A Lsrfe limber of Prospector, in the Camp���
Development Being Done.
Frank Chadler and Cap Shields came

in the chair.
Communications were read from Dr.
Schon, ,1. M. Cropley and Greenwood
Clarendon Co.
The Greenwood Clarendon Co. asked

under the balcony of the hotel, while
said balcony was being repaired. Decided that the nature of the supports
put under the balcony be submitted to
engineer, and if satisfactory the request
of the Clarendon Co. be granted.
J. M. Cropley's letter calling the at-
tention of the council to the fact that
some person had dumped refuse on the
cemetery grounds. This matter was referred to the scavenger committee.

for a source ot supplyr and further' de*
dares that iio money shall be expended
iu connection with tho I.ind creek
scheme unless a sufficient supply has
been found by actual measurement taken during the dry season of the.year."
TWO VETERAN JOURNALISTS.
At the Windsor are registered a couple
of patriarchicitl journalists in the persons of Messrs. James Innes, ex-M. 1*.
for South Wellington, Ont., and for 3li
years editor and joint proprietor of the
Guelph Mercury, and stilla bale, hearty,
happy gentleman; and J, 0, McLagan,
founder and conductor of the Vancouver
World. Mr. McLagan started his
career as a journalist in 185:1 and is still
in active harness, notwithstanding that
his health of late has become somewhat
impaired. Thirty-eight years ago
these gentlemen assumed control of the
Guelph Mercury, which has ever sinee
been regarded as the best couutry newspaper property in Ontario. For tbe
lengthened period of 14 years Mr. Inne
represented South Wellington in the
commons, where he was held in high
esteem by all parties. He is on bis way
east, having visited the coast on business and pleasure. This is his first visit
to Boundary and the southern section of
the province. He expresses himself as
charmed with the scenery observed
since leaving Vancouver and the spirit
of go and enterprise visible on all sides.
Of Greenwood he had heard much, but
he did not expect to see such a well-
built city. From reports read by him of
the mines and the oamps tributary to
Greenwood he and others have no doubt
as to the future of the capital of the
Boundary country. Here he met some
old-time acquaintances who are pleased
to see an old friend.
Mr. McLagan, on being asked his
views on the political situation at Victoria, expressed himself as being pleased
with the selection of Sir Henri Joly de
Lotbineere as our next lieutenant-governor. He naturally preferred that a
western man should be given the position, but of all outsiders none, in his
estimation, would fill the position with
such acceptance to the people as Sir
Henri, who has had lengthened experience and is possessed of a courteous-
ness and affability which eminently fit
him for the discharge of the onerous
duties now devolving upon him.
Concerning the Dunsmuir government
he had to say that it would have been
preferable to have made it a straight
Conservative cabinet, as with the exception of Mr. Wells, every minister was of
that political bias. That it is an able,
capable government cannot be disputed.
As now constituted it it consists of Hon.
James Dunsniuir, premier aud president
of tbe council; Hon. J. H. Turner,
minister ot finance; Hon. D. M Eberts,
attorney-general; Hon. Richard Mc-
Bride, minister of mines; Hon W. C.
Wells, chief commissioner of lands and
works; Hon. J. D. Prentice, provincial
secretary and minister of education. It
is understood, said Mr. McLagan, that
after the approaching session is over a
reconstruction of the cabinet will take
place. Hon. Mr. Turner mav in all
probability retire from public life, accepting the position of agent general iu
London. The ministers' by-elections
will take place immediately. What
course the opposition will pursue is not
yet known, although it is understood
that Hon. Joseph Martin has promised
his support to the government fn passing the estimates and such other legislation us ia an absolute necessity, but
ho contentious legislation will be dealt
with
The desire of all is that the uncertain
conditions prevailing for the last two
years in our policial affairs should cease
and business rosume its former status.
The interior, more than any otlier section of the province, would be benefitted
by Biich a change, and the activity of
formei days be again observed everywhere. Trade on the coast is capable of
considerable improvement, and now that
the political uncertainties aro believed
to be ended, hopefulness is expressed
for tne revival of tho good times which
the business men experienced some
months ago.
There has been more rain than usual
on the coiiBt and, while nothing serious,
in the way of damages by high water
has taken place, yet the low lands were
inundated and if the wet weather continued, it was feared some damage
would be sustained.
This afternoon those gentlemen are
being driven to Borne of the mines adjacent to the city by Mr. Duncan Koss
and Dr. Mathison, old time acquaintances and friends, in order to impart to
them some conception of the latent hidden wealth in the bosom of our mountains. They will remain in thecity until
to-morrow, when they leave for Kossland. Trail, Nelson and Femie.
at Sea," a quartette was well rendered.
"Queen Victoria" was a pleasing recitation given by Annie Christie. Next
came a recitation by six little ones, entitled "Little Helpers," followed by a
chorus by the choir, "Dream On." Mrs.
McKay closed the program by a selected
recitation, "A Visit to Grandma."
Then came the most interesting part
of the evening, the refreshments.
Words cannot describe the scene that
was enacted. The babel of voices, clatter of dishes and din of other noises that
can only be produced at a Methodist
social was somewhat confusing. Suffice
it to say that all who waited long enough
got their share of the good things.
Much credit is due to the ladies on tbe
refreshment committees, and to Mrs.
McKay for her successful training of the
little ones. Rev. Baldersone's hustling
was admired by all.
K. of P. Election.
At Wednesday night's regular meeting of Greenwood Lodge No. 20, the following officers were elected for tbe on-
suing term : F. T. Abbott, C. C.; J. H.
Macfarlane, V'.C.; Alvin ArmBtroin,P.;

