WANT A BONUS INSTEAD  Of Guarantee of Interest-Terms, of  A2reement to Be Considered at a  Special Metting-Other Business. .  The old subject of ringing the city  bell for _ Sunday services was con,  sidered but on the motion to decide a  deadlock again resulted.  TENNIS CLUB.  .ACK HOME AGAIN  The Greenwood and Phoenix Tramway company ..have submitted a new  agreement to the city. At the regular  meeting of the-council on Monday  niglit F.s J. Finucane addressed the  council, and Clive Pringle, solicitor of  the company,submitted the new agreement-.which will be considered at a  special n.eetiug this w.eek.  Mr.   Finucane  in  bringing the matter   to   the   attention   of   the   Council  stated   that the  company, were   in  a  position to build the tramway, but in  order lo further benefit the   town  they  were*   negotiating along  certain lines  that could not yetbe made public.   Tlie  new   agreeriient    which,  Mr... Pringle  would   submit was more business like  than the old.   Instead of asking for a  guarantee of interest on $100,000 they  were asking for a $50,000 bonus.   The  agreement also stipulated  that active  work must begin witain  30 days of its  passage   and  the tramway completed  within one year.  The council being anxious to study  the clauses of the agreement, the discussion thereof was deferred until a  special meeting which will probably be  held oil Friday next  The annual meeting of the Greenwood Tennis club was held on Saturday,the 30th ult,, at 8 p. m. The following officers were elected for the ensuing year. Piesident, Paul Johnson  Esq., vice presidents, J. W. H. Smythe,  Esq., and A. Laidlaw, Esq.; secretary-  treasurer, J. P.

Last week's record a the Greenwood smelter has again been  broken. On Monday last 402 tons of ore were treated in 24-hour:, or  21 tons more than that of the record-breaking day last week. For  week ending Monday, the world's record for a 300-ton furnace was  also broken, the total tons of ore treated being 2,700 tons in seven  days.   The best record made at Grand Forks for one week was 2,100  tons, although the furnace there is 10 inches longer and two  inches  wider than at the Greenwood smelter.  was   a distinguished   member,  deter  mined to present, him with a-sword.    _  The. idea met with instantaneous and  ~  enthusiastic approval'when it was first  suggested, and the subscriptions were  correspondingly   liberal-  as   a   consequence.   The sword purchased was a  very handsome one, and it was  determined   to  make the presentation of it  an event. But the best laid plans 'gang  aft   agley,'   and so  it was on this occasion.   On the evening-selected  for  the' ceremony the committee formed  themselves together properly, befrock-  coatcd   and-coated   and  all   ready   to  hand over the sword a full hour before  the time set for that event.  "The anxiety to do the  thing properly that got them together an hour  too early was the very thing that led to  their undoing.   Time hung heavily on.  on their hands, and in a fatal moment  the rash suggestion   was  madeythat  taking a drink would  be an agreeab.Q  way to pass the time.   Indeed, so  suc-  cesssul   did the idea prove to be as a  time-killer that Lecky, the sword and  the  reason   why   they were together  passed for the nonce out of the .united  rhind   of   the   committee.   Nine came  and went and Lecky waited.   Finally,  .the sword not coming to him, he went  to  the sword, that is, he started to go  to the sword, but got no further than  joining the party, when straightway  that strange forgetfulness of the why  and wherefore of their being together  on that particular occasion overcame  him   also,   and   he   gave   no  further  thought .to  the  sword.   B. T. A. Bell '  had been chosen to present the weapon  to   Lecky,   and during the festivities"  where he   went the weapon went too.  The   evening  waxed and waned, and  the   party broke up into  groups.    A'  friendly scuffle ensued, in which Bell's  frock coat was split  up the back.    He  1 said afterward that to save the sword  I he lost his coat.   He couldn't use his  hands because of guarding the sword,  and that was why his raiment was rent.  After this catastrophe Bell concluded  that the proper time had at length arrived to pull off the presentation, and  he proceeded to do it in' style.---Waving  the sword over his head he'danced up.'  to   a group, 'Is Jack Lecky here?' he v  demanded.     'He  is,'    responded   the  owner of the name.   Then, Jack,'said  Bell, cheerfully, as he handed over the  cause" of all the trouble,  'take  your  blankety blank sword, for I'm/tired of  carrying   it round. '"..After- so .formal  and ceremonious a cfiristening Lecky _  could do'..aught but put it to the good  use he did in South Africa."  Lieut. Leckie left on ,_Monday for  Republic where he will remain for  sometime.

