A   big  plant,  a, competent superintendent   and   the   necessary   "where-  withall" to'carry on the work, can  accomplish wonder',   when it comes to  develop   a mining-   property.   'A   few  weeks ago the Times announced a big  strike   on   the   Sunset   in   Deadwood  camp, and this week it takes pleaaure  iri announcing that another big strike  has   been  made in  the Crown Silver  shrift.   The Crowii  Silver, as well as  the Sunset, is owned by the Montreal  Boundu.iv Cieek Mining company, and  both are under the superintendence of  Mi.   Hany   Johns.    Since   March   15  last,  when the   pUnt   was   installed,  over 600 feet of work has been done on  both properties.    The Sunset shaft has  been sunk 65 feet and the Grown Silver  shaft  a similar distance.    As has already been stated, a body of ore 38 feet  wide was encountered  in  the drift at  tl.*. 200-foot level on the Sunset.   This  week  the. Crown Silver shaft ran into  ore at 88 feet and continued in'ore to  the bottom  of the shaft, 95 feet.   The  whole of the shaft at this depth was in  ore and. the ore is by- far-the best that  has yet been encountered on  the company's properties.   It is solid copper  pyrites with high   copper  values and  some gold. The vein dips in a northerly  direction.     The   shaft   is   practically  crosscutting the vein_^ and' as eooti as  this is done Mr Johns in tends 1 miniug  a drift on theore body: * * -*".'-'  In reference to the strike7011 tne  Sunset theie was considerable doubt  regarding the value of the pre. A  mining man who visited the Sunset  secured a piece of 01 e and had it assayed. The result was an eye-opener/  The' sample assayed $34 to the ton in  g*old.  W. L. Hogg, managing director of  the Montreal-Boundary Cteek Mining  company, is expected from the east  the first of next week, and he will remain for some tune m the district.  A report was in circulation duri'n  the early "part of the week that the  Graves Syndicate and the Canadian  Pacific Railway company had came to  an understanding in reference to  smelter charges. . This report was  based on the statement that'the Granby  smelter at Grand ^ForksTwas quotin*gTa  $7 rate for treatment, while the Trail  smelter   quoted   a  $7   treatment   and  II  Of The Minister of Mines���just  out.

Such an arrangement would give the Trail smelter the  advantage, but the knowing ones  maintained that" Mr. Graves got .a  quid pro quo iri the shape of low rates  on coke and also on ore from the Knob  Hill and* Old Ironsides. As such an  arrangement would be detrimental to  the mining interests of Boundary because it would mean that low grade  mines could not be operated u ul ess  the British Columbia Copper coin pan y  gave a reasonable rate, the Times  called up Mr. Graves over the telephone and asked him when the smelter  would be ready to blow in.  ���'In about two weeks," Mr. Graves  replied.  "Have vou made public a treatment  rate for your smelter?"  "No,, we have not. We have made  two contracts with mines, but the rate  has not been made public."  "Are you going to make a rate public?"   "''  "Well, I could not answer that. .You  see we want to get started aiid running  before we announce anything definite.  Any arrangements made, so far with  outside mining  companies  have been  private." 7.7 :      '-..".;" '-'������   *'"-���  "Well, Mr.. Graves, I might'just as  well tell you what t want to know.  Th"ere is a report that you have an  understanding with the C. P. R. and  that you are quoting^ a $77 rate for  treatment, while the Trail smelter is  quoting; a $7 rate for transportation  and treatment.   Is that so?"  "You can say for me that there is  absolutely no truth in such a statement.: To show 3'ou how absurd it is  I will-tell you that one of the contracts  we have for treatment calls for a $5  rate and the other for $4.75. I did uot  hear that report and am glad you called  my attention to.it. We are not in collusion with the C. P. R. in any way,  and when we get properly started we  will take all the ore offered up to our  full capacity, after our ore is treated,  at a rate that will allow only a small  margin of .profit. My associates and  myself are interested in seeing the  Boundary country developed and we  will do everything we can to encourage  deTelopment._L^.i^i^_J_,^^__i_1^s  Mr. Graves also stated that until the  smelter was ready to treat ore, five  cars or 150 tons a day would be shipped  from the Knob Hill and Old Ironsides.  Shipments would also be continued  from the City of Paris. Already over  1,500 tons of the City of Paris ore has  been hauled to the smelter. The Lone  Star and Washington, on La Fluer  mountain, across the international  boundary line, is also shipping by  wagon to the Boundary smelter. About  five tons a day is being hauled.  