THE GREENWOOD MINER
Vol. 1, No. 40.
GREENWOOD, B. C, FRIDAY, NOV. 3, 1899.
.00 Per Year.
LOVED NOT WISELY
But Too Well-Sad Ending of
a Strange Romance.
Dave Bryant in a Pit of Jealousy
Shoots Himself in the House of
Annie Moore.
When the Miner representative, in
company with the Chief of police, called to see Annie Moore, on Gold street
on Sunday to get the particulars of Dave
Bryant's suicide, he found her much
agitated and in tears. Late Saturday
night news was spread about that Bryant had shot himself in his cabin, and
on Sunday morning there were all kinds
of rumors of foul play. The public
imagination is very strong in such cases
and the fact that he had been found
dead in a house of prostitution was
enough to justify any assumptions of
that kind. As it turned out, however,
it was a pure caBe of suicide.
Annie Moore when asked for the particulars said. "I suppose it will all
come out anyway and I might as well
tell it now as any time." She then proceeded to recite the particulars connected with the event from first to last,
with perfect frankness and every evidence of truthfulness. Her story was
corroborated in every detail at the coroner's inquest on Monday. Without going into all the annuities, the facts are
briefly these: Dave Bryant was in love
with Annie and, as every one who knew
them, believed him infatuated. It
had long been his desire to sell his
claims, and take her out of the life of
shame she led, marry her and give her
a home of her own. He was getting old,
had had few of the pleasures or com-
fortB of home life, and wanted to settle
down peacefully for the rest of his days.
If truth be told Annie confessed to a
strong liking for him in return, and if
everything had gone right she would
probably have married and gone to live
with him. He, however, was very jealous of her, and as she put it, hated to
see her talking to any other man. Naturally, in the conditions of her life he
was irritated when he came to her house
to see others there, and for that reason,
as it was her business to entertain
them, she would have preferred if he
had stayed away, or advised her of his
coming, which he never did.
On a number of occasions he bemoaned the fute which seemed to stand
in the way of his desire in life, and several times threatened to kill himself if
he did not succeed in selling his claims,
and make some money. She always
chided him for talking that way. He
seemed to be followed by bad luck, having more than once been on the point
of making a stake. Latterly he had not
been so depressed, and had actually
about completed a deal for his claims in
Copper camp, and had made arrangements to go with some parties on Sunday, the next day. On Saturday he
called Severn 1 times at the house.
Each time there were other men in the
house, and their presence annoyed him,
although each time he went away apparently in good enough  humor.    He
was drinking some.    He came again at
eight o'clock,   The last time he came
was at 10 :'M precisely.    When  he  rang
the bell Jessie Montgomery went to the
door, and in response to an  inquiry for
Annie Moore she sent him to her  room,
and   then   went and   informed  Annie,
who  was serving drinks at the  time.
When Annie went to see Dave, a friend
of his who was in  the house followed,
and  the   two   men   had   some   words,
pleasant on  the  part  of the latter, but
very unpleasant on the part of Dave.
The friend went out, and it was evident
that deceased was in bad temper.   Pulling off his coat and throwing it down he
said:    "Do you know what I am going
to do?"   Annie said  she did  not.   He
then whipped out of bis pocket a 45-cali-
bre Colt's revolver, a "regular cannon,"
as   the chief  called  it, and  pointed it
straight at her.    She caught the gun in
one hand ae.d his arm in the other,  and
struggled to take it from him.    He told
her it  was loaded and cocked, and said
if it went off they might both die.   "I
don't cure, Dave," she said,   "if  I have
to die, 1 might as well die right  here."
By a violent push  ho flung her away
from him, and then pointed  the  pistol
straight   at   his    breast.     "My    God,
Dave!" she shouted, "if you  have any
respect for me don't do that."    He said :
"I have no respect for you, or any one
else just now," and pulling the  trigger
shot himself straight through the heart,
and fell back on the bed dead    The
bullet went through his body,  and  was
found afterwards by Dr. Foster,   having
fallen out of the undershirt  when  the
body   was  removed.    A  physician  and
the chief of police were called immediately, and the body  removed to Gully
& Co.'s undertaking rooms.
Although the chief of police had satisfied himself as to the cause of death,
and all thu circumstances connected
with it, in order to allay suspicion the
coroner deemed it wiser to hold an inquest. A jury was empannelled as follows : Mayor Hardy, foreman, F. J.
