WEST FORK CLAIMS
Fine Showings on a Number
of  Claims,
Which Will Be Developed all Winter���Monte Christo Has Some Great
Values.
Several parties have returned from the
West Fork last and this week and report
the indications there as very good.
Jack Empey, Mr. Brown's manager,
says that about 40 men will be engaged
all winter around Beaverton, and that
development will be carried on about
a dozen claims. Work is going on on
the Washington and Idaho claims. Six
men are at work for Mr. Empey who has
laid in a good winter's supply, and who
will increase the force. The principle
development work is on Boomerang,
Cranberry and Wilson Creeks where a
number of good claims are  showing up.
R. Malcolm, who has been in the
West Fork country all Summer, returned
on Friday and repurts his claims on
which he has been working and adjoining the Idaho and Washington, as
showing up satisfactorily.
J. B. Boone, is also back from Boomerang Creek where he is interested in

by the new company. The Miner is at
liberty to mention that long Lake is one
of the points referred to.
Big Lumber Syndicate.
G. 0. Buchanan, Kaslo's lumberman,
arrived here yesterday. I hi has perfected the organization of a lumber syndicate which will have its headquarters at
Columbia. A capital of $1,(100,000 is
said to be behind the enterprise. Every
mill in the Bonndary as well as all mill
sites have been secured, and all lumber
hinds tributary We are promised bow-
ever that the price of lumber is not to be
advanced, but rather to the contrary.
Moreover, there will be a chance of obtaining seasoned lumber, something
that can not be obtained now on account
of the great demand.���Columbia .Miner.
Provincial Poll Tax.
Provincial Constable Dinsmore has
been rounding up the boys for the governmental assessment of $15.00 per head,
consequently there has been some remarkably able dodging done, back doors,
and alleys being used in preference to
the usual exits from hotels, stores, etc.
The number of American citizens in
town, only for a short visit, who tried to
impress on the collector that they were
not living here, will materially reduce
the population of Greenwood if their
statements are correct. However, Mr.
Dinsmore is not easily impressed.

