The Greenwood Miner.
Published   Weekly.
Vol. III. No. 18.
Greenwood, B. C, May 4, 1901.
Per Year, $2.00
Bonded   to P.   McMillan  of
In the  Morrison Mine to Consider
the   Assessment   Question.
Mining Notes.
This week P. McMillan, of Toronto,
secured an option from H. E. Mitchell
and Thos. Murray on the Gold Drop
mineral claim for $8,000. The option is
for three months, and termB of payment
$4,000 cash and balance in stock. The
Gold Drop is situated on Dry Creek, a
tributary of the West Fork of Kettle
river, and is about three miles from the
town of Rendell. Two assessments have
been done on the property. At a depth
of 10 feet the ledge is four feet in width,
giving average assays running from $50
to upwards of $100 in gold and silver.
Mr. McMillan has gone te Toronto, and
on his return in the course of a month
or six week, development will be commenced on the property.
A meeting of the local shareholders
of Morrison stock was called for yesterday afternoon to discuss the two-cent
assessment being levied. There is a
growing feeling among local and eastern
stockholders that assessments are becoming too numerous, and that amounts
collected are not being devoted to development of the property solely, and
also that the managing directorate are
too expensive. The matter will be
taken into the courts if redress cannot
be had otherwise. The mine is considered one of the best in the Boundary
district, and, although a sufficient sum
has been furnished to place it on a
shipping basis, the property is not yet
in a position to make continuous shipments. 	
There is a possibility of work being
shortly resumed on either the Hidden
Treasure or the Gold Bug mineral claim,
in Deadwood camp. These claims adjoin and are situate between the Mother
i,ode and the Morrison. A. Drucker,
tho owner, is now bere on a visit and
during the week he went over the claims
with a view to determining what work
appears to promise best results. A tunnel was run into the hill towards the
Morrison in 1899, but for some time
past the claims, which have been crown
granted, have not had any work done
on them. 	
A. G. Davis, superintendent of the
Rambler group, returned to Greenwood
this week, after a two-weeks' visit to
Fairbaven and other Pttget Sound cities.
Mr, Davis went to the coast to consult
with stockholders in the company for
which he is local manager. He reports
buBineBs good in all the cities he visited.
Walter G. Stephan, who has been in
charge of thu ore sorting plant at the
Mother Lode mine, went out on last
YVednestlay's train to Kossland, en
route to hit home in Cleveland, Ohio.
On the 21st day of February last the
Morrison company entered into a contract with the Standard Pyritic Smelter
company, at Greenwood, to handle the
ore from the mine. Tbe contract called
for about 70,000 tons of ore and under
the said contract the Smelter company
was to do the mining and smelting, all
ore shipped from the mine to net the
Morrison Company not less than $1.00
per ton, and from this up according to
the grade of ore. In order to carry out
their contract it was necessary that a
railroad spur be constructed, and in the
agreement entered in.to a provision was
made that the contract should not take
effect for 90 days, during which time
the spur could be built. We have recently been informed that they do not
intend carrying out the contract. It is
now the intention of the directors to try
and make a contract with some other
smelter, and if successful, to begin construction of a spur at once. Should we
not be successful in contracting our ore
at the present time, the money will be
expended in the further development of
the mine, and the spur constructed aB
soon as a satisfactory contract for the
ore can be made.
When the contract with the Pyritic
Smelter people was entered into, we
fully believed the agreement would be
carried out, and we therefore cut off
assessments; and if said contract had
been carried out no further assessments
would have been levied. The mine is
now in position to maintain a large
daily tonnage, and as soon as a reasonable and   fair contract can  be made,
Six 31^ and three No. 0  Little Giant

