His Honor Judge Bole held Comity  Court in the city hall, Greenwood, on  Monday and. Tuesday, 18th and 19th  inst. The sitting of the court having  been several times previously postponed a large amount of business had  accumulated, there having been between 60. and 70 cases on the docket.  Among those of interest were the  following:  In tlie matter of II. Mason vs. Snow-  flake Lim ecompany, a judgment summons for Uiis court had been issued  against W. E. Medill who. fornlerly  traded under that company name. Defendant was called upon lo show why  he had neglected tq pay amount of said  judgment. Upon examination it was  elicited that instead of- paying the  whole or any part thereof, he had been  reducing-liability under aichattel mortgage held by his wife and sons. The  court considered this a family arrangement such as it invariably regarded  with suspicion. An order was therefore made for payment on'account of  $25 forthwith and a similar amount  monthly until the debt of $316.81 shall  have been paid, in default defendant  to be imprisoned for 40 days. Medill  was taken into custody by the deputy  sheriff but was afterwards released  upon payment of the first instalment  and that official's costs.  In Clark & Binns vs. Kaake, an interpleader summons which involves  the rights of chattel mortgagees to  proceeds.of goods sold by the sheriff  under an execution following judgment  obtained against W. T. Kaake, the  court made an order that an issue be  drawn up in which the claimants be  plaintiffs, all questions of costs lo be  reserved and that the action be set for  next court peremptorily.  Iu Annie Skjennald vs. M. Berger  and Jos. T. Bedard, Louis Greenwood  garnishee," which was a claim for wages  due to plaintiff as chamber maid at  defendants'- hotel, Bedard, who, was  absent, had not been served with a  summons and-Berger disclaimed responsibility. It appearing that he was  interested in the hotel business the  court held .that plaintiff could not  be expected to ascertain the exact business relations of men advertised as  partners,so judgment wasgiven against  Berger and the garnishee for amount  of claim and costs.  An unusual counter-claim was made  in Guess vs. Cunningham & Andersen,  an action to recover ��8. rent. Defendants admitted that this amount was  due but claimed$100 damages for time  lost, etc., owing.to premises not having  b -en sufficiently heated, as had -been  agr.ed- they should be, *to" admit  of their carrying on their work as electricians and that, first having given  notice of tljeirintention to do so and  failing compliance with their requirements, they were compelled to surrender their lease and to remove their  business to other premises. Judgment  was reserved. ,  Davidson vs. Weeks (Before judge  and jury).���The plaintiff herein sued  the defendant, who was a hotel keeper  at the time of the occurrence, for $300,  OUVENIR of  the B.

The plaintiff deposed that  on the night in question he retired  perfectly sober and on going to bed  placed his pants containing the money  under his head, but did not fasten the  door, as the lock was not in working  order; that there was no notice under  the Iunkeepers's act posted in his  room; and that he was unaware that  there was a safe in the hotel for the  deposit of valuables, and that he had  earned the money,sued for whilst working in the B.C. mine. Defendant, on the  other hand, swore that the lock was in  perfect order, but admitted that there  was no notice posted in the bed room,  and that he had not called plaintiff's  attention to the fact lhat he had a safe  in which valuables might be kept.  The defense was practically contributory negligence. The learned  judge charged the jury at considerable  length and carefully explained the law  bearing upon the subject. The jury,  after protracted deliberation, found  that there was contributory negligence  on the plaintiff's part and so returned  a verdict for the defendant.  Moran vs: Salter���This was an action in. trover for $1,000 damages for  wrongful conversion of plaintiff's  household goods. The .evidence,which  was voluminous and complicated, went  to show that Mr. Moran, the plaintiff's  Tiusband, at one time owned the Hotel  Spokane at Midway, the furniture of  which was solely owned by the plaintiff, Mrs. Moran. Mr. Moran mortgaged the premises to Mr. Mackay  Iiig.rim, but no mention of the furniture appeared in the mortgage deed  and.Mrs. Moran was ho party thereto,  but the tenant,'Mr.'Salter,- appears to  have been allowed the use of the furniture free of cost.; Subsequently In-  grim assigned the mortgage-to Salter  and gave the latter to understand he  was getting the furniture as part of  the _ security, whereas Mrs. Moran  swore that she had never given up her  title-to the furniture to Ingrim or any-  .pne "else, as-In grim-well knew.and; had  told her he did; also that the Value of  the furniture was more than $800, and  it had been bought with her own money.  The court added Mr. Ingrim, who was  preset-tin court, as a defendant. -.At  the ."close- bf the evidence, His -Lordship,''������-remarked--that.