[SPECIAL  CORKESPONPSNCE.]  Ottawa,   March  17.���It was  rather  a strange  coincidence that the bitterest fig*ht that was ever waged in the  railway committee of the House of Commons, began on St.  Patrick's Day.    It was rather  flattering* to  the  Boundary  Creek  district  that it should  be the subject of this wordy  warfare.    For the first time, the portly fig-ure of Sir William  Van  Home was seen in the committee room, and for the  first time his voice was heard  ag*ainst the granting- of a  railway  charter.    Usually   such   matters   are  left  by   the  Canadian   Pacific   Railway   company   to   Judge   Clark,   to  whom I made reference in a previous letter.    But the C. P.  R.   are  so  anxious  to  shut   out   any competition   in   the  Boundary   Creek   district,   that   the   great   and   only   Sir  William made his appearance and addressed the committee.  If Sir William were not a better railway man than he is a  public speaker, he would never have become the president  of the Canadian Pacific Railway company.    If the C. P. R.  company had been  anxious to use arguments against the  Corbin   charter,   Judge Clarke would  have addressed   the  committee;    but   arguments   being*   difficult   to   find,   Sir  William showed himself to the committee.    He talked for  half an hour;   he said nothing-.    He intended to  impress  the committee with his importance, not by his speech.    Did  he succeed?   Time will tell.    The further consideration of  the  Kettle  River  Railway   bill  was   deferred   until   next  Tuesday.    The bill was in charge of Mr. Hewitt Bostock,  M. P.    He contented himself  with   introducing  Mr. 1$. V.  Bodwell   to   the   committee.'   Mr.   Bodwell's   speech   was  carefully prepared.    He boiled down all the arg-uments in  favor of the road, as there was only a short time at his  disposal.    He was congratulated on  all sides, and such a;  competent critic as Mr. J. S. Willison, the manag-ing* editor  of the Toronto Globe, claimed that it was the strong-est and  most businesslike statement that was ever delivered to the  railway committee, who generally hear with impatience the  arg-uments used by charter promoters,and seldom applauding  any one.  The Rev. George R. Maxwell, the erudite and erratic  member for Burrard, arose, not to speak, but to inform the  committee that Sir William Van Home was present to  oppose the granting* of the charter. Sir William was  granted leave to speak. His portly, lumbering* form made  its way slowly to the front, the members of the committee  wondering* why the railway mag*nate, the railway czar of  -the Dominion, should consider it necessary for him to  personally appear in opposition to the granting* of a charter  -for seventy-five miles of railway.  Sir William regretted that he was forced to appear  before the railway committee for the first time, particularly  because he was opposing- a gentleman and one who was a  bona fide railway builder, not a subsidy-hunter nor charter-  monger. Mr. Corbin, to whom he referred, built and  operated railwa3rs successfully. But Sir William would be  unfaithful to the Dominion and the C. P. R. if he did not  raise his voice against the granting of a charter that would  divert trade from the Boundary Creek district into American  channels. Sir William held that Boundary creek was the  richest mining district in the known world; that if the  Corbin road was built it would take $100,000,000 into the  United States within the next ten years. Sir William  called Mr. Bodwell's arguments humbug and was promptly  oalled down by Mr. Bodwell. Sir William treated the facts  in connection with the case with the same slight consideration that his company gives to the people of Canada. He  told   the committee   that  Americans   owned  the   mines   in  Boundary creek, that they wanted an American road to  build up their own country, but his most remarkable  argument was that Corbin had the best route and could  build twice as cheaply as the G.'P. R., and could operate  twice as cheaply. If the government wished to ruin the C.,  P. R. it would grant the Corbin charter. The C. P. R.  would make every sacrifice to secure the Boundary creek  trade.  Mr. Corbin was asked to speak; and tie made a short,  businesslike, gentlemanly statement that appeared to carry  inore weight than Sir William's bluster. When Mr. Corbin  concluded it was 1 o'clock, the time for adjournment.  