TBE CITY COUNCIL
The City Fathers Warm Up
on Banks.
BENDELL-CITT     CASE     AGAIN
An Attempt Made to Annul the Proceedings of the Special Meeting-
Change of Account Confirmed.
At the meeting of the city council
Monday evening there were present the
mayor and Aldermen Bannerman, Crop-
ley, Galloway, Sharpe and Sullivan.
After the reading of the minutes by
the city clerk, Alderman Sharpe cleared
.his throat. It was evident that there
was a weight on the conscience or mind
of the junior alderman for the North
ward. He had come there for explanations from the finance committee with
reference to changing bankers, but the
mayor interposed with a soothing
draught in the shape of the Municipal
act, which he read until the members
were in a state to consider the bank
question rationally.
Alderman Sharpe thought there should
be some very urgent reason forchanging
the account. He thought explanations
made by bank solicitor at special meeting were quite satisfactory.
Alderman Bannerman���Bank solicitor did not make this proposition until
he thought bank was going to lose the
account. The alderman did not appear
to understand that finance committee
had been trying for some time to get
Bank of Montreal people to come to
some definite arrangement in reference
to deposit of debentures as security for
an advance to the city, and that business men and workingmen to whom the
city were indebted were anxious for
their money. The bank had appropriated amounts received in payment
for licenses to take up a note payable on
or before the 1st of August, without
notifying council or finance committee.
Alderman Galloway thought bank
should have notified council before appropriating city funds.
Alderman Sharpe���The council should
have sent agreement back to bank solicitors, stating their objections.
Alderman Bannerman���Two propositions had been submitted to the finance
committee, one by the Bank of Montreal
and the other by the Canadian Bank of
Commeree. The proposal of the Bank
of Commerce was considered the better
one and accepted.
Alderman Galloway thought the finance committee acted hastily in consulting another banker before they had
finally decided on the proposition of the
city's bankers.
Alderman Sullivan���Members of the
council don't appear to understand that
the mayor had interviewed the Bank of
Montreal some time ago and debentures
were to have been deposited and
$10,000 placed to the credit of the city
on that security. Afterwards the city
was requested to pass a resolution
drafted by the bank's solicitor, which
was returned for translation or interpretation. Then a third proposition was
made by the bunk's solicitor in the
form of the agreement on the table and
a demand note. Here were three propositions made by the Bank of Montreal
inside of a month. First���The manager's statement to Mayor Hardy that
the debentures would be accepted as security for $10,000. Second���A resolution by the city solicitor, which no one
in the council could decipher; and
third, the agreement and demand note.
And still the finance commtttee were
censured for considering the third a
final proposition by the bank and acting upon it. The committee had the
right to accept or reject this proposal.
As an individual he would not think of
signing such an agreement in connection with his own business, neither
would he care to place the city's finances in such an awkward position.
Mr. Gray, acting for the city solicitor,
said the agreement was correct and
legal. The committee had the power to
recommend or otherwise, the council to confirm or reject the action of the
committee. If the agreement was not
final why did not the bank present an
agreement that was intended to be
final?
Alderman Galloway���The agreement
should have been considered by the full
council. He thought the finance committee had not the power to deal with
the matter without consulting counci
Alderman Sullivan suggested that the
resolution empowering the mayor, finance committee and clerk to deal with
the bank be read. The clerk read the
resolution, which gave full powers fo
parties uamed.
Moved by Alderman Croply, seconded
by Alderman Bannerman, that the minutes of the regular and special meeting
be adopted as read.
Alderman Galloway moved an amendment, seconded by Alderman Sharpe,
that that clause relating to the bank
account be Btruck out of the minutes of
the special meeting.
The original motion was carried by 3
to 2, the mayor not voting.
Communications were received from
F. W. Hart, for street grade on building. The clerk was instructed to inform him thatgrades bad not yet been
established in that portion of the city.
From H. Bunting and others, asking
that steps be placed on the south side of
Deadwood street, connecting Kimberly
with Skylark. Referred to street committee.
From C. F. Alston, reporting completion of coutract on Boundary avenue.
Received and filed.
lis
The street committee were instructed
to have flume contractorr make outlet to
F. B. Winnett's draw.
Alderman Sharpe placed his resignation as a member of the finance committee in the hands of the council. The
alderman had been away from the city
for the past six weeks, and unfortunately having become accustomed to the
rough road on the North Fork and uneven grading of streets in Grand Forks,
when he came back to Greenwood
and drove along the splendidly graded
streets imagined the finance committee
ead been squandering money. But
when Alderman Bannerman informed
him that no expenditures had been
made during his absence he reconsidered the matter.
