Vol. II,  GREENWOOD CITY* B.C., SATURDAY, AUGUST 28, 1897.  51  No, 25,  SOME   MORE   CAMPS.  'OUNDARY CREEK district contains so many important camps that it is almost impossible to make  even a passing reference to all of them in one  article. I^ast week The Times attempted to point  out the importance of Boundary Creek as a mining district,  and referred to all the camps. At least that was the intention, but we find that several of the important camps were  omitted. For instance, Smith's camp, with the I^ast  Chance and Republic mines, where W. T. Smith is doing  extensive work in the interests of the Republic Mining  Company. Mr. Smith has sunk shafts and has splendid  looking ore on the dumps, but he is a big-hearted fellow,  and although he has plenty gold in Smith's camp he is  strong in his denunciation of the Dominion government for  levying a royalty on Yukon gold. There may be some selfishness in Mr. Smith's views, for the Iy'ast Chance ore is so  rich that he may be anxioas lest'the Dominion government  levy a royalty on it also. No less important is the Golconda  group, in which extensive work has been carried on, under  the management of Mr. JVC. Haas. The ore is rich and  there is plenty of it. Kimberley camp is also well worthy  of mention, as is also the new camp beyond the Copper,  where Mr. Bryant has discovered his " Golden Treasure."  Boundary Creek is a wonderful district and with transportation facilities its output will exceed that of any other  district in British Columbia.  The reports of the hardships of those who left for the  Yukon are not pleasant reading and the people of Boundary  Creek showed their good sense by stopping at home.  ���Aie.  *�������     "*J--  AN   UNPROFESSIONAL   CENSOR.  Fortunately for the reputation of journalism in this province the columns of a British Columbia newspaper have seldom been sullied by such a malignant and unprofessional  attack as that, made recently by the Victoria Colonist  against Mr. William Templeman, the managing-editor of  the Victoria Times. In an article nearly two columns in  length, the editor of the Colonist attempts to show cause  why Mr. Templeman should not be the next lieutenant-governor of British Columbia. The gravamen of the Colonist's  charge is contained in the following lines :  " But the instance has yet to occur where the commission  of lieutenant-governor has been given to a man who took  every public occasion at his command to vilify the men who  were to be his advisers, to treat them with studied contempt,  to impugn their personal honesty and their integrity in  office. "  It is rather a startling plea in favor.of bad government to  state that because a newspaper has the courage to denounce  the acts of the Turner government, its managing-editor is  unfitted if or a public position. The Colonist's attack will  not injure Mr. Templeman. His conduct since he became a  public man entitles him to every consideration at the hands  of the federal government. The members of that government are men of good sense and good judgment and the  Colonist's attacks will not have the slightest weight with  them. Mr. Templeman has been the target for the Colonist's malevolence for years and his reputation is still unscathed, the buckler of rectitude is still his.  Probably the silliest of all the sentences in the Colonist's  article, is that containing the suggestion that because the  Victoria Times has seen fit to attack the acts of the provincial government that the three ex-provincial premiers in the  Dominion Cabinet will sympathize with Mr. Turner and  will therefore see that Mr. Templeman does not receive the  appointment. The three ex-premiers referred to have hot  attained trieir present positions through administering public affairs badly and the3r have no sympathy with governments such as Premier Turner's. They are not ignorant  of the fact that the Victoria Times has been waging a  righteous war against the provincial government for years  and still they have the highest regard for Mr. Templeman's  courage and ability. In fact one of them writing under  date of August 15, 1897, states among other things^ commendatory of Mr. Templeman that'* I am convinced that he  is one of the ablest newspaper men we have. "  The Colonist's attack assumes a more serious aspect when  it is considered apart from Mr. Templeman. People ignorant of the circumstances surrounding this venerable newspaper are apt to attach some importance to its utterances. ,  Established nearly 40 years ago they would naturally suppose that, discretion came with years and that it had learned  to treat its contemporaries with respect. If a rent were  made in the veil which conceals the instigators of the diatribes that appear at times, few would be ready to.believe,  anything that is written concerning those who are fortunate enough to be its opponents.  At the present time the controlling interest in. the Colonist is owned by wealthy monopolists who have too great a  pull with the powers that be at Victoria. When the conduct  of the provincial government is criticized too severely, they  pull the string and the Colonist launches forth columns of  abuse. Being at present in charge of an expatriated^Cana-  dian, who during his residence in the United States appears  to have learned all that is vicious in American journalism,  its capacity for this kind of work is very pronounced.  