Copper Street, Greenwood,  ^?Hmn???mmm????nm?r??mTn??T??mTH???T???nT??????T?H??n??n??H??mn??n?T?n??TTT!?n?rr??T?K  Mr. Paul Johnson is here. He is the  smelting Messiah who is to deliver the  people fronr any disappointment because of the installation of the Graves'  smelter at Grand Forks. Mr. Johnson  means business, and evidently means  to stay. He is armed with half a  dozen trunks and as many valises, a  million dollars' or so, and an enviable  reputation as a ' successful smelter  expert. He is here representing* the  British Colnmbia Copper Company,  Limited, of New York and as an  earnest of his intention to erect a  smelter he brought with him Mr. John  Norborn the mining machinery expert  of the Union Iron Works San Francisco.  Mr. Johnson is the heavy weight  among the experts. He carries around  some 300 odd pounds daily and still remains a genial, jovial gentlemen.  Mr. Johnson was not desirous  of making public the: details'of his  plans, but he stated positively that he  was here to build a large smelter.  Questioned as to the location, Mr. Johnson stated that he would make a  thorough inspection of the district.  When asked regarding a water supply  he laughed. "That does not need to  frighten any one," he said. ''Water  is not a serious consideration with the  latest methods for taking care of the  slag. Any of the smalt streams in this  locality has sufficient water for a big  smelter."*  Mr. Johnson has been in consultation  with Mr. Keffer, of the Mother Lode,'  several times since his arrival. It is  understood that. Mr. Keffer believes  the most convenient and suitable site  for a smelter to treat Mother Lode ore  is up Copper creek, near Scott McRae's  ranch. The company took the precaution to secure a site here some time ago.  When Mr. Johnson has an opportunity  to look over the ground he will be in a  position to give more definite information. He has had a long and successful experience as a smelter expert. He  built the Hall mines smelter at Nelson,  smelters in Mexico and has just completed the erection of a smelter in California for the principals in the British  Columbia "Copper compony. He is a  graduate of the Royal Technical School  and Mining Academy of Stockholm,  Sweden.  Mr. Norborn is here to arrange for  the installation of the plant, which will  be supplied by the Union Iron Works of  San Francisco. This company supplied  the plant for the smelter erected by  Mr. Johnson in California.  MINING   NOTES  This week the committee of the  board of trade sent to Ottawa for  transhipment to the  Paris  exhibition,  THE.  an exhibit of Boundary creek ores..  The shipment includes specimens from  the different camps eand Camp McKinney. The mines represented are  Lexington, Lincoln, City of Paris,  Mother Lode, Morrison, Buckhorn,  Gold Bug, Knob Hill, Ironsides, Brooklyn, Stemwinder, War Eagle, Winnipeg, Golden Crown, Jewel, Enterprise;  Lakeside, King Soloinn, Big Copper,  Summit, B. C, and the following  Camp McKinney properties, Cariboo,  Anchor, Minnehaha, Waterloo, Fonte-  roy and Sailor.  Mr. Michael Shick, the well know  prospector, is in town from the Burnt,,  Basin section. . He reports that there  are 14 feet of quartz on the Topic, a  property which he recently acquired.  The ore from this, near the surface,  runs from $12 to S14 to the. ton in gold  and six ounces in silver. The intention is to put a force of men to work on  this property in the immediate future.  The shaft on the Mother Lode, he says,  is now down 60 feet, and crosscutting  will soon be. commenced. There are  250 tons of high grade ore on the dump  of the Mother Lode and 500 tons in  sight. A force of men is to be put at  .work on the showing of ten feet of copper ore on the Mother Lode.���Rossland  Miner.  James Wilkes, organizer for the  Western Federation of Miners, is in the  city for the purpose of organizing the  miners. He holds a meeting of miners  in Phoenix this (Friday) evening and  a meeting in Greenwood probably tomorrow (Saturday) evening. Mr.  