On no property in the ���',Boundary: Creek' district has  more development been done for the amount of money expended than on the Sunset in Deadwood camp. The claim  is situated about three miles from Greenwood, and was  located in 1892 by John E)ast, and was purchased in 1896 by  W. L/. Hogg arid Barkley Stevens of Montreal. In May  1897 development work was commenced on the property  under the superintendence of Mr. J. H. Macfarlane, who  has since, been in charge of work on the claims. During  the past winter no work was done on the property, but  early in the spring a cook house, bunk house and other  necessary buildings were erected, and in May actual  development of the mine was commenced and has since  been pushed as rapidly as possible without machinery.  Developriient so far done consists of a 100-foot shaft,  636 feet of tunneling and considerable open work. The  main tunnel is 470 feet in   length, and .from this 136 feet of  " crosscutting has been done. At 300 feet the main tunnel  was curved 44 degrees to the north-west, with the object of  . crosscutting the ledge at right angles, and connecting with  the shaft. The ledge was encountered 45 feet east of the  shaft and the drift was continued 25 feet west of the shaft.  The entire distance of 65 feet is in concentrating ore and  no wall at level of tunnel has   been   found.    An uprise was  run from the tunnel to the shaft, at the bottom  of  which a  ..   "   .   . . ji   *'   . ���  large station is now being cut, and froth which development  will be continued by a perpendicular shaft to the 200-foot  ��� level, with the object of getting into, a more solid formation.  This will give greater depth than in any other mine in the  district.  machinery is put in it   can  working shaft size.  The shaft is 4)4 by 7 feet and the tunnel 6 by 8 feet in  the clear. From the 20th of May to the 14th of July last,  55 days actual work, 232^ feet of tunnelling was run by  two shifts. Throughout the 70 feet of ledg*e matter in  which the crosscuts have been run, good assay values in  gold have been had from the ore, and all indications are  favorable for the Sunset group being among the shipping  mines of the district as soon as railway transportation is  furnished.  The Crown Silver, a claim adjoining* the Mother I/ode  on the east, is owned by' Messrs. Hogg and Stevens, on  which sufficient work has been done to obtain a crown  grant. The CO. D., another claim bonded by Mr. Hogg  last year, adjoins the Sunset on the north and the Crown.  Silver on the east. The CO. D. is being crown granted,  and will be developed along* with the Sunset and Crown  Silver, some very rich ore having been taken from the  work already done.  As soon as the development work now in hand is completed, it is the intention of the owners to put in a first-class  plant. The buildings on the property consist of a cook  house 24 x 18 feet, bunk house 20 x 18, office 16 x 14, stables  and cellar. Six men are at work on the properties, and a  contract will be let next week for sinking a 100-feet shaft,  besides other work contemplated.  The shaft   is   being  sunk   on. line   so   that when  be   trimmed  and retimbered to  tie.  ~>ie      fie      fit"  THE   CITY   DEBENTURES.  It would be the worst kind of folly to sacrifice the city  debentures. Municipal fathers and city ratepayers are  prone to get anxious because the money'necessary for needed  improvements is not at once procurable. Under such circumstances there is a strong temptation  to accept any offer  from a company or   an   individual,- who   is   always   on   the  alert to secure valuable municipal   franchises at a sacrifice.  We are firmly of the opinion   that   the   residents  of Grand  Forks will find that the city made a very poor bargain when  the city debentures were practically traded  for   an electric  light  plant   and   a   system   of  waterworks.    An}'   similar  arrangement should be opposed in Greenwoods The business  of Greenwood is   on   a   sufficiently   strong   basis   and   the  future of   the   city   appears sufficiently hopeful, to warrant  the conclusion  that  the  debentures  can   be   floated in the  ordinary way, and at a price that will not be a reflection on  the stability of the city   nor  establish   a  bad   precedent   in  the flotation of future loan's. "��  The debentures should be sold, not given in exchange  for something that should yield a profit to the city, rather  than to speculative individuals.  ���ilf.  THE   CITY   COUNCIL.  The regular meeting of the city council was held in the  court house on Monday evening last. Aldermen Barrett,  Kerr, Parry, Paton and Phelan were present. In the  absence of the mayor, Alderman Barrett was voted to the  chair.  Applications for the position of city clerk were received  from Messrs. G. B. Taylor, James Machell, W. S. Keith and  A. B. Rice. A ballot was taken and Mr. Taylor appointed  at a salary of $15 per month.  Messrs. W. M. Law, ~L. B. Pearse, W. S. Keith, D. C.  McRae, G. R. Naden, Thos. Gulley, J. W. Nelson and R. M.  McEntire, a committee from the volunteer fire department,  waited on the council with a view to securing much-needed  apparatus. D.C McRae acted as spokesman for the committee. Alderman Barrett generously placed the use of  his hall at the disposal of the department for a place of  meeting*. After considerable discussion, the following were  suggested as needed improvements : Additional ladders, a  room to store apparatus, wells in Twin creek and barrels of  water at the rear of premises.  The following resolution was passed : That $100 be  appropriated for fire protection purposes, that the volunteer-  fire department be authorized to secure needed improvements covering* that amount, and that permission is hereby  temporarily granted to the volunteer fire department to use  the alley between Government and Copper streets, north of  Greenwood street, for building purposes.  Chief of Police Taylor reported that the police commissioners wished to have a fence erected around the jail  so that prisoners could be emploj'ed there. As the jail  belongs to the provincial government, the city clerk was  instructed to write the attornej'-general, asking that the  provincial government erect the required fence.  