Vol, II,  GREENWOOD CITY, EG, SATURDAY, AUGUST 14, 1897,  49  No, 23,  OUR   EDUCATIONAL  SYSTEM.  East week the Boundary Creek Times drew attention to  the necessity for enforcing* the compulsory clause in the  school Act in order that all the children of school ag*e should  be forced to receive such an education as our public school  system affords. Taking* this matter into further consideration, the question naturally arises, whether through the educational system of which so much commendatory has been  written and spoken, there is as much knowledge produced  as there might be or whether we get 100 cents' worth of edu-  cation for every dollar expended. Our educational system  richly deserves all the encomiums that have been lavished  upon it, but as the proof of the pudding is the eating of it so  the proof of an educational system is to be found in the condition of the people in the province in which it exists.  "We have been in the habit of considering* Chinese and  their institutions in a contemptuous manner, but apologists  have been telling us that those who pay their $50 poll tax  and enter into competition with the white laborers in this  province are the offscourings of Pekin, Canton, Hong-  Kong* and other centres on the coast: If this be true and  there is strong* evidence to prove that it is-true, the educational capabilities of these men is a striking* commentary  on the efficiency of the Chinese educational system. We  venture the assertion that no one has met a Chinaman in  this country who could neither read nor write. Can as  much be said of the people of our own country or will as  much be said of our own men and women 20 years hence, if  boys and girls are allowed to stay away from our educational institutions, unappreciative of the advantages of education and unfortunate to be not blessed with parents who  deem it a crime to have their children grow up illiterates ?  Is there not something lacking* in the educational system  maintained by the annual expenditure of a large sum of  money when boys and g*irls can grow up without being* able  to read or write? The state demands that not only should  all people be educated but that exceptionally clever children  should be developedv It is difficult to say Where these exceptional people will crop up ; like their opposite, the fools  and the knaves, they appear sometimes in the palace and  sometimes in the hovel. It is possible and probable that an  embryo genius may be running about the streets ; if allowed to grow up untrained he may land in the penitentiary ;  if taken in hand he would attain distinction.  It is of the first importance that all���even the waifs of  society���should receive a good, sound elementary education,  not that they should be able to pass a high school entrance  examination or attain any other standard but that they are  able to have command of the common implements of learning* and have a desire for greater knowledge. ' Twere better that the higher education of the few should be neg*elect-  ed than allow any to receive no education at all.  It is essential that the best of education should be within  the reach of all, but it is more important that education  should be made real to all people and if necessary compulsion used, not simply a compulsory law to be placed on  the statute books to be more honored in the breach than the  observance.  While we are discussing the subject of education we beg-  to draw attention to the great necessity for a training  school for teachers in this province. The question of  establishing such an institution has been discussed from  year to year but nothing has been done. The work accomplished by the teachers of the province is worthy of commendation, but the teacher should not gain his experience  by  experimenting* with   children.    He  is  not like a brick-  maker who when he makes a mistake can reduce his failure  to original clay and try over ag*ain. Every slight effort on  the part of the teacher leaves its impression. If wrong, it  cannot be effaced. The teacher should be paid well for his  services ; he. should also be first compelled to take a careful  course of training before eng*ag*ing in his important work.  ���$p<>  '5Sfe  fit-  TWO   DISTINGUISHED   MINISTERS.  The Honorable Georg*e B. Martin, the distinguished Commissionerof Eands and Works, has been talking*. Under  certain influences the honorable Geprg*e " puts his foot in  when he opens his mouth," as the street arab would say.  He often says thing's that he afterwards regrets. In his  Kootenay moments of weakness, he said some uncomplimentary thin g*s about his very able and distinguished colleague, the Honorable Col. James Baker, Provincial Secretary, Minister of Mines, Minister of Education, etc.  Now taking* them together the gallant Colonel and the  affable Chief "Commissioner are a pretty pair and a credit to  the government of which they are <? members. The Colonel  is the cleverer of the two but he is also the more designing. Give him time and furnish "-him with other people's  ideas and he can deliver didactic discourses on bi-metallism,  altruism or almost any other ism, but he can also manipulate railway charters and railway subsidies, tack on government lands to a prospectus of his own property, remove  g-overnment offices in order to boom townsites in which he is  interested and use public moneys for trips that are partly  in the public interest   but principally in his own.  