HE} Clondyke fever has abated. Those who  contracted the epidemic and who rushed tx>  wards the frozen north heedless of the consequences, have had time for reflection at  Dyea and consequently many of them1 have  sold their outfits and returned home. Instead of losing-their senses because of the  stories circulated regarding the fabulous  wealth of the Yukon, they should have taken  a conservative view of the situation. If they had stopped  and thought of the gold and copper resources of Boundary  Creek, with the downfall of silver which will probably close  down most of the lead and silver mines of the Coeur d'Alene  and a great many in Slocan and also in Montana, Utah and  Colorado ; if they had turned their attention to the great  gold-copper belt of Boundary Creek instead of rushing^ after  the chimerical richness of an inhospitable reg*ion, the future  would prove that they had made a wise choice.  If they are doubtful of the quantity and the quality of the  ores of this district, to be convinced they need only look at  Deadwood camp, with its Mother Iyode having a tunnel 247  feet in length and cross-cutting- 107 feet of ore, and having  a winze nearly 80 feet deep, the bre running- from $5 to $80  to the ton ; the Sunset, with a tunnel 250 feet, all in." ore,  working- nig-ht and day and giving- every indication of being-  one of the biggest copper-g-old properties to be found anywhere ; the Great Hopes, 30, 40 arid 50 feet wide, with free  g-old on top, running- from $1 to $50 in g-old averag-ing- $20 in  free g-old to the ton ; the Butte City, Greyhound, ..Gem.,  Morrison and many other claims which development work  will prove equally good.  If our argonauts are not yet convinced, they should visit  Copper camp, just west of and adjoining- Deadwood. It is  safe to say that development work will prove this to be the  best copper camp in America. The veins are from 18 to 108  feet wide, with bromide and copper glance carrying- g-old  and silver and running- from 3 to 50 per cent, copper.  L,et them then g-o to I^ong Iyake and they will find the  Jewel running-day and night. It and other mines have  high grade g-old and silver ores, with a little copper. The  mines of Pass creek are immense veins of iron, copper and  g-old; and Summit camp, with its famous B.C. mine, has  its veins of gold, copper and iron running from $5 to $100 to  the ton and from 5 to 50 feet.wide ; it has shafts from 10 to  100 feet deep and the ore growing- richer as depth is attained.  Then there is Greenwood camp, with its Monarch, Brooklyn, Ironsides, Knob Hill, Stemwinder, Snowshoe, Rawhide  and many other claims, with veins of gold and copper from  20 to 75 feet wide. Development work in the shape of tunnels, shafts and cross-cuts, has proven this to be a camp of  pay mines. To the south of Greenwood is Wellington camp  with its wonderful Golden Crown, its famous Winnipeg, the  Calumet, the Jim, and other valuable claims. The Golden  Crown is being worked night and day and the ore of* the  camp is similar to Greenwood but of a higher grade.  Nor should Skylark camp be omitted. Here may be found  ores carrying lead, silver and gold that run from $20 to $100  to the ton. Development work has proved this to be also a  camp of great promise. Then there is Central camp, with  its many valuable properties, including the No. 7 with ore  that gets richer as depth is attained and yields as high as  $800 to the ton.  Why should the gold-seeker attempt to reach the Yukon ?  Here is wealth that runs down deep into the bowels of the  earth and centuries will not dig it out. The history of  placer mining  in   California, Nevada,   Montana,   Arizona,  Utah and British Columbia has proven that it can give only  a temporary season of harvesting ; but who, has heard of a  real copper and gold mine that did not respond to the miner's steel for years : yes, centuries. The low price of silver  should induce capital to turn its attention to gold and copper propositions. Instead of getting excited over the placer  diggings of the Yukon, the people should insist on getting  a railway to the more permanent ore bodies ofl Boundary  Creek. Give us transportation from any quarter and this  district will produce more wealth in two years than can be  found in the frozen ground of the Clondyke.  ���Me.  '/if  MUNICIPAL GOVERNMENT.  