About seven months ago W. H.  Ivenny, of Waidnei, Idaho, bonded  the Cat mi claim, for a figure at that,  time not general^' known by the public. It is t>aid that Lenny is in the  employ of the Bunker Hill and Sulli-.  van people, d.nd also believed to be interested 111 the deal is R. E. L. Brown.  This is a matter of teally little interest,  sufficed that it is known that ample  capital is at the back of the  undertaking. On. Monday the first  payment of 10 per cent on the Carriii  bond fell due and was piomptly paid.  Theu the same gentleman, represented  in Boundary Cieek by S. A. Easton,  the supenntendent of the Gold Drop,  bonded the Butcher Boy claim, which  is the west extension of the Carmi  claim and on the same ledge. The  fig-tuc represented in the bonding of  these two claims is said to be over $50,-  000.  THE DFVKI.OPMENT.  Fioni S. A. Ejaston, who is superintending the woik of development on  these pioperties, the following particulate were obtained- The claims  aie located 35 miles from Rock Creek;  up the West Folk of the Kettle river.'  The vein is quaiti carrying galena, in  which the gold values are piincipally  found. It measuies fiom two to six  feet and has been traced foi the full  evtent of the two claims, viz 3,000 feet.  This has been done by systematically  tienching the giound, as only in one  place, that of a high bluff was the vein  exposed by nature. A force of seven  men devoted most of the past seven  months to this work and their prospecting has proved the-'existence of three  well defined ore chutes. ������'  Work has now started in the permanent development of the property. On  the Carmi an incline double compartment shat 4,}<x9 feet in the clear has  been started. This shaft is now down  40 feet. For the present work is being  done by hand. The values are said to  be fairly uniform, running from ��12 to  $40 in gold. It is proposed to do some  more surface work on the Butcher  Boy, but the main development of the  two claims will be confined to the  Carmi. The property was owned by  James C. Dale and "James Kerr, of  Greenwood. .  IN CENTRAL CAMP-  F. W. Groves, P. L. S., has returned  to the city . after completing- the survey on the Golden Dollar in Central  camp. This property belongs to Randolph Stuart et al.  On the No. 7 the shaft house, bunk  and boarding houses and office building have been constructed. Work will  shortly start in the development of the  mine." The Central camp wagon road  is nearly completed so that machinery  may soon be hauled to the property,  Shafts are being sunk on both the  Norfolk and New York claims, adjoining the No. 7. These two properties  are being developed by the London  and B. C. Goldfields, the parent company that purchased theYmir mine, in  Ymir camp, and the Whitewater mine  in theSlocan, and promoted' the companies now controlling the same. J.  Roderick Robertson is the general  manager, and S. S. Fowler, M. E., consulting engineer. The head office of  the company in the province is at Nelson.  IN GREENWOOD CAMP.  The 40 horse power boiler and parts ,-  for the Gold Drop mine in Greenwood  camp^have^ gone up to the mine and  are now being'installed. With this  machinery came three machine drills,  so the work of development after the  machinery is set up will be more rapid  than heretofore.  The payroll of the Dominion Copper  company now has 60 men on it. Development work is progressing satisfactorily on the Brooklyn, Stemwinder  and Rawhide claims, owned by the  company.

H/SFERRY & CO,,  ���eet,     i>     ,< .    r>      Greenwood, B.  r-Doer  /���  Superintendent McEntire, of the  Review mine, came over from Myers  creek the first part of the week. He  reports the drift on the second level is  in 50 feet and the face has seven feet  of solid quartz, between well defined  walls. This is the first time that both  walls on the Review have been encountered, as before they followed  along the footwall, both in the upper  level and in the sinking of the winze  from which the second level is run.  The superintendent is of the opinion  that they arc drifting in ore between  as two perfect walls as cotikl be found  in the country. The boarding house  has been completed aud is occuuied by  a force of seven men. This force is to  be largely increased the first of the  year. The Review and Bird claims belonging to the company have just been  s.irveye.l preparatory to application  being made for patent.  George B. Meachem,of lOmtreal, has  a  force  of   12   men at wo: 'a on the Poland China, which he   recently bonded.  For    himself    and   his Montreal   asso-  {�����js> I ciates Mr. Maechcin has purchased out-  ^y! right  some   IS   odd  claims   in the dis-  -   trict.

On the Ah There claim, adjoining  Greyhound, in Deadwood camp, they,  are taking out some excellent looking  pyrrhotite ore from the cross-cut being  run from the bottom of a 50-foot shaft.  On the surface the ore body is said to  measure 200 feet in width. A shaft  was sunk 50 feet and a cross-cut is now  being run in an easterly direction to  prospect the ground. No values have  aa yet been obtained from the new  sir>ke. The Ah There is under bond  to George Leyson, who started the development on ihe 4th of October, with  a force of three men.  In doing- surface exploration work on  the St. Lawrence, foreman Peterson  and his three men have uncovered '  what is said to be a most promising  body of ore, measuring from 18 to 20  feet solid. The surface work consists  of trenching! and some 60 feet of work  has been accomplished. The property  was purchased last winter by Charles  Hoffman, a Spokane broker, from J.  Fisher. A company was formed known  as the Deadwood Gold Copper Mining  Co., to acquire the claim, and the  board of directors include Ed. Dyer,  president of the Exchange National  bank, W. J. C. Wakefield, a prominent  attorney and president of the Republic  mine, George Dodson, jeweler, all of  Spokane, and James Fisher, of Greenwood.  The Morrison Mining Company, of  Spokane, is to be re-organized. This  company owns the Morrison mine in  Deadwood camp, but has exhausted its  treasury fund and work during the progress of re-organization has been closed  down. Superintendent F. H. Oliver is  authority for the statement that  Montreal capital was behind the proposed new company. The old company,  incorporated under the laws of Washington had a capital of 51,000,000. It  is likely that this will be increased to  SI,500.000 in the new company to be  formed under the laws of the province.  9  6  <9  t0  ^^juiw*-  Ai_i��A������*��kfe  ����iteSi.

