WE HAVE PURCHASED the busi.  ncss of the Phoenix Tiading Company and have moved our groceiics into the  store occupied by them, which will now be  theGioceiy Department of our business.  Our stock has been greatly enlarged, so  lhat with the exlia store room we now have  ivc can promise BETTER TREATMENT  and CLOSER PRICES.  Our other departments are being remodeled, and in a short tims we hope to be  able to show as complete a stock in these as  in our grocery department, which means, of  course, the most complete in the city.  If we have overlooked or neglected any  duty towards our customers during the last  two weeks, we hope they will pardon us, as  everything has been "topsy-turv)" since the  fire. But from now on we will be moic  careful, as we aie gradually getting things  straightened out.  THOMPSON,  POST OFFICE STORE.:  Last week's meeting of the Associatt  ed Hoaids of Tiade at Greenwood  closed with the session of Saturday  night. In many icspccts the gathering  was a notable one. The only subject  on which there was much discussion  was in regard to the coal-smeltcr-iail  way policy, and it was soon evident  that, as a whole,, the convention was  opposed to allowing the C. P. U. to  have a monopoly oi' the railway business in the province.  'i'he first session was held Friday  morning and the last Satuiday evening,  the C. I*. R. having generously pio-  vided a special train, to leave" Greenwood Sunday noon, to take the delegates home.' Fiiday night the banquet  by the citizens of Greenwood was enjoyed at the Windsor hotel and Satuiday the Boundary Falls andGrcenwoud  smelters weie visited by the 35 or 40  delegates it*��� attendance. Sunday  morning a number visited Phoenix and  went through some of the mines.  Kaslo was unanimously chosen as  the place for the next, meeting next  year. C. Scott Calloway, of Greenwood, is now president of the - As  sociated Hoaids, and II. W. C. Jackson, of Rossland, the painstaking sec-  ictary for the last two years, was ic-  electcd.  Several amendments and additions  to the constitution and by-laws w ere  made. Among them was the laising  of the amount of the annual contribution payable by each board belonging to the Association fiom $15 to $25.  The following wcrc^appointed a committee to proceed lo Victoria to present  to the piovincial government the various lesolutions ofthe Association, le-  quiring its attention: Messrs.

Whereas this association has been  informed that an advance in local  Height lates to the extent of neaily 50  per cent, has lecentiy been made between ceitain sections on the Crow's  Nest Pass railway, and whereas, the  government lias the powei to regulate  said ft eight lates on this line; theiefoie,  be it  Resohed, that this association respectfully lecuicsls the lion, the minister of lailwajs to give this matter his  serious consideration, with a view to  relieving this. sections thus affected  from the present excessive freight  rate, ;:��� .J7'"  J Supreme Court Sitting (or Boundary.  Whereas, no sitting of the supreme  court has ever been held in the Boundary district, which has two supreme  court registries, four incorporated  cities, and a very large and growing  population, and whereas the present  arrangements for the administration of  justice throughout the whole inetrior  of the province are exceedingly defective and inadequate* and   ���  Whereas, all the five supreme court  judges reside at the coast, tin's association requests the Domh.ion and provincial governments to remedy these  grievances by requiring one of the  /supreme'court judges to reside iii the  interior; and J - ��� J..._, 7 , .  ; Whereas, great expense is inflicted  on the province as well as.' the people  by the fact that there are no sittings  of the supreme court in the Boundary  district,  This Association; requests-the provincial government to have such sittings  held without delay both for criminal  and civil cases.

