Well  within view of her dying eyes hung|  the portrait of the late Prince Consort.  In scarcely audible* words the white-  haired Bishop of Winchester prayed by!  her side. With bowed heads the ruler  of the German Empire, and the now  King of England,- and others of the!  family, listened to the bishop's ceaseless prayers. The women of the "royal;  household sobbed faintly; and the men  ihu-fled-uneasily. At 6:30 Sir James]  [Reid held up his hand and those pres-'  :nt knew they had lost their Queen.!  The body of the Queen was eriibalmed|  llast night' and will probably.be taken  |to Windsor Station today.        ..,"' ,  .

Other soverigns  have ruled long in*-Britain but there is  no such:development to chronicle.  The stability of Her Majesty's throne]  was never for an instant in jeopardy  It  was One  of   the   most   gratifyin  incidents   of   her   long feign that her  subjects    never     ceased     to     accord  her   every,  expression   of loyalty arid  [sympathy.     They    made   her     joys  their joys  and  her sorrows their sorrows.   No greater proof of   this- affectionate esteem in which the Queen was  held could be offered than  the national  rejoicings   in   1887 on the occasion 6  the SO years' jubilee, when from every|  quarter.of the Queen's  domain enthusiasm was awakened and eager loyalty]  with   difficulty found adequate expression to voice the force of its sentiments|  and  again  in  1897 -when, enthusiast*  subjects.-' from   every   quarter of   thi  earth gave expression to their thank  fulh ess  that their beloved Queen h ad  reigned longer than any  other British  |sovereign.  .'This-unanimous-  In. every quarter oyer which the Queen  reigned so long and so wisely,-the briefi  announcement was heard with feelings]  of awe and regrets While the gracious!  sovereign had gone beyond the alloteda  number of years, still those who fol-$;  lowed her public, and private, career]  with extraordinary. symp'athy.an.d insight could not but;.feel impressed by  the fact that the good Queen is no  more and that her long and benificent  reign is at an end.  The sorrow of her loyal subjects is]  but natural. What a wonderful reign  it was! When one considers the great  events that have taken place since that  June day nearly 64 years ago when in  the first bloom of youthful health and  beauty, she, who is now no more, took  ;_Kose vows of grave responsibility  which carried with them the charge ofl  a great nation! How well and nobly  the Queen performed her trust is  best evidenced by the devotion and respect in which she was enshrined in the  hearts of her p'eople and the univesal  expressions of regret and sorrow at her  death, after years of usefulness.and  goodness both in her public andprivate]  life7'^""^'"^w"^^~"r"i=:''"^^^~"  In no other 64 years of history havej  changes   so   momentous  taken  place.  The marvellous scientific discoveries,!  the  beneficial  reforms, both political)  and social, and the   extraordinary  ad-  affection on -the  !part of an independent people was. not  [only because she was a good Queen but  also because ; she was a good woman.

At 7:30 o'clock Mayor  Hardy took his seat at the head of the  council board for  the last  time and  seated around him was every member  of last year's council. After receiving  the reports of different officials,passirig  a few-bills and listening to valedictories from Aid. Galloway and the  mayor, both of whom gave utterance  to expressions of good will towards the  new council, the city fathers adjourned  and their places wereitaken by Mayor-  Ele ctJakes and all the members of the  new council, except Aid.

Police  Magistrate Hallett took the declarations of the members and then in a  brief speech Mayor Jakes thanked the  outgoing council for expressions of  good will and suggested an adjournment until later in the week. The  other members of the council made  short speeches each and every one.'  hoping that while it might be necessary at times to differ on questions of  public policy that any feeling in the  heat of the debate would not be carried  beyond the council chamber. An adjournment" was then taken until Wed-  Suesday evening.  .Three interesting reports were presented to the old-council.   Theauditor,  W. E.

The general revenue is credited with  the gross amount of revenue receivable during the year, with the exception of probably a'few trades and dog  licenses which may not yet be collected  and is charged with gross expenses of  running the municipality (except debenture and interest which appears in  another account) during the year, including $7,501.10, incurred in three law  suits of which $2,501.10 has been paid  in cash and $5,000 is still owing oh a  note.

