FF  A FLURRY IF STOCKS  A BIG DEMAND FOR MORRISON  Stocks  In  Other. Local   Companies   Eagerly  ;   Sought After���An Old  Claim  Purchased���  The Provincial Estimates���Fisher Addition  Placed on the Market.  , Local stocks have been eagerly  sought after during- the past week and  the brokers were scurrying- in every  direction buying- for ready customers.  The Morrison was first favorite. The  recent strike on this property forced  stock up several points. In the early  part of the week several thousand  shares were purchased at 13 cents and  sold at IS. Then as the strike became  known 15 was the lowest buying- price  and as hig-h as 17 was paid for this  stock. The' heavy shareholders have  secured all the floating- stock they  could pick up, so that the number of  shares how on the market are rather  limited.  Winnipeg-' stock is in a similar position. There is great demand for this  stock, but the greater portion of it is  held by a few who will not part with it  at any price. The few shares that are  on. the market are eagerly soug-ht after  and 26 cents was offered and refused  for a small block.  Golden Crown shares have gone up  to 30 cents. A few Old Ironsides are  on the local market at a little better  than $1.10.  There has been a good sa^e of Camp  McKinney    Gold    Mining-   company's  stock.     This   company   was  recently  organized by W. B. Paton  and others..  The treasury shares  have been selling-  freely at \'/�� cents.        '" ���������  :> The King- company's  stock is going-  Tip: '"Since   Mr." "Wallach  sold "100,000 '  shares in Montreal for 12 cents, more  attention has been g-iveri to the shares  of   this   company.   A   dispatch from  Montreal states that 50,000 shares were -  sold there for 25.   The company intend  putting- up the shares  to 50 cents in a  short time.    There is but  little of this  stock held locally and  the  holders do  not care to sell.  THE   ESTIMATES.  A Sweeping Reduction in Dearly Every Department.  The only information to hand about  the estimates is that contained in a  telegram from Victoria, which gives  no particulars regarding- any special  appropriations for this district. It is  learned from a private source that an  addition has been made to the vote for  the Greenwood public school. For the  ynancial year ending June 30, 1900,  the receipts are estimated at$l,549,989,  and the expenditures at 51,764,873.  There are many radical chang-es in  the details of expenditure. The grants  to hospitals, estimated at $40,000, are to  be on a  basis  of $500  to  each  and 50  G'  cents per diem for actual treatment of  every patient. The only grants to  resident physicians provided are : Ash-  croft $300, Nicola S400, lower part of  Cariboo S500, 150 Mile House $300,  Salt Spring- Island $200, and West  Coast   $500.

THE   FISHER   ADDITION.  Mr. Chas. E. Mallette Selling Valuable Lots in  This Portion of the Town.  Mr. Chas. E. Mallette, one of the  shrewdest and most successful business men in the palmj- days of Victoria, has seevred the agency for the  lots in the Fisher addition. He has  placed fifty on the market, which will  be sold on easy terms. Mr.'Malette's  office is at present at the sawmill, but  he intends to open an office in the cit.v  in a few days and carry on ,a' general  real estate business. Any one desiring- to invest in the very best city  property should consult Mr. Mallette  at the sawmill office. '  TWO   ROSSLAND   VISITORS.  Dr. Bowes and Mr. Linnard Visiting Properties  .in Camp.  Dr. E. Bowes and D. M. Linnard, of  Rossland, were in the city for  several  days this week.    They   visited   Republic, coming'here from  the  reservation  camp.    They   are both   heavily  interested in-the Morrison, and  after .^visiting- that;,property made  an effort to secure   more   shares   in    the   company. -  They   also   visited  the Mother Lode.  Mr. Linnard was peculiarly   interested  in this property, as  he had  it  bonded  for $12,000 several years ag-o but threw  it up on account of lack of  transportation facilities.    Both the visitors were  greatly impressed with".the  wonderful  showing- on the property  and  the  excellent work that is being- done.  Dr. Bowes is the pioneer medical  man of Rossland, where lje has a larg-e  practice. Mr. Linnard is a shrewd investor and has made considerable  money in mining and real estate speculation. They returned to Rossland on  Friday. ,        '         '  DEATH   OF   MRS.   WARTMAN.  Mrs.  A. j. Wartman Died  on  Friday. After  "-.*��� a Brief Illness.  The many friends of Mrs. A. J.  