Finucane, Duncan Ross, II. A. King,
J, E. Hooper, and J. L. White. Annie
Moore and several of the others of her
house were examined, all the evidence
confirming the verdict of suicide that
was returned.
The deceased was an old-timer here, a
well-known prospector, and one who
was well-liked. He came here from
Calgary iu the Northwest territory, lias
a brother in New Westminster, and a
nephew named Dave Barton living in
Greenwood. It is understood, too, that
a daughter not of wedlock still lives in
Calgary, lie was born in Kent Co.,
Now Brunswick, and lived in Greenwood about three and a half years. He
was the discoverer of Copper camp,
where his claims were. All in all he
was a man of good parts, but eccentric
and quick-tempered.
R. J. Moffat, New Westminster, B. C.
and Mrs. Moffat, are in the city staying
with their daughters, the Misses Moffat,
of the telephone and Pringle & Whiteside's otlices. Mr. Moffat is representing the World Manufacturing Co., of
Cincinnati, 0., who manufacture the
Quaker bath cabinet, and other health
specialties.
C. P. R. IN BOUNDARY
President  Shaughnessy Deals
With Its Policy
In the Boundary Country ���Will Be
Fair to All, and Do all in Its Power to Develop District's Resources.
A. W. Leonard, engineer of the  Ironsides mine, Phoenix,  died   in   the  contractors' hospital, Greenwood, on Saturday last  and   was  buried  on   Monday.
I The cause of death was pnuemonia.
Respecting the personality and position of President Shaughnessy of the C.
P. R. it is not necessary to speak at
length. His visit to Greenwood was in
an official capacity, but apart from his
official status his presence was, of course
a matter of peculiar personal interest.
In the days gone by he was in the public
estimate somewhat overshadowed by his
notable predecessor who is, as an inventor, originator and conceiver a more
remarkable man���an imperialist in the
magnitude and character of his enterprises and in his political sympathies as
well���a product of the age of great activity and big things. Although not a
native of this country, upon assuming
his position as general manager of the
C. P. R. he entered into the spirit of its
possibilities from a Canadian and Imperial point of view, and immediately
set about developing the enterprise on
lines suggested by such possibilities. He
succeeded even beyond the anticipations
of those who had long ago dreamed political dreams about the country���
another case of the man and the opportunity having met.
Mr. Shaujdmessy, while apparently
sharing fully the spirit actuating and
inspiring his predecessor, is essentially
the man after the fact���one calculated
by training and capability to carry on
effectively a f.reat work and fully consummate it. He succeeded to the presidency
at an opportune time. He strikes the
observor as a pre-eminently a business
man, with clear cut and well defined
views, remarkable in detail, keen, full of
vital force and fairminded and frank���a
man of affairs, with sound, quick judgment. He divests himself entirely, as a
man in his | osition and merit can always afford to do, of the air of officialism
and is consequently one who falls quickly into favor with the interviewer, and
consequently popular in newspaperdom.
A well known Canadian writer gives this
estimate of him:
The qualities of his mind are thoroughly
modem, and it exactly the service of this
greatest brand of modern public service. Ardent ami untlr ig lie lias the ability to do much
work, ami iiis shrewd common sense ami prodigious inciiiorj 'liable him to guide that-work
to the very best advantage.
As promised last week the Minuk has
pleasure in presenting his views expressed in conversation with its representative. The President is well pleased
with the road his company has built
into, the Boundary country, and it is
I understood, with Mr. Peterson and Mr.
Cambie, complimented Messrs Tye and
Rice, and the construction Staff generally, on what had been accomplished.
When asked Cor a statement in a general
way for publi ation, he said the C. P. R.
had undertook to build a railway into
the country, which would meet its requirements,  and it   had   done  it.    The
work was one of great magnitude, and in
some   respects   exceptional.    No   other
railway had ever built in lines and spurs
to mining camps as the C. P. R. had
done. That was something that mine
owners were expected to do themselves.
The Company however, was anxious to
do all it could to carry out its development
to the letter. They had faith in the
future of the district, as was shown by
the fact that the sum of five million dollar* had been spent on the railway.
Their desire was to give the beBt service
possible, and to meet the wishes of the
people in every way possible.
"Do you intend to extend the line
beyond Midway at the present time?"
was asked. "After spending five millions, we must take wind," was the suggestive reply. "There has been considerable talk of the C. P. R. building into
Republic." was also ventured. "Republic is on the other side" seemed to
express all that was in the President's
mind on that subject. "No," he added
after a moment's reflection, "we are
fully engaged in developing our own
resources."
