SMYTHE,  Manager* Greenwood 'Branch;  While comparatively little is heard  of the work of the British Columbia  (Rossland aud Slocan) Syndicate, Ltd.,  under Foreman Trevorrow and his 30  or 35 men the Snowshoe, owned by  the syndicate, is rapidly being-transformed into one of the best properties  in the Boundary. The greater portion  of the development for sbme months'  has been done in what is known as the  railway tunnel, which has been driven"  tinder the track of the Phoenix biahoh  of the'C. P. R.  - _ ���       ���'-....;��� i  This tunnel is now in over 600 feet  from the portal, and has penetrated  two valuable ore bodies, aud is still being; driven. About 325 feet in a raise  was started on an incline aud is now  up 130 feet, nearly half way to the surface. In addition to this a winze has  been sunk 100 feet on the ore, and that  body explored to-that extent.  . For a couple of months the Dia-  m)nd- Drill Prospecting- company, of  Spokane, has been doing some developing- by means of the diamond drill;  four or five long bores have been made  and are still .being worked upon. It is  understood that the results "are fully  up to the expectations of the management, Owing to the use of power by  the diamond drill, not as many drills  for development can be used just now.  Nevertheless three little giant drilla  are constantly pounding away in the  mine.  : A, J. McMillan, managing.director  of the; Snowshoe, is in London, but  will return probably iu the course of a  couple of months, when something-  will be known in regard" to the 20-drill  compressor which has been ordered for  the property.���Phoenix. Pioneer.  TAKING THE CENSUS.  P. T. McCaUum has been appointed  census commissioner for the Boundary  country. He is'appointing- his enumerators and expects to haye everything in  readiness by April 5th. As the census  gives the official standing of all places',  the citizens of Greenwood-should lis  sist the local enumerator in getting a  complete record of the population of the  city.

THE CITY COUNCIL.  Business Transacted at the Regular  Meeting.  In the absence of Mayor Jakes, Aid.  Sullivan was voted to the chair at the  regular meeting on Monday night and  Aid. Naden, Caulfield, Sutherland aud  Ross were present. Among the communications read was one from the  Building Trades Council of Seattle,  stating, that rumors and circulars to the  effect that there was employment for  numerous additional carpenters in that  city were untrue. Tilsey & Bishop  asked permission to connect the waste  water from water wheel at Clarendon  with the Greenwood street flume and  permission was granted. A petition  from ratepayers interested was read  asking for extension of water works  along Gold street to the Anaconda  bridge. The petition was referred to  water works committee to report.  The special committee on street  lighting reported that the Electric  Light company had agreed to a rate of  $2 per -Dion th instead of $3 for 32-  candle power street lights and the same  committee were authorized to report  the most suitable places for additional  lights.  The council'discussed the washing  away of the banks of Boundary creek'  with P. Genelle,.of the Yale-Columbia  company, and the street committee was  authorized to deal with the same.  -Several accounts were paid, including $40 to Aid. Ross, expenses connected with city business at Victoria,  and $30, three months' donation to Free  Reading room. The health by-law and  revenue, by-law were considered in  committee.  Aid. Naden gave,notice to intoduce a  temporary loan by-law and Aid. Ross  to introduce an amendment to the Sunday observance by-law.  The chief of police was instructed to  collect road and dog taxes and the  council adjourned.  COUNTY COURT JUDGE.  Government Promises One for the  Boundary.  Duncan Ross returned en Friday  last from the capital to which place he  went as one of the delegates from the  Associated Board of Trade to place the  resolutions passed at the annual meeting before the government. The other  members of the delegation were J. B.  McArthur, Columbia; J. B. Johnson  and Mayor L-londe, Rosslaud; J. C.  Drewery, Moyie; Aid. Beer, Nelson;  G. G. Henderson, Fernie; F. J. Deane,  Kamloops; G. A. Henderson, Vernon,  and H. W. C . Jackson, secretary of the  association. The government although  kept extremely busy with numerous  delegations and parliamentary duties,  met the delegation three times and discussed at length the requirements of  the interior. Among the matters of  particular interests to the Boundary  upon which the government promised  to take action were the official recognition of the Boundary and the appointment of a county judge. It was  announced that the,*aew maps would  have Boundary district shown thereon,  and that a new county would be formed  along the lines suggested by the Associated Boards when the Dominion  government would appoint the additional judge.  