I Western Float  ���������   Last week the  two  and a half  year old sou of Gabriel Eustice  was   being   wheeled   around   in  a baby carriage   and left for a  while on the high sidewalk near  the schoolhouse.    By some means  the ^ carriage   moved   away and  tipped the child down  amongst  the bushes and rocks.    The child  was considerably stunned  by the  fall and was taken to the hospital  where it remained for a few days.  The little one is now borne and  progressing favorably.  On Monday evening a meeting  of the stockholders of the Greenwood Rink was held in the Rink  for the purpose of 'considering a  proposition made by   the' Agricultural Association- with regard  to the purchase of the building  by the  Association.    After considerable discussion the following  motion was carried unanimously,  "That   the   proposition'   of ' the  Greenwood Agricultural Association  in  regard   to   purchase   of  rink be accepted,   and that this  meeting authorize   the directors  to arrange   for transfer of   the  rink property."

He moved  into Nevada in the early days of  mining  excitement, "and  was   a  resident of Centralia, Wash., for  several years.    He came to Camp  McKinney in 1898 where he conducted the dining  room  in Cameron's hotel.    Later he moved to  Oroville where, he took upland  and made his home until a  short  time ago.    He was a Mason and"  connected    with    the  Centralia  Lodge, and a  member of the G.  A, R. of U. S.   He leaves a son,  Noel B. Kelsey at Oroville 'and a I  daughter, Mrs. T. R.

He had held  the position for 17 years.  W. B. McClure is the new editor  of the Creston Review. He comes  from the cent belt, where many a  great editor has been born.  Many   temporary     towns    are  springing up along the line of the  Grand Trunk Pacific railway, between Dome Creek and Tete Jaune |  Cache.  Tbe Robinson and Lequimo sawmill near Grand Forks has a capacity of 00,000 feet of lumber daily.  The log cut this winter was ten  million feet.   ���������       ''.������ '_'���������������������������;:;<-\--'  Fifty years ago camels were  used to pack supplies into the'  Cariboo district.

Nelson  has spring birds nearly < three  months old, and last week in three  days she had twelve hens lay  I thirty-one eggs. Mrs. Nelson will  [establish a large poultry ranch in  the near future.  Charles Gilmore has established  a dog farm. He will only raise  Scotch collies and can find a ready  market for them all over the west.  The   townsite    company     has *  offered to put in with the government and hold au auction sale of  lots this summer."  E. G. Smith has a ranch upon  the east side of Beaver creek, near  Beaverdell, upon which he has  grown excellent apples and crab  apples. This year he has planted  several more varieties of apple  trees and in time he will have a  valuable orchard.  At Carmi, Jim Matthewson has  forty apple trees that will bear  next year.  The soil in and around Carmi is  excellently adapted to the growing  of celery, turnips, onions, potatoes  and other vegetables.   Last year  Billy Nelson.planted one sack of  potatoes and dug;up, twenty-eight.  ...jThe government-owns six blocks   .  in the townsite" of Carmi.  . The Rev.  J."

He fully expects that his experiments in this direction  will be  a  complete success, enabling him to  plainly demonstrate   the  agricultural possibilities of the district to  all who wish to  buy   land   and  settle up the country.     His example might well be followed by  the government in many parts of  the province. ���������  The day is not far distant when  the valley of the West Fork of,  the Kettle river will be filled with  the homes of happy and prosperous  farmers.  GOOD 'MOTOR ROAD  The road  from Grand Forks to  Greenwood,   via Midway,   is   becoming a popular motor drive away  this season.   The part of the roadway on the Canadian side is all in  splendid shape, but the part across  I the line, between Curlew and Mid-  I way, is in poor shape.    The possibilities of this road for motor traffic  should be brought to the attention  of Uncle Sam's border-road representative with a yiew to having it  put  in   good shape.      With this  section fixed up the highway from  Cascade   to   Rock    Creek   would  afford motorists an excellent speedway  of nearly a hundred miles,  which,would be equally attractive  to our American friends as ourselves.���������Grand Forks Gazette.  HARD ON B. C. COAL  Hon. Wm. R. Ross, provincial  Minister of Mines and Forests, was  in Ottawa, recently, interviewing  several cabinet ministers in regard  to British Columbia affiairs. The  chief mission of Mr. Ross relates to  the new fire regulation which have  been promulgated by the Railway  Commission. His main objection  is to a regulation compelling all  railways iu B. C. to use oil aftor  December, 1914. He fears that it  Will bo a serious blow to tho gro>v-  iug coal industries of British  Columbia.  ' ^;  ..   I   -fit  ��������� ,r/*i  "4 tfyzt.

