together. He kept $100 of the money
and gave $100 to Stubbs, his tent mate,
whom he says was the man who burned
the hotel. He said he had never asked
Stubbs to do the job. How Cameron
knows that Stubbs burned tbe building
did not come out. Stubbs was last seen
at Rosalia, Wash., where Cameron was
arrested.
An application will be made to Judge
Spinks for bail, who can fix the amount
and instruct the magistrate to grant it.
If a speedy trial is asked for the accused will come up before Judge Spinks
this month at Grand Forks, if not, they
will be tried at Nelson or Kamloops.
As the result of the hearing of the
arson case last week, Mullen and Cameron were committed for trial. Cameron
has been taken to Kamloops, and Mullen
to Midway for safe keeping. Mullen
passed through here on the stage on
Tuesday in charge of Constable Dins-
more, of Grand Forks. Nothing particularly new or important was disclosed
by the evidence which in this case was
given in open court. It is stated, however, with some degree of confidence
that sensational developments may be
looked for within the next ten days.
The Columbia Review contains a report from which the following is extracted :
At the second hearing of the incendiary trial J. C McGregor, J. P., of
Niagara assisted Justice Rochusson.
Most of Friday was taken up in the
cross-examination of Royce. A. J. McDonald of Nelson, B. C, E. Miller and J.
S. M. Morrison of Grand Forks appeared
for Mullen.
Royce stated on cross examination
that he had been a wheat buyer in
Washington for the last twenty years.
He told of having been in Rossland and
Greenwood at different times up to the
time of coming to Grcad Forks and
meeting Mullen and Cameron. He and
McDonald had some very hot tilts but
the defense could not swerve him from
his former story which appeared in the
last issue of this paper. He told of how
he schemed to get hold of the "few hundred dollars" but was very emphatic in
stating that he never intended to do the
job.
The next witness was John Wattson
who also stayed by his testimony given
last week.
When court was called again at8 p. m.
Robert Cameron, one of the accused was
brought to the stand and told  how  he
and Royce bad gone out in the woods in
a buggy and experimented with the fuse
and bottle of alcohol, and on the way
back to Grand Forks he said Royce had
. displayed a roll of $250, which he, Royce,
said he had got from Mullen, and offered
him, Cameron, $150  if he  would  burn
the Hotel Columbia.   This, he says, he
absolutely refused to have  anything to
do with, and left the rig at Grand Forks.
He claimed he took the alcohol  to  his
tent, where a man by the name of James
or Jeane Stubbs was camping with him.
He then testified to having met   Mullen
a day or two after the fire,  at the  Yale
hotel where they had a  drink  together
at the bar, and afterwards adjourning to
a side room   where  Mullen  gave him
$200.   Why this money was   paid   him
he could not explain.   He had only one
conversation with Mullen   previous  to
this lime, and was to ask  if  he   knew
where Royce was.   He and Mullen had
several drinks in the   room   when   Mr.
Mauley entered and all three had a drink
Horth Fork of the Kettle River.
Grand Forks  correspondent  writes:
"Confirmation of the recent strikes on
the east fork of the north fork of Kettle
river, about 55 miles distant, has been
received. Harry Donogh, Harry McLaren, of Carson, B. C, and Thomas
Ranee came down Saturday bringing
some fine specimens of gold-copper ore.
They made a number of locations in
Franklin Camp, as the new camp has
been named. Three miles south other
good strikes have been made. The
place has been named McKinley, in honor of the American President. On their
way out they met twenty prospectors,
including two men who crossed the
ranges from Cascade, all bound for the
new gold fit-Ids. The trio returned to
Franklin camp to-day accompanied by
Henry White, the locator of Knob Hill
and Old Ironsides. The prospectors
are elated over their discoveries, and declare that the surface showings surpass
in size the biggest ledges ever found in
the Boundry country.
"From the end of the wagon road,
there is a good pack trail all the way in
with the exception of a rock slide about
seven miles long above Lynch creek.
"Donogh and Ranee located fhe Big
Three, Annex, Doctor and Surprise.
The claims form a group, and adjoin
the Banner and Bullion. They are situated on Franklin mountain three miles
from the east fork, and two miles from
Franklin creek. iThe Annex, Doctor and
Big Three embrace most of the summit,
prospectors. On their way down they
discovered lots of "float". James
Welcher has made some locations in
McKinley camp. Claims have also been
secured by Geo. and Pat Wolfe, who are
partners of John A. Coryell, C. E.
There is abundant grass in the valley,
and the country is described as heavily
timbered. Harry McLaren located a
ranch at the mouth of Blue Joint creek,
and D. B. Cairnes secured one five miles
above a point called Desolation. Nearly
all the timber along the east fork has
just been located by a man named Mc-
Dougal.
OUR  ROSSLAND   LETTER.
Rossland, Sept. 11.
During the past week the people here,
especially those that are in a representative position, found their time and attention very much taxed by the presence of distinguished visitors. The arrival and departure the previous week,
of a number of Canadian editors, were
followed closely by the Guard's Band,
under the renowned leadership of Lieut.
Dan Godfrey, and this event has been
followed by the visit here, for the first
time as a body, of a section of the Canadian Mining Institute.
I find on reference to the journal,
which contains the proceedings- of the
Institute, since the dissolution of the
Federated Canadian Mining Institute
up to Dec. 31, 1898, that the first annual meeting of the Institute, since its reorganization took place in the Windsor
Hotel, Montreal from March 1 to 3 of
the present year.' At that meeting the
council decided to hold. the next meeting of the Institute in this Province in
September, and this visit was in accordance with the decision then made.
The officers of the association are as
follows:
Patron, the Governon-General; president, J. E. Hardman, S. B. M. E.,
Montreal; vice-president, W. A. Carlyle, M. E., late of the British American
corporation; G. M. Dawson, C. M. G,,
director Geological Survey, Ottawa;
John Blue, C. and M. E., Eustis Min-
^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^ ing Co., Cspelton, Que.; Chas. Fergie,
the Surprise having been staked on thefM. E., Intercolonial Coal Co^ Westville,
slope. The showing on the Surprise consists of a vast iron cap on different lead.
It laps the Bullion and Banner.
."The Alpha, located by Harry McLaren, is described as one of the largest
copper-gold ledges the return prospectors
had ever seen. It has a copper-quartz
ledge thirty feet wide, apparently all in
place, and carrying gold values. The
ore seems to be very rich. The Banner,
(located by Frank McFarlane two years
ago) has a lead of forty feet wide with
shipping ore on the surface. Two assessments have been done on the property,
which has a twenty-foot shaft. Surface
values, it is claimed, gave values of from
$12 to $15 per ton. The ore includes
considerable galena. The Bullion,
owned by John Meyers, is on the same
lead. The bottom of an eight-foot shaft
is in ore. Lying west and next to the
Ajax, owned by Slet, James Welcher
and his partners, Vaughn and Mclnnes,
the Carson ranchers.
"Prospectors state that the mineral
belt appears to be three and one half to
four miles wide, with a granite reef on
-either side. It runs nearly due east and
west. On a clear day the Arrow lakes
are visible from the summit. They also
stated that  there is  lots  of  room   for
those that abused him two or three
years ago, because he told the truth.
Rossland is never happy unless it is in
extremes.
The resignation of Mr. Carlyle and
Mr. Tregear from the services of the
Le Roi and British American corporation
were unexpected by those in the Know
Mr. Carlyle is going to Spain to take
charge of the Rio Tinto, but where Mr.
Tregear is going is not mentioned.
THE  LATEST  LOCALS.
The crosscut in the Morrison at the
depth of 220 feet is 66 feet in ore, and
has not yet struck the hanging wall.
The values average $12 in gold, and 3
per cent, in copper.
The tracklayers are seven miles this
side of Grand Forks, or fifteen miles
from Greenwood.
The committee in charge of the Spokane exhibit have about completed their
work, and the mineral specimens will
be shipped on Tuesday next. W. T.
Smith has been appointed commissioner, and will accompany the exhibit to
Spokane, and take charge of it while
there.
The Board of Trade has petitioned the
Government to invest the mining recorders at Midway and Grand Forks with
the powers of Gold Commissioners.
Jerry Cameron returned on Wednesday evening, bringing some splend'd
specimens from the Lottie F. group on
Copper creek, on the Main Fork of the
Kettle River. He reports the most wonderful surface showings yet seen in the
country. An area of 400 by 1,000 feet
has been prospected, and it gives rich
mineral indications everywhere a hole
has been put down.
On the Snowshoe a very big strike
was made in the railway cutting, disclosing 75 feet of ore in a lead which
has been traced for over 700 feet up and
down the hill. The ore assayed $18 in
gold, and 6 per cent, in copper. It is a
very rich chalcopyrites, with a good
deal of copper carbonates on the surface.
BUSINESS NOTES.

