Vol. IV.  GREENWOOD, B.C., SATURDAY, APRIL 30, 1898.  86  No; 8.  .��2.  "En  n  DEFEAT   OF   CORBIN   CHARTER.  HI$ defeat of the Corbin  charter in  the  Dominion  House of Commons is anything but satisfactory  to those who believed that with the passing  away of the conservative administration a government not in the grasp of corporations was put  in power. There cannot be the slightest doubt  that if the members had been  left free to  exer  cise their common sense and good judgment the Corbin  charter would have been granted with but little opposition. But the Ca.nad.ian Pacific Railway Company is more  powerful than parliament and holds a tighter reign over the  members than does Sir -Wilfrid I^aurier. It is true that,  during the fight in the house, Sir Wilfrid was incapacitated  through illness and consequently his great influence was  lost for the measure ; but there was a principle involved in  that application for a charter which ..was more important  than the C. P. R. or the Corbin railway and that is the right  to construct railways in this country irrespective of the  wishes of a rival railway company. It was such a principle  as liberals struggled for and when it was threatened by a  powerful corporation like the Canadian Pacific Railway  Company^ we are strongly of the opinion that the question  became of such grave importance as to demand a declaration of policy on the part of the government. When the  Hon. Mr. Blair made a strong statement in favor of the  Corbin bill in the railway committee, it was reasonable to  suppose that he was making a declaration for the government.  The position taken by Mr. Tarte is to say the least discouraging. He has been charged with being too warm a  friend of the C. P. R's. and his violent attack upon the Kettle River Valley Railway bill lends color to the charge. His  conduct is a sharp contrast to that of the Toronto Globe's  which had been similarly charged. The Globe showed its  independence by making a brave and strong fight for the  measure ; Mr.Tarte deserted his own colleagues in the Cabinet, to assist the C. P. R. in its unreasonable fight against  a rival company.  The people of British Columbia have no quarrel with the  Canadian Pacific Railway Company. They welcome it as  an enterprising* railway company but.refuse to accept it as  the g-overnment of this country., They did not object and  do not object to the expenditure of public money to encourage railway construction in the west, but they do most  .strenuously object to the expenditure of public money to create a railway monopoly. It is an alarming state of affairs  when the C. P. R. which has been heavily assisted by public funds and public lands, can tell the Canadian people that  there can be no competition to the C. P. R. It is a still more  alarming state of affairs when-Canadian people are asked  to endorse the patriotic platitudes of an expatriated American who is president of a Canadian railway that has feeders  to every commercial town of importance along the international boundary line. The fight is not over. The C. P. R.  may be congratulating itself upon its victory but British  ���Columbia cannot be checked any more than Manitoba.  Railway competition must come from the South and unless  the government will show more interest in a bill providing  for railway competition than it did when it allowed the Kettle River Railway bill to be defeated with half the members  absent then so much the worse for the government.  The whole system of railway legislation in Canada is a  mistake. It encourages the chartermonger and the subsidy  hunter and discourages the honest railway builder. The  persistent lobby necessary to  secure  the  passage of a rail  way bill is likely to force capitalists to invest their riioney  where people do not throw barriers in the way of those who  wish to spend their own money in the development of the  country. There should be a general railway act under  which any man could build' a railway when and where he  pleases so long as he does not ask for public assistance.  *'&   A"*   *v*  �����s?    �������?���    wS  llf  lip  GERRYMANDERED   INTERIOR.  The newspapers of the interior which heretofore supported tne Turner government characterize the Redistribution bill as a political blunder. The bill is worse than a  blunder ; it is an unexcusable crime. It is not hasty legislation ; it is a deliberate effort to kill the power of the people. The more the measure is considered, the more outrageous does its provisions appear. It is not surprising the  government were not anxious to introduce such a measure ;  it is surprising that it had the temerity to dp, so. The  vacillating premier must have been driven to desperation  before he could summon sufficient courage to stand sponsor  for a bill that makes war upon every popular right and is  calculated to arouse the bitterest opposition.  