Reobntly Mr.D.O.Corbln, President
of the Spokane and Nothern railway,
paid n visit to Nelson, and while there
was interviewed by a representative of
the Nelson .Miner.
As a result of the Interview, the Miner makes Mr. Corbin say that although
he intended applying at the coming
session of tin* Dominion parliament
for a charter for the purpose of building a railway into tli Boundary Creek
dlstriot, he did not consider he would
be jusl Hied in giving the district transportation facilities lor at least a time,
hut that  a good business might be
done within tin* next two years.
In referring to the above wc do no
do so with any intention to cull into
question tlie, statement made by the
Jliner, but rather tu shew lhat Mr.
Corbin ditl uut wish tu disclose bis plans
tun freely, nr that since his Interview
with thu Minor, he has suddenly and
very decidedly changed his mind,
That such i.s the case, we refer our
readers to a letter received by Mr. R.
Wood of Greenwood, and published in
another column.
After perusing the letter it is safe to
say nur rentiers will recognize that
the railway question as effecting ihis
district has entered upon a decidedly
interesl ing .stage. So much su is ibis
lbe case, thai the Bpeclacle is presented
uf a reliable railway builder and operator, wishing lo give to lbe district
transportation facilities, and tha; immediately, if unly the Dominion govern
men! will be guud ennugli lu grant him
permission in do so.
And whal does this mean ?
ll means I hat. til lost an opportunity

Dominiongovcriinienls, lo forma correct idea of nol mil) lhe vnsl Importance of this district in a commercial
sense, but as well of the grasping uud
rapacious policy which bus up io ihe

Boundary Creek fl. & fl. Co. Ltd.
The annual generul meeting of shareholders in llu* Boundary Creek Milling
and Milling Company, Ltd., was held
on Thursday lust, 20th inst. There wits
a numerous attendance of shareholders, and many others werojrepresented
by proxy. Tbe directors' repurl and 11-
liancial statement was submitted, and
the secrotnay explained clearly the
nu,re Important items of the accounts,
The monetary position was shewn tn
be that the company owes IjlJOO, in
meet which it has a credit balance iu
thobankof$2I3.aud Hills Rocnlvablo
maturing shortly, $180, sn that its
liquid assets are nearly throe hundred
dollars, more than its cash liabilities,
The mnl.inn of the President to adopt
the repurl of the directors was opposed
by Mr. D. A. II,IIlll'Ook, whn besides j
being it tliieclni- ..ml manage.- of the |

more than three fourths of the coin-
pony's stock, uud who consequently is
iu a position In eilher pass nr defeat,
every motion that may be decided by
ballot, Mr, Holbrook gave ns liis reason for deciiniug to permit the adoption of the report of the directors that
as he will probably contest their right
to sell the McDonell ranch property,
adjoining the company's claims and
bought by them for the company last
sining for townsite ami other purposes,
he wuuld nut endorse their action,
He contended that Iln* property would
shortly be saleable ut a considerable
profit, and sn refused to sanction its re.
sale to Mr. McDonnell. The president
explained fully the reasons for the action taken by ibe directors in fhisi.latter, and maintained that Iheir action
was most necessary, for had lhey not
accepted Mr. McDonnells offer tore-
fund tu the oompany all the money
and shares the land hud enst tlle cnin-
pauy, legal proceedings would have
been instituted against the company
fur the recovery uf d-bts it bud in her-
wise absolutely no prospect uf paying.

legal troubles, saved the credit of the'
company and got rid of a property
which had nut only been a burden to
the company, but the purchase of
which was in liis opinion, responsible
for the entire stoppage of the sale of
the eni.q.iiiiy'.s Treasury stuck, He
hail opposed the purchase very strongly from the first, since he considered it
would hamper the company and pre-
vent the development of its mineral
cliiiins. They now saw that it bail
dune so, and consequently tbe course
taken was he considered the only way
uut nf the difficulty.
A lung discussion followed, and it
seemed that the action of lhe dlreotors
had the approval uf must if not all of
those present excepting Mr. Holbrook.
Eventually tiie meeting adjourned

Holbrook, having lirst accorded the

At the Winnipeg in Wellington
camp, the vertical shaft is nuw down
between 70 am! t>0 feet. It is intended
to crosscut at tbe 1!!,) foot level, which
it is expect t-tl, will be reach-ad about I vim
February ulli. As the lode hud pre-1
viously been proved down to ID feet in -
the old incline shaft every coulideuee!
is felt that ,'jit the 100 font level il will
be found fully equal, both as regards