As   ia  generally known  a number of  townsites ou the West Fork were placed  on. the market last year, but owiug to  there being no crown grants issued for  the land, considcra.ble~~diffl.cuHy arose.  The owners of Rendell have -secured ar  crown grant from the government for  the   Bell   pre-emption   and   are   now  ready to give perfect  titles for lots in  the   townsite.   They .have   appointed  .Gaunce & Wickwire their agents and  a heavy sale is expected.   Rendell is  situated at the mouth of Beaver creek.  It   is  surrounded by. many  of the big  mines of that locality, among them being the Washington and Idaho,  Sally,  Rob Roy, Wellington,  Bounty  Tiger,  King Solomon,Spingfield and Duncan.  It is the natural distributing point for  the West Fork country and is the point  from which the wagon  roads   diverge  to the different  mines.    Rendell is ou  the route of the West Fork railway.  Last  year  an hotel   and store  were  built and other   improvements made  and the owners intend immediately to  expend considerable money in grading  the principle streets and otherwise improving the town.

In speaking to a Times representative Lieutenant Leckie gave informa-  .tion concerning the other Greenwood  boys   who  joined   Strathcon's Horse.  Bob Palmer was wounded in  the foot  atGeluk Farm last fall and  invalided  home.    Lieut. Leckie saw him in London fully recovered and he was looking  for a commission in the South African  constabulary which he was likely to receive.   O'Brien,  teller at the Bank of  Montreal hereT"was~shot through- the  arm last December.   He also recovered  and came home with, the   troop,   remaining  at  Montreal where he will  again   join   the   bank's staff.     Alex.  Shaw, a nephew of C. iE. Shaw of this  city,   escaped free and will join the  South African constabulary.  Lieut. Leckie is loud in his praise of  his men all of whom were from Kootenay and Boundary. They, had pluck,  grit and brains aud any success that  was obtained was due to their efforts.  The troop were kept scouting the  greater portion of the time they were  in South Africa and while they were  in but few heavy battles they weref ur-  nished with plenty of excitement and  hard work. Lieutenant Leckie has  many trophies of the war, among them  a rille taken from a wounded Boer.  He also prizes a handsome sword presented to him by the members of the  Canadian Mining Institute before his  departure for South Africa.  Iu connection with the presentation  of this sword a good story comes from  the east. Says the New York Tribune:  "Richard Alexander, of Montreal, in  speaking the other day at the Waldorf-  Astoria on the part taken by the Canadian troops in the Boer war, told an  amusing story.  "One of  the lieutenants in Strath-  con's Horse,"-said Mr. Alexander,"was  a   great   friend  of mine named Jack j  Lecky.   Strathcona's   Horse,   as   you  know,  made a great record for themselves.   Lecky  got   a D.  S." O.