The Miner next introduced the subject of freight rates, which has been
canvassed somewhat. "Isn't it a little
early to talk about freight rates before
our schedule has been published.
"Well, I think our rates will be found
satisfactory. We want to treat the
people fairly, and give no reasonable
ground for complaint. Of course, there
never was a railway that had not complaints from somebody. We always
expect that; and I may say that where
they are well founded we try to make
matters right. We are endeavoring to
meet the mine owners so as to enable
them with ourselves to reap satisfactory
profit from their mining operations and
to afford them all the facilities possible.
So far they are well satisfied. It is desired to do the very best we can. Of
course, we at all times must look to the
interests of the railway company. We
have spent a lot of money in this country
and we must look to returns before anticipating too much,
"Our policy in regard to the smelting
industry," Mr. Shaughnessy went on to
say, "will be one looking to the development of the industry, and it will bu fair
and without discrimination. Few persons realize the importance of snieltoii*.
It is the most important industry \��u
can have. It is one of the rich fruits
of mining to be reaped by a country.
That is one reason why we so strongly
opposed the Corbin charter. It is not
because of rivalry in local traffic,
and the C. P R. has never opposed
railways where the ordinary traffic ia
concerned. It is because the ores are
carried out of the country and smelted.
Corbin would never build into to is
country for the local traffic that could
be obtained, but for the ores that are to
be shipped. Railway men understand
that. We want to have Spokanes, and
Buttes, and Delivers on this side, and
there is room with the mineral wealth
of this district to have three such cities
between Midway and Rossland if tho
ore is kept and smelted in this country."
"Then do we understand you to still
oppose the building of the Kettle River
railway?" was asked. "Certainly. The
same reasons exist now that always existed, and we propose to use every effort in our power to retain the smelting
industry in the country."
Mr. Shaughnessy was then questioned
as to terminal rates, the location of the
divisional point, and other matters im-

THE   C.    P.    R.    IN    BOUNDARY.
Readers of the Miner will be pleased
to note from the interview with the
President of the C. P. R. published in
another column that the intentions of
the Company are to deal fairly and liberally with the merchants and mine
owners of the Boundary country, and
that an effort will be made to do all in
its power to meet the wishes and requirements of the people. It is to be hoped
that the programme will be carried out
fully, and there is no reason to believe
that there is any other idea than the one
given expression to by Mr. Shaughnessy.
Of course, and quite properly, too, a good
deal of stress is laid on the investment
of capital in the Columbia & Western
railway, which has been a very expensive
undertaking. Due credit must be given
to the C. P. R. for the manner in which
it has carried out its agreement with the
country so far, and if that may be accepted as an earnest of the sincerity of
the assurances of fair treatment and
further development, in the future we
may look forward with some degree of
confidence to harmonious relations ex-
isting hereafter.
Regarding the extension of the line
past Midway, Mr. Shaughnessy was noncommittal, but it is the opinion of the
Miner from information obtained from
fairly reliable sources that the road will
be built on"to the main line at or near
Hope as soon as is practicable. The
outlook in the Similkameen would seem
to justify the construction of a line into
that country quite as much as it did into
the Boundary district. It is to be presumed that a subsidy will be asked for
at the next session of parliment. and it
may be taken for granted, too, that for a
connection which means so much to the
people of this district as direct communication with the coast, the people of
this district would heartily assist in
securing substantial aid from the Government. What this district wants
more than anything else just now in the
railway line is direct connection with
Coast cities; and so far as the latter are
concerned it would to some extent compensate for the advantage the eastern
shippers have in Kootenay and Boundary
by reason of the Crow's Nest Pass line
having been built,
ELECTRIC   LIGHT   FRANCHISE.
In consequence of the electric light
franchise for the city having expired on
the 25th ult., the field was thrown open
to competition, and several proposals
have been received. The city is very
badly in need of street lighting, and
time is really one of the essential elements of the contract. If it were otherwise, and the city had not so many
financial responsibilities on its shoulders for the present and ensuing year, it
would pay it to undertake its own
street lighting. The Miner is in favor
of retaining such franchises for the people wherever possible.
At the present time there are practically three kinds of proposal before
the council���one to own and operate the
electric lighting municipally, one to
give the franchise to a company for a
term of years on the condition of installing the lighting plant quickly, and the
other to combine the electric lighting
and a tramway to Phcenix in one general scheme, the city to guarantee a certain proportion of the cost. The last-
named would be undoubtedly the most
popular and desirable if it could be
brought about. The difficulty in the
way of combining the two, that is in
making the one conditional on the other,
is that a charter has to be secured for
the tramway, which is impracticable
within the space of three months at
least, and it means that the lighting of
the streets must be thrown over until
next year as a consequence.
