Henry H. Greyson, who died in Philadelphia the other day of hiccoughs,
seems to have been a good example of
the irony of fate, that he should have
passed through so many perils to die of
such an unromautic sickness. He had
fought with Baden-Powell in South Africa in some of the native wars, and
had been recommended by that officer
for tie Victoria cross. He was mixed
up in the Jameson raid. Later he was
in Manila, and was with Lawton when
he was killed He is said to have been
a poet of considerable   ability.���Itutte

It was a keen football match, and
much depended on the result; so that
when one of the home team retired hurt
there was a wail of disappointment.
"What's the matter, lad?" asked an excited spectator as tlie injured man came
up tbe pavilion steps.
For answer the player displayed his
gums, from which lour teeth were missing.
"Is that all?" scornfully exclaimed a
stout committee man. "Why, lad,
that's nowt to come off't Held for. Go
back, an' I'll see thee reight. Tba
shall hev some new teeth after t' match,
if it costs the club ��100."

ut General Boiler's home, says an exchange. It was delivered, addressed
General Sir Redvers Buller, G 0. B.,
V. 0.. and when opened revealed
another package addressed Captain Redvers Buller, 1th liutitllii.il. King's Royal
Hides. This was opened and found to
contain a medal with three clasps, given
for the Red River expedition. The lied
River expedition was iu 1870, and
though bloodless, was admirably organized. Lord Wolseley commanded for
the lirst time, and it was General Midler's first campaign.

A well-known politician lias invented

Tbe other night a newspaper man
went to hie house, and wishing to be
called at an early hour, received a promise from bis host that he should be out
of bed at the hour he named. Satisfied
that everything would be serene, the
scribe retired and slept the sleep of the
just all through the night. This childlike slumber lasted until r.n early hour
in the morning, when the newspaper
man was disturbed by a lively tattoo
upon the door.
"Well?" he demanded, sharply.
"I've got an important message for
you," said a voice.
Yawning until he sprained his face,
the scribe jumped out, toddled across
the floor, and opened tho door. The
servant handed in a note and promptly
departed The newspaper man opened
tlie envelope and found therein a slip of
paper bearing the following:���
"Why in the world don't you get Up?"

Through carelessness on the part of
the committee of a well-known   London
club, and some dexterous wire-pulling
by the individual concerned, an exceedingly unpopular man contrived to secure his election; but he soon made
himself generally obnoxious to his fellow-members by continually posing and
swaggering ou the steps at the entrance.
One morning, not long after he had
taken up his customary position, a prominent member of the club, whom we
will call Major Dash, came up the steps
and in passing him said, with quiet sarcasm: "1 say, K , I could get subscriptions to the tune of live hundred
pounds for you in tho club, if you would
only take your name off the hooks."
K    rushed   off  in   a  tremendous
rage to a friend of  bis  with  the story.
"What do you think?" he shouted.
"1 have been outrageously insulted by
that Major Dash. He has just said that
if I would take my name off the club
books he would get up a subscription of
five hundred pound for me. What
would you do?"
"Well, if 1 were you, I wouldn't take
it.    Vou Bland out a bit, and  you'll get
a thousand."

Bring on your Canadians?
The panting galloper cried.
We must cross that plain, men,
And mount yon Sunnyside.
And away went the troops,
Toronto! they called them.
They skirmished through the kloofs,
'Twas easy for Canadian men,
The light then was o'er.
The Boers soon gave in,
They said it wasn't clover
To slug Ontario's men.
They know more than Boer,
Of tricky, shooting play,
That's how they came to lower
The Transvaal Hag that day.

Referring to the talk of a Fenian invasion of Canada the New York Times
says: "We can assure our Ludy of the
Snows that she is quite safe from all of
us except our aldermen, and they will
attack her only at long range, and by
iTBolutisiiB formally adopted as a relief
from the monotony of granting sidewalk

When Lord Charles Berisford was a
hoy of thirteen his father told him that
he must make a choice of profession.
"What is it to be, my boy���the army,
the navy, or tbe church'.'"
"The navy, sir."
"And why the navy, boy?"
"Cause I'd like to be an admiral, like
' Nelson."
I    "Pshaw!    Like Nelson!     Why Nel-
I son?"
" 'Cause I want to."
"But even if you were to Join the
navy, why do you think you will ever
become an admiral, Charlie?"
" 'Cause I mean to," was the blunt
reply. He had his wish and entered
the navy.

