A LARGE COMPANY ON THE  Assessment Plan���Statement From the  Directors - More  Funds  Necessary to Continue   Necessary  Development Work.  The Winnipeg company is to be reorganized, or more properly speaking,  a new company is to be formed with  larger capital and ���the right to assess  the stock. The present company is a  million dollar one, but the new one  will have a capitalization of $1,250,000.  The assessments will be limited to 5  cents-per share. The assessments will  only be made as often as money is  necessary to carry on development.  The directors of the present company  have this to say regarding the reasons  for the formation of the new  company: "In February of the present, year the mine was shut down by  the old management and remained n  that condition for three months.  About the middle of May, some large  blocks of stock having changed hands,  all the old directors but two resigned  and new ones were elected to fill the  vacancies. The new management  found the affairs of the company in a  very discouraging condition. The  mine was by no means proved and  much costly development work would  be necessary before it could be a steady  producer. There was only $648 in the  .treasury���insufficient, to meet the un-  watering of the miue alone���arid less  than 20,000 shares of treasury stock ou  hand,; and its market price the lowest  in the history of the company. The  management, however, had great confidence- in the property, although not  unmindful  of   the  difficulties  before  -_i_i__-__- .attempting*  to make  Amino  without either, funds or" treasury stock.  Some thought of reorganization at  that ,time was entertained, but after  obtaining the services of Mr. N. F.  Tregear, as superintendent, and consulting with him, it was finally decided to make a strong effort to make  the mine self-sustaining without reorganization. For some - months' the  effort was in a measure successful, but  the compulsory development work and  the heavy freight and treatment rates  were too much for the resources of the  Winnipeg in its present stage of development, An important crosscut on  the 100-foot level has been run 120 feet  and should be continued, but at every  turn the work has been hampered by  lack of funds, without which no considerable development could be prosecuted. The,Winnipeg-ground is considerably-broken - up-at * theaOO-f oot  level, and it was very desirable to sink  so as to get below the zo-*ie of disturbance, but this policy could not be pursued   without  running   the property  l, seriously into debt.*. Mr. Tregear assures the management that the property promises well on further develop-  meut, and he strongly endorses the reorganization plans. He is confident  that tlie Winnipeg will make a mine,  although he acknowledges that the  "difficulties encountered have been  greatet than he expected. .  Many of the nuinerous'ledges on the  Winnipeg are of low grade���too low to  ship profitably to the Trail smelter,  where the freight and treatment rate is  $7 per ton���where most of the 1,200  tons shipped from the mine were sent,  or even to the Granby for $5.50, but in  December next the Greenwood sinelter  will give a $4 rate. On the ore the  Winnipeg has already shipped a $4 rate  would not only have saved the company  several thousand dollars, but it would  have enabled the shipment of a lower  grade of ore, which the $7 rate made  prohibitory. At the forthcoming meeting, to which the reorganization  scheme will be submitted, a full statement of the company's affairs will be  submitted. It will take a .couple of  months before the reorganization can  be'f ullyeffected,  WEST FORK ROAD  ft<-<-#��ft����ftft��ftft����ft<.��.ftftftft#ftftft  * - ��  1 WEBBS...

FOOT BALL MATCH.  E. H. Thruston Denies Having Issued  ���        Call For 200 Men.      y  The West Fork road which attracted  public attention a few weeks ago on  account of the diverse opinions expressed by those most directly interested in its - location and construction  is' not anxious-to settle down as an  ordinary trunk road built by a provincial government f��r the benefit of  the prospectors and mineowners in one  of the richest mining districts in the  province. Last week a telephone message purporting to come from E. H.  Thruston, the manager of the Carmi  mine, was received iu the city. . It  contained a call for 200 men wanted  immediately to work on the wagon  road; wages, $3 per day. No sooner  was the announcement made than men  left',the.city for the West Fork.-Others  cime from other towns and went to  the West. Fork. Upon their arrival  there, weary and footsore,_they -found  thafthe call was a hoax and.' that Mr-.  Shaw, who has charge of the work,  had. all tlie men.he requiredf"Their"  feelings toward Mr. Thruston, above  whose signature 'the call was issued,  were not the most friendly, but that  gentleman denies haying had had anything to do with the call, and in a published  statement   says:,; "It   having  that the aforesaid call for men was  published absolutely without my  authority oi knowledge.

