Vol. II,  GREENWOOD CITY, B,C��� SATURDAY, APRIL 24, 1897.  33  TOPICS   TOR   THE   WEEK.  No, 7,  ^fTjOHF question of  the incorporation of  Greenwood as a  JL      city is being* much discussed, and  on   general  principles the majority of the  property owners  are, we  think, favorable to the proposal.    Those, however, who are  dubious   reg*arding*  the  advisability  of  immediate  action  being taken that would irrevocably commit  the  town to a  system of local government, arg*ue that in view of the comparatively small population now resident in Greenwood, the  burden of taxation must, if the necessary reforms and contemplated improvements are carried  into  effect,   fall very  heavily on their shoulders.    This. arg*ument is not unwisely  advanced, althoug-h in many cases  where  it  has  been put  forward the conclusion hardly followed from the  premises.  The only sensible way to arrive at a  conclusion worth considering is to calculate the probable sources of revenue and  expenditure in the event of .incorporation.    As  append the following rough estimate,:  It is to be hoped that provision will be made in the supplementary estimates for the continuation of the salary  paid for the last two years to Dr. Jakes, as resident physician of the Kettle River district. The grants made last  year, to resident physicians in several sections of the province were not included in this year's estimates ; but the  attention of the government has been drawn to the fact  that, circumstances   *-��� *-*"*-   -"-1-   -L1- -���  allowance in the case  of Dr.  a  g-uide we  EXPENDITURE.

It is safe to say that few  . medical men in the country have earned so, thoroughly the  by no means liberal sum granted by the g-overnment as has,  Dr. Jakes.    Further, he has recently  been  appointed  local  medical health officer, without salary.     As the government  . has never been asked to contribute towards the  building* of  the well-equipped   hospital   in  Greenwood���an  institution  that compares favorably with any of  the  private  nursing  establishments in the Coast cities���there is no  excuse why  the small assistance required to retain the services of a competent physician in the district should not be given.  jSJe.  -***���  ails.

A simple yet appropriate means of commemorating the felicitous event would be to build a monument  of Boundary Creek ores and having perhaps a slab of white  quartz which, polished and engraved, would signify the  occasion of the erection of the monument. A public meeting should be called,to consider the matter.  CONCERT.  On Wednesday night the schoolroom was crowded by a  thoroughly appreciative audience on the occasion of the  concert given by the ladies of Greenwood.

The British investor is already  sufficiently  chary of British Columbia idvestments, and if  this sort of  thing goes on it is not to be wondered at.    A correspondent  here writes to (say) a firm of brokers in   Iyondon  offering a  block of stock at the local market  price, which is 10c.

Mr. Furness possesses  a well trained high  baritone voice of good quality and  power.    Mr.   Kelly also  sang well.

