PremieCgMcBride Expresses
His Views on the East
Kootenay Coal Lands.
Hon. Riehard McBride, accompanied by W. McNeil, assistant to
the chief commissioner, spent Tuesday afternoon and Wednesday morning in Grand Forks. The premier is
making a tour of the interior looking into matters connected with his
department and incidentally glancing over the field from a political
point of view.
Some 25 of the electors who arc
interested in coal locations in Southeast Kootenay met Premier McBride by appointment at thc Yale
hotel on Tuesday night to get his
views on the East Kootenay land
question. The premier stated positively that locators of coal lands in
Southeast Kootenay would get their
rights, but that for certain reasons nothing could be done in the
matter immediately. He said that
he believed the locators in Grand
Forks had done their part by properly staking and advertising their
claims, and assured them that they
had nothing to fear; that they would
be properly dealt with by the government, and would get what they
were entitled to.
When pressed by Mr. Hay as to
their legal rights in the matter, and
the reason for not acting at once
and issue the licenses without delay,
he stated he had not gone into the
legal aspect of the question himself,
and that the government had decided not to take any responsibility
in questions of that nature, except in
routine and necessary business, until they were returned by the peppb,
as they are now only on trial and
have no right to deal with matters
of controversy except as thc present
emergency requires.
Those who are in the inner circle
say that the premier wants to issue
the licenses and will do so, but for
private and political reasons cannot
do more at present than he has
done.

further consider the resignation of
the   pastor,   Rev.  J. R. Robertson,
B. A., the congregation by an almost unanimous vote asked him to

present of loyalty and appreciation
of Mr. Robertson's work were strong

prevailed throughout the meeting.

Serious Charge
Ira Cutler, of Vernon, has been
charged on the information of Frank
Rover, of this city, with obtaining
money from the latter under false
pretenses. So far as the facts are
known, it is alleged that tbe accused
in July of last year sold to Mr. Royex
the stallion "Sapolio," which it
turns out belonged to one David L.
Jones, who had retained title to the
animal until a certain note given
therefor should be paid. Failing
payment of this note, Jones instructed bis solicitors, ('lenient &
Spence, to seize the stallion. This
they threatened to do, when Mr.
Royer settled the claim and laid information against Cutler. Cutler
will appear here to answer to the
serious charge against him, and will
be prosecuted by the crown, which
we understand will be represented
by Mr. Eckstein and Mr. Miller. ®lj? iEfottmg £>mt

Before leaving Ottawa, the British Columbia silver-lead miners'
delegation publicly expressed their
appreciation not only of the action
of the government in acceding to
their request for a bounty on lead,
but also to the unvarying sympathy
and consideration which they received from the members of the
cabinet during the neccessary investigation of this important question.
Too much credit cannot be given
Senator Templeman and our British
Columbia members, especially the
member for Yale-Cariboo, for their
unwavering support of a cause
which we are confident will work as
much to the interest of the province
as a whole as to the mining districts
in particular.

The Body of John Sucksmith
Is Recovered From the
Kettle River.
RASPBERRIES
<*       4>
AND..
The financial year ending June
has been one of unprecedented prosperity for Canada. The revenue on
consolidated account amounted to
the enormous sum of 863,739,271,
giving a surplus of $22,290,168 over
ordinary expenditures, and of $15,-
060,075 over all expenditures combined. All the receipts for the last
financial year are not yet in. When
paid they will augment the total
revenue by about a million and a
half. A number of liabilities incurred during the past twelve
months have also to be met. It is
not thought, however, that the
totalg given above will undergo any
material change, as the receipts and
expenditures still to come will about
balance each other. Canada's big
surplus will give the government a
chance to effect a large reduction in
the public debt if they so desire.
The increase in revenue in 1902-3,
as compared with 1901-2, amounts
to $7,435,577. The ordinary expenditure tmdrwent a reduction of
$806,213, and the capital expenditure a reduction of $4,302,062. The
Dominion has every reason to congratulate itself upon a well-filled
treasury and roseate prospects for
the future.
"The body of John Sucksmith,
mill owner, who was accidentally
drowned in May of last year in Kettle
River, six miles below this city,
was found last Monday at the head
of Cascade dam. The body was
found by Robert Fitzpatrick, who
was working on a boom of logs about
80 feet above the floodgates of the
dam, and when he spread some of
the logs apart the corpse rose to the
surface.
Before Mrs. Sucksmith left, for
England last fall she gave a description of the clothing her husband wore
at the time of the accideut to the
life insurance companies, and also
to Provincial Constable Dinsmore,
for thepurpose of identification if the
body should ever be recovered. An
inquest was held in the court house
last Tuesday on the body found at
Cascade, at which Mr. Dinsmore's|evi-
dence clearly established the fact
that the apparel on the corpse exactly corresponded with Mrs. Suck-
smith's description, thus proving
the identity of the remains beyond
a doubt.
The coroner'8 jury returned a verdict of accidental drowning, and
alsopassed a resolution of appreciation for the valuable evidence given
by Mr. Dinsmore.
The body was interred last Wednesday under the rites of the Church
of England.