No formal proposal for debentures was submitted to the  council, but Alderman Barrett presented a private letter  in which Mr. Barnard stated that he had written Mayor  Wood, offering- the city $20,000 for a year at 10 per cent., if  properly covered b}* by-law, on the condition that he is  given a twelve-months5 option on the debentures at 98. The  city solicitor also reported that Mr. W. ~L. Hogg had  offered 95 for the debentures, $5,000 in cash and the balance  upon his return to Montreal. As Mr. Hogg was absent  from the cit3*, and also Mayor Wood, it was decided to defer  action upon the offers for one week.  The city constable was instructed to  notify   all  owners  that horses or   mules, adorned with   cowbells,   would not be  permitted to run at large within the city limits.  The council then adjourned. THE   BOUNDARY   CREEK   TIMES,  BASEBALL   MATCH,  The baseball game at Grand Forks  on Saturday last between teams from  Greenwood and Grand Forks, was an  easy victory for the representatives of  the City of Floods. The game was  played on the hew g-rounds of the club.  Mayor Davis opened the game by  pitching* the first ball.   F. H. McCarter  ��� umpired, for Grand Forks and W.  Asquith for Greenwood. Each did the  best he could for his own team. Neither  team pla3*,e.d the very best kind of ball,  but  Greenwood   played   a worse   kind  ���than Grand Forks. For the home  team,   Thomas, EaPlant, Donog*h   and  ��� Hallet played   ball.    Following*   is the  .score by innings:  12    3    4    5    0  "7    S    9    T  Greenwood     0   2    0   0   0   0   4   4   2���1.1  Grand   Forks     4   0 1.1    1 ,0   7   3    1     ���27  Medill pitched the first three inningrs'  and the last two, Hallett pitching- the  fourth, fifth and sixth. Coi*3rell occupied the box for Grand Forks. The  large scores in the 3rd and 6th innings  were the result of errors by the infield,  as very few safe hits were made in the  the match. Next time Greenwood may  do better.  THE   REPUBLIC   MINE.  The Republic mine produced about  $63,000 worth of ore in July. The shipments to the smelter were 293 tons,  averaging $174 to the ton, making  about $50,900, and the product of the  mill was $12,000. The shipments were  limited only by the number of available teams. The haul of 85 miles from  Republic up into British Columbia and  then down to Marcus to reach the railroad is a long one and it is not easy to  find means of gettingeore from camp  to car. With better facilities for shipping, the product would be larg*ely increased. The mill will work higher  grade ore this., month". The bullion  from the mill is running weight for  weight in silver and gold.  The Republic will probably begin  pa3ring dividends about October 1st.  Recent shipments have practically  cleared off all the indebtedness of the  company, paid for all the development  work done on the mine and for the mill  and the property has now entered upon  the 'work of paying dividends. It is  planned to pay $50,000 per month, and  if nothing unforseen arises these payments will be made with great reg*u-  larity, 3-ielding to the stockholders  $600,000 a 3-ear or 60 per cent, on the  capital stock. A little, more than a  3*ear ago Republic stock was sold at 10  cents per share. There is practically  none upon the market af'-any price  to-day.  A Challenge.

J. W. Nelson of the Pioneer hotel returned Sunday from a business trip to  Spokane.  J. S. Iye.ckie, manager of the Velvet  mine Rossland, was in the city Sun-  da)* and Monday.  Peter Fletcher came do***n from  Camp McKinney on Monday. He has  located several promising1, properties in  that vicinity.  D.Bryant and W. Huff left for West  Copper camp on Monday last to work  on properties in which Mr. Bryant is  interested.  E. Mortimer and J. C. Haas left  Thursday on a holiday trip which they  intend spending- in hunting and fishing- up the Kettle river.  Considerable development has been  done on the Bullion, Greenwood camp,  this season, principally surface work.  Two very promising ledg*es have been  uncovered. Development will be continued until sufficient work is done to  obtain a crown grant.  J. Jermyn left on Tuesday for his  home in Toronto. Mr. Jermyn has  invested larg*ely in Boundary property.  Among his recent purchases were 34  lots from T. A. Garland of Anaconda.  The lots lie between Greenwood and  Anaconda, along Boundary creek.  The Kane brothers are working on  the Red Rock in (Greenwood camp, and  have struck it rich, having-, it is  claimed, uncovered the Knob Hill lead  on the property. If this proves correct the Knob Hill will be one of the  most valuable claims in the district.  J. and R. Fraser have completed the  assessment work oh two very promising claims in Camp McKinney No. 2,  the Evening* Star and Selby. On both  these claims there are strong leads of  copper and g-alena. Some free milling  quartz has also been found on the  property. They are now working on  the Sinbad in Wellington camp, on  which two assessments have already  been done.  Jas. Sutherland and Eli 'McDowell  finished assessment work on the Nellie  Cotton, an adjoining claim to the Red  Rock in Greenwood camp. There is a  larg*e ore body on the property, carrying ��good values in silver and gold.  Four assessments have been done on  the claim and a crown grant will be  applied for this fall. The Nellie Cotton is owned by Jas. Sutherland and  Hal. J. Cole.  D. C. McRae, Duncan Ross, Thos.  McDonnell, Frank Rendell, A. S.  Black, E. C. Wickwire, R. M. McEntire,  Mrs. and the Misses McEntire and Mrs.  and the Misses Moody, left Monday for  a week's fishing above Rock Creek.  Ross, McDonnell and McRae are in  charge of the commissary. Some idea  may be formed of their nationality  when it is stated that the order for  oatmeal was 50 pounds and condensed  milk two. cases. The other orders, as  near as could be ascertained were :  Baking powder 25 cans, 10 pounds  bacon. 10 pounds flour, 25 pounds tea,  15 pounds coffee, 150 sugar, 50 salt,  50 bottles Worcester sauce, 10 pounds  cloves, 1 case pepper, 1 barrel (contents  unknown), two boxes (contents not  known) labeled H. W. & S. Imperial,  probably some new brand of baking or  yeast powder. It is said the ladies of  the party modified the order somewhat  before a start was made.

