BRUTAL FRANKNESS
Of Joseph Martin in His Treatment of Semlin.
His Castigation of the Government Silently Suffered.-Hon. D. W. Higgins' Explanation of His Defection.
VlOI/ORlA, Jan. 18.���(Special correspondence to Minkr.; The present
week has been remarkable iu political
circles from a number of causes, Joe Martin has at last launched his bolt against
the administration, and 11. \V. Higgins
has been obliged to explain why he
has again changed his flag. The principal points in Martin's speech have already been dealt with in telegraphic
messages to the Miner, but the bare details as given there, or even in a more
extended account, fail to convoy to the
reader an adequate conception of the effect which that attack produced upon
the House, (ireenwood visitors to the
gallery of the House, who have been fortunate enough to hear the venerable
premier address that body, will readily
recall his graceful utterances, and the
old world courtliness of his manner.
Premier Semlin was utterly incapable of
uttering a rude expression, and his failure as a leader indeed, is generally attributed to his lack of aggressiveness.
It seems the very irony of fate that
such a man should be singled out for
such a diatribe as the Legislature listened to the other day from the late Attorney-! ieneral. Joe was brutally frank.
He told the House and the galleries, for
il was tpiite evident that it was the latter to whom he was directing his remarks, that his late leader was utterly
incapable. He discussed his removal
from the Department of Lauds and
Works with the same callous indifference that a nigger teamster would refer
to tbe destruction of a mule, which had
Ov-nine incapable through age It can
safely be said that there was not a man
in the galleries, or even on the Opposition side, who was not. gliul when Joe
hud finished scourging his opponents.
Through it all the aged premier sat apparently unmoved, his head resting on
his hand, and bis eyed riveted upon the
face, of his quondam lieutenant.
Much comment has been made on the
fact that ihe members of the Government benches sat as dumb as cattle,
while ti.eir leader was being villainously
assailed. They now evidently believe
that, some explanation is necessary, for
both Ralph Smith and F. J. Deane went
to some pains yesterday ( when Martin
was not present) to explain that they
were so disgusted, that they decided to
treat Martin's remarks with the silence
of contempt. This is a plausible excuse
which will hardly be accepted by the
house or country, for those acquainted
-. with the respective abilities of the gen-
' tlemen named, will understand readily
enough that Messrs. Smith and Deane
manifested laudable discretion in keeping perfectly still.
The speech of Mr. Smith yesterday,
from which much was expected, fell
rather Hat, because of the absence of
Mr, Martin.    Little that  was new, or of
a very interesting cnivracter, was introduced, alt hough that Mr. Smith intended making it a memorable effort is
shown by his arrangement to have it
brought out in pamphlet form. The
reply of Mr. Higgins, lame and shallow
as it was, was listened to with much
greater interest, owing to its being his
first attempt at a public explanation of
his strange defection from the Government ranks. The principal reason advanced by the ex-Speaker was, that
when he found that the members of the
administration were approaching the
members of the Opposition for the purpose of forming a coalition Government,
he had come to the conclusion that the
Government had left him. This reference was, of course, to the proposal
which was made to II. D. Helmcken to
enter the cabinet, and it drew from the
premier the observation that in any negotiations entered into with Mr.
Helmcken, it bad been clearly understood that there was to be no departure
from the policy hitherto pursued by the
administration. The premier appealed
to Mr. Helmcken to bear out hi s state.
nient, but the jolly member from the-
city merely intimated that when the
proper time came he would make a
statement Iu that connection.
Mr. Cotton, who was to have spoken
yesterday, did not do it, as it is understood that he, too, is anxious to have
the ex-Attorney-General in his place
when he replies to him.

