The Dividend mine on Kruger mountain, on the west side of Osoyoos lake,  under bond to, and being developed by  H. T. Ceperley, of Vancouver,. and  Georg-e R. Naden, of this city, is turning- out to be a wonderful property.  Recently Ronald Harris, the mining  engineer,! examined the mine and  sampled the workings. His sampling  of the property was made both from  the ore in place in the mine, and the  ore on the dumps. The values, all in  gold, are certainly remarkable.: An  average sample of the ore on the dump  gave $42.54, in gold. From the bottom  of the winze, at a depth of 52 feet from  the surface, $32.40 was obtained from  the ore on the west side of the footwall.  On the east side of the footwall, at the  -same depth, the ore assayed $33ll4. A  sample taken across six feet of gangued  I ore in the crosscut gave $10.67. Other  samples gave values of $43.75 and  $10.87 per ton, gold. ���  , 'STARTED FOUR MONTHS AGO.  The gentlemen who are now developing the property,, secured a bond from  Ben Anderson, H.(A. Bowerman and J.  C.; Fisher, the owners, about four  months ago, arid every since have  kept a crew-of men continually at work  opening up the property. The Dividend is located ��� 15 miles south ofFair-  yiew,.\on. the east slope of Kruger  mountain,-, .about one mile west of  Osoyoos lake. There are two well de-  ^Tfftied. -parallel.' ledges on" "the claim':  'What is known as tlie northerly ledge is  a ' contact of pyrrhotite with some  arsenical iron, ..lying between diorite  on the foot-wall side and lime i-n the  hanging. One hundred feet to the  south, and parallel to this ledge, is a  second body of iron sulphide, and the  ore is ideh'ii'i.i'ri'y' the same. The veins  are both large. Oh the north ledge  there is 10 feet of solid ore and 10 feet  of slightly mixed ore in a gangue.  The main development is practically  confined to the north ledge, though  considerable surface exploration work  has been done on both ore bodies.  be most conservative in their reports,  and by these remarks certainly must  have held a high opinion of the property at that time. Since then further  work has fully borne out the views  expressed in the first report, and says  Mr. Harris in a supplementary report:  " The ore body showst every sign of  permanency . and of retaining its  values."  GOOD  MINK  BUILDINGS.  Since work was started substantia^  bunk'and boarding- houses have been  erected.Eleven men are employed on the  work. Mr. Naden informed the Timks ,  representative that the bond would certainly be taken up and the development of the property continued to  make it a dividend-payer.  sH REOEtVING NEW  ��5 GOODS   DAILY . .

Charles   Petersen  Reported   to Be Fearfully  Injured.  Rock Creek, B.C., Dec. 22���[Special,  by telephone, to The Times].���Late  last night a courier from the Forks  arrived here in search of medical assistance. He brought the information  that during the afternoon, while working- in a, winze on the tunnel level  on the Iconoclast, Charles Petersen,  one of the owners, was fearfully injured by the falling- of some loose rock.  The messenger came too late last night  to be able to communicate with Greenwood by telephone. The first thing  this morning Dr. Jakes was called up  and said he would leave at once.  The Iconoclast is located on Boomerang- creek, 18 miles up trie West Fork  of the Kettle river from this point.  The property is owned by Charles  Petersen, Peter Lover and Fred Hilbert,  Yesterday morning;1 when the above  message was received, Drs. Jakes and  Oppenheimer were at once called up by  the. Times for farther particulars.  32|?X:';cpuld add nothing to the above  except to say that Dr. Jakes, accompanied by Proutncial Officer W.G.

A crosscut was  then run north to reach the lime contact. Ore was first met with after  driving about 16 feet, and continuing  this crosscut the ore body was found  to be 20 feet in width, some of it clean  ore and some of it gangued. This  crosscut, after passing through the  ore, was driven on through the lime to  the surface,a total distace of 71 feet from  the shaft. At a poiut where the ore  showed to be the cleanest a winze was  started and is now down over 25 feet.  It was from the ore in this crosscut  and in the winze, at that time at a  depth of 16 feet, that the exceptionally  rich returns were obtained as noted  above. This winze will be continued  down at least ,50 feet from the crosscut  level, when another level will be opened  up and drifting will be started on the  ore. If, on the completion of this  work, the showing still remains satisfactory, the owners can go lower down  the hill and drive a crosscut tunnel to  the ore, with a depth on it of over 200  feet.  engineers' report.

Seventeen thousand dollars was paid  to John Mulhollan and Robert Allison,  being the final amount due them on  the bond secured by McEntire, McDonnell & Co of this city on the Review  mine, on Myers creek, last spring.  John Mulhollan, due of the orig-ina  owners, arrived in town Thursday  evening to receive his share of the  money. The property is now owned  by the Review Gold Mining Company, and the control of the mine is  held by th>; firm who bonded the claim,  F J Finucane, G H Collins and Duncan  Mcintosh, of Greenwood aud J Mc-  Nicol, of Midway.

