CITY OF GREENWOOD
A Few Facts About the Boundary Metropolis.
What It Possesses and Its Relation to
the Surrounding Country���The Centre of the Big Mining Camps.
In all new mining districts the location of business centres are largely, if
not altogether, determined by natural
and economic conditions, and whatever
enterprising men and capital combined
to command the trade of the whole of it
when developed.
Mining and Trade Centre.
With respect to such considerations,
Greenwood has already the advantage
of a good start. It is established and
well on the way. But in addition to
that, it possesses, by virtue of its position, the advantages of combining in its
future the possibilities of a mining as
well as of a trade centre, or, in other
words, of becoming a Rosslond and a
Nelson in one. That is to say, it is situated locally adjacent to the principal
mining camps of the Boundary District,
of which it is now admittedly the centre, and has a commanding position in
relation to the prospective trade of the
whole country already referred to. It
has wholesale houses which do a large
business in supplying minor points in
kinds, including prairie chickens, hare,
moose (bull.)
September 1st to December 14th���
Deer (buck), deer (doe), mountain goat,
mountain sheep (ram).
November 2nd to March 31st���Beaver,
land otter, martin.
Unless specially provided, it is unlawful to shoot or destroy the following:
Insectivorous birds, English blackbird,
caribou (cow or calf) chaffinch, deer
(fawn under 12 months), elk, wapiti
(cow), elk, wapiti (calf under two years),
gull, linnet, moose (cow or calf under 12
months), mountain sheep (ewe or lamb),
English partridge, cock pheasant, quail
of all kinds, skylark, thrush, and eggs
of protected birds.
Farmers only may shoot robins in
gardens, between June 1st and September 1st.
It is unlawful to buy, sell, or expose
Those Races.
As the Miner goes to press news comes
of the failure of the second race in the
great series to come off. The cause is
the same as the first���no wind. This is
a great disappointment to Greenwood
people, who are much more intent on
these races than on the prospects of war
with the Transvaal, or anything else.
Money, suits, of clothes, hats, cigars,
Scotch whisky, and various other articles are up on the result. In the first
race the winds from the wave of ocean
proved too light and shifty, and the first
of the series between the two greatest
racing machines produced by England
and America degenerated into a drifting
match, with the Shamrock leading, and
as neither could make the run in the required time, the race was declared off
and postponed. The second was run on
Thursday, and likewise was declared off

may do to temporarily stimulate the
growth of townsites they cannot alter or
overcome natural tendencies of business
to concentrate at the most favorable
points. Geographical relation and general easy access to the various mining
camps, considered as a 'whole, must be
regarded as the controling factors, just
as Nelson has become the commercial
centre of East and West Kootenays. and
Rossland, a mining town and a mining
center, with their futures in all probability determined as such. It is claimed
for Greenwood that it occupies just such
a position in relation to the whole of the
great Boundary district, and of the new
country developing west of it as far as
Hope Mountain. It is the very centre
of the big mining camps of Boundary
district, as is clearly shown by the subjoined map, and so situated, in fact that
if a stream of water were set flowing
from any of them it would find its way
to Greenwood, and it is near enough to
the big country west of the Kettle river
the district; it has the branches of three
of the leading banks of the Dominion,
where practically all the banking of
the surrounding country is done, and it
is likely to have in the near future a
wholesale depot for mining material
and supplies, with machine shops and
foundry in conjunction. In addition
to the smelter already being erected by
the B. C. Copper Co. in Greenwood,
smelters will be erected a few miles
away at Midway, at Boundary Falls,
and at Grand Forks as soon as mining
development warrants.
The Game taws.
The open seasons for game are, respectively, as follows, both dates being inclusive :
September 1st to February 28th���
Bittern, ducks of all kinds, heron,
meadow lark, plover.
September 1st to December 31st���Cariboo, elk, wapiti (bull}, grouse of   all
for sale, show, or advertisement: Insectivorous birds, bittern, English blackbird, caribou (cow or calf), chaffinch,
deer (fawn under 12 months; or doe, elk
or wapiti of any sex or age, grouse of all
kinds, except blue grouse, which may
be sold during the open season; gull,
linnet, meadow lark, moose (cow or calf),
mountain sheep (ewe or lamb), English
partridge, cock pheasant, hen pheasant,
quail, robin, skylark, thrush, at any
time.