The Smuggler, Fairview.  The report issued by the directors of  the Smuggler Co. says : During March  one of the greatest strikes  in   the   history of gold mining on   this   continent  was made.    On March 22nd a telegram  was received from  Mr.   Dixon  as  follows : '' Ore shows free gold and tellur-  ide.    Have struck a bonanza. Vein has  every appearance of being permanent.  The ore body is increasing in   width."  This telegram was confirmed by letters  and a sample of 20 pounds  of  the ore  was assayed in  Toronto  by  Dewar &  Son, whose report states that the sample contained arsenical  pyrites   and a  small quantity of telluride of gold and  silver.    The assay returns gave 84 ozs.  gold to the ton,   value  $1,680,   and  11  ozs. silver, value $7.15,   total  $1,687.15.  Such a rich return at the 125 foot level  is said to have never been  equalled by  any mine in America.  CAMP   McXlNNEY   MOTES.  The Cariboo M. & M. Co. have raised  up the shaft,from the No. 2 level perpendicular and are sinking down to the  No. 3 level, below which the shaft will  then be continued. The old shaft was  an incline. All the ore has been stoped  from the No. 1 and No. levels and the  men are now working at the No. 3.  The new compressor has arrived and  will shortly be placed in position.  The shoes and dies have not yet been  received and consequently the mill is  being worked very slow.  Three 8-hour shifts have been put to  work on the Minnehaha. The double-  compartment shaft is how down 40 feet  and shows a six-foot lead of fine ore at  the bottom.  Assessment work was completed last  week on the Mountain Sheep, adjoining the Minnehaha on the south. A  lead nearly 20 feet wide has been exposed by surface crosscuts, the ore,  which is free milling, running from $7  to $12. The claim is owned by Dan  I/indeburg.  An assessment is to be done shortly  on the Fontenoy, when the property  will be crown granted.  The Old England, upon which work  is now going on, looks well.  MINING NOTES.  B. A. Bielenberg went up to work on  the Anadonda, Deadwood camp, on  Sunday.  The owners of the Smuggler mine  have leased the Strathyre Company's  mill  at Fairview for six month.  The Boundary Falls shaft has been  timbered down to its present depth and  sinkingc will probably be started in a  few days.  The flow of water into the No 7 shaft  is beginning to be troublesome, and it  -was found necessary this week to put  another horse on the whim.  Jack: Harlan left last week for Spokane. Upon his return he and his  partner, E). C. Brown, intend going  over to the Similkameen to prospect.  Jim Dale has uncovered a body of  rich quartz two feet wide on the Combination, in Smith's camp. There is  also a three-foot ledge of plumbago on  the claim.  The pump ordered some weeks ago  from Rossland for the Jewel was delivered at Marcus, but until the roads are  in a better condition it will probably  be stored there. Meanwhile water,  which pours into the shaft very rapidly,  is hoisted out by the slow bucket process, and but for the 10-foot sump work  would have been stopped ere this.  Good headway is being made in the  drift.  w  #^#####*#########  wghB      wgky      w$v      <4p?      w^u*    ~<j&r  W.     i/���     ARMSTRONG.  ^��*?es>*5xi*����5��"-S53i^  ��dt>T     -"WgfcT       *&r  L.

McAULEY & McCUAIG, Proprietors,  i'.  i!  j  ii THE   BOUNDARY   CREEK   TIMES,  fHE   RAILWAY   POLICY.  Mr. C. Shaw, CE.,when asked what  he thought of the amendments the Government have offered to  the  Railway  Eoan Bill, expressed himself as  being  very  well  satisfied.     He  said : " You  see the original   bill  would have just  killed Us.    The Dominion  government  were   only  prepared  to  subsidise  the  V. V.  &  E.   provided   the   Provincial  government showed their approval by  also assisting* the construction  of the  line.    If we had g*one to the  Dominion  for a bonus, and the Railway I<oan Bill  as first drafted  had  been  made  law,  they would have  answered  us   ' Why,  your   scheme   cannot   be   much   good  when your local g-overnment won't help  you ; they are bon using* Heinze and the  . C.P.R., not your company.'    As  it is,  we expect to get the usual bonus from  the Dominion of $3,200  per  mile,   and  Mr.   Blair  (the  minister  of railways)  further agreed to  the  reasonableness  of the demand that double the customary bonus, or $6,400 per mile should be  given for the building- of some portions  of the line where the engineering difficulties were exceptionally great."  Mr. Shaw is fairly certain that a section of the V. V. & E. from Okanag-an  Falls to Boundary Creek will be constructed this year. He thinks Okanag-an Falls will be the starting point,  and when that section is completed  communication will be established between Vernon and Boundary, as the  steamboat will run down from Penticton to the" Falls directly the Okanag-an  river is straightened and a dam put in  at the foot of the lake to keep its level  up to hig*h water mark.  The most expensive part of the line <r  to build will be in the vicinity of Chilliwhack, where the road bed will have  to be raised above hig*h water mark ;  up the Tulameen river ; for some distance down the west fork of Rock  creek; and for parts of the way between Christina and Robson. The  mnnicipality of Chilliwhack will probably assist the construction of the line  in that neighborhood.  Proposed Change in the Mining Laws.  News-Advertiser : Important changes  in the mining law are embodied in the  report of the mining* committee presented to the House last" week. It is  recommended that miners' licenses be  issued only to British subjects or aliens  declaring their intention of becoming-  such and taking out naturalization papers. Any person obtaining a crown  g-rant will be entitled to purchase the  surface rig-hts at $5 an acre ; and in  case of adverse claims the burden of  proof of informality in the contested  location will be upon the person filing*  the adverse, instead of the original  locator being* required to establish his  rights as at present.  New Buildings on Copper Street.  The erection of a larg*e two-storey  building 24x50 ft. has been commenced  by Mr. John Hamill on Copper street.  The building", which is admirably situated for the purpose, is to be partitioned into offices and rented. Several  applications have already been made  for rooms, chiefly by professional men.  Mr. Hamill further proposes to build  on the adjoining lot at the corner of  Copper and Greenwood streets, a three-  storey block. He has recently boug*ht  a number of lots in Greenwood, in addition to those purchased last fall, and  has great faith in the future of the  town.  Work is to be resumed on the Adirondack, Kimberley camp, in a few days.  nansttOBcnn?  Rossland.  Greenwood.  LIAVITED    LIABILITY.

