Under the caption "Who Owns Nelson," yesterday's Spokesman-Review
prints the following letter from Nelson,
concerning the affairs of our neighbor
village and to a lesser extent those of
this city. Many of the statements in
this letter will be news in both places.
Perhaps tho n.ost startling paragrap his
that containing the unblushing assertion that a number of our citizens do-
pire to form a new townsite on tho other
Bide of the line,   Tho letter follows:
"During the past week Nelson has been
aroused by another townsite movement. Several days ago a number oi the residents oi
Grand forks, six miles across the line, expressed a desire to settle In Nelson.
- "The conditions under which title to property iu thiB place is held are unsalisiactory—in
fiict.'therclsnotlUeat all. First, the ground!
»*as claimed by tbe Peons, two brothers oi Indian blood, who had a portion ot the ground
under ience. Next came the opening of the reservation to mining, and placer locations wero
filed on the lund, incltiving thegrcat portion of
the cultivated Held ol Xarcisse Toon, and a
small portion of that of his brother Dennis. In
the meantime the miners who had congregated
proceeded to lay out a town by having a preliminary survey and plat made of the ground outside the Peons' fences. The platted ground was
rapidly squatted upon, buildings were erected,
und the town now makes quite a showing.
' "A short time ago a combination of the placer
mining interests was effected and an application for patent was made under the name of
the Jim Crow Placer Mining Company, owning
16 acres of ground. Tho Peons immediately
lilcd notice contesting the application for patent.'
"To furthor complicate matters a number of
the citizens have organized a townsite company, and a potition has been sent to the secretary of the interior praying that the ground
lie set aside for townsite purposes, statiug in
their, declaration that tbe ground is more valuable for a townsite than Ior larinlng or placer
mining, and citing by way of argument that
similar actions have becu taken by citizens of
the lilack Hills and Colorado and havo been
supported by the interior department.
' "The townsite peoples' petition also prays
'that the funds realized from tho Bale of the
lands, after survey expenses are paid, be
turned over to tbe Indians, who first owned
the hind,   They also disclaim r.ny desire to ab-
Undor this decision the attornoye
can not ;see what boneflt it is to Peon
to stop the patent, oven if ho could, for
the department holds that he is not entitled personally to any rights on the
reservation, by reason of his being a
half-breed Indian. They are now looking up the matter to see what authority Captain Bubb had to give Peon any
privileges on the reservation which he
would not give to any other citizen of
the United States.

Eureka oamp, on tho Colvillo Indian resorva*
I tion, still continues to he the Mecca toward
which the eyes of the prospector and "snap investor" are turned. The camp presents a very-
lively appearance with its dusters ot tents,
brush houses, "shacks," and log cabins among
which swarm crowds.of men, with here and
thero a woman or child. Otic of the Eureka
merchants informed a Minkr representative
that 2,000 would be a fair estimate of the people
now in lhe cttinp and if this is at present overdrawn, a fow days will see that number reached,
judging from the number of new tents that are
pitched every day.
One meets there representatives from every
social class, every business profession nnd trade
while that class of professinal "do nothings" is
also well represented. Tho camp however is
unique in its general freedom from lawlessness,
ami this is undonbtly due to tbc fact that tbe
aws of the baited States  prohibit bringing In
toxicants onto the reservation,

July 22 by Henry Blair, when a-:'ked by
a   Miner   reporter   regarding   Blair's
claim on the proporty replied that there
were absolutely no grounds  whatever
for   tho   jumping.   "Do   you think I
would  leave a claim   of   mino    lyiNg
around loose so that jt could be jumped?"   Ho asked.   "Well  I  should say
not.   If that claim had to bo jumped to
hold it I would have jumped it myself."
Ho laughed  at the idea that  anyone
woul.l think tliat he would leave a claim
open to jumping.