Visits Ph?enix  Once More.  IS LOOKING FOR MORE INFORMATION  Sa>s There Is no Truth In Rumor that he Is  About to Become Alforncyflineril ol the  Province.  Smith Cuifis, who represents this  tiding in the provincial legislative assembly, was a \isitor in Phoenix last  Saturday���for the first time since he  was elected, last July.  Mr. Curlis had jusl attended the  gatheiingof the Associated Hoaids at  Gieenwood, where he was an enthusiastic worker, as headways has been,  for the open door railway policy.  Since he was last in Phoenix Mr.  Cut lis has-been on a trip to Eastern  Canada, wheie. it will be icnienibercd,  he said many good things about the  Boundary ^ountry and its prospects of  gro*v^>=!'rom a mining standpoint.  '"Mr. Curtis, while in town, was in  consiiitaiion with Secretary Willcox,  ot the Phoenix Board of Trade, in  icgard to the needs of this locality so  far as it cou)d be assisted by the gov  eminent. While he is in the opposition, Mr. 'Curtis is carrying out his  ante-election piomises to do what he  . an for the general benefit of his constituency.  He was informed that three matteis  needed attention at once, viz., to  hasten the letting of tlie contract for  the new $3,000 school house; to see  that the Summit camp wagon road  was built as soon as the snow goes,  and to enlarge the appropriation for  the Phoenix General Hospital, if pos  sible. Provision, in a financial 'way,  has already been made for these matters by the government, anJ it only  remains to cany them out with the  least possible delay.  When asked as lo the current rumor that he was likely to be called  in,to Premier Dunsmuir's cabinet, to  take the portfolio of .attorney-general,  Mr. Cuitis said that there was nothing  in it as far as he was tiwaie.

LThe following recently  Appeared in  fe Nelson Miner: ��� >  ?Ahout May   i   ne.\t,   the   Miner-  fraves syndicate will take the initial  lips in development of the, Rockland  ���oup on Kight-Mile creek, Slocan lake,  outcome of which will be to cstab-  |h what is likely to he the greatest  Ining industry in  the Slocan.'   The  jpciiditurc of $75,000 in development  the construction of a smelter' on  Pgiound to treat Rockland ores arc  I principal features ofthe .syndicate's  bgramnie.     ,      ���'   '        ,'s   .  |j'he Rockland group comprises two  |l claims, and a fraction aggregating  3ut 1 io acres of mineral land.  The  I'opcrty came into the possession of  rank Watson, one of the best known  lining operators in British Columbia,  fth whom was affiliated Judge Spinks  [iVernon. . Thwe gentlemen put con-  Jciable money into development and  pvotcd time and attention to securing  ear titles to iiic ground.- .When, this  ]*.��, in,sha|'C the proposition was prc-  ijucd to Mr. Miner and was taken up  w|'the,syndicate on "the strength of n  Tj>ort from their superintendent, Wm,  slen   William*, " ��vho     is^ said   to  live  described    the   Rockland    as  |hc biggest copper property in  the  Jmntry.','   Air. .Watson  and   Judge  [links retain .r third  interest in  the  pperty.    Thc( agreement governing  J sale provides for the   placing of  rj.ooo in the treasury for develop-  on t and for the commencement   of  eratidns by a  certain   date about  |irce months   hence./;,Work will  be  arried on tinder the direction ot Mr.  ii'illiains.  The Rockland is a gold-copper pro-  asition,'the ..values*being carried in  jlphidcs, which also   run about an  gunce of silver to the' ton.    It   is a  irong feature in   the   enormous ore  Jy the extent of which has not yet  en determined.     ,  When Messrs. Watson and  Spinks  ill-crated the property they drove across  (he deposit'for 95 feel, encountering  Jjre all the distance,,, ���. Drifts were  run  In both directions from the tunnel and  ihe ore continued in place.'   Thorough  iampling indicated the, presence of .1  %2 foot paystreak7 averaging, $i7_ per  ion, and *tha't<-the-6r(��-b6dy,'for. the-en-  lire width averaged  $8.' 'l'he   values  Ire about equally divided between gold  |nd copper.        '" ' -  ' ��� ;  A year liencc the programme of de-  ielopment will be completed and the  Smelter proposition will have advanced  Jhiuine&s in Southeast Kootenay is  said to be picking up.  Slocan   City's incorporation    as a  municipality is almost accomplished.  ' The new   land   icgistry   oftire for  Kootenay oixrncd at Nelson last Saturday.      ,   .  This month' shows a decided improvement in the coal and coke  supply at Fernie.  The Nelson Miner is giving the  post office officials of its town several  warm roasts.  Nearly ona thousand dollars has  been raised in subscriptions in Slocan  City toiyard the new hospital.  - Carrie Nation edited a Peoria, 111.,  newspaper for one day. It is said  that she used a shooting stick.  The Ottawa government has decided to ojien a'n assay office in Vancouver at which gold will be purchased.  , East Kootenay towns have several  cases of smallpox and strenuous efforts to prevent its spread are being  taken.'  ' The/second inauguration of William'rMcK.inIey ^ to be chief magistrate of the United States took place  last Monday, March 4th.  Last' month the Calumet and Hecla  copper mines of Michigan paid $20 per  share in dividends, or $2,009,000 in  the aggregate. >  In the provincial house tlie other  day R.F. Green strongly advocated a  bonus for a smelter and refinery in" the  province for the, treatment of' Slocan  ores.  ,* - A Utah court recently decided that  a mining company in that state , had  the legal right to condemn land for the  passage of a pipe line for conveying  water to its mine, for mining purposes.  The eight-hour mining law has  passed its second reading in the British House of Commons by 212 .to  199. It is similar to the British Columbia law.  For Separation of Ores.  Experiments are now in progress at  McGill  College,  Montu-al,   panada,  with a most ingenious machine for the  separation   cf   ores.     'l'he   Wethcrit  magnetic separator is designed to soi t  one oie fiom another by  means of  magnetic forces and is able to accomplish results lhat can hardly be brought  about in any of-or way.    The oie to  he treated is powdered small 3nd supplied to an ordinary hopjier by a circular feeder.   Fiom this it falls upon  a belt and js carried  along  upder a  strong electromagnetic.   Those substances nInch answer more readily to  magnetic force are drawn from the  first   belt   to a scrond transverse one,  which <arries them beyond the  magnetic field and then drops  them  into J  a second hopper.   By this   method  lubstances are separated according to  their   sensitiveness   to  magnetic influence with a very  small  percentage  of  error,  due  to mechanical causes.  Moreover, by increasing or decreasing  the electric  current  passing through  the magnet, it is possible to divide two  substances, both of which will respond  to the influence, but one more readily  than the other.

Here is a new story of the man who  is too stingy to take his home paper:  A man who is too economical to subscribe for a paper sent his little boy to  borrow the copy taken by his neighbor.  In his haste the boy ran over a four-  dollar stand of bees, and in ten minutes looked like a warty squash. His  cries reached his father, who ran to  his assistance, and failing to notice a  barbed wire fence ran into that, breaking it down, cutting a handful of flesh  from his anatomy and ruining a four  dollar pair of pants. 'The old cow-  took advantage of the hole in the fence  and got into the cornfield and killed  herself eating green corn., Hearing  the racket; the wife ran, upset a five  gallon churn full of rich cream into a  basket of chickens, drowning the  whole flock. In the hurry she dropped a seven-dollar set of false teeth.  The baby, left alone, crawled through  the spilled milk and into the parlor,  ruining a brand new twenty dollar  carpet. During the excitement the  oldest daughter ran away with the  hired man, the dog broke up eleven  setting hens and the calves go(; out  and chewed the tails off four fine  shirts.   Cbrooic Kickers.  Whenever.you find a man finding  fault with the local paper, says a wide-  aw ake exchange, open it up and ten  to one he hasn't an advertisement in  it; five to one he never gave it a job of  work; three to one he docs not take  the paner, two to one that if he is a  subscriber he is delinquent; even up  he never does anything that will assist  the publisher Vi publish a good paper,  and forty to one that if the paper is a  good one and full of life, he is the  most eager to see the paper when it  comes out.    _.'-_,  For good meals, strict attention and  prompt service, the Knob Hill Cafe is  the place to go,- !
