Porter's orchestra will  give  a dance  in Barrett's hall this (Friday),evening.  H. T.   Ceperley,  of Vancouver,  has  been in the city for  several   days, this'  week.  ,  Messrs. Fletcher & ^Godhne's sawmill is in place, It is kept running-  night and day.  D. A. Cameron, manager of the  Canadian Bank of Commerce, is away  on a business trip to Spokane.  A petition was in circulation last  week urging the establishment of a  pestoffice at the mouth of Beaver creek.  The water was turned into the new  channel for. Boundary creek last week.  The channel gives "a heavier grade  than the old river bed. ,  ��� C. W. White, of Kami oops, who was  appointed postmaster at Grand Forks,  passed, through Greenwood on Sunday.  He returned on Wednesday, having  come to the conclusion that Grand '  Forks was too tough for a Kamloops  man.  The,big compressor plant at the Old  Ironsides was started on Wednesday  and worked without a hitch.' The company are now working ten drills, 3 .  pumps and 2 hoists from the same  plant. There are 900 feet of workings  on the Knob Hill mine and every foot  is in ore.  J. C. Haas, M.E., Randolph Stuart,  and W. T. Smith have returned from  the Sast, where they spent- several  weeks. They report that a great deal  of interest is being taken in Boundary  Creek. They were pleased to see the  growth in the few months they were  away, but expected a bigger boom because everyone they met from Montreal'  to Spokane was speaking.about Green-  ���' wood. :���' ���  The channel for Boundary Creek is  to be cut through the hill near the  bridge on Deadwood. The work will  be expensive, but it will avoid a curve  in the street. From all appearances  the street when completed will be the  best in the city. It is fully 100 feet  wide, with the creek running through  a 40-foot channel, and 30-foot roadways  on each side. The work will be completed in two or three weeks.  The bond recently received by J. W.  Astley, C. E., on the Snowshoe in  Greenwood camp is a bona fide one.  The syndicate which Mr. Astley represents has made the first payment of  37,000. The money was deposited in  the bank on Thursday to the credit of  Messrs. McDonnell, Wood and Denzler,  the owners. Work will be started on  the property at once. A plant will be  purchased for the mine. The second  payment, 40 per cent., or 528,000, is  due in six months.  sfflimmfiwmww^^^  InRendell'sHall,  Thursday, Friday and Saturday,  March 30, 31 and April 1.  IE,  ;e of mm,  mi WALK.

Pat Welsh, who was  ill  with   pneumonia in-Spokane, is recovering rapidly  The    stone    foundation   for   J.   W.  j    Powell's   new   hotel   is  nearing com-  '    pletion.  ���W. S. Fletcher has gone to the West  I    Fork country to  examine  his  mining  properties. '  \' A. H. Wallbridge, general agent for  ! the National cash register, was in the  i < city this week. .     ,.  John Y. Cole, the well-known Ross-  land mining man, has been in the city  for several days. '   '  .      '     ;  , Ronald Harris, M. E., returned from  the east on Wednesday. Major Iveckie  returned to Rossland with him.-  The contractors have commenced removing the earth from Government  street, opposite Rendell & Co's store.  Frank B. Gibbs, representing the  Brackmau & Kerr Milling Co., made  a business trip to Greenwood this week.  The syndicate represented by Henry  Brelich has decided not to take up the  bond on the Copperopolis and Magnolia in Copper camp. ���  R. J. Bealey, president of the Bealey  Investment and Trust Company, spent  several days in Greenwood this week.  He' has just returned from Denver,  where he spent the winter. Mr. Bealey  was surprised at the rapid growth of  Greenwood.  Constable Gardom narrowly escaped  death last week. He was searching'  for' a man among the railway construction gang. He ordered his suspect to stop- and the reply was the  whizzing of a bullet past his ear. The  man escaped in the darkness.  The Hunter-Kendrick company's big  block is completed, and the company  will open their grocery department on  Monday next. Goods are arriving as '���'������  fast as the bad state of the roads will  permit, and the company expect to  have all departments running in two  weeks.  C. E. Bartholomew will shortly start  work on the Katie L. in Providence  camp. This -property was purchased  by Kelly & Nixon of Spokane and a  company formed at Rosalia to develop  it. W. P. Gale, a Rosalia broker, is  president. The board of directors is  composed of J. H. Wixon, Frank Kelly,  W. H- Fisher. W. P. Gale and C. E.  Bartholomew.  Clarissa, the dancer, entertained a  large audience in Rendell's hall on  Thursday evening. Clarissa's dances  are original and unique. The dance  of the demon and the ballet solo dance  were particularly good. Clarissa appeared again on Friday evening, and  will give her last exhibition in Render's hall to-night (Saturday). After  the dances by Clarissa the floor will be  cleared for a general dance.  A special meeting of the city council  was.held on Wednesday evening. City  Engineer Smith reported that specifications for water tank did not outline  a receptacle strong enough to contain  200,000 gallons of water. The tenders  were not opened. New specifications  will lie prepared and new tenders  called. Several of the by-laws were  advanced a stage.  All that is required is a little excitement to show that Greenwood has  ceased lo be a thinly populated village.  Thursday afternoon Floyd Vaughan  and a bucking mule gave an exciting  exhibition. In a few minutes after  the fun began Copjier street was  packed witli amused spectators. After  a severe tussle the mule decided that it  was impossible to unseat its rider and  gave up the tight.  The 'past week was , a quiet one in  mining circles and but little business  was transacted. Outside the payment on account of the Snowshoe bond  and the final payment on the Sailor  deal no transactions of note have been  reported. The reason for tile dullness  is not hard to find. The roads are in  a frightful condition and a traveler is  almost taking his life in his hands  when he attempts the stage journey to  the nearest railway ;x>int. Buyers  are refraining from coining into the  district until they can do so with more  comfort and safety. There are several  important deals under way with every  prospect of a satisfactory termination.  The spring is a rather backward one  ane and there is yet much snow on the  hills, so that none of the prospectors  have ventured out.  !_^^"^:EH_H_SSSSs��_  T*"  ^^'iVjiiajiw tffr.r^GdS��V.- THE   BOUNDARY   CREEK   TIMES.