The committee who took charge of  the visitors during the annual meeting  of the Associated Boards of Trade, are  to be congratulated upon the manner in  which they carried out their duties.  After paying all expenses incurred,the  committee found that they  would not  require  the $150   guaranteed   by  the  citizens' committee���a reserve fund left  over since the celebration of last year.  The committee also voted $20 to Secretary Giunce for the efficient manner,  in which  he carried out. the arrange-;  merits for the banquet and other enter-;  tairime-.t."'-..'' -._  W@BM!  The Greenwood smelter on Monday broke the world's ricord.  In the 24 hours 381 tons ef ore was treated in the furnace; The  capacity of the furnace is supposed to be 225 tons a day, but 6win��  to the self-fluxing character of the ore and.the merits of the smelter  itself, this remarkable run-ons which has never been beaten by  any other smelter in the world���was made within the 24 hours. The  run is all the more remarkable since the smelter has been running  but a short time and new smelters are generally supposed to run less  smoothly than others. ,  LOVE'S DREAM SHATTERED  Italian Youth Elopes from Greenwood  with Woman Much His Senior.  The Kootenay hotel saw the finish of  altTin tere��ti n jjTonia^  Chief of Police Jarvis ruthlessly tore  Cassi Toreetti, aged 17, from the arms  of his beloved Teresa Bompelli, aged  40, and informed him that he would  have to return to. his mother today.  The happy couple were enjoying a  stolen honeymoon and the young man  was terribly cast down when he learned  that the strong arm of the law had  stepped in to interrupt his dream.  Cassi and Teresa had spent four or  five days of unalloyed pleasure in Nelson and were coming to the conclusion  that the Queen City of Kootenay suited  them immensely. Now the youthful  lover will have to return to his home  in the Boundary and will probably pay  up for the short period of bliss with an  interview in which the slipper of his  maternal parent will figure prominently.  The hero and and heroine of theelop-  mentto which the chief of police's appearance put an end, are Italians. Tor-  retti is a good looking and sturdy lad  of seventeen summers at the outside.  His partner in the escapade is probably about 40 years of age and big  enough to make four of the lad. Age  and weight, however, cut no figure  when love sets the pace, and thus it  was that Cassi and Teresa hurriedly  left their homes in Greenwood and  headed for Nelson determined to find a  sojourning place where nothing would  interfere with the devotion they felt  for each other. They put up at the  Kootenay hotel and were enjoying the  experience immensely, when Chief  Jarvis put in an appearance. The  officer had been notified by wire of  what had occurred and was requested  to see that the lad was sent home as  soon as possible. Cassi didn't want to  go back to Greenwood. The town  would be a wilderness without Teresa,  and when the chief insisted the youth  was badly broken np. Teresa* may follow him if she likes, for the chief's in  struction do not concern her and she is  at liberty to go wherever her will may  dictate.  ^This__morning!s^trainii-will*carry^to  Greenwood a youthful Italian who has  learned at a tender age tliat the course  ef true love runs amid rocks and that  his guiding star ia located over a  boulder of large dimensions.���Nelson  Miner.  CIGAR FACTORY  To Be Started in Greenwood in About  Ten Days.  Greenwood is growing. The latest  addition to its industries is a full  equipped cigar factory. Fred Rey an  experienced cigar maker from Winnipeg, arried in the city a few days ago  and after sizing up the situation decided there was a good opening for his  business here. He leased a building*  near tbe Greenwood hotel and expects  to have- his plant and material here  within ten days. Mr. Roy will manufacture a cigar suitable for the hotel  trade and as he will use Havana tobacco  and is a first ciass workman he expects  a Urge sale in the city and district.  The following circular telegram has  been issued by J. S. Carter, C. P. R.  district passenger agent under date  March 26th: To board of Trades and  all mine operating assotiations: It is  now definitely arranged that delegates  to Ottawa will leave Kootenay Landing Thursday, April 4th. Round trip  rates will be $50 from all points, exclusive of sleeper and dining car.  Privilege of visiting Montreal and returning via St. Paul. Agents will be  instructed regarding tickets. All joining must be accredited delegates. Wire  Kaslo Board of Trade the number going that arrangements may be completed.  Wanted���An office desk. Address  P. O. Box 256, Greenwood, B. C.  