what is almost a Bivamp. Fow

Circular Setting Forth Planks
Agreed on uy the Executive Committee.
The following circular from the execution! committee of the opposition party
has boon received!
In accordance with a request to that
effect from representative men of the
party in ull sections of tho province, the
members of the opposition in the legislature consented to uct as an executive
committee of tho party.
In that capacity the members recently
held a meeting when it win thought desirable to lay down the general principles of tho policy which lias guided tho
opposition in itscour3ein the legislature
and ou which, in the opinion of tho
committee, the party can with confidence appeal to the provincial voters at
the ensuing goneral elections.
Tho committee believes that it will
havo the support of u very large majority
of the provincial \oters, whethor they
are supporters of the opposition or tho
government, in its view that it would be
extremely detrimental to tho interests of
tho whole province at the present time
to introduce Dominion issues into the
discussion of provincial affairs.
Tho committee, in consonance with
this viow, proposes tho following as the
platform on which the opposition will
appeal to tha electorate:
1. Tho adjustment of tho ropiesenta*
tion of the provinco on a general principle, by which au equitablo system will
be established, districts thinly settled
and remote from the populous centers
receiving a larger proportionate representation than those districts with a
greater propulution and nearer tho largo
cities, while in turn those districts will
have a proportionately larger representation than tho cities of the provinco.
2. Bo organization ot the civil service
with a view to greater efficiency und
economy in administration.
3. Liberal expenditure on necessary
public works under such rigid supervision as will secure commensurate results.
i. DiscouiagJtuent of Oriental immigration.
5. The amendment of tho Land act
so lhat coal will bo recerved along with
other minerals. Timber to be disposed
ot by optn competition and in such
quantities as tho trade demands. Agricultural lands to be reserved for actual
6. Repeal of tti3 tax commonly known
as the Mortgage tax.
7. Amendment of the law in regard
to freo miners' licenses so that a mar.
shall not be compelled to tako out a
free miners' licenso beforo he can work
in a mino for wages.
8. Provincial aid to railways in tho
past having resulted unsatisfactorily,
both as regirds economy in construction and moderation in transportation
charges, any future aid to railways to be
based on efficient provincial control both
of tho raising and expenditure of the
capital and of tho r* t;s of transportation.
While Ihe committeo bo'ieves that an
administration of provincial affairs on
the lines laid down in the foregoing
platform would conduce to the goneral
prosperity and assist in the rapid de
velopmentof thegrea' natural resources
cf tho province, it does not ignore tho
fact that the most sagacious policy may
fail in results by extravagancnor incompetency in carrying it out and it con-
-.idors that tho present government is
open to the strongest condemnation in
both those respects.
With united and energetic action ou
tho part of thoso who arj in sympathy
with the views of tho opposition, the
committee has no fear of the result.
C. A. Si'.mlin, Chairman.
j they would havo more saved at the end
of the week. Dont let ui in this young'
city follow in tho footsteps of Jim Hill J
the man who balieves in employing man i
nt fifty cents a day, to work on tho rail- I
| roucls, but let us pay tho working men I
' a decent sum for their days labor and [
the City will prosper.
This is also a matter that comes  with* !
in thu province of tho city council   and
they should loso no lime  in   fixing   the
rate of wages on all city work at the J
rate of 82.50 per day.
Employ Home Labor.
As there is likely to bo sevorul thousand dollars spent in tho c'ty during tho
next fow mouths ou a water works system, and other civic works it should bo
arranged that the mon employed on
these works be local men. This idea of a
contractor importing mon f ir.any pub
lie work when ho can procure just as
good workmen at home is not right.
There are a considerable numb-r of
workmen of every description hore in
Grand Forks that can be had on short
notice and this idea of bringing in men
from the outi-ide to do this work is an
outrago to the community. The city
counc 1 ehoul I take immediate steps toward passing a by-law making it imperative for all contractors on city
works to emploj local men on Iho works.
Another point that should bo noticed
is the sn.all wages paid at present on
street work in this city; 82 n day is not
enough for a man who works all day
long in the hot sun. By tho time he
pays his board ho only has ubout seventy five cents a diy saved. In a civilized
community thin looks bad, wh,*r..as it
the men were paid at least 82.50 a day
A Hot One.
Hera is the way a Texas paper puts it:
'•When you ask a man to subscribe for
your paper and he says: 'Oh! I never
rend much, besides limes are too plagued
tight,' for God's saltes apologize to him
for the mistake and lo.ivo him. Life is
too short to wasto time in trying to
teach a mule to sing .Soprano. All gentlemen nowadays read newspapers —
and lots of them. Show us a man who
lives in a town or county and never
subscribes for tho paper published thero
and wo will show you a man whoso head
is shaped liko a piece ot pie, with tha
point up, and whose igooranco is only
exceeded by his gigantic gall. A loc-tl
newspaper is an institution that works
every day and every night, and every
docent man in the community is in
honor bound to assist in its support.
The great trouble is that somo swell-
headed galoots fancy they are making
the editor a present when thoy tako his
paper, Wo havo the profoundest sympathy for the man who lives in a town
for years and never subscribes for his
homo paper: If that poor follo.v wa3 to
encounter an idea in a lane, ho would
turn and tly tho other way, with tho
tail of hi;3 garment beating the atmis-
phere, Ouo of thorn hasn't common
sense enough to keep war u in hades."