ANNOUNCEMENT.
With thiB issue The Greenwood
Minkii has changed hands, ami is now
under tho management of W. S. Keith.
The job printing department will still
be under the direction of E. M. Grace,
whose name has been in the past, and
will continue to be a guarantee of unsurpassed workmanship. Our prices
will also compare favorably with those
of any other office in the Boundary district, and we solicit the same liberal
patronage as has been accorded us in
the past.
amounted to $2,450.50, These figures
should conclusively prove to eastern
wholesalers that business is not dead in
Greenwood. There is always in a new
town a dull period at some season of the
year, and Greenwood is no exception to
the general rule; but Greenwood differs
greatly from the majority of mining
towns of tbe west in that it lias never
been a boom town at any stage. Ds
growth has been steady and natural, and
the slack times visit us with the same
regularity, though not of the sam^ duration, ae elsewhere, This year the dull
season came later than usual, but a
change is already preceptible. The hotels are full, some of them nut being able
to accommodate their patrons.
Greenwood is bound to be a large and
wealthy citv, ami those acquainted with
its magnificent resources are slow to
condemn it.
APPLICATION FOR CHARTER.
Mr. Aiilay Morrison has Introduced a
bill in the house of commons for the
granting of a charter to the Keltic tiiver
Valley Railway Co, Whal efforts are
the people ol the Boundary district
going to make to assist, in thu passage
ol this bill? For tba p'isl two years the
public have displayed grest interest in
Ibis quest Ion The first attompt to get
such a bill passed met with defeat.
Last year u greater effort was nuiile, but
the application for a charter was with'
drawn. A third attoinpl should be
made now to obtain competotlve rates
for the district; and should such effort
he a United one, it would insure a probability oi its Buccess.

BOUNDARY MISREPRESENTED,
When Frank L, D. Smith, travelling
correspondent,  of  the Toronto    World,
forecasts the closing down  of the  Old j
Ironsides,   Knob   Hill,   Mother Lode,
Sunset, and other Boundary Creek prop-1
ertles, thus throwing thousands of mon
out of employment, he is simply making
a display of Ignorance.    In the   lirst j
place there am   not thousands of men ,
employed In the mines of tho district;!
and in the second  place none of  these j
properties has the remotest, intention of |
closing down at the present time.   Tile
Ironsides and   Knob Hill nre  pushing!
forward development work as rapidly as
possible so as to he prepared for  regular j
shipments    as   soon   as   ihe   Grandby !
smelter at Grand Forks is  ready  to be
blown in.    Tbe  Mother Lode   is  also
being energetically developed    that   it
may be in a position to keep the smelter
at Greenwood supplied with ore when it
has been  completed; and  the Sunset,
too, having just installed their new  machinery,   will  continue work to open Up
their property.   Tlie Dominion  Copper
Co. has laid off a few men, but. it is generally  understood  that   a  larger  force
than ever  will   be employed  in  n  few
woek*.      Business    in   the    Boundary
towns is good and improving daily, and
no snare articles in eastern  papers  will
materially affect it.

