 THE GREENWOOD MINER

Vol. 1, No. 26.
GREENWOOD, B. C, FRIDAY, JULY 28, 1899.
$200 Pei Tear.
MARTIN BOWLED OUT
His Exciting Ministerial  Career Cut Short.
Cotton Carries the Caucus all His
Way���Fighting Joe Deserted by His
Followers but Will Fight to a Finish.
Special to the Miner.
Vancouver, B. C, July 27.���Attorney-
General Martin has resigned to-day.
YV. W. B. Mclnnes, M. P., son of the
Lieutenant-Governor, is said to be his
probable successor.
At the Government caucus last
night in Victoria, Martin stood practically alone. Only three of the Government supporters in the Legislature were
absent from the meeting. Hot passages
occurred between Cotton and Semlin on
one side and Martin on the other.
When the meeting opened Martin had
six on his side.
The whole of the Government's policy was discussed. Cotton urged that if
they divided as now shown, the Government must go to smash. The six
followers of Martin then deserted hjm,
fearing a general election and its attendant risk. Martin took his defeat
calmly, and says he will fight to the
end.
[Tlie above is an historic dispatch, or
will become so. It is the first telegraphic press dispatch to be received in
Greenwood, and contains very important news. A private dispatch to the
editor states that an entirely new deal is
on. Particulars are not available yet,
and may not be for some days. The outcome of the caucus is very much as anticipated. Martin is out of office, but
not dead by any means.���Ed.]
ADDITIONAL  LOCALS.
\
F. Lewin, of the Bank of B. N. A.,
has been removed to the hospital, suffering from a low fever.
Matt, the foreman of the rock cutting
on the Deadwood branch line of the C.
P. R., has had a 8Q0-1I). blast of powder
ready to shoot for some days. At the
first trial the fuse burned out, and Matt
is now waiting for a convenieut opportunity to surprise the town.
G. A. McNaughton, Huntingdon,
Que., who traveled West with the
Grandby smelter people, is in Greenwood.
A large force of men are at work on
the Cariboo in Camp McKinney. New
ground is being opened up and new machinery installed
The Midway Advance is authority for
the statement that the C. P. R. engineers have discovered a new and feasible
route for a railway over the divide between the Kettle and Okanogan River
valleys to the south of Camp McKinney.
W. C. Fox, of Fox & Ross, mining and
investment brokers, Toronto, and Donald Ross, son of A. W. Ross, Columbia,
were in Greenwood Wednesday and
Thursday on their way to Camp McKinney. Mr. Ross is secretary of the Sailor
Company, and is interested in other
properties. On his way out he will
visit the celebrated Golden Cache.
F. W. G. Fitzpatrick, secretary and
manager of the Birbeck Investment, Security & Savings Co., Toronto, and Thos.
Long, vice-president, and a director of
the Merchants Bank, spent several days
in Greenwood this week. They are
both exceptionally well pleased on account of the substantial appearance of
the place and business-like methods of
the people. This good impression is all
the more important from the fact that
their mission here was practically to
look over and report on the field as one
for investment.
J. B. McArthur. it is understood, is
laying out a townsite to be known as
New York, north of and on the Brooklyn, Phoenix,
J. Empey, Spokane, representing
South African Brown, and Mr. Stephens,
a mining man, also of Spokane, have returned from a visit to West Fork, where
they were examining properties. J. Con-
nick, Spokane, who went up to West
Fork with Empey and Stephens is still
there looking after development work.
Messrs. D. H. Beecher, Grand Forks,
N. D., and W. F. Honey, Park River,
N. D., both prominent business men of
that state, are in the city. Last evening
they attended a meeting of the Boundary Homestake Co., in which they are
largely interested. The Homestake has
just been incorporated and last evening
was formally organized. The officers
elected are: President, D. M. Mcintosh, Winnipeg mine; Vice-President,
J. R. Riordan, Spokane; Treasurer, D.
H. Beecher, President of the Union National Bank, Grand Forks, N. D.; Secretary, Ansel Bates, of the Winnipeg
mine. Directors: E. J. Dyer, president
of the Exchange National Bank, Spokane ; P. Harris, M. E.; D. A. Cameron, manager Bank of Commerce; and
G. E. Towle, cashier of the First National Bank, Park River, N. D.
THE KNOB HILL FOLK
Came Down From Phoenix to
See Greenwood.
Interesting Interviews With Several
Members of the Party���Some Particulars of What is Proposed.
Rushing It Through.
W. F. Tye, chief engineer of the Columbia & Western, returned yesterday
from Penticton, after having seen the
C. P. R. officials to that point on their
way to the coast. With reference to
the line westward, he said it was now in
sight of Cascade, and at that point their
difficulties were practically over with.
Two weeks later tho steel would be laid
to Grand Forks. Freight would be delivered to Cascade almost immediately,
and as soon after as possible, passenger
trains would be running. Mr. Tye
thought that passenger trains would be
running to Grand Forks by the first of
September, and one month later into
Greenwood.
For the first part of the line the difficulties were very great owing to the
number of bridges, and the inability to
get material on the ground. Everything towards their construction had to
be brought in over the track as it was
laid. It was practically impossible to
build more than one bridge at a time,
and progress was necessarily slow. The
track for nearly the whole way was in
the air, and getting material up to it
even if it were available was out of the
question. The company was rushing
the work with all possible speed.
This city, during the past week, has
been visited by a very large number of
mining men and capitalists, who either own large interests themselves or
represent large interests. Probably the
most important combination of mining
men were the shareholders and directors in the Old Ironsides and Knob Hill
mines and the Grandby smelter. The
first detachment arrived in the city on
Saturday, consisting of A. L. White,
Montreal, Secretary of the company,
E. M. Carroll and wife, New York, and
Gordon Stevens, director of the Eastern
Townships bank, Waterloo, Que. They
went on to Camp McKinney, and returned on Tuesday. These gentlemen
spoke in the most enthusiastic way
about the prospects of this section of the
country, and are especially well pleased
about properties in which they are
more particularly interested.
Mr. Carroll, who is a mining investor
of New York, said he had visited nearly
all the mining camps of the West, and
was interested in many of them, and
while not wishing to draw comparisons,
was free to say that the showings in the
Boundary country were the most remarkable he had ever seen in his life.
It would be simply impossible to estimate the wealth that would be produced. It is a great copper camp, and
copper was still in the ascendency as a
mineral, and would continue to be in
his opinion. The wonderful advancement of electricity and development of
electrical appliances in which copper
was used would keep demand in advance
of supply, and lie did not think aluminum or any other substance was likely
to take its place. The only element of
danger he foresaw was the development,
of labor troubles through the eight-hour
law and similar legislation. In his opinion, if labor continued to organize
against capital so as to render its operations unremunerative, there was only
one way out of it, that was for capital to
organize against such efforts on a larger
scale, and he deprecated any tendency
to bring these two forces into conflict.
On Wednesday another section of the
party arrived in the persons of S. H. C.
Miner, president of the company, Mrs.