AN ENTENTE CORDIALE,
Evidently an Effort to Establish Mere Cordial
Relations.
From the proceedings of the council
on Monday evening, it was quite evident
that an effort wus made on both sides to
establish more cordial relations between
what was regarded lust year as two factions. There was a conciliatory spirit
apparent, and a dispositsou to give aud
take, which augurs well for the success
of the new council. If the supposition
be correct that a modus vivendi has
been reached, it is a matter for congratulation, and the MlNKll expresses the
hope that it will continue unbroken lo
the end of the chapter. The council
proceedings on the whole showed a desire to start out well, and to bury Ihe
blood-Stained hatchets of Inst year.
They wt'iv business-like all through, Il
is too early to predict with confidence,
because new brooms proverbially  sweep
clean; but bo far the outlook is promising. 	
CHILDREN 0E SCHOOL AGE.
An Effort to be Made to Bave Them Attend
School.
It is reported that there are a number
of children of school age, all in Greenwood, who do not attend school, and an
effort will be made to induce their parents to see that they do. The school
age is between seven and twelve inclusive, and attendance is compulsory.
There are now attending the new school
about 55 or (10 pupils, whereas, according to statements made by the old board
of trustees, there ought to be double
that number. Of course, the school is
most inconveniently located, and that is
a fairly good excuse for many in the
south end. An effort should be made to
secure an appropriation for a school
either in Anaconda, or in tin- smith end
of the citv.
The Mother Lode mine is preparing to
increase the force largely. The main
shaft is down 1125 feet and at the 300-
foot level a station is being cut out.
They are also making preparations to
install the cage, which is daily expected
to arrive. It will be 4'a.\5 feet in size.
The connection from the old workings
down to tbe 200 foot level has been completed. A very large plant will be installed in the spring. Mr Keffer is now
in New York completing arrangements.

In Swedish mines the blacksmiths
who sharpen the drills are paid by the
number of metres bored, and not by the
number of drills sharpened, or by the
day's work.
One of the most remarkable coinci-
cidences on record has come to light iu
Lynchburg, Va., and Augusta, (la. In
each city there is a Walter Clark, whose
father was named Samuel and whose
mother's maiden name was Walker,
both Walter Clarks have brothers
named Samuel and William, uncles
mimed Charles and John, and an aunt
named Elizabeth, Vet the men cannot
trace any relation between the two families.
A lode may be defined as a zone, belt
or body of quartz or other rock lodged in
the earth's crust, and presenting two
essential and inherent characteristics,
viz: 1, It must be held in place within
or by the adjoining rock; and, 2, it
must be impregnated with some of the
minerals or valuable deposits of which
cognizance is taken in the federal statutes relative thereto. The finding of
such a lode is a discovery within the
meaning of the statutes, and will authorize the location of a lode claim.
Last year in Vienna, S. L. Clemens
("Mark Twain") sat talking witli
u Scotch barrister named Guthrie.
"Do you ever smoke?" asked Mr. Clemens of Mr, Guthrie. 'Ves, Mr. Clemens," replied Mr. Guthrie, "when I am
in bad company." You are a lawyer,
aren't you, Mr. Guthrie?" "Yes, 1
am." "Ah," said Mr. Clemens, "you
must be a heavy smoker."
The following is told by the granddaughter of an old lady who lived iu
one of the Southern States, and one
who bad been known throughout the