EDITORIAL NOTES.
The Liberal Association at their meeting on Thursday evening of last week,
showed wisdom ill their resolution stating that "at the present time they
deemed it Inadvisable to hold a district
convention (or the purpose of nominating a liberal candidate to contest the
constituency at the approaching elections." The liberals are allowing themselves to become divided, a few endorsing Ihe Hon. Joseph Martin as the
leader of the party. The remainder not
wishing to resort at present to the introduction of federal party lines into provincial politics, care Bhould be taken by
the liberals that the party bo kept, solidly together. The splitting up into factious will surely cause great weakness,
and rob the party of its weight at tho
coming federal elections.
The city council should try and And
some way to protect its  business  men,
i. e., those who live anil do business in
thecity. Agents from the coast cities
arrive bere weekly and go about thecity
soliciting orders from private parties
without Interference; nnd if the collect
or does get on their track they squirm
out of a license by appointing some firm
iu tbe city their agent until they can
get away from town. Responsible
firms should not permit, such appoint
nients, as sooner or later it will he their
turn to lay similar complaints before the
city authorities, and will feel the most
badly used of all if such complaints are
not promptly attended to

Henry H. Greyson, who died in Philadelphia the other day of hiccoughs,
seems to have been a good example of
tbe irony of fate, that be should have
passed through so many perils to die of
such an unromantic sickness. He had
fought with Baden-Powell in South Africa in some of the native wars, and
bad been recommended by that officer
for the Victoria cross. Ho was mixed
up in the Jameson raid. Later he was
in Manila, and was with Lawton when
he was killed. He is said to bave been
a poet of considerable   ability.���Butte

It was a keen football match, and
much depended on the result; so that
when one of the home team retired hurt
there was a wail of disappointment.
"What's the matter, lad?" asked an excited spectator as tbe injured man came
up tbe pavilion steps.
For answer the player displayed hie
gums, from which four teeth were missing.
"Is that all?" scornfully exclaimed a
stout committee man. "Why, lad,

Tbe other day a parcel was delivered
at General Buller's home, says an eiP
change. It was delivered, addressed
General Sir Redvers Buller, G C. B.,
V. C, and when opened revealed
another package addressed Captain Redvers Buller, 4th Ratallion, King's Royal
Rifles. This was opened and found to
contain a medal with three clasps, given
for the Red River expedition. The Red
River expedition was in 1870, and
though bloodless, was admirably organized. Lord Wolseley commanded for
the lirst time, and it was General Buller's first campaign,

A well-known politician has invented
a new system of calling sleepy guests
that works like a charm. Its very simplicity in its supreme attraction.
The other night a newspaper man
went to bis house, and wishing to be
called at an early hour, received a promise from his host that be should be out
of bed at the hour be named. Satisfied
that everything would be serene, the
scribe retired and slept tbe sleep of the
just all through the night. This childlike slumber lasted until fin early hour
in the morning, when the newspaper
man was disturbed by a lively tattoo
upon the door.
"Well?" he demanded, sharply.
"I've got an important message for
you," said a voice.
Yawning until be sprained bis face,
the scribe jumped out, toddled across
the floor, and opened the door. Tbe
servant handed in a note and promptly
departed The newspaper man opened
the envelope and found therein a slip of
paper bearing the following:���
"Why in tbe world don't you get up?"

Through carelessness on the part of
tbe committee of a well-known   London
club, and some dexterous wire-pulling
by the individual concerned, an exceedingly unpopular man contrived to secure his election; but be soon made
himself generally obnoxious to his fellow-members by continually posing and
swaggering on the steps at the entrance.
One morning, not long after be had
taken up his customary position, a prominent member of the club, whom we
will call Major Dash, came up the steps
and in passing him said, with quiet sarcasm: "I say, K , I could get subscriptions to the tune of live hundred
pounds for you in tbe club, if you would
only take your name off the books."
K    rushed   off in   a tremendous
rage to a friend of bis with  tbe story.
"What do you think?" be shouted.
"I have been outrageously insulted by
that Major Dash. He bat just said that
if I would take my name off the club
books he would get up a subscription of
rive hundred pound for me. What
would you do?"
"Well, if I were you, I wouldn't take
it.    You stand out a bit, and  you'll get
a thousand."

