Vol, L  GREENWOOD CITY/B,C,/SATURDAY, DECEMBER 19, 1896.  Na 15,  TOPICS   TOR   THE   WEEK.  On the 25th ult., the editor of The Times  addressed  the  following letter to Mr. F. Aug. Heinze :  Dear Sir,���The people of this district are naturally anxious to learn what steps are being taken by you towards  the construction of the Columbia & Western road from  Rossland to Penticton, and when ? Also would you be g-ood  enough to inform me whether or not you have deposited the  $50,000 with the government according to the conditions  upon which you obtained your charter and land subsidy.  Mr. Heinze kindly sent this reply;:'.  Traii,, B.C., Dec.7th, 1896.  Re Construction of road to Boundary Creek region.  Bditor, Boundary Creek Times, Greenwood :  Dear Sir,���Acknowledging receipt of your favor of the  25th ult., I beg to state that the deposit of $50,000 referred  to has been made and that we are now receiving bids for  construction of the first section of the line toward your  country.���Yours very truly, F. Aug. Heinze.  So far, so good. , Of course to receive bids for work to be  done does not imply that work will be done.'   Nevertheless,  it is fairly evident that Mr. Heinze means business.  s&  '/if  S!&  Slk  '/If  " 'Tis true, 'tis pity ; 'tis pity, 'tis true," that while the  people of Boundary Creek work like Trojans to organize  societies, send petitions by the score to the legislature'; advertise and spend their private means, all in order to hasten  the development of the district, they are lamentably remiss  in one very important respect: they fail seemingly to grasp  the fact that it is individually to their greatest possible advantage that the affairs of the whole country are wisely  administered, and that their representatives in the House  are capable and disinterested men. Politics, provincial or  federal, awaken little enthusiasm on Boundary Creek. It  is a case of a man, when he has a door to his cottage, using  his chimney as means of egress and ingress. Yet when the  prospector is obliged to cut his own trail, when for want of  adequate police protection outrages are perpetrated in broad  daylight, there is grumbling enough. What this district  wants is an> energetic and well informed local man to represent its interests at Victoria; but unless the voters' list  shows that we are entitled to this consideration, we may as  well want in silence for all the good it will do to. take any  other course. We will venture to assert that the list of  voters for the southern division of the constituency of iDast  Yale does not include more than one-third of the names of  those entitled to the franchise. The newly organized associations might with beneficial result make it part of the  good work they are doing in the interests of the district,: to  see that voters in Boundary whose names do not at present  appear on the list, be placed thereon at once.  sn    s&  '/if    '/if  Sit-  ->lf~  Mr. Donald Graham, M.P.P., writes to The Times to say  that in his opinion the legislature will take no steps towards  preventing aliens from locating mineral ground in the province. Referring to the non-successful motion introduced  for this purpose by Dr. Walkem last year, Mr. _Graham  states : " From appearances at that time I should say that  it would be an utter impossibility for anyone to carry such  a measure through.the Hou.se, constituted as it is at present." If Mr.'- Graham, who certainly should be well  informed, is correct, it would be interesting- to know where  and how the rumor, which has gained wide credence and  been much commented upon by the mining press of the  province, originated.  '/if  sn  '/��  Sit,  '/If  An astonishing number of applications   are   being  made  to the legislature from  companies  asking  for  charters  to  supply the several towns of Yale and Kootenay with water  and light. By all means, Messieurs Promoters, go ahead,  incorporate your companies, and may the first to commence  operations get the plums ; but if the government is wise ho  monopolies will be granted, no one company will be favored  to the exclusion of the rest. The policy which the government should adopt in all cases of this kind, including, of  course, applications for permission to construct railroads  and telegraph lines, or for any other work affecting public  interests, is to unreservedly grant all applicants the necessary powers to carry out their plans if they are able, merely  stipulating that prior rights, if any, should belong to the  company first established and operating. The first grocer  who opens a store in a town does not expect that his fellow-  citizens will think so much of his enterprise as to boycott  any other grocer subsequently commencing business ; he  not only has no such sanguine expectations, but he realises  that the townspeople in question will doubtless welcome the  rival grocer with open arms.  sit.  '/&  sit.  '/if  '/if  A petition to the Hon. Col. Baker, minister of mines, is  being circulated by a number of mine-owners on Christina  lake, says the Rossland Miner, asking that all territory  east of Christina lake be included in the Trail creek mining  division and that the records of any claims in that section  now recorded at Midway be transferred to the office at  Rossland. The change is asked for on the grounds that  Rossland is 20 miles nearer Christina lake than Midway,  because most of the mine-owners in that section live inRoss-  land and because nearly all sales of mining property in that  section are negotiated there. ��  Sit.  He.  ->if      'M  '/if  THE   JACK   OF   SFADES.  The dispute with regard to the lease on the Jack of  Spades has been amicably settled, mainly through Mr.  A. K. Stuart's instrumentality, and preparations will now  be made for developing the property on an extensive scale.  Mons. Gire, the engineer sent out by the French syndicate  holding the lease, is most anxious to make a dividend from  the mine for his principals as soon as possible, and intends  to erect a smelter on the property directly he is fairly satisfied of the permance of the ore body. Meanwhile an Inger-  soll drill���-the first to be used in mining on Boundary Creek  ���an air compressor, a dynamo, a saw-mill, steel rails to  extend a distance of four miles for a tramway, cars and  other machinery have been ordered and will arrive in the  course of a few weeks. The syndicate own a group of  claims in Central camp, upon which more or less work has  been going on recently. It is the intention- now, however,  to centre operations on the Jack of Spades, and to determine the value or otherwise of the claim beyond question.  Four men have been put to work to run a tunnel in on the  ledge this week, and a good road is to be built to the claim.  Sit.     Sit.      Sit.  . '/If~     '/If"      llf"  MINING   NOTES.  Work is to be started on the Sunset, Deadwood camp.  Kight men are at work on the Joe Dandy at Fairview.  The claini is under bond to I^ord Sudley, who recently  visited the camp.  Mr. Dier is advertising for thirty miners to work on his  properties at Fairview. He already has twenty-five men  in his employment.  The shaft that is being sunk on the Old Ironsides is now  down 70 feet, all in solid ore. For the last ten feet or so  the contractor has found it difficult to keep the shaft free  from water, which has been pouring in rapidly.  s.j, ������zSL��iMn  THE   BOUNDARY   CREEK   TIMES,  THE ROCK CREEK COAL FIELDS.  Mr. Robt. Wood desires through The  Times to;state';-that the report anent  the ownership of the lease of the Rock  creek coal fields as published by the  Midway Advance last week was incorrect.    The true facts are as follows :  Mr. McConnell, who held the original  lease, suffered frojn ill-health   and  left  the country to live   in   San   Francisco,  employing an agent to take   charge  of  and see that the necessary annual work  required by law be  performed.    It  appears   that   the   lessee's    instructions  were never carried but, and Mr. W.   T.  Thompson thinking that the lease was  f annulled, re-staked the ground and applied in the regular way for   a  license  in the autumn of last year.    Mr. Wood  and others   also  staked  last   spring   a  number of claims in~the same vicinity.  The applications, however, were refused by the Government upon the  representation of Mr. Heinze that the lands  were within the area to be  granted  to  the Columbia & Western Railway Company as a land subsidy.    In due course  Mr. McConnell returned  from  California and his lease was restored  to  him  on his pleading sickness and   the'failure of the agent to   carry  out   his   directions as reasons for non-compliance  with   the   legal   regulations.    Messrs.  Wood and Thompson are now associated with Mr. McConnell being co-lessees  with him of   the   property.    With   regard to the   other  ground  staked  last  .spring, Mr. Heinze's claim will be disputed for the very good reason that the  applications were sent in   to  the   Government before the  proposed  route  of  the Columbia & Western had been surveyed.  Coal at Rock creek has been steadily  mined for the past three months, and  at the present time two shifts are at  work on the claim, and a local market  has been found for the product. According to the report of Messrs. Guess  Bros, analyses of samples taken from  a vein of clean coal 18 inches wide  yielded :��� Coke, 65.6 per cent., and ash,  only 6.2 per cent. When it is remembered that in Nova Scotia coal is used  giving an ash up to a maximum of 30  and 35 per cent., the superior quality  of the Rock creek coal becomes more  apparent. ���   '��� .  Ore was struck last week in the tunnel on the Clifton, Copper camp, at a  distance from the mouth of about 15  feet. The ore is quartz, impregnated  with copper pyrites.  TENDERS WANTED.

