J. D. Graham, of Deadwood,
has made arrangements with James
Skelton, of Spokane, whereby Mr.
Skelton agrees to perform a large
amount of work on Mr. Graham's
claims in Deadwood camp near
Greenwood, in return for an interest therein. The claims consist
of the D. A., Prospector, J. A. C.,
and several ungranted .claims.
A 3-drill compressor and equipment have been ordered from the
Canadian Ingersoll-Rand company
through S. A. Williams, agent, at
Nelsou. For the present a gasoline
engine will drive the compressor.
Mr. Graham is now busy preparing a site for the compressor
and putting up the necessary
building such as a power house,
bank house, etc.
A long tunnel will be driven tb
cross-cut certain leads and surface
pita and cuts will be made to determine the trend of the veins. The
ores in this section are very similar to those found in the Providence mine.
The starting of work in the
above camp was welcome news to
the citizens of Greenwood and
everyone hopes for the success of
this new venture.
^ Mining Notes

A Public Meeting was held in
the Co-Op Hall, Rock Creek, on
Tuesday evening, Sept. 23rd at 8
o'clock, to meet John McKie the
member elect for the. district.
Major F. E. GloSgop was chairman
of the meeting and in opening it he
explained that Mr. McKie was
present to be enlightened on any
local subject any of the electors
might wish to bring forward before
he leaves for the Session at
Victoria.
Reference    was \ made 'to   the
rumors    going   around   that   the -"
bridge at Rock Creek and  also the
one at Kettle Valley were going to
be superseded by one somewhere in
the neighborhood of Mr.   Harker's
house.    James Kerr told the meet-'.
ing, when asked about this rumor, -
that he had certainly heard  it and
concluded   it   was   a   matter   of
economy on the part of the  Bridge
Engineers and it was then  pointed
out to him  that it would be in-f;
flicting a hardship on  those who   -
were already  established adjacent
to the present bridges.
Mr, Hulme brought up the subject of of the appropriation for the
gopher bounty which he considered
inadequate. Mr. Jackson pointed
out that there were .only three.:
gopher infested ridings |n the province and the apathy of the Coast
representatives, to this subject,
made it very hard to get the Government to set aside any money for
this pest. :
-= Mr.  McKie   in a Bhort  speech
emphasized. the fact that he was
there to meet any of the electors
and to know their, wishes respecting "this   part of the riding and
assured, them   that   anything   he
could do at Victoria, to help them   .
he would be most pleased-to do, to
the best,of his ability."'.
7 Tt, was felt by those present that
the action of Mr. McKie in coming
in this'manner to hear .first hand,
an^wishesr the-electors-had-in���-;
view,  might well; be. followed by   '���.

\. Ari American.dry squad officer
was .shot, through-the- flesh in

- It appears; that  at ,12,30.a.m.

squad   officers,'.' Messrs.' .Murray,
and Saddler,- were, .watching the
road near Curlew., f On seeing a:;
car, suspecting it to'- be,a liquorf
runner, coming from the direction '
of Danville,. Saddler., went to the "
side of road .while Murray moved
a few, paces, ahead  and  flagged
the car, whieluslowed dowa-as if
to stop.    Murray  stepped : to-th'e
side of the car  and immediately -
one of the men in the car7 drew a ;
gun. and   fired  two   shots,   one 7
of which went through. ..the flesh
in  front   of   Murray's; stomach.
He fell and the car moved rapidly
ahead swinging  of in ;the direction   of Tbrpda,'-and-in passing,
Saddler opened  fire .but .the car:
kept. on. 7 Saddler then - "conveyed.
his comrade .to Curlew1 where fit
was found:that the bullet had apt
injured the stomach and that he
had a good chance of recovery.
Before.the car was. pursued. Bill.
Gallop, who.owns a ranch near
Toroda,: arrived in  Curlew fwith
Toby Payne,  one. of -the liquor
runners, to receive medical a'tten-.
tion, Payne having been wounded'
when making a get-a-^ay.    He
was shot in the shoulder the .bullet passing through his neck and
lodged ih the jawbone" pa.the;
opposite side.     He also, had , a
wound   in   the back   the   bullet1
striking the spine and. he is not

Fire Prevention
By Royal Proclamation, HiB
Excellency, fehe Governor -General
of Canada has designated October
5feh feo llfeh as Fire Protection
"Week. During that week, lessons
on fire protection will be given in
many schools, public meeting will
be held in cities, towns and villages, and the owners and occupanj^
of property everywhere throughout
Canada will be counselled to give
special attention to the removal of
fire hazards from their premises.
Fire waBte is one of- the most
serious economic . problems con-.
fronting Canada at the present
-time. The public.in general is
vitally affected by ..the tremendous
losses annually .incurred by .fire
and '":the -, enormous expenditure
rendered necessary, to. adequately
/protect.life and  property  froauits
. ravages.. ."Seventy-five per: cent of
all firesare caused ..by -carlessness
���', and   can' therefore be'}prevented.:
; The ffire"-waste in.Canada in 1923
amounted to the. enormous total of
"V?100>794>'354V.;i6 is hopetl thatfal!
���'-..'citizens will co-operate during .Fire
; fPrevention'. Week; and help bring
: before the people the seriousness
of the fire menace.   Let 7everyone
help to;reduce the ..fire, waste from

The church going  habit  ia one
which   most   people   in   W^sjern
Canada seem to have lost.    Had   a
stranger    wandered   into   Greenwood lasfe Sunday eveniug he would
have concluded that our  town was
an exception to the rule.   All roads
led to the Presbyterian Church aud
those who could not join  thb congregation were sorry indeed to miss
such  a privilege.    It   was   Rally
Day   and the young people   had
charge   of   the   evening   hour   of
worship.    Everyone was delighted
with the sweet voices of the members of the Junior  Choir  who led
the Praise.    The new  ushers too
did their work as "to tlie  manner
born."     The great event of   the
evening however, was the addresses
by three of our young ladies.    The
subject   waB   "How    can   Young
People bring about  Racial   Good
Will."      1st.      In   our   country.
2nd.    In  the Nation, and  lastly,
In the World.    The speakers were
Miss    Ruth    Axam,    Miss   "Vera
Kempston,  and Miss Isabel Keir.
Each in turn brought out well the
fact that unless we are willing and
speedily put into practice the Ideal
of    Christian      Fellowship    and
Brotherhood    this   old    world   is
heading   straight  for   ruin.     The
white race and chiefly the Anglo
Saxons, who boast of their superiority and  civilization,   must lead
the way.    Instead of criticism  we
must be ever ready to hold out the
helping hand to those less fortunate than ourselves.     The  young
speakers proved that the policy of
kindliness and good will is ever the
most satisfactory even from a mer-
cinary point of view.    Those who
attended came away, all of them,
with the feeling that they had been
in  touch with   "Divine   Things"
and that all would be better citizens
for the experience.
One lady exclaimed "what a
shame that so few gather for the
regular weekly services and euch a
splendid congregation to night."
it is a shame. Let us get "rid of
the stigma then and .resolve that
henceforth .we shall give one hour
a week to christian, worships and
fellowship, 7 The .Presbyterian
Church is open for Service every
Sunday . evening at..7.30 o'clock.
How many; will be' there next Sunday: evening, f Let's keep, -up.=the
good habit and pur; town may yet
be known as a: Church going Corar