ger, M.atA.; James Cameron, I. G.;
Chas. R. Pittock, O. G. The installation will be held on the evening of July
4th. The lodge has a membership of
over forty. Tho charter will remain
ope-until three months from tho time
of institution, July llth, when the present rates for degrees will be much higher. Tlie local lodge forwarded $30 for
relief of Sandon suffererB a short time
ago. This amount was raised by subscription among the members.
LOCALS AND PERSONALS.
Mrs. A. Birnie of Vernon is visiting
her daughter, Mrs. F'orbes M. Kit by of
Greenwood.
Mrs. R. M. McEntire and Miss McEntire returned the past week from a
visit to Seattle.
Lieutenant-Governor Mclnnes has
been dismissed by the Laurier government, and Sir Henri Joli appointed.
The votojyosterday on the loan by law
to raise $20,000 for street improvements
was carried by a vote of 109 to 28.
Ralph Smailes returned from Victoria
on Wednesday, where he bad been attending the meeting of the Grand Lodge
of Odd Fellows.
Preparations are about complete for
Greenwood's celebration on the 29th and
30th inst. About $2,000 will be expanded in prizes, for horse and bicycle
racing, athletic sports, hose races and
other events. All the committees are
working hard to make the celebration
one of the best ever held in  the interior
of Britisli Columbia.
The bylaw to annex Anaconda to Greenwood was defeated yesterday by a vote
0) 08 to 43. Although the vote was not
a large one, considerable interest was
taken in the question, and teams were
out all day in the endeavor to get votes
to the poll. The principal arguments
used against annexation was that it
would result in increased expenditures
without adequate returns, and that the
money could be used to better advantage
in draining what is known locally as the
"swamp."   The swampers won tbe day,
Strawberry Festival.
A large number, mostly of the fair sex,
attended the Strawberry Festival held
at the Methodist church last evening,
to raise funds for the church debt.
The program, given mainly by children, waB excellent. The first number
was a chorus by all the children, which
won much applause. Master George
Campbell gave a good recitation, ''Young I and Anaconda will be compelled to stay
Canada was there."    "The Minute Gun ' out in the cold for some time to come. ��
THE   GREENWOOD   MINER
Friday, June 22, 1900.
CONVENTION CLOSES
Cabinet to he Reconstructed Alter the Session.
-Eieht-Boir law Approved.
Vancouver, 1). 0., June 19.���(Special.)
���The so-lulled opposition convention
closed harmoniously to-night, The
mainland gave in, temporarily at least,
to the Vancouver Island delegation, this
being the only way in which, as one
member put it, ex-Premier Martin could
be effectually extinguished. The convention unanimously agreed to support
Premien Dunsniuir aud his government
in passing all necessary legislation at
the coming session, with the understanding that there be a thorough reconstruction of the cabinet after the
session, which takes place early in July.
This will be a very short one, lasting
only about, ten days, for the voting of
supplies, nnd no contentious hills are to
be brought forward. This leaves the
millionaire coal king practically master
ol the situation.
There was a fear this afternoon that
Governor Mclnnes, who hud buen asked
to resign, would dismiss the ministers
who had heen unfaithful to him in asking the Goveri.ior-t-ienenil of Canada for
his dismissal, and thus play into Joe
.Martin's hands by precipitating anotner
serious situation. Just before the adjournment un important resolution was
passed, to the effect that the members
of the legislature there ussem.hiedagreed
to the principle iif the eight-hour law
t In-re was.no arrangement, although il
was mooted that Fiiiurlce Minister Turner and Attorney-General Eberts should
resign us a necessary preface to the reconstruction of the cabinet. Mayor
Gardeu of Vancouver may be nominated
premier under the new conditions.
The convention of the members of the
legislature who are opposed lo the lute
Mart iii administration closed this afternoon. Practically beyond passing a resolution condemning Lieutenant-Governor .Mclnnes a'.d another for increasing tiiu restrictions on Chinese und Japanese .immigration, little was accomplish*
oil o\ thu two days'session. It was decided to support the new Dunsmilir government during the next session in
passing estimates und any necessary
legislation of u non contentious character Then there is to he a reconstruct ion
of the cabinet so as to meet the views of
all purls uf the province, the present
I'or.-oiihol not being considered favorably
b)' UK.lis  III the lllellllli I's,