Me.  *�������      ���".'*���  ���"Vl"        ''A"  TO-DAY'S   ELECTION.  To-day the electors will decide who shall compose the  Municipal Council until the first of next year. The question of choice is not a serious one, since only two can be  elected to stop at home and the majority of the nominees  are well fitted for the important duties appertaining to the  efficient administration of civic affairs.  We regret to see that one or two have attempted to make  the contest a sectional one and to prejudice the people on  one .street against those residing on another. There is no  room in Greenwood for sectional differences and the Times  hopes that the aldermen will be chosen irrespective of the  geographical position of their residences or places of business. Those who attempted to stir up strife should be  taught a salutary lesson to-day.  The work of the council should not be hampered by  cranks. The city wants progressive men in the council,  not obstructionists. If there is one of the latter class running, he should be one of the two elected to stop at home.  The opportunity of electing an ideal council will present  itself to-day and we believe it will not be lost.  The Times extends its congratulations to His Worship,  Ma3*or Wood, and to the electors for their good sense in  electing him by acclamation. His past services well deserved such a tribute at their hands and we believe he will use  the important position of Chief Magistrate of Greenwood  solely for the purpose of furthering the best interests of the  city.  While the duties of a mayor of a newly   incorporated city  are many and important, still it is impossible for him to do  efficient work unless he is supported by a wise and progressive council. Whether Greenwood is to have such a council  all depends on how the electors vote to-day. If the municipal machinery does not run smoothly the electors must  assume the responsibility. CREEK   TIMES,  Hon. D. W. Higgins.  Hon. D. W. Hig-g-ins, the Speaker of  the provincial leg-islatnre, was among-  the visitors to Greenwood this week.  Mr. Hig-gins has several mining interests in Kairview and also in Kootenay,  and he is simpl)* making- a tour of inspection of his properties. Politicall3r  he had nothing- to sny for publication.  As is well known, he has already announced his intention of opposing- the  present g-oyernnient, and like another  great politician he is now behind the  lines of Torres Vedras. One thing is  certain, however ; he will refuse to be  the presiding; officer next session and  on the floor of the house he will infuse  new life. As speaker his knowledge  of parliamentary rules and his strict  impartiality has earned for him the  respect and appreciation of members  on both.sides.,  Rossland Miner Sold.  A dispatch from Rossland to the  Spokesman-Review states that ��� the  Rossland Miner has been sold to Tj\ C.  Moffatt, correspondent of the Toronto  Globe, or at least the papers were signed and the stock transferred. The  consideration is said to have been $12,-  000, but the figures are withheld. It is  a cash transaction.  It is rumored that  he   is  purchasing  the paper for F. Aug. Heinze.    Hitherto it has  been  run   in opposition to ah  export duty, and incidentally favoring  the Le Roi people  and   the   Northport  smelter.    The presumption is thepolicy  of the paper will be changed, although  nothing    is    definitely    known.    The  paper  was  started  by D. W. Bogle in  1895, and was   purchased   by  John   R.ff  Reavis and H. W. G. Jackson   in   1896.  They  have  been  the   owners   of   the  paper ever since.  The Fairview Mines.  Higgins   came  in  from  left the fol-  He. reports  Hon. D. W.  Fairview Wednesday and  lowing day for Rossland.  a scene of activity at Fairview. The  Smuggler Co. are crushing* rock in the  old Stratheyre mill and have taken  about $2,000 from the plates. Six tons  of concentrates, which assay upwards  of $100 to the ton, remain to be treated.  The company claim that the rock will  3*ield $17 to the ton and if this prove  correct it will be understood by mining  ���men that as the quantity of ore is practically unlimited, the mine .must pay  largely. The site for the new Smug*-  irler mill has been selected and survev-  ed on the townsite.  The Joe Dandy Co., having- fully  perfected their ground, have ordered a  mill of 220 stamps.  The Tin Horn mine, owned by Dier,  Davidson & Co., of. Victoria, is being*  vigorously developed. The tunnels,  three in number, are all in free g*old  ore. Top, sides and bottom show a  solid mass from 8 to 30 feet in width.  The rock assays well. The Tin Horn  mill is approaching* completion. It is  of the latest and most approved design  and fitted with ever}* appliance for the  economical handling* of ore.  A great deal of building is g*oing on  at Fairview. The handsome new hotel  is about finished. The outlook is favorable and the result of the Tin Horn's  first crushing is awaited -with interest.  F. M. Kerby, P. Iv. S., has completed  the survey of Mr. W. Shaw's clair  Ontario, located in Summit camp.

