GREENWOOD, B.C., SATURDAY,   AUGUST 13, 1898.  101  No, 23  A Boundary Creek District Property with an  Enormous Body of Ore,  To Be Developed by a Powerful Mining Plant  Now Being Installed,  A-company'1 witti plenty of working capital, an efficient  and progressive management,, and the utmost confidence  on the part of the owners in their property, are the factors  which are rapidly changing the Mother lyode claim into one  of the largest producing mines in the world. Everything  about the Mother Iyode is built on a large scale. The distance at right angles across the ledge is 185 feet ; the plant  which is now being installed is the largest -that was ever  purchased to develop a British Columbia property ; the  shaft which is being sunk is the largest in the district ; the  timbering and lining of the shaft are the heaviest, and the  company owning the mine have, placed a large sum in the  treasury for the development of the property.  The Mother I^ode is situated in Deadwood camp, about  three miles from Greenwood. It was located when the old  mining laws were in force, and is consequently 1500 x 600  feet. It was bonded by Colonel Donald Weir of New York  in June, 1896. He associated with him F\ ~L/. Underwood  and J. cF. Tichenor of New York. The Boundary Mines  company was organized and the Mother Iyode property was  developed under the management of Mr. Frederic Keffer,  M. Ey. The work of development was begun in September  1896 and has been continued almost without interruption  until the present time. After a little exploratory work had  been done on the surface, a crosscut tunnel f:was started  near the west line of the claim and about 600 feet from the  lower end line. The tunnel was run in for 246 feet. A  winze was sunk 152 feet from the mouth of the tunnel to the  100-foot level, where considerable crosscutting was done.  It has often been stated that the ore in the Mother L-ode  was of too low a grade to pay mining and treatment. The  development work has conclusively proven that such is not  the case, but that the average values are much higher than  those of the Anaconda mine and other big dividend-paying  properties. A brief description of the development work  will prove interesting because it will show that the Mother  Ivode ore is of sufficiently high value to pay handsome  dividends if proper facilities for treatment are secured.  In the tunnel the ore found immediately next to the  limestone wall was of fair quality, but beyond this, up to  146 feet from the mouth of the tunnel, the grade was low.  At 146 feet ore having much higher values was found, and  this ore continued for a distance of about 80 feet, or tp  within 20 feet of the hanging wall. From here to the hanging wall the ore was low grade. The average values in the  tunnel were much higher than the surface values, and the  values on the 100-foot level were much higher than those in  the tunnel.  The mean assay value for the first six feet of crosscut,  taking all rock, was $18.50 per ton. For the first nine feet-  it was $15.50 per ton, and for twelve feet it was $12 per ton.  Assorted ore, that is ore with the waste taken out, assayed  on an average $30 for 12 feet. The best ore ran $45, and  the copper values were about twice the gold values.    When  the crosscut was turned towards the hanging wall, 38 feet  of good and bad ore gave $8 to the ton, without waste, $13,  and sorted, $17. The ore here is fairly uniform. From 60  feet to the hanging* wall, 11'feet farther, the ore greatly  improved. From 60 to 65 feet the mean value was $10.50  per ton, and with waste out$18 per ton. From 65 feet to 71  feet the mean value was $16 per ton, and with waste out it  was $25 per ton.  ,;-, ��� ���,..'���������  All the assays referred to do not include silver values,  as there is seldom more than 3 or 4 ounces present, usually  less. None of the assays were made for show, but were all  made from wheelbarrow samples. That is from every  ba.rrow and from every bucket of ore taken out of the mine  a few pieces were placed in a box, and from each piece in  the box a smaller piece was broken for the sample.  Mr.r Keffer has secured some interesting assays from  the property. The proportions of gold to copper frequently  vary.    The following assays illustrate this point :  1. Specimen. . . . .... . . .gold, $29.00 ; copper, 10.09 per cen*L  2. From winze. g"ol��V 9.00 ; copper,    8.54 per cent.  3. From winze .gold, 7.00 ; copper,    5.12' per cent.  4. From winze. . ... . . .gold, 3.00 ; copper,    6.32 per cent.  5. From crosscut.. ... .gold, 16.50 ;. copper, 15.20 per cent.  6. From crosscut... .. .gold, 3.00 ; copper, 15:00 per cent.  7. From tunnel. ... . ...gold, 1.50 ; copper,    6.00 per cent.  8. From tunnel.. . .. ...gold, 4.25 ; copper,    1.75 per cent.  9. From tunnel. . g"old, 5.00 ; copper,      .79 per cent.  