THE  LEDG  Is located at Greenwood, B. C, and can be traced to many parts of  the earth. It comes to the front every Thursday morning, and  believes that hell would close up if love ruled the world. It believes  in justice to everyone; from the man who mucks in the mine to the  Icing who sits on the cushions of the throue. It believes that advertising is the life of trade; and that one of the noblest works of  creation is thc man who always pays thc printer.  The Ledge is $2.00 a year in advance, or $2.50 when not so paid.  It is postage free to all parts of Canada, Mexico, Great Britain and  the county of Bruce. To the United States it is $2.50 a year, always  in advance.  R.  T.  LOWERY  EDITOR    AND    FINANCIER.  GREENWOOD, MAY 23, 1912.  A blue mark hero indicates that your Subscription has  becomo deceased, and that tho editor would once more  like* to commune with your collateral.  Tun west must have lower express and freight rates.  It  may soon  bo   Sir   Richard.  Our Dick haB seen the King.  TnE forest fire is already doing  business in the same old way.  Hath is poor dope.    It hurts the  the moom if he wants to, and publishers havo a perfect right to print  the stuff. All I say is such doings  are not go my taste, and such  authors don't belong to my church,  and hence I have a feeling that  they ought to bo trounced.   ,  There's enough woe and drab-  ness in actual life withont lugging  such things  into print, which we  ���������       i.      pay money for, under the convic-  stomach as much or moro than too  nu tion that we are to be delighted, or,  much booze.  We can remember the time when  whiskey was 20 cents a gallon in  Canada. Tliose good old days are  gone forever.   Hens to right of us. hens to left  of us. hens all around, and not a  single egg in the woodshed. Such  is life in the far west.  Thk French are appreciated in  Quebec, judging from tho number  that were elected to the legislature  in that province last week.  The Great Northern railway is  not noted for keeping its contracts  with the press. It beats the editors  when ever the opportunity presents  itself.  The B.   C.  Government can do-  if hurt, helped.  But what any one wants to write  or others want to read of moral,  physical or spiritual gripes, per se,  is beyond me.  It is no excuse to say that unmixed wretchedness is real. It  may be real, but a miserable, morbid interpretation of it is not real.  And what, after all, we want is  not facts. "We have too many facts  already. We want the interpretation of facts. A true writer is the  priest of facts. He is to make  common things sacramental. He  is to reveal the inner light of  things.  Dante wrote of unpleasant matters, but even in hell his toul  shines for us with a gentle, human  light; he could touch nothing that  meet the demand for the exit of  King Wheat, and all its expansion  for years will be required to meet  that mighty market eeeking yield.  Wheu it is remembered that Saskatchewan with but a small part  of its cultivable area is now producing enough to feed Great Britain, and with but two por cent, of  Alberta land under plow, tho load  of the future on Canada's railway  systems will be something terrific,  and every avenue of exit will be  searched for cheapness and dispatch.  Then will come the halcyon day  for the navigable river and water  systems, even, as now, Eastward  Hudson Bay is being searched all  along its icy shores for harbors,  dockage and channels of commercial  use.    Why not Westward as well  as Eastward?   Why not Westward  as   well as Eastward?   Why not  the Columbia river to tho Pacific  as well as  Hudson's  Bay to the  Atlantic?   With   that   big   ditch  open to tho Pacific ports,  the Atlantic market is as near us as it is  to Fort Churchill or  Port Nelson.  You    laugh!    Before   we   were  born, this great Columbia was the  trade route of thc Interior for the  Northwest Fur and  Hudson  Bay  companies,    who    steamed,     and  rowed, and portaged, from tho Sea  to    Boat   Encampment,    at   the  mouth of Canoe river,   and there  made   entrepot   for   their prairie  posts,  via Athabasca and Yellow  Head.    You   still   laugh!   Before  we   were born,    mountaiu   goats  made natural trails  up  mountain  slopes and  deer   through- forests;  and before, and in our time,   even  velop the country, and make money  at the same time, by borrowing  money at four per cent., and lending it to fanners at eight per cent.  