There is at pre-ent 10 or 20 men employed at the B. C. Suniinit camp, in
connection with tha development of
this very promising milling proporty,
A few others are engaged on survey
work aud in other ways, Tin- dimensions uf the neivly erected building,

ct.i..plaints have appeared in the press,
ind so on, Dn yuu recall any particular complaint. A, I don't remember of any dales. Q. I see. Well,
huve you anything tn suy with respect
to any of these run.plaints ? A. Nu : I
haven't, Q. Ynu make Ihe statement
in this lei ter that "if ever a public
ufflce in Brilisli Columbia lequlred t
lit aired ; if there was evera case which
required a royal commission to issue to
enquire inlo these abuses, which are so
flagrant and so numerous thai it would
be impniisll.li' for me to innuuiei-ate
them in detail," and ihen you stop
there. I presume you mean wilh leaped lo Ihese charges that you have
spoken of that the Commission should
issue? A. What I meant by Ihal was
lhat if these charges could be siil.stuii
tinted, there certainly should be a
commission to enquire whether they
were really a fact or not. If not, and
if the Honorable Judge Spinks was
innocent of these charges, the puhlic
should know of it ; and if he was
guilty lhey sliiiultl also know of it.
That was my object in wrillng that
letter. Q. You didn't write this as
against Judge Spinks? A. Not at all.
Q. But for the purpose of having Ihe
rumors and complaints—? A. Investigated ; llml Wus llu* object in writing
that letter. Q. Have ynu anything
further to state respecting the investigation? A. No; I think not. Q, By
the way did you write this letter yourself? A, I signed my name to it. Before signing it. I gave an explanation
that if the Judge was guilty of these
charges, lhey certainly should be investigated.
Cross-examined by Mr. Wilson i—
Q. You only signed your name to it,
Mr. McCallum, I understand? A.
That, is correct. Q. Who composed
this letter? A.I couldn't tell you. Q,
In whose handwriting was it? A. I
don't know; it was already written
when I seen it lirst, .. Where was it
you signed it? q. In Grand Porks,
q. Whereabouts!your own house? a.
No. sir. (J, Whose house? A. One of
the law offices, q, Whose office? A.
Mr. Sutton's, q. And the letter was
presented to you already written ? A.
It was thoroughly explained i it was
read ovor to ine, q. And it was explained to yon that the purpose of it
was to have an investigation, in order
that the nml ter should be cleared up ;
that wus your idea ? A. That was my
idea, q. In point of fact, ynu wouldn't
have signed it on any other grounds?
A, Idnn't Ihink so. I know personally
if lhe man was guilty I would sign it.
q. You don't know Mr. Spinks was
gtiillyi your only object was to get. the
Investigation? a. Thut wus all. q.
Did vnu rend the letter through yourself?' A. I didn't q, 80 thut you
really did not know, except whut you
were told, what the contents of the
leller were? A. I Ileal ll it read over,
q. Who read it over to you? A. I
don't remember 1 there were two
parlies in the room, q. Who were
the two that were present? A. Mr.
Sutton und a Mr. Falconer. Q. Yes;
Mr. Falconer also wiotea letter to the
Minister of Justice? A. I don't know,
q. Il wns not read lo you ? a. Not
lhat I remember, q. You yourself
have really nn complaint to make
ugiiinsl Judge Spinks? A. No, sir, q.
None nt all? A. Nothing more than
posl polling lliis court, q. And mi how
ninny occasions has that happened ?
A. To my knowledge only once, q,
And theti, I think Ihal was the Queen
against Davis, wasn't il ? A, Thai cuse
came on al that time, Whether it was
that or not, Idnn't reniemhei. q. Aud
yon thought It was not quite right to
keep a man there two or three days?
A. I didn't think so. q, Did you ever
tuke the troube to verify the statements made in your letter, or did you
tuke them for grunted? A. I mnde
enquiries; that's nil, q. But when
lhe letter was written, you took it for
grunted? A. That's a question I don't
know. Q. But when the letter wns
wiil ten, nfler it wits explained to you,
you took it for grunted that the statements made there wei-e right? A, I
took It for grunted there must ha something in it, and that there should bean
investigation. Q. And ynu yourself
took nopaiiiB, no trouble, to investigate
them ut nil t A. 1 |didn't because I
didn't, think they would ever amount
to very much,