It will be noticed that in the nine assays the proportion  varies. However as a rule the more copper present the  more gold, but it also seems to be certain that the gold is  not in the copper pyrites but is' associated with the iron  p3'rites. Some gold, however, exists in a free state, as from  30 to 50 per cent, can be amalgamated. The ore can also be  concentrated to a considerable degree. The concentrates  are from 25 to 30 per cent, of the ore concentrated, and they  carry from 50 to 65 per cent, of the copper present and all  the g*old.  Sufficient values have been given to demonstrate that  the Mother Ivode is of sufficiently high grade to warrant  permanent work to be undertaken on a scale commensurate  with the vast promise of the property. The Anaconda mine  of Butte is a big dividend payer. Here is an average assay  from the property: Copper, 4.64 per cent.; silver, 4.16 oz.;  gold, $0,014, making a total of $12.86 to the ton. If the '���  Anaconda can pay dividends with this value, there is absolutely no reason why the Mother L,ode should not pay larger  dividends, as the conditions are equally favorable and the  values higher.  The owners appear to be filled with the same impression  for they are going* to work on   a  large  scale.    L,ast spring  Mr. Keffer went  east, and   during his visit in New York a-  new company was organized for   the  purpose   of   acquiring  and developing-the Mother L,ode  and   adjoining properties.  The company was called the   British   Columbia Copper Co.,  limited.    The promoters are the shareholders in the Boundary Mines Co., with a few additional capitalists.    Mr. F. L,.  Underwood, New York, is president of the'B. C. Copper Co.;  Mr. James Tichenor, New York, vice president, and Mr. W.   .,  W.    L/.    Garey,   New  York,  secretary,   while the  resident  manager   and   agent  is   Mr.   Frederic   Keffer, M.  E).    The  company is capitalized for  $1,000,000,   divided   into   200,000  shares of $5 each.    Shortly after incorporating 30,000 shares  were placed in the treasury and were at once sold.  The company at once purchased a powerful plant from  James Cooper & Co. of Montreal, representing the Ingersoll-  Sergeant    company.      The     machinery    consists    of   one  (Concluded on page 4.) THE   BOUNDARY   CREEK   TIMES;  THE   MOTHER   LODE   MINE.  (Continued from page 3.)  Irigersoll-Sergeant  Class  A  air   com--  pressor, 18 x 24, for operating 10 drills;  two 60-horse power  horizontal  tubular  boilers   with   feed   water  heater   arid  necessary   pumps;   one   steel   air  receiver;   air  drills  for  compressor, 2>%  inches  ,, in  * diameter ;   all    necessary  mountings, hose,   etc. ;   one  Northey-  Camerori  sinking  pump,   10 x 5" x 13 ;  one LVedgerwood reversible link  hoisting engine, double cylinders,   8% x 10;  drum, 30 x 26, and 600 feet  wire  rope ;  two   steel   ore  cars,   two  ore  and one  water   bucket, and  over  2,500  feet of  piping.    There is also an electric light  plant,   consisting   of   an   Ames   Iron  Works Layely   engine   and   a  50  light  Edison dynamo.  A large force of men are now at  work installing the plant under the  superintendence of Mr. HenrY" Johns.  The water will be furnished from  . Mother Eode creek by a Knowles pump  7 x 3%.Two large water tanks are  being built, one 30 feet above engine  house, and the other 75 feet above the  shaft. The latter is intended for fire  protection purposes. The boilers, Compressors and electric light plant are  being placed in position immediately  below the shaft. The hoist is immediately above the shaft, where a  foundation has been excavated from  the side hill. Mr. Keffer intends looking after the comfort of his men, for  adjoining the boiler rooms is to be  erected a bath room, where the men  may enjoy hot or cold water baths.  The other buildings include bunk and  boarding houses and the superintendent's residence. The machinery will  probably be in position and in working ,  order in three weeks. The plant complete cost over $18,000.  It is the intention of the company to  sink the shaft, which is now down  about 40 feet, to the 500-foot level. It  is a double compartment shaft, eacn  compartment being 4)4 x 5 feet. This  is to be timbered with square timber,  12 x 12, and lined with 2-inch planking.  One compartment will have a ladder-  way with landing platforms every 15  feet. The shaft beg*ins near the hanging wall, but will cross the ore body in  probably 250 feet. Drifts and crosscuts will be run at the different levels  and the ore will be stoped out for  shipping.  The company also own the Primrose  and Offspring, adjoining claims. A  40-foot shaft has been sunk oh the  Primrose and the ore bodjr crosscut for  150 feet. In this crosscut the ore  3rielded assays of 20 per cent, copper  and $15 in gold.  The Mother Eode is to be developed  and operated on a large scale. The  company will probably erect a plant  for treating- the ore. The mine will  g*ive employment to a large number of  men. It will be one of the leading  factors in making Boundary creek a  rich, prosperous and populous mining  district.  Law & Co.'s goods simply cannot be  beaten.    Trv them.  ��'-2v*i  *S@>.