Ihe did not.make glow; for "he believed, and in spite of. all affirmed  the high harmony of the world."���������  Dr. Frank Crane.  We are still besieged with free  publicity schemes. Last week we  received a letter from a preacher  in Brooklyn telling us what he  knew about hell. We are not in  need of any further information  upon that subject.  The Courier has appeared in  Coalmont, and is printed on sunburnt paper. It is full of ads,  newsy paragraphs, and Bpioy editorials. It has set a terrific pace for  a young -journal, which if kept up,  will make it a power in the land.  In" the west a man can rise if he  so wills it and is lucky. In the  good old C.P.R. days, east of  Revelstoke, Bob Green was a cook,  and now he is likely to represent  Kootenay at Ottawa. Some other  cooks should tear a. leaf out of  Bob's book.  Last week the Nelson News had  a picture of its employees on the  front page, and they might easily  be taken for a bunch of parsons  after a picnic. Not one of them  look like a road agent, and the  "public are delighted to know that  such a pleasant-faced crowd produce Nelson's leading excitement.  Tho editor of this excellent paper  might further Foster and develop  the kindly feeling, towards bis j  journal if he would print a picture  of all his readers. That would be  something new in the newspaper  world.  The Mighty Columbia  The Revelstoke Mail-Herald has  the following to say of the openiug  of the Columbia river from its  mouth to its source to navigation:  In September, 1810, an international deputation waited upon  Premier Laurier���������the subject, the  improvement of the Columbia  river; the idea, its navigability  from Portland, on the Pacific, to  the head of navigation in British  Columbia. "United States Senators,  and others of that country, told of  what had been and was yet to be  done, on their side of the line; and  the British Columbia delegation  asked what could be done on this  side. Sir Wilfrid Laurier was not  in a position to say then, but, to  show his sympathy with the project, he promised an appropriation  the trapper, cruiser, miner, logger,  road builder and railroader have  found these oniraal paths the ones  of natural use and scientific gradient. What the fur traders of d>*-vs  of yore and the pioneer miners of  'G6 founded as a route for strategic  communication between the prairie  and the Pacific is still a route, and  will, by and bye, be a busy artery  of commerce, carrying barges on  its bosom���������past Revelstoke door���������  of golden, yellow wheat.  Ono has only to study and read  the development of the canal and  river system of carriage as develop,  ed in Germany and Austria, to see  its advisability, its future, in such  a case as Canada's, in such a case  as the Columbia's. Were this  river in the East, and all its  tributary richness there, they would  be making Wellands and Wellands  of it. But it would only develop  American port and vessel traffic, it  is argued. Doubtful but suppose  so. We use and profit by, their  canal, and, if they toll not their  own keels passing through it, is  there not some advantage to our  cargoes if carried by them? With  all'the cities of the coast straining  after the trade advantages of the  Panama canal, is it not possible  too, for Revelstoke, Nelson Rossland and Trail, and all the ports  and places on this great water  system of the Interior to press its  claims   before    our  governments  livelihood; (6) right effort; ,(7)  right thoughts; and (8) the right  state of a peaceful mind*"  This is the dharma. This is the  truth. , This is religion. And the  Enlightened One uttered this  stanza:  Long havo I.wandered; Long  Bound by the chains of desire  Through many births,  Seeking thus long in vain.  Whence comes this restlessness  in man?    '  "Whence his egotism, his anguish?  And hard to bear is samsara  When pain and death encompass  us.  Found! it is found.  Tho cause of self hood.  No longer shalt thou build a  house for me.  Broken aro tho beams of sin;  The ridge-pole of care is shattered;  Into Nirvana my mind has passed;  The end of cravings has been  reached at last.  There is self and thero is truth.  Where self is, truth is not. Where  truth is, self is not. Self is the  fleeting error of samsara; it is individual separateness, and that  egotism that begets envy and hatred. Self is the yearning for pleasure and the lust after vanity.