A inn-s mooting was held in the City
hull Wednesday evening for the purpose
of discussing the annexation of Anaconda
to the city. The meeting was of a similar nature to all public meetings held
iu the past eighteen mouths to discuss
municipal matters. Those opposed to
tho present city administration were antagonistic to annexation, und those supporting the Unrdy council favoring the
measure. The whole discussion appeared to he for the purpose of indulg-
i;i_- in personalities. About the only
way to settle the municipal muddle is
for the council to resign, und the ratepayers ask the editor of ihe Times to appoint a council that he thinks will conduct the business of the city in a manner satisfactory to himself. The ratepayers have twice elected the Hardy
administration, and neither council has
been satisfactory to the editor of the
Times and his following. It is time that
some arrangement should be made to
suit the wishes of the minority. The
majority of tbe electors have by their
votes at two elections endeavored to give
the city a suitable council. The only
course left is to have a special act passed
by the legislature empowering the editor
of the Times to appoint a suitable mayor
and council, the appointments to he
made from ineinders of the Greenwood
Club.
At  Wednesday   night's   meeting,   instead of discussing the  Anaconda question, the two factions took up the Bonn- I
dury   creek ditch,   und   personalities.
And the ditch and personalities occupied j
the attention of the speakers until near- j
ly twelve o'clock, when the  majority of
the audience became disgusted und went
home,    leaving  the  two  tactions   still
worrying at  the rag.     It  is  presumed
the two factions also  went  home when j
they no longer hud an audience to listen
to them.
The Senate and Trades Unions.
The criminal code now before the
parliament ol Canada now contains a
section forbidding combines in trade,
The senate has struck out an exception
made In favor of trades unions; " Nothing in this section shall lie construed to
apply to combinations of workmen or
employees for their own reasonable protection us such workmen or employees."
It would he interesting to know whether
the senators imagine that at this stage
in tho history of the world they can render trades unions illegal. The mutter
has been fought over iu England us well
us in Canada, and decided in fuvor of
trades unions; und the senate might as
well try to revive ihe laws against witchcraft as the laws against these organizations. There is a Canadian statute
recognizing and regulating them, and
those who wanted laws forbidding trusts
and combines hud not the slightest intention iif abolishing trades unions.
The senate III this case has far exceeded |ts legitimate power of revising
legislation. It is endeavoring, under
rover ol" timondiii}' a ptiitnte rovieing tho
criminal code, to revive u set of obsolete
laws against trades unions. All the talk
about refusing to pander to the labor
sentiment is rubbish. The legalization
of trades unions is not the dream of a
visionacy reformer; it is the nettled law
of the hind, here, us in England. All
the senate can do is to create some temporary confusion. The laws against
truiles unions will not be revived; even
if through unite technicality they should
be restored to shadowy existence, nobody
will enforce them, and governments
would be quite justified in placing every
possible obstacle in Ihe way of their
i nforcenii'iit.
THE jj IN AL COUNT.

The final count of the ballots deposited by the electors of this constituency
iu the recent election was completed

Although the Pioneer has received
many commendations for its unbiased
and straightforward course during the
recent election contest, as well as for its
fair reports of meetings held here, this
paper takes no special credit to itself on
that account. No self-respecting journal
would take any other course. Possibly
the policy of the  Pioneer stands  out  in
bolder relief because of the apparent, j
bnuglit-at-a-price policy pursued by some,
other prominent papers in the riding.��� ,

A Correction.
Mr. D. G. Monro of Phoenix called at
this office, Wednesday last, and asked
that the following item which appeared
in the Miner of the 8th inst. be corrected :
"D. G. Monro of Phoenix was in town
Monday and says that town will go solidly for Hon. Smith Curtis, in spite of
the threats of the mining companies."
It appears; that Mr. Monro was an
employe of the Old Ironsides company
previous to the election. He also was a
strong supporter of Mr. Curtis. After
the election he was discharged. Why
the officials of the Old Ironsides should
take the item us referring to that company we do not know. It may he that
"The wicked flee when no man pur-
sueth," in this case. It is to be regretted that the officials of the Old Ironsides company have taken such harsh
measures after a denial by Mr. Monro,
as all fair-ininiled persons will look upon their action as n punishment of Mr.
Monro (or his support of Smith Curtis.
The discharge of Mr. Monro will undoubtedly convince unprejudiced persons that the action of the company was
intended as a warning to employes to
vote  "right" at future elections.
Suit For Half a Million.
The suit of L. F. Williams vs. the
British American Corporation will come
lip for trial before a jury in the Supreme
court on Tuesday next at Victoria. This
suit involves about $230,000. The suit
grew out of the purchase of the Le Roi
by the British American Corporation. It
is alleged that during the negotiations
for the purchase of the mine by Hon. C.
II. Mackintosh the latter carried on the
deal principally with Col. I. N. Peyton,
who represented 200.000 out of the 500,-
000 shares of the capital stock of the old
hi Roi company. Thu other parties at
interest with Col. Peyton were Valentine
Peyton, ,). M. Armstrong, W. 1) Henley,
and L. F, Williams, of Spokane; C. I.-
English, ,I.T. English and others of Danville, III. The sale of the lliajotity interest was cleverly prevented by the
minority stcokholders, consistiug of Senator George Turner, Wm. J. Harris and
others, who appealed to the courts and
successfully prevented the majority for a
time from consummating the deal. The
majority finally secured the price it
wanted. The result of this disagreement
was that the majority stockholders got
$(i per share for their holdings ami the
minority $8. It is claimed by Williams,
who is the trustee for the phcutiffs, thai
during the progress of the negotiations
it was agreed that $���> per share be pail
fur the majority holding, and th it this
was done. It is further alleged that Col.
Peyton pointed out that as he and his
associates had control they would not
part with their shares   unless a   further
consideration was agreed to. He further
states that Mr. Mackintosh agreed to
pay the majority stockholders the eame
price per Bhare as was given for the
shares of the minority. This amounts
to $2 per share or a total of $520,000.
The defendant corporation makes a general denial of the allegations of the
plaintiffs.