As to the other proposals before the
council on Wednesday night, they were
so nearly alike in important respects
that it really meant the choice between
the people making them ; and very naturally a syndicate of local men had the
preference. It is now a matter of arranging details. Nothing has been definitely settled. If the council and Mr.
Mcintosh's associates can agree on
terms a by-law will be submitted to ratify the agreement, and there is every
prospect of it carrying.
Clarence J. McCuaig, the well known
Montreal mining man, who is largely
interested in the Payne mine, Slocan,
says a case will be tried to test the constitutionality of the eight hour law, or
in other words, the right of the Province to pass such legislation will be challenged. The Payne will Btart up paying !fo\50 for ten hours' work, and if
fined will carry the case by appeal to
the higher courts. As the case is not
sub judice, it may be permitted to remark that the right of the provincial legislature to deal with such matters has never yet been questioned.
They have full power with respect, and
are restricted, to laws dealing with
property and private rights. It is quite
a different thing passing an eight hour
law, however, much difference of opinion there may be as to the wisdom of
such legislation, to passing laws discriminating against Chinese and Japanese,
which latter is clearly an invasion of
Imperial rights and, therefore, out of
our power as a Province. The Supreme
Court of the United States has declared
the eight hour laws passed by several
of the legislatures on the other side to
be unconstitutional, but there is not
perfect analogy between state rights
and provincial rights as they exist there
and here, respectively. In fact, as constituted, the Supreme Court of the
United States ia, as the intepreter of the
written constitution of the United
States, practically the law maker of
that country,
"Darkest Africa" is now at the seat
of war.

CASCADE   WATER   POWER   CO.
Six Thousand Horse Power Being Rapidly Developed.
As fast as men and money can do it,
the great water power available at Cascade is being harnessed for mining,
smelting and industrial purposes.
Within the last few weeks great progress has been made on the dam at the
head of the gorge, which, when completed, will be 350 feet long, and 35 feet
high at the highest point.
S. F. Quinlivan, who has the contract
for filling the cribs with rocks, has gotten well under way with his part of the
work, and now has a good sized force on
it.
D. P. Barber, who is clearing the right
of way, 132 feet wide, for the double-
pole line from Phoenix toward Cascade,
has the larger part of the contract done,
and will complete it in the course of a
couple of weeks.
Every part of the work undertaken, in
fact, is now a scene of great activity,
presaging to some extent the importance
it will be in the future, not only to Cascade, but to the entire Boundary country. It i.- proposed to develop (1,000

An English farmer, though severely
cross-examined on the matter, remained
very positive as to the identity of some
ducks which he alleged had been stolen
from him. "How can you be so certain?" asked the counsel for the prisoner; "I have some ducks of the same
kind in my own possession." "Very
likely," was the cool answer of the farmer ; "those are not the only ducks I've
had stolen."

"I didn't like your prayer very much
this morning," said a fault-finding deacon to his minister. "What was wrong
with it?" "Well, in the first place, it
was too long, and then I thought it contained two or three expressions that
were unwarranted." "I am sorry it
meets with your disapproval, deacon,"
the good man responded, "but you
must bear in mind that the prayer was
not addressed to you."
An ex-judge is cashier of a certain
bank. One day day recently he refused
to cash a check offered by a stranger.
"The check is all right," he said, "but
the evidence you offer in identifying
yourself as the person to whose order
it is drawn is scarcely sufficient." "I've
known you to hang a man on less evidence, judge," was the stranger's response." "Quite likely," replied the
ex-judge; "but when it comes to letting
go of cold cash, we have to   be careful"
The late Hall McAllister some years
ago entertained a visiting scientist at
the Union Club, before its amalgamation with the Pacific, and during the
evening���a particularly foggy one���made
some whimsical remark conveying the
idea that fog was an excellent conductor of sound. The scientist took exception to this novel theory, and asked Mr.
McAllister on what it was based. "One
phenomena which we have all observed," returned the ready jurist; "on
an evening like this we hear the foghorn quite distinctly, but when there is
no fog we cannot hear it at all."
A Scotch farmer who was a bachelor,
and a little past his prime, decided that
the best thing he could do was to marry
a certain middle-aged neighbor of his
who did not lack for money. He went,
wooed, and won, and his estate soon
took on an air of greater prosperity.