A New Wagon Road Between Marods
and Grand Forks.
G. W. Williams, manager of the Kettle rivor stags lino was in the Forks a
coupla of days this week looking after
tho affairs of bis line. Mr. Williams
has been for tho past two weeks, in
company with ( hief Engineer Roberts,
of the .Spokane Falls & Northern railway, on the reservation examining tho
dilfarent passes from tho Columbia
river to the Kettle River valley on the
reservation, with a viow ot selecting a
feasible route over which to construct a
wagon roa I from Marou** to Eureka and
other reservation pjints, thoreby shortening the distance between thoso two
places. At present the travel mostly
comes by Grant Forks making tho distance by sta^o about 80 miles,
In conversation with a Miner representative Mr. Williams expressed tho
opinion that a road could bo built by
ono of these passes that would cut tho
distance down to 47 miles, which would
make the distance from tho railroad to
Euroka considerably shorter than by
any other route. The distance from Wil*
her being 63 miles. As to which ono of
tho passes tho proposed road wou'd bo
built o.er Mr. Williams stated that nothing delicate would be known until
such time3 a3 Mr. Roberts had made
his roport. D. C. Corbin hid agreed to
giro 81,000 toward tho construction of
tho road and it ia thought that no
trouble will bo experienced in raising
the balance of the money needed. Upon
tbe completion of the road it is Mr. Williams' intention to put a daily stage on
the route making the trip in about the
sain.) time and manner tho run is being
made between Marcus and Grand

No Use for Wild Cats.
The Spokesman Review says that the

According to the Victoria Colonist of
the 22nd inst. D, C. Corbin, president
of the Nelson & Fort Shoppard railway,
and Jay II. Adams, of Spokane, were in
Victoria on that date. One of the objects of Mr. Corbin's visit was to see tho

legislature for ths survey of the N. & F.
S. laud grant.
Happy Enough, But —
Mr, Corbin, of the Spokane Pulls nnd Northern, has a force of engineers in Iho lield surveying a line from Northport to Grand  Forks, and
the people of that section are correspondingly
happy.   They scorn eveu more pleased than if i

Iu tlie ISouodiry Crea-**' Times ol the
24tii inat ive lind the following wail:
•'When the mining division <>{ Orand
Forks wan created wo von lured th*** as-
hrrli. n that the object of tho government in cj-.tom.ling iho western
lioundary to the lummil let«'><D
tbe North Fork end K ttle i vj .
was for the puiposo of HSKiniing
llin.-e interested in Urjnd Forks town-
*-it« in making the iavtstil.g publiu bo-
ii.-vi* that Grand Forks was tha centre
<f u large und important mining district, 'lho last ibsuo of tne Gbahd
Fokkb Minsk attrtnps to boom tlie .Duly created division because tho Golden
Crown wus among Ihapr p'rU-sinclu '-
iii therein. The Times fully endorses
ever; word tbat is said bv the Miner
commendatory of the Gdden Crown,
l.ut neither the B-ar.il.n anil Golden
Crown mining company—nor Grand
i'orkp, for that mutter—will bo benelit-
tecl by tho assertion that "u.ider tho
i.e.v arrange., ect o. opining divisions
1Mb property belong-;to t**i* Gi«'id Forks
mining division, and ils development
will be a great l**-*lp toward milking this
lho greatest tuineral district in the
country." The Golden Crown, like
other valuable proporiios io Wellington
camp, are being operated from Groan
wood, when*, its manager makos his
lieadquarters, buy-) all supplies and
transacts ail busiuefs cosnetited with
the mine. BecauBe tbogovornmont saw
lit lo place a portion of Wellington