The  following   dispatch   appears, in  last Tuesday's Rossland Miner :  Victoria, B.C., Aug. 8. ���The lieutenant-governor to-day called upon the  Hon. Robert Beaven to form a new  provincial government and Mr. Beaven  has undertaken the task. It is understood that the lieutenant-governor acted  on his own responsibility in the matter.  Mr. Beaven has not been, a member of  the legislature since 1894, when he  was defeated at the general elections.  At the election just held he was again  defeated in Victoria, where he stood as  an independent. Mr. Beaven was  minister of lands and works from 1872  to 1876, finance minister from 1878 to  1882, and premier from 1882 to 1883,  when his ministry resigned.  Lieutenant-Governor Mclnnes has  intimated in an interview the  reasons for his course of action with  respect to the present government.  He says that it appeared to him that  the result of the elections did not show  sufficient confidence on the part of the  people to justify the government in  making further expenditures or appointments and that on the 14th of  July he notified the premier to that  effect. The government, however1,  kept on its usual course, so this morning the lieutenant-governor asked for  the resignation of the ministry. Since  the opposition did not appear to be  united on any leader he had sent for  Mr. Beaven. It is understood that Mr.  Beaven will ask for and be granted ah  immediate dissolution.

The Corbin roads are now controlled  by the Great Northern Railway company. The formal transfer was made  in Spokane on Monday last. J. J.  Hill, president of the Great Northern,  and D. C. Corbin arranged the matter,  and the following officers were chosen :  Spokane Falls and Northern���President, J. J. Hill; vice-president, Cornelius Shields ; trustees, J. J. Hill,Cornelius Shields, Frederick Mason, J. D.  Farrell, Will H. Thompson and Thos.  G.Thompson.;  Columbia and Red Mountain���President, Cornelius Shields; vice-president, Will H. Thompson ; trustees, W.  H. Thompson, Cornelius Shields and  J. D. Farrell.  Mr. Corbin is applying for the Kettle  River Valley Railway- charter. He in-  ' tends to obtain the charter if possible,  and when obtained he intends to construct the road. Mr. Corbin has intimated the above in a letter written to  a gentleman in Greenwood. This does  away with the rumor that the application was being made on behalf of the  Great Northern Railway company.  Mr. H'...T. Wilgress, the right of way'  agent for the C.P.R., is in the city.  The hot weather and continual bickerings of the people of Grand Forks  made him slightly weary, so he is how  enjoying the cool mountain breezes in  Greenwood. Mr. Wilgress states that  Mr. Hamilton, the land commissioner,  will reach the city in a few days, when  final arrangements for the right of  way and terminal facilities will be  made.  Mr. C. E. Rice, the C. P. R. engineer, is in the city. His party is  running branch lines in and around  Summit camp. G  Mr. W. F. Tye's many friends will  regret to learn that he is in the hospital at Trail, suffering from typhoid  fever.  A dispatch from Trail states that  work on the Robson-Penticton branch  of the Columbia and Western railway,  under contract to Mann, Foley Bros. &  Larson, may now be said to be fairly  underway. The headquarters of the  contractors in this city are daily becoming a scene of increased activity as  the force of laborers at work, is being  augmented. During the month of  June the force was comparatively  small, probably not numbering oyer  400 or 500 men, and most of these being  occupied but a small portion of the  calendar month, and then largely in  preparing for the hundreds and thousands that were to follow. Consequent^'- the amount disbursed by the  paymaster on the 20th of July was  comparative^' small. At present,  however, the force is much larger, and  has gradually been increased until  probably 1,200 men are now in the employ of the several sub-contractors.  As a result, the next paY day, August  20. will doubtless see a large amount  of cash disbursed, probably $30,000, a  goodly share of which will, of course,  find its way into the hands of the enterprising business men of Brooklyn.  The   city   itself   is still  growing   and  everyone in trade appears to be doing  an excellent business. There is a lack  of hotel accommodations, and yet every  night every bed in each one'of the  hotels is occupied. This week two  new hotels are being* completed, making a total of sixteen in this seven  weeks' old cit3r. While this line seems  to the casual observer to be overdone,  yet there is little doubt they will all do  well after the next pay day.  