We prove that for any continuous function f on the s-harmonic (1{\infty})$ boundary of a complete Riemannian manifold M, there exists a solution, which is a limit of a sequence of bounded energy finite solutions in the sense of supremum norm, for a certain elliptic operator A on M whose boundary value at each s-harmonic boundary point coincides with that of f. If $E_1,\;E_2,...,E_{\iota}$ are s-nonparabolic ends of M, then we also prove that there is a one to one correspondence between the set of bounded energy finite solutions for A on M and the Cartesian product of the sets of bounded energy finite solutions for A on $E_i$ which vanish at the boundary ${\partial}E_{\iota}\;for\;{\iota}=1,2,...,{\iota}$
