Vol. IV.  GREENWOOD, B.C., SATURDAY, APRIL 23, 1898,  85 No. 7.  INFAMOUS   GERRYMANDER.  HE new redistribution is a travesty upon popular  representation. It is the measure of a moribund  administration in haste to do as much injury as  possible before receiving- its quietus from the  ',. enrag-ed electors. It is a measure ; which bears  the ear marks of fraud and the mantle of dishonesty. It is based upon no principle of representation. Itis a g-errymander of the first water. It is  the dome of a structure built of vicious laws and mal-ad-  ministration. It is a measure whose, defeat by any means  would be justified.  Running all through the measure is the determination  to make impotent the voting power of those who are opposed  to the government. The people of Boundary Greek have  been treated more cruelly than any other. They have been  thrown in with Rossland,���an annex 1o the constituency  proper. Boundary Creek with her wonderful resources, the  largest, richest mining* district in the province, the theme  of newspaper articles in every section of the continent, a  district which railway magnates fight about and commoners spend weeks' discussing, is an outskirt of the district of  Rossland ! Her people are to be thankful because they have  individually one-fifteenth as much political power as the  intelligent electors of Cassiar. If they have any business  at the county town, if they desire to discuss matters of public interest with the member for Rossland, they will secure  their passports, travel through a foreign country and thank  God that they have reached Rossland in safety. Ye Gods !  One is tempted to suppose that it is the measure of the  insane instead of the vicious.  In the good old days when right was might and oppression and injustice were driven out at, the point of the bayonet such a measure would scarcely be introduced. The people would not be slow in getting rid of the bill and the government. It was such treatment that lit the beacon fires  through the New England States and stubborn John Bull  found that the hardy colonists with right on their side were  stronger than Old England, It was legislation such as this  that made William I/yon McKenzie and other patriots of  1837 to take up arms and sacrifice their lives to secure for  posterity that full measure of political freedom denied  themselves. Fortunately for the government the people are  restrained by the political customs of to-day. They would  rather chafe underneath the ills inflicted upon them by  unscrupulo'us charlatans than commit violence. There has  never been a measure introduced in any legislature more  calculated to provoke the people than this same redistribution bill.  Boundary Creek district suffers most. Her people are  indeed craven hearted, fit subjects for the treatment the  government is attempting to accord them if they sit idly b}*  while their political power is being- legislated away. Given  a fair measure of political power, the people would naturally and very properly divide on questions of public policy,  but when they are all placed in a position of political Uit-  landers, political differences ought to give waj* to the more  important question of political freedom. Any voter no matter what has been his political predilections would be disloyal to his own interests and those of the district if he  gives any support to a candidate representing a government that would commit such an outrage.  The duty of the optjosition in the legislature is clear.  Never had they a greater opportunity to stand up for the  rights of the people.    They should not let the measure pass.  It would be infinitely   fairer to  the   people   that   elections  should be fought with the present redistribution than under  such a monstrous proposition as the one introduced  by   the  government.    The opposition should adopt the  obstruction  tactic of the faithful fighters who thus  prevented  the  passage of the Coercion  bill in   the  House of Commons.    The  opposition should fight the  measure  until   the present parliament no longer exists.    It should fight until the   government is forced to compromise and  give   a measure that has  some  semblance  of  fairness.    It is a  case  where  the end  justifies the means and the people will endorse any political  manoeuvre, any expedient that has for its object the defeat  of the measure. '  Occupying the most honorable position in the province  is a gentleman who has lived in an atmosphere of political  freedom for years. He has imbibed liberal ideas and has  worshipped atthe shrine of those patriots who died fighting*  against family compacts and irresponsible governments.  