Miner, and Miss Miner, Grandby, Que.;
W. S. Farwell, General Manager of the
Eastern Townships Bank; H. B. Brown,
Q. C, of Sherbrooke, Que.; W. H. Robinson, Grandby; F. C. Graves, Spokane,
and W. C. Flummerfelt, Victoria, manager of the Ames, Holden Co., Victoria.
They came down from Phoenix in the
morning "and remained until five o'clock  in the afternoon.
The Miner representative had a long
talk with Mr. Miner respecting the district and the interests represented by
himself and his friends. He first of all
expressed his pleasure at the very satis
factory progress he observed in Greenwood since a year ago, and had no reason to doubt that it would fully come
up to the expectations of the citizens in
the future. He was especially pleased
with the substantial character of the
buildings in course of erection. The
more substantial, the better for the
safety of the town. In this connection,
he said there was so much wealth in the
country, and each town had so many
special advantages of its own that it was
foolish for any jealousy to exist. There
was room for all. While he believed in
honest rivalry, he did not believe in
foolish opposition to each other. His
own company took no sides whatsoever,
and went along and developed their
properties irrespective of local or real
estate interests with which they had no
concern. What they did was in the
best interests of their own business.
Referring to the properties of the company, he said a persistent and continuous policy of development was the
course they intended to pursue, and
when they put their hand to the plow,
it was not with the intention of holding
back. When they undertook to develop
a property they did so. So far the success of their efforts was wholly satisfactory to them. They had great bodies of
ore in sight and by the time the smelter
was erected they fully expected to have
sufficient to keep it running continuously. An acre of ore was blocked out in
the Old Ironsides alone. They would
ship from the tunnel of the Knob Hill,
and were^developing all their properties.
The output of all these together with
the product of the many other mines in
in the district that were putting in machinery would create an industry the effect of which could hardly be appreciated at the present time. There was
room for more than one or two smelters.
The company has six claims in the
Greenwood camp, the Knob Hill, Old
Ironsides, Etna, Fourth of July, Phoenix, and Victoria. These would be all
worked from the same shaft with a
series of compressors. The company
was installing on the Ironsides, or rather
intended to, a 10x15 hoist with an 80 h. p.
boiler, which was on the way. A shaft
house would be built to house a two-
compartment shaft capable of sinking
to the 1000-foot level. The company he
said wsiH erecting fourteen houses for
the employees, a residence for the manager, bunk house, etc. It was the intention to provide for the accommodation of 200 men. The railway was being
graded to the mines, and would be completed simultaneously with tlie main
line to Greenwood.
The company also owned and were
developing the California, Muscat and
Snowshoe at Rossland, and the City of
Paris, Lincoln and Majestic in White's
camp. All of these were showing up
satisfactorily. Mr. Miner and party will
be in the Bonndary camps for some days
yet. 	
Mr. Hall, of Hall & McDonald, who
left here over a year ago for Dawson is
in town. He left Dawson City on the
8th of July, and made a quick trip out.
Dave and Alex Beath have just returned from the West Fork, where they
have been doing development work on
the Atlantic Cable. They report a big
strike having been made on a claim an-
joining the Highland Lass on Beaver
creek, by Spokane parties. There are
five feet of galena ore.
mmmm THE   GREENWOOD   MINER.
Friday, July 28, 1899.
BOARD OF ALDERMEN.
The Spokesman-Review Proposition
to advertise Greenwood ��� A new
City Engineer appointed���A Grist of
By-Laws on hand.
Regular meeting of the Council was
held on Monday night with Mayor
Hardy, Aldermen Galloway, Wood,
Cameron and Sutherland preBent.
A letter was read from the representative of the Spokesman Review making
a proposition to the city to publish for
$900 an advertisement for two months
together with 10 columns a month of
reading matter.
Another letter was read from A. C.
Gait, Rossland, asking for more information re the debentures.
Mr. Baker, representing the Spokesman-Review, was then heard at the
Council Board, with reference to the
proposition contained in the letter in
question. He spoke for some time and
made what is known in familiar parlance
an a "good talk." He was thanked
on motion of Alderman Wood, and informed that his letter and talk would
have careful consideration later on.
Later on, however, there was no time
for discussion, and consideration was
postponed for one week.
The following accounts were reported
upon by the Finance committee and ordered paid: C. W. Edwards, $144.29;
Hunter & Kendrick, $4.47 ; B. C. Times,
$19.50; W. M. Law & Co., 2.75; C. J.
McArthur, $5; Palmer & Hunter, $54.10;
OlBen & Phelan, $2; C. W. H. Sansom,
$135.
An application from C. F. Alston,
M. E., for the position of city engineer
was read, and also a number of very
flattering testimonials. Upon motion
Mr. Alston's application was accepted,
and he was duly appointed in the place
of the late occupant of the office.
The following resolution was then
read and unanimously adopted:
"Whereas, the rapid growth of the
Boundarv district has made it indispensable that a resident Supreme Court
Registrar Bhould be appointed and regular sittings of the Surreme Court held
in the district, and
"Whereas, Greenwood is both the
most central and most populous place
in the district,
"Be it therefore resolved, that
this council call the attention of
the Government to the urgent need of
appointing a Supreme Court Registrar
at Greenwood.
"And that a copy of this resolution
be forwarded to the Honorable the Attorney-General by the clerk."
The aldermen then took up the bylaws which were still under way, quite
a batch in all.
No. 28 was a bylaw to license and regulate the business of plumbing in the
city. It provides for a board of examiners, consisting of the city engineer,
the health officer and the city plumber.
These men examine all journeymen
plumbers, who have to pay a fee of $1.
Plumbing establishments pay a license
of $5 per six months. In addition to
that all the contracts have to be submitted to the city plumber for approval,
who also sees that contracts are carried
out according to the city bylaws. Council went into a committee of the whole
on this, but got tired after a while and
rose and reported progress.
No. 27 was a bylaw to regulate plumbing and sanitary arrangements in the
city, in which were defined the requirements of plumbing, etc., being a sort of
sequel to the bylaw just read. It was
read a third time.
Bylaws 25  and 26 which  had  been
read a third time before, were reconsidered and finally passed.
The Treasurer reported that Aid.
Sutherland had refused to accept payment of $4 for his printing account, as
the printing had been ordered from his
foreman without his knowledge.
Before adjourning, His Worship pointed out the necessity of filling the vacancies on the aldermanic board. He was
tiied of the difficulties of obtaining a
quorum. Each man promised to do
what he could in that respect.
A Foothold in Phoenix,
With the characteristic energy and
zeal of the pioneer missionaries, Revs.
R. W. Trotter and B. H. Balderston
have decided to establish themselves in
Phoenix. On Tuesnay they went up
there and made arrangements to hold
services on a joint, non-denominational
basis and to build a building for the
purpose to cost about $400. Towards
this end they secured the co-operation
of the Ironsides Co. Mr. Miner, the
president, subscribed $100 and promised
that the company would build a building of their own next summer for the
purpose of holding divine services. The
company will also erect an emergency
hospital there.
A CBEDITABLE BLOCK.
Rendell & Co's. New Block Practically Completed and Occupied.