It is hoped that the residents of Greenwood have sufficient  appreciation of the importance of haying an efficient administration of civic affairs, to see that the very best municipal  material is placed in nomination to-day. It is an easy matter to be indifferent about, municipal affairs. In a small city  like Greenwood, people are apt to come to the conclusion  that municipal government is of but little importance and  that any one is good enough for alderman. A graver mistake was never made. The acts of the first municipal council may hamper the g-rowth of the city and when Greenwood  has 10,000 or 15,000 inhabitants, which will be before the  tenth anniversary of its birth is celebrated, its inhabitants  may probably indulge in the unprofitable pastime of execrating the first city fathers. We have sufficient confidence in the business ability and integrity of those who are  likely to be placed in nomination to-day to have .but���lit-.  tie fear as to the future, but to secure the highest factor of  safety in municipal government the electors should insist  on the best men having control of municipal affairs.  The all important matter of municipal government is a  right beginning. Glasgow to-day, is a city where a tax collector is a curiosity ; where water works, electric light, gas  works, tramways and kindred enterprises that are generally  in the hands of private corporations, are controlled by the  city and return sufficient revenue to make real estate  taxation unnecessary. It is useless to single out any other  city to institute a comparison. There are hundreds of them;  and several in this province where revenue producing institutions are in the hands of private individuals without any  restrictions whatever, and the people are harassed by excessive taxation in order to keep their cities out of the hands  of the sheriff.  . The Aldermen should take sufficient pride in civic administration to make Greenwood, if possible, a provincial Glasgow. We want a progressive council but not an extravagant one. Heavy expenditures of mone}r are endurable if  the money will go for permanent improvements that will  render the city more attractive and bring in people to increase its prosperity, or make it a healthier place to live in.  An equi table system of taxation should be adopted. L,et  the council keep clear of the error commonly made of imposing heavy licenses on business-because it is a convenient  way of raising money. The man who invests his money in  Greenwood, who resides here and who grows up with the  town, does far more than the non-resident who buys a lot  and allows it to remain idle, depending upon the enterprise  of others to make his property valuable. Taxation should  be directed as far as possible to real estate.  No time should be lost in securing for Greenwood a good  system of waterworks. While the Times is in favor of  cities deriving the benefit of waterworks systems, financial  difficulties may arise which will prevent the city council  constructing a waterworks system. In that event a restricted franchise should be granted to the Greenwood Waterworks Co., by which, should the city desire to purchase in  the future they will be reimbursed for their outlay.  There are many important matters that will require the  careful consideration of the new council and we again express the hope that the very best men will be chosen.  :;-,i  ..t  :/    i'*  IF^*".  i". :i��  'k-'S.':. DISTRICT NEWS.  A. B. Hart, the contractor, has  returned to Grand Forks where he  erected a large hotel.  Mr. A. Lennon a mining expert representing a Butte syndicate, is visiting  properties in the district.  The letters patent for the, city of  Greenwood are published in the current issue of the B.'C. Gazette.  Thos. Wake, the proprietor of the  Boundary Falls hotel, is building an  addition to his popular  establishment.  Mr. Bash, of the Victoria mine, Camp  McKinney, is about to ship two tons of  ore by way of Penticton; to the Kverett  smelter.  Mrs. Ivawder, wife of Police officer  I^awder, arrived from England, on  Tuesday last to reside permanently at  Greenwood.  E. C^ Brown and J. P. Harlan have  returned from a three months' prospecting trip. They went as, far north  as Sicamous.  Special   Customs ,  officer    Stunden,  who   visited    Greenwood   about     two  weeks ago, has seized sawmill machinery  in   Rossland for   non-payment of  .duty.  Much to the disappointment, of the  Midway team, the Greenwood cricketers failed to appear at Midway on Friday week. Consequently the match was  postponed.  The executive of the Volunteer Fire  Company held a meeting on Monday  evening when the committee in charge  reported that the ladders had been  completed and the bell secured.  Mr. B. E. Munns who has bonded the  Anaconda Group for an English Syndicate arrived in Greenwood on Wednesday. He will await instructions  from England before beginning active  work.  Mr. and Mrs. Holbrook, Mr. and Mrs. c  Comstpck, and Mrs. Simmons returned  on Tuesday night from a week's fruit  hunting trip to the Okanagan district.  They returned loaded with luscious  fruit of different varieties.  