GREENWOOD, B.C., SATURDAY,   AUGUST 20, 1898,  102  3 No, 24  nuumH.w-vm i  One of  the Big Greenwood Camp  Properties  Under Bond to an English Syndicate,  A Steam Plant to be Purchased Immediately for  the Further Development of Property,  The probability of securing transportation facilities in  the near future is an incentive to mine owners to more vigorously prosecute the work of developing their properties.  In all parts of the district a renewed activity is noticeable.  Steam plants are being* installed and additional men employed. A railway is not the only encouragement. As  development work proceeds, the ore bodies become more  regular and pronounced, values increase and all indications  justify the expenditure of larger sums of money in the purchase of machinery and other requirements necessary in  the development of large properties. Among the mines  which have turned out encouragingly must be''classed the  Snowshoe.  The Snowshoe is situated in Greenwood camp about six  miles from the city of Greenwood.    It is  one of  the half-a-dozen big properties that have made Greenwood the banner  camp of Boundary Creek district.    The Snowshoe  is   a full  claim, 1500 by 1500 feet.    It is crown granted...   It  was  formerly owned by Messrs. Thos.   McDonnell, R. Denzler and  W. W. Gibbs.    Mayor Wood of Greenwood about a year ago  acquired Mr. Gibbs' interest in  the property.    The  Snow-  shoe proved attractive   to mining   men ',; since   it was first  located.    It  was. examined  by  experts   and  many   efforts  were made to purchase or bond the property.    At last   Patrick Clark the well known mining man secured a bond and  he did considerable development work.    Mr.   Clark  became  heavily interested in the Republic   mine   and  for  financial  reasons he was reluctantly compelled to give  up  the  bond  on the Snowshoe.    No sooner was this done than the Kootenay Development Company rebonded the property for  $65-  000.    The Kootenay Development Company is an   aggregation of Bnglish capitalists.    Mr. G. D. MacKay is the resident manager and agent and Mr. Reinz W. Macfarlane consulting engineer for the company.    The Kootenay Development Company has already  paid $6,500 on   account  of the  bond.  When the Kootenay Development Company began work  in January of this year, a 70-foot shaft had been sunk on  the Snowshoe ; also a 17-foot shaft and considerable drifting and crosscutting.  The Kootenay Development Company sank an incline  shaft 170 feet. At the 70-foot level a cross cut was made  for a distance of 38 feet in ore, and at 120 feet 175 feet of  drifts and crosscuts were run, Two ore veins were encountered about 100 feet apart. One vein is 40 feet wide while  No. 2 vein has been cross cut from the foot wall but the  hanging wall has not yet been reached. The ore is copper  pyrites in a mixed gangue of calcite with some specularite  and iron pyrites. From the old 17-foot shaft values $10 to  $50 in gold and 3 to 16 per cent, copper have been secured.  The ore is self fluxing. Mr. Geo. A. Guess, M. A., who has  been in charge of the development work on the property  during Mr. Macfarlane's absence  has made several   analy-  An   average   sample  gives  the   following  14.6  per cent.  4.5 per cent.  23.2 per cent.  17.4 per cent.  4. per cent.  $10 to $15.  assay  furnace  secured a good  ses of the  ore.  returns :  Sulphur  ... .. . .. . ... .. ...... . .... . . ...... . .. .  5--S 111 c* "^ .

