  everything is in readiness to receive  it, Mr. Johnson ha6 fixed December  1st as the date when the big smelter  will be blown in. The sampling plant  was shipped first because Mr. Johnson  is anxious to have that in operation as  early" as possible. The sampler is a  large one, having a capacity of 600  tons"daily. ~    ~   **"   **       __  - -  Four cars of ore have been shipped  from the Mother Lode and four more  are ready for shipment. This ore was  shipped to make room for a large  building that will be used for sorting ore. It will also contain a big  crusher with a capacity of 40 tons an  hour.   ������..''���  At the mine preparations'are being  made to receive the 35-drill compressor  which is now en route from the factory  in the east. This will give the mine  45 drills. Mr. Johnson figures that  each drill can break_40 tons evey every  24 hours, and, leaving 10 drills for development work, the 35 drills can break  1,400 tons of shipping ore daily,  From the above it will be seen that  it is only a question of a short time  until the Greenwood smelter is in full  blast. Behind the smelter is the  Mother Lode mine ready to ship it any  quantity of ore, and there arc other  mines, too, ready to ship to the smelter.  BANK OFFICIALS  ance. Greenwood looks like a safe  place to do a banking--business in. I  visited Rossland and Nelson before  and note a remarkable .progress made  ih these cities aiid judging from appearances the growth of Greenwood  has been equally satisfactory. The east  is now taking a lively interest in your  mines. In the past, they dealt principally in stock with results that were  unsatisfactory to the investors, but  now they are getting directly interested in your mines and are well  pleased with their investments. This  offers encouragement for the further  investment of capital and as the country gets developed your town is sure to  grow into a large and permanent city.  I would like to remain longer here, but  so much time is lost in travelling that  my stay at ciich branch must be brief.  I like Greenwood, it has a substantial,  healthy appearance." ...       '  That Greenwood is to be a great  bunsiiiess center has already been announced by prominent ..mining men.  Those who are more intimately associated with the development of the  mineral resources of the district are  unanimously of the opinion that Boundary is going to be a very important  mining district and its chief business  center will be Greenwood. The mining magnates are right, but whether  right or wrong the fact that they hold  those - opinions means much for the  city. But they are not alone in their  views. The prominent financial men  think the same so that Greenwood  possesses the confidence of the two  principal factors in the development of  a mining district and its metropolis���  the men possessing a knowledge of the  wealth of its mineral resources and the  men who direct the affairs of thebig  financial institutions of the country.  Among the latter is J. H. Plummer,  assistant general-manager of the Canadian Bank of Commerce. Mr. Plum-  mer's headquarters are in Toronto.  He has been'in the west for some time,  looking after the details of the absorption of the Bank of British Columbia  by the Canadian Bank of Commerce.  The deal is practically consummated  but certain legal formalities will prevent the taking over of the branches  of the Bank of British Columbia until  about the first of the year. Mr. Plummer arrived in the city on Saturday  and registered at the Armstrong. He  was accompanied by hi��. daughter*,  Miss Plummer, D. A. Cameron, formerly manager of the branch here but  now manager at Seattle, and T. G.  Holt, manager of the Bank of British  Columbia at Nelson. The party visited  Phoenix and other mining camps and  left for Grand Forks on Monday. The  visit was Mr. Plummer's first to the  Boundary. He was well pleased with  the mining outlook and delighted with  Greenwood. He expressed the view  that the future of Greenwood was as-  assured, and that since the permanency of the Boundary as a mining district was practically established, the  growth of its metropolis, Greenwood,  was sure to be healthy and rapid.  From a banking point of view, he was  quite satisfied with the business transacted here and he believed that in a  short" time "one" of the~m"ost important  of the bank's branches will b.e that at  Greenwood.  