It is unlawful to buy, sell or expose
for sale, show, or advertisement: Caribou, hare, bull moose, mountain goat,
mountain ram, before October 1st; buck
deer, blue grouse, plover, during the
close season.
It is unlawful to kill and take in one
season, more than five caribou, ten deer,
two elk.  200   ducks,   two moose,  five
mountain goats, three mountain rams,
and to hunt deer with dogs, or kill deer
for hides alone,
for the same reason, this tinv   the Columbia leading.
Into Grand Forks.
Yesterday at noon ihe Spok.me Falls
and Northern Telegraph company, in
connection with the Western Union,
opened their office in Grand Forks
They are now ready for business and as
they already have an office in Greenwood anyone wishing to communicate
with Grand Forks can do so iu a hurrv.
Eneas McCormick, formerly of New
Westminster, has gone into partnership
with M. S. Butler. This firm now has
the finest line of harness, saddles, blankets, rugs and whips in the Boundary.
Mr. McCormick will manage the business.
Louis Blue of the Lion brewery, Rossland, was in the city this week on business in connection with his firm. THE   GREENWOOD   MINER.

The Hew Clarendon.
The Imperial Hotel, recently taken
over by D. W. Morgan & Co., under
skillful workmen is developing into a
fine, substantial building. Mr. Morgan while here personally atended to the
fitting up of the new house. The hotel
has forty rooms, which are being elegantly furnished and fitted up with all
modern appliances. It is run on the
European plan, and has a cafe and
bar attached, both of which are run in
a first class manner. A. J. Fay, assisted by Jack Hardy, is manager. A
basement will be added shortly, which
will be occupied by an up-to-date barber shop.
The B. C. Hotel.
Another hotel was opened last week
by Mr McLennan of Trail. It is called
the B. C, and is one of the best appointed in the Boundary. Everything
is new, neat and clean, and the rooms
are furnished in an up-to-date style.
Mr. McLennan has a standing reputation as an hotel man, and his table is
always the best to be had. The hotel
can accommodate about 75 guests, is
pleasantly located, and has a fine force
of assistants.
Letter From K. E. L. Brown.
R. E. L. Brown, well known as a mining engineer and promoter,   sends the
following   letter   to   John  Empey   of
Greenwood:
Victoria, Sept. 25,1899.
John Empey, Esq.
Dear Sir:���You may contribute $10 for
the purpose of helping to establish a
public library. Seemingly it is a deserving enterprise and such things, intended to benefit the district, should be encouraged.   Yours etc.,
R. E. L. Brown.
A Disasterons Fire.
The worst fire in the history of the
Boundary occured at Cascade last week,
loss, amounting to $23,000. One man
lost his life trying to help others. Alex
Arvoll was his name, and he was imprisoned on the sidewalk in front of the
burning building by falling walls, and
was roasted alive. His brave deed consisted in saving a drunk out of the
burning building. The name of Alex
Arvoll will long live in the memory of
the people of Cascade.
America's Hero.
Admiral George Dewey arrived in
New York on Sept. 29th, and his coming
was the signal for a tremendous outburst on the part of the American people, who are justly proud of their Amer-
can hero. Cannon firing, parades, and
jolly good times have been the order of
the day since the landing of the sailors;
and nothing is too good for the men
who stood behind the guns.
Will Have a Cemetry.
Last Monday night the city council
gave the Odd Fellows a plot of ground in
the city cemetery. This will be used for
hurrying the deceased Odd Fellows in
future and covers a space 310 by 105
feet and it will be immediately fenced
and otherwise greatly improved. Work
of fixing up the new city cemetry will
also commence.
In Police Court.
About a dozen gamblers were
rounded up by Chief McLaren Tuesday
morning and taken before Magistrate
Hallett. A heavy fine was imposed on
each and his honor said the next offense
would be punished by a month or two at
hard labor.

THE GREENWOOD   MINER.
PICKED   SPECIMENS.
Cornelius Vanderbilt, Jr., who has
been at work in the machine shops of
the New York Central Railroad Company, recently tested a locomotive designed by himself, in which there are
valuable improvements of his own invention and application. TheBe, which
relate to the boiler and the firebox, will
probably decrease largely the cost of
keeping such engines in service.