Superintendent Brown of the tote  road gang has now succeeded in getting his needful highwav built for a  distance of twenty miles out of Brooklyn, and is pushing it at the rate of a  quarter of a mile per day. The road  has already crossed two summits, and  where the 3,100-foot tunnel goes through  the mountain the road crosses by a  series of switchbacks.  String's of heavity laden wagons are  going out each day delivering supplies  to the ten or twelve sub-contractors  already busily at work on their part of  the new railway line. McX/ean Bros.,  who secured the contract for the big  tunnel j have their camp about four  miles from town, and have about 90  men at work on the line of the railway  switchbacks, which will, be used until  the tunnel itself is ready. This contract will take a year or more to complete, and at least 200 more men will  be employed.  Nearly all the sub-contractors complain of a shortage of help, and as a  rule say they could use two or three  times as many men as are now employed. Paymaster B. F. Woodman  states that he expects between 3,000  and 4,000 men will be on the payrolls  by September 1.$ The shortage is due  largely to the great amount of construction now going on in different  parts of Canada, including the Crow's  Nest line and that in the Rainy River  district, as well as the many employed  at present in the harvest fields south  of the international boundary line.  However, the contractors are determined to leave no stone unturned to  secure help and push the work, and  now in far eastern cities  for men, the result of  which effort is expected soon to be felt.  agents are  contracting  SPOKANE   FRUIT   FAIR.  H. Balster, the enterprising manager  of the Spokane Fruit Fair, is sending  out circulars telling the people that  this year's fair, which opens October  4th and closes October 15th, will be on  a larger and grander scale than any  of its predecessors, and the musical  and other attractions will be an agreeable surprise to its patrons. From an  attraction standpoint the leading feature of this 3'ear's fair will no doubt be  the moving pictures on a mammoth  scale of all the latest war scenes by  sea and land, which have been secured  in the east at great cost. Many of the  now famous battle scenes at the Pnil-  lippines, Cuba and Porto Rico, will be  reproduced with thrilling effect at  each evening- performance of the fair.  A nominal admission fee of fifteen  cents will again admit the visitor to  all the features of the fair. The various transportation companies centering at Spokane have put into effect a  2-cent per mile passenger rate effective  at all times throughout the fair.

On Tuesday last  they were run out of camp by forest  fires. They lost nothing but a few  sacks of charcoal.  The editor of the Grand Forks Miner  does not know the difference between  wit and obcenity. The publication of  a few more squibs such as appeared  last week will probably force the post-  office authorities into forbidding* the  transmission of indecent literature  through the mails.  Mayor Wood, Alderman Galloway  and Charlie Galloway returned from a  three weeks' expedition to the Kettle  River country on Saturday last. They  explored a large section of county and  report that the indications are favorable to the opening up of a large and  rich   mining  district.

There will be two stores oh  the ground floor.  The fishing party which went up  Kettle river returned home on Saturday last. They intended to remain  longer but the party struck on the fare  provided by Chief Cook A. S. Black  and Assistant D. G. McRae; and it was  decided that the easiest way out of the  difficulty was to break up camp and  return home.  The Kettle River Dressed Beef and  Provision company has leased its  Greenwood street butcher shop to  Messrs. McDowell & Jobson. Another  shop is being* fitted out on Copper  street. It is the intention of the K. R.  D. B. & P. Co. to engage in the wholesale meat trade exclusively.  Mr. Sullivan, Chief Engineer Tye's  assistant, came over from Trail on  Thursday. He reports that Mr. Tye's  illness is not as serious as at first reported, and that he will be all right in  a few days. Mr. Sullivan stated that  good progress wras being made on the  rood. : He went up to the engineers'  camp at the summit.  The police have issued a fiat that  horses or cattle sojourning in the city  must not carry bells. The order has  been complied with, and the night is  ilo longer disturbed by untuneful cowbells. If the police could invent a  scheme to silence the half a hundred  curs which make the night hideous,  they would earn the gratitude of the  majority of the citizens.  The remains of John Dolquist were  brought to Greenwood on Sunday last.  Dolquist, who was working on Myer's  creek on the American side, was attacked by inflammation and died after  a day's illness. John L,ind and John  M. Arundell, who were with him,  brought the body to Greenwood.