The article which appeared in the  Times last week in reference to smelter created considerable discussion.  Doubting ones who thought nothing  was being done, went out, saw for  themselves and came back convinced  that a large amount of work had been  done and that everything is ready for  the machinery. Superintendent Liden  stated that the article was accurate in  the details excepting that six weeks  will not be too long a time to allow for  the installation of the machinery after  it reaches here. He also announced  that he had just received a telegram  from E. P. Allis & Co., Milwaukee,  stating that the whole of the big plant  for the smelter had been shipped. It  should reach here in fourteen clays.  ., John Emerson rode in on Saturday  from Cedar Canyon country, near Old  Fort Spokane, and reported a big  strike on the Jolly Boy, a claim in  which J. A. Cameron and Seth Emerson are interested. The Jolly Boy adjoins the famous Deer Mine No. 2. A  crosscut tunnel on the  claim   tapped  the Deer mine vein at a depth of 150  feet. Mr. Emerson reports the vein as  rich as that of the Deer mine which returned $150 net, above freight and  transportation. The ore is a black  sulphide with high silver values. J.  A. Cameron leaves for tlie property the  first of next week, atid if it is as rich  as reported, he will make arrange-  luents to ship ore immediately. He  owns one-third, Seth Emerson one-  third and the remaining third is held  by W. A. Crawford, of Davenport.  News of a great strike comes from  the City of Paris, in Central camp,  where the tunnel ac the 250-foot level,  last Tuesday tan into a bodj' of ore, a  sample of which gave assay returns of  Si. 144.93; and this was not a'picked  specimen either. South of the main  tunnel, iu the east drift which was run  for exploration purposes, a ledge of  galena was found last winter and was  followed for 800 feet. From this lead  a.trial shipment was made to the Trail  smelter a short time since ami gave returns of S18 to the ton. Thus it would  seem that the City of Paris is amine  in more than one way.'  The directors of the Cariboo-Mclvin-  ney Gold Mining Company, paid a  dividend of \y2 par cent for the quarter on July 3. The gross earnings of  the company are about $76,000 for the  three months, leaving a large surplus  in the treasury,  The report af the North Star Mining  Company, Limited, for the year ended  May 31, states that on April 1 there  was blocked out in the mine ready for  shipment ore to the value of $1,900,000.  The total value mentioned above docs  not include several ore bodies known  to exist on the property, but the contents of which have not yet been determined. Thymine started shipping  ore on February 18, and up to May 31  the proceeds of ore sales' were $184,-  132.92". Out of this a dividend of  $39,000 has been paid.  The deal by which the Sailor Consolidated Mining������- company assumed  the plant and.assets of the Minnehaha  was ratified at the annual meeting of  the shareholders of the Sailor, held iri  the Temple building, Toronto, a few  days ago. Mr. A.. Iv; Davis, mayor of'  Peterborough, was in the chair. Re-,  ports of a highly satisfactory nature  were presented, and the old board of  directors was re-elected.  THE MING.

SENATE AT IT AGAIN.  Ottawa, July 16.���The senate was  at it again today. C. N. Armstrong,  of Baie des Chaleurs fame, objected to  the sequestration clause of Blair's  railway amendment bill and subsequently the senate threw it out by 13  to 17. It also threw out a second time  the clause appointing three judges for  the province of Qfhebec in the provincial judges bill. MacKenzie Bowell  led the attack on Quebec, and the vote  stood 16 to 17. It was defeated by a  majority of 1. But this was not all, it  also defeated a clause in the Dominion  elections bill which provided that  qualified voters in unorganized districts would be entitled to vote at elections, there being no lists. The Dominion elections act and railway act  were passed in a mutilated condition.  The railway subsidies bill was also  read a third time.  Wanted���A   woman     to   do   house  work.

There was the usual ceremony.  The speech regretted the wars ia  Africa and China and congratulated  Canada on its loyalty to the mother  country. The governor was glad the  province was fairlj piosperous, notwithstanding the wave of depression.  Metalliferous mining was resuming its  normal condition of activity, and a  largely increased output was expected.  Coal mining was prosperous, the output exceeding that of past years,  Lumbering was active, and the foreign demand growing. Agriculture  was making progress with the prospect  of much development. Fisheries of  last year were successful, but it was  too early to judge of fhe lesult of this  year.

