Shallenberger, manager  of the Moreen, came in from Spokane the past week to inspect the  work being done'on the property.  Mr. Thomas is temporary superintendent of the Dominion Copper company's- mines'.until the vacancy caused by the' resignation of  Mr. Drummbnd is filled.  -  The B.' C. smelter is putting in  a big supply of coke, and even if  there is. a strike in the coal regions  it will have enough of fuel stored  to run for several months.  The simple apron device - lately  --put'into'operation by- the���������B. C.  ' smelter for the feeding of air into  ��������� the blast - vastly increases the production of the works.    The genius  who thought of it will make millions for the smelter company.  the new hoist 'and electric' motor  are at the mine ready to be put in  place.     The   working  shaft  has  lately been  timbered,  and everything put itfvfihape  for "development as soon as the electric-'power  is turned on.    The  work; done on  the Moreen consists of two shafts,  70 a,nd-65 feet, a  102-foofc tunnel,  and 125 feet   of  open   crosscuts.  The    ledge   so   far    as    it   has  been uncovered is 75-feet in width.  The property has been  idle for the  past six months  waiting the ar-  rival of machinery.    A.-J. Morrison is in charge of development.  -  . It is said that as soon as tbe new  furnace is in operation, at the  Boundary Falls smelter1' the force  at the Sunset-iu Deadwood camp  - will be increased. There are at  present about twenty-five ' men  working at the. Sunset, and this  force will probably be iucreased to  fifty or sixty. .   ->.v">(,,-.  ��������� iji     ������?   r  Ther-Last Chance in 'Copper  camp is to be worked.

A diamond drill is to be used on  the Elkhorn to ascertain the'position and extent of the vein.' The  crosscut on the footwall from the  300-level is now in 105 feet. Iu  tho last few feet there has' been a  change in the formation and the  lead may be encountered with a  feet more of work. However," it is  the intention of the management to  thoroughly proBpeeb the property  with a diamond .'drill.  W. H. Jeffery, M. E., has resigned the position of superintendent of the Crescent Mines and will  leave for Cobalt next week to take  charge of the Jacobs mine in that  district. Mr. Jeffery has been in  the Boundary district for a nuin-  ber of years, and during tliat time  lias been connected ��������� with most of  the high-grade mines either as consulting engineer'or superintendent.  For the past.six months he has  had charge of development on tho  Crescent in . Skylark camp, on  which electric machinery will  shortly be installed.  A special meeting of-the- shareholders   of The Morrison  Mines,  Limited, will be held in tho office  of A.  M.   Whiteside,  Greenwood,  on^the 15th iust, at 12 noon, for  the purpose of considering and, if  thought fib,'of sanctioning the sale  of all the company's assets to The  Dominion Copper Company.    The  annual general meeting of the com7  pany   will- be   held on "the same  day at 1 p._m. for the purpose of  electing directors and transacting  any other business that may come  before the" meeting.    The properties of the Morrison Mines have  been-idle for - a numberl of vears,  aud should the Dominion  Copper  company obtain control it would  not  only   ensure continuous   development   of the Morrison,   but  would place:the Dominion Copper  in a position to produce as large a  tonnage as the Granny "company/  The Morrison is" situate near the  Mother Lode- in Deadwood camp,  and has a Iarge~body of low-grade  ore.    Like other, low-grade properties in the Boundary district it  cannot be   profitably handled by  any but a company owning its own  reduction  works.    The Dominion  Copper people, if they gain control,  will    doubtless    make" a success  where the Morrison  people failed.  They, have their own smelter and  doubtless will be able to treat the  ore more economically along with  the  ore   from   their other mines  than   could a company  handling  the ore from the Morrison alone.  put in a machine shop,'-as the business prospects are immense.    Both  local smelters have guaranteed all  their   work",   aud  the   constantly  growing mining   activity   in   the  Boundary assures tho success of  this much-needed industrial enterprise.      With    a    machine   shop  in  addition   to the foundry, employment wonlJ  be given   to 20  men.    The   establishment of this  institution in our midst is of'great  local  benefit,   and   just   what  is  needed by the mines and smelters  of- the, district.    We bespeak , for  the proprietors a large and .constantly growing business.    Success  to   the   enterprise,   and   may   its  cupolas never grow cold.  OPTICIANS.  ,������  GREEN\VOOD,.,B. p.; THURSDAY; APRIL  ":"���������   '>  AN IMPORTANT INDUSTRY.  John Morau returned tho past  week after spending the winter iu  Southern California. Mr. Moran  owns ' a half iu'tercst in the Big  Copper iu' Copper camp. When  askedk regarding ^the' rumor that  work was to bo started on the Big  Copper, he said that there was no  "truth -nithe rumor. A quarter in-  tercst m the property, was owned  by tho late Geo. B. McAulay of  Spokane, His son. who is now 15  or 16 yearB of age, is heir to the  interest. Until he comes of age  there is little hope of work being  ���������resumed. Tho owner of the other  quarter interest is Mr. McMichael  of Toronto. There would bo no  difficulty in obtaining mony to develop the miuo and build reduction  works to treat the ore, could a title'  be secured to the McAulay interest.  