Alderman Sharpe and Galloway
locked horns on the Boundary avenue
contract, but the difficulty shifted from
from Galloway to Bannerman and from
Bannerman to Sullivan, until Alderman
Sharpe had a tiff with all the members
of the council excepting Alderman
Cropley, who escaped.
The city solicitor was instructed to
haveE. V. Bonwell, Q.C., of Victoria,
move for a new trial iu the action of
Rendell & Co  vs. City.
The finance committee reported the
following accounts, which were passed
by tlie council:
Yale-Columbia Lumber Co $1,518 54
M. Shaw       46 80
Dr. Schon        5 00
The council then adjourned.

Tne Colombia Telephone Company Will String
Wires to Brewster, Wash.
The Columbia Telephone Company
are now engaged in extending the line
from Bolster to Brewster, the terminus
of the steamship line running from
Wenatche. Other towns to be tapped
by the system will be Chesaw, Molson,
Oro, Loomis and Conconully. The distance between Bolster and Brewster is
about 125 miles. Poles have been set
up for 60 miles of this distance, and
work will be commenced stringing the
wires this week. J. B. Donald is in
charge of the work.
AROUND THE CAMPS
Interesting Mining Items From
Twenty-Mile Creek.
THE ARLINGTON-BURNS GROUP
R, M.   McEntire    Visits   thi   Wes
Fork���Tunnel on the Review-
In Kimberly Camp.
TWETTY-MILE CREEK.
Your correspondent has been spending a few days looking over the various
properties in this district, one or two of
which are known a little on the outside
and are supposed to be good. ' The supposition is, I believe, correct.
Twenty-Mile camp is, in a business
way, no better off than the various
other camps in this part of the province,
and like the other camps it is no fault
of its own that such is the case.
PRESBYTERIAN EXCURSION
To Grand Forki Was Well Attended and
Proved An Enjoyable Affair.
The Presbyterian Sabbath school excursion to Grand Forks under the direction of the pastor, Rev. D. Campbell,
was generously pationized and a more
enjoyable occasion can scarcely be
imagined. All classes were treated
alike.
Carriages, which were placed at the
disposal of the excursionists for the
day by Mr. Campbell, were at the station when the train arrived and drove
the party to the picnic grounds for
dinner, after which different points of
interest were visited, principal among
which were the smelter and Mr. Covert's ranch. Mr. Covert proved himself a royal entertainer.
It is the intention of the school to repeat the excursion annually.
Mr. Campbell showed great enterprise
in undertaking the guarantee to the
railroad company, which amounted to
$75.00.
The Nickel Plate, owned by an
American company and managed by
Mr. K. Rogers, is employing about 30
men in and around the mine, and Mr.
Rogers, who lately obtained assistance
from the government, is putting on
about about 60 men to construct a road
direct from the mine to Princeton, a
distance of 26 miles. Up to date about
1200 feet of development work has been
done, and the company is at present engaged in running a 300-foot tunnel to
tap the ledge at a depth of 240 feet, and
I am reliably informed that an average
assay of the ore taken out will go at
least $200 to the ton. The company in
addition to the Nickel Plate own the
Copper Field, Silver Plato, Sunshine
fraotion, Sunnyside, Bulldog, Goldfield,
Electroplate, compos; og one group, all
of which have fine showings on them,
especidlly the Bulldog.
The Rollo group, owned by Peter
Scott and Robert Hedley of Nelson, consists of the Rollo, King, War Horse,
Kingston and Grand View, all of which
have fine showings. An average of 16
assays from the Rollo went $42.50.
The Climax, I. X. L., Copper Chief
and Czar, owned by George Cahill and
H. Yates, form a very promising group.
On the Climax the owners have run a
60-foot tunnel on the ledge, which assays from $12 to $20, and which they intend to further develop during the coming winter.
The Red Mountain group, owned by
J. Murphy and others, has some tremendous showings of ore containing a
fair percentage of coppor.
The above are only a few of the many
claims having fine showings, and which
are situated within a radius of three
miles of the Nickel Plate, and it seems
to those who take the trouble to look
over the camp that it is extraordinary
that more companies have not invested
in a camp which your correspondent
firmly believes will be one of the greatest wealth producers, not only in British Columbia, but in North America.