MONDAY, JANUARY 24,   1901.  THE MUNICIPAL CONTEST.  The people are to be congratulated  upon the result of the municipal elections on Thursday last. While there  may have been disappointments, the  electors have the satisfaction of knowing that Greenwood's council-elect is  the best the city ever had. The Times  congratulates Dr. R. W. Jakes upon  his election. The fight was not made  against him because of any unfitness  for the position, but because voluntarily or otherwise, it matters not, he  was associated with those who were responsible for the bad municipal government of the past two years.. He was  elected by a narrow majority and the  Times having confidence in his ability  and good intentions is prepared to give  him every support in carrying out a  progressive policy for the advancement of Greenwood. Thanks to his  opponents iu the-contest, there are  several ab'e men in the council who  will be of great assistance to him in  carrying out many important measures  that will be necessary in making the  city what it ought to be.  While it will be a difficult matter to  convince his opponents, it is nevertheless a fact, that the editor of the Times  had no personal ambition to become  mayor of Greenwood. He went into  the fight to break up the old combination and elect good men to municipal  offices. This has been done by - the  election of aldermen who will-~not  tolerate anything but what is in the interests of the city and he is better satisfied that he is left free to attend to his  own business.  There are, however, matters of public -interest���that-should.be-considered  by the council-elect, and when these  are acted upon, the Times will be satisfied to bury the past. Iu the first place  the police commissioners should be  changed, and one of the objections to  them might just as well be stated in  plain terms. Those who stuff the  voters' list should not be allowed to remain in public office.  Before -the assessment roll is prepared the council should give definite  instructions to the assessor. If the  assessor prepares his roll according to  his transfer book, there will be 37  names placed thereon that should not  be there. The council should insist  that in the preparation of the new roll,  only bona fide holders of real estate  should have their namep inserted.  The importance of this will be apparent  to every one since the assessment roll  is the voters' list at elections where bylaws are to be ratified by the ratepayer*. As a three-fifth majority is  necessary to carry such by-law, the  fictitious holder* of real estate,, those  who have no interest in the city, could  easily defeat a measure that may be of  the greatest importance to the city.  THE MUNICIPAL CONTEST.  To THE Electors:���I thank you for  the generous support accorded me in  the recent municipal contest and also  the members of my campaign committee for the hard and faithful efforts  they made in my behalf.

Furgeson, better known  as Fungus, at his new premises situated at the end of the townsite. Here  he has securned nearly four acres of  land. The genial club secretary has  built a pretty cottage, a stable.chicken  house and a green house, and the glass  house, mentioned last, because this is  the most interesting part or will be  early next spring. The industry which  Mr. Furguson is establishing is yet in  its infancy, but underneath the glass  roof are to be found strawberry plants,  well forward in fresh green leaves,  radishes just through the ground,  mustard and cress, cucumbers,parsley,  lettuces and flowers of all kinds peeping through the wonderful black soil.  "Where .did you get this magnificent  black loom,". was asked by the newspaperman, -'Right here where we are  standing," was the reply. "When excavating I put all the top soil in one  place and since then I had it screened  as you see it. The whole garden is  just like this or better."  "I suppose you think it will grow  anything?".  "Certainly, with water only as a fertilizer, it will grow anything. We can  irrigate from Providence creek, but I  do not think much irrigation will be  required. You see, after August  Providence creek sinks just above here  and the water then runs on bed rock  under the garden and eventually comes  out at the lower end near the Auditorium, so you see we have natural  irrigation."  "The glass house," oontinued Mr.  Furguson, "is 100 by 22 feet. I intend  to keep it warm in all sorts of weather.  The boiler is guaranteed to do this.  Heating the glass house can be'done  very economically. I am hopeful that  the enterprise will be a profitable one  if the people will support me. I have  tried gardening for three years in this  vicinity and beyond the hardy vegetables which the Chinamen grow, I  have never succeeded. Jack frost  comes too frequently during the summer months and destroys tender vegetables, such as sweet corn, French  peas, tomatoes, vegetable marrow; etc.,  so I came to the conclusion glass was  wanted and glass I've got. All these  tender products are imported and  freight and duty will be a big profit.  I intend to grow suitable stuff out doors.  Every inch will be cultivated. I will  require considerable help."  "Will you employ Chinese."  "Not if I know it," was the emphatic  reply. "I can get good white men who  can beat any three Chinamen."  Mr. Furguson his a neat place and  his many friends will wish him every  success in his enterprise.  MINERAL ACT, 1896.  Certificate of Improvement.  NOTICE.

