THE   CITY   COUNCIL.  Several By-Laws Considered at the Regular  <**���     Meeting.  The regular meeting- of the City  Council was held on Monday evening-.  Mayor Hardy presided, and Aid, Galloway, Sutherland, Cropley, and Cameron were present. ,,  John W. Cowan applied for the position of chief of police. The communication was received and filed. Robert  Hunter applied for the position of superintendent of the waterworks. His  communication was treated in a similar way. Guess Bros, applied for grade  stakes for their new building-, and for  water sufficient to drive a waterwheel  to be used in their sampling works.  The Council, decided that if water were  available for power purposes, the application of Guess Bros, would have first  consideration. Rendell & Co. wrote  stating that it would be impossible to  get access to their Government-street  building unless earth was removed  from the side so that a side entrance  might be secured.. The Council decided to remove the earth near the flume  to admit of a 12-foot entrance to the  side door of building. W. S. Keith,  assessor and collector, asked for S25 to  purchase supplies and stamps for his  office. The sum of $50 was voted to  the treasurer to cover this and other  petty cash  purposes.  Several accounts were referred to  the "Finance Committee. Other accounts reported by the committee were  ordered paid.  ' The Board of Health by-law was reconsidered, adopted, and finally passed.  The   Greenwood   City    Waterworks  Company   by-law   was   considered   in  committee of the whole.     Mr. Whiteside,  who  appeared; for the company,  submitted  the  schedule   of  prices   already published.   The figures he stated  were the same  as those  obtaining  in  Rossland and his company were not prepared to install the system at  a lower  schedule.     This, schedule, which fixes  a maximum rate of $1 per month for  a  16-candle  power  light  for  residences,  $1.50 per month   business   houses,   and  $150 per annum for each arc light, was  adopted.    The committee reported  the  by-law   complete,   with    amendments,  and   it  was  read  a  third  time.     Mr.  Whiteside asked on behalf of the  company that the term of lease be extended  to 20 years instead  of  10.     He  stated  that owing  to a very large expense in  installing the plant his clients couldn't  proceed with the work for a  less  term  of years.    The plant when installed is  estimated to  cost $43,000.     This  is   a  greater   cost   than   the company  first  anticipated.     Aid.  Sutherland moved,  and Aid. Galloway seconded, after considerable discussion, that the company  be granted 20 years.     This  concession  was granted unanimously.  The vote oil this by-law and the one  granting the right of way to the Columbia Telephone company will be  taken on April 17th. G. B. Taylor will  act as returning officer.  On motion of Alderman Galloway,  seconded by Alderman Cameiv.n, the  city solicitor was instructed to look  after the estate"'of., W. Fleming, a railway employee, who died recently in  the city.  Alderman Sutherland moved and  Alderman Galloway seconded that a  well be dug on Copper street and a  pump placed in same for the use of the  ^fe^  OF EVERY  DESCRIPTION.