As Lieutenant-Governor of this province, he has a duty to  perform. We are loath indeed to appeal to the Iyieuteriant-  Governor to veto any measure. But this bill is so palpably  unjust and dishonest that he would be recreant to his duty  if he,did not save the people from a government that has  lost all sense of political decency. If the opposition in the  house cannot defeat the passage of the redistribution, Lieutenant-Governor Mclnnes should not give it his assent.  Mr. Turner in his anxiety to win the general election by  a system of gerrymander has Overreached himself. A gerrymander must have some element of fairness in its compo-  sition before it can be foisted upon the people. We have  every confidence in the people. They are natural^ fair.  They believe in fair play and they will never consent to  such a measure. It would be a waste of time to point out  the many examples of fraud in the measure. They must be  apparent to every one.. East Yale must be subdivided because its voting population has increased to about 1400.  This defect is remedied by cutting off Boundary Creek, adding it to a district over the mountains and thus making a  constituency of over 1500 voters !  The bill must not pass. The government will surely  reconsider the measure, the opposition will surely fight the  measure until the government surrenders or the L,ieuten-  ant-governor will surely veto the measure. Providence will  surely interfere somehow to prevent the passage of a measure that the Prince of Darkness would blush to father.  '/if  /If  PUBLIC   MEETING.  The action taken by the electors of Greenwood and Boundary Greek at the public meeting held on Tuesday was  prompt and decisive. The resolutions adopted are strongly  worded but the people can be excused for using strong language under the circumstances. At the present writing it  is not known what course the electors of Midway, Grand  Tories, Cascade City and Rock Creek intend to pursue but  it is hoped that in their own interests they will be strong in  their denunciation of the measure. A bitter fight such as  must be waged is disagreeable to most people but it is infi-  nitelybetter than political annihilation. If the measure is  not withdrawn the people will have at least the satisfaction  of making a valiant struggle for the preservation of their  political rights. We trust that other sections of the province will have sufficient fairness to denounce the injustice  done Boundary Creek district and that Rossland will be  generous enough to repudiate such an arrangement as that  contemplated.  t-i*iiifPt�� THE   BOUND ARY   CREEK    TIMES.  'iZTsiXB/vp.TzS'MfB vsuia^vs. J^"T*-rirr��g**a^^-5^*^-esv*c-a*?M  POLICE   VIOLENCE.  In the past provincial police  officers  in    this   district   have   used   extreme  measures in   handling  those, charged  with crimes and misdemeanors.    It has  happened  that victims of police offici-  ousness  have  been   acquitted but not  until they had been subjected to unwarranted  humiliation   and  absolute cruelty at the hands of over-zealous police  officers.    We have refrained from commenting upon such conduct, a  consideration for the enforcement of the  law  if not for  the  law officers restraining  us from expressing  the strongest  disapproval  of such methods.    But when  , a young man who has heretofore enjoyed the confidence of the public is handcuffed and ironed at  Camp  McKinney  and hauled  to Midway and thrown   in  jail all over a $12  set of   harness it is  surely time that attention of the proper  authorities was drawn to  the  conduct"  of the officer of the law responsible for  such an outrage.  The facts of the case as far as we  could learn are these : Frank Goodner  who drove Snodgrass' stage for several  months started a stage line between  Greenwood and Grand Forks. He  entered into an arrangement for the  purchase of a set of harness for $12  from E. B. Simmons of the International hotel. Goodner had the harness  repaired and when the stage line proved a failure he sold the harness to N.  Tholl for $20. Tholl came for the harness and Mr. Simmons gave him a bill  of sale for the same although he ( Simmons ) was not satisfied that Goodner  had fulfilled the terms of the contract  with himself. Before getting the bill  of sale from Mr. Simmons,Tholl reported the matter to Officer I^awder who in  turn reported to the Midway office.  Officer Gardom was sent to Camp McKinney. He arrested Goodner for obtaining* money under false pretenses.  We have been informed that Goodner  was handcuffed and leg irons placed  upon him and thus taken to the Midway jail.  We are strongly of the opinion that  Goodner has good grounds for damages against Officer Gardom, but in a  district like this without a resident  judg*e we protest against subjecting a  young* man to.such wanton cruelt}'. We  ask that the superintendent of provincial police and attorney-general inquire  into the matter.  A reference to Stone's Justices' Manual, a  recog*nized   authority, will   convince aii3r one that the officer exceeded  his authority.    Atpag*el28 the manual  states "It has been held that a constable   has   no. right to handcuff-a person  whom he has apprehended on   a   suspicion of felony unless he has attempted  to escape or   if   necessary   to   prevent  him   from   escaping*.'1    Again at page  215 " But such a degree of violence and  restraint    as   handcuffing   cannot   be  justified unless it   is    made   to   appear  there    are   good   special   reasons   for  resorting* to it."    '-There  cannot be a  general rule that will justify a constable in resorting to the extreme measure  of handcuffing* a. person in custod}- for  a misdemeanor   as. a   felon.*'    " Dam-  ���a-ges'( ;��i5 ) were recovered from a constable for handcuffing and keeping  handcuffed a prisoner whilst conveying  him by railway under warrant for perjury." ' \  .". '  Further comment is unnecessarv.  CORRESPONDENCE;  The Boundary Creek Times publishes communications on matters of public interest,  but disclaims an.3- responsibility- for the  opinions expressed in this column.  Sir :.���In your issue of March 26th  ult.y you quote from the Grand Forks  Miner the appointment of Mr. Gilpin  as officer of Inland Revenue at that  point. This is quite-correct,;''but when  you proceed to insinuate incapacity on  the part of Mr. Deputy Collector Stuart  as the reason of the new appointment  you are very far afield. Mr. Stuart is  one of the best officers in the Interior  and since his appointment has given  every satisfaction to his department  and it was solely from an economic  point of view that he was relieved from  the supervision of excise work at Grand  Forks as the commission paid to Mr.  Gilpin will be very much less than tlie  traveling expenses necessarily received  by Mr. Stuart when supervising- both  places. In fairness to Mr. Stuart I  -would ask you to give this explanation  the same prominence as the' article  before mentioned.  J. E. Miller, Col. In. Rev.  Vancouver, April 14th, 1898.  [After the most careful study of the  article to which Mr. Miller refers we  are unable to discover any insinuation  of incapacity on the part of Mr. Stuart.  Unless Inland Revenue officers wish to  leave themselves open to the charge of  having but little to do, they should  refrain from making a fuss about a  short article which' appeared in the  local columns of a newspaper.���-Ed.]  T.

His Worship Mayor Wood presided, and all the  aldermen excepting Aid. Kerr were  -present.;'';  The committees on fire by-law and  the selection of a site for city offices  were granted further time to report.  Aid. Phelan gave notice that at the  next meeting of the council he will introduce a Public Morals by-law. Aid.  Oalloway gave notice of a Rate by-law  for 1898. /  The city constable was asked to  prosecute all persons obstructing  streets or not observing the provisions  of the Provincial Health Act.  Moved by Aid. Galloway, seconded  by Aid. Barrett, that the city constable  be authorized to provide light, fuel and  caretaker for the court-house while  used by council.���Carried.  Council then adjourned.  TELEPHONE   LINE.  Mr. Naden during his visit in Rossland was interviewed by the manager  of the Vernon & Nelson Telephone  Company. He was anxious to know  what inducement the people of this district would offer to build a telephone  line to Greenwood. As it seems almost  impossible to get any public work carried out here without a bonus and as a  telephone line is not only a convenience  but a necessity, the business men of  Greenwood and mine owners ought to  seriously consider the advisability of  doing something in order to secure the  line. We understand that if the right  of way is cleared for the company between Grand Forks and Greenwood  that the company will build. As all  the clearing necessary is ,the cutting  down of trees that are likely to fall  across the wires, it strikes us that those  having property along the wagon road  might be induced to do the work opposite their own mines.  Others ought to assist in the work  and it is quite possible to have sufficient work done to induce the company  to build.  Baseball  Club.  A meeting of the Greenwood Baseball Club was held on Monday evening.  There was a g"ood attendance of baseball enthusiasts present. The following officers were elected: President,  W. M. Law; Vice-president, M. E.  Miller; Secretary-Treasurer, Geo. F,  Miller ; Committee of Management, W.  J. Harris, Geo.Tnkster, Geo. Miller and  A. T. Thomas. The club have leased  a large plot of ground from the Town-  site Company. It will be cleared at  once. There are several crack players  belonging to the club and the members  feel confident that Greenwood will take  the pennant this year.  H. Allenberg, of Spokane, general  agent for the Equitable Iyife Insurance  Co., paid Greenwood a business visit  this week. Mr. Allenberg also spent  some time in Eureka where he has mining interests.

THE   BOUNDARY   CREEK    TIMES.  m**ltam.mm**mm��iW'm\m��mp*Vfiflipi,Tull!llV  ROSSLAND   IN   LINE.  It is fortunate for the electors of  Boundary Creek district that in their  struggle ag-ainst disfranchisement they  will have the assistance of the electors  of Rossland. In another article we  said that we had every confidence in  the people, and the people of Rossland  are showing-their generosity by refusing to endorse a scheme, which places  Boundary Creek district at such a distinct disadvantage. The Rossland  Miner has the following very sensible  remarks to offer concerning* the  ���question :  The Victoria Colonist and  the   Vancouver World, the   two   principal   government organs at the coast, hasten to  .say that the  Redistribution   Bill   is   a  fair measure and will'meet all  reasonable expectations.,   The fact  remains,  however, that the Rossland deputation  returned from their interview with the  government  with   the  distinct  understanding that West  Kootenay   was to  have   five   additional   members   under  the new  Redistribution   act.    The district, consequently, is much disappointed aiid   there   is   a  strong   and   undisguised feeling*  here  that  it  has  been  unjustlj'-  dealt  with.    West Kootenay  gains   practically   nothing*  under  the  new   arrang-ement.       The    Boundar}'  Creek country, in   all   fairness,   is   entitled to a separate member.    By tack-. ;  ing it to West Kootenay we  have  the  same representation  as  formerly,   the,,  only difference   being that  the   boundaries   of    the    divisions   have    been  .  changed.    Instead of Boundary Creek  remaining a part of  South Yale,   it   is  incorporated  with  Rossland   division,  formerly a part of the North Riding: of  West Kootenaj-v; the  North   Riding  is'  reduced in size by the loss of the Trail  Creek Mining  division,   and   the   new  Nelson electoral division is but another  name for the old Slocan electoral division.    It is just as well that the government should know before it is  too   late  to rectify a terrible   political   blunder,  ���that'its' popularity   in West Kootenay  is  certain, to   suffer   severely   if  the  Redistribution bill passes   the  legislative   assembly   as it now stands.

Similkameen   Properties.  Mr. R. Patterson, of Rossland,  reached Greenwood yesterday, after  .spending* several weeks examining  properties in the Similkameen country.  Mr. Patterson succeeded in securing  some valuable copper claims for the  .syndicate which he represents, and before leaving he started several men to  work developing the same. It will be  ���remembered, thnt Mr. Patterson was  negotiating* for the purchase, of the  Sunset, in the Similkameen county.  It is owned b3r R. A. Brown, of Grand  Forics. As the negotiations are to be  ���re-opened, it is just possible that a deal  may be made. Mr. Patterson reports  that considerable development work is  being* done on Kruger mountain, and  some pretty copper glance was taken  from properties in that vicinity. Mr.  Patterson left for Rossland to-dajr.  The Municipal Court of Revision  will be held in Rendell & Co's. hall on  Monday next at ten o'clock.

Attorney-General IDberts has introduced a bill to amend the Columbia &  "Western Subsidy Act. The bill has  been read a first time. It provides  that " The time limited .by section 4 of  the Columbia & Western Railway Subsidy Act, 1896, for defining and projecting the lands to be granted to the  Columbia & Western Railway company in pursuance of said section is  hereby extended for nine months, as  and from the 17th April, 1898, notwithstanding that the provisions of said  section 4 have not been complied with."  By section 4 referred to, it was necessary for the company, before April  17th, 1898, to define and project in a  manner satisfactory to the. Chief Commissioner of I^ands and Works, upon a  plan of the located line of railway or a  section or sections thereof, wherever  practicable, the boundary lines of alternate blocks of land fronting upon  each side of the line of the said railway and having a frontage of six  miles on the said railway by a depth of  16 miles, so that wherever practicable  each block so selected and defined by  the company shall be opposite to. a, similar block not selected by the company  on the other side of the railway. The  Columbia & Western company have so  far not complied with this section, and  the intention of the government is to  save the company's land grand of  20,000 acres a mile by granting nine  months' extension of time.  The  Winnipeg.  Mr. 'D.-'.-H.-. Beecher, president, and  W. F. Honey, secretary-treasurer, of  the Winnipeg Mining Co., were among  the visitors to Greenwood this week.  Mr. Beecher was surprised at the rapid  growth of the city since his visit here  about a year ago. Both were very  much disappointed that the success of  Corbin's application for a railway  charter was not surer. Thinking, the  Dominion parliament would never deny  such a reasonable application, the Winnipeg Company had doubled its force  with a view to having the property on  a permanent shipping basis by November this year. Mr. Honey stated that  the company intended to continue development work but not with as  much vigor as they could had Corbin secured his charter.  Mr. Beecher left for Spokane on Saturday. He.has other heavy interests  in the West which he intends seeing*.  He expects to reach his home in Grand  Forks, N. D., in about   two weeks.  The   City   Map.  Mr. C. 2H&-. Shaw, C. E}., has just completed the map of the city and turned  it over to the cit\r council. The map  shows every portion of the city and is  the first complete one prepared. It is  over ten feet in leng*th and includes  not only the original townsite but all  the subdivisions arid portions of mineral claims within, the corporation limits. The map may be seen at the  Court house.

"A,'thoroughly representative meeting  of the electors of Greenwood and vicinity-was "held in Rendell &. Co's. hall,  on -Tuesday afternoon for the purpose  of expressing* public disapproval of the  redistribution introduced by,the government. His Worship, Mayor Wood,  was voted to the chair and Mr. H. B.  Munroe appointed secretary. W. T.  Thompson, of Midway, Aid. Gallowaj',  Aid. Phelan, A. S. Black, Thos. Hardy,  Duncan Ross, Mayor Wood and others  made strong* speeches condemning* the  measure. ,  Mr. Hardy, president of the Bound-  aryvCreek Mining- & Commercial Association then moved the following* resolutions. The/y were seconded b}r Mr.  Munroe, and carried unanimously :  Whereas, The redistribution bill  introduced by the provincial government  (1.) Practically disfranchises the  people of Boundary Creek district.  (2.) Creates the electoral district of  Rossland with a voting* population of  over 1500 votes���a number out of all  proportion to that in other constituencies in the province.  (3.) Leaves the rich and growing  Boundary Creek district at the mercy  of the now more populous district of  Rossland and vicinity.  (4.) Places in one constituency people who have no business relations  with each other, who are separated by  a high range of mountains.  (5.) Creates a district that is disjointed and cumbersome,making* it impossible for one member to attend to its  requirements.  (6.) Is an infamous genwmander.  (7.) Leaves the people of Boundary-  Creek district without political power  or political .influence.  ( 8.) Gives them no voice in the gov-  ernmen't of the province.  (9.) Introduces the barbarous policy  of taxation without representation.  (10.) Is based-on the policy of government of the many by the few, perpetuates the   evil of pocket   boroug*hs,  gives extensive powers   to   small   and  sparsely populated districts.  (11.) Is a measure vicious and dishonest, disgraceful to the government  which introduced it and humiliating* to  those who supposed they lived in a  province blessed with responsible government.  Be it therefore Resolved, That  the people of Greenwood and Boundary  Creek district in meeting* assembled do  strongly denounce the measure ; That  we ask for its 'withdrawal, or for such  amendments as will give us similar  rights to those of other portions of the  province.    And be it further  RESOivVED, That should the government not g*ive us redress, that we respectfully urg*e upon the opposition  members of the legislature to obstruct  the passage of the redistribution bill  in its present form, as, the old redistribution is preferable to the present;  and be it further  RESoiyVED, That if no other relief is  possible, that a humble petition be presented by the electors of Boundary  Creek to His Honor the Lieutenant-  Governor, requesting* him to withhold  his assent to the measure; and be it  further  Resolved, That the1 electors of  Greenwood and Boundary Creek district here assembled unanimously  pledge themselves to oppose the Turner government and any government  candidate unless a fair and equitable  redistribution bill is substituted for the  one now before the legislature ; and be  it further  Resolved, That copies of these reso;  lutions be forwarded to members of the  government, members of the legislature, and the press of the province.  Robert Wood,  H. B. Munroe, Chairman.  .- ������" "Clerk. ���'       .'  The resolutions were ordered printed  and also forwarded to the different persons mentioned therein. It was,  alsq decided to communicate with other  portions of the district requesting them  to take similar action. ;^  Greenwood   Hospital.  After May 1st, treatment at the  Greenwood hospital will be at the disposal of every one at a very moderate  price. Dr. Jakes has decided to issue  monthly and annual tickets of admission to the hospital. As will be seen  in the advertisement monthly tickets  can be jDrocured for two dollars or an  annual ticket for $20. As the hospital  has already- established a name for  excellent treatment every wise man  will provide for careful nursing and  medical attendance when ill by securing monthly-or yearly tickets. It is of  course understood that no hospital  tickets are sold to people already sick.  Up the  Kettle  River.  Mr. J. C. Olson, of Olson & Phelan,  returned on Monday from the Kettle  River where the firm have some valuable mining interests. Two men are  at work on the King Solomon and some  rich looking ore is being taken from  the prospect. Mr. Olson reports that  the government ordered the work to be  stopped on the ferry across the Kettle  river above Rock Creek. This ferry is  an absolute necessity and it is probably for this reason that the work has  been stopped as the government are  plain.'3- showing its determination to  punish the people of this district for  their opposition.  h.

Mr. Elkins' evidence was  to the effect that he had dinner at the  defendant's hotel and was served with  venison ; that he subsequently found  four quarters of venison hanging up  in an outhouse and which he confiscated. The defendant admitted the  charge but claimed that as he was a  free miner he had a right to kill deer  at any time. The court inflicted a fine,  including costs, of $25.50.

There is still some hope for the Kettle River Valley Railway. A dispatch  from Ottawa says that ," The bill was  disposed of in a somewhat novel way,  although strictly within parliamentary  rules. In committee of the whole a  few nig-hts ago the bill was amended  by reducing the capital stock from  $2,500,000 to $1,500,000. The question  put to the house last night was for the  second reading of the bill as amended.  By a majority of 20 the house negatived the motion and the bill was accordingly dropped from the order paper.  The officers of the house state that this  is the first time since confederation  that a measure has been rejected in  this particular way. A bill so disposed  ���of, however, can be revived and placed  on the orders again for a future day, if  the house should decide to consider it  again at the stage at which it was  dropped. Mr. Blair had with him in  favor of the bill Sir Richard 'Cart-  wright and Messrs. Dobel, FitJjpatrick,  Mulock, Paterson, and -Siftou. Mr.  Tarte carried 01113" one member of the  cabinet with him'ag*aiust the bill, but  lie carried a he movement to kill it. Of  the British Columbia members, Messrs.  BostoL'.k and Morrison supported the  bill, and Messrs. Earle, Maxwell and  Mclnnes   voted   against   it."    A later  dispatch from Toronto states that Mr.  Bodwell, the representative of the Kettle Valley railway   project, is   quietly  preparing for another attempt to secure  the   passage   of   the   bill   at Ottawa.  Members coming in from  the  country  say public opinion is decidedly in favor  of the charter,   and  they  urge that as  there is nothing* to lose and everything*  to  gain,   an   effort   will   be   made to  secure the reinstatement of the  bill on.  the order paper.    It  is said that if Mr.  Corbin does hot get a  charter  he  will  build   a  mail  line  just   south   of  the  border in the  United  States  and construct branch  lines  at  various points,  along the main line that will run to the  border   at    points    where   mines   are  located."    The vote by  which the bill  was defeated, 64 to 44, shows that half  the members of the  house  were  away  or purposery refrained from voting.    If  the bill should be reconsidered Sir Wilfrid Iyaurier should  get  his party into  line  and  carry  the  bill   through   the  house.    The defeat of such  a  measure  would show a policy  narrow and illiberal and the onus will fall on the party  in   power.    It  is   a policy   foreign   to  every   liberal    principle   and    should  secure the, support of  those only  who  believe   in   erecting   a   Chinese   wall  around Canada or those who borrow  mone3r from the C. P. R. and then discuss the granting* of charters to competitive railways from the broad standpoint of public interest.,  Goodner  Acquitted.  Frank Goodner who was taken from  Camp McKinney in irons by Officer  Gardom appeared before W. H. Norris,  J. P., on Thursday. After hearing the  witnesses, the magistrate held that  there was not a tittle of evidence upon  which Goodner could be sent up for  trial and the charg*e was consequently  dismissed. Goodner when arrested  was on his way to Ashcroft where he  had secured a position driving stag*e on  the Cariboo road. Reference is made  in another column to the extraordinary  course pursued by Officer Gardom in  the case.  Heavy Travel.  J. Christie, M. R. C. V.

THE   BOUNDARY   CREEK   TIMES,  CORBIN   CHARTER   DEFEATED.  The Kettle River Valley Railway bill  was defeated in the House of Commons  on April 15th. The French-Canadian  members who had supported the bill in  the railway committee went over to the  C.P.R. when it came up for third reading and the vote was 44 to 64 against  the bill. The C.P.R. kept up the fight  against the measure until they secured  its defeat. Hon. Mr. Tarte was induced to oppose the measure in the  house, and the ^French members followed him. Mr. Oliver, of the Northwest, Mr. John Ross Robertson, of  Toronto, and other members made a  strong fight to save the measure.  Mr. Oliver took the position that the  onl}-- competition that could be secured  for the district was from the south. He  held that the exertions of the C.P.R.  to defeat this bill was sufficient to justify its passage ; that something more  than the mere trade of the Boundary  district was involved, as that would  not have the president, secretary and  other officers of the C.P.R. lobbying  the members as never before, nor  would they have the C.P.R. running a  special train to accommodate those  members who voted against the bill.  There was evidence before the country  that the question at issue was the large  question of .railway, competition in  Manitoba, the Northwest and British  Columbia. The C.P.R. would not only  have an absolute monopoly of railway  transportation in British Columbia,  but also an absolute monopoly of the  smelting* industry in that province.  Mr. John Ross Robertson commended  Mr. Blair for his utterances On this bill  but regretted that more of the members  of the government had not spoken for"  themselves instead of for the autocracy  of the C.P.R. Despite the protestations of the C.P.R. that they desired to  keep trade in Canada, he expected to  be in the house long enough to see  them build a line from Kootenay to  Spokane. By their action in leaving  the people of the Boundary Creek district to the tender mercies of the C.P.R.  he thought the leaders of the opposi-,  tion were throwing g*reat discredit on  the good old tory policy of protection.  If the bill was defeated it would show  that it was no use for people to come to  the high court of parliament to secure  justice when it better suited the interests of the C.P.R. to have injustice  done.  The Grand Trunk railway issued a  circular in support of the bill as giving  them communication with the British  Columbia mining sections, but it was  all in vain.  The news of the defeat of the Corbin  charter created the keenest disappointment in Greenwood. The only satisfaction was that the fight made was  not in vain, because the district had  been extensively advertised and railway companies which had been waiting* for subsidies were forced to make  hasty preparations to begin construction. It is believed that Mr. Corbin  will build through the reservation to  Midway, and that the C.P.R. will make  good their promises to  have  the  road  completed by November next. In order  Ho make sure of this the government  have been asked to take action. Imme-  diatery upon receipt of a telegram stating that the Corbin charter had been  defeated, the following dispatch was  sent to Sir Wilfrid L/aurier, Hon. Mr.  Blair and Mr. Bostock, M.P. :  "Corbin charter having been defeated, the people of Boundary Creek district urge upon the Dominion government to adopt such measures as will  force the C.P.R. to commence construction ininiediatel3r.  Robert Wood, Mayor.  Duncan Ross."  The Spokesman-Review, discussing  the defeat of the Corbin charter, makes  the following sensible remarks :  ..*' By the defeat of the Corbin charter, Canadian progress has been sacrificed to Canadian Pacific greed. The  Canadian Pacific was led by a dual  motive to fight Mr. Corbin with every  resource at its command. It desired a  monopoly of the traffic from the mines  of Boundary Creek, and wanted its  own time to build into that section.  And it was alarmed at the precedent  which the Corbin charter would have  established���the building of a railway  in British Columbia without land grant  or subsidy.  Unless this issue can be reconsidered  at Ottawa, British Columbia will suffer from the Canadian Pacific victory.  The development of a rich district will  be retarded, and when the Canadian  road is built, the mines and business  interests will find themselves in a  grasp of harsh monopoly. They could  have had two roads for nothing, and  had them quickly. They will now wait  fpr one road, and in all probability pay  a good price for that in land grant and  money subsidy. ���  Meanwhile Spokane and American  industries will lose little or nothing by  this course of the Dominion parliament. Driven out of the Boundary  Creek country, Mr. Corbin will probably concentrate his energy and  resources on the quick building of lines  into the growing camps of the Colville  reservation. Smelters contemplated  by Mr. Corbin and his associates for  Grand Forks and vicinity, will probably  be built on this side of the border, and  there being no direct rail connection  between the reservation camps and  British Columbia, all the ores of the  reservation mines will be smelted by  American smelters.  Canada would have suffered severe  losses if it had clubbed Mr. Corbin out  of Trail Creek and Nelson; Now that  it has clubbed him, out of Boundary  Creek, it will pay for its narrow provincial policy.  A   Business   Change.  Mr. J. P. Harlan has leased his  assay office to Mr. Keith, the principal  of the Greenwood school. Mr. Keith  takes charge of the business on 10th  of May and has sent in his resignation  to the Board of School Trustees to take  effect on that date. He has had considerable experience in assay work in  California and elsewhere. Mr. Harlan,  intends devoting his time to the development of his mining* properties in the  district.  ary  -Q^oS^P-  SuBSCRIPTION,   SOC.  PER MONTH.  ALL    THE    BEST    NOVELS.