Cay ley, a  barrister of Grand Forks, has gone to  Vernon to be married to the 3roungest,  daughter of Mr. W. B. Cochrane, of  that city.  Mr. R. Smailes, of the firm of Rendell & Co., has been seriously ill for a  week' but his many friends will be  pleased to learn that he is now on the  road to speedy recovery.  Mr. Fergerson of Boundary Falls  was exhibiting- some coarse gold which  he brought from Boundary creek the  other day. He secured a return of 33  cents for less than half a yard of  gravel.  There is a sort ��f epidemic among  the horses of the district. W.G. Mc-  Mynn of Midway lost a valuable animal this week and J. C. Haas has one  that is under the treatment of Dr.  Christie.-     ��  Mr. W. T. Smith has met with encouraging success in the work of developing* the Mountain Rose claim in  Summit camp. A well defined vein 18  feet wide has been crosscutted and the  ore is high grade.  Work on the wragon road to the  Mother Lode will begin in a few days.  Messrs. Keffer and Mcfarlane have  each contributed a substantial sum to  augment the $100 given towards the  road given by the government.  Wm. McMillan, the manager of the  Mac-Machine Company, paid Greenwood a business visit this week. This  company's headquarters are at Belleville, Ont., but they have a branch  office and repairing* works at Trail.  Dr. Bell Irving-, a prominent physician and business man of Vancouver,  came in with Mr. J. W. McFarland and  spent the week in examining properties  in the different camps. Dr. Bell Irving is interested in mines in Kootenay.  The Buttercup claim owned by J.  Farrell and located in Welling-ton  camp is showing* up well under development work. A shaft is being- sunk  and other work is being carried on.  The ore gives good values and the  ledges are large and well defined.  Mr. Lee of Rossland was among* the  visitors to Greenwood this week. He  came over to look at some properties in  which he is interested and also to consult Messrs. Wood and Galloway of the  Townsite Co., in connection, with 54  lots which a Rossland sjmdicate purchased in Greenwood last spring.  J. P. Graves, the manager of the  companies operating the Ironsides and  Knob Hill in Long- Lake camp, is expected from Spokane early next week.  The machinery is now between Grand  Forks and Greenwood and will be  placed in position immediately upon  its arrival at the mine.