THE   BOUNDARY   CREEK    TIMES,  GREENWOOD   AND   DISTRICT.  Mr. R. Smailes returned on Tuesday  froma business trip to the Coast cities,  coming* in via Spokane.  Fred Oliver of Rossland made a visit  of inspection to the Athelstan mine in  Welling-ton camp Thursday last.  1 Jas. Cunningham is doing* assessment work on the Tredwell in Summit  camp. Three assessments have been  done on the claim.  Jas. Smith and Ed. Kelly returned  from Lookout mountain Thursday  evening-, where they were working-on  the Gobelson fraction.  Assessment is being* done on the  Columbia, Keystone and Ophir in Welling-ton camp. The claims are owned  b):.J. M. Taylor and others.  The C. P. R. eng-ineers are making  a preliminary survey for a spur from  the main'line at Rendell's ranch to the  mines of Wellington and Greenwood  camps.  P. H. McCarter & Sons of the Grand  Forks Miner have about completed the  sale of the paper and will probably  commence the publication of a paper  in Cascade City in a few weeks.  Mrs;'McLeod, Mrs. Collins and J. G.  Goupil returned from a fishing trip to  Pass Creek Thursday. Mr. Goupil reports that Pass creek fish will take  any kind of bait; also the flies.  'X  A ledge of free-milling* quartz was  recently discovered on the Iron Chief.  Eagle mountain. The lead is about  three feet in width and has been uncovered for a distance of 300 feet.  Some very rich specimens have been  taken from the claim. ���  Three "permanent" surveys have  been made across the Kettle river near  Grand Forks for the proposed line of  railway. The C. P. R. appears to be  playing Grand Forks and Upper Grand  Forks one against the other, and in.,,  the end will fleece both.  Although notification was received  some time ag*o that a postoflice would  be opened at Greenwood camp, no  notice has been received as to the  name and when the office would be  opened. The early establishment of  a postoffice there would be a great convenience to the hundreds of miners  working in Greenwood and Wellington  camps.  ' Thos. McDonnell and R. M. McEntire returned Thursda}' night from  Rock Creek. 'Th'e3r' had fish for all  their friends, but unfortunately they  were forgotten in the .hurry of leaving,  the Rock. Creek mosquitoes. Mr. McDonnell caught one very large fish,  but the line broke and the fish was  mislaid somewhere along the river.  The other members of. the part3r will  be home in a few days bringing the  forg-otten fish with them.  Jack Farrell of Wellington camp  was in the cit\* Thursday* and Friday.  ' Mr. Farrell is interested in some of  the best claims in that camp and has  finished all his assessment work for  the season, so is taking- a holiday-- during- the hot weather. He hcts been in  the district for nearly eight years and  believes the time was well spent. Like  all the old-time prospectors on Boundary creek, his properties are good ones,  and he can afford to wait  for his price.  Windsor Hotel Barber Shop  Coppkr Street, Grkenwood.