Smith who Helped Survey the Road is Still  Living���How They Ran the Train. C. P. R.  Looses ��� Other Railroad News and  Personals.���The Greenwood Spur.  The first railroad to be built on  the  North   American   continent   was,   according to  Dr.   W.  W.  Smith, of Wil-  liston, S. C, completed  in  1833.    The  learned   gentleman,    who   ,is   both   a  '' minister of the gospel and a physician,  gave to a correspondent the following  particulars  regarding the construction  of the South Carolina railway, running  from   Charleston   to  Augusta,   Ga., a  total distance of 140 miles.    Dr. Smith  is now 86 years of age, yet still retains  a wonderful memory.    To those in the  Bouudarj' Creek district who have witnessed the building  and recent completion   of  the  Columbia &   Western  branch  of  Canada's  big railroad, will  be interested to learn something of the  trials   and   difficulties    undergone   66  years   ago   in   the   building   of the old  South Carolina railway :  EAKI.Y   CONSTRUCTION.  The doctor was one ,of the corps of  surveyors of the road, beginning at  Charleston in 1826. He says they were  seven years building the road and that  he helped in the work throughout that  time. The road was completed in 1833.  The first motive power used oh this  road was wind, utilized in sails of cloth  on the cars.  Dr. Smith is the inventor of the  lever switch. Before his invention  the3r moved the rails by means of  wedges.  In building the road a heavy grade  w;:s encountered at Aiken, S. C. There  a stationery engine pulled the cars up  the grade by ropes and windlass.  There was a double track at that place,  and a car loaded with rocks furnished  the weights to help pull up the cars.  The   locomotives   had   'two   smokestacks,   one  at each end.    In going to '  Charleston one of the  stacks was used,  and in coming  back   the   other.     One  hundred miles a day was   g-ood  traveling in those clays.    When   night  came  on   all   hands  struck camp an i waited  for daylight to come   in   order  to   proceed.    The track was composed of ties  and thirty-two foot stringers, on which  a   band   of  iron   about like a common  tire was laid and nailed to the wood.  tiik tkack-wai.keh's duties.  A track  walker went   ahead   of  the  engine every day   to   knock  down   the  was the "snake-heads" or nails protruding above the iron rail, for they  were a prolific source of accidents. The  conductor collected the fares from the  outside'; walking on boards aboufJ as  the open street cars are ��� now arranged.  Edward Roath and Nathan Colcjer-  banks were engineers on this primit  road.    They died a few years ago  The mail facilities were  meager a[  very primitive; A split stick served  a   mail   bag,   as   letters   were puti  sticks and handed up to the conductor,  and were thrown out the same way.  hd  (for  in  of  made  Dr. Smith introduced the pi  having the outer rail on a' curve  higher than the insiu-   _.  The coupling links were made ! of  wood, so that when a car ran off it  would break and save the others from  also running off.  Tristan Tupper was one of the presidents of this road and introduced some  novelties during his administration.  He had the cars remoddled and  shaped like a barrel. This was done so  that in case they ran off they would  roll down the hill and not hurt so many  passengers. It was thought they  wonld roll back with the same degree  of ease.  There was afterwards an effort made  to shape the cars in order to "split the  wind," thus increasing the speed  Spokane his home for the future.  Says the special correspondent of the  Victoria Times, writing of the  recent  C. ���P.   R.  excursion  to  the 'Boundary  district: " The C, P. R. have a faculty  of   finding   genial   and    painstaking  officials.   Those who  accompanied the  party were  untiring.    Allan Cameron  never   stopped  from the time he left  Vancouver until his return, having in  eye, an  ear  and  a thought  for every  one.    All will join in  with  Mr. Earle,  who expressed the  hope that some day  it would be President Cameron.    Then  there  was Captain Troup, who looked  after the party while on  the steamers;  F. W. Peters, district freight agent for  Kootenay;   John    G.    Sullivan,    Mr.  Guetilus, A. B. Mackenzie, every inch  of   whose  broad frame  is  filled with  fun,  and   again   everybody's   friend,  "Sid" Sykes.    They can all tell a good  story, and laugh  at  one, too, and can  do as much work on   as little sleep as  the  next man.    What  more could  be  desired?"  ���"WV ��/WW  "/WWir'v\r?