Dr. Mahaffey, the famous professor of
Trinity College, Dublin, is famed for his
many varied accomplishments. He is
one of the leading historians and Greek
and Latin scholars in the United Kingdom, he speaks French and German like
' Vf an interpreter, and not only plays  the
piano and violin better than most professionals, but possesses such intimate
knowledge of harmony and the theory of
music that he is one of the examiners
for the musical degree in the university.
A curious figure in French politics has
disappeared from Paris. This is Mme.
Bastien, who was chairwoman at the
German embassy. She used to enter the
building at six in the morningand empty
the contents of the waste-paper baskets,
coat-pockets, and any drawers she could
ransack into a receptable, which was
handed over to another agent of the
French espionage department. Mme.
Bastien could neither read nor write, so
the second agent sorted the papers,
This went on for many years, and the
Germans had not the slightest suspicion
of the truth. '
Several months ago a Kansas City
smelting company bought a truck-load
of crushed gold ore���which looks as much
like coarse yellow sand as anything else
���in Mexico. Adviaes were received in
due course that the stuff���twenty tons of
it���had been "loaded up" and dispatched. Weeks passed away, but the
ore did not come to hand. Finally a
station master started out a "tracer" in
quest of the car-load of ore, and it was
traced from its parent mine in Mexico
to the railway company's goods yards at
Kansas City, where it had been shunted
to a siding near the round-house, and
consigned to the keeping of the master-
mechanic. The railway officials sent a
note to him. asking about the disposition
of the car, and giving its number.
Having read the note, he turned it over
and indorsed it as follows: "The car
contained sand of a bad quality. Some
of it I used in the sand-boxes of the engines, but it was not serviceable, so I
had it scattered along the permanent
way." Shortly after this the railway
authorities found themselves constrained
to idemnify the smelting company for
the "bad sahd" at the rate of one hundred and eighty dollars per ton.
Don Eelipe Martel, the famous gambling-house proprietor of the City of
Mexico, had made a fortune in the business before the government decided to
abolish gambling-houses by levying on
them a license tax of one thousand dollars a day. One by one the gambling-
houses closed, and when the field was
clear Don Felipe Martel approached the
authorities with one thousand dollars in
cash, and demanded a days license. In
a few hours his place was thronged. At
a single stroke he had won the patron-
- age of Mexico, and his doors have never
been closed since. The daily outlay of
one thousand dollars is not missed from
the daily revenue of thousands. His
strong relk'ions tendencies are so well
known tl.at nobody was surprised when
he built recently in the village of San
Angel a church that cost more than
fifty thousand dollars.
of the vicinity, and many of the rich as
well, have come to regard him as a sort
of fairy prince. His own style of living
encourages this belief. The Martel mansion in the city of Mexico is a magnificent affair, constantly filled witn guests.
After his son's great success with
"Dame aux Camelias," Alexandre
Dumas wrote to him as though a stranger, congratulating him on the book, and
expressing a desire to make the author's
acquaintance. "lam a literary man,"
said he, in conclusion ; "and you may
have heard my name as the author of
'Monte Cristo.' " Dumas fils was equal
to the occasion. He wrote immediately
in reply, expressing the great pleasure
he would have in making his correspondent's acquaintance, principally on
account of the high terms in which he
had always heard his father speak of the
author of "Monte Cristo."
In a pretty Wisconsin town, not far
from Milwaukee, there is a "spite fence,"
which cuts off a view across a number of
beautiful lawns. The man who lives on
one side of it (the Kansas City Star explains) evidently feared that the fence
would bring down on his head the condemnation of his neighbors. Not wishing to be unjustly blamed, he has therefore painted on his side of the fence, in
letters that can be read a block away,
these words: "He built this fence. I
didn't do it." The man on the other
side also had no idea of letting a false
impression get out. Accordingly, he has
painted on the other side of the high
barrier:   "I had to do it."
When Sir John Steell, the noted English sculptor, had the Duke of Wellington sitting for a statue, he wanted to get
him to look warlike. All his efforts
were in vain, however, for Wellington
seemed, judging by his face, never to
have heard of Waterlpo or Talavera. At
last Sir John lost patience. "As I am
going to make this statue of your grace,"
he exclaimed, "can you not tell me what
you were doing before, say, the Battle of
Salamanca? Were you not galloping
about the field cheering on your men to
deeds of valor by words and action?',
"Bah!" said the duke in evident scorn,
"if you really want to model me as I was
oil the morning of Salamanca, then do
me crawling along a ditch on my
stomach, with a telescope in my  hand.