LOCAL ITEMS  At a meeting of the council of the  Board of Trade held on Wednesday  afternoon, the secretary wasinstructed  to wire other boards in Eastern British  Columbia, stating that the Greenwood  board would not send delegates to Ottawa unless delegation was instructed  to discuss all matters of a federal nature passed at the annual meeting of  the Associated Boards. A letter from  Smith Curtis, M.P.P., in reference to  appropriations for this district, was -  considered and the nec.essa.iy information sent to the member.  Madame Albani, the famous prima  donna, will appear in Rossland on  April 16th. A great many in the  Boundary desire to hear the famous  singer. In order to give them an opportunity to conveniently do so, the  C. P. R. are ready to run a special  train at single fare rates, provided 30*  give their name to the local agent immediately. This will probably be the  last opportunity to hear Madame;Albani aud an effort should be made to  secure the special train.  Lieut. Jack Leckie, of Strthacona's  Horse, passed through Winnipeg on  Monday last and is daily expected in  the city. His name has been frequently  mentioned in the dispatches for  bravery at the front. He was one of  three to accept the colors from His  Majesty the King, when he met the  brave Canadians in London. Lieut.  Leckie should receive a rousing- reception from the citizens of Greenwood.  F. H. Moore, who has charge of the  affairs of the Buckhorn Mining company, left on Tuesday for Sherbrooke -  where he will meet the directors of the  company and discuss its affairs with  them. Mr. Moore will report the advisability of resuming operations at  thie mine and the directors will profi-"  ably carry out his suggestions. Mr.  Moore expects to return to Greenwood  in about four weeks.  Clement Vascher, superintendent of '  tne.Sallymine at Rendell, was in the  xft&^iaSyftek&tMe brought with hinr -  some" splendid specimens of ore from  this rich property. The roads, he  states are in fairly good condition up  to Readell and he believes the.tempo-  rary bridges will last for at least a  month before the high water takes  them away.  Chas. W. Wilson, the well known  tailor and a popular member of the  Greenwood fire department, was married at Republic on February 17th by  Rev. Mr. Earnheart, the happy bride  being-Miss Agnes Ethel Avery of Phoenix. Now that the marriage has beep .  announced, Mr. Wilson is receiving'jthe.  congratulations of his many frienda.'* *_7  In acknowledging receipt of one of   .  the cards showing the two local smelt-'  ers, for which excellent advertisement  thanks are due to Smith & McRae for "*  their enterprise in this connection, the  editor of the British Columbia  Mining c  Record wrote to a local correspondent:  "Many thanks for the souvenir post -  card^whichis indeed a^spiehd id idesf****  A. W. Ross died of paralysis at Toronto on Saturday last. The deceased  "was one of the best known men in the  west. He represented Selkirk in the  Dominion parliament for several years.  He was closely connected with Winnipeg and Vancouver in boom days and  more recently he had charge of the  townsite at Columbia.  The Russell-Law-Caulfield company  are making arrangements to build a"  brick and stone block at the corner of  Copper and^Short street. The building will have a 75-foot, frontage on  Copper. Their present premises will  be removed to a lot recently purchased  by them next to Thos. Walsh's hotel.  W. T. Smith has returned from a  visit to Toronto, New York and other  eastern centers. He reports that a keen  interest is being taken in the mines of  Boundary creek and believes that a  large amount of eastern eapital will be  invested here this summer.  The Stratford Exploration and Development company, iimited, have"--^  cided to resume work on the Brace*  S. W. Hall, superintendent of the Iron  Mask mine, Rossland, visited the property last week.  A Masonic lodge will shortly be instituted at the Mother Lode where a  neat and comfortable hall is available  for that purpose. An Oddfellows  lodge will also be instituted at the.  same place.

Mr. Blair, the Dominion h as  a strong man, always ready to protect its interests against the encroachments of railway corporation. The  C, P. R. .has at,last -discovered that it  will no longer be permitted to treat this  country as', its special, preserve and  that further extensions... of its system  must be within reasonable time and;  with reasonable restrictions. This  was illustrated at the railway committee in Ottawa last week when the  C. P. "R. sought power through its B.  C. Southern railway charter to build  branch lines throughout the province  whenever authorized by the governor-  iu-council and ��� to get a five years' extension of time to complete the road.  Members from the west strongly-protested against allowing the company  to blanket the whole province with a  charter and thus stifle the development  of the country. Hon. Mr. Blair agreed  with them and at his suggestion the  power ol the company was limited to  the construction of a road from" Fort  Steeleto Golden and was given only a  year in which to begin work.