Work will be started on the Moreen in Deadwood.-camp lu .about  ton days.; This week tho 35-foot  gallows frame was completed, and  Under the management of Geo.  M Holt, the Greenwood branch of  the Nelson Iron Works is rapidly  becoming a realization. The works  are just ou the edge of Greenwood  iu the delightful suburb of Aua-  conda.    Operations will commence  uext'week, when it is pxpected the  first castings will  be made.    The  opening of the foundry lias been  delayed for three months owing to  tho difficulty in procuring material  and freight.    Most of the iron and  steel   works   have   orders   seven  mouths   ahead of their capacity,  and, owing to tho strain-on the  railroads, it has often taken seven  days   for   freight  to  come   here  from Nelson, the public will understand that it is uo easy matter to  get  a foundry started on time in  the Boundary.   Tho foundry and  pattern Bhops occupy a building  48 x 50 feet, while the office will  bo in a separate building 16 x 20  feet in size.   In the building are  small and largo cupolas, brass furnace, etc.    The shafting is already  in place,   the* big cupola will be  finished  this  week,   and   by   tho  middle of the month   the works  will bo ready to turn out all kinds  of iron, bronze, copper, brass work,  etc.   Ifo.founcjry in the mountains  will  have as great a capacity for  big work, it being possible to make  castings weighing ten tons.  It will  bo almost necessary for the firm to  Anglers' Association.  A_meeting was held in the city  hall Thursday evening of last week  with the object of forming an  Anglers' association. There were  about a dozen gentlemen present,  Maj'O-i Bunting occupyiuy the  chair.  A motion was carried to-form an  association-- for*< the protection ^of  game' and "'fish'. , .Those, present  gave their consent to become mem-  bers'of-ibhe association.    -  Mr. Palmer spoke in reference  to asking-tho ������������������ co-operation of the  press in the" undertaking, and also  on the benefits which might be do-  rived from affiliation,_ with other  associations throughout tho province.        "      ,     ..   ,  Mr. McK-io spoke in regard to  the taking of small fish under legal  size, aud the desirability of a close  season until after high water. Also  the restocking of the creek. '  - .It  was moved   by.-Mr. McRae,  seconded-'-by:Dr.~Siinm'onc,   that  the following tofficers be elected:  President, secretary-treasurer, and  not more than five others  to form  an executive committed.    The following were elected:  President, G. B. Taylor.  Secretary-treas.,  Jas. S. Biruie.  Executive   committee,    Messrs.  McRae, jBoak, and   Wright,   with  a representative each from  Midway and Boundary Falls.  The meeting then adjourned till  Monday evening..  At the Monday night's meeting  it was decided to call the organization the " Kettle River Game and  Fish Protective Association, with  territory on the Kettle vriver aud  tributaries north and West of Midway. The membership fee was  fixed at 81.  A committee, composed of  Messrs. Bash, White, Oliver, Dale  aud Boak, was appointed, to solicit  members.  Tho secretary was instructed to  have notices printed and posted,  asking tho public to co-operate  with the association.  Another meeting will be held in  the city hall Saturday at 8 p. m.  repairs an average of 8100 for each  bridge, which is a very low estimate, the balance left from $3,500  would be '$2,700, or about $40 per  mile for repairs "to roads.    Should  one of the seven bridges be carried  away, or'should^ AhvNaden decide  to carry out his promise to the  people of Rock Creek and build a  new bridge-across the ICettle river,  the whole ���������'estimate would be ex'-"  hausted.- Surely Mr; Naden could,  have, placed the .necessities of the  district before.the government in  such a manner ttiat some slight attempt could  have been made   to  keep the rnost traveled portion of  the road in repair.     '       -  'The neighboring districts'appear  to. have fared' better than Greenwood.    Grand Forks gets $7,000,  [ Similkam'eeu- $39,000, and Okana-  gan $38,000. The people of Green-'  wood of course did not expect Mr.  Naden to do ;as  much for his district, being in 'opposition, as such  energetic and-' experienced men as  W. T. Shatford and Price Ellison,  but they did expect   him to equal  t-ie member fci- Grand Forks, who  is also in opposition, and  belongs  to    that    "revolutionary"    class,  known as Socialists. But the member for Grand "Forks, when he accepted the nomination of his party,  intended'to remain"'a resident of  and work  for the interests of his  district.    No false pretenses about  the member for Grand Forks.  and thus made himself 'solid with  his Slocan constituents. "Our  Bill" "is no great shakes on peddling hot air, but when it comes to  shrewd, mental, 20th century  methods of doing business he gets  there with both feetJ.