At Nelson They Talk of It���Construction  Items���More Power Wanted���What Railroad Officials are Doing.  While nothing has eyer appeared in  the press that would indicate any interest on the part of the Canadian  Pacific railway to make Smelter  Junction at Trail,divisional point, railroad men, who make the junction their  headquarters, are not afraid to admit  that it is the case. In conversation  with a well known superintendent, the  Times man was informed that Trail  would certainly become the divisional  point for everything west of the river.  Smelter Junction has ample room for  all necessary trackage, etc. The company have only recently completed a  five-stall engine house and repair shop.  With those at Vancouver and Revel-  stoke, these shops take third place in  size of any divisional point repair  shops. It will not be long before Trail  will boast of a further substantial payroll among the railroad employes at  that point. The new shops give additional employment for 25 men.  Since the above information was obtained a special dispatch from the Nelson correspondent of the Spokesman-  Review notes the proposed improvements to be made by the C. P. R. at  Nelson. It is true that the company  have spent considerable money in and  around Nelson improving its trackage  and other facilities for the better handling of its immense freight tonnage.  , Bt it is hardly likely that the company, in view cf the recent extensive  improvements being made at Trail for  repair shops, will, for some long time  to come, go to work and construct additional shops at Nelson, since Cran-  brook and Trail are now in a position  to care for all work that needs to be  done at home. Nelson might become  a divisional point���but it will be in  name only.  nelson's claims.  The Nelson correspondent's view on  the subject are reproduced:  ' The vote on the by-laws submitted  to the rate-payers practically assures  the future position of Nelson as a  divisional point on the Canadian Pa-  pacific railway, with all that it entails.  The by-law in question authorizes the  closing of certain streets and alleyways, in return for which and certain  other minor considerations, the big  Canadian railway has agreed to make  Nelson the divisional point for this  ; eotion and to erect the necessary  s:;ops, etc, These streets and alley-  v,-ay:s, by reasoti of the nature of the  ground in that portion of the town  practically exist only on the map, but  their formal closing was necessary to  enable the railway company to go  ahead with the contemplated improvements and make room for the repair  shops, round houses and yard accom  modations indispensible for-a divisional point of such importance as  Nelson will inevitably be in this  rapidly growing country.  High Canadian Pacific railway  officials recently assured the city'  council that they contemplated the expenditure of SS0,000 here in making the  necessary improvements.  Since last spring the company has  spent not less than $20,000 in Nelson,  chiefly in double tracking its line on  the water front, in building sidings,  and generally increasing its formerly  very poor yard accommodations. This  step was rendered urgently necessary  by the great increase of traffic consequent on the opening of the Crow's  Nest Pass road."  NOTES OF CONSTRUCTION.  The grading on the differnt spurs being constructed by P. Welch & Co. is  all practically completed and track  laying and surfacing is being pushed  forward ss rapidly as possible. The  steel for the Deadwood spur will be  only laid for the present, four miles  from town. At this point some trestle  work has to be built. In the meantime  the tracklaying force will be put on  the Greenwood camp spur, which has  already been laid for five miles from  Eholt, and of this distance four miles  has already been surfaced. The B. C,  spur, two and a half miles in length,  is completed, with the exception of surfacing. Between the Greenwood and  Deadwood spurs the crews will alternate in tracklaj'ing during the construction of the different trestles. The  The contractors have on their pay  rolls an average of 150 employes daily.  The new Greenwood passenger depot is about completed, all that now  remains is the finishing touches of the  plasterer and painter. This work completed gangs of men will immediately  start the construction of depots at  Grand Forks and Eholt.  The several section houses along the  line of the C. & W. are all Hearing  completion. Both the Greenwood and  the Baker creek section houses are now  occupied. The Baker creek section  house is seven miles east of Cascade.  It is now said that the building of  the new depot at Grand Forks has been  indefinitely postponed. What's in the  wind ?  MOKE ENGINES NEEDED.  Even with the assistance of engines  502 and 497 that were recently put on  the C. & W. branch to assist in the  moving- of the vast quantity of freight  from West Robsdn, really little headway is being made. Impatient merchants and others waiting for freight  should  not let  up their demands for a  better service until thoy have the  satisfaction of knowm ���; that more  engines have been placed on this  branch to accommodate the business.  However, everything cannot be done  in a day and doubtless the officials are  just as much worried over the problem  of moving the freight with some degree of rapidity as are the anxious  consignees. ,  RAILROAD  PERSONALS.  Pat. Welch, the railroad contractor  has gone to Spokane on a visit.  Roadmaster R. H. McCoy is kept  busy these days looking after numerous small rock slides,,on the Columbia  & Western, caused by rain and snow,  that has softened up the ground con  siderably.  L. M. Rice, resident engineer of construction, has been forced to go to> the  Harrison Hot Springs for his health.  If he recuperates sufficiently, it is probable that he ' will spend Xmas in  Seattle.

The  "Judge."   as   his  fellow   citizens-delight   to   call him,  came over from; Ghesaw; with George  B.  Mechem, of Montreal, who is  now  largely iuterested in the mines of the  camp,  and spent  the first part of the  week in Greenwood.    "'There has been  a large amount of building going . on  and within the past few days some of  the new buildings have been occupied,  The new three-story  hotel building- is  all furnished and opened for business.  This hotel  is- not only a credit to the  town, but to the whole of the Colville  Indian reservation.    It is doing a good  business and every room finds a nightly, occupant.    The   Chesaw   Trading  company's new block  is finished and  the company have, moved their stock  of goods in.    The  ground floor is used  by the company for their largely growing business and lias also an office  for  the   postmaster.    The   townsite   company have taken  possession   of their  new   office  which   is a suitable frame  structure,   There  are other buildings  going up and business is good.    The  Myers creek district is now connected  with the outside world by a   long  distance   telephone   service.     There are  many strangers in  town looking over  the camp  and quite a  few Greenwood  citizens are interested in the welfare  of   the   place,   as   it  was Greenwood  money that first took hold of the-town-  site.    With the surrounding  mines being   opened  up,  and the fact that the  reservatieu    will,    during    the   early  months   of   the  new year,  be thrown  open to homestead settlement, I see no  reason why Chesaw should not become  a very thriving town."  the remarkable advance that real  estate has made within the last  eighteen months. "I have always  kicked myself good and hard, when I  think of the excellent chance I had to  make a big clean up in real estate, if I  had invested here eighteen months  ago," he said. "At that time a friend  of mine particularly urged me to bii3r  some business lots on Copper street.  Then I could have purchased lots from  $250; to $350, today I find that the same  property could not be obtained under  $2,000 a lot. If thatis not big. enough  profit I don't Know what is."

A cordial  invitation is extended to all sojourning- breth-  ern. H. B. Mnxubi: N.G.  Jas. Kekk, Rec. Sec.  "Yes, there is considerable interest  being manifested in the coming civic  elections over in Grand Forks," said  Mayor Lloyd A. Manly of that city.  "There is a lot of smoke, but little fire.  No, I cannot say yet whether I shall  be a candidate for re-election. That is  a matter I must leave -in the hands of  my friends. So far as Grand Forks is  concerned business is good. Take for  instance the smelter pay roll, this will  give you some idea of what money is  being spent in town, it was $17,500 for  November. The smelter has a large  number of employees at work, both on  the works and the flume. Porter Bros,  have the contract for the reconstruction of the dam and they are making it  a most substantial piece of work. The  combined city and smelter power station also employs a large force of men.  The stone foundations are being built.  This building will be 130 feet in length  and when finished will be equipped  with the most modern electrical machinery that can be purchased."  Mayor Manly is largely interested in  the Morrison mine in . Deadwood camp  and before returning home he, in company with F. H. Oliver and J. Morrison, went, out to the mine. He expressed himself well satisfied with the  showing and his investment in the  property.  W. R. Williams, the accountant of  theDominion Copper company, limited,  vyas down from Phoenix; this week;  and tells an amusing experience oh  himself. Williams was recently elected  a fire warden, and in the course of his  official duties had occasion to call the  attention of a certain drug merchant  to the unsafety condition of his  chimney, at the same time instructing  him to remove the same and build a  new one. Next morning when the  gentleman that measures six-foot-eight  in his stockings, arose from his slumbers he immediately lit his stove and  during the period it took to get the  room to a sufficient temperature to take  his morning bath, tnrned into bed  again. His attention, however, was  soon forcibly attracted to the fact that  the roof of his abode was on (ire���  through, of course, a badly constructed  chimney. Now the drug merchant has  the. laugh on the fire warden and reminds him of an old proverb that is  time worn, but .applicable to this case,  about "those who throw stones while  living in glass houses, etc."  a *  *   ���' . .    . ���  M. S. Parry, of Nelson, the representative in Southern British Columbia  of the Confederation Life, has been  spending the past week in town. He  says that business has been exception  ally good and that he has written  several thousands of insurance on the  lives of some of Greenwood's best  citizens. In a reminiscent moment, to  a coterie of friends at the Hotel Armstrong, he told them of a little bit of  history that opened the crowds eyes to  An   Inside Copper Street Lot Sold for $2.-  700.  Indications point to a better market  in real estate transactions. During  the holidays it is natural that business  in this line should be quiet. People  are not thinking of investments, but  have to put some little of their money  in use, to make others happier. The  largest sale of business property recorded last week was for an inside lot  on Copper street. It is believed by the  broker making the deal that it is also  the largest price ever paid for an inside lot. Arthur Mowat sold lot 24,  block 12J on Copper street for 52,700.  The property was purchased by a recent arrival in the city, who it is said,  intends to   erect  ajbuilding- there on.  ^iiiuiiii[iiiiiiiUiyiiuiiiyiiiiiiiiiiiiaiiiiiiiaiiiiiiiiiii>f  CABLE ADDRESS.