THE   BOUNDARY   CREEK   TIMES.  THE   TERMS   OF   PEACE.  The following* is the, official statement given out by the authority of the  president, as to the terms of peace  offered by.the United States :  "To remove any misapprehension in  regard to the negotiations as to peace  between the United States and, Spain  it is deemed proper to say that the  terms offered by the United States in  the note handed to the French ambassador on Friday last are in substance  as follows :  "The president does not now put  forward any claims for pecuniary indemnity, but requires Spain's relinquishment of the claim of sovreignty  over or title to the island of Cuba, as  well as the immediate evacuation by  Spain of the island ; the cession to the  United States and the immediate evacuation of Puerto Rico and the other-  islands under Spanish sovereignty in  the West Indies and a like cession of  an island in the Ivadrones ; the United  States will occupy and hold the city,  bay and harbor of Manilla, pending-  the conclusion of the treaty of peace,  which shall determine the control, disposition and government of ,the Philippines. If these terms are accepted by  Spain in their entirety, commissioners  will be named by the United States to  meet commissioners on the part of  Spain for the purpose of concluding- a  treaty of peace on the basis above indicated."  AN   IMPORTANT   DECISION.  Judgment has been handed down by  Justice Drake in the case of Sunshine  Limited vs. Cunningham & Mag-uire.  The latter was for upwards of a year  superintendent of the City of Spokane  mine, in Centre Star gulch. After  -work was suspended here, Maguire  was sent by the Iyillooet, Fraser River  & Cariboo Gold Fields Co. to superintend work on the Sunshine, a subsidiary company in the Iyardeau. Cunningham, the other defendant, was  foreman at that mine. While employed  there and while under notice of dismissal, during- his spare time, Cunning-ham staked the Gold Bug mineral  claim, adjoining- the Sunshine and  covering the ground occupied by the  Sunshine buildings and ore and rock  dump, Maguire buying- a half-interest  in it. The Sunshine claims that the  Gold Bug was staked for that company  by Cunningham as their agent. Mag-uire lost his situation. By the judg--  ment Cunning-ham & Maguire are confirmed in the possession of the Gold  Bug* outside the Sunshine ground, and  that company retains its buildings but  is restrained from depositing waste  rock on the Gold Bug. This, it is understood,   will   prevent  the  Sunshine  company from working its mine upon  the present plan, while the Gold Bug  is said to have a valuable ledge, in addition to being in position to force the  Sunshine company to buy or submit to  heavy loss.   Six petitions have been lodg*ed  against the return of members of the  legislative assembly, five government  and one opposition. The grounds are  bribery and corruption.

The result of the provincial elections  in this province appears to be a bone  of contention for the eastern press,  both parties claiming* a victory. What  the majority of the electors in British  Columbia aimed at was the defeat of a  very corrupt administration. In this  they were successful. Very few oppositionists believe that either party in  federal politics is aii3r great improvement on Dunsmuir,ism. In Boundary  district both Conservative and Liberal  -worked and voted for what thej'- considered the best interests of, the community as a whole, regardless of  federal issues. The names Liberal  and Conservative, Grit and Tory, have  no meaning- when used west of the  boundary ��� line between Ontario and  Manitoba. Here are two extracts,  the first from the Guelph Mercury, a  publication which never rose to the  dig*nity of a I^ibenal newspaper. It is  simply a Grit sheet. Readers will be  able to form some idea of its reliability,  and truthfulness when it is stated that  J. C. Mcl/ag*an of the Vancouver  World was at one time its publisher,  the other extract is from the Toronto  Telegram, a newspaper with strong-  propensities for scalping- everything*  and everybody :  " But the Liberal wave  over the Do  minion had not spent its force, and the  policy of the present Dominion government towards British Columbia  g*ave the provincial opposition some  foothold on which to appeal to the supporters of the Liberal government at  " Ottawa against-a nominally Conservative group of ministers at Victoria."  ��� Guelph Mercury.  Toronto   Telegram :    "Whether  the  Iriberal wave has or has  not   spent its  force  is a question   upon   which   party  -journals'" are   free    to   differ   as  thev  please, but the Guelph  Mercury does a  .great   wrong   to   the   leaders   of   the  British   Columbia  opposition   b3r .suggesting that it was  a.ided by the policy  of   the  Ivaurier   Government  towards  their province.    The   truth   is that the  I/a-urier   government    made    itself    a  partner in the sins charged against the  Turner government.    The liberals., of  the British Columbia opposition had to  disassociate themselves from the poYicy  of the   I/attrier   government   in   order  that they might fight the   Turner government   and   its   policy.    They  could  not   support   Clifford   Sifton's  Yukon  railway bargain and at  the same time  condemn  J. H. Turner's   Cassiar  railway barg*ain.    They could not pretend  to justify Wilfrid I/aurier's acceptance  of the Crow's   Nest  Pass   deal, and at  the same time condemn Colonel Baker,  the originator   of   that  deal.     Consequently the British Columbia Liberals  did not   attempt  to   apologize  for  the  Ottawa government's  big share in the  iniquities, of the   Turner  government.  Liberal admirers   of  the   Laurier government's policy   towards   British   Columbia were o mostly  supporters of the  Turner government, and   the Liberals  who "were  disgusted  with, the  Crow's  Nest Pass deal joined  their  Conservative  fellow-countrymen   in   a glorious  fight for the verdict which includes the  leading features   in  the  policy  of the  Laurier   government   towards  British  Columbia in its  just  condemnation of  the Turner government."  A petition for the re-opening of the  Camp McKinney school has been forwarded to the department at Victoria.  Several families have lately come to  reside in the locality, having children  of school age. Miss Johnson, late of  the Grand Forks school, will probably  receive the appointment.