neighborhood as one who bad a keen
sense of the ridiculous. After a long illness her linal hour was supposed to
have come, and her children and grandchildren gathered round fur a last farewell, when suddenly she opened her
eyes, and, on seeing the mournful expression of those about her, remarked
with all her old-time vigor: "The
watched pot never boils."
An old farmer who was iu tbe habit
of eating what was set before him, asking no questions, dropped into a cafe lot-
dinner. The waiter gave him the dill-
.'icr-cartl and explained that it was Ihe
list of dishes served for dinner that day.
The old gentleman began at the top of
the bill of fare and ordered each thing
in turn until be bud covered about one-
third of it. The prospect of what was
still before him was overpowering, yet
there were some things al the end that
he wanted to try. Finally he called the
waiter and, confidentially marking off
the spaces on the card with his index
finger, said : "Look here, I've et from
thar to thai', can I skip from tbar to
thai- and eat on to the bottom !"
Wu Ting Fang, the Chinese minister
at Washington, is a social favorite because of Ids genial humor and companionable ways. At a little dinner the
other night he had to answer a toast.
He began with a complimentary allusion to American ways, but said there
are a few things about Oriental civilization superior to our own. There bad
been some wretched weather that week,
and he turned to Willis Moore, the
Weather Bureau chief, who sat clcse
by. "For instance," he said, fiercely,
"we in China would long ago have nit
off this young man's head." It dazed ,
the company for a minute, but they
soon grasped the playful allusion to the
weather-maker and roundly greeted the I
remark.
iiy the death of the Duke of Westminster, who was England's richest
peer, Viscount Belgrave succoeds to the
title. He is now iu South Africa, acting
as aid-de-camp to Sir Alfred Milner, and
it is not likely that even thu Duke's
death will bring him home, as he does
not expect to return until the war is
ended. Viscount Belgrave, who, it is
said, will inherit a fortune of one hundred millions of dollars, is engaged to be
married to tlie beautiful Miss Delia
Cornwallis West, second daughter of the
still beautiful Mrs. Cornwallis West, and
younger sister of Princess Henry of
Pless, considered by many the most
beautiful woman in the world. The
fiancee of Viscount Belgrave, now twenty-six, is four years older than the viscount, and the late duke was opposed to
the engagement in consequence of the
disparity in the young peoples'ages. It
will be remembered that .Voting Cornwallis West, the brother of the future
Duchess of Westminster, wm- engaged
recently to Lady Randolph Churchill,
and that his family, including his sisters,
were so violently opposed to the match
that it has been broken off.
NEGOTIATIONS OFF.
Efforts    to   Effect  a Compromise  Between
Miners aad Mine Owaers Failed.
The efforts to reach a settlement of
the labor difficulty in the Slocan, says
the New Denver Ledge, has fallen Hat.
and, to use the words of the representative of the managers association, '-the
matter thus stands as it did before any
attempt was made for H compromise."
The delay in the negotiations that has
caused so much guessing during the
past month, will be explained when it
is remembered that the managers submitted their proposition to the Union
to pay hand-drillers $8.25 per day at the
time of Commissioner ('lute's visit, and
the Union was given until Dec. 27th to
formulate a reply. The reply was in the
form of a counter proposition, as follows :
Union Scale of Wages.