The Rossland Record says:  "Thomas Walsh, proprietor of the  Kootenay hotel at Greenwood, who was  married a few days since, is a guest at  the Kootenay, in, this city. Last evening his Elk friends invited him to be  present at a little gathering in the parlors of the International, and after a  timely little speech, Dave Morgan uncovered a handsome bronze clock and  a pair of vases, with the compliments  of those present. He received many  congratulations and good wishes. Mr.  and Mrs. Walsh leave tomorrow for  Greenwood."  A RAG-TIME OPERA.

It would be hard to  pick out any one individual player for  particular mention; but a word of  praise should certainly be spoken of  the Greenwood forwards, who played a  steady and unselfish combination  Stow also deserves mention for his  splendid defense of the Greenwood  goal. The game was watched by a  large number of spectators, including  some loyal supporters of the visiting  team.  The game was called at 4 o'clock,  when both teams came onto the ground.  The Greenwood team looked very  smart in their new colors, green and  white, which they "sported" for the"  first time. Greenwood won the toss,  and decided to. play against" the wind.  Phoenix set the ball in motion, and at  once began to press the attack; i-.fter a  .few minutes play, however, ihe ball  was driven to the home goal arid a  neat shot by Gladden registered - the  first goal in favor of Greenwood. Play  had been resumed some little while  when Duff scored from a "throwtin."  Some fast playing then- ensued, the  ball changing from end to.end with  great rapidity, when the Phenix forwards, getting hold of the ball, rushed  it down the field,* and a well directed  shot by McArthur scored the first goal  for Phoenix. . Shortly, after this half-  time was.called, when the, score stood  2 to Iin favor of Greenwood. *    :  After an interval of five minutes,  play was again resumed. The Greenwood forwards getting hold of the bail,  by ..some clever passing, managed to  take it down the field, when Gladden  was enabled to score once more. Phoenix then again pressed the attack and  Stow was called upon to do some excellent work to defend the visitors' goal;  but the; ball being got away: was  rushed to the Phoenix end, when a  fourth goal was registered, and after a  few minutes more play.tiriie was called,  -leavingi-Greeiuyood --thet,v_ctors._by a  score, of 4 to 1..  ^ The game was refereed by Mr.  Thompson to whom a word of thanks  is due for his impartial- decisions.  The sportsmanlike attitude -of the  Phoenix club was much appreciated by  the; visitors, who were subsequently  entertained at dinner by the home  team.   A very   pleasant evening en-  LITIGATION.  drunk and speeches made, a start was  made for home. It is to be hoped that  Saturday's match may be only the  first of a series between the rieighborr  ing towns.  I HOTEL  ARRIVALS.  The Armstrong���P. J. Barrett, Seattle, Wash.; J. W.

Does Not Want to Sign  Rendell Agreement,  The Times has for months refrained  from criticizing the official acts of the  chief imagistrate of this city because  the people had at last realized his incompetency and were quite prepared  to relegate him to private life when-  the opportunity presented . itself and  this article is written, not for the purpose of reopening the sores of municipal mismanagement, but to warn the  ratepayers against a course, which, if  allowed by them, will plunge the city  further into debt -end litigation.. Last  year the Times strongly protested  against the actions of the mayor which  landed the city in the courts out of  which it came with a judgment of S6,-  500 registered against it. Those mem-*  bers of the council who have the interests of the city at heart, succeeded  in securing a fair and reasonable settlement of the Rendell case; they instructed their solicitors to discontinue  the appeal, but the "mayor childishly  hopes to thwart the wishes of the council by refusing to sign the agreement.  He is evidently hugging thc delusion  that now the appeal has been discontinued Rendell & Co. may be able to  secure the full amount of the judg-  ment"and.costs and the city be injured  to a greater extent than under the settlement which was affected by -the  council.  Nor is this all. Miller Bros have a  suit pending against the city, a suit  which is based upon similar facts to  those which gave Rendell & Co.. their  judgment."r The council realizing'the  futility of carrying on further litigation with Rendell & Co., sought a  settlement and secured a reasonable  one. With a similar case against  them one would naturally suppose that  the council would be anxious to affec  a settlement with Miller Bros, before  the city is mulcted in damages and  heavy costs; but no! Mayor Hardy,  who resides at Phoenix, and comes to  Greenwood apparently for the purpose  of offering opposition to all actions of  the council that have for their object  the settlement of these disputes that  have retarded the growth of *thc city  and endangered its credit in the money  market, says that the city must fight  Miller Bros., must be put to further  cost in. endeavoring to prove that  municipal wrong doing will be made  munieipal^right-doing-by���the courts.-  Next Friday another case against the  city will be tried in Nelson. It is too  late to do anything looking towards a  settlement in this Waterland case, but  surely if the council cannot bring the  mayor to reason, the people who elected  him ought to do something to put a  stop to this endless litigation. The  mayor's perversity has already cost  the city much and it would be folly to  allow him to persist in a course that  will only add heavier burdens to those  already borne by the ratepayers.