The bona fides of the V. V. & E  railway company has been established  by the joint announcement of J. J.  Hill and Wm.. MacKenzie .that the  Great Northern railway and MacKen-'  zie & Mann were .equally interested in'  the stock of the V. V. & E." Railway  .company. This strong combination of  capital are, making all arrangement"^  to build the road, from the coast to1  Kootenay and as the C. P. R. are making equally strong efforts to hold the  promising territory through which the  road will pass, the chances for the  early comraencerU-j-tf. of construction  on this important railway are indeed  promising. In reference to provincial  aid, the local government have apparently retreated from the position" they  took at the outset of the coniest. It  ' was understood that Premier Dunsmuir and the C. P. R. had entered into  an arrangemehtt- under which the influence of the Ci'P- R''.was to -be used  in securing assistance for the extension of ;the';E.'7-^-N.-'.-T_ilway.;-t6';the'  northern end of Vancouver Island and  in return the opponents of the>C..P.

The yearly general meeting-of the  proprietors of this bank was held on  Tuesday at .heof_ice,3 Clement's Lane,  I3.C. under the presidency of Mr. Gas-  pard Farrer.  The secretary, Mr. A. G. Wallis.hav-  injg- read the notice convening the  meeting.  The chairman said:~Gentlemen, this  is the first occasion of our meeting- in  the present century, and it- is also the  last  occasion on  which we shall meet  in this room.   Our new offices in Grace-  church street are nearly complete, aiid  we expect in the course of  a few days  to move there bag aiid baggage���much  to   our   regret   in one'way7for these  premises,   which  the  bank have held  for the past 28 years as owner, are in a  most   convenient   situation;   but   unfortunately they are not larg-p enough  for   our increasing business,  or .perhaps I should say fortunately our business continues to grow  and hVs frrowh  beyond the  limits of  these premises.  However,   our   next   meeting  will be  held in out1 new premises,  and   as that  svill  not  be until a year hence, I hope  that 'after   we   have got fairly settled  there   some of you will be sufficiently  Now, you may have noticed that I referred   to the future as if our charter  y. ereperpetual instead of expiring as it  does in July next.    "Well, you will be  glad to hear we have   no   anxiety   on  that score.    Last year was   the decennial   period   in   which   the-Canadian  Banking Act came up foi revision before the Canadian Parliament, and we  decided that  we. had better await the  revision of that act before taking steps  to get a renewal of our charter here.  In that act we received the   treatment  that this bank has also received from  the  representatives ��� of the  people of  Canada���that  treatment which we believe we shall always receive and that  we hope to deserve.   It practically left  this bank in Statu quo, and tacitly welcomed our continuous existence among  the banks of the Dominion of Canada.  After that act was passed   we   applied  to the high  commissioner for Canada  here iii London, and by his advice and  with his assistance we approached the  government at Ottawa to ask for their  support    to    our   application   to   the  treasury here:    To this request we received a ready response, and I am glad  to have this opportunity of expressing  Druggists XX  Jewelers aniT  X .X:.Opticians  GREENWOOD, B. C.  TAKING THE CENSUS.  The census, being taken according  to the de jure .system, will represent  the population as it was upon the 31st  day of March at 12 o'clock at midnight,  so that'everyone born before that hour  and everyone dying after it will be  counted in the population.  The country will be divided into census districts,: to correspond with the  electoral .divisions as they-existed for  the last parliamentary election, with  few exceptions.  Census districts will again be divided  into census sub-districts to correspond  with polling sub-divisions for electoral  purposes. * The actual work of taking  the census for the ��� sub-districts will be  assigned to  the enumerators.    Every  officer employed in the carrying out of  the censuses bound under oath to faithfully and exactly carry out his work.  . He is not permitted to disclose any in:  formation which may be -gathered for  the purposes  of the taking of the census.   The.facts arid statistics collected  areto be used for statistical information, and may not be used for taxation  or  any. other ./object.   The   work  of  enumerating is to commence Monday,  April   1,   and will be pros*, cuted  continuously from day to day to day until  completed,   Sundays   excepted.      The  population is grouped under  the heads  of families,households and institutions.  A family consists of parents, and sons  and daughters united in  a living and  housekeeping community, but may include other relatives and servants.   A  household   includes   all   persons  in' a  ~ house __eepin g~c*o m rnu nity-usually-with *  one of   their   number   occupying   the  position of  head.    Single persons living alone who have a special  dwelling  and carry on their  own  housekeeping  are also regarded as householders.  Other persons who only sleep ih a  house will be included in the house  hold which carry on housekeeping for  them, although' they may take their  meals elsewhere. An institution household includes establishments such as  prisons, hospitals, etc., whose inmates,  if they have no home or domicile elsewhere outside of the institution are to  be entered under the head of the institution. The attendants, cooks, etc.,  are not to be entered with the inmates  or guests, but with the household of  the head of the institution, or with  their own or other households of which  they form a part. The heads of  families, households and institutions  arc required to furnish the enumerator  with all particulars regarding every  person in the family, household, or institution as called for in the schedules.  The races will be designated, white,  red, black, and yellow. Only pure  whites, will be classified as whites.  Children born of marriage between  whites and any other race will be classified as red, black or yellow. Under  nationality, Canadian will used to describe every person whose home is in  the country and who has acquired  rights of citizenship. A person born  in any foreign country who is a naturalized citizen will be entered as a  Cauadian; S3 also will be a person born  in the United Kingdom or any of its  colonies whose residence in Canada is  merely temporary. Instructions are  issued to the census takers for the  proper valuation of property and other  matters pertaining to the census  numeration under the provisions of the  "Census Act" which requires that it be  taken every teayears.