The Political Stopc.
In the political mine of British Columbia last Saturday about t)0 blasts
were touched off and when the smoke
cleared out of the stope about 38 nf them
were found to be effective. The ore
knocked down is principally Conservative, some chunks of Martin and traces
of Labor, Liberal and Provincial party.
It is questionable whether it can be
amalgamated sufficiently nt the legislative smelter in Victoria to pay
shipping expenses. Much of it is refractory and another shipment may
have to be made before the mine will
pay dividends. The two grades of Conservatives seem to predominate and will
probably be run together to save the
conntry from going over the dump.
In Kootenay and Boundary the miners
stood almost solid and elected their favorites. The men were evidently guided hy their leaders who were probably
influenced by some sort of gain. If all
the leaders worked for pure glory and
the love of their fellow man they deserve great credit for their success even
if it is misplaced. ��� New Denver I.edge.

It is unlikely that the remaining members of the ministry will be selected
for some time. As the cabinet
now stands it is .lames Dunsmuir, premier and president of the. council; D. M.
F.berts, attorney-general; .1. H. Turner,
minister of finance. The general consensus of opinion in Victoria is that the
premier will have a strong working majority in Ihe new House. Politicians,
too, concede that Martin has, in resigning when he did, with the recommend*
ation that Dunsmuir be called, made a
good move, at least in as far as the protection of the position of the Lieutenant-
Governor is concerned, for it is now unlikely that any step will be taken towards securing tbe dismissal of M_r. Mclnnes.��� Kossland Miner.

To Our Readers-
Tho Greenwood Minku comes out today under a new management. While
under my control I strove to have its
columns filled witii mining news from
the surrounding mining camps. Iu politics I used its columns for what I considered the best interests of the province
ill general, and Boundary Creek district
in particular. Other political contests
will conic in the future and I am confident that the present management will,
though p rhaps differing from me, work
for the district's best interests; and the
milling news found in its columns will
nl all times be of a hii/h standard without a tonth of wildcat booming, I thank
Ihe public for their past patronage, and
bespeak a like liberal amount for my
successors. With best wishes for the
success of the Mts'Ell,
Faithfully yours,
w. s. Keith.
in liil<ing charge of the Mivbii the
management does not expect tn furnish
a heller or more readable paper than
has been published heretofore, but will
give a paper in accordance with the patronage received. The principal object
in publishing is to make money, News
items that can he picked up and printed
without exertion on the part of the editor will be published. To business men
who look upon advertising as a business
proposition, we will be pleased to sell
space in the Advertising or local columns
of the Minkk. To those who look upon
the space occupied by their names and
business as a sort of charity, we would
say, take the advertisement out. The
manager of the paper is not in need of
charity. There will be wages to pay,
rent to pay, meal tickets to pay for, and
the first day of each month, Sundays
and holidays excepted, our customers
may expect our collector to call on them
and pay and be paid Our position is as
clear as we can make it. If you think
it pays to pay, pay; if you don't think it
pays to pay, order your advertisement
out.
The Miner will be independent politically, supporting that party which it
considers will enact laws for the many,
and not in'.he interests of the few. It
is opposed to what is known as the
"wide open town," especially is this the
A LETTER from Mr. W. S Keith appears iu another column, in reply to an
editorial in the Midway Advance of last
week. During nn election campaign,
little exaggerations are considered legitimate if they serve the purpose of
gaining votes. After the campaign, pen
pie should shake hands and laugh over
their pre-election.difficulties. In Midway, the campaign was, perhaps, more
bitter than in any otlier part of the riding, and the editor of the Advance, being an earnest supporter of Mr. Mackintosh, used strong language to gain his
ends. Mr. Keith was also very much
in earnest in his support of Mr. Curtis,
and qsed equally strong language, Both
should cry quits now Unit the election
is over, as there are more able liars than
cither of them in the distiict who are
not saying a word.