An official of a silver producing  property   is   of   the opiniou that  prices for silver metal will soon  advance, despite tho recent falling  off from  last year's best figures.  He accounts for this belief by saying :    "The   demands   upou    the  world's silver supply, by the various  governments   in   connection  with subsidiary coinage arc greater  than the ordinary person realizes  and are constantly  increasing because new territory in tho eastern  countries is being developed and  requires silver for its proper con-  sumatiou.  "Iu the fine arts silver is becoming more common every day.  There was a timo when silver  plated ware was good enough for  tho household, but nowadays  nothing but solid silver knives,  forks'and spoons would oven be  considered.

And it is an ominous fact that  in Venice the seat of this disease was  the Senate.  There is a difference between the  Venetian and the American Senate  The grnnd seignoirs who ruled and  ruined Venice sat in tho Senate hall  thnmselves and passed daily from the  counting room to tho legislative  chamber. We have specialized things  to a higher point than they ever did,  and wo nro more economical of our  time. Our lords of finance, for tho most  part, send their stool-pigeons to the  Senate. Ic would bo an unexpected  act of condescension for anyone of the  half dozen biggest men of Wall straet  to accept a Senatorial chair. They arc  not in that class. If by chance one or  two of them have bought a legislature  and a seat, it is recognize 1 as a foible  or as a concession to the ladies of the  family, affording- a good excuse for  passing the winter at a pleasant watering place like Washington. Nobody  takes such a legislative career seriously,  and the great man of dollars is rarely  found in his place. It is the clerks and  employees of the first rank that must  attend .to such vulgar business.  And what isethe chief business of our  official Senate at Washington, con  trolled by tbe unofficial oligarchy of  Wall street? It is to prevent any  change in the present status of the  business world, which, as experience  has fully proved, is peculiarly adapted  to the needs of financial graft���������a system which .produced tho oligarchy  and which the oligarchy naturally  intends to , perpetuate. The fountain of wealth which. gushes out  from the natural resources of our  country in response to the labor of  man ought to irrigate fairly the whole  surface of the hind, and its water  should circulate in abundance wherever  men contribute their volume Instead  of tliie. we find it dammed up in certain  places far beyond all reasonable, requirements, <and at other points there  are stretches of undeserved desert from  which every drop has been drawn. '  Some months ago I walked up Fifth  ayenuo with a man who is prominent  in finance and innocent of any subversive ideas. !' Dj you know who lives  in that house?" he asked, indicating a  certain, residence. " No," was my  answer. "His name is Blank. Did  you ever hear it before?" "Never."'  " Well, he's worth forty millions." A  few rods further on ho repeated the  same question with reference to another  house, whose owner I ihad never heard  of, and who was the possessor of twenty-  five millions And still a third time he  put a similar question and obtained the  same answer. " I don't know what we  are coming to!" he added. *rEvery  week I'm hearing the names of these  men, utterly unknown to me, who are  worth twenty, thirty, forty and fifty  millions!" And in corroboration of  this I mav say that I saw the death of a  millionaire in the papers some time  ago���������a man whose namo was altogether  new to me���������who was said to have left  an estate of one' hundred and eighty  millions! Doesn't this look just a little  bit like unhealthy congestion���������in a  country, too, where tho. number of  paupers and tramps is continually increasing?