The party visited the Greenwood  smelter and when they left here intended to visit the Granby smelter at  Grand Forks. Today Mr. Smythe,  the local manager, left for Cranbrook and Fort Steele to show Mr.  Plummer that section of the province.  President   Shaugnessy   and  Other Officials  PAY GREENWOOD A VISIT  DEMAND FOR LABOR.  Prominent Officers of the B, of M.  andC, B. C. tn the City.  A. McNider, inspector of branches  of the Bank of Montreal, paid the local  branch a.n official visit and left for the  east today. Representing the strongest  financial institution, in Canada, a  Times representative was anxious to  get his views regarding Greenwood  and the Boundary district. "'This is  my first visit here," courteously replied Mr, McNider to the inquiry of the  newspaper man, "and of course I cannot make a comparison, but I was surprised and delighted at the substantial  appearance of the city. I had no idea  that it was a place of .such import-  Mr. Shaugnessy is Satisfied With the  Outlook and Announces that British Columbia is Going* to Be  Boosted by the Bisr Railway Company.  "British Columbia is all right, and  Boundary is all right, and your town  looks all right," said President T. G.  Shaugnessy, of the Canadian Pacific  Railway company, as he stepped off  his car at Greenwood Sunday morning  and viewed the city from the railway  station. "If the wonderful mineral  resources of this province are not developed it will not be the fault of the  C.P. R.," he continued. "We intend  to keep up with the times and do everything to entourage the mining industry." Mr. Shaugnessy was accompanied by R. B. Angus, 13.'B, Osier  a.nd W. H. Matthews, directors of the  C. P. R.; William Whyte, manager of  lines west of Fort William; W. R.Baker, executive agent at Winnipeg:  P. A.- Eeterson, chief engineer of the  system; and J. R. Nelson, private secretary; R. Marpole, generel superintendent; Captain J. W. Troup, district  superintendent; G. McL. Brown, executive agent at Vancouver; H. J.  Cambie, district resident engineer;  John G. Sullivan, district construction engineer, and other Kootenay  officials. As their time was .limited  they did not spend any time in the  city but went down to Midway and on  the return trip viewed.the site of the  Pyritic smelter. Mr. Shaugnessy described the site as an ideal one and  promised al! ore spur lines required  as soon as desired by the company.  The party got off the train at the  Greenwood smelter, and in company  with Paul Johnson,'M. E., the superintendent, inspected the site and buildings. 7 Mr. Shaugnessy again expressed his satisfaction at the preparations that are being made for treating  ore on a large scale. Mr. Johnson expressed a doubt regarding securing  regular ore cars for hauling ore from  the mines. "Don't let that worry, jrou,  Mr. Johnson," the president replied.  "We are going to give you all the ore  cars you want."  The party left the city about noon  Sunday, visiting Phoenix and the  Granby smelter and then proceeding  to Robson.  THE CITY COUNCIL  If there is an idle man in the city it  is uot because there is no work for him.  There is active demand for labor of all  kinds. The townsite company and the  C. P. R. are deepening Boundary creek  above Deadwood and as it is urgent  that this work should be done hurriedly,.a large force of men is being employed. The Standard Prystic Smelting Company are also putting on men  daily, at least 25 being now employed  at the site. They are busy excavating  for the main building, which will occupy a space 146 feet long and 100 feet  wide. Men arc also busy quarrying  rock for the retaining walls and W. J.  Wartnian is burning a kiln of lime-for  use at the smelter. A C. P. R. engineer will be here shortly to survey the  spur lines to the smelter.  Massam & Laidlaw have plotted a  smelter addition and have already sold  a number of lots. Buildings are being  erected. Lewis & Lowery, the former  of whom kept the Golden Crown boarding house, have erected a large two  story hotel that is almost ready for  occupation. Mrs. Larkin of Greenwood is also building a two story  boarding house. Other buildings will  also be erected so that in a short time  there will be a thriving smelter suburb  to Greenwood.  -  (  .  -' -  "1  ***��>  *-��'���-  In the absence of Mayor Hardy, AM. _-  Sutherland   occupied the chair at the  regular meeting' of   the  city council  Monday evening, Aid.