Though Sir  "Wilfrid was defeated at the polls,  the idea has had the endorsement  of his-successor, Rt, Hon. R. L.  Borden, and the estimates again  carry the vote for this work. The  start is small, but sensible, and  from smaller starts than this even  bigger things have grown. ���������  All the world is talking of that  big ditch���������the Panama Canal���������and  of it all, the West sees in it the  greatest blessing.

There is only ono body  in this country, this interior, that  can successfully take such a matter up���������The Associated Boards of  Trade of Eastern British Columbia.  Under their aegis the matter would  be shorn of all political purpose,  and be regarded as the approved  project of keen bueinesa men of  long vision.

All railroad expansion  Old Senators  Take Sir Richard Cartright, for  example,  seventy-seven years old  and gouty, but there's fight in the  old hero yet.    Prop him up against a wall, put a red sash round his  middle,  stick a couple   of   silver  mounted,    muzzle-loading   horse-  pistols in his belt, and a pirate of  the Spanish Main would have nothing on him for ferociousness.    Or  take Colonel   the   Honorable  Sir  Mackenzie Bowell.   He  has had  rebellions of his own to ,handle���������if  yon don't believe it, ask Foster.  At the prospect of a real  fight, Sir  MacKenzie's     eighty-nine    years  would roll  off him as lightly'as a  fur-lined  overcoat,  and he would  be the young captain again  who  served in the Fenian troubles in  18G6. Then there's Charles Eugene  Boucher de Boucherville, sole survivor of thc old noblesse in Quebec,  ninety years old,  with a strain of  fighting blood that goes back   to  1653,     and     Lientenant-General  Pierre Boucher, Sieur de Grosbois  and   Governor   of   Three Rivers.  Tho Hon. Charles Eugene has had  a stormy time of his own.   More  than once he haa- been   at close  grips.    His breath  with Letellier  is a page of history. ��������� This old war-  horse,    handsome,    distinguished,  very patrician, is still much alive  and might be depended on to do  something   more   than   sniff   the  battle.  Sir Richard Scott* must not be  overlooked.   His   father   was  an  officer    under    Wellington.   The  Scott family has   served   Canada  ever since in one well-paid berth or  another.   Sir    Richard's   eighty-  seven years could still be valorous  on stewed chicken, fish and a generous   diet  of  vegetables.    And  don't forget Lt-Col.  James Danville,  son of an English general,  and    himself a   dashing  cavalry  officer, a Prince Rupert of debate,  a   very   devil   of  a fellow.   The  Colonel has seen more active service in more parts of the Globe than  any other militia colonel in Canada,  and   his  regiment  has   a  silver  trumpet to say so.���������H. F.

Inasmuch as the judge enjoys a  certain amount of physical exercise  in attending to the outward appearance of his home, he waB out in  the early hours of a summer's  morning raking up his garden,  when a hobo came along the road,  and, steering in toward the tence  whore the judge was working  quietly inhishabilement d'onvrage  asked:  "Hae ye got a fill o' tobacca?"  - The judge dug a hand into one  of his pockets and .handed the  cheerful traveler some, whereupon  the latter put it in his pipe, struck  a match, and after two or three  preliminary puffs in which ho snift-  ed the flavor of his gift, looked  blandly at the judge and by way of  thanks remarked:  '���������Say,   pal,   your   boss  smokes  d d  fine  tobacca,  lot mo  toll  yo."