I  ���        .-.*' I  THE   POLICY   OF   DELAY.  The interview with Mr. Hugh Sutherland, published in another column,will  prove interesting reading- to those  credulous individuals who were ready  to worshi-p the Turner government because the active construction of the  Penticton-Boundary Creek railway had  been commenced. The elections are  now oyer, and one who ought to know  what he is talking about, announces  that no effort will be made to build the  railway until a subsidy is forthcoming  from the Dominion government. The  few men and horses sent down to Penticton previous to the election were  used for election purposes only.  Mr. Sutherland's statement  that the  V. V. & E. company had entered into a  new   arrangement   with    the   Turner  government   is   probably    true.    The  Times has maintained   all   along   that  this company should   be  classed   with  the other subsidy hunters aind charter-  mongers, aud that the}*   never  showed  any earnest of their   intention to build  the road.    It is evident that the Turner  g-overnment   intended   to   continue   its  vicious   practice   of   showering  favors  on railway companies   in violation of  acts of parliament.    The arrangement  spoken   of   by Mr. Sutherland appears  satisfactory   to   the V. V. & E. people,  because   it   allows    them    to    wait    a  year   in    expectation   of   a   Dominion  subsidy. Such an arrangement could  have been ratified by the legislature at  its next session, provided Mr. Turner  had behind him the same pliant,  obedient followers who sat in the house  during previous sessions. Fortunately  for the country, but unfortunately for  the subsidy hunters, that subservient  following has disappeared, and it is  quite possible that any arrangement  made with the Turner government,  contrary to the letter and spirit of the  stibsid3* act, may be annulled by the  legislature.  The placing of conditions in a subsidy act is useless if private arrangements can be made b3* the government  violating these conditions. Under the  act granting a subsid}*- to the Pentic-  ton-Boundary Creek railwaj*, active,  work had to be commenced by August  8th last. Instead of living* up to these  conditions, a railway company having*  a charter to construct the road, makes  arrangements under which they can  delaj* construction for another year.  Every one is anxious to see the'  Penticton:road constructed, but con- ,  struction will never be expedited by  Turner methods. Since the railway  company has disregarded the time  limit, the subsidy should not be granted  The people should be given a chance.  The surest way of getting* railways  speedily constructed is to impress railway promoters with the fact that acts  of parliament are not iiiade to be  broken, and that every condition imposed must be rigidly observed before  .subsidies can be earned.  Road Jmprovements.  ���'Numerous complaints have reached  us that the roads in the vicinity of  Cascade City and Christina lake are in  an almost impassable condition. That  section of the district appears to have  been neg*lected b3r the road superintendent. The Dewdney trail is also  sadly in need of repairs. There are  seyeral farms around Christina lak*0;  and many claims on the mountain side.  The district is being rapidly settled  and the road superintendent should  show his appreciation of the importance of this and other sections by making some improvements.  So long as public money is spent  with a political object in view, so long  will complaints be numerous regarding bad roads'''and worse trails.

It has been idle  since the railway company bought the  plant, and the time has been spent in  adding* to it and making it ready for  the largely increased business which it  is expected will follow the adoption of  the plan of the new owners of smelting  ores at cost.  The second furnace will be started  within ten clays. The furnace is running a low blast and is putting-through  about 180 tons per day. with matte of  higher grade than usual. About 18,000  tons of ore are roasting.  The foundation has been started for  the lead furnace and a portion of the  machinery is in transit. As soon as  the furnace is in, ore will be shipped  from the Slocan. The smelter can  now treat 350 tons per day. With the  lead furnace in operation the output  can be swelled to 500 tons.  This is the first time the smelter has  been run by electric power alone. The  power is supplied by the company's  plant, which also furnishes light for  the town. Additional power will soon  be furnished from Bonnington Falls.  Foundations for the big motors are  about to be completed, and shipments  of electrical machiner3r will be made  from the east in a few days. The brick  transformer house for the Bonnington  Falls power will be started in a few  days.  The  Weather.  It wras decidedly warm during the  past week. The thermometer fairly  sizzled with the heat aud it was almost  necessary to place it in nn ice-box to  keep the niercur3* down below 100. No  record was kept of the temperature in  Greenwood, but the following record  from the Midway government office  will g-ive an idea of the exceedingly  warm w^eather.