THE    TRAMWAY    TO    PHOENIX.
The most important subject of consideration by our citizens now is a tramway line to Phoenix. Now that a preliminary survey has been made, and a
report submitted to the council, it is desirable that no time should be lost in
reducing the project to a definite shape.
The mayor is in favor, if possible, of retaining the franchise for the city, and
in this view the Mines concurs. At
the present time, however, it would
hardly be feasible for the city to undertake the construction and operation
of a tramwy; and time is essential. If
it be undertaken by private enterprise,
as it undoubtedly will, conditions should
be inspired in any arrangement entered
into to preserve the right of the city to
assume ownership, or to be represented
as a shareholder.
Possibly the mistake that will be
made at first is in projecting a tramway
on too expensive and elaborate a scale.
In the opinion of the Miner what is
wanted is a light tramway for passenger and small freight traffic. It is not
praticable to think of carrying ore
except in a very limited way. The C.
P. R. is here for that purpose and will
haul the ore if a dozen tramways were
built. Probably for five years' time a
narrow gauge, light railed tramline,
costing $50,000 or $60,000 to build and
equip, will serve all puposes. Such an
outlay would earn a dividend from the
start, and could be improved as traffic
improved. Such an enterprise would
be quite within the capability of the
city to assist, and could be easily and
quickly built.
COPPER   IS   SCARCE.
A general scarcity of copper seems to
be manifest at the present writing, but
wait till the Boundary smelters get to
work, and the large deposits of copper
in this district are gotten under development. It is figured that the average
production of copper in the L'nited
States for several years does not exceed
20,000 tons per month. During the first
six months of 1899 the output reached
the total of 124,487 tons or 20,748 tons
per month. The mines of Europe within this same period have produced a
total of 43,629 tons.   The broad state
ment is made that all the copper produced in the United States is in process
of manufacture, and that not a free ton
of the commodity is obtainable. In
Europe this same state prevails, and
they have not over ten or twelve thousand tons on hand.
The price of copper has advanced
from ten to nineteen cents per pound
within the last five years. In 1894 copper was produced from the best mines
and delivered in New York at about
eight cents per pound. Nowadays the
cost of production and delivery is nearer six cents. Electrical appliances of
every sort have swelled the demand for
the metal every year. Since 1894 the
demand has increased 50 per cent.
Previous to that time there was an annual increase in production of ten per
cent. It is not surprising with the demand and supply so close together that
there are combinations seeking to control the situation.
FREE   PUBLIC   LIBRARY.
The proposition to establish a free
public reading room in the city of Greenwood in connection with the erection of
the new City Hall, has met with very
considerable favor. Among others we
may mention that R. E. Brown, better
known to the mining world as "African
Brown," has taken a warm interest in
the matter as will be seen from his letter in another column. We trust that
Mr. Brown's example will be followed
by others of the mining fraternity.
Although the matter has not been
brought to the attention of very many
yet it will be also seen that a number of
citizens have subscribed.
It may be also mentioned in this connection that a letter was received by the
editor from Mr. Scholfied, Provincial Librarian, who has offered to assist so far
as possible in furthering the enterprise
in the way of donations of books, etc.
By the time the City Hall is completed
it may be taken for granted that the
reading room will be opened for the
public.	
TWIN   CREFK.
The Miner, omitted to mention last
week the fact that Dr. Schon, Medical'
Health Officer, had condemned Twin
Creek for use for drinking purposes.
Owing to the rapid increase of population at Phoenix, the water supply is becoming contaminated. Under such circumstances, the water Bupply is becoming a matter of importance. Sooner or
later the water of Boundary creek, by
damming at some point above the city,
will have to be utilized. Though not
particularly urgent at the present time,
steps should be taken to make a preliminary enquiry into the possible aources
of supply in the future, and the best
means of conserving our interests in
that respect.
The automobile has been introduced
in British Columbia. Vancouver has
one. The days of horses for ordinary
purposes of locomotion are numbered.