Mr. Guess  button of matte from ore treated in his assay furnace.  The value and importance of this quality of ore cannot  be over estimated. The profits arising from mines giving  higher values are often lessened because the ores are too  silicious and contain little or no lime, making, it necessary  to mix with other ores or barren fluxes to secure a proper  proportion of flux, thus adding to the cost of treatment.  Snowshoe ore can be smelted for a mimimum price, thus  giving to the operators of the mines the highest per centage  of profit.  Since the work began in January last 16 men were employed on the property. OnMonday last the work was discontinued not because the Kootenay Development Company  was not satisfied with the property but because it was found  necessary to secure a steam plant to properly carry on the  development work. The old horse whim which did service  when the shaft was a few feet deep is a slow process at a  depth of 170 feet. The company intend purchasing a steam  plant immediately. The plant will include a powerful  boiler and engine and a hoist and pump. It will be taken  to the property as soon as possible when work will be  resumed with increased vigor. A raise is to be made from  drift on the No. 2. ore body at the 120-foot level. This upraise when it reaches the surface will be turned into a  double compartment working shaft 6x8 feet in the clear.  This shaft will be sunk to the 300-foot level and cross cutting and drifting carried, out at different levels.  The buildings at the Snowshoe include a boarding-  house and bunk house, a foreman's residence and a shaft  house. These will be added to when the machinery is procured. The branch railway from the Summit to the Greenwood and Wellington camp mines will pass through the  Snowshoe. Mr. Rice the C. P. R. engineer has already run  the lines from the Summit, securing an easy grade for this  portion of the railway. This branch line will give the  required transportation facilities.  The outlook for the Snowshoe is most encouraging. The  mine itself has proved .anything but disappointing to those  who believe it was only necessary to develop the property  to uncover large ore bodies of good value. The Snowshoe  is in charge of a company with sufficient capital to thoroughly develop the same and place it on a shipping basis  and the ore if not treated on the ground will be eagerly  sought after by custom smelters.  tif  ttf-  tif  A rather serious bush fire occurred on the Brooklyn this  week. The fire threatened to wipe out all the buildings in  the vicinity of the mine. The men from the Stemwinder  and Brooklyn and the Ironsides were called out and after a  hard battle succeeded in checking- the progress of the fire.  Another fire started above the residence of Mr. C. 2Et. Shaw  and worked towards Mr. Holbrook's residence. It exhausted itself before much damage was done. Unless greater  care is taken regarding bush fires during the exceedingly  dry weather serious losses are likely to be the result.  w*?  t,p  *5*il>  ]\tr. J. C.

The Bank of Montreal will open a  branch in Greenwood in a few weeks.  After carefully sizing* up the different  towns of the district, its officers decided  that Greenwood is the financial, commercial and mining* centre, and the  branch for southern Yale will be located here.  It was a  formidable  array  of  bank  officials   who  visited  Greenwood  this  week.      Mr.   Campbell   Sweeney,  the  ' general manager for the province, Mr.  J. S. G.  Fraser,   the  manag*er  of the  Rossland branch, and Mr. G.  A.   Henderson, nianag*er of the Vernon branch,  met in   Greenwood  and  discussed  the  situation   from   a  Bank  of, Montreal  standpoint.      Messrs.     Sw;eeney    and  Fraser   came   in   by   way   of   Grand  Forks.      They  were  accompanied by  Messrs.     Hector,   McRae    and    Ross  Thompson. Bank managers are usually  corpulent g*entlemen, living*  witnesses  of the  efficacy  of good  fare.    One of  the bug*g*ies could not stand too  much  bank avoirdupois and collapsed at the  Winnipeg  mine.      The   mishap  could  not have happened at  a  better  place,  for the bank officials  were  hospitably  entertained for the iiig*ht  by  Mr.   and  Mrs. Honey and Mr.   Mcintosh   at  the  mine.    The buggy  was  repaired   and  the travellers  reached  Greenwood  on  Sunday without further  mishap.    Mr.  Henderson came in on- Sunday's  Penticton stage from Vernon.  Mr. Sweeney is not communicative  as far as bank business is concerned.  He freely expressed his satisfaction,  however, at the substantial and prosperous appearance of Greenwood. As  an earnest of his faith in the future of  the city he personally invested in three  lots, purchased on Monday from the  townsite company. The lots are 5, 6  and 7, block 23', and face Government  street about three blocks above the  court-house. Mr. Sweeney stated that  Greenwood was in his opinion the mining centre of the district and the Bank  of Montreal wanted the mining* business. After carefull}'- enquiring* into  the amount of business transacted  here, the officers telegraphed i\Jr. F. S.  Barnard to change the plans for his  Copper street block about to be erected,  so that the ground floor could be used  for bank purposes. This will probably  be done. The building* is centrally  located," being only a short distance  from the corner of Greenwood and  Copper streets, at present the leading  business corner of the city.  In all probability the decision; in  favor of Greenwood was in a measure  due to the fact that a larg*e   amount of  Greenwood    business    is     transacted  throug-h the Bank of Montreal at Vernon.    This business   has  been  of  the  most satisfactory nature to  the   bank,  as Greenwood  business  men   have established   a   reputation    for   meeting  their   payments  promptly   and   doing  business in  a business  way.    Messrs.  Fraser and Ross Thompson left Greenwood for Republic  on   Monday  morning*, while Messrs. Sweeney  and   Henderson left on  Monday  afternoon  for  Vernon.    Mr. Sweene}r has  been making* a tour throug*h the mining* districts  and   will  return   to  Vancouver    from  Vernon.