Corbin will get the charter. T maintained so all along,  and notwithstanding Sir William's personal opposition, I  maintain so still. The committee were -with us to-day,  overwhelmingly with us. It is hard telling what influence  the C. P. R. will use in the meantime, but my opinion is  that they can neither bribe nor bulldoze the committee into  granting the C. P. R. a monopoly in Boundary creek.  i7��     ��&     $,'<  ^ji>        Irif ?tf  '/if  '/if  '/If  THE   KETTLE   RIVER   RAILWAY.  Editorial hi Toronto Globe of March 18th>  The Railway Committee of Parliament should have very  little difficulty in coming-to a conclusion on the application  for a charter for the Kettle River Railway. It is understood that the company asks no bonus or any other public  aid towards their enterprise ; the section otcountry which it  is proposed to serve is badly in need of a railway : two circumstances which make a strong prima facie case why a  charter should be granted. A proposition to build, a railway in this country without public aid is so pleasingly  startling and is altogether so welcome an innovation that  instead of meeting those who make it with any thing resembling-hostility we should at the very least give them every  opportunity of carrying out their project. The argument  is used that the proposed railway will connect with the  American systems, which will make Spokane or some other  United States city the natural entrepot of the Boundary  country,   giving  American merchants   and  manufacturers  an advantage over their Canadian rivals there. It will be  seen that Mr. Corbin, who is the leading spirit of this project, and who already owns a line running across theborder  into Rossland, produced evidence that 90 per cent, of the  goods he carries into that town and neighborhood is of  Canadian origin, and he argues from this that the same  would be the case with the goods carried to the Boundary  country.  The Boundary country, which this projected railway  will traverse, has immense deposits of ore, some of it no  doubt low grade. But away to the north of it, up the various  forks of the Kettle river, is a country which is only now  . being invaded by prospectors. The head water of these  forks, it is asserted, has never been explored by the white  man, and, so far as there are any records, even by the red.  The fringe of it that has been prospected shows so encouraging a distribution of minerals that every season further  inroads have been made into it and hundreds of claims have  been staked. If the realization has any relation to the  promise there should be plent3r of business for a railway,  and if it is carried on to Okanagan I^ake a southern exit  would be given to a large section of farming and ranching  lands which border on that body of water. Parliament  should take precautions that the Canadian clients of the  road shall be able to use it on as good terms as its American  clients, and the company's offer to give as low rates to any  Canadian as to any American smelter should be accepted  and made secure, and, indeed, any other terms that would  be advantageous to the community through which it runs,  and that it would be fair to impose on the railway, should  be exacted. Parliament's only other duty is to make sure  that the promoters mean business and will give the country  the railway facilities it heeds at the earliest possible  moment. THE   BOUNDARY   CREEK   TIMES.  ��� 1 Til  NOTES   FROM   OTTAWA.  [SPECIAL CORKESPONDENCE.]  Ottawa, March 22nd.���Those interested in the passage of the bill incorporating the Kettle Rivers Rail way  Company were disappointed again today. A local bridge company had a  bill before the railway committee, and  as there was considerable opposition,  the two hours at the disposal of the  committee were spent, sp that the Kettle River bill was not reached. However, arrangements were made whereby  the Kettle River bill is the first on the  order paper for Thursday, and it is  confidently expected that a vote will  be reached on that day. The Boundary  Creek delegation, who are anxious to  g-et home, were not the only persons  disappointed. The C. P. R. officials  were present in greater numbers than  at the preceding meeting. Sir William  Van Home, Vice-president G'Shaugh-  nessy, Judg-e Clarke and Mr. Tait represented the big corporation, and they  were as anxious for the fight to reach  a conclusion as anyone.  