In five years the automobile will be as
common on the public streets as bicycles are now!
AFTER FIFTEEN YEARS.
Charles A. Hinckley, Who Looted a Hew York
City Bank, was Arrested at Princeton B. C.
Charles A. Hinckley, alias Charles S.
Morris, was arrested on Wednesday at
Princeton, B. C, on a charge of grand
larceny. Behind this arrest there is a
story ot' considerable interest which runs
back for a period of 15 years. In May,
1889 and fur years previous Hinckley was
paying teller of the West Side bank in
New   York   city.   On   May   14,   1884,
Hinckley performed his duties as usual
and on that night he disappeared and
with him $97,000 of the funds of the
bank. It was all in the shape of cash.
Nothing was known of his whereabouts
by the bank management until very
recently.
Detectives were employed, rewards were
offered, but it seemed that the wily
fugitive had covered his tracks so well
that no trace of him could be found. It
was learned quite recently that he was
in this section and had been since the
spring and is the vice president of the
Columbia townsite company. Parties
operating under the direction of the bank
have been searching for him and finally
ocated him and he was placed under
arrest.
Known as Charles Morris.
Nothing is known by the New York
people of Hinckley except that he has
been going under the name of Charles S.
Morris. The prisoner is a man of 57
years of age and had been employed by
the bank for a period of 15 years when
he stole its funds. He was the paying
teller from the time the  bank  opened.
He purchased a quarter interest in the
Columbia townsite.and became the vice
president of the company and has inv
vested some in mines.
He has been very aggressive in the
fight against Grand Forks.
The steps necessary for extraditing
Hinckley has been taken and in a ievf
days he will be on his way to New York
to be tried.
Theodore M.Bertine, the cashier of the
West Side bank, and Frederick A. Camp,
the attorney for the same bank, are here
from New York city and have assisted in
running down the thieving teller.

THE   GREENWOOD   MINER,
Friday, Oct. 6, 1899
\k
NOTES OF THE MINES.
All the Big Properties About the Camp Showing Up Well.
Prosperity reigns in Greenwood so far
as the mines are concerned. All find
startling showings as development progresses and the C. P. R. railroad has
helped not a little in finding them.
The Old Ironside at Phoenix camp is
putting up a large bunk house to accommodate 200 men. This company has
about the best appointed hotel for their
men to be found in the country. Messrs.
Graves, Miner, Robinson & White of the
company have bought 80,000 shares of
stock owned by S. E. Rigg and D. Cook.
The ore on this property is of the finest
and work is progressing rapidly.
On the Knob Hill property, owned by
the same company as the Ironsides, an
open cut has been run across the ore for
nearly 200 feet and every pound of it
will assay at least 2 per cent copper and
from $2 to $3 in gold. The ore is a
magnetic iron with copper pyrites shot
through it. No finer surface showing
can be found on any property. This
mine has at least a million tons of ore in
sight.
Development on the Morrison is opening up an immense body of ore. The
crosscut is completed and shows the
ledge to be 73 feet wide. They are now
drifting along the vein and the face of
the drift shows all clean ore with no
waste. The' present level has a depth
of 220 feet. A four drill compressor will
shortly be installed. The Morrison' is
certainly a fine property.
It is reported that a big strike has
been made on the Winnipeg. Some
very fine ore was found on the 300-foot
level, assaying $100 in gold and copper.
The strike is made in a lead six feet wide
and is a fine pyrrhotite. The Winnipeg
still maintains its excellent reputation.
The property is situated about three
miles from Phoenix camp and a spur is
being built by the C. P. R. from the
main line. This will give the mine
excellent shipping facilities.
On the great Mother Lode work is
going on rapidly, and the last 80 feet of
the north drilt on the 200-foot level is
solid pay ore that will average about $R0
to the ton. Work on the Mother Lode
smelter is progressing and Paul Johnson
Bays they are getting along fine. If
there were no other mines in the district
it is the general opinion the Mother Lode
itself would give the smelter enough ore
to keep it going. As it is, we will need
several more smelters in a short time.
On the Sunset mine in Deadwood
came the railroad has opened up a body
of ore which is the finest in the district.
