Such was the information cqn-  ve3red in a letter from him received a few days  He had made all arrangements for spending two weeks in the district when a telegram  from the east summoned him there on business  that could not be postponed. Mr. Bostock expressed his keen disappointment at being Unable .to visit  this portion of his constituency. He is desirous of securing  an expression of the views of the people of the district regarding railway propositions. A meeting of the residents  of Greenwood was held in Rendell & Co's. hall on Friday  evening, the 3rd inst. G. A. Rendell was voted to the chair  and D. Ross was appointed secretary. After a brief discussion it was decided to present Mr. Bostock with a non-polit-  icaladdress upon his arrival here and the following committee was appointed to prepare the same : Aid. G. Arthur  Rendell, Aid. C. S. Galloway, G. R. Naden, I. H. Hallett,  A. Leamy, D. C. McRae, George A. Guess and Duncan Ross.  The committee met on Saturday in Mr. Guess' office and  drafted the address which was to have been presented at a  public meeting, but Mr. Bostock's inabilhry to be present of  course changes all plans. The publication of the address  will at least place on record the views of residents on  the important question of railways :  AD DRESS  To Hewitt Bostock, Esq., M. P. : Sir,���The  residents of Greenwood have much pleasure in welcoming  you to the crty and Boundary Creek district. They desire to express their appreciation of your efforts to make  yourself personally acquainted with the requirements of  this important mining district believing that as representative for the constituency of which Boundary Creek district  forms no uninrportant part you will use your best efforts to  secure such legislation as will materially encourage the development of its mineral resources.  We desire to avail ourselves of this opportunity afforded  by your visit to draw your attention to the following matters which will assist in the development so much required :  Railways :���You are doubtless aware of the keen disappointment felt throughout the district because of the failure  of negotiations whose object was the securing of railway  connection between Penticton and the Columbia river, and  believing that further efforts will be made during the approaching session to secure federal assistance for such an  undertaking we desire to place you in possession of facts  regarding the importance of the mineral resources of the  district.  The Boundary Creek district, which comprises an area of  over 400 square miles is remarkable for its enormous bodies  of ore ; veins 170 feet, 150 feet and a hundred feet wide,  are not uncommon. There are properties whose permanency  have been proven which can produce larg-e quantities of ore,  which will give employment for a large number of men and  which will keep running many smelters.  For instance, the " Mother Lode " in Deadwood camp has  a vein 172 feet wide which has been cross cut b3r a 200 foot  tunnel at a depth of 100 feet and a winze sunk an additional  100 feet. With railwa3r facilities this property is capable of  maintaining- a large daily output. It is being operated by  the Boundary Mines Co. of New York, one of the wealthiest  mining syndicates on the continent. The adjoining property, the "Sunset," on which a large amount of development  work has been done, is owned by Montreal capitalists.  In Greenwood camp, the   "Old  Ironsides"   Company   of  Montreal, of which Ruf us Pope is president, are developing  the "Old ironsides " on which a complete mining plant has  been installed. B3r June the first, next, this property can  maintain a daiby output of 125 tons. As proof of this assertion Mr. J. P. Graves, the manager of the company, offered  to enter into an agreement with a railway c6mpan3r to deliver 125 tons of ore daily by June 1st, provided it would  build a railway into the district. The '-Knob Hill " adjoining is controlled by the same company.  The Steniwinder owned by Messrs. Earrell & Midgeon of  the Parrott Smelting Company, Butte, Montana, has been  extensively developed and is prepared to ship ore as soon as  railway transportation is secured.  The Snowshoe under bond for $50,000 to Mr. Patrick Clark  of War Eagle fame is being rapidly developed.  The Golden Crown in Wellington camp, owned by the  Brandon and Golden Crown Company, of which Hon. T. ���'  Mayne Daly, Ex-minister of the Interior, is president, has  been extensively developed. The compaii3r is installing a  powerful mining plant. The work already done has uncovered large bodies of high grade shipping ore. The Winnipeg adjoining the Golden Crown is being operated b3r a complete steam plant. The principal shareholders in this mine  are prominent North Dakota capitalists. Both these prop-,  erties will soon be in a position to maintain a large and  steady output.  In Summit camp the B. C. is being developed by an English syndicate who have just purchased a complete mining  plant, including a five drill compressor. This machinery is  now being hauled to the property, The development of "this  property has demonstrated that it is one of the largest and  richest copper deposits in the west. Like the other mines  referred to it will soon be a large shipper.  The Anaconda Group in Deadwood camp is owned by the  Recordia Syndicate of London, and is being vigorously developed, fifteen men having been employed for some time.  