LIGHT AND TRAMWAY
Both in Shape for Submission
to the People.
The Council Had Three Propositions
Before Them ��� A Local Company
Gets Both Franchises.
On Monday evening an adjourned
meeting of the council was held, when
the electric light and tramway proposals
were considered. The principal business was the consideration of the electric
light agreement in committee, after receiving two readings. It occupied the
aldermen until a late hour.
There was another long meeting of the
Council on Monday evening. It was
after two o'clock a.m. before an adjournment was made. All the aldermen were
present, and the subject of chief interest
dealt with was the electric light franchise. Paul Johnson sent a letter in
asking for a bonus of twenty-five acres
for the smelter, being built by the B. C.
Copper company. They had heretofore
asked for no concessions. The value of
the land wanted was $3600.
A proposition was submitted by Hugh
Sutherland to instal and operate nn
electric light plant and build a tramway
to Phoenix. He proposed to supply
light as follows: 16 c. p. all night, $1,35;
for lighting stores and places of business
$1; for rooms and private houses, 65 c.
per month; for 2000 c p. arc lights,
8 33 c per month. He asked for an exclusive right of franchise for ten years.
He agreed also to build a tramway to
Phoenix on a guarantee of 5 per cent on
$100,000, if a charter could be obtained, and to sell the electric light back
to the city at any time at an advance of
20 per cent on the cost.
The question of amending the licence
by-law, as raised by Aid. Galloway's
amendment, was first discussed. The
city solicitor declared, after careful consideration, that such an amendment
would be bad in law and liable to mulct
tbe city in costs. Mr. Pringle who prepared the amendment and was
responsible for it, asked in what respect
it was bad and how it contravened the
statutes. Aid. Galloway and Wood took
the position that quality and not quantity of music halls was what they
wanted, and the only way to assure that
was to limit the number, and raise the
standard of the buildings to be erected. If
they had tohave music halls they should
be good ones. The Mayor considered
the by-law was bad in law and principle.
He did not believe in restricting legitimate business and placing it practically
in the hands of one man. If it were not
legitimate the city should have nothing
to do with it. The city solicitor explained the position from a legal point
of view, contending that a judge would
hold it to be bad law as creating a
monopoly, and in any action the city
would be liable to costs and damages.
The discussion was carried on for some
time and became rather personal before
it ended.
On a vote being taken Mr. Galloway's
amendment was carried as follows:
For���Galloway, Beath, Wood,Cameron,
Against���Fisher and Sutherland. Thereupon the city solicitor promptly offered
his resignation, saying that evidently,
they were not willing to be guided by
his advice.
When the council began to consider
the electric light and tramway propo
sition, Mr, Pringle asked for an adjournment until Wednesday in order to give
his clients an opportunity to submit an
agreement, the substance of which was
embodied in the letter already before
them. His clients were first in tlie field,
and all they wanted now was a chance
to compete on fair terms. The offer
read was a more favorable one than that
submitted by Mr. Mcintosh. Mr. Shaw
opposed the adjournment. The council
had passed a resolution in favor of considering Mr. Mcintosh's proposal, and
now they wanted it dealt with, either
'���yes" or "no," tonight. Mr. Pringle's
clients had the matter in har.d three
months now and had done nothing with
it. He assumed they wanted electric
light as soon as possible. Mayor Hardy
said they had started to do business
with Mr. Mcintosh and his associates,
whom they all knew well, and he
thought they ought to continue to do
business. Having got the matter so
far it would be bad policy to turn them
down. He admitted that the prices
offered by Mr. Pringle's clients were
better, but that was a matter for arrangement. He suggested placing Mr. Sutherland's letter on file for reference. They
wanted electric light and a tramway,
and they could only deal with one company at a time. They could fix the
terms to suit. Messrs. Sutherland,
Beath and Cameron wanted to go on at
once. Aid. Galloway was in favor of
making haste slowly, and wanted the
adjournment. It was not good policy to
settle in 10 minutes something that was
going to last for ten years. Mr. Mcintosh wanted the matter settled at once
one way or another. They had put their
money up and were to do business and
carry out their agreement. Turn us
down, he said, and we are out of it. The
Mayor urged that he was tired coming
to council so often on this business. Mr.
Galloway said he was not tired so long
as the city was making money out of it.
Council then went into committee of
the whole to consider the agreement
with Mr. Mcintosh. The following
schedule of rate, was agreed upon : 16 e.
p. for all night, $1.50 per mouth; for
stores and business houses, $1.25; for
dining rooms, $1.00; for private houses,
bedrooms, etc., 65c ; the above rates are
subject to reduction of 10 per cent when
5,000 or more lights are in use, and to
15 per cent, from the reduced rate when
the number has increased to 7500. For
arc lights of 2000 c. p. there is a flat rate
of $10 per month, streets to be kept
lighted from dark till dawn, all lamps
to be owned by tlie company. The
company agrees to instal a plant and
operate it within ninety days after the
passing oi the by-law or forfeit $100 a
day as liquidated damages. It is also
agreed that the tramway is to be built
to Phoenix, provided that a franchise
can he obtained. At any time the company should desire to sell their righls,
etc., the city has the litst right to buy.
The tramway is to be undertaken on or
before the 30th of March next.
It is nesdless to say that there was a
good deal of trouble in settling the details. When the matter of the price of
lights was being discussed, Mr. Sutherland addressed the council. He said he
was not aware until he reached Phoenix
the day before that Mr. Mcintosh was
making an offer to the city. He did not
wish to stand in his way at all. When
he reached the city he asked the Mayor
if a proposition were submitted to him
if it would be considered. The Mayor
told him it would, and it was on that
understanding that the letter was sent
to the council. As it was now, his offer
had not been considered, and it had
been used to cut  down   Mr.   Mcintosh.