-, the' case clearly  indicated that Mr. Salter had no right  whatever to keep the furniture, but at  the same time it was also evident that  Mr. Ingrim had deliberately deceived  Mr. Salter into the belief that he had a  right to convey the furniture. Judgment would therefore go for $300 and  costs, same however, to* be reduced to  $l-aud costs if the furniture were delivered up to Mrs. Moran, which Salter's counsel undertook should be done  within one week from date,Mr. Ingrim,  owing to his improper conduct, to; pay  all costs of the .suit.    J '  His Honor Judge Bole transacted  the business of the court with all dispatch consistent with' full hearing of  the evidence brought forward in the  various cases dealt with. For the convenience of litigants and others from  -P.l_Lc.-_3--9.lLtsi-i^  sitting was held, thereby expediting  matters considerably. The numerous  cases that came before the court demonstrated markedly the necessity that exists for more frequently holding court  in this city and for having a County  Court judge resident in the district.  ~P"  NORTH FORK KETTLE RIVER  THE BUCKHORN  It is announced that arrangements  are in progress for an early resumption  of work on the Buckhorn, in Deadwood  camp. F. H. Moore, of Stewartstown,  New Hampshire, has been in Greenwood for the past three weeks endeavoring to straighcen out the tangle the  affairs of the Buckhorn were left in at  the time work was suspended several  months since. He will leave tomorrow  on his return east. He will la}' before  the management of the company the  result of his investigations and will report favorably as to the promising  nature of the mineral showings he has  seen on the property. Altogether  about 1,000 feet of woik have been done  underground in development of the  Buckhorn, including a 220-foot vertical double compartment shaft with  about 240 feet of crosscutting at the  100-fobt level and nearly 300 feet at the  200. The power plant includes half of  a 10-drill Rand duplex air compressor,  20-horse power hoisting engine, station  and sinking pumps, machine dr_lls,etc.  Miss G. D. Sexton, corset expert of  New York, will be at Rendell's Arcade for three days, April 12th, 13th  and 15th, to demonstrate the merits of  W. B. and La Vida corsets. She will  be pleased to meet ladies who wish up-  to-date and, well-fitting corsets, on the  above dates. ���  The shipment of a little ore during  the past six months from two or three  mining properties situate on the North  Fork of Kettle river has had the effect  of again directing attention to several  groups of claims distant 10 to 15 miles  from Grand Forks. The best known  properties among these are the Earthquake, Golden Eagle, Volcanic, Pathfinder and Little Bertha, on the eastern  side of the river, and the Seattle, Humming Bird and Strawberry, on the  western side. Recently a short switch  was put in on the Columbia & Western railway, its location being on the  Graud Forks Ride of Eholt and between  the latter placeand Fisherman Station.  As there is only room for three or four  cars at a time on the switch it is evident that it i.s not expected that immediate shipments will b.e large. However, it is the intention to send ore to  one or other of tlie smellers from the  Humming Bird���which has already  made several small shipments to the  Granby smelter at Grand Forks���and,  after a bridge shall have been built  across the river.from the Golden Eagle,  Pathfinder and Little Bertha. Of  these the Hummi/g Bird and Pathfinder appear likely to make the best  showing as regards early output. Of  the former, which is reported to have  shipped 600 to 700 tons ore, only this  passing mention will at present be  made, no reliable particulars .of it being just now available to the writer.  The Pathfinder lately resumed work.  There are two double - compartment  shafts on this property, respectively  135 and 125 feet in depth, and about 700  feet of cross-cutting and drifting. It  is stated that there are three main pre  bodies of a somewhat irregular character, partially developed by these  workings- and that these ore bodies  are large low grade masses of pyrrhotite, carrying.gold, silver and copper  and run ning about $15 to the ton. The  formation is porphyry and a diabasic  rockf the ore occurring .seemingly at or  near a contact, in , a"quartzose gangue.  The general indications were some  time since regarded by the Provincial  Mineralogist, some of whose comments  are given above, as favorable to the  finding of considerable bodies of ore.  The manager of the company, when  recently in Greenwood, intimated his  intention to shortly ship ore to the  Standard company's pyritic smelter at  Boundary Ealls. The power plant ori  the- property consists of a 5.0-horse  power horizontal tubular boiler, a 10x24  -straight-line Rand air compressor, a  42x10 air .receiver, two Little Giant  drills, a 6x8 hoisting engine, a No. 5  Cameron sinking pump and a 3x2x3  boiler feed pump. .The mine buildings  include, good: offices, manager's house,  bunk and boarding houses, stables, etc.  