Wilkes has been busy during the past  two months in the Slocan district where  the union ha ve held but for a $3.50 rate  for eight hours. He believes the wage  question will adjust itself in a short  time, but that the eight hour, law has  come to stay.  Gilbert Mahon, managing director of  the Jewell Gold Mining company, returned from Rossland on Wednesday.  On Thursday he and Mr. Norborn went  up to the Jewel. Mr. Norborn examin-'  ing the ground with a view,to selecting  a suitable site for a'cyanide plant.  This does not mean that the plant is to  be installed immediately, but Mr. Norborn was anxious to look over the  ground so thathe would be in a better  position to figure on the plant as soon  as required.  F. H. Oliver, manager of the Morrison Gold Mining company was in the  city this week. He visited the mine  andwas naturally pleased with the big  showing in the face of the tunnel. The  tunnel encountered a large body of ore 0  from which gold values as. high as $33  have been secured.  Jay P. Graves, his son Claude M..  Graves, Jno. P. Whitney and W. B.  Rulon were in the city this week. Mr.  Whitney is vice president of the City  of Paris company, and Mr. Rulon represents Mr. Graves' many interests in  the Quaker City.

The Telegram's circulation is not large in China, and it is  unfair for Dan Foo and Bill Choo to  thus change the venue without the  Telegram's consent. They have no  senate in China to keep these bold men  in check, aud the work of blocking  their projects oyer all the wide stretches  of the Chinese empire is more than  ought to be imposed on any one newspaper.���Toronto Globe.

Reid, lawyer, of New West-  minister, is to oppose Alexander Henderson in his fight for the retention of  his seat which he i.s to contest since  being appointed to the portfolio of attorney-general. It is considered in  New Westminister that Reid has a  stronger following than Munn. A very  hot campaign is being looked for.  Joseph Martin will speak in Reid's behalf.

P, McLeod and Miss McKenzie Married  at Hew Westminister.  Mr. J."P. McLeod, B. A., the well  known barrester, and Miss Kate M.  McKenzie were married in St.Andrew's  church, New Westminister, Friday,  Aug. 10, the officiating clergyman being Rev. Thos. Scouler. Both are weSl  a!nd popularly known throughout the  district. Mr. McI,eod has been practising here for the past two years, making Midway his headquarters. Miss  McKenzie was principal of the Midway  school for some time. They will reside  in Midway.  The Times joins their many friends  in extending hearty congratulations.  The New Westminister Columbian  says regarding the marriage:  The affair was quite devoid of any  ostentatious display, the services of  bridesmaids and groomsmen being dispensed with, and only a few personal  friends being present.  The bride recently retired from a  position on the teaching staff of the  Westminister public school, which profession the groom also adorned at one  time, having been principal of the Victoria high school. Retiring, he"took  up law, finishing his term in the office  of Mr. Aulay Morrison, M. P., this  city, and subsequently commencing  his practice at Midway.  After the ceremony, the newly married couple left for.Vancouver, en route  for Midway, where the bride will also  be welcomed by the many friends whom  she made while mistress of the public  school of that place.

The Imperial hotel which was recently purchased by P. J'. Fihucane,  will be conducted by D. W. Morgan', of  Rossland, after September 1st. Mr.  Morgan has leased the premises and  intends running a first class hoteland  restaurant. His manager will be Max  Karter who ran the Clarendon before  it was burned down. Max is bound to  break the hoodoo which appears to  have associated itself with Mr!1 Morgan's hotel ventures in the 'district,' so  he went to'Victoria' last'week to secure  a mascot in the shape of a wife. The  happy couple "will spend their honeymoon in the coast cities and then come  direct to Greenwood.  Messrs. Graham & Perry have not  yet fully decided to build, but ih all  probability a large brick hotel will be  erected by'them on their property at  the' corner of Copper and Deadwood  streets.