Whim-: his manners leave much to  be desired, one cannot help admiring  the determined way in which Mayor  Hardy seeks to attain his object. This  determination would be commendable  if it were not in nearly every instance  misapplied. His message to the council relative to awarding- the contract  for advertising- came at the wrong-  time. "A thing," called Sir John  Bourinot, clerk of the House of Commons, and recognized as the ablest  authority on parliamentary procedure  that the country has produced, has the  temerity to differ from Mayor Hardy's  decision. Hourinot states distinctly in  his work that under no consideration  must the minute of a resolution be discussed or amended except for correction.' The minute dealing-���. with the  awarding-of the contract was correct,  Mii.1 the mayor was clearly out of order  in terming- the passag-o of the ameud-  1..T-1!1.    thereto'.      If    the   mayor   con  sidered it necessary in. the city's interests to stipulate certain conditions  in connection with the contract, he  should have waited until the minutes  ���were passed and then amended the  resolution in a regular way. There is  a distinction between the resolution  itself and the minute of that .resolution. The minutes are only a record  of what did take place. They can be  corrected if incorrect, but they cannot  be mutilated by amendments dealing  with resolutions of which the minutes,  are records. It is an exceedingly  dangerous practice and liable to lead  'to legal tang-les if the faithful records  of the transactions of the city council  are to be mutilated at a subsequent  meeting-. ���   .  THE KETTL,E RIVER CHARTER.  IT IS unfortunate that the residents  of Greenwood are so busy fighting  ' each other'that they do not seem to  have the time or inclination to fight  for their own interests. This condition  of affairs arises principally from the  fact that men unaccustomed to public  life have attained public positions and  they cannot realize the fact that the  criticism of the public acts of public  men should have no influence, upon  their personal feelings. The public  man who cannot stand criticism is unfortunate indeed. He should return  to private life as speedily as possible.  The, residents of nearly every city  in the province interested in the matter have g-iven public expression to  their wishes in favor of granting- a  charter, to the Kettle River Railway  company. Greenwood alone has remained silent. There is no city in the  province more vitally interested in the  matter and none in which the people  are more unanimous in their support  of the proposition. Would it not be  well to forget our petty troubles for  the nonce and act unitedly in the interests of the city and district ?  The most effective cry raised by the  Canadian Pacific Railway, company  and its organs is to the effect that since  the people of Boundary Creek are taking no action they are quite satisfied  with the C. P. R. and do not want  another railway. Is Greenwood going  to lend color to this statement by  remaining silent ?  There is no good excuse for the  present dirty condition of the city.  The question of funds cannot be considered, because it is the duty of every  householder to keep his premises in  such a condition that his own life and  that of his neighbor is not endangered.  No effort is being made to remove the  dirt and impurities that are a serious  menace to the health of the citizens.  The back yards of hotels and private  dwellings, too, are nothing better than  manufactories of fever germs. The  'citizen.who will not make an effort to  do his duty in a matter of so much importance, should be forced to do so. If  the shilly-shally-do-nothing-policy is to  be continued for a few more weeks, an  epidemic is a certainty. The cost of  cleaning up the backyards will be  much less than the. expenses entailed  in fighting an'^epidemic.  The present unsanitary condition of  the city is the subject of much comment from the many strangers who are  coming into the district. The citizens  should in their own interests make a '  special effort to clean up unsightly  back yards.  Those who resided in Greenwood  when the city was incorporated will  remember that the new council voted  one hundred dollars for cleaning Government, Copper and Greenwood streets  A few men were put to work and for  less than the amount voted stones and  refuse were removed and a wonderful  improvement made in the appearance  of the streets. The business streets,  and particularly Copper street, are  eyesores to-day. For a small sum of  money they could be made presentable.