treasurer, A. W. Stevenson, C. A., Bank
of Toronto Chambers, Montreal.
The visitors arrived on Friday evening
and were received by a deputation of
the city council, which, I suppose, was
the reception committee. To-day the
visitors were taken in carriages to the
War Eagle and the Le Roi, and were
shown the workings, and were entertained by the Captains of Industry
there, who had a little time to spare to
be sociable. In the evening they were
entertained at the Miners' Hall, where
mutual compliments were tendered.
As there is no technical body here, the
reception of these guests devolved more
or leas on the Mayor and one or two aldermen, who do very much of the public
work.
The party leave for Nelson on Monday. It is to be very much regretted
that a more fitting reception was not extended these visitors, though I have no
doubt that a rough and ready reception
was more acceptable than a state ovation could have been, where formality
takes the place of hospitality.
One gratifying feature to Mr. Hardman
waB the attention paid  him by some of
M. E. Frazee, groceries, etc., who was
bought out by the Greenwood-Clarendon
Co., will open out again in the Wood
block on the corner of Copper and Dead-
wood, opposite the Leland Hotel.
Mrs. J. A. Carpenter will open a
restaurant to-morrow on Government
street nearly opposite the Wood block,
known as the Hoffman.
J. C. Luckenbell, the well known
aseayer, who was burned out in June,
has opened this time on Greenwood
street, in the office of Pa ton & Co. Mr.
Luckenbell will also deal in mining
stocks, and mining properties.
A. McLellan, late of Trail, it is understood has leased the hotel on Government street from Mr. Keough, and will
furnish it first class style.
Rendell & Co., have amalgamated
their wholesale liquor business with the
B. C. Wholesale Liquor Co., Ltd., the
latter taking over the stock in trade of
liquors, etc.
Notice.
The time for the rebate on City   taxes
has been extended to Oct. 1st. 1899.

EHOLT ECHOES.
Work ia being pushed all along the
line of the C. P. R. spur. Pete Hanson
has already finished the first couple of
miles out of Eholt. The finished grade
is in capital condition, positively beautiful, and the engineer and contractor deserve great credit. The view is fine
down the Eholt valley, and up Dead-
man's gulch towards Phoenix.
The other cam ps will soon break up,
and the whole grade will be ready for
the rails by the end of September.
A number of the cuts opened up veins
of mineral. We venture to say that few
roads have as much copper and gold in
their ballast.
At the Winnipeg mine there is the
bustle of harvest. Ore of high grade is
being raised, and the shipping dump is
large. A large quantity will be shipped
as soon as the track is laid.
Compressors are being put in at the
Oro Denoro and Rathmullen mines in
Summit camp, and at the Brooklyn,
Greenwood camp.
The address of letters to Eholt, via
Greenwood, has now gone into history.
A post office has been opened. Letters
addressed to Eholt, B. C. will reach us.
Two weeks ago Eholt went on the
market, already over a hundred lots
have been sold and some 30 buildings
are in course of construction. The prospects of the town are among the brightest in the Boundary. Among the
prominent buyers of lots is th�� Hudson's
Bay Co. This is the only town in the
district in which this Co. has lots,
and it looks well for Eholt. The C. P.
R. main line runs through the place-and
from this point branches run to Phoenix
and Long Lake camps. Surrounding
the town are many promising mines;
the most prominent of these are the B.
C, Emma and Oro Denero. Sam Mc-
Ormond is building a 3-story hotel on
which work is being rushed. Mr.
Munroe and Mr. Kaiser are also putting
up hotels.
Knox and Delaney are building on
Barclay avenue and will put in a stock
of jewelry. A. B. Ripley, druggist, wjll
also occupy a part of this building.
Thompson and McKenzie's building
on Barclay avenue is fast nearing completion, and they will put in a stock of
dry goods as soon as completed.
Otto Leidiger will put in a barbershop
in a couple of weeks.
M. Telo, the hotel man, is erecting
cold storage near the C. P. R. depot.
The building will be 25 by 115 feet.
Teliae "������
H. 0. O'Brien Reddin, of Spokane,
President and General Manager of the
Columbia Telephone & Telegraph Company, has been in the city. He is in
this district a contract with J. P. Graves
for the construction of fifty miles of private telephone lines, connecting the head
offices with the City of Paris, Majestic, Knob Hill and Old Ironsides, and
iEtna mines, the Granby Smelter, and
the smelter dam on the north fork of
Kettle river. Connection will be made
at Eholt with the trunk line of the Columbia Company between Grand Forks
and Greenwood. The company has a
system extending from Rossland to
Camp McKinney, and there are local exchanges at intermediate points. Later
on the line will be extended to Penticton and Vernon. Its American ally is
the.Spokane British Columbia Telephone
Company, which reaches Spokane Republic, and other points in Washington.
Mr. Reddin occupies the same executive
position in the American company,
which, with the Canadian corporation,
owns three hundred and fifty-five miles
of telephone lines.