Pringle & Whiteside solicitors for  Miller Bros., notified the council that  they intend taking;action for damages  because of the wrong grade, having  been given for their buildingon Copper  Street. The letter was referred to the  city solicitor.  A. S. Black representing the Greenwood Waterworks company asked for  ah extension of time on account of the  franchise granted to install an electric  light system throughout the city.  Messrs. Campbell &1 McGregor  were present a.nd addiressed; the  council. They pointed out that they  had only just' acquired the character  and the sixty days remaining of the  life of the franchise did not allow  sufficient time to install the plant they  were purchasing*. The question of  granting the extension was deferred  for one week.  The council went info committee to  discuss the requirements of the fire  'department. They decided to purchase  1500 :k it of hose, a hose cart, fire alarm  duty trui'iipet, hose and ladder straps,  18 helmet", ami 18 niackinaws.

W. J. Douglas, Q.;.C, ,a prominent  barrister of Chatam, Ont., is visiting  his son in this city. Mr. Douglas had  rather an exciting trip on the Columbia  & Western railway. He arid several  others rode on,a work-train to the sum-  jmit near Gladstone. From there a  hand-car was used. As it is down  !grade all the way to Cascade, the trip  required no effort on the part of the  ���passengers. Unfortunately, however,  the grade ceased*at the bridge and'the  car stopped in the center thereof. It  was late at night and very dark. On  'account of luggage, if was impossible  to use the handle, so that the passengers disembarked to find that the  bridge timbers were, some of them,  two and three feet apart. Naturally  Mr'. Douglas felt nervous travelling  180 feet above terra firma, but all got  over without accident. Mr. Douglas  visited the province seven years ago.  He sees some wonderful improvements.  He is deeply impressed with the possibilities of Boundary Creek as a mining  country.  The   Spokane   Northern   Extended   Into   The  Boundary Country.  Mr. J. M. Haydeh, manager of the  Spokane Northern' Telegraph company  of this city,; announces authoratively  that his line will be completed to the  Boundary country by the October 15th;  and will touch every town of consequence in that section; including Cascade City, Grand Forks, Columbia,  Curlew, Greenwood and Midway. Mr.  Corbin, ever alive to public interests  and wants, would have built this line  a year ago, had he been aMe to .secure  his" charter, which has"���been hanging  in the house at Ottawa until now. This  is a long felt want and should be appreciated by the people of this country  as it will give them direct communication with these important camps. Mr.  Corbin has great faith in the future of  thin country and he should be congratulated upon the enterprising way  in. which he backs his faith in constrct-  ing this expensive line.  He has secured the corner basement  room of the new Montreal bank building in this city for his quarters, which  is the finest business, location in the  city.���Rossland Miner.

Fighting* Joe.  Joe Martin is'still alive. The News-  Advertiser had the temerity to state  that; Mr. Martin was responsible for  the effort to remove the land registry I  office from New Westminister after the  fire. The reply came in the following  letter to F. C. Cotton:  Vancouver, Aug. 10, 1899.  Hon. F. C. Carter-Cotton, Finance  Minister, Victoria���Dear Sir: Enclosed  I seud you a cutting from the News-  Advertiser of today, headed "Opposition Weak."  I beg to call your attention to the  very improper, false and misleading  statements contained in the latter part  of the same, with reference to the government's action with regard to New  Westminister. I would not trouble you  with this matter were it not for the  fact of your well known connection  with this paper. I leave it to you to  take whatever steps you see fit to contradict the statements made. As you  are well aware, everything that has  been done with regard to New Westminister has been done by the government as a whole, and it seems to me  a very pitiable  the News-Advertiser to gain some support for the government candidate at  the coming election by making statements containing inuendos against me  and praises for Mr. Semlin and yourself, which are absolutely without any  foundation whatever. Yours truly,  Josbph Martin.  QREEMWmOD   is   the   financial  and commercial centre of the Boundary Creek district.

