THE CORBIN CHARTER  ENDORSED   oBY     commercial  Association���Strong Resolutions Will Be Sent  to Members of Parliament���A New President���A. Customs Officer���Joint Meeting  Suggested.  The Greenwood Mining- and Commercial association unanimously adopted a strongly worded resolution at a  large and representative meeting- held  in Barrett's hall on Friday .evening.  After the reading, and adoption of the  minutes, Alderman Galloway was  elected president of the association to  .fill the vacancy caused by the removal  of Mr. Anderson.  The secretary of the Rossland Board  of Trade asked for'the co-operation of  ;the association in securing a. joint  meeting of different boards of trade at  some central point.to consider,matters  of importance, to Kootenay and Boundary Creek. The secretary was instructed to write, promising co-opeia-  tion in the movement, and suggesting  Rossland as the place of meeting.  The consideration of the Corbin  charter was then taken up. Mr. W. T.  Smith said that it was of the highest  importance that this railway should be  built. It is not a question of fighting  the C. P. R. It was the importance of  securing competition. If Corbin "had  a monopoly in Boundary Creek he  would be just as anxious to encourage  "the"C. P. R. It was of the highest importance that the lowest transportation rates should be secured..  Mr. F. J. Finucane, manager of the  Bank of Montreal, urged that everything be done to secure the charter. It  was a matter in which Greenwood was  peculiarly interested, and every effort  should be made-by  the citizens.  Mr. Pringle urged that a strong  resolution be passed, even stronger  than those of other boards of trade.  Greenwood was more directly interest-  ��� ed and,could speak more ^feelingly' in  the matter.'  The meeting then went into committee to 'prepare, a resolution. The  committee reported the following resolution, which was adopted unanimously  on motion of Mr. McRae, seconded by  Mr. Finucane :  Whereas, railway competition is ab-,  solutely essential to the speedy development of the Boundary Creek  country ;-.and  "Whereas, public sentiment in the  district is unanimously in favor of  railway competition; and  Whereas, an application is being  made to the Dominion parliament for  a charter for the construction of a railway traversing a portion of the Boundary Creek country, which will be called  the Kettle River Valley railway ; and  Whereas, the granting of such  charter and the construction of said  railway would be of the utmost benefit  to the development of Southern British  Columbia, and is absolutely necessary  to gain the confidence, of capital, to  secure its rapid influx; and would insure the establishment of the smelting  and mining industries under the most  favorable conditions : and  Whereas, the promoters of said railway are not asking any money subsidy, land grant or other bonus;  'SI  jt iflJL 11 aii  An act for safety, etc., of workmen  The above with  Amendments for 1899  Now  on   Sale  at  SMITH   &   McRAE'S,  Books, Stationeiy, Wallpaper, Notions  and Fancy Goods,  GREENWOOD,     B.O.  Therefore be it resolved, that in the  opinion of the" Mining and Commercial  Association of the City of Greenwood,  it is not only desirable, but absolutely  essential to the development of the  country that this railway should be  constructed, subject to government  control of rates, and that the people  are justly entitled to obtain the railway competition asked for, and that in  order to render the accomplishment of  this possible, the charter applied for  should be granted, thereby rendering  an act of justice to the people of Southern British Columbia.  . Be it further resolved, that copies  of this resolution be sent to all members of the Parliament of Canada.  The secretary was instructed to have  500 copies printed for distribution.,  The question of sending a delegate  to Ottawa to push the charter was then  discussed. Mr. Smith and others  stated that the sending of a delegate  last year was a splendid advertisement  for Greenwood. They could better"  affore to send one this year. It was  decided to call a public meeting at an  early date to finally decide the matter.  On motion of Mr. Ross, seconded by  Mr. McDonnell, a resolution passed,  urging the appointment of a customs  officer at Greenwood. Messrs. Keith,  Ross and McRae were appointed a  committee to secure the signatures of  business men to a petition praying for  the appointment.  THE   CITY   COUNCIL.  Deals With Various Matters at Its  Regular  Meeting.  AH the members of the city council,  with the exception of Alderman Naden,  were present at the regular meeting  Monday evening. Rendell '&" Co.,  through A. S. Black, notified the council that their Government street building was sagging on account of removal  of supports by city contractors, and  unless remedied action for damages'  would be taken. The city engineer  was instructed to attend this matter.  Boss and Nelson requested payment  of S127, the wages of man kept on  dump on.' Copper street. The council  granted $75 and in the future offered  to pay half the wages for one man  kept to level the streets.  Mowat &^ Palmer and Paton & Co.  were granted permission to make  copies of assessment roll.  Dr. Schon wrote on health matters,  and Geo. A. Guess pointed out the  danger of using Boundary creek water ,  taken fr8m below points of contamination. The letters were received and  filed.     ".,''���'..'