During- his visit at Grand Forks an  impromptu meeting* was held with Mr.  P. T. McCallum^ J. P. in the chair.  After speeches by K. M. Johnson, of  Victoria, Charles Hay and others, Hon.  Mr. Martin addressed the meeting-.  His remarks on railways are reported  by the Grand Forks Miner as follows :  -'Reg-arding the. railway policy of  the g-overnment," he would say, '-that  it was doing- everything in its power  to hasten the construction of a line  through this district. During- the last  session of the legislature, Mr. Turner  and the members of his cabinet had  prepared a measure the main object of  which was to aid the construction of a  road between the Columbia river and  Penticton; this measure provided for a  cash bonus of $4,000 a mile to the company building", the road, provided it was  completed within two years from the  passage of the act. The bill had been  practically killed by an amendment  talked on by Mr. Graham the member  from this constituency. This amendment provided that in the event that  Mr. Heinze accepted the $4,000 a mile  he would forfeit his land grant. To  the surprise of everybody this amendment carried."  Thither Hon. Mr. Martin has been incorrectly reported or he has attempted  to prejudice his hearers against Mr.  Graham. The amendment he referred  to was not moved b3* Mr. Graham but  by Mr. Sword of Dewdney. A reference to the votes and proceedings for  April 22, 1897, will prove this.  TRIBUTARY TO GREENWOOD.  The outspoken bluntness of the  Grand Forks Miner is delightfully refreshing. Probably its conscience is  troubling it for its neglect in the past  in not having done justice to Greenwood, and now the Miner moralizes  after this fashion:  " Those who are spending their time  and money in an endeavor to develop  the resources of the country are going  to purchase their supplies at the point  which is the most easy of access, even  if it necessitates the travel of a few  miles further. It is a well known fact  that Mr. Robert Wood, the founder of  our enterprising sister city Greenwood,  aided by the merchants of that place,  has responded liberally to every call  made for assistance in the building- of  roads and trails. As a result Greenwood is to-day connected with every  camp of any prominence within a  radius of 10 miles of that place by  either a good wagon road or a trail, and  the trade that is naturallj' tributary'to  Grand Forks has been forced to that  town for no other reason than there is  good roads and trails leading to it."  We do not like to be too inquisitive  but the Miner might name the camps  which are naturally tributary to Grand  Forks.  iff  SE  wijju      *<$w      >jgu      ��jyw      lJ&*      *&*      lj@*f      ^Q* :��� "9"      *9*   ���   ������*      ^"*       t*t"      ^S^  W.

During the week, the topic of conversation in mining- and business circles  was the closing down of the Jewel  mine in H/ong I^ake camp. As the  Prospecting Syndicate of B. C. who  bonded this property had a large number of men employed and had purchased all their supplies in Greenwood, the  closing down of the mine would be a  serious matter in more ways than one.  The Prospecting" Syndicate asked for  an extension of time and the owners,  have refused to agree to the new arrangements 'suggested by the syndicate.  The Jewel and the   adjoining   property, the Denero Grande, were   bonded  by   the   Prospecting   Syndicate   from  Messrs. McArthur, Shonquist, Ditmer,  -Bosshart and Garland.    In January of  this   year,   the   Syndicate   started   to  work.    Under the management  of Mr.  Iveslie Hill, M. 10.,' a  sleigh  road four  miles in length was constructed   to the  mine.    A  hoisting  engine  and   boiler  were sent   in   and a double   compartment   shaft was   sunk to the depth of  133  feet.    The shaft was  closely timbered, one side   making   a  ventilating  shaft.    At 120 feet levels,were  driven  both ways, ' 78 feet north and  217  feet  6 inches south.    An upraise was put in  from the 120 foot level   underneath the  old Denero Grande shaft, a distance of  54 feet.    A   winze was sunk 47 feet below  the  120-foot  level.    The  mine  is  furnished with T-rail   tracks   and cars  and hoisting buckets.    From 150 to 250  barrels of water had to be hoisted each  day.    A  pump  was brought to Greenwood but did not arrive here in time to  be  sent   to   the   mine  over the sleigh  road.    The Prospecting Syndicate contributed $250 towards   constructing the  road   to   Ivong*   I^ake.    