Greenwood, Sept. 15, 1899.
It having been reported throughout
the country in the press that tho railway would not be built into Greenwood
this winter, and that the terminus
would remain at Columbia for a long
time to coine, the editor of the MlNEB
wrote to the chief superintendent, at
Trail, and to-day received the following
message by wire:
'���Trail, Sept. 14,1899
"To R. E. Gosnell, Greenwood.
���'Referring to your letter, 5th, we are
doing everything possible to reach
Greenwood at earliest {possible date.
We have no intention of stepping work
till we reach Midway. We are as
anxious to get to Greenwood as the people of Greenwood are to have us come,
and are doing everything we know to
complete all projected branches as well
as main line. W. F. Tye."
Daring   Robbery   at   Chesaw,
Washington.
Chesaw, Sept. 15.���(Special to the
Miner.) Last night Mr. Hughes, a
prominent real estate dealer from
Phoenix, B. C. was held up by two highwaymen on the outskirts of Chesaw.
Mr. Hughes arrived in Chesnw about
four o'clock p. m., and meeting numerous friends proceeded in the usual western style to celebrate. Tho celebration
was kept up in town until after twelve
o'clock, when some of his friends undertook to show him "across the creek."
As near as can be learned, he left the
rest of the crowd, and started for his
hotel. When he reached the bridge he
was held up by two men, who relieved
him of $45 in cash, and a gold watch
and chain, and his hat. There is no
clue to the robbers, although there are
several suspicious characters around
town. Chesaw police are investigating,
and it is to be hoped the guilty parties
will be caught and punished. ���J"

An old lady has offered Mr. Balfour
an income of ��5,000 a year if he will

Mr. Balfour doesn't care to accept we
would be glad to Iind a substitute for

A Hartford lawyer tells of a client in
one of the adjoining towns who had a
farm to sell. He had recently sunk a
well on it, and the job cost quite a sum.
Consequently, when he talked of disposing of his property the well caused
him considerable anxiety. "How much
do you ask for the farm?" the lawyer
asked. "Wal, I" tell yer, drawled the
farmer, "I'll sell the dern place for $700
with the well, and I'll let it go for $600
without the well."���Examiner, San
Francisco.
"Now Sammy," began the teacher "I
want you to tell me in which battle
Lord Nelson was killed." Sammy was
in despair, but he proved himself equal
to the emergency. "Did you say Lord
Nelson?" he asked cautiously. "Yes."
"Which battle?" '<Yes;in which battle was he killed?" "Wal," said Sammy, with apparant surprise at such an
easy question, "I 'specs it must er been
his last."���Spare Moments, London.

Boys haven't always a great imagination but most of them have a good deal
of tenacity. A man wishing to make
himself pleasant to the little brother of
his betrothal, told him to wish for something and he would give it to him. "A
box of chocolates," said the boy. "What
else?" aBked the generous lover. "Another box of chocolates." "Oh, but
��� wish for something else; your little
stomach wouldn't hold all those chocolates." "Well, then," answered the'
boy, "another stomach."���Household

imprisonment for entering into relations

A Filipino Fable.���A boy who had a
brindle dog on a string was so tired that
that the dog was on the point of achieving independence, when a member of the
Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to
Animals accosted the boy and chided
him for not giving the dog his freedom,
and finally bought the string for the sum
of 25 cents. The last the boy saw of the
kind-hearted stranger he was kicking
the stuffing out of the dog because it
hung back when he pulled on the string.
���Judge Charles G. Garrison, of New
Jersey.
The good advice of the Laird of Water-
ton, in Aberdeenshire, to a sheep-steal-
er, reads like a very practical joke. He
had himself sent the man to jail; and in
those days sheep-stealing was a capital
offense.   Visiting the prisoner the night
before the trial, he asked him what he
meant to do; to which the prisoner replied that he intended to confess, and to
pray for mercy. "Confess!" said Wat-
ton, "what, man, will ye confess and be
hanged?" Na! na! deny it to my face."
He did so and was acquitted.
The days of the underground cast and
wrought-iron gas, water and steam pipes
are about numbered, says a Boston electrician in the Electrical Review. "Electrolysis is playing high jinks with the
iron pipes in all the large cities, and in
a few years from now the water pipes
will become so weak that they will
burst every time any pressure is put on
them on account of being corroded by
the action of the powerful currents. I
will venture the prediction that seven
years from now nothing will be used for
underground piping of all kinds, except
where high pressures are carried, except
glass.
The theory is advanced by Dr. W. B.
Clark, of Indianapolis, in a paper read
before the state Society of Homeopothic
Physicians, that the recent increase in
the spread of cancer is directly due to
vaccination. Starting with thefact that
cancer is a disease characterized by rapid growth of abnormal cell-structure, he
says: "It takes twenty-one years or
more to make a man, and but three or
four to make a cow. As cancer is a disease characterised by the rapid imposition of cells, I ask you, is it safe to put
rapid-growing cells or protoplasm of a
disgesed animal into the slow-growing
cells of man, as is done in vaccination?
Dr. Clark believes that we are reaping
the harvest of the seed so generally in-
introduced forty to sixty years ago," and
that "deaths from cancer are more numerous in England and Prussia simply
because the pernicious practice of vaccination for smallpox was generally introduced so much earlier there."
Special Says.
Already quite a number of special
days have been chosen by different organizations for'the Spokane Industrial
Exposition in October. The different
secret societies are making a great effort
to outdo each other in grand, remarkable and amusing features, and their exercises in the exposition building. The
special days already chosen are as follows :
Tuesday, Oct. 3, Opening Day. Miss
Jean Goldie Amos, of Whitman County,
Goddess of Plenty
Friday, Oct. 6, Red Men's Day, Po-
chahontas, Miss Flossie Terrell, the
Spokane beauty.
Saturday, Oct. 7, Press day.
Wednesday, Oct. 11, Elks day.
Thursday, Oct. 12, Woodmen of the
World.
Friday, Oct. 13, Odd Fellows day.
Saturday, Oct. 14, United Commercial Travelers day.
Monday, Oct. 16, Eagles day.