DISSOLUTION  NOTICE.
The Similkameen section is rapidly
taking a prominent position among tin.
prominent mining camps of British Columbia. Copper mountain will be tested thoroughly this winter, as the Sun-
Bet Copper Co. are pushing development
on their properties. R. A. Brown, the
energetic manager of the company, has
engaged all the available men in the district ; a hoisting plant and pump bave
been purchased, and a road is now under construction from Princeton, which
will be completed in a few days. The
shaft on the Sunset is now over 50 feet
deep and all in ore which will average
about 18 per cent, copper. An idea of
tho value of this property may be
formed when it is known that every
man working for the company is anxious to take stock for wages, Mr.
Brown intends to sink to a depth of 100
feet before cross-cutting; at this depth
the width of the ore body will be demonstrated, and as it is variously estab-
liahed at from 250 to 700 feet wide, the
big ledges in the Boundary camps will
have, to look to their laurels.
On Kennedy mountain several promising claims are being worked. R. Spencer, of Vancouver, has a force ol men
working on the properties owned by a
strong Coast syndicate, who intend to
continue developing '.bis winter. The
Cincinnatti claim, on Copper Butte,
owned by the Pate brothers, is one of
the banner showings of tho district,
The ledge has been cross-cut in several
places for two thousand feet, average
assays from seven feet of oro giving total
values of from $88 to lfo7 in copper, silver am! void. Messrs. Bun and Jones
have been working on the Sunrise shaft,
the bottom of which is now all in ore
showing very fine copper sulphides.

ELECTRIC   LIGHT   FRANCHISE.
patters took an unexpected change
on Monday night last with the coming
of Hugh Sutherland, presumably on behalf ot the Dominion Copper Co. He
made an offer for the lighting on a
considerably reduced basis, with the result that the Mcintosh syndicate met
the cut, and at the time of writing at
leait has the prospects of carrying out
the combined undertakings of lighting
the city and building a tramway to
Phcenix. No time will, or should, be
lost with respect to either. The town is
suffering from the want of electric light,
which, notwithstanding its enterprise
and energy otherwise, it has been very
slow in obtaining. Greenwood should
have been lighted long ago, and, moreover, the city should have owned its own
system. As it is now, there is neither
time nor money to undertake the work
municipally ; and under the schedule of
prices agreed upon Monday night I
Greenwood will have cheap lighting,
while with the men there are at the I
head of it. no time will be lost.    We are j
reasonably sure of getting the light earlv
���    .1 '
in the coming year.
What the prospects are  for obtaining j
a franchise for a tramway it is hard  to j
say,   hut   for    a   passenger   and  light
freight tramway, there ought  to  be  no
opposition.     Naturally,   tbe  C.   P.   R.,
after building  its extensive system  of
spurs into the  various  mining camps i
would object to opposition from the city |
in hauling ores.    As  a   matter of  fact,
however, a tramway could not carry ore
In competition with  the  railway  company,   whose  facilities  are  very  much
better.   Of course, in   the case  of ores
on the line this side of Phcenix, it should
be able to handle them  without   trou-;
ble, and without really coming into com- '���
petition with the railway, until at all
events the latter had built in its spurs
to the mines.

Ik the report be true that the mine
owners about Sandon are importing
Italion laborers to work in the mines,
their action is not calculated to strengthen their side of the case. It is unfortunate that the former harmonious
relations between the mine owners and
the miners should have been disturbed
by the 8-hour law, but now that it is law,
an effort should be made by both parties to avoid a resort to measures such as
the importation of foreign labor. The
principal benefit to be derived from
mining Industry in any country is the
expenditure of money as wages. The
dividends for the greater part go out to
the money centres. If our mines were
to be worked by foreign labor as well as
by foreign capital we might as well he
without them altogether. From any
point of view it is to be deprecated.

