V';(  A Weekly Paper published in the interests ot the Boundary Creek Mining District  Vol IV,  GREENWOOD, B,G, SATURDAY, APRIL  9,  1898,  S3  No, 5,  FROM   OTTAWA.  ���[SPECIAL    CORRESPONDENCE.]  Ottawa, March 24.���Boundary Creek is the best  advertised district in Canada to-day. Never was a battle  ....more.hotly waged than that whose scene is in the railway  committee of the House of Commons, where the Canadian  Pacific Railway company is using all its powerful ���influence  to defeat the granting- of a charter to the Kettle River  Valley Railway company. Both sides, in their efforts to  convince the committee, use the most glowing language in  describing the mineral riches of Boundai-3' Creek district.  Kvery newspaper in the country gives lengthy reports of  the meetings of the committee, and whether the charter is  granted or not, the district is being well advertised.  The atmosphere of the committee room ��was anything  but pure to-day. The ventilation was bad. Standing room  even could not be secured, on account of the large attendance  of members, newspaper men, lobbyists and others. After  Chairman Sutherland succeeded in getting order, he read a  series of telegrams for and against the charter. One of  these was unique, It came from the board of trade of Trail,  and its most striking feature was its length. One member  of the committee quietly ventured to hope that it was  "dead-headed'.' by the C. P. R. or it would ruin the  employees of the C. P. R. smelter to pay for its transmission.  Another telegram was read by W. W. B. Mclnnes, M. P.  It contained the resolution railroaded through the provincial  legislature by H. D. Helmcken, one of the paid solicitors of  the C. P. R., and by the Turner government.- Turner's  chances of success in the g-eneral election must be slight  indeed when he buys C. P. R. assistance at such a price.  But more about this later on. The government have not  heard the last about this resolution.  W. W. B. Mclnnes   is   the  most disliked  politician   in  Ottawa  to-day.    He  occupies a similar position to that of  Hon. D. W. Hig-gins in Victoria.    He,  has   fallen   out with  his own party and he cannot  become   popular   with   Conservatives.    He   is   a typical   Mclnnes,   inconsistent   and  illogical.    I^ast   year   his   voice   was   heard   against   the  government, and more against  the  grinding  monopoly of  the Canadian Pacific railway.    To-day he was enthusiastic  in his advocacy of the C. P. R. and against a competitor of  the C. P. R.    In previous letters I explained his  change of  front, and he is doing  his   best  for  his  friends,  who have  bonded the V., V. and ID. charter to the C. P. R.    Ivike all  advocates of a poor cause, Mr. Mclnnes devoted  the most  of his time to heaping insults upon the people of Boundary  Creek district.    He told the committee that we were Ameri- *  can and  that  our  towns  were   "twopenny fake American  boom   towns.       The   committee   should  not  listen   to   the  voice of these fake Americans;   they  ought  to  give  their  ears to the boards of trade of Vancouver and Victoria."  Mr. Bodwell again addressed the committee and made  a strong speech. He answered all the fake telegrams which  have been sent by the C. P. R. agents from the coast cities,  and all the fallacious arguments which have been used  against the charter.  Mr. Shaug-hnessy, the vice-president of the C. P. R.,  replied. He is a better speaker than Sir William Van  Home and an equally gifted prevaricator. Mr. Shaug-hnessy  used the same arguments as Sir William Van Home, but  his sentences were clearer and more connected. The C. P.  R. were anxious to secure and retain the trade of Boundary  Creek district for the people of Canada. Corbin's road  would divert it to American channels. He promised that  the C. P. R. will build from Robson to Midway by |  November next.    It was then  1 o'clock   and   the committee  adjourned without reaching  a vote.    Never was there such  a determined vote against a charter, never were such unfair  means used by a railway company; to accomplish its ends.  The  Ottawa correspondent of the Toronto   Globe, in a  strong letter to his paper, graphically describes the strong  lobby being made against the bill.    I cannot do better than  conclude by quoting his closing-paragraph : "The lobbyist  is a growing power and a growing- danger, and if after the  resources of public argument have been exhausted he is able  to pull the committee around by private appeals, the lobbyist  will soon entirely replace the public advocate at Ottawa, as  he has already replaced him at Washington.    Not the least  curious feature of the situation is that certain member's who  have been most vigorous in their denunciation of the policy  of handing over British Coltimbia  to railway monopoly, as  Manitoba  was  treated,   are  now  strong  advocates of the  shutting but  of   a  company   that, will   give   competition  against   the   C.   P.   R.     Last   session   Mr.   Mclnnes,   for  example, lifted up his.voice and wept at the results of C. -P,  R. monopoly.    Tormorrow he will   be   found   supporting it.  Time brings strange revenges.    The possibility of the C. P.  , R, acquiring  the   charter  of   the  Vancouver,.Victoria and'  Eastern, in which divers well-known people have interests,  is a potent reason for the change''of heart among members.  If the Kettle Valley bill is thrown out to-morrow it will be  a triumph, not of patriotism but of pull./  CITY   COUNCIL.  The council*met Monday evening, 4th of April, Mayor  Wood itf the chair.