Situation���What  He Advocates'.  Mr. Buchanan said: In the early part  of the winter of 1898, the. subject of the  necessity of doing* something* to relieve  the difficulties under which  the silver-  lead industry of Kootenay was laboring* came'.before the Kaslo  board of  trade, and I was.appointed upon a committee formed  to investig-ate, and re?  port .upon  the  subject..   The Ding-ley  tariff had come into operation on the  1st of July, 1897.. Prior- to that, under  ���  the Wilson tariff,1 we1"had entry for our  ores into; the '��� United. States markets,  upon' the payment of a duty of $15 per  ton or % cent per pound upon.the lead  contents  of the  orej 'and we also had  entry into that market for lead in bullion at; the rate of  1-cent per pound.  The Pilot Bay smelter had closed down  before the Ding-ley tariff wasadopted,  and   before there was any  certainty  that it would be adopted.  The Ding-ley  tariff added $1 per ton to the duty upon  ore making the duty  one  and a half  cents   per'pound.    This   immediately  closed a great many of our mines.    To  a greater or less extent, lead has been  -produced in British  Columbia  for the  past 11 years.    The number  of silver-  lead   claims i that, have 'been recorded  must amount to many thousands.    Out  of  these,   hundreds  have undoubtedly  good showings, and have, in fact, been  developed to the extent that they   have  been  made  shipping-   properties.    But  how many of thes<} properties have existed and persisted  up to the present  time?   Out of these hundreds of claims  comparatively few closed down for the  want of ore,   and yet very few exist  now as shipping- mines. This, of course  indicates that there was some difficulty  in   their way.    They   would  not  pay,  and they had to close down on that account.    The  majority  of  these mines  are closed down on a question of a few  dollars  per  ton,   and a few dollars additional  value  per ton would set them  working-  again.    The   Kaslo   board of  trade considered that the creation  of a  home market in Canada would in some  measure alleviate the difficulty. Finally  the duty devolved upon   myself, of going to Ottawa, which I  did in the winter of 1898.   With others, I interviewed  committees of ministers, and ministers  individually, also the   various  departments, in fact, all who had an interest,  direct   or   indirect   in   this  particular  question.    They were loth to make any  promises,  and we were at leng-th   informed by Mr. Patterson,commissioner  of customs, that it was the intention to  immediately begin preliminary negotiations  with   the  United  States, in regard to a treaty covering  all points in  dispute  between the countries, and   in  connection   with   this, it was proposed  to arrange for a measure of reciprocal  trade.    We were informed  that the administration   were  unwilling, pending-  the result of these neg-otiations, to take  any  steps to  amend the tariff on lead  productions.    There  were numbers of  mineowners in Ottawa at the time, and  we came to the conclusion   that  if  under reciprocal arrangements, the duties  on   lead  going- into  the United States  could be taken off, it would answer the  purpose,   and   the   American   market  would- undoubtedly be the  best market  we could hope to find.     There are only  two   lead   markets���one   the   United  States'and the other  the  world.'   London prices prevail in all   countries outside   of the   United  States,  that have  free trade relations with Great Britain.  We   presented   our   memorials  to the  Canadian commissioners,   asking  that  they   would   endeavor  to  obtain   such  terms as1 would make lead in   all forms  free, as between the two countries, and  particularly lead bullion and lead ores.  Mr. J. B. McArthur went east last summer, and we appointed him as  our  representative, and with our requests, he  appeared before the conference in Quebec, and in his report,   made to us, he  assured  us'  thaat   the  commissioners  would use every effort to comply  with  bur  wishes,   and it  was   believed that  they  would   secure,   not only free  admission   of  ores,   but also free admission of bullion. You are told that these  are concessions that will   never be obtained.    