A DIRECT RAILWAY
From the Coast to Boundary is
Being Agitated
By the Vancouver Board of Trade���
An Address  to President Shaughnessy and His Reply.
While at the Coast, Mr. Shaughnessy
was banqueted at Vancouver, and also
waited upon officially by the Board of
Trade. An address read to him contained the following, which is of special
interest here:
"There is a matter of paramount importance to the community, to which
we desire to take this opportunity of
directing your attention. For some
time past, since the phenomenal development which has taken place in the
Kootenays, and Boundary districts, the
shippers of. Vancouver and other British Columbia Coast points have felt the
vital necessity of closer and more direct
connection with these important sections of the Province. In consequence
of the long and circuitous route, which
passengers and freight are compelled to
take, we rind that business that legitimately belongs to Coast cities is divided
into other channels largely United
States, owing to the length of time
necessary to transport freight and passengers by the present route.
We therefore consider the time has
arrived when active steps must be taken
to secure for this and other Coast cities
the full advantage which would accrue
to them by the construction of a more
direct line to Kootenay and Boundary
districts, connecting with the present system under construction, We therefore request that the Canadian Pacific Company
will convey to us some definite information as to their intention in connection
with this road."
Mr. Butcombe, viee-Pre.sident, addressed Mr, Shaughnessy on a number
of topics and among other things he is
reported by the NewsiAdvertiser to have
said:
"This was not the case, however, and
he instanced the delay in the carrying of
freight between here and Kootenay and
Boundary districts. Very serious delays
had occurred , and last year there was a
regular congestion of freight at Penticton. Referring to correspondence he
had looked up in connection with business in his own firm, lit}quoted instances
where there had been delays of several
months in the sending iu of goods from
here to the Boundary Creek district and
to places in Kootenay. When goods
were sent in by way of Sicomous and
Penticton, the distance was 543 miles,
which was about twice the distance of a
direct line. The shipping ot goods by
way of Revelstoke and down to Greenwood, 621 miles, was very round-about.
It was natural, when the question of
mileage was considered, that he should
pay a much higher freight rate than
would be necessary, if the line was more
direct It was on the principle of hauling two miles for one, whi'e from
Winnipeg the haul was across the
prairies and therefore much more direct
than it could be West of the mountains.
"According to the arrangements of the
Grocers' Guild, the Eastern people had
950 miles to come West as their territory

A DIRECT RAILWAY.
Continued from page live.
while Vancouver could go East only 526
miles to Laggin, Calgary was 810 miles
from Winnipeg, 60 even there the territory covered from the latter town would
be larger. In Vancouver, there had
never been any expression against the
Railway Company, in fact the feeling
was entirely with it, and business men
all recognized that their interests, those
of the City and those of the Company,
were identical. In this connection he
supposed it was in the interest of the
Company to build up the trade of the
Interior. A good deal of our freight,
too, went in by United States routes.
Spokane was in close touch with Kootenay and the Boundary and a great deal
of business was done in that quarter.
A direct line to these districts would be
of great advantage to Vancouver; there
could be no doubt about that. This direct line via Hope and Penticton to
(ireenwood would be 307 miles in length
as against 543 via Sicamous, and 021 via
Revelstoke. In a country where railway rates were from five to seven cents
a mile, it was a bad principle to go 200
miles to reach a point of destination 100
miles away."
In reply, the President among other
things said:
"I recognise the desirability, as you
do, of having more direct connection
with Boundary Creek and West Kootenay districts. I can assure you that
the problem is a most serious one. In
talking about distance as the crow flies
between Vancouver and Midway, (ireenwood, Grand Porks and other places,
we are very far out in our estimate of
the real distance by rail. We have most
serious obstacles to overcome. We are
not prepared to say as yet whether there
is any practicable route between Vancouver and the Boundary Creek country.
No doubt the line could be built from
Penticton toMidway, shortening to some
extent the distance, because it would
substitute rail haulage for wagon haul,
but it would not be wise for a railway
Company to proceed with a line to Penticton, or any other point in that
vicinity, without first knowing how they
are to get along in the territory further
West. We have spent vast sums in that
i country. During the past two years we
j have built one of tbe most expensive
; pieces of line that the Company ever
1 undertook. We have opened up territory which I think will be productive
I but from which we can get very little
return for two or three years to come,
and we must now carefully investigate
the territory west of that to see just
what our next movement will be. In
the   meantime I   recognise the   disad
vantages, the inconveniences of the
delays complained of. If the Railway
Company can prevent the delays they
will be prevented, and I think they can.
I cannot account for such delays as these
mentioned here in theshipment of goods.
If there can be anything in the matter
ot rates which in fairness should be adjusted it will be adjusted. (Cheers.) I
am not personally familiar with he
freight rates, with the comparative rates
from Vancouver lo the; Boundary Creek
and the Kootenay districts against the
routes by way of Winnipeg but I shall
make it a point to investigate the subject personally.   (Cheers.)

development, principally on the Golconda. There is a 60-foot shaft, a 50-
loot tunnel, 17 feet of drift, and a number of open cuts. The ore is arsenical
and iron pyrites principally, with some
copper pyrites. The values go as high
as $4(1.