The tote road, now being built from  Brooklyn to Cascade city, is completed  five miles west of the summit and will  be finished to Cascade City in a few  days.  Engineer Rice and staff arrived in  the city Wednesday. He is now making the permanent location for line of  Columbia and Western between Grand  Prairie and Greenwood. It is said  that Grand Forks has been left out in  the cold and that the depot will be  located in Upper Grand Forks.  Already 100 men and 50 teams are at  work on the widening of the Trail-  Rossland end of the Columbia and  Western railway. The work will be  rushed through as rapidly as possible,  for the contractors will sustain a fine  of $100 per day for each day after  October 15th before the job is completed.  The contractors on the Columbia and  Western are following the same course  as that pursued on the Crow's Nest in  regard to treatment of employees. The  10 per cent, is still charged for cashing  cheques. A couple of men working  near Brooklyn became intoxicated and  had a fight, one of them being seriously injured, and although the injured man had been paying hospital  dues sof.. $1 per month, the railway  physician refused to attend to his injuries until a collection, was made  among the men and handed over to him.  The big steel passenger steamer now  being built at Nelson by the C. P. R.  is nearing completion and will be fit  for service b3r the end of September,  the boat is 160 feet in length and will  be the handsomest and fastest craft of  the kind ever seen on the inland waters  of British Columbia. It will be used  in connection with the Crow's Nest  Pass railway passenger service. A  boat of the same type as the one in the  course of construction at Nelson is to  be built for service on Arrow lakes and  the Columbia river, and will be completed within the next 90 days.

It is expected work will be resumed  on the Golden Crown, Wellington  camp, in a couple of weeks.  Aid. Kerr arrived in the city Tuesday, having- purchased and brought in  a band of sheep from Wenatchee.  The freierht rate is now 2Vz cents be-  tween Penticton and Greenwood���and  the teamsters earn every cent of it.  R. T. Cooper, representing* Simon  Leiser & Co., Victoria, was in the city  this week soliciting* orders for his firm.  Messrs. Harrison and Barchard of  the;B. C. are still in Rossland, but are  expected back at the mine   next  week.  Geo. Cook andC. C. Warmoth came  down from Welling-ton camp on Thursday, where they had been doing* assessment on the Jim. '  Jas. Wilbur has a force of men at  work on the Anaconda brickyard and  ���will commence moulding the begin-  ning- of next week.  A rich pay chute was struck in the  shaft of the Brooklyn, in Greenwood  camp, this week, the ore running  nearly $50 in g*old alone.  J. W. Hug-h Wood and H. F. Elliot  went up to Long Lake Thursday to  look over the properties of that camp.  C. L. Thomet of Midway accompanied  them.  Four men were put to work on the  Oro Denoro in Summit camp this week.  They were sent over from Rossland by  the syndicate having* a bond on the  property. ��  Cameron and Emerson have resumed work on the tunnel of the Lakeside in Long Lake camp. The tunnel  is in about 40 feet, and they expect to  tap the ledg-eVby running*  20 feet more.  Fred Graff, the well known and  popular proprietor of the Brooklyn  house, Greenwood camp, has sold out  to Messrs. McMillan and McDonald,  who are now in charg-e of the business.  A prospector who arrived in Greenwood Saturday from6 Brooklyn, stated  that he had prospected the Burnt Basin  district thproug*hly, and was of the  opinion that it would never be a shipping- camp.  An inspection will be made next  week of all the building-s in the city by  the chief of police, the chief of the fire  department and the city clerk. The  object of the inspection is for sanitar}'  and fire protection purposes.  Excavations are being* made on  Boundary creek near the falls \>y  Messrs. Barrett, Hodg-son and Fergu-  son, with the object of putting- in a  hydraulic plant and working- the  benches along* the creek.  A rumor is g-oing- the rounds to the  effect that the Big* Copper has been  bonded by J. Moran and Austin Hammer to W. L. Hog-g- of Montreal for  $40,000. As none of the parties to the  transaction ara in the city at  present, the particulars cannot be  g-iven this issue.  D. Campbell received a telegram  this week from MacKenzie & Mann to  commence work on the Enterprise in  Long- Lake camp. It has been decided  by the owners not to allow work to be  continued until a payment of 20 per  cent, of the bonding- price i*s made by  Mackenzie & Mann.  Each assay of the Winnipeg- ore is  better than the previous one, the last  g-iving* over $100 in g-old and about 8  per cent, copper. The ore from which  the assay was made was run into last  May and has since been widening* out  until now it covers the whole face of  the drift. Assays have been made as  the work progressed, running- from  $50 to $120 in all values.  D. Bryant has cut a trail from his  properties in West Copper camp to  Wenrick's ranch at the forks,(, of In^  grim creek, from which place there is  a wag-on road to the main road. The  camp is about two miles from Wenrick's  ranch, and from there to the main  road at Ingrim's ranch is about a  mile, making-the distance from West  Copper to Midway about six miles of  wag-oh road and two of trail.  