Gkeeting.���The citizens of Greenwood and  Boundary Creek  appreciate  the importance of your  visit  and  endeavored to entertain and interest you.  You said you  were astonished  at our  wonderful      mineral     resources    and.  charmed by our hospitality.   We believed your statements were honestly  made    and   that   you   enjoyed    your  visit    as     much      as    we      enjoyed  having you with us.    The excursion is  of greater importance  than  the mere  exchanging of amenities.   Its influence  should be provincial (using the word  in its broad sense), not sectional.    You  enthused over a direct  railway to the  coast not merely  because such a railway would  benefit us, but because you  thought, it would  benefit   yourselves.  If your visit is to influence the upbuilding of this great  province,  you  must  look beyond the  interests of |Victoria  and Vancouver.    When we ask for representation thathas been denied us for  years, will'you help us ? - When we demand those  things  that  belong to us,,  although   they   may   not   interest   or  benefit you,  will  you  help  us?   The  mining districts  of Southern British  Columbia never asked for anything but  justice,   but   our   efforts    hava   been  thwarted by you gentlemen of the coast.  You thonght that  you were the whole  province and  we  were not worthy of  consideration.     Now   that   you   have  visited us and have become acquainted  with our  possibilities and our requirements, will you take a broader view of  provincial affairs ? We hear your shouts  of acclaim when  a scheme is on foot  to enable you to  secure  the business  .we built up  without   your  assistance,  but when you were njt directly interested you never raised a finger to help  us when  we  needed   your assistance.  If the coast and the interior are to be  drawn   more   closely   together    there  must be actions as well as words.

THE  BANK   OP  CUSTOMS HOUSE.  The remarks in the Times last week,  relative to the postoffice,   apply with  equal force to the customs department.  There is  no disguising  the fact that  the department at Ottawa   has  been  too slow to appreciate the needs of the  rapidly growing towns in   the  mining  district.   The  red-tape   methods that  are  tolerated  in  the east are entirely  unsuited  for  conditions  in  the west.  Take the Greenwood customs office for  instance.    Mr.   McCutcheon   was  appointed   inland   revenue   officer   at a  modest salary.   In addition he was appointed preventitive officer in connection with the customs.    For this work  he was to receive  a salary of $25 per  month.   Instead of having   the work  of such an officer he was forced  to do  the duties of a regular customs officer.  The business increased so rapidly that  in order to keep up with the work Mr.  McCutcheon   is at  his desk 16 hours  a day.    All this has to be done for the  princely salary of of $25 per month!  Greenwood should be  made a subport  immediately.   The   salary   should  be  commensurate with the responsibilities  and duties of the office, and sufficient  assistance should be furnished the collector to insure a prompt service to the  public.   It is a mistake to make haste  slowly   in  dealing  with departmental  affairs in the west.  Established in 1836. .  Incorporated by Royal Charter.

THEdefer.t of the Grcsr.way government should teach the Liberals a  salutary lesson. If they fight, among  themselves instead of fighting the  enemy, defeat should be expected. In  the last general election Ontario  Liberals almost lost the fight for a  similar rrason. Instead of working  they did nothing but prate about their  glorious record. The Conservatives  worked hard and almost won. In  Manitoba while the Siftons, and the  Martins, and the Richardsons were  squabbling among themselves, the  Conservatives, led by Hugh John McDonald,Sir Charles Tupper and others,  fought together. The result should not  surprise anyone. A house divided  against itself cannot stand. The defeat of the Green way government has  more than a local significance. It  shows the weakness of the party in  the Dominian. The party is not under  that discipline which Sir John McDonald always exercised over his followers,    Liberals are allowed to wash  F. T.

Hector McRae, the Rossland /mining  operator and the representative, of the  I/Oiidon  and. Canada Syndicate, spent  a few: days in town last week in con  nection with the affairs of the Boundary Creek Mining' and Milling company, in which his syndicate has a controlling interest.     He expresses himself   well   satisfied with  the development work   being prosecuted   on the  Gold Bug, one of the group of 16 claims  owned by the company  in Providence  camp.   At the head of the L,ondon and  Canada   Syndicate   are   some   of the  brightest    newspapermen    connected  with the leading financial journals of  the United Kingdom; stock brokers on  the L/ondon exchange and mining promoters.    When a company  has on its  directorate a combination, such as  the  syndicate  has,  it augurs well for the-  financial   standing   it  can command.  In  the syndicate  represented  by Mr.  McRae, are J. W. Clark,   editor of the  Financial News; Sir "William Ingram,  at the head of the Illustrated  London'  News; his brother Charles Ingram,also  a  director of the same paper; Lyional  W. '.Harris,   stock    broker;   Theodore  L/Uimley, Thomas Howard  and   many  others  who  command the attention of  the financial markets of the world.  The Boundary Greek Mining! and  Milling company has had its-ups and  downs in securing the necessary money  to open up, its extensive holdings, but  now that capital,- as represented in the  syndicate, has the control of matters,  development of the claims will go forward with an assurance that money  will not be stinted to make the propr  erties self producing and divirlend-  paying. ���''.'  HICH ORB SHIPMENTS.  It is .over,._ three years ago that the  , D.'A.> one of the group, made its first  shipment of four and a half tons. This  shipment was sent to the Everett  smelter under great difficulty, having  to be packed on horseback to.Boundary  Falls and from there to Marcus by  wagon. At the smelter this ore netted  the owners $103 in gold and 74 ounces  in silver to the ton. Just recently a  second shipment of pre was made.to  the Trail smelter. This ore came from  the -Gold Bug claim that is now being  energetically exploited by a force of 10  men under Superintendedt\N. LVeese.  The correct returns have just been received by. Consulting Engineer J.  L<eckie from the smelter and show the  net weight of the ore shipped to be 28,-  897 pounds, with a value of $111.55 per  ton, or a total for the shipment of SI,-;  611.73 net to the Company. The freight  and smelter charges amounted to $12  per ton.. Tho values contained in this  ore were divided as follows: Gold, 2.22  ounces; silver, 131,20 ounces, and lead  14.40 per cent.  ON THE GOLD BUG.  In company with Hector McRae and'  D.  A. Holbrook,  a Times-representative visited the properties of the company.   The present development consists of two tunnels being run onc the  Gold Bug claim.    The original work  done on this claim consisted of 110-foot  shaft, ��� which at a few feet below the  surface cut through the vein.    At  the  100-foot level a crosscut was started to  catch the ledge on its dip,  but the inflow of water drove the men out.    This  shaft and crosscut workings will shortr  ly be drained by the tipper  of the two.  tunnels now being driven.    The upper  tunnel is in 25 feet following the course  of the vein.    The lower tunnel, some  80 feet below the upper, is in 20 feet.  The   Gold   Bug   claim    is   admirably  situated for tunnel work,   and  as the  main track of the Columbia and Western railway passes at the' foot of the  monntain,   immediately   beneath   the  dumps, it will  be  an easy matter to  send   ore down   to  a spur  by a cable  tramway, not   to   exceed  400 feet in  length.   The shipment mentioned was  sent down in sacks  with  a block and  pulley on a rope  cable direct to the  cars, .-'���������  SURFACE WORK.     '  On the surface the Gold Bug ledge  has been opened up in several places  by cuts. The ledge lays in a diorite  formation, and in places takes the  form of a blanket vein, but in the upper tunnel has every appearance of  straightening up. From one of the  open cuts, at only a f��w feet below the  surface, and . measuring probably 20  feet square, the ore for the -last shipment of 401 sacks was taken and since  then Superintendent L-eese has sacked  over 300 more.   The ore here measured  from a few inches to as wide as four  feet, and as the-smelter returns show  was extremely rich. In places the ore  is solid galena; it is also found as a  chalcopyrite mixed with galena and  where the vein pinches it becomes  very , silicious, carrying considerable  native silver. Few mines can show'  such handsome specimens of ore.  OTHER DEVELOPMENT.  Considerable work has been done on  the other, claims, notably on the G. A.  R.    This claim is developed by a 70-  foot, shaft with  a crosscut of 15 feet.  It will require about 20 feet more to  encounter the ledge.: As on the Gold  Bug  claim   these workings had to be  abandoned on account of water:   For  the first 15 feet the ledge was followed  down on the perpedicular,  but at this  point it dipped out of the  shaft.   The  ore is similar to the Gold Bug and just  as rich.    The D. A. claim  lies up hill  from the Gold Bug.   It was from this  claim that'the'first shipment was'made  three years  ago.   The ore was taken  from a surface open cut.   The development of the claim was done by tunnel  and shaft,but work, has been suspended  on this  and  the other claims with  view to concentrating development on  the Gold Bug.     On the O. B. claim the  ore  is a quartz  with gold values predominating.   The   vein  will   average  three feet with values from $4 to $170  in gold,   .The development consists, of  a shaft down-40 feet.-   On each of the  other claims the work done is principally open cuts.  At the junction of Eholt and Boundary creeks, at the north end of the  property, the company have 320 acres  of level and bench land, that in time  will become a magnificent residential  addition to the townsite of Greenwood.  There is an abundance of clear spring  water for domestic use and to generate  ample power to run all necessary machinery required in the development of  the company's several properties,    y  IN   CONTROL.  F/ighteeri months ago Hector McRae  of Rossland, the representative of the  London and Canada;Syndicate secured  control of a majority of the stock in the  Boundary Creek Mining and Milling  company, under an agreement that his  syndicate would develop and open up  the property. V The work now being  done is in accordance with this agreement, arid now that the railroad is here  development on some of the other  claims will be undertaken at an early  date.