I said just now that our  next meeting will be held a year hence,  for if you approve aud consent���and I  hope you will���we propose to abandon  the meeting in September. The attendance, of shareholders at that time  of year is of the smallest, and we think  all useful purposes will be served if we  have "our--accounts-made-up,.audited,,  published and posted to the shareholders half yearly, as hitherto, in  Marcii and September, and then hold a  meeting of the shareholders but once.a  year, at this season. Every day of  the year two or three of the directors  are at the bank, as well as the officers  of the bank, so that if on the receipt  of the general balance sheet any explanation is is desired, we hope shareholders will have no hesitation in coming down and asking for all the information that they want. I may say that  an annual meeting is the common  practice among other Canadian banks.  our thanks���and, if I may speak for  the shareholders, their thanks���both to  Sir Wilfrid Iyaurier, Prime Minister of  Canada, and to his colleagues in the  government, aud also to Lord Strathcona, for the ready and valuable support which we have received from  them. Armed with this support we  applied to the treasury, and you will  be glad to hear that the draft of a supplemental charter has been approved,  and that the Lords of the Treasury  have intimated their intention of submitting the same to His Majesty in  J^l?_t^ J^T_____ll_i5tion. This extends  our'period of existence until July-9117  We are now the only bank of British  origin in Canada, and I think it is  much to the credit of Canada���and io  my judgment adds materially to her  financial strength���that, with our exception, the entire banking capital of  Canada, both of deposits and bank  capital, originates in the Dominion.  In our case, although the capital originates 011 this side, the deposits, as  you know, are Canadian; but though  we alone survive, and are somewhat  of an anomaly, we think there is still  scope   for useful   work for us, and we  4 4 4 4 4 4 44 4 4 4 4 4 4 4 -&*-i*,4,*&4''&*&4-,4*,#  4  4  4  4  ��$->  4  4  4  4  4  4  4  ������  4*  4  4  4  4  4  4  4  4  We have just received a full as  sortment of Greenwood Souve/  nit4 Spoons with the B, C, Copy  per Company's Smelter on the  bowls, Come and get a souvey  nir of the event before they  are all taken,  iprolf-^ltlacpberson  matchmakers.  Copper Street Ufallace-lt-Hlet-Sloek  hope for many years to come.   In support   of  our  view we can turn to our  present   balance   sheet, which   shows  that, although our profits are not extravagant,   we   still have a growing  business, and, we believe, a very sound  business. If you will turn to the figures  themselves   you  will   see they show a  very general expansion.   There is one  item on the liability  side���"To liabilities on endorsements, ,��262,063." That  is a new entry, and has been put in at  the request of our  auditors,  and very  properly.    It is   an entry to which we  are quite   accustomed in this country,  but, as it may not be so familiar to the  people of Canada, I should like just to  explain that that is the bank's endorsement on bills either negotiated or discounted.   The bulk of these bills have  by this time matured and been  paid;  in   fact,  the liability that  still exists  amounts to about ^51,000, and will, of  course,   run   off during the   next few  weeks.   With regard to our profits, we  add   ^25,000   to our reserve fund, we  place   small   amounts   to  the officers'  widows'   and   orphans'  fund and the  officers'  life -insurance  fund,  and we  have appropriated ,��3,000 to  meet  the  expenditure on our new premises.   On  the  assets  side  of the sheet you will  notice that  we are particularly strong  in cash���almost too strong, perhaps for  profits���but it is always a satisfactory  feature.   The totals  of  our   balance-  sheet��� ,��6,009,808---show   a slight excess over those at this time! last year.  I  do   not think there is anything further to whichl wish to jcall your attention,   but  if there are any questions  which   any   shareholder would like to  ask, I shall be happy to do my best to  answer them. - In the   meantime I beg  to move the adoption of the report and  accounts  and the  declaration of the  dividend.