Wartman, wife of the well known con- "  tractor, will be shocked to learn that  her illness terminated fatally about  noon on Friday, the 24th inst. The  deceased lady came here from Manitoba to join her husband about a year  ago. She soon made a larg-e circle of  friends who deeply regret her early demise. Mrs. Wartman leaves two  children, one an infant only a few days  old. The sympathy of the entire community g-oes to the husband in his sad  bereavement.  MINING   NOTES.  E.  A.   Bielenberg   has  purchased a  half interest in the  Headlight from P.  Helstab.     The   Headlight   is    on   the  West Fork and is one of  the   oldest lo-  ��� cations iu the district.    It   was located  > in   18S5.    There   is  a  strong-   ledge of  rich copper-gold ore on   the   property,  running"   as  high   as   18  per  cent, 'in  ��� copper. ''���'���'���.  The travel to the city during- the  past week has been something- enormous.' Holbrook's stag-e -line" brought  ���15 passengers in on Wednesday. The  other stages were crowded every day  and many private rigs also came iu.  The hotels are taxed to their utmost  capacity.  Edward C. Finch, who bonded the  Oro and Mabel, returned to Rossland  on Thursday. A typographical error  reduced materially the' bonding- price  of those two valuable properties. The  price was 530,000, and not $3,000 as it  appeared in Thr Timks.'  E. J. Matthews, representative of  the Omaha aud Grant Smelting company, has been examining- properties  in the district. Harry Howson accompanied him.  In addition to the Oro and Mable,  John Douglas bonded the Cornicopia,  an adjoining property, for S10.000.  This makes $40,000. for the three  properties.  C'J&.

Since the beg-inning- of the election  campaign, which gave Mayor Hardy  and his working majority an opportunity to temporarily mismanage the  affairs of the city, The Boundary  Creek Times has been a persistent  opponent of the methods adopted to  secure and retain power. Strong  criticisms usually engender hostility  when the unthinking and the ignorant  are criticised, but strong criticisms are  often necessary in the public interest.  The position of The Times has been  consistent throughout, and we think  that the intelligent electors���those having the best interests of the city at  heart���are fully convinced that any  criticisms made were necessary and  justified by the actions of the few individuals who considered themselves  heaven-born municipal legislators.  Mr. Hardy made his first blunder  when he started out to secure control  of the municipal offices, and his conduct sinee then has been a series of  municipal blunders. He issued his  fiat that if he were to be mayor that he  must have " his working majority in  the house." The Times took the stand  that in a small  and  growing- city the  electors should choose the best, men,  . irrespective of their party or political  predilections; arid thnt no good man  should be handicapped at the outset of  the municipal campaign by being  forciblj- brought tinder the Hardy  wing. The ticket was persisted in.  with the result that two men disqualified from holding office were -placed in  nomination. ' The Times exposed the  disqualification, produced records from  the land registry office to show that  the two nominees referred to were disqualified. They were elected; one refused to take his seat and resigned,  and the other took his seat only once,  fearing the penalty of illegally serving as alderman.  Then Mayor Hardy and his servile  working majority took the next illegal  steps.      They    wilfully  ��� violated   the  fundamental  principle . of responsible  government and foisted  an alderman  on the people of the North ward without  their consent.    The   Times took  the ground that the course was illegal,  notwithstanding  the  legal  opinion of  their solicitor.    This paper maintained  that the rights of the  people should be  respected and strongly, criticised the  conduct of the men who  were guilty of  a gross violation of the act and a total  disregard for the rights of the people.  Having   reached   the   end   of their  tether as far as  municipal  illegalities  wore   concerned,   another course was  adopted with,a view to  stifling  public  criticism.   Alderman  Sutherland, the  worst offender in the trio of mediocres,  made a cowardly assault on the editor  .  of The Times.    His object, as he announced,   was    intimidation,   so   that  public criticism would cease,  and he  threatened: further    assaults   if    the  criticisms were continued.    The proud  boast was made at the time of the election that the hoboes i were on  top and  events sin'ce then go to prove that the  boast was not an idle one.  