Is it a  more wholesome symptom in the body  politic' . ������������������ j '   ���������  The immense accumulations of  'watered stock" in our telegraph, telephone and express companies show how  much more wo have to pay for their  services than they are worth, and if it  were possible to ascertain the original  cost of our railroads the same thing  would appear with reference to them.  The railroads obtain one tenth of then-  gross earnings from extortionate mail  contracts with tho government. Why?  because tho Senate is there to prevent  any interference with the railway, express, tel. graph aud telephone monopolies.        ���������'.  ������������������������p������fcHqMa������im.MM������M������*  give us "more jobs than men instead of more men   than jobs."  Under, such conditions self-respecting men would refuse tips.     They  would  work for no one except for  full "pay,    and   getting full pay  would reject degrading gratuites.  But under' existing conditions, men  in some occupations are employed  at merely nominal   wages with tho  understanding that they shall collect the rest of their wages in the  form of tips.     An instance is the  Pullman, car porter.     His wages  tiro   only   $20  or   825   or   ������30 a  month.    In his case, therefore, tho  tips he collects are not in reality  tips to him; they are tips to the  Pullman   company.       The   same  thing is true of waiters.    Their  wage's are lower where   tips are  abundant than where there are 110  tips.     It is the employer not the  waiter,    who   gets   the tip.     Of  course,   this  would all he changed'  if everybody stopped tipping.    But  everybody  will  not stop  tipping,  and  auy^attempt at reforming the  tipping   habit will, iu the process  operate harshly against the class  of employees who are expected by  the employers to take tips in lieu  of wages.  One rumor will spread faster  than forty contradictions to stop it.  "When times are booming, salt  away a few dollars for the turn of  the tide.

MARSHALL, Prop,  Some Good Float  WHAT OF SOCIALISM  Some time ago a well known  Chicago university professor made  the following statement in an address in Milwaukee:- There are  things you must' know if you are  to - be classed among the educated;  they are 'the science of evolution,  the higher criticism'' of the Bible,  and Socialism.''  Tho point made was that while  we,' individually, may approve or  disapprove of one or all of these,  the fact remains that all of them  are being, discussed and perhaps  accepted by thousands of the prominent thinkers of the day! If there  be anything in any of' these things  that may prove dangerous to civilization or to morality (which terms  ought to be synonymous) it is time  for us not to disregard it,' but to  find and present the danger directly to the advocatora-  The people of ihe entire country  have been shocked and stunned by  the revelations" of graft in political  life. And having laid bare the  fact that under the present system  we are completely in the bauds of  the trust octupus. and that there is  one code of law for the rich, and  an entirely different one for the  poor. The chief thing now before  the people is to find the remedy.  And fluding tho correct,remedy  may be a somewhat-more difficult  problem ^than diagnosing-the disease. Aud this, notwithstanding  the fact that we arc overrun with  thousands of piid exploiters who  have the remedy on their tongue's  end.  ' Undoubtedly, the idea of the  originators of our democracy was  that the will of the majority should  rule. This does uot guarantee  ideal government, for. the majority  may be bsid or ignorant. "But in  our own case the great mass of the  people have tied, their votes over a  dead issue, leaving the government  in the hands of a plutocracy quite  as opposed to government by the  people as is the autocracy of Russia. - Their "own fault? Yes, but  we must consider that millions of  dollar? of the people's money arc  spent by the plutocracy quite as  opposed to government by the  people as is the autocracy of Russia. Their own fault? Yes, but  we must consider that millions of  dollars of the people's money are  spent by this plutocracy to spread  false education among the people.  A utocracies are founded far easier  than they are overthrown, aud if  now we succeed in becoming a real  democracy, without first undergoing a red revolution, we will reverse the rule of the ages. But the  rule can be. reversed if enough  people take to doing their own  thinking, instead of drifting along  until wo are iu the very throes of  civil war.  To offer a remedy for the ruts  into which wo have fallen, is not  tho purpose of this article, neither  is it to call attention to the efficiency of   the 'Republican, Democratic,   Socialist    or    Prohibition  parties.    