Aldermen Sutherland and  Cropley were appointed a committee to  look after this matter.  The council were not satisfied with  the specifications for water tank furnished by the city���. engineer. The  mayor and' Aldermen Cameron and  and Sutherland were appointed a committee to get the tank and foundation  completed with the least possible delay, and to award contract if deemed  necessary. Tenders for the construction of the tank were received from  Kenneth Macenzie, $1,175, and from  Meritz & McLeod. $1,650.  ��� The council decided to have250 copies  of board of health by-law printed for  distribution among householders.  GREENWOOD   AND " DISTRICT.  W. G. Gaunce has returned from a  business trip to Seattle.  Mr. Williams, of Trail, has opened a  dry goods store in the building lately  occupied by the Gem cigar store.  Geo. R. Naden; managing-director of  the Bealey Investment and Trust Company, left yesterday for Spokane.  C. hi Thomet is building a residence on the Elkhorn ground, where  he intends  living  during the summer.  An old man named James McDonald,  a native of Glengarry, died at the railway hospital last week, and was buried  in the new cemetery ground on Hall's  ranch.  C. W. Chesterton arrived from the  Rossland branch of the Bank of Montreal on Sunday1 to accept the position  of ledger-keeper in the Greenwood  branch-.  Messrs. Herbert and Guise are opening a general store at the mouth of the  West Fork. It is stated that several  Midway parties holding property there  will place a townsite on the market.  W. R. Courts has opened the Model  cafe in the basement of the'Naden-  Flood block. The cafe has been well  fitted up, and as' Mr. Courts is a well  known caterer, it is sure to have a  liberal patronage.  W. J. Suodgrrss & Sons will run a  daily stage between Greenwood and  Camp McKinney next week. Mr.  Snodgrass is away in Oregon purchasing, slock. If business justifies the  daily service will be extended to Penticton.  It is staled that the Butte in Wellington camp has again changed hands.  The Butte was owned by G. \V. Rtun-  berger, J. M. Taylor and others. They  bonded it last winter for a big figure  and now Messrs. Crane, Eoring . &  Oliver have acquired control.  Jay P. Graves, manager of the Knob  Hill and Old Ironsides Companies, and  Wm. Y. Williams, superintendent,  reached Green worn! to-day. Mr. Graves  will spend several days in the district,  and it is quite probable that he w.ill  definitely determine the site for his  snielter.  Prof. R. M. Moliius, tlie famous hypnotist, is in .'Greenwood and will give  three of his'celebrated hypmitic entertainments at ReudeM's hall, beginning  Wednesday evening.

A competing- line may be a g-ood  thing-, for the residents of the Boundary Creek district, and for this reason  we have not felt inclined to oppose it,  but the farmers of Okanag-an will find  that they will, by it, be broug-ht into  competition with the much larg-er area  of agricultural land south of the line,  where ruinous prices in farm produce  have for the past lew years prevailed.���  Vernon News.  The sentiment expressed by the  News is a highly patriotic one. Other  newspapers and residents of other  parts of the province oppose the Corbin charter because, while a competing line may be a g-ood thing- for the  residents of Boundary Creek district,  they cannot see how it will benefit  themselves or the particular locality in  which they live. The News, while it  proclaims its neutrality, sug-gests an  objection to the charter. It fears that  the farmers of Okanag-an may be  broug-ht into competition with the  much larg-er area of agricultural land  south of the line. If the News will  give the matter a little more serious  consideration, we think it will find  that competition will come without regard to the- corn-traction of any particular railway. While we haveyery  little sympathy with those who fe.:r  competition, we   think   their  safety is  found in the customs, not in the absence of special transportation facilities. .Let us suppose that the Corbin  charter is denied and that Boundary  Creek is developed despite the fact.  Wijl the farmers of Okanayan still be  safe from competition ? The Washington produce will find its way 'here so  long- as it cannot be consumed at home,  if there be a market and the customs  duties do not make the net price lower  than that which can be procured elsewhere. The Canadian Pacific Railway company.,' that now discusses  trade matters from the high plane of  protection to Canadian interest will  accept all the American produce that,  is offered, and, in order to foster the  trade will make special rates if necessary. The Canadian Pacific Railway  company is in the transportation business and is going- to take all the business that offers.  From the standpoint of the Canadian farmer, we think that the argument advanced by Frank Oliver, M. P.  for Alberta, the more sensible one.  He advocated the granting- of the  Corbin charter, the granting- of every  facility that the Boundary Creek district .niig-ht be proporly developed,  that it might have a large' and prosperous population. This population  woitld make a market for the produce  of the Northwest and Okanagan and  elsewhere. The first thing is to get  the market; the question of competition can be regulated afterwards.  THE WATER SUPPLY.  The usual and most convenient  method of securing water in Greenwood is by patronizing the water carts.  These carts pass from place to place,  and water can be secured at a reasonable rate. In the absence of waterworks the plan is all right from a convenient point of view, and probably  because it is convenient, the consumers  are not anxious to enquire regarding  the source. The matter is a very  serious one, because water has an ugly  habit of absorbing and retaining impurities of various descriptions. The  water men drive their carts into  Boundary creek just above the bridge  at Greenwood street. Situated on both  sides bt the river, immediately above  this watering place are a number of  houses. No good can be accomplished  by dwelling upon the details of the  impurities which find their way into  the waters of Boundary creek before  they find temporary resting place in  the waterman's cart. Then the cutting of the channel for Boundary  creek has disturbed decayed and decaying- vegetable matter, all of which  finds its way into the stream and is  carried into and past- the spot where  the waterman fills his cart. The  remedy is a simple one. The board of  health must assert itself. The watermen must be forced to go above the  yalle3' to secure water. The distance  is a little farther,' but the health of the  people should be the first consideration.  MODEL    CAFE,  W. R. Courts, Prop.