DAY   LABOR.  The city cannot afford to   allow contracts   to   experiment   on   the streets ;  neither   can   the  city afford  to  allow  aldermen    to     experiment   with   city  funds.    Heretofore    the    city   council  were practically playing* at  municipal  government and municipal administration ; there was very little for  them to  -do  and  they  did that little well;   now  the members of the  council  are about  to take charge of the  expenditure of a  large sum of money when   the  size  of  -the town is considered.    The expenditure of that sum should   not depend upon the  prices  quoted   in   the   tenders  from    contractors.    The    expenditure  .should be governed by business principles and the business .judgment  of the  council.    There are two ways of carrying out  civic   improvements���a    right  way and a wrong way.    The wrong way  is to give a   contractor  a license to do  ..scamp   work,   to   act as   immigration  agent for cheap  dago   labor;   to  milk  the city <in the shape of extras ; to keep  the city in a legal quagmire for  years  .   to come and to delay the completion of  much needed works until his impudent  .demands are satisfied by the city.    The  right   way   is   to engage a   competent  man who assumes all the responsibility  for the work,   pays  fair  wages,  gives  f he hard working ratepayers a chance,  sees that the work is  done thoroughly,  -employs men who  make  their  homes  in the city and spend the money earned  in the city, who secures for the city an  lion est day's work for   an honest day's  pay.  A few years ago the city of Victoria  decided to improve its water spstem by  the construction of filter beds and other  needed improvements. Tenders were  called for. John Haggerty tendered  for $68,000 and Wakely King & Casey  for $73,000. The council awarded the  contract to Wakel}*-, King & Casey, because they were considered safe, reliable, honest men. The specifications  were prepared by one of the best engineers in the province; the contract  was drawn up by one of the brightest  lawyers in the province; the contractors  put up the usual deposit ; they were  -only paid a certain percentage of the  contract price on all work done. Every  -one congratulated every one else on  the fact that for once they had contractors who would do right and were  -lied down to do right.  Walkely, King,& Casey went to work.  They scoured the Sound cities for  cheap labor. They employed men drivers for foremen ; they forced every one  to board at their boarding-house where  cheap fare was provided , strikes were  frequent, lawsuits followed. It is now  nearly three years since the contract  -was to have been completed-; it is not  completed yet and the filter beds have  cost Victoria over $100,000 in work and  lawsuits and all the other incidentals  ,of the contract system. Walkely, King  & Casey were responsible bona fide  contractors ; they followed the usual  practice adopted by contractors on  city work.  The city  of  Victoria  spent  several  -thousand dollars in the construction of  surface drains. The work was done  by day labor. A good foreman was  employed, fair wages were paid. The  work was completed within the time  specified and at a less cost than the  engineer's estimate. There were no  strikes nor lawsuits.  The Greenwood city council must  have sufficient courage to do the city  work in the right way or fall back on  the more convenient method of shifting the responsibility upon contractors  who will probably do justice neither to  the city nor to the employes.  Messrs. Gill and Miller of the Inland  Revenue department paid Greenwood  an official visit this week. Mr. Gill is  inspector for the province and Mr.  Miller is inspector at Vancouver. Mr.  Finlay inspector of weights and meas;  ures accompanied them.  Best   value  for  your  money  in.  all  lines at L,AW & Co.'s.  MINERAL    ACT,    1896.  Certificate   of   Improvements.