A   TALK   ABOUT   ITS   RICH   ORES-  j. Hugo Ross, a Toronto Broker, Tells the  Times of the Development���Promising Strike  on the Sailor���Rich Ore From the Waterloo.  Machinery Being Installed on Many Claims.  J. Hugo Ross, of Toronto, returned  here last Sunday from a flying visit to  Camp McKinney. Mr. Ross is the  secretary of the Sailor Consolidated  Mining and Milling company and  went expressly to McKinney to inspect  a new strike that had been reported on  the Sailor. "You can say that Camp  McKinney is full of life, the mines are  being energetically opened up and machinery is being installed on several  properties," he said to the Times man  at the Armstrong hotel. -'I venture to  predict that there will be as great a  rush into the the camp this winter as  there was last. At that time, it will  be remembered, Spokane operators  were jumping in and picking up all  available ground surrounding the Cariboo mine,, but there is just as good  ground left that it will pay any one to  open up." Regarding the strike on  the Sailor claim, he said that some  splendid ore was being taken out.  Some of the quartz was a dark blue,  not unlike the "Waterloo ore and some  was a white ore quartz similar to the  Cariboo with a good showingof galena  and iron sulphrets. fc He has some 50  pounds sent to the Toronto office of the  company. He could not state what  values were in the ore as it had not  been assayed in camp and 'the company's assay outfit had only just arrived.  THE SAILOR  CONSOLIDATED.  The Sailor claim is developed by a  shaft sunk to a depth of 85,feet. At  the 75-foot level they ru.ii a cross-cut  north 35 feet. This crosscut cut  through four ledges, measuring from a  foot to three feet in width. The three  foot ledge was the first encountered and  an easterly drift was run 40 feet. It  It was from this drift that the good ore  was now bjing-taken out. On the same  ledge west from the crosscut it had  also been drifted upon for 35 feet.  Throughout both drifts the quartz was  looking good. It is now the intention  of the management to continue the  sinking of the main shaft to a depth  of 165 feet and open up another level  at 150 feet. The company will also  install before spring a compressor  plant.  On the Rover, also owned by the  Sailor Consolidated, the shaft is down  40 feet, in what Mr. Ross describes as  fairly good looking ore. They are co-.i-  pleting the work necessary to obtain a  Crown grant, as it is upon this claim  that the company have laid out their  townsite.    They  have also completed  the work4Pf bringing the - water on to  the land for domestic use. A new two  story frame hotel has been completed  and will open up for business this week.  The company have on their payroll 20  employees.  RICH WATERLOO.  Mr. Ross visited the Waterloo and  speaks enthusiastically of the good  work being ddne'there. The' five-stamp  mill is in running order and the: next  clean.up will take place on the 15th of  the month. "They are going to add another set of five stamps and put on  machine drills. He visited the drifts  on the 65-foot level where stoping is in  progress. There is an abundance of  ore on the dumps and in the stopes  ready for milling. He was informed  that recent assays, obtained by a private individual went $333 in gold.  Speaking of the stock of this mine,  which Mr. Ross considers very low, he  called the reporters attention that. the  miners of McKinney, not only in the  Waterloo mine, but working on other  properties were investing their earnings in Waterloo.  MINNEHAHA MILL.  The completion of the 10-stamp mill  on the Minnehaha has been unavoidably delayed on account of the delay in  receiving all their machinery. Some  of the parts are yet enroute between  Penticton and the mine. The buildings are all up and everything is in  shipshape order to start when the balance of the machinery is installed.  Drifting is in progress onjboth the 95  and 190-fobt levels. Gn the upper level  they are upraising from one of the  drifts to the surface. From this portion good quartz is being taken.  KAMLOOPS  MACHINERY.  All the machinery, with the exception of the pump, which has just arrived, has been installed on the Kam  loops. This property adjoins the Minnehaha. When the pump is set up  work will be immediately resumed in  the sinking of the shaft. Rossland and  coast capital is largely interested in  the property, which is said to have the  Minnehaha vein.  THE LEMON  GROUP.  At the extreme end of the camp,  about two miles from the Cariboo is  the Lemon group of five claims. Omaha  men are putting np the money for the  development of the property. The  name of the company is the ' Lemon  Gold Mines of British Columbia. A  220-foot shaft with drifts has opened  up a splendid lot of ore and the company is putting a five stamp mill to  treat it.  OTHER  MINES.  Both the Little Cariboo and the  Shannon-Dolphin properties are being  developed. It isrepdrted that the Fon-  tenoy. in which the Dunsmirs of Victoria are interested, is also taking out  good ore. On the Dayton fraction,  owned by Greenwood parties and Hugh  Cameron, they have opened up a 10-foot  ledge that promises to become a big  mine.  Mineral Act 1896.  CERTIFICATE OF IMPROVEMENTS.

