"The party had to leave earlj  Wedueseay morning by a freight in  order to reach Rossland in the afternoon and consequently their stay was  brief in the city, but every member of  the party promised to return again  when they could spend a greater time  in Greenwood. , .

President Galloway welcomed the distinguished visitors to _the city. Tht  meeting was different froin those Mr.  Sifton had been recently adressing, in  as much as it was non-political, the  Board of Trade wished to draw his attention to the requirements of tlie city  so that hejuight use his good offices in  their behalf. Mr. Galloway then  quoted figures to show the large  amount of business ��one by the "post-  office aud custom house in this city,  that the government were paying a  large sum annually for rent and thai  the money thus expended would more  than pay interest on a building such as  would be required in the city. .  Hon. Mr. Sifton in rising to reply  was greeted with applause. He was  glad, he said, to meet the representa  fiver business men of the growing and  enterprising town of Greenwood. He  had been informed of the enormous  mineral resources of this district and  he_was_glad_of the opportunity to__vish  the district.

(Applause.)  He pointed out the prejudice in theeast  against giving much to the west but  he would return more enthnsiastic  than ever and while he was a poor  r.and at making promi_.es, he would  .ay io the representative business  men ot Greenwood that he would do  ins utmost in their behalf. (Applau.e.)  Senator Templeman was glad to be  in Greenwood. He only wished that  Hon. Mr. Sifton and other members of  tne cabinet would delegate the powei  to hnn-diid he would vety quickly meet  the requirements of tlie Greenwood  Board of Trade. (Hear, 'hear.) ** He  oelieved in the west, he believed in the  resources of this province. He regretted that he had not been able to visit  Greenwood before aud also regretted  that his stay was to be so short. ~*He  nad met many old friend-, in Greenwood and he would have liked to remain  here for a few days. He wished to tell  the Greenwood Board of Trade that he  was a "senator at large" and they  were all his constituents and if they  .vanted anything at Ottawa that they  could command him at anv time. (Applause ) He would always be ready  and willing to do his utmost towards  securing anything needed in the building up of this euterprising_city and  this great district.    (Applause.)^    ���.  H. C. Shaw moved a vote of thanks  to the distinguished visitors. In seconding the motion, J. R. Brown drew the  minister's attention to the need of another county court judge in this district Mr. Sifton in reply stated that  Just as soon as the provincial government notified- the Dominion government of the apparent need of an additional judge in this district, he felt  ��ure that the judge* would be provided.   The meeting .then adjourned.  f   It   was   cold   at   the Auditorium ou  {Tuesday night when Hon. Mr. Sifton  and  S.   S.  Taylor, Q. C., addressed a  large audience.   Even Liberal enthusiasm   will *go  down in an atmosphere  [Where a thermometer cptild  not struggle above., zero point.    Manager Hart  gSrehemently  declared  that the turnai_e  down   stairs was red hotr, but none of  |he   heat    reached    the   Auditorum.  -There, were  a large number of ladies  (present but the majority of them were  forced by the cold to withdraw   before  ���the meeting was terminated.    It  was  ^unfortunate that the theater should be  so uncomfortable as the speeches, particularly   that   of   the Minister of Inferior, were well  worth  hearing.    Mr.  .Sifton did not  attempt any spell-bind-  Aug or oratorical display, but the argu-  -teuts. as'advanced by  him   in Simple  plain   language,   were  simply incon-  trevertable.    He was suffering from a  cold   himself,  and this, together with  the condition of the tiu__diug,sliortened  his- speech.    In  the absence of Mayor  Hardy  at Phoenix, Duncan Ross took  the chair.  As a "curtain raiser" the chairman  intradueed Senator Templeman, of  Victoria, who made a- short address.  He slated that he had been making a  tour of the Yale-Cariboo and that all  over there was a strong sentiment in  favor of the return of Mr. Galliher.  He thought that the British Columbia  delegation at'Ottawa, was not strong  enough and that this constituency was  alone entitled to thiee representatives,  mstead of one, and for this reason regretted that tne census could not have  been taken betore the election, instead  of in 1901. The latp member, Mr. Bos-  cock's non-appearance in the political  arena was a cause tor disappointment  as. he was a spieuded representative.  In his place the speaker strongly urged  **he electors to send Mr. Galliher to Ottawa to support-the other western  Liberals in oolaming for this country  public improvements, idihoads, public  buildings, etc., for he knew that the  government was heartny in sympathy  in trying to advance the development  of the west, especially this province.  The policy inaugurated four years ago,  he thought was the corieci one in the  upbuilding of the west. In conclusion  he reminded his audience that he was  a Senator at large for the Province and  that he would at any tune be only too  pleased to advance the interests of  Greenwood at Ottawa if called upon to  do so.  .(Applause.)'-.. ���  '. .'  S7S. Taylor, Q. C.y of 'Nelson'..was  the next speaker.' He opened his address by acknowledging- the compliment paid those on the platform by the  presence of so many ladies, on such a  bitterly cold night. He reviewed the  results of the campaign, saying that  the people of Canada had spoken in no  uncertain manner by returning the  Liberal party to power by a larger  majority than bef ��re, showing that the  people had appreciated the actions of  the government. He attributed no  small part of }hc country's prosperity  and marvellous progress to the administration of affairs in a businesslike  manner as well as to the fiscal  policy of the govenment. In  support of this contention he enumerated briefly seve-ial acts introduced by  patliment, especially dwelling upon  the reforms c-irried out by the Liberal  party for the benefit of the working  classes. He said the part}* had been  accused of making love to the Labor  interests, t6 which he would plead  guilty, claiming thai iu the past the  Liberals had fought for the working-  men when the Conservatives would  not help them. In return for this, the  workingmen had voted to support the  government all Over the country, and  so far as:this constituency was con  cerned he believed they would support  Mr. Galliher. Mr. Taylor- instanced  what the Laurier government had done  in the way.-of legislation, citing the^  Alien Labor Act, passed to prohibit employers bringing in contract labor in  competition with Canadians. That the-  govertiment was sincere in the carrying out of this act was shown by the  appointment of Mr. Bremner of Silver-  ton and Mr. A. D. Williams of Eastern  Canada, both union men, to enforce it.  Another matter discussed was the current wage resolution. He reminded  workers that in the appointment of  Boards of Conciliation and Arbitration  the government had agdin shown the  interest. He believed that within two  years the Natal Act of New Zealand  would be on the statute book, so that  compulsory arbitration would be made  possible. He dealt on the Chinese  policy which was frought with many  diplomatic dangers, and argued that a  Chinese exclusion policy could not be  perfected until the whole of the edst  was educated up to the pointof seeing  the real necessity of the stoppage of  Oriental immigration. A beginning  had been made when Mr. Laurier,  agaiust tremendous opposition, had  succeeded in'raising the tax to $100.  He made a point by suggesting that  the permits granted to Chinese to return to their country on a visit, with a  view of re-entry into Canada, should be  abolished, and that they be made to  pay a tax on their return. In closing  Mr. Taylor said the Liberal party was  entitled to the support of the laboring  classes, and made a strong appeal to  that element not to antagonize the  party by sending down to Ottawa an  Independent member, but to send Mr.  Galliher, who was endorsed by the  government.  The Chairman, in introducing the  Honorable Clifford Sifton, Minister of  the Interior, took occasion to pay him a  compliment, by saying that the honorable gentleman was "the best abused  man in Canada today." Mr. Sifton  appeared to disadvantage by rsason of  suffering from a severe cold, which  was, to say the least aggravated by the  absence of any heat in the hall. Towards the end of his'soeech many were  forced to ieaye on this last account  and so inturrupted his speech. He  commeucea with stating that as Minister of the Interior he held an onerous position in the Cabinet as he waa  supposed to know everything of that  portion of the Dominion stretching  from the great lakes to the Pacific  ocean. Since he came into office he  was happy to state that the west had  grown both in wealth and popu ation,  which was a matter of congastutation  to his department. Speaking of the  system of government under which  Canada is ruled, he pointed out that it  really placed enormous power in one  man���the premier, who could pick his  colleagues and to a large extent had  the direct control of what legislation  should be introduced. Sir Wilfrid  Laurier having been returned to power  the question in this,' constituency  was  should he be entitled   to   their   confidence also in the election of Mr.   Gali-  her.   He proceeded to show how, under  the   British    Constitutional     system,  govern mint was'impossible except by  party, and therefore to gain anything  one would,naturally side with the party  who was most  in   acoord   with   one's  principles, and   therefore   would   not  advance one's.interests by   electing   a  man not in accord   with   the   government in power.  He spoke of Mr. Foley  saying at Grand. Forks,   on   Monday,  that   the   legislation   that   had   been  passed in the special- interest   of   the  labonngmeu had been simply   passed  to catch votes.    Well, all he could say  was that it would be foolish   then   for  the working classes uow that they had  obtained, in a measure, the legislation  they ask for from  the   Liberal   party,  to turn around now  and   oppose   that  party, as the only way to get this   necessary legislation was   by   getting   it  from one of the two parties���the party  in power.    