Sir William, not satisfied with addressing the railway committee, has  written a letter. It was addressed to  the editor of the Toronto Globe and  expresses the most profound astonishment that Canada's greatest daily  should dare to support the Kettle River  Valley road. The Globe replied in an  editorial that was, if a^'thing,  stronger than the leader in which it  first advocated the granting of a char-  . ter to". Mr. Corbin. The Globe's position on this question disposes of the  absurd contention that it is in anyway  under the control of the C.P.R. Although the Globe supported the giving"  of the Crow's Nest railway to the  C.P.R.., it did so for public reasons and  not because its policy was dictated by  the C.P.R. The strong fight it is making in the interests of the public for  the Kettle River road conclusive^*  proves this.  Sir William's speech before the railway committee, opposing the Kettle  River Railway charter, is being ridiculed by the leading newspapers of  Ontario. The Toronto Telegram puts  it this way: "Usually Sir William  Van Horne talks to the railway committee through his lawj'er, but on  Thursday last he talked through his  hat !" I am still of the opinion that  the Kettle River Valley Railway charter will be granted, i  Mr. J. E. Boss has been here for a j  week. He has purchased machinery- i  which will be shipped immediately and j  used in the development of the Stem- I  winder and Brooklyn mines. The ma- j  chinery includes two boilers and two j  hoists, with all other incidentals. Mr. !  Boss tells me that the development of j.  the Stemwinder and BrookU'u will be !  activeh* pushed this summer.  Mr. Andrew Kelly, the vice-president j  of the Brandon & Golden Crown Com- j  pany, is in Ottawa. He is anxious to j  see Corbin secure his charter. j  t  I saw Mr. Johnston, one of the  own- ���  ers of the Gold Bug, in   Montreal.    He i  says that they will work   the   mine   as j  soon as a railway is assured. j  Mr. Rufus Pope, M.P.,   Mr.   Turner,  and other shareholders in the Old Ironsides and Knob Hill, were also seen.  They a;re well satisfied with the development work being carried on on the  properties and are working" to secure  the Corbin charter.  SUMMIT    CAMP.  On the B. C. the shaft is down 130  feet in splendid ore. The company is  also drifting from the shaft. The B.  C. was located in 1896 by A. R. Fing-  land and W. Shaw, and has perhaps  the best showing-s of any claim in the  district. Assays run nearly 20 per  cent, in copper. The claim is under  bond for $60,000.  On the R. Bell there is a shaft 45  feet in depth and a crosscut of 14 feet  from the shaft to strike the ledge.  About 200 feet south of this shaft is  another 80 feet in depth. From this  shaft it was intended to crosscut to tap  the ledg-e, but it had to be abandoned  on account of water. This difficulty  will be overcome when machinery is  installed on the claim. The R. Bell  was located in May 1895 by John Kehoe,  and has since been stocked. The ore  in the R. Bell is similar in character to  that on the B. C.  The Cordick, an adjoining" claim to  the R. Bell, was located by J. Cordick  in 1894. About $700 has been expended  in work on this claim, consisting- of  two shafts 45 and 18 feet in depth, and  considerable outside work. The Cordick has been crown granted.  The Ontario was located by W. Shaw  in. 1895. Sufficient work has been done  on the claim to entitle the owner to a  crown grant. At present a shaft is  being" sunk. Previous work consisted  of prospecting for the ledg-e. It is  claimed that the B. C. ledge runs  through the Ontario. This view is  evidently held by Mr. Shaw, the owner,  as the claini is not on the market.  The Wake was located in 1895 by  Thos. Wake and Jas. Atwood. On this  claim considerable open work has been  done, giving good surface showing's.  The Duplicate is a relocation of the  Victoria, made in 1895, and owned by  J. McNicol, W. Shaw and W. B. Rick-  ards. The claim has an excellent location, but no work to speak of has been  done on it. Adjoining and between  the Duplicate and Josie is the Triplicate, a fractional claini located October  1897 by W. Shaw and J. McNicol. On  this claim there are good surf ace showings.  The Josie. was located in 1896 by J.  W. Young* and is owned by Rog*ers,  Young* and others. On the claim a  shaft has been sunk 90 feet. Some of  the ore taken from the Josie carries  native copper, and is looked upon as a  very promising* property.  In the estimates placed before the  legislature last week, the proposed expenditure for the administration of  justice in the province is set down at  $295,608, and that for educational purposes $280,622. This has been the  trouble in British Columbia, too much  justice (?) and not enough of education.  A system that requires a greater expenditure on constables, jails, etc.,  than teachers and schools, must be  wrong* somewhere.  a Business  ��     e     ��  EH  9      9      9  A Typewriter is a Necessity-  it pays to buy the Best.