Greenwood Liquor gotttpany, Importers, Greenwood, B. &  Alfred I Ritchie, a Bible student of  wide reputation iu the United States'and  Canada, declares, that everyone goes to  Hell. - Mr.' Ritchie has some interpretations on'the Bible that appear sensational  and along a new line.* Jn an interview  he gave out some interesting information  regarding various prominent. Bible subjects that require more than ordinary  consideration to obtain theirfull meaning.  "I have a new cure for infidelity," declared Mr. Ritchie. "To prescribe the  remedy we must find the cause, * which I  believe is the inability of the people to  understand how a God of all love and  wisdom aud justice, and having all power,  could permit present conditions and conduct human affairs as proclaimed by the  dominant creeds, of Christendom. Unbelievers choke at the idea of the great  Creator providing an eternity of any kind  of torture for His own ' creatures, especially if he was gifted with theforeknow-  ledge that most of the human family go  there and that He had all wisdom to plan  otherwise and all power to do as He  pleased. , Truly the general religeous  teaching along this line is a foe to reason  and the mother of doubt. "  "The Bible, taken as a whole, presents  no such idea of our blessed Heavenly  Father,  but praises, glorifies and exalts  His holy character.     And so, when understood, it will be as natural for average  human*beings to emulate, love and praise  God as it has been in all human history  for them to worship as leaders and heroes  those who have shown greatness of character, either in power or wisdom or benevolence.     When   rightly   shown the  character of our God will compel the admiration and loyalty of the masses infinitely more than the character of Caesar,  or a Napoleon, or an Edison, or a Bryan  or a Roosevelt.    What is thc reason that  the character of God is so little reverent  ed, that the holy names ol Himself aud  the'Saviour are made the  commonest  "cuss" words? . .We answer that it is because His character is blasphemed by the  erroneous  "Hell" teaching of deceived  Christianity.  * "Well did Pastor Russell, ol the Brooklyn, N.Y., Tabernacle, say, 'If the Bible  does teach that eternal torture is the fate  of all except the saints, it > should be  preached, yes, thundered, weekly, daily  hourly! If It does not so teach, the fac'  should be made known, and the foul  stain dishonoring God's 'holy name removed! " I understand a' free copy of his  pamphlet, "Food lor Thinking Christians," , which examines every mention of  Hell in the Bible, can be hacl by addressing him.  "Everybody goes to Hell. Why? Because Hell is the grave, or death condition to which good and bad alike go to  remain until the blessed time of resurrection, judgment- and restoration to  perfection of 'all "the. obedient. The  Hebrew word "sheol".is positively the  only "hell word" in the<01d Testament.  Its Hebrew definition is, the unseen state  or the place of the dead. It occurs  sixty-five'times, and nowhere is the word  fire associated with it.  "Solomon said, 'There is no work, nor  device, nor knowledge in sheol,' .and he  adds,'whither thou goest' Why? Because all m Hell are dead.. Referring to  the resurrection, the Revelator says  'Death aud Hell (marginal reference  reads 'or the grave') -delivered up the  dead- (not the living)- which were in  them.'  "Sheol is translated twenty-nine times  as 'hell,' three times as 'pit,' and thirty-  three times as 'grave.' In the revised  ..verison, 'sheol' is translated as 'hell'  only about twenty times out of the sixty-  five times, and 'its Greek equivalent  'hades,1' occurring eleven times in the  New-Testament, is not translated as 'hell'  at all,' but is left untranslated because the  Bible revisers knew it 'did not mean  eternal torment. -  "Only sixteen out of the sixty-six Bible  books use the word hell iu 'the" English  translation.- St. "Paul wrote fourteen  books of the New Testament, but never  mentioned hell fire. John never mentioned it iu his Gospel nor in his three  Epistles; nor did Peter in his two Epistles, nor Ruth, Ezra, Nehemiah, Esther,  Jeremiah, Daniel, Hosea, Joel, Obadiah.  Micah, Nahuni, Zephaniah, Haggai,  Zachariah or Malachi. Strange that all  these holy apostles and prophets did not  harp upon the danger of falling into that  'lake of fire' which is supposed to be the  doom of billions of humanity!  "No wonder that men turn away iu  disgust, full of fear aud doubt!   No won-  Does he fear'that "upon familiar  ity -will   grow ' more   contempt?'  There are exceptions to this rule,  hut' the average  man  is willing,  yes,   eager8,/ to have  hia   fellows  know him   better.   ,It   has   beeu  said that a "cat can look at a kine"  and as far as is known the kingly  dignity does  not suffer seriously  because of grimalkin's   presumption.    Kings are but human.    A.11  the  world  lias smiled   at   Home  Tooke's satirical answer to George  III.    "Do you play cards?" asked  the monarch. "No,-your majesty,"  replied Tooke,   "I, cannot tell  a  kiug from a knave."   Even a king  when  made the subject  of  such  witticism must have unbent sufficiently to apprcci.ito'its cleverness.  Edward Everett was entertained  at.a public dinner   before leaving  Boston for England to assume the  duties of minister at the court of  8t. James.    The celebrated Judge  Story gave as,a sentiment:    "Ge-  nius is sure to be recognized where  Ever-ett goes."  Everett gracefully  responded with another sentiment  ''.'Law, equity and  jurisprudence;  no efforts can raise them above ono  Story."   History is illumined with  the bright sayings of bright men  who had tlie happy grace of hu-  mor,  and  who ou  occasion have  added to" tense and serious'epochs  in the lives of people the leaven of  a bit of Jevicy.   -Fortunate is that  household that has ��������� in its family  circle a member   whose presence  and whose trend of thought serves  to brighten and to bless every condition that may arise.