While Alderman .Sutherland is busy  disgracing himself and his position,  one of his brilliant confreres is busy ���,  proving- that the position of The  Times was" correct from the start.  The mayor attempts'to make an unholy  bargain with a prominent gentleman  in the city, that this gentleman and  his friends be allowed to nominate an  alderman for the North ward and Mr.  :Hardy an alderman for the South  ward, and that these two nominees be  ��� allowed their seats by acclamation.  Now, if Mr. Phelan was legally appointed ; if Mr. Nelson is qualified,  where is the necessity for nominations ?  It is simply a consession that, notwithstanding the advice of the solici- .  tor, they know that their position is  untenable, and the brutal, violence  used by one of their number' is because their illegal methods have been  exposed.  When the mayor and his supporters  show a disposition to do business in a  leg-al way, The Times is prepared to  assist them In any possible way, but  while they persist in setting the law  aside and pursuing a course that will  mar the financial standing- of the city  and retard its progrsss The Times will  be found -fighting along the lines pursued since the municipal fight began,  and Alderman Sutherland's thug tactics will not intimidate it into a cessation of hostilities.  Municipal complications are arising  thick and fast. Alderman Campbell  has sold his Copper street property and  has not sufficient other property in his  own name to qualify as alderman.  The penalty for sitting- when not  qualified is 550 a day. It is reported  that Alderman .Campbell intends to  resign. That will make practically  three vacancies.

Immediate application should be made to the undersigned,as the price willcertainly be raised to 50 cents very shortly,  WALDEMAF? WALLAGH  &   GO.  PROF.   MONTGOMERY'S   IMPRESSIONS.  Professor Montgomery, of Trinity  college, who visited Boundary.! Creek  recently, was interviewed by the Toronto Globe upon his return. The following- is a portion of the interview :  "My main object in visiting- British  Columbia was to obtain first hand information, exact and reliable, regarding the mining- properties there, and  especially in Camp McKinney and the  Boundary region. Among- the mors  important mines visited by me may be  fnentioned the War Eag-le and Center  Star of Rossland, the Crow's Nest Pass  coal mines at Fernie, the Old Ironsides  and Knob Hill in Greenwood camp,  Mother Eode in Deadwood camp, and  the Cariboo, Waterloo and Minnehaha  in Camp McKinney. I spent more  than a week in McKinney, and most  of that time underground, examining  the ledg-es and ore bodies of various  properties. Many of these present a  most encouraging appearance. The  ore in this camp is free milling-, and  must-for the most part be reduced by  stamping- and amalgamating-., Work  is g-oing- on night and day at the Cariboo amd Minnehaha. Placer mining  is carried on during- the summer season  on Rock creek near by, and is said to  be quite successful. The presence of  so much dust and of riugg-ets in Rock  creek indicates the existence of large  bodies of free-milling- quartz in the  vicinity. I have two nug-g-ets that were  recently taken from Rock creek placers, one of them being almost pure  gold and weighing 37 pennyweights.  Its intrinsic value will probably be  about $32. The other nugget is worth  about $18. From McKinny and Rock  Creek I staged it to Midway, Greenwood City and Cascade City, passing  . ranches iu the valleys and mines and  prospects on the hills and mountains.  Here and there I saw the C. P. R. construction gangs busy at work upon the  extension of that railwaj' through the  Boundary country west and northwest  towards Penticton and the Okanagan  valley. At Greenwood I found branches  ;>f the Bank of Commerce, Bank of  _ Montreal and Bank of British North  America; the first named was conducting its banking business in premises formerly occupied by a restaurant,  the Montreal Bank was in a saloon  building and the British North America bank occupied a butcher shop.  Greenwood has a social club, and it  comprises many intelligent, enterpris-  ing|;itizeus. By the courtesies of Mayor  Wood, Mr. Cameron of the Canadian  Bank of Commerce, Mr. Mowat, the  son of our lieutenant-governor, and  other residents, my visit was made unusually pleasant   and   satisfactory.    I  drove to Deadwood camp and examined  the Mother Lode mine, the property of  the British Columbia Copper company.  