Why does tbls good old world of ours stand still
When it should move up closer to God' throne?
Why does the honest man's best impulse chill
So that his fervent heart turns cold as stone?
���'I won't be left 1" That tells the whole sad tale
Of those who stuff brass in the Golden Rule.
Stout is the heart that does not creep and quail
Before the lance of public ridicule.
"I won't be left!" Weak words in which we hide
Our cowardice, our fear to stand alone
Against the crowd, and then, from side to side,
Our infirm purposes arc rudely thrown.
Dare to be "left!"   Let ihe impulsive crowd
Lead for a time, it will return ere night,
To honor one, who will proclaim aloud:
I dare be left, when to be "left" is right.

TO THE CITIZENS OF GREENWOOD
As will be seen in another column, it
is altogether probable that the council will set apart a portion
of the new city building to be forthwith erected, as a public reading room
and library. This will not materially increase the cost as at first proposed, and will'supply a want much felt in
all new towns.
The Minbb has undertaken to open a
subscription list for tbe purpose, and to
ask for donations in money, and books,
aud periodicals, and newspapers ��� in
other words, to see the proposal
through with the help of the citizens
generally. There should be a liberal
and spontaneous response. The Minbb
will supply fifteen or twenty of its exchanges regularly, and will start the list
with $10, Undoubtedly the public departments at Victoria and Ottawa will
suply the official documents free.
The Minbb appeals to the mine owners, and mining companies, to private
citizens, to the firemen, to the Miners'
Union, and particularly to the women
of Greenwood for their co-operation in
this matter. It was, in fact, a woman
who first suggested to the Miner the
idea of taking it up.
Soon the winter will be on. There is
absolutely no place where prospectors,
miners, and the many strangers who
will be with us, can go to spend a quiet
hour's reading. There should be such a
place, and we propose, now that quarters will soon be available, to make a
strong effort to provide one.
What is wanted at the present time
are offers from all interested; and later
on, whan sufficient support has been
guaranteed, a meeting will be called,
and the matter put in definite shape.
THE   POLITICAL   SITUATION.
Politics at Victoria is still a troubled
pool. At the Labor Day celebration at
Nanaimo, the program was of a note
worthy character, from the fact that
Hon. Jos. Martin was the chief speaker,
and in an exceedingly vigorous and
clever speech, he denounced the present
Government without stint or qualification, as the tool of the Finance Minister. Mr. Keith, also a supporter of the
present administration, or rather a
prominent member of the old Opposition party, and for some time a member
of the Legislature, was present. He
was manifestly in opposition, too, and
on the side of the late Attorney-General.
Almost equally significant, regarding
the occasion in question, was the defection from the leadership of Sir Wilfrid
Laurier, of W. W. B. Mclnnes, sometimes called the "Boy Orator" of British
Columbia. In a very fiery speech he declared it his intention to resign, and
contest his seat over again as a protest
against the Dominion Government on
the Chinese question. Since the delivery of his speech it has been denounced
by the News-Advertiser, and the Victoria Times, and other Government papers
as demagogical in the extreme.
On the other hand, the Victoria Globe
and Colonist have been calling on the
Lieutenant-Governor to dismiss the
Semlin administration. Owing to his
refusal to do so, a petition is being circulated calling on the Dominion Government to dismiss the Lieutenant-Governor. It will be seen from all this, and
mucli more that space Will not permit
referring to, that politics is daily becoming more mixed and incomprehensible.
The Mines can predict with certainty
that the Government will be defeated at
the opening of the House. What will
happen then let others say who know.
OUR   GROWING   TIME.
The Globe, of Toronto, has special
correspondence from nearly every town
and city in Ontario printed in black letters, and beaded the "Growing Time."
The object of the Globe is, of course,
political in showing what good times
there are under the Laurier administration ; but the effect is not what is altogether to be desired. The world is experiencing one of its recurrent periods
of prosperity after a long depression, so
long that it almost appeared that the
bottom had dropped out of everything.
It should not be forgotten that bad
times will come again in five years or
so, and that the now crowded industries
will shortly over-produce. When the
good times were on that followed the
National Policy, Sir Leonard Tilley advised Canada to clap on all Bail, because there would be the proverbial seven
years of plenty. It was followed by the
seven years of famine, however, and the
Conservatives are to-day suffering from
the starvation . which ensued. The
Globe's course to-day is practically an invitation to clap on all sail again. The
world never gets wise by experience.
THE   SPOKANE   FAIR.
The management of the Spokane Industrial Exposition has been led to understand that the Boundary Creek district, through the efforts of the citizens
of Greenwood, would be largely represented there. The people of Spokane
are looking to this district to make the
greatest and most remarkable showing
in minerals. Having put our hand to
the plough it will not do to turn back,
or falter in the efforts to live up to the
expectations that have been formed,
more especially as it is within our power
to surpass them. While it is important that this country should be well
represented at the world's Fair, as it
will be, it is still more important that a
specially good exhibit should be made at
Spokane.   The latter place is the home
and centre of Northwestern mining, and
practical mining men. We will be in
keen rivalry with a large number of
camps, and the interest will be intensified accordingly. It is the duty of every mining man,and every mining camp,
and citizens generally, to do all in their
power to make the exhibit a success,
and a huge success at that.
Mayor Mauley at Rossland.
M. L. A. Manley, mayor of Grand
Forks, is at the Allan House on business
and expects to leave to-morrow for
home. He told a Record reporter the
townsite trouble between Grand Forks
and Columbia was one of the dirtiest
townsite quarrels that could be imagined,
and that he was thankful that he was
not connected with either of the companies. With regard to the statement
that had been made about his brother,
John Manley, that a warrant had been
issued for his arrest for conspiracy to
burn down the Columbia hotel, he said
that rumors had been afloat that warrants were out for fifteen citizens of
Grand Forks, but not one of them had
been served as yet. Mr. John Manley
was interested in some property at Republic with Dr. S. A. Manley, another
brother, and had gone to inspect the
work. This was the American Flag, adjoining the Zala M., and he supposed he
was back in Grand Forks by this time.
So far there had been only one witness
examined, and he could not say what
there was in the case, but what evidence
had been produced so far had failed to
implicate John Manley.���The Record,