Rickards, Benerman & Co. of Midway move into their new office this  week. The building- is 18 by 30 feet,  neatly furnished. The front office,  which is 18 hy 20 feet, will be used as  a public office, contains the desks of  the Hierhland Queen aud Bullion Min-  ing* companies, a larg-e fire-proof safe,  and a cabinet of ores of the district, in  which are specimens from every camp  and nearly every claim of any importance. The back room"6f=the building,  10 by 18, will be used as a private office.  At the regular weekly meeting- of  the Greenwood Fire brigade held  Wednesday evening considerable business was done. A committee, composed of Messrs. Law, Pearse and  Donog-h, were appointed to attend to  financial matters between the city  council and the brigade. It was decided to purchase a 50-foot extension  ladder, put in three tanks on Twin  creek, and build a hose and ladder  house at corner of Greenwood and  Govern ment streets. Matters connected with the ball were also discussed.  It was  reported   in   town  Thursday  that a well known prospector had made  a rich strike on   one  of  his West Fork  properties, and that one assay went as  high as $256 in gold to the  ton.    A reporter called on the  gentleman Thursday evening and asked for particulars.  He stated   that ''he   had made no rich  strike, and  didn't want   any d���d puff  about it."    It might not be out of place  to suggest to the gentleman  that The  Times is   not   a   wind instrument.    Its  business is not to. " puff," but to  give  actual facts in reference to the properties of the district.    When a prospector  makes a  location  and,   after  development, finds it   to  be   a  good one, it is  his duty in the   interests   of  the   community to make  the  facts  known.    It  advertises, the district and attracts the  attention   of  possible   investors.    The  average reporter  in   the  west  doesn't  cary a supply of iron   hoops  with   him  on his rounds, and has neither the time  nor the   inclination   to  cooper  up   the  heads   of   the   persons  from  whom he  wishes   information.      The prospector  in   question   arrived   in  the city  with  some rock, had  the  rock  assayed, got  returns of  $256   in   gold   to   the   ton,  showed  the  assayer's  certificate  to a  dozen   people, and   stated   the  ore was  from the  West   Fork.    These  are  the  facts.    Could it possibly do  an  injury  to the claim or the district to have this  published in any or all the newspapers  of British Columbia ?    The   ore   from  which the high assays were taken was  tellurium   and   very  similar  to   specimens from Long Lake camp.

Carlyle, the chief engineer of  the-British America corporation. This,  the latest and most dramatic of a long-  series of developments in connection  with the fight of the corporation to secure the property, occurred Thursday  morning, when, acting under ah order  of Judge Spinks of the county court,  Mr. Carlyle, accompanied by Sheriff  Robinson, formally took charge of the  property. Hon. C. H. Mackintosh, the  resident director, states that the action  was taken in the interests of the majority of the stock owners, as against  the minority represented by Senator  Turner. At the monthly meeting held  in Spokane last Tuesday, five out of  the nine trustees were in. favor of carrying out the wishes of the majority,  but the chairman (Senator Turner) refused to put the motion and adjourned  the meeting,���hence this action.  A Diocese for Kootenay.  Next synod of the Anglican church  in British Columbia will likely see  Bast and West Kootenay and probably  Boundary Creek erected into a diocese.  The matter is one which is ripe for action by that body. That territory now  contains almost one-fourth of the population of the province, a population  that is rapidly increasing-, its territory  is large, and it is quite evident now,  with vso many places in which services,  are held at such great distances apart,  that already a bishop would find himself very easily employed in all his  duties. The question has been discussed for some time and the feeling  in Kootenay is believed to be practically unanimous in favor of the proposed change.  HEAVY   BLASTS.  A decidedly interesting feature in  the construction of the new railway to  Midway is the removal of rock. At  Johnson's camp an unusually large  blast was set off on Wednesday morning, when 27 kegs of powder were exploded, which sent six thousand yards  of rock-thundering down the mounlain  side, thescene of the work being far  above the lake. This is the largest  blast, removing more rock, ever recorded on the line. On the Crow's  Nest 127 kegs moved the same number  of yards, but the blast held 100 kegs  more than this one. To stand where  the rock came from and look down the  mountain where this huge mass of  rock rolled, it seemed like a Dakota  wheat field after a hail storm had  struck it. Hugh trees were uprooted  and a path was cleared the entire distance.���-Trail News.  .ABORERS NEEDED.  There is a great demand for men on  the Columbia & Western. The line  now being constructed from Robson  west can use two thousand men in addition to the thousand now -working.  As the line becomes'more definitely established and cleared for 'work,,, it is  the intention of the company to add as  many workmen as can possibly work  to a.dvantag*e. Additional men are  being placed at work on the road and  in the rock cuts as rapidly as they apply for employment. There are hundreds in the several camps and along  the '* tote " road When construction  is fairly under way there will be at  least three thousand men.working* east  of the summit. .  tift-tf ZX*X��*-&*ZJ .:2&��i.'Z/��i��?u��. *��  ^ jy.^.-w.ia-^ �� r J  Hair Brushes.

