AST week the pupils of the Greenwood public school  ^J^ were instructed in the art of ploughing (on the  black-board). Of all the absurd things ever heard of,  the teaching 'of agriculture in public schools���particularly  so in the schools of a mining district���'-" takes the bun."  Even in a rural agricultural district it is strongly to be  questioned whether, the number of young children who are  taught the chemical properties of ' manures' and other  branches of learning appertaining to scientific farming in  schools, and who clean stables, cut "wood and milk cows at  home, derive nearly as much practical benefit from the former as they do from the latter ; but in the cities and rural  mining district schools what on earth the object is'in cramming the helpless children with a lot of stuff they in nine  cases out of ten cannot swallow, must .be left to the Hon.  the Minister of Education to explain. If it is necessary at  all to enlarge the curriculum of the public schools, why not  discriminate between localities ? Teach agriculture in  farming communities, and elementary geology or mineralogy (at all times interesting studies) to .the sons and  daughters of miners. -  ��&  iif  In view of the probable incorporation of Greenwood as a  municipality within the next few months, it is highly important that property owners should have their titles - properly registered, so that, in the first place, there .may be a  sufficient number of representative as well as eligible candidates ; and secondly, that those who will be obliged to.  contribute towards the maintenance of the local government  miy also have a voice in the administration of its affairs.  Despite the contradiction of our contemporary, the " Miner,",  difficulty is being experienced at Grand Forks in the matter  of nominating duby qualified men to sit as an aldermanic  board. Again, if we are to accept the " Miner's " statement  that the population of Grand Forks is 500, then barely eight  per cent, of the community are entitled to the franchise,���a  very deplorable state of affairs.  Under ordinary circumstances the incorporation of so  young a town as Greenwood would be in the highest degree  inadvisable. But the conditions are n'ot ordinary. Without  any attempt at exaggeration, Greenwood promises to become the central mining town of the, greatest copper-gold  producing districts in the -whole of North America. A good  deal depends upon the progress made in the construction of  railroads, particularly of the Columbia & Western, whether  or not there will be much excitement in Boundary this  summer; but at any rate the towns will have a compar-.  atively large floating as well as resident population. The  danger of fever and epidemics resulting from the primitive  sanitary arrangements���however stringently the regulations are enforced���now in force, is not imaginary nor to be  considered lightly, and only under capable municipal management could an adequate and efficient sewerage system  be inaugurated.  If there is a probability of a great plague there is a still  greater likelihood of a great fire during the summer ; and  though there are instances in the history of British Columbia of towns rising Phcenix-like from the ashes, indued with  fresh life and energy, it is very possible that the people of  Greenwood would not care to take the chances of witnessing  the phenomenon. Subscriptions may be raised to defray  the expense of providing some kind of fire protection for the  town without going to the length of incorporation ; but  what kind of protection1 would  it  be ?    A  very one-horse  affair at the best. Moreover, why should the residents���the  people who are now risking everything on the promise of  the future���bear all the burden ? Quite a large proportion  of the town property is owned by speculative holders, who  toil not neither do they spin (even yarns) in the interest of  Greenwood. Most of them purchased lots when the price  was low, and. now complacently watch the appreciation in  the value of their investments owing to the improvements  undertaken by others.  The question of street improvements must also be considered. The present condition of the principal streets of the  town, it must be admitted, is not creditable to the progressive spirit that undoubtedly animates the majority ofr the.,  townspeople. Until Greenwood is an incorporated city  there are only two means of remedying the evil':" Kither the  residents on each street must subscribe the sum requisite to  carry out the desired improvements, or the townsite owners  be asked to do so. The objection to, the first of these alter-  . natives is, as already suggested, that speculative owners of  lots, while reaping all the benefits, escape contributing to  the fund ; and also, as long as the matter is voluntary, one  must expect to find some men, even among , the residents,  less liberally disposed than others;    There is one drawback  to the second plan of asking the proprietors of the .townsite  to-undertake to put (say) Government and Copper streets in  decent condition, and that is that they would doubtless not  unreasonably refuse, for the simple reason that all or nearly  all the lots on these two streets have passed put'of their-,  hands.. Furthermore, the,original proprietor, Mr. Robert  Wood, has done almost as much for- the town as could be  rightfully expected of him.   ���>  Taking these few considerations  alone���and  many more  arguments might be profitably advanced���there are  strong  reasons in favor of the,early incorporation of Greenwood as  a city.    