One of the first purchases he made with
bia wife's money was a horse. When
he brought it home he called his wife
out to see it. After admiring the animal
she said: "Well, Sandy, if it hadna
been for my siller it wadna hae been
here." "Jenny, replied Sandy, "if it
hadna hae been for yer siller, ye wadna
hae been here yersel'!"
Henry Keyes, of Vermont, was a lifelong Democrat. Governor Mattacks���
or Judge Mattacks���was for a brief period a Democrat also. After he got to be
a judge he soon became a Whig. While
holding court at St. Johnsbury he occupied a room at the leading hotel, which,
as was usual during court time, was
full. Late at night Mr. Keyes arrived
and wanted a bed. The landlord informed him that every bed in the bouse
had two in it except the one that was
occupied by Judge Mattacks, "Go up
and tell him that Henry Keyes wants to
Bleep .with him."   The landlord went
up, rapped at tlie judge's door, and told
him his errand. "Henry Keyes," said
the judge, half asleep; "Henry Keyes,
of Newbury? Democrat? Oh, yes, I've
had it once; let him in."
Sir Redvers Henry Buller, who left
England recently to assume command
of all the British forces in South Africa,
is an old campaigner, who has served
his time in the country to which he is
going, and who is regarded in London
as the most capable man for the command. Sir Redvers has been a soldier
since he was nineteen. At that youthful age he was a commissioned officer of
the Thirteenth Rifles, and on pure
merit, combined with dogged determination, hard service, and remarkable
bravery, forged his way ahead to the
high position he now holds. In the
war iri Zululand he won the rare Victoria Cr oss in the retreat of Ihhlobane.
On that occasion J he saved the life of a
brother officer who was retiring on foot
hotly pursued by the Zulus. Since that
time Buller has been a conspicuous figure in the fierce fighting of the British on
land invaded by their forces. He took
part in the actions of Tel-el-Keber, and
Kassassin during the Egyptian war of
1882, and served with distinction under
Wolse ley in the Sudan expedition of
1884.

THE   GREENWOOD   MINEB.
HON. CARTERCOTTON
Pays the Boundary and Greenwood an Official Visit
And is Interviewed by the Board of
Trade���He Promises to Give Attention to Various Matters.
EHOLT ECHOES.
On Saturday afternoon Hon. F, Carter-Cotton, Minister of Finance and
Commissioner of Lands and Works,
arrived in the city accompanied by an
old Vancouver friend, A. W. Ross of
Columbia. Immediately upon his arrival he was waited upon by Mayor Hardy,
who drove him to the new school building to impress on him its relation to the
populated portion of the city, and its
convenience for school purposes. After
that he was taken to the Club and introduced to a number of our citizens. At
half past five a hastily summoned meet
ing of the Council of the Board of Trade
was held in tbe club rooms to interview
him with reference to the road to White's
camp, the salaries of the teachers and
other matters connected with the new
school, the appointment of a supreme
court registrar, in Greenwood and the
road to the West Fork, regarding which
there is considerable complaint on the
part of those going into the country.
All of these matters were very fully
and frankly discussed, Mr. Cotton in
each case promising to take up and consider carefully upon Mb return and with
such assurances as were quite satisfactory to the members present. Upon
motion of Mayor Hardy and Duncan
Ross, Mr. Cotton was tendered a vote of
thanks for his presence and courteous
hearing of the Board's views. Later on
a dinner was tendered him at the Imperial by a few of his friends and others.
He was evidently very well pleased with
his reception in the Boundary, and especially in Greenwood, and in his remarks to the Council of the Board of
Trade took occasion to express his
appreciation of the possibilities of the
district surrounding the city which he
regarded as unsurpassed on the continent.
It was understood that he would be
present at the meeting held the same
evening at Rendell's Hall to discuss the
electric light franchise, but did not make
an appearance. Later on the representative of the Miner had a chat with the
Minister of Finance on the political
outlook. He said there was no prospect
of an immediate election. The Government was sure of a majority of two when
the House, met if not more. Nothing
was said about other matters, but in
the Rossland Miner in the course of an
interview it is stated :
"He reiterated his previous statement
that the eight-hour law had come to stay
and stated that after leaving Nelson on
his last visit to the Kootenays he had
met with two of the principal American
mine managers in the Slocan, when the
whole matter was discussed and as a re-
Btilt of his talk then and negotiations
eince he understood that an arrangement
was being arrived at whereby work was
to be resumed at once on a basis for the
present of $3.25 per day of eight hours.