On    an  or  16  men   were employed  and all supplies were  purchased   here.  The Prospecting Sj^ndicate  have developed   the  property   in   a   thorough  miner-like manner.    They have pushed  the work continuously   and   have done  everything    possible   to   develop   the  mine,  Having heard the rumor that the  Jewel was to be closed down a Times  representative visited the office of the  manag*er and found there Mr. Hill and  Mr. J. W. McFarland. Mr. McFarland  is a member of the firm of Mahon, McFarland and Mahon, of Vancouver,  and is a director of the Prospecting  Syndicate. He reached Greenwood on  Saturday last, his object being if possible   to   make   such   arrangements as  wag-on  average 15  would enable.his company to  continue  the work of development. ,  " The final payments are due on Saturday, (to-day),'' said Mr. Hill, " and  while the developments were at times  encouraging thejr have not proven  altogether satisfactorily. There is  not sufficient ore in sight to justify  heavy payments and therefore the  company shut down. We are willing  to continue the work of development  and wrote to the owners asking for an  extension of time but this was not  granted. The Prospecting Syndicate  is still willing, to go on and develop the  property if satisfactory arrangements  can be made."  Development such as has been carried on at the Jewel is of the greatest  importance to the district and The  Times hopes that its contintta.nce shall  be assured by the completion of arrangements satisfactory to all the  parties concerned.  The Prospecting Syndicate have not  lost faith in Iyong L-ake camp or Boundary Creek district. If arrangements  are not made regarding the Jewel and  Denero Grande, they will begin the  work of developing the North Star',  which they have bonded from Messrs.  Wood and Thomet. ���  The work on the Ironsides,inGreen-  wdod camp is progressing satisfactorily. Contractor Mclntyre is now in  easier rock and. more .rapid development is being made; Mir. J. F. Hem-  enway, the manager, has gone to Marcus to look after the bringing in of the  heavy machine^ for the property.  YDNEY M.  JOHNSON,  B. A.Sc.

"3 -P^rf l^fe  Saturday's Storm.  . Ivast Saturday Greenwood was visited by a miniature cyclone which blew  down decayed trees and raised the dust  to such, an extent that it was almost  impossible to see two feet ahead. W.  Eller who is employed by the Greenwood Charcoal Company had the closest call. A tree fell across his tent in  the valley and upset a cooking stove in  which a fire had been lighted. Mr.  Eller ran to a clear space when J. M.  Custance who was at Shaw's camp  noticed that the tent had become ignited from the fire in the stove and would  soon be destroyed. He succeeded in  quenching the blaze. It was well he  did so for the tent L contained not only  "Mr. Eller's personal effects but also  $50 in cash which he had been paid  that day.  The storm spent its fury in a short  time. It possessed the one advantage  of clearing the air and thereby making  existence more pleasant.  A Fairview Company.  The current issue of the B. C. Gazette contains the certificate of the reincorporation and registration of " The  Fairview Consolidated Gold Mines Co.,  of Fairview, Ltd." The company has  been formed to acquire the White  Swan, Quartz Queen, California, Rob  Roy, Sundown, Ocean Wave, Silver  Bow, Iron Clad, Reco, Fannie Morris,  Nightingale and Standard mineral  claims in camp Fairview. The capital of the company is $975,000.  Skylark Will Ship.  It is the intention of the owners of  the Skylark mine in Skylark camp, to  ship about 50 tons of ore to Helena,  Montana, this fall. The ore will be  hauled in wagons to Marcus and from  there it will be shipped by rail to the  smelter. As the Skylark ore is of a  very hig*h grade, it will easily pay the  cost of transportation and leave a large  profit. Shipments of ore were made  from this mine some time ago. Mr. C.  E- Reuger, the manager, has succeeded  in "getting all the water out of the  shaft. A new ventilating furnance  has been placed in position and six  ���miners are at work getting out ore.

The  g-uag-e to Rossland is to be widened,  and more important still, the railroad  to Penticton will be built, and built  immediately.

After   the   service the   advisability   of   erecting  a   Catholic   church  was  discussed   and   a   larg*e   sum   of  money   was    promised.    During*     the  week, other  sums were promised until  nearly 3?600 was secured for   the building   of   the church.