They will be opposed  by  the  lead mining interests on the other side,  they will be opposed by ; the lead trust,  and-we fully'agree  with   that.,   There  will  probably be   opposition  on   both  sides of the line  against  any  proposal  for reciprocity.   However,  as  you all'  know,   a   very great deal of progress  was made by the commissioners at the  conference, and'a scheme of reciprocity  was   actually  arranged.    We were not  asking*  the  Americans for something,  with   nothing-  to give.    We knew that  to obtain : favors, weymustsgive favors;  Sir  Richard Cartwright and Sir I^ouis  Davies, who no doubt shaped the policy  of the  Canadian   commissioners,   are  men who have been trying* to  g-et reciprocity for the  last  30  years.    It was  only   at   our earnest  solicitation that  lead ores were put upon the list  at all.  It.was liberal on the part of the  commissioners to take the  stand they-did,-  in deference to our wishes.    Up to the  last moment of the session of the conference, on their adjournment last winter, the matter stood  in   this  position,  that   the   commissioners    had   pretty  nearly come to the  conclusion   that  it  was hopeless to apply  for  free admission  of  lead  bullion or manufactured j  lead,    but   they  still  maintained that,'  position, as shown in a letter from Mr.  Charlton, dated from  Washington; on  the 14th of January; and a telegram to  the   Kaslo   board'':'������ of. trade from Mr.  Bostock.    A   memorial   had   been ob-  tainedfrorii the shippers  of  lead  ores  in  the   Slocan  camp, from Ainsworth  and Kaslo,. and the  resolution of the  Kaslo board of trade has been obtained  and Mr. Bostock himself had copies  of  them, and so we replied to him infthis  way:    "This   matter   was. fully   considered in June last, miners unanimous7  that free ores should be considered, if  free bullion cannot be obtained.''..,  This is how matters stood at the adjournment of the conference. The  Toronto Telegram congratulated the  Kaslo board of trade on being the one  bod}' that was going to get what it  asked for.   . ..-'���', -  There is now no data fixed for the resumption of the conference. However.  we feel that a proper authoritative expression of opinion from this convention will carry more weig-ht than any  other,kind of memorial that could be  placed before the commissioners.  . The greatest amount of lead ever produced in one year in Canada was some  19,200 tons, in 1897, and during part of  that year the mines had the benefit of  the Wilson tariff. Last year, althoug-h  a good one in may respects showed a  considerable fall. In British Columbia  we produced about 34,000 tons of ore.  We are told that this could be disposed  of at home, without reference to the  American market. The Canadian  market for lead in all forms, will  amount to about 12,000 tons per annum.  By far the greatest proportion of this  will be in the form of paint. j  ���About three of the hig*h grade mines  in the Slocan can continue to. work at  the present time, and they can pay any  charges that can lie imagined. All the  other mines are engag-ed at the present  time in development work. It is desirable that this state of things should  continue? Shall our production be  restricted for all time to 19,000 or 20,-  000 tons of lead, as a maximum, or is  it desirable that we should make every  possible effort to open up about 200 lead  mines in British Columbia. I maintain that there is no basis for the argument that our mine owners would not  benefit, and benefit largely by the re  moval of this duty upon lead ores.  The only other country except Canada  that is shipping lead ores into the  United States is Mexico, and in the  year that the United States got 16,000  tons from us, they 60,000 tons from  Mexico.  This is our case, Mr. Chairman, and  you may be sure that we are supported  in this contention by all those who are  engaged* in lead mining in this country. .  Rossland is rapidly becoming- the  financial headqnarters of Southern  British Columbia. Prosperity in the  silver-lead mining districts will mean  additional prosperity in the districts of  commerce and finance, such as the  Rossland district.    (Applause.)