i-iiiii property owners aro of eourso compelled to go thw-i to transact any busi-
lieenconn .'ctu I with the recorder's u!Ii.*i\
l.ut beyond that Ibeii a inflection ceueos
with that pretty little ronii village on
the banks of tlie Kettle river. We are
quite wil.ing to give Grand Fork:-" ail
thu credit for hying adjacent to thi Volcanic and a few other oluirns, but properties in Wellington and Greotiwood
catupt, are liibutary to Greenwood, ns
thOKupplies for allot them lire pureLased
We are soiry our neighbor, representative of lho charming'y locate*! min*
iag camp of Greenwood, sees lit to get
its ire up and cttl Grand Forks disparaging names because wo v.'ero unfortunate euccit.li to mention, in writing up
tin; Golden Crown, that this property
liea within Ui.s Grand Forks mining district. We didn't say thai tho supplies
tor tho mino wore purchased here, and
if the Greenwood iperuhabts are inter*
prising enough to shut out uompetelioo
in selling the Brand in & Golden Crown

men, wo can only say that they deserve
commendation foi such enterprise and
the tame is herewith extended.
Had we suspected that the fivo lines
to which the Times objects would have
rulil'd their feathers, tluy would probably havo never been written. Wo dislike any controversy wilh our neighbor
journalists. Wo have onough in that
line to attend to at home. Tho Times
will then-fore take notice that in writ

irons and in some instance no doubt
just. A trade license is proper in most
I'iisn*-', Lut caro should be taken, that
it is not carried tuo far, and while it may
prove a benefit to tho city in tho shape
of rovonue, still in tho matter if trade
it may provo a detriment Wo will tako
it for instance, is any ono so short sighted as to think for a moment tliat tlio
farmers of Grand Prairie will como to
Grand Forks to trade, if thoy are compelled to pay a lico.isj of &» every six
months for tho prlvolege of marketing
their produce, as provided for in eectioo !>
of tbo schedule With but a few exceptions it will bo fonud that they will give
tbo town u wide birth, and do their
trading were they aro not forced to pay-
tor that privilege
Tbo vast difference botweon tbo rate
exacted between a merchant thut carries
u 830,000 stock and that of a livery stable
keeper, is another bone of contention.
Uy observing tho schedule it will be
seen that the former is "hold-up" for
only 810 a year, whilo tho lattor is required to produce 830.   Is it just?
When it comes to planing a tax on an
individual who by tbo force of cirouiu-
btdncs ia compsllod to gain a livelihood
by tbo sweat of his brow, sueh as con
tractors, manufactures, etc., itiaevldent
that someone Iuie used bud judgment.
Tho city could better afford to foster and
subsidise institutions of that character
than place a tax on them.
The MiNf.uia of tho opinion that it tho
gentlon.en who drafted tbe by-law had
taken   the  government schedule  as a I
guide there would bavo boon k-ss causo •
for complaint.
The*. London Sun expresses the opinion thut Secretary Sherman's mtssage
on the seal question infers tnat Uncle
Sam wants to "scrap." The editor of
tho Sun, it is plain, is cot acquainted
« ith that old gentleman. Senator Sherman is a "dead game" politician, ac-
custo-rod to imputing evil motives to
eveiybody that io not on hia side of tbo
fence, and docs not draw the lino bo-
t'.vpon tbe language of politics and that
of diplomacy. Thero aro ten chances to
one he would not stow tho least inita-
tlpj should Lird Salisbury, if such a
thing were possible, openly express" tno
opinion tbat in its position the Unitud
btates was dishonest.
Hekr Andkbb has started on his attempt to roach tho North Polo by ba-
loon. Men who haw given tho subject
BnfBcieot stirJy to qualify tbe:n to talk
un tho mattor believe that it ia possible
by JhiB means to aecoruplibh what Nan-
sen ant) so many others have failed to
do hy water. Still the common overy
day Uiiocl will consider the undertaking
m >re dangerous even than tho Arctic
Yontures, and are willing togivo bigger
odd.-? than a Grand Forks sport on a
fobbed" horse race, that tho courageous
Andres will land in that port from which
no traveller leturr.B.
Tin: Nolson Tribune speaks disparagingly of tbe construction of the railroad
from Pentieton to Boundary creok and
alludes to it simply as a scheme for tho
"outdoor relief" of Victoria laboring
men. Woll may tho tribune throw
old water on the construction of tbio
road for with its completion this will bo
one of lhe greatest mining camps in tho
province, and tho ruph. to ii will c-quul
that of tho Klondyke.
Mr. Heinzb has offered tho LoRoi
peoplo a free smolter site, certain adjacent wator powi r, half of a townsite and
a half Interest in th© water power he
controls at Sayward, if thoy will locate
their proposed smelter at Trail. It
would bo a good thing for Grand Forks
if tho townsite company would quit
trying to do so nrmy big thin?-? and do
a few Biuull ones like Mr. Heinzo.
Every mine owner and holder of a
claim should lend all assistance possible
towards making tha exhibit of minerals
at tho Okanagan Agricultural and
Traders* exhibition one ttat will reflect
credit on the Grand Forks mining division. Specimens shojld ho sent in at as
early date as possible and left at tho
office of Filley & Ogden, who will have
charge of tho exhibit from this city.
Thk sale of the ilonanzi mine, near
Baker ( ity, Oregon, to an eastern syndicate for 8760,0130, is an evidence that
eastern capital is moving this way for
investment in leg'tmate mining properties. Whenever a initio owner can show
that he has something of merit ho will
experience no trouble in Eluding a purchaser at a good round figure.