It was an easy matter to pan out  rich'strings of .g-old from the quartz  crppping-s. Shortly after the locations  were made .work was commenced by,  the prospectors. The development  consists of several shafts, sunk', on different portions of the vein, and considerable surface trenching, exposing-  the quartz.' Many tempting- offers  were made to the holders, but they  hung-on'for a richer reward. It was,  however, too hard a struggle for them  to properly develop tlie group without  capital, except the small amount they  could save during- the winter, months  by working in the mines to provide a  g-riib-stake for the summer. Finally,  they bonded the property to the Montreal g-entlemen who are now developing it. '���.'-.  THE DEVELOPMENT.  The work at present consists of cross-  cutting- and drifting- at the bottom of a  45-foot shaft, the sinking of which is  also, shortly to be resumed. This shaft  followed, the. quartz down to a point  where it dipped out. A crosscut is being run north and is now in ore. This  tunnel shows a face of ore, naturally  more or less broken up at so slight a  depth. The drift is being- run westerly  and is in a distance of 20 feet with ore  all the way. The shaft, started by the  original owners, is a double compartment, 5x7 feet in the clear, and is  lagged for the whole diitance dpwru  ON   THE.  SURFACE.; ������  Men are also running a surface open  cut. This open cut is following what  is blieved to be the footwall of the  vein, running east and west. It has  been opened up for fully 60 feet and  some exceptionally rich quartz, showing, free g-old.has been taken out. The  other workings consist of a 20-foot  shaft east of the open cut mentioned.  The sinking of this, is also to be resumed at an early date. ' Two other  prospecting shafts���one north and one j  south of the present 'workings shaft���  have been sunk to a depth of 12 and  16 feet, respectively. From both good  ore'Was taken out. As no depth has  as yet been attained, little sampling  of the ore has been attempted. On  the surface, excluding that ore showing the free gold, values run in the  yellow metal from $7. to $50. Some  assays, have been had running a way  up into the thousands.  SUBSTANTIAL  BUILDINGS.  A substantial boarding-house, constructed of logs, 16x28 feet in the clear,  is Hearing completion'. ; This "will; give  ample accommodation for a force, of  12 to 20 men. There are also comfortable log- bunk-houses, a store-house,  blacksmith shop and stable. A creek  running-��� through a coulee within a  stone's throw of the bunk-house provides plenty of water for both domestic  and mining purposes, and there ,is an  abundance of timber on  the property.  TO FORM A  COMPANY.  After further exploration work has';  been done, and the property continues  to show up as well as it is doing now,  Meacham, Cameron & Co. and their  Montreal associates will probably form  a compan3r to rake up the balance of  the bond ; purchase machinery, which  will soon be absolutely necessary for  the further development of the property, and provide sufficient funds to  place the property on a self-earning-  basis It can be truthfully said of the  Poland China   that for surface show  ing's it is one of more than ordinary  merit���it has,all the ear-marks of a  big- mine���and with proper development, it is hoped, will become a. rich  dividend paj'er. '  ON THE O.  K.  CLAIM. ,   .  Nearby to Chesaw is the 0. K.  claim owned by W. E. Clark, A. H.  Steele and G..F. Horning-. Development started last week, and the men,  while doing surface work uncovered a  promising ledge that is said to measure  six feet.  THE KICH  REVIEW.  Every foot of work now being done  on the Review is showing it up better  than ever. On the second level the  westerly drift is in over 55 feet; The  face of the drift is in good ore,  and for the past week they have had  from six to seven feet of high grade  quartz. It is said that after the first  of the year the force will be greatly  increased.  ������ '. CHESAW. GROWING.' , ...  The town of Chesaw is also steadily  growing-. The hotel Barker is��crowded  all the time. Ernest Peck, the attorney is erecting a building- for office  purposes. ' The townsite company have  in view the early construction of  private residences. J. P. Blaine,' the  assaj'er, has moved into larger arid  more ���comfortable quarters, and will  build a cottage this winter, for his  family. With ' the bright prospects of  the mines and the knowledge that the  Indian -reservation will: shortly be  thrown open for homestead, settlement  the citizens :6f. Chesaw- have good  reason to look forward; with encouragement to the substantial growth of the  coming- town of the Myers creek  valley.