Those who had charge of the organization   of   the   delegation   from   the  Eastern British Columbia  Boards   of  Trade  to   Ottawa are responsible for  the only partially representative character of the delegation and  the diversity   of   opinion   that    exists   among  those who left Kootenay  Landing, on  April  6th.   It  was understood  at the  outset that the delegation was to go to  I Ottawa for  the  purpose of discussing  with   the   Dominion   government   all  matters of a federal   nature considered  by the Associated  Boards of Trade at  the annual meeting held in Greenwood.  The delegation was for a. similar purpose as the one sent to Victoria to dis-1  cuss matters of a provincial character  with thc local government.   Had the  delegation been organized along these  lines every board of trade  in  Eastern  British   Columbia   would ��� haye   been  fully  represented  and  the delegation  would have  accomplished much.    But  apparently      the     organisers      were i  influenced   by   the    paltry   reduction  made by the C. P. R. in fare to Ottawa  and   return   and   as   a  quid pro quo  undertook to stifle the voice of the people on railway and other matters.   Indeed,, one   prominent member stated  that a condition  precedent to the delegation's going at all via the C, P. R.  ���was that railway and labor questions  were  not to  be discussed at Ottawa.  Without suggesting that the opinions  of the Kootenay  and Boundary business men could be changed .by reason  of a cheap trip to Ottawa, we do think  that if such were the intention of the  C. P. R., the reduction made was very  niggardly  indeed,    A fare of $50, exclusive of sleeper and dining car, from  Kootenay   to  Ottawa cannot be con-  DIFFICULT1ES ADJUSTED.  The city council have arranged a  settlement of the Miller Bros', suit  against the city for $1,450, each side to  pay its law costs. This suit was pending for some time. Miller Bros, sued  the city for $5,000 damages to' their  property and business on account of  altering the grade on Cpper street.  Another difficulty which the present  council had to consider was a number  of claims for lands expropriated to  open the alley between Co'pper and  Silver streets. This matter is also in  a fair way towards settlement so that  in a short time, it can be confidently  expected that Greenwood will be free  from legal entanglements that have  done much in retarding its progress  and imparing its credit.  -���i.i.-. ii ^iii    _���-,.., .j. ,Jfc. _.-^w;y^^��^'nT_i.___..l-l_'1v---.|-frff--JTl._ __ ni*, in n %^���_  cf*\ : ~ ������I  Established In 1836.

Offices: Over Bank of Montreal, Greenwood.  Dr. R. W. Jakes, provincial officer of  health, is to be congratulated upon the  energetic methods used in preventing  a spread of the smallpox contagion and  also on his professional acumen in  properly diagnosing the disease. This  mild type of smallpox has been epidemic in the province and elsewhere  for nearly two years. It is of such  mild type that medical meu have been  slow to properly diagnose the disease  and the contagion allowed to spread  before a proper quarantine was  established. Dr. Jakes, however, took  h*>ld of the matter at the outset with  the   result   that   the   disease has not  spread.  In doing this he received valuable assistance from some of  the medical men at Phoenix,  and__,iJDr_.__I_Sclion!,.__ the city health  officer, who took all reasonable" precautions to prevent the dread epidemic  securinga foothold iu Greenwood.  In this connection, it is only right  that a protest should be made against  those who insinuated that the scare  was started by  medical men for mer-  1  COMPANY.  LIMITED.      R. GREIGER, MGR.

ASK FOR  ments are armed with sufficient power  to guard the interests of this province  without loading the charter with  useless restrictions.  It   would be a mistake to burden a  railway   charter   with   any  provision  about   servinjg one  market before another.    Such   provision  could have no  ���effect except to hamper  an   enterprise  that  must  enter a field in which competition, is already keen.   If the Crow's  Nest Coal   company should disregard  the interests of the Dominion or province it can be brought to time on short  notice with an export duty or a special  royalty.   It must.be allowed to enter a  competitive  field  without any restriction other than the need of caring for  Canadian  interests   and   maintaining  .the  good  will  of the province or Dominion.   The company  must be in a  position to make  time  contracts with  American consumers, otherwise it cannot   reasonably   expect   to secure its  share of ^.the  trade.    If obliged, when  soliciting   contracts,   to-approach  the  best customers with special exceptions  regarding  an  impossible clause  in a  railway ^charter it would be severely  and needlessly handicapped.   It must  be as free as ��� its, competitors in contracting to supply. all consumers and  any restriction that could be incorpor-  porated-iri   or made conditional on a  railway'charter would simply restrict  business while serving no^good pur-  *'���' ' ..___.,,.  ur ���-.������ ::   .:.