and last week a 5x5 auxilliary  hoisting

Are Now Shipping Ore to the Smelters���Oldest Locations in the
A carload of ore from the Republic
group, near Boundary Falls, was sent to
the Greenwood smelter early in the week,
this being the first shipment made from
those claims. The group includes the
Republic, Last Chance, Non Such and
Hidden Treasure claims, all adjoining,
and situate about a mile north-west of
the Boundary Falls townsite. The Non
Such has the distinction of being the
oldest location in the Boundary district,
that is to say its record has been kept
continuously on the books of the district
mining recorder ever Bince the location
was made by W. T. Smith in 1886.
There may have been one or two locations made in the district before the
Non Such but if so they were not kept
on record from time of first record to the
operate the mines on an increasingly
large Bcale, will include a 40 or 45-drill
air compressor, two large air receivers,
about 40  machine drills,  a  large  rock
crusher and a full complement of boilers
���probably a battery of about (100 horse
power. The compressor will he a crosB
compound condensing Corliss engine,
with compound air cylinders, and it is
likely to be similar to those in use at tbe
Centre Star and War Eagle mines at
Kossland, which can be driven by either
steam or electricity. The rock crusher
will probably be one with a daily capacity of 2,000 tons. Should this additional
plant be put in, as it very likely will he,
the Old Ironsides and Knob Hill group
will then have the biggest power equipment in the Boundary district.
The undermentioned labor organizations were formed in Britisli Columbia
during the month of March : At Vancouver, a building trades council, composed of two delegates from each union
of the building trades; at New Westminster, a longshoremen's union, with
a membership of 130, including all the
longshoremen in that city ; antl at New
Westminster a tramway employees' union, numbering 22 members with other
applications   for    niemqership.      It  is
Steam was got up for the first time
early in the current week in the new
100-horse power boiler lately installed
at the No. 7 mine, in Central camp.
The No. 7 is the only mine being worked
in that camp at the present time. It
is owned hy the No, 7 Mining company,
of New York, the principal shareholders
being also leading members of the British Columb.a Copper company, which
has done stit-h extensive and successful
work in developing the Mother Lode
mine, in Deadwood i-amp. The No. 7
was acquired under bond by Col. John
Weir lor himself and New York associates about the same time as they secured the Mother Lode, and it was first
worketl, concurrently with the latter,
in 18911-7. A shaft was sunk 139 feet,
anil between 400 ami 590 feet of cross-
cutting anil drifting was done ill that
depth, this work resulting in its being
conclusively shown that the lead gave
  excellent promise of proving permanent.
The tonnage of Ore shipped by Boundary District mines during    May to 2nd inst., inolusive, so far as   Th�� ore is quartz, mineralized with ga-
j lena and carrying values chiefly in gold
has been ascertained from the mines is approximately as under :

The following notice of assessments
with information relating thereto, haB
been issued by the Morrison Mines,
Spokane, Wash , April 23, 1901.
Assessment No. 10 of One Cent per
share has been levied by the directors
of the Morrison Mines, Limited, and
same must be paid at this office on or
before 20 days from date.
Also Assessment No. 11 of One Cent
per share has been levied by the directors of the Morrison Mines, Limited,
and same must be paid at this office on
or before the 5th day of June, 1901. In
default your stock will become delinquent and liable to be sold.
Yours truly,
A. F. Ol.IVKR,
The above assessments were levied to
pay off an indebtedness of about $5,000;
to' continue tbe development work at
the mine; to build a spur from the mine
to the railroad, a distance of one and
one-fourth miles; and to aJd additional
regular shipments will be maintained.
F. H, Oliver,
The secretary of the Le Koi company
has just made public some interesting
information regarding the position of
the company on March 1st last. On
that tlate the iudebetetlness tu the Bank
of Montreal was $775,000, against which
there was matte in transitto the refinery
antl ore at the smelter of an approximate value of $1,085,000. Iu explaining
this big overdraft at the hank the
secretary said : " Unfortunately thia ore
does nut become cash immediately, and
in the meantime it is necessary to
develop the mine and pay for the
machinery and wages. Had the smelter
been completed, as was expected, by the
middle of January, the increased returns
would have enabled us to pay off our in-
debetedness to the bank pnd start with
a clean  sheet."

that the lead was continuous for about
700 feet in the northern part of the
claim, but higher up the hill, to the
south of the shaft, an old ravine, filled
with wash, cut it off. A prospect shaft
sunk still farther south picked up the
leatl again. After the year 1897 very
little work was done on the claim, only
sufficient to fullil the requirements of
the law in this connection, until a crown
grant was obtained, ami since then no
work was done underground until this
year. When the No. 7 company was
organized, a year or more ago, mine
buildings were erected, mine timbers
and cordwood were cut and other preparations were made for further opening
up the mine, hut this intention was
abandoned lor a time, anil attention
was concentrated on the Mother Lode.
Now, however, conditions being more
further favorable, the No. 7 is to he developed.