What is probably the finest business
block in the Boundary is in Greenwood,
and will be known as the Rendell block.
It is practically completed, the finishing
touches depending upon the arrival of
the railway to bring in the pressed
steel and the plate glass. The whole
building of three stories will be occupied from cellar to attic.
It is hardly necessary to state that
the building is on the corner of Copper
and Greenwood streets, 100 by 50 feet in
surface dimensions and three stories
high. Completed, the cost will be $18,-
000 or over. On the first floor is Rendell & Co's. store, with the Bank of
Montreal on the corner. On the second
floor are offices entirely, which will be
occupied by Pringle & Whiteside, Keith
& Ketchum, the C. P. R. offices, J. E.
Leckie, M. E., F. W. Groves, P. L. S.,
and two others whose names are not
given. The third story is occupied by
the Greenwood club, whose quarters
are described elsewhere.
The exterior of the building will be
covered with pressed steel in imitation
of stone, and the interior with pressed
steel also, but very artistically decorated.
The best effects are to be found in the
Bank of Montreal offices, which are calculated to make all the other Bank
managers in the country envious. The
fittings are of the best, and the decorations have had special attention paid to
them.
The bank premises are ready to be occupied. In the rear and in the basement is located the wholesale liquor department. The Rendell block was begun last December, and has been more
or less under construction ever since.
It will be heated in the most modern
way throughout, the heat being supplied
by a hot blast system of furnace, fans
and ducts, which are guaranteed to convey warmth to the uttermost part of
the premises.
Corbin's Telegraph Line.
The Spokane and Northern Telegraph
company is to make some important extensions into the Boundary Creek country. When D. C. Corbin sold his system to the Great Northern company,
he retained the telegraph line, which
runs  from  Spokane to Rossland, and

from Northport to Nelson. When he
applied for charters for a railway and a
telegraph line into the Boundary Creek
country, the former was refused and the
latter granted him. Tlie line will be
constructed from Marcus, where connection will be made with the line running to Rossland, Nelson and Spokane.
It will be extended to Cascade, Grand
Forka, Columbia, Greenwood and Midway. From tire latter point it will be
extended down the Kettle river to Curlew and thence to Republic. The latter
place will thuB be given direct communication with the leading Boundary points.
The Spokane Falls & Northern already
has telegraphic connection with Republic by a line that stretches along the
Marcus-Republic road. It is claimed
that this line will be abandoned as soon
as the one via Curlew is constructed,
for the reason that it is built over the
mountain range and is difficult to keep
open during the winter. It is expected
the new lire wil be ready for business
inside of a month.���Rossland Miner.

Y
LOCAL   JOTTINGS.
The Presbyterians have started a
church building in Cascade. It will
cost $850.
The plans of the Greenwood Baptist
church have been completed, and tenders for construction asked for.
The date of the issuing of the Miner
has been changed from Saturday as
formerly to Friday.
There have been a great many tickets
sold for the benefit conceit and lecture
in aid of the Greenwood Fire Department. Major Ro'ss, who has charge of
the entertainment, will lecture on
"Humanity," The band will be in attendance.
Rev. Ralph Trotter, who has been
prevented by illness from paying his
regular pastoral visits to Greenwood,
occupied the pulpit Sunday in Barrett's
hall. His subject in the morning was
"Religion for the Age," and in the
evening, "Signs/if the Times."
The dance in Rendell's hall on Monday night was well attended.
A. G. Simpson, auditor, Greenwood,
has accepted a position in Phoenix as
book keeper for the firm of Wynkoop &
Stephens, general merchants, and left
on Tuesday to be installed in office. On
the way up, however, he accidentally
dropped his watch and chain, just
where the trail joins the main road.
Any person finding them will be duly
rewarded by leaving them at this office
Rev. B. H. Balderston will preach in
Barrett's hall, on Sunday at 11 a. m. and
7:30 in the evening.
Eholt townsite will in all probability
be placed on the market during the
coming week.
Messrs. Mowat and Palmer, mining
and real estate brokers, have dissolved
partnership. As will be seen by the
advertisement elsewhere Arthur Mowat
continues the business.
R. B. Dixon, representing the Rossland Miner, is in the city in the interests of that paper.
A. B. Macneill, principle of the Victoria West school, Victoria, is in the
city. He is on a vacation trip, coming
in by way of Ponticton, and will go out
via Bossburg.
C. F. Costerton, Vernon, and J. H.
Poff, Vancouver, came into Greenwood
-this week by way of Penticton, and are
here in the interests of their insurance
business.
There will be a strawberry festival
and ice cream social���the first of the
season���in the new Methodist church
and on the grounds about it, Tuesday
evening next, August 1. The committee of arrangements promise the best of
strawberries and cream, and the coldest
ice cream, for "two bits" a plate each.
Since last week a further rich strike
has been made on the Royal Victoria
property, North Fork, at the 100-foot
level, At present the vein of the new
strike is about two feet wide. In this
connection it may be stated that in the
fast issue of the Miner describing this
property, the assays were stated as running all the way up to "$10.40," whereas it should have boen $1040.
It is understood that F. J. Finucane,
manager of the Bank of Montreal, has
purchased the Imperial Hotel block and
four lots for $12,500. The property has
a frontage of 50 feet on Copper street.
This is one of the most important real
estate deals that has taken place in
Greenwood, and is the best possible indication of faith in Greenwood by those
who are in a position to judge of its future.
It iB reported that the. Bank  Ville
Marie of Quebec has suspended. It
would, therefore, be wise to bear this in
mind in receiving bank bills.
Howard Chapman, Victoria, representing Ames, Holden & Co., and the
Grandby Rubber Co., was in town, this
week. W. C. Flummerfelt, manager of
the former company, was also in town,
having come in with the other shareholders of the Ironsides and Knob Hill
mines.
Telephone connection will be completed to Camp McKinney in a few days.
F. Keffer, manager of the Mother
Lode, is being visited by his father and
two sisters of Columbus, O.
W. S. Topping of Trail, and Ross
Thompson of Rossland, the well known
"fathers" of their respective towns,
were in Greenwood during the early
part of the week.
John East, one of the pioneer prospectors of these camps, was in town the
other day, having returned from the
West Fork district. He reports the
prospects on James Creek as showing
up well, and regards that district as a.
coming mining camp of importance. His
claims there adjoin the Joe Dandy,
which is owned by S. M. Barrett, and
which is being developed into a property of promise. There are a good many
people going in, and at Cottonwood
creek free gold is being reported as being found.
A party consisting of R. G. Edwards-
Leckie, Republic; A. McKay Dick, B.
C. mine; Hugh Baker, Rossland; Alex
Dick, Rossland; and P. A. O'Farrel,
correspondent at large, rode into Greenwood on Tuesday evening and remained
over until the following afternoon.
They came in by way of Rossland and
visited the B. C. mine and other properties on their way in. They made a visit
to several of the camps, and went on to
Republic. Mr. O'Farrell, the well
known syndicate correspondent, will
give his impressions of the Boundary
camps in the various newspapers represented by him. He said the thing
that impressed him most about the
whole Boundary district, as to its future,
was the amount df railway construction
going. It was a remarkable expenditure of money and energy, and meant
something substantial.