Lieutenant - Governor    Mclnnes     is  making* provincial history.    It  is   history which is neither creditable to him  nor   to   British   Columbia.    While   his  action    in   sending   for   Hon.   Robert  Beaven to form a  government may be  constitutional, it is in accordance with  neither   -practice   nor   precedent.      At  this  distance   it   appears  like   a highhanded procedure to  foist another Mclnnes upon  the   people   of  British Columbia. It appears as if the lieutenant-  governor has taken   advantage of Mr.  Beaven's thirst  for  office  in  order to  secure a position for his bumptious son.  If the lieutenant-governor  deemed it  expedient to  dismiss   the   Turner government, he should  have  called  upon  Mr. Semlin to  form  a  ministry.    The  excuse   that   the  opposition  have not  selected a leader, will   not  hold water.  Mr. Semlin was  regular!3r��� chosen the  leader of the  opposition,   and   he  continues   leader   until   his   successor   is  appointed.  We feel confident that none of the  opposition members will endorse the  action of the lieutenant-governor. A  designing and unscrupulous Turner is  preferable to a fossilized Beaven or'a  selfish Mclnnes. ���  The province   is   burdened   with   too ,  much Mclnnes now.    To force another  member   of   the   family   through   the  back door to a   cabinet  position would  be simply intolerable.  CIVIC   IMPROVEMENTS.  Should the city debentures be sold,  all improvements should be made in  such a manner that the employes and  the city will derive the greatest benefit.  We are in favor of carrying out all  municipal work b3r day labor, but if  the council decide upon contracts,  several conditions should be inserted  in those contracts. One is that no  Chinese or Japanese can be employed  on city work ; another should stipulate  the wages to be paid the men ; a third  that wages must be paid weekly, and a  fourth should limit the hours per day  men ar**-. to be employed.  THE   LE   ROI   DRAMA.  Another act was introduced in the  IveRoi drama on Tuesda3r last, when  Col. W. W. D. Turner and Senator  Turner sued the leaders of the Pe3rton  faction and the officials of the B. A. C.  for $780,000 damages. They allege  that the damag*es were caused by the  fraudulent, conspiring of the defending  parties which depreciated the value of  the stock.  OPPOSITION   REFUSE.  i.Iessrs. Semlin. Cotton and Martin  have refused to join Beaven in a  ministry. Joe Martin in an interview  declared his position as follows :  *'I came ��� to Victoria 03' invitation of  Mr. Beaven, and in a conference with  him was requested to join his government. I had no hesitation in declining  as I belong" to the opposition with 19  elected members and I believe we are  capable   of   choosing  our   own leader.  That question would have been harmonious^7 disposed of at the Vancouver convention the other day, but for  the fact that three of the opposition  members were absent. I may say that  I entirely disagree with the governor's  action in dismissing Mr. Turner. It  is, of course, Mr. Beaven's duty to accept the responsibility of the governor's  action in inviting him to form a  ministry'. I endeavored to learn from  him what reasons he could offer to the  public in justification, but he entirely  failed in suggesting even the shadow  of a reason for ' the course taken:  Public opinion in Vancouver is unanimously against the course that has  been adopted, and it will be impossible  to get a single man of any standing  there to run as a supporter of Mr.  Beaven. I believe the same feeling  prevails to a great extent in Victoria."  GREENWOOD   AND   DISTRICT.  W. T. Smith is convalescent after a  rather severe illness.  J. P. McLeod of Midwa3r was in the  cit3* oh legal business this week.  A. S. Vedder, of Spokane, rode in on  his wheel from Marcus this week.  Duncan Mcintosh of the Winnipeg  mine was in Greenwood   on Thursday.  Hugh Wood and Mr. Elliot have returned from a week in camp at Iyong  lake.  Fy. C. Davison of Kamloops made a  business trip through the district this  week.  August 31st,is the last day upon  which city taxes can be paid in order  to save the rebate.  if.  J. A. Schubert, the road superintendent, came in on Friday's Penticton  stage. It is his intention to start road  improvements in this section of the  district. ,.,  Dan Mann, of the firm of Mann,  Foley Bros. & I^arson, is expected to  visit Boundary creek in a few days.  He is heavily interested in Bounda^-*  Creek mines.  Mr. F. S. Barnard is negotiating  with the Townsite company for the  Boundar3r Falls water power. It is  Mr. Barnard's intention to install a  large electric light plant.  Right of Way Agent Wilgress has  decided that the line shall not run  through Iyower Grand Forks. The  railway will cross the Kettle river at  Ruckle Bros'ranch, and pass through  the upper town where the station will  be -nlaced.  Cheap Assessment.  Several of the claim owners along  the line of r.ailwa3" are congratulating  themselves that they are going to g*et  their assessment work done cheaply.  In order to build a track it will be  necessary to run many open cuts  through mining claims and the owners  think that these will be acceptable as  improvements on their properties.  Along the North Fork several new  claims have been located on the proposed line of raUwa3r. "Iron capping*"  is no longer put forth as the chief  merit of a prospect. The proximit3r of  the railwa3r is now the selling* qua.lit3'  of a wildcat.  W.   M.   Ltaw   &   Co.,   g*eneral    merchants, respectfulH* solicit your patron-  air e.