Mr. Sifton deprecated   the  idea that his coming to   this   constituency   was   because   the   government  attached great importance to the election of a Liberal here. He came simply  because he desired to see  "the-country  and secondly that the   candidate   who  is supporting the government was entitled to his support as   the   representative of that government.    He then reviewed at some length the administration of Mr. Laurier's government   for  the past four years, pointing out that  his administration of affairs had been  endorsed by the Liberal party   being  returned to power, not only with large  majorities   in   Quebec,   but in  every  other province' with the   exception  of  Ontario.   So far as Quebec was concerned, and it was only natural to suppose that as the premier was a French  Canadian they'were intensely proud of  him,   the   discussion   that took place  there previous to   elections,   was not  upon the trade policy   or the   railway  policy   of the   government,   but upon  one subject only, that of the Imperial  policy of Sir  Wilfred Laurier.     The  leaders of the   Conservative   party in  Quebec has attacked him  there on the  grounds   that   he,   Laurier,   was   too  British and had betrayed the  interests  of   the   French Canadian.   What was  the effect ? asked the speaker.    It was  that  the  citizens of Quebec resented  the   slur  cast   upon the premier, and  that so far as they were concerned they  intended to stand by him, which they  did at the election in au overwhelming  majority.     (Applause.)    He  said   the  government   had   been most violently  attacked for its administration of the  financial  affairs   of   the country, yet  there was not one single instance that  extravagance   could. be   pointed* too.  He laughingly referred to the editorial  opinion  of the. Toronto  World when  it   asked   all   Tory papers   to  agree  on      a     certain.      amount   that   the  Grits would  expend   while  in   power  instead .of. ranging   it   all   the  way  forty millions to seventy-five millions  the     last ������ amount      he        believed  was       among       the      columns      of  a     paper    evide'ntally edited   by Sir  Charles Tupper.    (Laughter.)   Speaking of the finances of   tlie country, he  explained* that   it  was   divided   into  into   two    classes,     annual     expenditure and. capital expenditure, while  expenditures on railways, canals, public buildings, etc., were'chargeable to  capital    account,     the   interest   was  ohargeable.to the annual  expenditure  account.   Capital expenditure could be  curtailed, but annual expenditure was  a   necessity.   When  the Conservative  government went out of power in 1896  the expenditure for that year amounted  to    837,500,000,     while    last   year   it  amounted to $42,500,000, and the party  has been branded as extravagant.   His  explanation was simple.    In 1896,when  the   Conservative   party was in power  they   made   no appropriation  for the  militia or for the maintenance of public thoroughfares, etc., and  their  estimates brought down were  only for the  main expenditure for the  first  half of  the   year and did not include the supplementary   sums    afterwards   found  necessary.   Mr.  Foster,  however, had  prepared the supplementary list and in  it   was   found  that he had provided a  sum   exceeding   S43,000,000,   which in  1896 the Conservatives would have expended   if they had been returned   to   ,  power. On the other hand the Liberals  who  had  been   in power  for the past  four yeais had never in a single year,  expended   a sum approaching this  by'  half a million dollars.    He proved conclusively   that the   expenditures   had  not   increased when considei ing how  largely the domestic and foreign trade  of the country had grown.    Referring  to   the   governments's   policy on the  railroad question,  he cited the case of  the Intercolonial, how that up to the  time the time the-preseut government  came into power this road which  had  cost   the country $55,000,000, had not  paid a cent of interest and during many  years   did   not   pay   its   running ex  penses by, some $200,000 yearly.    Since  1896 the road has been extended into  Montreal   and that though the yearly  expenditure necesssary to secure this  extension   amounted   to  $750,000, the  road itself was not "only paying all expenses but was paying the country an  interest  on   the... investment, in other  words   it   has   relieved 'the taxpayer.  The expenditures  in the Yukon territory was next taken up.   It costs Can-,  ada,  yearly   for   the:, past three years  the   sum   of $l,200j000 to develop that -  country, etc., but.during this time the_  treasury had received from the Yukon .  $4,600,000   or   slightly over $_-,000,000  more   than   it   has expended.    As to  Canada's  foreign   trade���its   imports  and   exports���he   showed   that-for 18  years during the Conservative regime  it had, only amounted'to $3,750,000 year  ly, but that during the past four years  it   had   jumped  up'to the rate of $35,-  000,000   yearly, -proving,   he thought,  that the administration of the affairs  of   the   country-yin   the hands of the  present government had been fruitful  of excellent results.    