The Best INVESTMENT
Back From Similkameen Country.
A. E. Bielenberg, Thos Roadley, and
M. E. Miller have returned from the
Similkameen, whither they went last
week to look at some properties. Their
objective point was the headwaters of
the Keremeos and Twenty-Mile creeks.
Mr. Bielenberg reports large bodies of
arsenical iron ore with copper sulphides.
These are purely surface showings, with
a width of at least fifty feet. The party
saw a good many claims of similar character, all looking well. A large number
of people are going in, and it is likely to
bebecom the Mecca of mining men and
prospectors. There are some excellent
showings of free milling ore.
Mr. Bielenberg would express no opinion as to the value of the camp, other
than to say that if the valueB were good,
and everything depended on that, the
large bodies of ore in existence there
would undoubtedly bring the camp to
the fore as a very promising mineral
producer.
The camp has already attracted the
attention of prominent mining men.
On the Twenty-Mile creek, Marcus Daly
is developing a property known as the
Nickel Plate. Forty men are engaged
in sinking a shaft in arsenical iron ore.
Orr Keremeos Creek, Geo. R. Naden
and associates are working on a property, the ore in which carries considerable
gold.
In REPUBLIC CAMP in 1896 was the Republic Gold Mining Co.
We were then selling this stock at 8 and 10 cents per share; today
this same stock is worth $3.75 PER SHARE. A thousand shares
in 1896 sold for $80 to $100; TODAY IT IS WORTH $3,750. THE
BEST INVESTMENT in Republic Camp today is the ADMIRAL
��� ���_��� DEWEY GOLD MINING COMPANY.    This company  owns
��������� four claims, located west of the Republic properties.   We are
W      ��� now sinking a shaft to the depth of 50 feet on the surface and it
ASSAYS FROM $1.60 to $31 IN GOLD. This stock is now selling at 7 cents per share, and we predict that inside of six months
thiBsame stock will sell 75 CENTS TO ONE DOLLAR PER
SHARE.   For further particulars call on or address,

NOT   IN   OPPOSITION.
The Rossland Record in a kindly mention of this paper under new management assumes that because the editor
was dismissed from office by the present Government the Miner will be
in opposition. This is a misconception
of fact as well as of what ought to constitute the guiding principle of a newspaper. The Miner has no quarrel with
the Government on personal grounds.
On the other hand, notwithstanding
any private grievances the editor might
have, it would be prepared to support
the present administration, if its general
policy justified support. It may be
freely admitted, too, that in some respects the Government at Victoria has
merited commendation on account of
its legislation, and possibly on account
of Borne administrative acts. On the
whole, however, the course it has pursued has met with anything but general
approbation. It has been more or less
a failure, and the feeling of the country
for Home time has been that it could not
last. The old administration in its
darkest days was never so unpopular.
There are several good reasons to account for failure. There was lack of
political experience to begin with. Only
one member of the Cabinet, the Hon.
Jos. Martin, had ever had any experience at all in public affairs; and that
gentleman's record had not been such
as to inspire confidence in the permanency of an administration in which he
was a dominant factor. He is overflowing with what has been termed mischievous energy, and has always been a disturbing element in public life. An Ottawa correspondent in a happy inspiration described him as "the stormy
petrel of Canadian politics."
There was, too, a lack of cohesion.
In the cabinet stood two men with a
common ambition to be leaders, but
diametrically opposed in temperament,
in method and to each other. The other members were, while personally
honest and well meaning, simply passive instruments in the hands of selfish,
unscrupulous, designing men of more
than average ability. Nothing else under the circumstances could have transpired than has actually come to pass.
A stream cannot rise higher than its
source and the spectacle witnessed today of warring Cabinet Ministers in
veighing against each others character
holds the mirror up to nature as nothing else can. Private advices from Victoria state that the Hon. Jos. Martin has
returned from Denver, Colorado, where
he has been investigating Mr. Cotton's
record there before coming to British
Columbia, and a Vancouver correspondent states the evidence is of a most
damaging character. We are therefore
likely to be subjected to a long political
washing day, in which a lot of very dirty
linen will be exposed to public view.
With amateurs at the helm of state,
and the crew divided, undisciplined and
mutinous, the result has been what
might have been expected. We have had
crude, hasty and badly digested legislation forced on the country, and a series
of administrative acts lacking foresight,
deliberation or guiding principle���many
of them arbitrary, harsh and unjust.
As stated in a previous article the Government was really not the choice of the
people. It is an aggregate evolved by a
series of political accidents. Dr. Mc-
Kechnie is President of the Council because he represented an Island constituency opposed to the Dunsmur influence; Hume is Minister of Mines because he represented a mining constituency, and that, too, as is well known,
against his own wishes; Semlin is Premier because neither Martin nor Cotton
at the time was a possible leader, and
he was nominally leader of the old Opposition ; Cotton and Martin represented Vancouver, the principal hotbed of
Opposition, and were too able and unscrupulous to be left out. At the very
outset it owed its birth and political being to a violent abuse of constitutional
methods.
As it was, however, if the members of
even the present Government, with
their palpable weaknesses, lack of experience, and unequal abilities, had gone to
work with a sole view to the public interests rather than the ambitious exploitation of the opportunities for personal or political advancement, they
would have won the favor of the people
and succeeded. No' Government ever
had a better opportunity to make a
record for itself.
It is, therefore, now not a question of
opposition. There is really no Government to support or oppose. It was a
house divided against itself and it has
fallen. As at present constituted it
connot survive. A general election is
imminent. If Martin goes Cotton will
likely go with him. They are both
more or less equally responsible for the
deplorable condition of things, and with
the exposure of Mr. Cotton's own record which Martin is now likely to make,
the verdict of the people will be that
both should go. If a government can
be reconstructed out of the various political elements, which is strong" enough
to deal with the affairs of the country
as they should be dealt with at this
critical period, the Miner in its humble
way will support it, irrespective of personal considerations. Or, if, in the
event of a general election, such an administration can be formed out of available material, new or old, it will have
the generous support of the people as a
whole. They are tired of political pot-
latching. We may never expect to get
an incorruptible Government; but it
is quite possible to have a good, business,
common sense administration imbued
with a proper sense of the needs and requirements of the country. Cotton's or
Martin's personal quarrels or their ambitious aims are neither here nor there.
It is high time to saw wood.
SPOKANE   INDUSTRIAL    EXPOSITION.
WThile the Paris  Exposition  is  un
doubtedly the most important exhibition at which to be represented, yet the
Fair in which the Boundary country has
the greatest interest is at Spokane. It will be the one towards being
represented at which the strongest effort will be made. Spokane is now the
center of the mining of the Pacific
Northwest, and our mining men feel
more at home there, and will be classed
with exhibitors belonging to a common
mining fraternity, because in mining
there is really no international boundary lines to consider. It will be a
gathering at which all the practical
mining men of the country will be represented and which to this district will
be of much more immediate benefit
than the exhibit at Paris, although in
other respects the latter is of very great
importance. At Spokane, however, we
shall be in a peculiarly homelike atmosphere, and there is not the slighest
doubt of it that in a huge representation of ore products from the Northwest
tlie Boundary Creek district and tlie interior of B. C. will be conspicuous and
unsurpassed in the excellence and great
variety of their specimens. It is to
this end that our people must work.