The Honorable Mr. Martin is above all these things, not  because he is less willing but because he is less competent.  He could not deliver an address on altruism because he has  not the knack of plagiarising and he could not manipulate  a railway deal because those who are engaged in that sort  of business have no confidence in hisvability. True, he has  distinguished himself by violating* the Eand Act in order  that he could g*ive 67 acres of Ruckle Bros.' land to" a speculator rrom Victoria ; he has sold cannery sites for $5 that  were worth $5,000 and he has failed to collect timber dues  from mills with plenty of capital, but drove pre-emptors off  their holding's by enforcing* the timber tax when they cut  cordwood of log*s on the land which they were clearing* and  sold the same to buy the necessaries of life.  It would be difficult to find the peers of this pair in any  other government and Curator Fanin should make arrangements to retain   them   in   the  provincial   museum after the  next g*eneral election.  "At-  ���Me.  'AP  4%  ->if  HEINZE    WILL    WAIT.  A telegraphic dispatch from Trail announces that a reliable man who stands in close relation to Mr. Heinze has  authorized the statement " that apart from finishing* his  road from Trail toRobson, Mr. Heinze will attempt no more  railroad building* until after the next session of the Dominion parliament, from whose hands he hopes to receive better  treatment than he received last session. On his Rossland���  Penticton route he not only had his line surveyed but it was  staked out for grading as far west as Christina lake. Mr.  Heinze feels much cut up at the treatment accorded him by  some of the B. C. members especially at the open attacks of  Mr. Maxwell." It is possible that if Mr. Heinze waits  until next year, he will find that more enterprising and  less grasping* railway promoters have alread3' built. While  he is waiting for further subsidies Mr. Corbin will probably  build a road and secure the trade.  \������j_w.TrPm~^irT-��'-"T''-*r'rT*-*^^   v\ THE   BOUNDARY   CEEEK   TIMES,  INCORPORATION.  It will beseen by the advertisement,  appearing in this week's issue of the  Times, the letters patent for the incorporation of the City of Greenwood have  at last been forwarded by the provincial government. Nominations for a  Mayor and six Aldermen shall take  place at the school house, Greenwood,  on Saturday next, August 21st, and the  polling a week later. Mr. Robert Wood  is named the Returning Officer.  Regarding*   the   approaching   Municipal election we  will reserve any extended observations  until next week's  issue  but  we,   in   common   with,    we  believe, the great majority of the electors of Greenwood sincerely regret the  appointment   of: Mr.  Robert  Wood as  Returning* Officer if such  appointment  bars him from   becoming   a  candidate  for the position of the first .Chief Magistrate of Greenwood.    We�� are strongly of the opinion that Mr. Wood's candidature would be unopposed.  ,   Usually it is unwise to allow elections  by acclamation, but Mr. Wood has been  so closely identified with  the  progress  of   Greenwood ';, his time, ;money   anil  efforts have been so largely  responsible forwthe   city's  growth, that we believe  the  majority  of  the (people are  anxious  that proper   appreciation   be  shown for his services by   electing him  Mayor of Greenwood without opposition.    We understand  that   already   a  telegram  has  been   forwarded  to  the  provincial government requesting that  some one elsejbe appointed  Returning  Officer and  we  hope  the  government  will accede to this request.  Regarding the Aldermen there is  plenty of g*ood material in Greenwood  and we would not dislike seeing a keen  Municipal contest.  Odd Fellows Entertained.  The members of the I. O. O. F. in  Greenwood were entertained at supper  on Tuesday, evening last, by their  brother Oddfellow, Mr." H. H. Huff, at  his residence on Copper street. Mr.  Huff is a young* Oddfellow and as the  other members guided him safely and  carefully through the mystic maze of  the second degree of Oddfellowship,  Mr. Huff showed his gratitude by giving a supper to all the members of the  lodge. The supper was an eloquent  testimonial to the culinary skill of  Mrs. Huff and air present spent a very  pleasant evening.  Register Your Vote.  It is the duty of every resident of  Greenwood who has the necessary  qualifications to register his vote for  the coming* Municipal election. The  only qualifications are to be a British  subject and to have resided three  months within the limits of the City of  Greenwood. The necessary forms may  be secured at the.office of A. S. Black  and at the Times office. No one should  neglect the matter, .as the list of voters  should be as large as possible.  A Steamer Sunk.  The steamer Mexico, which left Victoria with a large number of passengers bound for Clondyke, struck on a  rock near Sitka and sank in 500 feet of  water. The passengers and crew were  saved by means of small boats and all  returned to Victoria on the Topeka.