The wagon road  shouid be continued from Ke.cmeos to  Princeton, so that the Similkameen  mining district may be brought into  more direct communication with the  city.  These are in alters which the business  men should interest themselves in.  There is so little time to prepare for  the rush of business that is almost  upon its .that it is foolish in the extreme to engage in croaking. The work  of reaching Out for trade is more pleasant and more profitable.  FRIDAY, JULY 20, WOO,  A PEEP INTO THE FUTURE.  There is absolutely no good reason  why people should became discouraged  because of a short period of dull times.  There are' always some who have a  keen eye for nothing but an opportunity to croak. They are usually successful in finding this opportunity.  Fortunately there is a smaller percentage of this class in Gxeenwood than  possibly any other city of the same  size, but we have a few and they are  very much in evidence these days. They  tell a pitiful tale regarding the present  and see no rainbow of hope. They  cannot read the encouraging signs of  brighter times in the near future.  They cannot realize that some live  years ago there was started at the  junction of Twin creek and Boundary  creek what is destined to be one of the  Jargest and liveliest towns ..in the  west.  Greenwood is first a commercial  town. It is the centre from which  trade radiates to a dozen of the largest  mining camps in the world. It is the  business centre for the hundreds of  men who will be employed in the big  mines in the difl*erent mining,camps.  Each of these camps will have  its dinner bucket town, but  .they will be feeders to the metropolis.  Greenwood is the financial centre of  the Boundary , country. It has  branches of thc three largest banking  institutions in Canada, aud as  the greater portion of the busi-  ^'esrWilfW"^��-^  transactions will also be carried on  here.  Greenwood will also be a smelter  town. Already the big smelter of the  British Columbia Copper Company is  Hearing- completion, and there is no  good reason why Eaidlaw's smelter  should be erected near the city.  Greenwood is also the mecca of mining meu. "When there are any claims  to be bonded, when companies are to  be floated or properties sold, mining  capitalists will make Greenwood their  headquarters.  Greenwood enjoys all these advantages because it is the natural centre,  and trade gravitates to the centre, but  in order to reap the full benefit of this  advantage thc men of Greenwood  must be alert and keep pace with thc  rapid development that is going on  around us.  Tlie city must be made attractive.  Il already lias good streets, lirst-claas  ���electric lights and the best of hotel  accommodation. A little united work  on the part of the citizens will make  the city attractive in other ways. The  concomitants of an ideal residential  ���town can be had here with concerted  action. The city should be such as  would prove attractive to the miners  employed in the hills  surrounding  it.  Greenwood should reach out for  trade. During the busy times of last  summer business men neglected outside trade." This should be looked  after. We should have closer co��n-  - munication with the great West Fork  and Kettle river country. There  should be a wagon road there by the  most direct route. There should .be a  bridge across the North Fork and  communication should be established  THE CHINES 10 QUESTION.  The trades and labor council acted  wisely in calling a public meeting to  discuss the Chinese question. The  large influx of yellow-skinned heathens into tlie province this year, the  half-hearted attempt on the part of the  Dominion parliament to discourage  their immigration and the horrible  butchering of our representatives in  their country combine to force the  Chinese question upon the attention of  the public.  Setting aside any prejudices which  may exist against the yellow race  there are many valid objections to the  immigration of Chinese to this  country. The strength of a nation  does not lie so much in ruimbeis as in  the quality of its citizens. What we  want in Canada is a united people,  having similar objects in life, honoring the same flag and queen. A Chinaman is a Chinaman and nothing else  He will not identify himself with the  institutions of , this country. He is  here to make money and return to his  native land. He is simply a sojourner  usurping the place of one who would  make a useful member of society and a  good citizen. The Chinaman disarranges the whole labor market. He  can make money on less than it takes  to buy a white man wholesome food.  