The ore in this cut is of a finer grade
than any yet found on the property. It
assays over 15 per cent copper. Some
1,500 feot of work has been done on this
property, which shows the extent and
per manency of the ore bodies. Mr..) ohns
the new superintendent, is an experienced man, and under his management it will be placed in the foremost
list of Boundary mines.
The C. P. R. graders have been blasting out ore on the Oro Denoro in Summit camp at a point 250 feet north of tlie
place where they had previously opened
up a large body of shipping ore, thus indicating that tho vein or Series of parallel veins have great depth. As ore was
found everywhere between these two
cuts Ross Thompson, vice-president of
the company put a force of men to work
to quarry out the ore where the railway
first cut it. There is no d;>ubt that on
the arrival of the first train, the property
will be in a position to ship 100 tons oi
ore daily. The main shaft is down 185
feet, and in two weeks drifting will be
started from the 200-foot  level.   This
drift will extend from 300 lo 400 feet
underneath the ore disclosed by the rail*
way cuts.
Considerable development work has
been done on the Golden Crown, both
by Mr. W. .1. Porter, the original owner
and since the formation of the company
by its managing director, Mr. G. H.
Collins, but a great deal more will have
to be done before the management can
ascertain the extent of its deposits. Mr.
Collins has devoted most of his attention
to the most westerly vein, upon which
he has sunk the main shaft. This lead,
like most of the company's other deposits, is covered by a "wash" of sand
and gravel, but the clearing of this
away reveals a vein from four to eight
feet wide on the surface. By test pitting
and crosscutting this lode was traced for
a distance of 700 feet. The main double
compartment shaft, which the company
ia sinking to open up this deposit isdown
325 feet with crosscuttings anil drifts at
several levels As this working is
vertical the dip of the vein carried it
out of the shaft at a depth of 30 feet.
At the 50-foot level a cross-cut was run
to catch the vein, and as the dip of the
ore body is only about 25 degrees from
vertical, the deposit was encountered
within a distance of eight feet. At the
150-foot level 32 feet of work had to be
done to intersect it, and if the lode has
maintained its dip a crosscut between
60 and 70 feet in length will be required
to reach it at the 300-ioot level.
INTERIOR   TOPICS.
W. F. Traves, of this City, has just
completed an invention of a new mowing machine, which by all appearances
will be a decided success. He is getting
a model made at Elliot & Morrison's
machine shop, and when completed he
will get it patented.���Nelson Miner.
Information comes from an apparently
reliable source, says the Spokane
Spokesman-Review, thatanarrow-guage
railroad is to be built from Republic to
Grand Forks, B. C. The information is
that the road will be built by Canadian
capital, which is making heavy investments in Republic mines, and that the
principal object of the company is to
build a line which will transport its ore
to the Graves smelt jr. The road will,
however, handle general passengers and
freight traffic.
A Chicago syndicate has paid $-10,000
ih cash for a well known Lardeau property, the Towser, the next location to
the famous Silver Cup mine, owned by
D. Ferguson and A. J. Knowles of Revelstoke, two old-time Lardeau prospectors.
The Parsons Produce Company shipped a full car of merchandise to Boundary. The goods were consigned to
Cascade, Grand Forks, Greenwood and
Midway.        	
It Will Cost $4,000,000.
The C. P. R. will arrive in town in the
course of a few days. Owing to a trestle and a snuill rock cut just above the
town, their progress will be somewhat
slow. This road into the Boundary is
said to be the most expensive the Canadian Pacific has ever constructed, as
the entire distance is very difficult owing to the hard rock cuts and bridges.
The line has cost the company on an
average $10,000 per mile, or a total expenditure of $-l,000,0U0 for .100 miles of
line. The Boundary promises lo be the
richest mining district in British Columbia, and though the road has cost the
C. P. K. a big pile of money, yet the
business over the road, when the mines
that are ready get shipping, will be very
large and the Canadian Pacific will be
more than rewarded.

Fellow* to lave Cemetery.
There ware present the Mayor, Aldermen Sutherland, Fisher and Cameron.
Clerk Taylor road minutes of previous
meeting; also communications from
Messrs. Swayne, Junkins and Morgan.
Mr. Swayne asked to have taxes refunded, claiming he was the only person in
town taxed for keeping a lodging house.
Aid. Sutherland moved that all keepers
of lodging houses be made to pay a tax.