Mr. Beaven late last  week notified the Ivieutenant-g-overnor  that he was unable to form a cabinet.  The L/ieutenatit-g*overnor at once summoned Mr. Semlin and entrusted him  with the work of forming* a cabinet.  Mr. Semlin offered the Attorney-g*en-  eralship to Joe Martin. Mr. Martin at  first refused but afterwards consented.  Mr. F. C. Cotton accepted the position  of Minister of Finance. Mr. Semlin  takes the position of Chief Commissioner of LVands and Works. The three  ministers were sworn in on Monday  afternoon and immediately took charge  of their department. -  The other ministers have not been  appointed. It is reported that Robert,  Green, of Kaslo, is to be Minister  of Mines and an Island man Provincial Secretary.  THE B. C. MINE,  The B. C. mine was closed down this  week. Work will be resumed in a few  months. The management decided to  close down as they now have over 2000  tons of hig-h.grade ore on the dump  and a large quantity of ore in sight in  the mine. Before work will be resumed a more powerful plant will be purchased and then the work will be continued until shipping facilities are secured.  The B. C. is the best developed mine  in the district: When Messrs. Harrison  and Barchard began developing the  property in January, the only work  done was a 50-foot shaft and some  drifts and crosscuts. Now there is a  170 foot shaft and considerable cross-  cutting.  Mr. Harrison some time ago secured  an extension of time on account of the  final payment of $27,000. It is reported that he does not intend to avail himself of the extension but will pay the  $27,000 to Messrs. Keotigh & Sons today.  The property was bonded for $60,000.  It is stated that recently several flattering offers have been made for the  B. C. as high as half a million being  reported.  The friends of prohibition are organizing for the campaign in connection  with the approaching plebiscite. The  prohibitionists claim they will carry  every province in the Dominion excepting Quebec and British Columbia.  The annual meeting of the Press  Association of Washington and Oregon  will be held in Spokane on Aug-ust 25th  26th and 27th. All the newspaper men  of Idaho, Montana and British Columbia have been invited to attend.  The works of the Jenckes Machine  Co. of Sherbrooke, Que., have been  destroyed b3r fir-?.

Iviettten ant-govern or Mclnnes' peculiar action has resulted in placing*  the  opposition   party   in  office.    The government  formed  by Mr.   Semlin   will  likely   remain   in   power   for  several  years.    In all probability   Mr.   Semlin  will meet the legislature  and although  there is   a possibility   of defeat   there  an appeal to the country will give him  a large majority.    There are  also  the  election protests to be considered.    All  indications   point    to   these going   in  favor of the party led by  Mr.   Semlin.  The new government begins its career  under   the   most   encouraging  circumstances.    The province is  beginning a  new era in its history.    If  the  Semlin  administration   does its  duty,   it   can  remain in power for many years.    If it  fails  to  appreciate   the  importance of  the task   which it  has  undertaken  or  does not properly meet tne new   conditions which are arising it will soon   be  relegated to the opposition.    The  people will no longer tolerate a slipshod or  incompetent government. We feel  confident that Mr. Semlin's administration will be successful because every  section of the province will receive  just treatment   and the people  will  be  considered more than designing individuals.  The   Telephone   Line.  Good progress is being made with  the telephone line between Grand  Forks and Greenwood. Nearly all the  poles are up and the wire is strung  past the Winnipeg*. The line should  be in working order in a week.  From all reports the rates levied by  the company are almost prohibitive  excepting- for the most urgent business. The rate from Grand Forks is  one dollar per minute for the use of the  phone to Rossland.    The rates   on this  side where there is no competition are  compar��itivehr much higher than on  the other side of the line where the  competition is keen.  ���������  -^*^rs***��  (ga��*w~  ~%rfW***>  *^^s**)  Greenwood,   B.C.   ��0  tip    tip     tip  Law:& Co.'S goods simply cannot be  beaten.