Duncan Ross :........ :. Editor  SATURDAY,   DECEMBER 23,  1S99.  INSURANCE   RATES.  The action of the Board of TJnde -  writers in increasing the rates of in  surance in interior B. C. towns cannot  but make an unpopular institution  more unpopular. L/ike every other  trust, the board acts without rhyme or  reason and cares little for those who  . pay heavy tribute. We are not prepared to say that the rates quoted elsewhere are unreasonable ; but what  people will object.to is an increase of  rates when there was no apparent  excuse for the same. It is reasonable  to suppose that those' responsible for  the actions of the Board of Underwriters knew their business in the past  and that the rates quoted for towns  like Rossland and Greenwood did no  injustice to the insurance companies  that comprise the board. Why, then,  should those rates be increased when  the cities in question made heavy expenditures in order to secure effective  fire protection ? There is absolutely  no encouragement for municipalities  improving their plans for protection  against fire if better water works and  more modern fire apparatus brings a  25 per cent increase in the insurance  rates..: -,  ������..'.-.'���.'���  Business men and others who carry  insurance can expect no relief from  the Board of Fire Underwriters. They  control all insurance, companies. and  their mandate is final. Since they have  such extraordinary power in the matter, the board should see. that those  who are. sent to rate a town are possessed of good judgment and common  sense. ,,    -     ���  THE   LEGISLATURE.  Thursday, January 4th, " the provincial legislature will meet-at Victoria. There are grave doubts as to  whether the government will�� be able  to secure a working majority in the  house. In some of the older provinces,  where party conies before everything  else, it is not likely that the Semlin  government as at- present constituted  could escape defeat; but in B. C. party  lines are not so tightly drawn, and  some of the members, while having no  love for the Semlin government, will  protect it until such time as legislation which they favor can be passed.  We think that if the government  meets with defeat it will be towards  the end of the session and not at the  beginning.  The session is likely to be an interesting and important one. Rival factions will wage a bitter war over the  eight-hour law. There is also a movement on foot among prominent members to assist the government in securing the passage of a fair redistribution  measure. Boundary district will then  be made a separate constituency.  There are many other matters that  will come up for consideration, so that  if the government live the session is  likely to be a memorable one.  ���well as British .freedom  in  the South  African Republic.  Such a contribution is therefore  strictly due, whilst the richly . productive mining and real property of  the Transvaal should be fully capable  of bearing the intended levy, at the  cost of a comparatively slight detraction from profit, rental and interest returns, as the charge in respect of a  South African War Loan will,' in all  probability, add less to the taxation of  such a place as Johannesburg than the  amount by which such taxation will be  reduced on the other hand by the substitution of honest and economic  British rule for the plundering capacity of the Transvaal oligarchs. And  even were it otherwise, the plutocrats:  of Johannesburg would have ho iust  cause of complaint, as too many of the  leading men amongst them have since  the struggle began, been chiefly notable for a combination of cowardice  and meanness. The South African  millionaire has as a rule given relatively to his means but a small sum to the  Transvaal War relief funds, and that  grudgingly and almost of necessity.���  News Advertiser..  PAYING THE MEN.  The postoffice department at Ottawa,  has one redeeming feature. It is always ready to redress grievances when  its attention is called to the same. A  few weeks ago the attention of the  department was called to the gross injustice of throwing enough work on  the local office for three men and giv��  ing one man's pay. The Greenwood  office since the advent of a railway has  been made a distributing point' for  Phoenix-, Midway, Camp McKinney  and other tributary points. This entails additional work but the services  shall not in the future go unrequited.  The department is going to pay for the  work. It has announced its determination to pay its employes and has also  announced the additional salary. It is  four dollars per annum ! Further comment is needless.  Justice For The British Taxpayer.  Mr. A. J. Balfour, speaking as  Leader of the Imperial House of Commons, has corroborated hints before  thrown out by the Chancellor of the  Exchequer, to the effect that the somewhat heavily-burdened British taxpayer is not to bear all the onus of the  cost of the war in South Africa, which  is now likely to be nearer 830,000,000  than the 510.000,000 at first estimated.  The wealth producing property of the  Transvaal is, it seems, to be made to  yield a fair proportion of the cost of a  struggle, which has certainly been  caused in large part by thelnecessity of  protecting British and other capital, as  To Oppose Trusts-  If present plans are carried out the  American Sugar Refining- company,  commonly known as the sugar trust, is  soon to have a new and powerful competitor. Papers are now being drawn  up for the incorporation, under the  laws of the state of. Delaware, of a new  sugar concern having an .authorized  [ capital of $100,000,000. Lawyers, who  are confessedly at work on the incorporation, state positively that the. new  company will be in no way allied with  the sugar trust. They hint strongly  at opposition.  Intimations that F. O. Matthiessen,  who has now severed his connection  with the trust, and other independent  refineries who are arrayed against the  trust are to be merged into the new  company, come from the same source,  although the interests in question deny,  any knowledge, of the scheme. The  new company plans to do business in  Cuba, Puerto Rica and Hawaii as well  as in the United States proper.  Mr. Matthiessen is the leading spirit  in the Glucose Sugar Refining company, which has its headquarters in  Chicago.  Denfinite statements regarding the  proposed new sugar ,company, were  obtained from James Wolcott, a member of the firm of Hughes & Wolcott,  prominent corporation lawyers of  Dover, Del. Mr. Wolcott's partner,  Charles Hughes is secretary of state of  Delaware. Mr. Wolcott was in this  city on business touching the new  sugar concern. When ; questioned regarding the plans of the company he  expressed surprise that they had become public, but admitted that he was  working on the incorporation papers.  "The matter is not yet ready for public announcement," said Mr. Wolcott,  "and I am not at liberty to give any  but the bare details of the scheme.  We purpose incorporating a company  under the laws of Delaware with an  authorized capital of $100,000,000. It  will be called the Colonial Sugar Refining company, although the name  may be changed before the charter is  applied for. It may be the Federal  company. We will have the right to  refine surgar both here and in the  country's new colonies, it being our  idea that sugar grown in Hawaii,  Puerto Rico or Cuba can be refined  there and brought to this country in  the refined state more cheaply than it  can'be refined here after importing the  cane. The headquarters for the new  company will probably be both in New  York and Chicago."  Mr. Wolcott refused to give the  names of the incorporators.  When asked whether the company  will be connected with the American  Sugar Refining company he said:  "Most assuredly not. I think you  will find that we will be quite a different concern."  "Will Mr. Matthiessen or the Does-  chcrs. or the Arbuckles be connected  with your company?"  "All the names and all the facts will  come out in good time. As yet we are  not ready to make any announcements."  "When do you expect that the new  company will be organized?"  "That I can not tell. The incorporation papers are not yet complete. We  are looking carefully into the legal  questions touching on the right to do  business in the colonies. I can say  nothing as to the capital interested in  the company, except that I have been  told that German interests will be connected with it, and that a Wall street  banking house with connections in  Berlin will be interested."  A representative of the Doeschers  said :  "We know nothing of  the new refin  ing- concern. As to the possibility that  it' will buy us out, you may say that  if we  are offered our price,  we may  ���ell.",..'- . ���',.  9fi  *  f FIRST SHIPMENT OF t  |    Clothing  *  *  Hats and  Gaps,  4�� FOR FALL. . . .  * JUST ARRIVED.  *��� V.    .  4��  WM.