Machine men  II.oil
UaniinersnieiiindriftsiSc raises 3,60

No discrimination to In- made between
Union and non-union men.
Delegates from the Union to hvae the
privilege of visiting the various mines

The scale of wages not to be changed
by either parly without thirty days' notice.
The Associations' representatives replied to the Unions' proposition, under
date of Dec. 20th, as follows:
"Gentlemen,���Our communication of
December 23d was made by the Silver
Lead .Mines Association for the purpose
ol effecting a permanent settlement of
of the differences between us, and was
linal on our pail, as we consider thai we
met you more than hall way.
lu your counter proposition of the
27th inst. you do not agree to the c.om-
prompromise wage scale presented by
us, and deline lo sign even your OWE
scale for a longer period than thirty
days without notice, instead of one year
as we proposed. A thirty-day scale will
not inspire confidence in the permanency
of the settlement as we or the public desire; but on the other hand, will lead to
the belief that an early occurancc of the
existing differences is contemplated.
The mutter thus stands as it did before
any attempt was made for a compromise 1-'. A. Wood,

A YEAR'S BUILDING.
The MINER is able to present to-day
practically a complete list of the buildings erected in (ireenwood in 18911. Mr.
Robertson, architect, who has had supervision of a number of the buildings included in the list, was entrusted with
the task of preparing it, and his instructions were, as a practical man, to give
the details as nearly as possible in accordance with the facts. Of course, in a
matter of that kind, it is impossible to
get exact figures. The amounts are approximate; but it will be found that the
aggregate is under rather than above the
mark. The sum of $:��0,000 spent in
building in one year is a great record for
a city of the age and size of Greenwood.
Moreover, the demand seems to be increasing, especially for residential property. It, better than anything else, illustrates the progress we are making.
Referring to (Irand Forks, although
we dislike making comparisons, which
may smack of sectionalism, thu list contained in the Gazette for lH'JII foots up
$423,000. That, however, includes f250>
000 for the Grandby smelter, which, deducted, leaves $17:1,000, and that ia an
evidently exaggerated value. The Yale
hotel, for instance, is put in at $110,000,
while in the Greenwood list, the Armstrong is only put down at $18,000. It
also includes such items as the Merchants Bank of Halifax, $10,000, the
only work on which has been the preparing of the plans. The Greenwood
list only includes $10,000 so far for the
smelter. Deducting that it leaves $1110,-
000 for Greenwood as against $173,000
for Grand Forks, and as has been stated
the latter is grossly exaggerated as compared with the former. Tbe number of
buildings iu the Grand ForkB list is 35;
the number in Greenwood, large and
small, is 130. No one wiil dispute that
Grand Forks did well, but Greenwood
has done far better.
THE MUNICIPAL OUTLOOK.
The municipal elections were held
on Thursday of last week. There is
very little to say in addition to what has
already been said. It was an undoubted victory for Mayor Hardy and his
party.   The existence of parties in mu
nicipal politics is probably to be deplored, but as in the wider field of provincial and Dominion politics, dividing
lines seem to be inevitable. The new
council does not start in with an altogether clean sheet.; that, is to say, there
is an over-draft in tbe bank to be met,
and which has to be paid out of the
revenue of the current year. How
much of this might be avoided is difficult to say, but it is very evident that
in order to have public Improvements
theio must be corresponding expenditure. During tho year three or four
very necessary things were undertaken
���the grading and sidewalking of the
main streets, the construction of water
works for tiro protection, the equipment
of an efficient fire department, the building of the City Hall, and the acquisition
and improvement of a cemetety. These
have been of great benefit to Greenwood, and so far as can be judged the
work in connection with them has been
well and permanently done, and the
progress which (Ireenwood has made
during the last twelve moulds fully justify their undertaking. The present rato
of progress and prospects indicate necessary improvements and public works
on a much larger scale during the present year and the years inimediately following. The city has reached that stage
when it has become necessary to deal
seriously and scientifically with the sewage, and, furthermore, a pure and plentiful water supply is of the utmost importance. It seems quite inevitable,
therefore, that still larger outlays for
public improvements must be made this
year and the debt of the city materially
increased. In considering the liabilities
we must also consider the increased j
growth of the city and value of real estate, which we may assume will correspond with the increasing debt. If the
city is to grow we must face the responsibility which increased population involves, otherwise it will be impossible to
become a city of any Importance such as
we all predict, To quote our contemporary, "an increase of 8011 per cent, in
two years is a record which few cities
even in the west can boast." The observance of all due economy is, however,
very essential.

Where Joe Martin fell down was in
accepting the services of James Duns-
muir in going from Vancouver to Victoria by special boat and train iu order
to take part in the opening of the House.
Had he waited and gone over on the
Islander in the regular way, he would,
in all probability, have had the support of Macl'lierson, of Vancouver, and
the sympathy at least of a large element
of the labor party. On account
On of his apparent alliance
with tbe Dunsmuirs, whose name is an
abhorrence to the labor party, be has
lost MacpherSOll, and has estranged the
labor organizations. Martin's fault as a
politician has always been his precipitancy; and by another too quick step he
has lost his last opportunity in B. 0.