He is used as a house servant because  he can be conveniently found, and  while he occupies this position there is  no encouragement for servant girls to  come out here to enter into competition with him. In almost every industry he can be found unfettered by  the, expense which civilized life demands. Ten years ago the cannery  men of the const proclaimed it was impossible to run canneries without  Chinamen. The Chinamen of ten  years ago are the salmon kings of today, and those who nursed them_are  now alarmed lit their competition.  It is all very well for eastern men  who know nothing about the habits  aud peculiarities of the Chinese to denounce a policy of'exclusion, but if  they were acquainted with the facts, if  they had lived where the Chinese demoralizes everything in the field of  labor they would change their  opinions.  There is, of course, a broad principle that ought to control the whole immigration business. The very fact  that man was .brought into existence  gives him the right to exist, and if his  own country is overcrowded he has the  right to go elsewhere to earn the  means of livelihood. But the people  of the country he wishes to enter also  have rights, The true men of the  .east__w.ill -.ajkno-wledge, ,and___support.  Canada's right to protect itself against  the scum of Europe because such an  element is dangerous to society. We  have a similar right to protect ourselves against the slum labor of Chinese, f)  In the absence of a general public  opinion in the east against Chinese  and the consequent absence of drastic  legislation, members of labor organizations as well as others can do much  to discourage the employment of Chinese iu this country. It is remarkably easy to sacrifice principle to suit  one's own convenience. When the  obsequious John comes to your door  and politely asks for " washee " and  brings it baclt if he gets it, isn't easy  to forget that there is a white laundry-  man down thc street? How many laboring men are there in this city today  who patronize Chinese laundries  simply because it is convenient to  do so?  Public opinion must be educated in  this- country. It can be easily demonstrated that the best interests o.f Canada are served by the exclusion of  Chinese, and trades and labor councils  as well as other organizations should  lose no opportunity to do so.  PUBLISHING THE NEWS.  shareholders because^>f>the deal. The  report also possesses that dignity that  age brings. It is somewhere in the  neighborhood of two years old. It was.  sent by the local correspondent of the  British Columbia Mining Record to  that journal to show the status of the-  company, and not as news. The Record published i.t; the Rossland Miner,  with commendable enterprise, copied  it as new and original matter gathered  by its ubiquitous staff, and now it is  going the rounds of the provincial  press as news. The enterprise of the  newspapers is truly remarkable.  EDITORIAL NOTES.  The Phoenix Board of Trade have  acted wisely in making known the requirements of the town. The petition  asking for certain appropriations is,  however, out of order, and will not be  received by the house. The rules of  the house prohibit the reception of any  petition which prays for any expenditure, grant or charge on the public revenue.  Hewitt BoSTOCK, M. P., has decided  to not offer for re-election to the Dominion house of commons. Mr. Bos-  tock found that his private affairs had  to be neglected if the requirements of  such a large constituency were properly looked after, so he decided to  withdraw. Mr. Bostock was.a faithful representative of the largest constituency in Canada, and" it would, indeed, be difficult to find a successor  who can afford to give the same attention to its many and varied requirements.  The Boxers, or the " I-Ho-Chuan,"  ���"I'" meaning righteous, "Ho"  uniting, and " Chaun" defending with  the fist���are one of China's many secret societies. They originated in  Shantung the native hostility-to the  Germans, and have spread all. over  North China. They are bitterly anti-  foreign and anti-Christian, and the  endorsement of their views and agitation by the Chinese government has  led to the present intervention of the  powers.  PROFESSIONAL CARDS,  Some of the provincial papers are  showing considerable enterprise in  publishing a report of a meeting of the  | shareholders of the Boundary Creek  Miniug and Milling company. The  report is about a column in length,  and contains some interesting information regarding the arrangements  made for the disposal of a certain  block of stock to an English syndicate  and expresses the satisfaction of the  HALLETT & SHAW,  Barristers, Solicitors,  ���  Notaries Public.