The enormous width of these ore bodies warrant a large  daily output in the near future, a small amount of development work exposing large bodies of shipping ore.  Besides these copper properties there are a number of  high grade milling and concentrating ores, including the  Jewel of Long Lake camp which has been extensively developed, about $15,000 having been expended thereon and which  is now being,operated with a steam mining plant..  A large amount of development work has also been done  on many claims in Smith's, Central, Skylark, Deadwood  and Copper camps.  The properties to which your attention has been more  especially directed are capable of producing a sufficient  large daily output to justify any railway compai^ in extending its lines into the district, with such government  assistance as is usually granted for such an undertaking.  They are being operated b3r some of the wealthiest mining  syndicates in America and. the most successful mining  operators.  Having been placed in possession of the above facts, we  would respectfully request you to use your best efforts in  impressing upon the government and the house the necessity for such legislation as will secure the immediate construction of a railway into the district. We are unanimous in  the opinion that such assistance should be conditional upon  immediate commencement and early completion of a rail-  wa3r. .    ���  Daily Mail Service.���We also desire to call 3^0111* attention to the fact that the present postal facilities are inadequate to meet the requirements-of the rapidly increasing population and the commercial interests of the district,  and respectfully request that 3'ou urge upon the government the necessity for a daily mail service between Vernon  and Marcus.  Export Duty on Ore.���We desire to inform you that we  are strongly of the opinion that an export duty on ore would  retard the development of our mineral resources, and should  any effort be made to put into operation the Act of last session, we would respectfully urge you to oppose the same.  Earnestly requesting the favor of 3rour kind consideration  and influence in those matters to which we have drawn  3rour attention, we subscribe ourselves, on behalf of the residents of Greenwood, [Signatures of Committee.] ���;*���  *xtf^ 'M^li^tf^wE^  THE   BO UN DA RY   CREEK   T 1MB S.

The Rossland, Miner is agitating- the  early construction   of   a   wagon   road  from Rossland to Boundary  Creek.    It  maintains that such   a  road would divert the  trade  from  Marcus  to Rossland.    The Miner's article would carry  greater weig-ht were it not full  of palpable inaccuracies.    Its assertion  that  the only route into the district  begins  at Marcus is surely   not made   in ignorance.    The   Mirier  must  know    that  Boundary Creek enjoys the advantage  of the keenest competitive freight rates  between the American lines  terminating- at Marcus and the C. P. R. at Penticton.    So anxious were the rival companies  to  secure  the  trade  that they  have made arrangements with freighters to deliver  goods  at Greenwood   at  very low   rates   considering-   the   distances  over  which it has to be hauled  by wagon.    The  Miner fixes the population of this district at  1500, which is  anything but a reasonable  figure.    At  least 3000 would be nearer the mark.  The Miner is also wrong when it  states that all goods coming-in by way  of Marcus are purchased in the United  States. Not ten per cent, of the goods  routed by this line are purchased in the  United States. The business men of  Boundar3r Creek are just as shrewd and  just as enterprising as those of Rossland and they buy in the regular market for British Columbia retail houses���-  Coast and eastern wholesale houses.  ���These"goods-are"shipped in bond when  routed over an American line. The  American lines are used when they  give better rates than the C. P. R., not  because it is compulsory to use them.  Even should the wagon road through  McRae pass be built as the Miner suggests, Rossland would not secure the  trade. Rossland is anything but, a  wholesale centre and Boundary Creek  business men buy in the largest markets. Even without railwaj- facilities,  prices in Greenwood are almost as low  as those in Rossland. There are other  inaccuracies in the Miner's article.  While we appreciate the spirit which  prompts the Rossland paper to get into  closer touch with the people of Boundary Creek we see a danger in supporting' the scheme which it suggests.  The great desideratum for the people  of this district is "a ' railway. ..While  wagon roads are necessary to connect  the business centres with mining  camps, a wagon road such as suggested would fall far short of meeting the  requirements of the district. The  Rossland Board of Trade who we are  informed are taking- up the Miner's  suggestion, are sure to urge upon the  provincial government assistance in  building the wagon road. Therein lies  the danger. Should they succeed in  influencing the government to vote public money for this purpose there would  be less left for a railway. We want  all the money both g-overnments can  spare to assist in the early construction  of a railway and it would be unwise to  draw attention away from this fact by  such a scheme as the Miner advocates.