The policy of  the government on   both  of these matters was  clearly outlined by the  premier  in his  splendid   speech on  the address.    Sir  Wilfrid's remarks thereon  may be ap-  .,  propriately    quoted    here:    He,    Sir  Charles   Tupper,  condemns  it   in advance because to him, I regret to say,  and to his'party   the  word  redistribution means gerrymander.    There is a'  sinister importance in  the very word.  He said we wanted to play with loaded  dice.    No;  our effort is  to  unload the  dice.    Who loaded the dice, I, want to  know ?   Who loaded the dice with the  infamous franchise  act?    Who loaded  the dice with the  still  more infamous  redistribution  bill ?    Who carved  the  Province of Ontario  into  monuments  of .shapeless deformity;   shapeless, deformity   to   the   eye,   and    of   even  greater deformity to  every  instinct of  right and justice ? Sir, the honorable  g-entleman asked  me yesterday where  was our constitutional  power to pass  the   act   we   propose.    I   answer,  the  constitutional  power of the house of  commons to undo every  wrong, and to  give justice to those who have suffered  wrong-. , We do not propose, assuredly,  to increase the number of members of  the house, but it is our aim and purpose   to   undo   the   g-reat wrong, the  supreme   injustice,   which   was   done  against the liberties  of the people in'  1882;    Let me   say   to   the honorable  gentleman that I should be ashamed of  myself if we were to follow in the path  troddenvby himself   and  his  friends.  We   do   not   want   any   loaded   dice.  What we want is to have ' fair play for  them as well as for  us.    We are  here  in the consciousness  of our strength,.;  and so help me God, I. think we  shall  .have that strength in the hearts of the  people, but never by  such  methods as  were   resorted   to   by    the   honorable  gentleman. <s  GREAT   NORTHERN   SURVEYS.  Spokesman-Review : In  the last few  days  there passed  through  the local  Great    Northern    railway  offices,   receipts and vouchers  for  the  expenses .  contracted   by  the surveying parties.  under Alexander M..I<upfer,   in  conducting-their surveys now  in progress  in the vicinity of the  San  Poil valley.  It  is   Mr.   L/iipfer   who   has' general  charge of the parties that went in from  Republic and from Wilbur.   The Great,  Northern has persistently  denied that .  it ,has  any connection with  the surveyors.    The  presence of the vouchers in the Great  Northern offices  and  the further fact that they were paid by  the Great Northern  indicate that the  men  have some  connection  with the  company.  The receipts and vouchers show that  the several 'parties have been over a  wide range of country between the  San Poil country and the mouth of the  Spokane river. They have covered all  possible routes by which a railroad  could be built to Republic, and make  connections into Spokane by way of  the Spokane Falls and Northern, or  directly froni the west.  There are many things that are being considered by the Great Northern  in its desire to build to Republic. Their  consideration has caused Resident En-  gineer Edwards to ��� go to St. Paul to  join Assistant General Superintendent  Shields there in consultation with  President Hill.  Mr. Hill is strongly in favor of making the line as short as possible. The  shortest route would be from the S. F.  & N. at some point in Stevens county,  probably in the vicinity of Marble  siding, westward to Republic. This  would tap the Pierre's lake and Flat  creek mining districts en route. The  difficulty is the engineers have not yet  been able to locate a route this way  that is free from steep grades and expensive building. They may do so  yet, however.  On the other hand, it appears that if  the Great Northern does not use the  San Poil route some one else will, and  will thus cut. into the business that  would otherwise belong- exclusively to  the Great Northern. Further, Mr. Hill  is favorable always to water grades  and on the San Poil he has them.  