Robt.' Wood, McMann and Olson &  Phelan.      .  Some very fine ore is being* taken  out of the War Eagle claini, on Rock  creek, owned by Copelandand Yonkin.  At a depth of 40 feet in the shaft the  ledge has been found to be fully 16 feet  wide. "The ore is almost clean copper  pyrites.  Rossland Miner :   The  underwriting*  is being obtained of the Adams (B.C.)  Company, organized with a   capital of  ,��100,000 in ��1 shares.    The company  acquires  21  claims  in  Kootenay  and  Boundary*,   including  the  Skylark   in  Ainsworth camp,   Bon  Ton  in  Kaslo  district, the Mt.  Adams  group  in  the  ^Slocan, the Mammon  near  Trail, the  Cordick in  Boundary  Creek,   and  the  Okanagan divide group.   Capt. Adams  is to be  the local  managing*  director.  The purchase price of these  properties  is to be ��77,000, of which ��2,000  is to  be paid in cash and the balance in fully  paid up shares.    The  working*  capital  will amount to ��23,000.

The tunnel is designed, to cut through all three ledges  and will prove the claim to a considerable depth. Work will be carried on  under the supervision of Messrs. Collins and Porter.  Fractions Staked near the Mother Lode.  The other day a prospector, named  Martin Welsh measured the Primrose  claim, adjoining the Mother Lode in  Deadwood camp, and found that it was  2,300 feet in length from the No. 1 to  the No. 2 post. He consequently staked  off a 700-foot fraction which he called  the Tenbrook, north of the Primrose  and west of the Mother Ivode. When  the Mother Ivode was surveyed recently  Mr. Coryell found that a fraction existed on the north between it and the  Copper King. He informed Mr. Keffer  of the fact, who staked the Don Julio  fraction which is 200 feet wide.  To Sink on the No. 7.  Instructions have been received by  the local manager of the Boundary  Mines Company to carry the present  shaft on the No. 7 down another 100  feet,, thereby .proving the vein to a  depth of 250 feet. At 50 and 100 feet  ,respectively crosscuts will be run to  tap the ledge, the sinking being.down  in soft rock about eight feet away from  the ore body. A steam pump has been  ordered by the company for the No. 7,  and will be installed in the course of  the next few weeks.  CAMP   McKINNEY   NOTES.  The first payment has been made on  the Climax claim, adjoining the Cariboo and bonded to an eastern syndicate.  Work is to be started shortly on the  Fraser, owned by Mr.  Hugh Cameron.  Mr. Newman one of the owners of  the O.K. mine at Rossland, visited the  camp last week and was very favorably  impressed with the great showings on  the Cariboo, Minnehaha and other  properties.  The Victoria ledge has widened considerably lately.  The Minnehaha mine is shortly to  be equipped with a 40 h.-p. boiler and  engine, a steam hoist and a sawmill.  MINING NOTES.  Mr. Henneage, holding the bond on  the City of Paris and. Lincoln, in  White's camp, is expected to arrive  from England next week, when work  will be resumed on both properties.  In about two weeks time a force of  probably 25 men will be put to work on  the Boundary Creek M. & M. Co.'s  properties. At the present time the  surface water is proving very troublesome at the D. A.  Mr. W. T. Thompson this week bonded the Jim, in Wellington camp, from  George Cook, for a mining syndicate.  A good figure is asked for the property  and 10 per cent, was paid on the bond.  The Jim has a great showing of pyrr-  hotite ore, carrying well in gold and  copper.  One of the directors of the Boundary  Mines Company is expected to visit the  camp within the next two weeks and  work will probably not be resumed on  the Mother Lode until his arrival. It  is expected that development work  will then be carried on continuously  during the year.  Mr. A. H. MacFarlane, representing  the syndicate holding a bond on the  Sunset and Crown Silver claims, arrived in Greenwood on Friday's stage.  A number of tenders for the 300 feet of  tunneling'which the syndicate propose  to have done  to  open   up  the  claims,  have been sent in and will be considered at once.  Mr. T. McAuley, of Midway, who  has been a patient in the hospital for  the last week, is rapidly becoming convalescent and hopes to return home  next week.  Mr. Geo. Dawson, secretary of the  Midway Company, writes to say that  it is altogether likely that one of the  directors of the company will visit  Midway shortly.  The foundations have been laid for a  large and artistically designed house  which is being erected by Mr. Keffer  at Anaconda. The house will contain  eight rooms on the ground floor, including offices and a laboratory ; a  conservatory is also to be built, leading  from the drawing room.  ^t>9^9>9<��*-9<9>��<91t''9<0>^49>-9<9>-9<9>-9^a>9^a^g  ��� V  I Garland & Co.,  Ot��9<0>+<a>-B*49>e-4B>^<0*-9*ta>-&-*9**&-40P-9<0>-*-0>0-49>*9-^9<9  SMITH & McLEOD  Proprietors of the  VERNON   SAW,  PLANING   AND  /MOULDING A\ILLS  Sash and Door Factory at Vernon.