Great improvements havebeen made  to the interior of the  International hotel, Greenwood, and the house will now  compare very favorably with any other  of   the   same  size  in  the   district,   in  point of comfort and convenience.    All  , the rooms are large and  well lighted,  and the  bar-room  is  supplied  with  a  capital   billiard   table.   ,  Twelve   bed  rooms and a sitting room on  the  third  floor have  been  plastered  and  kalso-  '. milled-, and finished in natural  woods,  brilliantly, polished.      The . furniture  which arrived this week from Spokane  is of a very superior quality,  the  bedroom suites  being, particularly  handsome.    A layer of' cement between the  floors serves effectually to  deaden any  .sound from below.   The hotel is heated  throughout with hot air, and the  temperature  in  each  room  may  thus  be  regulated at will.    An excellent  view  is obtainable from the windows of the  sitting-room.   As has already been announced, the proprietors  of  the  hotel  are giving a dance on  Christmas lOve,  to celebrate the departure of the  army  of   workmen  who  have   infested   the  building for the past two months.  MINING NOTES.  Development work is to be commenced on the Texas, Providence  camp, after the 1st of January.  Twelve hundred pounds weight of  supplies and provisions were taken up  to the Adirondack, Kimberly camp, on  Monday, and $2,500 is to be spent in  development - work. The property is  bonded to Mr. W. T. Thompson.  The Silver Bow Mining- Company, of  Fairview, has been incorporated. Assays have been made by Mr. Guess, of  samples from a ledg-e of quartz on this  claim, the result not averaging 25c. in  gold to the ton. Further comment is  unnecessary.  A contract has been let to Frank  Chandler to erect cabins on the Dinero  Grande. Tenders are still called for  the sleig'h road, but the work will not  ' be undertaken until the arrival of Mr.  Iveslie Hill, the engineer, who is expected to arrive any day.  C. ~E(. Bartholomew broug-ht down on  Tuesday a magnificent specimen of  ore, literally specked and flaked with  free gold, from the Combination. The  specimen resembled closely the rich  ore that was exhibited some 'months  ago in Vancouver from the Golden  Cache claim in Iyillooet, and which  catised such intense excitement at the  time. Fxtra help was engaged this  week to work on the Combination.  A special to the Nelson Tribune says:  The corporation of Vancouver has been  notified that the Great Northern Company has bought out the Northern Pacific under foreclosure, consequently  the contract between the Northern Pacific and projected Burrard Inlet and  Fraser Valley road is off. The promoters of the Victoria, Vancouver & Eastern railroad to Kootenay from the  coast, in Vancouver, are jubilant over  the belief that all serious opposition to  their road is now at an end, as the Burrard Inlet and Fraser Valley road  blocked legislation for a road from  Kootenay to the coast.

Ford has removed to Anaconda  leasing- his barber-shop and bathrooms  to G. A. McKag-ue.  Mr. W. A. Corbett left this  week  to.  spend the  holidays  with  relatives   at  Deerpark, Washington.  The transfers of licenses for three of  the Greenwood hotels were granted at  the licensing court on Tuesday.  Mrs. I. A. Dinsmore left yesterday  for Grand Forks, where Const. Dins-  more is now permanently stationed.  An enjoyable evening was spent at  the Pioneer Hotel on Saturday last, the  occasion being a party given by the  housekeeper, Mrs. Pennewell, and her  assistant staff.  Mr. Frank Wood is making arrangements to open a soda-water factory in  ���town and is corresponding with a Milwaukee firm of manufacturers with regard to purchasing the necessary plant.  Mr. J. K. Johnson, of the Grand  Forks Miner, leaves to-day to spend  " Christmas at his home in Vernon. "His  sister will return with him in January  to assume charge of the public school  at Grand Forks.  Mr. F. R. M. JOlkins, provincial constable, last stationed at Revelstoke,  has been transferred to Boundary  creek, with headquarters at Greenwood. Mr. Hilkins served for five years  in the North-West mounted police.  A very pleasant farewell party was  given at Midway last evening by Miss  McAuley and Mrs. IvUiidy, to afford  the many friends of Miss Ida Birnie an  opportunity of wishing her good-bye,  or what is more pleasing, " au revoir."  