Referring to the talk of a Fenian invasion of Canada the New York Times

"Cause I'd like to be an admiral, like

"Pshaw! Like Nelson! Why Nelson?"
" 'Cause I want to."
"But even if you were to join the

amounted to $2,450.50. These figures
sliould conclusively prove to eastern
wholesalers that business is not dead in
Greenwood. There is always in a new
town a dull period at some season of the
year, and Greenwood is no exception to
the general rule; but Greenwood differs
greatly from the majority of mining
towns of the west in that it has never
been a boom town at any stage. Its
growth has been steady and natural, and
the slack times visit us with the same
regularity, though not of the Bain i duration, as elsewhere. This year the dull
season came later than usual, but a
change ia already preceptible. The hotels are full, some of them not being able
to accommodate their patrons.
Greenwood is bound to be a large and
wealthy citv, and those acquainted with
its magnificent resources are slow to
condemn it.

Campbell & McGregor, Greenwood, are
putting up a hardware store; Wm. Hamilton, Bolster, is moving his general
store to a new building next to Campbell & McGregor's; E. E. Stowell is
building a store for bis stock of general

is to be erected, plans for which are already out; Olson & Phelan are opening
up a saloon in the new building erected
by Isaac Waldron, and Joe Cook, well
known in Greenwood, is opening up a
stock of stationery, cigars, etc. in his
new building.
L. B. Pearce, foreman of the Review-
mine, on Thursday charged W. E.Doyle
with assault and battery with attempt
to kill. The dispute arose over a mining property, the legal possession of
which both claim. The testimony
showed that while Pearce had been attacked, the assault, was not premeditated, and the judge dismissed the case.
Subsequent proceedings took the form
of a warrant iasued yesterday to compel
the defendant to keep the peace.
D. Gillam, one of the pioneer prospectors of this district, died; the other

wa�� 54 years of age, and died of a complication of disease!. He bad been ailing for some months. He aud his brother had considerable property in the

King Mining Company.
A meeting of the stockholders of the
King Mining company will be held on
April 5th for the purpose of authorizing
a loan of $15,000, and another meeting is
to be held on April 23rd to confirm tho
resolution adopted at the first meeting,
says the Rossland Miner. The money
is to be used in the purchase of cither a
five or a seven-drill compressor for the
Oro Denero, which is being operated by
the King company. The property is
now provided with a two-drill compressor, which is not sufficiently large for
economical development, and Neil Cochrane, the superintendent, has so reported to the company.   The property has
large ore bodies, and a good sized plant
is absolutely necessary for its further development.
Banner Bond Taken Up.
Last Thursday the final payment was
made on the bond on the Banner claim,
owned by the Grey Eagle Gold Mining
company, the new corporation organized by the Miner-Graves syndicate to
operate the Grey Eagle, Banner, Tip
Top, and Triangle fraction, all of which
properties adjoin the Old Ironsides,
Knob Hill and War Eagle. For obvious
reasons the amount involved is not
given out for publication, but it is
thought to be in the neighborhood of $25,-
000. The owners were James Marshall
and Thos. Roderick, and the payment
was made throught the Bank of Commerce at Greenwood.
This last payment on the bond on the
Banner was not due till March 15, but
the cash was ready and waiting in the
bank a week or more ahead of time.���

Cold Commissioners Appointed.
W. J. McMynn, mining recorder at
Midway for the Kettle River Mining
Division, and S. R. Almond, Grand
Forks Mining Division, have been notified to act as gold commissioners for
their respective divisions. Both of
these gentlemen have had long experience and are thoroughly competent to
fill the positions to which they have
been appointed. Heretofore Mr. Lamb-
ley, of Fairview, has had those divisions
within his jurisdiction as gold commissioner. The new arrangement will be a
great convenience to the entire Boundary
mining community. The appointments
take effect from the 15th inst.���Victoria

South Deadwood Strike.
A fine body of copper-gold ore has
been opened up on the Early History
claim in South Deadwood camp. The
body is eight feet in thickness and of
good grade. Its nearnesB to the B. C.
Copper company's smelter will add materially to its valuation. The Early History joins the Little Ruth claim, and is
only a short distance from the Buckhorn.	
Another Smelter at Grand Forks.
It is rumored that Andrew Laidlaw
and associates in Quebec have purchased the rights of the Gager people in
Grand Forks, and will erect there a
Loder Pyritic smelter. Mr. Laidlaw is
the gentleman who lately bonded the
Marguerite group and Standard claim at
Greenwood. He is expected to arrive
in town during next week.