AGAIN IN HOT WATER  iEBER C. SHITH  OF THE GAZETTE.  Story of the Trouble as Told by a Former  Employe The Matter Now in the Courts.  Typographical Union Issues a Circular.  Other Labor Notes.  Eber C. Smith,  the one timfe publisher of the Rossland Record, and now  the publisher of the Daily Gazette of  Grand Forks,  has g-ot himself into a  peck of trouble with his , employes.    It  is a peculiar fact that Smith, when at  Rossland, was ever in  hot water with  somebody.    At times it was with  his  men,  then   again  he  used  to use the  columns of his sheet to besmirch the  character of some citizen.  " From Li.  Keefe,  one of the printers  who walked out of the Gazette office, a  Times man obtained the following- regarding- the trouble:   Pay day in the  office of the Gazette was supposed to  be on Monday.   Two weeks  ag-o the  past Monday, the men presented themselves as usual for their cheques and  were  told by Smith  that he did not  have the ready money and asked them  to* wait until the  first of the month.  One of the men, Hendrix, insisted upon  immediate   payment which Smith refused,  saying- he' did not have it, but  would have it on the first.   Hot words  passed   between   the two   and   Smith  ordered his employe to quit the   office.  The   other two men,  Grant, the foreman,   and  Keefe coming- to the conclusion that if he (Smith) could not pay  one   man he could  not pay them all,  they accordingly joined Hendrix  and  " went out. The men afterwards,"throug-h  Grant,   offered   to   return   to work if  Smith would g-ive them a written guarantee for their pay on the first.    This  Smith   refused   to   do,   and the   men  brought action to recover their money.  . The case-had a hearing- before Police  Magistrate Johnson,and Smith entered  a  counter-action for damag-es   which  ' Johnson considered   and referred the  whole case to the county court.  THE. CIRCULAR.  Tbe printers of Grand Forks and  their fellowmen in jthe other towns of  the Boundary Creek have formed a  Typographical Union and in connection with, the troubles in the Gazette  office have circulated the following-letter, which speaks for itself  To  the  labor  sympathizers  lumbia:  On the 27th day of November last the printers  employed in the office of the Daily Gazette, of  this city, Kber C. Smith, proprietor, walked  out on account of the non-payment of their  wag-cs. Mr. Smith absolutely refusesr.to pay  the men and has brought in a counter-claim oif  damag-es, based upon the action in leaving-him.  The office is, therefore, under union laws, an  unfair office.  Mr. Smith is also, if not the sole proprietor,  heavily interested in the'Pioneer, published at  Phoenix, B. C. {  Sympathizers with union principles are  earnestly requested to take cog-nizauce of the  above and act accordingly.  Grand"Forks Typographical Union.  possibly of Canada,, will shortly' be  entertaining- two of the most brilliant  representatives from the ranks of labor  that "England has produced, viz: James  Haslani, of the Miners' Federation,and  Alexander Wilkie; of the Associated  Shipwrights. They have already sailed  from London on their, way to Detroit  to attend the approaching convention  of the American Federation of Labor,  as fraternal deleg-ates representing- the  British Trades Union Congress.  A special dispatch from -New York  has the following; to say''. regarding-  their visit: "; ��� '.,'  The two visitors will be entertained several  daj'S by the'New York'labor unions previous to  tlieir  leaving-    for    the    Detroit   convention.  Messrs.  Haslani   and   Wilkie  are said  to   be  among-the most prominent and representative  labor leaders ever! sent to this country on  a  similar mission.   Mr.  Haslani, as secretary of  the Miners' Federation, was one of the directing- forces in the famous miners', strike in 1893,  thebig-gest labor fig-lit in  the history of Eng--  land, when more than 350,000 men were   out.  Mr. Wilkie is at present general secretary of  the AssociatcdJSliipwrights! Society, one of the  most conservative and  influential of  British  trades unions.   In 1877 he presented the working-men's side of the case in   the arbitration  proceedings Which ended the great strike and  lockout of the Clyde shipwrights.   His remarkably  able and efficient  conduct  of  the case  called forth the hearty commendation  of some  of the foremost members, of the Scottish bar  who represented   the  employers.    Since that  time he has been in  the front in every important question affecting- the interests of the ship,  builders, both on the Clyde and on the Tyne.  NO TROUBLE HERE.  of   British, Co-  "There is no reason to suppose that  the labor difficulties now paralyzing-  industry in the Slocan will affect  either Rossland or the Boundary country during- the coming- winter at least.  The conditions are different and labor  and. capital seem to be tolerably well  satisfied with their mutual relations.  But there is always dang-er of sympathetic disturbance, and on both sides  of the dispute there are those who have  been urging its initiation. But it is  unlikelyto occur, Sympathetic strikes  and lock-outs aggravate instead of lessen the ..disastrous effects [of labor  disputes, embitter relations between  employers and employed, and in the  interests of. labor itself are to be deprecated." This sensible utterance is  taken from the British Columbia Mining- Record.  Established 1802.