Mr. Harry Guess left for Fair view  :���;��� to-day. ���  , Mr. Russell,, of Russell '"&', Co., left  Brandon on Saturday and is expected  to reach Greenwood at the beginning  of next week.  The mail between Greenwood and  Grand Forks was carried for several  days last week on horseback, owing- to  the condition of the roads. Stage communication was, however, ag-ain established on Tuesday.  Notice has been received from the insurance companies carrying- risks in  Greenwood that unless some effort is  made to clear away the brush and dead  timber on the outskirts of the town, all  policies will be cancelled.  Subscriptions have been raised this  week to grade Government street and  put a sidewalk down from Mr. Buck-,  ley's harness shop to Russell & Co.'s  hardware store. Directly the surveyors have completed the plotting* of the  Dundee addition they will take the  levels of the street.  Messrs. Keedy & Ratcliffe have received part of their machinery for the  manufacture of sash and doors and the  rest is on the road. The firm claim  that they can turn out sash and doors  from their factory here very much  cheaper than the imported g-oods can  be bought for.        ,  In laying- out the Dundee addition to  Greenwood townsite, wide streets  should be allowed for in the . business-  portion afiid in every case an alley way  should be left in the rear. of the lots.  As the town g-ets built up much inconvenience is likely to result from lack  of such foresig*ht.  The appearance of the town mig*ht  . be wonderfully improved if property  owners would follow Messrs. Seymour  & Co.'s excellent example of planting-  trees oh the street before' their houses  or places of business. All these thing-s  assist in g-iving* a place an air of permanence, and strangers are likely to  be8 impressed with this idea.    .  . Mr. Elkins' house on Eong* Eake  street was completed this week and  may be described as one of. the neatest  building-s in the town. The log-s of  which it is built are admirably fitted  tog*ether, and with the red painted roof  and the white-washed walls the house  would not look out of place in a much  more important town than Greenwood  has yet become.  The hug-e boulder which stood before  Olsen & Phelan's store and was certainly neither a thing* of beauty nor a  joy for ever (if one happened to run  against it on a dark night), has, it is  satisfactory to note, been removed. At  the rate improvements are being made  Government street will soon compare  favorably with other principal streets  of the town.   It certainly does not now.  " Father Pat's " Postcard.  " Father Pat " Irwin was asked by  the editor of a church paper published  in Vancouver to solicit subscriptions  for the publication. His reply, written  on a postcard, is so thoroughly characteristic that it is worth reproducing :  '* Can't do it, you know ; no possible  sale for ' Record' here yet; folk top  mad on shares. We are only a unit in  the missionary district of Trail and  Kettle River, 105 miles wide, with  Trail, Grand Forks, Carson, Greenwood, Anaconda, Midway, and Rock  Creek (with lots of " side dishes " and  camps) j " cities " all of them.