STiLL HANGING FIRE
Martin   Unable  to   Fill   His
Cabinet.
Hon. Smith Curtis, Minister of Mines,
is Doing Some Good Work���Breakers Ahead.
Victoria, March 10.���(Special to the
Minkii ) Like the proverbial oat with
its extra quota of lives, Joseph Martin
has again demonstrated that the breath
of political life is still in him. He has
also demonstrated some other feline
characteristics in his agility, hi* vindic-
ttvoliess, I bad almost, said, bin treachery. Until the political atmosphere is
clearer, however, we can hardly place
the blame in certain matters where they
properly belong, and perhaps, therefore,
il would be premature to place such a
charge against a man who, if his political
opponents are to be believed, has already
much to answer for.
The organization of the Martin cabinet is not proceeding with the celerity
which marked the first two days of its
existence, and it looks very much as
though Joe wbh encountering difficulty
in filling up bis portfolios. Indeed, the
different offices went a hogging for ll
time. Certainly he has not shown a
great deal of discrimination in his offers
of cabinet posts. The general impression, however, is that his cabinet will be
a scratch one���just sufficiently strong in
numbers to satisfy the stupid dictum of
the governor in regard to filling portfolios, and possessed of sufficient mediocrity to allow Joe his own sweet will
in matters of policy, When he conies
back from the country, if successful, all
this will be changed. Yet despite the
general chorus of denunciation which
greeted his advent as advisor to Her
Majesty, it cannot be denied that as
condemnations increase, so do Joe's
friends. It cannot be denied that he
has gained Immeasurably during tho
last few weeks. There are a number of
causes for this some of which I will endeavor to enumerate.
One main factor in this popularity undoubtedly is the strong spirit of antagonism which he breathes to Mongolians
and the C. P. R. Rightly or wrongly
he has struck a popular chord in the
stand he has taken, and it does not matter much whether he is sincere or not.
Tho C. P. R. are credited with a plan
for importing some of the ablest
speakers in Canada to light Martin at
the general election, yet I venture to
predict that such a course would be
fatal to them and be tbe means of electing Martin. Once the people are convinced that he is sincere, and that the
corporations which he. opposes are genuinely alarmed, they will support him
en masse.    This is the prophecy.
Then, too, Smith Curtis is making an
admirable minister, With a wide
knowledge of mining matters be has
great experience and corresponding
promptitude to bear on his department,
|pnd has already adjusted several matters which have caused heart burnings
between minors at the department for
months. Mo promises to make an excellent departmental head ; and in what
department of the government of lirit-
isli Columbia is there greater need of a
Btrong, sincere and capable man than in
that, of mines?
Of course the views just expressed are
not  those   of  the  old   line   politicians.
They see nothing but breakers ahead for
the ministry, and even predict that, in a
week's time there will be no Martin ministry.   Well, we shall see.
Death at Rossland.

inst. Deceased was a native of Jamestown, N. Y.
"It is reported that at a recent emergency meeting of Ihe Free State raad, at

THE   OREENWOOD   MINER
The Strawberry Mine.
This property is situated on the North
���ork of the Kettle river, about midway
Between Greenwood and Grand Forks.
Two shafts bave been sunk on the property, one 70, and the other 55 feet deep.
At the former about 50 tons of high
���rade ore are on the dump At tbe bot-
J��iin of the latter a crosscut has been run
|->4 feet, of which 28 feet is in ore, which
is principally arsenical iron and chalcopyrites, giving assay values as high as
24 percent copper, with smaller values
in gold aud silver.
Tbe property is largely owned by Quebec capitalists, with A. R. Clubon of
Rossland as financial manage)'. Its
proximity and easy grade to the Gran-
by smelter greatly enhances its value in
the eyes of its owners, who believe they
have the banner property of the North
Fork.
Wires to Dawson.
The Canadian Pacific railway telegraph have made arrangements with the
dominion government, by which press
dispatches will be handled at the rate of
four cents per word between Victoria
and points in the Yukon. To this rate
is to be added the regular press rate to
Victoria. The dominion government
have also arranged for cablegrams at 45
cents per word in addition to the Atlantic cable rates.