That   portion   of   Rossland   district  which belonged to lOast Yale  until  it  pleased the now  defeated government  and its supporters to  gerrymander the  province, is in a peculiarly   anomalous  .; position.    It is a  portion  of  the  electoral district of Rossland, while it still  has to look for crumbs from the appropriation made for the   constituency of  Kast Yale.    It is  only   natural   to   expect   that   crumbs  will   be  Boundary-  Creek's portion   and  that  the  crumbs  will  be   very  small   indeed.    The   expenditure of   money   on   roads,   trails,  streets and bridges is under the  direction of  Mr.   Leonard  Norris,  government agent, etc., etc.,   with   headquarters  at  Vernon.      Now   Mr.   Leonard  Norris is a good government agent and  an   impartial   man,   but   government  agents must yield to the  stronger and  more importunate political influences.  Hence the'main portion of the  appropriation is spent in the more populous  portions of  the  district,   while  Boundary Creek has to be satisfied with the  crumbs.  The point we wish to make clear is  this : That so long* as Boundary Creek  belongs to one electoral district and  must look to another district for a  share of appropriations, and to the officials of another district to carry out  the expenditure of that share, so long  will the result be anything but satisfactory to the residents of Boundary  Creek district. The people of this district will never secure , proper recognition in provincial politics until they  are granted a representative. If that  representation is not to be speedily secured, Boundary Creek district should  be placed under control of the member  whom its people helped to elect and  placed upon such a footing that it can  demand a fair share of the appropriations voted by the legislature.  We hope that one of the first acts of  the new government will be the passage of a fair redistribution bill. The  supporters of the Turner government  from the mainland would vote for such  a measure. Such a bill must necessarily recognize the right of Boundary  Creek district to representation. The  people, then, ought to be alive to their  own interests. In order to make as  strong a case as possible in favor of  this district, it is necessary that every  voter should be registered. The Times  has frequently pointed out that there  are many people, residents of the district, who are properly' qualified but  who have neglected to register. They  should do so at once.  THE   CAR5B00   MINE.  The Cariboo mine in Camp McKinney is to pass into the hands of a new  company which has been organized  under the laws of British Columbia  and which will own five claims in addition to the two which constitute the  property of the present company. The  new organization will also be capitalized for $1,250,000, instead of $800,000,  the capital stock at present.  Toronto people form the majority of  the directorate  of   the   new   company.  tor  PURE    DRUGS,      DRUGGISTS'     SUNDRIES,  PATENT   A\EDICINES,   CIGARS,    AND  FINE    CANDIES.  ^��-?><ei'i_?>iSSs^6;"*j3^��<755^ ,.

Pellatt and G. B. Smith, all of  Toronto, and James Monaghan and G.  B. McAuley of Spokane. The new  company will be known as the Cariboo  Consolidated Mining & Milling Company, and it is said that the head office  will be at Rossland, although accurate  information on the latter point cannot  be obtained.  James Monaghan, president of the  old company, is at the mine superintending the installation Of ten new  stamps in the mill and the addition of  a new Corliss engine to the company's  plant. Secretary McAuley is absent  in the east, where he has spent several  weeks perfecting the deal for the or-',  g-anization of the new company.  The five additional claims acquired  by the new company are the Alice,  Emma, Maple L,eaf, Saw Tooth and  Okanagan. The company organized  is a strong one. Mr. Robert Jaffray is  president of the Globe Company. He  is heavilyr interested in the Crow's"  Nest coal lands and in other . mining  properties.  .  The   Money   Is   Paid.  Since the reference to the B. C. mine  in another column was written it is  learned that Mr. A. H. Harrison paid  the final payment on account of the  bond yesterday. The payment was  for $27,000 making $60,000 paid altogether for the property. Mr. Harrison  gave a cheque on the Bank of British  Columbia for this amount. This and  another $27,000 cheque given by Mr.  Harrison are the two largest cash payments made on account of Boundary  Creek properties. The payment was  made in the office of Mr. I. H, Hallett.  The deal throughout appears to have  been satisfactory to both parties, since  there was not the slightest friction  since the bond was first given.  The latest political news from Victoria is to the effect that Dr. McKechnie  of Nanamio ha.s been appointed to the  cabinet without a portfolio.

