A BAD MAN IN TO^m.
He Finally Brings op in the City Lockup
After Giving the Officers a Hard
Tassel.
The city police force have been having lots of fun this week. On Wednesday, a bad man from "Bitter Creek"
came to town. He had more money
tban he knew what to do with. So he
began to blow it in for "booze." After be
bad several drinks, begot itnphis "nose"
that be was the best man in B. C, and
that he could "ride anything that trod
the streets of Grand Forks." With this
idea imbided in his bead, he started out
in search of trouble. Not finding anybody lhat wanted to measure strength
with bim, just for pastime, he became
more abusive than ever. Finally be was
advised by friends to keep still, as ths
attention of the police had becn called
to the way he was acting. He then
and there declared himself. "There was
not enough men in Grand Forks to lock
bim up " Later on he went to the
blacksmith shop of Mr. Feeney, who he
wanted to fight whether or no, Mr. Feeney
finally becoming tired of bis abuse
and caused* his arrest. When Officers
Sheads and Kelly went to make the arrest, he made an attempt to make his
word good. He was finally landed in
the city jail, but not until Office Kelly
bad rapped him over the bead several
times with his club. On Thursday
morning, on the advice of Police Magistrate Johnson, the "bad man" contributed $25 to the city exchequer.

besides a kitchen, dining room, office
and bar room, which are all on tbc
ground floor, and so arranged th.it the
guests of the house can go to any one
of them, without passing through any of
the others unless they so desire. During the week decorators and paper-
hangers have been at work putting
the finishing touches on the bar room
and office and tbey now present a
very metropolitan appearance. The
back-bar and other fixtures, which got
lost in the freight jam recently.have been
located at last, and will arrive sometime
next week and when placed in position,
there will be no bar in tbe Boundary
district that will compare with it. The

One man dead, Nigbt WatchmanKen-
nedy shot in the fleshy part under tbe
arm, and another man winged is the result of a shooting affray in Cascade
City last Tuesday morning.
Word reached here Wednesday afternoon of a shooting scrape which occurred Tuesday morning between 4 and 5
o'clock, at Cascade City, in which Pat
Kennedy, the night watchman of that
place, got a flesh wound in tbe side, and
Tiin Sullivan, who was attempting to
liberate a friend from the town lock-up,
was shot through the.stomach, from the
effects nf which, it is said, he died, and
a man by tbe name of O'Neil was winged in attempting to make his escape.
A good many rumors are aflout regarding the circumstances leading up
to the shooting and the m st authentic
as far as wc are able to learn are about
as follows:
Last Monday Tlm Sullivan, a man by
tbe name of Jtmes Miller and a companion, railroad laborers wbo bad been
working in one of the camps between
Gladstone and Cascade City, proceeded
to fill up on "booze,"
During the afternoon James Miller
was arrested by Night Watchman Kennedy and locked up in the town "holdover" on r charge of stealing Hi.00 from
an Italian. During the evening
his three companions proceeded to en
tertain the night watchman in a most
royal manner. About 4 o'clock Tuesday morning Sullivan and O'Neil dropped out of the party and went to tbc
calaboose for the purpose of liberating
Miller. Shortly after their departure
tbe officer noticed their absence, and
from remarks tbat had been dropped.
during the evening mistrusted the cause
of their absence and borrowing a revolver trom the bartender at the Commercial, went in search of his newly made
acquaintances. In coming out of
Black's he saw two men in tbe vicinity
of the jail and went over tn investigate.
On seeing him coming the men stepped
into tbe alley. Just as Officer Kennedy
reached the alley one of the men sprang
out and struck at him; he dodged thc
blow, but in doing so fell. While on
the ground one of tbc two men took a
shot at him, tbe ball striking the flesh
under the arm and glanced off. The
two men then started to run. Officer
Kennedy ordering them to halt, and
tbey refusing to do so, he commenced
shooting at tbem. Sullivan received a
ball in the small of the back, which passed through tbe right kidney, coming
out at the brea-1. He fell as soon as bit
and was taken to the Commercial hotel,
trom wbich place he waa removed to
tbe hospital.
Tbe companion of Sullivan made his
escape in the dark, but from circumstances which occurred shortly afterword it is believed that he was also
wounded.
It is understood that Officer Kennedy
has been arrested and will be tried for
shooting the man by tbe provincial authorities.
Only a Kid.
The Midway Advance in its last issue
says: "Now that the Bank ot Halifax
bas opened a branch at Grand Foiks, it
will not be safe for the Boundaiy Creek
Times to refer to banking matters at
that point, or it will be accused of having again contracted that dreadful disease "green eye." Grand Forks is to be
congratulated upon being able to give
to the world such an evidence of prosperity as that afforded by the establishment of a chartered bank. "Midway's
turn will como" apd then will be fulfilled tbe prophesy of the great father of
the town who hath on more than one
occasisn made use of this expression."
The trouble with the Boundary Creek
Times is tbat the editor of it is a novice in the newspaper business and is
inclined to let tbe prosperity of any
other place but Gioenwood irritate him
to such an extent, that ho allows himself to say a great many things that he
is sorry for afterwards. But then, you
must remember that he is nothing but
a "Kid" and he will get over thr-se
shortcomings as he grows older,
Commenced Work.