MINING BRIEFS.
Duncan Ross has sold to J. McDougall
of Montreal a 1-16 interest in the London claim in Deadwood camp.
While on a fishing trip in the West
Fork country R. M McEntire, of McEntire, McDonnell & Co., visited tho
principal properties of that district. He
says that there are numerous showings
along the West Fork that are equal to
those of any part of the Boundary in
size of ledge and vulue of the ore. He
visited the Carmi and Butcher Boy on
Carmi creek. The surface showings on
these claims are about five feet in
width. At a depth of 110 feet the ledge
on the Carmi has widened to 8 feet of
ore averaging $50 to the ton. The lead
has been prospected the whole length
of the claim, and also across the Butcher
Boy. On Beaver creek there are a
number of strong leads of very rich ore.
On Boomerang there is every indication of a number of claims now being
worked proving to be mines with development. Mr. McEntire believes that
the West Fork will be among the great
dividend-paying camps of the continent. His firm is not interested to any
extent in that district at present, but
hopes to be before another year.
George Henderson and John Myers
are working on the Black Diamond
group in Kimberly camp. On the group
there are three leads,  which have been
opened up by surface crosscuts, the
largest of which is 15 feet in width.
Tbey have been working on the Monte
Cristo, another claim in the same
group, on which a shaft has been sunk
30 feet mnl a tunnel run 60 feet across
the lend to the top of the shaft. There
is HI feet of ore In the crosscut at the
Inn torn of the shaft, giving good values
in gold.
K. A. Bielenberg has a force of men al
work am the Arlington,-Burns group,
adjoining the Buckhorn in Deadwood
camp. The new shaft is down 40 feet.
In previous work live shafts were sunk
and 850 feet of surface crosscutting, with
the object of prospecting the lend. The
surface showing ib very large, being
fully 400 feet in width, and has been
traced for 1200 feet in length. On the
Iron Top, an adjoining group, 1200 feet
of crosscutting has been done.
P. P. Sharpe, one of the heavy owners in the Golden Eagle mine, in
Brown's camp, rode over the other day
to get supplies. He stated that they
had ready for immediate shipment. 1000
sacks of ore, amounting to about two
carloads. The ore came from the 45 and
100-foot levels. About half a car had
already been hauled down to the railroad. The shipment will be sent to the
Trail smelter.
James Cunningham and John Milli-
gan made a new find about a mile
north of the Brooklyn, in Greenwood
camp, the past week. On the Port
Carbon there is a lead thirty feet in
width, giving indications on the surface
of being rich in copper, and on the Seymour, an adjoining claim located by
them, there is a 5-foot lead. These
claims lie on the Eholt slope.
Harry Shallonberger has completed
the assessment on the Yellowstone
group in Skylark camp A new shaft
was started on a quartz lead carryiug
good values in gold and silver. Other
developments consist of suriace open
cuts and a 50-foot shaft. It is stated
that capital will shortly be forthcoming
to develop the property on a large scale.
R. M. McEntire returned from a viist
to the Review mine this week. The
tunnel is in 500 feet. In nearly all nf
this distance the rock is well mineralized. A lead 40 feet in width lias been
crosscut by the tunnel. At about 650
feet it is expected the lead, for which
the tunnel is being run, will  be tapped.
James Cunningham and John Milli-
gan are working on the Yellow Jacket
in Greenwood camp. A shaft has been
sunk ten feet, and will be continued
until the Snowshoe load is encountered.
The shaft is about 300 feet east of the
SnowBhoe tunnel on line of lead.
Robert Wood has purchased from A.
Robinson of Beaverton the Alice M. and
Hard Times claims, adjoining the Sally
group up the West Fork of the Kettle
river. Mr. Woods has op.'iied up a rich
ledge on the Sally group, which he is developing. 	
W. C. Tilsley and Fred Wilson returned Tuesday after doing assessment
work on the Tredwell in Kimberly
camp. The shaft on the property is
down 16 feet in ore. The ledge is a very
large one, but the exact width is not
known. 	
Win. Hanna has been working the
pastmonth on the Virginius, in Wellington camp. The property lies south of
the Hartford, The ore is galena, carrying good gold values.
The Athelstan in Wellington camp is
Shipping ore. One hundred tons have
been hauled to the Winnipeg spur this
week. Shipments will average about
two cars a week.