DENTIST  Naden-Flood Block,     GREENWOOD  0>e  Uleekiy Cimes.  PUBLISHED BY  The Greenwood Times Printing and Publishing  Conn-any, Limited.  DT3..-CA.N Ross Editor.  WkDNESDAY, OCTOBER 3, WOO.  THE PROVINCIAL CANDIDATES,  There will be a close contest in  every constituency in the province.  In Yale-Cariboo, as has already been  stated, both candidates are on an even  footing, so far as they are personally  concerned. The electors are pretty  evenly divided into Liberals and Conservatives. Mr. Galliher has the advantage of suppoitiug the party in  power and the still more decided advantage of supporting a party whose  record has been the cleanest and  brightest since confederation. The  ���Liberals ��� under Sir Wilfrid Laurier  have done more towards securing a  recognition of Canadian claims to  greatness among the nations of the  earth and towards increasing the good  feeling that existed between the mother  country and her colonies. The Laurier  government has in every possible way  encouraged the development of the almost illimitable natural resources of  this great country, it has removed internal strife and dissension and has in  every possible way exerted its influence  in making the people happy and prosperous. The electors of Yale-Cariboo  are possessed of more than ordinary  intelligence and .independence, so far  as the politics of the country are concerned, so that the good record of-the  .Liberal party,* together with the advantage .'of being in power, will aid Mr.  Galliher in winning the election.  In other districts, the contests will  be unusually interesting. Geo. R.  Maxwell is again the Liberal standard bearer. He is a clever platform  speaker and an active and aggressive-  campaigner. In 1896 he had the advantage of having two Conservative  opponents, Messrs. Cowan and Bowser,  who split the Conservative vote. It is  generally conceded that his opponent  in the coming contest will be Francis  Curter-Cotton. He has plenty of ability,  ���inany_strpng eue.mies, and some strong  friends. Conservatives as a rulV vote  Conservative,and,if in this respect they  carry out the traditionsrof their party,  Mr. Cotton is likely to give Mr. Maxwell considerable trouble-  The Conservatives have not yet  found a man to oppose Aulay Morrison  in New Westminister. .He ia an exceptionally strong candidate and in a  fair fight will have an easy victory,  but there are certain rumors that the  fishermen, who are numerous in the  district, intend running a labor candidate. Now the fishermen have not  the slightest chance of electing their  man but they might succeed in electing a good Conservative who is  generally the enemy of labor and labor  interests.  In this connection reference can very  properly be made to laboring men's  folly in allowing loud-mouthed agitators who are strangers to labor in  dishing up their politics to them.  There is considerable talk of a labor  candidate in this district. Such a  candidature cannot possibly prove successful. The only chance for a labor  man to run is Nanaimo, where Ralph  Smith will receive the endorsation of  the Liberal party. Labor men have a  perfect right to run candidates where  they have any hope of winning, but it  is folly on their part to play into the  hands of their enemy by running  labor candidates to defeat those who  would be their friends. -  Coming back to candidates,  there is  likely to be a three-cornered fight in  Nanaimo district, or Vancouver district  as it is officially called. Here W.  Sloane, a Nanaimo man who made a  forthne in Klondike, has sectored the  nomination of a quasi-independent  Liberal convention. The rank and  file Liberals refuse to endorse Mr.  Sloane and along with the labor< men  are anxious to nominate Ralph Smith,  M. P. P. W. W. B. Mclnnes is supporting Mr. Sloane and as the clan  Mclnnes do not feel very friendly  towards the Liberal government these  days, it can be taken for granted that  Mr. Sloane's candidature is not satisfactory to the Liberal leaders: The  Conservatives have nominated Jtl6:  Bryden, ex-M. P. P;, brother-in-law of  Premier Dunsmuir, and superintendent  of the Dunsmuir cdlliefies. Rai_J_i  Smith can defeat both candidates if  the laboring men stick together;  Iu Victoria, Col. Prior and Thomas  Earle are again the Conservative candidates. They have represented the  city for many years and are considered  by their political friends invincible.  The Liberals have secured two strong  candidates in Geo. Riley and R. L-  Drury. Geo. Riley has been president  of the Victoria Liberal association for  many years. He has plenty of good  common sense. He knows how to  electioneer and his friends, the enemy,  want to watch the quite, affable, unassuming gentleman who is the Liberal  candidate at Victoria. If George Riley  can not win in Victoria, it is simply  because the city is beyond redemption.  His colleague is a bright, young business man who has already occupied  some public positions at the capital.  What the result vnll be no man can  determine. The provi'ice has always  been considered Conservative but with  the prestige which a successful government gives, it is quite possible that  the six seats may return Liberal mem  bers.  EDITORIAL NOTES.  Thb Bank of British North America  continues to show steady and continuous progress, as the statement in  detail in another part of this paper  gives evidence. The deposits and current accounts show an increase ot  ��249,000 ($1,245,000); the notes in circulation have increased ��104,000 ($520,-  000), the total now being ��534,000, compared with ��430,000 in December, and  with ��325,000 in June, 1899. This increase, as the directors remark, is quite  exceptional, and is due partly to the  general activity of trade in. the Dominion, but more particularly to the  amount of notes required for the purchase of gold dust and other purposes  at the bank's recently established  northern branches. The Bank of  British North America hlfs always had,  very deservedly, a most high reputation, and the present statement will  give much satisfaction to 'its many  friends and customers.  With a poor wheat crop in Manitoba  and the Northwest Territories, the  Canadian Pacific is compelled to fall  back on the mining districts of British  Columbia for traffic that will pa3r, and  the president of that greatest of Canada's industrial enterprises knows that  every good word that he can say regarding our mining resources will  bear fruit. The tonnage of ore from  mines dirrctly tributary to his company's lines in Kootenay and Southern  Yale is increasing every day, and it is  not at all visionary to predict that  next year it will be double what it will  be this year. The handling of 5,000  tons of raw ore a day from mines to  smelters; short haul as it will be.means  a million.. dollars a year in freight  charges, and another million dollars a  year for the haulage of goods and supplies to the mines, smelters, and the  people who work in or around them.  Is it any wonder, then, that far-seeing  railway men, like Mr. Shaughnessy,  are "boosting" British Columbia.���  Nelson Tribune.  EDITOR'S AWFUL PLIGHT.  F. M.