Hamilton Manufacturing* Company, Ivtd., arrived in  Greenwood from the Kootenay district  yesterday. Mr. Hamilton is a director  of the Boundary Falls Mining* Co., and'  of the Pasadna Gold Mining* Co., and  intends visiting the properties of both  companies during* his visit here. He  is also the owner of the Spotted Horse  mine which " adjoins the Greenwood  townsite. The development which has  already been carried out on the Spotted Horse has proven it to be a property of great promise. The properties of the two companies of which Mr.  Hamilton is a director are also among*  the best in the district; as every one  connected with the Wm. Hamilton Co.  is full of enterprise, their rapid development is assurred.  The manufactures of the Wm. Hamilton Company are being* used in every  mining* district and always give satisfaction, and mine owners of Boundary  Creek who are about to purchase mining* machinery cannot do better than  J consult Mr. Hamilton during* his visit  here.  Mr. Hamilton has every confidence  in the future of Boundary Creek district. He volunteered the encouraging-  information that, railroad or no railroad, a smelter will be running* to its  full capacity in this district within the  next twelve months.  Chief Executive Officer.  Georg*e Mclv. Brown, Chief Executive officer of the C. P. R. for British  Columbia, arrived in Greenwood yesterday afternoon and interviewed the  business men regarding* the freig-ht  traffic on his line. Mr. Brown was for  many years district passeng*er ag-ent  for the C. P. R., and is exactly suited  for the purpose of smoothing* over the  many "kicks " which have been registered against the C. P. R. in this district. The. C. P. R. Company are now  o-iving more attention to Boundary  Creek and from all appearances are  determined to give the district more  consideration than they have in the  past. Mr. Brown will spend several  days in the district.  The Times is in receipt of some  handsome catalogues from the well  known Goldie & McCulloch Company,  of Gait, Ont. They manufacture mining machinery extensively as well as  boilers, engines, safes, etc.  Cameron & McKenzie have a stock  of hats, caps and clothing on their  hands that must be disposed of by the  25th, inst, regardless of cost.

Dr. Jakes  has extracted the bullet and his arm  will be saved if nothing unforseen  occurs. \  Mr. C. W. H? Sansom has prepared  plans for a very neat and comfortable  one story and a half cottage which will  be erected above the saw milL for Mr.  Ostroski, of the Greenwood Mercantile  Company. The residence will contain  seven rooms and will be -fitted with all  modern conveniences.  O.    R.    Butts    and  Ethel  Rankin,   daughter  Miss Gertrude  of George  Rankin of the Sunset mine, were married at Carson last week and not at  Colville as "stated in the Times. The  marriage ceremony took place in McLaren Bros.' hotel, Rev. Mr. Paton  officiating. Miss Elsie McEaren acted  as bridesmaid and D. D. McEaren supported the groom.  Mr. William Burns, Inspector of  Public schools, visited Greenwood and  other schools in the district during the  week. Mr. Burns went down as far as  Cascade City where a new school is  being opened, there being 16 children  of school age in that locality. Mr.  Burns had met the Greenwood school  trustees and he will report to the Education Department, the wishes of the  board with reference to educational  matters.  GRAND FORKS AND ITS PEOPLE.  The Miner is speaking rather plainly  to the people of Grand Forks and has  the courage to make some comparisons  that do no discredit to the citizens of  Greenwood. After publishing an article from the Boundary Creek Times  regarding the hopeful feeling of the  residents of Greenwood, the Miner tells  the people of Grand Forks the following* inelegant but wholesome truths :  With but few exceptions, the people  of Grand Forks, are unlike the people  of Greenwood. Instead of keeping  plodding along and keeping their faith,  in the country, when the disappointing  railway news reached the Forks, they  commenced to howl like a whipped bull  pup, and set up such a wail that it  scared everybody that came to town.  The great trouble in the past there has  been-entirely too much attention paid  to trying to sluff off town property,  which found ready sale when there was  prospects of a railway being built, but  which collapsed with the announcement that no road will be built this  season. Then again, the town is  afflicted with a few people who live for  self alone, they want every thing in  sight; it makes them sore to see anybody else make a dollar but themselves ; never give or spend a dollar for  any public enterprise, except they see  20 in return for the investment, and  stand around on the corners and  ''knock" everybody and everything  that don't coincide with them on every  point."  The people long to find out where they  can get the best articles, That is why our  Customers always come back. They have  discovered that our Groceries are the best  that can be secured, and that pur prices are  always satisfactory to our clients.  We make a specialty of Groceries and Provisions.