���'  The mayor's action in dismissing  W. Smith, city engineer, was upheld  and the clerk was instructed to tender  him $80 in full for claims of salary and  damages.  The city engineer was instructed to  survey a part of the Hall ranch for  cemetery purposes.  The council decided, in return for a  rate of S2 a day for city patients, to  grant the Greenwood hospital exemption from taxation, a bonus of $500,  open up Skylark street, and the privilege of tapping the water mains.  Three loan by-laws were read a first  and second time. No sum was mentioned in the by-laws, but one is for  street limprovements, the second for  waterworks and the third for municipal  buildings and cemetery.  The treasurer was instructed to pay  the collector S25 for stationery, etc.  On motion of Alderman Cameron,  seconded by Alderman Cropley, it was  decided to recommend the appointment  of C. J. McArthur and Alderman  Sutherland as police commissioners. ,  Strike on the Saloon Fraction.  A rich strike was made the past  week on the Saloon fraction in Summit camp. A quartz ledge 12 feet in  width, was uncovered, carrying high  gold values. The ledge has been  stripped for about 25 feet. The Saloon  lies between the Mountain View, Blue  Bell and Brayfogle, and is owned by  Jas. Cunningham and W. Shaw. The  ledge is a portis quartz, showing copper stain, and, like the ore bodies on  adjoining claims, will doubtless with  depth increase iu copper values. The  claim is 500 by 1,000 feet and was located last year.  The shaft on the Oro Denoro in  Summit camp is down 100 feet.  Fritz. Haussener has returned from  Switzerland accompanied by his sister..  Fritz intends starting a large dairy on.  his Boundary creek ranch. THE   BOUNDARY   CREEK   TIMES.  J  _'     H.

GuuiC.wvooi) still continues to be one  of   the  dirtiest  towns   in   British   Columbia. ' A special providence must be  thwarting the  machinations of disease  because   in   the   back yards  of  hotels  and   other   places  fever-breeding-  factories are working- continuously.    The  streets are almost  as   bad   as the back  yards'and  nothing,   is done.    A brand  new set of health regulations has been  added to  the  list  of  city  ordinances,  but  there   is no   improvement   in   the  sanitary conditions of  the  city.    It is  the veriest  folly  to. act  as  if   Greenwood was  to  enjoy   special   immunity  from the evil consequences of slothful-  ncss and a studied   neglect of ordinary  sanitary   regulations.     It  is    idle    to  suppose that people can keep on using-  water   from Boundary creek while it is  being- contaminated   by   varied  pollutions���all   of   the   worst   description.  There are lit teen  or  sixteen   hotels in  the city.    At least a. dozen  of the proprietors should be  asked   to   appear in  the police court  or  at  once get  their  premises in   a  proper  sanitary   condition.    There   are   probably  2,000 residents in   the   town.    Ninety  per cent,  of the householders should  be treated  similarly   to   the  hotel   keepers.    The  city authorities  should   also   be forced  to clean up the streets and keep them  clean! '���''.'  Action should be taken at once.. All  that is needed to ruin the prosperity of  Greenwood is a fever epidemic. All  that is needed . to secure a fever epidemic is. a do-nothing- policy. The  head of a prominent institution, which  spends thousands of dollars in the city  said last week that just as soon as the  fever struck Greenwood he would move  the offices to Columbia. He did not  propose to risk the lives of himself and  , his men simply because no one made  ' any erfort to keep the cjty clean.  One week's g-ood work is all that is  required to bring- the city back to a  state of ordinary cleanliness. The  g-eneralgood requires the most drastic  measures.. There is plenty of municipal and provincial machinery. Shall  it be set in motion ?  IN FAVOR OF THE ROAD.  The feeling- in Greenwood in favor  of the Corbin road is as. strong- as it  ever was. The meeting of the Mining-  and Commercial association held Friday evening was the best attended  meeting1 of the year, and the resolution  in favor of the road was passed without' a dissenting- voice. The resolution is couched in temperate lang-uage  and cannot be objected to, even by the  friends of the C. P. R. The company  cannot surely deny the people the  rig-ht to. urge the granting- of such  railway charters as will afford them  competition. The people demand the  Corbin charter,,, not because of any  special antipathy to the C. P. R., but  because it is exceedingly dang-erous to  the prosperity of any country that it  should be placed at the mercy of one  railway company. As Mr.' W. T.  Smith stated, if Mr. Corbin's'line was  the only one in the district, we would  be just as anxious to secure the C. P. R.  The people all along- the line are  recognizing that a gross injustice would  be' inflicted on the people of Boundary  Creek by denying- them railway competition. Even Vancouver is taking-  up the fig-ht in the interests of this district. At a larg-ely-attended meeting-  of 'the Vancouver' board of .trade a  a resolution was introduced favoring  the Corbin charter. The meeting was  overwhelmingly in favor of the resolution, but the discussion was postponed ���  for .one week. Mr. Geo. McL,. Brown,  the executive agent of the C. P. R.,  waved the old flag- at. the meeting, but  it is scarcely likely that the common  sense business men of Vancouver will  be fooled all the time by sentimental  twaddle.