FRANKLIN CAMP.  Up the East Fork of the Forth Fork  there is a very promising mineral country known as Franklin camp, which  for size of ore bodies,so far as shown by  the very limited amount of development1 work" dotfey* aiid "^pecimelf "aTMay  values, compares very favorably with  what was known of the older camps at  a similarly early stage. It is not to be  expected though that extensive mining  operations will be undertaken in this  outlying district before it is given  wagon road connection". A trail was  cut out last year to connect with the  wagon road from Grand Forks, but the  construction of the wagon road is an  urgent necessity for the getting in of  mine supplies and machinery, otherwise the mineral resources of Franklin camp must remain undeveloped.  Numerous mineral claims have been  located; and of these the best known  at the present time are the Banner,  McKinley, Glouster and Polard. No  doubt strong representations will be  made to the government so as, if possible, to secure this session an appropriation for construction of the much-  needed road.  A MINING REVIEW.  .  < ....

Its strik-  inadequacy to the importance of the  mining industry of the province���an  industry which, as wis prominently  shown in last week's issue of this  journal, contributed during the year  under review products valued at $16,-  332,061���is regrettable and it is to be  hoped that when the annual report of  the board shall be7publi-.hed the  meagre information given by its late  president will be supplemented by the  inain facts relating to' the mineral  production   of the  province  recently  made public by the minister of mines.  The statements made relative to the'  smelters in the Boundary district are  inaccurate iu several particulars.which  is less excusable from the fact that the  professed writer of the report personally visited the Boundary district not  very long ago. The mining review referred to it as follows:  " With the settlement of the labor  troubles in the Kootenays mining operations at once showed increased activity. .Many properties that had been  either wholly or partially shut down  resumed work and the output of ore  has been largely in excess of that of '  the previous year. In Southeast Kootenay it is interesting to note that we  have the second largest producer of  silver lead ore on the continent in the  St, Eugene, at Moyie, besides many  other promising properties. In the  Slocan district the output has been  largely in excess of 1899. In what may  bytermed.the dry ore belt in the neighborhood of Slocan Lake considerable  development work has been done during the year. In the Rossland district  we also find a great increase of production as compared with 1899, the figures  being 221,900 tons in 1900, as against  180,399 tons in 1899. The values are not  at this writing available, but will duly  appear in the annual report.  In the Boundary district, mining  operations have been very active, the  output of ore in 1900 reaching 101,000  tons  as against practically nothing in  1899. In June last the Granby smelter  at Grand Forks was blown in and it  has since been found necessary to  largely increase its capacity, while  quite recently two additional smelters  have been completed, one in Greenwood, the property of the British Co-,  lumbia Copper company, and the other  in Anaconda, the latter being intended,  to treat pyritic ores, anew departure in  this province.  "The large smelter at Trail has  greatly increased its capacity and now  handles ores from Slocan, Southeast  Kootenay, Boundary and Rossland.  The Le Roi ores are treated principally  ���at 7 their' Northport ��� '��� smelter. This  smelter, has also nearly doubled its  capacity. It handles exclusively B. C.  ores, chiefly those 7 produced by the  famous Le Roi mine;  "It is noteworthy that practically all  the'railways that have been constructed  in the province during the past six  years have been built to serve the mining districts. On the coast there has  not beeri_j.ery great activity in metalliferous mining but there are some  .well known properties of great promise  notably on Howe Sound, on Texada  Island, and at Mount Sicker, V. I.,  which are being steadily and persistently developed, and it is hoped that  the coming year will prove that there  are great.mines on the coast as well as  in the interior. In the. Atlin district a  large amount of placer mining was done**  upwards of one-half million dollars  worth of dust from this promising district having been purchased by the  Seattle assay office between Jan, 1st  and Oct. 24th, 1900.  "Coal  continues   to occupy  a high  place in the list of our natural products  the^output^having^increased from 1,- ~  294,100 tons in '99 to 1,520,500 tons in  1900. -*These  figures  are  exclusive^of  coke." ��� '     ������  - >i*iy  '*_*__  THE WINNIPEG.  -'r*  N. J. Tregear, superintendent of the  Winnipeg mine, was in town on Monday. Whilst not inclined to say much  at the present stage of development of  the mine, he admitted that things  are looking more encouraging now  than at any time during several months  last past. The winze from the 300-foot  level is now down about 70 feet and is  in ore that forquantify and assay value-  is very promising, but more than this  Mr. Tregear will not say just now, preferring to wait to see if further development and additional sampling will confirm present promise. Mr. Plcwman,  managing director, states that thc vein  in the winze has now widened out to 10  feet with eight feet of solid ore in the  bottom. At a depth of 31 feet there  was only two feet of solid ore. Furthermore the values of low-grade ore hav  steadily improved.  REDUCTION IN RATES  Commencing April 1, passenger rates  on the Pacific division of the C. P. R.,  will be reduced from .four cents per  mile to three and one-fifth cents, on  the main line, and from five cents to  four cents on branch .lines. Round  trio tickets at reduced: rates are now  obtainable as well within the division.  These reductions do not apply to the  Crow's Nest Pass line, .which is not in  the Pacific division. Reduced rates on  freight between Okanagan and Kootenay audBoundary pointshave already  gone into effect.  -   ^  -__-?>  L  __<__.  -���"iv March 21th, 190l.  THK GMBNWOOD WKBKL1 TIMES.  _.

Duncan Ross Editor.  THURSDAY, MARCH 21, 1901.  GOOD RESULTS PROMISED.  The committee appointed by the  third annual convention of the Associated Boards of Trade of Eastern  British Columbia, which met in Green  wood ou- 1st and 2nd Gin st., to proceed to Victoria to place before the  government and the members of the  legislature generally a number of the  resolutions adopted by the convention,  appear to have been accorded a  courteous and generally favorable reception at the capital. From the published report of the secretary, H. W. C.  Jackson, upon his return to Rossland,  the following information is taken.  The Minister of Finance promised  that the government will give mature  consideration to the request that 20 per  cent of the royalty on ore mined with  in a municipality be applied in aid of  construction and maintenance of roads  to the mines within such municipality.  This request will either be complied  with or the roads to mines within the  city limits will be gazetted as government roads and be maintained by the  government.  With, regard to the amendment to the  Companies Act to enable joint stock  companies to be reorganized from a  non-assessable to an assessable basis  at reasonable expense, the Attorney-  General said he would look into the  matter thoroughly and if he found that  the recommendations of the Associated  Boards could be carried out without injustice to- the larger stockholders he  would have the Companies Act  amended as suggested.  Respecting representation of thepro-  vince at the Toronto exhibition the  Minister of Mines declared himself  strongly in favor of it, as he also was  of all reasonable schemes for thoroughly advertising the mineral resources of  the province, including the issuing of  frequent 'government bulletins by a  bureau in the department of mines.  As to hasty mining legislation the  Minister said that he was still in f avpr  of the appointment of a commission,  as promised last session, lhat no material changes wonld be made in the  laws affecting metalliferous mining  and that, in all probability, none would  be made except under the recommendation of the mining commission.  Concerning applications for water  rights by corporations under special  charter the Attorney-General and  others said.that they thoroughly agreed  with the position of the Associated  Boards that any bona fide applicant  had every facility required under the  Water Clauses Consolidation Act, so  that acts giving special rights/were undesirable and unnecessary.  The Minister of Lands and Works  promised that the mineral region occupying the Kettle River basin shall  he officially designated "Boundary district," as recommended, and shall be  so named on new provincial maps how  being prepared. In reply to the petition  of the Associated Boards re representation in the provincial legislature and  at least one member for the Boundary  district, the mihisters pledged themselves to bring down an equitable redistribution bill after the forthcoming  census, and intimated that there was  a possibility that a bill might be introduced during the present session to give  a separate representative to the Boundary. The Attorney-General promised  to look into the recommendations of  the boards iii respect to county boundaries, especially as they affect the  county courts, and on the question of  a Supreme Coiirt judge for the interior  ne expressed'himself as not in favor  of such a cotfrse, but strongly in favor  of more freqUent sittings of Supreme  Court judges in the interior, and -of  the appointment of more County Court  judges, possibly with increased powers.  Several resolutions relating to railway matters were submitted.   The first  of these-was one in favor of a general  railway act to do away with the necessity of special charters for individual  roads.   