The Boundary Creek Times has  been favored with the following account of the baseball match between  Greenwood and Nelson. Taking into  consideration the fact, that the writer  is an enthusiastic ball twirler, and that  he in turn was " twirled" by the stage  running into one of the big tamaracks  on the other side of the summit, the  "write up" of the trip is as moderate  as could be expected:  "At six o'clock Sunday morning the  Greenwood baseball club started for  v Nelson, Wash., to even up the defeat  of July last which they suffered at the  hands of their American cousins on the  diamond at Greenwood, and if wind  could have accomplished their object  the earth in the immediate vicinity of  Nelson would have been literally covered with fragments of the Nelson aggregation. One obstacle intervened  to prevent the consummation of  the Greenwood boys' wishes, viz. : Nel-  sonites play ball, and subsequent  events proved this fact.  Arriving  at  Nelson   at  10:30  a.m.,  after doing   several "somersaults  and  flying leaps to avoid concussion with a  few of  the  mighty  tamaracks  subsequent    to    the   breaking   of    the   clip  on    the    tongue   near   the   axle,    the  Greenwood team proceeded to wash off  and wash down the dust,   and   also to  keep  a close watch   upon   the   dining  room, as  it  is  almost impossible even  for a Greenwood baseball plaver to feel  inwardly  comfortable  after  a "hand  out" at  5   a. m.   in the morning and a  20 mile ride.    The dinner was an excellent one, and  refreshed and  rested we  got ready for the game  which was  to  be  called  at  2:30 p. m.    After a small  kick on the part of.one of  the  Nelson  team to the Messrs. Maher Biros., (one of  Greenwood and the other of Deadwood  camp)   playing   withns,  " play ball"  was called by the umpire and  the  fun  began.    The game was featureless excepting for errors,, on the   part   of   the  Greenwood team, each individual member of   which   played   everything- but  good .baseball from first to last.    Nelson scored twelve runs  on   overthrows  by   Greenwood.    The Greenwood boys  were much superior as ballplayers and  .notwithstanding their many errors succeeded   in   winning   the   match   on a  score of :   Greenwood   24,   Nelson  23.  The Greenwood team deserves no credit  for winning the game ; it should have  been a walk over, and if the same men  will get down to work   the   team   will  stand second to none in the interior of  the province.

SATURDAY,  AUGUST ,14,   1897.  GREENWOOD AND VICINITY.  Messrs. Thompson & Douglass of  Midway, are -working several properties at Fairview.  C. T. Ceperley,, a prominent financial and mining man of Vancouver,  passed  through Greenwood yesterday.  I. H. Hallett, barrister, left on Saturday last, for Vernon on legal business. He is expected to return to-morrow.  S. G. Stooke, of Sandon, a son of  Mrs. Wenr"ick, of Greenwood, was  among the visitors to the city this  week.  Mr. Glaze has secured the contract  for building- the wagon road from Midway to Curlew creek, and has already  begun ���work.'.'  " Messrs. Dier & Davidson, of Fair-  view, expect to have their 20 stamp  mill running at the Tin Horn mine by  September 10.  A return cricket match between  Greenwood and Midway was played at  Midway yesterday. Greenwood sent  down a strong team.  Public schools will probably be opened shortly at Fairview and Camp McKinney as there are the requisite number of school children in both camps.  A meeting of Liberalswill beheld  in Greenwood, at 8 o'clock, on Monday  evening, 23rd inst, for the purpose of  perfecting the organization and electing permanent officers.  Considerable development work is  being done on the Great .Hopes, in  Deadwood camp. The ore on top is  free milling and runs as high as $50 to  the ton. There are many tons of ore  in sight which will average over $20.  The public school opened on Monday  and during the week the attendance  has been double that of the closing  month of last term. The average for  the week has been 22. Master Charles  Galloway, a pupil of the Greenwood  school, wrote for the high school entrance examination during Inspector  Burns' visit.  Greenwood was this week invaded by  a band of jolly drummers, all of whom  .secured large orders for the fall trade.  Among the representatives of commercial houses were S. J. Mighton, traveler for Tuckett, of Hamilton, the manufactures of the famous T. & B. tobaccos (Messrs Rendeli & Co., have been  appointed sole agents for this firm's  tobaccos and cigars); John McCul-  lough, representing Wood, Vullens &  Co., hardware wholesalers ; A.