But in anv event  the eight-hour law
Fine, sunny weather prevails, but the
brown slopes, and the snow-capped
hills remind us that winter is not far
hence.
The traveling public must admire the
substantial appearance of our town,
only six weeks old. The large, solid,
well finished buildings wear an aspect
of "we are here to stay."
Work commenced Monday under the
management of M. Tebo on the new
road from Eholt to Long Lake camp via
Bear lake. Th? road will be an easy
grade not over four miles long, thus
greatly facilitating the transacting of
business with that camp.
Work on the B. C. mine is progressing favorably. In the new double compartment shaft, which is 10)^x8 feet,
they are down fourteen feet, sinking
from the 165-foot level. This shaft will
be 100 feet in depth, making a total
depth of 205 feet, Mr. Watson, of Rossland, has charge of the work. Eleven
machine men from that city went in
Tuesday morning to swell his force.
A contract has been let for the ship
ment of 00,000 tons of ore from the B. C.
mine as soon as the steel reaches there.
The Oro Denero is fast coming to the
front. They have twenty feet of solid
ore which assays $79 to the ton. Last
week while at work driving a tunnel
from the main shaft out to the railroad,
they encountered a blind lead eight feet
in width. They expect to cross-cut the
main lead about thirty feet further on.
Two car leads of steel are already in
tbe yard for the branch, and the Bteel
to the B, C. mine will be laid within
two weeks.
The survey for the C. P. R. water
tank has been completed, and it will be
erected at the junction of the branch
and the main line.
It is understood that a company has
about been formed in Greenwood for the
purpose of erecting and operating a $20.-
000 brewery in Eholt. The favorable
position of Eholt in relation to the various mining camps and towns of the
Boundary no doubt dictated the choice
of Eholt.

FAIRVIEW FACTS.
The Fairview Corporation are putting
through 1000 tons of Stemwinder ore
through the mill. Ii the run proves satisfactory, that is to say, if it goes at least
$5 to the ton, the mill will be operated
all winter. It is anticipated that the
values will average $6 a ton.
The Dominion Consolidated are hard
at work on their claims which are an
extension to the Stemwinder. They are
putting in a six-compressor plant, which
is now on the road from Penticton.
Their boarding and bunk houses have
been completed. The vein in widening
and improving with depth.
Kruger Mountain is reported as looking well. There is considerable activity
at Keremeos. Messrs. Morris and Me-
Dougall are very well satisfied with the
properties they have acquired, and are
developing them.
On the Nickle Plate, Camp Headly,
there is said to be a most remarkable
showing of ore, in fact, a tremendous
body is in sight. There is, it is stated, a
40-foot ledge of ore, which has not gone
less than $40. Undoubtedly, there is a
promise of a great mine there.
Princeton on the 17th inst. at which resolutions were passed unanimously asking
for the road between Princeton and
Keremeos to be built this fall and a good
wagon road to Hope, and the construction of a bridge across the Similkameen
at Princeton, The resolutions were forwarded to the Government.
INTERIOR   TOPICS.
Mr. Justice Martin did not hold a
session of the Supreme Court in Rossland this week as intended, and the local
litigants are accordingly disappointed
There has been no sitting of the court
there since last February. Mr. Justice
Martin had to attend a meeting of the
full court in Victoria.
The Canadian Gold Fields Syndicate
has purchased a controlling interest in
the Moyie Mining Co., owning the Moyie
and the Queen of the Hills, Moyie. The
consideration is said to be $200,000 cash.
J. W. Drewry, Rossland put the deal
through.
August Heinze is again the subject of
litigation. He is being sued by the
Anaconda Copper Mining Co., for a
seven-twelfths interest in all the ores
extracted from the Parnell lode in the
Summit Mining district, Montana.
The question of improved communication for the Similkameen district is
occupying the attention of the people
there and also of the people of the Okanagan valley, who are anxious to get in
there from Peachland on the Okanagan
Lake.   A mass   meeting was  held at

ELECTRIC LIGHTING,
And Tramway to Phoenix are
the Subjects
Discussed Most Prominently at the
Council Board ��� Two Applications
for Franchise.
There were present on Monday night
the Mayor  and Aldermen Wood, Galloway, Sutherland, Fisher, and Beath
and a large attendance of citizens
Messrs. Pringle & Whiteside, solicitors for Miller Bros, jewelers, asked to
have the by-law made effective against
itinerant purveyors of jewelry, etc.