Readers of eastern  daily papers during* the Northwest rebellion in 1885, will remember the Earl  of Minto as Iyord Melgund, who, as  chief of staff to General Middleton, was  the hero of many daring exploits. At  Batoche he "rode up a hill and down  again, and discovered a Metis about a  mile away." While in command of a  scouting party, he captured a piano  and a washtub in a deserted "breed"  residence.  The .:'following' in reference to  Canada's new .social head and political  figurehead will perhaps be of interest  to some of the more aristocratic readers  of The Time's.:  "'The IOarl of. Minto, who has been  appointed the successor to the Karl of  Aberdeen as governor-general of Canada, is an Blliot of Teviotdale. Minto,  from which the family takes its title,  is a little village of Roxburgshire,  Scotland, nit is a family that ca.n count  among its kith and kin men who were  'inured to foreign wars and feudal  quarrels,' such as the redoubtable  Wat o' Harden and Iyorriston, lyion of  L/iddesdale, also heroic little Jock  Elliot, whose challenge of " Wha daur  meddle wi me?" has been enwoven in  song and adopted as the motto of the  Border Mountain Volunteers. L/ord  Heathfield, the illustrious defender of  Gibraltar, was likewise a member of  the clan,'and so was Admiral Elliot,  the conqueror of Thurot. Distinguished  as Lord Minto's kinsmen and clansmen have been on sea and land, there  were among them powerful politicians  and successful diplomats. One of them  was lieutenant-governor of New York  in the old colonial days, and the first  Earl of Minto held the office of governor-general of India."  A   CLEVER   WORKER.  The following from the Rossland  Miner in regard to the woman Fisher,  whom the police ordered out of town  last week, will be of interest to many  of the victims :  The late lamented Mrs.   Fisher, who  with her  interesting  brood  of young  Fishers worked this town for all it was  worth a few weeks ago, is  now  devoting her talents to lightening the pockets of the benevolentry inclined in the  Boundary country.    Her  graft  is  the  same that she worked   so  successfully  here, and it goes without   saying  that  the woman made a triumphant success  of it, for the Boundary  miners  proved  just as susceptible to her tearful  tales  as had their brothers   employed in this  camp.     Mrs.   Fisher,    as  her  victims  well remember,  drifted into camp several weeks ago accompanied by a wag-  onful of youngsters,   and   her   mission  ostensibly was to discover  the nryster-  ious Mr. Fisher, who was   supposed to  be at work in some of the properties in  the camp and had, in  fact, written for  her to come on from   her  old   home   in  Butte.    A careful examination of each  of the mines failed to uncover any evidence of the missing dear one,   and   as  her plight seemed to be   a   sore  one   a  collection was taken up for  her benefit  at each of the properties visited.    The  contributions  thus  prof erred  her  ran  $5 to $100, according to the size   of the  property, and her gratitude  at receiving them was said by the spectators to  be very pathetic.  The police, however,  had grave doubts as to the existence of  the missing Mr. Fisher, and so strong  were the views of  the  department on  this point that Mrs. Fisher was ordered  out  of  town  on   short  notice.     Since  then all the evidence that  has come to  light has   confirmed  the  opinion   that  the woman was simply a clever beggar  of more than  usual , ability,   and   that  she had been   working  the  public   all  over the northwest on the   same   plan.  The latest report of her rascality comes  from Greenwood, where  she  was successful in getting* $27.50 out of the men  employed at the Mother   Eode,   not  to  mention -what she got  at other properties oyer that promising camp.  STILL   COUNTING.  We noted the other 6.slj the Vancouver World's concession, at last, of 19  straight Opposition seats as a result of  the elections so far held. We by no  means conceded, though, that the  World was justified in claiming, in  prospectu, the two Cassiar seats, so as  to bring the Government up even with  the Opposition. As has been before  noted, the chances are against the  Government getting any support from  Cassiar. One of the three candidates  in the field, McTavish, is straight Opposition ���;' another, Clifford, is Inde-  dendent, and has stated that he will  support the party which is able to carry  ���**  on the government (he could not enable  the Turner-Pooley-Dunsmuir combination to do so, even by voting with  that side) ; the third candidate, Captain Irving, has never been a servile  Turner supporter and his present leanings are known to be more toward the  present Opposition which, as the new  Government he is almost certain to  support. There is mighty little sunshine, therefore, to be extracted for the  government out of the Cassiar cucumbers. The distinct prospect, on the  other hand, is that after the Cassiar  elections the government will find  itself, even if it should manage to hold  its two " independents," in a hopeless  minority of four. Decency and self-  respect would certainly dictate, as the  Ottawa Journal has pointed out, that  the Turner government should resign  without more ado.���Columbian.  Was the Ballot Secret ?  Was the ballot secret ? is the question that is troubling five of the Greenwood aldermen just now. At the last  meeting of the city council applications were received for the position of  city clerk, made vacant by the resig-nation of Duncan Ross. There were four  applicants. A vote was taken'by ballot and when these were counted Taylor  was found to have been the unanimous  choice   of   the   aldermen.    If  011I3' one  held voted for some of the other applicants the matter could have been satisfactory explained, but now the ballot  in council votes may be considered a  failure.  Chinamen are again placer mining  at the junction of Rock creek and Jolly  Jack's creek, but with what success it  is as useless as ever to enquire.  a Business  11  fifi.    o      ��      ��  A Typewriter is a Necessity.