ALPHA AND OMEGA
Two Aldermanic Meetings on
Wednesday Evening.
The Mayor Holds Out the Olive Branch
���Alderman Galloway Wants More
Work Done by the Committees.
The old council met for the last time
on Monday evening, the Mayor, Aldermen Sutherland, Galloway, and Fisher
being present. The minutes were read
and the members retired to make room
for the aldermen-elect.
A. M. Whiteside, police magistrate,
was present and swore in the Mayor and
aldermen as follows: Mayor Hardy,
and Aldermen Sullivan, 0. Scott Galloway, James Sutherland, I). A. Banner-
man, P. P. Sharpe, and G. 11. Cropley.
The new members then took their seats
and proceeded to saw wood.
Mayor Hardy took pleasure in welcoming the new members to the board,
after a well fought and clean contest.
He referred to the work of last year,
stating that while there were differences
of opinion, they had all done the best
they could to advance the interests of
tbe city. There were many difficulties
they had to contend with. He hoped
the new members would not be backward about stating their views, for if
there was anything he liked it was a
man who could put up a good tight when
necessary. He would always be pleased
to give what assistance or advice be
could. It, would, be hoped, be their endeavor to do all they could In the interests of the city. Personally, he had no
fellings to vent, and no axes to grind.
He wanted to see the work proceed amicably.
Aid. Galloway said he had always believed that the best work was done in
committee, and if he had any criticism
regarding last year's council, it was that
that there was a laxity in that respect.
The committees should meet at least
once a week, and present a clear cut report on matters referred to I hem. These
reports should he acted on promptly,
A letter was received from the Provincial Secretary, stating that by an order-
In-eouncil the salary of I. II. Hallett, as
police magistrate, was fixed at $25 per
month. It appears that this formality
had never been attended to before.
Robt. Wood requested to be relieved as
arbitrator in the alley-way matter, as he
was going East. Jake llarrett applied
for the position of janitor of the new
City Hall. Referred to committee. J.
C. Haas wrote re obtaining a plot in the
cemetery for the A. F. A: A. M. order.
Referred to cemetery committee. Several accounts were referred to the finance committee.
The Greenwood Miner and Greenwood Times submitted a combined tender for the city printing and advertising. Received and filed. Porter & Cunningham advised the council that the
rate on the insurance on the City Hall
was according to the schedule of the
Board of Underwriters, $2.L'5, and the
rate of $2.00 written could not stand.
The difference was $15.
On motion of Aid. Galloway and
Sutherland, W. G. Gaunce was appointed arbitrator in the place of Robt.
Wood, in the alley-way matter. The
names of Messrs. Wickwire, Mowat,
Ketchum, Law, and C. M. Shaw were
suggested as umpire in case of disagreement.
Tbe   Mayor appointed  the following
committees:
Streets���Sutherland, Cropley and Galloway.
Finance���Bannerman, Sharpe, ��nd
Sutherland.
Water Works���Sharpe, Cropley, and
Sullivan.
Cemetery���Cropley, Sutherland, and
Galloway.
Scavenger ��� Galloway, Bannerman,
and Sullivan.
F'ire and Light���Sutherland, Hanner-
nian, and Sharpe.
The Mayor stated that the Electric
Light Company wanted to know what
number of arc lights the city wanted.
It was decided to ask for six lights, one
at the corner of Deadwood and Copper,
one at the corner of Greenwood and
Copper, and another at Dundee and
Copper streets, the others to be placed
where they would do the greatest good
to the greatest number.
The Mayor stated that license and police commissioners should be recommended to the Government. On motion of Aid. Galloway and Sullivan, the
present commissioners, James Sutherland and C. J. McArtliur, were named,
and the clerk instructed to wire their
names to the member for the district.
Hoard of License Commissioners
The License Commissioners met on
Monday in the court house at 10o'clock.
Present, Mayor Hardy, Alderman Sutherland, and 0. J. McArtliur.
In the case of the Greenwood hotel a
transfer was granted from D, M. Bon-
gard to Pickart & Simpson.
A license was granted to tho new Imperial hotel as soon as reported upon.
S. S, Miller asked leave to withdraw
his application for liicense, which was
granted.
A permit was granted to the Album-
bra hotel until the 15th of February,
carrying certain restrictions.
G. B. Parish, of the B. C. mine, was
in the city on Tuesday.