her rendition in the several duets showed remarkable dramatic talent and a
rich voice. They are, without doubt,
star performers of the first order. The
audience, though small, through some
unforeseen reason, were electrified by
the great vocal and dramatic ability of
the singers, and should occasion bring
them again they no doubt command a
bumper house.���Stratford Herald.

lie was elected as representative to the

To one not heedful of the slowing augmenting number of deaths that occur
as time passes,  in this comparatively
new district it comes as somewhat of a
surprise to find that there are about a
hundred graves in the Greenwood
tery.     And  yet  when  one   count
those of his own friends and  ac      J. UP
ances who where members of       -<l����iht-
raunity but who have dtir'       *'��� '(-'"mi

since   the to-      >tWl  that  bail all  who,
died  either       ��7H  came    into existence,

terred       or eight miles,  have been  in-
),���.-      . in the local burying ground, one
,      jdfwd would not nearly represent the
*ot��l number.   Not that the mortality
is unusually large here, but that as the
years  pass   the   aggregate  number  of
deaths necessarily   increases  until, as
already   suggested,  it surprises   those
whodo not ordinarily observe its gradual
mounting up.
The ground set apart for burial purposes is distant about three miles north
from the business portion of Greenwood.
Jt has been thoroughly cleared, en-
���dosed by a neat picket fence and
platted. The soil is sandy, so that no
difficulty is experienced in grave digging.
When cleared not a single tree was left
standing, consequently the couple of
acres fenced have a very bare appearance. This objection will not, however,
permanently remain, for already young
pines or firs are springing up, so that
two or three years hence there should
be a number of shapely indigenous
trees ornamenting this "God's Acre,"
as in older lands a burial ground is frequently designated.
Entering the cemetery through the
���southern gate���by the way, it is a pity
that it Ib not someone's duty to see that
the gate is not left open after burials
*afee place, else is the fencing of little
use as a protection to the graves from
damage by horses and cattle���the first
grave to catch the eye is that of "Baby
Branson, aged five," which bears inside
its simple inscription the single word
"REST." It is pathetic to note the
number of infants' graves there are
here, suggesting that Death has been no
respector of persons, but has claimed
as his own numerous little ones whose
loss has darkened homes previously
made brighter by their presence. The
name Laura Johns on one small grave
recalls the memory of a three year old
child who a little more than twelve
months ago was the light of u home at
the Mother Lode mine. Baby Swaoson
died at Phoenix, and near by one reads
the names of Baby Sewell, Baby Wood
and Thomas Butler, the last the infant
son of one of Greenwood's pioneer
residents. There are other diminutive
graves, but attention is turned from
them to observe the large proportion of
men, and comparatively young men
particularly, who have found their last
resting place in this quiet spot. It
seems, judging by thestorv told by a number of tbe inscriptions, mostly pencilled
on plain boards, (probably to identify the
locations after removal from the old
cemetery) that death  here finds

timely death. Another inscription is
singular In ils preciseness of detail; "In
memory of It, K, Caverly, born Saptotuber 26, 18(18, died March 27, 190U, age 31
years, (I months aud I day." A fenced
plot is the grave of Chas Peterson, connected with whose death were circumstances peculiar in their piiinl'iilness.
That unfortunate man wits killed by ll
fall of rock in a working oli It mineral
claim on Boomerang creek, a tributary
of the West fork of Kettle river. The
Camp was an isolated one���miles away
from any other. In it were only two
other persons, viz., the wife uml the
mining partner of tlie deceased. When
the death occurred the newly made
wlilow had to spend hours alone with
the mangled body of her deatl husband,
an agonizing experience, whilst the
partner went away for assistance. ��Bnt
enough of sneh reminisences.
Before concluding with the mention
of the graves of two of the very few
Women buried here, mention will be
made of two others whose bodies also
lie in this cemetery. (Ieorge Shipley, j
who only a fortnight since departed this i
life, was well known in the town and j
district. The other was an old timer
in a truer sense of the word than is
generally meant when u-ed. For instance, the district Pioneers' society'
acknowledges as pioneers all who came'
to the district up to tlie summer of 1894,
from those old veterans, Charley Dietz
and "Jolly .lack," down to the spick
anil span dude, whom the designation
"pioneer"so ill befits. But tlie late
Jim McConnell was a veritable pioneer,
for he was at Rock creek as early as
18I12. He was a native of Tyrone, Ireland, and much might be written of the
vicissitudes of his changeful life, but
this is scarcely the occasion with which
to associate much detail of it. Briefly,
though, it. may be stated that he was
about 18H4-5, foreman or manager for
the lute Judge Haynes, long ii cuttle
king at Osoyoos, who in 1875, assisted
him to secure tlie land at what was then
known as Grand Prairie hut now as
Grand Forks fie was the lirst man to
drive cattle from the Boundary to Ihe
Northwest, his accomplishment of taking 400 head over the old Dewdney
trail and thence through the Crow's
Nest Pass having long since been regarded as no mean undertaking, hater
he owned the Hock creek coal lands,
which lie sold to the Thompson-Wood
syndicate, lie lived for a while in Victoria and went thence to California.
Then he drifted hark to the Bock creek
district, in which he spent the closing
years of his life, until his removal to
the (ireenwood hospital, where he died
on May 8, IS9S.
The most pretentious tombstone in
the Greenwood cemetery is one " In

