There were shipped 2,300 tons of ore  from the Mother Lode mine to the  local smelter  last week.  The Miner-Graves syndicate's properties in Phoenix camp shipped to the  Granby smelter during the first three  months of the year S4.618 tons. This  is an average of nearly 607 tons per  day.

In a distance of 146 feet iu the 203-  foot tunnel on the John Bull group,  near Gladstone, crosscutting of the ore  body is progressing satisfactorily.  The John Bull Mines company owns  two claims in which local and Rosslaud capital is interested.  ._-__���-___-____-__��� '  * S. F. Parrish, manager of the B. C.  mine, Summit camp, returned here  Monday from a trip to Spokane. It  has'been decided to employ diamond  drills in exploiting the ore bodies of  the B. C. Stone and Knight of Spokane secured the contract for the work  and have their outfit up at the B. C.  Ola Lofstad who has a working bond  on the Early History, in South Dead-  wood camp, is prosecuting development. The tunnel is in about 275 feet  and a winze is being sunk from the  first crosscut. IS. C. Brown, of this  city, and Dr. S. C. Rickards, of Grand  Forks, own the property.  take place owing to the backward season, there being considerable ice below  .the first dam. The finishing touches  are being put on the dam so that when  the ice goes ont everything will be in  readiness to commence operations.  Several members of the party while on  the ground tested the gravel by panning and obtained good "prospects."  Some record-breaking shaft work is  being done on the Sunset in Deadwood  camp. In 2.*; days the shaft was sunk  a distancee of 110 feet by 12 men who  have the contract. It is now down to  the 300-foot level and a station is being  cut out. A further contract for another 100 feet of sinking has been let.  The shaft is a double compartment,  each compartment being 4^x5 feet in  the clear. Harry Johns, manager for  the Montreal and Boston Copper company, owning the Sunset and Crown  Silver, reports that after the last contract is completed it is more than  likely that the shaft will be continued  to theSOO-foot level. A trial shipment  of ore from the Crown Silver mine  will shortly be sent to one of the  local smelters for testing purposes.  ANNUAL MEETING.  Board of Trade Annual Meeting is Well Attended,  THE PRESIDENT'S ADDRESS  Officers Elected for the Current Year.  The V. V. & E. Further Supported.  Delegates to be Sent to Victoria-  C. W. Vedder, returned on yesterday's  train from a visit to Summit camp.  He reports the finding of an excellent  body of ore by the crosscut tunnel on  the Blue Bell. A drift has been started  following the footwall. This claim  ,vith the J. S. was bonded late last fall  by John Dorsey for $40,000. The bond  .vas taken over bj- the Lake Shore and  B.C Copper Mining and Development  company, a Chicago undertaking,  since then development has been actively pushed in the prospecting of the  Blue Bell. A recent sample shipment:  of S40 pounds of ore to the Granby  -.melter gave returns of $26.74 principally in copper.  P. P. Sharpe, C. W. Vedder, E. Kerfoot, H. M. Keefer, K. C. B. Frith, H.  N. Hendtickson and M. Lehner, shareholders in the Rock Creek Consolidated Placer Mining company, visited  Rock preek Monday for the purpose of  inspecting the work on the company's  placer holdings. Prom one of the  part)' it-is learned that it will be some  three   weeks  before   "booming"   will  The Montana Ore Purchasing company has declared its third quarterly  dividend of $300,000 or at the rate of  $1,200,000 per annum. The Amalgamated Copper people, before the late  election, described President Heinze as  a- man with amine worth perhaps a  million. That this description was  truly representative of the estimate of  the Amalgamated people it may_.be  stated that when the Amalgamated  Copper company was formed;./Mr.  Rogersoffered Mr. Heinze, so the.sto'ry  goes in New York, 5,000 shares of Boston & Montana for his interests at  Butte, including the Montana Ore Purchasing company^ now paying dividends of $1,200,000 per annum. This  is said to be the offer over which Mr.  Heinze laughingly replied,"Mr.Rogers  you forget my office furniture; at the  figure you offer me for my property I  will give yon. my check for all of  yours."  The Zala M. mine in Sheridan camp  has been bonded to an English syndicate for $1,000,000, says the Montesano  Vidette. The new company will proceed at once to development work on  the Kitty Clyde claim, which is part of  the company's property.- The.property  of the Sheridan Miniug company lies  on tlie same ledge and between the  Zala and Clyde claims, so that the development of the latter will come pretty  near showing the value of the Sheridan  mine. Work was recently suspended  on the Zala mine for the  simple reason that 'die managers'refused to further rob the mine  by paying the enormous charges for  transportation. The mining, transportation and smelting charges were  costing $40" a ton, and yet a profit of  over ��60 a ton was being made after deducting that great expense. The new  company wilt put in a.plant that will  treat the. ore -at the.mine, thus doing  away with a large part of the expense!.  In addition a "railroad . to . Republic  seems assured, so'that the owners of  miuing properties in that locality seem  confident "of "gettihg^returns-for their  investments.  _*��;__.--.  OUVENIR of the B.  C.

In a recent issue of the Engineering  and Mining Journal, Paul Johnson,  manager of the smelting department  of the British Columbia Copper company, has thc following interesting  communication. Since its publication  additional records la *e been established as for some days past the smelter  has been treating over 400  tons daily:  "Sir: Supplementing the description  I gave in the Engineering and Mining  Journal of February 16th of the British  Columbia Copper company's smelter,  I will give you the record of last week's  run, as I think it is a record for a blast  furnace of size 42 by 150 in. The ores  smelted are from the Mother Lode, besides silicious ores, high in silica;  otherwise no fluxes are used:  March   9th, ore smelted *..   323  March 10th, ore smelted   327  March llth, ore smelted   341  March 12th, ore smelted    372  March 13th, ore smelted    366  March 14th, ore smelted   349  March 15th, ore smelted    350  Total = .2,428  Average per day .' 346  "Besides the ore smelted,some slag is  put back. The coke used varies from  10 to 12 per cent, depending on the  amount of sulphur in the ore and tne  fineness of the charge. The first  matte made varies from 45 to 53 per  cent copper, but we have made as high  as 58 per cent copper matte. To handle  this amount of material, only ��0 men  are employed, inoU'ding the foreman;  thus -iverag-iag 11.5 tons per. man per  day. At the smelters some years ago  one used to figure one man per ton  charge smelted. "  The business men of Greenwood  have become possessed of some of the  Seattle spirit or what is better what  should be generally known" as the  Greenwood grit. At the annual meeting of the Board of Trade on Th'ursday  last, there' was a large and representative attendance of business men.  Among those who were present were  F. W. Hart, W. E. McPherson, F.

To the Members of the Greenwood Board  of Trade:. _\  ���  Gentlemen. ��� Your secretary;: (Mr.  Gaunce) having laid before you a synopsis of the work performed by the board  during .the past year, it will be for. you  to determine.how fa'r^the council has  .fulfilled the functions: of such ��� a -body.'  It is owing chiefly to the untiring efforts  of your secretary thatl the council 'met  the number of times they have and any  success we have met with is .principally  due to him. I saytliis more especially  to' point put the fact that there is still  lacking on the: part of ".'pur . leading  citizens that hearty co-operation which  is absolutely:necessary,-ifsuclvan ijiBti-  tutioh as. this :is tpcarry./out the .work:  1 egi ti n i ate ly ly i ng before it, and ' w ithou t  whicli no board of trade can' hope to  prosper. ...-'.-��� ���'���'���     "���: y  ;  '-.''���>  ��� It is becoming more apparent to me  month by month and year after year  that the only way by whicli we here in  Greenwood can secure for ourselves, and  for the district of which we-are the  center, that consideration from the governments both Provincial and Dominion  to which we are entitled, is to bind ourselves more closely together by the ties  of self-interest, or, in other words,-let  every man who has a stake. in^tlie city  or district become a live paying member  of the board of trade, then we>.caivdp,  with one accord or say wUhybivfcjvoice  'that'whiclv-isr-after^du^  considered for tlie besty}AVe'are.a,ll":ini'J  tensely interested in the>ligl)tinO\y;going  on in connection with' the\ppal-t-Kop^  enay-rail way-'and .I'''sincere^  this board will keep before it 'tKa<��quei��j  tion and speak with no uncertain sound  on every occasion possible until the mat;  ter is finally settled.  ��� 1  You are aware that the associated  boards met for their annual convention  in tliis room five weeks since, on which  occasion the citizens took the opportunity of entertaining the delegates and at  the same time showing them, as far as  time would permit, the evidences of that  mineral wealth on which we hope in the  near future to build a city which shall  be second to none in thc interior of  British Columbia. ��� I think I am safe in  saying that the programme .carried  through at that time has proved one of  the best advertisements the district has  ever had and ono which will bear' fruit  for a long time to come.  Thc most important event which has  happened since our last annual meeting  is the carrying to successful completion  of the smelter gchemes, then in their Initial stages. The British Columbia Copper company's plant is now running in  such a manner as to exceed the most  sanguine anticipations of its promoters  and designers. The Standard Pyritic  company's works are almost co.rnploted.  and we confidently expect to. gee the  furnace blov*n in within, the next few-  weeks.  Your, vice-president, Mr. Duncfen Ross,  was appointed one of the delegates by  tho associated boards to proceed to Victoria to lay before the government the  decision arrived at by that body on the  various questions discussed by  them.

One of tlie questions which the board  will be ti'-ked to take up, if not to-night  at some near date, is that of the ore ta*��.  The insidence of taxation on any industry is a matter which should not be  lightly dealt with, and I trust that before any conclusion is arrived at by thia ���  board that the whole matter will be  fully discussed and no resolution presented to the government which has not had  the fullest consideiation by every  member  In retiring from the presidency I have  to thank sincerly the board for the honor  confered on ine in electing me president,  and also to thank the council for the unfailing courtesy and spirit of goodwill^  and harmony winch has prevailed at  pur meietings  Hoping fioni.this date the good work  will go on with renewed vigor and  energy, I am yours truly, '" '  C.

He.,_��� .'  pointed out-that public   opinion- had--J*"-"~"  been so forcibly expressed elsewhere  in  reference  to the necessity for competitive railways that the government  had retreated   from  their position  of  favoring the C. P. R. and were willing  to leave the matter to their supporters.  For this reason the house had been adjourned   for   two weeks in order'that  the members might get an expression  of. opinion   from   their   constituents.  Mr.  Crouse believed that this district  should   take   further action  and sug-    * ,  gested that  if Greenwood would  ap.   -  point delegates Midway would do the  same.   After some discussion in favor n ~ ^  of the scheme, Duucan Mcintosh and  ,.  C.Scott Galloway were appointed and  the council were instructed to prepare  a petition in favor of the V.

If miners, waiters, tailors, printers and others have the right  to organize so surely have the medical  men and if the coal miners, in the public interest, ask for an act imposing an  educational test upon   those working  underground, it is surely necessary in  the public interest that a similar test  should  be imposed  on those who assume the responsibility  in   matters of  life and death.

City authorities have no  avenue of escape excepting to smother  that humanity which is always found  save   iu   the   heart    of   a   provincial  government.     An   unfortunate   man  jjets ill in one of the surrounding mining camps.    He has no money and no  friends and he comes  to Greenwood.  Police officers find him arid something  must be dorie.   They ascertain that he  is not a resident of Greenwood and thc  government officer is appealed to.   He  knows nothing about the case, has not  instructions to act and  refers thc city  to the government agent at Rossland.  In the meantime the afflicted man is in  need of medical   attendance,   careful)  nursing and proper food.   "What is to  be done?   The city must either let him  die on the street or assume a heavy expenditure.   The  latter course is taken  in this enlightened age, the provincial  government chuckle at having saddled  the cost on   the city and" the municipal |  ratepayers- are mulcted  in additional  -taxes  that ought to be borne by the  "*-" province.���This jveek J:h.ere.7__a^e^been^  two cases illustrating the above.

The V. V. & E. and the Crow's  Nest Pass Railway-  Smith  Curtis, M. P. P., who-is taking a very prominent part in  the railway discussion now  occupying the attention   of   the  province, intended  to  visit   Greenwood   this  week   but was  called back  from Grand Forks on important business.   He also intended to  visit the  West Fork country, but that  "trip was also abandoned.    Mr.  Curtis  who was recently  interviewed by the  Rossland Miner, summed up the situation as follows: ���������*"'���''���  "This question is overshadowing- all  -"others* at   thc   capital.   The  goveni-  ". ment has failed, up to date, to declare  "'   finally what it proposes to  do with the  '.Coast-Kootenay railway, there being-a  '    well-grounded fear lhat it proposes  to  ���favor-the C. P. R.    Delegations from  various  parts  of  the country affected  have" been  interviewing  the ministry  and have in thc strongest possible way  protested    against   Southern   British  Columbia being handed over to thc C.  P.  R.  monopoly.    Premier Dunsmuir  intimated   that a contract might possibly be made with  the C. P. R.   This  has set   'the heather all ^aflame'  and  two monster meetings were held in the  city of Victoria,  both  of   which   were  unanimous, regardless of all political  party   distinctions,   in   favor   of   the  necessary 'aid being given to secure a  competing line, independent-of the C.  P. R., anti making provision  against  any  possible   amalgamation  with, or  Control  by  thc  C.   P.  R.    The latter  meeting requested  the four city members   to  resign   unless they were prepared to support this  proposition, and  the three members present���Helmcken,  Hall and _\lcE.hillips,cat_ie out squarely  for competition.    This  is an astounding   change , of   opinion   in  Victoria.  '" _hpee. years! ago the ijaard of Trade  there:, opposed*granting a  charter to  *  . Mr7 Corbin _tiy_   the   local legislature  " jnetndriaiizerly.the   Dominion   goyern-  '���' ment'to the ������E-'mc effect.   Victoria has  -.. awakened,- ajid this recent departure  .shows"the'new spirit of progress that  is animating her and it will make her  a great city.  "L,argc  meetings have been held in  Vancouver and throughout the Fraser  river valley,   in half a dozen places in  East and West Yale and in  the Boundary   country,   all  strongly  insisting  upon  a  competitive route.   I attended  j  very  Jarge a.nd enthusiastic public  meeting  in   Vancouver  on  T.-iursday  evening  and  gave an  address on the  bgu'efifs of   conjpefitiop   tg   gouthpjp  British   Columbia   generally   and th{3  Special good to be deriyed by the coast  cities by  a close connection with the  Boundary    and    Kootenay    d_b.rlc.ti_,  .. .The meeting was entirely In favor of  j    im^jovernment- ownership,   or   of  com-  ' ' petition, and knowing that government  ownership could not be got from the  "   present ministry, it was overwhelmly  in f ajpr' of-competition.   No one came  forward to;say a single word on behalf  "of the C.~P."R. andthisis very slgnifi^  cant, seeing that the coinpany has en:  ormops interests and a big pay roll in  Vancouver.   I   may b,e wrong, but I  haye good reasons for believing that a  piajority   of   the   government's   sup:  porters  are in favor of a competitive  line,  arid if they stick  to their guns  they will have the support of the oppo-  ���gUioa in their fight, and Mr. Dunsmuir  V��(U -either  have  to   carry out "their  wishes, or   step down  and out.   The  7    long recess taken at  this time is un-  7 doubtedly' with   a view to  fix up the  government fences on this question and  avert   a crisis, which-was Very, imminent.   The only   fear   is   that  when  those members of the government, who  are  favorable   to the C. Pi  R., find  they  cannot have their way, they will  endeavor to throw the matter over to  another session, and if the friends of  competition   become weak-kneed this  may   happen.   If this  is done it will  mean a delay that will.be disastrous to  all the mining region  from the   Cascade   range to  the Boundary country.  Wera   the   road  begun   this spring it!  would take a year and probably two  years   or  two and  a half years to tap  Midway, Greenwood, Grand Forks and  Cascade.     Postponement   to   another  session   will mean no competition in  transportation for the Rossland riding  for the next three or three and a   half  years.  "' |'In taking any action in the house,  or an the platform in this railvyay matter I am.not speaking fqr any corp.ration, but simply on the principal of the  question and any dispatches in newspapers to the contrary are entirely  without foundation and inexcusable."  "How about the Crow's Nest Southern charter?"  "This application" has been very  cavalierly treated by the government.  It, with all-the other railway charters,  has been thrown over until after the  recess, to be finally- dealt with. The  promoters have been shamefully  treated. They asked for no subsidy,  they were ready to build the line immediately and the government knew it.  The treasury of -the province is so  sadly in need of funds that the poll  tax is increased to $5 and other new  taxes are being levied and yet it is perfectly certain that were this road built  the increased revenue from the coal  tax would give far more revenue than  these new taxes and that in three years  after the completion of the railway the  increased coal output would add,  directly and indirectly, at least $500,000  to our revenue. It is quite possible  that the government will yet impose  such conditions that the charter, will  be useless 4nd the province will so lose  this large prospective revenue."  ��*WfH**'K*)��^W**"*-*f��#*'��*"i9-!--!t'!tt!��#��-  MINERAL ACT, 1896.