Committee rose and reported progress. v  Council then adjourned.  The  People Are With the Senate.  It will pay the Eaurier government  not to presume too far on the theory  that it is representing the people when  it assumes responsibility for such an  atrocit/y as the Yukon railway bargain.  Sir Wilfrid Eaurier would never have  had a chance to set up that theory if  the people could have judged him by  the vices of the Crow's Nest and the  Yukon deal, instead of by the virtues  of his high professions.  The people of Canada do not give  Sir Wilfrid Eaurier power to fatten the  Coxes, the Jaffrays, the McKenzies  and the Manns at the expense of the  country.  'The people of Canada gave Sir Wilfrid Eaurier power which he promised  to use for the good of the country. In  two or three notable instances his  power has been used to the injury of  the country and to the unjust enrichment of private individuals. Sir Wilfrid .Eaurier is not representing the  people of Canada when he is betraying  their interests, and the senate is representing the people of Canada when it  is protecting their interests.���Toronto  Telegram.  Dredging on the  Fraser.  The success of the Beaty dredger,  operating- near Hope on the Fraser  river, has given a great impetus to this  most desirable form of mining. It also  affords another illustration of the undoubted fact that pluck and perseverance will win against almost an3r odds  in mining. Nothing has been so con-  ���stantly a source of repeated disappointment in the history of the business of  this province as dredging, but in turn  nothing' else has received such an  amount of dogged determined effort,  and the reward will, without question,  be in the same ratio. The field is very  large and all but unlimited.���Kamloops  Sentinel.

Russell & Co. are moving- into their  new store in the Barrett block this  week.   ;������'���'  The Bruce claim on Ingrim mountain  is being- surveyed by Sydney M. Johnson, C. E.  The city council at the meeting- Monday night instructed the constable to  see that residents cleaned their back  yards.  Thos. Corkill, one of the owners of  the Great Eaxey group on Eholt creek,  left Sunday to take charge of work on  some Rossland properties.  T. W. Gillette^ secretary of the Everett & Spokane Mining- Co., left by Sunday's stagefor his home in Fairhaven,  Wash. Mr. Gillette is interested in  the Rambler group of claims on Pass  creek. "���. ' r / ���'  ���  . P. Hoillihan/has taken the contract  -forsinking the shaft on the Golden  Crown, and put a force of men at work  Sunday last. Three shifts will be run .  on the work. The contract price is $28  ^per foot.  Officer Eawder states that he has had  no notification of removal to Grand  Forks, as published in the Miner. If a  change were contemplated he would  /probabry have had some instruction in  regard to the matter.  D. McClung and N. Gottfreidseri are  doing assessment work on the Great  Hesper, Smith's camp. The tunnel is  in 52 feet. The claim is Owned by J.  C. Haas and J. McNicol, and three  assessments have been done on the  -property.  Frank Greenwood, Jas. Stack, Ned  Bennett and Geo. Barrett left on Tuesday last for Canyon creek camp. They  will spend the season in developing  claims located by them last year, and  in prospecting the country ' ;nortjL.pf.  Canyon creek camp.  W. A. Corbett who has been in the  = city the past week, returned to Summit  camp on Monday. Mr. Corbett was  one of the pioneers in Summit, and  located some of the best properties  there. He is at present developing the  Summit claim it that camp.  Jno. Gradin, formerly of the Anaconda hotel, but for the past six months  a resident of Fairview, returned to  Anaconda on Sunday's stage. He says  that business of every kind is very dull  in Fairview at present, very few of  the mines doing any development  work.  W. B. Rickards of Midway expects  to commence work on the Pheasant, an  adjoining claim to the Snowshoe in  Greenwood camp, as soon as the snow  leaves. Two assessments have already  been done on the Pheasant, the results  being so favorable that it has been  decided to continue development work.  On the Broncho, a claim situated  about three miles from Midway on the  reservation, and owned by Geo. Cook  and C. War moth, some splendid ore has  been struck during the past week.  The ore is quartz, carrying copper and  gold. There are a number of very  promising properties in the vicinity of  the Broncho.  Preparations for commencing work  on the Sunset in Deadwood camp, are  being pushed forward as rapidly as  possible. A force of men are now at  work on the cabins, bunks are being  made, and the kitchen is being got  ready  for   occupation.    It is expected  development work will be commenced  in about a week or ten days. J. H.  McFarlane, the superintendent will  move up to the claim this week.  Thos. Pascoe has   taken   a   contract  from R. Wood andC. Iv. Thomet to run  a tunnel and uprise from the tunnel to  shaft on the North Star, in X<ong Eake  ; camp.  