SATURDAY,  AUGUST 19   18<*9.  THE GREENWOOD SCHOOL.  Monday, the 14th day of August, the  public schools of the province were reopened after the midsummer holidays.  Greenwood occupied the unfortunate  position of having no public school to  open and no immediate prospects of  securing one. The hundred school  ���children in the city must.be taught  privately or not at all. The city is  without a school building, teacher or  trustees.1 Greenwood is an. incorporated city in the province of British  Columbia���a province of which it has  been said that it possesses the most  liberal and advanced system of education in the world. Greenwood did not  spring up in a day. Its growth has  been gradual, giving plenty of time to  meet any requirements of the public.  There is no excuse for the absence of  educational facilities. It is simply the  outcome of a government divided  against itself and a consequent neglect  of public duties.  In 1896 a public school was established in Greenwood. In order that  there might be no delay in securing for  the small number of children then in  the city, a building was provided by  Mr. Robt. Wood. This building was  used until the close of the school term  this year���not because it was suitable,  but because the government never  could appreciate the importance of the  city and never took the steps necessary  to,provide a more suitable building.  This building was rented by the owner  after the last school term. For two  years the trustees urged upon the  education department to do something*.  At last the government called for  tenders for. the erection of a school  building. Nearly all the local contractors sent in tenders. After examining  the tenders the government decided  that the cost would be too great and  that the building contemplated could  not be erected. The board of trustees  gave up in disgust and resigned., Now  the government have mutilated the  plans and want contractors to tender  on a cheap-basis.  Even if the members of the government take the desperate plunge of expending a few dollars on a cheap  school building in the city, two or  three months will elapse before the  building is available. In the meantime, the children can enjoy the beauties of nature and become more perfect  in that higher education which comes  from the associations of the street, and  the parents may trust in God and tell  their friends in the east all about that  perfect system of education in vogue  in this province.  The gentlemen are largely interested  in the Dominion ; Copper company  which was organized for the purpose of  acquiring and developing McKenzie,  Mann & Go's large and valuable mining- interests. The gentlemen are  wide awake business men, ready to engage in any legitimate enterprise that  is likely to prove profitable. They  were most favorably impressed with  Greenwood and showed a strong  anxiety to invest their money in these  undertakings necessary to secure for  the city all the advantages to which  she is entitled by the position she occupies. The Dominion Copper company is a strong and enterprising  institution which can do much for  Greenwood and it is indeed fortunate  that some of the principals are so  favorable impressed with the city.  THE NEW ATTORNEY-GENERAL.  Whatever may be the result of the  New Westminister bye-election, there  are good prospects of stormy  political times in the province. : Alex.  Henderson - brings no strength to a  weak government'. He is not the man  for a position that carries grave responsibilities because of the hasty experimental legislation passed at the  last session of the,, provincial parliament. ,���'...  What the province needs is an attorney-general with Joe Martin's  strength without his weakness. Henderson possesses neither.

The  exhibit is not very large, but it giyes a  very' good idea of. that wonderful  variety of ore which is to be found in  the district. There will be numerous  mining, men at the Paris Exposition,  and no man could examine the Boundary Creek exhibit without coming to  the conclusion that the ore came from  a district worthy of the expert's attention.

The*K ��� is no sign of strength in  frantic efforts to tell the people how  prosperous we are and how much more  prosperous we are going to be. It  shows weakness when a city makes a  mad plunge to save its existence and  then goes into hysterics because it  does exist. Too much publicity cannot be given to the advantages possessed by a city, but this publicity  should be given in a manner that will  win confidence and respect. A city  occupying a natural position, with  mining camps surrounding' it and  tributary to it, is bound to grow.  Men's expedients may encourage this  growth, but it will grow anyway.  Greenwood  has grown, not because  of any hothouse treatment or any frequent display of fireworks, but because  it was and is in a position  to command  and secure the  trade.    This  year the  building operations involve an amount  greater than the value of all the buildings which were heretofore in the city.  Without   any   special   effort,   without  plunging  the  city  heavily  into debt,  financial  men  are perfecting plans to  carry on   undertakings  that  will  still  closer cement the relations existing between the city and surrounding camps.  Backed  by 53,000,000, the British  Columbia Copper company has its expert  in the district with a view of  selecting  the best site on Boundary Creek for a  large smelter.    Another big company  intends utilizing the power of Boundary   Falls   to   generate  electricity   to  light  the city and "bperate a tramway  between   Greenwood  and surrounding  camps. These are only a few of several  undertakings    that    are    backed    by  capital and   will soon  be accomplished  facts.