The projected line is to leave the line  of the Spokane Falls and Northern pre-  sumabl3' in the vicinity of Kettle Falls,  go up the ICettle valley, cross into  British Columbia, follow the valley for  about 10 miles in British Columbia  territory, then cross back into the  reservation, still following the valley,  and once more cross into British Columbia, touching and tapping the rich  Boundar3r Creek country. Mr. Corbin  made application to the last Dominion  parliament for the charter in British  Columbia but he was bitterly opposed  by the Canadian Pacific and finally  defeated.  Now  that Mr.   Corbin   has  sold  out  his interests   in   the S. F. & N. sj'stem  and connecting*  lines, the  supposition  is   that   he   has   an   agreement   with  President Hill to construct this line, or  to construct   it   for  himself,  probabl3r  the   latter.      By   a   chang*e   of   route  pointed out b3r Mr. Corbin in an   interview published in  the   Spskesman-Re-  view  some  months ag-o, he   could take  the line across the reservation into Republic camp before starting it north to  British Columbia.    In this manner the  road would touch not 011I3*  the  rapidly  developing* and   wealtl^*  region of the  north   half   of    the   reservation,   but  would also  furnish   an   outlet  for  the  ores of the  Boundary Creek  camps in  British   Columbia.      Mr.    Corbin   has  gone   to   New   York.    This   announcement would  indicate   that perhaps he  will soon be in   the   Canadian   capital.  Speculation is aroused b3* his new  application. Wh.3r he should make it  in the face of his former defeat is  hardly understood, unless he has received new assurances of support.  LOWRY   ON   BROOKLYN.  New   Denver   Eedge :    Bill   Parker  came into  this country several years  ago and staked out a large   amount of  hard   luck.    Two   years   ago   he   discovered some fine   clay   opposite  Deer  Park and   pre-empted   the  land   about  it.    The  railroad people   picked   upon  his ground for their   headquarters during the construction   of   the road from  Robson to Penticton and Parker'called  his   townsite   Brooklyn.      The   crowd  flocked in and  changed Parker's name  from Bill   to  Mr.    A   month   ago   the  shore line was  dotted  by   a  few tents  and   Parker's   original   cabin.      Now  there   are ten hotels ready for business  and five more building*, and nearly  all  lines   of    business     are    represented.  Schools of black jack   and horse poker  have   been   established   and   sleej)   is  scarce in the town.    Brooklyn is   swift  but   a   mushroom.    Peterson   of  Trail  opened   up  the   first  hotel,   and   in   a  short time raked in $3,000.    Everybody  wanted to drink, and   the3r  lined up at  the bar as thick as editors in Paradise.  The town needs a postoffice.    Mail is  now brought in a gunny sack from Robson,   dumped   into   boxes   in   front of  Parker's cabin, where every man sorts  the mail and picks out what belongs to  him.    Parker has   a sign displa3*ed on  which is   painted:  "No   Chinese   need  land."   Major Blackmer, who has been  adicted   to   the   newspaper habit   for  several 3j-ears, has charge of  the town-  site.    Brookl3rn is a hot town, and only  a few of the   inhabitants   drink water.  There are plent3r of business people  there now and a few more will spoil  the effect of the million dollars that is  to be expended in the vicinit3r during  the next Year.  F. W. Mclvaine. R. Stuart; R. H.  Bergman and Jno. M3rers finished  work on the Hecla in Wellington camp  this week. In ail $300 has, been expended in developing the claim this  season, consisting of a 20-foot shaft  and 40 feet of crosscutting. A strong  lead was uncovered, believed^ to" be  the same as that in the Winnipeg.  The Hecla will be crown g*ranted this  fall.  AVAUNT/THE GOLDEN DREAM.  The most stupendous effort  of modern times to revive the ancient  dream  of the alchemist has g*one   the  way  of  all the earth.    Brice's   Chicag*o  manufactory of gold has failed.    It  was,   of  course, " on the threshold of   success,"  but it was a success that   did   not  succeed.    A few months   ago  it  was  announced that one E. C. Brice   had  discovered the art of making gold  out of  antimon3'-, through   the   application of  natural principles.    It could   be manufactured for fifty cents   on   the   dollar,  and there   was  millions  in the  enterprise, even if the first cost was  great.  A building and plant  were   erected   in  Chicago   at   a   cost  of  $20,000,   people  subscribing  liberally   for  stock.    The  value of stock rose from $10 a  share to  $85, and men of moderatesmeans almost  tumbled over themselves  in   an   effort  to get an interest in the scheme to outwit   Almighty   God   and   create  gold.  Now comes the report of the  total   collapse of the enterprise.    Brice is  prostrated with grief over  his   inability to  manufacture gold after the machinery  is all ready to   start   up,   and   the   machinery is prostrated with debt because  Brice is not able to start up.    The subscribers to the stock fund   are   presumably financially prostrated. The dream  is at an end.    Nature will still hold its  monopoly in the  art  of  creating gold,  and the festive goldbug has  ceased to  worry over a glut in the market.  FaJse to the Flag but True to the Cause.  Anglo-Saxon unit3* has found true  disciples among* those British sailors  who have deserted from her majesty's  ships at Esquimalt.  Perhaps these sailors have heard or  read that the Stars and Stripes and the  Union Jack are now practicalfy one  flag*. Accordingly they desert, and  they tnus practice what their betters  preach.  British orators   desert   their  ancient  prejudices to   shout   for Anglo-Saxon  unity in after dinner speeches. British  sailors on the Canadian station desert  the old flag* to fight for Anglo-Saxon  unity on the high seas.���Telegram.  J. P.
