Three shifts are employed at the  Helen, and drifting is going on at the  8o-foot and 200-foot levels.  Granby smelter treatment for the  first full month of 1906 lacked but five  tons of being an even 75,000 tons.  Diamond drilling by the 13. C. Cop  per Co. at the Sun-et mine in the Sim-  ilkameen has been discontinued for the  time being.  A force of twenty men is now employed at the Oro Denoro, and this  week twenty-four cars were shipped to  the smelters.  Development work has been resumed on the Iron Clad claim in Wellington camp, owned by G. W. Rumberger, \V.  |. Portei and Jack Karrell.  Ore from the Napoleon mine, near  Marcus, and from ihe Oro Denoro is  now being received at the Boundary  Falls smelter of the Dominion Copper  Co.  Work on the new four compartment  shaft at the Mother I.ode mine has  reached a point 60 feet below the ;oo-  foot level, and Umbering has been  completed that far.  Knight & Stone, of the Spokane  >iamond Drill Contracting Co., have  started work on their contract for boring a thousand feet of holes in the  Betts and Hesperus. Work is first  being clone in the face of the 700-foot  tunnel.  No time is being lost in preparing  the foundations for the new ore crusher  for the Gjanby mines, a large force of  men being employed by the carpenter  foreman, Harry Pleasance. The  freight on one of the cars of crushei  machinery, two of which arrived this  week, was an item' of about $2,000  alone.  Fifteen Patients In Hospital.  This week the auxiliary hospital  over the city hall was consolidated  with the main hospital, and there are  now but filteen   patients being treated.  The extra nurses which had been employed    have   nearly   all   gone,   there  >eing but lour now all told in the institution. At one time the hospital  had 1 7 employees. The typhoid fever  outbreak has been piactically stamped  out, nearly all the patients being convalescent and well along towards recovery.  The prospects for mining and smelt-  in the Boundary for the year now well  started, show that much new work will  be undertaken in, both low a 11J high  grade properties under operation, with  others expected to resume, and that  the smelting capacity of the three  Boundary reduction works will probably be increased from 25 to 40 per  cent before the year is closed. At  present the daily output of ore runs  pretty close to 4,000 tons, and from  contracts already awarded for smelters'  enlargement, it will be between 4,500  and 5,500 tons daily by the end ofthe  year.  Referring specifically to concerns  that will enlarge, the British Columbia  Copper Co., operating its two furnace  smelter atGieenwood and the Mother  Lode group of mines, Deadwood camp,  has already awarded contracts for the  installation of three blast furnaces of a  larger type than any now in commission in Canada, as noted heretofore.  Work on remodelling the present plant  is to start in the early spring, and  when completed the company's copper  output will be more than doubled. At  the same time the company will discard steam for motive power a! its  mines and install an electric equipment,  as is now the case at the reduction  works, all of which tends to greater  economy in working. The company  will also operate its Emma mine, in  Summit camp, on a larger scale, improvements having recently been made  there, with a view to installing elec  trical equipment later.  The Granby Consolidated, which  paid a dividend of - $405,000 two  weeks ago, said to be the first of regular  distributions of this nature, is operating eight furnaces at its Grand Forks  smelter. Two of these axe larger than  the others, but it is the intention to  enlarge the other six as soon as practicable. The output is now from  2,500 to 2,700 tons of ore from the  company's mines daily, which will  naturally be increased to some extent.  The maximum smelting capacity is  now 2,700 tons daily, but with e:ght  furnaces in commission, some one of  them are naturally under repair part ol  the time. It is Supt. Hodges' intention to enlarge the smaller furnaces so  that he can regularly smelt 2,700 tons  or more daily and yet allow for needed  repairs occasionally���without increasing the number of furnaces.  At the Granby mines in Phoenix  camp, expansion is steadily going on  while the regular quota of ore is being  shipped. In the spring the new main  three-compartment incline shaft will  break through to the surface, and the  250-h. p. electric hoist, capable of lifting five ton loads from a depth ol  1,000 feet or more, will be installed.  