Against the recent action of the  .clearing house in establishing a 2 per  cent, discount on Canadian currency,  the Spokane merchants are making a  -vigorous protest. It is probable that  .at the next meeting of the clearing  house the action will be rescinded and  ���Canadian money will be received as  formerly.  The general opinion of the bankers  .and merchants is that the clearinghouse made a mistake in establishing  the 2 per cent, discount. It was explained at the clearing house meeting  at -which the action was taken that ex-  pressage, stamps, exchange and all  calculated in it cost about $1.60 to $2.00  per thousand dollars for Spokane  banks to handle Canadian money.  Therefore it was moved and adopted  "that a discount of 2 per cent, be made  on receipts of Canadian money, instead  of 1 per cent. The difference is material in transactions of the magnitude  of those which go through Spokane.  The 2 per cent, discount stands, and  is a great hindrance to trade. Merchants say it is keeping British Columbia money at home and preventing it  coming here for an outlet. The merchants are holding Canadian money  Ihemselves for their customers, shipping it to Rossland, and with it buying  New York exchange, thus suffering  slight loss. The banks, however, desire to prevent all loss to their customers, and will probably see that the  proper law is enacted at the next session of parliament.  As the bankers explain it, they are  not entirely to blame for the raise.  There is on the statute books of the  country an act passed February 8, 1875  which provides that all persons passing currency other than United States  national bank currency should pay a  fine of 10 per cent, on such currency  passed over a bank counter. This is a  practicallv prohibitive tax, although  never    enforced.���Spokesman-Review.  DRILLING   CONTEST.  Articles for a drilling contest have  been signed by A. D. Mcl/eod and Dennis McClune.

Roberts, a young Welsh  miner met his death in the Old Ironsides mine on Tuesday morning last.,  The deceased, M. Austin and W. J.  Pierce went down the 200-foot shaft  shortly after eleven shots had been  fired. Roberts and Austin were overcome by the foul air. Roberts died  shortly after being brought to the stir-  face while Austin regained consciousness and is rapidly recovering.  The unfortunate accident was due to  ^ ' '       .  '.  the men's  haste  to  see  the  effects of  their shots. The shift to which they  belonged drilled eleven holes in the  drift at the 200-foot level. They charged the same and came to the surface.  They waited only 15 minutes after the  shots were fired and then went down  the shaft. Pierce stopped at the pump  12 feet above the bottom of the shaft.  Roberts jumped from the bucket as  soon as it reached bottom and ran into  the drift. He must have become unconscious at once for Pierce heard Austin shout that Roberts was dead. Austin started into the drift and Pierce  slid down the cable and followed. He  found both men unconscious. He succeeded in getting both men out of  the drift into the shaft but the foul air  was rapidly affecting him and he went.  to the surface. Pat Dermody the foreman at the mine then went down. He  placed Austin in the. bucket but the air  was still bad and he was unable to lift  Roberts. Austin was brought to the .  surface and Dermody again went down  and secured Roberts. Dr. Foster was  sent for. Before he reached the mine  Roberts was dead. He never regained  consciousness and died a few minutes  after being rescued from the mine.  The air in the Old Ironsides shaft  has always been good and the fatality  was caused from the foul air from the  powder. Roberts who was a small  man was ambitious to do as much as  the opposite shift and he was in the  habit of going* down the mine too soon  after shots had been fired. His friends  often cautioned him to be more care- *  ful.  The accident was a   particularly sad;  one.    Roberts was a particular  friend  of Hugh O. Thomas who   was recently  killed  in    the     Snowshoe.    He     and  Thomas'   sister  were to be married at  Christmas.    For several days previous  to the accident he had been making  arrangements to take Thomas' body  home to New Rockland, Quebec, and  intended to leave for the east after  next pay day. Roberts was a native  of Carnarvon, Wales. He came to  New Rockland several years ago and  came to British Columbia with a number of. Welsh miners, a few months  ago. The deceased was a steady, hard  working miner and very popular with  his fellow employes.  Austin is rapidly recovering and will  be all right in a few days.  Dr. Jakes visited the mine on Tuesday afternoon and decided to hold an  inquest. This was done on Wednesday  morning.  The jury were as follows: J.Fitzgerald  (foreman) ;   G.   Rumberger,  J.  Moran,  J.   Foulds, Burns, George  Klinck. After hearing the evidence  the jury brought in a verdict that  death was caused by foul air and no  blame was attached to any one.