K  THE   BOUNDARY       REEK   TIMES,  t.  if '���  "FULLOFACTWITY,"  SAYS J. P. GRAVES TO A REPORTER  He Spoke of the Great Progress Being Made  in the Boundary Creek Camps-The Building of the Grand Forks Smelter - The  Growth of the Town of Phoenix-The  installation of Machinery.  Knob Hill the tunnel' has been run  over 1000 feet, and crosscuts aggregate  800 feet. Number two raise is,190 feet,  and number one is 140 feet. We have  sunk a winze 120 feet below the,tunnel  level, which gives tis a total depth of  310 feet, the deepest work, in the mine.  We have crosscut the Knob Hill vein  over 200 feet in solid ore in two places.  "The whole Boundary country is  full of activity.. I anticipate that  within two years we shail be showing  an output which will rival that of any  other Kootenay district."  When recently  in Spokane,  Jay  P.  Graves, the head of the Grauby smelter at Grand  Forks and some of the  largest companies operating in Greenwood   and  Central   camp,   was   interviewed  by the  mining editor; of   the  Spokesman-Review'   on   how   matters  were   progressing   in   the   Boundary.  Mr.  Graves has probably done more  than any other one  man  for this section of the province, and the following  interview will be read with attention  by those, especially on the outside, who  are interested in the district's welfare :  "In spite of many delays and drawbacks," Mr. Graves said, "we  are still  quite   confident   that we  shall begin  smelting ore at Grand Forks the last of  February.;   That was the date we had  in mind when we started  and by hard  work we shall win out.     AH the buildings   are   inclosed   except the   power,  house   down by .the river.    The dust  chamber is completed arid all the brick  work  is  done  except the smokestack,  which is to be  ISO feet high,  and had  still 50 feet to build when I left.    It will  be finished in ten days.  "About a third of our machinery is  on hand. The railway people have been  hampered by lack of rolling'.. stock,  which has delayed delivery of machinery. - Slow delivery of rails has  impeded the railway construction so  that the C. P. R. people are devoting  their time to the spur building to the  various mines and will not carry the  line forward from Greenwood to Midway until rails come faster. The spur  to the smelter is graded. There is' a  bridge to build and the rails are to be  laid. It should be completed by Feb.  10. We have now to haul.our: machinery and supplies about a mile.  "The dam is progressing well. We  lost over a million feet of logs when  the boom burst a short time ago, all of  it timber for use in the dam.  "The spur to Phoenix camp is not  completed, but will be done about Jan.  1. Two spurs are being built to accommodate the Old Ironsides and Victoria  aud the other to the Knob Hill. We  are building big ore bins on the latest  improved plan. That for the Old Iron-  sids will have a capacity of 6,000 tons.  The Victoria ore bin has a capacity of  4,000 tons and the Knob Hill has the  same. The railway company is giving  us excellent accommodations.  PHOENIX IS GROWING.  "Phoenix is a growing camp  are  about 1,000 people  in  it.  cently platted it.     The Eastern Townships  bank  is  building and will open  for business there Jan, 10.    As  an  indication   of  what  sort  of camp it is I  may   tell you that one firm, the Wyn-  koop  Stevens  Trading company,   has  been doing an average business of $14,-  000 per month, and for two months past  the business has averaged over $15,000  per month.    Others are doubtless doing as well,but I do not kllo^v definitely.  There are two newspapers in the camp.  ���'Our  mines  are in  Phoenix.     Our  employes live there.     We own seven  properties  in  that  vicinity.     Besides  the   ones we are  working   there  are  others being vigorously opened.      The  Dominion Copper Company   owns  the  Stemwinder, Brooklyn and Idaho,  and  is pushing work upon them and several  other     claims.       Heavy      machinery  is going into the Snowshoe, Gold Drop,  and War Eagle, all in aud around  the  town.     Steady   work  is being done on  the   Golden    Crown    and    Winnipeg,  about three miles  away.      There    are  possibly  half a dozen to ten mines being worked>by hand in the camp, but I  cannot tell you about them all.  DIG    MACHINERY PLANTS.  "Some of the Boundary minesare installing big machinery. The Mother  Lode, which was opened to the point  where a smelter was needed to handle  its ores with only a five-drill compressor, is to have a 40-drill plant. We  shall install a 40-drill plant on the Old  Ironsides & Knob Hill additional to  the  present  plant,   making  a  50-drill  in all.  "On the Old Ironsides we are installing one of the largest hoists in  British Columbia. >It .will .be of 50  horse power, and capable of hoisting  6000 pounds from the 1000-foot level.  We expect to hoist with it 200 tons ;-.  day, in addition to the waste.  "Wei are down 330 feet in the Old  Ironsides shaft, and are sinking" with  all speed to the 400-foot level.

The Mainland Board of Fire "Underwriters has issued to each of the  local  insurance agents copies of the  new.in-  surance ratings for this city to go into  effect today.    A perusal of the pamphlet shows that in block 12,  on  Copper  street, the rate has  been  raised from  ��5.50 per S100 of insurance   to   $7.90.  In block 7, on the same thoroughfare,  the  rate has  been  increased from $7  per' $100, formerly   written,   to $8.60.  Take it all, over the  city the increase  will average   about $1 per $100 insurance above the rates heretofore in force.  The increase of  rates now to be enforced  by the Mainland Board, of Fire.  Underwriters came about on the recommendation   of   two  special   inspectors  and raters  who  visited  all the larger  towns  in  the< southern portion of the  province; and were in Greenwood about  the end of October.    These gentlemen  were A. W. Ross and a Mr. Davenport.  There  is one   thing,  however,  to   be  said  in favor of Greenwood, and that  is  that in   comparison with   Rossland  and Nelson the increase here was the  lowest.   At  the former city a  public  indignation;  meeting was  held to protest   against   the  action of the  board.  What effect  it  will   have is  not   yet  known.    Among  the   local   insurance  agents little kick has been raised���its  from  the   merchant   the   kick   will   be  coming���all  they   can   do  is to notify  each of the policy holders in the different companies  they represent of  the  new rate that goes into force today.

It is  hoped by Superintendent W. P. Dick-  sou that the electric fluid will be turned on simultaneously in both towns'by  the middle of February, at the latest.  He makes a liberal allowance in time,  so that the good citizens of the two  places may not be disappointed by forgetting to keep a sufficient supply of  coal-oil and candles on hand, until the  lights are finally turned on: t, -  THE INITIAL  CAPACITY.  The company will install a plant capable of furnishing at the start power  for 3,000 lights. The- management already anticipates thatf- this plant will  not be able to keep up with the demands for an increased service as the  two towns grow, and with this in view  are having the power station so built  that it will hold double the present  plant ordered and now on the road.  The power house is located in the centre of this city on Boundary creek,  near the skating rink. The building,  which: will,be of frame with a corrugated iron roof, was started'this week  It .will be "80x32 feet in size. Aside  track from the main line of the Columbia & Western will be built to the station. The grading for this spur has  started. '��� ��� '  THE MACHINERY PLANT.  The machinery ordered consists of a  dyr.amo   capable   of   furnishing   electricity for 3000  lights.    This dynamo  was shipped on Tuesday by the manufactory, the Royal Electric Co. of Montreal,    The engine will be of 250-horse  power  and will be built by the Water-  ous Engine Works'Co.    Three  boilers,  each   100-horse   power,   have   already  been  shipped.    The bulk  of the wire  and supplies will   be  furnished by the'  Kootenay Electric Supply Co.' of Nelson.    The system is a high  tension���  2000    volts,   transforming    down     to  secondaries of 110 volts, to be used in  distributing to  the customer's'  premises.    The streets  of  Greenwood  will  be lighted for  the  present by a dozen  200-candle-power  arc lamps.   In town  the poles, measuring from 45 to 50 feet  in length, are"  practically   all  erected.  There are over 250 poles, and  as much  as possible through   the   business section the poles have been erected in the  alleys.'  SUPPLY  LIGHT TO  PHOENIX.  The right of way, 200 feet in width,  between Greenwood and Phoenix has  been cleared, and the company will  start at once the erecting of the poles.  The line, to Phoenix will be of a pressure of 5000 volts. Step-up and step-  down transformers will be used, thus  minimizing the loss in transmission to  a very low point.  BIG DEMAND FOR LIGHTS.  The company has met with a large  demand for lights.. In Greenwood  over 2000 lights have been applied for  and in Phoenix 1000 lights. Besides  several of the mines around Phoenix  will also install electric lights. When  the plant is finished and in operation  $45,000 will have been expended.

IN DEADWOOD CAMP.  At a depth of 70 feet the new main  working shaft on  the Buck-horn   eu-  1 countered ore. This was unexpected,  as the shaft was purposely sunk away  from the ore body. The ore brought  to town shows plenty of copper, and  up to the end of the week the sinking  was all in this character. The Buck-  horn   Gold   and   Copper Mining Co.,  ..' owning the Buckhorn group, is composed of Eastern Township capitalists.  ���' W. C. Noble is the business manager  for the company. On the 30th October  last the machinery plant ordered by  the company ..was shipped from the  works, but has not yet arrived. Everything at the mine is in. readiness to  install the same: The machinery consists of half,a 10-drill duplex air compressor, 80-horse-power eng-ine and a  boiler.  A property' in this camp that gives  every promise, from present surface  indications, of turning out well is the  Bengal group of three'claims. Quebec  capital is behind a Spokane; brokerage  firm who recently made a deal for the  property. ��� Superintendent John Mas-  sam has gone to Spokane. Just previous to leaving he said to the Times :  " We have been.doing surf ace .exploration preparatory to sinking. This  work'has been completed, and we have1  opened up the ledge by four crosscuts.  The ledge measures from 60 to 65 feet  and is well mineralized throughout.  The sinking of the main working shaft  is well started ; it is down 18 feet. I  am going to Spokane to arrange for  the final payments to be made on the  property,"  IN GREENWOOD CAMP.  if the ore has at last been struck it is  known only to the miners working in  the tunnel.  IN PROVIDENCE CAMP.  On Monda3r a second car-load ship-  merit of ore from the Gold Bug claim,  in Providence camp, was sent to the  Trail smelter. It required 410 sacks to  fill the car, being about 16,J�� tons of  high-grade ore. The property is one  of a group owned by the Boundary,  Creek Mining and Milling-Co., a full  description of which appeared in last  week's Times.  IN SKYLARK CAMP.  The Last Chance mine will ship a  car-load of ore the coming week to  Trail. The shipment has been anticipated for some time, but owing to the  delay in receiving ore sacks had to La  postponed until next week. .���.���  IN SUMMIT CAMP.