CANADA'S FINANCES.  fi  The statement of public debt and the  revenue and expenditure for the Nonunion of Canada for the year ending  July 30th last, has been published, and  is probably one of the ^mosl satisfactory yet given to the public. It shows  that the total net debt on the 30th of  June was ��258,128,297, as compared  with $260,045,078 at the  same time last  * year, giving a decrease of $1,916,778.  As compared with May the net debt of  June shows a decrease of $1,299,263.  The revenue for the year indicates a  most satisfactory advance as compared   with 1899, the   increase   being  ��� $4,336,442. The total for the twelve  months ending June 30 was $49,034,-  597, as against ��44,698,155 for the previous fiscal year. The chief item of  increase is customs, which shows a  betterment of $3,131,009 for the whole  year, and $207,951 for the month of  May last. The revenue from public  works and railways reveals an increase  of $804,790 for the twelve months, and  $75,131 for the past month.     Thc post-  ;-;:office-,revenue)for the mouth of .June  77^^��57i733larger than for" May.     For,  igttife^|ioie;yea!r it fell short of 1899 by  7. v 5&i,4077butin view of the reductions  ^;in���"���'the'*domestic   postal rate and imperial and interpostagej this is not\to  be wondered at.     On  the contrary,  it  is apparent that the falling off in revenue resulting from the. reduced rates  will ere long be made up by   the  rapid  increases in the  volume   of business.  Comparing the revenue and expendi-  _L^.t u r e__o n.acco u n t__ of__consolldated_-_fu nd.  for the last fiscal   year with the  rev*  enue   and expenditure   for 1899,   the  facts were that while there was"an increase pf $1,127,808 in the expenditure,  the revenue   gained   by no less  than  . $4,336,442, showing a net gain   in  revenue   of   $3,208,634.     This    showing  ;"7miglit; be.still   further   improved by  7'ad<Uhg.th���J reduction in capital expen-  ��� 7ditui*eil7>wbich amounted   in   the last  "7fiscy:yearMto$518,714.    The total ex-  * y peiiditure-on consolidated account last  ... year was*$34,826,400 as compared with  $33,698',572    in    the   previous    twelve  months.    The  total   capital   expenditure was $7,799,467, as against $8,318,-  181 in 1899.   The largest items of capital   expenditure   were . $5,328,908   for  public works, railways and canals, and  $1,372,707   on   account  of   the   South  Africa contingents.     The latter item  added to au expenditure of $197 ;324 last  "year, makes a total expenditure to date  for the purpose of the contingents of  $1,570,031.  GESNER ALLAN DROWNED.

AT CAPE NOME.  Martial   Law   Needed   to   Maintain  Law and Order.  -They are having lively times at Cape  Nome this summer. The gold diggings are in American territory and  consequently there does not appear to  be much respect for law or order. The  steamer St. Paul which reached San  Francisco recently brought news from  the northern Eldorado. The necessity  for martial law arose out of the jumping of miniug claims and other acts of  lawlessness. The St. Paul also reports a great many cases of smallpox  and typhoid at Nome. When she  sailed it was thought, however, that  the further spread of the disease had  been checked.  Thirty boxes of gold, valued at Sl,-  500,000, arrived from Alaska on the  steamer, which left Nome on the morning of June 27 and St. Michael on the  afternoon of the same day. Fifty-four  passengers came down on the steamer,  all but a few being from Nome, among  them, as a conservative estimate, was  3200,000 in gold. On man, J. S. tang-  ford, of Stockton, Cal., who has been  at Rampart, on the Yukon, forthe past  six years, brought out $30,000 in gold  dust in a valise. His partner, Peter  Jackson, who has been working at  Rampart, also brought $30,000 in gold  on the St. Paul. Half a dozen other  men from Dawson, Rampart, Topkuk  and Nome had small fortunes clutched  in their hands when they went down  the gangplank.  All but $125,000 of the million and a  half that came on the St. Paul is from  Dawson and other camps on the  Yukon. Nome itself and the country  immediately tributary has not turned  out much gold this season. The beach,  which a year ago was reported to be  thick with gold, is declared to be  worked ou'*. Where rich claims were  giving up* their fortunes a few months  ago is now a city of tents, so thickly  placed that a man gets about or between, them- with difficulty. For fully  fifteen miles, returning prospectors  say, the beach is white with tents and  with tarpaulins covering merchandise;  Costly machinery and washers which  were taken to Nome by hundreds of  vessels, are lying on the beach fast becoming useless, for machinery can  neither be used in the vicinity nor  transported conveniently to other diggings.  At the beginning of the season, soon  after moneyed men from Dawson  reached Nome, gambling s'aloons and  all places of business did well and  money was very plentiful, but now  business has become bad and money is  becoming really scarce. Only gambling halls appear to be prosperous.  Here and there is a store that seems  to be doing a rushing business, but  idleness that is forced upon thousands  of men has resulted in impoverishhfg  the great majority of them. Only now  and then is a man seen who has more  money than he knows what to do with.  Hundreds of sober and orderly men  have ceased to spend money except for  the necessaries of life, for there is  absolutely no prospect of their being  able to acquire a "claim"," either "at"NbWe*  or any of the comparatively near-by  camps.  Less than 200 yards back from the  worked-out bench claims is a swamp  which has given up some gold, but not  enough to warrant the presence of  more than a handful of men. Typhoid  fever had broken out when the St.  Paul left there, and there was some  smallpox. Rheumatism is very prevalent. The weather has, however,  been good, with nights comfortable  enough to permit out-of-door sleeping,  and the days are all that could be desired.  WAS IT A MIRACLE.  "The marvellous cure of Mrs. Rena  J. Stout of consumption has created intense excitement in Cammack, Ind.,"  wiites Marion Stuart, a leading druggist of Muncie, Ind. She only weighed  90 pounds when her doctor in York-  town said she must soon die. Then  she began to use Dr. King's New Discovery and gained 37 pounds in weight  and was completely cured. It has  cured thousands of hopeless cases, and  is positively guaranteed to cure all  throat, chest and lung diseases. 50c  and $1.00. Trial bottles free at Miller  Bros', drug store.  A BUNCO MINING GAME.  which yielded liim a large return. He  hied himself to thej gold commissioner  and told him that he wished to pay the  royalty on the output of the claim, and  after stating that he had taken out  $60,000 in gold dust from the property,  paid the official the royalty of 10 per  cent on the amount, consisting , of  $6,000. For this he received a receipt, which stated that the royalty on  claim numbered so and so and on such  creek had been paid for in the, sum of  $6,000. Soon an unsuspecting Englishman came along and asked the  claim owner if he had anything to sell.  The receipt on the royalty paid on the  worthless claim was shown to the  Englishman, and the result was that  the valueless claim was sold to him for  $.125,000. The Englishman, after he  had done two or three days work, realized that he had run up against the  worst kind of a bunko game, while the  " honest" miner had left for scenes of  civilization in order that he might enjoy the fruits of his fraud.  RUDYARD KIPLING.  An Australian war correspondent  had an interview with Mr. Rudyard  Kipling in Bloemfontein. He is described as a little, squat-figured,  sturdy man of about 40. His face has  been made familiar by portraits, but  no photograph gives any hint of the  quick, nervous energy of the man.  His talk is a gabble, a chatter,- a constant jumping from one point to  another. In manner, he is more like a  business man than a literary celebrity.  There is nothing of the dreamer about  him. After recalling his Australian  tour and giving his views of antipodean books and newspapers, Mr. .Kipling said: "lam going back to Eon-  don to fight the people who will say  ' The Boers fought for freedom���give  them back their country.' I want to  fight all that sort of nonsense." Mr.  Rudyard Kipling is strongly of opinion that there will soon be in South  Africa the greatest demand for skilled  labor the world has ever seen. Eong  ago the country would have been developed by railways, irrigation works,  mines and mills under any other government but that of the- Boer. "We"  want you Australians to stay here and  help to fetch the place along," observed Mr. Kipling to his interviewer.  He has the highest opinions of the  Australians, both as colonists and  soldiers. His admiration also extends  to the Australian horses, although his  first introduction to the animal was of  a somewhat serio-comic character. It  was in India he first mounted an Aus"  tralian " buck-jumper,".and the tale is  best told in his own words: " I seemed  to be sitting on great eternal chaos  and then the world slipped away from  under me and that's all I  remember."  Nicely furnished rooms at the Clar  endon. Steam heated, electric light,  $15 per month.     . tf.  E. JACOBS  X-f-K  greenwood:  NOTICE  OF ASSIGNMENT.

Madam Trebelli Captures a Greenwood  Audience.  Madam Trebelli has come and gone  and there are a few music lovers in  Greenwood who do not realize that  they lost an opportunity to hear one of  the world's greatest singers. The  skeptical doubted her merits because  they could not see how a great singer  would find time to come to Greenwood.  They forgot that a railway brings a  mining town Hearing civilization and  occasionally the.iron horse carries exceptional people for the benefit of those  Has Just Opened in the   Times  Block  With a Larg^e Stock of  #  -v.--  *  ������  and Kal$0!ti!tiin&  With   The   Largest   Stock   And  Competent   Workmen   We Goiv  fidentiy ask the People of Qregnj  wood and Surrounding District for  Their Patronage.

There  was a fair-sized audience at the Auditorium on" Wedriesday nig-ht, but the  house ought to have been packed. It  is so seldom that the highest art and  genius find their. \yay to Qrgeuwood  and they shoyid be encouraged when  they d.o cqnie. Nature and education  have done much for Madame Trebelli.  When she appeared on the stag-e  dressed in exquisite ivory satin., embroidered in pearls, she won the audience by her charming manner and delightful stage presence, but the magic  of her glorious voice aroused an en  thusiasm seldom reached by the  usually non-appreciative people of  Greenwood. It would be a waste of  time to attempt to describe the different numbers. They were all without  a musical or histrionic flaw but, perhaps, the encores, "Coming Through  the Rye," and the "Laughing Song-,"  appealed more strongly to the syin"  pathies of the audience. GepiU'ses  often travel together, and it is not  strange to find accompanying Madame  Trebelli, a ��-ifte.d musician like Eugene  A. Berns. He is a thorough master o,f  the piano. He is a perfect accompan 1st.  He sacrifices everything to tlie singe?  and yet retains perfect command of  the instrument. The piano was not in  good shape, but even this defect could  not mar his fine work. Those who  were present are to he congratulated.  It will probably be a long time before  Madame Trebelli's equal will appear  iu Greenwood.  societies.  Boundary Valley Lodge  No. 38, I.O.O.F.  EETS every Tnesday.  _..

The World enjoyed a call on Saturday  from Mr. Andrew Laidlaw, a young  Ontario mau, who has made his mark  in the west. He has become prominent  in mining circles iii British Columbia  and the northwestern states, and  divides his residence between Spokane,  Wash., and Greenwood, B. C. He is  associated with Hon. Mr. Dobell and  other proniineut Quebec men in western enterprises, and in this connection  is managing director of the Standard  Copper company, the Quebec Copper  company and the Standard Pyritic  Smelting company.  The smelting company, Mr. Laidlaw  says, has arranged for the erection of  a pyritic smelter in the Boundary district, and he -believes it will be in  operation nearly as soon as the Granby  smelter at Grand Forks and the Mother  Lode smelter at Greenwood. The exact site of .SeT new reduction works  has uot yet been decided upon, but the  plant has been ordered and is now  under construction at Denver, Coll It  will be in operation within four or five  months, and will have a capacity of  200 ton's per diem. -  The important feature of the new  smelter is that its owners claim that it  will be possible with it to smelt $4 or  S5 ore at a profit. At present ore must  run $9 or S10 to the ton to return a margin to the shippers.  Mr. Laidlaw believes the Boundary  district in British Columbia will begin  to "talk" to the world the coming fall  ���that is to say, when the three smelters now under construction are "blown  in." At present the Boundary country is shipping 1,000 tons of ore a week  to the Trail smelter. This indicates  what the country will do with a full  equipment of smelters���Toronto World.  BANK OF  COMMERCE EXTENSION.  In the senate Hon. Mr. Mills introduced a short act lo amend the bank-  act of this session. It consisted of a  new section, Uealing with the amalgamation of banks. Two millions of dollars was being added to the capital  of the Bank of Commerce by the  purchase of the Bank of British Columbia. In order to carry  out this matter thc bill was needed, as  there was no provision for dealing  with a capital larger than that of the  purchasing bank. Sir Mackenzie Bowell pointed out that during the purchase there would be an interregnum  during which the banks would incur  penalties for a larger circulation without ai*3r provision. The bill was read  a first time.  PEACE AT ANY PRICE.  Two old ladies were next to each  other in a station bus. One of the  them wished to have the window  shut, the other to have it open; the conductor was called to decide the question. One said if it were open she  would catch cold and die; the other  said if it were shut she would die of  apoplexy.  The conductor did not know what to  do, when an old man, who had been  sitting quiet in a corner, said:  "Open the window,-friend; that will  kill one of them. Then shut it, and  we shall be rid of the other and have  some peace."���London Answers.  MINERS' DISTRICT OFFICERS.