THE   GREENWOOD   MINER
A PRINTERS' UNION
Formed in Greenwood, and Organization Completed.
Sunday afternoon, at the Odd Fellows'
hall, a meeting of the members of the
Greenwood Typographical Union, No.
;if>8, was held for the purpose of installing officers and completing the permanent organization of the union. Arthur
I). Hill, of Phcenix, and ,1. II. Cnsgrove
and Norman llamly, of Grand Porks,
represented the out-of-town-printers.
There were also present a dozen city
printers, members of the new union.
,1. \V. Grier, the installing officer,
called the meeting to order. .1. \V.
Ellis and V. Carson, two new candidates, were initiated. The following officers were then elected and installed .
President, J VV. Grier, (ireeuwooil;
vice-president, ,1. I). Ilendrix, Greenwood; financial secretary, VV. II. Pierre,
Greenwood ; recording secretary, li, M.
Grace, Greenwood; treasurer, VV, S.
Harber, Greenwood; sergeant-ut-arins,
���I. VV. Ellis, Greenwood, and an executive composed of Fred VV. Grant and
Norman llamly, of Grand Forks, and
E. M. Grace and L. Keefe,  of this  city.
The following newspapermen were
made honorary members of the union:
Duncan Robb, Percy F. Godenratli, K.
E. Gosnell, and Dr. K. .Mathison, of
Greenwood ; F. 11. McCarter and John
R. Reavis, of Grand Forks ;K. M. Nisbet
of Columbia; and John Iloustou, of Nelson. A resolution was passed congratulating Mr. Houston on being elected
Mayor of Nelson, and also thanking him
for the stand taken by the Tribune on
the eight hour law.
Three applications were received for
membership.    There are eighteen active
members on the rolls.   The union will
meet in Odd Fellows hall every second
Sunday in each month. The newspaper
offices of the district will be notified by
the secretary of the scale of prices of the
union, and asking them to employ,
whenever, possible, printers having
cards. It is impossible under the rules
of the union to elect honorary members
who do not employ union men.
Strike in Central Camp.
Strikes have been made within the
last ten days on botli the City of Paris
and Lexington, iu Central camp. In
the City of Paris a line ore body of high
grade ore was encountered ill a drift
run south from a raise that bus for some
time been in progress from tbe 250-foot
level of tin* mine, When tlie raise was
within III leel of tlie surface u drift was
started south and an ore chute was run
into almost immediately And the drift
had continued ill this thirty feel up to
last Thursday when the news of the
strike was brought down to town A
lot of tbe ore was brought in by Joseph
Martin, of the City of Paris company,
and excited much admiration among
those who saw it. It is the characteristic high grade ore of the City of Paris
mine showing what are usually called
black sulpburets of silver, with some
gray copper. Much of Ibis ore will run
!fl(JU ton. The body is live feel wide,
and as the drift has been in it for thirty
feet, the chute is probably one of large
proportions. It now looks to be by far
the most important strike ever made on
the property
The sli-ikki on tbe Lexington was made
in the long tunnel now ill about 440 feet.
There litis been more or less ore all along,
but il bus never occured ill il large compact raasB until now. When Mr. Martin left on Thursday morning, it was impossible to Bay how wide the ore body
was, as tin- drift was just getting into it,
but the quality of the ore appeared to be
excellent.
They   expected   to begin shipments
I from the City of Paris to the Grandby
smelter January  1,  but there has been

Six Men Good and True, Tender Their Services
for Transvaal.
On .Monday six (Ireenwood citizens
authorized Mayor Hardy to tender their
services to the British Columbia Government to form part of the British Columbia contingent for the Transvaal. His
Worship accordingly telegraphed to the
Provincial Secretary as follows:
"Six select men in Greenwood volunteer to join the British Columbia contingent for service in tbe Transvaal."
The names of the volunteers are; A.
Shaw, VV. T. Robertson, II. A. Cousins,
K. A. Coulter, I). J. Grant, and K. 11.
Palmer. It is understood that a seventh name has been added to the list.
One cf tbe foregoing for eight months
served with the Texas Rangers, and all
of them are well qualified for service
physically and otherwise.
GRANITE AND BANNER.
Seized   by   Sheriff Elkins on Five Different
Writs.
The Camp McKiiiney Mines, Ltd.,
owning the Granite and Banner claims,
in Camp McKinney, is in serious financial difficulties. Some time ago the
Miner reported its closing down, and
it was understood then that trouble was
ahead. Deputy Sheriff Elkins has
seized the claims, a five-stamp mill and
an engine, under live writs of execution.
The Canadian Bank of Commerce is
owed a considerable sum, At the same
time the (loverninent authorities at Ottawa have instructed their McKinney
agent also to take possession of the mill.
It is a good property, and the stamp
mill has turned out a small amount of
bullion. Mismanagement is reported as
the cause of the present condition.
Hayes, the superintendent, went
East to float the company on n larger
scale, bill has evidently   not   succeeded.
He is at present in Montreal.