Victoria, Aug*. 9.--Hon. R. Beaven  has not yet completed his cabinet although yesterday he anticipated to be  able to announce its composition within  24 hours.  " I find it takes time," he said in explanation this morning*, "but. I am confident that a few days will be sufficient  to organize a strong* administration,  with plenty of vigorous new blood, and  capable of initiating* and pursuing* a  progressive development policy."  The talk of the day has been chiefly  as to the prospects of coalition, many  of Hon. Mr. Turner's friends urging  him to accept a compromise and join  with Mr. Semlin in Mr. Beaven's  cabinet. On the other hand, Attorney-  General, Eberts and Provincial Secretary Baker are naturally advocating*  war to the death, and their councils  prevail.  The lieutenant-governor's note of  alleged dismissal was replied to to-day,  the constitutionality; of his course  being challenged, and trust being  placed in Ottawa to repudiate the action taken, and, if necessary, to remove the lieutenant-governor from  office.  In the meantime. Hon. Mr. Beaven  has not shown any disposition to treat  for a coalition, all who are known to  have been summoned by him for conference being pronounced oppositionists. The first of these is W. W.'.B.  Mclnnes of Nanaimo, son of the lieutenant-governor, and who resigned his  seat in the commons just prior to the  general election. He is generally supposed to have advised the governor's  unanticipated action, and he is to be  slated by Mr. Beaven in reward by receiving the attorney-generalship.  Hon. Joseph --Martin arrived this  evening from Vancouver, and C. A.  Semlin, the last leader of the opposition, and Mr. Beaven's old lieutenant,  will be here to-morrow, further intensifying the interest in the situation.  Decisive returns were received today from Cassiar, the election in this  northmost district resulting favorably  to the Turner candidates, Clifford and  Irving, and their opposition rival in  the running losing his deposit. This  leaves the house evenly divided, 19 of  the new members being pledged Tur-  nerites and 19 oppositionists. The  three protests now 'filed may radically .  affect the final result of the precipitate,  action of the lieutenant-governor and  may infinitely simplify the complicated situation through a fresh appeal  to the electorate.���Rossland Miner.  Ore Exhibit.  Mr. Jacobs of Midway is gathering  an ore exhibit for the New Westminster  exhibition. It is hoped that mine  owners will co-operate with Mr.  Jacobs, so that the exhibit may do  justice to the mineral resources of the  district.  " Heraldo " is  a  choice cigar.    Try  them.

He was  of the opinion that the provincial.  .subsid3r would be augmented by a Do-  ~; minion subsidy next year. When it  -was pointed out to him that under the  teruis of the act granting- the subsidy  from Penticton to Boundary creek,  active construction should have been  begun on Aug-ust 8, he replied that a  new arrangement had been made by  the company with the government,  whereby the time would be extended  until next year. He was asked how  the government could enter into such  an arrangement in violation of an act  of parliament. He replied that prob-  nbly parliament would ratify the arrangement next session. The company had a promise from the Dominion government that a federal  subsid3r would be granted next session.  Thos.

JAMES  D, SWORD, Manager,  "'"" JIMMIU HH1TMM  THE   CITY   DEBENTURES.  In all probability the city debentures  will be sold in a few days. At last  Monday night's meeting* of the council  an offer for $25,000 worth of debentures  was received from Mr. W. Iv. Hogg of  Montreal. Mr. Hogg offered $23,000  for the debentures, but wished to leave  the offer open until his return to  Montreal. If the council accepted his  offer they could draw on him for $5,000  immediately, $5,000 on September 15th,  $10,000 October 15th, and $3,000 on November 1st. The council held a special  meeting-on Tuesday morning* to consider the offer and decided to accept the  same, provided no better bargain could  be made before Aug-ust 20th.  During Monday nig-ht's meeting* Aid.  Galloway stated that he had received a  letter from Mr.-L. A. Hamilton, the C.  P. R. land commissioneer, in which the  latter stated that he had written several  financial firms regarding* the Greenwood debentures, and that they have  all made enquiries relative to Greenwood's standing* with the C. P. R. Mr.  Hamilton expected to be in a position  in a few days to inform those firms  that it is the intention of the C.P.R. to  encourage Greenwood in every way.  He will visit here in a few days, when  final arrangements will be completed  between the C. P. R. and the Townsite  compan}'".  Mr. Hogg addressed the council  briefly. He' stated that he was interested in the district and was determined to do everything* to promote the  interests ot the Cit}*- of Greenwood. He  appreciated the fact that the debentures were absolutel}- g-ood security,  but the difficulty lay in the fact that  eastern financial firms having- no connection or interest in the district did  not have the same .high appreciation of  the stability of the town.  