S3rdney M. Johnson, civil engineer  and provincial land surveyor, has decided to remain in Boundary Creek and  has opened an office at Anaconda. Mr.  Johnson has been until recently located at Trail where he established a reputation for accurate surveys.  Iv. F."Burr and J. J. Baker are com-  -oletine- the second assessment on the  I^ast Chance mine in Deadwood camp.  The}^ are running an open cut into the  hill and are working in a seam of ore  carrying copper. The East Chance  is near the Great Hopes.  An employment bureau has been  opened at the International hotel, to  accommodate those who are seeking-  employment or employees. No fee will  be charg*ed to either party and the reg--  ister will be found convenient to those  wishing to hire men as well as to the  men themselves.  Mr. A. E- McEwen who bonded the  B. C. mine in Summit camp in behalf  of the Mines Selection Co., of Eondon,  England, has several men at work on  the propert3r. The ore is increasing in  richness and experienced -mining men  who have visited the property claim  that the showing- is a most remarkable  one.  Allan Cameron, district freight  agent, and R. Kerr, general traffic  manager for the C. P. R., visited Penticton last week. This was Mr. Cameron 's second visit to Penticton within  the month and it is reported that on  account of the visit Mr. Scadding, the  agent there, will be removed and a  3'ounger and more experienced railway  man substituted.

Mayne Daly, the president  of the Brandon & Golden Crown Company, is one of the best pleased men in  the province. He visited Greenwood  last winter when the snow was on the  ground arid was then satisfied with  what he had seen of the Golden Grown  but he arrived in Greenwood on Wednesday, spent all day Thursday on the  property and now he is more than  pleased ; he is simply, delighted. While  he has been kept well posted on the  work that was being- done, he never  fully appreciated the'^yalue of his company's property until he examined for  himself., He is not only satisfied with  the mine, with the quality of the ore  but also with the systematic -way in  which development work is being-  done.  Speaking of the district generally,'  Mr. Daty expressed his astonishment  at the rapid growth of Greenwood since  his last visit. He also felt sure that a  short time wonld convince every mining man that Boundary Creek is to be  one of the biggest mining districts in  British Columbia. The district has a  brisrht future before because it is con-  ������tig-nous to a rich farming country and  the trade of one will help the other.  The Brandon & Golden Crown Co.,  will keep at work developing the property, so that they will be in position to  ship when the railway comes. Mr,  Daly believed the first railway into  Boundary Creek will be built by either  Heinze or the C. P. R. from Robson.  Mr. Daly "was accompanied by Mr.  W. A. Fuller of Spokane who was last  fall associated with Mr. . Collins in  Boundary Creek district.  A New C. P. R. Folder.  The Canada Pacific Railway Company is evidently preparing to build  into Boundary Creek district and being  of an economical turn of mind have  issued a folder with the C. P. R. line  running from Penticton, to Midway,  Greenwood, Grand Forks, Christina  X,ake and Robson. Whether the company intends to build the road before  another folder is issued or whether the  marked line is an error, or was put  there purposely to deceive the public  cannot be determined.    The folder is a  very neat one, however, and its reading matter gives considerable prominence to Boundary Creek.  Rock Creek Townsite.  The government are advertising an  auction sale of lots in the Rock Creek  townsite. The townsite is one of the  prettiest and, best situated in the district and the lots should command a  good figure. Plans of the, townsite  ma)r be seen at Greenwood, Midway,  Osovoos, Grand Forks and Vernon. ,  The Susie Bonded.  Mr. Georcre A. Guess has bonded,the  Susie mine in Fairview camp to Messrs.  A. H. Harrison and Berchard of Greenwood. The bond called for active and  continuous work and is for a period of  six months, the sum stipulated being  $10,000 for a nine-tenth interest. The  Susie is a free milling- proposition yvith  a true tissue vein.  The Liberal Meeting.  The adjourned meeting- of the Liberals desirous of forming an association  will be held at Greenwood, on Monday  evening next, at 8.o'clock. Delegates  from the district as far north as Camp  McKinne3r have signified their intention of being- present. It is hoped that  all those who are in sympathy with the  Liberal party will make it a point to be  present on Monday night. The Greenwood Liberals should at least turn out  in full force.