Under the able management of Superintendent Keffer, the Mother Lode is  bsing- well developed. I went down  into the shaft and inspected the ore  body at the 100-foot level and also the  200-foot level, which is the greatest  depth yet reached. At both these  places I sampled the ledge across its  faces on both sides of the shaft, taking  the samples with me for assay. The  ore was continuous and uniform in appearance the whole way across the  face, a distance of fourteen feet in  each place, and no' walls to be' seen.  As to the value of the ore in the shaft  and that on the dump, I cannot yet  speak with exactness, but I estimate  that it carries perliaA's about 5 per  cent, of copper aud 35 per ton iu gold,  making a total average value of from  iplO to $15 per ton.    '"',."  BIG ORE  BODIES.  " In Greenwood camp I visited the  Old Ironsides and Knob Hill mines.  They are adjacent properties and contain the same ore bodies. .An open  cut on the Knob Hill shows a body of  ore 300 feet wide and carrying good  values. The same' quality of ore is  met with in the tunnel which is run in  140 feet below on the mountain sine. A  hundred feet below that on the Old  Irons'ides an open cut shows up a body  of ore of about the same width and of  similar character. I descended the  shaft on the Old Ironsides to the 200-  foot level and. sampled the ore on a  crosscut, which I was informed was  cut straight across the vein for a distance of 86 feet. On these two mines  and on the Mother Lode the ore bodies  are of immense size ami continuous.  " The president of the Winnipeg  mine, who accompanied me during my  visit to the mine, informed me that a  five-to'n smelter test of the ore. gave  returns of S71 a-ton. An unusual thing  about the ore body of this mine is that  the rock is very soft, and therefore can  be worked at a less cost than is usual  in that country."  Church Services.

The above photo-engraving reached The Times office ori Monday last, two months after we expected it from  Winnipeg. It was intended for the Christmas Number, but we publish it in this issue because it is a fairly good illustration of last year's coancil and city officers, who are among-the prominent business men of the city.  THE   ESTIMATES.  At the time of writing- the estimates  , '   ...-���������.���  are not to hand, but sufficient has been  gleaned from telegraphic reports to  warrant the conclusion 'that tne'Sem-  lin government prefer economy to progress, and that they do not intend-to  bear their share towards the development of the rich, mining-districts of the  province, simply because such a course  will, cost money. Boundary Creek is  in a peculiarly happy position. It was  gerrymandered by the Turner government, arid the Semlin government apparently endorses this treatment.  We' do 'not know whether to look to  Rossland. district or to East Yale for.,  our share of appropriations. In either  case the sums are. so inadequate that  any share which might come in this  direction would not meet the requirements of Boundary Creek.  The Semlin government has taken  advantage of the. gross injustice perpetrated on Boundary Creek by the Turner government." In order to save a  few thousand dollars, it endorses the  redistribution bill of. last ,year so far  as the disfranchisement of Boundary  Creek is concerned and fails to recognize its right to that consideration it  would receive if the district were made,  into a separate constituency'.  WORKING   MEN'S   CHANCES.  Too Many Men Seeking Employment Coming  Into the District.  During the past few weeks .there has  been" a phenomenal" influx of- people  into Boundary Creek district. A great  many are men with money,-seeking  investments. There is always room  for people of this class and splendid  opportunities to increase their capital.  Many miners, however,' hearing so  much on the outside about Boundary  Creek, decided .to come here. Now  while the amount of development work  is increasing daily, mining men must  necessarily know that it takes considerable time before a mine can be placed  upon a footing that will warrant the  employment of a large number of men-.  .There is great danger -that, during the  next few months too many men seeking  employment will find their way here.  It would be much better, for miners to  remain where they ,can secure employment than to take chances in Boundary  Creek for the next 'few ' months.. The  same advice holds good with reference  to other laboring men.. I.n the.development stage a district can give'employment to only a_ limited number of men.  It is quite possible-that as a last resort men can get employment in the  construction���' 'of   the .railway.     Those  unaccustomed   to   this  kind  of work,  however, will find it anything but easy.  A large consignment of stationery  was received at The Times offiee this  week.