Providing, of course, that the men forming the first  council adopted an   economical,   albeit  progressive,   policy  based on sound business principles, the  individual   expense  to taxpayers need not exceed*to any appreciable degree the  sum which each is now obliged to pay into the provincial  treasury pratically without receiving therefrom any direct  benefit. There are, we believe, men in Greenwood capable  of filling positions on the civic board wisely and well, who  would consent to act without salary, and many, other expenses which go towards making municipal government an  expensive luxury might without difficulty be curtailed.  '/if  die.  ���sn*-  Judging from two items in the Estimates of Revenue for  the next financial year, the Government foresee a big trade  in miners' licenses but don't hope for any increase of  revenue from the sale of marriage permits. I^ast year the  revenue derived from the issuance of miners' licenses was  $45,000, and from marriage licenses $3,500 ; from June 30th  of this year the revenue from the former is expected to  double itself, notwithstanding the order-in-council whereby  mine laborers are exempted from the tax ; while the Provincial Treasurer won't be disappointed so long as he realizes as much during the next financial year as   he  did  last  from this decidedly unjust tax on matrimony���the Government should appropriate an adequate sum wherewith to  bonus every bachelor taking the heroic plunge, instead of  taxing him. It would pay better in the long run than the  crofter scheme. But to return to the point: it seems to most  people that the Estimates in these two particulars are at  variance. The state of the matrimonial market is an infallible barometer of prosperity, and if as everyone, even  the Government, expects the provincial mining industry  will receive a tremendous impetus this year, and as the  Estimate shows there will be nine thousand more prospectors in the field, most of them, no doubt, from a fond  mamma's point of view, eligible young men,; if no more  marriage licences are issued this than they were last year  it will then be high time to import spinsters from the EJast, THE   BOUNDARY   CREEK   TIMES,  THE   "RAILWAY   POLICY."  A representative meeting of the residents of Greenwood was held in the  school-hduse on Monday night to discuss the government " railway policy."  Mr. L/amb was voted to the chair and  Mr. Jacobs acted as secretary.  After the meeting had been called to  order, the chairman stated that he had  received a letter from Mr. Graham, the  member for East Yale, calling   his  attention to the government's   " railway  policy " as set forth   in   a  Bill  which  had been introduced in the  legislature  authorising a loan of $2,500,000 to provide funds -whereby to subsidise certain  proposed railroads.    Mr.   Graham was  ���   anxious to  obtain  the  opinion  of  his  constituents  regarding  the  "policy,"  that he might vote in   accordance with  their wishes.    The chairman then read  - the clauses of the Bill. It was proposed  to subsidise three roads ; of  these  the  building of the first named from  Penticton to Boundary Creek alone directly  concerned the people of this district. It  would be rioted that by the  provisions  of the bill the Lieutenant-Governor in  Council was vested with very   extraordinary powers ; he could do pretty well  what he  chose,   and  clause  10  would  further seem to indicate that the   Columbia  &  Western  was  the  company  which it was proposed to subsidise.    It  was already known that  the  Lieutenant-Governor   was  a  director  of  this  company,    and    the    conclusion    was  therefore    obvious.       Moreover,    Mr.  Heinze had agreed in the  first place to  construct a railroad from the Columbia  river to Penticton and  had  received a  ���. provisional . land  grant,   although   he  had made no   application   for  governmental assistance when he   applied for  his charter.    So far as the  early   construction of a road from  Penticton   to  Boundary Creek was concerned he (the  chairman) could not see that  the benefit derived would be nearly so great as  the early construction of the road from  Rossland  westward.     It  was  for  the  meeting to decide whether, the proposed  " railway policy "  of the  government  met with their approval.  Mr. Sansom pointed out the advantage of a road from Boundary Creek to  Penticton, Ore, he said, could Joe shipped over the road to Penticton, thence  transferred to the steamer on Okan-  agan lake, transferred again to the  cars at Okanagan Landing, transferred  at Sicamous, and then if they hadn't  got a smelter at Vancouver they might  transport it to Tacoma or else dump it  in the bay (laughter).  Mr. Worgan hardly saw what use it  would be. for the meeting to express  any dissent; the government had  things all their own way.  Mr. Galloway, in the course of a capital speech, said that his views were  very decided : it was the duty of the  people of Greenwood to say what they  think and to protest very strongly  against the perpetration of what he  could only calla very palpable swindle  (hear, hear). The government's " railway policy " was nothing more nor less  than an attempt to squeeze the public,  and he did not believe for one moment  that on account of a subsidy the railroad would be constructed into this district a day sooner. By the very pro-  visions.of the bill a company need not  commence work for two years. If  Heinze or some one else had agreed to  start work at once from Penticton, it  niight not be quite so bad. But the  road we want is a road from the Coast,  Rossland.  Greenwood.  LIMITED    LIABILITY.  Qfteaf &rtatt anb (tttinmg Q0rofter0,  Financial &-Insurance Agents.  GEO.   R.