Dr. White came over from Fairview  on Monday last to hold a consultation  with Dr. Foster of the hospital, and  may conclude to remain in this part of  the district.  On Tuesday last George Young, a  miner, was brought from Camp Mc-  Kinney to the Greenwood hospital,  having a broken leg. Dr. Foster attended to the injured limb.  On the B.C, Summit camp, cross-(;  cutting is beingcdone at the 50-foot  and 160-foot levels. -At the upper level  the crosscut is in 50 feet, and at the  lower about 15 feet. Both'���; crosscuts  are in ore.  The roof of the Barrett block on Copper street is receiving a coat,of. paint.  The upper part of the building is being  plastered, and the hall will be ready  for public use in the course of a couple  of weeks.  S. Bennerman, of Midway;, left this  week for the West Fork and Main Kettle River to do assessment work on his  properties there. He will also do some  prospecting on the main river before  he returns. ':'.':'���"'���  J. McNicol has sold his business in  Anaconda to Smith and Aldridge. Mr.  Smith has been manager of the Anaconda business, and Mr. Aldridge is a  late arrival from the east. The purchase includes the stock, building and  lot.  The form of the Reservation Record,  published at Nelson, Wash., has been  changed, and is now similar in make  up to The Times, being 8 pages, and  cover. The change.makes an improvement in appearance, and better display  for advertisers.  A large number of prospectors are  rushing to Torodo creek, on the reservation, a few miles south of Midway.  A number of claims have been located  on quartz similar , in character to that  on the Republic lead in Eureka camp.  Tor ado may turn out to be as rich a  canip as Eureka.  On the Non Such, in Smith's camp,  development work is being pushed on  both tunnels. Crosscutting is being  done on the lower tunnel, at 30 feet, to  strike the lead. On the upper tunnel  work will be continued until 300 feet is  run, when the two tunnels will be. connected by a shaft.  Alex Waddell came in from Canyon  creek on Sunday. Mr. Waddell is a  partner of Ed Sullivan in the Colorado  on which a 60-foot tunnel has been run  during the past winter. This claim is  considered as among the best in the  Canyon creek country. Assays run  as high as $54 in gold to the ton.  The force on the Norfolk in Central  camp has been increased. In all about  $1,500 has been expended in development work on this claim, consisting of  ���five shafts, running in depth from 20  to 50 feet, and considerable open work.  The work now being carried on is  under the superintendence of James  Atwood, one of the pioneer prospectors  of this district, and the original locator  of man3r of the best claims in Boundary district.  Miss Roth left for Spokane on Tuesday on a visit to her mother and sister.  H. A. Jackson of Spokane, traveling  freight agent for the Great Northern  railway, is in the city.  As a result of the railway news; a  number of lots have changed hands  during the past week.  Assessment work has been completed on the Blue Jay in Skylark camp.  The shaft is down 45 feet.  The incline on the Snowshoe, Greenwood camp, is down 117 feet. The ore  body gives good assays.. The ledge  retains its width.  In the account of the death of Thos.  Patterson in last issue of The Times,  a mistake was made in giving the  birthplace of deceased, which was  Huron and not Renfrew county.  Miller Bros, have called  for  tenders,  for excavating a  lot  on the  corner of  Copper  and  Greenwood   streets, 50 by  60 feet.    It is their intention to build a ,  store 18 by  50 feet  on   the  lot, facing  Copper street.        ,  /Special Easter services will be held  in Rendeli & Co's. hall on Sunday next.  Hymns suitable to the occasion will be  sung by othe choir, and a special sermon will be preached by Rev. Mr:  Guy. A special Easter offertory will  be taken up to meet a deficit in the incidental expenses of carrying on church  work in the district.  Harry Morgan and P. Hickey are  doing assessment work on the Eittle  Ruth, South Deadwood, owned by J. F.  Miller, W. M. Law, H. Morgan and P.  Hickey. The Eittle Ruth is a quartz  proposition, well mineralized and carrying large values in copper and gold.  ��The claim is situated a short distance  from the Eadoga, on which a 90 foot  tunnel has been run. On the Eadoga  is an immense body of ore averaging  over $15 in gold.  A letter has been received in the city  from Donald Graham, M. P. P., stat- ,  ing that he was unable to get an appropriation for the Greenwood hospital,  but he will do his utmost to have a sum  placed in the supplementary estimates  for that purpose. Mr. Graham favors  a redistribution for East Yale, along  the lines suggested in the resolution by  the Mining and Commercial Association, and will support such a division  of the district. He is strongly opposed  to having a part of East Yale included  in Trail district for electoral purposes.  iir���TiTuirin"lf";'TiUiViT,mi!r "��� ������������"'-���rrii'inngTmrrrrtmir*?*7B'f^*;''!'irrfiv*"'!^ "��� "*n"***i**Tram'^ ��� ���  Awarded  Highest Honors���World's Fair, ���"'.