In scanning the election returns from
the six Kocteuay ridings, the coast politicians will do well to note that in each
of them the electors returned as their
representative the man who was the
most uncompromising champion of the
eight-hour law. Kootenay is more interested in the eight-hour law than is
any other section of the province, and
the pronouncement of the people of
Kootenay upon it should be given due
consideration ���Nelson Tribune.
West Kootenay is by far the most important district in tbe province, so far
as milling is concerned. For the year
ending December 81st, 1899, there were
865 crown grants issued for mineral
claims situate in the district, as against
a total of 211 in the remainder of the
province. In East Kootenay crown
grants were issued for 21 claims, Sin

To the. editor of The Minku���In the

an editorial concerning the (ireetnvood

in that capacity when the article was
written, I beg leave to answer the insinuations contained therein.
When I returned from the east about
the last, of February my predecessor,
Mr. Gosnell, informed me that he had a
deal oil with ('. II. Mackintosh for the
Miner and I acquiesed ill the deal, but
from business reasons Mr. Gosnell
ceased to be connected editorially with
the paper, and I took charge, my lirst

of weeks after I wrote Mr. Mackintosh

POLITICAL NOTES.
This Cottonites, the Wilsonites and
the Mackintoshes may now safely be
labeled "bust."
Ralph Smith should be proud of his
part in the preliminaries lo the coronation of King Dunsniuir.
Don'smoir, Turner, Eberts! Mackintosh and a Chinaman would have made
Hie aggregation complete.
Tun gravel train arrived in Phcenix Oil
election day. This accounts for Ihe
large vote polled there by Mackintosh.
Now that Dunsmuir has again taken
over the management of the province,
the people need not fear the encroach
Uients of the New Vancouver Coal company.
Tm: difficulties of Joe Martin iu capturing the votes of the people are nothing
when compared to the difficulties of Jas.
Dunsmuir in capturing honest men for
ids cabinet.
A Dispatch from Victoria states that
the Trout Creek Constable range will he
stocked immediately. This will prove
benelicial to many of the non-producers
ol Ihe province.
Thkiii! is a scheme on foot to "re-in
carnate" the three bolters from the Liberal association in (ireenwood. Or perhaps the scheme is for the three bolters
to "re-incarnate" tlie Liberal association.
Mayor Gardes of Vancouver and Mayor Houston of Nelson have each declined
a cabinet position in Duusiiitiir's ministry, for the very good reason that neither
nf ihe,,, ei.ul.l Lo ro-uluuted uu in am burs
oi the present government.
Wiikn the "reincarnation" of ihe
Liberal party has taken place, and the
moss has been scraped off the backs of
lin- Conservatives, there will be otlier
issues than which of the coal companies
shall manage the affairs of the province
Tim new premier has sufficient wealth
to ,,1'eclude the likelihood of his taking
part in potty peculations.     In   intellect
he is equal io tin- average British Columbian, which, judging from the legislators sent to enact laws for the province in the past twenty years, should be
used sparingly by Ihe owner, and voted
lor seldom hy the elector. The motloof
the llunsiniiirs has been, "What we
have, wfl hold; what you have, we want
In hold." The lion. James Dunsmuir
tuny make a good premier, and the
province may prosper under his guidance, but if so he will prove traitor to
the traditions of his family and the Victoria compact of which he is one of the
leaders.
Among the Missing.
The following gentlemen, who had
seats in the last house, are missing from
the present one: Messrs Bryden, Higgins, Robertson, McKeehnie, Macpher-
HOU, Cotton, Tisdale, Forrester, Semlin,
Deane, Kinchatit, llelgesou, Kellie, J.
Martin, Hume, linker and Henderson
(17). Of these, one-half did not offer
for re-election, Of the members who
voted for the defeat of the Semlin government two have been defeated and
one did not. offer again ; the others have
been elected. Of the Semlin government only one offered for re-election and j
he was defeated. Of the members of I
of the late house who voted i
with the Semlin government on
the final want of confidence question
only six are in the new house, The
overturn is complete.

Lord Kitchener of Khartoum is a
straight-forward soldier but he does not
scorn the art of turning a compliment
gracefully.
It has long been said of him that he
is proof against feminine charms, and
when he waited upon Her Majesty at
Windsor the Queen was curious enough
to put a pointed question.
"Is it true, my Lord," she said, "that
you have never  yet cared for  woman?"
"Yes, Your Majesty," replied the
Sidar, "quite true���with one exception."
"Ah," said the Queen, "and who is
she?"
The Sidar bowed. "Your Majesty,"
said he.���London Times.
Harry Tidd, a young druggist attended
the service in the Bethany Presbyterian
church at Trenton, N. J., and went to

