BIELENBERG MAKES A BIG  Deal���A South Deadwood Camp Property Secured by Eastern* Capitalists���Big Figure  Paid.���Company to Be Organized.  In many respects one of the big-g-est  deals ever ..made in connection with  Boundary Creek properties, yvas closed  on Monday last when the Buckhorn  and the adjoining- claim the Tintic.was  sold to eastern capitalists by E. A.  Bielenberg*. , Negotiations for the sale  of the property were opened. abont two  months ago, but it was not until the arrival of W.T. McDonald in thecity that  the final arrangements were made.'  The purchasers are good friends of  Boundary Creek, men who have, unlimited confidence in the resources of  the district and plenty of capital to develop any properties they may acquire.  They, are some of the. largest shareholders in the Old Ironsides and Kriob  Hill properties and include O. G.  Labaree of Spokane, Rufus Pope, M.  P., S. H. C Miner of the Granby  Rubber Company, W. B. Ives, M. P.  The deal was arranged by O. G.  Sabaree representing- the syndicate,  ."and W. T. Smith and J. C Haas representing Mr. Bielenberg*. The price  paid was $30,000 cash and '< 200,000  shares in a company which is being-  organized with a capital "of $1,500,000  to develop the property.   (���*>"'     ��� "���  The Buckhorn is a full sized claim  in South Deadwood camp, about, two  and a half miles* from Greenwood. It  has been developed by several shafts  and 500.feet of open cuts disclosing* ore  .fort. 1000 feet in length and not less  than 400 feet wide. The ore is a rich ;  chalcopyrite giving high copper values  and good gold values.' ���". .''Average as-,  says haven given $25.40 in all values.  /Tt.is-the intention to organize the  company at once and "begin ��� the w.ork..  of opening lip-the .property. ��� The  principals in the deal*, or their friends  now have big properties in Greenwood,  Central and Deadwood camps. There  latest purchasers, from surface indications, likely to prove the equal of their  big properties which have come rapidly into prominence through extensive  developement work.  COUNCIL   MEETING.  The Telephone.Company's Right of Way By-  Law Passed---New City Treasurer.  The regular, meeting o"f the city  council was held oh Monday evening.  Mayor Hardy presided and the following aldermen were present: Naden,  ' Galloway, Sutherland and Campbell.  Mayor Hardy considered that there  was a great necessity for a procedure  by-layv. and to emphasize the point he  suggested . the amendment of the  minutes of last meeting on a motion to  adopt them. The object of the amendment yvas to make the contractors liable  ^^  Klondike and,,  Shanty Pattern,  For Office and  Pocket Use ,,.  gi.    jlffc'   jSi  ?���*���* VA*- ?/������*  MITH  &  Mc.RAE,  Books, Stationety, Wallpaper, Notions  and Fancy Goods,  GREEN-WOOD,     B.C.  .^w~  for any damages arising from the use  of the city's tramway system. The  city solicitor suggested an agreement  with the contractors. This suggestion  was followed and the minutes escaped  mutilation.  Messrs. A. T. Kendrick and Holt applied to the council for permission to  use the street for building purposes,  for established street grade and for  compensation for the completion of the  culvert on the Copper street fill. The  council granted their requests.  J. E. Schon, the medical health  officer recommended the appointment  of a local board of health and the more  rigid ihforcement of the provisions of  the provincial board of health act. The  doctor's suggestions 'were endorsed by  the council.  , G. B. Taylor yvas appointed city  treasurer. The question of salary was  not decided. Mayor Hardy suggested  the appointment of an assessor, but  this matter was also deferred.  The council  then yvent into committee   for   two    hours , to consider the  BoundaryCreek Telegraph  and Telephone Company's right-of-way by-law.  The different sections were discussed  and   amended    until  after . two hours  consideration   the committee reported  the by-layv as it  appears  in this.issue.  Wednesday,    February  15,    yvas fixed  a polling day,  when  the electors will  begiven an opportunity to express their  opinions regarding the by-law.     G. B.  Taylor     was ,.''.��� appointed      returning  officer.  Mayor Hardy reported that men had  started on the wateryvorks and^that the  engineer was preparing plans for the  year's yvork. This outline will include  the grading of the main street to the  city limits on the Anaconda side of the  city as well as the grading of all streets  in the centre and. Government jand  Copper streets northward.  It was nearly midnight when the  council adjourned.  A   LARGE   FIRST-CLASS   HOTEL  To Be Built in Greenwood at an Early Date.  ^ A Four-Story Building.  ' Graham & Parry of the Imperial  hotel have secured plans for a large  four-story hotel yvhich will shortly be  erected on the corner of Copper and  Deadwood streets. The plans show a  handsome building .having 150 feet  frontage on Deadwood street and 50  . feet on Copper street. The main entrance will be on Deadwood street. A  very wide hall leads from the main  entrance ' and on either side ��� are the  dining room, offices, bar-room and billiard room. The different floors will  be well lighted and well finished.' All  the sitting rooms, bed rooms.etc, will  be large and well'furnished. The basement yvill be well lighted and the  greater portion will be used-as sample  rooms. The building when completed  will cost over $15,000.  It is expected that yvork will begin  within three weeks., The erection of  the building' will give what Greenwood needs���a first-class hotel.  Anarchist Group Bonded-  R. G. Sidley, J. P., of Anarchist  mountain, yvas in the city on Monday.  During his visit here negotiations for  the bonding of the yvell known Anarchist group of claims at Camp McKinney yvere successfully closed. The  bond yvas given by W. B. Paton & Co.  of Greenwood, and 10' per cent, of the  price mentioned yvas paid in cash. The  group consists of the Anarchist, Dyna-  niite" and Success. They have been  held by Mr. Sidley for several years  and he has done considerable development yvork: On the Anarchist is one  80-foot and another 60-foot shaft. At  the foot of the 80-foot shaft is a ledge 5  feet*9 inches of free-milling ore. An  exceptionally good yvater right goes  with the property. There is sufficient  power to run ' a large mill and the  trench for the water has already been  dug.  The Anarchist group is one of the:  very best properties in Camp McKinney. They contain good strong ledges  yvhich can be worked very cheaply.  A defective stovepipe through  the roof, in violation of the fire-by-law,  .was responsible for a fire at Mrs.  Haines' residence on Saturday. Thanks  to the efforts of the fireman the blaze  was quenched before much damage  was done. The alarm yvas given about  orfe o'clock and soon several of the fire  laddies were on the roof yvith buckets  of water yvhich quenched the blaze. THE   BOUNDAEY   CREEK   TIMES,  j     H.