Report expected retramway   to Phoenix
from Engineer Snaw-$I50 voted for an
exhibit of Bonndary ore at Spokane.
The Council met as usual on Monday
night. There was nothing to occupy the
attention of the aldermen at great length,
and they adjourned earlier than has
been their wont.
Present���The Mayor, Aldermen Sutherland, Wood, Galloway, Beath.
Chief Henton called attention. to the
fact that there were no alleyways in
blocks 7, and 12, and in case of fire
would be greatly handicapped. It was
referred to the City Solicitor.
A number of petitioners asked for consideration of the condition, of Silver
street, and repairs in connection therewith.
.In the matter of the bill of the Kootenay Standard for 25 copies of the annual at $1.00 apiece, on motion of Aid.
Sutherland and Wood, it was decided
not to take them, and to so inform the
manager.
On motion of Aid. Galloway and
Wood, the clerk was instructed to notify L. S. M. Barrett, agent for F. S. Barnard, that the council could not see its
way clear to make any rebate on his
taxes, as applied for.
By-law No- 29, amending the waterworks by-law, providing for the payment
of rates in advance, received its third
reading.
Aid. Sutherland reported that the
plans of Mr. Robinson for the city building had been accepted, and that as soon
as the city engineer had given the grade
excavation would be commenced. The
plans were examined.
Aid. Galloway reported on behalf of
the cemetery committee. The Mayor
urged expedition,
. Aid..Galloway, with reference to the
tramway to Phoenix, said that the committee had seen Mr. Shaw, who had
agreed to make a preliminary survey,
and a transit survey, subsequently. He
was now very busy on the survey, and
the report would probably be submitted
this week.
Dr. Jakes asked to have a rebate on
their property on which the hospital
was located, including the vacant lots.
It would all be used for hospital purposes. A motion to exempt the property
from taxation was passed.
The Mayor appointed a committee,
consisting of Aid. Galloway, Wood, and
Sutherland, to interview the scavenger
about the complaints made. They were
asked to hand in their report at next
meeting, with a view, to placing the
matter on a better basis.
A deputation from the Board of Trade,
consisting of Messrs. Thos. Miller, W.
M. Law, and James Kerr, appeared to
ask the council for a sum to assist in
sending .an exhibit of ore to the Spokane
Exposition. On motion of Aid. Sutherland and Wood, $150 was donated for
the purpose.
Mr. Miller proposed to obtain the private subscriptions of the aldermen as
well, but the Mayor informed him that
the amount had been voted on the understanding that real estate men would
put up the rest of the money required-
The business men of the place had so
many calls on them that they were tired
putting up. It was a very great tax on
them.
This brought Aid. Galloway to his
feet. As one of the real estate men referred to he proposed to suit himself as
to how much he gave. The real estate
men had given their share, and more
than their share, to everything that
came along, and had to pay their biggest
share  of the  taxation  as   well.   The
Mayor remarked that it was nothing to
him whether the amount was raised or
not.   They could suit themselves.
Discussion then turned on the subject
of street grades, and it looked for a short
time as though there would be an "argument." Happily, however, after the
Mayor, who had an ominous gleam in
his eye, and Aid. Galloway had expressed themselves somewhat freely, the
subject was dropped. The Mayor
brought the matter up concerning the
stone wall on the Greenwood street side
of the Rendell block, which was on the
street. He wanted instructions in regard to it. For a sidewalk to grade it
was necessary that a foot of the wall
should be taken off, and the sidewalk
could be laid on top of it. Aid. Galloway remarked that the street committee
had settled weightier matters without
reference to the Council, and he saw no
reason why tbey could  not settle  this.
���'What questions, Aid. Galloway?",
asked the Mayor.
"Oh, the taking down a foot or so off
the streets", was the reply.
" The Mayor assumed an attitude of defence, and said he had heard a great
deal about the matter of grades, and he
wanted to tell them that he had no
apologies to make. The excavation was
according to the profiles of the City
Engineer Shaw, which had not been
changed or altered one iota. Had the
council of last year done its duty there
would have been no such trouble this
year. The council this year had simply acted as a business man would have
done. There were a lot of calamity
howlers in the town that were a disgrace
to any city. He was willing to leave the
matter to the people to judge, aud when
the proper time came was prepared to
lay it fully before them. The present
city engineer had gone by the grade given him, and would not alter it for any
one. The matter then dropped, and the
council adjourned.

face after tunneling on the vein for
30 feet, rich ore was encountered at a
depth of about 12 feet from the tunnel
floor. Mr. Stonechest reports three
assays of $84, $001 and $073, and says
there is a streak of six or eight inches
which shows values of over $000, while
the $84 was an average assay across the
foot of the winze.
Emery Ruckley, of Spokane, last week
covered the distance between Spokane

pyrrhotite, and chalcopyrite, in nppnr-
antly unlimited in extent. The copper
values are increasing rapidly with development.
Bonnets for Greenwood.
The representative of tho Cascade
Record, who was in Greenwood last
week, writes as follows in his paper:
"Greenwood is undoubtedly the most
important town in the Boundry creek
country, and its citizens have sublime
faith in its continued supremacy. The
definite location of the Mother Lode
smelter close to the town will be of great
benefit to the place, and survevs have
already begun for the purpose of starting
work under Paul Johnson, the superintendent. There is an evidence of
solidarity and permanence about Greenwood that is pleasing to the casual
visitor. Surrounded as it is by many
rich milling camps, with large reduction
works at its doors, it cannot fall to hold
its own for years to come, and tbe laith
of its people in its future seems well
grounded." THEGREENW00D   MINER.