The boats  were lowered and room found  for  the women and children, who were  nearly all safely'landed.     The 500  men,  the soldiers and crew, who  had hastily rushed on deck in answer to the drum, calmly awaited  their   fate,   when   they   saw ��������� the  women and children out of danger.

LETTERS TO EDITOR  MRKTS OLD FRIENDS  Some Great i Wrecks  " The nineteenth century opened  with a shipping catastrophe which  of its kind has hardly been equalr  led since. When the.,British-flagship of the Mediterranean squad-  roD, the Queen Charlotte, was,-on<  March 17, 1800, passing Leghorn,  a match which had been lighted  ready to fire a signal gun, fell upon  some hay which had been stored  upon the gun deck. Before an  alarm could be raised the ship was  blazing from stem to stern the  flames bursting through the portholes and hatches and ultimately  firing tho rigging.    It was futile to  der" that church pews are empty and no I think of launching thes boats, and  one seems to care!   No wonder that huu- j  dreds of thousands are infidels, or are  fast becoming such!    The sure cure, the  only cure, is to get a knowledge of God's  true character, for to know Him is to  love Him. With present day bibles,  bible helps, concordances, bible dictionaries and studies in the Scriptures, no  one need be in the dark."  ���������Mmtiiimitmmn'tnmimifflnnmmmmnnntnmmmmK  I Greenwood to Phoenix Stage 1  ������S Leaves Greenwood Daily at 3 p. m. 3  S Arrives Greenwood Daily at 10 a. m. ~s  ST GREENWOOD OFFICE  CLUB CIGAR STORE ^  gH.