Residents of Midway Endorse Mr.
Corbln's Application  for a Railway Charter.   If Secured Building will Commence at once.
On Thursday evening last a number
of the residents uf Midway and a few
visitors from Greenwood assembled in
McNicol's Hall, for the putpose of discussing the railway situation. Very
few hours notice had been given of
the meeting, sn the attendance was
not as large ns It ol herwise would have
been, but what llu* ineeling lacked in
numbers was inure than counter-balanced by tbe enthusiasm of those
present. At about 8.30 order was
culled, and Mr. .lames McNicol was
elected to take tlle ehiiii*. and VV, H.
Nun is was asked to act as secretary.
Theclniifiiiiin after I banking Ihose
presenl. fnt- the honor conferred upon
Iilm, briefly antl pointedly explained
tbe ohjecl of llle ineeling. which be
.•'.id luui lieen called lo allow Ihe
.' te residentsnf Midway an opportunity
I "| giving expression to their wishes,
"•'.Villi regard lo tbe question as lo
wlieiher Ibey would endorse llleappll-
cat loll tot* a charier to be made In the
Dominion Cti.vernu.enl by Mr. D, (I.
C.n-bin of the Spukane Fullsand North-
em Lliiilwuy, whn is desirous of extending bis railway system into ihe Boundary districl, by crossing Uu* Inter-
national boundary line at Cascade
Cily, and following Ilienee up Ibe
Kettle river lo Carsim and Midway,
and thence on up Boundary creek for
a distance of 20 miles, wbich roud
would be kninvii as the Ketlle River
Valley Hallway. '
For his own pact the chairman said
be woe decidedly of the opinion that the
Duininii mllo vern men i should favorably
entertain Mr; Cochin's application, as
iheroad ifhuill would he a great factor
iu lhe development of lbe disirici.
In response to a cull Ml-. Robert,
Wood, of Greenwood, came forward
uud explained thai In* had cm.it io
the ineeling expecliug lo listen rather
than In speak, nt tin* same time he
was glad, he said, lo note the great
interesl lhat was being laken not unly
by the peuple uf Midway but throughout the whole distt let iu lhe mailer
under consideration, He was greatly
in favor uf Mr.Coi-biti gelling a charter
therefore he hoped tlmt their efforts
wuuld beat* gnnd fruil. He believed,l\hc
speaker snid, that as wilh individuals,
so wltb a community, there were]tlnies
when opportunities presented themselves, and when they did, lhey should
be embraced, At present he believed
Boundary Creek's opportunity hnd
come, and such being tlie case, everyone should lend every assistance so
that it may be made possible for Mr,
Ont'bni to build into th\*3 country, for
should he do so, a great Incentive
would be given tu others to follow his
example, and that would mean that
very soon the distriet would enjoy un
efficient railway communication, a
lack of which, was being severely felt,
at the present time. Expressing a
hope that all would work together, he
resumed his seat amid applause, Mr.
W, T. Smith who is a verynctive worker in Mr. Carbin's behalf, wns the next
to address tht* meeting and in doing so
said he was pleased tn endorse (he
forinor speakers remarks, andito add
that he believed if the people would
impress itpon the Dominion Government the necessity of mulling Mr.
Corbin a charter, thai the government
would do so, and t hat would mean the
immediate construction ofa railway.
Everyone knew Mr. Smith said, whal
railways had done for the Kooteoay
and more particularly Mr. Corbln's
road, and as the same gentleman was
willing tu build in here wilhoul receiving any assistance frnni the Government, it was to be hoped his request for a charter would be granted,
Upon a doubt being expressed by someone present that perhaps if Mr. Cut-bio
got a charter he would not immediately commence construction, the
chairman asked If anyone present could
furnish docuineiitery evidence of Mr.
Corbin's intentions. Replying to this
Mr. Wood handed the following letter
tu the secretary, who read it to lhe
Spokane, Jan, 15th, 1898,
Mr. Hubert Wood.
Greenwood City, B.C.
Dear Sir,—As to ibe charter for
ilie Keltle River Valley Railway which
I propose lo ask the Dominion Parliament In grant, nt ils coining session, I
desire to suy that I believe I shall tneel
witli strong opposition, considerable of
which will come from members of ibe
Government and iu such action as your
people may take in presenting the
nialler through yuur representative,
Mr. Bosloek, ynu cannot dwell two
slrungly upon tbe following propositions:
That while the Canadian PaciHc will
probably build into thai counlry within the next year or two, your interests
demand thai, you should have a competing line in order to iissute reasonable rates ; that tbe Ketlle River
Valley Railway company propose to
haul ores front puinls in llie Boundary
Creek country to any smellers that.
may he located on the lines of the
Nelson and Furl,.Sheppnrd and Red
Mountain roads at as reasonable rales
as it will haul ores lo smelters located
tin ihe Coluuiliia River is lbe United
Slates, this practically making it a
Canadian line of transportation in
order to enable you to wt.tk them nl.
nil I and that lbe Ketlle River Valley
Railway with its connections will give
ynu a competing line connecting wilh
the wholesale markets uf Eastern
Cnnitiln, fur the purchase of supplies,
machinery, etc.
Beyond a doubt, if the Canadian
Pacific was the only line penetrating
lbe Kootenay counlry to-day, llu* pro-
ducers of ore would be paying $5 a tun
fur freight and treatment charges,
more than they nre paying, whether
llu* ure wns sent out of the country or
wui-ked in Ibis country. I wiil [be
entirely fair nnd say Ibnl if the Nelson
nnd Fori Sheppard and lied Mountain
roads, were I be only lines penetrating
llml country, the mines would probably he doing the same thing; antl this
will apply to your country its well,
I would like In be ndviseil of what
ncl ion your people lake, and have
copies of the proceedings of any meet-
'ng yuu may buld, ami of such pelilion
as you may send to Mr, Bosloek, and it
is desi.able ilmi. I should have ihem
wit iiiii ibe nexl seven ut1 eight days, as
ihall probably go east in about thai