MODEST  DEMANDS.  The interests of Boundary Creek district demand  that the provincial government should carry out the promises  made   by   the   Chief Commissioner of  Eands and Works during- his visit here.  That gentleman while in other parts of  the province has been   forced to  listen  to  importunities of those appearing- to  be imbued with the idea that a government existed in the  province solely for  the purpose of granting" them what they  demanded   and   consequently   he  felt  gratified that the  people  of Boundai-3-  Creek   were   so moderate in  their   demands.    Nothing-  is   asked for tha.t is  not absolutely required  and this in   itself is a strong*  reason   why the people  should not be disappointed.    A road to  Copper   camp   will  open  a way to the  Sunset and the Mother  Eode  where  a  larg-e number of men are employed and  large quantities of supplies are consumed.    Beyond the Mother Eode are also  properties    to   which   a   wagon   road  shoud be built.    The road to Summit  camp will pass through numerous promising- claims  which are being* developed and as there is an easy  grade   from  Greenwood along* Eholt creek, the cost  will not be great.    The   improvements  of the leading- trunk roads should also  be tinder taken, particularly  when it is  considered that the  people  paid  taxes  to the government and in the past have  in the majority of cases built their own  roads.  The Greenwood hospital is an institution which should receive more liberal treatment at the hands of the government. As the Chief Commissioner  .expressed himself "It is a credit to the  builder and to, Dr. Jakes who has  charg-e," but we cannot say that it is  creditable to the government to allow  this hospital no assistance while less  deserving* institutions aire each year  given thousands of dollars of provincial money.  B. C. RE-BONDED.  A mining* property that can be,bonded for $60,000 and re-bonded for the  same amount within 24 hours after the  conditions attached to the first bond  have not been complied with must be  such as to command the admiration of  mining- men. Frequent bonding- usually gives a " black eye" to an undeveloped property but when the vein is  largo, and well defined, when the ore is  sampled and returns are high, bonding-  only helps to advertise the property  and make it famous. Such was the  result in the case of the Winnipeg and  history is beginning to repeat, itself in  the case of the B. C. claim in Summit  camp.  This is a property which has been  prominent^- before the public for the  last six months. Located about a year  ago, it was not considered an extraor-  dinai-y mining* claim and the original  locator was satisfied to let it remain  undeveloped. Messrs. Keough & Sons  .made a new strike on the property this  spring* and bought out the original  owner for a small sum of money. In a  month's time the3r had what all mining-  experts declared was the most promising property in the whole district.  Mining- experts swarmed to it from all  quarters and soon Messrs. Keough &  Sons had ma 113- offers. Througii Mr.  G. H. Collins, the manager of the Golden Crown, Mr. A. E. McEwen succeeded in bonding the property for $60,000.  Mr. McEwen is an experienced mining-  engineer who knows a good thing when  he sees it. He cabled his principals,  the Mines Selection Co., of Eondon,  England, and at once put six men to  work opening up the claim. The directors of the Mines Selection Company  evidently took down their maps on receipt of their expert's cablegram ; they  looked them over ; they probably measured the distance from Boundary Creek  to a railway and then cabled that they  were in doubt as to whether it would  be well to bond a property so far away  from railroad transportation.  The B. C. was too valuable a property to be dependent upon the doubts of  moneyed riien 5000 miles away, so the  answer of the Londoners was ho sooner  received than Mr. A. H. Harrison  bonded the property for $60,000. The  bond is a three months working one  and he has now six men at work. The  B. C. looks mbre promising as the work  proceeds and it will assuredly become  one of the biggest and most profitable  producers in the province.  Mr. Harrison has been in Greenwood  for nearly a year. He also represents  English capital. East week, he bonded the Susie in Fairview camp and he  has also valuable properties on Myers  Creek.  A  Provincial Convention.  The Eiberal Association of the province intend holding a convention at  New Westminister during the Fair  week, for the purpose of organizing for  the coming campaign against the provincial government. It is proposed  that each Dominion r Electoral district  in the province shall send 15 delegates  to the convention and the indications  are that the full quota will be present  from every* district. As far as can be  ascertained it is not the intention of  the Liberals to form a rival opposition  party, their only object being to secure  an honest and efficient provincial government and will therefore work with  the present provincial opposition to  overthrow the Turner government.  A New Saw Mill.  A. R. Tillman has sold his residence  and lots in Anaconda to J. W. Eind  and will erect a saw-mill atMcCuddy's,  west of the summit on the road leading  to Fairview. Mr. Tillman is an experienced saw-mill man, having until  recently been a member of the Boun-  Creek Milling & Lumber Company.