It will probably be, three  weeks before the plant is. housed and  installed���before the sinking of the  double compartment shaft is resumed.  This shaft is now down over 25 feet.  Captain Shields is superintending the  development of the property, which  has an immense ledge, carrying good  values.  Superintendent, Thomas Borden of  the Rathmullen Company reports to  the secretary .that the shaft is now  down a distance of 200 feet, and for  the last 30 feet they were sinking in  well-mineralized rock. It is believed  they are near to the ledge.  MINING MENTION.  The No. 7 Mining Co., owning the  No. 7 claim in Central camp, has been  registered as an extra-provincial company. Frederick Keefer, M.

The samples of ore  brought home by Mr. Barrett came  from the west drift on the lower level,  at a depth of 130 feet from th>; surface.  This ore is some of the richest in the  mine, and will run 22 per cent copper  and S7 in gold per ton. They have  also taken out from these workings  about 40 sacks of very fine decomposed  copper oxides, from which it is an easy  matter, he says, to pan the gold. This  character of ore will average $38 per  ton.  On the Volcanic, R. A. Brown's property, a double shift is driving the long  crosscut tunnel, which is already in  over 700 feet. Mr. Brown, who was in  the city on Wednesday on his way  home from Copper mountain, said that  he believed they were very near the  vein. He had left instructions with  the men that during his absence no  one was to be admitted to the mine, so  building, equipping and operating a" single or  double track tramway riinn.Migr in a northerly  and southerly direction through the City of  Greenwood, In Yale District, in the Province  of British Columbia, and thence running- from  a point in the said city in an easterly direction  to the town of Phoenix.

THE   BOUNDARY      REEK   TIMES.  ���+/~  ���*/"  *%>.  iiiiii.  Xl  I AROUND THE  I X   X HOTEL LOBBIES, f  rinmi��n ���"*>"**�����'������������* wmin<��i��m<ini'iii:  F. E. Michaels, superintendent of the  Spokane Northern Telegraph Co., was  in town the first of the week on a trip  of inspection. He said that business  in his particular line was exceptionally  good throughout the Boundary Creek  district. On this side of the line the  Spokane Northern's connection is the  Yale-Kootenay Telegraph Co.,' Ltd.  This company has offices at Midway,  Grand Forks, Cascade City and h'ere,,  ��� but is directed by the Spokane office;  Asked by the Times;.if .the company  would extend their, service, he replied :  "It is within reason to suppose* that  ire must keep up with the rapid growth  of this section. ; Of course, I am not  in a position to give away any of the  company's secrets: You can say,  though, that it is among- the early  probabilities that Phoenix will be connected." Asked how, business compared here with other points,,he-re-,  plied: "We are doing the largest  business in this section right here in  Greenwood. It can be accounted for  by the fact that you have so. many  tributary camps, ' thus drawing the  people here." The question of rates  was next referred to, and he continued :  " There will be no change in rates. If  anything- the rates are much cheaper  in this country, in, comparison with  the older-settled districts in Canada  and the United States,.when you take  into consideration the heavy, expenses  we are under. Our line is a strictly  overland line. This necessitates the  keeping up of a stable and the employment of extra men. We have in  our employ .the highest-paid linemen  of any telegraph company in the West.  We aim to give the best service possible, and I believe we are satisfying  the public, as I have had no kicks  registered since I have been here."  Mr. Michaels tells the following  little story. At Grand Forks his company installed their office in 'the Yale  Hotel. When President Shaughnessy  of the C. P. R. was last in that city,  his attention was immediately attracted to this fact on entering the  hoteli Turning to one of the citizens  he asked: "Why was our office not  located here ?" And the gentleman  promptly replied:. " Because yeur people were not swift enough." The  president smiled, and doubtless thought  that there was a great deal of truth in  the energetic manner in which his  American rivals went after business.  Sid Rosenhaupt, of the insurance  firm of Rosenhaupt & Weaver, of  Spokane, was ati incoming passenger  on Monday's train. Mr. Rosenhaupt  is secretary of the Boundary Creek  Mining Co., owning the Last Chance  mine in Skylark camp, and while here  went up the hill to see the property.  Just previous to his returning home,  the following day. he was seen by a  Times reporter at the Hotel Armstrong, and in reply to a question  asked about things iii general, said:  "It was only by a mere accident I  was able to come to Greenwood. I had  been down in Republic camp, and in  coming out missed the east-bound train,  so I thought I could not do better than  spend the time profitably in Greenwood while waiting over another day.  I was up to the Last Chance mine and  am more than pleased with the showing. We have been expecting to make  a small shipment, of some of our rich  ore to the Trail smelter, but on account  of the delay in getting ore sacks the  shipment will be made about the end  of the week. We propose now to ship  a full car-load.  "The mine is developed to a depth  of 120 feet by a double-compartment  shaft. This shaft was sunk between  two parallel veins. At this depth we  started to crosscut for the ledges east  and west. The easterly crosscut is in  67 feet; it will have to be driven some  distance further before encountering  the ledge on that side. The westerly  drift is in 206 feet. Of this distance  the last 100 feet was all in well-  mineralized rock. At the end of the  crosscut we started drifting on a most  promising pay chute of rich ore. In  the north drift this chute will average  18 inches; in the south drift probably  10 inches. The ore we are going to  ship comes from these drifts. It is  rich in both gold and silver and runs  from $30 to $267 per ton. The gold  values run from $5 to $30 and the silver  from 126 to 345 ounces. I am more  than satisfied that the Last Chance is  one of the richest mines in the Boundary Creek district."  "*���"  T. P.