A letter was received from Messrs.
Pringle & Whiteside as follows:
" With respect to the'electrio light franchise
which we lire sucking on behalf of our clients,
P. Welch & Co., wo arc iustrueted to inform you
that on account of the desire manifested to eou-
ple with an electric light system a tramway to
Phoenix, our clients are desirous and willing to
build the tramway, if the same can be made
possible, and will enter into such agreement as
it may appear to you to be necessary to guarantee the building of such tramway, providing
that on your part you will give them, as an
assurance of bonafides, an undertaking of binding effect, that 5 per cent, interest will be
guaranteed on a bonded indebtedness of the
tramwayjof $100,000, and further that you will
indemnify them from all expenses incurred In
endeavoring to obtain the charter, should the
same be refused by the Lieutenant-Governor in
Council."
The accounts presented were referred
to the finance committee. The contractors for the new city building asked
for $1,000 on account, which was granted.
C. M. Archibald asked for street room
for building material for building on
Copper street; granted.
On motion of Aid. Galloway, the
communication of Pringle & Whiteside,
re electric lights, was considered. Aid.
Wood wanted the city to put in the
lighting plant with a view to incorporating it with a tramway to Phcenix.
The Dominion Copper Co. had a charter independent of the Lieutenant-Governor in Council, and could build under
it. Mr. Pringle stated there was no
such charter existing. In reply to a
question from Aid. Galloway'the mayor
said a by-law had been given notice of,
with P. Welch & Co. as incorporators.
Aid. Galloway agreed with Mr. Wood
about the desirability of incorporating
the two schemes in one. With that in
view he did not believe in going on with
the by-law. He was more in favor of
giving the charter to local people, and
would not in any event agree to a charter that could not be handed hack lo
the city at any time at a reasonable advance on the cost, Mr. Pringle at this
stage presented a marked cheque for
$5,000, and remarked that his client*'
offer covered the exact contention of
Aid. Galloway. Re tramway charter, it
was only fair that the company should
be indemnified for the cost of securing
it, as there were difficulties in the way
that some did not appreciate.
At this juncture Mr. Shaw, of Hallett
& Shaw, asked for a franchise for electric light on behalf of Duncan Mcintosh
and associates. He represented Greenwood citizens entirely, and they also
were willing to put iu a marked cheque
for $5,000 which was handed to the city
clerk, and to agree to forfeit their deposit if not built within ninety days from
the passing of the by-law. Mr. Mcintosh said that he would submit a proposition in a few days,  for an absolute
franchise for ninety years. He would
agree to turn it over to the city at any
time on the payment of a reasonable
advance on cost, twenty or twenty-five
per cent.
It was then suggested that there
should be an adjournment made for two
days to give Mr. Mcintosh time to submit a proposition, which was agreed to.
Mr. Mcintosh said he would submit an
offer within that time. Mr. Pringle
wanted the council to consider his proposition.
Some discussion followed, and the
suggestion of a two days' adjournment
was agreed to. Mr. Wood remarked
that they wanted a tramway to Phcenix,
and were going to have it. Aid. Sutherland declared squarely in favor of Mr.
Mcintosh's proposition. Aid. Fisher
supported Aid. Galloway's views.
The council then considered the bylaw to amend the revenue by-law.
It was proposed to charge a license for
theatres every six months; insurance
agents, without residence ���; insurance
companies, with resident agents ���; for
vending jewelry by non-resident vendors ���. Aid. Galloway, seconded by
Aid. Wood, proposed adding a clause
imposing a license for vending liquors
in a theatre concert hall $100 per month,
only one such license to be granted until
there was a population of 8,000.
Mayor Hardy suggested that last proposal was a matter for the license commissioner to deal with, and doubted if it
could be included in the present by-law.
Aid. Fisher objected to it altogether. If
he was to be prevented from getting a
license he would go to Phoenix.
The position Messrs. Wood and Galloway took was that there was not room
for more than one good music hall, and
if there were more they would be turned
to doubtful purposes, gambling and the
like. The Mayor and Alderman Fisher
said that was a matter for the police to
regulate. The clause was referred to the
city solicitor for his opinion, to be taken
up at the adjourned meeting.

sure returns.

OUR   ROSSLAND   LETTER.