So far as the road from Bute  Inlet to Quesnelle was concerned, he  was assured that the engineering difficulties on some-parts of the. .road were  so great that no company would at-*  tempt to build a railroad, even with the"  promise of a subsidy of $4,000 per mile.  The proposed Chilliwhack road was  also absurdly unnecessary. What the  Chilliwhack farmers wanted was a  market for their produce. They were  already able to ship produce to the  . Coast cities by steamer, but their best  market would be the mining camps. As  citizens of Greenwood we should frame  a very strong' resolution condemning  the present action of the government  (applause).  Mr. Sansom thought tha.t Mr. Graham was acting in a very strange  manner. A deputation from the B. C.  M. & C. Association had waited upon  him in Victoria expressly for the purpose of stating the views of the people  of Boundary regarding. railroad construction, and here he was asking us  what we thought of the government's  present proposed policy. He (Mr. Sansom) thought the government were " a  thundering set of thieves."  Mr. McDonnell, as one of the delegates to the Coast, fully endorsed Mr.  Sansom's views.  Mr. C. JS&. Shaw, consulting engineer of the V. V. & E- Co., who was  present, said that his company were  still working on the scheme of building  a road from the Coast to the Columbia  river, and that they were more hopeful  that affairs would be carried to a successful issue now than heretofore.  Fresh negotiations were being made,.,  and the government had, he understood, agreed to alter their "policjv" in  the company's favor. .  Mr. Black moved that a committee  be appointed to draft a resolution to be  sent to Mr. Graham protesting strongly  against the railway measure as. submitted. The resolution was carried  unanimously and Messrs. Galloway,  Hallett and Black deputed to act.  The meeting then adjourned.  Good Showing on the Brooklyn.  The result of the work recently prosecuted on the Brooklyn and Idaho  claims in Greenwood camp by George  Rumberger was highly satisfactory,  the assay values of the ore increasing  to an appreciable extent. The assays  of average sampled rock returned $15  in gold, silver and copper from the  bottom of the new shaft on the Brooklyn, whereas on the surface the valuations were rather less than half of  this return. Some 30 feet of work was  done.  The. shaft on the Highland Queen  was down 20 feet on Tuesday and  showed at the bottom a two-foot lead  of high grade ore.  J.'SUUA-.W JS.

[special correspondence.]  There is nothing of great importance  going on at present in Grand Forks  district in the way of mining, although  there are a number of prospects being  worked in all directions from here, the  principal of which are up the North  Fork.  The announcement of the sale of the  Pathfinder by the sheriff, to satisfy a  judgment against the property held by  F. C. Coring against #. C. Spencer,  and which took place on Monday, practically ties up the mine in the same  line with the Volcanic and Seattle,with  no prospect of their being worked this  season. In the Pathfinder case, according to Thos. Parkinson's,information, Spencer has no valid interest in  the mine ,* that two years ago he provided his proportion of one-third for a  grubrstake ; that over a year ago he  got into trouble and debt in Rossland  and left for parts unknown, and.therefore allowed his license to expire for  1896 ; he has never contributed his proportion to the assessment work on .the  claim or its development���-about $1,500.  The judgment was bought in by * Par-,  kinson on conditions to be settled in  the future.      ��� .  The Volcanic company will hold a  meeting at Spokane on the 26th inst.,  and it is claimed on good authority  that they are now prepared to settle up  all matters and start in to work the  mine, at the same time build a 100-ton  smelter near the property. But affairs  are in such a shape as to throw considerable doubt on these promises.  The new company owning the Seattle say they are going to work as soon  as practicable ; the pld company contend they shall not. Thus the Seattle  is practically in a state of litigation.  The Bon it a people are working two  shifts on their property, under the direction of Mr. Jas. Cunningham, who  has bonded a controlling interest in the  same and will pay the price asked providing they find-a sufficient amount of  ore in the 100-foot crosscut tunnel, now  in about 50 feet -with no very satisfactory results ; atthe same time the vein  has been tapped on the footwall.  Jack Hanley came over from the Old  Dominion mine, near Colville, last  week and has taken charge of the R.  Bell property in Summit camp. They  are expecting machinery for a hoist in  a short time and work will be pushed  on this property.  Rossland parties who are furnishing r  money for developing the Empire, have  notified their manager here to sink the  shaft to the 50-foot and then crosscut  the vein. The same parties will also  start work on the Cain, three miles up  the North Fork.  A new camp is being opened at Edwards' ferry, called Edwards' camp.  Fine gold ore has been found here and  preparations are being made for doing  considerable work on the Ajax, Skylight and Southern Belle. Fine float  carrying free gold has been found in  this locality for a number of years past  and it is now thought the main ledge  has been located.  Several prospecting parties have left  for the upper North Fork country to  put in the season on the main and east  forks, where some fine free milling  quartz was found last fall, as well as a  promising placer territory.  *y*w>����<aMi<aMi<ii  Mineral Glasses and Prospecting Compasses.

Co.'s  "0 shares were sold in one day last  week.  The company are disposing of a  large  number of shares in England.  The Iron Pyrites, in Deadwood camp,  is steadily improving with development; the whole of the bottom of the  shaft is in ore and more copper is coming in.  Mr. J.   B.  McArthur  has  bought  a  , half interest in the Hamfat, adjoining.  the R. Bell, in Summit camp.    This is  one of the most promising prospects in  the camp.  Assessment work was completed last  week on,the Nellie B., adjoining the  Texas, in Providence camp. A small  vein.of high grade galena was. uncov-  ered.  There was another case the other day  of an uprooted tree resulting in sLgood  find, Jack Harlan discovering thereby  what appears to be a g*ood body of  quartz which r>ans well, in Deadwood  canrp.  Tom Pascoe is doing assessment  ���work on a claim in Skylark camp,  originally known as the Jo Jo, adjoining the Meadow I/ark on the east, and  has struck a vein of decomposed quartz  of from A% to 5 feet wide between well  defined walls.  Mr.W. J. Porter returned this week'  after an absence of two months in California. He states that San Francisco  people are much interested in Rossland  and" that a number of mining men  from that place will probably visit  Boi.md.ary- this year. Work is to be  started-shortly on the Golden Crown.  Work has been stopped on the Canadian for the common reason of water  in the shaft, and it will. probably be  three weeks before it can be continued.  When the. men went up on Saturday  they found that the water which had  accumulated overnight was 12 feet deep  in the shaft. The Canadian was just  beginning to show up well.  CAMP   McKINNEY   NOTES.  [SPECIAL    COKEESPONDENCE.]  The deep snow is still retarding mining operations in this camp, but it is  rapidly melting and another week or  ten days of good weather will see most  of it gone.  Mr. J. A. Currie, of Toronto, one of  the directors of the Minnehaha Mining*  Co., arrived in camp on Tuesday with  a force of experienced men to commence work on the claim. Cabins will  be built at once and every preparation  made for an active campaign. He will  leave for Rossland in about ten days,  and Major Megraw is expected here  shortly to take charge of the work. The  shaft, which shows over three feet of  solid high grade quartz, will be sunk  100 feet and drifts run in. The machinery, which will consist of a 40-  horse-power boiler and hoisting engine,  will be brought in as soon as the state  of the roads will permit.  The assessment work has been done  on the Mountain Sheep, which lies  south of the Minnehaha, and the assays  have gone as high as $12 to the ton.  The five-drill Rand compressor is  being placed in position on the Cariboo  and will be running shortly. It is the  intention of the company to increase  the capacity of the mill to 40 stamps.  The general feeling in the camp is  very antagonistic to the government's  "railway policy," especially against  the proposed money bonus to Heinze  and his associates. p,  W.    J.    ARMSTRONG.

Mr. Graham, a contractor and builder, formerly of Armstrong-, , has come  to reside in Greenwood and will shortly  be joined by his wife.  Messrs. Miller Bros, are enlarging*  their building- on Copper street and are  renting the south side rooms to Mr.  Hicks for a restaurant.  Mr. Germaine has purchased a lot on  Copper street, between Guess Bros.'  office and Jacobson's building, and is  making arrangements for the erection  of a building thereon.  Mr. Randolph Stuart is having a  house built on his pre-emption on L/ong  lake. Other improvements are also to  be done in order that a crown grant  may be obtained at once.  A Mr. Alexander, who resided, for  several years in Portland, Oregon, and  was known as one of the finest Rugby  football players on the coast, arrived  in Anaconda this week and intends  prospecting up Boundary creek during  the summer.  Mr; C. 2��. Shaw, C.E., arrived in  Greenwood on Sunday, accompanied  by h(is two assistants, Messrs. Dove  and Birnie. Mr. Shaw intends to reside here permanently, with his family.  He is engaged as consulting- engineer  for the V. V. & ]��. Ry. Co.  The Dundee section of the townsite  is being cleared of stumps and brush  and there can be no doubt but that lots  in this part of the town will find ready  sale directly they are placed on the  market. The ground is level and the  site admirable for business purposes.  .  The article descriptive of the camp  issued in the form of a pamphlet by the  " Anaconda Commercial Club has been  favorably commented upon by several  influential journals in the east, the  Montreal Mining News going so far as  to reproduce itointact in the last issue  of that paper.  The freight and duty on $18 worth of  tobacco imported last week by a Greenwood firm, amounted to $19.05 ; $12.60  worth of hose cost, $6.90 in freight; and  a stove invoiced at $16.00 had a freight  charge of $17.62 added to its cost. In  this degree are residents of Boundary  handicapped.  It is rumored that Billy Porter be-  .came a benedict during his recent stay  in California, and not content with  taking this step on his own account he  also acted as a sort of French father fcr  Jack Farrell, whom he betrothed to  another fair damsel of the sunny State.  Freighters on the Marcus road are  having, a hard time of it. The road  from Marcus is, if anything, in a worse  condition than the road from Penticton  at present. One man leaving Marcus  with a load, after going some distance,  was oblig*ed to unhitch, leave his wagon  by the roadside and turn back with the  team. In another case it required 22  horses to pull an empty wagon out of a  mud hole near Pierre's ranch.  7i ^I^T^trrimarnTrfittirratlWnVmnrr*- ��-w>^ ii'iirTT*  The contract has been let for the  erection of a large building-, to be used  as a brewery, across Boundary creek,  on the Dundee addition to the townsite.  Mr. Otto Mangett, a brewer of Chewala  (Wash.), has made all arrangements to  start manufacturing beer by the 1st of  July. The plant, of 10-barrel capacity,  is to be brought in at once.  Mr. Morrison  is  undecided  whether  to run a daily   stage   between   Marcus  and Greenwood or to  go  off  the  road  altogether.    The great difficulty is the  question of horse feed, hay   having   to  be hauled all the way from   Marcus   to  Greenwood  at   naturally   a   great  expense.     Chiefly   on   this   account  the  proprietors of the  stage   lines   on   this  road have arranged to increase the fare  from $6 to $7.    Mr. Morrison is  one of  the principal shareholders in  the  Reservation M. & M. Co., and is therefore  in a  position  to  forsake  the   arduous  life of a stage driver which  he has followed for so long a time ; at the  same  time if he'makes up his mind to  do so  many who appreciate his punctual habits and regard for  the  comfort  of his  passengers will regret the  disappearance from the road of  the   " Old  Reliable," nas  he  has  been  appropriately  termed.  Branching Out.  , Mr. G. B. Taylor left on Tuesday to  open a general  store  at  Rock Creek,  having  entered   into   partnership   arrangements with Rendell & Co.    Rock  Creek promises in   the  near  future  to  become a very  important  centre.    In  the   immediate  neighborhood   are  be-  . lieved to  exist  vast  deposits  of  coal,  the exploratory work so  far done having proved entirely satisfactory.   Fireclay has also been discovered and will  become very valuable in the  event  of  smelters being built in the district. Indeed   it   is   by   no   means   unlikely, in  view of the valuable  mineral discoveries at James creek and on Kettle river,  that Rock Creek will not  only   become  a smelting point but a coaling-  station  for  railroads.      IDven   at  the  present  time Rock Creek affords a capit-d opening for a general store and Mr. Taylor,  has sufficient business   acumen to take  advantage of the fact; his long experience of store-keeping and personal acquaintance with so many of the miners  and prospectors throughout  the Kettle  river and Okanagan  districts, will undoubtedly ensure his success.  ROCK   CREEK MINING   NOTES.  [SPECIAL   correspondence.]  Quite a large number of new locations have been made here, lately and  prospectors are starting out every day.  Copper sulphides is the characteristic  ore of this neighborhood.  Mr. W. T. Thompson has bonded  Tom Curry's property here and intends  to push its development. He believes  in " burning-, powder " in order to make  a rapid sale.  The Rock Creek hotel is being overhauled and enlarged in readiness for  the summer's travel.  Jimmy Atwood came in from Midway on Tuesday to work on his locations near tliis settlement.  The second payment of $4,000 on the  ���No. 7 was made by the Boundary Mines  Co. on Tuesday. The final payment  will not be due for 60 days. The No. 7  continues to look well; the drift on the  ledge from the crosscut has been driven  25 feet, all in splendid ore.  ��%(*MMa.v��<e��>a-<e��H.*��a��*-a <9> ��<��>Xt����<��-����J��'H��*;^  1 Garland & Co., i  " ' a  Dealers in ���  I Real Estate 1  A v  ?

A Nelson (Wash.) correspondent  writes : Spring has at last set in on  this part of the reservation and much  development is going on. The Reservation M. & M. Co. are working a large  force of men on their property near the  boundary, and the reports are that but  for the present transportation facilities  the property would be a shipper.  A new strike was made on   the   Star  and Crescent, across Kettle river from  the famous L,e Fleur, on the  2nd  inst.  While doing surface work, a   fine body  of copper pyrites and hematite was uncovered further  up  the  hill  from  the  present  tunnel,   which   is  in 37  feet.  This company has had six men at work  for the last month,  and  from  present  indications bids fair to rival   any. property in this section.    Assays of the following values have  been   taken   from  this property : Copper,  $14.40 ;   silver,  $19.93 ; gold, $26.70.  MINING NOTES.  Machinery is shortly to be installed  on the Reservation Mining Co.'s properties to the south.of White's camp.  Talking about unique names of mineral claims, a location recently staked  up Kettle river, which has been called  " Truth Conquers," would be diffioult  to beat in this respect.  The work which has been carried on  at the coal deposits at Rock' creek for  some time has resulted in the striking  of another seam of coal of an excellent  quality.  Assessment is being done on the New  York, the ^northern extension of the  Brooklyn, in Greenwood camp. The  property is owned by Mr. J. B. McAr-  thur, a well known lawyer of Rossland.  A good strike was made this week on  the Iyake, in Skylark camp, a five-foot  ledge running east and west being  struck from the crosscut, 40 feet from  the shaft on the iron capping. The  ore is pyrrhotite, and shows a large  percentage of copper pyrites.  Two men went up on Tuesday to do  assessment work on the Trilby, in Skylark camp. , This claim is owned by  Messrs. Randolph Stuart and W. H.  Norris, of Midway, and some $800 has  already been spent upon it in development. A crown grant is to be applied  for immediately  Messrs. T. McDonnell and J. Frank  have bonded the Dongola group of  claims at. Camp McKinney to Mr. T.  H. Colland, of Vancouver, who represents an Knglish syndicate. These  claims are situated near the Victoria  mine and have a good showing of  quartz.; .".'���;  At the sheriff's sales on Monday and  Tuesday, an undivided fourth interest  in the Pathfinder was sold at Grand  Forks for $2,500, the owners of the remaining interest being the purchasers.  The Nightingale fetched $120, and two  third interests in the Mountain View  and Stanley respectively $40 and $15.  The Greenwood correspondent of the  Spokesman-Review writes : Erroneous  statements have gone forth, claiming  that there are not enough miners in  the district to fill the places at the properties now being worked. The parties originating them are either ignorant of the facts or have little regard  for their fellow men. There are in the  district more than enough miners to  " go around " on all the work now in  progress and in contemplation for some  time to come.

Work on the Mother Lode will probably not be resumed until'-the: Company  have received Mr. Keffer's report,  which will not be for two weeks yet.  TO. C. Brown and Jack Harlan finished assessment work on the Iron Pyrites, Deadwood camp, yesterday. There  is a good showing in the shaft, which  is down 12 feet.  The prospecting season may be said  to have fairly set in, the snOw having  practically disappeared from the lower-  hills. Men are starting out every day  with pack animals.  A very perfect specimen of an Indian  arrow head, made from a piece of white  quartz, was picked up by Mr. J. C.  Haas near the I^ast Chance, in Smith's  camp, on Thursday.  An explanation why the coroner, Dr.  Jakes, was not notified concerning the  death of a prospector named Carter,  which occurred at Grand Forks last  week, is certainly in order. ��� ^  A fine ledge of ore seven feet wide  was struck this week on the Minnehaha  in Camp McKinney. The ore resembles that found on the Cariboo, but the  latter ledge has never been as wide as  seven feet.  Those wishing to join the Oddfellows  lodge in Greenwood at the present reduced membership fee should make application before May 1st; after that  date, on the expiry of the dispensation  granted to facilitate organizing, the  regular by-laws will come into force.  A week or so ago anyone suggesting  picnic-ing would have been looked upon as a promising subject for a lunatic  asylum; nevertheless yesterday���being  Good Friday���the Greenwood school  children had an enjoyable outing, the  weather being everything that could  be desired.  Those taking part in the concert to  be given by the ladies of Greenwood  next'Wednesday are practising assiduously ; a thorough canvass of the district was made this week, and judging  from the ready promises of support the  affair will without doubt be an immense sue-ess.  There was very nearly a sugar famine in town this week, but fortunately  Charlie Brandt, one of the Greenwood  Mercantile Co.'s teamsters, arrived on  Thursday night from Marcus with a  load of 3,500 lbs. Butter has also been  unobtainable in Greenwood or Anaconda for several days.  It is very likely that another saw-mill  will be established near Greenwood, -  probably at McDonald's ranch on Fholt''  creek, shortly. The increased demand  for lumber and the excessive prices  charged here at present, render competition a thing to be much desired under  the circumstances.  Mr. Robt. Wood returned from Victoria on Wednesday, much improved in  health and spirits. He believes firmly  that Greenwood will become the most  important town between Rossland and  Hope mountain, and if energetic work  on his part can make it so tliere is no  reason to doubt that his sanguine anticipations will ere long be realized.  While away Mr. Wood made application for the right to appropriate the  water of Boundary falls, Twin creek  and lOholt creek for the use of the town  and expects that the charter will be  granted this week. Electricity for  power and light will be generated at  the falls and transmitted ; while piping  will be laid to carry water for domestic  purposes from Twin creek at present,  and later when necessary from Eholt  creek. Mr. Wood hopes that the.town  will be incorporated in the immediate  future, when he will turn over his water rights to the city. As a matter of  fact he wrote to the private bills committee, asking that the charter be  granted him upon this understanding.  Messrs. Wiseman and Reeder have1  been working at different times during  the winter on the Texas, Providence  camp, and the ledge has been well  stripped. A contract will shortly be  let for the sinking of a shaft at a favorable spot where the lead has been exposed. Meanwhile an assessment is to  be done on the B. C, in Summit camp.  ANACONDA COMMERCIAL CLUB.  At the meeting on Wednesday Mr.  Kelliher was admitted to membership.  The chief business discussed of any  importance was the question of having  the road between Grand Forks and  Anaconda repaired at once. The road  is now in an almost impassable condition and it was pointed out that if the  superintendent, Mr. Cuppage, could be  induced to put a force of men to work  at the present time instead of delaying  as is usual till later in the year, the  benefit would be materially greater.  Mr. Hind said he had interviewed  Mr. Cuppage with regard to the matter  who informed him that if the Ariaconda  merchants would accept government  time checks from the road gang, he  would dp as desired. He (Mr. :Hind)  understood that the merchants agreed  to accept the checks, but as every day  was of importance he would propose  that a committee, be appointed to interview Mr. McMynn (who had special  powers to employ men at any time in  the year, when necessary to repair the  roads) and ask him to have the work  carried out; if he refused to do so, the  ^ committee .might ask the merchants of  Anaconda and Greenwood to contribute  towards a fund to improve the road for  the time being. The resolution was  carried. #  Mr. Hind stated that the townsite  company had made arrangements with  a brewer to establish a brewery in  Anaconda ; the building was to be  commenced before May 15th.  Mr. Alexander, of Portland, who was  present as a visitor, complied with a  request to make a few remarks. He  said : He was very pleased to be present at a meeting of the club ; he had  heard of the club and of the good work  it was doing in the interests of Boundary Creek whilst in Oregon. If he  became, as he hoped, a resident in the  district he would ask to be admitted to  membership.  Proposed Smelter on Boundary Creek.  Mr.. Hedley, of Nelson, the well-  known smelter man, arrived in Greenwood on Thursday and was interviewed  by a representative of The Times. He  said that his visit at the present time  was occasioned not so much for the  purpose of locating a smelter site as by  other business. He, however, expected  to return to Boundary at the beginning  of May, and hoped before then to receive advices pertinent to the establishment of a smelter at some point on  Boundary creek. "A smelter would,"  Mr. Hedley continued, "be erected at  once here if we were only satisfied that  a railway into the district was in a fair  way towards construction, and I think  I can persuade them to build.    I  don't  care in what direction they build, a  road so long as one is built."  "Well, a road from Penticton to  Boundary, for instance, wouldn't be  much good to you would itJ?','  " Why not ? If we can get coke in  at a reasonable figure���-that's the principal thing." J  "What about the Rock Creek coal ?  Have you seen the analyses ?"  " I have seen analyses made by other  people, but we don't know anything  about the coal beds there yet�� One  can't judge of values from analyses  made from surface coal. Of course if  there is good coking coal at Rock creek  it will make a wonderful. difference in  the cost of smelting."  R. LP.  The death of Mr. Thos. E. Kitchen,  M.P.P. for the Chilliwhack riding, New  Westminster district, which occurred  on the 5th inst., is a sad loss to the province. Mr. Kitchen was a member of  the legislature for eight years and ever  a fearless opponent of all measures  which in his opinion were detrimental  to the interests of the country. He was  a forcible and fluent speaker, an honest  and upright man. In Chilliwhack,  where he resided for nearly 20 years,  he won and maintained by his many  sterling characteristics the warm respect and regard of the entire community. The writer, who enjoyed a. close  intimacy.with Mr. Kitchen for a number of years, sincerely mourns the  death of a staunch and kind-hearted  friend.  F.   AUG.   HEINZE.

ASSOCIATION.  i  A meeting- of the above association  was held on Monday, a majority of the  members being- present. The chairman, Mr. Galloway, explained that the  regular fortnig-htly meeting's had not  been convened lately because no questions of sufficient moment had arisen  to make it worth while. The secretary  then produced a balance sheet, which  had been audited by Mr. W. B. Paton,  showing- a balance of $1.15 in the association's favor.  The chairman  said  he, thoug-ht  the  members would  agree  with  him  that  the balance  sheet  was  very  satisfactory, but if members  in  arrears with  their monthly dues had paid  it  would  have been still  more so.    There was,  however, another matter of which he  would like to speak : Messrs.   Rendell,  Kerr and himself had been   appointed  a  committee  to  open  the   Greenwood  camp road for traffic.    After obtaining*  several  opinions  as  to  the  best way  of proceeding" with the.task,   the  com-j?"  mittee had employed Sam  Martin  for  four days to drive four horses over the  road to  break  down  the  snow.    Sam  Martin was assisted by Mr. Graaf ;and  another man.    Mr. Graaf also  fed the  men and stabled and fed the horses free  of cost for the four days.    At  the   end  of this time Sam Martin  returned and  reported that  he  had  been  unable  to  open the road in the time, but thoug-ht  it would take four days more to  do so.  The  committee  decided  that  as  they  had gone so far, it would  be  better to  complete the work, and instructed Martin to this effect.    He was  away  considerably longer th'aii fourr days1 and  returned with an account for  13  days'  work and a  bill  from  Mr.   Graaf  for  board   and   horse  feed   amounting-  to  $41.25.    The whole cost of the work approximated $100, and he (Mr. Galloway)  was sorry to say that in  spite  of  this  expenditure the  road,   he   understood,  was not passable.   The fact of the matter was that more snow lay on the road  than  they   anticipated.    As, however,  the committee  had  done  all  that was  possible   under  the   circumstances, it  was for the meeting- to decide how  the  expenses   connected   with    the    work  should be met.  Mr. Black said the asso3iation was  in duty bound to pay the amount and  should pledge themselves to do so.  The secretary read the following- letters :  Ottawa, March 8th, 1897.  C. W. Sansom, Esq., Greeuwood :  Sir,���1 am desired by the Postmaster General  to acknowledg-e 3rours of the 20di   ult., representing- that the existing- arrang-einents for the  mail service of  Greenwood are unsatisfactory  and pointing- out how they  may  be  improved.  I have the honor to be, etc.,  A. LINDSAY, Supt.  Victoria, March 15th, 1897.  C.W.H. Sansom, Esq., Greenwood:  Sir,���Replying- to yours of the 22ud, referring-  to instructions which, it is claimed, have been  issued to the postmaster at Greenwood not to  forward mail from his office via Marcus for  points on the coast of B;C: I do not find that  an}- instructions have been issued to this effect.  I do not know whether Mr. Snodgrass has  made any arrangements with the parties who  are running- the stag-e between Grand Forks  and Greenwood to carry the mails dailj', and  will see what arrang-ements can be made in  this respect.���Yours truly,  E. H. FLETCHER, P. O. Inspector.  At the request of the chairman, Mr.  Rendell explained that in consequence  of a letter he had received some weeks  ag-o from the Grand Forks postmaster,  he had stopped forwarding- mail via  Marcus. He had subsequently heard  from the Inspector who had asked him  on what authority he had acted, and he  had replied by forwarding- the Grand  Forks   postmaster's  letter  to  the  In-  t>A  And  UNDERTAKING  &/*  ��� I beg- to notify the public that I have taken over Mr. W. B. Paton's stock  of Furniture, tog-ether with the Store on Copper street, and , that the present  stock will be at once added to.

Messrs. Olsen and G. B. Taylor were  elected to membership, and   the  meeting adjourned.  In Pass Creek Camp.  Assessment work was completed last  Saturday on the Barney Barnato, in  Pass creek, a 16-foot shaft being put  down at the discovery post. A ledge  four feet wide, showing copper and  iron, was uncovered. Owing to the  depth of the snow it was impossible to  prospect the claim for the ore-body,  and the strike therefore of this more or  less promising ledge may be described  as a fortunate fluke.  The Kettle-River Trail --���-���.  We are informed that Messrs. Miller  and Gordon last year cut a trail up  Lost creek, and that if this trail were  continued prospectors conld make Kettle river from Greenwood easily in a  day. It is most necessary that a trail  should be cut in this direction, as Kettle river and the West Fork will receive  more attention from prospectors this  season than any other section of the  district.  Business Competition in Greenwood.  Messrs. Smith & McRae, formerly of  Rossland, have opened a stationery  store in Mr. Jacobson's building on  Copper street, with a good stock of  books, stationery of all kinds, tobacco,  wall-paper, etc. Mr. McRae has had a  large business experience and was for  "some time in the employ of the well  known Rossland firm of stationers,  Wallace & Co. There are now no less  than five stationers doing business in  Greenwood and competition in every  class of business is becoming very  keen.  Will Carry on a Banking Business.  The fitting up of Messrs. Bealey &  Co.'s office on Government street was  completed on Saturday, Mr. Naden  being able to take possession. The  Company have now made all arrangements with regard to the carriage of  currency to enable them to conduct a  banking business.  TENDERS WANTED.