Setting aside the absurdity   of   allowing 400   voters in,  Dsquimalt as much political power as 2000  electors in Rossland, Trail, Cascade  City,   Grand Forks,  Greenwood, Mid-,  way and all the  important  mining   camps which surround  these towns, the quintessence of dishonesty is reached when  the Cassiar outrage is considered.  Cassiar,   a large  and sparsely populated district, had  been given one representative for years.    Its voting  population was less than 100, but considering its isolation no one  seriously objected to the  handful  of electors  there having  a representative   in  the  legislature.    But when this representation is doubled and the spirit of the election act  deliberately violated it is time that the people   of  this   province  used  stronger   measures than criticism in dealing with the  present    administration.    We  have   always   advocated   a  united   province and  deprecated   sectionalism;   but if our  political power is to be cut off by a band of irresponsibles at  Victoria, if we are to be left with only the right  of expressing our opinions, without the power to carry them into effect  through the ballot box, it will not be   surprising   if the people pf the interior will seriously consider the advisability of  securing political independence through the extreme  course  of political separation.    If the .redistribution bill   is   passed  in its present form,  "Justice or Separation " is likely to be  the   battle   cry   of every   elector  of  the interior.    We will  regret such a course but the government   must  assume the  responsibility.    It was responsible for the sectional  cry   in  the   past.    It   pursued a course   that  pitted   the Mainland  against the Island and the Island against the Mainland.  We can scarcely force ourselves into believing that such  an extreme course will be necessary. There are men. of  sufficient honesty and courage in the house to restrain the  government from committing such an outrage. If government supporters could only realize that a crisis has been  reached in this province they could save the government  from being the victims of their own folly and insist upon a  redistribution that had at least the shadow if not the substance of justice. Unfortunately- however a narrow provincialism influences certain members of the house. Theyr  never look beyond their own pocket boroughs, and when  they are left in the security of their sparsely populated constituencies they consider that the interests of the province  are being* conserved Will these members assert their inde-  pendence for the nonce ? Will they not consider the interest of the province rather than   their  own   politiccd advan- L*a*Ji*eS5.^^>..-^-i^^  f. P?  r';':  |  .'..��� ���:������'  '<������!;  ���fc|.

Will they not prevent the government for whose acts they must assume responsibility, from committing,  an unpardonable political crime ? It is  ^useless to appeal to the government.  Its /members are not open to reason.  Their highest conception of public  duty is to exploit private interest and  assist hungry adventurers.  The redistribution is an insult to the  people of Kootenay   and  Yale and is a  reflection   upon . the possibilities- and  the permanency of these districts. Both  districts have been pouring* wealth into  the  treasury of  this province without  adequate   returns.    Both    have    been  increasing in population   and  millions  have been spent in   their development.  Is not-this development to cease, is not  the   population   going*   to   migrate to  Cassiar ?    Are  not   the   mines   to   be  closed and Kootenay and Yale  become  of less importance than L/ondon of the  future���:.a mere   fishing  village?    Has  riot the tide  of immigration turned towards Cassiar?    Is it a  redistribution  bill that looks to the future when it will  be a measure based upon the principle  of    representation     by     population?  What  a   false  commentary  upon this  district-!    How absurd as far as Kootenay is concerned !  The government is only making more  aggressive its  policy of slighting and  neglecting and insulting- the Southern  portion of the province.    When the peopled .-Boundary   Creek   district   were  struggling* to secure railway communication   that cost   the country nothing*,  the    provincial    government   did    its  utmost to influence the Dominion parliament not to grant legislation so urgently needed.    Instead of carrying out  its pledge to assist in   building-   a road,  to Boundary Creek the  government "is  now considering the insane proposition  of building a road to  Yukon  with provincial   money!    Kootenay   and   Yale  are milch   cows kicked and   abused by  the ing-rates whom they feed !  The passage of the redistribution bill  will be the last straw. If the measure  becomes law, the people of the interior  will -fight against'politicai slavery and  they will win even if winning means  the disintregation of theprovince.  Commercial   Association.  The regular meeting of the Boundary  Creek Mining & Commercial Associ-  ation was held on Wednesday evening.  The question of a quicker mail service  from Penticton was discussed.