On the J. and B. in Wellington camp
the shaft is down 30 feet, and the shaft
on the Hard Cash 18 feet, in very rid
ore. The ore is chalcopyrite in a quartz
gangue. 	
Two machines are   working  on   the
crossscut oil the Snowshoe,  Greenwooi
camp at the 175-foot level, and drifting
is being done at th; 300-foot level.
SMELTER SITE.
The location of the Laidlaw smelter
was settled the past week. The smeiter
will bo built about a half mile this side
of Boundary Falls and three miles from
Greenwood. Wood it Galloway of
Greenwood donated the greater part of
the land for the smelter site, and the
balance was purchased from L, Mc-
Cavven and ('. A. R. I.ambly, owners of
the Boundary Kails townsite. The site
is being surveyed by C. _3. Shaw of
Greenwood, and actual work will be.
Commenced on the smelter within a few
days.

LUM-CHESAW.
On Tuesday iast a marriage license
was issued by W. G, MeMynn to Dick
Luin of Rock creek and Julia Chesaw,
of Chesaw, Wash., and on the same day
the pair were made man and wife by the
Rev. Father Palmer.
Both are of old and respected families
in this district. The Ohesaw'fl were
prominent in the west long before the
Hudson's Bay company established
trading posts on the Pacific slope. Tho
Linn's are an ancient family of China,
and previous to the introduction of the
new style of wearing hair, known as the
pigtail, by the Manchu dynasty, were
princes in the laud ol rice and dope. The
father of the young man who has just
taken upon himself the responsibility of
managing a wife, emigrated to Honolulu
forty years ago. After living in that
city for a few years he eloped with an
Hawaiian princess and came to British
Columbia. About thirty years ago he
settled at Rook creek.
The wedding was a quiet and exclusive one, only a few intimate friends o
the contracting parties being present.
In fact80 exclusive was the affair that
not even the " best" families of Greenwood were invited. The happy
couple left the same day for their home
at Rock creek.

Voters should not forget that it was
the anti-Martin element that turned
the salmon fisheries on the Fraser over
to the little brown Jap. And they
should remember, too, that the newspapers which opposed Martin are defending the government, and the Japs,
too.���Cascade Record.
So long as the militia act permits
throe imbecile or crooked justices of the
peace to call out tho militia, union men
should have nothing to do with it. A
militia is all right under proper regulations. It is noble to fight in defence of
one's country, but it is despicable to
take up arms against law-abiding citizens. Gardiner Johnson says a soldier
must act as nearly as possible according
to the lifo of Christ. Yes, that was one
of Christ's injunctions, to "shoot to
kill." You may notice that sentiment
running all through the Sermon on the
Mount.���Vancouver Independent.
If the labor organizations in Yale,
Cariboo and Kootenay would put up a
candidate for the dominion parliament
they could elect him without a struggle.
Neither Liberals noi Conservatives aro
organized for the federal contest, and
the people of this province have a
hearty mistrust of the old party line
politicians. The strength of labor
unions was demonstrated at the recent
provincial elections, and many voters
outside the organizations would vote for
a labor candidate because they recognize that from the workingmen themselves must emanate the legislation
which is necessary to our country's salvation���Sandon Paystreak.
Did lie wire a protest to Ottawa against
the disgrace being put upon the province. Oh, no, that is not his style,
lie and his cabinet were too much in
sympathy with the action taken. But a
commission to investigate was formed.
If the commission reports that there
was no justification for the act will the
cabinet of Chinese sympathizers cancel
the commissions of these three justices
of the peace?    We think not.
Had the workingmen of Vancouver
given more attention to principles than
men there would at least have been two
more members of the legislature in opposition, The Martin platform was all
that any unionist coulddesire, and had
the Vancouver trades council supported
that platform instead of bringing out
straight labor candidates; neither Garden nor Tallow would have been elected.
The " chickens have come home to
roost" with the unionists of Vancouver,
and they can't blame anyone but themselves. Labor candidates are all right
when there is a chance of electing them,
but the principles of unionism when advocated by a party are just as important to unionists as labor candidates.