We only require to be adequately represented to be easily in the lead.
So far as can be ascertained, the show
is going to be the best of years, and
every preparation is being made to ensure success. The Miner is informed
that $7,000 alone will be spent in music,
the Grand Army band of Canton, O.,
having been engaged for the occasion.
The band consists of forty pieces, and
includes Nolan aud Pierce, two of the
greatest cornet soloists in America.
The exposition will take in fruit, stock,
mining and mining machinery. Mining,
however, will be a distinctive feature,
and for this purpose $2,600 is being
raised by citizens outside of the exhibition management altogether. A model
mine is under consideration, and a 5-
stamp mill will be on the ground and
put on practical milling tests. The object of the directorate is understood to
be that everything should be on as practical a'basis as possible.
The mining machinery exhibit will no
doubt be one of great interest and value,
as several of the largest eastern firms
will be represented with complete plants
of their own manufacture. Mining men
will, therefore, be able to see tho best
and most modern machinery under circumstances favorable for comparison.
There will also be gasoline and electric-
automobiles, which will excite a great
deal of interest as the coining means of
locomotion.
A good deal has been said about the
drilling contests in relation to the terms
and conditions. This is not a matter of
very great interest to mine owners. It
is, however, a matter of considerable interest and of some importance to the
miners. The conditions as originally
announced without explanation, were
certainly subject to some criticism, and
we think that the managers might yet
modify them. Of course, it is understood that all the entrance money goes
to make up the various prizes, but at
the same time $100 is too much for teams
that have to go, say, from Boundary or
Republic. Their additional expenses
will at least be $100 and very few working miners can afford $200. There are
professional drillers to whom probably
the conditions will not be objectionable,
but it is not, or at least should not be
for the benefit of professional drillers
that such contests are arranged. There
ought to be some arrangement whereby
defeated teams who get absolutely no
prizes should obtain a refund of, say,
$50.
Coming back to the main issue, however, there should be no pains spared to
bring Boundary ores right to the very
front. At the present time copper is in
the ascendency and it is the opportunity
we require to make our resources known.
There is still considerable time yet, but
as a people we should not follow the
general and very bad habit of leaving
everything to the last, but begin at once.

TIME FOR  A CHANGE.
The folly of the Semlin government in
tinkering with the Provincial police
force, until it is reduced to an utterly
inadequate squad of unmounted constables, has been abundantly exemplified by the recent stage robbery in the
Boundary district. The criminals had
not tho slightest difficulty in escaping
with their booty, and their success may
very possibly inspire others to imitate
their example.���Vernon News.
" IN GOD WE TRUBT."
If a change does not come soon God
will have to take care of British Columbia. Its legislators are overworked
looking after personal quarrels, while
the country suffers from an amateur ad
ministration of public affairs.���New
Denver News.
A SOFT ANSWER TUBNETH AWAY WRATH
When asked why these high rates pre
vailed, Mr. Peters stated that it was the
schedule agreed upon between the con
tractors   and    the company, and was
something over which the C. P. R. did
not have exclusive control.   He thought
they would prevail until the road, or a
section of it, was turned over to the com
pany by the contractors.���Cascade Rec

CHARITY   BEGINS AT HOME.
Recently the Provincial government
offered to contribute $1,000,000 towards
the Pacific cable scheme. Patriotism,
like charity, should begin at home. A
Provincial government which possesses
Imperial instincts should possess some
little consideration for local needs. Inaugurate a progressive road and bridge
policy.���Grand Forks Miner.
Protect Yourself and
Your Horses by Using Our
Smelters Blown In.
The American Smelting and Refining
company will endeavor to reopen within
a few days its smelters in Denver, Pueblo, Leadville and Durangq that have
been closed since June 15 on account of
the demands made by the employes for
the same wages for eight hours as they
have been receiving for 10 to 12 hours.
The company offers the same scale of
wages paid previous to the 10 per cent,
reduction in 1893. An eight-hour schedule will be given the furnace men, but
the men in other departments will be
required to work 10 or 12 hours, as formerly.
It is believed most of the other employes will accept the terms offered.
The gates of the Globe smelter in Denver were thrown open Friday, the former employes being invited to return to work. Many applications were
received for employment, and it was
announced the sampler would resume
operations and the blowing in of the
furnaces begun.

/\ THE   GREENWOOD   MINER.
Friday, July 28, 1899.
Visit of the C. P. R. Officials.
On Saturday evening last a special
team brought in the C. P. R. officials,
whose visit was announced in last
week's issue. The party to arrive in
Greenwood consisted of Wm. Whyte,
General Western Manager; L. A. Hamilton, Land Commissioner; R. Marpole,
Supt. of the Pacific Division ; W. F. Tye,
Chief Engineer of the Columbia & Western extension, and Mr. Sullivan, Assistant Engineer. Accompanying the party
was C. C. Chipman, Chief Commissioner of the Hudson's Bay Company, reference to whom is made in another column.
The party was making a general tour
of inspection and investigation, which
included the whole of the interior system of the C. P. R. from Crow's Nest
Pass to Vernon via Penticton. Undoubtedly very important matters were
discussed and decided upon en route, affecting the policy of the company
throughout this district, but with the reserve which usually characterizes railway men who are not yet ready to make
announcements, Mr. Whyte had nothing of special importance to say to the
newspaper representatives who paid
their respects to him as the chief
spokesman of the party. Mr. Whyte,
who has a reputation among the newspaper men of the West for his urbanity
and accessibility for the purpose of interviews, said they were traveling
through to see the progress of the line,
and to size up the situation as they went
along. There was nothing to say regarding the policy of the company in regard to its plans for the future more
than had already been announced to the
public from time to time, and with
which newspaper readers were already
more or less familiar.
Mr. Whyte said the company was
pushing the construction of the road
through as fast as possible. In respect
to rates and all the other matters about
which business men of the district were
anxious to have information, an effort
would be made to meet, as far as possible, the requirements of the people, and
give satisfaction. He expressed his
great pleasure at the progress the
Boundary Creek District was making,
and was especially pleased with the appearance of Greenwood. . It was to a
large extent a surprise to him. The
city as he came in struck him as well
lighted, clean and busy, and the stores
were almost cosmopolitan in appearance.
It seemed to him to be building up very
rapidly, and with a solidarity that was
most promising for the future.
It so happened that the smoking concert of the club in celebration of removal to new quarters was in progress upon
the arrival of the party and the members were invited to attend. There was,
as is stated, a very excellent program
of music, songs, recitations, etc., and
they were impressed with the talent
that was available, and the progress
which so well appointed a club seemed
to indicate.
On Sunday morning at ten o'clock the
party left for Midway, and from there
proceeded to Penticton, and on to the
coast.        	