Red Rock.
The War Eagle in (ireenwood camp,
and the Buckhorn in Deadwood are in
separate companies, the principal shareholders of which are associated in all of
the foregoing properties.
On the Buckhorn, in Deadwood
camp, where an incline shall is already
down about 75 I've! in :; big body of ore,
a site has been selected for a vertical
main shaft. This will be live feet by
eight feet in the clear, double compartment, and having 12x12 sawn timbers.
A SO-horse power boiler, compressor,
and three machine drills arc now on the
way in, and the lumber for the shaft
house is already on tbe ground.
A similar plant to that ordered by the
Buckhorn is also expected to arrive
shortly for installation on the War
Eagle, near Plnenix, where there is
another big surface showing of ore. A
��� vertical shaft is to be put down, and
men's quarters, mine offices, shaft
houses, etc., are to be erected without
delay. Timber for the buildings is on
the. ground, and the foundations for the
machinery arc being excavated.
The erection of mine buildings is to be
commenced at once on the Golconda in
Smith's camp. It is intended to drive a
600-foot tunnel to cut Un- ledge at a
depth of about 250 feet,

The Prince of Wales, it is said, is the
heaviest individual ri<k of all the patrons of the life insurance business in
the world. His death would cost English, German, French, and American Phoenix

But it is alleged by persons well informed on insurance matters that not
more than ifl ,0lK),0t)0 of this amount is
for the benelit of  the l'rinc.-'s iiimily.

THE   GREENWOOD   MINER.
NEWS FROM CHESAW
Work of Development Going
on Steadily
On the Review and Wisconsin, and
Other Properties���Interesting Notes
of the Town.
The tunnel is in 400 feet from the portal,
following for the entire distance the
foot-wall of the vein. In tho breast is
fully six feet of quartz that is said to
average $50 per ton. Supt. McEntire is
working six men.
A rich strike has also been made in
the south drift on the second level of the
Crystal Butte. The ore will run over
$200. The mine is employing nineteen
men. The mill is closed down pending
some slight alterations, but will start
within ten days.
Mining has fairly started on the Wisconsin. This is the property that was
floated in Spokane by Percy F. Godcn-
rath, well known throughout the western mining camps as the traveling correspondent of the Spokesman-Review.
Preliminary work started the 9th of last
month, and notwithstanding the inclemency of the weather Supt. Steele
and a force of five men have put up
substantial buildings suitable to accommodate up to eight men. These buildings consist of a bunk house 14x10 feet
in the clear, boarding house 10x20 feet,
blacksmith shop 12x12, stable and outhouses. The buildings are log structures, with shingle roofs and are comfortable and warm. They are situate at
the north end of the Wisconsin claim,
near by to a spring of water that rises
on the claim, and also conveniently
handy to the present workings. Two
open surface cuts have been started.
No. 1 is 20 feet in length and has opened
up a good quartz vein. The ore is blue,
similar in many respects to the Review
ore which it greatly resembles. Samples of the surface rock from this cut
gave values of $18.66 and $24.08 in gold.
The No. 2 cut is 1(1 feet in length, and
has opened up another quartz ledge six
feet in width. Alter further surface
work to properly locate the veins sinking will be in order. The company has
its headquarters in Spokane, and the
board of directors include the following
well known mining men: W. J C.
Wakefield, formerly on the old Le Roi
board, and now vice-president of the
famous Republic mine; Chas. Theis,
president Deer Trail No. 2, and the Bonanza, both dividend paying mines; F.
E. Goodall, who is also connected with
these properties; C. D. Rand, one of
Spokane's leading brokers; II. L. Percy,
a Republic mining operator, and C. E.
Mitchell, secretary of the United States
Marble Co. With the above board the
Wisconsin Mines Inc. should certainly
be well and faithfully managed. The
promoter placed $1,000 in the treasury
for immediate expenditure, and 250,000
shares of stock.
Among the visitors from  Greenwood
in camp are II. L. Honegate, a mining !
engineer from the north of   England,
and James Kerr.    Mr. Kerr is here paying the Review mine employees.
John A. Manly Returns.
John A. Manly returned from an extended trip through southern California,
on Thursday's train of last week, and
was delighted with the comfortable
mode of getting home. When he went
out he had to take the long and tedious
San Poil route from Republic. There is
very little improvement in his health,
but looks somewhat younger with the
loss of his moustache.���Columbia Review.