recommended that the bill be paid as it
stood. L, A, Manly moved that the
bill be paid aud a vote of the council
showed no dissenting voice.
, L. A. Manly moved that tenders be
called for tofill the Bridge street slough.
The cleric was directed to prepare the
tenders calling for a stated amount per
yard, the gravel to be brought from tho
Main street hill.
Tho by-law relative to borrowing
$20,000 was considered in committee of
the whole and passed its third  reading.
L. A. Manly moved that tho clerk pre-1
pare the bond uf.tlio city troasuror who
has reconsidered  his   intention of   resigning.   Carried.
The cily clork was directed to receive
bids from Shaw-Borden 3s Co. and
John W. Graham tic Uj. of Spokane for
printing tho city bonds.
Tho couccil then adjourned.
The Last Week's Meeting.
Tho city council mot Wednesday afternoon in lieu of the mooting adjourned
' from Friday. Mayor Manlv was present to preside. Iho minutes of the
last meeting, held July 16, woro read
and approved.
A letter was received from the pro*
vinciiil secretary, giving notice of the
appointment of J. K, Johnson as justice
of the peace. A letter was also received
'fniQ J, A. McGilvord of tho Independent
Order of Foresters, to tho effect that
the order has ceased loaning money on
city debentures. A letter from C. Q,
Bmitb, city clork of Everett, olToriug
for sale a two-tank chemical engine. A
number of letters were read fioui companies wishing to Hgure on putting in
electric lights and waterworks, All
these letters were placed on file for future roference,
B. II. Roso presented a letter uskicg
permission lo build 12 feet over the
rivor bank on lot 25. Tlie permission
was given.
The mayor presented a verbal communication to the effect that a Mr.
Daly of Rossland, a public contractor,
wishes to bid on putting in waterworks
Bnd will bo ovor nest week to look over
the ground.
The finance committee reported on
the Miner's bill for printing to the
effect that the account was onl a half-
rate charge for printing and recommended that the bill bo paid as it was
presented. Dr. Hepworth, chairman of
the committee, sail that there could
probably bo uo reduction made and it
was not much uso to kick.
The mayor believod tho only thing to
do was to pay the bill.
W. K. C. Manly hadn't changed his
opinion, he said, as to its being an exorbitant chargo and wanted to know who
bad tho authority of making tho printing rates. He suid if any more printing
was to be done tho rate should bo fixed
before the order for printing waB done.
Mayor Manly said that the charge
wuh based ou tho charge of tho Gazette
aud W. tt. C. then gave another com*
. parison between thU town and other
towns where city printing is done,
claiming that in a small town legal
notices should cost less than ln a large
Alderman Johnson explained thai
the regular legal rate of the paper had
been cut in two for the city. He said
that tho Vernon News charged the same
rate and W. K. C, Manly said he would
bet that the News had ten times tho
circulation of the Minkii. This proposition was too ridiculous to bo controverted.
Dr. Hepworth and Mayor Manly said
that tho criterion to go by was the comparative circulation of tho newspapers,
W. K. C. Manly Baid that if he wanted
the Bnmo amount of advertising in the
Miner ho would get it done for halt the
The  mayor  recommended   that the