Rumberger   is  doing assessment work on claims owned by himself  '< and Joe Taylor in Wellington,camp.  Clearing is being done on part of the  Anaconda townsife,   in  anticipation of  ��� the boom that will come with,, the commencement of railway construction.  Forbes M. Kerby and C. M. Crouse  camedown from Wellington camp on  Thursday, where they have been surveying claims'for Jones and Rogers,  and proceeded, to Midway the same  day.      :":A:.":'        ,     ;/ '.!  Development work will shortly be  started on the Duplicate and Triplicate  claims in Summit camp. The claims  lie between the Josie and Ontario and  are owned by J. McNicol, W. B. Rickards and W. Shaw.  Dr. Dart, Bishop of the Diocese of  New Westminster, is expected to arrive  in Greenwood Thursday next, and will  hold services here. The Bishop''- is  making a tour of the diocese previous  to taking a trip to England.  The men working on the B. C. in  Summit camp came to town on Thursday,, the mine having shut down for a  couple of days, on account of one of the  springs in the air chamber of the com- ,  pressor breaking, necessitating,a dela3j-  until a new one arrives.  Assessment work was finished on the  Granite in Skylark camp this week.  This is the second assessment done on  the claim. Ten feet of shaft work has  been sunk,disclosing a 20-inch ledge of  ��� quartz carrying copper and iron. The  claim is owned by R. Breslauer.  Fred Oliver and John Mack of Spokane paid a visit to Wellington camp  this week. Mr. Oliver has a bond on  the Athelstan in that camp and Mr.  Mack is one of the owners of the claim. ��  They were both well satisfied with the  -work being done and the quality of ore  taken out of the mine.  A large number of the young people  ���of the city attended the Hard Times  bail given by Prof. Boice on the evening of the 1st inst. A very enjoyable  time was spent in dancing to the excellent music furnished by Porter's  orchestra. Mrs. J. W. Nelson and Miss  Alice Palmer captured the ladies' prizes  and Messrs. L. B. Pearce and J. C.  Goupil the gentlemen's.  Complaints have been made at this  office that the road leading from Greenwood to Deadwood and Copper camps,  is being littered with cans, bottles and  garbage bv the city scavenger. This  should be stopped, as there will soon  be a large amount of ..'travel on this  road, development work having been  commenced on a number of claims in  both camps, and in the warm weather  the stench from the garbage will be  anything but pleasant to travelers.  Jas. Moran has a force of men at  work on his claim in Greenwood camp,  adjoining the Premier.  F.

Some time ago Dr. Ayerill, of Grand  Forks, says the Spokesman-Review,  purchased the Minnie claim from a  prospector but failed to put the bill of  sale on record, and now the prospector  has sold the Minnie to another party  and left the country, and the doctor is  out the price paid for the claim.  Jas. McMynn, one of the owners of  the McMynn ranch near Qamp McKin-  ney, was in the city Friday and'states  that plowing will be commenced next  week. He also states that considerable  development work is beingdone on the  .claims on Myers' creek this season.  There is talk of a stamp mill being put  in on the creek this season.  J. J. McBride, one of the old timers  on the Kettle river, died at the Ingram  ranch on Tuesday last, aged 73 years.  Mr. McBride was for a number of years  a partner of the late John Ingram, and  was well known throughout the district. The funeral took place on  Thursday and was attended by,a large  number of acquaintances of the  deceased.  Another rich strike has been made  on the Norfolk in Central camp. For  some time past the development has  been on an open cut, which has been  run for about 60 feet with an average  depth of 5 feet. A strong ledge was  struck in the cut, near the southern  boundary of the claim, on Tuesday last,  which, is supposed to be the No. 7 lead.  Jas. Fisher has located a southern  extension of the claim, calling it the  Norfolk No. 2, and believes he has a  continuation of the lead on the property'  just located. If this proves to be the  case, there will be five claims on which  the No. 7 lead, or one having the same  characteristics/has been uncovered.  Boundary Valley   Lodge,  No. 38, 1.0.0.