Greenwood   Lodge  Has  Parade and   Banauet  of the Order.  a   Street  -Aims  "Hark! Hark! Ihe dogs do bark, the  Orients .are coming to town," is.what  the g-ood folk of Phoenix and Oram.  Forks are liable to be saying in a short  time. That is when the members of  the Orientals hit the trail for an expansion of business and membership  in these two citieS. The Orientals let  it be said, is the latest and correct  thing to belong to hi fraternal organizations. It is the first product, in its  particular line, of the twentieth century. Its inception was crystalized  one minute after the stroke of 12  o'clock on the 31st day of December,  1900, last past. It was born a vigorous  babe, that 14 days after threw off its  swaddling clothes and mask. After  an inspection by many of the prominent citizens, and in company assembled, it ate its first rueal with  knife, fork and spoon, accompanied to'  the clinking- of many glasses and the  hearty good wishes of its numerous attendants. Not even forgetting the  paternal benediction * pronounced upon  it-by "Jakey" Barrett. Now its off in  the bunch for winning', honors for the  largest fraternal order ever launched  in the woolly west.        -  This fraternal order is. unique in  many respects.' After the payment of  a $2 initiation fee no other dues are expected from its members for the balance of their natural lives. : There are  no sick or death benefits attached;  Neither is one compelled to take out an  insurance policy���except an accident,  and that only to cover the time of initiation. Meetings are held regularly  when called by the High Potentate.  Refreshments are provided at every  gathering so that the work in hand  may not become a physical.strain.  Candidates must be natural born  Bohemians. The order has a membership of S3 of the leading merchant  princes, mining and smelting- magnates and professional and unprofessional makers of a living. Millionaires  are only tolerated until they become  broke. Each member has to provide  three regulation uniforms, for street  wear, such as parades, torch-light processions, etc.; for attendance at court  and for tlie banquetting hall. The  costumes are, however, inexpensive  and strikingly attractive. So much  for the' aims and objects. The ambition of Order No. 1, Greenwood  Orientals is to spread the gospel of good  fellowship and to form a chain of  orders stretching everywhere from the  greatest mining camp the world ever  witnessed in an einbyronic state.  .Tuesday night the members of the  Orientals decided upon a parade and a  banquet*. The former was given on  the streets and the latter in the dining  hall of the Windsor hotel. Both  features were a success. At 9 p; tn.  '_ citizens.meandering  on Copper, street.  shortly before the Curfew rang out it's  sonorous tones from the city hall, were  attracted by "numerous forms clad like  unto Banqtio's ghost. Then came the  clashing of cymbols, the mournful  .wails of the bagpioes and the  flourish  lot trumpets.   "Without  an order  the  " paraders took the'position assigned  them by the High Chief. He was  easily recognizable by his height���6-  . foot .4 inches. Starting from the Windsor theprocesssion marched down Copper "avenue, accompanied by much  music (?) and the frequent-barkings of  timid canines who frightened, speedi'y  sought shelter under the sidewalk. A  description of* the costumes worn is  out of piace. They were mostly of a  light color, slashed with a brilliant red  color and set off by masks of all  colors. The head of the.procession  would enter a. place of liquid refreshment andythe body and tail would follow. No time, however, would be lost  in getting out, for it is a rule of the  order that refreshments of that nature  should be partaken only on a wholesale  scale.. After much tramping in and  out arid the head chief having become  _ thirsty, the.procession headed; for the  feast   spread   at   the  Windsor.    Previous to entry to the dining hall, the  .. street costume was discarded and the  ' banqueting one put on.  .Some SO Orientals and their guests  occupied. seats  at a long table loaded  . down wiT-h'-delacicies of every description. As. a* Special mark of honor to  two .candidates* who have been a<>  cepted for membership, and who wifl"  cross the burning sands nest Monday,  one was made the toastmaster and the  other assistant. At the head of the  board sat Postmaster Frith, at its foot  Police Constable louder. .In. the center surrounded by princes of various  degrees was |Potentate - Chief Prince  Dallas and opposite sat Prince"Shorty"  -unge_*va twenty-dollar change artist.  On each side of each guest sat a Prince.  The guests included Provincial TDar-  raugh, Prof. Kauffman, Alderman  Bannerman, Manager Ketchutn of the  Electric Light company, Dr. Oppen-  heimer, A. Branson and others.  Grand Oriental Cameron,after everyone was seated and the opening toast  sipped, asked the diners to fall to and  enjoy fhemselves. " This was done  faithfully and well for the menu was  excellent. Then came the toast list  and the postmaster arose to the occasion. Princes, potentates and guests,  added fun to the proceedings, story  telling and songs. Previous to the  close, Treasurer Prince Birney gave a  brief history of the organization, its  benefits and its intentions and invited  an addition to the membership list.  This was cheerfully responed to by  the guests' and at the next meeting  some 10 candidates will be initiated.  Sometime before the end of the month,  under the care of Pilot Prince Rodgers,  the members- will visit Phoenix in a  body for the purposes of instituting an  order. Correspondence has now been  opened wiih the "head push" of the C.  P. R. for reduced rates for an excursion to Grand Forks and in time that  place will also have a lodge. ''Pro  bono publico," is the principia of the  Orientals.  TO THE   DEAF.

In its weekly review of the mining  camps the Rossland Miner in discussing the smelter situation has the following to say regarding the converter!  to be installed by the British Columbia  Copper company: "In this direction  the action taken at Greenwood in erect  ing a copper blister converting process, which is a decided step on the  way to a refinery, will also help the  mining situation. The Greenwood correspondent of the Miner has pointed  out that there will probablyobe an iu-  fiux of custom orp from Boundary  mines, but it is extremely likely that1  other Kootenay copper smelters will  avail themselves of the opportunity  and send their matte to be convertedH  and so save a Heavy freight rate. It is|  by no means Improbable tliat the cop  per blister process will be imitated at  other points.