This was seconded by Aid. Cameron and
carried. D. Morgan's letter was referred to the street committee for consideration. Mr. Pringle on behalf of
D. Morgan made application to the
council to excavate 9x50 feet under Copper street for a basement; also for the
use of twelve inches space the length of
building for lighting purposes, and
three feet on Greenwood street for an
entrance into the basement. This was
granted with a few specifications on motion,of Aid. Sutherland, seconded by
Aid. Cameron.
The Greenwood Odd FellowB, represented by Mr. Phalen, asked that council allow them certain ground in cemetery for burial purposes. This was
granted, loovided 4h�� Odd Fellows
would clear a certain plot of ground for
city.
The Yale Lumber Co., on motion of
Aid. Sutherland, seconded by Aid.
Cameron, were allowed $1,000 on their
account with the city for lumber. Aid.
Fisher, seconded by Aid. Sutherland,
moved that J. W. Nelson be allowed
$436 on account of Greenwood street excavating. Carried. Several minor accounts were presented and ordered paid.
By-law No. 30 was reconsidered and
passed. A by-law was introduced to
borrow money for city buildings and
street improvements. Unanimously
carried.
Council adjourned,
CHESAW.
Tbe new town of Chesaw Js situated
on Myers: Creek just south of thebound-
ary line on the north half of theColvlille
reservation, which is soon to be thrown
open for white settlement, opening up
1,500,000 acres of land, some of which, is
as fine farming land as exists in the
state of Washington. 300,000 acres of
this farming land is tributary to Chesaw.
This part of the country is described by
a prominent mining man as the central
outstepping of the great free-milling
belt that extends from Republic to
Camp McKinney. In the center of the
town is the Jim Hill property. The
Yakima is within 300 yards of the post-
office. The Review, lately bonded to
Greenwood parties, is within a half
mile of the town. The Crystal Butte,
two miles south, is operating a large concentrator. The War Eagle, Silver King,
Buckhorn and Wisconsin group and
several other properties lie within a
radius of three miles from Chesaw. This
is the junction of four country roads and
daily stages run to Greenwood, B. C,
and to Oro and Loomis, Wash. Another
stage will be put on to run to Republic.
In this district are many openings for all
kinds of business. Enterprising young
men who want to start in business in a
new town should go to Chesaw as it
offers every inducement. Particulars
can be had by addressing Holbrook,
Kean & Co., Greenwood and Chesaw.

COPPER STREET, GREENWOOD. THE   GREENWOOD   MINER,
Friday, Oct. 6, 1809
OUR   ROSSLAND   LETTER.
To the most encouraging feature of
the mineral industry here and hitherto
frequently refereed to in this corres-
pondence, viz, production must be
added, what may be considered as a
pre-rcquiflite, the item of compressed
air with its necessary machinery. The
Rand drill company's agents have been
rather active of late. Mr. Mendenhull
has received an order from the Le Roi
management for a 40-drill compressor,
and about the same time an order from
the British America Corporation for 18
additional drills with several donkey engines. I understand that the War Eagle
Company are about to close a contract
with the same firm for a 40-drill compressor to be used independently of the
electric machinery. As machinery is
one of the greatest factors of ore production in the mines here, it is of interest to know that with this new order
filled, the Le Roi will at least have 80
drills, the War Eagle 80, and the properties of the British America Corporation at least about 40. This, of course,
does not represent the total drill power
at present engaged in the Rossland
mines. This, I think, will be found to
he not less than 300 when the additional power is supplied.
It is understood that the new drills
ordered by the Le Roi will be put to
work on the Black Bear ground. This
claim adjoins the Le Roi on the west,
and as the strike of the ore' bodies is in
a W., S. W. and N. W. direction, this
extention of the Le Roi has always been
considered valuable property. It is on
this ground that the big compressor,
which supplies the drill power that
works the mine, is located. The tunnel,
which connects the Black Bear workings
with the Le Roi, begins uut a few feet
from the compressor.