It seldom rains here without pouring,
and this may betaken conjointly, figuratively as well as literally. The gratifying increase in the ore output has been
followed by a financial flush in which
the nine of diamonds is trump. There
is now something to "brag on," though
I earnestly hope that our eminent tinhorns will draw it mildly. The outturn
of ore has now reached about 134,000
tons for this year, and in all probability
it will have reached 140,000 by the end
of the present month. The value grossly estimated is about $2,400,000. The
financial overflow which I have indicated are the twin facts, a Le Roi dividend and a Centre Star flotation.
Briefly these may be thus explained:
The Le Roi has a nominal capital of
$5,000,000, or 200,000 shares of the par
value of $25 each. On each share the
management pays five shilling sterling
on November 7 as a dividend equal to
$258,000 in all. The Le Roi up to April
1898 had paid $825,000 in dividends. If
we add the present declared dividend of
$250,000 to this we have for the Le Roi
on declared profit account $1,075,000,
equal to about 21 per cent, on nominal
capital since the business began. This
nominal capital amounts to $5,000,000.
If to the Le Roi dividend we add the
War Eagle to October, 1899, $440,250,
we have a total of $1,515,250. The nominal capital involved in the production
of this one-half millions of dollars of dividends amounts to about $7,000,000, a
little upwards of 21 per cent, on nominal capital extending over a period of
three years; but if we take aboul half
this sum as representing the cash capital, and consider the time as three years,
the rate will be 42 per cent., or about 14
per cent per annum.
The other matter, the flotation of the
1,320,000 share of the Centre Star Mining Co., by the Gooderam-Blackstock
syndicate, without waiting for the west
or London, shows how strong this syndicate is, and that its financiering is
healthy. There has been no attempt to
manipulate, the only preference shown
was that to War Eagle shareholders,
who were given a first chance at $1.50
per share. The Center Star shares are
valued at about $15 per share, assuming
the same proportion with regard to the
number of shares. This is an honest
method of financiering, and it has none
of the wate/ed stock features about it.
When the Centre Star and the War
Eagle begin shipping under their new
management, the ore output will not be
easy to follow.
I find that the Le Roi has shipped
about 42,000 tons so far this year, the
War Eagle 47,000, the Centre Star 9,000,
and the Iron Mask about 4,000.
So far as Red mountain is concerned,
the preperations for ore outturn continue to be made on an eastern scale.
The Le Roi has made arrangements to
ship pay ore from its old dump, nothing is to be wasted, and a policy of
economical management is to be vigorously enforced.
Taking the situation from a general
point of view, 1 know of no previous
autumn in this dension when the outlook was more hopeful than it is now.

THE   GREENWOOD   MINER.
A PRELIMINARY MEETING.
II  I
'. To discuss the position in regard to electric
lighting.
Pursuant to a notice by Mayor Hardy
calling a meeting on Saturday night last
j in Rendall's hall, 25 or 30 citizens  were
l present.   His   Worship   occupied    the
I chair.   The meeting was called for the
s purpose of obtaining an expression  of
i opinion as to the best thing to be done
under the circumstances, the franchise
i previously held having lapsed, and to
I "pass on the merits of any scheme that
| might be   presented.   Mr. Pringle on
i behalf of clients, Messrs, P.   Welch &
j Co., presented a proposal for their con-
' eideration to instal within ninety days
an electric light plant.   Messrs. Wood
and Galloway wanted to see a scheme
( embodying both electric light and tramway to Phcenix.   Mr. Wood moved a
resolution to that effect, the council to
go on putting in the electric light itself
]  and then handing it over to the company that would undertake to build a
tramway, the city guaranteeing interest
I  on the cost of the latter.    Mr. Pringle
}  moved in amendment that the meeting
endorse   the   proposal   of   his   clients.
Thos. Miller favored the city owning its
own light, and moved in further amend-
1   ment that a by-law be submitted raising
$17,500 for the purpose.   Duncan Ross
;   thought, owing to the onus on the city
on account of water works, it was impracticable to take up electric light now
as a municipal undertaking.   The Mayor
was in favor of the city owning its own
electric light if it were possible,  but it
had a good deal to undertake,  and sewerage was one of the things that must be
tackled.   If any one could show him how
the city   could raise   money he   would
favor putting in the electric light by the
city.   In  the   meantime   they  wanted
light in the worst way.   A   good deal
more was said on   all   sides, but   space
forbids enlarging.   A vote was taken on
the proposals, but there was no expression of opinion that could be taken as an
instruction to   the   council.   Only   five
voted for Mr. Wood's  motion, and two
for each of the   others.   The Mayor remarked that the council would have to
deal with the subject on its own responsibility.