The town is building up well. The
iiew, three story hotel is Hearing completion, and is to be opened by the end
of the month. McCurdy's block is rap-
idly going up. It will be of frame, two
stories high. The ground lloor will be
occupied by the Chesaw Trading Co.,!
and the second floor for offices. The |
Chesaw Improvement Co. are building a
frame office. Mr. Kean is busy these,
days completing a handsome log residence, which he and his family will occupy. There are openings here for a
druggist, tailor, and shoemaker; all
would do a good business. Chesaw
will, with the opening and development
of the surrounding mines, become a
most substantial centre, and a thoroughly busy community.
The winze sunk from the tunnel  level ���
on the Review is down  70 feet.    It  appears as though it is in the centre  of  a
rich  ore  chute,  as  free gold, visible to
the eye, is  tOUlld  in   the   blue  quartz.

This he did not  consider either fnir to
Mr. Mcintosh or himself.   He withdrew
his offer entirely, and thought Mcintosh's original term* should be considered. The Mayor stated that he told
Mr. Sutherland it would be quite in order and proper for him to submit an
offer. Me considered it would have
been quite improper to say it would not' W"
he considered. The council, however, w
was not bound to deal with it, and as a : (b
matter of fact, it could only deal with x
one offer at a time. j W
An awkward pause took place just be-' $
fore the end of the proceedings. Aid. S
Galloway introduced an amendment to w
the effect that in ease the tramway was | $
not built that the city   would  have  the x
right to purchase the electric light plant | w

at any  tune, at an  advance of 20  per 13)
cent. It passed, all but Aid. Fisher ijg
voting for it. This brought Missrs.
Mcintosh and Collins to their feet, who
declared the deal was off and started to
go. They explained that the money
could not be raised if that were inserted, and in ease of floating debentures it
would stand in the way. The right of
the council to rescind the resolution
was next discussed. A copy of Bouri-
not's book on public meetings was obtained,  and  it  was ascertained that in

nesday evening the Tramway Agreement
was completed and  finally  passed,   after a   long session   which ended  about
12:30   Thursday    morning.    With    the
space  already   occupied   by   reports  of
Council meetings the details of this very j
long agreement  can  not  very   well   be t
given  in this issue.   The  details of  the
main clauses will   be synopsized for  the I
information of the  electors   next   week,
who will vote on the two propositions on

Aid. Calloway moved the final passing
of by-law 2.1 for the regulation of then-
tres, which provides that a license to 1
vend liquors in a theatre or concert hull
maybe granted to a building costing
$10,000.00, and no other except to a
building costing 125,000.00. The Mayor
asked that the matter be carefully considered before taking action. The Solicitor again gave his opinion that the
by-law was bad. He understood, how-,
ever, that a legal linn had already been
retained to take proceedings to quash
the by-law and that an opinion similar
to his had been given. Mr, Shaw, of
Hal let and Shaw, stated that he had advised clients proposing to take action,
that the by-law was bad and would be
quashed. The main reason was, that it
discriminated between persons in the
same line of business. Mr. Pringle siad
he had discussed the matter with severla
legal gentlemen and they agreed that
the by-law was good. In his opinion
the Council had full power to pass
it under the Municipal Act. Upon a
vote being taken Aid. Calloway, Wood,
Beath, and Cameron voted I'm- it and
Aid. Fisher and Sutherltin 1 against.