and removed his coat and waistcoat.
Two women who sat in the same pew
with him removed ton far corner. Then
he unbuttoned his collar and took of his
cravat, and next his shirt came over his
head. Ho was about to slide out of his
trousers when several women shrieked
and he awoke with a start. Mis trousers were dangling about his feet as he
ran down the aisle to the vestry. An
usher handed him his clothing nnd he
put them on and went home.
Sir William Harcmirt once visited a
man-of-var lying of the Hampshire
coast. After dinner the weather proved
rather rough and the.captain, n small
dapper man, suggested that Sir William
should sleep ou board and surrendered
his own berth for the night to the ex-
chancellor of the exchequer.
Next morning the captain's sailor servant who knew nothing of the change of
berths, brought a cup of coffee to the
cabin door and knocked once or twice
without receiving an answer. .Somewhat alarmed he opened the door and
asked:
"Do you want your coffee this ninrn-
ing, sir?"
The only answer was a growl and the
frightened sailor saw a gigantic ligure
turn over under the bedclothes, Dropping the coffee he rushed to Ihe ship's
surgeon exclaming:
"For goodness sake, sir, come to the
I'uptain! He's speechless uml swollen
to ten times his natural size."
One night while traveling through
Virginia, ,lohu Randolph stopped nt an
inn near the forks of two roads. The
innkeeper wns a Hue old gentleman, und
knowing who his distinguished guest
was, he endeavored during the evening
to bring him into a conversation, but
failed. But in the morning when Mr.
Randolph was ready to start, he called
for his bill and paid it. The landlord,
still anxious to have some conversation
tackled him again:
"Which way are you traveling, Mr.
Randolph?"
"Sir!" said Mr. Randolph with a look
of displeasure.
"I asked," said the landlord, "which
way you are traveling."
"Have I paid mv bill?"
"Yes."
"Do I owe you anything more?"
"No."
"Well, 1 am going just where I please.
Do you understand?"
"Yes."
The landlord by this time got somewhat excited and Mr. Randolph drove off.
Hut to the landlord's surprise in a few
minutes he sent one of the servants to
inquire which of the forks of the road to
take.    Mr.  Randolph still   being within
hearing distance, the landlord yelled at
the top of his voice :
"Mr. Randolph, you don't owe me
one cent; take whichever road you
please."
A man applied to the college for a
coat of arms, says a writer in the Corn-
hill Magazine, and was asked if any of
his ancestors had been renowned for any
singular achievements. The man
paused and considered, but could recollect nothing,
"Your father," said the herald, aiding
his memory; "your grandfather, your
great-grandfather?"
"No," returned the applicant, "I
never knew that I had a great-grandfather or a grandfather."
"Or yourself?" asked this creator of
dignity.
"I know nothing remarkable of myself," returned the man, only that being
once locked up in Luilgate prision for
debt, I found means to escape from an
upper window, and that you know is no
honor in a man's scutcheon."
"And how did you get down?" said
the herald.
"Odd enough," retorted the man. "I
procured a cord, fixed it round the neck
of the statue of King Lud, on the outside of the building, and thus let. myself down."
"I have it," said the herald. "Lineally descended from King Lud ! Aud bis
coat of arms will do for vou."

offered, $11 80 per day, 7 days per week ;
board, $1* per day. The fare from Vancouver is $211, which will be deducted
from men's wages. As the wages offered aro low for the far north, it is
hardly probable that experienced rock