Work Wlil Begin at Once and  Rushed to Completion. Supplies all  Purchased. .The Line Will Connect With  Corbin and Other American Telegraph  Systems.     ���'  A private dispatch from Spokane announces that all the supplies necessary  for the construction of a telegraph  line from Marcus to Boundary Creek  has been puchasred and active work  will begin immediately. The line is  being built by a company who were  granted a charter at the recent session  of the Dominion parliament. The  moving, spirit in the company is Mr.  D. C. Corbin of Spokane and the other  incorporators are John Dean of Rossland and Duncan Ross of Greenwood.  The line wiil be operated in connection  ���with the Corbin system along the  Spokane Falls & Northern railway  Which' was retained when the railway  itself was sold to the Great Northern  company. Already a branch is in  operation between Meyer's Falls and  Republic but this will be abandoned as  soon as the line to Boundary creek is  completed.  The intention of the company is to  build from Marcus, Wash., following  the Kettle river to Grand Forks. Fro"m  here the line may be built to Greenwood  direct and on to Midway and Curlew  or it may continue along the Kettle  river, to Midway "���and thence up to  Greenwood. In any case the Republic  branch will start from Curlew creek as  it is'to expensive keeping the present  Republic line in repair.  As the construction of the telegraph  line is to be rushed there is no good  reason why it should not be completed  to Greenwood within sixty days.  The extension of the Corbin system  into the city will be a decided advantage.- It not only assures competition  but as it is to be constructed along a  different route to the C. P. R. line there  is a possibility that one line may be up  when the other is1 down.  of Mineral  Locations for the Week  Ending August 9.1899.  ' August 3. .  .     '  White I/iiv, Kimberly camp, J.

THE   BOUNDARY   GREEK   TIMES,  BOUNDARY GREEK WANTS.  rr'i  Mr.   H.  C.  Shaw Tells Coast  We Want.  People What  Mr. H. C. Shaw, of the law firm of  Hallett & Shaw, Greenwood, was welcomed back to the ci,y on Monday by  his many friends. He is here on important business fur clients in the  Boundary Creel: country. He will also  g-o to Victoria to interview the provincial government in regard to several  matters in connection therewith. Mi.  Shaw is very enthusiastic about the  prospects of Greenwood and the Boundary country. Viewing the mining interests from the standpoint of future  development, he regards them as of the  greatest importance to the province as  a whole. '���  In an interview with a  News-Advertiser   representative,   Mr;' Shaw said:  "With the promised advent of the Canadian  Pacific  Railway,  the economic  aspect in Boundary Creek district has  greatly changed  within  the   last six  mouths, both in business   and mining.  The big properties have been installing  new machinery and are getting   ready  to ship.    In each of the numerous mining   camps    surrounding   Greenwood,  ' there is one or more of such mines.   In  Greenwood  camp,  for  instance, there  are five or six practically on shipping  basis,   and   the  railway   compan}-   is  building   spurs   into-, all   the   camps.  This  means that the working force of  the   men  will  be greatly increased   in  each case, and that cottages for operatives, boarding and bunk houses,   etc.,  will be necessary.    In other words, the  rnine owners require  facilities for carrying on the work of the mines.  "Under these circumstances the question of ^surface rights becomes one of  very material consequence, and at the  present time is agitating the minds of  'the mine-owners in.no small degree.  The possibility of others acquiring  these rights for speculative purposes is  ever present, and naturally the mine-  owners do not feel like undertaking,  : extensive improvements without a cer-  '. tainty as to the title. This is" also a  consideration of importance with those  acquiring or seeking to acquire claims  for mining. It is retarding operations  now and,will continue to retard them  --if not definitely settled. Most of the  mineowners; in fact all of them, prefer  men with families if they can get them,  It is vastly, better in the interest of the  mining camps; and without proper  housing it is not possible to get such a  class of miners. <������  "There is a large number of mining  men and investors in the district looking out for suitale properties, and any  uncertainty as to matters affecting in-  vestmentB has* a decidedly prejudical  effect, more especially all along the  Washington side of the line���at Republic, Meyers creek, Oro and elsewhere���  good mining properties are being discovered, and the inducements to Canadian and British capitalists to invest  there are daily becoming greater.  