Graves, who,  outside of managing several properties in the Rossland camp,,is at the  head of five companies operating in  the Boundary Greek district. Mr.  Graves has just returned from one of  his flying visits'to "this last mentioned  district, looking over .the mines in'  .which he is interested and incidentally  trying to make up his mind where to  locate the smelter plant of the Granby  Consolidated Mining and Smelting  company, of which he is the head, and  was the successful promoter in Mont-  Teal,  Canada.      '   -     ���    ,  Mr. .Graves, after taking a day's  rest in. the city, left for Rossland, and  may perhaps visit Trail. This time  he is accompanied by A. B. W. Hodges,  who will be the smelter superintendent and metallurgist for the new company. These gentlemen will return to  the city in a few days, and then an-  qtherjflyihg; trip-to the. Boundarycoun-..  "try will be in' order, this time perhaps  to settle for bnce and all where the  smelter will be located.     :."j        ';   ���  Mr. Graves frankly-admitted that he  did not' know himself- where'.��� the site  was going to be. He said : " It is not  forme to' decide the"proper, place to  build: That is the reason why Mr.';  Hodges is going up to the Boundary  ��� country."'';.";; ,-. ���.���;      ���'.-.. ': : :  "What, in your, opinion, .would be a  desirable .location for such a plant?"  was afked.    .. ;'  " There are several places that would  suit us. We might build for instance  at Midway, or somewhere on Boundary creek near Greenwood. Again,  the North Fork of the Kettle river pre- ���  sents advantages.- This can also be  said of the main Kettle river near  Grand'   Forks,   Columbia   or   Carson.  ��� What we desire is a site the nearest to  our mines; where the ore can have a  dowri hill haul; with the least distance  and consequent saving "in freight;  plenty of water, fuel and lime. There  are two or-three such .places, but no  decision has been reached. If I could  could tell you, honestly, J would do-so,  '. but I can: not."     ;  Asked if any.-of the towns in that  section had offered his company a  a bonus ;to build the plant in their  vicinity, he replied : " We have had no  positive bonus offered :us,.nor are we  looking, for one, but several, of the  towns would like to have the smelter  near to them and  have offered to'help  , lis.in every way possible:"  The smelter will have a capacity to  treat, at the- lowest, 400 tons of ore  daily, and if necessary 500 tons. It  will be so constructed that it will be  increased when needed to double its  capacity with little extra expense.  When asked if it would be a customs  smelter, he: replied :  :,!No, I hardly think sb; We are  building it for our, own use. However,  until a customs smelter is built in that  country, it may be that we will treat  the product of other mines if requested  and if favorable rates can be arranged  suitable to all parties. The intention  is that it will be used mainly for our  own ores, as I firmly believe by the  time the plant is completed the different/mines .my companies own will  be   in  a position  to ship  all the ores  . necessary to run it continuously."  Then the reporter switched to the  treatment' of Rossland ores. Mr.  Graves is operating the Mascot, Southern Belle, Snowshoe and California  properties in that camp that are being  extensively developed, so that  in the  ���near future they will be turning out a  considerable tonnage. The question  evidently seemed to surprise ' him, but  he promptly replied.: " It is certainly  within the bounds of possibility.    But  "this question involves the matter of  freight rates to a considerable degree.  If we found we could get from the railway company such a rate that would  be low enough to allow us to make a  profit by smelting the ores ourselves,  instead of paying money to another  smelter, we might do so, though this  question has not baen fully discussed."