The congregation of the Presbyterian  church is called for a business meeting  to beheld in Miller's hall, Tuesday, 8  p. m. After the business session is  concluded a social evening will be  spent to which the members, adherents  and friends, of the congregation are invited to attend.    Admission free.  [NOTE :���To the clergy of the district The Times will be pleased to  publish every week information regarding- the services of the different  denominations. All we ask is that this  information be handed into the office  not later than Thursday afternoon of  each week.���Ed.]  Blake Wilson, general manager of  P. Burns & Co., was in town the past  week. He reports that a car-load of  turkeys from Smith's Falls, Out., was  received by his firm for distribution to  their branch stores in the Boundary  district. He thinks there will be no  chance for a turkey famine this Christmas,  Tonight the new Alhambra vaudeville theater will be opened to the public. Scene-painters and carpenters  have been working double shifts' the  past few days to have everything- in  order for the initial opening-, and a  good entertainment is promised to all  who attend. No objectionable features  are to be allowed,and the management  promises to give a distinctly high-class  vaudeville entertainment. Delphos  Laurence, favorably known in theatrical circles in the west, is the amusement manag-er, and himself an artist  of no mean ability. J   '   .  The talent secured to take part "in tonight's opening- are said to be artists  of exceptional merit arid cleverness in  their several parts. On the programme  will be found the following : William  McVey, a clever Irish comedian; Miss  Sue Blanchard, who has won her way  to fame in the vaudevilleline by a  singularly , sweet . and clear barytone voice and graceful deportment.  This is Miss Blanchard's third appearance in the west, coming- direct from  New York. Henderson and Ross are  known by many here as the "European  Novelty Stars." Their performance is  alwa3's up-to-date. To the-lover of the  banjo Miss Gertie Harrington will certainly make a hit-^-she is a performer  that few artists in her line can equal  and none surpass. Another sketch  team, always amusing and original,  are Harrison and Foster. The names  of those who are to take part augurs  well for the public patronage and success of thenew ���resort. C. A..Baldwin  takes charge as the general manag-er.;  He is well known here by a large circle  of friends. This is not, however, his  first experience in the vaudeville business, as he has been connected with  some of the best houses in the west.  Backing the whole undertaking- is A.  Branson, the genial proprietor of the  the Commercial hotel. The Company  leasing the building is known as the  Alhambra Hotel and Theater company.  THE ALHAMBRA. .     .  The Alhambra is a new three story  building, locatrd at the corner of Boundary avenue and Deadwood street. It  is a substantial structure, on a high  basement, and heated throughout by  hot water.. The wires for an electric  light service have also been put in. It  was built and is owned by W. S. Fletcher. The building aud lot represent an  investment of between 515,000 and $18,-  000, completed. Mr. Fletcher has leased the whole building to the Alhambra  Hotel and Theatre company.  HOW LAID OUT.  The building has been constructed  with a view to using the basement as  a restaurant; the first-aikl second floors  for the theatre proper: and the third  floor as an hotel. In size it is 50x95  feet. The front part of the basement  provides room for a large cafe, with  card and wine rooms, and the rear portion is fitted up for the dressing rooms  of the performers. The main entrance  on the first floor leads one directly into  the bar and office room. A side entrance takes the visitor up to the third  floor where the hotel proper is located.  Passing through the spacious barroom  on the first floor and at the corner op-  posire to the main autrance, is the  ticket office and entrance to the theatre.  The auditorium is well arranged and  with the balcony on the second floor  running around three sides, will easily  accommodate 700 spectators. Beneatli'  and opposite the stage is the orchestra  pit and on each side are large stage  boxes. The floor space s 50x40 feet.  The stage itself ' is a large one, a-necessity in these days of quick changing  vaudeville performance. The whole of  the third floor���the hotel portion���is  divided off into rooms and these are  now being suitably furnished. The  arrangement of the building should  prove satisfactory, both as a theatre  and as a hotel.  Where to Co and   What to Buy for Xmas  Presents.  One of the most attractive stores on  Copper avenue this week will be Miller  Bros., the pioneer jewelers and druggists. The firm is thoroughly, up-to-  date, as the most casual observer could  not fail to note, in the really fine display they have, both in the window  and in the show cases inside.        .^  There are holiday presents, of every  kind arid description, from the dintiest  of gold watches down to the smallest  and as useful silver thimble. There  are diamonds, costly but exquisite to a  degree, mounted and unmounted. One  show case is devoted to ' a magnificent  display of gold watches. In the front  window is a collection of silverware, including jewelry boxes, traveling cases,  comb and brush sets, "etc. There is  also a handsome array, of rings, including precious stones of every description. One's choice is, not limited/by  any means in a selection. The limit'  is only placed on the contents of the  purse, yet none would, begrudge the  prices asked by Miller Bros., for they  are most reasonable for a mining camp.  Justice caunot be done, in a few lines  to an accurate description of the Xmas  stock this' enterprising firm , has on  hand. To those looking for something  of every day use, not costly, yet appropriate at all seasons, what better could  be selected ' than a lether pocketbook  of the.-latest style. There is a case  filled with these useful articles. For  the house there are lamps, dainty, : silver mounted, just, the thing for my-  lady's room. Flower pots, from the  Orient make suitable and appreciative  gifts. In silverware there, are any  number of ideas to be selected'from',  and then too, Miller Bros, will engrave  the initial of the dear'one on any gift  selected���free of ���' cost. ' To those in  need of assistance in the selection of  Xmas gifts, the Times' can offer' no  better medium ' than, the courteous  gentlemen composing the:firm 'of''Mil/  ler Bros! and their equally efficient and  courteous staff.

Balderston Performs-Two Marriage  Ceremonies.  East Saturday Joseph H. Barnes and  Miss A. Carter were married by the  Rev. B. H. Balderston,'B. A., pastor of  the Methodist church.  On Monday evening,, at the parsonage, the reverand gentleman officiated  at a similar ceremony, uniting in marriage John Clarence Goupil, of this  city,: and Miss Delia Ea Rue, of Cheboygan, Mich. "Jack," as Mr. Goupil  is better known, by/scores of friends,  is an old-timer here and is also the  popular captain of the hose team of the  volunteer'fire department.  It was quite evident.to the coterie of  friends present at the marriage that  Jack was exceedingly nervous. 'In  fact, he admitted this afterwards, stating that he had got married on his  credit���as he forgot to slip the par-  sou the customary envelope. However, shortly after leaving the'pa'rson's  residence, the envelope suddenly  dawned upon his mind-and heforwith  returned to the scene of the marriage  and Straightened matters out.  Wednesday saw the consumation of  another deal for a property on the West  Fork of Kettle river. Representing  R. E. E. Brown, John Empey, of Greenwood, purchased outright from Alec  Wallace, et al., the Prince claim. This  claim overlapped the Washington,  claim on the south, one of a group owned by the Boundary & Beaverton Mining company���the r company promoted  by Mri Brown, and for fear that a dis-  pute'niight possibly arise in the future  Mr. Empey���'��� purchased the claim from  the owners for:S3,500*.  .". East summer six -claims, situated  near Beaverton were secured by Mr.  Brown for a sum aggregating $100,000.  Of these the Washington, Idaho and  Montana claims were "acquired by the  Boundary & Beaverton Mining company, and the Rambler,. Templer and  Columbia passed into the hands of the  Beaverton-Sulphide company. John  Empey is the superintendent of both'  companies. .<:.';  THE, DEVELOPMENT,  -Work was started early last summer :  with a force of-12 men developihg.the  Washington claim. A sha'ft-is. tobe  stink-on the main ledge to a depth of  100 feet. .It is now down 35 feet. This  big ledge was through ;the. summer  stripped for a distance of ,1,600 -feet  through two claims. It is said to av'er-  age,20 feet in width. The ore carries."  values in. gold, silver and copper. On  the Idaho claim a 50-fobit shaft has also  been sunk, at the :- iiitersectibn  of the big .ledge with what  appears" to be a ledge carrying'cbnsid-:  erable galena.  Work will shortly start in the development of the group 'owned by ^he  Beaverton-Sulphide: company. ;AJt present a small force' of in en are ereb'tirig  cabins and preparing everything' for  continuous ' work during the ' winter  months.  IN SKYLARK* CAMP.  A car-load of machinery has: arrived  for the Boundary Creek Mining Co.  The company owns the Last Chance in  Skylark camp for which the machinery  consisting- of boilers and ��� parts is now  on hand for delivery.  NEW DISCOVERY.  Superintendent Henry Shields reports a promising strik on the Gal-  conda mine in Smith's camp. While  driving the long cross-cut funnel,,an  unlooked for ledge of bluish quartz  carrying iron-pyrites was encountered,  in a distance,of 60 feet. East.accounts  say that the tunnel was driven through  if five feet and was still in ore.  LATE LOCAL NEWS-  Aid. David Beath and W. Gibson  left by toda3''s train to spend the holidays in the east.