It is to call attention to  tho necessity of tho people becoming thinkers, and not,  in Longfellow's    words, . "dumb  driven  cattle."    Also to call attention to  the fact that the producers of the  north and .of tho south can never  unite under the name Republican  or Democrat.     Prejudice   is too  strong*for this, and a change of  namo at least is necessary.  It is claimed by some leading  writers, that Socialism and Democracy ore the same. A comparison ��������� of the principles ought to determine. The fact remains that  Socialism whether or not it holds  the relief tho workiugman hopes  for, i.9 spreading over the country  at a tremendous pace. It is acquiring tho impetus of a forest Gre.  Republican omtora aro Bhouting  that   Socialism; uicauB the ovor-  #':  throw;of oiir system of government  and if this refers to our system of  graft, the nation will survive. Bu  any of the several parties in the  field that can receive the united  vote of the' producers of the  country's wealth cannot but in  time bring relief from the present  condition of r coagulated wealth.  Mistakes will be"'made, of course..  The . Republican party need but  give a brief review to its forty-six  year" of , almost uninterrupted  power to be able to condone mistakes in a new party.  To look for immediate and full  relief, however, from present  wrongs in government ownership,  of railroads and other utilities, is  to, "take too optimistic a view.'  When our .churches,. allied with  evolution, shall have effaced the  quality of 'selfishness, which most  of us retain in a greater or less degree, then the coming Brotherhood  of Man will be easy. But present  conditions -are - the ones that must  be met.  A limit on the amount of land  ownable by one person or company  on the number of miles of railroad,  and on' the utilities, might check  tbe tendency of those individuals  who have riot progressed far  enough along tho scale of evolution  to resist taking more than their  share.5, There is a very common and  satisfactory* practice among farmers of nailing strips across the top  of the swine trough..  But, after all, the most serious  difficulty.is that we are in precisely  the condition of the old lady, who,  having acquired a little property,  thought she would tako life easy,  and hired a household 'of servants  to wait on her. But she worked  herself to death ringing the call  bell.��������� Julia C. Cooon! ,  "A Jolley American Tramp"  "A Jolley American Tramp," a  melodiamatic comedy drama, .replete with striking situations  and  startling sensations, [jis  underlined  at Auditorium for one night, Thurs-  day, April llth.    The piece is from  the pen of the author of  !'A Poor  Relation" and "Peaceful Valley,"  two. plays   that   haw   made   Sol  Smith Russel famous.    In   it Mr  Kidder    portrays -an    American  tramp, not as a repulsive,  ever-to-  be-shunned outcast, but as a  man  who through misfortune was compelled to wander upon'the face of  the earth,  but whose heart,  well  kuowing   his   own   distress,   still  blepds for others'   woes,  aud  who  offers even his life to help right the  wrongs of others even more unfortunate than he.    The locale of this  drama is laid in  rural New England, and the motive is greed  for  gold, a greed  with   which even a  husband is sometimes overpowered,  and for which he terribly 'wrongs  his life's partner.     Tho story is  complex and will be well worked  out by a competent cast of gifted  players.

The Phoenix Amalgamated Copper Mines, limited, comprising the  War Eagle, Red Deep, Bald Eagle,  Lulu, Dandy, Missing Link and  Pinhook, all in the Phoenix mining camp, quite near the Granby  properties, have received a favorable offer from a New York syndicate.

The New York peoplo offer $1.75  per share for the treasury stock,  amounting to $350,000.  The same syndicate also offers  $1.50 per "share for an additional  200,000 shares. Thi3 will leave  100,000 shares to be deposited with  the Eastern Townships Bank, to be  held in part 'for a period of two  years from the time (he options arc  executed in favor.of the syndicate.

Yes, sir, said the small boy,  sticking his pole in a hollow stump  of a tree, and proceeding to elucidate.  'The old gentleman thanked him  and went on his way. Three or  four hours later the gcdtleman appeared on the scene again.   -  Caught any fish, my little man?  Naw,  Doh't yon know it's a sin to fish  on  Sunday?  No, was the quick reply.  What is your name, my little  man ?  Billy Smith.  Ever go to Sunday school, William? Know anything about  Jesus ?  No, sir, was the somewhat delinquent reply. '*-  Ever heard of heaven ?