City Assessment.
City Assessor Hallett has completed
the assessment notices and mailed them
to all property owners. Any person
having objection to tbe assessor's valuation must give nol ice of such obiection
before the sitting of the court of revision
on April 18th.
Tho Manitoba Free-Press save: "There
l.as never been in the history of this
country a lieutenant-governor publicly
censured by a legislature sitting in due
form and clothed with all its powers,
and under the whole circumstances wo
question very much if Lieutenant Governor Mclnnes' usefulness is not gone,
if indeed, it ever existed."
Smallpox Scare
Two cases of smallpox have been officially reported from Grand Forks, and
it is rumored that there are two others.
All who are affected will be strictly
quarantined. The health officers of
Greenwood should take every precaution against this dread disease, even resorting to compulsory vaccination should
any more cases be reported.
A Clean city.
Now is the time for the nuisance inspector to get in hia work and see that
the back yards and front yards are
cleaned up. The sidewalk and steps
approaching the post ollice are in a
filthy condition. These things should
all be looked after, as cleanliness in
these respects may prevent an epidemic
of typhoid fever during the next two or
three months.

Good Printing,
Brings Good Results,
That the above observation is the living truth needs no argument, and that poor results are the return of the opposite
kind is equally well established. The printed matter that a
ouslness man puts out is his agent and solicitor and to bring
noon results should not be offensive to the eye by reason of
the bad taste and poor workmanship displayed in the selection and arrangement of the type faces used. The Moral to
all this is plain: "Get your printing where they do Goon
Printing."   If you do we will be sure to serve you.

THE   GREENWOOD   MINER
-//
Largest Mining Plant in the Boundary.
II. It. Kirkpatrick representing the
.lames Cooper Mfg. Co., Ltd., of Montreal, called at the Minkii office, and was
pleased to give some information regarding the new plant ordered by the B. C.
Copper Company for the Mother I,ode
mine, the contract for which was signed
a few days ago in Now York. The plant
consists of a Cross compound steam,
compound air. CcirlisH air compressor,
the high and low pressure steam cylinders being 22-inch and 40-inch diameter,
respectively, the air cylinders to be of
tho piston inlet pipe, high and low pressure, 19J�� inch and il'J'v. inch diameter
respectively, and 48-inch stroke, the
machine to have a capacity of 4(1 drills.
The boilers consist of two of the horizontal return tubular type, each 100 h. p.
for 125 pounds pressure; also a full supply of Ingersoll-Sergeant drills, with all
necessary mountings and fittings. This
is the largest plant ever ordered for the
Boundary district, and is second to none
in Canada.
Mr. Kirkpatrick says that no expense
will be spared to make it the best plant
ever installed in the Dominion, as every i
economic device known to matiul'actur-
era of mining machinery will be contained in its make-up.
The B, C. Copper Co. want nothing i
but the best, and the Cooper Mfg. Co. j
will see that they get just what they j
want. James Sword, who formerly rep-
resented the company in this district, is
spendin n well-earned vacation in New ,
York.
Railroad from Edmonton to the Coast.
It is announced from Montreal that
Mackenzie & Mann have completed their
financial arrangements, und that a port
in British Columbia will be the terminus of another transcontinental railway j
much sooner than was generally expeet- t
ed. The line will be called the Edmonton, Yukon & Pacific railway, and will
run from South Edmonton in a north-
westerly direction through the Yellow-
head pass, through British Columbia,
and terminate on the Pacific ocean at
Port Simpson. The new arrangements
look to tbe completion of a great part of
the road the coming season.
The country around Edmonton is well
known to be extremely valuable, while
the section of British Coltlbia that will
he opened up is not unlikely to prove I
as rich In resources of every kind as the
portions of the province now accessible
to prospectors and agriculturits. The
connection of the new road with sections of line already constructed and
portions vet to be built, will eventually
make the railway a transcontinental
one.���Victoria Times.
The Row in Kentucky.
Governor Taylor has called out the
local militia and ordered them to make
ready to move to Frankfort. One company has refused to go unless ordered
by both governors. Political affairs in
Kentucky appear to be as badly mixed
up as in our own province, with the exception that in Kentucky the governor
feels the need of having troops behind
him, while in British Columbia he
thinks he is capable of running the
eountry unaided.