Speaking of the  development of theT^riatural resources  of  the country,  he. went on record by  saying, that no financial sacrifice was  too great for this purpose.    He heartily believed in an active policy in this  respect   as it would provide work for  Canadians instead of letting them drift  accros>S"the line where plenty of opportunities   were   also offered  in the'upbuilding of that country.   Every inducement  should, therefor be brought  to keep citizens;,in this countrj* and it_  could only be done by developing its  great   natural   resources.     He  closed  with an appeal to the electors to  vote  for Mr.  Galliher  and to thereby show  their confidence in: the gouernment.  A. L. Sifton, M.L.A., addressed a  well attended meeting at Phoenix  where he delivered- a strong speech  and was liberally appla uded.  WORK.WAS STOPPED.  Work on West Fork Road Stopped by  Order of Government.  The Dunsmuir government has  broken faith with the. people of Boundary and the West Fork. Members of  the government and the public works  angineer authdriz��d'Mr." C. M. Shaw  to build the road. Upon this assur  ance, Mr. Thruston of tne Carmi mine  gave a contract for hauling 1,500 tons  of ore to Mr Munsbn, and Mr. Munson  went out to buy 100 head of horses.  Goods were ordered on the strength of  the government's promise and mining  machinery was also purchased. Mr.  Shaw purchased for the government  the necessary tools and supplies to  complete the entire road, and was doing the work in sections to  speedily secure its construction.  Bridges were started and everything  was running smoothly when a telegram ��� came to Mr. Shaw to stop all  work as soon as the appropriation was  exhausted. As the appropriation had  already been exceeded some $3,000  Mr. Shaw came to Greenwood to make  further inquires. The Board of Trade  met ou Saturday and wired pro-'  tests to the government and the  only answer so far received was from  Finance Minister Turner that the appropriation cannot be exceeded.  The stopping of the work at the  present time entails a serious loss not  only to those interested in the West  Fork but to the government. It would  cost a good deal more to complete the  road at some future time than now,  when camps are established and everj-  thing ready to go on with the work.  Completed sections of the road are not  connected so that the portion built is  but of little value to those wishing to  do business on the West Fork.  Comfortable furnished rooms.

Eighteen years of rule has unfortunately imbreed the the partizan Con  servative with the idea that they have  a special dispensation from Providence  to retain perpetual power in this country and when they are defeated, they  do not take the whipping in a proper  spirit,. but are prepared to go the  length of smashing confederation in  their rage. The habitant of Quebec is  the victim of their fury after the late  contest. He is disloyal7 he is anti-  British, he is everything that is bad.  He is execrated and should be 'annihilated.  .All this because he dared to give the  Liberals a majority. The Conservatives have started a radical cry because  they feel sere over their defeat;; As  good loyal "patriotic Canadians 'they  should take lessons from the conduct  of Liberals during their eighteen years  of adversity. Did the Liberals denounce the French Canadians when ia  1872 they gave Sir John McDonald 12  of a majority and his total tnajority  w is only 6? Did the Liberals denounce  the habitant when he refused to give  the Liberals a majority in .1874, although they carrricd the Dominion by  over 60 of a majority? Did the LiberT  als rage when in 1878 Quebec snowed  them under and gave over 20 of a majority to the Macdonald government?  or in 1882 when the Conservatives  -^cured ajnajqrity of 31 in the French  province? T.ie truth is that tfieCon^  servatives have themselves to blame  ���for the recent result in Quebec, Hot  heads like.Billy McLean, Clarke Wallace, the Toronto Mail and Empire and  Montreal Star started a crusade  against the French Canadians, hoping  thus to carry Ontario. The result was  inevitable. Even Conservative Frenchmen * like J. G. Bergenon went down  before au English speaking Liberal in  au all French constituency.  The Toronto-Globe, in discussing  the ravings of embittered and disappointed Conservatives, closes with this  fervent appeal in the interests of the  country:  "To those who have been temporarily  misled by these cries, we appeal, not to  help a party, but to save a nation from  the calamities of disunion, jealousy  and ill-will. To all Conservatives who  ch.rish the memory of Sir John A.  Macdonald, we bring the reminder that  yo leader ever opposed so sternly the  attempt to divide this community on  racial or religious lines. If he were  living today this agitation would not  by his will proceed for one hour. It is  not for us to give advice to our politi-;  cal opponents; but surely the wisest  among them must feel that the way to  restore the Conservative party is not  to burn, but to build; not to divide, but  to unite: and not to meddle with "any  policy which is fraught with danger,  not to their political opponents, but to  the peace, unity and progress of Canada. A destiny lies before this country which must make every young Canadian glow with pride and hope. Let  us, however keen may be the party  strife, do nothing that may' darken the  prospect. Let our party conflict take  the form not of jealousy and detraction, but of a generous rivalry in pubj  lie service. Thus we may be sure that  each party will obtain its fair share of  the honor and confidence of the country; and thus the country will be benefited by the competition of its servants.  conditions in the elast decide'd-to. ii.1  vest sufficient monejr to place the mine  on a .�����" ' Pping baaiS'. The force at the  Sunset will be increased immediately,  "With a large fclant on the ground we  hope to make a big showing in a short  time."  MUNICIPAL MATTERS.  Thb electors of other cities in the  province have turned their attention to  thc necessity of bestirring themselves  in order to secure the very best material for a municipal council. In the  majority of cities there is nothing out  of the ordinary to interest the elector���  nothing save the always urgent necessity of having the affairs of the municipality wisely and fairly administered.  In Greenwood, thefact that failure has  been written large across the pages of  its municipal"" history, should force  everyone having the interests of the  city at heart, to do his share towards  placing the administration of municipal affairs upon a more satisfactory  basis.  There, is .nothing good to be gained  from, referring to the past, save that  an excellent opportunity is presented  of avoiding similar mistakes iu the  future. The new council has to face  an indebtedness of some $20,000 at the  bank, an impaired credit on account of  judgments against the city and further  suits now peuding. It has to face the  fact that the bonded indebtedness of  the city is sufficiently large or has been  so placed .-that the rate of taxation is  already comparatively high, thata fair  amount of municipal improvements  have not been secured for the money  borrowed, that the town is without a  proper water system for domestic purposes and a sewerage system.  On the other hand it has a sufficient  fire protection in the shape of good  water power and and apparatus, it has  some well graded streets, a fair amount  of sidewalks, and what is more important than all, the possibilities of a  .bright future gives it splendid recuperative powers, which a wise council can  exploit in the interests of the city.  The��*e comes a time in the develop-  ment^'Of every city when individual  prejudices should .be subordinated to  the public interest. That time has  surely arrived in Greenwood. Everyone realizes this and every one should  do his share in seeing that, nothing  which has occurred in the past will influence .'him in the direction of frustrating an organized effort to secure some  thing better for the futute.  -The restrictions imposed by the  municipal act disqualify a large number of capable men in this city. _V number who would make capable members  of a municipal council are disqualified  because they are not-British subjects  while others that have unvested  heavily in the city and consequently  have a material interest in its wellfare  are not eligible for office because ,they  do not hold in their own name $500  worth of real estate. The intent-'-Md*"  of the act was to prevent men' i-*_.__  running., who had no interi_*;''\ -. .he  city, as a matter of fact it often excludes those who have the largest interests^ although^ such -interests may  not be in real.estate.  These restrictions prove a legal barrier to the securing of good mea for  the council but enough remain from  which to secure a..capable administration. It often happens that the electors reject, the ��� best men, and consequently those who have the ability to  properly serve the city best hesitate before offeriug themselves for election.  Greenwood is too good a town, there  are. too many valuable interests- at  stake, to be jeopardized by unwise  municipal administration. Those who  realize this fact should get together  and stay together until a wise and  progressive council is secured.  THE SUNSET.  Mr. A- A. JWunroe, ot Montreal, Tells  About a New Company to Develop  the Mine.  "We are satisfied with the Sunset  group and the syndicate for whom I  am secretary, have ample funds to  thoroughly develop the property." The  speaker was Mr. A. A. Munro, of the  firm of Munroe & Munroe, Montreal.  He arrived here Monday and will  spend several weeks in the district.  Mr. Munroe's firm has acquired all  the properties of the Montreal Boundary Creek company for a syndicate of  strong financial men at the head of  whom are J. W. Greenshields, Q. C,  W. M. Mitchell, a Montreal capitalist;  T. Crockett, manager of the Tamis-  couat Railway, and H. H. Mellville' of  the Northern Pacific. They are organizing the Montreal and Boston company, Limited, with a capitalization of  $3,000,000 divided into $5 shares. The  syndicate are putting up the uecessary  money to place the group on a shipping  basis..

Join Tracks at Rossland.  What was proposed to have been  done" some time since, namely the  -joining of the tracks "bf the two railways running into Rossland, the Canadian Pacific.and the Great Northern,  has at,j last been accnipplished. The  ftrst junction to be made is at the  northen end of -the Great Northern  yard,;.where._the pla'tform dividing the  t O'slnieswiii -be.rempved and'-the rails  ���"brought together. Th is* wilt have the  effect of permitting Canadian Pacific  trucks*, to._;be -.brought on the Great  Northerai.ltn"e and so down tothe Black  Bear and will do away with the necessity' of ;'the new line./whichvis-being  graded "jis; V-CQiitfiiuatiOn of. the track  west oif tlie Centre Star and War Eagle  ore bins, if this was its only reason  for do so. -j.ilt there is another consideration to be taken into account in  the ii.atter-whic.__is that as llie C. P.R,  have now. direct rail ��� communication  not only .'with''the Cenre Star and War  Eagle.but with the;Nickel Plate,L,e Roi  and L/aRoi No.,2and the GreatNorthern  has only communication with the latter and not the former group means  ���are now being pi.6p6i.ed to equalize the  facilities of both railways, This can  be "done oh the extension of the C.P.R.  track west from the War Eagle and  Ceutre Star to the Black Bear building  by putting in a switcli just west of the  Le Roi No 2 gravity tramway on the  GreatNorthern track and connecting  the extension now being made with  this. In this matter the Great Northern will -be able toysupply the War  Eagle" anci Centre Star witli.timber  and othei supplies which until such  time as this improvement has been  carried out they could only obtain from  points along the C. P. R. line.  . Thus the corapl-tion of the new track  is'in the interest of the.Great Northern  and not the Canadian Pacific were it  not for the fact that the latter intend  stretching out their lines in other  ramifications. .An ��� immediate exten  sion will tap the Giant mine.and th'e  Jumbo and beypnd this its continuation up the valley- betv e'en Gold-Hi 11  and Red mountain will bring' the "railway-to the.slopes'of Granite mountairi,  which _at this-point are heavily tim-  bered'and where the n��w cotnpany^prq-  poses erec'ting-another mill in addition  to the other on -Rock creek, six miles  and k littl�� -more along the present  trail, but, /which .will be further/, of  course, along the railway track reich-  to,that point."  Beyond this a'detour ground .the  lower slopes of Green mountains g-*es*  a beautifully even grade^into the upper  basin of Murphy creek and ei_en opens  up the possibility at some future date  of crossing the divide, at-its lowest "at  the t head of Murphy- creek, into big  Sheep creek valley on the route .pfp-  posed for a trolley line which was advocated in the summer'of 1899 as a  means of tapping thc Burnt Basin disT  trict.  In addition it is also open to the C.  P. R. to follow out the line surveyed  by~it some time.since from'the head of  Jumbo creek, along the divide into  the Sophie mountain section.  It is evident, however, that the real  reason for the joining of the tracks of  the competing lines which will hereafter prove.no mean factor in the prosperity - of this camp, was the sudden  swoop of the"surveyors and graders at  the end of last week on the southern  slope of Red mountain' rendering "the  caUses.which.prevented a junction of  the lines no longeroperative.  The" present arrangeriient includes  all the big mines of the camp as regards shipping facilities with the exception of the Kootenay mines, to  which, however, a switch barely a  mile long could be run from the main  C. P.- R. track from a' point on the  northern Y. As the mine is not shipping at present and as the completion  of arrangements for power are not as  yet perfected, as,far as is learned, no  definite decision ha's as yet been arrived ; at. There is an alternative-  route by running up a switch from the.  milk ranch on the Trail road which  would permit jthe shipment of ore to  tha Trail smelter, but the other switch  on the higher level would still permit  of this and would at the same time  open the road to the. Northport and  .SJilica reduction works as well as to the  new smelter, which, as a proposition,  can hardly as yet be said to have,, assumed shape. ' '      ���  Yet another effect of the wedding of:  the tracks is that goods going into  and coming from the Boundary coun-  tay can now be transferred here without breaking bulk;  The proposed system -now being  entered upon is one of the most important that has happened in regard to this  city- since the advent of the. railways  and will-have a great 'effect ~dn the  future welfare of the miues_and consequently of Rosslaud, -���Rossland  Miner. ������'���  Canada consumes 11,000,000 pounds  of colored and doctored Japan green  teas.

MAYOR STILL OBDURATE.  Gives an Exhibition of Bad Temper  and Worse English���Mr- Shaw Insists on Securing the Si_rned Aeree-  met���Other Business Transacted.  A bottle of Scotland's mello-vi'st  liquor, a. box of fragrant cigars with  compliments of Alderman Cropley,  whose absence from his usual seat at  the council board was occasioned  by the fact that he had but recently  joined the Order of Benedicts. These  combined could not cool the ardor of  municipal scrappers. and Monday  'uight's meeting was. but a counterpart  of those held in the good old days  when the actions of the majority of the  Greenwood solons were not directed  by the clauses of the Municipal Act  but bv the ipse dixit of His Worship  Thomas Jackson Hardy. There; was  one difference, . however. Monday  night Mayor Hardy, was alone while  ^eY.ety-_=--ic_nbet^of^t__,e_j_3i^cilprMM.t  endeavored to reason him into sensible  faction.  Aid. Sutherland, Sulliuan and Galloway, together with the mayor, comprised the council. Among- the spec-  ��� tators were- Harry Curtis. Shaw and  Ralph* Smailes, Geo.. H. Collins and  Duncan Mcintosh,and as they do not attend council meetings for fun, it was  evident that something was going to  happen and something did happen. But  the preliminaries were long and  tedious. First came the reading of  the minutes and then communications  One from L.. O. Hooper asking for a  situation on the city engineer's staff  was received and filed and the Knights  of Pythias' application, for a plot in  the cemetery was referred to the  cemetery committee. The street committee reported that the Copper street  crossings had been laid at a cost of S80.  The finance committee reported a bill  for this and also several accounts in  connection with the Waterland case,  including some S272to Andrew Leamy,  S125 to Sidney Johnson, S48 to H. M.  Keefer. Then the alley at the rear of  Copper street was closed and reopened  several times during an hour's discussion. Sometimes there was no alley  at all and it was private property thus  relieving the city of any responsibility  but a by-law expropriating 'the land  rather contradicted this view. Petitions  were unearthed and legal opinions  were ventured but finally th'e alley was  turned over to the city solicitor and  street committee with instructions to  close it, if thev could find authority to  do so. This called to the minds of the  aldermen that no definite arrangement  had been made with the city solicitor  in reference to defending the different  suits against the city and the finance  committee were appointed to cautiously  sound him to ascertain if he was looking for more than his salary of. $50 per  month.  Then Aid. Sullivan directed the attention of the council to the fact that  water mains were likely to freeze and  the city engineer who was present informed the council that there was no  data in���his office to tell the depth cer-  tain pipes were laid. The street committee were given authority to lay  stable manure on top of the pipes to  keep out frost.  Mr.   Shaw  asked  permission  to address the council.  Mayor Hardy���"It depends upon  what you have to say."  . Mr. Shaw intimated that he wished  particularly to address the council in  reference to the settlement of the suit  of Rendell & Co. vs. the city. They  were aware that a settlement had been  reached and that certain documents  were to be delivered to him as counsel  for Messrs. Rendell & Co. For some  reason these signed documents were  not delivered and he wished to. draw  the attention of the council to the  necessity for carrying out their contract. He was told of the reason why  the documents were not signed, but it  mattered little to him what they were.  He insisted on either receiving the  signed docttments or a definite refusal  from the council. He had been told  that the mayor refused to sign the  agreement. Were the council going to  force him to sign or were they not?  He had been humbugged for five or  six weeks and unless the documents  were delivered he would immediately  begin a new action, either against  the city or the individual members of  the council who might be responsible  for the unsatisfactory state of affairs.  