The reading of this letter wns received wilh marked expression of
Mr. A. K. Slimri", Haing, said thut he
believed tlmt the majority of t-hepPople
of ilie distriet favored Mr. Corbin getting a charter, and it whs well that he
should, for if he built in here, other
roads would also come along, and if
Mr. Corbin was nol given the opportunity to build, then the dbtriet might
he without railway connection for
some time to come.
Mr. Rickards spoke in very much
the same'strain, ami others followed.
The chairman then suggested that a
commit lee be formed to take the mutter up and push it along, working
in unison with olher committees in
different parts of Ihe district. To
ibis committee Messrs.James McNicol,
C.J. Lundy and A. K. Smart* were

I inay stale that 1 have seen Mr.
Falconer and hail a eonvei sal iull wilh
him nn the boat ns we were coming up
to Nelson, and I mentioned the mailer
of this investigation, staling to him
I but as he was one of lhe parlies who
had complained nf the conduct of Mr.
Spinks, and luui put his complaint in
writing, and ihul as perhaps il was
owing as much to bis letter as io any
olher leller lhat this dun mission was
appointed, il would bedesltable in lhe
interests of the administration of jusl-
ice that he Should came down here and
give evidence, He slated to me then
that he had no personal knowledge of
any irregularities which had been committed by -Mr. Spinks, but lhat he
wiole his leller entiieiy owing lo the
representations made lo him by people
w lniin lie had metal (Irand Forks and
lhrough Ibis part of the count ry generally, lie slnlid to me Ihal 'be bad
been engaged in Ibis business of his,
organizing lodges fnr the Foresters,
ami bad met a great, many peuple ami
heard a number '•!' complaints, and
Ihal is why lu* wrote to lhe Minister
ot Justice. I pointed uul l-> him Ihal.
his leller was a very strong one, and.
if possible, he shnulil be here lo gave
evidence. He again staled thai he had
no evidence lo give, and lhat if Ilis
leller was loo strong, anil liis repre-
seiiiations not line, he could nut help
'< ; thnl is, he was nol inn posilion, In*
frankly slated, lo justify bis leller. 1
ilit11k ibal Is niiniii ibe siibsiaiice uf
my conversation wiih him. I would
have subpoenaed him perhaps if hv bad
uul. been so positive lhat he was unable lo give evidence, and. acting upon
my own discieii'in, 1 fell hound lo accept liis slntcincni llllll he bad no evidence lo give.
The Commissioner;— Is Mr. Ken
here? Mr. Henderson:—Nn, my Lurd,
1 was informed Ibal a day or two age
be bad left here. I think lo go In
Greenwood, and would be absent some
four or five days, I made purticidai
enquiries wiih respeel lo him.
Mr. McMynn:—I have made sunn*
enquiries, and I understand thai he
has gone lo Vernnn, and that he is not
expi cted buck fur a few days.
The Coininissiiiner— Is there uny
gentleman present befure .Mr, Spinks
is heard, who di .-ires lo suy anything
with reference lo lbe mailers now
under hives'.Igst Inn ? [f so, now is his
ilpnurlunity in come forward, and he
will be heard, either under oath or
olberwise as lie- circumstances may
admit,   No one answered.
Mr. Henderson:— I supposed, my
l.nril, if Mr. Sidley later ou wishes In
make a furllier statement he might be
llelird? The Commissioner:- Musl. cer-

that the llowds were, I am nol sure

almost, certain lhat the courts were
adjourned—I could um get iu und out

lhat in lbe spring nf 1894 lliere were
adjournments. In the spring of 1808 I
came from Vermin, and iny horse
caught cold and got tlle sl tangles ; lu*