It is learned from a source beyond  question that if the Canadian parliament grants a charter to D. C. Corbin  for his proposed Boundary Creek road,  as now seems almost assured, smelters  will be immediately erected in the  Boundary. Creek district and the ores  of that section will be smelted there.  Also that ores from the Colville reservation will be given such rates that in  air probability they will be smelted in  Boundary district-Spokesman-Review.  Speaking to the World  Talking about treatment accorded to  reporters, this ; anecdote of Disraeli  may prove instructive and provide a  hint to local Bumbles who believe a  reporter may be treated like a poor relation. Disraeli was to deliver an  after dinner address in a small English  provincial town and two Eondon reporters were sent down to "take him."  Arriving at the place of meeting, the  reporters were informed that they  could not be allowed to attend the  dinner, but might "come in with the  fruit." They thereupon waited upon  Mr. Disraeli and represented that this  was an indignity to which they were  not accustomed. The great statesman  called the local magnates together and,  pointing to some seats in a prominent  position, said : " Who are these for ?"  " Oh," was the reply, "these are for  our local magnates." "Gentlemen,"  said Mr. Disraeli, " I did not come  here to address your local magnates;  I am here to night addressing thewor Id  through these gentlemen, and you will  treat them courteously or I shall leave  by the next train." Collapse of the  local magnates.  , ,RATS. ,. .���  Hon. Mr. Higgins made a grand  speech in the house yesterday, but he  received scant courtesy at the hands of  the government during its delivery.  Hon. Mr. Martin in particular distinguished himself by one of those master  strokes of good breeding and elegant  phraseology for which he now enjoys  an   enviable   and unrivaled celebrity.  When Mr. Higgins made a certain very  emphatic and very important statement the Hon. Mr. Martin brawled  out like a coal heaver or a bosun's  mate to the lower deck: "Rats!"  This, Hon. Mr. Higgins pointed out,  was scarcely the kind of language one  has a right to expect from a minister of  the British crown.. The exuberant  chief commissioner of lands and works  recognizing- that he had placed his  colossal pedal extremities " in it "then  gave another fine exhibition of his magnificent grasp of Queen's English by  retracting the rodents expression thus:  " I take it back ; I take it back." Elegant beyond comment. What a gem  North Yale has a chance to retain in  the polished and many-sided Hon. Mr.  Martin.���Victoria Times.  Fresh Additions?  MEN'S STRAW HATS,  in all styles.

I  The action, taken by the g-'overnmerit  and their supporters in the provincial  legislature in opposition to the Corbin  road is perhaps the worst example on  record of the representatives of the  people opposing- the' unanimous wishes  of those most interested in the charter  being- granted.  The city treasurer's quarterly statement of receipts and expenditures of  the city for the -first three months of  the year is out, and appears in the  advertising- columns of this issue. The  receipts for the year so far have been  $944.50 and the expenditures $1,498.50.  Of this amount $747.50 is properly on  expenditure of 1897. This would leave  receipts $945.50 and expenditures  $742.76, or a balance of receipts over  expenditures for the three months of  $201.75.     ���'���     ���..'   , '   ���'  The vote of railway committee of the  House of Commons, on the Kettle River  Valley charter was very close, 54 to 48.  This shows how hard a fig-ht was made  by the C.P.R., as under ordinary circumstances a charter would be g-ranted  to a railway corporation where no subsidy or land grant was asked. The  fig-ht for this charter and the terms on  which it was asked, it is to be hoped  will do away with the subsidy and land,  g-rant business in this province. Corbin is the first to ask the privilege of  building; a railwa)r as a business proposition in this county, and in future  our representatives in either the local  or Dominion house can give,no reasonable excuse for subsidising railway  corporations.  That the member of the provincial  legislature from Northwest Kootenaj-,  Mr. Kellie, is at . times inspired with  an-idea and speaks it out loud, cannot  be denied ; but that he more often  speaks before the idea arrives, is  beyond contradiction. His latest experiment in the realm of thought is on  educational matters, and he contends  that " those who have children should  educate them." From, just such a  system as Mr. Kellie advocates one  would expect such ability as is displayed by the members of the provincial government in the administration of the affairs of the province.  Dr. Holmes, on being asked the proper  time to commence the education of a  child, answered : " Fifty years before  it is borru" If this be a correct view,  the people of the province may entertain the hope that in a century or two  the members of the legislature will  have a knowledge of the geography  of the interior of British Columbia,  and the coast business men know  something about the resources of the  Boundary Creek district.  In   the   senate    last   week   Senator  Templeman,    of   Victoria,   made   his  maiden   speech.    The  debate  was  on  the Mann & McKenzie contract, Senator Templeman supporting  the  measure.    He was  congratulated  by senators  on   both   sides   of   politics.    The  Midway  Advance  might  make a note  of the fact that Senator Templeman is  one of those horrible   "itinerant printers, "   he having in his  3rounger days  traveled on what is known as  " Southern Circuit."    The Advance 'might also  note     that     Sir    McKenzie .    Bowell  and    B&njamiti    Franklin   were    also  " itinerant    printers."    Perhaps ".". the  editor   ma,y not  have   heard   of these  gentlemen before.    The first named is  a senator  in Canada and a former premier of the   Dominion,   and   Benjamin  Franklin's name appears in any encyclopedia  printed in   the  English  language.    Neither   of   these  gentlemen  may   have  risen   to   the   dignity  of a  county justice of the peace, a tdwrisite  agency, or the vendor of quack  medicines 011 railroad construction, but still  they take a place in the history   of the  Anglo Saxon race.  The debate on the budget in the  legislature has resulted in ex-Speaker  Higgins "declaring his intentions."  Whether they are honorable or not can  only be ascertained by his future  course. It is possible that the Hon* D.  W. Higgins has reached that age;  when it is advisable to "hedg-e," and  prepare for the future. In giving his  reasons for opposing the government,  he-said: "In the course which the  government was following he could  see nothing but ruin ahead. Avery  few more 3'ears of the same policy  which had been pursued would bring  the province to the end of its financial  tether. For the current and next year  there already was a deficiency of  $840,000 in sight. He said that if. he  was the only man on the island who  would stand up against the present  government he would stand up and say  that the interests of the province demanded that the present oligarchy and  reign of syndicates be put down. He  predicted, however, that in the next  contest the Island and Mainland would  be united as never before and sectionalism will be altogether forgotten,  and the mountains will speak to the  sea with definite force."