"���-.(  The general meeting- of this bank  waa held on Tuesday at the office of  the corporation, 3 Clement's lane Lombard street, TS,. C, Mr. E. Hoar presiding*. " * .  - The secretary, Mr. A. G. Wallis,  having- read the notice convening- the  meeting-.  The chairman  said:   Gentlemen, as  I  shall have occasion in the course of  my   remarks  to   refer  to the various  matters mentioned in the report, I will  not now occupyyour time by  reading-'  it in detail, but will proceed at once to  the consideration of the balance sheet  > aiid, in doing so, it will be convenient  to   compare .the  figures of June 30th",  with   those   of   December  31st,   1899.  Our deposits and current accounts show  an increase of ^.249,000���thus showing  steady and continuous progress.   The  notes   in  circulation   have   increased  ��104.000, the total now being ��534,000  compared with ��450,000 in  December,  and with ��325,000 in June, 1899.   This  increase is quite remarkable; it is due  partly to the general activity of trade  in the Dominion, but more particularly  to   the large amount of noteB which  have been required for the purchase  of gold dust aiid other purposes at our  recently established northern branches.  (Hear hear.)   Bills payable and other  liabilities   show :an increase of ��153,-  000.;; You   will  have ^observed)   both.  ..from", the .report-, and from  the balance  ���*-.shee.t.7th-ttjwe-ha^  to   the  fund for the relief of the. sufT  ferers by the conflagration in Ottawa,  and we feel confident that our action  will meet with your; cordial approval.  (Hear,   hear.) -This   next item, which  again,  is referred, to specially in the  report as well as in the balance sheet,  is an  appropriation of ��3,000 to meet  expenditure    on    premises    account.  This sum we have set apart out of the  profits of the half year towards the expenditure   on   our    new   premises   in  Gracechurchstreet.   Those of you who  from time to time visit the bank must  have appreciated that, for a long-time  past,   these  premises   have been entirely inadequate for our business, and  consequently, nearly three years ago,  we decided that it was absolutely neces-  say   for   us   to make a change.   The  matter has constantly occupied our attention, and   during all this time we  have frequently endeavored to secure  more suitable  offices, but without success,  until  a few months ago we were  offered a long lease of the ground floor,  lower   ground   floor and basement of  the Woolpack buildings in Gracechurch  street.   We do not say that the situation is all that we could desire���but if  it is   not quite within the most select  circle, it is at least convenient, and we  believe   will   prove   suitable   for  bur  business.   The accommodation which  we   have   secured should prove to be  ample,   not only for our present purposes,  but for a considerable growth  in our business.   The  ground floor is  now   being adapted for our banking  requirements.   It is exceptionally well  lighted,   and will make a   handsome  banking hall;  affording to the public  as well as to the staff of the bank "the  space which has been singularly-wanting here.    On the lower  'ground, floor  adjoining the bpaur<_ roQin,.we have arr  ranged, for .a l^g-f^nd;comfortable  room,   which wUi7"-&e7^CT6ted. to our  " J!        -        ���^'-l.^.-V'- ����__"' *-~_.-_  of those who annually visit us on business ia constantly increasing, and for  a long time past has been a matter of  concern to us that we have been quite  unable to show them any hospitality of  this kind���our offices, being so cramped  that we have not even been able to  provide a waiting room, for their accommodation. The plans "of our new  premises have been arranged so as lo'  supply this need in the most convenient manner possible, and we hope  that in future it will be appreciated  and constantly made use of by all our  friends, to whom we desire to extend a-  very warm welcome. (Hear, hear.)  The basement will be occupied by the  strong rooms.. The necessary alterations, j are now 'being carried out  under- the direction of our architect,  Mr. Macvicar Anderson, and will, we  hope, be completed before the end of  the year. The cost of these alterations  will be considerable, and the sum we  have now appropriated will not nearly  suffice to cover it; but we have thought  that the balance might fairly be spread  over the subsequent half years. The  usual appropriations for the benefit of  the staff referred to in the report will,  I feel sure, be approved. On the other  side of thc account, our cash and specie  amount to ��1,153,000, being an in-  cieaseof ��356,000. This represents a  proportion of 59 per cent to'our im-  mediate.liabilities. You will no doubt  observe that the bank is an exceptionally strong position. TWe feel that the  YARD AT DEADWOOD. B. C.  We have on hand   No. 1   Brick,   well  burnt and solicit your patronage."