This is now being manufactured in the  east. This week a new huge ore  crusher, with a maximum rated capacity of crushing 3,000 tons ol ore in  24 hours, arrived at the pioperty, the  third to be installed. This will go in  on the C.P R. tracks, and will take  the place of a similar machine destroyed by fire last December. |  At the G.anby's Gold Drop and  Monarch claims, adjoining the main  group, preparations have been under  way for some time for taking out and  shipping a large tonnage ol ore. At  the the former a side track has been  put in by the C.P.R. and ore bins  built by the Granby people, which are  connected with the No. 3 tunnel at the  Gold Drop by a 000 foot tramway. In  another month the Gold  Drop will   be  cieased    shipments    is    the     Denote  Mines, Ltd., opeiating the Oro Denoio  mine in Summit camp. The shipments  are   now   being    increased   to    about  200 tons of ore dailv, th- mine having  sioings on both  the C.l' K. and Gieat  Northern tracks, boili of   which   cross  the  property.     Here   also   the   ore is  cheaply quarried out   ol"  the   hillside.  Other lowgrade piopeittes are also be  ing developed with encouraging results,  but aie not yet iu shipping class.  High Grade Mines Prosperous.  In Boundary's high grade b��lt, as it  is known, are a   number   of  mines   of  no     little    promise.       Around    the  city of Gieenw od  there are probably  a scoie of  such   mines  being worked,  generally    with   good    success.      The  lending mine of   this class is   the Providence,  which   is   developed   to   the  500 foot  level, and   is   shipping   high  grade silver and gold ore   every week.  It is controlled in Chicago, has a compressor and   other   machinery, and  is  sending out ore that   runs  all  the way  from $150 to $200 and more per ton.  Next in importance to   the   Provid  ence in this list is the Skylark, located  in the camp  of  the   same  name, less  than three miles from  Phoenix.    This  is one of the oldest shippers in Boundary, having   sent out ore in 1893, and  then   been   practically abandoned   for  years.      A little   over   a   year  ago   a  Phoenix syndicate secured a   bond on  the claim   from the Butte   owner, and  have been working  it with remarkable  success ever siiice,   meeting  the   payments on the bond from the  net   proceeds of the ore shipments   and   most  of  the expense besides.      It 1 u.is high  in gold and silver and    has   more   ore  blocked  out   today than   ever   before,  though   shipments   are   steadily maintained.  The Elkhorn is another high grade  mine, being steadily operated with  with success and profit. It is located  next to the Providence. Many of the  same people in the Elkhorn are in the  Prince Henry, a new mine, compari-  tively, but which has shipped and is  showing up well. The Crescent mine  is still another high grade silver producer that has ample backing from  Chicago, as well as the Preston adjoining. Other claims being worked of  not little promise are the Helen, Don  Pedro, Last Chance, Jewel, Gold Bug,  Gold Finch, etc. Electric hoists have  been recently installed at the Elkhorn  and Preston and are being, or will be,  put in at the Crescent and Prince  Henry, while the Helen has an air  compiessor.  Up in the West Fork the high grade  Sally and Rambler mines are working  steadily and shipping as best they can,  being some 50 miles from the railway  at Midway. But with the probable  advent of transportation this year these  claims, with the Carmi aud other high  grade properties in that district, will  add considerably to the value of the  output of the Boundary. Franklin  camp, also, this year will be heard  from favorably, and considerable work  will be done there in anticipation of  securing a railway up the North Fork  either this year or next.  Looking over the field of mining  and smelting in the Boundary, the  opening year gives every evidence of  no little expansion in almost every  direction, with the promise that the  1905 output of approximately 933,000  tons ol ore will be exceeded in 1906  in no small degree  HAD UROE  ATTENDANCE  At Annual  General   Hospital  Meeting.  NEW POWER  NOW IN USE  Over $8,000 Received and Paid  Out.  Granby Smelter   Received   it  This Week  in shape to add its ore to the general  ;ene.  ink!  shipments from the Granby, and  spring a "glory hole" or open quarty  will be opened on the property. At  this property another huge crusher  may be installed this year. On the  Monarch, in addition is the open work  done last year, a shaft has been sunk  100 feet in the tremendous oie body,  and crosscutting is now going on. This  property can also add hugely to the  Gianby output when needed.  The third company operating low  grade mines on an extensive scale is  the Dominion Copper (Jo., Ltd., the  principal mines of which are located in  Phoenix camp, and two-furnace smel  ter at Boundary Falls. This smelter,  after an idleness of several months,  was blown in about December ist last,  and both furnaces are now in operation  to the fullest capacity, together with  the several mines of the company.  Recently the company decided on an  issue of additional ticastiiy stock and  bonds, for the put pose ot erecting a  new smelting works with greater capacity than at present. This will doubtless be taken up and acted on this  year, as the company is now in good  hands aud has the backing of a strong  New York and   Salt  Lake   syndicate,  New I. 0. 0. T. Officials.