Parkinson, manager of the  Pathfinder  Company*   is  in   the   city.  John Rogers, of Grand Forks, Who  is largely interested in Wellington  camp and Christina lake properties,  was in the city this week.  Mr. Bielenberg has secured an option for-a three-quarter interest in a  well-known Wellington camp property.  He has also secured two promising  properties on the reservation, situated  between. Torodo and Curlew creeks.  Mr. Hoffman has purchased the Banner and Tip Top fractions in Greenwood camp, and has organized the  Banner Gold and Copper Mining company. The head office is at Greenwood. The capital is one million $1  shares. The promoters are prominent  Spokane people.  W. Markam enjoys the distinction of  being the first theatrical man to bring  a company into the Boundary Creek  country. He and his support played  "Ole Olson, Jr." to a full house in  Rendell's Hall Friday evening. " Ole  Olson, Jr." is weak in plot, but strong  in the opportunities it affords for specialties. The company appeared again  on Saturday evening in "Kitty, The  Maid of Kildare."  C. _. Hoffman has purchased from  E. A. Bielenberg, for himself and Spokane associates, the Graphic claim in  Summit camp. The Graphic was acquired by Mr. Bielenberg some weeks  ago. The Graphic is splendidly located. It is surrounded by the Oro  Denoro, the Summit, Little Giant and  Lancaster. There are two parallel  veins on the properties about six hundred feet apart. One of the veins is 20  feet and the other 8 feet in width. The,  ore body carries iron sulphides, oxidized iron and copper sulphides. The  work on the property is confined to  open cuts, stripping the veins. The_  price paid is S5,000 cash; The new  owners intend developing the property  at once.          THE   CUSTOMS   OFFICER.  Some time ago the Greenwood commercial association petitioned the customs department, urging the appointment of a customs officer at Greenwood. The department has not lost  sight of the request. During the visit  of Mr. Haas to the east he met Mr.  McMichael, the chief of the department. Mr. McMichael suggested that  the board of trade take up the matter  again, and secure a petition signed by  the business men of the city. He felt  confident the request would be granted.  It would be well to follow Mr. Mc-  Michael's suggestion,  A Big Smelter.  It is stated that work will soon be  started upon the erection of a 400-ton  smelter at Greenwood. It will' be remembered that a company was some  time ago formed for the erection of  such a plant, but up till now nothing  has been done. The capitalization is  $400,000, and Mr. J. P. Graves, prime  mover of :the Old Ironsides and Knob  Hill, is at the head of the venture. It  is said to be the intention of the company to complete the smelter as soon  as possible, in order to have it in operation the coming summer.���Toronto  World.

Many Buildings are in Course of Erection  in  the City.  The Greenwood carpenters are   busy  men these days.    Never in the   history  of1 the  city   have  there been so many  buildings under course  of  erection   as  at  present.     In   every part of the city  the hammer;and saw   are  kept going.  Stone-masons  are  kept busy too, as a  better class of building'is . now   being  erected, and stone foundations are now  considered   a  necessity.     Many   hotel  buildings are being planned  or  under  course  of  erection.     The  best among  the projected hotel buildings, so far, is  that of J. W. Powell.    It is situated on  the corner of  Deadwood   and  Government  streets,  and  occupies three lots.  The stone foundation is nearly finished  and the contract for the  building  will  be   awarded  in a few days.    The hotel  will be 75 by 90, three stories high.    It  will contain over 50 bedrooms, and will  be supplied with  baths, and  all other  modern   conveniences.     R.   F.  Coates  has begun the erection of John Keough's  hotel on Government street.    This will  also   have a stone foundation, and will  when finished make a substantial   and  comfortable hotel.  It is reported that Louis Blue, D. W.  Morgan, Wilson McKinnon, and A.  Fisher, are a syndicate which proposes  erecting a large hotel and theatre on  the Fisher addition.  Walter Waterland has returned from  Sandon, and will build an hotel on the  lots recently purchased by . him on  Copper  street.   ,  The excavation of Wallace & Miller's  three lots on Copper street is almost  completed.

The Russell Hardware Company's  two-story p building on Copper street is  about completed. Munroc & Young's  building adjacent is also well under  way. The upper story of the latter  building is to be supplied witli skylights for a photograph gallery, and  has already been leased for that purpose. Messrs. Smith & McRae are  now in their new store. The new  building and their old store will give  them ample space.  The Nadeu-Flood block is to be completed in two weeks, much to the satisfaction of anxious tenants who have  been waiting rather impatiently. The  completion of the block was delayed by  the unusually cold weather, making it  almost impossible to plaster satisfactorily. The Bank of Commerce and  the Bealey Investment company will  occupy the ground floor. The two  large basements will be occupied by  the Boundary Creek Times, and W. R.  Cm:, is, who is>opcningnp a restaurant.  The second floor has been leased for  offices.        ���  Posty & Villandre expect to have  their hotel completed in two weeks.

Oswald, who has had  charge of the Presbyterian mission in  this city and at Greenwood during the  year, will preach his farewell sermon  on Sunday evening.

During his residence in  the city Mr. Oswald made a host of  friends who regret his resignation.  A. H. ���Sperry returned this week  from Spokane. While away he perfected arrangements for the installation of the Boundary Creek company's  telephone system.