A Poor Policy.
The Grand Forks Miner remarks with
some degree of pleasure, apparently,
that "the transfer of their account to
a local bank by the management of the
Knob Hill, Old Ironsides and City of
Paris mines will not help Greenwood."
That is an exhibition of spirit regrettable to see in a newspaper representing
what is at least looked upon as a rival
town. It is the kind of thing that local
papers should eschew entirely, even if
the editors privately feel elated on account of it.   As a matter of fact there is
nothing of particular significance in the
removal of the bank account in question.
The Eastern Townships bank is represented at Grand Forks, and as several
of the directors of the bank are also directors of the mines referred to, it is
only natural that they should wish to
draw grist to their own mill. The circumstance is one, however, to which the
Miner evidently refers with no good intentions toward this city, thereby exhibiting very questionable taste. Two
towns may be rivals or competitors, and
yet their citizens, and especially their
newspapers, maintain at least a semblance of good will towards each other,
or at worst a dignified silence. A great
many places in the past have become
more or less ridiculous in the eyes of the
world, because of that foolish and almost idiotic jealousy of each other,
which leads their newspapers and their
leading citizens to say all manner of
mean and often very untruthful things
about one another. That method of advertising is quite well understood nowadays, and appreciated at its true value.
All sensible people on the outside despise it. It is looked upon as childish.
It is to be hoped that the newspapers of
the Boundary District towns, whatever
private efforts they put forth to take the
lead, may set an example in an expression of outward regard for each other
that will reflect credit on this part of the
country as a whole. Greenwood has
never exhibited a spirit of ill-will towards other towns. Its citizens would regard such a feeling as an admission that
rivalry was serious. They are
only too pleased to observe evidences of
progress in any or all of the towns or
townsitea of the District, because such
growth must be tributary to the growth
and importance of Greenwood as the
mining and commercial centre.
The Okanogan Free Gold Mines.
Hon. T. Mayne Daly returned on
Monday from Oro where he was visiting
the property of the Okanogan Free Gold
Mines, Ltd. In conversation with a
Miner representative ho stated that the
mine was looking up well and that a 10-
stamp mill had just been installed. He
expressed himself as exceedingly well
pleased with the prospects there. The
company, he said, were making arrangements to ship the concentrates
through to the Trail smelter, and thus
have the benefits of the smelting on
this side of the line. Questioned as to
the prospects of Washington state ores
along the line being treated on this side
of the line he thought they were very
good. For some time to corneat all events
it would be much nearer to treat them
at Trail than any place else.
Mr. Daly said that there was a good
deal of activity on Meyers creek in the
vicinity of Chesaw, and he thought
from the splendid showings of free milling ore in that district that there would
be considerable excitement shortly.
The country was a beautiful one and a
visit thither would be well repaid. Mr.
Daly left the same afternoon for Rossland.
Back in British Columbia.
S. James, Toronto, a Domion land
surveyor, and one of the pioneers of the
Province, is in the city. He has come
west again after many years to look the
country over with a view to settling
himself and his family. Mr. James
landed in Victoria forty years ago about
this time and went up the Eraser river
at the time of the excitement, and subsequently reached Cariboo, staying in
the Province from 1859 to 1863. He
came out to British Columbia with F
J. Barnard, F. S. Barnard's father, who
ran the Cariboo stage line, and still remembers with some degree of remorse
the fact that he paid that gentleman
$144 in freight on a theodolite from Victoria, or exactly $4 more than the instrument cost in Toronto.

THE   GREENWOOD   MINER.
h
TOPICS      OF    THE    INTERIOR.
A rich strike with values in gold, silver and copper is reported from Kitchener, East Kootenay.
It rumored that August Heinze is going to build a short line of railway between Sagwood and Trail, which will
give direct communication between the
last named place and the mines of Ymir
district when developed
A Grand Forks correspondent reports
that a sulphur spring has been discovered on the Manly ranche, and he adds
''the health   giving waters  are   being
dispensed around town as a beverage."
* What with a smelter and a good supply
of sulphuretted hydrogen the people
there will have a very effective reminder of the future to be avoided.
There is talk of Kaslo having a smelter. The Smelter Corporation is the
name of a company with a capital of
��600,000, the head office of which is to
be in Kaslo, recently floated in England.
It is stated upon what appears to be
very good authority that the Blackstock-
Gooderham syndicate has purchased a
60 per cent, interest in the St. Eugene
mine at Moyie, on a basis of $150,000 for
the mine.
A daily mail on the Crow's Nest Pass
railway is announced from Ottawa.
There is considerable activity in the
Lardo, Duncan and Windermere districts this season. The Marcus Daly
copper combine, and other large interests are said to be interested in the
Windermere country and the C. P. R.
has 400 men at work on the Lardo-Dun-
can line. The Kaslo and Slocan are also working on the rght of way,
Republic, Wash., is excited over the
attempt on the part of an "enemy" to
claim the town as a part of the Indian
reserve. The Indian allotting agent for
the reservation is at present at Republic investigating the matter. If the
claim is sustained there would be a hyas
potlatch among the natives and another
civil war.
The Republic Miner states that this
week the state wagon road down the
San Poil valley from Republic to Keller
and the Columbia river will be completed. It is understood that two stage
lines will go on the road between Wilbur and Republic. The Miner is happy
over the prospects of cheaper rates as a
eonsequence.
Aid. H. B. Thomson, Nelson, has
tendered his resignation to the council
there. Thomson, who was local manager for Turner, Beeton & Co. there, has
become manager of a large syndicate
operating in Cariboo, doing a general
jobbing, merchandise and cattle business.
The ore shipments from Rossland for
the year 1899 to July 15th was 70,176
tons, and for the week ending the same
date, 1,879 tons.
Rossland and Nelson each gets $15,-
000 for public buildings in the supplementary estimates.
'The Nelson gas works has been started.   The plant will cost $100,000.
The Nelson Miner is authority for the
statement that cars will be running between Nelson and Balfour before Christmas, being the first installment of the
Crow's Nest line into Nelson.
H. C. Hannington, son of Judge Han-
nington, New Brunswick, has opened an
office in Grand Forks as banister. G. A.
Heisterman has also opened an office
there for McDonald & Clute, Rossland.
Tommy Hibbard has sold out his interest in the Victoria restaurant, Grand
Forks, to H. S. Smith, the firm to be
known hereafter as Dufour & Smith.
The steam laundry and planing mills
recently destroyed in Grand Forks by
fire are to be rebuilt.
The Nelson Tribune ia authority for
the statement that arrangements have
been completed for an exchange of traffic between the C. P. R. and the Nelson
& Ft. Shepherd Railway at that point.
Fort Steele is to have a branch of the
Bank of Comerce, too.
The Pot Hook and other copper properties near Kamloops are looking up
well.
Geo. Robinson, secretary of the Fair-
view Corporation Mining Co., reports
that President Russell is meeting with
much success in the sale of stock in the
east, and has about completed arrangements for the erection of a new 40 stamp
mill on the Stemwinder.