Brown, the Executive Officer of the  ' Canadlair^TP'acifi'c'��� Railway  Company,   returned   to   the   coast on  Tuesday,after g-oing- down    as   far   as  Grand Forks.    During- his visit to   the  district, he listened   to   numerous complaints ag-ainst the treatment received  by business men at the hands of the C.  P.   R.    From   every   quarter   he was  plainly told that  if his company   were  desirous of securing- the growing- trade  of Boundary Creek they  must  build a  railway   here.    Mr.   Brown,   however,  has the happy faculty of smoothing-out  difficulties, and while his visit may not  induce the traffic to be directed toward  the C. P. R., the people have at least a  kindlier feeling- toward   the  line.    Mr.  Brown while not being- in a position to  speak authoritively promised that more  attention would be paid to the requirements of   this  district,   that   arrang-e-  ments would be made by which   better  facilities for, handling- freig-ht would be  provided at Penticton.    He   also g-ave  the   gratifying-   information   that   the  officials of the company were fully impressed   with   the   importance   of the  Boundary   Creek   trade   and that they  would use every  effort   to   secure   the  same., ���������' ���  We would like to draw/ Mr. Brown's  attention to the excessive freig-ht  charg-es on the steamer Aberdeen, on  express and small freig-ht packag-es.  The charg-e on the Aberdeen for a trip  of 70 miles is g-enerally': double that  charged by the stag-e for a distance of  85 miles.  Government Buildings.  During- his visit here Mr. T/eoiiard  Norris, g-overnment ag-ent, awarded  the contracts for erecting- the jail and  court house at Greenwood, and the Recorder's office at Grand Forks. The  successful tenderer was J. B. Derosier  of Greenwood, whose tender was the  lowest for both building-s.  The .tenders received by Mr Norris  were as follows :  Greenwood jail and court house, J.  B. Derosier, $869.00 ; E). A. Wiedmark,  $1,150.00. Recorder's office, Grand  Forks, J. B. Derosier, $1,097 ; Cooper  Bros., $1,393; A. B. Hart, $2,000.'  Mr. Derosier will commence building- operations at once. His price for  the Greenwood building- is above the  appropriation which was $700, but for  Grand Forks Recorder's office his price  is below, the appropriation being-  $1,500.  MINERAL   EXHIBIT.  The   manag-ement, of   the    Spokane  Fruit Fair which opens Tuesday, October 5th, and closes Saturday,    October  16th,  has   decided to   include   a   mineral exhibit.    Good results were derived   from the   mineral   exhibit   of  last  year and an effort  should   be   made to  have   a   still   better exhibit this   year.  Last year Mr. J. C. Haas had charg-e of  the exhibit from Boundary'-   Creek   and  his intimate knowledg-e of the resources  of the   district   well   fitted   him for the  work.    Mr. Haas is at present   out   of  town but we believe he.could be induced to undertake the work  of preparing-  an exhibit that would do   credit   to the  district.    If     not,     then   all    exhibits  should be sent direct   to   L.   K.    Armstrong-, superintendent   of the Mineral  Department,   Spokane   Fruit Fair, not  later than September 15.