He again asked the council if theX  were prepared to give those papers or  not.  Mayor Hardy���"Have any of you  aldermen anything to say on the matter?" -  Aid. Sutherland���"I want to know  what stand you take, Mr. Mayor?  Whydon't'you sign the agreement?"  Aid. Galloway���"Yes, and I wint to  know why. you do not carry out the  wishes of the couucil and sign the  agreement?'"'  "Youse knows as well as I knows  why that note and them articles wasn't  signed," was the mayor's introduction  to a five-minute exhibition of bad  temper and worse "English. "Its a  tlirnsy-excuse Aid. Sutherland and  Aid. Galloway make when they aske  ine why I don't sign. I said I wouldn't  sign till that sidewalk went down and  I'll be as good as my word. And there  isn't enough men in Greenwood to  make me sign either. I didn't kick at  the aniount you wanted to pay thes.e  people,7Rendells and Smailes, and  don't kick now, but this gentleman  "Smaiies, had the audacity or the cheek  to raise that sidewalk to where it is  now arid it has to go down before I  sign. I wrote a letter to the engineer  and told the clerk to deliver it, I don't  know whether he did it or not."  City Clerk Taylor���"I delivered the  letter:"  Mr. Mayor���"Why didn't you lower  the sidewalk, Mr. Alston, or are you  city engineer?"  Mr. Alston���"I am city engineer. I  did not lower il because I couldn't get  men to do. it. I got two men but when  they saw what was to be done they refused tp do the work and I have been  unable to get any men who would do  the work?"  Mayor Hardy���-'Men will be returning from, the West Fork road. Get  them. I'll sign as soon as the sidewalk  is down, but Rendell & Co. an 1 rest of  their kind^ or their solicitor can't force  me to sign. Is that sufficient answer  for you, Mr. Shaw?"  Aid. Galloway said that the committee who arranged the settlement saw  no good reason why the sidewalk  should go down and when the matter  came before the council the council  had decided to not interfere with the  sidewalk. He saw nothing to change  his mind and as a member of the street  committee he would never consent to  lowering the sidewalk until better reasons were, given than those advanced  by the mayor.  Mr. Shaw���I want to get a definite  answer. . Do I get those signed documents or do you refuse?"  Mayor Hardy���"You heard my answer." ���    .-���-..  Aid. Galloway moved that the mayor  sign the agreement with Rendell & Co.  and complete the transaction.  Ald.Sutherland���*'The council should  not consider either Smailes or Hardy  iu this matter, they should see that the  Head Office: TORONTO.  Paid up Capital $6,000,000;  President:   HON. G. A. COI  General Manager:. B. E WALKER.  Asst.General Manager: J. H. PLUMMER  Greenwood Branch  Drafts and.  Money  Orders  sold payable at any "Banking  point in the world.  agreement was carried out. I second  the motion."  Aid. Sullivan ���"Would it not be  more business like, Mr. Mayor, to sign  the agreement first and consider the  sidewalk afterwards?"  Mr. Smiles said that when the committee came to him in reference to a  settlement, he asked that the council  come to some decision in reference to  the sidewalk before the cold weather  came on as in the event of the sidewalk going down changes would have  to be made in their heating plant.  The council gave him their assurance  that the sidewalk would not be disturbed and he left the plant as it was.  If the council were not prepared to  tand by that resolution the fault was  ot his. '  ' The motion was then carried. Mr.  Shaw intimated that he would have  the signed agreement tomorrow else  action would be taken.  Mayor Hardy brooded over the setback- received from the councii and  half an hour later presented the couucil with a written request from Tho_.,  Hardy, as a ratepayer, requesting that  the sidewalk -be lowered. This was  received and filed.  Messrs. Collins and Mcintosh were  present to offer to the city the use of  the certified eheque placed in escrow  by the Tramway company in accordance with the terms of the by-law submitted to the ratepayers. The money  to bear 7 per cent interest while used  by the city. The matter was referred  to the city solicitor.  Corporation of  THE CITY OF GREENWOOD,  MUNICIPAL VOTERS' LIST.