The  machinerj- for the Knob Hill will also  be here in a short time.  M. W. L*aw returned from the Coast  this week. He will open up a general  store business in the Barrett block,  Copper street, about the middle of next  week.  Since the railway agitation commenced the Coryell mining map of  Boundary district is in great demand,  a large number having" been ordered  from the east.  John Jackson, of Midway-, returned  this week from a trip to the Columbia  river and Colville. He purchased some  thoroughbred Jersey cattle for his  dairy farm while away.  Joe Wiseman of Grand Forks, fell  v and broke his ankle on Copper street  Tuesday. He was carried to the Commercial. Dr. Foster of the hospital  set the broken limb on Wednesdajr  morning.  The.many friends of Joe Sinister and  Gren Cartmel, formerly of this district  will be pleased to hear that the}' have  made a clean-up in Fureka camp, they  having sold a one-half interest in the  Ivost Ivode for $25,000.  On Saturday last Thomas Paterson,  a rancher near, Rock Creek, was  brought to the hospital suffering* from  pneumonia, and died on Wednesday  evening*. The deceased was a native  of Renfrew county, Ont., and was 28  years of age. He had been in this  country for about 7 years, in the ranching* business in partnership with A.  Gillis, and was highly respected by  those who knew him. The remains  were interred here on Friday.  A. number of prospectors are preparing" to g*o into the Pass creek country,  to do assessment work. Pass creek  bids fair to be a lively camp this season.'' '.-''.,,  J. H. Macfarlane is making preparations to continue development work On  the Sunset in Deadwood camp as soon  as the cabins, now being built, are  finished, which will be about the end-  of next week.  A. Gillis and; J. Lindsay of Rock  Creek came to Greenwood oh Thursday to take charg-e of the arrangements for the burial of Thos. Patterson., They had been intimate friends  of the deceased since he came to the  district.   '������<,  F. Miller, a miner working on the  Golden Crown, Wellington camp, had  one of his eyes severely injured by a  piece of rock striking- it last week. He  is now in the hospital for treatment,  but it is probable he will lose the sig-ht  of one eye.  The first number of the Republic  Pioneer, the new publication at Fureka  camp, was issued the past week by  Cleveland and Drake. The Pioneer is  newsy and fairly weir patronized by  advertisers. The Times wishes the  Pioneer a larger and richer pay chute  as development continues.  Yesterday was All Fool's Day, and a  number of jokes were played, everyone  taking a hand in the fun. The editor  of the Midway Advance could have  played a good joke on the community  by issuing* on the 1st of April, and calling* the publication a newspaper. It  was the opportunity of a lifetime  missed.  c- ���������  A resolution was passed at the meeting* of the Mining" and Commercial  Association on Wednesday evening*,  forming the association into a committee of the whole to secure the registration of voters. An active canvass is to  be made, and all qualified will be asked  to register at once. The qualifications  are, British subject, one year in province, and two months in district. Persons wishing* to become.voters should  call on A. S. Black, solicitor, Government street, and register. No charges  will be made.  T. W. Gillette, of Fairhaven, Wash.,  secretary of the Everett and Spokane  Mining Company, arrived in the city  on Wednesday's stage from Grand  Forks. Mr. Gillette is a mining* man  of large experience, having been for  years in the mining camps of California, Texas and New Mexico, and is interested with Mr. A. G. Davis in the  Rambler group of claims. Mr. Gillette  has not been in Boundary district for  two years, and is much pleased with  the progress made since he was last  here.  W. J. Barker, who has for some time  been foreman on the Jewel in L/ong  Ivake camp, left on Friday morning- for  the Slocan to take charge of work on  the Vancouver group' of claims near  Silverton, B. C. Mr. Barker is a practical miner and thoroug-hly understands  his business. Mine Inspector McDonald, while here said that the Jewel  was the best timbered shaft he had  seen in the country, both for convenience and safet3'. The -many friends  of Mr. Barker will wish him every success in the Slocan. He remains in the  service of the company in whose employ he has been for the past year.  Greenwood City, B.C, is experiencing- a business and riiining* booni.  Travel that way is brisk in spite of  the deplorable condition of the roads.���  Republic Pioneer.  Geo. F. Miller returned this week  from Deer creek on main Kettle river,  where he has been -putting up cabins  on his pre-emption. On Canyon, Cedar  and Deer creeks, considerable development work is being* done. The bond  on the Silver Dollar, Canyon creek,was-  not taken up. This is one of the best  showing-s in the Kettle river country.  The ledge is about 14 feet in width and  averag-e assays run over $20 in g*old to  the ton. Fd Sullivan has a stopping-  place for travelers on Cedar > creek.  Quite a number of prospectors are g*o-  ing into the district and up the West  Fork. .';  Frequently letters come to this office  from eastern points and the  old   country, asking for information about British Columbia, what the chances are for  a young-   man   in   this   country,etc,  British Columbia is a hard proposition  to describe  on   a postal  card or in ah  ordinary  letter,  and the  average person has not time to devote to a  full  description of the  resources  of the province.    As to  the  chances  for a young'  man in the west, much depends on  the  young .''man..'.   If  he  is   the kind   that  travels on his shape, he will  probably  come  under   the   care   of   the   police,  sooner or later, unless he has sufficient  pull to g-et a government  position.    If  he has a coat that will come off when a.  job  is  offered,  the  chances  are   very  g-ood for three meals a day.  A   communication   appeared   in   the  Vancouver World the past week which  indicates a sore  head  on   the  part  of  the   correspondent.    In   railway   matters,   the  residents  of  Boundary   district are almost unanimously in favor ������'  of a charter being granted to Corbin.  The dramatic entertainment given in  Rendell's hall was one means by which  money was raised to send a delegate to  Ottawa to  look  after  the railwav in-  terests of the  district.    Those   attending the entertainment appeared to be  satisfied    with    the   amusement, furnished..   In reg-ard to the other part of  the communication, the   World  correspondent may   have   given   the 'matter,  a more careful study than the majority   ,  of the   residents   of   Greenwood.