In referring to the action of the provincial government on the fisherman's
strike at Steveston, the Vancouver Independent says:
"Thepremier is supposee to be the
jealous guardian of the honor and good
name of the province, whose people entrust him with that high office. Let us
see how our premier acted. An unscrupulous gang recently wanted the
militia called out. A defective militia
act empowered three interested persons
to fulfill their desires. The alarm of
war was sounded and some 200 men
went out to the peaceful town of Steveston. The previous day a minister of the
cabinet wired to the attorney-general
that all was rpiiet and there was not
even a necessity to increase the force of
constables.    What did the premier do?

Tiik opposition to anti-mongolian legislation at Ottawa derives its strength
from several sources. There is in the
first place a sentimental objection in
Eastern Canada, largely fostered by the
churches, to exclusion of these people.
They call legislation to that effect
simply " damnable" and class the British Columbia members who support it
with Boers and Boxers. Secondly,
there is a section of British Columbia
employers of labor who are frequent
visitors to Ottawa whose interests are
bound up with cheap labor. They tell
the people at Ottawa that British Columbia cannot develop her resources
without cheap labor, and their declaration touches the spot in every member, and there are many, who are in
some way interested in British Columbia
mines. Then there is the opposition of
the C. P. R,, who not only require the
labor of the Mongolian importations
but who, it is stated, would lose $300,-
000 per annum derived from transporting Chinese to Vancouver, if they were
altogether excluded from the province.
Lastly, there are the utterances of
clergymen, such as Bishop Perrin and
Rev. Mr. Winchester, whose zeal for
what they consider fair play to the Chinese largely outruns their consideration
for the workingmen of their own blood.
Their words, as is only natural, weigh
largely with people in the east, whose
only knewledge of the matter is entirely
theoretical, while the arguments of our
British Columbia members, like Colonel Prior and Rev. Mr. Maxwell, are
looked upon as mere gassing to catch
the labor vote in the province. According to Mr. Turner we have already
in British Columbia arrived at the stage
when the presence of Chinese in the
province is absolutely necessary to the
very existence of the two important industries of canning and sawmilling on
the coast. (We say " on the coast" because our lumbermen in Kootenay certainly manage to saw wood without employing Chinamen except to a very limited extent. I That is to say in twenty
years, since Mr. Onderdonk first introduced Chinese into the province to
work on his contract for the construction of the western section of the C. P.
R., these people have practically cornered the labor market in the two chief
industries on tbe Pacific slope of British
Columbia. Both these important industries existed and were carried on
presumbably by white labor, and it is
reasonable to suppose profitably, before
the Chinese invasion started, but now
Mr. Turner tells us that without Chinese labor they must perish. If this is
the condition of affairs after twenty
years, what state of things dues Mr.
Turner think is likely to exist in this
province within the next fifty. One
would imagine that so far from being a
reason for a Britisli Columbia government handling this question with a pair
of tongs, this very statoment of his
should furnish an argument sufficient
to startle anv patriotic minister into a
prompt and energetic course of action.

CORRESPONDENCE.
To the Editor: One dollar will be
given to the first person answering this
question: What is the difference between a parasite and an individual that
reiuses to pay his taxes because he
thinks he can take advantage ol a technicality.
This individual has been and is at the
present time drawing a salary monthly
from the City of Greenwood for acting
as police magistrate, and even had the
audacity to demand his salary when he
was not living in the province, while
other people had to do his work, and
when I refused to sign the check for his
salary, some of his people threatened to
proceed legally.
If any of you are strangers and have
not resided in the city a sufficient length
of time, ask some of your friends to
point out to you the two lots on Copper
street that this individual owns. I
think that after you look them over
carefully you will agree with me that
he is anything but s progressive citizen,
and you will have to admit that you are
not surprised at hie being small enough
to refuse to pay taxes. If you are undecided, ask some one to point him out
to you on the street, and I don't think
it will take you long to come to a conclusion. Taos. Hardy.

THE IMPERIAL        ��
Correspondence.
Now that tbe Chinese question in
Greenwood is in a fair way of settlement
it is not out of place, I think, to remind
the public that there is no need to send
back east for goods as Greenwood merchants bave -no branch there; that
there is no need to buy off the peddlers
across the line as there aro six storekeepers here who are in business and
who pay rent, taxes, light, etc., and
who contribute their dollar to support
every ice cream social, concert, fruit
banquet, etc., that comes along, and
who do their utmost to make Greenwood a prosperous business city. These
little things give (ireenwood the downward push, as
Evil is wrought for want oi thought,
An well as want of heart.
Thanking you in anticipation, yours
truly, E. Kekkoot,