SATURDAY. DECEMBER   3rd,  1S5F,
GENERAL PROSPERITY.
That lhe prosperous times so long
predicted have commenced at last is
patent to every ono at all familiar wilh
the present condition of affairs throughout the Boundary country. The rapid
grading of the C. P. R. line, and the
vigorous manner in which thc work is
still carried on, has given confidence
in the intentions of that corporation to
complete the road with the least possible delay, and this assurance has inspired the commercial, monetary and
mining Interests of the country to new
and more energetic efforts than ha s
hitherto been characteristic of the business concerns of the Boundary country.
That business of all kinds has heretofore been dull, and that with but indifferent prospects for the opening of our
mining interests, upon which the prosperity of the country really depends,
there was really soms reason for such a
state of adairs, is perfectly true. New,
however, all tbis is altered, and a stranger
would hardly recognize the country today as the one of two months ago, so
great has been the change in every way.
One of the surest signs of a prosperous and definite condition of affairs here
has been the establishment, both in
llrand Forks and Greenwood, of branch
es ot four of the principal charter banks
Ot tbe Duuilllluil. Theso institutions
have commenced business and tave
doubtless satisfied themselves of the
permanent condition of affairs which
exist, and will develop here, in the future. That they will do an immense
business goes without saying, and that
tbe country will be benefited and invigorated by their presence and assistance
is also certain. In addition to the establishment cf these banks the investment by Toronto parties of a large
amount in the purchase of thc Grand
Forks towr.site and surrounding properties, and the expressed intention of
the purchasers to make this the leading
wholesale and commercial center of
Southern B. C. all combines to give confidence, and stimulate tbe established
interests of the country, as well as the
investment of fresh capital,whicb promises to be on a large scale, and in some
degree commensurate with the magnificent resources of the district.
With the completion of the railway
during the coming year, and the consequent development of tbe mining interests of the district, it may be confidently expected that local smelting, will receive the attention it so well deserves,
and which the immense quantities of low
and middle grade mineral existing here,
will force on the attention of the owners
of such properties, as well as attract
capitalists who will be quick to perceive
the opening for the renumerative employment of reduction works in this section. Then within all probability two
railways, the mineral deposits opened
up, and their product handled by local
reduction works, with the management
of the principal centres in the hands oi
wealthy and experienced men, the activity tbrcugbout tbis section will be
something wonderful in comparison with
whicb the prosperity of today, although
very considerably will be  insigniiicf.ni.
The city council at Grand Forks has
voted $500 to Richard Armstrong, who
is going east to protest against the C.
P, R. locating its station two miles
away from the lower town. It would
be interesting to learn the council's au
tbority for making this appropriatron.—
Boundary Creek Times.
The Miner does not desire to say
anything to reflect upon the truth and
varacity of the editor of our esteemed
cotemporary, but we cannot but help
thinking that he has a faculty of making "misrepresentations" whenever he
refers to Grand Forks. The city council did not vote $500 to Mr. Armstrong
as stated by tbe Times. It merely
placed that amount at the disposal of
the mayor, to be used as he may deem
best, to secure Irom the C. & VV. railway, the best arrangement possible in
the interest of the city. Wo would not
refer to this matter, but according to
his own statement "there is nothing lo
be gained by misrepresentations,"
"What is good for the goose is good for
the gander."