WHY GO EAST
Over the sun-burned, sage brush
and alkali plains, when you may
just as well take a delightful, cool
arid comfortable ride through the
heart of the Rocky Mountains in
view of the grandest scenery on the
American continent?
This you can do by travei ng on
the Rio Grande system, the far-
* famed "Scenic Line ofthe World,'"
the only transcontinental line pass
ing through Salt Lake City, Glen
wood Springs, Leadville, Colorado
Springs and Denver enroute to eastern points.
Three daily express trains make
close connections with all trains east
and west, and afford a choice of five
distinct routes of travel. The equipment of these trains is the best, including free reclining chair cars,
standard and tourist sleepers, a pcr-
lect dining car service, and also
personally conducted excursion cars,
each in charge of a competent guide,
whose business is to look after thc
comfort of his guests. No more
pleasant and inexpensive means of
crossing the continent can be found
than is provided by these excursions.

Just What You Want

GOOD SERVICE is composed of two elements
i—excellence of the work and promptness in
the execution. Bad work executed promptly is not good service—good work delivered behind
time is not good service; but the two combine to
make one of the most necessary, but hardest to obtain and often most expensive, requirements of the
twentieth century business man. That we have
learned the lesson in theory we have shown. Our
customers will testify that we have also learned it
in practice.

BOUNDARY MINIS AND SMELTERS
For the past two weeks teams have
been engaged in hauling ore from
the dump at the Moivison
mine to the railway just above Dead-
wood, whence ten cars have already
been taken to the B. C. Copper Co.'s
smelter at Greenwood. It is expected that at least 1000 tons of ore
will be obtained from tbe Morrison
dump. A trial car of ore from the
Ah There mineral claim has also
been sent to the same smelter.
The third furnace has been received at the Boundary Falls smelter. A commencement has been
made 50 install the third blower with
connected engine, received last week
at these works. A scarcity of men
for laboring work is reported from
Boundary Falls.
A few days ago the C. P. R. completed one sidetrack for the Oro Denoro mine, on the Phoenix branch,
and shipments were started from
that property to the Sunset smelter.
Another sidetrack is also being laid
at the same mine to facilitate shipments from other parts of the ore
quarries on that property.
There has recently been some com
plaint by the mines on the Phoenix
branch because of shortage of cars
and power on the part of the C. P.
R. It is understood that neither
the Granby mines, the Snowshoe
nor the Athelstan could ship as
much as desired on that account.
Superintendent Ross, of the Koote-
nay-Boundary branches of the C. P.
R., is expected in this section shortly, the more to familiarize himself
with the requirements of the situation.
Such a legal tangle as the northwest ct untry ha? never seen is certain to bob up in the court shortly
when the jangling interests in the
Lucile Dieyfus company bring actions to get their stock straightened
out, says the Spokesman-Review.
There is genuine stock that has
never changed hands from the time
it'was first issued years ago. There
is stock with the signatures and seal
all straight, but with the amount
raised ten or one hundred fold by
tie ingeniously Secretary Kressly.
There is stock which he wrote himself from his now famous duplicate
book, with the signature of President W. M, Ridpath a rank forgery.
Tnere is stock which has been fooling the experts to decide whether it
bears the real signature of Col. Ridpath or merely a Kressly imitation.
There is genuine stock which was
sent in for transfer, and for which
Secretary Kris-dy returned his own
private brand of bogus certificates.
Then there is this same good stock
which instead of cancelling, Mr.
Kressly sold again upon the market.
There are bunches of stock in which
shares that are genuine, forged,
raised and doubtful are all held by
the same owner. There are 1,100,-
000 shares of forged and raised stock
to a certainty, issued by Kressly
and sprung upon the public in return for sums ranging from 835,000
to $50,000.