In addition to the very necessary  amendments to the Mineral act yvhich  have been suggested, one important  one has been overlooked. During the  session of 1S98, section 127 of the Act  yvas repealed and a section substituted  to the effect that the owner of a mineral  claim yvho had his claim surveyed  within one year from, the date of the  record of the claim, or if the claim yvas  recorded before the passing of that  section referred to, then if surveyed  before "the first day of May, 1899,  the owner yvas entitled to have the  cost of -survey counted as yvork done  on the claim. Noyv every encouragement ought to be given mine owners  to luive their claims surveyed. It is  impossible for the surveyors to survey  all claims before May 1, 1899, consequently this time limit ought to he removed. This suggestion is so reasonable and so. much iu the public interest that yve feel confident the government yvill see its way clear to so  amend the act that the "cost of survey  can be ahvays recorded 'as work done  on the claim.  FIRE   DEPARTMENT.  Till*: volunteer lire department ought  to receive every encouragement from  the council and the city. They are" a  body of  men   yvho   ran   save  the  city  many thousands of dollars. They  should be given the very best facilities  for fighting* fires and every inducement to perfect their arganization. A  ' building should be provided in yvhich  the tire apparatus can be stored and in  yvhich two or three of the firemen,can  sleep. A better-bell should be purchased and more apparatus secured. It  yvould be the worst kind< of economy to  "refuse the expenditure of a few hundred dollars in helping the firemen to  more efficiently fight fires. The yvork  done at last Saturday's fire clearly  proved that even yvith the meagre  amount of apparatus at their disposal,  a few active men organized for a purpose can do effective yvork.  A more rigid enforcement of the fire  protection by-layv would in all probability lessen the amount of yvork the  firemen yvill have to do.  RENDELLi-SIMMS-  Mr.   Clias.   M.   Rendell  and   Miss   Florence  Simms   United  In  Marriage.  Everyone in Boundary Creek and  Grand Prairie knows Chas. Rendell.  He yvas one of the pioneers of the district and a universal favorite. Mr.  Rendell went back to his old home in  Newfoundland'last summer and*..now  word comes that he has joined the  order of benedicts. The St. John's  Evening Herald publishes a description of the event on specially tinted  paper. The Herald says :  ' "Another happy event took place in  St. Thomas' church at 3 p. m., when  'Chas. M. Rendell, third son of Hon. G.  T. Rendell, was united in matrimony  to Miss Florence, third daughter of  the late Dr. Simms. The church yvas  crowded yvith friends and relatives of  the happy pair. Rev. H.' Dunfield, M.  A., performed the ceremony, and the  bride yvas given away by Mr. Justice  Morison. The bride was.attended at  the altar by Misses Barbara Rendell,  Mollie Morison and Isabel Simms,  while the groom was supported by Mr.  Bert Wood. The bride's costume yvas  a handsome one of yvhite material,  yvith a pretty wreath of orange blossoms and veil, and she carried a beautiful bouquet. The bridesmaids wore  cream trimmed yvith old gold, and  cream hats. After the ceremony the  happy pair, accompanied by their  friends, drove to the residence of the  bridefs mother, yvhere a reception was  held, and at 5 p. m. left for Manuels,  yvhere the honeymoon yvill be spent.  The presents received yvere costly and  numerous, as both parties are well and  favorably known. The happy pair received the congratulations of their  friends, in which the Herald joins,  yvishing them long life and every happiness."  The Times joins its contemporary  across the continent in extending its  congratulations.  The recent shipment of ore from the  B. C. to the Trail smelter fully met  the expectations of the shippers.  O'i        O'-i        O'i        ���."-��       O'i       N-l'i        Ofc        *.-��'��     " vl'-i  ���>rf      ���*K?

The plaintiff claimed that he  should in any case be paid for 175 feet  of tunnel, while the defense held that"  that he had been paid for 168 feet  8 inches, the correct length. Then  there was a difference as to changes in  the contract price. The jury decided  that the length .of tunnel was 168 feet  8 inches, that McVicar threw up the  contract and that he was entitled to no  further compensation or damages.  Before adjournment, His Honor  Judge Spinks' wished to get the vieyvs  of the layvyers relative to the sittings  of the court. He held it was impossible to hold court in Greenyvood and *  Midway only eight miles apart. The  Greenyvood barristers and Mr. McLeod  of Midway gave their vieyvs on the  matter. It was decided to hold the  next cotirt at Midway and in all  probability subsequent courts will be  held at Greenwood,  A sitting of the county court yvas  held at Midway on Monday.