A Foot Race.
Silver street was enlivened on Saturday   afternoon   with   a crowd,  whose
object was to see a foot race between
W.   Ragsdale,  of Colville, and P. G.
I McLeod, of Greenwood, for $500 a side,
fifty yards.
I In due time the two started, and made
a good race, with McLeod, it was generally thought, the winner; but it was declared a tie, and as McLeod refused to
run over again, all bete were drawn.
Installing: a Hew Official.
On Monday evening, Messrs. W. Gill,
Inspector of Inland Revenue, and J. E.
Miller, Collector for the Mainland,
arrived in Greenwood, accompanied by
H, McCutcheon, who succeeds A. K.
Stuart in the office of Inland Revenue,
and to open an office as local collector of
customs. On Tuesday they visited the
local breweries, bade the late incumbent
an official good bye, installed his successor in office, and left on the afternoon
stage for Penticton.
Hew City Buildings.
The pians prepared by W. Robinson,
architect, for the new municipal buildings of Greeawood, have been completed, and were presented to the council
on Monday night. The .buildings will
be located on the corner of Greenwood
and Skylark streets, and will have surface dimensions of 47x60 feet, to cost
completed about $4,000. Excavations
have already begun, and the work will
be performed by day labor.
The first floor will be occupied on one
side as a fire department, with horses
and hose wagons, etc., the arragemen'-.s
being thoroughly modern. The other
side will be occupied as a police department, with four cells, and offices for the
Chief of Police, and the city clerk. On
the second floor there will be the sleeping apartments of the firemen, the
chief's private apartments, two rooms,
and the council chamber. It is proposed
to divide the latter and provide a public
reading room. In all probability this
will be arranged with folding doors, so
that the whole space may be used for
public meetings, if necessary. A view
of the elevation shows it to be as ornate
as is consistent with the cost.. There
will be hose and bell towers in connection.
The Canadian Mining: Institute.
On Saturday the secretary of the Canadian Mining Institute, which has had
sessions at Rossland and Nelson, telephoned the following message to Greenwood :
"Mining Institute regrets to find it
impossible to visit Boundary at present.
Please express regrets to your members.
Will write explanatton first opportunity."
It will be remembered that the invitation to the members of the Institute
had been accepted, and arrangements
were made by the Board of Trade of
Greenwood to meet them at Grand
Forks, where they were to have banqueted, and drive them to the various
comps, tendering them a smoking concert at the Club.

THE. GREENWOOD  MINER.
MINOR  MEDITATIONS.
The Nelson Economist complains that
the order it gave for cover paper has
gone astray, and that it has to use colored print out of stock. There is this
advantage about the Economist's dilemma :   It is sure to be red.
Once in a long while a newspaperman
is in luck. Walter C. Clarke, of the
Kamloops Standard, has fallen heir to
��10,000. The Miner pauses until it has
an opportunity to witness the surprise
of the financier of the New Denver
Ledge.
An item is going the rounds of the
news columns of the Canadian as well as
of the American papers, to the effect
that the Hon. David Mills, Minister of
Justice, is the son of an American citizen, a native of New York State, and
that he himself is a graduate of the
University of Michigan. The Hon.
David Mills is the son of a United Empire Loyalist, who came to Palmyra,
Ont., via the Maritime Provinces, and
is descended from that old Puritan
stock that left England in the Mayflower. The old Mills' hpmestead is one of
the oldest on old Talbot street road, in
the County of Kent, Ont. The present
Minister of Justice was born, and raised
there, taught school, and was for many
years inspector. It is true that he took
a course in the Michigan University,
but regarding his nativity as a Canadian, there can be no doubt. Nor is
there any man in Canada concerning
whom Canadians have greater reason to
be proud.
This is worth bearing in mind. By
keeping apples in a cellar in such a way
that they do not touch each other, just
as eggs are packed, and kept at the
same temperature, they can be preserved
in good order for an indifinite length of
time. It is also stated that eggs may be
kept perfectly fresh for months by placing them where pure, cold water is allowed constantly to run over them.
The Vancouver Province has published a summer number, containing
a large number of illustrations. It is devoted largely to the resources and attractions of British Columbia. It gives
evidence of enterprise throughout, business as well as literary.
In the September number of the Mining Record, there is an illustrated article by Frederic Keffer, M. E., on the
Mother Lode. Needless to say it is of
the most authentic character.
The well-known, and not less popular
executive agent of the C. P. R. in this
Province, has been very ill at Rossland,
suffering from blood piosoning. The
trouble arose from the after effects of
tooth-pulling. When it comes to a ques-
titn of "pull" Geo. McL is a power, but
it appears that when the process is reversed, it does not agree with him. His
friends, however, are pleased to learn of
his recovery.
The Rossland Miner announces that
W. A. Carlyle, general superintendent
of the British America corporation, has
resigned, and accepted the management
of the Rio Tinto mine, Spain, at a salary of not less than $25,000 a year. The
Rio Tinto is situated in the Province of
Auelva in the south of Spain, and employs 14,000 men. It is one of the oldest known copper mines, having been
producing over 2,000 years ago. It is
said to have a lead 1,000 feet wide, and
to yield 2.8 per cent, only in copper.
Last year it produced 1,500,000 tons of
ore, and shipped 800,000 tons, paying
dividends of $4,500,000.
The finding of Dreyfus guilty, and his
subsequent sentencing to ten years imprisonment, came as a surprise to the
world. Morethan thatitis contrary to the
sympathies of the whole civilized world
outside of France itself. Latterly, it
was thought that he would be found
guilty, and sentenced to a term not exceeding that already served, which has
in all conscience been severe enough;
and in that way satisfy to some extent
the demands of both sides. Instead of
that, Dreyfus must be publicly degraded a second time, and confined for ten
years in a fortress on the continental
territory of the Republic."
Mr. Jaffray'a View* of Greenwood.
In a long interview in the Globe, regarding British Columbia, Mr. Jaffray
said about this section:
"We went to Pentiction, and then to
Camp McKinney. Cariboo is the mine,
which, being the most developed, is the
pioperty which has attracted the attention of the public to the district. We
found its condition, and its prospects
highly satisfactory, and there is no
doubt that this will be a most successful camp. Republic camp is in a
prosperous condition. The Republic
mine is one of the best for the stockholders that I have seen. The city of
Greenwood showed great signs of activity, and there is no question but that,
surrounded by rich properties as it is,
it will become a great centre. We
passed through Midway, which, having
a waterway in the Kettle River, and
plenty of room, may yet be a very valuable ore smelting town. The ledges around
Greenwood are wide and strong, in fact
there seems to be no limit to the quantity of the ore that can be
produced out of that district. We inspected the Mother Lode, and the King
Solomon, and a number of others, and
also visited the Copper Camp, B. C,
and the Emma. The width of the veins
and the quantity of the ore here were
also altogether beyond our expectations.
We were taken over the Brooklyn, Stem-
winder, Idaho, and Rawhide, and the
other properties of the Dominion Copper Company. Some of them are well
developed enough to prove that they
will be very profitable properties. The
condition of the Knob Hill, Ironsides,
and Virginia was also most promising,
and the fact of the large smelter being
erected in Grand Forks is the best evidence of the faith that the owners of the
properties have in them."
Coming: to Kootenay.
Sir Mackenzie Bowell, ex-premier, of
Canada, is on his way to the Kootenays
accompanied by his daughter Mrs, McCarthy, and his granchildren Miss McCarthy and Mrs. Charles Holten. Sir
Mackenzie will spend a day or two at
the coast before he comes to this district where he intends to spend some
weeks.

