Vol. V,  GREENWOOD, B.C., SATURDAY,   DECEMBER  10, 1898/  118  No, 14  MUNICIPAL   CAMPAIGN.  'HE} municipal campaigners have practically ex-  SB exhausted themselves. They began work at high  pressure, eig*ht weeks before election. The pace  was too swift, so they have wisely settled down  to the duties of everyday life. It is not probable  that the excitement will be renewed until after  the New Year. Messrs. Smailes and Hardy are  the only candidates in the field for mayor. The fight is  going to be in the mayoralty contest. It is quite possible  that the aldermen will be returned unopposed. I^ast year's  council have had enough of municipal life. Alderman Galloway is the only one who has declared his intention of  running again. Alderman Paton has had enough ; Alderman Barrett expects to be away .during the summer, and  says he won't run ; Alderman Kerr is going to visit the  " land of the heather," and Alderman Parry is too busy to  devote any time to municipal work. Alderman Phelan  says he won't stand, but when the bugle sounds it is scarcely  possible that an Irishman can resist the temptation of  taking a hand in the fight.  There are several new candidates spoken of, Geo. R.  JNTaden, Thos. McDonnell, James Sutherland, Dr. Jakes, A.  B. Campbell, Geo. McKague, Thos. Miller and J. W. Nelson  being among the number.  There is no good reason why the campaign should not  be conducted in a friendly spirit, and the city benefitted by  the discussion of municipal affairs. If attempts to divide  the people into factions are discouraged, if outside issues  are tabooed, and a municipal campaign conducted solely on  the grounds of municipal politics, the result will be advantageous to the city. What the people of Greenwood lacked  was a keener interest in public affairs. The municipal  battle will awaken that interest. There is however a danger that a shallow few will go to the other extreme and  consider that political differences arise from personal  enmity and personal jealousy.-  ���>!(.  W  ���StlC  FIGHTING   THE   INEXORABLE.  The Grand Forks Miner, in its , very elegant style,  asserts that "at present Grand Forks seems to have a lead-  pipe cinch on being the wholesale, mining and commercial  center of the Boundary country." With a thermometer  below zero, lead pipes do not make the safest comparisons.  They often require the attention of ^he plumbers. As.fat-  as Grand -Forks is concerned,'however, the Miner's comparison is an excellent one. Grand Forks'lead-pipe cinch  on the trade needs plumbing very badly. We fear that the  plumbers at her disposal are not likely to strengthen or  repair the cinch. They will make plenty of noise ; they will  boast loudly of the perfect job, but they will all have different views regarding the proper ���method of doing- the repairing ; there will be rival personal interests considered,  and the poor cinch will be always getting- into a worse condition.  The Miner's reputation for veracity is not so securely  established that it can hope to bolster up Grand Forks by  extravagant statements unsupported by proofs. There are  certain natural laws that control the destinies of mining  .districts and mining centers. Neither the vain boastings  of unscrupulous townsite boomers, nor the extravagant  statements of irresponsible newspapers, will change those  laws. The product of the mines seeks a market at the  most convenient point, and the operators of the mines buy  .supplies   at   the   most   convenient   point.    Trade   follows  natural channels. The ores will go to that point which can  be reached with the least expense and the least resistance.  All Boundary Creek ores will naturally gravitate towards  Boundary .creek. .They will establish a center on Boundary creek, and the ores beyond the Boundary Creek watershed will, to a 'reasonable distance, follow the Boundary  Creek, ores.  Grand Forks is outside the Boundary Creek district.  