^ttffffftfffff^^ REPORT OF THE GREENWOOD..
SUPPLEMENT TO THE MINER.
BOARD OF TRADE
GREENWOOD,   BRITISH   COLUMBIA.   JUNE,   1900.
The; issue by the green-
wood Board of Trade of its first
annual report, part of which is
published below, is a fitting occasion
upon which to once again direct attention to the prominent position to which
Greenwood City has attained, partly
as a result of the persistent efforts of
its more enterprising residents, but in
larger measure upon its actual merits
which have placed it in the lead as the
most important town in the district.
Started live years ago, its progress was
comparatively slow up to the time of
its incorporation in 1897. Since then
it has made rapid strides, until today-
it may fairly claim to be the metropolis of the Boundary country. In
support of this claim it may be advanced that it has a population of
about 3,000. In financial matters,
three strong chartered banks have opened branches in the town and five loan
and investment companies have local
agencies. Commercially it is well provided for, with a half a dozen mercantile houses doing business on a comparatively large scale and three times
that number in a smaller way. Industrially it is the center of the largest
lumbering and sawmilling concern
operating in the district, has two
breweries, steam laundry and other industries, the number aud variety of
which may be gauged by the existe/ice
of a Trades and Labor Council, representative of the local unions of the
miners, printers, carpenters, tailors,
painters, clerks and plumbers and iron
workers. The British Columbia Copper Company's smelter, now approaching completion, is in immediate proximity to the town, and it is announced
that the erection in the neighborhood
of a pyritic smelter will shortly be
undertaken. Resident in the town,
too, are more members of the professions���medical, legal, civil and mining engineering, surveying, etc.���than
in any other town in the district. It is
at present the terminus of the Columbia and Western branch of the Canadian Pacific Railway system, no passenger trains as vet running beyond
here. Stage lines run hence to Greenwood mining camp iu one direction
and in another to the milling districts
of the upper main Kettle river and its
several  tributaries, Camp  McKinney,
Fairview, Similkameen and the Myers
creek and Okanagan camps, south of
the international boundary line. Two
telegraph and two telephone systems,
the latter with outside connections as
well as local exchanges, and a daily
niail afford means of ready communication. Two newspapers are published
in the town, which, having wagon
road connection with a dozen surrounding camps, is most favorably situated
for gathering' and disseminating news.
In municipal matters the city has its
own water system, fire, police and
health departments; has carried out
many street and other public improvements and keeps the town in a generally clean and healthy condition. The
Dominion government has its resident
customs and inland revenue officers,
whilst the Provincial government,
having made Greenwood the official
center of the extensive Kettle River
Mining Division, has its resident gold
commissioner, mining recorder, etc.
A Supreme Court registry has been
established and here, too, are regularly
held sessions of the County Court of
Yale, whilst in the town is stationed
as well the chief provincial constable
for the whole Boundary district.
As to religious matters, there are
thiee church buildings erected, three
ministers live in the town and two
other churches also hold services. A
public school affords ordinary educational facilities. Sports and amusements are provided for, there being
cricket, baseball and football clubs and
a skating rink for outdoor pastimes,
with a theatre and music hall for indoor public entertainment. A well-
appointed private hospital furnishes
for the sick an institution where good
medical and surgical attendance and
skilled nursing are always available.
Five secret societies have lodges and
other organizations contribute to the
In reviewing' the prospects and condition of the mining industry of the
Boundary Creek District it is necessary
to direct attention to several facts
tending to show that a comparison
with the older and better developed
mining districts would not be fuir to
the former unless due allowance were
made for the attendant circumstances
{unfavorable to it. The lack of railway
transportation facilities has heretofore
involved heavy and almost prohibitory
freight charges on machinery, plant,
materials and mine stores. Power
plants in use at its mines are consequently of comparatively small capacity and development work has
necessarily been slow, the more so
since the data necessary for the advantageous working of the mines can be so
speedily obtained where big bodies of
generally low grade ore have to be
opened up. Then whilst the branch
railway lines to several of the principal
mines have lately been completed, the
smelter at Greenwood is still only
under construction and that at Grand
Forks, though about ready for blowing
in, is' but now being connected by rail
with the mines. Further, the district
has not yet, except in two or three In-
instances, had the benefit of the expenditure of any considerable amount
of outside capital. So it has resulted
that, with only a limited amount of
capital available, actual mining operations have been much restricted, whilst
the absence of suitable transportation
and smelting facilities have greatly retarded progress. The prospect for
eaily improvement are, however, very
encouraging. With transportation and
ore reduction needs largely provided
for, several of the mines settling down
upon a producing basis and so en
couraging the further expenditure of
capital for their adequate equipment
and more extensive operation, the con-

Morrison and Buckhorn, all copper-
gold properties. Among numerous
other claims are the Ah There, Greyhound, Great Hopes, Marguerite, the

Claims in this camp are too numerous
to detail here. Greenwood camp is
noted for its big deposits���which
may without any exaggeration be described as enormous- .���! copper-gold
ore. Values do not yet, as a rule, run
high, the average value, for instance,
of more than a million tons of ore
blocked out in the Knob Hill, having
been placed by the  mining superiiiteii-

a similar plant to that on the Buckhorn. The Brooklyn and Stemwinder
have three boilers, a five drill air compressor, two steam hoists, pumps, etc.
The Old Ironsides No. 2 shaft, now
down 400 feet, is the deepest shaft, in
the district and the Stemwinder shaft
is 325 feet in depth. Some 200 men are
on the pay roll in this camp and an
early increase, by at least SO, is

of ore and is shipping its daily output
of 70 tons, taken from stopes at the 150-
foot level and from its development
workings iu other parts of the mine.
Its working shaft is 272 feet in depth.
Three distinct shoots of ore have beei
exposed by the work done so far and
those yield ore of a higher average
value than that met with in some of
the other camps of the district. The
plant of the B. C. includes four boilers,
together about 225 horse power, a
straight line Rand four-drill air compressor,   half of  a  Class G. Iugersol/- GREENWOOD HOARD OF TRADE.

a full complement of accessories. The
plant at the Oro Denoro Includes
boiler, air compressor, machine drills,
hoisting engine and steam pump. The
Maple Leaf, one of the Rathmullen
group of claims, is similarly equipped,
and a small power plant is now installed on the R. Bell. Other well-
known claims in Summit camp are the