Thin recommendation   was    adopted
and that bug a-bear,  the bridge  street
road, was broi ched.    The cost of  grad
ing the street has not yet been reportod
to the council but it is understood that
! not enough is left of the 82,000 to fill in
i the slough.   The mattor  of  putting in
water works was discussed and Alder-
I man Davis championed tho causo of not
spending any money und wailing for
tho "country ta go ahead."    L. A. Mau-
ly shewed that no new buildings could
be ei[.ected  until  wator   works   were
built and that tho reduction in insurance alone would pay tho cost of the
wator works. Davis said that there
were somo tax payers that didn't pay insurance (he is probably one of them.)
That this is only a mining town and we
don't know whether it is going to
amount to anything or not. He said
wator works wouldn't build a town,
W. K. C. Manly said that one thing is
sure, that a town will not bo built until the residents lustle for public improvements.
The mayor said that there was no
doubt a3 to the permanency of the town.
Ho knew positively of ono railroad that
was coming in here next Bummer and
there would certainly bo a large number ot people hero in the spring,
Davis said that whon w;ater works
were built they "cost liko the very devil."
Mayor Manly explained how a waterworks syotem in keoping with the needs
of tho town could bo built without any
great eXpenro, and both waterworks
and olectric light system will pay their
way when once started.
It was decided finally that the whole
question revertod to whether tho city
should mako the $20,000 loan or nol.
.vlayor Manly stated that this amount
will pay for all improvements necessary
at present, and the interest charge will
work no hardship on the taxpayers,
L, A, Manly accused Davis of weaken ■
ing on the country. "Havo the hills do
predated any?" he asked. "You busi
ness men came in here on the belief
that the mineral was in tho hills. Because a railroad hasn't como in hero the
mines are no less valuable but on the
contrary thoy are getting better all the
The mayor believed that a light system and waterworks would do more for
tbo town than anything that could be
done. Thoy lend stability to a town
and assuro the protection of property,
thus encouraging building vontureB.
Besido the proporty protection tho
ylectric lights would cost consumers less
than coal oil and would moro than pay
tho expenso of running.
After a lengthy discussion relative lo
issuing bonds for the 820,000 the clerk
produced the by-law relative to tho same
which was drawn a month or more agov
lho bylaw was introduced by Hep*
wortn and considered, passing through
its first and second readings, final consideration boing doforred until next
Friday's meeting.
W. K. C. Manly movod for permission
to intioduce at tho next meeting a bylaw relative to laying sidewalks, Tho
motion was carried.
The city clerk 'was, on motion of Dr.
llepwoith, Instructed to write to Osoyoos for the city's rebate for provincial
taxes, also to Midway for permission to
use tho provincial jail for city prisoners.
The matter of tho treasurer's bonds
was again brought up, tho city clerk
stating that ho had not yet instructed
the treasurer to furnish tho samo, His
order to do so was continued,
W. K. C. Manly stated that the Qre
company was figuring on getting a donation of a lot from the townsite company and wanted the city to build a city
hall on the same. It Boomed to bo the
sentin ent of tho council, however, that
the city could do without a city hall for
a year at least and it was ordored that a
shed for keeping the ladderB and buck-
eta be c*matructed on tho lot at the
west end of tho bridgo in case permission can bo secured from the townsite
company for usiug tho property,
An adjournment was then taken until Friday afternoon,