On the Marguerite, in Deadwood  camp, work has been discontinued for  the season. The work done consists of  drifts and crosscuts, 44 feet of drifting  and 16 of a crosscut. At a depth of 30  feet a drift was run-26 feet on the vein  and from this a crosscut of 16 feet from  wall to wall. Next fall it is the intention of the owners to -sink an incline  from the crosscut 50 feet on the ore  chute, and then crosscut on the bottom  of the incline. The walls are carbonate of lime and diorite. The ledg-e  consists of magnetite,diorite and heavy  spar. Next to the lime wall there is  768 feet of magnetite, impregnated  with copper and iron sulphides, carrying copper-gold values. The diorite  gangue is more heavily impregnated  with copper sulphides than that near  the lime wall and carries higher gold  values.

As  an   instance" of   the   unfairness  with which  salaries   are   fixed   by the  men who run the  Turner government,  the'following-  cases   are   cited:    The  principal    of    the     Rossland    public  .schools,     who     has    eig-ht     assistant  teachers   under   him,   is  paid   $80  per  month, while a clerk in  the education  -office   in   Victoria   is  paid   $85.    The  principal    of    the    Kamloops    public  School, who has three assistants under  him,   is   paid  $85   a   month, while the  principal of the Nelson  public  school,  who   has  five assistants under him, is  paid  $75.    The  gold  commissioner at  Duncan    I^ake,    in    West    Kootenay,  where there is practically no business,  is paid $125 a month, while the mining  recorder for   Goat  River  Mining division, where there is  some   business, is  paid 12)4 per cent, on the revenue collected.     Over   $9,000  is   appropriated  for   salaries   for   stipendiary    mag-is-,  trates,   who   are   in    every    instance  drawing salaries  for other  positions.  "Why should a  stipendiary  magistrate  at Nelson be paid  $66  a  month  when  he is drawing  $144  a  month   as  gold  commissioner and government agent?  ���Nelson Tribune.  The  West  Kootenay  Protective association has, by   the   action of   a few.  members, allowed itself to  be  classed  as an organization   without  spirit and  servile to the biggest monopoly Canada  has ever witnessed.    As   an  organization, it professes to have   as   members  the leading mining men of the district,  who are supposed to  have   at heart all  matters   affecting   and  pertaining   to  the   industry.      Saturday  evening    a  half dozen members of the association  held a meeting in this   city and passed  a resolution urging the Dominion government to refuse  the  Corbin   charter  in favor   of  the   C. P. R., and   stating  that   a petition had been signed by the  leading business men of Nelson against  the American road.    This  latter is not  so, as   the   petition   was   signed  by a  scant few.    The  business men of Nelson, as evidenced by the recent action  of' the   board  of  trade  and  the   city  council, are strongly   in   favor of railway   competition.      They   believe   in  railroad  rivalry, for   it  has benefitted  Kootenay, and  it  will   assuredly help  Boundary.    It was hardly deemed possible that an   intelligent  body of men  would   have   lent   themselves   to   the  furtherance  of  the  desig-ns of   a company   that   is   palpably   cloaking the  truth.    The association   has allowed a  few of its members to   make   it a mere  tool of the C. P. R.���Tribune.  No   province   in   Canada   has   had a  more   reckless   combination   of finaii-  ciers   than   those   now   operating the  'government   machinery  at Victoria-  Merc ier, of   Quebec   boodle fame, not  excepted.    E)ach 3Tear, since power was  vested   in   them,   they   have   run the  province   in   debt, which   has   grown  "larger  with the expansion of revenue.  This year the expenditure   bids fair to  run close to a million dollars above the  revenue.      A   deficit    of   $540,000,    in  round     numbers,   has   been   acknowledged,   and   the   supplementary   esti  mates   have   not    yet    been   brought  down.    In every  department  there is  an increase of expense to be notedr and  in the matter  of   salaries,   miscellaner  otis items, and public improvements in,  the   island   and  coast constituencies,  money is granted in   the most reckless  manner.    The  total   receipts   for  the  year  are  placed  at $1,400,000, and by  careful   legislation   and  judicious expenditure, this could   be made to cover  the needs of  the public, at  least  in a  manner   to   win   confidence.      