Anyone who   feels disposed   to  take a cheerful view of things and  to wear a pleasant .face can find  among the recorded words of the  best men' of all times ample encouragement for so "doing.   Emerson tells us that "A cheerful, intelligent face is the end of culture,  and success enough," while Johnson says:    "A habit'of looking on  the bright side of every event is  better than a thousand pounds a  year."     Somewhere some writer  has set it down that he   would  rather be marooned on some lone  island of the sea with a cheerful  companion   than   make  a   sightseeing tour of the world with the  serious visaged person,   who, for  he might be lacking in dignity, refuses to see and to laugh at the  funny side of thing3.   Shakespeare  asks:   "Why should a man whose  blood is warm within sit like his  grandsire cut in alabaster?"  and  no one has seen fit to try aud find  a reason for such a procedure.  ��������� Frank, free and open   natures  almost come to suspect the real  purposes of tho grave,  dignified,  mysterious man   who   insists  on  keeping every one at some distance  from him.    lie who writes, "Positively no admittance," on his door  makes known his wishes no moro  clearly than does ho who writes  a similar notice acrops hifl features.  the Queen Charlotte bnrned to the  water's edge. The magazines blew  up, sending 700 of her crew of 850  men to their last muster.  Perhaps the year 1811 has never  been equalled for  losses  in   the  British  navy.    In  December*;   a  British cruiser, the Saldanha, was  off the west coast of Ireland, with  a crew of 500. men and officers.  Late one -evening a fearful gale  swept across the Atlantic and in  the pitch darkness some fishermen  declared they saw flashing lights  travelling up Lough Swilly at a  tremendous pace.   These lights, it  is suggested, belonged to' the Saldanha, but what really became of  her, where and how she sank, was  never known for not a man of her  500 odd who composed  her ciew  survived that storm.   A few nights  Inter three more ships of the British navy went to the bottom.   The  St.   George,   74-guu   vessel;   the  Defence,  a G4-gun and the Hero,  were wrecked off the Danish coast,  resulting in the loss of over 2,000  men.   Only 18 managed to reach  tbe shore.  Among the ships that went down  during the nineteenth century,  with many of their crews and  passengers was tho Birkenhead of  England, the loss of which will  never bo forgotten. She was a  transport and omigrant ship, sailing from Queenstown and the Cape,  with detachments of the ]2oh Lancers, Second, Sixth, Twelfth, Forty  third, Forty-fifth and Sixtieth  Rifles, Seventy-third, Seventy-  fonrth.and Ninty-firet Regiments,  and a largo numboi* of women and  Deaj Colonel,���������  Ever since I returned from the Hast,  which was three weeks ago, I have been  telling myself that "when I got time" i  would write you a few notes concerning  the good folk I met during my ratnblings  who at oue time .or another lived in or  about Greenwood. Well, I haven't got  time yet, but I am going to get this business off my hands, time or no time, so  here goes:  The first man I will mention is H.  Mortimer-Lamb, one of the fathers  of the Boundary Creek Times, and  its editor until the advent of Duncan Ross  iu the first half of 1897. Mr. Lamb is  now one'of the pillars of the Canadian  Mining Institute, of which he has been  secretary for seven years. I saw a deal  of him at the annual meeting of the Institute, which I went to Toronto to attend,  and afterward during an excursion to  Porcupine and Cobalt of the small party  (about eighteen in a special car) making  which I was lucky .enough to, be one.  Lamb has done much good work as secretary of the Institute aud has aided considerably in making it the fast growing  and useful institution it has become.  Another of the early residents on Boundary Creek whom I met in Toronto was  George A. Guess, now professor of metallurgy at Toronto University, aftera varied  experience in metallurgy at Trail, in  Tennessee and at Cerro de Peru . (where  A. B. Hodges and P. S. Couldrey are).  Mention of Mr. Guess recalls W.'E. Segs-  worth, who was also assaying in Greenwood, after Mr. Guess departed therefrom,  and who went from thence to Houghton,  Michigan, and there" took the "usual  course in mining engineering, following  which he hung out his shingle in Toronto  as M.E. W. H. Jeffrey, who opened one  or two of Green wood's high-grade properties, and went thence to Cobalt, was also  iu Toronto. Roland Harris was another  old Greenwood man in attendance at the  Institute meeting, having returned from  Soutli Africa some time since. J. W.  Astley, formerly manager of the Snow-  shoe, Phoenix, now a Toronto mining  engineer, I saw much of. I regret that  he did not appear to stand the Toronto  winter as well as could be wished, but  with the spring coming on he was looking for better health.  Of all the mining men I formerly knew  in connection with operations about  Greenwood, W. H. Thomas was the one  who seemed to have been most severely  tried by the Fates, and he has for years  been practically confined to his home,  unable to walk farther than just outside,  and that only with much difficulty.  Those who knew him as a sturdy active  man, closely associated for several years  with the development of the Mother Lode  mine aud the expansion of the smelter  at Greenwood, could not but feel regret  that he has long been unable to continue  doing such useful and effective work in  connection with the development of  mines as was his wont when he was a  frequent visitor to the Boundary district.  I had several hours' talk with him, and  he was greatly interested in the people  and mines he had known and seen when  closely connected with the advancement  of mining and smelting thereabouts. I  was sorry that I could not visit him again  before leaving New York, as he asked  me to, but he lives a few miles out and  my time was fully taken up otherwise.  I cannot recall all those of whom he enquired, but all his old friends in and  about Greenwood may take it for granted  that he remembered them and asked how  they had been getting along. From  either Mr. Thomas or Mr. Eggleston,  secretary of the B. C." Copper company, I  learned that J. E. McAllister had left  New York for England a short time before I reached there.  . Many will remember \V. H. Chesterton  of the Bank of Montreal, whom I found  to be accountant of the bank's Toronto  branch. We dined together at the Kiug  Edward hotel and then went to thc Gay-  ety theatre. No, I am not going to tell  you what we saw there, but, honest, we  didn't have to blush, even though the  audience was composed of men only.  Still, I remember having lead iu the  newspapers of "Toronto the Good," but  then newspapers sometimes have u blind  eye when things are not as bad as they  might easily be.  Now, I don't intend to fill up all your  space, so I must begin to think of "lastly." I must tell you, though, that the  geological survey men, from the director  (Dr. Brock) all through the list of those  I had al one time or another met out  west, did their best to make things pleasant for me at Ottawa, so that I should  much have liked to stay longer, but I  had already been away from my post hix  weeks aud I thought perhaps thc miniug  industry of British Columbia would meet  with dire disaster (?) if I did not soon get  back to help it along, so I tore myself  away and returned west.  Just a line or two about those I saw today  in Victoria. First I hacl the pleasure of a  chat over a cup of afternoon tea at the  Alexandra club with Mrs. Hugh McCut-  chcou. Then, as I passed thence down  the streets, I saw Messrs. Bayly, Caul-  field, Gauncc, Lawder, Randolph Stuart,  and sundry others. Yes, sir, a Greenwood man can't got lost in Victoria, for  he won't get far without running ngainst  some one or more who knew him "away  beyaut" in the Boundary, to my many  friends in which country I send greetings  and hearty good wishes.  ��������� Subscribers are reminded that  The Ledge is S2 a year when  paid,in advance.