Up to date it is a toss up which route  will be selected. No one, not even 'the  engineers, know. Soon the matter will  be decided, and then it is confidently  expected dirt will commence to fly.  The movements of the. surveyors in  the last few days would indicate that  should the San Poil route be used the  line will probably follow the valley of  the Columbia eastward from the mouth  of the San Poil to the mouth of the  Spokane, thus tapping several mining  districts and giving easy grades. From  the mouth of the river it is 24 miles by  VICTORIA, B. C.  LONDON, ENG.  VANCOUVER, B. C.  TURNER, BE ETON  <&   GO.  WHOLESALE    MERCHANTS,   SHIPPERS   AND  IMPORTERS.

The yearly jreneral meeting- of this  bank.w.'is held on Tuesday, March 7, at  the ofliccs of the corporation, 3, Clem-  ejit's-lane,-L/Oinbai'd-slreet, London, E.  C, Mr. Richard H. Glyn presiding-.  The secretary (Mr. A. G. Wallis) having- read the notice convening- the meeting-, tlie chairman said :--" Gentlemen,  before I formally, move the adoption of  the report.and accounts,. I  propose,   as  usual,   to make ri fe'.v remarks.    I read  in one of  our  le::d!!ig-  daily   financial  papers theotliardiiy this rt-mark : 'One  naturally   looks' to! the   report  of   the  Bank   of   British  North   America  for  evidence  corroborating-  other sig-ns of  prosperity in Canada.'    I think that is  more  or  less of a compliment, and not  an'undeserved  one,   because  certainly  we are so  closely  connected   with   tlie  trade of Canada that our balance-sheets  do reflect larg-ely the prosperity or otherwise  of  the  trade   of  that country ;  and on this occasion it certainly reflects  the expansion which we all   know  has  taken  place  during-  the year that has  just g'bne by.    If you will compare our  balance-sheet up to the 31st December,  1898, with that of 1897 you wit! find the  fig-tires  are -very  much   larg-er.      The  totals for  1S9S  are ,��S,639,'(!00  against  ��5,130,000, or over half a iiimioi!   larger.    And there is tut increa.so in almost-  all the.items.    The deposit.and current-  accounts have risen fr'om-j��2,310,000 to  /,'2,583,000:    the  notes  in   circulation  from  .��253,000  to ��303,000;    the bills  payable    and    other   liabilities    from  1,242,000  pounds  to  1,406,000   pounds.  On the other side we have a very larg-e  auioun't of cash at bankers and  at  call  and short notice ;  in fact, it is 1,651,000  pounds ag-ainst 917,000 pounds.    That,  ���   of "course,   depends   very   much   upon  :���-��� when you strike your balance-sheet;: it  may be more or less on any  particular  date.' _ Tlie bills,receivable.are slightly���  lower.    The profit for tlie year  ending  31st December compared with the similar  period   last  year  is  3S.000 pounds  ag-ainst31,000 pounds.    -The- business,  as  I  have-already said, has expanded,  and the trade, in, Canada   seems  from  all   accounts  likely ���'to  continue  very  g-ood for some little while  to  come   at  any rate.    There is not much for me to  tell you  about  the  Eastern   branches,  i   The  competition  there is, as it always  has been, very keen, but we  can   thoroughly   well   hold our  own;    and   we  have added to these branches by  open--  ing one at a place called Midland, which  is at the south-eastend of Georgia Bay,  and is apparently a very rising  place.  It  has;a'.magnificent harbour���so good  that ships drawing 20 feet of water can  come tip to, the wharves, and it is  said  that  if necessary  that depth could be  increased.     It  is  not a great way off  Toronto,   and -the   banking   business  there has been done mostly   with  Toronto.   We hope that by giving facilities  to customers on the spot  we shall be  able   to start a very successful branch.  - The chief trade of the place is lumber:  it  is   the centre of the lumber district;  but there are also two elevators  and  a  grist-mill,   and   it  is  contemplated by  the  people  there   to   start   a   line   of  steamers to Duluth.     