Duncan Rcss Editor.  WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 17, 1900.  TUPPER'S PATRIOTISM.  If at any time within the life of W.  A. MacDonald,;Q. C., the Conservative  party should regain power, it would be  emninently fitting that Mr. MacDon-  ald's noble effort to give Sir Charles  Tupper a certificate of character should  be fully recognized. It is not often  one has an opportunity to hear such  splendid special pleading from an able  lawyer. Mr. MacDonald's effort  twisted Mr. Kerr's statements as reflections upon.Tuppcr's loyalty, and he  thus made the opportunity of waving  the old flag in his venerable leader's  interest. What Mr. Kerr really did  was to point out that Sir Charles has  not yet forgotten the tricks of the  political trickster and that he is ever  ready to use any means to score a point  against an opponent.  Mr. Kerr had good grounds for any  statements he made. The Conservative party, led by Sir Charles Tupper,  are responsible for permitting as dirty  a piece of campaign trickery, as can be  found anywhere. In the province of  Quebec was circulated the notorious  Tory pamphlet No. 6, with its flaming  headlines intimating that Laurier was  in favor of Imperial Federation and  Tupper condemns it. The pamphlet  was published in French and the  body of it contains loyal, patriotic utterances from Sir Wilfrid. It gives  extracts such as these from Sir Wilfrid :  "On the 18th of June, 1897, at a banquet held at the Imperial Institute,  after a military review before Lord  Lansdowne, secretary of war, Sir Wil-  ^frid Laurier, in a moment of ethusi-  asm put allThe Ca~nadian~tr-66"ps"at"the  disposal of the Empire. As a worthy  descendant of French blood, he chooses  the anniversary of Waterloo to make  the offer. According to a cablegram  dated London, June 18th, 1897, to the  Globe, on Lord Lansdowne, asking if,  in case of just conflicts, the colonies  would be willing to help England and  Sir Wilfrid is said to have replied as  follows:  " 'Lord Landsdowne has mentioned  that a day may come when the Empire  might be threatened. This date, anniversary of the battle of Waterloo, reminds us that at all times England has  proved itself to win its own wars, but  should a day come when it should be  in danger, then let the bugle blow and  rallying fires be lighted on the hills  aud in the colonies and though we may  not be able to do very much, we shall  give all the help within our means.'  "This was a solemn promise and it  was kept. A few days afterwards,  Sir Louis Davies even went fnrther  than his leader and pointing to the  Canadian troops said in the presence  of the other colonial ministers:  " 'If England needs 10,000 men of  this type, Canada shall give them.' "  The object of the pamphlet is obvious. It was intended as an accom-  painment to Sir Charles Tupper's  statement: "Laurier is too British for  me," and for French circulation only.  While it was doing duty in Quebec,  Conservative leaders in Ontario were  upbraiding the .Liberal leader for being dilatory in sending soldiers to fight  the battles of the Empire. Of course,  when Sir Charles was charged, in  English speaking colonies, with being  sponser to pamphlet No. 6, he repudiated it although it had the seal bf the  Conservative committee. Notwithstanding his repudiation it is still doing duty in French Quebec���an eloquent witness of the fact that Tories  are not above abusing the loyalty of a  Liberal patriot for party purposes.  WE WILL.  "Dear Editor���Might you not commend the following to the attention of  the citizens of Greenwood," is the  brief note from a gentleman who  knows the value of standing together  in the upbuilding of a city. The extract which is from the Portland Ore-  gonian is well worthy of reproduction:  "It beats all ���the gumption of the  men of Seattle. How they stand by  their town, how they work together,  how they do things, how tliey get there!  Chicago rising from the ruins of its  great fire, Galveston pulling itself together from the desolation of its awful  storm, are eminent examples of the  community determination and push  that are signally and uniterruptedly  in evidence at the busy and plucky  metropolis of Puget Sound. The  spectacle is one that can only excite  the admiration, though it may provoke  the wrath of Seattle's rivals.  The latest exhibition of Seattle's  colossal enterprise aud nerve is the appointment of a committee charged with  the duty of inducing thirteen or more  trans-continental railroads to push  westward and make Seattle their western terminus. Thse men mean business. They are men of brains, of  diplomacy, of information, of tenacity.  