The executive said they could  not see the advisability of such an act  so long as   the Dominion insisted .on  the issuance of special charters.   Regarding the proposed railway from the  Crow's   Nest   Pass   to   Golden,   they  seemed inclined to encourage the construction   of such a line.   Mr. Dunsmuir   stated with regard  to both the  Coast-Kootenay railway and the resolution in favor of "free trade in railways," especially referring to the railway from   the Crow's Nest coal fields  to the international boundary, that the  government was not yet ready to de  clare its policy and would not be until  after the Dominion  government had  been   heard from.   Mr. Turner stated  that  the government  had under consideration   the question  of extending  the Shuswap and Okanagan [railway  from Vernon to Midway.   In the matter of freight rates on farm products,  in   connection   with    which   the   Associated Boards are making representations to   the C.  P. R. with a view to  securing such a readjustment of freight  rates as will enable the fanning   districts of the province to  compete with  the   United States   for the Kootenay  markets, the Minister of Agriculture  said   that   the provincial government  was already acting along similar lines.  Respecting the immediate selection  by   railway companies  of lands they  are   eutitled  to under their respective  subsidy   acts,  and the cancellation of  reserves,  the Minister of Lands said  that   the   British  Columbia Southern  aud Columbia & Western railways had  practically completed their selections  and   that   he   was  urging them to  at  Once make the necessary surveys.   As  soon as this was done, which he hoped  would   be   inside of another year1, he  would be in a position to cancel the reserves, how covering practically all of  East and West Kootenay.  Other representations were also made  to the government, but the foregoing  includes those in which the Boundary  district has a more or less direct interest.   If only half the benefits sought  be obtained, then will the existence  and efforts of the Associated Boards of  Trade of Eastern British Columbia be  abundantly justified arid rewarded.  on supplies and machinery. The statement shows supplies aud machinery  paid at Toronto up to March 1 of this  year and at Fernie up to the end of  last year as follows: PaidToronto firms,  $48,815.47; paid Montreal firms, $33,-  076.17; paid Ontario towns, $5,007.12;  paid Nova Scotia towns, $9,812.40; paid  New Brunswick..towns, $670.62; paid  Great Britain (including freight), $59,-  704.15; p_ud Winnipeg firms, $19,121.37;  paid British Columbia, Alberta, etc.,  $43,035.08; paid. United States, $97,-  740.77; pid Fernie firms and contractors,  $373,397.2*1; total, $690,550.36.  THE  BANK  OF  TO THE   DEAF.

C.  On 5th inst. :-the Manitoba .Free  Press, Winnipeg-, published _ a lengthy  editorial upon the subject, "Developing British Columbia:" After reviewing the position as regards the Crow's  Nest Pass coal fields,and approving  the action of the recent convention of  representatives of- the. -Associated  Boards of .Trade in deciding for "free  trade in' railways," the article continues: ���'���  "Besides the proposal tCconnect the  Great Nprthern railway with the Crow's  Nest there is also a proposal to author-_  ize a line to be constructed from a point  on- the Spokane Falls and Northern  railway into the Boundary countryy  passing in and out along -the international boundary at Casade, Carson,  Midway and other . points. The  strongest arguinent brought against  the granting of authority to construct  this railway, which; has in the past  been known as the Kettle River Valley  railway, is ,that it", would-carry .-the  trade of that part of*the province into  the United States. This is such an old  argunieut and has been so often illustrated by the case of Spokane City that  by this time the people are surely very  well able to appreciate the value of it.  They appear to have come to the conclusion that even at the risk of benefiting the town and country to the south  of the boundary they will advocate a  policy to benefit themselves and the  country aud towns to tne north of the  boundary. T.ie United States -welcomes railway construction and has always done so. Permission to build  is obtained'from local authorities without any . question. The Canadian  Pacific and Grand Trunk compete in  the United States with the Great  Northern, the Northern Pacific, and  their connecting lines to the east. The  Canadian Pacific have for a long time  sent their passengers and goods over a  line to the city of Seattle in the  west and in the east they proceed by  way of the state ofjMaine, while in the  center they use the state of Minnesota  and Dakota for the purposes of their  traffic and trade. The people of southern British Columbia do.not appear to  regard with any alarm the entrance of  Great Northern trains into Canadian  territory;  on  the  contrary the resolu-  " tion of the'Associated Boards of Trade  of the province clearly, shows that they  desire (he adoption of a policy of free  trade in railways, just as a few years  ago the- province of Manitoba desired  the adoption pf such a policyj fought  for it, -tnd" obtained it. The C.P.R op-;  posed the adoption of that policy with  regard to ^Manitoba andit is opposing  the adoption of that policy with regard  to British Columbia. '.