There is an old saying that where  there is much smoke there must be  some fire and it is equally true that  when there are so hi any railway rumors being circulated there must beat  least shadows of truth in some of them.  Appearances lead the observer to believe that the C. P. "R. have shaken off  its lethargy, and that its officers are  now determined to secure at least its  share of the Southern B. C. trade.  They have already declared their inten-:  tion of getting into Rossland as speedily as possible. Mr. Brown, the executive officer of the company, has been in  Boundary Creek district looking over  the situation and anxious to secure information regarding the probabilities  of trade for a railway in this district.  He was naturally astonished at the  growth of the district and if a favorable report from him will have any  weight with the head officers of the  company a railway will be built into  the district by the C. P. R. Then  Heinze is wakening up and has his surveyors working towards Christina  Eake. Corbin, too, is saying nothing  but is " sawing wood." He still has  an eye on Boundary Creek and-intends  coming up here in a few weeks.o Any  company building a road into the district must reckon with him. Taking  everything- into consideration, the situation is more favorable than it has  been for months past and The Times  does not pose as a railroad prophet but  ventures the opinion that active construction work on a railroad into the  district will be begun before snow  ���flies'. ' c.l?' "<������   '  County Court,? Sittings.  The time has arrived when regular  -sittings of the County Courjt should be  held at Greenwood. We understand  that Judge Spinks promised some time  ago that County Court should be held  here and the convenience of the public  demands that the promise should be  fulfilled. At the last sitting of the  County Court held at Midway nearly  every case tried were those in which  Greenwood or Anaconda parties were  interested. Increased witness and solicitors' and traveling expenses are the  result. The cost of litigation in this  country is heavy enough without having the unsuccessful litigants mulcted  in extra costs because of their having  to go away from home to have ordinary  County Court cases tried. Work has  already commenced on the new court  house and we hope that when it is completed Judge Spinks will find it convenient, to hold court here.  The Snowshoe.  R. Denzler came in on Thursday  from the Snowshoe mine where he and  Thos. McDonnell are hard at work carrying on development work. Recent  work has demonstrated that the Snow-  shoe is even a better property than  was at first supposed. As evidence of  the quality of the ore, Mr. Denzler  brought down a big block that looks as  if it were pure copper. Assays gave a  return of over 25 per cent copper.  A Mining Accident.  What might easily have been a fatal  accident took place at the Golden  Crown Mine, on Monday last. The  man at the top of  the  mine was about  to lower a bucket and thinking it -was  securely fastened to the hook swung it  over. The big iron bucket shot down  to the bottom, fifty feet below. Wm.  Hanna a well known miner was working at the bottom of the shaft. Fortunately he was stooping at the time  and the side of the bucket struck him  on the hip. He was soon brought to  the surface and Dr. Jakes was summoned. He found that Mr. Hanna did  not receive the full force of the bucket  and that while he is rather seriously  injured, the chances of a full and  speedy recovery are the best. n  Prominent Railway Officials.  Vice-President Shaughnessy of the  Canadian Pacific Railway Company is  at present in Kootenay and has announced that it is the intention of the  C, P. R. to get a line into Rossland as  speedily as possible. Mr. Shaughnessy  is accompanied by George McE. Brown  and other railway officials and it is  possible that they may visit Boundary  Creek before the vice-president returns  east. .'������....'."' ."'���'"���'  Mr. J. P.