of tragic and premature ending to lives
once full of promise of lasting to the allotted three score and ten, might be
told of those whose earthly remains Ho
hidden beneath the mounds raised
above their last, long homes, Here is
tbe grave of (ieorge Edwards, who met
an untimely death in the Jewel mine at

brief words, "McCormack, killed at Old

account for his crime; antl vet again,

of Hubert Brash Miller, Dominion hand
Survey, who died at .lames creek, Jan.
23rd, 1899, aged 42 years." brings up
tlie recollection of one who wandered
from a railway survey camp to meet a
lonely death in tlie snow. Tragedies

townspeople and prospectors, and 15, A.

hike many more of us he had his faults,
but " Requiescat in pace." Over
another grave is an inscription: "Sacred to tlie memory of Richard Noble
Taylor, died December 80, 1896," of
whom those who in Greenwood's early I
days hail the privilege of his friendship
had nothing but kind words to say. He
it was wlto of this town's pioneer residents, led the way to death's dark vale,
for he was the first to break life's circle
in the embryo city and go to that dark
bourne from which no traveller returns.
The single word " Paton " on a stake

out of the granite. This monument is
enduring anil in excellent taste. In
another part of the cemetery an enclosed plot marks tin- grave of Alice
Palmer, a general favorite, cut off in tlie
bloom of young womanhood, ami one
whose early death was widely deplored.