Mr. F. Crocker who is putting in* the
water plant here, has a gang of men at
work constructing a dam 1,500 feet up
Fisherman creek, the water will then be
conveyed in mains through Mr. Ward's

tank will be placed on Main street for
use of freighters and teamsters.

The Cascade Maple Leaf is a strong
advocate of the Corbin charter in referring to it editorially in its last issue it
says:
"But what right has the government
to refuse to grant any man a charter,
without a bonus of any kind. They
might as well refuse a license to an
American, to sell soap or socks, in order to protect tbe Canadian dealer.
Canada is under no oblieations to tbe
C. P. R., they have had their roads
built with the peoples' money, and all
the people have received in return was
tbe privilege of paying five cents a mile
to ride on what ought to be their own.
Corbin's is a fair business proposition,
all bc neks for is the privilege of spending a lew million dollars in the country,
and why should he be refused."
Let the man who is discontented
with our climate spend an hour reading
h: appalling accounts whicb come
Irom all parts of the country of storms,
snowfalls and blizzards. Philadelphia
I is suffering from a winter which is said
10 be worse even than that which
brought tbo memorable blizzard of ten
years ago. Some day we will have just
a slight touch of winter which will serve
to suggest what it must be like in the
cast, but no mote.
The NelBon Economist say**: "The
Young Mens' Christian Association of
Victoria has gone out ot business. The
question now is, are Victorians so good
as to no longer require a Young Mens'
Christian A sociation, or are they so far
sunk in iniquity as to he'ihclaimable?
The Boundary Creek Times denies
the statement made by this paper that
the C. P. It. is getttng a land grant and
$4,000 a mile for building a road from
Robson to Midway, and its spirited repudiation of this vile slander will be
everywhere honored if the same is endorsed by the attorney-general.
Winnfpeg Liberalism retains enough
virtue to make a thirty-six volt kick
against putting C. P. R. buttons on the
parly's cloth, and who can say even
that much for the Liberalism of this
province.
Gentlemen of the late opposition
party who have not yet found an abiding place should not tail to keep in
mind that the good "old party" always
keeps open house.
The moral wave is now doing business in Grand Forks. Immoral persons generally provide life-preservers
when the moral wave turns loose.
Mayor Davis' friends have unanimously docided to support him for reelection. Whether or not he will have
a walk-over remains to be seen.
At present Grand Forks seems to
have a lead-pipe cinch on being the
wholesale, mining and commercial center of ;he Boundary country.

RECEIVED WITH THANKS.
In its issue of last week the Bound*
ary Creek Times tenders us advice regarding a misrepresentation of thc C. P.
R. Perhaps we are in need of this attention from our sprightly contemporary
but we are not sure but what we could
have worried along without it.
It might perhaps be a good thing for
tbe times and its patrons if the management of that paper would live his attention to what we are doing and more to
the especial business of the paper tbey
are publishing, so that they likewise
may be in a position to do good work
for the Boundary country, whatever it be
in furthering the interests of the Corbin
charter or in producing a paper that
will meet with respect and attention
both at home and abroad.

Last summer the city council passed
a by-law imposing a tux of $i 00on male
dogs, and $2 for each female dog. At
the time the by-law was passed a number of owners of dogs wee "beld-up"
for tbe tax, wbich was right and proper,
At present tbe town is full of dogs,
among whicb are a lot of curs, wbo
bave neither tag or owner. The city
marshal should see to it that every dog
has a tag or is killed at once. The object of the by-law waa not so much for
the purpose of deriving revenue as it
was to keep tne town from being overriden with dogs.