XT41 M-l \JI t  HALLETT-HALL.  The legal business which took Mr. I.  H. Hallett to Vernon last week was not  connected with his reg-ular practice.  In fact it was a case in which he was  one of the contracting- parties, the  other being-Miss Nellie Hall of Vancouver. Mr. Hallett secured the services not of a lawyer but a clergyman,  to wit, the Rev. T. W. Outerbridge of  the episcopal church, Vernon. Mr.  Outerbridg-e not being- a lawyer was  ignorant of the advantag-es of delays  in leg-al matters, so he carried out his  part of the contract with despatch and  Mr.0 Hallett and Miss Hall were made  man and wife. The happy event took  place at Vernon on Wednesday, the  11th inst., and Mr. and Mrs. Hallett  arrived in Greenwood on Sunday and  received the congratulations of the  many friends Mr. Hallett made during  his residence here, as well as of those  who knew the bride in Vancouver.  CHIEF COMMISSIONER.  Hon. George B. Martin, Chief Commissioner of Eands and "Works, and  Eeonard Norris, Government Agent,  reached Greenwood on Tuesday evening-last. They drove in from Penticton and visited Fairview, Camp Mc-  Kinnejr, Osoyoos, Midway and other  places. Mr. Martin was greatly  pleased with the mines of Fairview and  McKiriney, but what struck him most  was the substantial appearance of  Greenwood. In company with Mr.  Norris he went over the townsite, inspected the site for the jail and court  house, the hospital and other places in  the city. Hon. Mr. Martin left for  Grand Forks on Thursday.  A FAKE INTERVIEW.  The Grand Forks   Miner  has  a penchant  for  interviewing-   every person  that visits the   city.    No   one   escapes  the indefatigable reporter of the Miner.  The unsophisticated visitor may think  he does because he has neither seen nor  heard of a newspaper   man   but   if he  reads the next week's issue of the Miner he will find that   the   ubiquitous reporter   has   secured   him as a victim.  The habit of writing- an interview without the person interviewed is g-enerally  a harmless one   for   it  helps   to fill up  and the Miner has plenty of space.    It  was scarcely fair, however,   to  make-a  victim of School  Inspector Burns.    In  the   latest   issue   of   the   Miner  that  gentleman expressed very decided opinions on the future of Grand Forks, the  railwa3r situation and the political outlook.    Now we know Mr. Burns personal^, and are therefore safe   in stating-  that   he   never   gave   utterance to the  opinions published  in  the Miner.    Pie  is a public servant, minds his own business, and has   sense enoug-h   to   keep  his mouth shut when political questions  are     being-     discussed.    The      Miner  should not thoughtless^' place   an   ein-  ploy.ee of the government in an embarrassing-position.    The Hon. George B.  Martin will   be  down there   this week  and as he is a politician   and   a   public  man, the Miner   can   interview   him to  its heart's content.  Providence Camp.  In the article which appears on the  first page Providence Camp was overlooked. Having- such properties as  those owned bj- the Boundary Creek  Mining- & Milling* Company and the  Anaconda Group, this camp will prove  the   equal of ai-13- other in the district.

THE NEW COUNCIL.  In all probability those nominated  for municipal honors to-day will be  elected by acclamation. At first many  candidates were sug-g-ested but now the  matter has narrowed down to Mr. Robert Wood for mayor and six well known  business men for aldermen. f; The personnel of the first council as far as can  be ascertained will be as follows :  Mayor���Robert Wood; Aldermen-  John Hamill, Thos. Gulley, A. McKen-  zie, M. J. Phelan, C. S. Galloway and  G, A. Rendell Such a council insures  a g-ood business administration for  Greenwood during- the next four  months.  Since   the   above   was   written   Mr.  Barrett   has returned   from   a trip   to'  Fire Valle3r and we understand that he  has consented to allow his name  to   be '  placed in nomination for alderman.  GREENWOOD NEWS AND GOSSIP.  i citing-  Sj'dney M. Johnson P. Ju. S., is n'eg-.o-'  for    the      purchase   of    Sam  Strong-'s property in White's Camp.  J��i. Harris, of Vernon, is putting- up a  building on the new townsite at Fair-  view for the Cosens Brothers, who will  open a g-eneral merchandise store at  that point.  J. C. Campbell,   of   Campbell  Bros.,  , furniture   dealers,   Vernon   and   Rossland,   was   in   Greenwood   this   week,  looking up  some   mining-  property   in  which he is interested.  H. N. Simmons, representing an  Fnglish Syndicate, is examining- the  different properties of Boundary Creek.  Mr. Simmoxis has been all thrbug-h  Kootenaj'- and will spend a week in this  district. .  