THE   OLD   MINERS.
A Beautiful Tribute  to the Pioneers In the
Mining: West
Every old miner ia not a rich man,
nor is every rich miner an old one.
Many, very many, who' joined in blazing trails to the Eldoradoa in tbe far
west, who bave built their humble log
cabins where prosperous towns or cities
have long since displaced them, who set
their stakes, and spent months or yeare
to develop prospects into paying mines,
whose hopes of striking wealth ended
not in fruition, whose tenacity of purpose, and bulldog bangonativeness led
them, over and over again, to venture
their time, their labor, their all in
other equally disasterous ventures, have
either passed "over the range" to prospect for home "not made with hands,
eternal in the heavens," or are now
with whitened locks or furrowed cheeks,
with bent forms and faltering steps, patiently waiting for the summons to lay
aside their picks, pans and shovels, and
drills, and spoons, and hammers, and go
up higher, where short water, and barren rock are known no more forever.
We say there are many old miners
waiting to join their comrades, who
have gone to find a bonanza in the
Great Beyond, and who leave the world
as they entered it, with nothing to claim
save the air they breathed. But they
have done a good work, they lived not
in vain. Fifty years ago they crossed the
Missouri river, and entered the "Great
American Desert," into an almost unknown country, bearing their lives in
their hands, meeting and overcoming
obstacles and dangers of which they
knew not, frightening or driving the
savages of the plains from their pathway, and the less savage animals from
their lairs, but defying all, followed the
setting sun on its course to the golden
sands of the Pacific, where they founded an empire in domain, a storehouse
abounding in gold. But they builded
better than they knew. They opened
the way for olhers to follow.
In blazing the trail to tbe Pacific they
passed over great stretches of plains and
mountains, out of which Nebraska, Colorado, Idaho, Montana and Nevada have
been carved each treasure vault from
which countless millions have been emptied into the busy world's channels of
trade, creating millionaires and multimillionaires, while the trail blazers
themselves were awakening echoes in
camps that added more millions to the
wealth of countries and their people.
All hail to the old miner! He opened
the gates through which the more fortunate passed to wealth. He uncomplainingly endured the privations and
hardships which are ever the band-
maids of the pioneer. His youth disappeared in his combats with an adverse
fortune. Middle-at^e claimed him before he finished his battle, and old age
has seized him. Physically broken
down, but rejoicing, he has lived to see
an empire in the west, "all of which he
saw and part of which he was." Envy
possessed not the old miner's soul. It
will be a abort time only when the busy,
hustling, bustling throng around him,
grasping for the "almighty dollar," will
also travel the road leading to the unknown hereafter, which he is prepared
to take when the signal is given to
"strike camp." ��� Western Mining

THE GREENWOOD   MINER.
BOARD   OF   TRADE.
Spsclal   meeting held on Friday evening, r-
Important business transacted.
A special general meeting of the Board
of Trade was held on Friday evening in
Rendell's Hall, at which there was a
large attendance.
W. M. Law and Mayor Hardy reported on the conference that had been held
with Messrs. Crowhurst and McMillan,
the gentlemen who had baen in the city
looking for a site for a foundry and machine shops. A fair proposition had
been made to them, but after agreeing to
meet the committee later on they declared it off as they had, they claimed,
to consult their principals in the matter.
Subsequently it was announced that
they had located in Columbia.
The following new members were proposed and elected: Messrs. W. T.
Smith, F. Keffer, J. H. McFurlane, and
A. Fisher.
On motion of Messrs. Cameron and
Sutherland the members present went
into committee of the whole to consider
the by-laws that had been framed by a
committee appointed for. the purpose,
James Kerr occupying the chair.
The by-laws were adopted clause by
clause and finally passed. The initiation
fee was fixed at $10 and the regularly
quarterly dues at $2.50.
A tramway to Phoenix was then discussed. C. S. Galloway, the president,
explained the steps that had already
been taken by the council to secure a
preliminary survey, and an estimate of
cost. Some parties were already negotiating in the direction of operating the
tramway, and he had no doubt if the
terms could be satisfactorly arranged,
that the tramway would be built shortly.
Mayor Hardy thought that there
would be no difficulty bo far as the citizens were concerned in passing any
reasonable by-law in support of the
scheme. So far as the city franchise
was concerned, which had been referred
to, he was in favor of the city retaining
it. After the expression of other views
on the subject it was allowed to drop
without any definite aution, as the project had not yet assumed a sufficiently
definite stage. ,:;���
The next subject taken up was the
representation of Boundary Creek minerals at the Spokane Exposition. The
president read a letter he had received
from the secretary, and urged that immediate action be taken to have the district well represented. The matter of
having suitable literature regarding the
city and district was also discussed and
decided in the affirmative.
After considerable debate it was
moved and carried that a committee,
consisting of Messrs. W. M Law, Thos.
Miller, and Jas. Kerr, be appointed to
raise subscriptions to the amount of
$350, for the purpose of sending a commissioner with an exhibit to the Spokane fair, the amount in question to
cover all expenses.
W. T. Smith was then appointed to
take the exhibit in charge, he agreeing
to collect, transport, attend to at Spokane, and do everything else necessary
in connection therewith for the amount
mentioned.
The secretary was authorized to collect subscriptions, and pay all outstanding bills, and the board adjourned.
A Tramway for the Gold Bag.
The Gold Bug is shipping a carload of
ore to the Trail smelter, and arrangements have been made for the erection
of an aerial tramway for permanent
shipments. The right of way h already
graded, and the wire and lower station
will be put in place as soon as possible.
When the 100-foot level is reached
drifting will be begun.