Branch lines connect this camp with
the C, P. K. main line t Eholt. There
are about 70 men on the B. C. mine
pay roll and a few arc employed at the
R.Bell, Other properties will resume
work shortly, so the number of men
employed In  the camp will  then be
larger. Summit camp is eight miles
from Greenwood. North of Summit
camp about two miles is Pass creek,
along which some noteworthy discoveries of copper have been made.
WELLINGTON CAMP.
Iii this camp there are four properties at wo-k, the At heist an, Winnipeg, (iolden Crown and Hartford, The
number of feet done in development is
as under:
country rock here is of a dark felds-
pathic nature, while some of the principal ore bodies occur in gabbro, which
appears in quite extensive areas and
in the case of the Winnipeg vein the
enclosing rock is serpentine; this, however, is merely an altered gabbro.
The ore in this Camp is chiefly pyrrho-
tite near the surface, but as depth is
gained it becomes silicious and carries
higher gold values. Between 40 and
SO men are employed in the camp.
CENTRAL CAMP.
Iii Central camp are several properties considered very promising that
have been idle for some time These
include No. 7, Mabel, Oro, Cornucopia
and others. The City of Paris and
Majestic groups tire being- operated
under one management. The former
has shipped more than 1,500 tons of ore
to the Granby smelter. It is sending
out about 25 tons of ore per day and
will shortly increase its shipments tu
4(1 tons daily. The two mines together
get their power from the same plant,
which includes two 80-horse power
boilers, a 10-drill duplex air compressor, six machine drills, steam huist,
pump,   etc.    About   5(1   men   are  em
ployed at the mines besides a number
of freighters engaged in hauling ore
to (irand Forks. The following is the

SMITH'S   CAMP.
Ill Smith's camp quartz ores prevail,
values being in gold and silver. The
Republic group of four claims has had
the most work done on it in this camp.
The Boundary Falls and neighboring
claims occasionally show free gold.
The American Boy, Ruby and Golconda group, the last named having
arsenical iron and copper ores, are
other well-known claims. The ores in
this camp occur in veins from one foot
to eight feet wide,, giving good values,
and in some cases, high silver values.
COPPER-CAMP.
Copper camp has Immense 'surface
showings of copper ore, but as yet only
a very limited amount of development
work has been done in the camp, the
principal claims in which are the Big
Copper and K-wig -Solomon. There is
u small steam power plant on the latter claim. The copper deposits here
occur in contact with lime and porphyry and show large surface outcrops
of iron oxide (red hematite) and quartz.
In some cases native copper, cuprite
and copper glance are distributed
through this capping, more or less uni-
The Winnipeg is down 330 feet and
the Golden Crown 322 feet. Both have
run drifts and crosscuts at several
levels down to the 300-foot, and both
report an ore vein over 30 feet in
width at that depth. Both mines have
sent   ore   lo the smelter.   That from
the Winnipeg returned values up to [ of ore, rich in gold and silver, are the
$22 per ton, whilst Golden Crown ore chief characteristics of these camps,
is stated to run higher. Both are Ore has been shippe from the Provi-
equipped with steam boilers, hoists and deuce, Strathmore, Last Chance and
pumps, air compressors, machine drills, Skylark claims, the values returned
etc.    The Athelstan also  has a power  being  generally comparatively   high.
formly,    Some excellent copper values
are obtained in Ibis camp.
LONG LAKE camp.
Long   Lake   camp  contains   chiefly
gold-quartz ores in which tellurides of
gold  occur.    The  Jewel   and   Denero
Grande are adjoining claims, operated
by the same company, which has done
the   most development    wurk   in   this
camp.    The  Jewel  shaft  is down 350
feet.    This  mine is equipped with two
boilers,   together    75'horse   power,   a
four-drill straight line air compressor,
three   machine   drills,    steam    hoist,
pumps, etc.   A stamp mill andcyanid-

OTHER CAMPS.
Seven miles up Boundary creek, by
wagon road, is Kimberly camp. A
large number of claims have been located, but as yet development has gone
on in a small way, no large companies
having taken hold of it.    The ore here GREENWOOD BOARD OF TRADE.
is heavy sulphides (copper and iron),
and sonic pyrrhotlte,
|. In West Copper camp, nine miles
northwest of Greenweod, a number of
claims have been located, The ores
are arsenical pyrites iu a slllcious
gangue, giving gold assays up to $36
per ton.
Very promising camps are being
opened up on the North Fork aud ou
the Main Kettle river. In the vicinity
of Beaverton, on the West Fork, are
some exceptionally line showings and
development work is being carried on
actively. At Canyon creek, on the
Mi in Kettle, there are extensive deposits of mispickle; on tlie north of
this again is the Lottie E\, a very rich
copper prospect. The whole of the
country referred to is still in its infancy, from a mining point of view,
but is attracting a great deal of deserved attention, and numerous miners
and prospectors arc going in.
Approximate number of men employed in connection with mining in

understood that the men
enumerated lu the foregoing table are engaged wholly in the
work of development and that iu none
of the mines are shipping forces employed. As already intimated, there
are two large and modern smelters in
course Of construction, one at (ireenwood and the other at Grand Forks,
both of which will be blown in this
autumn; when these are in operation
the number of men on the pay roll in
the mines will be doubled or trebled.
The following is a summary of the
number of feet of development in the
several mining camps, and, in this connection it may be remarked, that the
details are of a most conservative
character and may be accepted as absolutely reliable:
