A Weekly Paper published iii tlie interests ot the Boundary Creek Mining District  Vol, IV,  GREENWOOD, B,C��� SATURDAY, APRIL 16, 1898,  84  No; 6,  FROM   OTTAWA.  ���[SPKCIAI,    COKRESrONDENCK.]  (TTAWA, March 31.���The tide has turned in favor  of the Kettle River Valley Railwaj' and conse-  quently in favor of the people of Boundary Creek  district/The rubicon has been crossed ; the preamble of the bill, after the fiercest fight ever  seen in the railway committee room, was adopted  by a vote of 54 to 48,���a narrow majority it is  true, but like Hardy's in Ontario, it will grow. For the  first time in the history of railway legislation, the C.P.R.  met with defeat. Never had the powerful company greater  assistance. The British Columbia legislature, the boards  of trade of the Coast cities, came under the lash of the  C.P.R. and adopted a policy which sacrificed the interests  of the province to the demands of the C.P.R. But those  who were interested in the success of the Corbin charter  had right on their side. They kept up a ceaseless campaign  until, the vote was taken. Mr. Bodwell, of Victoria, is an  indefatigable worker. Small in stature, but possessing a  brilliant intellect and an indomitable will, he kept up the  fight against every obstacle. But to Hon. A. G. Blair,  Minister of Railways, must be g-iven the greatest credit for  the favorable vote in the committee. He made two powerful  speeches in favor of the bill, and his great influence was  directed towards securing its passage.  Tuesday's debate on the measure was exciting and interesting. Mr. Bostock supported the bill in a short, business-^  like speech. Mr. Bostock is a worker, not a brilliant platform speaker, but he always indulges in good commonsense  and is listened to with attention by members of both sides  of the house. He resented Mr. Mclnnes' sneering allusions  to the American fake boom towns, and gave the committee  information concerning the growth of the towns in Boundary Creek district. He belittled the action of the British  Columbia legislature, which no longer represented public  opinion.  Rev. George R. Maxwell replied. He was not at home as  a champion of the C.P.R. Trained in the seclusion of the  Presbyterian chtirch, his conscience does not follow him in  his lightning changes from a people's champion to a special  pleader for a railway corporation. The reverend member  made some breaks that caused the members to shriek with  laughter. Mr. Maxwell went on to justify the action of the  B.C. government whom he introduced to the committee as  the "government of the C.P.R." The members roared  with laughter. Maxwell attempted to recover himself, but  the members said " that's right," "don't spoil it." " a good  name for the Turner government,"���" you hit the mark,"  and so on. Again, he urged the committee to support the  C.P.R. which contains the money of the people of Canada,  and the members again roared. Rufus Pope. M.P., then  began to cross-examine Mr. Maxwell and told him he had  no right to mislead the committee.  Mr. Blair said that it was a novel and startling proposition to say that a charter should not be granted to a railway because it was proposed to make a connection with  railways across the boundary. To adopt such a principle  would be to reverse the policy which had been pursued by  all Canadian governments. He was not going- to grant or  refuse a charter to yield to the desire of either of the two  great railway corporations of this country. He believed  the people and parliament of Canada were independent of  the railways, and their interests must not ' be. allowed, to  wei����*h against the  interests   of   the   country.    He  believed  that something could be done  by   the  regulation  of rates,  but he did not believe that as much could  be  done  in that  way as by active competition between the two great  carrying companies, the Grand Trunk and C.P.R.    He said that  he would have very little faith in the future of  his  country  if he 'thought'that the building of the Kettle  River  Valley  road was going to enable the people of the United States to  ^capture, the trade of Boundary Creek.     He declared himself  to be entirely opposed to the shipment  of  Canadian ores to  Northport, and in sympathy with any legislation   to  secure  to Canadians the smelting of their own ores,   but  this  was  no reason for refusing to grant a charier, to this  road.    He  declared that when parliament and people demanded such a  measure he would favor the imposition of an export duty on  ore.    The desired end might be attained more simply by inserting in the bill a clause giving  the  Gbvernor-in-Council  power to make such regulations in regard to the carriage of  ores, if they could be smelted in   Canada  to  advantage, as  would practically enable the government to prevent the exportation of ores.  Mr. J. Ross Robertson, the independent member forlDast  Toronto, ''broke epigrams," in the words of Nicholas Flood  Davin, the prairie poet. A westerner would say that he hit  the C.P.R. with a sledge-hammer.!" " I am not prepared to  sit at the feet of Sir William Van Horne and learn patriotism," was his first shot. As Sir William, who is an expatriated American, waved the old flag at a previous meeting-,  the shot told. "I do not want to put any railway autocrat  in the position of controlling inter-provincial trade," continued Mr. Robertson. "A man who was willing to spend  his own money in building a railway ought to be eiicour-  ag.ed. As far as myr observations go, we have not been  overburdened with people of that class. It was all very  well for Mr. Shaug-hnessy to maj' promises for the C.P.R.f  but C.P.R. promises shy when asked to materialize and  their written promises are none to good. Talk about regulating the C.P.R. ! The proceedings on,this bill show me  that we have to hustle to keep the C.P.R. from regulating  us." Several other members spoke, and the committee adjourned until Thursday. ,  ft '      ���  Marci4 31st.���To-day's meeting of the railway committee decided the fate of the Kettle  River  Railway   bill.    At  the beginning the meeting looked anything-  but favorable  to the measure.    It was called at 10.30 a.m., an   early   hour  for the denizens of Parliament Hill.    The  attendance  was  slim, and W. W. B. Mclnnes,   who  is   alwaj^s  ready   when  small politics comes his way, shouted for  a   vote ;   but  big  " Jim Lister," one of the brightest and brainiest  and  best-  hearted members of the house,   told  the  young-   " Mac " to  contain his soul���; that he would get an opportunity   to   vote  against the interests  of  his  province  quickly  enough.    A  half-hour's work on the part  of  the  promoters  of  the  bill  filled   the   railwa3r   committee   room,    and   things   looked  brighter for Boundary Creek.    Mr. JUister's speech  in  support of the measure was an able one.    He was succeeded by  Mr. Bertram of Toronto, in opposition,   and then Hon. Geo.  E. Foster, one of the best speakers in the house, made a bitterly sarcastic  speech 'against the  position, taken   by   the  Minister of  Railways.    Mr.   Foster   made  friends  for  the  measure.    He did not convert   conservatives   who   intended  to vote for the measure, and  he  drove  liberals   to  support  the position taken by Hon. Mr. Blair.  The excitement reached fever heat  while   the   vote   was  being   taken.    The   names   of   the   members  are   called   in.'  alphabetical order, and at first it   looked   as   if   the   C.P.R.  were g*oing- to win, but towards the last the " yeas " came in THE   BOUNDARY   CREEK   TIMES,  Tttraw~i!:w**9-*riMiTBz,'iiM&mfiMi  m��fj-,l^rj^m^fum^vmM��irm%*mmmmm9t^mi^mfximi<Flvmu^iW'r^f^jf,  thick and fast and the result was as  already stated, 54 to 48. At once a  shout of victory'.'..was heard and the  members rejoiced that at last the  C.P.R. had been defeated and that the  parliament of Canada had rid itself of  the railway company's shackles.  The clauses of the bill were then considered rapidly. Hon. Mr. Blair had  inserted a clause giving the government power to regulate the carrying of  ores out of the country. The road is  to be a standard gauge ; 15 per cent, to  be constructed this year and the whole  completed within two years.  The bill was reported to the house  where the fight was renewed, but the  vote there was 50 to 30.  REDISTRIBUTION.  The Victoria Times has published a  table showing how the province could  fairlv be subdivided without increas-  iti'g the membership. The Times has  based its calculations upon the voters'  lists and also the applications already  filed and finds a total of 29,510 voters  in the province. Giving the cities a  standard of 1,500 for each member and  the rural constituencies 700, trie follow-:  ing   apportionment   has   been   made:  Cities Voters  Victoria.     ......6,054  Vancouver.. ..4,030  ....1,505  .. .1,048  .. ..1,500  .:..3,242  ....3,772  New Westminster........

Take Yale for instance. It  will be seen that it is given four members in the above table. Now it would  not be a difficult matter to leave North  and West Yale districts as they are  and divide Bast Yale in two at Penticton. This would make four .'single  constituencies of about equal voting-  power. Of course the district south of  Penticton would have upwards of 700  voters but the result would be as nearly-  equitable as is possible under the  peculiar geographical difficulties that  present themselves in subdividing- the  province.  This would be eminently fair redistribution. It also possesses the element of common 'sense. One can  scarcelv believe that the trovernment  will gerrymander the district by joining a portion with Trail. The result  would be a district composed of two  important sections separated from each  other by an almost impassable rang-e  of mountains ; having' nothing in common and no interchange with each other  Indeed one portion cannot be reached  from the other without going into a  foreign countrv.

The regular meeting of the city  council was held in the court-house on  Monday evening last. Mayor Wood  presided and', all the aldermen were  present.  Communications received from firms  asking to be allowed to tender for  water pipe, were received and filed.  Aid. Galloway reported that he had  seen Mr. Tye, the C.P.R. Co.'s engineer, with reference to the location of  the line in the city. Mr. Tye stated  that the present line was only temporary and that shortl}7 its permanent line  would be run across the creek if at all  practicable. The C.P.R. were anxious  to do everything- to help Greenwood,  not-to huri it.  Considerable discussion was indulged  in with reference to the altering of the  street grade on Government street. It  was decided by the council to cut the  street at Rendell & Co.'s store to 11 feet  instead of 9 feet.  The fire protection by-law was considered in committee and then referred  back to a special committee for amendment.  The streets committee were requested  to keep sidewalks in temporary repair.  The city clerk explained what he had  done while in the Fast to  arrange   for  the sale of the city's debentures.    The  clerk was   thanked, for   his   efforts   in  that respect-and the   council   then   adjourned.   J. C. Campbell, of Vernon, paid  Greenwood a visit this week.  GRAND  SCENERY. LOW   RATES.

The  government  has   placed all the  provincial police officers under the control   of  Inspectors.    The Inspector for  Yale and Kootenay is R. F. Mountain-  He arrived in   Greenwood  from  Rossland on Tuesday and left for  Midway  and other points West.    While some of  the provincial police officers   should be  under   the   control   of   an inspector it  strikes us forcibly that too much money  is being spent in the payment of officials  whose  duty it is to   take   care   of  other  officials  who ought to be able to  take care of themselves.    If provincial  police officers were  appointed  without  reference to social position  " at ,'onie "  or political pull   in   British   Columbia,  the     necessity   for    police   inspectors  would  be   obviated.    The    provincial  officers in this district are sensible fellows that have always performed their  duties   well and  we  think  the public  would   take   chances  on them-without  the   additional protection of a  provincial inspector.  Iii this connection it may be men-  tibned that the government have been  considering trie adyisability of placing  the police of cities under provincial  control. It will be remembered that  the late Chief Justice when premier of  the province attempted to do something*  similar previous to the last general  election but there was such a howl of  indignation that the measure was withdrawn.  The intention of the government is  to' force provincial officers upon the  small interior, cities and then make the  cities pay the bigger share of the salaries. It mig*ht be a good scheme for  the government but we do not think  that the people of those cities desire to  be under the espionage of. provincial  officers and consequently we do not  think the scheme will be carried into  effect.  AMENDMENTS   TO   MINING   LAWS.  The mining* committee of the provincial legislature has reported some important amendments to the present  mining act. Among the amendments  suggested is one which if passed by the  house will prevent aliens holding mineral claims in the province. A similar  amendment was introduced by Mr.  Braden 'in the house last year and it  was defeated by only a small majority.  In all probability the one introduced  by the''mining- committee will meet the  same fate. Below are the important  amendments reported b3r the committee :  E}very person over, but not under, 18  years of ag*e, and every company, shall  be entitled to all the rights and privileges of a free miner and shall be considered a free miner upon taking out a  free miner's certificate ; provided, that  no alien shall be permitted to record a  mineral claim unless he has previously  and in accordance with the provisions  of the act reg*ttlating the same, declared  his intention to become a British subject, and no crown g-rant shall be issued upon any mineral claim recorded  after the passage of this act, to any  other person than a British subject.  A   minor  who  shall  become   a  free  miner shall, as regards his mining* pro-   j  pert}' and liabilities contracted in con  nection therewith, be treated as of full  age.'- ���;  A free miner's certificate issued to a  joint stock company shall be issued in  its corporate name. A free miner's  certificate shall not be transferable.  Another amendment deals with fractional claims, remedying the omission  in the present act to deal with irregular-shaped  fractions.     It  is   provided  that:  Such fractional mineral claims need  not be in rectangular form, and none  of the angles need necessarily be l'ight  angles nor the lines be meridian, and  the lines of the previously located mineral claims (whether surveyed or not)  between which the fractional mineral  claim is located may be adopted as the  boundary of the fractional claim.  The distinction between a fractional  and a full sized mineral claim is made  by always prefixing the words '"full  sized," or *' fractional," to the word  claim. The provincial land surveyor,  when surveying a fractional mineral  claim, whether located before or after  the passage of this act, may survey  such claim so that it shall contain as  nearly as possible, all the unoccupied  ground lying between the previously,  located mineral claim, as' described in  the affidavit and by the sketch plan  made by the locator when the claim  was recorded, provided that no side of  a fractional mineral claim shall exceed  1500 feet in length.  Provisions are being made by which  a free mirier, if he has finished his  assessment work within the year, may  have 30 days more in which to obtain  and record his certificate on payment  of $10 additional fee.  It is proposed to allow a miner to do  several years assessment work in one.  .In getting a crown grant, too, the  miner is allowed credit for the assessment work done, the amount of such  assessment being deducted from the  $500 necessary to secure a crown grant.  In making an application for a crown  grant the applicant, it is proposed,  shall file the copies of the British Columbia Gazette and newspaper containing the notices of his application.  Another amendment is that an adverse claimant must file a plan made  by a provincial laud surveyor showing  the claim. Instead of as at present,  allowing credit to be given for the survey as work on the claim only when  siicB Slirvey is made within one year of  the record, an amendment proposes  that two years be inserted instead of  one.  Going to Klondyke.  Dr. Christie, Dominion Veterinary  Surgeon for the district, returned on  Thursda}* from Osoyoos. He reports  that in consequence of the efforts made  by Spokane people to boom the oVer-  land route the travel by Oso3roos is increasing* daily. During his visit there  he examined 35 head of hores all going*  to the Yukon. The horses belonged to  three different parties. He found them  all free from infectious disease.  Dr. Christie also received word from  G. C. Rose, collector of customs at Cascade, that several prospectors with  horses had passed there and that the  majority of them were   bound for   the  Peace river country. The doctor is  likely to-be kept busy for the next few  months as his district is a very large  one. His appointment will facilitate  the bringing of horses into this country  and no one now will be subjected to  vexatious delays because of horses not  being examined.  Another Yukon party left Spokane  on Thursday. It is under the leadership of W. T. Wren and has 60 or 75  horses. They will cross into Canada  at Osoyoos.  Hotel Arrivals.

Trnimmimrwiw  BSPM :."l* ���JU^a^yy^"*7"y*'-tynf Mffli  FOR   CASH   ONLY.  During the past few months the  Boundary Creek Printing & Publishing Co. has received numerous orders  for job work. The business of the  company in this respect has increased  fully 50 per cent, since January, 1898.  As the majority of the patrons neglected to pay cash for the work done,  the result has been largely increased  outstanding accounts. The increased  business necessitated heavy purchases  of stationery and consequent heavy  freight charges. Under the circumstances it is unfair to the Boundary  Creek P; & P. Co. to ask them to carry  those who neglect to pay for job work.  The company cannot afford to do it.  In the future, job work will be done at  the lowest possible cash prices. No  credit will be given. Every order must  be C. O. D. The company trusts that  this explanation will prove satisfactory  to those who have,been accustomed to  securing credit in the past.  B. C. P. & P. Co., Etd.  COLUMBIA   &   WESTERN.  An Ottawa  dispatch   states   that  in  the   railway  committee   Mr.   Bostock  introduced a bill to enable the  Columbia   &  Western railway  Co. to   lease  their line from Robson southwestward  through  the  Boundary Creek country  to the C. P. R.    This will be a continuance of   the   Columbia   &   Kootenay,  which connects  with  the Crow's  Nest  railway.at,Nelson.    The hew line  will  commence   at   Robson,   following the  Columbia   river   for a   distance,   then  strike across country to Christina lake,  toGrand  Forks,   to  Midway* through  the Boundary creek country to Pent ic~  ton, a distance   altogether of about 200  miles.    This is the road that is permitted as the rival of Mr. Corbin's  Kettle  River Valley  Railway.    Mr.   Mclnnes  opposed the application for the charter  and  he   said   that   the   C.   P. R. had  acquired the Columbia & Western charter   which carried a   subsidy   of  20,000  acres a  mile,   but they could build the  road under the British Columbia Southern charter, which covered  practically  the same ground.    The granting of the  leasing power asked would enable them  to acquire the enormous land subsidy  of the Columbia & Western Railway  Co., earning it by the construction of  the road. They should build the road  under the British Columbia charter.  Judge Clark said that the object of the  power sought was to enable the Columbia & Western to raise the necessary  money for the work by reason of the  C. P. R. guaranteeing the rental. The  bill was reported.  The committee reported a bill to confirm the lease of the British Columbia  Southern to the C. P. R., and to make  it clear that they have an option to  purchase.   ���         __'  A   Serious   Accident.  John Huff, a son of H. H Huff, met  with a serious accident on Wednesday  niarht. He fell from the loft in Com-  .stock's livery stable to the ground  floor. He was picked up unconscious  and conveyed to the Greenwood hospital. Dr. Foster who attended the lad  found that the skull was injured.  Boundary  Valley   Lodge,  No. 3 8, I.O.O.F.

The British Columbia Board of Trade  is an institution which enjoys- a name  that sounds important. It is a "Victoria  organization, but it presumes to regulate the affairs of all portions of the  province; it occasionally undertakes  to tell the federal government how the  affairs of this country ought to be conducted ;,' in a word it is an august body  that entertains with plenty of Barmecide feasts���all show and no substance.  To this org-anization belong, some of  the most enterprising-business men of  Victoria���men who do not expect to secure business   by   acts   of parliament,  but  by  their  own   exertions.     Unfortunately these   men   do   not  dominate  the proceedings of the board of. trade ;  they   are   too   busy   with    their    own  affairs to take much part  in  its  deliberations.    They, must, assume   responsibility for its acts.   If the enterprising  wholesale men of Victoria find that the  people of Boundary  Creek  will  resent  the   unwarranted,   impertinent .action  ���of their bo?a-d of trade with  respect to  the Corbin  charter,   they   have  themselves to blame.    If the Victoria board  of trade allows, itself to be run  by narrow minded fossils,   its   members   can-  not get rid of the responsibility.    Unless they want  the   board   of  trade  to  continue doing harm   and   stirring* up  the bitterest feelings  against-the city  of Victoria,   its   members . should ' take  more   interest   in   its   affairs   and   not  allow    an    institution   supposedly   important to be the tool of   the   fools and  'knaves���the men who   think   they   are  regulating-the affairs of   the   country,  and the men who  use it for  their   own  purposes.    There are too   many wholesale business men in Victoria   who are.  worthy of better treatment than to become the victims of .their own board of  trade.   CITY.   IMPROVEMENTS.  It is of the utmost importance that  trie permanent improvements about to  be carried   out   in   the   city   should   be  such that  those  who   for   the  next  20  years will be  paying*   cit}r   debentures  will derive a  benefit  therefrom.    The  work should be free from  engineering  mistakes and scamping- by contractors.  The first essential is   a  competent  engineer, untrammelled by the   opinions  of members of. the municipal   council.  The council does not employ an engineer to simpl\r oversee the   work  which  it thinks ought to be done *. the   engineer should be  free   to   say   what  work  should be done and   how   it /should   be  done.    It the council has confidence in  the   city    engineer,   on    his   shoulders  should be placed all the   responsibility  for   engineering   work.      We   believe  that Mr. Shaw is one   of   the   best   engineers  that  can   be   secured ; indeed  Greenwood is to be congratulated upon  having secured the services of   a  man  of his  experience   and   ability.    He is  paid to see that there are   no   mistakes  made in the work about   to   be   carried  out.      The   council   should   make  him  responsible   for   the   work    and  then  leave  him  alone.     His  responsibility  ceases if he simply carries out  the  requests of the council and does  not  follow his own professional   opinions.    If  mistakes are to be avoided, if the  possibility of   innumerable   complications  with ratepayers is  to  be removed, the  engineer   must  be  given   full   control  over the technical part of the civic improvements.    We believe the members  of the city  council   are  endowed  with  sufficient common sense  to  appreciate'  the fact  that Mr.   Shaw  knows  more  about engineering  than   they   do   and  they will not interfere with his plans ;  but we know   of  instances  where   important public work's   were  ruined  because city fathers  considered  that the  marl whom they employed did not know  as much about engineering as they did.  OPPOSITION   CONVENTION.  At the latest the provincial general  elections will be held by , the first of  July. The probability is that they  will be held earlier. Two months is a  short time to perfect an Organization,  call a committee, nominate a candidate, and carry on an aggressive campaign. It is surely time for the people  who take an interest in the affairs of  the province to do something. The  names of several gentlemen have been  mentioned as candidates for this district. We think that no one should be  considered ��� a candidate until he receives the nomination from a representative convention. No one anxious  to be a candidate should receive any  encouragement'unless he receives such  a nomination. But if a convention is  delayed too long* it-is just possible that  some one representing* no one but his  own interests and ambition will announce himself as a candidate and  weaken the chances of the reg-ular.  nominee. Delays are-'more dang*erpus  in .polities than in any other sphere.  H.   HALLETT,  NOTARY    PUBLIC.  GREENWOOD,   B.O.  'ORBES   M.   KERBY,  Assoc. Mem. Can. Soc.

The Greenwood City Mercantile Co. has been appointed agents  for the 0 KAN AG AN FLOUR MILL / �����.'8 FLOUR. It is the best all-round  Flour on the market. Try it once and you will use no other.

Now that the railway fig-ht is practically over, Boundary Creek district has  friends to reward and enemies to punish. Among the latter must be classed  the government of this province. The  course it pursued with reference to the  Corbin charter was so outrageously  unfair to this district that every elector  possessing any independence will  surely resent it. When the struggle  with the C.P.R. was the most desperate  the provincial government, by choking  discussion and by using the party lash,  succeeded in passing a resolution that  nearl)' resulted in giving" the victory  to the C.P.R. Were it not for the fact-  that the Turner government is utterly  discredited in the East ; that it is  known there that it does not represent  the people of British Columbia but exists because of the existence of numerous pocket bbrou-ghs,--the resolution  would have carried out the intentions  of the C.P.R.  The Turner government has  no con  science. It flirted with every charter-  monger and subsidy-seeker for the past  three years, and when an honest, railway builder wishes to build a railway  into Boundary Creek district, it is  willing . to ��� sacrifice Boundary Creek  that it may secure the influence of the  C.P.R. It never introduced any Boundary Creek railway legislation that did  not bear the ear-marks of private advantage rather than public interest,  and by the passage of the Helmcken  resolution it conclusively showed that  it cared .nothing- for the interests of  Boundary Creek district, that all its  legislation was directed towards feeding adventurers at the expense of the  public.  The record of the Turner government  isalike discreditable to itself and to  the province. The paper-back premier  and the pompous Dunsmuirian president have endang-ered the credit of the  province by becoming decoy ducks for  English speculators ; the military provincial secretary has always been an  associate   of   land-grabbers   and   sub  sidy-hunters ; the attorney-general is  too lazy to do any good or anything  very bad ; and the chief commissioner  of lands and works is simply a mediocre  kept in office to reflect the brillia.nc3r  of the other ministers. It could be bnl)r  such a government that would attempt  to secure the aid of a powerful railway-"  corporation by .bringing" a promising  district under the bondage of the  C.P.R. Evidently the government  have decided that they cannot expect  any consideration from the people of  Boundary Creek, for according to reports there is a movement' on foot to  disfranchise them by tacking the district to Trail. Should the government  attempt anything of the kind it will  find, that any candidate it may bring"  forward will be swamped b}' the 800  indignant electors who reside north of  the International boundary in southern Yale.  The No. 9, in Deadwood camp, is  showing up well. Development work-  on the property is being carried on by  Harry Morgan. THE   BOUNDARY   CREEK   TIMES,  KETTLE  RIVER  MINING   DIVISION.