Recognizing  the fact however that the abuse in  question was prompted only by envy,  hatred and malice,   and penned  by an  itinerant printer who   by  accident   of  fortune was pressed into service at the  last '.moment, and when no more responsible'party could be procured to fill the  position of editor on the publication in  question,   during-   the   absence  of the  regular  editor  for  a  week or  two at  Ottawa,   we can afford without loss of  dignity, to decline taking any   extended notice of   the same.    Knowing that  the publishers of a paper  are responsible for   whatever   utterances may   appear in its columns, and   realizing the  fact that personal abuse has   been for-  eigfh to the g-eneral tone of the Boundary Creek Times since its incipiency,  we, can afford as far as we are concern-,  'edj'and'  under  the. circumstances,   to  treat  the owners  of  the   Times   with  charitable consideration.   For a further  justification of our remarks we refer our  readefs to the next issue of the Boundary Creek Times:"  Rossland.  mi fru  Greenwood.

It has been reserved for the present  provincial administration to devise a  method of government absolutely  unique in the records of constitutional  g-overnments in the British empire. It  may be designated as "government by  points of order." The method has  much to recommend it for adoption b}-  g-overnments deficient in abilitj^; lacking in talents for debate or argument ;  without, any settled conviction on a  single subject" wilhout firmness or  moral courage. It will therefore be  easily seen what a boon the discover}^  of such a method must have proved to  the Turner government, and it is not  surprising that it shows a disposition  to ride the willing horse to death  A perusal of the reports of the legis.  lature during the session will show  that the g-overnmerit has scarcely ventured to meet the opposition squarel}*  on any issue raised by the latter. Attempts have been made to prevent a  debate by securing a ruling that tlie  question was out of order. If this was  not successful then some member was  induced to move a six months' hoist.  Courage or fair play seems to be a  qualit}' not possessed by the present  administration.--Vancouver News-Advertiser.  T Iflf" TMffffTiTBl'J*Tla.*y>fflfT:*'��HWJT^^  A. Fisher;  KdU.

The latest news in reference to railway matters  appeared in  the  Spokes-  lnan^Review  of the 30th of March.    It  was stated that Hon. A. G.  Blair, inin-  ister of railways and canals, had spoken  in  favor  of the Corbin  charter,   and  would support  it.    This  would  insure  -the  passing- of  the  bill.    The    Kaslo  Board of Trade also favors the Corbin  ���charter.    The following" is the dispatch  from Ottawa :    "The  Kaslo Board  of  Trade yesterday unanimously  adopted  a resolution   endorsing*  Mr. ��� Gorbin's  application for a  charter to the Kettle  River Railway company.    The   resolution was  wired   to  Ottawa.    It   states  that the Kaslo Board of Trade strongly  dissents from the resolution of the legislature     of    British    Columbia,   and  ���expresses  its accord  with   the  resolutions of the boards of trade of  Nelson,  Rossland and other interior towns.    In  transmitting  the resolution  to Representative Bostock at Ottawa, President  Buchanan wrote :  "We remember the struggle we had  in former years to secure the right for  the Nelson & Fort Sheppard to come  in and we are willing to speak a word  tor a sister community now opposed in  its wishes by the same influence, and  ���oh'.the same ground that we were opposed then. Of course, we are anxious  that provision should be. made for advantageous rates over Corbin\s road to  British Columbia points, and we are  also in favor of every encourag-ement  being extended to the Canadian -Pacific  railway to complete at the earliest possible moment their connection into the  Boundary country."  Ik the Provincial legislature, on Mr.  Helmcken's motion opposing* the granting* of a charter to the Corbin system,  the vote stood 20 for and 10 ag-ainst.  Mr. Williams of Vancouver and the  Hon. David Higgins voted   for the mo  tion, otherwise the vote was a straig-ht  party one, the government supporting*,  and the, opposition opposing  the   resolution.    Mr. Graham, member for East  Yale made the strongest speech ag-ainst  the resolution.   He said in part: "Very  g-ood reasons could be  shown   why the  Kettle River Valley railway  should be  g-iven   a   charter  and   built   into   the  Boundai-y   country.    He  reminded the  house that in a great   many  instances  it had granted charters for railways to  cross the international boundary.    