The only section tributary to it is that along the North  Fork. If its people encouraged that promising mining district,   instead  of attempting to secure  a standing through  V_a district which is not  tributary  to  th^.m'.j'the   interests   of  the city would be better served.  Greenwood did not reach its present position,.nor does  its people bank upon its future, because of a beautiful  townsite or special outside advantages. The town grew  because it was the center for those mines which were being  developed, and its future is assured because it is situated  on Boundary creek and Boundary creek is the natural center  for Boundary Creek ores. Greenwood had nothing to fear  and hasnothing to fear from the competition of a town  lying without the pale of Boundary Creek. The only town  that stood on an equal footing with Greenwood as far as  the trade of the Boundary Creek mining district was concerned was any town which happened to be situated on  Boundary creek. It was not then a question of natural  law but a question of business enterprise. The people of  Greenwood worked together and fought together, and they  soon secured a supremacy on Boundary Creek.  Grand Forks is foolish to fight an inexorable natural  law. She ought to cultivate what she has rather than run  after something she can never secure.    Grand Forks is not,  ,nor  can  it  ever  be   the   center of the Boundary Creek district.    It is not even in the Boundarv Creek district.  >��r  ���lie.  THE   CITY   COUNCIL.  The city council at its   regular   meeting  wrestled with  figures furnished by the city treasurer.    As   was  expected,  the estimate of six weeks   ago,   when   sufficient   money to  finish flume and waterworks was   outlined, proved   of little  value.    The flume which, according to   the   engineer's estimate, was to cost $1,400, cost over $2,100.    The last estimate  showed a credit to waterworks  of $2,136.57 ; streets, $19.40,  and general fund,   $494.52, making a total of $2,650.49. The  cost of flume, $2,100.01, left a credit balance of only $550.48.  Sundry bills unpaid reduced  this   credit   balance to $393.72.  To land the water  pipe   in   Greenwood will cost about $700,  so that another deficit   is   staring  the   council  in   the face.  They  hope  to  secure  enoug*h  money   to  lay  the   pipe  by,  postponing the payment  of   a promissory note for $500 and  borrowing $600 or $700 on the rails.  Work oh the streets was   ordered   discontinued..   After  transacting- some minor routine business, council adjourned.  iii*  ���Sfc.  THE   RUSH   TO    GREENWOOD.  John H. Stone, the well-known contractor for mine  timbers, returned to town yesterday. He stated to a Miner  repo-rter that the rush of men into Greenwood was something wonderful. Yesterday 120 people, on their way to  the new Mecca, dined in Bossburg, 107 on Friday and 115  on Thursday, and this influx has been going on for some  time. Four stages go out every day loaded with passengers,  besides a great number of private rigs. The rush is  enormous.���Rossland Miner.  i !���  ���i  ���'i ��� i  ���J   !i  I  II: THE   BOUNDARY   CREEK    TIMES,  GREENWOOD AND   DISTRICT.  T. M.

As stated in another column, the season for mining deals has arrived. It  is.likely to be the busiest in the history of Boundary Creek. The Ruby  is the latest property to be bonded.  The deal was made by a representative  of [Mr. Alex. Dick of Rossland. The  owners of the property are Messrs.  McMynn, Iyanib and Cook of Midway.  The Ruby was bonded last winter to  the syndicate represented by E-. D.  Mackay and Reinze W. Macfarlane.  After making- one 'payment the syndi  cate threw up the bond on the Ruby  and other Boundary Creek properties.  The property is located in Skylark  camp, about 1)4 miles from Boundary  Falls. Considerable work has been  done thereon, including- a 50-foot  shaft. The ore assays high in g-old  and copper.  The price mentioned in   the  bond is  $15,000, of which 5 per cent, is cash.