The reg-ular meeting", of the Bounds  ary Creek Mining* & Commercial Association was held in Rendell & Co's,  hall on Monday' evening last. In the  absence of President Hardy, Vice-  president Ross occupied the chair.  Mr. Ross gave the association an  account of the fight in Ottawa for the  Corbin charter. -He pointed put the  benefits that were likely to accrue to  Boundary Creek district because the  agitation has extensively advertised  the district and had prodded the C. P.  R. into beginning active construction  at an early date.  A hearty vote of thanks was tendered  Mr. Ross, for his services in Ottawa,  and Messrs. A. S. Black and D. C. McRae were appointed a committee to  assist the secretary in drafting votes  of thanks to Hon. Mr. Blair, Mr.  Bostock, M. P., and Mr. Graham, M.  P. Pi,, for their efforts in the interests  of Boundary Creek district in connection with the struggle for the Corbin  charter.    '-:'.,'���.  Several members in the strongest  terms denounced the action of the  Turner government in endorsing and  supporting the Helmcken anti-Corbin  resolution. The reported subdivision  of Boundary Creek district was also  discussed briefly. The tacking of  Boundary Creek district to Trail was  considered such a ridiculously absurd  proposition,, that it was felt that the  Turner government even, would not  attempt such outrage upon a large  body of electors.  Messrs. A. S. Thomas and Keith  were elected members of the association. The secretary reported that the  finances of the association were in a  healthy condition.  The association then adjourned.  Sunday   Services.  Rev. Father Palmer of New Westminster will conduct Roman Catholic  services in Rendell & Co's. hall on Sunday next.

While the city scavenger denies hauling refuse along the Deadwood road,  the road itself bears strongly unpleasant testimony to the fact that it has  been a dumping ground for refuse from  the city. The provincial police ought  to inquire into the matter, as there are  several properties being developed in  Deadwood camp and it is anything but  pleasant for people to use the road under present conditions.  Some choice house plants are for sale  at H. B. Munroe's, Government street.  The Senate has adjourned until the  20th of April, consequently no railway  news need be expected for at least a  week.

Boundary Creek district will 'shortly  be the scene of a desperate struggle between two rival and powerful railway"  companies, each anxious to secure the  first foothold in the district. The Canadian Pacific Railway Company' and  Mr. Corbin were pitted ag-ainst each  other in Ottawa, and Mr. Corbin won.  But the C.P.R. is an organization-,  which has at its head men who never v  know defeat, and when imsuccessf ul at  one point they can turn in another direction with the greatest agility. The  C.P.R. has now determined to defeat  " Mr. Corbin's. intentions by building- a  road into Boundary Creek district before he does. The C.P.R. may succeed  in doing so. If it does, it will have to  push construction more rapidly than it  ever did before, for Mr. Corbin demonstrated his ability to build railways by  constructing* the Nelson & Fort Shep-  pard during the panic of 1893.  Mr. Shaug-hnessy, the enterprising  vice-president of the C.P.R., stated recently   in   Montreal   "that   thev  had  **        ., ������'....  played second fiddle to Corbin in the  "Kootenay country, arid they-'���.. would be  d���-d before they would do so in Boundary Creek." Evidently the C.P.R.  have no intention of being d--d, because during the past week7 its engineers and contractors made hurried,  visits to Greenwood, and there was a  decidedly active air about them all.  Among* the first to arrive was Mr..  John Ross, of Toronto.- Mr. Ross is  no stranger to railway work. He was  associated with Mr. Dan Mann in rail-  way contracts on the C.P.R. and is one  of the best known contractors in Canada to-da3r. Mr. Ross reached Greenwood from Penticton on Friday last.  He was accompanied by Mr. Strachan,  a railway engineer, who went up to  Pass creek on Sunday and hurriedly  examined the route of the proposed  railway in the vicinity. Mr. Ross had  but HI tie to say for publication, but he  was strongly of the opinion that in a  short time active railway construction  will begin, both at Penticton and Robson. Mr. Ross and Mr. Strachan went  out bv Mctrcus on Mondav morning-.  Mr. Ross expects to return to Greenwood before June 1st.  On Monday, W. F. Tye, the C.P.R.'s  chief engineer in the district, J. ID. Boss  of Spokane, McKenzie & Marin's mining associate, and Mr. Dumphe}*, Mc-  Kenzie & Mann's foreman, came in by  a private rig from. Marcus. Mr. Tye  was as reticent about publicly stating  his business as Mr. Ross, but it was  learned that he had received instructions from headquarters to push the  survey work as rapidly as possible. He  remained here but a short time and returned "to Rossland. The party discussed railway business with Mr. Ross  at Grand Forks.  The railway situation, as far as the  C.P.R. is concerned, is one of haste.  