Mr. John Hamill, J. P., has been  appointed superintendent of construction for the Greenwood jail and courthouse. The lots selected for the new  building- are those adjoining- Mr. Lewder's residence on Iyong- IVake street.  Robert Wood and C. S. Galloway  returned on Thursda}'- from a prospecting- trip to the main Kettle river.  They intended to remain away a month  but their return was hastened by the  approaching- municip.il election.  W. B. Aris, president of the Spokane  & British . Columbia Telephone and  Telegraph Company, has stated that  he will have a telephone line into Fu-  reka within 60 days. It is the intention of the company to continue the  line to Greenwood and Midway.  The latest political rumor���one of  the many which have been circulated  during- the past few weeks���is to the  effect that the district of Fast Yale is  to be subdivided and that John Andrew  Mara, FxrM. P., will be the government candidate in the southern portion  while F. S. Barnard^ Fx-M.P., a  brother-in-law of Mara's, will be the  g-bvernment candidate in the northern  district.  Numerous complaints have been  made reg-arding- the frail up to the  many claims on the West Fork. The  worst place is from Conkle's ranch to  the crossing- 15 miles above: As there  are numerous prospectors in the district, this trail should be improved at  once.  Messrs. G. A. and Charles Rendell  returned on Monday from a ten days'  prospecting trip to the main Kettle  river. They went in by the trail from  Boundary creek which they found very  passable for horses and which is much  shorter than the circuitoas route by  the way of,Rock creek. Messrs. Rendell have some promising- looking-  , claims on the main Kettle river ; they  contain  hig-h assays.  F. P. Rathbone, of London, and W'  M. Hamilton Merritt, Toronto, visited  the mining- camps in the vicinity of  Greenwood this week. Both gentlemen are well known mining men who  have spent considerable time examining properties in the province. In the  early part of the summer they visited  Cariboo and I/illooet. Arthur Mil-  throp who was acting as g-uide will  accompany tn'em to Vernon.  Residents of Boundary Creek are  thinking- seriously of going- to Clondyke ; not to hunt for g-old���they have  plenty of that at home���but to escape  the heat. They would like to get as  near the north pole as possible and  thawing- frozen ground, would be a de-  lig-htftil relief. Midway school was  closed for three or four days on account  of the excessive heat. The proprietor  of the Gfreenwood brewery is the. most,  popular man in the city at present.  large  ore  bodies  which  g-ive  Cameron & McKenzie have a stock  of hats, caps and clothing- on their  hands that must be disposed of by the  25th, inst, reg-ardless of cost.

Mr. Martin  met the businessmen of Anaconda and  discussed road improvements with  them. Thev asked that the govern-  merit assist towards imiDroving- the  grade on the road leading from Ana-  aconda to Grand Forks. The intention is to build the road up Ivind Creek  thus avoiding the steep grade. Hon.  Mr. Martin promised to endeavor to  secure $500 for this purpose. He was  also asked for assistance towards extending the road from Scott McRae's  towards the Mother Ivode. The'minister promised $100 for the purpose, the  mine owners in the vicinity to contribute the balance.  SUPPLEMENTARY   NOTICE.  By Supplementary Letters Patent A. S.

Mr.  Martin, Chief Commissioner of L/arids  and Works, was seen by a Times representative and he cheerfully consented to give his impression of the district. He was naturally surprised to  see such a thriving- town as Greenwood. It surpassed his expectations  in everyway arid he predicted for it a  great future as well as for the mining-  district surrounding it.  In speaking of local needs, the Chief  Commissioner stated that after consultation with several of the business  men he was fully impressed with the  necessity for a good Wagon road from  Greenwood to Summit camp ; that he  would bring- the matter before his colleagues and that he would strongly advocate giving the necessary money to  build the road.  Hon. Mr. Martin had discussed  school matters with the board of trustees and he was informed that the  building- at present used for school purposes belonged to Mr. Wood and that  heretofore it had been given rent free.  Only $800 was voted last session for  the erection of a school at Greenwood,  and taking into consideration the cost  ; of material here, that sum was inadequate to erect a building suitable for  the number of children; in Greenwood  at the present time without considering-  the probable large increase. The trustees asked that the department pay a  low rent for use of present school  building- ; that $250 be taken from the  appropriation to buy proper school  furniture and that the balance of the  appropriation be supplemented by  another vote next session, so that a  school building large enoug-h can be  built next summer. Mr. Martin considered that these requests were reasonable and he would urg-e upon his  colleagues to grant their requests.  