A recent mining company incorporation, of which (Ireenwood operators
are at the head, is the Mountain Chief
Mining & Milling Company, with headquarters at Chesaw, Wash. The company is formed to acquire the Mountain
Chief claim, in the Myers Creek district. It Is said to be one of the best
properties opened up there the past summer, and the company is pushing the
development. The directors are Phil
McDonald, president and manager;
Jerry Cameron, vice-president; James
Lindsay, secretary-treasurer, and Robt,
Wood and Jack Empey, directors.
The Cariboo mine, ill Camp .McKinney, has resinned shipping iu concentrates to the smelter, Superintendent
J. P. Keane is in town arranging for the
shipment of concentrates to the Hall
Mines smeller at Nelson. Two carloads
of concentrates have already been put
on board the cars. Until the Columbia
& Western is finished to Midway, the
company proposes continuing sending
down ore to this point.
A prominent strike is reported "" tbe
White Cloud, iu the north end of Graham's camp. In sinking the shaft on
the ore body the owners have run into
two feet of a paystreak that gave an average value of $22.50 in copper, and $3.50
in gold. Tbe shaft is down past 20 feet.
The owners are McCormick and Harper.

Hugh Kennedy, from Similkameen,
speaking of the Sunset, Copper Mountain, said: "When I was at Sunset
four days ago they had got down 100 ft,
with the shait. and were taking out the
finest copper ore I ever saw. It was
bornite and chalcopyrite. The showing
in the shaft has grown better from the
start, and I should say 40 per cent, of all
they are taking out is pure copper. This
is about all I can say. It is ns fine as it
could be."
T. Parkinson, president of the Pathfinder, has gone to Kossland to purchase
a plant for the Pathfinder mine. The
plant will be a complete one in every
respect, and when installed will be as
good as any in tie Boundary country.
Mr. Parkinson has a force of men erecting a large and substantial shaft house
over the workings on the new strike recently made. The building is 35x00,
and constructed of corrigated iron.
Messrs. Weeks & Hogan, proprietors
of the Imperial hotel, Plnenix, have dissolved partnership, Tommy Hogan retiring. Mr. Weeks will continue the
business at tha old stand.

BUILDING   IN   1899
$320,000 is High Water Mark
for the Year.
Careful Enumeration of all the Resi-
idences and Business Blocks.���Big
Demand for Dwelling Houses.
The year just closed lias been the most
prosperous in the history of Greenwood.
In fact the total of its progress is greater
than that of all the years preceding.
Great activity waa witnessed in even-
line of industries and the demand (or
business blocks and residences has kepi
the architects and builders very busy, as
will be Been by the following list of
buildings erected during the year 18911.
The prospects for this year are even better. There are a number of business
blocks under way and several large
structures in brick and wood are contemplated. There is also a large demand for modern finished cottages for
which a good rental can be obtained.
The facilities for building in (Ireenwood
are now adequate to all emergencies, as
the line of material industry has improved ten times at least- A very careful estimate of the value of buildings erected gives the surprising total of
$320,000. The similar statement for
last year showed a total of $69,200,

L. P. Eckstein, barrister, Grand

other. For instance, he thinks, iu the
matter oi the Supreme Court registry
that there should be one in each place,
and that both places should unite in
aBking for il. By both pulling for it
against the other,   neither  will   get it.

school arrangements,   ^tm^mmmm^m^^mmmmm^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
As Discussed at the Meeting of Boari ol School
Trustees.
There was a meeting of the school
board on Wednesday evening, at which
after .outine business was disposed of,
two important matters were deaii with
Ono was tba non-attendance of :; number of children of school age. i 1 was decided to request (be chief of policu to report as many cases of absentees us came
within his notice, and to notify the parents. It may not be generally understood that attendance a certain number
of days in the year is compulsory; and
the importance of the law being enforced in a city like (ireenwood ia very
evident. The other matter was Ihe desirability of tbe government? providing
for increased accommodation in tba
forthcoming estimates. Tbe present
school building will accommodate about
120 pupils at the outside. At the present
rate of progress there will be double
that number within a year. In this connection it was thought much belter to
recommend another school being built
in a central location rather than increasing the size of tbe present building,
which is away from the population altogether. The new building, if erected, could be used as a primary school
while the present would be suitable for
the more advanced scholars. Recommendations to that effect will be made
by tin school hoard.