The big compan3r has become aroused  to the importance of securing control  of the Boundary Creek trade. The  provincial government is pledg*ed to  give the V., V. & F- Co. a cash subsid3*  of $4,000 a mile from Penticton to Rob  son . Messrs. McKenzie & Mann, who  ���have, control id: the V. V. & E. charter,  are working* with the C.P.R. The}'  will secure the contract to build the  road from Penticton to Robson. The  road will be built for the C.P.R. under,  the V. V. & IV charter. McKenzie &  Mann will secure a big railway contract, the C.P.R. will get a cash sub-  sidj* which they did not expect, and  evei*3rbody will be happy'. Within 30  dayrs work will begin at Robson,, Cascade City, Greenwood and Penticton.  All the men that can be secured will  be put to work and the road will be  completed b}r November 1st. The  above is the gist of what is stated on  g*ood authority to be the C.P.R.'s programme.  In the meantime Mr. Corbin has decided, charter or no charter, to tap the  Boundary Creek country. If the senate throws out his bill, he will go in  from Kettle Falls, cross over to the  San Foil river, get into Eureka camp,  from Curlew creek to the International  boundary line near ������ Midway. If the  charter is granted he will of course  build along the route indicated in   the  bill. ��� '���['"'"���":   "'' ���'"   ��� .' ������.������'  The people of Boundary Creek can  enjoy the fight, for it will bring* a large  measure of prosperity, the natural result of the development of the great  mineral resources of the district. The  fight at Ottawa has advertised Boundary Creek district more than any portion of the Dominion except the Yukon  and it has prodded railway companies  into action.  New Hotel Buildings.  J. W. Nelson, of the Pioneer hotel,  has awarded the contract to R. F.  Coates for the erection of an addition  to "the hotel. The building will be  erected on the lot adjoining the Pioneer, and the work will be pushed so  as to afford hotel room for the large  number of people who are coming* into  the district.  The proprietors of the Windsor have  also decided to build a three-storey  hotel on the ground now occupied by  the present hotel. Mr. Glaze has the  contract of removing* the Windsor to  the rear of the lot, to make way for the  new building*. Other contracts have  been awarded for the erection of building's. It is expected that during* the  next few months carpenters will have  plenty of work to engage their attention  Will Open in Greenwood.  W. Martin, of Rossland, was among*  the visitors to Greenwood this week.  Mr. Martin is a member of the well-  known firm of Martin Bros., hardware  merchants. They intend opening- a  branch hardware store in Greenwood,  and Mr. Martin endeavored to secure a  suitable business lot here. He returned  to Rossland on Wednesday.  The Pathfinder has been sold to the  British - America Corporation. The  price paid is said to be. $75,000 cash.  The Pathfinder is located on the North  Fork of the Kettle river.

The city scavenger desires to deny  the charge in a paragraph which appeared in The Times last week. He  states that he hauled no garbage over  the Deadwood camp road this year arid  consequently cannot be held responsible for the condition of the road as  stated in the paragraph referred to.  The Masons in Greenwood have  secured the necessary authority to  organize a lodge here The upper flat  of Mr. Flood's new block on Copper  street has been leased and will be made  into a masonic hall.

The people Of Boundary Creek are  peculiar^- interested in the position  taken by the Senate with reference to  legislation passed by the House of  Commons. It is quite possible that  the members of the Senate ma3r consider it necessary in the interests of,  the conservative party to throw out  the Kettle River Valley Railway bill,  and the struggle in the railway committee will thereby prove fruitless.  Many persons have rejoiced because of  the action of the senate with respect  to the Yukon bill. The merits and defects of the Yukon measure heed not  be discussed here. If the measure was  ill-conceived���and we don't say it was  ���there is still the important question  of the right of the representatives of  the people to pass legislation that they  consider in the public interest. Responsible government becomes a farce if  legislation is to be dependant upon a  coterie of decrepit old men who have  deteriorated in everything excepting  their bitter partisanship. The government of this country ought to be the  work of the representatives of the people, not the whini of a few feeble and  irritable representatives of a party  that no longer possesses the confidence  of the iiiajorit3' of the people.  The senate no longer considers measures from a standpoint of public interest but from the low plane of party expediency, and consequent^* the Kettle  River Valle3r bill may meet a similar  fate to the Yukon bill. Then the few  who have endorsed the recent action of  the senate and who are also interested  in the passage of the Kettle River  charter will come to the conclusion  that it were better, not to have a senate  at all than to have a senate that throttles measures whose object is to secure  the development of the resources of  this great country.