D. H. Beecher, treasurer of the Win-  nipeg- Company, left for his home in  Grand Forks. N.D., on Sunday last,  after spending- a week in the camp. He  is hig-hly pleased with the work being-  done on the Winnipeg. In all there  have been over 600 feet of work done  on the claim, and the lowest assay  from ledg-e matter has been $35. Ten  men are working-, two shifts being- run,  averag-ing* about six feet in 24 hours.  Two men are working- on the Athel-  stan. Owing to surface water, the  shaft had to be abandoned for a time  and part of the force laid off. The  work now being done consists of  open  CUts.   , .' ' ./'.,-���'.  A letter has been received froni H.  Iv. Jones, a partner of Jno. Rogers in a  number of properties in Wellington  camp. Mr. Jones left for the Similkameen about a month ago, to do assessment work on<some claims there. He  is how at Princeton, and although considerable show was encountered he had  a fairly good trip, feed being* quite  plentiful.  Jack Farrell, G. W. Rumberger and  W. Porter aire working on the Ironclad,  a claim north-east of the Athelstan.  The work now being done is on a recent  strike, the ledge having been uncovered  for a distance of about 30 feet in length  and six feet in width, and is iron, carry ing good values in copper and gold.  The claim gives promise of being one  of the best in Wellington camp.  Two shifts are-working on the tunnel  of the Golden Crown. The work is in  ore, but no values could be ascertained.  L,ee Davenport, a C.P.R. expert, visited WellingLon camp properties Sunday and Monday. ,fc���^,^^  J. Taylor left Sunday morning for  Salt I^ake City and the Arkansas Hot  Springs. He will be away a couple of  months.  On Monday evening Chas. Murphy  was injured by a quantity of rock falling on him in the Winnipeg mine.  While shots were being put off in one  of the drifts the men congregated in,  the.."west drift; a quantity of rock,  loosened by the shot, fell, striking  Murphy on the back and head. His  head is badly cut, but no serious results  are anticipated and he will probably  be able to resume work in the course of  a week.  Forbes M. Kerby has completed the  survey of the Athelstan, in Wellington  camp.  Mr. Patterson, blacksmith at the,.  Winnipeg, had his hand crushed by  being caught between the bail and  bucket while emptying rock into the  car on Sunday morning. He is now at  the Greenwood hospital.  Sentenced for Smuggling.  Ben Benson of Kureka has been sentenced to seven months' imprisonment  at McNeill's Island and to pay a fine  of $100 for smuggling. Benson ran a  blind pig* at Eureka and boug*ht his  whiskey in Greenwood. He started to  cross onto the reservation at Nelson  but was captured by tJ. S. Collector  Boissonault. He had. over 50 gallons  of whisky at the line. Benson pleaded  guilty- 'wheni-liis,.case was called and  was sentenced as-above.���'  Boundary Valley   Lt>dge,  No. 38, I.O.O.F.

Flood's new block is near-  ing completion and the hall will be  ready for the Masons in about a week.  Mr. T. M. Gulley will use the ground  floor as a furniture store.  A warrant for the arrest of Theo.  Foust was sent from Idaho to Police  Mag*istrate Johnson of Grand Forks.  He, in turn, sent the warrant to Police  Magistrate Hallett of this city. As the  warrant was issued in Idaho it cannot  be served in this countrj-.  The fishing- season is now well opened and some g*ood baskets have been  secured in Kettle river and Boundary  Creek. L,ocal anglers are different  from those in other towns. Their  veracitj^ is unquestioned. Their statements respecting the number of fish  secured are always accepted without,  any misgivings. A Greenwood fisherman never exag-g-erates.  The   Queen's   Birthday   Celebration.  The question of having a celebration  on the Queen's birthday has been discussed by several during the week and  a public meeting* will be held nextweek,  probably on Wednesday, for the purpose of taking- some action regarding  the same. If it is decided that a celebration be held no time should be lost  in arrang*ing the details. It were better not to hold a celebration at all  unless it is in every way a success.  Telephone   Line.  The telephone line  between Marcus  and Eureka is now under way.   Several  men are at work  putting*  in   the poles  between   Marcus   and   Cascade   City.  An American company is building the  line on   the  American  side, while the  Nelson & Vernon Telephone Company  will connect on this side. The committee appointed by the Commercial  Association has already written to the  manager of the Nelson & Vernon coni-  panjr and it is hoped arrangements will  be made whereby Greenwood will  secure the advantag-es of telephone  connection.  gr-**cr-trgBWOga?u*.x  Awarded  Highest Honors���World's Fair,  Gold Medal, Midwinter Fair.

What a wonderfully rich district  Boundary Creek must be, since no discouraging railway news nor bad legislation shakes the confidence of the  -people in its resources or its ultimately  bright future. Although recent events  were calculated to discourage those  who have invested heavily in the district, preparations for active work this  summer are more vigorous and extensive than at the beginning of any previous season. Since the winter has  made way for delig-htful spring weather  prospectors have brought in their  horses from the ranges, secured their  outfits and have gone to the hills.  Mine-owners are making active preparations to develop their properties. Expensive machinery has been purchased  by several companies. Plants for the  Mother L,ode, the Stemwinder and the  Brooklyn are now on the way from the  Ea:st. Rfailwaj" or iio railway, a large  amount of work will ,be. earried on this  summer.  Greenwood* too, is having a healthy,  vigorous-growth. Carpenters are kept  busy erecting? new hotels, business  houses and residences. The town was  never the victim of a boom but its  growth has been steady, and to-day it  has twice the size and twice the population of Greenwood a year ago. In a  few days it is expected that the city  debentures will be sold at a good figure. The streets will then be improved  and waterworks will be constructed.  Taking everything into consideration,  the outlook for the coming summer is  very bright. "'  Cheap  Money,   for   Farmers.  If memory does not play us false, we  are strongly of the opinion that some  four years ago w^e heard something  about a scheme, to give the farmers  plenty of cheap money. We have a  dim recollection of hearing echoes of  the premier's strident voice as it aroused in the yeomen of Chilliwack the  .strong hope that they would be able to  lift "the: mortgages of their farms by  means of the cheap money which they  ���were to receive through the legislation  of ..a paternal government. This was  1'our years ago. The farmers are still  without their cheap money. But an  election   is in   sight  and promises are  again made. The artisan, the business man, everybody can enjoy the  advantages of the present scheme to  ���secure cheap money. An election is a  wonderful incentive to radical legislation.  Hotel Arrivals.

Robert Denzler, who spent the winter  in vSiDokane, returned .. to Greenwood  this week.  A. K. Stuart, collector of inland revenue, returned on Monday from Cascade City.  John Huff is rapidly recovering* from  the effects of falling* from the loft to  floor in livery stable.  W. A. Corbett, of Summit camp, left  this week on a trip to Princeton and  the Similkameen counti*}'.  Mr. J. F. Hemenway,. superintendent of the Old Ironsides is again able  to be about after a severe illness.  The Grand Forks Enabling- Bill has  been passed by the provincial legislature. A new election will be held in  the city.  Services will be conducted by Rev.  Mr. Guy at 11 o'clock Sunday morning  and again at 8 o'clock in the evening*.'  Sunday school-.will be held at 3 o'clock  in the afternoon.  Miller Bros, are clearing- the ground  for a two-storey building* on the coruer  of Copper and Greenwood streets. The  building- will be used by the firm for a  jewellery and drug-store.  Bishop Dart, in a letter to Aid. L,. S.  Moulton-Barrett, expressed the desire  that his thanks be conveyed to the  ladies of Greenwood for their hospitality during* his recent visit here.  I^ast Sunday evening* a sacred song-  service was.'held in Rendell & Co's.  hall. The selection was entitled" The  Man With the White Hat." The singing- by the choir was excellent, There  was a larg-e cong-reg-ation.  Messrs. Rendell & Co., desire to express their gratitude to those who  worked so willingly to save their premises from the fire of Thursday last.  They realize the fact that had it not  been   for   the assistance of   so   many  -willing* workers their store and valuable stock would have been destroyed  and consequently the firm feel grateful  to all who assisted.  Wm. Lewis left on Tuesday for Ash-  croft. He intends taking* the overland  route for the northern gold-fields. Mr.  Stanhope, who came Out from England  with Mr. Hodg*son, will probably join  Mr. I^ewis at Ashcrof t.  THE   RUSH   TO   KLONDYKE.  Dominion Veterinary Surgeon Christie returned on Wednesday from Osoyoos, where he had been kept busy for  a week examining* the horses of the  many arg*onauts who are rushing- to  the northern land of gold. During- the  week Dr. Christie passed 741 horses,  rejected 11, and ordered three killed.  The rejected and killed horses were  suffering* from lung- troubles.  The rush across the overland, route  appears to be as crazy as   it  possibly  can be.    The majority of the men have  plenty   of   horses,  but   little   money.  They do not seem to  know  how   they  are going to reach Yukon and care less.  Their objective point  is   Dawson City,  and the only way   station   they   know  anything- about is Ashcroft.    The long-  stretch of country intervening between  those two points is an unknown   territory to them and they do not appear to  appreciate the difficulties to be encountered.    The majority of  travellers are  happy-go-lucky fellows who are  satisfied so long-as they g-et  plenty   to eat.  When they get broke they sell a horse,  and under these conditions it is safe to  wager that they will never reach Dawson.    Dr. Christie returned to Osoj-oos  on Thursday, to   await   the   arrival of  about   1,000   horses   which   belong-   to  prospectors coming from Utah.  C.P.R.   EXPERTS.  J. H. Sussman of Montreal, mining  expert for the Canadian Pacific RailwayCompan}-, arrived in Greenwood  on Wednesday and will spend several  weeks examining properties in the district. Mr. Sussman is no stranger to  Boundary Creek district, having visited  here two years and also three years  ago. When asked if the. construction  of a railway by the C.P.R. would depend on his report, he replied in the  negative, as two years ago he reported  that a railway into this district would  pay, and there was not nearly as much  development work then as now. Mr.  Sussman is fully convinced that the  Canadian Pacific Company will commence the construction of a railway  into Boundary Creek at   an early date.  JLee Davenport, the C.P.R. smelter  man, is still hard at work examining  properties in the district.  H.   HALLETT,  QKamsfet, ^oftctfor,  NOTARY    PUBLIC.  GREENWOOD,    B.O.  'ORBES   M.

Mr.   Semliti,   the   leader of the  opposition in the provincial legislature  moved       the    following-    amendment  to the motion   for the   second  reading  of the redistribution bill :  Whereas, an equitable system of representation is the foundation of civil  and political liberty, and whereas the  present bill has been at defiance with  every principle of equity in representation ; therefore, be it  Resolved, That the present bill be  withdrawn and one doing justice to all  parts of the province be substituted  therefor.  The above amendment was defeated  by a vote of 12 "to 17 on Friday last,  Mr. Higgins voting with the government. The debate on the second reading began on Friday afternoon and  lasted until after midnight. Attorney-  G-eneral Eberts introduced the measure  and his speech was a remarkable one,  provoking the jeers and laughter of the  members. Referring to the Rossland  district, he made a sneering  reference  to the " small " portion of Bast Yale  which had been thrown into the Rossland district. He did not tell the house  that Boundary Creek district, the  small portion referred to, had twice the  area and twice the population of Esquimau, which is given two members.  Mr. Higgins supported the measure because this same Esquimalt had not  been robbed of a member.  The discussion continued until after  midnight, when the second reading  was carried on a division of 14 to 10.  Returned from the East.  Mr. J. B. Graves, the general manager of the Old Ironsides and Knob  Hill companies, arrived from Spokane  on Thursda5- and will remain in the  district for several da3rs. Mr. Graves  has just returned from the East, where  he spent the winter. He is greatly disappointed at the defeat of the Corbin  charter and expressed himself in  strong terms against the foolish policy  adopted by the   Dominion   parliament.  He believes Mr. Corbin will build  through the Reservation. In his opinion it was most absurd for parliament  to step in and say that a man should  not be allowed to spend a million-and-  a-half dollars of his own money.in this  country.. Mr. Graves has still the  greatest confidence in the Boundaryr  Creek district, and the work of developing the properties in which he is interested will be pushed with vigor.  Lincoln and City of Paris.  Henry White reports that development work is to be resumed immediately upon the L,in coin and City of  Paris. The snow is all gone from the  summit in White's camp, so that it is  now a comparatively easy matter to  get supplies in to the mines. Mr.  White intends employing a large force  of men. A tunnel is to be driven on  the Citv of Paris.  E. B. Simmons, of the  International  hotel, went to Republic this week.  vrafdi p  I?

'  DANGEROUS   PATRIOTISM.  - An act to, incorporate the South-east  Kootenay Railway- Co. came up for discussion  in   the provincial legislature.  In committee Dr.   "Walkem  introduced  an amendment  by which the company  is prevented   from going*   within   five  miles of  the   international   boundary.'  The insertion of  this  amendment-was  -stubbornly opposed, by Messrs. Cotton,  Kellie, Fester, Hume and. other members but the  supporters of the government  forced  its  passage.    The object  ���of   the   amendment is to  prevent   the  possibility of: the   company   securing*  railway   connection   from' the   South.  The  insane cry of " Canada for Canadians;"- becomes   serious if it is going  to prevent the opening up of  Southern  British Columbia by railways.    Under  the circumstances we can heartily sympathize with the people of Grand-Forks,  Carson   and  Midway,     and   sincerel}'-  trust that railway connection for these  towns shall not be dependent upon the  provincial   government.    Their   prox-  mity to the international boundary line  would be fatal.    We   believe   that   ah  effort  should be made to incarcerate a  number of the legislators   at  Victoria  in   the  New   Westminster asj-lum and  another effort made to  secure  legisla-  t rs who believe in "Canadians for Canada."    We  would  then have men who  would not waste their time attempting  to build a Chinese wall around Canada  but would seek to secure  the  development of the country   irrespective of ah  imaginary boundary line,   If this craze  grows,   legislation   is  sure to be introduced  prohibiting-   anyone from residing   within   live   miles  of the interna-  tional boundary line.  The   Winnipeg.  The Spokesman-Review publishes  the following interview with D. H.  Beecher   of  the   Winnipeg*   Company :  " David H. Beecher, president of the  Union National bank of Grand Forks,  N- D., and  one  of the   trustees of the  Winnipeg Mining and Smelting Company, operating the Winnipeg mine in  Wellington camp, Boundary Creek  division, .was in the city yesterday.  Lie has been visiting the property.  " The Winnipeg has 100 feet of development," said Mr. Beecher yesterday.  "We have a shaft down 100 feet, and  from that level a drift has been run  400 feet. Just as I was leaving, the  miiiersdiad encountered a chute of high  grade ore in the face -of,������������the drift..  They were into this rich ore body two  feet when I left. We keep a force of  10 or 12 men working night and day.  A shipment of five tons made about 30  7 days ago for a smelter test brought  returns of $75 per ton. The mine could  ship steadily if a railroad were built  into the district.  " Machinery for the Stemwinder and  Brboklyn mines is waiting at Boss-  burg and will soon be hauled to the  mines. This will add materially to fhe  prosperity of the district.  A   Storm   of  Protests.  The government is receiving, a  flood  of protests  against the redistribution  bill.-  Nearly every public body in   the  Kootenay country   has   denounced the  measure.    Yesterday- Mr. G.  R. Naden  received the following self-explanatory  telegram :  .  Nelson, April 25.���:Would Boundary  Creek join Nelson in telegraphing protests to Victoria against the redistribution bill, strongly urging a fair and  full representation for the Kooteriays ?  We have already wired an emphatic  .protest.  J. Roderick Robertson,  Secretary   South   Kootenaj-^   Board  of  Trade.      -  As the people of Boundary Creek had  already sent strong resolutions to the  government it was not considered necessary to take further action in the  direction indicated in Mr. Robertson's  telegram.   '      .;.  Greenwood   Hospital.  Tickets of admission to the Greenwood hospital for treatment can be secured on or after May 1st. The tickets  are sold at the low price of $2 a month  or $20 a 3rear. It is the duty of all residents of the district particularly miners and prospectors to insure for themselves careful treatment in case of illness by adopting the plan of being-  regular subscribers for hospital tickets.  No anti-Alien Legislation.  Braden's amendment to the Mineral  Act was thrown out on a technicality.  It will be remembered that he introduced a clause which prevented aliens  holding iniheral claims until they declared their intentions.

VICTORIA     B.C.  wnsmsm!!sm!imi&J?8kMnTi.9w&KMi*< ���  ���n  %>���:.'���  THE   B O U N D AR Y   GEE E K    TIME S,  FOR   ELECTION   PURPOSES   ONLY.  The Turner government has all the  artifices -of a politicalmountebank.  The people of Victoria are the victims  of that narrow provincial view from  which they treat all public matters.  This combination accounts for a good  deal of the peculiar legislation which  is introduced previous to a general  election.  i?or years the good people of Victoria  were dazzled by  the  shining  light  of  Mr. R. P. Rithet, a successful business  man and father of the British  Pacific  scheme.    The British  Pacific  railway  was  a  creature  of  Mr.   Rithet's.    He  gave it birth, nursed it,  fondled it and  hoodwinked the people of Victoria with  it.    The British Pacific   was  going to  bring wealth to every man in Victoria;  it was to be a connecting link between  the city on the gulf and  the  promised  land..   The British Pacific was used as  a stalkirig-hoTse throug*h   a half-dozen  elections   in   Victoria.      In   Dominion  elections, even, the scheme was trotted  out to help candidates who were unpopular themselves, who espoused a policy  that was discredited and who supported  a party that was shattered by internal  strifes.    The British   Pacific   outlived  its usefulness.    It has served   its  purpose.    Mr. Rithet is entitled   to  credit  for inventing a scheme that  did  effective political service through so   many  elections.    In an ordinary community  it might fool the people once,   but  not  oftener.    The people  of  Victoria  can  be gulled more successfully  and  more  frequently than those of any other section of the province ; but their credulity has a limit.    IDven they  have tired  of the British Pacific.  The Victoria people are ready, however, to fall down and worship a newer  and grander scheme than   the  British  Pacific.      The   opportunity   is   to   be  afforded  them.     The  Turner  government, the progressive wide-awake government "of this  province,   is  going to  build a railway from navigable  water  on the Pacific ocean to navigable water  on the Yukon.    The merchants of Victoria are to have a  direct line to carry  their wares  into   the  Yukon  country.  The scheme is so feasible.    No cantankerous senate can  interfere.    The province financiairy is like the   man   who  is so irretrievably in debt  that  he   assumes new obligations with that  recklessness which  springs  from  the   certainty that he can never pa}-.    It is a  glorious   scheme,   one  that  would   do  credit to the ingenuity of even a Rithet.  Everything goes in   Victoria.    The intelligent electors will vote for the government that is going to  build   a  railway to the Klondyke.    It is   a  scheme  that is good for more than one election.  The people like   to   be   humbugged !  Victorians have an   insatiable   passion  for being* humbugged !    Turner knows  their weakness and he trades upon it.

Greenwood had another narrow  escape from destruction by fire on  ^Tuesday morning when Mr. G. R.  Naden's and Messrs. Rendell & Co's.  stables were completely burnt. The  .stables adjoined each other. No one  knows how the fire started. Smoke  was noticed coming from Mr. Naden's  stable about nine o'clock and soon the  building was a mass of flames. About  200 willing workers congregated and  forming a bucket brigade succeeded in  saving the valuable business houses in  the vicinity. Rendell & Co's. large  store, the, Bealey Investment & Trust  Co's. bank, Police Magistrate Hallett's  office and Aid. Barrett's residence were  ��� in the most dangerous positions. In  the stables was a quantity of baled hay  and oats, .which added fuel to the  flames. At the time the fire was discovered Mrs. Naden's pretty saddle  horse was tied in the stable. It became almost suffocated with the smoke  and it was only after considerable difficulty that the unfortunate animal was  rescued.    It was rather badly burnt.  The wind in the morning was shifting*  and treacherous. It came up in fierce  gusts from every quarter, driving the  flames towards Mayor Wood's and Mr.  McMann's residences, then towards  Aid. Barrett's and again towards Rendell & Co's. andthe bank, It looked  for awhile as if Aid. Barrett's fine new  residence was going to burn up like its  predecessor, but the bucket brigade did  effective work under the guidance of  Capt. Nelson and the other officers of  the Volunteer Fire Department.  The " Fire Crazy " individual, the  gentleman who throws crockery out of  the upstairs window and carries the  bed clothes tenderly and carefully down  the stairs, was unfortunately not conspicuous by his absence. He was very  much in evidence. His lunacy went  unchecked and in consequence two or  three were rather seriously injured.  Mr. Keith the principal of the school  suffered most. A fair haired Teuton  wearing* a populistic beard secured a  position on the ridge of Rendell & Go's.  store and from there shouted at the tot)  of his voice and fired water buckets on  the crowd below. One of these galvanized iron buckets struck Mr. Keith on  the head, and he is now wearing* four  or five stitches as a reminder that the  man who gets the fire fever is often  more dang-erous than the fire itself.  Mr. Modg-ridge and one or two others  also carry wounds from flying water  b tickets.  The loss is considerable. The stables  were frame and in Mr. Naden's was  one g-entleman's and two ladies' saddles, and other articles of value. Rendell &-Co. lost harness, etc. Several  prospectors' outfits were also destroyed.  There was no insurance.  The necessity for a building to store  buckets, ladders and other articles belonging- to the department was apparent. The volunteer firemen are handicapped in their efforts by reason of  their not knowing* where to find the  ladders and buckets.  The regular weekly meeting of the  city council was held in the courthouse oh Monday evening. His Worship Mayor Wood presided, and all the  aldermen excepting Aid. Parry were  present.  G. H. Ford was granted permission  to cross Government and Copper streets  with pipe for barber shop. Miller  Bros, were also granted permission to  use the street while erecting their  block.    .. ��� '  Mr. Henderson, the manager of the  Bank of Montreal, wrote' stating that  the bank would advance $5,000 temporarily, as soon as the cit}r accepted an  offer, for the debentures.  Aid. Phelan introduced a Public  Morals by-law. It was read a first and  second time and considered in committee. The by-law provides easy machinery for dealing summarily with  offences in the city. It will be finally  passed at the next meeting of the  council.  s Aid. Galloway introduced two Rate  by-laws,���one for ordinary taxation  and the other to provide money to meet  the interest and sinking fund on debentures. After being read a second time/  their further consideration was deferred until the finance committee,  city treasurer and city clerk prepare  ah estimate of expenditure for the current year. ���  Council then adjourned.  Court of Revision.  The municipal court of revision was  held on Monday last. All the members  of the court, namely, Mayor Wood arid  Aldermen Kerr, Paton, Barrett and  Phelan, were present. The only appeal against the assessor's roll was  from F. Flkins, who considered the  assessment of his lots on X/ong Lake  street too high. The court held that  the assessment was similar to that of  other lots in the vicinity, and decided  that no reduction should be made.  The court adjourned until evening,  when Mr. Garland was present to discuss the assessment of the Mamont  mineral   claim,    owned   by   him   and  which has recently been surveyed into  town lots. The assessment for this  property was fixed at $700 an acre for  12 acres on the bottom, and the mountain sides at $5 an acre. The assessment roll was then accepted and the  court adjourned.  Death  of  W.   M. I Paton.  Oil   Sunday   last   Aid.   W. B. Paton  cind brother received   the sad  news of  their father's  death which occurred on  the  13th   inst. at the hospital, Vernon.  Aid. Paton had intended  going  up  to  Spallumcheen to visit his father on the  Tuesday following   his   death and was  naturally shocked to learn of his demise  and burial on Saturday.    The deceased  gentleman, W.M. Paton, had   been   a  resident of Spallumcheen  for 14 years.  He was a native of Scotland and at one  time was'one of the leading* flax merchants in Great Britain. He was in his  76th year. He left four sons and two  daughters. Aid. Paton went up to  Spallumcheen on Tuesday.  Circulating Library  -'   -���-Q^$*=��>��� -���  Subscription, SOc. per Month.

Greenwood was visited this week by  a distinguished gentleman who shortly  after his arrival made the acquaintance of License Collector Taylor and  City Solicitor Black. The individual  in question registers under an unpronounceable name and as space is limited, The Times will not attempt to publish it. He introduced himself as a  -direct descendant of Joseph Brant, a  nephew of Dr. Oronyatheka and a relative of other distinguished Mohawks.  He claimed all the privileges granted  to the Six Nations and treats with indifference the restrictions that have  been heaped upon them by a paternal  .governmerit...' He treated the boys and  drank with them contrary to the letter  and the spirit of the Indian Act. He  showed a fondness for alliterative sentences for he told his sympathetic hearers that the city solicitor was a "long-  legged lawyer." He also showed a dislike for city by-laws and the license on  those selling goods by retail. He was  no stranger to the work of evading city  ordinances and after having been  solicited for a license he made arrangements with the drug store to sell his  " cure alls " while he confined his attention to advertising his wares on the  street  corners.    The  tax collector cor-  0" '  dially invited him to visit the Police  Magistrate's office on Wednesday morning and Mr. Black was present to introduce him to His Honor. Several  gentlemen who had subscribed one  dollar each for the Indian doctor's  " elixir " were also present. Being the  first case under the by-law, the Police  Magistrate declined to give his ultimatum until1' Thursday morning. Police  Magistrate Hallett on Thursday morning held that the doctor had successfully evaded the by-law and that it was  impossible to convict. The doctor considered discretion the better part of  valor however and he left for pastures  new early Thursday morning.  Mr.   Hodgsoa   Returns.  Mr. G. T. Hodgson, of the firm of  Barrett & Hodgson, returned on Sunday from   a   six months' visit to  Eng  land.  During  his absence Mr. Hodg  son was married and upon his return  received the congratulations of his  many friends in Boundary Creek district. He was accompanied from the  Old Country by Mr. Stanhope who  intends investing in mining properties  in the west.  Shipment of Ore.  In a few days ore will be shipped  from the Strathmore, near Greenwood.  The Strathmore, which is, owned by  Aid. Galloway, is best known as the  San Bernard. Mr. McVicar has a contract for taking out  ore.    The  Strath-  r ���  more ore will average over $100 to the  ton, so that after excessive freight  charges are paid there is still a handsome profit.    b ,   i,  Carl Nelson of Kaslo and R. Robinson are developing the Northern Belle  and Golden Giant claims on Pass  creek. Work on the claims will be  continued for about two months.

Prospectors are daily going up the  West Fork and the travel in this direction is heavier than it has ever been  before.  A g*reat number of horses have been  lost in this district this spring. It is  supposed that a number of them have  been stolen and taken on the overland  route to Klondj-ke. Horse rustlers are  plentiful in the district. Three g'ood  horses also died last week, one a valuable animal belonging to J. Sullivan  and another to Mr. Nash.  J. Coryell is going- up Canyon creek  to survey some claims for W. H}. Gutt-  ridge.

Foust is  Free.  Theo.   Foust   is   again  a   free   man.  L,ast week he was arrested   in   Eureka  by an American officer.   While the officer   was   taking*   him   through   Grand  Forks,  he  appealed  for  protection  to  the British authorities.    Police-magistrate Johnson remanded him for  eight-  days, to give American officers  an   opportunity to secure warrant and extradition  papers.    Deputy  Attorney-General Smith wired the police-magistrate  to release Foust.    Officer Iyawder  had  him arrested for stealing*  lumber from  the Greenwood sawmill.    It transpired  that the theft consisted' of "expropriating a board to cover a box when Foust  and family   went   to   Fureka.    Police-  magistrate Hallett intimated   that   his  court was not to   be   used   for   ulterior  purposes, and as there was. no evidence  to   sustain    a   charge   of    larceny   he  promptly dismissed the case, at the request of Mr. Black who acted for Foust.  It appears that the American officers  are not very anxious to   secure   Foust.  The reward for his capture  is   $25,   instead of $2,500,   and he   is   wanted  for  trouble in connection with the   miners'  strikes in the Coe.ur d'Alene country.