The adjourned meeting for the purpose of considering Oddfellowship in  Greenwood will be held in the school-  . house to-night, 19th inst., at 8 o'clock.  As information from the Grand I+odge  has now been received, a full attendance is requested.  Mr. and Mrs. Birnie, of Anaconda,  Miss Ida Birnie (who has been visiting  in the district for the past two months),  Mrs. W. J. Harber, of Greenwood, and  Reg. Driscoll, of Carson, form a party  who leave to-morrow by private conveyance, to celebrate Christinas at  Vernon. ,  Mr. Fred. Graaf, who has just completed a large and substantial building  to be used as a hotel, with the necessary stabling, barns, etc., at Greenwood camp, was granted his license on  Tuesday and will throw open the doors  of the Brooklyn Hotel on New Year's  Day. He purposes giving a ball in  about a month, to which all are invited  from far and near.  The write-up of Camp McKinney recently published in this paper and subsequently copied entire by several of  the provincial papers, is destined to a  wide notoriety. Mr. Ainsley Megraw  writes that the article will be published, with illustrations, in the special  Mining Edition of the Toronto Saturday Globe, of which about half-a-mil-  lion copies will be distributed.  Mr. Ezra Meeker, the Puyallup hop  king, who spent several days in Greenwood last month, has a very complimentary article descriptive of the  Boundary Creek country in the Taco-  ma Ledger.  Mrs. Murray, of Midway, met with  rather a serious accident on Tuesday.  Ascending a hill on the road home from  Greenwood, she was met by a team  driven in a somewhat reckless fashion.  The two vehicles collided and Mrs.  Murray was thrown heavily to the  ground, sustaining serious injury.  For the past few weeks the demand  for lots in Greenwood has been very  lively and prices have been raised.  On Government and Copper streets  only a limited number of lots are now  offered for sale. Enquiries are received, by every mail from business men  and others regarding the prospects before the country, and correspondence  invariably leads to. investments being  made in town property.  Travel over the Penticton road is  anything but a pleasure at best, and at  present positive danger is added to discomfort. From Greenwood to McKinney there is good sleighing ; thence on  to Penticton the road is alternately  bare, with a coating of glassy ice, or  unfathomable inud. This week two  heavily laden teams were unable to retain a foothold on a narrow grade and  both went over the bank ; minor accidents and losses are so common as to  pass unmentioned.

This old rhyme, Mr. Editor, I quote to  illustrate the magnitude of the capital  at the back of a company composed of  myself and several other influential  schemers who intend to apply to the  provincial legislature for certain privileges. Were I to express in the ordinary manner the vast sums at our command, your office would be severely  taxed to furnish' the necessary figures,  the very ordinary mind of your aver-  ��� ag*e reader would not be able to grasp  the immensity of the amount involved ;  and further, the usual mode would oc-  cupy too much of your valuable space  and leave but little room for th.% enumeration of the undertaking's which the  company is prepared to attack.  It would be as well to put the scheme  in the form of an ad., and so comply  with g-overnment regulations. I fely  implicitly on you as an honorable  newspaper man, to accept as remuneration ten billion shares of the company's inaccessible stock. " "  NOTICE.

Ray Murray,  Solicitor for Applicants.  Camp McKinney, 10th Dec. 1896.  In consideration  of   this   "ad."   Mr.  Editor and for the  further  patronag-e,  provided for in the body of  this  application, and in consideration of your being- admitted on the ground floor I shall  expect your earnest and energetic support of the scheme.   I may say it is not  the bona fide intention of the company  to disfigure the  country  with  all  the  electric paraphernalia already cited but  in reality to prevent   inartistic   cranks  from constructing- new-fang-led notions  detracting from the beauties of nature  without first consulting-us.    The  public thus ,. have  a  g-uarantee  that  their  designs will be of a nature pleasing-  to  the most artistic taste.    With this   end  in view we   solemnly bind ourselves to  erect and   operate   the   Electric   Toll-  g-ates, which institutions have   always  been considered hig-hly   ornamental   to  any landscape.    Yours faithfully,  Ray Murray.