They may not J get all thirteen roads,  but they will come as near as anybody, and if they only get one they  will be satisfied for their labors, and in  any event they, will have drawn attention to their town and perhaps attracted capital for productive investment.  "You never hear Seattle whining  that somebody is getting its busines  away from it. Nobody gets it away."  You never hear it calling mass meetings to find out who is to blame for the  loss of its Alaska trade. It doesn't  lose it. You never hear it denouncing  census bureaus because Seattle's enumerators have been too lazy or careless  totake the f ull population. They always take it; You never hear Seattle  men complaining tyjat some railroad  or other has got them in i(s grasp.  They get together, and if there is any  grasping >o be done the railroad is up  against it. You never hear them crying about the relentless oppression of  its telephone monopoly. They order  out their instruments as one man, and  the monopoly does the crying. You  never hear of their walking the floor  because they can't get money for their  local enterprises. They get the money  and the other fellow walks. You never  hear them raging because other towns  are noticed more frequently in eastern  papers. They simply get their notices  in and let the other towns do the raging.  "Now, it jsone of the simple but perplexing facts of the situation that Seattle does all this in the face of obstacles  before which less determined hearts  would be daunted. Such produce as it  gets from eastern Washington and  such goods as it distributes there have  to be Hauled over the Cascade range in  opposition to the water-level grades  that connect that territory with Portland. It has to do its commerce in  spite of the terrifying dangers of the  Straits of Fuca, compared with the  peaceful fresh water harbor of the Columbia. It has to import its fruit and  farm produce from Oregon. It cuts  lumber and mines coal,and that's about  all,  while the region around Portland  is amazingly "pr^ductiW^in^wheatr  fruit, hops,' poultry and dairy products,  wool, livestock, vegetables, flax, hides  and hay. It had 3,000 population to  Portland's 17,000, and now it has 80,-  000 to Portland's 90,000, and it has done  this with Tacoma fighting it on one  side and Spokane on the other.'  " Our compliments to the bustlers  and hustlers and rustlers of Seattle!  The best thing that we can wish them  is that they would come over to Portland, where their grit and gumption  will have something worth while to  work on.  TOT CAUSES NIGHT ALARM,  "One night my brother's baby was  taken with croup,'" writes Mrs. J. C.  Snider, of Crittenden, Ky., "it seemed  it would strangle before we could get a  doctor, so we give it Dr. Kings New  Discovery, which gave quick relief and  permanently cured it. We always  keep it in the house to protect our children from croup and whooping cough.  It cured me of a chronic bronchial  trouble that no other remedy would relieve."

He  struggled valiently to give Sir Charles  Tupper a certificate of. character for  self-sacrifice, party loyalty and patriotism hut the effort exhausted him and  he retired at 10:45 after, making as  strong a plea as could possible be made  for. the Conservative side; The few  at the rear of the hall and in the gallery .made their departure and the  great Conservative rally came to a  close. . y .������  The same afternoon a meeting was  held at Midway, y Only a few were  present who were addressed by Messrs.  McNeill and McDonald. -  W. C. T.  U. CONVENTION  Chilli-  Federal politics do not awaken much  enthusiasm in Greenwood, A provincial or municipal political contest  will fill the Auditorium, but on Thursday last, A H. McNeill, the Conservative nominee, was introduced by Chairman Shaw to row after row of empty  and uuappreciative seats in from: and  a handful of equally undemonstrative,  people in' the rear. Seated on the  platform with Mr. McNeill were: H.  C. Shaw, chairman; Clive Pringle,  Jas. Kerr, J. P. Myers-Gray, W. A.  McDonald, of Nelson, and R. B. Kerr,  representing the Liberals. By an  oversight a labor speaker was not invited and towards the, close of the  meeting a labor representative drew  attention to this fact.  Mr. Shaw wasted no time, in the  preliminary introduc*ion. He brought  .Mr. McNeill to the notice of the audience in a few well chosen words and the  Conservative candidate made ; his  maiden speech in Greenwood. Mr.  McNeill is any thing but a good speaker  and handicapped by a poor cause he  cou'd not awaken any enthusiasm. He  proclaimed; his party fealty; from  "alpha to omega he was a Conservative.  