Greenwood with the idea of "pulling
out" his companies on account of the
two fires this summer, but departed as
enthusiastic as be was previously pessimistic. The same remarks apply to
Mr. Dickenson.
E. W. Paisley, Chilliwack, representing the Toronto World, has been in the
city this week. He reports having had
good success all along the line.
If tbe present pace keeps up Greenwood will soon have hotels "to burn."
CHESAW  DOINGS.
Special Correspondence Miner.
Prof. Philip Odum of Houghton,
Mich., graduate of the University of
Virginia, and holder of a first grade certificate, has been engaged to teach
school at Chesaw, and will open school
Sept. 23rd. There are already thirty
scholars, and many more will be added
from the crowds coming in. A month
ago there was only eight or ten children
iu the district, but as the population increased, the citizens held a meeting, put
up a due school building, 40x60, all by
subscription, and at once sent for a
teacher, and sent in an application for
the appointment of a board of directors.
J. W. Terrell has let the contract for
a shaft house, boarding and bunk house,
and 50 feet of work at tbe War Eagle.
They have now crosscut the ledge over
32 feet, and have not yet reached the
foot wall. Tbe ore still remains of the
same character, and looks like the Republic. Late assays run from $34 to $146
iu gold and silver.
The Jim Hill, situated in the centre
of the town of Chesaw, is now 58 feet
deep. They have crosscut the ledge
fourteen feet, and have not yet reached
the foot wall. Assays taken from every
foot so far have averaged $31.34 in gold
and silver
The Reno, owned by D. A. Holbrook
& Co., ou which the old town is situat-
uated, has a large force of men at work
under the management of Wm. Fowler,
who is superintendent. They are sinking on the ledge, and are all in ore.
The surface shows an iron capping 42
feet wide. At a depth of twenty feet
they are in quartz, resembling the Review, and carrying values of from $9.00
to $41 in gold.
Two new blacksmith shops have been
erected in the past week, and several
new dwellings have gone up on Hol
brook, Kean & Co's. addition, that has
recently been surveyed into lots.
Holbrook, Kean & Co., of Greenwood,
have opened a lumber yard, and keep
teams constantly hauling in lumber,
lath and shingles, which are put into
buildings as fast as they can g >\ it on
the ground. Mr. Fisher, of Greenwood,
ia building a saw mill at Rock Creek to
supply the Chesaw trade, and expects
to be running in a week. Messrs. Gur-
ney and McPherson have a shingle factory running at Rock Creek, and Mr.
Kean has contracted for their entire
output for the Chesaw trade.
McDonald's stage is loaded every
night with passengers, and Dan will
have to put on more rigs to keep up
with the procession.
Chesaw is all excited over the big
strike on the Independence mine, one-
half mile south of town. This property
is owned by Messrs. Lynch and Murphy, both experienced miners. Three
weeks ago they offered a quarter interest in the group for $100. They have
sunk a shaft 58 feet deep, and Monday
came into a body of ore different from
anything yet found in this camp. They
were sinking on the foot wall, when
they found this ore. They crosscut to
determine the width of it, and now have
eight feet of solid ore, and no sign of the
other wall. From seven assays taken
Tuesday across this eight feet, the average is $193.14 in gold, and $47.20 in silver. This beats anything yet discovered
in camp, and great excitement prevails.
Town property as a consequence has
gone up, and Chesaw lots are selling at
a premium. There is a lumber famine
in town, and enough cannot be had to
supply the demand.
The government staff of allotment
agents and assistants, Messrs. W. E.
and J. E. Casson, J. E. Welch, Wm.
Sprage, and J. M. Hall, are at Chesaw
making the final allotment to the Indians. When this is done they have settled nearly all the Indian claims, and
then the reservation will be thrown open
for settlement. For many miles surrounding Chesaw there are the finest
farming and stock lands to be found,
and with the thousands of settlers that
will rush in and take up land, do their
improvements, buy machinery, supplies,
etc., Chesaw will boom. The rush to
Oklahoma, and the Cherokee strip, the
world-famous stampede, will be outdone
here. There is better land, better
water, timber, etc., to say nothing of
the rich mineral resources, the develop
ment of which will create a market for
their supplies. The climate, too, is the
finest on the Pacific coast. The district
will fill up with husky settlers and miners in the next few months. Greenwood being the nearest wholesale point,
and the railroad centre, the nearest
point where we can get supplies, will
naturally obtain a great share of this
immense trade, and the settling- up of
the Colville reservation will mean thousands of dollars to the merchants and
business men of Greenwood.
Liberal-Conservative Association.
A meeting of the Liberal-Conservatives of Greenwood and District, will be held in Rendell'a hall
on Wednesday evening, Sept. -27,
for the purpose of appointing delegates to attend the annual meeting
of the Liberal-Conservative Union
at New Westminster, Oct. 5, and
for other purposes. All Liberal-
Conservatives are cordially invited
to attend. Young men are particularly requested to be present.