���'"-       ���*  "Several -'applications ; have -been  made in past.years for-a right to construct the Kettle -River Valley road.  The Free Press has neyer been able to  see any objections to the granting of  that authority, nor are we able now to  see any objections. The argument  that railway, competition will be disastrous because if will give thc people  of the Boundary country the option of  shipping and receiving goods over two  lines of railway instead of one is only  made apparent by the contention that  the second line of railway will develop  trade with the United States. Well,  that is not so disastrous a thing, because the Canadian Pacific and Grand  Trunk have spent millions of.dollars  and have built hundreds of miles of  railway for the purpose of developing  trade with the United States, as many  millions of dollars have beenexpeuded  on international bridges to connect the  "two"countries byrailwayr At the present moment there is a project to make  a steamship connection between the'  Grand Trunk at Sarnia and the port of  Duiuth. The object of the Grand  T_ruai�� is to carry business from Du-  l__Y_i"a__d Superior cities to the New  England states. The Canadian Pacific  makes a strong bid to carry busine ss  from Seattle and other western points  to the eastern states  and the Atlantic  o'-seabo'ard.     What   the   railway   com-  i ���- .-- ������'      -  parties desire, is something to carry and  they .'are not 'particular whether they  get that iri one country or the other.  In the case of the Kettle River Valley  charter and the proposed connection  with the Crow's Nest Pass,one of these  railway companies doing business in  the United States as well as in Canada  endeavors to wrap around its corporate body the folds of the British flag  and declares that if there is any connection between British Columbia and  the United States the interests under  the flag will suffer.  "It probably.has never occurred to  opponents of the Kettle river charter  that it would draw to the smelters iu  the Boundary country the ores from  the Republic country in the state of  Washington-and from the mountains  around whitti the Kettle river runs into British Columbia. The projected  railway crosses the international boundary at least three times and must take  a dip down from Carson in the Boundary district to the head of Curlew creek,  _ which flows out of Curlew/ lake immediately north of the Republic mining district. There art other creeks  flowing into the Kettle river arid it is  "only natural to suppo|e,that a great  deal'of- therores in theiint'ral part of  __the state of Washington would find its  jyyray" to the BoUadary^district smelt  ers by means of this . new  railway, by  virtue of proximity and convenience.  "."It should be remembered that the  Boundary-district mining camps are all  new and the vast majority of the properties aie as yet undeveloped, though  known to contain great wealth. Experts who have seen the South African  and West Australian gold fields say,  that the British Columbia mineral  fields rank well with either of them  and, all circumstances considered, are  superior to both.--Much. of that  superiority consists in the fact that al-  the aids to successful mineral developl-  ment are io be found in southern British Columbia. . The climate is favor  able, there is enormous water power  there is timber, coal and lime, and all  that is heeded is transportation fatuities. A statement was made in the  railvray^committee of the House of  Commons a couple.of years ago by Sir  William Van Home in which he ventured to estimate that iri the next ten  years, if southern British Columbia  were properly, developed, it would give  rise to a trade worth at least one hundred million dollars. The proposal to  keep a dittrict like that from trading  with the United States, to deny it a  privilege accorded to every other province of the Dominion, may be a proposal in the interests of the C. P. _R.,  which has drawn an iron circle around  the Boundary country so that nothing  can get in or out without its permission, but it is certainly a proposal that  cannot be viewed by parliament as in  the interests of the country. Parliament has very properly, by means of  the Crow's Nest railway, connected  the Northwest Territories with the  Kootenay country first, and by its delay oyer the Kettle River Valley application has allowed the C. P. R. to  take possession of that country two  years in advance of any other line. It  is quite another thing to contend that  parliament ihould say to the people  out there, and to those who have investments in that country, no other  railway must ever enter, and you can  never trade north and south but only  east and west. That might be the view  ���of the hide-bound protectionist, but  even if a handsome trade between  southern British Columbia and the  United States is built up surely that  will be to the interests of British Columbia and all concerned. There is an  enormous trade between the province  of Ontario and the states of New York.  