On change there has been quite a flutter of activity amongst the mining brokers. From 90,000 to 100,000 shares were
sold last week. This, I understand,
beats the record ; but it must be borne
in mind that many of these shares represent transfers, exchanges, still the
business from a broker's standpoint has
really been good. In order to give a
stimulus to the trade, the unusual number of fictitious strikes have been industriously circulated by the tinhorns. It
is a great mistake that these report,-)
should be circulated by this class and
through the medium of sources the reputation of which has long been doubtful if not positively unreliable. An industry that depends upon misrepresentation for its prosperity will be short
lived; it certainly cannot be healthy.
Recently a slump of 50 cents per
share took place in War Eagle shares,
and a report was current that this slump
was due to an alleged manipulation of
Center Star stock. It was industrou.sly
spread abroad that the War Kagle management which also control.-) the Center
Star, had a scheme on Land to float
Center Star stock on a War Eagle basis.
1 am credibly informed that this report
was put into circulation by the bears in
Toronto, in order to direct investments
into other stocks, many of them of the
felis rufi variety.
The visible activities of the mining
division, especially in and around Rosb-
laiid, are certainly substantial evidence
of progress so far, at least, as the legitimate companies are concerned. That
ore production is rapidly increasing in
importance is self-evident from the increased facilities.
So far electric machinery here, though
not proving a failure, has been attended
with much friction, and tlie further
resulting from experience has not yet
been overcome.   That it will   be over
come does not admit of doubt. In the
meantime mine managers are taking
precaution to make assurance doubly
sure. The reserves power, which is not
electric, is to be used if an emergency
arise. The War Eagle management was
fully decided on this. *#*

fine properties in the West Fork. They
are the Napoleon and Last Chance, and
adjoin the Washington and Idaho properties recently bonded by "African"
Brown of Spokane. Mr. Boss has the
Washington and Idaho ledge on both
his claims, which runs high in gold,
silver and copper. So far he had found
20 feet of the ledge with only one wall,
and therefore cannot say as to its width.
Some samples taken from these claims
were exhibited in Greenwood Thursday,
and to say it is very line looking ore
would be putting it mildly. THE   GREENWOOD   MINER.

VENEZUELA -COMES OFF SECOND
BEST AT PARIS.
Arbitration Commission Awards the South
American Republic Only a Small Portion of
the Land it Claims. Practically a Parcel of
One Hundred Square Miles.
Paris, Oct. 3.���By the direction of the
Anglo-Venezuelan boundary arbitration
commission some of Great Britian's
claims as to the interior and on the coast
are disallowed, Her frontier will start
at the Wain river. The award was
unanimous. It is considered in the nature of a compromise rather than as
favoring Venezuela. It was read at
12:05 p. m. The decision, which was
read by M. i. DeMaartens, the umpire
who has precided over the deliberations
of the tribunal, is as follows:
"The undersigned, by these presents,
give and publish our decision determining and judging, touching and concerning the questions that have been submitted to us by said arbitration; and in
conformity with said arbitration, we
decide, declare and pronounce definitely
that the line of frontiers of the colony of
British Guiana and the United States
of Venezuela is as follows:
"Starting on the coast at Point Playa,
the frontier shall follow a straight line
to the confluence of the Barima and the
Maruima, thence following the thatweg
of the latter to sources of the Corentin,
otherwise called the Cutari river. Thence
it shall proceed to the confluence of the
Haiwao and the Amakaura; thence, following the thatweg of the Amakauru to
its source in the plain of Imataka;
thence in a southwesterly direction along
highest ridge of the Imaka mountains to
the highest point of the Imataka chain
opposite to the source of the Barima and
the principal chain of the Imataka mountains ; thence in a southeast direction to
the source of the Acarabist.
"Following the thatweg of theCaribiso
to the Cuyeni, the northern bank of
which it shall follow in a westerly direction to the confluence of the Cupuni and
the Vanamu to its westernmost source;
thence in a straight line to the summit
of Mount Roorarima; thence to the
source of the Cotinga.
"From this point the frontier shall
follow the thatweg of the Colinga to its
confluence with the Takulu; thence
along the thatweg of the Takulu to its
source; thence in a straight line to the
most western point of Aketrari mountains, the highest ridge of which it will
follow to the source of the Corentin,
whence it will follow the course of the
river. >
"The award of the tribunal, briefly
summarized, means that of the 00,000
square miles claimed by Venezuela the
latter obtains only 100 square miles,
formed partly of the marshland near the
river, while Great Beitain retains all
forest countries."