HALLETT,  Collector  financial!''tMlldbk-is'not-'with'out^its'-u'-ir?.  certainties,, and welike t�� be prepared  for  them.   Cash  at call and short notice amounts to ^921,000���a decrease of  ��101,000; but this decrease you will observe, is much more than compensated  for  by the increase in the last item.  Under   the  heading-  of  investments,  Consols remains unchanged, but we  have added to our British government  securities by the purchase of ^50,000  of the  National War Loan, which we  have written down to 90 dut of the profits of the half year, so that our. next  balance sheet when, when the stock is  fully paid, the ��50,000 stock will stand  in   our books at ��45,000.   Iti making  this provision we are quite aware that  it may be regarded: as   almost an extreme measure, for it is most unlikely  that  a stock, repayment of which at  par   after ten years is guaranteed by  the  British   government,   can fall to  such   a low figure; but, nevertheless,  the war  in the Transvaal is not even  yet  ended,  and it  is impossible for  any of us to forecast the expenditure  that  may still be necessary for military   purposes   in   South   Africa and  in   China,  and consequently we have  thought it will to be on the safe side,  and place this investment on the same  level   as   the   Consols.   (Hear,   hear.)  This purchase is another step towards  the attainment ot the object which we  steadfastly   keep before us of having  the whole of our reserve fund invested  in British government securities.    Our  other investments show a decrease of  ��9,000.   The   next   item���bills receivable,   loans on security and other ac-:  counts���shows an increase of ��245,(00.  We carry forward to the new  account  ��9,800,   which  is slightly less than* in  June,   1899. when we ^carried forward  ��10,200.   On a previous occasion I explained  to you that it has never been  our policy to make any  addition to our  reserve fund at this half yearly meeting, but we try to carry forward a substantial amount with the object of adr  ding to - the reserve .at thi* end of the  year.   Last year, you will recollect, we  added ��25,000 to oiir reserve fund, and  we shall.be greatly disappointed if we  are not able to add at least as much  this  year. , Qn a previous occasion I  pointed out to you that the growth of  bur  reserve  fund  has  not,   by   any  means, kept pace: with 'the increase" of  MINERAL ACT, 1896.

Mclnnes, general freight  agent of the Canadian Pacific Railway company, and F. W. Peters, the  district freight agent, arrived in the  city on Thursday night's train and  left on Friday for Molson, going out  via Similkameen and Penticton. Mr.  Mclnnes makes his headquarters at  "Winnipeg. It was his first visit to the  Boundary district and he was naturally  astonished at its possibilities as a shipping district. Although early in the  year the freight officials had grave  doubts whether the Boundary would  ship sufficient ore to make profitable  the heavy expenditure in the construction of the main line of the C. &  W. and .'he numerous branches to the  different mining camps; they are now  worried ih the opposite direction and  are busy making 'explanations for the  shortage of ore cars necessary to handle the large tonnage offered. Many  * * of the mines are obliged to ship ore in  ��� ordinary box cars, in the absence of a  sufficient amount of regular ore cars.  Thursday evening,-the two freight  officials met representative mining  men in the city and discussed the  freight situation with theni.- Among  those present were: Frederic Keffer,  superintendent of the British Columbia  Copper company; W. Yolen Williams,  of the Miner-Graves syndicate; Geo.  H. Collins, of the Brandon and Golden  Crown; S. F. Parrish, of the B.C.  mine. Mr. Mclnnes explained that  owing to -the unexpected heavy shipments from Rossland camp there was  a shortage of ore cars for the Boundary  district, but 100 additional cars were  under construction and there completion will be ..hastened. ** This is  rendered necessary not only because  new mines are ready to ship, but the  Graves syndicate have determined to  double their shipments, making at  least 600 tons a day.  MesBrs. Mclnnes and Peters, in company with Andrew H.aidlaw, the general manager, visited the site of the  Standard Pyritic smelter. They expressed themselves as being well  ___ .pleased with the_ site and stated that  there would be rib difficulty in" securing  the necessary spurs.  As already stated, they left on Sunday for Molson, to size up the possibilities of trade in that section. The  Similkameen will also be visited as  the trade of that district is continually  increasing and those operating there  are anxious to secure plants for their  mines.  ��  M  City Gleanings  %-6&:&:6i6-:&��6-6Se*6&:&:'5-66-:6-:66S^'  J.