[We are in no wajr responsible for the opinions  of our correspondents.]  To the Editor, Boundary Creek Times :  Sir,���I notice in the several local  papers a number of notices of application to the leg-islative assembly for  powers which considerably affect this  portion of the country,���powers which,  so far as I can make out, are briefly as  follows :  To divert and use all the water,  whether already granted or not, in  Kettle river and every creek tributary  thereto (they also apply for, the same  powers on the Kootenay and Okanagan  -���. rivers) ;  To have power to take for (presumably) any purpose air the land they  want, and apparently without any further formalities;  To have full powers of a mining-company ; ;    ';.': ' \- ���'';' ."' ,'o .  To have full powers of tramway and  telephone companies for any distances;  To supply electricity for motive power, lig-hting, heating- and every purpose known to the electrical engineer  for all towns, municipalities, works of ,  all kinds and other purposes in the districts of West Kootenay and Yale, and  for sundry other purposes too numerous to mention.  I would sugg-est to the promoters of  the two concerns to operate in "West  Kootenay and Yale that they are too  modest and should in justice to themselves apply for a free ''.gift from the  Provincial House of the districts in  which they wish to operate, with exemption from taxation for five years.  This would of course ensure them what  water privileges they require.  To those applying- simply for water  rights in Boundary creek and its tributaries, I must respectfully bring- to  mind the fact that there are existing  privileges on most if not all of the  creeks for which they apply, and I  should like to ask them what they intend doing- with the holders of the existing-water fig-hts.  The company to operate at Cascade  Falls "want but little here below," as  they only apply for 150,000 inches of  water to be taken from Kettle river. I  cannot for the life of me see why they  didn't apply for all the water in the  river. After utilizing- 150,000 inches  they may need what is left, and that  means another costly application to  the House.  Surely we are capable of getting  some works erected in our midst without all these outside companies coming-  in and taking up everything not granted already. T^et us see how the passing of these bills will affect us on  Boundary creek : The water in Boundary creek and its tributaries will be  in the hands of a company, or companies acting in concert (capital of company or compaies unknown), who may  possibly erect works or who may hold  the water for an indefinite period���  which under their special Act they  could do���and wait for some other  party to buy them out. Whilst they  have a record of the water, no one can  use it, and unless they are a working-  company it mig-ht keep back very ne-  cessar3r works and retard very considerably the country's progress.  It appears to me that a strong petition should be g-ot up against the passing of these bills as they stand. If  they must be passed, at any rate limit  them to six months in which to erect  works and utilise the water ; in default  of which, like the ordinary free miner  applying- for water privileg-es, they  lose their rights.���Yours truly,  A Kettle River Kicker.

George Rankin is building- a blacksmith shop at Anaconda. He is by  repute a very skilful mechanic.  At the Anaconda Commercial Club  on Wednesday evening-, the president  stated that arrang-ements had been  completed for the hiring- of an orchestra  for the evening-'of the dance to be given  by the Club on the 31st inst. Mr.Law-  der offered to g-ive the Club the use of  his pool table until May next, provided  it was re-clothed at the expense of the  members. A committee was appointed to confer with Mr. Eawder upon the  matter and find out the probable cost  of the work he sug-g-ested. Mr. J. P.  McEeod was admitted to membership.  On motion of Mr. Miller, Mr. Hind and  Mr. Eamb were appointed a committee  to urg-e upon all eligible voters, in the .  district whose names do not now appear  on the voters' list to register without  further delay. This concluded the  business of the evening-.  Before His Honor Judge Hardy, Martin Wilson was tried on a charge of  wilful and malicious disobedience , to  the commands of the President of the  Anaconda Commercial Club. Mr. Hind  conducted the prosecution and Mr. Miller defended. Ever3r witness examined  swore audibly that the accused was no  better than he should be, and notwithstanding- the powerful speech by the  prisoner's counsel the jury broug-ht in  a verdict of g-uilty. The court sentenced the prisoner to act for four weeks  as janitor to the Club.  On returning to his pre-emption on  Christina lake after a short absence  Mr. R. Sadler found that the cabin had  been burglariously entered and his  entire outfit, of tools and cooking- utensils stolen.  Mr. Frank McGowen, revising officer, Vernon, and Mr. C. A. R. Eambly,  g-overnment agent, Osoyoos, held a  court of revision and appeal at Green-  woood yesterday. No cases of any importance came up. Mr. McGowen's  experience on the trip would form interesting reading-, but space forbids.  The Greenwood school " broke-up "  for the holidays on Friday, after the  examinations had been held; in the  morning. The children aquitted themselves remarkably well, and the trustees were evidently w(ell satisfied with  the progress that has been made. Miss  Thornber, the teacher, must be congratulated upon the success that has  attended her methods.  A   CARD.  In sending- Invitations to friends in the town  and vicinity, I find it hard to g-et the names  and addresses of all, and for that reason some  may be omitted. I therefore take this oppor7  tunity of inviting-all from this and adjoining-  towns and vicinity to come and assist in making-  merry the Christmas ball g-iven by the International on Xmas Eve.