Haas is preparing" to start  work on the Golconda group in Smith's  camp.  Assays made from averaged samples  taken from the bottom of the shaft on  the Highland Queen went $17.50 in g*old  and silver.  Work is to be started in about two  weeks time upon the Gold Bug and  Hidden Treasure, owned by Mr. Druck-  er, M.P., in Deadwood camp.  Prospectors are beginning to flock  into the hills in the. neighborhood of  Christina lake. Last week, it is stated,  about 150 men arrived in the camp.  Mr. Hanley, of Spokane, manager of  the Keough Gold Mining Company,  has advised the purchase of a steam  hoist for the R. Bell, in Summit camp.  The contractors sinking* on  the  Republic are making about 1%. feet a day  and the ledg-e has widened to four feet. .  The shaft is being sunk on the  hangv  ing* wall. ���"  Mr. S. M. Hinman writes from Alexander, N.Y., to say that he hopes to  organize a company shortly to purchase property in Boundary.  . As was predicted in a former  issue,  prospectors  are  already  beginning* to  . strike out for the new field  tip  Kettle  river.    Several parties  left this  week  with supplies.  Tom Walsh returned on Tuesday  from Spokane and Rossland and intends to at once start work on the properties he recently bonded in Greenwood camp.  Messrs. Young* and Aspinwall, who  hold a bond on the Monarch, in Greenwood camp, are visiting Fairview and  are expected to arrive in Boundary  next week, when a force of 20'men will  be put to work on the properties.  The Columbia, in Summit camp,  owned by Archie Connors, has now a  fine showing- of solid ore. A 25-foot  tunnel has been driven in on the ledg*e.  A big* showing- has also been made in  the last two weeks on the Summit and  Hopewell in the same camp.  Jack Dufour finished the assessments  this week on the Barrow, Dr. Jim and  I.C.W., in Skylark camp. At the bottom of a 12-foot hole on the Barrow is  four feet of rich looking* decomposed  quartz. A two-foot vein was discovered  on the Dr. Jim. Messrs. Dufour and  Fisher have left to prospect near Christina lake.  W. A. Shaw, who has been working-  all winter on the north extension of the  Cordick. in Summit camp, has struck  a fine ledge of copper pyritic ore which  he believes to be a continuation of the  R. Bell lead. The Cordick is itself the  north extension of the R. Bell. The  discovery of mineral was only recently  made.  Mr. W. T. Smith, during his last  visit to Spokane, took with him a  splendid sample of ore weighing nearly  125 pounds from the Republic, which  caused much comment in that place.  The Republic ore averages $60 to the  ton and is free milling, so that if the  company were to erect a mill and concentrator the property would pay handsome dividends at the present time. It  is the intention, however, to thoroughly  prove both the Republic and Last  Chance claims before establishing*  works to treat the ore, and Mr. Smith  hopes to continue the shaft on the Last  Chance down another 100 feet this  summer.  The Spring Freshets.  ���Mr. Wm. Powers, proprietor of the  Midway saw-mill, has,' it is estimated,  lost upwards of 100,000 feet of logs by  the rapid rising- of Kettle river. At  Grand Forks the loss of log-s has been  still greater.  NO  halSvWay MEASURES.  0  The citizens of Greenwood are to be1  commended for the decisive stand they  took on the Government's proposed  15-puzzle Railway Policy. ( The citi=  zens of that hustling little burg are a  wide-awake, liberal, progressive' and  patriotic people, who take an active in-1  terest in all that pertains to the welfare of British Columbia. That they  cannot be hoodwinked is evidenced by  the judgment they use in purchasing  their Groceries and Clothing, the ma-  jority   dealing    at    the  White   Front  Store.