Many of them are going over to that  side of the line, who should, if possible  be retained on our side. Hitherto, or  until recently, all the mining was being done in British Columbia.  "Now that the political situation has  cleared somewhat, the people of the.  Boundary district are hopeful that certain of the matters affecting the mining, and their interests generally, the  consideration of which has apparently  been held in abeyance, will have attention. They are, I may say, greatly  pleased with the new turn of affairs so  far.  "There are many things we want up  in the Boundary district which would  give general satisfaction,if their necessity were conceded. We need a local  supreme and county court registrar,  preferably in Greenwood;-we want a  local mining recorder with the powers  of a gold commissioner; we want a  definite decision as to' the right of  claim owners to secure surface rights,  as would appear to be the intention of  the law as it exists; we require greater  expedition in the recording of title  deeds, and the issuance of crown  grants; and we want more justices of  the peace and county constables. Down  here you cannot be expected to appreciate the inconvenience, delay and uncertainty that are caused sometimes by  the lack of such facilities. Of course  the people up there are not unreasonable as a class, nor are they 'kickers,'  moreover, they do not in a new district  expect to get everything in a day, and  it is, too,-generally understood that the  government, as a whole, is largely  guided in such matters by the legal  adviser of the crown; but as the situation changes they see no good reason  why these grievances���and they are  grievances���should not be remedied,  and as I said before, they are hopeful  that their representations will have  full and fair consideration.  "It is expected that passenger trains  will be running into Greenwood by the  1st of October, when very considerable  activity will result. For some time  merchants have been holding back orders, and heavy consignments of machinery and other material- are dated  so as to come in by rail. That together  with the fact that the prospectors and  mining men are out on the hills during  this season, has made, business quieter  than it would otherwise have been, but  in a month or two at the outside the  Boundary will be a very busy district,  particularly around Green wood. There  :i re numbers of enterprises depending  upon the arrival of the railway to take  definite shape.  "Greenwood is bound to be a big and  important place.    It is surrounded by  mining camps, and  being very solidly  built and developed.    Its business men  are all on a good  footing,  with  a reputation for sound business methods, a  fact which will   be   verified   by   any  traveller or financial man who knows  the district.    It has three banks and already does a large   wholesale.', trade.  The country  is  opening  up  in every  direction,   and   it is quite out of the  question   to, keep   track   of   the  new  strikes and discoveries that are being  made.    Greenwood,  with   the   start it  has will largely control the business of  the new camps and  the smelter towns.  A board of trade has been started and  promises to have an active and useful  career.                              '      ��� ~r1r  "It is a striking feature of the Boundary district that  there has not been,  so far as I know, a single wild-cat proposition put on the market,  and  every  property so far developed has improved  in valueswith depth, and promises success.    That   speaks   volumes   for   the  people who have come into the district,  and we  wish to maintain that reputa-,  tion if we can, and to obtain conditions  as favorable as possible for carrying on  the industry so successfully   inaugurated;"���News-Advertiser.           /nlNERS and :.:  PROSPECTORS  should Wear   : :  Ames Holden Co.'s  " Columbia ���'  '���Kootenay "  ."'