If   the  people  saw  an   effort  being  made to  stem the tide of bankruptcy so rapidly  approaching,   they   would   feel   more  content, but when large sums of money  are squandered on unnecessary  works  in out of the  way  corners  of  government pocket boroughs, arid when company promoters and chartermongering  friends   are    granted    exorbitant   demands,   then   unrest   and   dissatisfaction obtain.���Tribune.  The true value and importance of a  mining district is best proved by the  amount of assessment work done on  the claims, rather than by the mere  number of claims made. In this respect Boundary Creek stands easily at  the head of the several mining divisions of Yale district. The report of  the Minister of Mines for last year  shows that in the Kettle River and  Grand Forks districts ��� into ��� which  Boundary Creek was divided last fall-���  the number of assessments recorded  was in.the ratio of over 75 per cent, of  the number of claims recorded. Oso-  yobs division,which includes Fairview,  had assessment work recorded only to  the amount of 33 per cent, of the claims  recorded; Vernon, 27 per cent. ; and  Kamloops, with 1,152 recorded claims',  shows a per centage of assessments re-,  corded of 15 per cent. only.

P. R., and self-  interest.    The   action   of   the railway  committee is  the  sharpest of  rebukes  to the degraded government of British  Columbia,   which, at the instigation of  a financially interested body, .sent one  of the meanest, most cowardly and disgraceful resolutions that ever emanated  from    a   responsible   government,   to  Ottawa  against   the  granting of this  charter.    The Turner government has  earned enough   infamy to   sink half  a  dozen governments in any country but  easy-goings  British     Columbia.     We  most heartily congratulate  the people  of Boundary   district   and of Southern  British    Columbia   on   the    excellent  prospects of getting the country opened  up immediately on conditions so favorable.���Victoria Times.  The Toronto Board of Trade is a gun  which can always become unlimbered  by tlie friends of the C. P. R. whenever there is need of firing a shot in  defence of that great corporation. The-  Board of Trade is true to its subservient record when it opposes a bill conferring upon the, Kettle River Railway  Company the right to build a line into  the Boundary Creek country at its own  expense. It would be just as well for  the Council of the Board of Trade to  allow     its   leaders   in the   policy    of  P. R. at  every   point  When  the Board of Trade considered the  Crow's Nest Pass deal, C. P. R. directors and'their alliens of the British Columbia Southern were unduly prominent in the deliberations. And when  the Council of the Board of Trade considered this proposed railway in the  Boundary Creek country, a C. P. R;  director moved the resolution which  spoke the views of commercial Toronto.  Any proposal which is not good for the  C. P. R. is bad for the country, in the  estimation of the Toronto Board of  Trade. But when the Council allows  its resolutions to be moved by a C. P.  R. director, it discloses its subservience to the interests advocated by Sir  William Van Home.���Toronto Telegram.  The decision, b3r a vote of 54 to 48 of  the railway committee of the Dominion  parliament, to grant the application of  D. C. Corbin for a charter for the construction of a railway from the southern boundary of the province into the  Boundary Creek district, is in line with  the view taken of the subject b}'the  Opposition in the provincial legislature. The railwaj1" committee even  takes a more pronounced view, indeed,  of the situation. The main ground of  the provincial opposition's argument  was that the people of the Boundary  Creek district must have railway communication without further delay.  The opposition said if the desired communication could be secured immediately by the construction of a Canadian line, and  the company   operating  % 4* 4* 4* 4* 4* $* 4r 4* 4* 4* 4*4* 4* *$r 4r 4�� 4* 4* *$r 4* 4,;4* 4*. 4' %%  ;V4  re^  ����*  ��!��  Is prepared to supply the trade with first-class Bottled Beer  manufactured by the " Ivion Brewery Company, L,td.,"  of Rossland.

But the provincial government refused  to give any assurance, either that a  Canadian line would be built or that  there would be a satisfactory regulation of its freight rates,and the opposition then voted against the resolution.  ���News-Advertiser.

On Monda)^  evening he was riding a horse with no  saddle or bridle, and the animal while  attempting to run away, stumbled and  threw him forward upon its withers in  such a manner as to cause internal  injuries, the exact seriousness of which  cannot be told.