[Note :���To the clergy of the district The Times will be pleased to  publish every week information regarding the services of the different  denominations. All we ask is that this  information be handed into the office  not later than Thursday afternoon of  each week.���Ed.]  Blake Wilson, general manager of  P. Burns & Co., was in town the past  week. Hg reports that a car-load of  turkeys from Smith's Falls, Ont,, was  received by his firm for distribution to  their branch stores in the Boundary  district. He thinks there will be no  chance for a turkey famine this Christmas,  Tonight the new Alhambra vaudeville theater will be opened to the public. Scene painters and carpenters  have been working double shifts the  past few days to have everything in  order for the initial opening, and a  good entertainment is promised to all  who attend. No objectionable features  are to be allowed,and the management  promises to give a distinctly high-class  vaudeville entertainment. f Delphos  .Laurence, favorably, known in theatrical circles in the west, is the amusement manager,; and himself an artist  of no mean ability.  .The talent secured to take parti in tonight's opening are said-to be artists  of exceptional merit and cleverness iri  their several parts. On the prbgramme  will be found the following: William  McVey, a clever Irish comedian; ��� Miss  Sue Blanchard, who has won her way  to. fame in the vaudeville line by a  singularly sweet and clear barytone voice and graceful deportment.  This is Miss Blanchard's third appearance in the west, coining direct from  New York. Henderson and Ross are  known by many here as the ','European  Novelty Stars." Their performance is  always up-to-date; To the lover of the  banjo Miss Gertie Harrington will certainly make a hit���she is a performer  that few artists in her line can equal  and/ none surpass. Another sketch  team, always amusing . and original,  are Harrison and Foster. The names  of those who are to take part augurs  well for the publip patronage and success of the new resort. C. A.'-Baldwin  takes charge as the general manager.  He is well known here by a large circle  of-���' friends. 'This is not, however, his  first experience in the vaudeville business, as he has been connected with  some of the best houses in the west.  Backing the whole undertaking is A.  Branson, the genial proprietor of the  the Commercial hotel. The Company  leasing the building is known as the  Alhambra Hotel and Theater company.  THE ALHAMBRA.  The Alhambra is a new three story  building, locatrd at the corner of Boundary avenue and Deadwood street. It  is a substantial structure, on a high  basement, and heated' throughout by  hot water.. The wires for an electric  light service have also been put in. It  was built and is owned by W. S. Fletcher. The building and lot represent an  investment of. bet ween $15,000 and $18,-  000, completed. Mr. Fletcher has leased the whole building to the Alhambra  Hotel and Theatre company.  HOW LAID OUT.  The building has been constructed  with a view to using the basement as  a restaurant; the first-and second floors  for the theatre proper and the' third  floor as an hotel. In size it is 50x95  feet. The front part of the basement  provides room for a large cafe, with  card and wine'rooms, and the rear portion is fitted up for the dressing rooms:  of the performers. The main entrance  on the first floor leads one directly into  the bar and office room. A side entrance takes the visitor up to the third  floor where the hotel proper is located.  Passing through the spacious barroom  on the first floor and at the corner op-  posire.to the main antrance, is the  ticketoffice and entrance to the theatre.  The auditorium is well arranged and  with the balcony on the second floor  running around three sides, will easily  accommodate 700 spectators. Beneath''  and opposite the stage is the orchestra  pit and on each side are large stage  boxes. The floor space s 50x40 feet.  The stage itself is a large one, a necessity in these days of quick changing  vaudeville performance. The whole of  the third floor���the hotel portion���is  divided off into rooms and' these are  now being suitably furnished. The  arrangement of the building should  prove satisfactory, both as a theatre  and as a hotel.  HOLIDAY GIFTS.  Where to Go and  What to Buy for Xmas  Presents.  One of the most attractive stores on  Copper avenue this week will be Miller  Bros., the pioneer jewelers and druggists. The firm is thoroughly up-to-  date, as the most casual observer could  not fail to note, in the really fine dis-;  play they have both in the window,  and in the show cases inside.  There are holiday presents of every  kind and description, from the dintiest  of gold watches down to the smallest  and as useful silver thimble. There  are diamonds, costly but exquisite to a  degree, mounted and unmounted. One  show case is devoted to a magnificent  display of gold watches. In the front  window is a collection of silverware, including jewelry boxes, traveling- cases,  comb and brush sets,, etc. ; There is  also a handsome array of,rings, including precious stones of every description. One's choice is not .limited by  any means in a selection. The limit  is; only placed ,on the contents of the  purse, yet none would ; begrudge the  prices asked ;by. Miller Bros., for they  are most reasonable for.a mining camp.  Justicecaunot.be done in a few lines  to an accurate description of the Xmas  stock this enterprising firm. has on  hand. To those looking for something  of every day use, not costly, yet appropriate at all seasons, what better could  be selected than a lether pocketbook  of the-latest style. There is a case  filled with these useful articles. For  the house there arelamps,; dainty, silver mounted, just, the thing for my  lady's room. Flower pots from the  Orient make suitable and appreciative  gifts. In silverware there, are any  number of ideas to be selected from,  and then too, Miller Bros, will engrave  the initial of the dear'one on any gift  selected���free of cost. To those in  need of assistance in the selection of  Xmas-gifts, the Times' can offer'no  better medium. ' than, the courteous  gentlemen composing the firm of Miller Bros; and their equally efficient' and  courteous staff.  ON THE TOST FORK.  PRINCE CLAIM SOLD FOR CASH.  AT HYMENS ALTAR.  Rev. B.H. Balderston Performs Two Marriage  Ceremonies.  Last Saturday Joseph H. Barnes and  Miss '������ A. Carter were married by the  Rev. B. H..Balderston, B. A., pastor of  the Methodist church.  On Monday evening^ at the parsonage, the'reverand gentleman, officiated  at a similar ceremony, uniting in marriage John Clarence Goupil, of this  city, and Miss Delia La Rue, of Cheboygan, Mich. "Jack," as Mr. Goupil  is better known, by scores of friends,  is an old-timer here and is also the  popular captain of the hose team of the  volunteer fire department.  It was quite evident;to the coterie of  friends present at the marriage that  Jack was exceedingly nervous. In  fact, he admitted this afterwards,,stating that he had got married on his  credit���as he forgot to slip the par-  sou the customary envelope. However, shortly after leaving the parson's  residence, the envelope suddenly,  dawned upon hismind-and he forwith  returned to the scene, of the marriage  and straightened matters out.  R. E. L.

It is said to average 20 feet in width. The , ore carries,  values in gold, silver and copper. On.  the Idaho claim a 50-foot shaft has also  been sunk, at the intersection  of the big ledge with what  appears to be a ledge carrying considerable galena.  Work will shortly start in the development of the group owned by' the  Beaverton-Sulphide cbiiipany.'A't present a small force of rtien.are erecting  cabins and preparing everything for  continuous ��� work during the ' winter  months.

Damage Suits.  Nothing of particular interest transpired at last Monday's council meeting.  Mayor Hardy occupied the chair; and  the following aldermen were , present :  Galloway, Fisher, Wood and Beath.  After the adoption of the. minutes  of the previous meeting the following  communications were read: From the  Gutta Percha Rubber company, Crane  & Co., G. Mitynard, Hon. J. Fred  Hume, J, R. Miller, C. F. Alston, W.  L. Leonard and a petition from the  Carpenters' Union and citizens generally, praying for the establishment  of a free public reading room.  Onjmotion, J. R. Miller was granted  ... permission   to place   two trap doors in  the sidewalk, in front of his block, providing that the openings were suitably  protected.        .  The clerk was instructed to answer  Crane & Co.'s letter, advising, that  gate valves and other waterworks supplies had beeen procured locally. The  other communications were filed.    v  FREE READING ROOM.  The mayor appointed Aldermen  Wood, Galloway and Beath a commit-  tae to look into the matter of the establishment of a free reading room, on  the lines prayed for in the petition,  signed by 340 residents of the city.'  Time was next taken up by the reading of accounts against the city. Two  weeks' accounts had accumulated, of  these the finance committee reported  favorably upon the following, which  were'ordered to be paid:  ACCOUNTS   PAID.  B. C. Gazette, $9; R. F. Coates, $30;  J. P. Myers Gray, .$16; Alex Curry. $24;  Sperry.& Co., $65; The Times, $15.50;  H. A. King & Co., S1.20';M cPhersori  Bros., $148.12; Root.