Cross-cutting is being continued  both ways from the 100-foot level on  the Marguirite. The north drift from  the No. 1 shaft is also being continued.  There is 25 feet of solid ore in this  drift. A trial shipment of four cars  will shortly be made to the Granby  smelter.     " ...  The James Cooper Company have  sold a large Cameron station pump for  handling the water pumped by smaller  pumps to the levels in the Ymir mine  and a mile of tramway wire to the  same company.- They have also sold  three miles of wire rope to a firm of  engineers building tramways in the  vicinity of Nelson.  That newspaper advertising pays is  shown by the numerous inquiries  made "by mining companies for baby  drills. This summer mining journals  described the successful operation o f  these drills in Alaska mines and since  then the James Copper Company, representing the Ingersoll Seargent Drill  Company, have had numerous inquir-  ses regarding these drills. "The Hastings Exploration Syndicate; owning*  the Arlington mine at Erie, B. C, has  placed an order and other companies  are contemplating the use of the drills.  METHODIST CHURCH ANNIVERSARY  The services in connection with the  anniversary of the Methodist church  were well attended. The anthems by  the choir' were much appreciated and  the whole congregation joined heartily  in the singing of familiar hymns. A  special feature of the morning service  was a chorus by the children.  Rev. R. W. Trotter delivered two  very able and practical service. The  morning text was in the second verse  of the seventh chapter of the Book of  Judges���"The people that be with thee  are too many." The reverand gentleman gave a very vivid description of  the way in which 300 splendid soldiers  were chosen from an army of 2,000 to  go out and conquer the Midianites.  The speaker then proceeded to show  that the men whom God uses are men  of courage, enthusiasm and submission.  The evening sermon from Joshua,  4-6, was particularly appropriate to the  occasion. From the text, "What mean  yc by these stones." The preacher  spoke of what the church stands for.  The services of Sunday were followed by a "Pink Tea" on Monday  evening. The church was prettily  decorated and a very enjoyable evening was spent. Rev. Hector McKay,  of Eholt, and Rev. G. K. Bradshaw, of  Grand Forks, delivered rousing addresses. Mr. Geo. McKenzie, of Phoenix, carried the audience by storm in  his singing of "When Johnnie Can-  nuck Comes Home Again."  The bountiful repast provided by the  ladies was heartily enjoyed. The  waiters looked beautiful wearing white  gowns with pink turbans and pink  aprons. The meeting was closed with  the singing of the national anthem.  MUSIC LESSONS  Miss.