SATURDAY,  DECEMBER 10, 1898.      ���������  MUNICIPAL   QUALIFICATION.  There is a movement on foot in other  cities of the province, looking towards  the amendment of the Municipal Act  so that the qualification for mayor and  aldermen will be changed. At present  a person must- have $500 worth of real  estate, free from all encumbrances, before he can run for alderman, and  $1,000 before he is eligible for the  office of mayor. It is felt that this restriction limits the number of good  men, and the very best men are needed  in municipal government.  The movement is in the fight direction. The possession of a few feet of  land should not be a necessary qualification for a municipal position. There  are fools owning land and wise men  without any. In Victoria some of the  people went so far as to pass a resolution to the effect that the qualification  for aldermen be changed so that a man  having the necessary value invested  in stock and carrying on a business  with the same shall be equally eligible  with the man owning real estate.  This is a radical move for Victoria,  and is a step in the right direction.  The best qualification for the office,  however, is an expression of confidence from the people that a man is  fitted to perform the duties appertaining to municipal affairs.  The  present  restrictions   often   disqualify   the   very   best   men.    A   man  may have thousands of dollars invested  in a   business.    His   interests   niTij be  the heaviest in the   city, but unless he  has a   few feet  of   ground,   he   cannot  run   for   a municipal  position.    Take  the candidates for  mayor   in this city.  Both have thousands of dollars invested  in   business   and   only   comparatively  small   amounts   in   real   estate.    Had  they not  invested a few dollars in real  estate, the thousands invested in business could not be considered as a qualification.    On.the other hand, had they  not   invested   thousands  in   business,  the   people   would    not    consider   the  possession of a few cit}r lots a   qualification.    Messrs.   Smailes   and   Hard\r  are not strong- candidates because the3r  are owners of  real estate, but because  the3r   are    prominent     business   men.  The   qualifications   respected   by   the  people   are   not   qualifications   at   all  under the present Municipal act.  A   NEEDED   CHANGE.  Continuous   kicking   has   brought   a  decided reform   in   the  postal   service.  Bostock's   efforts, the  Dominion government has been induced to appoint an inspector for the  mainland, leaving Mr. Fletcher in  charge of the island. The new inspector for the mainland is Mr. Dorraan,  who supplied the brains for the inspector's office ,,in Victoria. Mr. Dor-  man will make his headquarters at  Vancouver. It is hoped that the change  will bring to Southern British Columbia a mail service more in keeping  with the importance of the district.  THE   LEXINGTON   BONDED.  The L<exington, one of the principal  claims of White's camp, has been  bonded to J. P, Graves and associates.  The owners of'; the property are very  reticent about tne deal, but it is reported that the price is $40,000 and that  a substantial cash payment has been  made. The lyexington has a good  showing of copper ore. The ledge has  been crosscut by a tunnel and the ore  on the dump looks exceedingly rich.  The I/exington is located below the  City of Paris and is close to the international boundary line. It is owned  Geo. Rumberger and Joe. Taylor of  Greenwood camp and Marcus Oppen-  heimer of Marcus, Wash.  This is the first deal of any importance that has been made in the district this fall. It is rather a remarkable  fact that nearly ,all the big mining  deals are made after the snow falls  and there is some difficulty in traveling. I^ast fall but few claims were  bonded until winter, when the Snow-  shoe, the Stemwindef, the Brooklyn  and half a dozen other properties  changed hands.  White's camp is rapidly coming into  prominence because of the good work  being done at the City of Paris. The  tunnel on this property is in about 500  feet. The ore gives high values, in  gold and copper. Mr. White,the superintendent of the City of Paris, expected  to have the compressor plant running  this week, but a portion of the machinery was a misfit and had to be  sent back to Spokane.  See J.

COLUMBIA   AND   WESTERN   SUBSIDY.  A rumor comes from the coast -to  the effect that the g-overnment appreciates the justice of the C. P. R.'s  contention that the subsidy shall be  granted for the construction of the  road beyond the approximate 80 miles  mentioned in the B. C. L,oan Act. The  government feels, however that the  act cannot be construed into legalizing"  the subsidy for the additional distance  without beginning construction from  Penticton, and consequently will,  .shortly after the legislature opens, introduce an act amending the B. C.  Ivoan Act of last year. Such an amendment will facilitate the completion of  the Robson-Boundary Creek road.  The work from the Summit to  Greenwood is comparatively easy.  There is but little rock work and the  grade is very light. The grading will  be made very quickly, as a number of  contractors have finished their work at  the Robson end and are anxious to  move their plants   and  men over here.  $4.    ��.y��.     j,v*    *>!*���   *Y*   ^V*    *V*    *V*    *Y4  '>!���?     -iiS      its?      fit'    "w     ii<?