Pennsylvania and Ohi��. Nobody looks  upon that as a disaster."  *  After-quoting statistics illustrative  of British Columbia's export trade, the  article continues: "The figures we  have given are for the fiscal year 1899.  With proper transportation facilities,  with enterprise, with capital confident  of return, with boundless natural resources, British Columbia is destined  to produce and export not $14,000,000  but, as Sir William Van Home predicted,' $100,000,000 worth. What the  province chiefly needs to accomplish  this great destiny was set forth by that  "eminent and patriotic Canadian who  has just passed away, Dr. George M.  Dawson, the director^>f the Geological  Surrey of Canada, who, writing of the  ecoromic minerals of British Columbia,  after describing the resources of the  districts already well advertised, said  that valuable minerals were known to  occur in many other parts of the province, and added, ���but can be utilized  only where means of transportation  have been provided?  "That transportation is the key that  will unlock the resources of the province of British Columbia is fully recognized by the people and in a democratic country like ours the will of the  "people ~is~ ~ supreme." The 'resolution  bearing upon the Crow's Nest Pass-  Boundary railway question passed by  the Associated Boards of Trade of that  section of the province was carried by  a very large majority, after.full notice  and discussion. The policy is endorsed  'by some of the most representative  papers in the Kootenay and also by investors in eastern Conada who have  large investrnents in the province.  Parliament cannot close.its ears to the  demands of the people pf British Columbia, or ignore the conditions under  which they labor in developing that  province and finding a market for its  products."  ���*g*_i ��� tm,mm*.*��4**x*.*���*��***&*>.*..*,***&****���.

You save money by buying provisions  at Crowston's.  The annual meeting of "the Greenwood football club was held on Wednesday night in the Mas onic hall with R.  From Rossland, where the head office  of the company is situate, it is learned  that a plan has been perfected whereby the treasury of the Brandon and  Golden Crown Mining company will  be restored, and will enable operations  to be resumed shortly, on an extensive  scale. Owing to the slump in the mining shares iu eastern Canada, the  directors were unable to dispose of any  more treasury ������ stock, and in con-  seqence operations were suspended last  November. Prior to that date, considerable ore shipments to the; Trail  smelter had been made. The freight  and treatment tate was such..that the  directors did not feel justified in paying it any longer, especially as the  smelter company declined to reduce  the figure, unless a contract for a  specific tonnage was entered" into, or  unless the entire ��� output of the mine  was sent to Trail, for one year at a  fixed rate. ' The re-organization just  effected, has taken a different-form  from that usually adopted. Instead of  the company being.re-constructed', and  made assessable, as is the practice, the  original subscribers have entered into  a written agreement,in-virtue of which  they have agreed to contribute or surrender to the treasury, 40 per cent of  their original holdings'; and, as the subscribers' stock has been in a pool  since 1897. this. arrangement was thus  more easily accomplished, as the promoters'; stock was not scattered. By  the plan adopted by the promoters, two  important things have been accomplished. First, the saving.of the cost  of reconstruction; and," secondty, the  saving to the purchaser of treasury  shares of an extra assessment. The'  original subscriber's have thus shown  evidence of their good faith, as well as  their high opinion of the futuie of the  property. With the treasury on hand,  the 40 per cent contributed by the  original subscribers, will bring the  shares in the treasury to 450,000.  Negotiations for the sale'.of a large  block of the'-treasury shares are now in  progress, and the proceeds will not only  be sufficient'to payoff the floating debt  but* will provide sufficient funds for  working-capital, so that when preship-  ments are resumed, it will be on a permanent basis.  Last Monday night J. R. Brown, of  Kamloops,Grand Chancellor iu B. C. of  the Knights of,Pythias, paid an official  visit to Greenwood lodge No. 29, K. of  P.

The Grand Chancellor suitably addressed the lodge, his remaks  being well received. After lodge business had been disposed of a banquet  was served and two or three hours were  very pleasantly spent, speeches, songs,  and instrumental music combining to  make the time one of social enjoyment.