Thursday evening the annual general meeting of the Phoenix General  Hospital was held at the office of the  secretary, J. L. Martin, Bank Block,  according to official notice. President  Charles D. Hunter occupied the chair  and Mr. Martin was secretary of the  meeting. There was the best attendance ever held in the history of the institution, showing the increasing interest being taken in the hospital by  the citizens generally. About thirty  were present, including a number of  ladies, business men and members of  the Miners' Union.  Following the reading of the minutes of the last annual meeting, the report of the auditing committee, Geo.  E. Dey and C. H. Reeves, was read  by Mr. Dey, and was accepted and  filed. It snowed that every dollar had  beeen accounted for, and that up tu  December 31st $8,943.37 had been  received and paid out during the year  1905, wich the exception of $513 on  hand, which would be used up in securing a car of coal and in paying interest on mortgage.  Secretary Martin then read his report of the hospital for the year, which  proved to be a more than usually interesting document in many ways He  told how the hospital had started out  about four years ago with a building  that had a $2,000 mortgage thereon,  but without furniture or fittings of any  kind; and how it had, through the generosity of the people of this and other  places, been able tb do so much good  work for the suffering. He paid a high  compliment to the nursing staff and to  the Hospital Ladies' Aid.  Mr. Martin was thanked by the  meeting, as were'also the Ladies' Aid  and staff of the hospital, and there was  a general discussion of the report and  work of the institution. Drs. Gordon  and Boucher also referred to the good  work of the nurses, and the nursing  staff, through W. S. Macy, presented  Mr. Martin with a fine silk umbrella  as a token of their appreciation of his  efforts on behalf of the institution during the last twelve months. F. Knott  and A. S. Thurber spoke on behalf of  the Miners' Union.  The election ot directors resulted as  follows: R. Horrell. J. L. Martin, J. A.  Morrin, W. S. Macy, O. B. Smith, Jr.,  L. Y. Birnie, J. A." Crawford and W.  A. Pickard, eight in all, the ninth to  be appointed by the government.  O. B. Smith was appointed secretary  pro tern of the board, and a meeting  of the directors called for next Wednesday evening for the election of officers.  It was decided to have the secretary's and auditors' reports printed in  full in the Pioneer, but owing to lack  of space they will not appear until next  week.  Throughout the meeting was marked  by good will and a desire for information, which was freely furnished,  and which seemed to meet with the  approval of those present.  Bonnington   " Juice "    Begins  Boundary Service.  This week the first power to be furnished in the Boundary by the West  Kootenay Power & Light Co., which  has recently built high tension double  electric lines from Bonnington Falls,  on Kootenay river, near Nelson, to  this section, was turned on at the  Granby smelter at Grand Forks, and  was at once utilized at those reduction  works, where electric power has been  none too plenty since eight furnaces  were placed in commission a short  time ago. At first but a few huudred  horse power will be used, the Granby  Consolidated also having some water  power of its own, as well "as"the power  from the works of the Cascade Water,  Power & Light Co. at Cascade, which  has so far furnished all the long distance power used by the mines, smelters and cities of the Boundary.  The coming of the Bonnington  power gives assurance that there will  be no lack of power this winter, as  there was last winter when the Kettle  river reached its lowest stage in years,  but which shortage cost Boundary  smelter owners several thousands of  dollars.  This week a petition has been circulated throughout the towns and  cities of the Boundary, and almost  universally signed, asking the legislative assembly to grant an extension of  charter to the West Kootenay Power &  Lieht Co., so that the company can  operate in the county of Yale.  A day or two since electric power  was turned on to the motor for the  new air compressor of the Dominion  Copper Co.,, Ltd., which is ..being installed at the company's Rawhide mine  in this camp. This power is furnished  by the Cascade Water, Power & Light  Co.  :  HEARD IN PASSING.  Julius Levy, Rossland ��� Phoenix  looks better today than I ever saw it  before.