The Chief Commissioner became enthusiastic when he discussed the Greenwood hospital. " You can't use words  too strong- " he said " to describe my  delight at seeing such an institution.  It is a credit to Greenwood, a credit to  Mr. Wood who erected it, and a credit  to Dr. Jakes who runs it. It is the  neatest, best kept institution of the  kind that I have seen in British Columbia. I am going to see if I cannot induce the government to give it more  substantial assistance. "  Hon. Mr. Martin would also be pleased to see an all British wagon road  from Kruger's to Sidley's but the expense of constructing would be very  great, and he was afraid nothing could  be done this year.  " Dont you think that Bast Yale  should be subdivided ? " was asked the  Chief Commissioner. He shook his  head and said, " that bring-s up the  question of redistribution, a very serious question and one that requires a  great deal of consideration. I can offer  you no opinion as to what will be  done. "  Hon. Mr. Martin as he was leaving-  stated that Greenwood was to be congratulated upon having- such an enterprising citizen as Mr. Robert Wood and  that he hoped the electors would pay  him the well deserved compliment of  returning- him mayor by acclamation.  Mr. Black is Returning Officer.  A telegram has been received from  Hon. D. M. lOberts, Attorney-General,  in which  he  states  that  Mr.   Robert  Wood cannot act as returning officer  and be nominated for mayor, To overcome the difficulty, supplementary letters patent have been issued appointing-A. S. Black, barrister, returning-  officer. This leaves Mr. Wood free to  be nominated and no doubt his election  will be unopposed.  Out of Politics.  Hon. T. Mayne Daly was seen by a  Times representative reg-arding the  rumor to the effect that he was about  to join the Turner government as  Chief Commissioner of' Lands and  Works. Mr. Daly gave the rumor an  unqualified denial.  "You may state" he said, " that I  have never been approached regarding  this matter. I never had a conversation with Mr. Turner <cn the subject  In fact I never had ten minutes conversation with premier Turner since I became a resident of this province. I  have at the present time no intention  of re-entering- politics. I have had  enoug-h experience in that line to satisfy me."

After reaching Vancouver Mr. W. I/.;  Hogg made such arrangements as enabled him to pay a hurried visit to  Greenwood. He rode in from Granite  Creek arriving here on Sunda3'- morning last. Mr. Hogg is well satisfied  with the work already accomplished on  0 .the Sunset and has given instructions  for the tunnel to be extended another  50 feet making 300 feet in all. Manager Macfarlane will also ^sink a shaft  on the property and other development  work will be carried on. So confident  is Mr. Hogg of the value of the Sunset  that he offered to pay cash for the  bond which is not due until August,  asking only a nominal discount but the  owners refused.  Other evidence of his confidence in  the, property is to be found in the fact  that he has bonded the C. O. D. from  R. Donegan. The C. O. D. adjoins the  Sunset on the north and it is presumed .  that the Sunset lead runs through it.  The fig-ure is a private one but it is  understood that it is a very substantial  one and a considerable cash payment  lias been made. Mr. Hogg will spend  at least $2,000 in developing the C. O.  D. during the year.  Reports have been sent out from  Boundary creek to the effect that the  Sunset had been bonded by the Anaconda Mining Company. This is not  so, as the bond is on behalf of Mr.  Hogg and another gentleman who is  associated with him. The Anaconda  Company have made overtures for the  purchase of the Sunset but as yet they  have no connection with the   property.  Mr. Hogg returned to Granite Creek  on Mondajr and from there goes to  Montreal. He will return to Boundary  Creek about September 20, when he  will remain for some time in the district.  List of Voters.  The list of voters which  will be used  in the a-pproaching municipal elections  is   assuming  respectable  proportions,  but there are yet many  whose   names  do   not   appear,   entitled   to   exercise  their franchise.    During- the next week  an effort should be made to   make   the  list   complete.     Any   British   subject  resident here for  three months preceding  August  28th,   is   qualified.      The  necessary declaration may be taken at  The Times office,  A.  S. Black's, I. H.  Hallett's, Bealey & Co.'s,  A.