Mr; E. M. ID. Munns, representing  the English syndicate who bonded the  Anaconda group of claims, is expected  in Greenwood shortly to put a large  force of men to work developing the  property. ,  It is understood that the provincial  government have accepted an acre of  land from the Townsite Co., on the  knoll overlooking the new addition.  Upon this will be erected the jail and  court house.  Mr.-J. H. Macfarlane, the local manager of the Sunset mine, has received  abetter from Mr. W. I/. Hogg, informing him that urgent business had compelled his return to Montreal. Mr.  Hogg will return to British Columbia  about October 1st, coming to Greenwood direct. The tunnel on the Sunset is now in over 200 feet and the indications are of a most  nature.  encouraging  Judging from the conversation heard  on the street regarding the approach-  ihg Municipal election, it is safe to say  that there will be a sufficient number  of candidates for Aldermen to make an  interesting contest. Some of the old-  time politicians are getting on their  war paint and are talking about running a straight ticket, but it is probable that such a combination cannot  be secured.   ,  Dissolution of Partnership,  THE partnership heretofore existing* between H.

Justices of the Peace, J. Hamill, W.  H. Norris and P. McCallum,sat as a  court of Licensing* Commissioners at  Midway on Monday last. The court  had been adjourned from the regular  sitting in June. There were two applications for licenses to be considered ;  one being by F. Shonquist for the  Commercial Hotel, Greenwood, and the  other for a new^hotel in the suburbs of  Grand Forks. Mr. A. S. Black appeared for Mr. Shonquist and Mr. J. P. Mc-  Leod for the other applicant. The  court had no objections to the granting of either- license but were armed  with an opinion f rom Deputy-Attorney-  General Smith, to the effect that no  new licenses could be granted at an  adjourned meeting* of the court and  that applications for licenses should  be made at a regular meeting. As the  licensing court only meets twice a year,  such a ruling is a hardship to those  who have built extensive hotel buildings in the interval.  HONORABLE MR. FOSTER.  Honorable George '..ID..- Foster, i}x-  Minister of Finance, was in Spokane  Wednesday and left for Kootenay. He  will probably visit Boundary Greek  shortly as he has several mining interests here.  Hon. Mr. Foster stated in an interview that despite the dullness in the  milling stock business there is still  much interest taken in eastern Canada  in British Columbia mines. Thing*s  will brighten up in the autumn and  more eastern money will seek investment in this province. ��� :���''���.<���  FORESTERS'   ENTERTAINMENT.  Court Boundary, I. O.

The development work  already carried out on the Gold Bed  has uncovered a large body of iron ore  carrying gold. Mr. Haas has gone up  to the West Fork to do the assessment  work on his claim, the Paymaster, and  to look at other properties. Upon his  return he will put a number of men to  work on the Gold Bed.  The Vancouver Group.  Mr. L/eslie Hill, the local manager of  the Vancouver Group Mining Company  has received most encouraging reports  from William Eewis who is superintending the work on the Vancouver  Group on Four Mile creek, Slocan lake.  Mr. Eewis has had only 10 miners at  work for a month and in that time  there were two car loads of high grade  ore put in the bin and .from 10 to  12 car loads in sight. The ore is high  grade silver,previous shipments having  given 240 ounces to the ton. Work is  being carried on four of the company's  claims through which the same ore vein  runs. The government has given  $4,000 and the mine owners have contributed another $4,000 for the purpose  of constructing a road which will tap  all the mines on Four Mile creek. The  ore from the Vancouver Group will be  shipped by sleighs in winter.  Destroying Location Notices.  Constable Dinsmore of Grand Forks,  who visited Greenwood on Monday last,  arrested R. H. Farren last week on a  charg-e of cutting the notices off the  Elsie May posts. The prosecutors  were Neil McCallum and W. R. McDonald of Grand Forks, and W. W.  Saunders of Spokane, all being members of the compan)' owning the Elsie  May. From the evidence given at the  trial, it appeared that Farren did not  use new stakes but cut the notices off  the Elsie May stakes and substituted  notices of his own, renaming the claim  the Go By. Mr. Farren pleaded guilty  and was fined $20 and costs.  The men at the Jewel are at present  engaged in the work of sinking on the  winze.  >-o-i��>-9-*m>-��-*a>-m*M*9-**>+**>-m*��D'9M*+��-4Bt*��-i*t~m-4i��t>*4*9>-m~4��*-+<a>-* <������> ��a-i  r-9~49P-9~4m>*��*t9*Q*tQ>-a-4t��-9M*>-9-49>9<9>~9-*9>*9<B9>-9-19>*9A��f9-<9>-0*t>-9-*a>-9M  :T ' ''.-..���" !