ANDERSON.  muMm&-iamp*--|--s-^ -v:*-i  THE   BOUNDARY   CREEK   TIMES,  h.vaurwfriwvtxyjsfn'^amKmrmNiwitncmrxi  REDISTRIBUTION   BILL.  The redistribution as   introduced by  the government proyides for four additional members, making a house  of 37  members instead   of 33.;   Cassiarwith  a voting  population  of not more than  300 is given two members ;   Vancouver  is granted an additional ���member making four for that city.    East Kootenay  is granted an   additional member i the  electoral district of Rossland is created  with     one    member,    The    Rossland  division includes what was practically  the old Kettle River  Mining Division.  The Times would be pleased to publish  the   boundaries  as they  appear in the  bill but without the assistance Of a map  none of  its  readers could  understand  them.    Briefly   the  western boundary  of the Rossland division begins at  the  international   boundary   line   directly  south  of  Rock   Creek.    It follows  the  Kettle river to where it is joined by the  East Fork.    From this point the boundary runs in a north-easterly direction  to Fire Valley, southerly to the Columbia river andXower Arrow  lakes  and  following   the Columbia river   to   the  international boundary line.    To give  a better idea of the size of this district  it may be mentioned  that  it  includes  the city  of   Rossland,   Trail, Cascade  City,   Grand  Forks,   Greenwood, Midway, Rock Creek, and of course all the  mining camps in the vicinity of  these  towns.    Only one member  is given to  this   enormous     constituency.      East  Yale, Mr.   Graham's constituency, includes Camp McKinney, Osoyoos, Ker-  emeos,  Fairview,   Penticton   and  the.  surrounding  niining  camps,  also   the  Vernon country   right up to Shuswap  lake.  The Rossland district stretches  nearly 100 miles along the international  boundary and includes all the prominent mining camps in southern British  Columbia. Given the same treatment  as other parts of the province, it would  be entitled to at least three members  instead of one. Another remarkable  thing about the measure is that provision is made for a free and easy registration of voters in Cassiar without  regard to time of residence in that district or province.  Mr. Ivee Davenport, who is connected  '.with' the C.'P. R's. smelter at Trail has  been examining Bottndaiy Creek properties during- the past week. Mr.  Davenport is making minute inquiries  , into the quality of Boundary Creek  ores and will make an exhaustive  report to .the C.'P. R. Co., with respect  to the smelting possibilities of the  district.  W. J. Snodgrass & Sons, Prop's.

Theo Foust who had  been  employed  at the Greenwood  saw  mill  for  some  time   is   now   in  the   clutches, of   the  American officers.    Foust was arrested  in   iOureka   for robbery   in  Idaho.    It  appears  that he and  his partner were  charged   with   robbing   ah   old  man.  The partner was found guilty and sentenced     to   20   years'    imprisonment.  Foust who had been   out on bail  skipped and came to Greenwood.    A reward  of $2,500 was   offered   for   his   arrest.  Foust's  wrife  and child  followed him  here  and they lived near the saw mill  for,.several   months.    They   suddenly  left the city and went tolOureka.    Here  Sheriff Denny of Stevens county found  him and had him arrested.    Foust retained a lawyer to accompany him and  when   the   sheriff   with   his   prisoner  reached Grand Forks the lawyer asked  the protection of the  city authorities,  claiming  Foust was being kidnapped.  Police Magistrate Johnson took charge  of the prisoner and remanded  him for  eight days to give Sheriff Denny   time  to procure extradition papers.  Large Plant for the Mother Lode.  Mr. Fred.