He  instanced the Great  Northern railway  company's, connection with New Westminster, the Canadian Pacific railway  connection at Mission, the Red  Mountain railway  from  Rossland to North-  port, and the Nelson & Fort  Sheppard  railway from Nelson to the boundary.  In the case  of  the  Boundary district,  he said it was urg*eiit  that  the  Kettle  River railway receive a charter at once.  He said that the requirements and possibilities of the district were  such that  in a very   few  years  no single line of  railway would   be   able  to handle the-  traffic of that  section.    He  predicted  that if the Kettle river road was  built  into    Boundary   there    would   be   an  immense increase in the revenue of the  district."  That org*anic specimen, the Vancouver World, says, in its last issue :  " Ivet it be known far and near that  those who are desirous of giving away  the natural wealth which this province  possesses, and the people's inheritance  are the Opposition." And this has  reference to the attitude of the Opposition on Mr. Helmcken's resolution calling* upon the Dominion .government  to refuse a charter to the Kettle River  Valley Railway, which seeks to enter  the Boundary country from the .south,  and asks not a cent of public money  nor a rod of the " peojDle's inheritance." The Opposition opposed the  putting through of Mr. Helmcken's  resolution until some information could  be obtained on the subject; but, with a  sig-nificant solicitude for the interests  of the C. P. R., the g*overnment insisted on the legislature "going it blind "  and passing the resolution, anyhow.���  Columbian.  IT   IS   IMMENSE.  A. A. Booth, deputy U. S. mineral  surveyor of Spokane, and Peter L<ux,  an experienced Colorado miner, returned to town last evening* after a  trip to Torodo creek. They are intensely enthusiastic over what they  saw. there. " The mineral formation  is marvellous," remarked Mr. Booth.  "We saw'four great ledges during* our  brief stziy. The little work already  done indicates remarkably extensive  and rich deposits of g*old-bearing ore."  " If one ledge in. ten is as rich, as the  surface prospects indicate, the district  will surpass Cripple Creek," added Mr.  L/u::.���Republic Pioneer.  J. A. Coryell and T.

He was evidently bent on a  prospecting trip.  the politicians who are opposing them  may not get what they want at the  coming election.

The Franchise bill introduced b}r Mr.  Fitzpatrick provides that the qualifications necessary to entitle aii3r person  to vote thereat shall be those established by the laws..of that province as necessary to entitle such persons to vote  in the   same   part  of the province at a  provincial election ; and that if the provincial lists are more than a year old  new lists shall be prepared for the  Dominion elections. This arrangement seems to be simple, inexpensive  and fair.  Thursday was dog tax day, and the  the collector did a large business,  nearly all the curs in the city being  transformed into valuable animals. THE   BOUNDARY   CREEK   TIMES.  COUNCIL   MEETING.

B--^  Si  THE   BOUNDARY   CREEK    TIMES/  NOTES.  The speech of Sir William Van  Home, president of the Canadian  Pacific Railway company, before the  private bills committee, should prove  to be a splendid advertisement of the  Boundary Creek mines. He said that  "Boundary Creek *was the richest mining*  district in the known world," and  that if the Corbin charter were granted  the "road would in the next ten years,  take $100,000,000 out of Canada." A  pretty g-ood recommendation for the  district itself.  It is often the duty of a newspaper,  to criticize the public policy of an administration or the public acts of an  official. It is also necessary at times  to mention the names of officials in,  criticizing- their public acts. During*  the absence of the editor at Ottawa,  The Times has not said a word in  reference to the private acts or character of any one.    In the public   interest  it has freely and independently referred to the public acts of officials and  censured when censure was needed. If  this can be construed as indulg-ing in  personalities, then an'experience of a  quarter of a century in newspaper  work has been thrown away.  Some arrang-enients should be made  by which the mail could be sent on  from Grand Forks to Greenwood by  the morning-stag-e the day following-  its arrival at that place. I^ast fall the  people west ; of Boundary mountain  were g*iven to understand that a daily  mail would be carried between Grand.  Forks and Midway after the 1st of Jan-  iiar3r. Afterwards this contract was  modified, making- the service daily to  Greenwood and tri-weekly to Midway.  