About a year ago the people of  Phoenix unanimously petitioned the  postoffice department at Ottawa for a  mail service over the V., V. & E. from  Grand Forks to Phoenix, and the  promise was given to look into the  matter. At various times since then  the department's attention has been  called to the subject, but thus far  without effect. The mail from the  United States is st ill brought up as far  as Grand Forks, the sacks for Phoenix  being completely made up on the  Great Northern train on the other side  of the line, and dumped off at Grand  Forks, held there a day and brought  up on the C.P.R.���when it might just  as well be brought up direct to Phoenix.  In November last an indignation  meeting of business men was held and  the postmaster-general telegraphed to  in the matter. The immediate response was that the service would be  put into effect as soon as possible.  Tenders for carrying the mails to and  from the station were called for, lo be  in by December 2 2d, but as far as the  public is aware, that was the end of it,  although five weeks have elapsed since  that date. Our member, Duncan Ross,  also took the matter up, but seemingly  they did not listen to him to rfny extent, either.  For pure, double-distilled, concentrated essence of mossbackism, commend us to Ottawa and the postoffice  department and the. manner in which  it is conducted at that point. There  is no earthly reason why this matter  could not have been attended to  months ago, and it should have been.  In the meantime the most important  mining town in British Columbia has  its American mail delayed 24 hours,  because the postmaster-general, Hon.  A. B. Aylesworth, or Dr. R. M. Coulter, the deputy, or some lessei official  in the Dominion, capital, does not  attend to his business as it should be  done. How long is til is state of affairs  to last?  Perils of the  Deep.    *  As one horror after another is reported of shipwrecks where many lives  are lost, the average individual begins  to speculate as to whether it is relatively  at all safe  to  trust oneself away any  distance from dry land. The latest of  these was the wrecking cf the steamer  Valencia last week on the rocky Pacific coast not far from the city of Victoria, at Cape Beale, by which more  than one hundred lives were lost. As  the details of the awful catastrophe  came to hand in the press, written in  such graphic style, a full realization of  the terrible event could be had.  It does not seem so long ago that  the wreck of the steamer Clallam, not  far from the location of the Valencia  wreck, with its loss of many lives,  startled the people of the west, while  before that the burning of the steamer  Slocum in New York harbor, by  which 1,000 lives were lost, was another. Seemingly, these dreadful  occurrences come thick and fast, and  many travellers lose faith in the ability  of latter day navigators to safely care  for their passengers.  One thing seems certain regarding  these fearful calamities, and that is,  some of them could have been avoided. Our American cousins seem  disposed to take many more chances  wilh their craft than others, and that  fact will not tend to lend confidence  in their judgment. From the records  it does not appear that British bottoms, at least of late years, have had  the same misfortunes with consequent  loss of life. This is doubtless due to  the greater strictness of the navigation  laws, or their enforcement, on those  who sail under the Union Jack. Tne  American steamship companies, at  least in this regard, appear to be too  willing to take risks for the almighty-  dollar when valuable lives of men,  women and children are at stake.  They could pattern after the British  owners to good advantage, it would  seem, and reduce to the minimum such  death dealing calamities as those of  the steamers Clallam and Valencia.  If they do not, they should not and  will not receive the business that they  mig;ht otherwise enjoy, as the public  will be disposed to give them a wide  berth.  Fighting to Furnish  Power.  The Cascade Water, Power & Light  Co. is appealing before the members  of the legislative assembly with a petition, asking that body not to grant an  extension to the charier of the West  Kootenay Power & Light Co., so that  the latter may furnish power all over  the county of Yale, the present limitation being within 50 miles of Rossland. The assertion is made that if  the charter is amended it will greatly  curtail the business ofthe Cascade concern, and therefore it should not be  granted. It bids fair to be a pretty  fight at Victoria before it is decided,  and the outcome can be predicted.  The Cascade concern has invested  about half a million dollars in its attempt to give the Boundary adequate  electrical power, and the West Kootenay Co. is investing a million for the  same purpose. Up to last winter the  service from Cascade was plentiful and  efficient on account of the small  amount of power needed, but when  the water in Kettle river went down a  year ago, the power went down also,  and the company was not able to supply all the demands made upon it, let  alone takecare of an increase in demand  which was to be used in a few months,  and which has now already arrived in  this section. These are facts beyond  contradiction, and every resident ofthe  Boundary is aware of them. The output of the Boundary a year ago was  curtailed to the extent of thousands of  dollars because the Cascade concern  could not supply the power, due to  extreme low water���and that extreme  might come again any season. As it  stands today the amount ot power will  be so greatly increased, due to the improvements being made at ihe several  Boundary smelters and mines, that  thtre is not enough power to supply  this demand with the present Cascade  plant running at its maximum.  