For  almost    three   solid   hours,   on  Monday evening*, aldermanic eloquence  percolated   through the  cracks  in the  court house and was lost upon the den.;  izens of the valley below.    The subject  which eng*ag*ed the serious intention of  the   municipal  fathers   was   the  best  "methods-of getting the streets down to  a proper level and constructing* a waterworks system that   would   do   away  with   the  pleasant practice of getting*  water from Twin  Creek   in   a   modest  bucket.    The  most   of   the   aldermen  favored doing* the work   by  day  labor  with several "ifs" as a drawback while  others wanted  the contractor.    Three  hours' discussion did not bring* unanimity to the council and   a   compromise  was      affected    whereby    day    labor  will be resorted to  if   the  contractors  are good enough to make  their .prices  hig*h enoug*h.  His Worship, Mayor Wood presided  and Aid. Galloway, Barrett and Phelan were present. Mr. C. '.J&. Shaw,  the city engineer was also in attendance.  W. J. Harber and A. W. McEeod  asked leave to lay a water pipe along*  Skylark street to their residences. Permission was g-ranted subject to removal by the council.  The city treasurer was granted $50  for petty cash and his half yearly report was received and filed.  Messrs. McDonald who have the contract for excavating for the new Barnard block   offered   to   fill the holes on  Government street in the valley   for 15  cents a yard.    The offer was accepted.  Mr. Shaw informed the council  that  he had the quanties prepared for Government   and   Copper  streets and that  the necessary data for letting-contracts  on the other streets would be ready   in  a few days.    A   long   discussion   then  ensued as to the best method of  doing  the work.    Aid.   Phelan wanted small  contracts and no bonds for the faithful  performance of the work.    He did  not  want   the   poor   man  in   the city to be  shut out from taking* a contract.    Aid.  Galloway and Barrett held that the city  could afford no experiments   and   that  if a contract were taken the contractor  should put up security that it would be  carried to  completion.    On   motion   of  Aid.   Barrett seconded by Aid.   Gallo-   I  way it was decided that advertisements  calling* for tenders for about $13,000  worth of street grading should be  placed in the BoundaryCreekTimes,  the Rossland Miner, the Spokesman-  Review and the Vancouver News-Advertiser. Aid. Phelan opposed this  motion.  Aid. Phelan then made a motion to  the effect that contractors must-pay  men not less than $3 a day and neither  Japanese or Chinese to be employed.  Aid. Phelan later reduced the wage  to $2.50 a day. Aid. Galloway believed  if a contract was to be let the contractors should be left free. He believed in  paying the best wag*es'but did not believe in dictating* to contractors.

Phelan's resolution and the motion carried. The  council then adjourned.  GRAND   FORKS   IGNORANCE.  In the last issue of the Grand   Forks  Miner appears   an   article   under   the  caption " Back to Barbarism."    It is a  characteristic   Miner     article.    It    is  based upon ig*nprance of Canadian law  and a disregard for facts.    The officers  at Greenwood would have been pleased  to   grant   permission   to   bury the remains of John Dolquist at  Greenwood  if the law allowed them to do so.    John  Dolquist's friends brought  the body to  Greenwood   and reported  his death to  the police officer   and   to   the   coroner.  They asked the advice of these officers.  The officers advised according* to  law.  The coroner's   jurisdiction   is   limited  b3r law and no body can  be interred oh  the Canadian side without a certificate  of death   from a  medical   man.    Dol-  quist's friends   were   so  informed and  the   body was taken to the   American  side.    We believe the precautions stipulated by the Canadian law are proper  precautions,    In the  Dolquist case the  stringency of  law  worked a  hardship  but the officers of the law  were  not to  blame.    They made no effort to administer the law ; their advice was  sougfht  and it was g*iven free of charg*e.  The incident shows the difference  between Greenwood and Grand Forks.  In Greenwood   the   residents have the  hig*hest regard for Canadian laws and  desire to see the same properly administered. In Grand Forks the people  show a full "and complete ig*norance of  the laws of the country and a disregard for their administration. The  Grand Forks Miner is about the worst  sinner in the lot.  B.