Great Activity'at  Copper Street a Scene of  'Present. '  A large amount of building is in  progress all over (the city: Hardly a  day; goes by but one notices the foundations for a new structure being laid,  or men excavating the ground preparatory to laying foundations., Everything being-built is, of a substantial  nature. Even the'cold weather has  not retarded work. Up till the first of  the week construction work has been  more or.less'hindered for, want of lumber. This was overcome for the time  being by the, arrival of a train-load.  But a train-load, or half a dozen train-  loads, goes nowhere when distributed  among contractors who are erecting  three-story frame buildings and residences of every size and description.  It cannot be said to be,a building boom.  It is a steady growth, necessitated by  the rapidly increasing business being  done here, and by the many new arrivals who have decided to make  Greenwood their home.  ON COPPESt  STKRET.  The , greatest scene' of,- building  activity, is on Copper;' street. The  Times man rioted.' the following new  structures^started since the first of-the  week ��� .'���'- ��� '������'':'���'.���.���' ���  Louis Bosshart is building a three-  story frame store and office block on  lots 18 and 19, block 7. The building  is;to have a frontage of SO feet and a  depth of 65 feet. The ground floor is  arranged for two store-rooms. In the  center of the building will be the main  entrance to the upstairs. . On both the  second and third floors there will be 17  offices.' The building will be heated  with hot air. J. Robertson, the architect, .made the plans, and Messrs.  Holt ���<&��� Barger are the contractors.'  The building will cost lib. the neighborhood of $9000 and is to be completed in  by the middle of February.  TOM wai<sh wiij, BUII.D.  Immediately to the south of thi  building, on lots 15 and 16, in the same  block, Thomas Walsh will erect a large  hotel. He is now having the plans  completed. The proposed building will  have a frontage of 50 feet and a depth  of 86. It will be three stories in  height, fitted throughout with: the  most modern improvements, and will  contain from 40 to 50 rooms.       '  THE NEW  WINDSOK  HOTEI,.  Madden & Dallas will expend $12,000  on their new hotel now going upon  lots 31 and 32, block 7, adjoining the  Pacific Hotel. This is the site of the  old Windsor hotel that was partially  burnt to the ground in the lait fire.  The remains of the burnt building  have all been pulled down and carpenters have laid the foundations for  the new one. It will be 50 x 84 feet in  size, frame, three stories and a basement. The new building will have  40 rooms. There will be no dining  room but an entrance will be made  through to the Pacific Cafe and the  one cafe will be utilized by both the  Pacific Hotel and the new hotel.  IN   block 12.  In block 12, frontingon Copper steet  there is also considerable building in  progress. On lot 33 T. Q. Butler and  Frank Parker of this city have erected  a two story frame building that when  finally1 completed will have cost the  owners at least $1,800. The building  has a frontage of 25 feet and a depth  of 60. The ground floor is divided into  two small stores. The upper floor  will have nine rooms.  THE TIMES' NEW OFFICES.  On the lot adjoining to the south of  Caulfield & Lamont's store George  Hiliard the C. P. R. station agent at  Calgary N. W. T. is having built a  two story frame block. Angus McDonald is the contractor. The building is  Hearing completion, the plasterers now  being at work. In size it is 25 x 70  feet, with a full basement. The  ground floor and basement will be used  by THE BOUNDARY CREEK TIMES.     The  upper Moor will be used for offices.  This building represents an investment of $3,000.  AT HIGH FIGURES.  No Real Estate is Movine Very Fast on That  Account.  Little real estate is changing hand*.  Real estate agents all say that property is held up at stiff figures, especially  in the business sections. Some little  residential property is being sold to  those who are anxious to build their  own homes instead of paying the rather high rental demanded by landlords.

For its size Greenwood will shortly  rank as one of the strongest union  towns in the Province. The Miners'  Union and the Carpenters' Union are  both numerically and financially strong  organizations. Monday last the journeymen tailors of the city organized  a union with 11 members. There will  shortly be unions formed by the  plumbers and painters. The printers  are all members of the International  Typographical Union.  A strong efforl is now on foot to  form a Trades and Labor Council,  similar to that in operation at Rossland. Probably this will not be con  sumated until after the plumbers and  painters have effected their organizations.  TAILORS'  UNION.  Eleven journeymen tailors met last  Monday evening for the purpose of  forming a union. James Graney was  elected temporary chairman and  Charles Wilson temporary secretary.  An application for a charter was sent  to the head office of the -Tourneymen  Tailors' Union of America.

All union miners are invited to attend the weekly meetings of the  Phoenix Miners' Union, No. 8, W. F. M:  Tuesdad evenings, at 7:30 o'clock, will  find the meeting in session.  A LITTLE LABEL FABLE.  Now listen to this fable  Of a little, little label  That is worn upon the clothing- that we wear;  It's the product of the ag-e  And it means a decent wag-e  And is g-iven to employers who are fair.  It means a shorter day,  It stands for work and play,  We stamp it on the labor that sell;  So stand up for labor's right  And help to win the fight  And abolish all the ethics of a hell.  ���Nedrey's Free lance.