On the  property of tlio Boundary Mining  & Exploration Co.,'4,000 feet of  !-liaft and tunnol work has already  been done. Work is to be resumed  at once on tho sinking of one of  the shafts, and it is expected that  at a further depth of 100 feet thc  first of the eleven underlying seams  will bo tapped.

C, MIKING NEWS   !  9 O  oooooooooooc-oooooooooooc-oo  The Rossland Miner says this  about the Trail smelter: -'Tho  load refinery was next visited, and  from J. E. Miller, the affable superintendent, tho following was  gleaned: Tlio plant is now being  enlarged by, the addition of S4  tanks, and along with these sump  tanks and pump tanks for 94 additional tanks are boing mado, so  that at any time 94 tanks can be  added to tho equipment without  much trouble or expense. When  the 84 tanks now being constructed  aro in position, ou a pinch 100  tons of lead por day could bo turned out, which would bean incroasc  of 25 tons a day over tho present  capacity of 75 tons por day. "When  tiie S4 tanks now boing built are  in place, the total number will bo  324.  ,   A number of men with a power  saw, planer aud  boring apparatus  are now being engaged in building  tho tanks, and they  certainly are  making them at a rapid rate.    The  tanks are lined with asphaltum   to  a depth of a quarter of an inch, as  the fluosilsc acid in which the bullion is immersed,   aud  which will  lill the tanks,   will make its way  through  iron,   wood or any other  material except asphaltum or para-  lline.    The asphaltum hardens under pressure of the water and will  hold the acid for years.  Mr. Miller states that the Canadian market has, for tho past two  and a half years,  absorbed all of  the,lead that the refinery produces,  and at present the output is about  00 tons a day. Demand for lead is  increasing. Formerly tho surplus  was shipped to tho Orient, but  none has gone there from Trail for  the past two and a half years.  The larger portion of the lead  goes to Ontario and Montreal. In  tho latter place there are two corroding plants, where tho lead is  turned into white lead, which is so  much used by painters. A great  deal of the lead is consumed in  Winnipeg, Lethbridge, Calgary,  Saskatoon and other places on the  prairies, on public works, such as  the.putting in of water and gas  pipes  and  for soldering  up their  joints.  At tho lead refinery  one   of the  bye-products is sulphate of copper,  and about 200 tons a year is turned  oiit. It is used to a largo extent  in the batteries for telegraph nnd  telephone lines. It is .also consumed by fruit and grain growers  to kill germs and other pests that  arc found on fruit trees tand in  wheat.  Besides this 200,000 ounces of  silver and about $60,000 in gold is  turned out at the refinery per  month.  The lead refinery is one of the  largest buildings in the Kootenays  so far as floor space is concerned.  It is 050 feet in length and has a  width of 50 feet, or a floor space of  32,500 square feet,    <  The refinery is an instance of a  large result from a small beginning.  It started in 1902 with 28 tanks  and a capacity of six tons of lead a  MANUFACTURING JEWELER  The Only Up-to-Date Optical    M^IL^      R    p  Department in the Interior.