The three-story addition r to Messrs.  ^Wyberg- & 'Benson's building, the  Fisherman hotel, is about completed.  This will give them more accommodation for their numerous patrons.  Mr. Wickwire, the enterprising  manager for W. M. Law& Co., is occupying his spare moments in studying the Italian language. He made  his first attempt to hold a little conversation with a swarthy-looking customer yesterday ��� morning, but as the  man turned out to be a Russian, no  headway was made in . this conversation. ;  There were two cases of drunk and  fig-hting last week.

The Greenwood street flume has destroyed the efficient system of fire protection which did duty in Greenwood  during the summer. The duty which  the flume is supposed to perform is to  carry off the surplus water after the  eig-ht-iiich pipe is filled from the larg-e  and well-constructed reservoir. The  eight-inch pipe is snowed under in  Dakota, or has been stolen by Montana cowboys. In consequance of this  absence of 'pipe, the waters of Twin  are being- utilized to keep the trench  clear. The result is that it is impossible to secure a bucket of water anywhere along- the flume, and Boundary  creek,is the nearest point from which  water can be taken. In the palmy  days of last summer the volunteer fire  department built dams and damlets  along- Twin creek so that the bucket  brig-ade mig-ht have plenty of water at  their disposal. Should a fire start in  the city under present conditions, the  bucket brig-ade would have to do other  duties' besides handling- water.  In the absence of water pipe, we  humbly offer the suggestion that a  small reservoir be built at the corner  of Greenwood and Copper streets, so  that when the opportunity presents  itself the bucket brigade may show the  benefits of regular training.  CAMP   MCKINNEY.  The plan of the new townsite at  Camp McKinney has been completed  by   Sidney   M.   Johnson,   C.   ID.,- and  lots are now on the market. The demand for real estate in the new town  is something- enormous. Eots were  eag-erly, sought before the plot was  subdivided. The townsite on the  Sailor is exceptionally well situated.  The main street is level from end to  end. The lots are 35 feet wide and 100  feet deep. Profiting- by the experience in other cities the townsite is well  subdivided. The streets are wide and  an alley runs at the back of lots.  M. E. ERAZEE,  Hamill Block Copper Street.  ������'.: Grocery and Bakery. ��j��  SWEET   POTATOES.  ORANGES AND DEMONS.  FRESH EGGS.

Owing-to the larg-e amount of holiday goods arriving- in the city and the  larg-e number of passengers coming-  into the district, the stag-e lines are  unable to handle all the express and  bag-g-ag-e. Several people are waiting-  patiently for their wearing- apparel,  which is stowed away in trunks lying-  at Marcus or Bossburg-, while business  men are anxiously looking-for much-  needed g-oods, which were shipped by  -express. The tie-up at Marcus is  worse than at Penticton. The Snod-  grass stag-e line is g-iving- a g-ood service and extra teams have been put on  to handle overdue express.  There are now three stag-e lines running- between Greenwood and Grand  Forks, and all of them appear to  secure plenty of passeng-ers.  Timber Inspector.  J. D. Murray, provincial  timber inspector,   arrived    in    Greenwood    by  Wednesday's   Penticton   stag-e.      Mr.  Murray   is    here    to    collect    timber  royalties from sawmills and also to investigate   the   charg-es   that    railway  contractors    are    cutting-    timber   on  mineral claims.   Mr. Murray had quite  an   exciting-  experience   on   his   way.  While traveling- on  the  Shuswap and  ���Okanag-an    railway,    just    south     of  Sicamous, the train  jumped the track.  The passeng-ers   were   badly  shaken,  but no one was" seriously injured.  X. P. R. Engineer.  ' Mr. T. G. Sullivan, assistant chief  engineer for the Columbia and Western Railway company, arrived from  Trail on Tuesday nig-ht. Mr Sullivan  went up to Rock Creek to meet the  survey party who are surveying- a  route along- the West Fork of the Kettle river. Mr. Sullivan stated that he  could not say anything- officially concerning- the work on this" side of the  Summit. The work-, will be beg-un  shortly after the-'legislature meets in  January.  Mr. Porter Returns.  W. J. Porter, superintendent of the  Golden Crown mine, returned from the  coast on Wednesday. He went up as  far as Dyea, intending- to g-o to Dawson over the trail. Unfortunately his  partner accidentally discharg-ed a revolver. The bullet struck Mr. Porter  on the hip. Medical assistance was  secured at Dyea. The bullet was extracted, and after several weeks'  medical attendance Mr. Porter was  able to travel. He has now fully recovered.    .  Walter L/. Orde, the secretary of the  Brandon and Golden Crown company,  spent a few days in Greenwood this  week. He was accompanied by Mr.  Reilly, a prominent business man of  Winnipeg-. They went to Camp McKinney. . Mr. Reilly went out by. way"  of Camp McKinney, while Mr. Orde  returned on Wednesday and left on  Thursday for Rossland. Mr. Orde was  surprised at the rapid strides made by  Greenwood since his visit last year.  miif'��� TIJI'ftW T*f "J^ifcf !"*"lrtr"*-!"rT*'rrTWT"  " Companies' Act, 1897.

JAMES  D, SWORD, Manager,  LACK   OF   INTEREST,  Too much prosperity is not a good  thing for Greenwood or Boundary  Creek. When the showers of blessing  were few and light, the people were  wide-awake and always keen to fight  for theier own interests. Now they  appear to be careless and indifferent.  All around them the people have organized and are going to unitedly  fight for that consideration which was  .denied them by the late government.  The Greenwood people have made no  effort. The politicians have changed  biblical injunctions to suit peculiar  political conditions. If you ask, you  seldom receive ; if you don't ask, you  receive never.  Cascade has set the pace in Southern  Yale. Her people are working unitedly  in the interests of that locality. A  petition of rights has been prepared  and presented to the government and  Mr. Martin, member for the district.  The pelition briefly refers to the requirements, including a new school,  more police officers, court house and  jail, small; debts court, roads and  bridges, and,.the. care of the indigent.  The Cascade people have at least  demonstrated that they are alive and  the Greenwood residents should at  least show that they are alive. They  surely have a capacity for taking interest in public affairs outside a municipal campaign.  THE   MORRISON   MINE.  Mr. Fred Oliver, one of the officers  of the Morrison Mining company, was  in the city for a few days this week.  He- visited the Morrison and was  pleased with the progress made. The  shaft is down 70 feet, all in ore. Some  very high gold values have been  secured from the shaft, one sample  yielding- $352. Seven samples averaged,  over $30 in gold. Mr. Oliver also  visited Republic, where he and his associates have heavy   mining- interests.  Deputy Sheriff.  G. B. Taylor has been appointed  deputy sheriff for the southern portion  of Yale district. He has jurisdiction  between Cascade City and Penticton.  Mr. Ta\'lor received his appointment  from Sheriff Pemberton last week.  Sheriff Pemberton, who had been in  the district for some time, returned on  Tuesdaj- toKamloops. The provincial  government recenth^ issued an order  that no provincial police officer could  act as a deputy sheriff.  ^Jiilillliliiilllllliillililllillil.!^  ^���s^X��  fiX**"*-^"  Greenwood,   B.C.  ftl'4        ��'i.        4'C  Store Fronts & Fixtures a Specialty   g^;  a ���    m  a       a  Is the Best Scotch Whisky  ���AND���  9 <��"�����  The Best Canadian.