It was hardly to  be  expected that  the large mining and smelting concerns in the Boundary would stand  this state of affairs if it could be avoided. Expansion was and still is the  order of the day, but power was short  from the then existing sources. What  was to be done? The Cascade people  could not and did not give any assurance whatever of an attempt to increase their capacity to supply power,  even after being asked to do so by one  of the large consumers, and the Boundary mining companies did the next  best thing When the West Kootenay  Power & Light Co. agreed to furnish  the needed power, it was given contracts, and has constructed its long  distance high tension lines into the  Boundary for this purpose.  If the Cascade concern is or was  willing to make an effoit to supply the  the demand, why was it not done  when an application to it was made?  In its petition, nothing is said about  this phase of the matter, hut after the  other power company had made its  r.onuaets for power with liniiudaiy  mine owners, the backers of the Cascade concern announced in the London press that they would increase  their capacity if necessary, and visited  the Boundary, when loo late, to see  about it. In short, they were too slow  about giving any satisfaction whatever  in the matter of increase.  What is wanted here is cheap electrical power and plenty of it. It could  not be had from existing sources u!  supply, and it was secured elsewheie.  That is all there is to it. The Cascade concern should not be put out ol  business, but the extension of franchise  should be granted to the West Kootenay concern, with such limitations  and safeguards as may be deemed  wise. And this is probably the view  that will be taken of the mattei by the  legislative assembly.  Greater Praiperity Id B. C.  The Monetary Times, the most influential trade journal., published in  Canada, has the following about British Columbia:  While the northwestern provinces  have had more attention from eastern  Canada and from the outside world  during the past year, no province in  Canada has had gi eater prosperity  relatively to its immediate possibilities  than British Columbia. 'I'his huge  province, destined probably some day  to outstrip all others in wealth, with  resources which require literally millions of people for thrir development,  lias at present but a handful, as it  were, of people. It is so rich in products of both sea and river, valley and  mountain���fish, fruit, grain, catile,  timber, coal, and almost all minerals,  it is so lovely a climate for man to live  in; and it can eventually be so largely  self-supporting because of its possibilities in producing varieties ot food and  varieties of manufactures, that no one  can doubt as to the character of its industrial future.

ALLES, Agent  A Good Suggestion.  That Smith Curtis intends to re  enter politics at an early date is evident from the tact that he has addressed a meeting of miners at Ymir  and is sending out a verbatim report  of the same in poster form, sa>s the  Victoria Colonist. In his address Mr.  Curtis attacks the government in the  strongest possible language. "Graft,"  "corporate influence," and domination  by the C.P.R. are the crimes which  are laid at its door. The.document  in question is much too long to examine in detail. As a specimen state  ment by which to judge of the value of  the whole, it is alleged that "already  the C.P.R. has taken nearly 20,000,000  acres of British Columbia lands." The  land grants given to the Columbia &  Kootenay, the Columbia & Western,  and the British Columbia Southern  amount in all to about (, 8,000,000  acres. Only 200,000 acres was given  to the C.P.R. The rest of it was acquired by the company after it had  been granted to other companies. We  would suggest that if Mr. Curtis wants  a suitable text for a sermon on graft  he would turn his attention to Ottawa.  PROVINCIAL.  1  A. J.

The editor of the Seattle Post-Intelligencer refers to his esteemed contemporary the editor of the Times as "an  Aristophanian sphragidonychargoco-  meta who is suffering from intellectual  hysterocystocele." At last accounts  the Times man was still out. It is  said that Daniel O'Connell once made  a bet that he could close up a voluble  Irish apple woman by flinging at her  head one single word. Daniel won.  When the lady had been provoked to  the necessary extent and her eloquence  was at full flood, O'Connell transfixed  her by calling her a parallelogram.  Evidently heavier verbal artillery than  O'Connell's had to be brought into action to subdue the editor ofthe Times.  ���Victoria Times.

The  Cranbrook Herald, Phoenix Pioneer,  Fernie Free Press, and Nelson News  all issued holiday numbers that outshine anything of the sort we have  seen from Eastern Canada. We paid  our tribute to the Cranbrook Herald  last week, and since, we have been  favored with copies of the other papers  and, like the Herald annual, they make  us admire the enterprise of the fellows  in the mountains. All the pages of  these editions are original; no importations from jobbing houses, but reading matter and advertising, put together in the respective towns. Western papers are up-to-date.���Lethbridge  (Alta.) Herald.  Covered Whole Field.  One of the most attractive and interesting annual publications that has  reached this office is that of the Phoenix  (B. C.) Pioneer. It is in magazine  form, has 72 pages, is profusely illustrated and neatly printed. A tremendous amount of work was required to  produce such a publication, and it is  a great credit to the office from which  it was issued. There is much of  great interest in the mining way in  and about Phoenix, from which material can be collected, and that duty  was certainly in good hands. But the  publishers did not confine the contents  to the narrow limits of a single place,  the whole Boundary field was covered,  and prominence is generously given to  Grand Forks, Eholt, Midway, Greenwood, and other camps in that very  rich and important mining district.  This annual will prove of great value  to the mining interests of that part of  British Columbia, and the publishers  richly deserve a handsome reward for  their enterprise. ��� Loomis (Wash.)