" li would he imp ssihle to adequately
treat ol the groat Northwest region, including Washington. Oregon, Hritish
Columbia, Alaska and the Yukon Territory, wfthotit special mention of that
powerful financial institution, tlie Canadian Hank of Commerce, which throughout this country has become typically
representative of strength, usefulness
and helpfulness. In a spirit of giving
credit to whom credit is due, it must be
justly acknowledged that no financial
institution American or foreign has
done more for the development of this
section of tlie worltl than has tlie Canadian Hank of Commerce. This statement, of course, must be considered inclusive of the Hank of British Columbia
which on January 1st of the present
year���the first day of the new century
���united its existence witli the Canadian Bank of Commerce under the
name of the latter bank. The Bank of
British Columbia bail occupied a leading position on this coast, and enjoyed
a prestige in financial circles the world
over. Hut its headquarters wer in
London, and owing to the inconvenience
of administering its affairs by a board
of directors on the other side of the
Atlantic, it was decidetl best to make
overtures for a merger witli a chartered
bank of Canada, and the Canadian
Bank of Commerce, whose eastern reputation is second to none, and whose
business in this western country was
already of a highly satisfactory character, was selected as the institution most
desireable with which to open negotiations. After a thorough inspection and
verification of the assets, cash on hand,
etc., of tbe Hank of Britisli Columbia
by Mr. J. H. Plummer, the Assistant
General Manager of the Canadian Bank
of Commerce, aided by an able staff,
the ileal was finally consummated, by
which these two great banks became one.
This consolidation has made the Canadian Bank of Commerce a veritable
Gibralter of finance. It has notv sixty-
seven branches, the largest number of
branches possessed by any financial
institution of the New World. It has a
paid up capital in gold coin of $8,000,-
000, and a reserve fund of $2,000,000.
It had deposits on January ,'ilst of $45,-
755,750, with cash resources of $19,918,-
441, and its total assets reached the
large sum of $11,1,8:13,440. The stockholders, of whom there are over 2,500,
and who include some of tlie most prominent people on both continents, are
subject to double liability, so that in
the ordinary course of human events
depositors are secured absolutely.
"It is in connection with its northern
business that tlie Candian Bank of
Commerce has won especial fame for it
was one of the pioneers in this business.
When it located its branch in Dawson,
Yukon Territory, it marked tlie northernmost point in the North American
continent���if not in the world���that
had yet been benefitted by banking
facilities. This was in June, 1898, before the opening up of the railroad
through White Pass, and when the region was almost inacessible to intercourse with the outside world. The
Canadian government recognized tlie
enterprise, as well os the solidity and
standing of tlie bank, by making it its
exclusive financial agent for the Klondike region. Its operations in connection with tlie purchase of gold dust
antl nuggets, and the issuing of drafts
aud letters of credit within this region,
are as might be supposed, enormous in
scope. In fact, one-third of the total
gold treated by tlie assay ollice at
Seattle in 1899, and one-tpiarter of that.
of 1900 was sold it by this hank. The
bank next established agencies at
White Horse, Skagway and Atlin,
which, witli its brandies at Vancouver,
Victoria, Seattle, Portland, San Francisco, New York and London, England,
together with its 5(1  other  branches in
Canada,   gives it special   facilites for
handling the business of miners and
merchants of the Klondyke and Pacific
coast, and makes it one of the best
equipped financial institutions for doing business in this country. In its
business dealings with the people of
this rapidly growing Northwestern
ountry, the bank has achieved a great
and well deservetl popularity.
"The headquarters of this bank are
at Toronto, Ontario, where it is located
in a building that is one of tlie architectural features of Canado. It was established in I8H7, the Hon. William
McMaster being the first President. It
enjoys the unique distinction of having
never missed ,i dividend, and its capital
has never been reduced. Probably no
bank more thoroughly covers the worltl
through correspondent institutions, ami
its letters of credit afford accommodation to travellers in all parts of the
world, no matter how remote.
"The present head of the bank is tlie
Hon. (jeorge A. Cox, who is also President of the Crow's Nest Pass Coal Company, and of the Canada Life Insurance

D. C. McRae yesterday received the
following letter from YV. S. Keith, win
left Greenwood between two and three
months since to join the South Africa
Constabulary :
Steamer Montford,
Easter Sunday, 1901.
Dear Mac���Well we have been nine
days out from Halifax and hope to be at
Cape Verde sometime tomorrow. We
have been rather unfortunate so far,
having lost two men since sailing by
death in hospital aud one man by jumping ur falling overboard. The only man
of our troop who has been sick is Nicholson, of Greenwood, but he is getting
allrigbt now. There are more than 1,200
troops aboard, and counting ship's crew
and officers, about 1,400 in all, but we
are as comfortable as could be expected,
much more so than we were in the Ottawa cattle sheds, which were simply
rank, i. e. the grub served out was rank,
and a large number were sick.
We have seen nothing of interest since
we started, but have been favored with
delightful weather and a calm sea. We
have no idea yet as to our destination in
Africa but will probably get information
at Cape Verde. It is rumored that the
western troops will go direct to tlie front,
if there is any fiont when we arrive,
while the others will go direct to Magers-
fontein for a few weeks for drill antl then
be sent in detachments for patrol duty.
I hope such will be the case.
The western men are larger, healthier-
looking and older than the eastern
troops and will no doubt at first stand
hardships much better.
When you have time to spare write to
me tbe Greenwood news. My address
will be "B Squadron. Canadian contingent, South Africa Constabnlory, Cape
Town or elsewhere." This address will

An attempted shooting was airetl in
the police court this week, or, more
correctly speaking, it was not sufficiently aired. Tlie woman in the case did
the shooting, but missed. Tlie aldermen of Greenwood should pass a bylaw
providing instruotion in pistol practice
for belligerent females. Citizens, as a
rule, have no objections to gun practice
by experts, but when a woman gets a
"bunch" that she can shoot, and
misses three men at one shot, something should be done for the protection
of tlie respectable element of the community. In a small city like Greenwood,
a miss in pistol practice, such as occurred Monday night, may safely be
termed a calamity.