Great things are expected from the
motor power which is being conserved
at the Cascade Falls on the Kettle River. The work on the dam, to develop
5,000 horse-power is in progress. The
dam as projected will be 35 feet high and
400 feet long, the work is about half
done and it will take about six months
to finish it. The intention is to develop
and transmit electrical power for all the
mines in the Boundary country. The
flume is to be one quarter of a mile
long, 600 feet of which will be in the nature of a tunnel through solid rock.
The power house will be a solid structure of stone and brick at the fopt of the
walls. The poles for the electric current are already erected to Wellington
camp.
R. A. Brown has started work on the
the Volcanic, which is again his individual property, and he feels confident
that the big tunnel he is driving tc cut
the lead at a depth of over 1,000 feet will
encounter the ore body within the next
few weeks.
The Vernon & Nelson Telephone Co.
keeps improving its facilities for the
transaction of business. It has completed its third metallic circuit between
Rossland and Spokone.
Nelson city council has decided to
spend $10,000 in improving its electric
light system.
Spokane and the Drillers-
Two weeks ago the Miner took occasion to criticize the proposals for a rock
drilling contest for miners, sent out by
the mining department of the Spokane
Industrial Fair. Touching the matter
we have the following letter from Mr.
DeLashmutt:
Spokane, Wash., July 18, 1899.
The purses offered by the Industrial
Fair required six full entries, all over
the six will be added to the purse, hence
the purses may each amount to more
than a thousand dollars
The posters sent out were not clear
upon this point and hence the misunderstanding; however, we are authorized to state that the above is correct.
Trusting that this explanation will be
entirely satisfactory and that it will
meet with your hearty endorsement and
that you will be here in person, I am,
Very truly yours,
Van B. DeLashmutt,
Chairman of Committee.
The Miner has taken occasion to inform itself on this point by inquiring of
Mr. Casey, superintendent of the Republic mine, and other practical men in
thiscamp. Without exception they think
$100 too much. A better sum would be
$50. This would be $25 per man. It
should be remembered tnat the miners
are a notoriously liberal class of men.
They give away about all they make
and they do not carry a surplus amount
of cash. These rock drilling contests
are incidental in their lives. They are
not following the business like a profession such as horseracing.���Republic

PHOENIX.
Notwithstanding the progress of the
place the people here still refer to
Greenwood as "down town."
There are between 25 and 30 new
houses being built. The number is
pretty evenly divided between the upper and lower and center parts of the
town.
Henry Nash is building an addition
to the Phoenix hotel to be used as a bar
room.
Messrs. Postey and Bird are going to
start another store just alongside the
hotel. The building for the purpose is
already under way, and will probably
be opened in about two or three weeks
from now. ,
Major Ross advertised a lecture at the
hotel Phoenix on Saturday last, his
subject being the "Prospector from
Huckleberry Creek" or the "grubstake
that didn't fetch." Upon arrival the
Major didn't think the conditions altogether favorable for a good hearing and
refused to give the lecture as ahnounced.
The Broooklyn and Stemwinder are
closed down, and the local manager
could give no news as to whether or
how soon they will open up again. A
very neat cottage is being built for the
superintendent, which looks as though
it was not the intention to wait until
the eight-hour law is repealed before
resuming operations.
The party of eastern capitalists who
are mainly directors and shareholders
in the Knob Hill and Ironsides mines
have been here examining their properties and are very much pleased with the
showings and prospects of not only their
own mines but those throughout the
whole of the Boundary country. The
party includes S. H. C. Miner, his wife
and Miss Miner, of Granby, Que., E. M.
Carroll and wife, of New York; A. L.
White, Montreal, secretary of the company ; G. Stevens, Waterloo, director of
the Eastern Townships Bank; E. A.
Naughten, of Huntington, Que.
The beginning of a waterworks system has been inaugurated and the Phoenix hotel had water turned on for the
first time on Saturday afternoon. The
water is conveyed at present in a small
iron pipe from a creek above the town,
but it is the intention to tap a small
lake with a good water supply and put
in a six-inch main next summer. The
pipe at present in will supply most of
the houses in the lower part of the
town. This is the enterprise of Mr.
Rumberger, the owner of the townsite.
The question of placing Phoenix on
tho market is still unsettled. The lower part of the town is owned by Mr.
Rumberger and the upper by the Ironsides Co. It is probable, however, that
both will be platted very shortly.
There are no less than three barber
shops and laundries in operation.
Missionary services are held every
Wednesday evening.
Fischer's sawmill near here is doing a
night and day business and finds the
demand greater than the ability to supply lumber fast enough.
Sunset Mine.
This property which has recently been
handed over to the Montreal and Boundary Creek Co., is about to commence
operations on an extensive scale. $125,-
000 is already in the treasury for equipping the mine with machinery and developing it. A twenty-drill compressor
plant has been ordered from Jas. D.
Sword, the British Columbia agent of
the James Cooper Mfg. Co., of Montreal.
The compressor will be a compound machine of the Ingersoll-Sargeant type.   A

equipment of boilers, pumps, drills,
cages, etc., and the hoistina works
when completed will be the finest in the
district. Bunk houses and boarding
houses will be erectd for the miners and
suitable residences for both the manager, Mr. Macfarlane and the superintendent. Mr. Johns, at present superintendent of the Mother Lode mine, will
take charge of the mine, and superintend the erection of the plant, which
will be here in about ten weeks. The
spur of the Canadian Pacific, which taps
this property, the Mother Lode, and adjacent properties, passes within 100 feet
of the site of the new shaft. The shaft
will be a two-compartment, with provision for another compartment, and
will be continued to the 1,000-foot level.
There is already a large body of ore, that
will average $18 in gold and copper,
available. The company realize that
they have the prospects of an immense
mine, and will actively develop the property until they are able to make a large
and regular daily output.
Messrs. Cox, Jaffray and MacKenzie,
the eastern capitalists, who are heavily
interested in this part of the Province,
are expected to arrive in Greenwood today or to-morrow.

GREENWOOD   CLUB.
Removal to New Quarters Celebrated
by a Smoking Concert.
Last Saturday arrangements were
completed for the removal of the Club
furniture to new premises on the third
floor of the Rendell block, which will be
wholly occupied for that purpose. It is
not completely furnished, but will be in
the course of a few days, or otherwise
as soon as the railway gets in to bring
the billiard tables.
The apartments of the Club will consist of: A reading room, facing Copper
street; a sitting room, facing Copper
and Greenwood; a billiard room with
three tables; i. barroom, and offices,
etc., etc. The Club room will be lighted by electricity and have electric calls.
The carpets and furniture are all of the
best, and the premises, when fully in order, will compare favorably in appointments with any similar institution in
British Columbia.
There are at the present time 80 members. The officers recently elected are:
F.J. Finucane, president; Clive Prin-
gle, vice president; A.Ferguson, secretary, and a committee of management.
It was decided to mark the first stage
in the Club's career, that of moving into
new and more sumptuous quarters, in
some special manner, and a smoking
concert was considered the most fitting.
The president, who filled the chair and
acted as host to a very large number
present, both visitors and members,
announced that there was a good deal of
talent in Greenwood, and the program
as executed more than confirmed his
statement. Every person present was
highly pleased with the entertainment.