There was no room for a third party  in this country. He claimed that the  Liberals had broken all'their pre-election pledges, had increased the national debt and the expenditure. He  referred to the appointment of the  -Chinese commission- and maintained  it would be useless because* on one  side was "Ralph Smith in" favor of  Chinese exclusion and on the other  was D. J. Munn whose canning interests demanded Chinese labor. He forgot to mentron that both sides were  thus represented and a perfectly neutral man-was oh the commission, R. C.  Clute, who was instrumental in settling  the lat3Dr*tr-oTl--��le"*in Rossland. He" referred to the Yukon administration,  emerge:ncy rations, the leara industry  andasked that the Liberal government  be defeated because a report appeared  in the Rosslalnd Miner that the. government telegraph line had overlapped  100 miles. He said that it was always  the policy of the Conservative party  to. grant fair redistribution and closed  by stating that he. would not take up  time to discuss issues pregnant to the  campaign. ..  R.B. Kerr "cautioned the audience  against making any. change unless  they were perfectly convinced the  change would be for the better. He  graphically described what Sir Wilfrid  Laurier had done for the Canadians.  '���Sir Wilfrid J_/aurier," said Mr. Kerr,  "a man whom Conservatives love as  much as they hate their own leader,  ���Sjr_ Charles ^Tupper." , The audience  roared . and even the Conservatives  showed they appreciated the shot.  "Mr. McNeill," continued Mr. Kerr,  "says it was merely by good luck that  Canada prospered as soon as the  Liberals came into office. If the country remained dormant during 18 years  of Conservative rule and by good luck  jumps forward as soon as the Conservatives get out of power, then the Conservative party was hoodooed by provA*  dence to such an extent that it would  be unwise to send them back to power."  (Cheers and laughter.) Mr. Kerr referred to the preferential tariff and  ������ other reforms in the'tariff which Mr.  McNeill had characterized as dishonest  ��� but which he called statesmanship.  (Hear, hear.) He told about what the  Liberals had done for labor and closed  ' by pointing out that the Liberals were  * united .around a leader whom'they  loved, while the Tories mistrusted  Tupper and the Tupper family. Of  course, occasionally,   Tories  referred  , to Hugh John', the man with the old  nose and they only wished that he had  the old brain. (Laughter and applause.) ........  '. W. A. MacDonald is a better political  speaker than Mr. McNeill. He is an  older lawyer and consequently has less  compunction   about   serving   up Con-  . servative canards about the dreadful  Liberals. The Conservatives had done  everything Tfor British Columbia; the  .Liberals nothing. They had done  nothing for the laboring man.  A, ���.: voice: ��� "What about   the  fair  wage legislation?" Mr. MacDonald.  "Oh, that was introduced to catch  votes." He referred to Barbussa and  agreed, with Sir Charles Tupper that  Laurier's preferential tariff was too  British for him. The laboring men  had a perfect right to run a labor  - candidate in this constituency. The  only promise the  Liberals kept' ras  Report of the Delegate to the  wack Gathering.  The following is the report of Mrs.  Travis, Greenwood delegate to the W.  C. T. U. convention, recently held at  Chilliwack:  "The 17th annual convention of the  "W. C. T. U. was opened on the morning of September 12, at the Baptist  church, in Chilliwack. -Mrs. G. Grant  in the chair.. About SO members being  present. Not being able to reach Chilliwack until that evening I can only  speak of that day as it was told to me.  The president's address was delivered  on that day and we shall be able to  read-it later as it will appear in the  annual report. The parliamentary  drill was taken up on that day and I  felt much regret that I could not have  been present. On the"morning of the  second day your delegate was met at  the church door and the greetings  were loving and lasting. It was  pleasant, indeed, to meet face to face  with those whom we had known before  only by letter and after the pressure of  the sisterly hand all feeling"of strangeness seemed to vanish. In fact I felt  very happy to be lhe Greenwood dele,  gate, as Greenwood enjoys the distic-  tion of having sent the only delegate  from the upper country to any convention in British Columbia.  "One of the things that impressed me  was the beautiful type of womanhood  represented at this convention. I felt  them to be a noble band of women  working for a worthy cause. Our provincial officers are'true women sacrificing selfish pleasures and giving the  best., of their lives "to., the work.. Mrs.  Grant, our provincial president, is  small of stature but large of heart; full  of a desire to see the W;C T.U,  great success.-  :  "One lady said at the convention:  'The president is the head and the corresponding   secretary   is the  heart of  the union.'   