The mail^ for some reason unknown to  the public, is held over a day at Grand  Forks and then forwarded to Greenwood. This is not only an inconvenience to Greenwood, but also to the  people of Midway and other points  north and west of that place. Something* should be done by the postoffice  inspector to remedy this.  What   about a convention ?    Whose  duty is it to make   a   move in the matter ?    Is each one afraid of  his  neighbor ? " Are all the electors possible candidates and afraid of injuring- probable  chances of election ?    What is the matter -with the   mayor  calling* a  meeting*  for organization purposes?    Someone  should move   in   the matter,   and   now  that the mayor is home, he could call a  meeting* of the electors for the purpose  of   appointing*   a committee   to correspond with other  polling*   sub-divisions  in the district with the object of organization for the   campaig-n,   and   a convention being-   held at   an   early date.  A meeting* should also be held in Mid-  wajr division and a committee appointed.    The two divisions could then communicate with other parts of  the electoral district and by the time the legislature   is  prorog-ued   the constituency  would be thoroug-hly organized, and in  a   position     to   elect   the   convention  choice.    There   is   not any   too   much  time for org-anization purposes, should  the election be held in May, and if held  this month, it will be   impossible for a  candidate to make a thoroug*h canvass  of the district.    The action of the government   in opposition to   the   Corbin  charter, should be sufficient reason for  every one interested in the district   doing* their utmost to defeat the  Turner  administration  ���./',������'...'.���...:.: ���  T  The White Front Store  Has a complete stock of Groceries*  Hams and Bacon, Canned Meats,  Clothing, etc,, of every description,  suitable for Prospecting Outfits;  Just make your order out on a  slip of paper and we will have  your goods securely packed (just as  though you were waiting) all ready  for you.

ESTIMATES.  Iit the estimates brought down in the  house last week, $1200 at Midway   and  $960 at Grand Forks is set apart under  the head of administration   of justice.  A fence is to be built at Midwaj*".around  the g-ovenimeiit building*s, at a cost of  $200.    Cascade is to g*et a lock-up costing- $400.    A sum of $700   is   set   apart  this \rear for building* a school house at  Greenwood.    This is supplementary to  the $S00 voted last year.    The resident  physician at the hospital receives $300.  Altogether, Bounclarv district is   down  in the   estimates   for  $600   for   public  works, $700 for a school   building*  and  $300 for a doctor, while the administration of  justice will   cost   for the same  district $2,100, or $600 for public works  and $2,100  for  justice.    The   item   for  <�������  4*  .*���'  Is prepared to supply the trade with first-class .Bottled Beer  nianufactured by the " Ivion Brewer}* Company, I/td.,"  of Rossland.

FISH ERf  Columbian Steam Bottling Works, near the Saw Mill, Greenwood  TT  justice does not include three constables, one each at Midway, Greenwood  and Grand Forlcs, which will raise the  justice column about $2,500 more, or a  total of justice of about $4,600, and  $600 for public works. The $600 might  just as well be placed under the head  of " administration of justice," for  $200 of it is for fencing* a jail and $400  for building* one. Now this district is  not a quarrelsome one, and we could  g-et along* very well without so much  justice arid a little more public improvement. Public works will probably be g*iven more attention in the  supplementary estimates, and this district will likely g-et a good appropriation for roads and bridg*es, or at least  a fair share of the $24,000 voted for that  purpose in E}ast Yale.  For educational purposes, Cascade'  Cit5r is down for salary and incidentals, $640 ; Grand Forks, $1,340; Kettle River, $742; North Kettle River,  $640 ; Midway, $742, and Greenwood,  $700, making* a .total of $4,904.  It is hardly conceivable the dense ig*-  norance  which   prevails   among-st  the  residents of the  Coast  respecting*  the  Interior of the province.    Allowing- for  even the  low   averag-e  of   intelligence  which  the  members   of    the    present  legislature   are  credited  with,   it   will  scarcely   be   believed   that   a member  moved "that the House required information so that it could know whether  the Corbin line crossed the boundary  or not." Another member opposed the  charter because Corbin had not first  come to the provincial legislature and  been granted "permission to expropriate Crown lands." tt would be a difficult matter for a land-grabber as keen  even as the C.P.R. octopus to find a  quarter-section of Crown land on the  route Corbin wishes to follow.