Detailed reference to the various numbers would require too much space. In
brief, those who took part were: The
Mandolin Society composed of R. Stuart,
A. Murray, H. R. Elliott, C. M. Arnold,
and J. E. Hooper, accompanist; songs
by A. G. Sihipson, W. W. Howe, F. J.
Finucane, J. E. Hooper, and recitations
by A. T. Short, manager of the Bank of
a. N. A., and a banjo selection by C.
M. Arnold. Each of the foregoing gave
several selections, and in each case was
recalled. The program was one of genuine merit throughout.
Congress of Boards of Trade at Rossland.
On the third of August the much
talked of Congress of Boards of Trade of
Kootenay and Boundary will be held in
Rossland. Delegates have been appointed by the various Boards of Trade
and bodies of a similar nature, and the
subject for discussion will cover a wide
field, and include nearly all those things
of special interest to the Interior. The
original delegates from Greenwood were
J. H. McMillan, Rossland, and Clive
Pringlci, barrister. The latter gentleman will be unable to attend and Duncan Rosb, of the Boundary Creek Times,
will go in his stead. It has been decided that the delegates from (Tie Boundary
district should have a preliminary meeting the evening before, in order that
they may arrive at some sort of understanding among thomselves.
The Cascade delegates are S. Mayall
and V. Monnier. It is not known who
the Grand Forks delegates are, if any
one. Among the subjects to be discussed will be the eight-hour law ; the
silver-lead industry; increased representation of the southern Interior of British Columbia, in the Dominion House
of Commons; more liberal appropriations for the development of the various
districts represented; the mining laws;
the representation of British Columbia
minerals at the Paris Exposition; educational facilities; the rectification of
the political boundaries so as to afford
separate representation in the local
House for Boundary; a complete set of
government offices for the Boundary
District, including facilities for the
holding of Supreme Court Sittings
somewhere within its limits. Doubtless
there will be other matters brought up,
but so far as Boundary is concerned, the
foregoing are of main interest.
ROSSLAND   WEEKLY   REVIEW.
(Special Correspondence Miner.)
So far this year, that is to say up to
July 25, there have been shipped from
Rossland mines about 47,000 tons of ore.
(The figures are approximate.) The
value of this ore is a matter on which
there must be a difference of opinion,
since the value per ton depends wholly
upon smelter returns, and these have
only been furnished in part. If every
ton of ore shipped as above stated be
valued at $18, the estimate is likely to
be near the mark. This gives a valuation of $1,332,000. I shall be happy to
raise these figures when competent authority furnishes better data than I
have yet seen on this subject.
As may be inferred the holiday season
is not the time for a lively market in
mining stocks. The market is flat, not
only for this reason, but for other causes.
The list of shipping mines has not been
increased since the Centre Star was added to the producers, making four in all,
viz, Le Roi, War Eagle, Iron Mask and
Centre Star. In expectation are the
Columbia and Kootenay, the Sunset,
No 2, White Bear and Josle, and unless
these be soon added to the list of shippers, I am at a loss to find where the
additions are to come from. If the
stoclr market should continue flat, it
will be (Jue to the fact that strikes and
new shippers are not coming to the
front as they ought to be. It is production which measures the prosperity of
this trade.
The most encouraging feature worthy
of note is the advance being made by
the C. P. R. throughout this section���
the extension of its system, and the facilities which it is furnishing to our
mines and smelters to handle the ores.
Another fact, too, worthy of mention, is
that recently an attempt was made by
the boomster element to bull the London evening stock market with, as we
all now know, fatal results. This slump
has materially affected the prospects of
this portion of Kootenay, and it will
take some time for the market to recover. ��   *   *
No Coalition in His.
Price Ellison, representative for the
Vernon district, has been to the
Coast and returned with strong views
on the political situation. He is personally strongly opposed to coalition with
any faction of the Government party,
and thinks in a general election the old
party will win out. He is going to stand
exactly on the issues upon which he was
elected. Moreover, he is opposed to the
introduction of Dominion party politics
in Provincial affairs, and is firmly convinced that the present is a most inopportune time for such a movement. He
considers that it would needlessly complicate the situation to dovetail B. C.
affairs with Dominion issues, and it
would be unfair to the people of this
Province, who desire to see an untrammelled and representative government
formed, to do so.
The Miner is prepared to do all kinds
of job work.   Below Bank Commerce.

A RICH ORE STRIKE
On the  Gold Bug Property
Near Greenwood.
Ore in the Shaft Studded With Free
Silver and Gold ���A Remarkable
Combination of Values.
THE BEST WORKMEN,
THE BEST OUTFIT,
For Turning Out tlie Neatest and
Most UP-TO-DATE
JOB WORK
Details of the extraordinarily rich
strike that has been made on the Gold
Bug are at hand and confirm the first
reports that have been published in regard to this property. The Gold Bug
was located about six years ago by
D. A. Holbrook, of Boundary City, and
was recently acquired by the Boundary
Creek Mining and Milling Co., the principal owners in which are Holbrook,
Harris and Baker of London, and Hector McRae of Rossland. It is located
about two miles from Greenwood in
Deadwood camp, west of the Mother
Lode.
About a month ago work was started
under the direction of Alexander Sharp,
late superintendent of the Columbia and
Kootenay, Rossland, and a shaft waB
sunk from the surface, seven men being
employed. Eight feet from the surface
very rich, and rather remarkable ore
was struck, in a vein two feet wide.
The ore consists of galena ore and quartz
side by side. The quartz is simply
studded with free silver and assays
from $200 to $300 in gold, with values in
copper as well. The samples seen by
the Miner representative show both silver and gold in the quartz, and are really
remarkable specimens.
At the depth of eight feet, the vein as
already stated, was two feet in width.
The shaft is now down to the depth of
thirty feet, and the width has gradually
increased to three and a half feet, with
the same kind of ore throughout. The
values in the shaft alone are very considerable, and if the width and general
character of ore are maintained, the
Gold Bug will be one of the biggest
mines in the camp.
Bears Plentiful.
A good bear story is relished by the
public, but the Miner is advised on no
less authority than the Rev. Mr. Balder-
ston, that a newspaper takes considerable risk in respect to general reputation, by publishing two in succession.
In the interests of truth, however, it is
necessary to say that on Saturday evening last one was seen on the road from
Pnoenix, which kept company at a respectful distance with two pedestrians,
for about half a mile, and then crossed
the road and went down hill. Mr.
James, the hero of last week's bear story,
has informed the Miner that two very
large cinnamons visited his partner's
cabin in Wellington Camp the other
day.
Gone to Similkameen.
W. Y. Williams, general superintendent of the Old Ironsides and Knob Hill
consolidation, whose headquarters,
heretofore, have been at Rossland, was in
town to-day, and left at 1 p. m. for Similkameen, where he will be for several
days. He says that another contingent of the shareholders, from Philadelphia, intend coming in to Boundary
later on to see the properties. Mr.
Williams says that the members of the
company already here are so well pleased