DEADWOOD
DEADWOOD, the latest town to seek public favor, is situated in the
heart of Deadwood Camp, about three miles from Greenwood, and an
equal distance from the B. C. Copper company's smelter. It is reached
by a spur of the Columbia and Western railway. It is surrounded by
such famous mines as the Mother Lode, Sunset, Buckhorn and Morrison,
which of themselves assure a Large Payroll, but exclusive of these there
are a hundred partially developed properties surrounding the town, many
of which will become paying mines, so that it does not require very much
foresight to decide that the Town of Deadwood will have in the near
future a sufficiently large payroll to support a city of some importance.

Premier Martin broke his pledge to him,
and enused the defeat of the redistribu-

disfranchised portions of the province
do not love Martin?

The Rio Tinto Mine.
F. \V. Peters has received a letter
from VV. A. Carlyle, formerly of tbe
British American company, at Rossland,
descriptive of some mines be is now connected with in Spain, which are owned
by La Compania de Rio Tinto, Limi-
tado. The letter was dated Feb. 12 at
Minas de Rio Tinto. Mr. Carlyle describes the country and climate as being
about the same as Southern California.
In speaking of the mine, he says:
"This mine is a monster. There are
130,000,000 tons of oro in sight, of which
we must extract ^,000,000 tons this year.
We have a very good railroad 375 miles
long with 30 locomotives on the main
line and 50 at the mine, and this year
we will handle 5,000,000 tons of ore
There are extensive underground
works. Tbe other day down on Ihe
1,200-foot level I was shown a solid body
of ore (100 feet wide. There are 10,000
Spaniards at work and tbey work every
bit as well and as hard at the men in
the west that we were paying lf3 50 a
day ; yet we only pay bere from 00 cents i
to 85 cents per day. 1 am well pleased
with the whole place. I hope labor
troubles are coming lo an end, and that
a prosperous year is now in sight for
British Columbia." Mr. Carlyle left
Kossland last November for the old
country, and from there went to Spain
to assume the management of the above
mine.���Nelson-Tribune.
Complete Surrender the Only Terms.
Tbe London Standard, which is in
closer touch with the policy of the government than any other ministerial organ, had the following on the morning
of the 10th: "We have reason to believe that an authoritative statement
will be made soon by the government
re-iillirming the impossibility of conceding to any terms to the Boer republics
which would involve a perpetuation of
the political and military Independence
that led to the present costly conflict."

"Flnnigan's" Alley,
A laughable comedy presented by the
Greenwood dramatic company on Wednesday night to a large audience in Miller's ball was a decided success. To say
that P. A. Jlillisus Larry Flnnigan was
the best character detracts none from
the ability shown by the others. Mrs.
i". A. Millis as Mrs. Kiunigan, and Alice
Hardy us Katy, were especially good,
nnd E. Geo. Mundy was all right in tbe
character of Dutch Jake. The play
throughout, was undoubtedly the best
exhibition of local talent yet given in
(ireenwood, and was deserving of the
patronage received.
Bid for Two Millions.
The mutual Life Insurance company
of New York, has subscribed for two
million pounds of the new Kuglish war
loan. The company at lirst offered to
take this amount outright, and even
now hopes to secure it. The offer of the
Mutual Life Insuurance company was
made before the books were officially
opened for subscription, and it it is believed stands today as the largest subscription for investment made in the
United States.
