James Breen managing- director of  the Dominion Copper Company, and  Hugh Sutherland McKenzie & Matin's  representative were in Greenwood on  Tuesday. Mr.--Breen accompanied by-  Mayor Rumberger went down the line  to Midway ostensibly 'searching: for  ���smelter sites, and Mr. .Sutherland took  the afternoon:train for Nelson: where  he is a witness in a suprenie court  ���case.  Mr, Sutherland rgretted that he had  not further time to remain in Greenwood as there   were   several   matters  connected with the smelters   and   rail-  . 1.  -ways upon which he wished to   gather  f? -further information. He represented  JMcKenzie &Mann at Victoria during  the recent railway fight and is   tiatur-  *"->ully disappointed at government policy.  . Asked by a Times representative regarding,the future movements of the  \' V. V. & E. Mr. Sutherland stated that  that would be definitely decided   at   a  . meeting shortly to be held in Toronto  . "but they would build some miles of  , Tailway this year. He knew nothing  -of"Mr. Kennedy's plans but they would  be considered at. jthe ^pronto,, .meeting  and realizing ��� that Greenwood was  geographically an important point he  ���felt sure that it would not occupy an  insignificent place on the *V. V.   &   E.  -   map.  James Breen was not so communi-  icative as Mr. Sutherland. ��� Personally  he is a prince among good fellows bat  ji newspaper man ia a newspaper  ���capacity ia his bete noir. "Where are  jou going to build yourself Mr. Breen"  -was the first question asked. "If you  ���can tell me where the smelter is to be  built I'll give you. a bonus" was the  -reply. "If you allow the citizens of  Greenwood to select the site they will  .��_vc yon a bonus." This inducement  -did not draw him out and the site for  the smelter remains undecided..  --I am going west''-he said ''to Okan-  .agan Lake or somewhere where they  .have plenty of water he added jok-  ngly. He went as faras Midway but  ���whether he decided on a site or not is  not known.

' - X      .  Mr. Breen has the reputation .among  newspaper, men of-being-.the hardest  man in the province to interview, and  he himself says that he is .riot lookihg  for any advertising through the press  .or otherwise, but believes in letting the  work show for itself when the properties-arrive'-'at the shipping stage, and  something tangible can be shown in the  way of tonnage. It is a pity there are  not more men who, like Mr. Breen, do  there mining in the ground, instead of  oh paper or with their,mouths. After  being warned that Mr. Breen would say  nothing the Pioneer man called on him  and found him at th.e:B'robklyn engine  house, where-the new ���compress'of'.'is  how being installed.:  Asked as to how. the Brooklyn, Stem-  winder, Rawhide and Idaho were showing up since he had taken hold of* the  proper-ties for development, Mr. Breen  stated that he was more than satisfied.  In fact the result had more thau equalled  his expectations. It was very satisfactory indeed. As is well known,  splendid ore bodies have been opened  up in the Brooklyn. Rawhide and Stem-  winder, and the Idaho is not far, if  any, behind.  It is the intention of the , management to., begin shioments some time  this year, when the properties being  developed were in_a position to maintain an output steadily, and when ad  ditional railway facilities arc afforded,  which would undoubtedly be some  time this year.  Mr. Breen stated that the location  of the site for the 500-ton smelter,  which the Dominion' Copper Co., will  build for the reduction of their own  ores, had not yet been definitely settled,  but it would be in a short time. Several  sites were now under consideration,  and a selection would be/ made before  long and the active work of construct-  on started this summer. As to whether  it would be a custom smelter, Mr.  Breen did not think that there was  m uch custom ore to be obtained in the  Boundary, as large properties must  have their own reduction works. However, he expected to get considerable  ore tonnage from the mines at Republic,  a nd the smelterwonld be located with  that end in view. It is expected that  it will be built, some point on the Kettle  river, on this side qf the line.  ;y. V.  St B. IN PHOBNIX.  "^--7a8t=Siturday"Chiei--Engineer-Kennedy, of the"V. V^ & E. surveying  party, was in Phoenix in consultation  with Mr. Breen in regard to the company's; operations in; Phoenix.'' As  Mann, McKenzie & Co., with J. J. Hill,  are the owners of the V., *V. & E.  charter, it goes without saying that  they will undoubtedly build to their  own mines in Phoenix, to secure the  ore tonnage of the Brooklyn group.  Preliminary lines have been run to  Phoenix from both- Carson and Midway, but it has not yet been decided  which rout will be taken advantage of.  The track can be brought in eithe  way, and it would be a simple matter  to reach the Knob Hill mine also with  a switchback if necessary. At any  rate, it is a settled thing that the line  will be built this year, and the depot  will probable be located on the Idaho  flat.  LOCATION -.OR LARGE MACHINERY  PLANT  It has been practically decided that  the'large permanentplant forthe operation of the Brooklyn, Stemwinder and  Idaho will be located on the Idaho  ground, on the flat below where the  present Idaho hoist is situated. The  compressor now being installed at the  plants now in use, will answer for  development purposes for the time  being, but when the properties begin  to ship steadily to the company's own  smelter, it is expected that a machinery  plant commensurate with the plans of  the management of ihe-company will"  be installed.  WILL PLAT TOWNSITE AT ONCE.  Mr. Breen stated that the directors  of.the company had decided to plat a  portion of the ground held by them  without further delay, and that it  would be placed on the market as soon  as it is-surveyed into town lots and the  necessary formalities gone through  with. It was the expectation of the  management to lay out two streets  which will connect with the streets  already laid out in the Old Ironsides  townsite,*and also with' those in the  Rumberger townsite, thereby making  ths. connecting link that would join the  whole corporation.

Tuesday evening at the office of H.  M. Keefer local dissatisfied share-  holdersin -the Morrison Mines, limited,  held'a meeting at which 216,000 shares  /vere represented.. Previous to the  meeting;, being called- to order W. T.  Smith was requested Wgive the reason  why E. J."-Roberts of Spokane, formerly, president of the company, had so  abruptly resigned. *V Mr. Smith.in reply  stated that he was iu receipt of a.letter  from. Mr. Roberts giving ashis reason  for resigning that the directors','during'  his absence from the city, had levied  assessments Nos. 10 and 11, and, that  on his return and hearing of the action  taken he had expressed his indignation  at the action and tendered his resignation.  The meeting was called to order by  Julius Elrich being appointed to the  chair. C. "W. Vedder was elected per-  manant secretary. The chairman, for  the benefit of stockholders not present  at the first meeting read a synopsis of  the proceedings and called upon H. M.  Keefer, a member of the committee  appointedi-at'that' meeting to mako.a-  report. ' ;    ��� ' -  Mr. Keefer outlined the work done by  his committee on the'advice of J. P.  Myers-Gray whom the commit-e-i en ���  gaged to attend to the necessary* legal  formalities. A formal demand had  been made at the local office of the"  company for the? examination of ths  books and f or-an extraordinary general  meeting. '* he books were in Spokane  being made up. The committee"' had  instructed A. G. Hanauer, a broker, to  apply in person at the head office to inspect the books. This had been, done  but the directors refused Hanauer permission.to examine them. A summons  was next taken out, affidavits procured  and an- application made to Hon.  Justice Drake of the supreme court for  a^emporaryBinjunction.--On--the_-16th  his, lordship signed the following  injunction.: .   ^ ..  "It is ordered that the defendants  the Morrison Mines, limited, (Non-  Personal Liability) and the directors  thereof be, and they are and each of  them hereby restrained from- levying  or collecting the assessments of the  said company numbers 10 arid 11 mentioned in their notice of assessment  dated the 23rd day of April, 1901. or  otherwise proceeding against the said  company under the said assessment  notice, for the space, of fifteen days  from the date hereof, with liberty to all  parties in the meantime to apply on  forty-eight hours notice,"  George Collins, another member of  lhe committee, explained that the  object of obtaining the injunction was  to allow shareholders not, registered to  transfer stock so that they could have  a voice in any meeting called by the  directors or by the court. If company  had called a meeting previous to  obtaining this injunction they would  have no voice or vote. It was now  proposed to obtain signatures to a  petition addressed to the directors calling upon them to hold an extra-ordinary general meeting in Greenwood.  For this purpose at least one-fifth of  the shareholders, registered on the  books, were necessary to compel a  meeting being called. If the directors  refused this request, which he considered a most reasonable one, the  courts would be appealed to and an  order obtained for the holding of such  a meeting. On Mondav a second de  mand had been mad<_ at the local office  to examine the books, but the same  were not back from Spokane. Mr.  Hanauer was also directed to apply for  an inspection,' but a second time had  been met with a tefusal. It looked to  him as though the directors did not  w<int aijyone to sie the. books 'and he,  asked his hcarer.s to draw their own  conclusions. A 1 lhe���local shareholders  wanted was their rights for ; an'- examination of the affairs of the company aud a meeting to be called in this  city. This the directors had seen fit,to  ignor and there was nothing else but to  appeal.to the courts.  C; W." Vedder- reiterated his former  demand made at the first meeting for  a. change of ..management,, and the  chairman suggested that E. J. Roberts  should be asked to again take the  presidency.  Mr. Gray was called upon and explained fully the proceedings leading  up to the obtaining of the injunction.  It meant a stay for 15 'days within  which time. local shareholders could  get certificates made oat in their own  name and he requested'*- those, present  who' were shareholders, to "sigh a  requisition for a general meeting. =  On motion it was decided to draw up  and send.to all shareholders a circular  letter setting forth the stand being  made" by.local shareholders and appealing for co-operation. In. this connection George. Collins was appointed to  obtain all the proxies of those favourable to the stand being taken by local  shareholders.  The chairman in his closing"remarks  pointed out that the gathering was not  for the purpose of reflecting anything  of a personal'nature on the management. It was simply a business proposition to find out just what money  had been received and how it had been  expended. To do th*s the books must  be examined and a thorough accounting made. He asked for a list of stock  represented and it was found that 216,-  000 shares could be obtained here, beside proxies from out of town stockholders. After thc appointment of a  committee to draft the circular letter  to be sent stockholders the meeting  ���adjourned. ',,*__,       . ���..���!,..  SAM LARSEN'S HOTEL AT ROCK  CREEK HELD UP.

Scotsmen were enthused and all  lovers of good music charmed by Gavin  Spence and Flora McDonald at the  Auditorium on Thursday evening last.  Theaudience was a large one andj the  vigorous encores given every number  were eloquent tributes to the merit of  the entertainment.  The concert was a two hour delineation of Scottish character. Both were  dressed in the Scottish  costume. ; Mr.  One of the most daring robberies in  the history of the interior took'place  on Saturday night when-two men armed  with guns held up  S.

Mr.-L/arsen,  Dresser, Peterson and the  blacksmith at Ropk Creek were in the  bar until about 9:30 Saturday evening  when they decided to go into the parlor  to listen to some music 'on  the piano.  No sooner had they seated themselves  than   two   masked   men   armed   with  pistols entered the rooms arid ordered  them to throw up  their   hands.' Mr.  Larsen   thinking   they   were fooling,  joked about the matter but the larger  man of the two pointed the gun directly  at him stated they meant business and again ordered him - to throw  up his hands.   Mr. Larsen   complied  and the smaller man reached into his  inside vest pocket and secured a purse  containing $400 in "cash  and several;  notes.   Larsen asked that the notes be  returned as they were of no value except to himself.   "You'll get the notes  all right" was the reply. Peterson was :  then searched "and two' "or three dollars  in   cash   secured.      About   $100 waa  taken from Dresser.   The blacksmith  was not searched.   The larger man  kept the company covered while the  other proceeded to the bar and broke  into the cash register.   He secured the;  loose cash out overlooked $35 in billa  in a back drawer.   He then broke the  telephone connection and orderingtheaa  to remain in the house fifteen minute*  both men decamped with their hooty.  Next morning the purse with the notes  was  found  outside.   No clue  to the  robbers has yet been found.  Take your prescriptions to the  Windsor Drug Store, W. E. Anderson,  Greenwood.  Spenccs introductory"fen^rkvxleyerly  protrayed Scottish peculiarities.

THE GREENWOOD WEEKLY TIMES.  COMPRESSED AIR.  Compreaaed air recently prevented  the suffocation of thirty-five men shut  up in the New York Rapid Transit  tunnel at 181st street, by a dynamite  explosion which wrecked thc hoisting-  gear in the shaft. "Tbe shaft at this  point," says Engineering News, "ia 131  feet deep and the tunnel only extended  about half a city block each way from  the shaft. At noon, on March 21,  abont 50 pounds of dynamite exploded  from some unknown cause in this  short section of tunnel, and one of the  hoiating-cages waa wrecked and the  other was so damaged that it would  not work for eome time. The thick  fumes of the exploded dynamite were  suffocating the thirty-five men then in  the tunnel, and the prompt action of  Engineer John G. Mullen, who at once  turned on the air compressors at full  speed, alone saved them from death.  The men lay for over half an hour face  down in the tunnel and breathed the  freah air sent them by Engineer  Mullen, while the damaged cage was  being repaired. When the men were  finally brought to the surface it was  found that nearly all of them were  burned apout the face and hands, and  three were bleeding profusely from  lacerated wounds- Most of the clothing worn by these men was torn into  shreds. The presence of mind and tht  quick action of Engineer Mullen alone  saved the thirty-five men from death."  PROMPT  DELIVERY  V. & X. TEL. 123.  Mr. E.

It would have been unwise from a political standpoint and  injurious to the public interest for the  Laurier government to give any encouragement to a government who are  responsible for the recent railway  legistation. We will take the liberty  of giving Mr. Dunsmuir a pointer. If  he is anxious to secure the construction  of raihvays that will be for the oenerit  of this province, if he can suggest a  plan that will commend itself to the  people of this province, let him take  the represantatives of the Laurier  government in this province into his  confidence and-we feel sure that they  will will not be turned down atOttav.;.  It may be gratifying to the Colonist  to know that Uritish Columbia was  denied railway assistance this year  simply because B. C. rep.e .entives at  Ottawa pointed to the actions of the  Dunsmuir government as a good and  sufficient reason why there should be  no co-operation. So long as Mr.  Dunsmuir lends himself aud his  government to Joe Martin in order  that the stormy petrel may : e ure what  are in his and not iu the country's interest, Ottawa will give him but scant  consideration.  LIBELLING LAURIER.  A wail comes from the Victoria Col-  om6t;-y-It __87ier^  Dominion .government''.refusedTtbyco.'  operate .with Mr. Dunst-mir in .-his  railway policy. It 'ftdints ; to tbe. fact  that Mr. DniiBamir and; Mr. Eberts  ���went to Qttawa, made a strong caie for  the province, and notwithstanding all  thi��i the Dominion government re-  f rains from giving any subsidy to any  British Columbia railway, It loudly  demand* for better terms and more  liberal'. treatment at the hands of the  Dominion government. Were:. the.  Colonist not -so intimately associated  with Mr. Dunsmuir it could easily see  that the fault lies not at Ottawa but at  Victoria. * Whatever the -Dominion  government xniffht have wished to do  in the shape of bonusirig- B. (^.railways, the absurd railway; policy of the  Provincial government effectually precluded the possibility of aid from  ��� Ottawa. Briefly Mr. Dunsmuir went  to Ottawa to ask for the co-operation of ���  the Dominion government, in assisting  the construction of railways to connect  the coast with Kootenay, to open up  the northorn portion of Vancouver  Island and to give transportation  facilities in the northern portion of the  province. Mr. Maxwell's charge that  Mr.   P-msmuir subordinated the two  ff^JZxxi��� V*. **" .���"=��� J "^ "  Heavy and SheMardwdre, Groceries and  Provisions,  other railway* proposition .to his own  pet; scheme; of...extending the E. &.N.  railway to Cape Scott need not be considered. We will take it for granted  that Mr. Dunsmuir honestly and  enegetically endeavoured to interest  the. Dominion government in the  general railway policy as outlined  above. He called parliament together.  His business government foreshadowed  in a speech from the throne a businesslike policy to aid in the construction of  these jrailways. ...  But as the session advanced the unholy alliat.ee with one Joseph Martin  became more strongly cemented and  the business like railway policy degenerated into a bewildering patchwork of makeshifts and clumsy expedients to place the mainland in the clutches of the Canadian  Pacific^railway and allow Vancouver  Island to become still further absorbed  by the D'uneumirian maw: In the  face of public opinion, in the face of an  almost, unanimously expressed desire  for railway competition, the railway  policy waa further exploited in corporation interests. The hand of Joseph  directed and controlled the Dunsmuir  business administration. He succeeded  in securing the passage of the loan bill  in such shape as completely f ustrated  the wishes of the people and completely  balked those who were ready and willing to give railway competition.  Can the Colonest wonder at the  Dominion government's refusal to  hand over railway subsidies to encourage railway schemes that have degenerated from being business propositions in the public interests to gold  brick schemes in corporation interests.  The strength of the Laurier govern  ment does not lie in the private wealth  of any of its members, nor because a  fortuitous combination of circumstances foisted it on the public. It is  rather  because it   represents   public  Partizan politicians are not very -  particular about the ammunition U6ed  in carrying onparty warfare. This was'  illustrated a short time ago when au  incident that took place in.the house;of  commons was exploited in-- all the  Scottish settlements:in Canada with a  view to prejudicing the Scot6 against  the Sir Wilfrid., Laurier. It appoaro  that oh the night in question a dinner  was given in Alynier.a town at the end  of a tramline abont six miles from  Ottawa. The jolly party returned  abQutr,< midnight -and ��� ���.-havistjjf piper  '���And'erson' with thei��-*they raw-chad into  the house coau-aons to the -.tirring-  sound of the ba^g pipes. The. house  was iu -session aad its .leader Sir Wilfrid very properly a8_ceid;t-__it the; playing cease. *A11 over the country dispatches were sent to the effect that 6ir  Wilfrid objected to the bag pipes and aa  the. pipes are dear to every true S.eot  this alleged antipathy is supposed to  lose the premier many votes at the next  election. Several years ago a similar  incident was used with good effect in a  'campaign^ At that time Sir David  Macpherson was a promiaent figure in  Canadian politics and as he was a  strong conservative he was a targrt  for Sir Richard Cirtwright'e punguent  criticism. Sir David's name was connected with.one of the numerous deals  that were exposed; at the time of.the  Pacific scandal and Sir Richard in his  wrath accused him of "inheriting the  predatory instincts of his ancestors'".  Throughout the Campaign the sentence  wis quoted 'as* a reflection on Scotsmen in general and no amount of explanation would disabuse Scottish  minds of'this impression. .'���;'���:  The recent incident at Ottawa has  led to considerable discussion in the  newspapers of .the.eM.t,rand_ans.ortsiof  suggestions are made "with a view to  clearing up the charge. Oiie paper  ventures the suggestion that it would  be a good plan to treat the Premier to  some bag. pipe music and see how he  stands it.."Historical evidence can be  cited to prove that people not accustomed to bag pipe music become panic  stricken when they hear it. It only  recently that in Greenwood Gaviri  Spence   told    of the English in '45���  Dun-founded the English   they   saw,  . tbey saw ;, .  Dumfbunded they a' heard the blaw,  the blaw ;      y   ,  Dumfounded they a'ran awarawa'  From the hundred pipes au' an' au* a"  Were Sir Wilfrid placed under such  a test he might exclaim like the English tourist of whom the poet   writes  when he heard the pipes :  The    sassenach   screamed    and    the  sassenach danced ;  He shreaked  in  his agony, bellowed  arid pranced; '.''������  If you really must play on that cursed  affair,  LIMITED.

Another railway which is not "political" is the proposed railway from  Vernon to Midway. If built it would  give transportation facilities to the  farmers of one of the finest ranching  districts of the province.

Mr. John Caranajh, secretary of the  Santa Anita Mining-Company operating at Bolanas,Jalisco and Zacatecas,  Mexico, in an interview with a repre-  eentatire of Modern Mexico recently  regarding the copper belt which is now  attracting much attention from capitalists said:  "The copper belt, in which the Anita  Mines are situated, runs through the  States of Jalisco and Durange in  Mexico, and into the States of Arizona,  in the United States, and is withont a  doubt the richest copper belt in the  universe. It has attractecd the Calumet and Hecla people from the United  States, who have invested $10,000,000.  The Rothschilds have between twenty  and thirty millions invested; Phelps,  Dodge & Co., of New York, have,  millions in copper, and many more  millions are invested by copper kings  from all parts of the world. I need say  nothing of Arizona, as this State is  famous the world over for its copper,  production. It is predicted that the  greatest boom the world has ever seen  in copper will come this summer. The  copper mines of the world are simply  unable to supply the unparalleled  demand for copper, and the consumers  of this precious "metal are turning  pleadingly with outstreached hands to  Mexico for assistance. When we consider that the copper from this belt  carries considerable gold and silver  and.the labor being so* much less than  in the United States, it can readily be  seen' that without question, it is to become an important factor in the copper  world."

PHOENIX   CHINESE   CASE  They Were Charged With Unlawful  Assembly   in  Connection   Witb  Driving Chinaman from Phoenix.  M. H. Roy and G. Durrcl were  ^quitted~at~tEe"V^  charge of unlawful assemply at  Phoenix. The jury were: S. C. Smith  (foreman), W. Clark, J. Donaldson, D.  Shook, C. Stickney, T. Hurst, T. Leduc,  E. L. Morand, J. Genier, T. French,  A.   Evans and Jas. Grinton.  A. D. Maclntyre, of Kamloops, acted  as private prosecutor along- with A.  MacDonald, and the defence was conducted by R. B. Kerr, of Phoenix. The  case in brief was as follows: ���  On the Sth of January last John L.  Parker, superintendent of tlie Dominion Copper Co., attempted to bring a  Chinaman into Phoenix as cook in his  private house. The unions of Phoenix  had decided that no mongolians were  to be admitted into their town, and upon  arriving at the boundaries of the city.  Mr. Parker discovered a barricade  across the street, and he was stopped  by a mob of from 300 to 500 excited  men, who hooted him aud unhitched  his horses from the sleigh. He met a  man named McBean, who acted as  Spokesman for the crowd, aud told Mr.  Parker that he was violating the sentiment of the cornmum.y iu bringing in  a Chinaman. He was armed with a  revolver, but it was taktn from his  pocket, the seat of the sleigh overturned  and its occupants pulled out on the  road. The Chinaman was escorted to  the outskirts of the town and sent back  to Greenwood. Mr. Parker swore that  he recognized Durrel as one of the most  loud-spoketi members of the crowd.  Mr. Clive Pringle, a lawyer who is  solicitor for the Mining Co., had preceded Mr. Parker in another conveyance, and was admitted through the  barricade. He was present at the fracas, and swore that he recognized, the  prisoner Roy, who stood.close to him  beside the sleigh; although upon cross  ���examination he acknowledged that his  sight was not very good, and that it  was pretty dark at the time.  The Chinaman, Rev.  J.   M.