THE BY-LAWS.  By-law No. 37, for the establishment  of a lane or alley through blocks 7 and  12, was reconsidered, adopted and  finally passed; Alderman Fisher alone  voting in the negative.  The council then went into a committee as a whole to discuss by-law No.  38, granting a bonus of $3,600 to the  smelter department of the British Columbia Copper company; The by-law  was reported complete with amendments, and passed its third reading.  This by-law will come before the ratepayers for vote on Thursday, December 28th.  Alderman Galloway gave notice that  , he would introduce an  election by-law  at the next regular meeting.  A DAMAGE CLAIM.  Alderman Galloway reported that he  had investigated the accident sustained  by W. G. Gaunce, and advised that $125  be paid in full settlement. This was  the full amount claimed by Mr. Gaunce  in a letter addressed to the council,  under date of November 18, wherein  Mr. Gaunce set forth the cause of the  accident on October 16, described the  results and the painful injuries that  were inflicted upon him, and agreeing  to accept $125, in full settlement of all  claim he might have against the city.  On motion of Alderman Wood,seconded  by Alderman Beath, the treasurer was  instructed to pay Mr. Gaunce the  amount claimed, $125, in full settlement.  otii;::; n.-.:.:Acr, s:;its.  The clerk reported that the city had  been served with two writs. One from  Rendell & Smailes claiming $10,000,  and one from Miller Bros, for $5,000  damages, arising out of the lowering  of the street grade on Greenwood and  Copper streets. On motion the city  solicitor was instructed to defend the  two actions.  of a trip to the inland metropolis,  where accommodations are said to be  rather rough, decided to part company  with his friends (?) here.  The Kid, as he was commonly called  around the,. lock-up, was sent on an  errand by ConstableMcKenzie to carry  dishes to ths house of Mr. Lawder,  nearby. He had on his customary  iron shackles, and no thought was entertained by the guardian of the peace  that these could possibly be removed,  and the prisoner escape. After the  necessary time for the kid to accomplish his errand���and not returning,  the constable went to iook for him. It  was dusky outside, but no trace of King  could be found. Constable McKenzie  hastily notified the Chief and Constable Lawder and a rigid search was immediately instituted to re-capture the  willy forger. All night long the three  officers searched the town and vicinity  but without success. King made good  his escape.  How King got away so easy is a matter of conjecture. He had on'his iron  shackles all day, and in the morning  was outside the lockup with three other  prisoners cutting wood. It may be  that during his mornings exercise he  diverted the attention of one of his fellow axmen from cutting logs to'cutting  his chain. This accomplished, the two  ends of the chain could easily have  been tied together with a string and  when an opportunity offered, like it  did later in the evening, he snapped  the string. That gave him free motion  for the use of his.legs, allowing him to  make good his escape. Yet the iron  anklets would still remain locked on  him and to avoid suspicion these must  necessarily be removed. King, the  police believe had assistance from the  outside, as so far no trace of him has  been found. . He vanished completely. -  Clarence King was]a young lad. He  claimed to be only 16 years of age. He  was probably between 17 and 19. He  was tall for his age, smooth faced and  had dark hair. He was a character  evidently susceptible to the influences  of the dime novel. He wanted to figure  as a bold, bad man.  LATER���RECAPTURED.  Since writing the above, Clarence  King has been recaptured and is once  again in the confines of the city lockup. His liberty was only of short  duration and was fraught with con-,  siderable hardships. He managed to  get away as far as Phoenix, where  he was located in a shack by the chief  of police, and Wednesday night saw  him again occupying his bunk in the  city bastile. The chief now wears a  happy expression, and once again  quietude reigns in the little force that  looks after law and order in the city of  Greenwood.  They were at it hammer arid tongues, when  Constable Fitzgerald happened along .and store  them apart.  Hunter insisted on Kenyon's arrest, and  swore to a complaint, charging the drummer  ���with battery.  The strains of "I Guess I'll Have to Tele  graph My Baby" drifted through Main street  as the constable led the traveller away. He  secured bonds later and took the first train out  of town. Hunter was at the station, and as the  cars went by he heard his antagonist softly  piping, "I'don't care if yon never come back."  SAFE HOME-  Victoria   Contingent   Convey   Their  Grateful  Thanks.  Mayor T. J. Hardy was yesterday in  receipt of the following telegram from  the Victoria contingent of C. P.

There are only  two patients in the building, both nicely ,' convalescing from typhoid. It is  thought that there will be no longer  any necessity for continuing the hospital after the close of the year.  James McGregor, Inspector of Mines,  was taken to the Greenwood hospital  last Sunday suffering from a severe attack of pneumonia, He is now reported to be slowly recovering, though during the week there were grave doubts  about his living.  At the Greenwood hospital.there are  fifteen patients.    Happily Drs.  Jakes  & Oppenheimer report every   one   pro  gressing toward recovery.    There are  no accident cases. \ '������  Mrs. Clarissa Nicholls is slowly recovering from a long seige of aggravated typhoid fever. It is hoped she  will be fully recovered by Xmas day.  LATE LOCAL NEWS.  A RAG TIME DUET  Introducing  Several   Vocal  Specialties.  and   Physical  FLEW DE' COUP.  Clarence King. Forger. Quits the City Bastile.  Is Recaptured.  Clarence King, forger, confined in  the city bastile, made a bold dash for  liberty Monday evening and has not  been recaptured.  King,was awaiting removal to Kam-  loops  for  confinement  until  the June  session   o     tin.   c  ui I    it  Vcinon     He  aenj-h did in t   r   lisii  Ihi. tul(r be-  ^^fej^lroni   I     \   urn   nit' lom-  ityiT^^I ( \ Kkt      \   I       f:ity  hi. h ltd nips  From Southern California comes a laughable  story, wherein one Peter Kenj-on,a knight of  the grip, insisted on whistling rag- time ditties,  when he called for his mail at the Livermore  postoffice. The postmaster Reuben Hunter,  objected to" the merry drummer's vocal accomplishments and hit him in the aye. And it  was because the tall, lanky and nervestrung-  custodian of Uncle Sam's mails swung- on the  drummer's optic that the commercial man  made a desperate and nearly successful effort  to wreck the Livermore postoffice. The story  as told by the correspondent of a San Francisco  paper is as follows :  ' It happened a few days ago, when Keiiyon  bumped iutothe Postmaster during- his regulation morning- quest of letters and things.  Hunter was out of humor at the time, and when  the merry man of samples shouted, "Anything  for me ?" the harsh tones of his deep barytone  jarred the Postmaster's nerves. Then, just to  make the situation delightful, Kenyou got his  bellows in order and cut loose with, "I don't  like that face you wear," in a shrill treble like  the sound of a disjointed flute.  Hunter scowled as the drummer continued to  whistle, and, drawing himself to his full height  of six feet three, said testily :  "If there is any mail for you, you can't get it  until you stop that d d noise."  "Oh, I don't know," rejoined the drummer  switching- off to "Whistling Rufus.'.  "See here, you stop that whistling or get out  of here," shouted the Postmaster.  Keiiyon did stop for half a minute. Then he  carolled off into, "All Coons Look Alike to  Me."  After a repetition of the chorus, he said :  "This is a free country, Mr. Postmaster, aud  as a plain American citizen I'll whistle when I  feel like it."  Thou he tore off a few bars of "Ah. I don't  know, you're not so warm."  Now Kenyou is a wee bit of a man of the  build, styled broad across the narrows, and  he's always there when trouble's arround.  He sells blacksmith's supplies and has developed muscle like the steel bars.  The chirruping drummer stopped whistling  long enough to observe the irascible Postmaster step around from behind his barricade  of letter boxes. When he came from behind  tile scenes Hunter announced with some determination that he proposed to put whistlers out  of the office.  When Hunter made his threat Kenyon  whistled "You'll get all that's a-coming to  you."  Hunter, strong in his recollection of many a  licking- he had.triven postage stamps, sailed into  the musical salesman.  "There'll be a [hot time in the old town tonight," crooned Keiiyon as he began a rendition of   the   anvil  ciiorus on  Hunter's beak.