A good  many people do it because the income  is so big; that they can't conveniently  spend it all; and a whole lot more people do it because they can't get credit  beyond the contents of the Saturday  night envelope, says an exchange. The  only people who cannot follow Mr.  Rockefeller's advice are country editors���they have to live outside their income or not live at all.  tit  A rural preacher, says an exchange,  at the conclusion of a sermon, said :  "Let all in the house who are paying their debts stand."  Instantly every man, woman and  child, with one exception, arose. The  preacher seated them and said :  "Now, every man not paying his  debts stand."  The exception noted, a care worn,  hungry-looking individual, clothed in  his last summer's suit, slowly assumed  a perpendicular position.  "How is it, my fritnd," asked the  minister, "that you are the only man  not able to meet his obligations?"'  "I run a newspaper," he meekly answered,   "and   the   brethren  who just  stood are my subscribers, and "  ���!���  The Pioneer is in receipt of the  second or third long winded communication from the Lord's Day Aili;inceof  Canada, Toronto, of which Rev. J.  G. Shearer is secretary and Rev. T.  Albert Moore, assistant secretary, bearing on the controversy which the Nelson Daily News has had with the  alliance. We are asked to publish the  same, and if the reverend gentleman  would study and practice brevity, 100m  might be found for his views, although  the News is well able to take care of  itself. Mr. Moore made some statements about the News and about  miners in the Kootenays which are, to  say the least, open to criticism, and not  statements of fact. If he would stick  more to bare fact, he would find more  people in the west in sympathy with  his work, and would also br able to  enlist to a greater extent the assistance  of the press.  ���������  The war between the two power  companies operating in the Boundaiy  may be interesting, and theie is  usually sympathy for the under dog in  the fight. But, after all, ���.������hat the  residents ofthe Boundary wish is to  sec the mines and smelters in full operation all of the time. In that way  we will enjoy continued piospeiity.  We know that the Cascade concern is  today unable to furnish electrical  power and in a few months will be far  behind the procession, owing to increases. The West Kootenay company, we know also, has the available-  power and necessary capital���two  things the Cascade company lack.  While no one is desirous of seeing  trouble come to any one or any company, the prosperity of the Boundary  is paramount to any one p-.rson or  concern, and if they attempt to stand  in the way of progress���well, it is unfortunate for them, that's all.  ������a  George C. Hodge, of Nelson, district superintendent ot the li. C. Telephone Co., Ltd., was in the city last  Saturday, straightening out some kinks  in the local switchboard���in which he  was successful. Mr. Hodge started  this week on a six weeks vacation,  during which he will visit the large  cities on the Pacific coast, and pick  up, if possible, some new ideas in the  telephonic world. This year it is the  intention of the company to put in a  metallic system in Greenwood���all the  same l'hoenix���and it may be necessary to rebuild the system entirely,  owing to the corrosion of ihe wiies in  that town Irom smelter smoke. Alter  that Grand Forks will be tieated the  same way, when the Boundaiy system  will be in the most complete woiking  order.  BOUNDARY WILL FURNISH MUSIC.  Greenwood   Brass   Band  Has   been   Enjiged  for Rossland Carnival.  The band committee of the Rnssiand  carnival has at length finished its  labors and filed a repoit. Its chief  duty was to secure a proper brass band  to play during each night and day <<l  the carnival, commencing on Wednesday, February 7th. It was found to  be impossible to organize a band loi  carnival purposes in the city, ovrn by  drawing from Trail. Applications  were received from tlie Nelson, Greenwood and Colville bands to furnish the  music needed, and the committee decided to engage the Greenwood band,  a musical organization of more than  local reputation, of which A.D. Hallett,  a very capable musician, is the leader.  The Greenwood band will anive there  on Wednesday, February 7th, in the  afternoon, so as to be ready to play at  the masquerade carnival to be held on  that evening.