Work will be commenced immediately  on the waterworks and street improvements, if the debentures are sold. The  council are determined to have all the  work completed before the wet weather  sets in.  KETTLE   RIVER -WAGON    ROAD.  Along* the Main Kettle river, the  West Fork, Canyon creek and the other  numerous   tributaries   of   the    Kettle  river, above   Rock  creek,   have   been  located many claims that give promise  of being developed into   rich   and   permanent .mines.'   During the year prospectors have . flocked into this district,  scattering in every direction and making their locations in different sections.  It is not  too  much  to   say that the  Kettle river section will yet  become a.  mining district  almost  if  not  as important   as   Boundary   Creek   district  proper.    It is a district which ought to  receive   every   encouragement.      The  prospectors who are  rapidly making* it  one of  the  great  mining  districts  of  Southern* British Columbia   should   no  longer be left handicapped by the lack  of roads and trails.    A wagon road was  constructed some time   ago   for   a   dis-  tance of five   miles   above Rock Creek,  but this road   has   not   been   kept in a  proper state  of repair.    The  road between Rock Creek and Deitz's ranch is  anything but  creditable  to  the  lands  and  works   department.    A  few  hundred  dollars   would  make   it a  fairly  good road, but to-day it is only a striking commentary upon the carelessness  of the   department   having  charge   of  the roads of the province;    The winter  rains have washed mud  and rock from  the hillsides and  piled  them   upon the  road-bed.    The road is now almost impassable  for wagons.    The portion already constructed should be at once repaired   and   the   road  should   be   continued along Kettle river.  Heretofore the people of this district have paid taxes to the provincial  government and built roads by private  subscription. This practice is unjust  and inequitable and should be discontinued. Wagon roads should be constructed by the provincial government  and the expenditure should come from  the   mone}*   paid   into   the   provincial  treasury.  The Kettle  river   wagon   road is an  absolute necessity. The people who  are crowding* into the district can very  properly demand a means of ingress  and egress. If the road is constructed  it will encourage claim holders to develop their properties, and thus help in  making- another important mining  district   in Southern British Columbia.

A large amount of work has ���been  done .this season on properties in West  Copper camp. On the Golden Treasure  two shafts have been sunk, one 23 and  the other 25 feet. The pre bodies run  from 3 to 8 feet in width, and assays  run as high as $38 to the ton. The  claim was located in 1897 by David  Bryant.    The ore is arsenical iron.  Another claini located by Mr. Bryant  last year is the Prince of Wales, on  which two shafts, 25 and 18 feet, have  been sunk. A crosscutt of 13 feet has  been run from the shaft but no walls  have been found.  The Aberdeen has been prospected  by sinking* a shaft 19 feet deep, .9 long*  and 5 wide. In both the Prince of  Wales and Aberdeen are very large  bodies of pyrrhotite iron ore. The  three claims are under bond to eastern  capitalists, for whom Mr. Bryant is  superintending development work.  Work is being done on a number of  other claims in West Copper. A Rossland outfit has been working there all  summer.  Register Your Names.  Only a few have so far availed  themselves of the opportunity to  register their names on the provincial  voters' list. . There are still many  residents of the district properly  qualified who have neglected, to  register. Blank forms may be had at  different offices in the city. /Those  who have not registered should attend  to the matter at once.  Paid the Bond.  Mr. W. L. Hogg returned to Montreal  on Tuesday. Before leaving he made  the final payment on the C. O. D. bond.  This property was bonded last 3Tear  bv Mr. Hogg from Robert Donegan for  $10,000. Mr. Hogg visited his mining  properties at Granite creek. Before  leaving he expressed himself4 as being  well satisfied with the outlook for his  Boundary Creek properties. He in- %  tends developing them and placing  them on a shipping basis. Mr. Hogg-  was also pleased, with the many improvements made in Greenwood since  he was here last year. He has every  confidence in the future of the town  and district. ���H  i ^  w*  GREENWOOD CITY is the central town and supply  point" of the Boundary Greek mining camps, From this  new   town   roads   lead   to   the  DEADWOOD  /7>    ������-:  Lots  are  selling  freely   and  are  a  good  investment  -o-  For price of Lots and other information address  Robt Wood or C S, Galloway*  Greenwood City, Boundary Creek,  Or  apply  to  the  Agents t  Vernon, EC  A.