I  (i  REPUBLIC   PLEASANTRIES.  John Pochette, aii Indian, was stabbed in several places Tuesday nig-ht by  Peter T^aiiess, also an Indian. The  -wounds were of such a serious character that at one time it was fhoug-ht that  fhey would produce death.  During- the day Pochette and Eaness  liad  been   drinking- and having-   what  they considered a good time.    I^ate in  the evening they were much the worse  for   liquor.    Just   how    the   stabbing  occurred and  what* led   up to it, is not  known   as   only   the   principals were  present,   and   the   wounded    man    is  unable  to give a  lucid  account of the  affair,   and  his   assailant   is at large.  The two men  were  wandering- about  between the two sections of  the town,  when -suddenly''the' alarm was  given  that Pochette was desperately stabbed.  Deputy   Sheriff  Griswold   and   others  went to   the    man's    assistance   and  helped him to the door of Dr.   Manry's  drug- store.    This was about 11 o'clock.  I/eaving  the  wounded  man  with  his  companions  Griswold  started back to  search    for   Kaness.    Meanwhile   the  jmen left with   Pochette  deserted  him  without procuring- medical attendance.  After lying on the sidewalk for a time  Pochette  stag-gered   away   and finally  reached Ryan's stables, where he  was  made as comfortable   as  possible, and  Dr.   Webb   called.    An    examination  showed  deep  knife   wounds   on   both  arms,   a ghastly wound in the left side  and a long cut on the leg.    There   was  a cut  on   the   man's  lower   lip.    The  injured man was very weak  from loss  of blood, and his life was despaired of.  But youth,   vig-or,   and   medical   skill  will pull him through.  E}aness evaded capture and left town  on horseback.���Republic Pioneer.  Death of   N.  R.  Munro.  On Sunday morning, 3rd inst., Nicholas R. Munro died at Midway, after a  short illness. Mr. Munro was a native  of Dundas county, Ont.,' and was 37  years of age. He had been a resident  of British Columbia for a number of  years, and came from Chilliwack to  this district about two years ag-o and  for the past year has been eng-aged in  the butchering business at Midway.  He leaves a widow, (the sister of Aid.  Kerr of Greenwood and Robert Kerr of  Boundary Falls) and six children to  mourn his untimely death. On Monday last the remains were interred at  Midway, Rev. T. C. Guy conducting  the service. Messrs. F. Davis, W.  Davis, T. McAuley, C. J. I^undy, W.  G. McMynn and C. L,. Thomet acted as  pallbearers.  Postage   Legislation.  Postmaster-General Mulock has introduced a bill in the Dominion house,  providing for a reduction in postage  on one-ounce letters from three 1o two  cents. The bill also makes a provision  for newspapers to pay a postage of  half a cent  per  pound.    Half  of  this  rate will take effect on January 1st,  1899, and the other half on July 1st,  1899, thus g-iving- newspaper offices  time for arranging for postag-e.

The following are the resolutions  passed by the Grand Forks Board of  Trade and sent to the government on  the redistribution question :  "Whereas, An act will be introduced  at the present session of the local legislature for the redistribution of the  province into electoral districts ; and ,  "Whereas, The present constituency  of Bast Yale is rapidly increasing- in  population and there are now between  fifteen and sixteen hundred registered  voters with every prospect of the number being- largely increased in. the near  future; and  " Whereas, It is reported that a dele-  g-ation from Rossland waited on the  government and preferred a request  that all that part of Kettle River and  Boundary Creek, including- Christina  lake, Cascade City, Grand Forks, Upper Grand Forks, Carson, Anaconda  and Greenwood City should be included in the proposed electoral district of  Trail; and  " Whereas, The interests of Kettle  River and Boundary Creek are not  identical with that of Rossland and  Trail Creek, owing to the want of any  direct communication, we therefore  strong^ protest against any part of  the present electoral district of East  Yale being included in the proposed  Trail division, and consider that to do  so would be perpetrating an injustice.  Be it therefore  " Resolved, That, in the opinion of  this meeting-, the present electoral district of East Yale should be divided  into two electoral districts   as follows:  " The South Easterly, or Kettle  River division to commence at the intersection of the Similkameen river  with the international boundai^ line,  thence northerly so as to include Dog-  lake, thence easterly to the western  boundar}1- of Kootenay district."  Not   Likely.  " Personal friends of President Van  Horne, residing- in Grand Forks, cire  authorit3r for the statement that neither  Grand Forks or Greenwood will be favored with a C.P.R. depot, but that the  company will run 'right throug-h the  business part of the towns without  stopping. Any town ought to feel  proud to have the C. P. R. ptss throug-h  it, even if it don't stop.- -Grand Forks  Miner.  Wholseale and. Retail Dealers in    .