ASSOCIATION.  The regular meeting-of the Boundary  Creek Mining and Commercial Association was held Wednesday evening,  Mr. J. W. Nelson in the chair. Minutes of previous meeting read and  adopted.  The secretary read resolution drafted  by committee appointed at last meeting of association, in reference to redistribution advocated by the Rossland  delegation, and on. motion of Mr. Black  seconded by Mr. McEean, the committee was thanked and discharged.  A communication from Mr. Ross,  delegate to Ottawa was read.  Mayor Wood, delegate of the association to Victoria, reported. He had advocated legislation compelling those  applying for charter commencing construction of road from Penticton as  well as Robson. The government had  stated the intention to withdraw land  grant and give a cash subsidy of $4,0C>0  per mile. Work would be commenced  by 1st of June. A clause making this  binding would be inserted in charter.  He had done all he could with the business men on the Coast, in favor of the  Corbin charter, but they appeared to  think that a charter to Corbin would  be injurious, to; coast trade. Had a  promise from Hon. G. B. Martin that  an appropriation would be made in aid  of the Greenwood hospital: also that  either a ferry or bridge would be built  oil the West Eork before high water.  He had also written an article which  appeared in the Vancouver World, explaining- our position in regard to railway matters, showing the necessity of  a railroad being built into the Boundary Creek country this season. From  what he heard in regard to redistribution he believed that the proposed bill  would be a gerrymander. On motion  of Mr. Black, seconded by Mr. Pallett,  a vote of thanks was tendered Mr.  Wood.  Account of Rendell & Co., for $24.50,  hall rent, was ordered paid.       v  The secretary stated that he had not  yet received list of members from Mr.  E. Jacobs, a former secretary of the  association, so could not make collections.  Mr. Wood stated that he thought  railway construction would be com-  menced within six weeks, and that the  association should, if anything be more  energetic than they have been. The  association would have plenty of work  to do during the summer. He also  suggested that name be changed to  Greenwood association. If other towns  in the district would form similar associations and work in harmony, much  good might be done for the district.  Mr. Black informed those present  that he would be only too pleased to  receive the names and fill in applications of voters free of charge. He also  stated the qualifications necessary  for voting at provincial elections.  Moved by Mr. Wood, seconded by  Mr. Eamont, that association be a committee to register those not now on the  voters' list, and that each member does  his utmost to secure the registration of  voters.

A public meeting- was held at Rossland on the 24th ult., Mayor Wallace  presiding-, when the following* telegram  was ordered sent to Sir Wilfrid Iyau-  rier, Hon. A. G. Blair, Jas. Sutherland '  {chairman of the railway committee),  and Hewitt Bostock :  At a larg-ely attended meeting- of  mine owners and merchants held at  the mayor's request to-nig*ht, it was  unanimously resolved to request the  Dominion parliament to pay no attention to the resolution passed by the  legislature of British Columbia yesterday, as such resolution is simply an  ���echo, of Victoria and Vancouver.  Southern British Columbia is a unit  for the Kettle River Railway, as the  mining" interests are paramount to all  others. H. S. Wallace, Mayor.  Declined, Emphatically.  The Vancouver World sends us a six-  inch '" dead-head " advertisement and  asks us to ruiiothe sanie in our columns  in order to boom its circulation in the  Boundary Creek district. We refuse,  decidedly. Seeing- the hostility Mr.  Mclvag-an and his paper have recent^-  ��hown towards this district, in the;  matter of railroad and transportation  facilities, we should consider ourselves  lacking- in self respect if we subscribed  ourselves or induced anyone to do so.

The annual consumption of Ceylon and Indian Teas in Great Britain  is now 203;0.00>0!00'. IbS., while of Chinese Teas only 25,000,000 lbs.  are consumed. The reason for this is that Ceylon and Indian Teas are  British-grown and made on modern clean principles ;. also because they are  purer, healthier, more invigorating and more economical than the cheap  adulterated  Teas   of   China  and  Japan. ;   . V  One Pound of Ram Lai will make 200 Cups.   The growth of a whole  year of six Tea bushes is required to produce one pound of Ram Lal'S Pure  Indian Tea. So carefully is it manufactured and so rich is its character that  one pound, brewed according to the directions on the package, will make  eno/ugh; liquor   to   fill   two   hundred  tea-cups.  ���in  8 '��."�����"  BlB����artlKCWrtW��rfflW[W����fJ��"**a����n��.Wl'*t��1BBBEi w  ���a1.:  i-  If  t'r  (4. -  !���"  GREENWOOD CITY is the centra! town and supply  point of the Boundary Creek mining camps, From this  new   town   roads   lead   to   the  GREENWOOD,  *M?I>S  LONG   LAKE,  DEADWOOD,  SUMMIT,  SKYLARK,  WHITE  AND  ATWOOD,  ELLINGTON   and   SMITH  CAMPS  Lots  are  selling  freely  and  are  a  good  investment,  -o-  For- price of Lots and other information, address  Robt Wood of G &  Greenwood City, Boundary Creek,  Or  apply  to  the Agents?  ii   ���%  , B.C .