As regards the  branches in the west���by which I mean  the  far  west���Mr.   Hoare,   from   this  chair, last   September,   gave   you   an  interesting account of our  opening  at  Dawson   City,   and .explained   to   you  that we did that with a certain amount  of  hesitation.     I  am glad to say that  the returns, as far  as  we   have  them,  are quite as satisfactory as we expected,  and it is'more than  probable  that  we  shall   not   have   to   appropriate   that  amount which he pointed out to you we  had thought it necessary to  set  aside,  in view of the very uncertain expenses  of opening a branch there.    We have a  wooden building in Dawson   City,   and  I   have   been told by one who has seen  it that it  is   probably  the   best  of  its  sort  for  the  purpose;    but   we came  very nearly being burnt out the  other  day.    There was a huge conflagration,  and  the   fire,   I  believe,   came   within  about   four, houses   of   our   building.  Thanks, however, to the energy of that  very weil-knowu Canadian police force  it   was .stopped,   and  we   were   saved  what would have been  a  great  inconvenience.     I   need hardly say that the,  bank is very much indebted to the force  for the"energy they showed in   putting  a   stop   to   the   fire.     The  manager at  Dawson   City   reports' hopefully.      Of    j  course,   everybody admits that there is  a great deal of gold in that  piace,   and    !  the real question is how loiig it is going    !  to last���how long it will take to  get   it    j  out.     The present means are no doubt  of a primitive character,  but  I  should    I  think   it is likely that before very long    j  the energy of the Canadians  will   give  us   much  easier  means  of access into  that part of the  world,  by   which   machinery   of  the most approved description may be taken in   at  a   reasonable  price;   and then we shall be better able  to judge as to the wealth of the country  or otherwise.    But all accounts seem to  agree that there is  a  vast  amount  of  gold   there.      You   heard   at  the   last  meeting  that  we  had  made   arrangements to close the. branch   at  Sandon.  Since  then   we have closed the branch  at Slocan City, which turned out a fail-'  tire.    Most of the inhabitants left, and  it was necessary for us to  go  as  well.  We  have since opened branches at two  places���Greenwood find Ashcroft.     As  you   have  been told before, iu opening  these  branches  we   incur   very   little  expense :   it is a tentative sort of  btisi-'  ness.      Tit   opening* at  a mining camp  you have to take your chance of what  happens, and the great point is not to  spend much money in going there. I  will go back just for one moment and  show you how we have divided the  profits: Including 7,4S9i,. 17s. Si).,  brought forward from the last account,  we have to deal with 45,8041.-. 4s. 6n.  We have provided for the officers' wid:  (���ws and orphans fund.430i,. 17.S. 7d.,  and for the officers' life-insurance fund  336i.. 13s. 3n., which provision you  have always approved, and always  will, I hope. Then Ave have declared a  dividend of 25s. a share, free of income  tax, which makes a distribution of 5  per cent for the year, and we have  added 13,000i,. to the reserve fund���  which I think you will also, approve���  bringing that fund ��� tip to,. 300,'oOOl.  That leaves us with 5,036r,. i3s. 8n.  to carry forward. I should just like to  say"one word in praise of the staff. It  must be very' clear to all of you that  all this additional work must have involved a great extra strain upon our  worthy general manager, Mr. Stike-  maii, and upon all those under him ;  but I do not think there is any bank  either in Canada or anywhere else that  has n more zealous and able staff'than  that of 'the Bank of British North  America-. I haveru'othing more to say,  so I will-propose 'That the report and  statement of accounts be adopted.' "  - Mr. J. J. King-sford seconded the  motion.     . , ; " ���'  Dr. Laurie :���"I should like to ask if  you intend to go on increasing our reserve fund: I think 300,000 pounds for  a bank such as ours, with a paid-up  capital of 1,000,000 pounds, and no liability, ought to be satisfied with a reserve fund of 300,000 pounds." .   .  The Chairman:--"The directors hoped  to be able to make further additions to  the reserve fund. It is really hardly  enough, but that is a "matter which will  keep."  Dr. Laurie :���" I hope we shall see a  better dividend." ...        '"; ,  The motion was carried unanimously.  The   retiring   directors���-Messrs.   F.  Lubbock, G. Farrer, and E. A. Hoare���  were unanimously re-elected.  Dr. Laurie proposed the re-election  of Mr.' Edwin Waterhouse and Mr.  George Sneath as auditors, which was  seconded by Mr. Hewat, arid carried  unanimously. ...;.   .  Mr, C.'W. Bowley :���"I beg-- to propose a vote of thanks to the directors,  and particularly to: the chairman, for  the able manner in which he hasgiven,  us an account of the operations of the:  .bank during the" last six ^months. I  am sure we are all glad to see that the  position of the bank is improving a  little, and that pur dividend of 25s. is  continued, and I.certainly hope it will  be increased. Jean recollect the time  when we had a little more, but we  must not, complain,, as times are. I  should "like to include the staff in this  vote of thanks, because J.am sure that  without their exertions the directors  could not have carried on the business. _  in the way they have done."  The/motion was seconded by Dr.  Laurie, and carried unanimously.  The Chairman :���" The directors are  very much obliged for, this mark of  your confidence, and I am sure the staff  will be very gra.tified when it is conveyed to them that you have unanimously approved of their services during the past year.". (Applause.)  ���   The proceedings then terminated.  It was a quiet week in stocks. A  few sales were reported in Camp McKinney stocks. One peculiarity about  Boundary Creek mining companies is  the difficulty in securing their shares.  Winnipeg's ��� are : practically off the  market. Occasionally it is possible to  secure a small block, but the great  bulk is held... by a fortunate few who  show no anxiety ;to part with it. The  Knob Hill and Old Ironsides stocks  are not in the local market. Golden  Crown is a little more plentiful. It is:-  eagerly sought after and has gone up  over the 30 mark. While the market  is dull, there is-7great activity .at the  mines themselves. Men and machinery are kept going day and night  at the big properties', as the owners  are anxious to have large bodies of i  ore blocked ready for shipment when |  the railway comes.  STOCKS.

A blacksmith named Bresser, who  works in McLellan's camp near Niagara, was robbed of over $200 last  week. Brault, "the proprietor of the  Tunnel hotel, is under arrest charged  with the crime, and Theo Foust is  wanted by the police as an accomplice.  The Grand Forks Miner gives the following particulars of the robbery :  " Bresser, it appears, slept in a'terit  at the camp'.and on the night in question he dreamed of some one holding a  revolver to his head, and awakening  suddenly, found his dream a .reality. t  He was forced to hold up his hands by  one of the robbers, while two others  went through his clothes, taking <  therefrom $140 in money arjd several  cheques. The cheques, however, they  decided were not available, so they left  them behind when they fled. While  the robbery was being committed the  moon came out, giving enough light  to allow Bresser a fairly good view of  his assailants, and the next morning  he came to Grand Forks and swore out  warrants for their; arrest."  Broult was arrested but Foust had  fled. He is supposed to have crossed  the line. Foust lived in Greenwood a  short time.- .JHe :'was ? in . trouble with  American officers some time ago.