[Continued from TUird Page.]  our liabilities. ��� This was not caused  by any neglect on our part, but be.--,  cause during the lean years which we  were passing through we had not the  means of doing so.* In illustration of  what I have said, I wish to place before you a comparison between our  present figures and those of five years  ago. In June, 1895, our reserve fund  amounted to .��275,000; now it stands at  ,��325,000, an increase of ��50,000, or 18  per cent. Tn Juue, 1895, our total  liabilities amounted to ��4,478,000;  whereas at the present time they  amount to -��7,335,000, an increase of  ��3,867,000, or no less than 63 per cent.  These figures are quite sufficient to  justify the directors iri their determination to build up the reserve fund during present prosperous times to the utmost of their power and in placing tliis  object before any other. (Hear, hear.)  Perhaps these last figures may also  s_rve as an answer to those gocd na-  tu ei critics who tell me from time to  time that we are not a progressive  bank. Surely an increase of 63 per  cent in our total liabilities within a  period of five years���not fostered by  the amalgamation system so prevelent  in this country; but the result of  genuine and legitimate growth and  extension���can hardly be regarded as  justifying such criticisms. 1 may now  conclude my remarks respecting the  accounts by. pointing out that the  dividend lor the half year under review is at the rate * of 30s per share, or  6 per cent, compared with 25s per  share, or 5 per cent, for the half year  ended June, 1899���an increase with  which you will no doubt be pleased.  (Hear, hear.) There is one other matter to which I must refer, although it  is not mentioned in the report. You  will see that among our establishment-,  in British Columbia the branch at Bennett is mentioned; but I may inform  you no v that we have quite recently  decided to close that branch, which has  been opened for little more than a year.  We always felt somewhat doubtful  whether this branch would prove to be  permanent, and when I had the honor  of addressing you a year ago I used  these words: . "Bennett is a place  where a considerable business is being  transacted. It is a sort of half way  house to Dawson City, and has developed into quite a business town.  Should the railway ultimately be carried right through to Dawson, its importance may consequently be diminished, and we have not been unmindful of this point in opening our branch  there; but, nevertheless, the position  has seemed to us worthy of a trial."  That is exactly what has happened.  The railway has not yet been carried  through to Dawson -City, but it has  been extended to White Horse, so-that  Bennett is no longer the terminus, and  its business is rapidly dwindling away,  Anticipating this possibility, we had  not involved ourselves by the purchase  of a bank building���we" merely rented  an office on a short term agreement���  and we can close down without any  serious loss. (Hear, hear.) I have now  occupied so much of your time by- an  explanation of what I may describe as  our domestic interests that I can only  briefly refer to the general conditions  of trade and finance in jthe Dominion  of Canada during the period under review. Canada has enjoyed another  year of uuusual prosperity, and during  the fiscal year ended June 30th,last,the  aggregate trade of -thei country  amounted to $336,000,000, an increase  of about $50,000,000 over that of the  previous year, notwithstanding the  fact that the aggregate trade for the  year -ended- June, 1899, was greater  than that of any that preceded it. If  we carry the comparison back to 1896  we "find that the present figures compare with a. total of $239,000,000���a  very remarkable increase. I shall not  be so unwise as to attempt to predict  the future course of trade, but we must  not forget that the success of agriculture is the mainspring of Canadian  prosperity, and it is, therefore, interesting to know that in the Province of  On ia r io^' the'yprospects ^ are -usually-  bright, o and there appears to-be little  doubt that the harvest will be fully  equal to the average, both in quantity  and in quality. On the other hand,  the result of the harvest in Manitoba  can hardly fail to prove most disappointing, for, owing to continued  drought,the crop of wheat was seriously damaged, so much so that in several  districts it will prove a total failure.  Although it has been computed that  no inconsiderable part of last year's  favorable harvest still remains in the  country, having been held back by the  growers in the expectation of better  prices, there is no doubt that the net  result will not be satisfactory to the farmers, and that other industries will  consequently suffer. The progress of  the mining industry in British Columbia continues to be satisfactory,  and although in the early part of the  year there were labor troubles in the  Rossland camp, which at one time  assumed a most threatening aspect,  serious trouble was averted by the  judicious action of the managers of the  principal mines, and at the present  time the relations between capital and  labor are apparently more harmonious  than for some time previously. The  output from the mines is not only keeping pace with, but exceeding that of  previous years, notwithstanding the  fact that two of the principal properties  have not yet resumed shipments since  the labor troubles to which I have already referred.   The output is, in fact,  larger than the capacity of the smelters, which in consequence are being  largely added to. The development  of this industry brings with it a constantly increasing population, and  thus provides a ready market for the  agricultural products of the Northwest Territories. The result of these  prosperous cond'tions has been a  steady demand for money at fair rates  and the resources of the bank have  consequently been profitably employed.  I must not, however, omit to mention  that in New York the rates for money  at call and short notice have been distinctly lower than in the previous half  year. As we are in the. habit of employing a part of our funds in New  York, we have, of course, felt the effect  of the lower rates of interest. (Hear,  hear.) The chairman concluded by  moving the adoption of the report and  balance sheet and inviting questions  from the shareholders present.  A POWDER MILL EXPLOSION.