And that is, I believe/the  best way to describe our corresponding  secretary,   Mr. -Cunningham.  "After  being re-elected ��_}e thanked the con.  .vention and said; she had to give her  days to he*, home and. children   and so  when the rest were sleeping she would  be writing to ub way into the night.  The work taken up at the convention,  is too broad-a field to discuss tonight.  It includes the legislature,; the reform  work, hospital, miners, juvenile work  and many other branches.   It was decided  that as the cigarette  habit is  steadily increasing, the union should  take   active steps to abolish its  use.  By    forming    active   anti-cigarette  leagues and by an appeal tcrparlament;  also that Bteps  be taken to bring to  justice those who can be foi^nd guilty  of violating the present laws, and that  to do this a sufficient sum be placed-in  the hands of a committee to be used in  a way not to be made public until this  work-8halLiii_^art_be_^ccqmpUshed,_-___-  "The reform work is, I believe, being successfully carried on.   The W,  C.  T. U. owns and supports a refuge  home in Victoria.   Mrs. Spofford, the  manager, told me some of her   experiences in the work, ��*.nd the account was  sad indeed.   We saw the result of the  work done by our ladies in Chilliwack  as it is a prohibition town and in walking on its streets we were not obliged  to  pass  the licensed saloon nor a tottering  victim who  had -one glass too  much."   And they a*e proud that their  beautiful  valley  is   not defiled either  with  the  manufacture or sale of the  'stinging   beverage.'   In some of the  addresses we   werejgiven mottoes for  the use of the W.  C. T. U., one was  'With   Christ to You,'  another,   'We  Can   Triumph   Universally;'   and  we  were told   that to this,  three   things  were    necessary,   'Grace,   Grit   and  Gumption,' and it seemed tome advice worth keeping in mind.  "Could I inspire you even in a small  degree with the enthusiasm that per.  vaded the conyention I should think  my work in a measure had been a sue.  ces3.  "One of the most beautiful features  of the session wss the half-hour devoted to the life of Frances B. Willard,  the lady who conducted this part of the  programme was a personal friend of  Francis Willard, and told many beautiful anecdotes of her life. One story  was of her visiting-a poor wretched  wc in whose sin had brought her to  the penitentiary, and when Frances  Willard first spoke to her she would  not listen, but soon the.magic of her  voice and manner charmed this outcast woman and she learned to love  Miss Willard and when Miss Willard  left her the tears were rolling down  her cheeks and this noble woman took  her own handkerchief and wiped them  gently away,   afterward  leaving the  Handkerchief as a token of love. - Is  there a place so good or so small whore  thefe aire hot opportunities opened to  us? If we cannot do the great things  Francis Willard did perhaps we can do  some of the small things as she did,  is it hot written, 'Inasmuch as ye did  it unto one of the least of these my  breathern, ye did it unto me.' There  is a broad field "before us and the  workers are so very few, and yot the  future morality, sobriety and rectitude  of this place depends largely ou its  present institutions. Can we not join  hands and work together for 'God and  Home and Humanity?' We can if we  will 'look to the hills from whence  cometh our.help.' ; -  -���"One of the especial features of each  day was the noontide prayer service,  led usually by some of the delegates.  ..."The closing exercises were especially beautiful. The members formed a  circle, holding hands, and singing,  'Blest Be the Tie that Binds,' and pronounced the 'Mizpah Benediction, after  which Mrs. Grant declared the 17th  annual convention closed.  The evening sessions were open to  all and largely attended. The Rossland union was awarced the prize banner for the most new members and as  they had no representative your delegate was asked to receive it in behalf  of Rossland and the upper country.  The banner was presented on Friday  evening by Mrs. Manson, of England,  With the ending of this meeting came  the close of the convention. The next  day the delegates were driven to the  boat landing, and after many handshakes and regrets and a warm feeling^  at our hearts, we said farwell to the  ladies of Chilliwack.  "It was: a merry party of 30 women  who were carried in the little steamferry  down the Thompson river to Harrison  where with the coming of trains came  'the parting of the ways' and our com  !?m????!!f?i???mmi?i?nii!????nt!i??H???nn??!Hf??f??f????f??f??^  , Head Office aud Works at  Bbiaevhi/e, Ont.