Mine owners in Boundary Creek are  taking- the best ineans of proving- that  this district is one of the most important mining' districts in the world.  During- the last few months greater  effort to thoroughly develop properties has been made than heretofore.  The very fact that before the end of  the year at least six properties will b��  developed by powerful mining- machinery will afford the greatest inducement  to capitalists to invest their money in  Boundary Creek properties. That  mine owners should overcome almost  insurmountable transportation difficulties in order to bring" machinery to  their properties will inspire confidence  in those, who have been rather wary  about investing- for fear that they  mig-ht be handicapped by the lack of  railway facilities.   .,,  Some time ag-o, a representative of a  wealthy lOng-lish syndicate visited  Boundary Creek. He was an experienced and competent mining- engineer  who knew a" good thing when he saw  it. He was htre only a short time  when he had a property under bond for  ��� ��� it-.. '  a larg-e sum of nioney. But the I0ng-  lish principals feared to invest their  nioney in a district so remote from a  railwa}^ and the bond fell throug-h.  Since then the company's representative has been endeavoring- to secure  suitable.property in Kootenay but without success. He always regretted that  his compan}^ did not invest in Boundary Creek.  If mine owners continue to show ..the  same enterprise as is exhibited at the  present time there cannot be the least  doubt about the future of the district.  The work done by one conij)any encourages another and soon from every quarter will be heard the hum of mining-  plants which will soon be followed by  the whistle of the railwavo locomotive.  Election By-Law.  A special meeting of the City Council was held on Thursday evening for  the purpose of finally considering the  trade license, dog and road tax b3r-law  and to pass an election by-law. Aid.  G-. Arthur Rendell presided in the absence of the Mayor and Aid. Barrett,  Phelan and Galloway were also present, a  In conformity with an opinion secured from A. S. Black, the Trade Ivicense  by-law was slightly amended and was  then finally passed.  Aid. GallowaY- asked leave to introduce  an election b3r-law. Iveave was granted and the by-law wras read a first and  second time. The standing- rules were  suspended and the by-law was considered in committee and read a third  time. It provides for holding the next  municipal election on Thursday,  Jan. 13th, the nominations to take  place on the Monday previous. A. S.  Black is named as returning officer and  Duncan Ross as deputy returning-officer. The polling- booth will be at the  school house.  Another special meeting of the council was held on Friday evening: when  the election by-law was re-considered  and finally passed.  A New  Hotel.  P. C. Tormey, of Spokane, and M.  Moran, Cheyenne, will in, a few days  begin the construction of a hotel in  Greenwood. They arrived here from  Spokane a few days ago and after looking about the city purchased a lot on  Copper^ street from Mr. Thos. Walsh.  The lot is between the International  hotel and the livery stable. The price  paid  was   in the neighborhood of $500.  Messrs. Tormey and Moran are both  experienced and successful hotel men  and notwithstanding the fact that there  are live hotels in the city, they appreciate the fact that Greenwood is growing so rapidly that there will soon be a  large business for another. Mr. Tormey has several mining properties in  Dead-wood camp and spent a portion of  last summer here.  Customs Officer at Nelson.  Louis Rossuth Boissonault of Spokane has been appointed a customs  officer at Nelson, Wash., and has already opened his office. Since the increased traffic to Eureka there was a  pressing need for an officer at that  point.    ���  Armstrong Flour.  The Greenwood City Mercantile  Company has secured the agency for  the Okanagan Flour Mills Company's  flour. The product of the mills has  steadily gained favor and is one of the  best flours on the market.  Died  to Save Another.  Mr. J. Merry, a brother-in-law of  William McKenzie, the well known  railway man and a relative of A. C.  McKenzie of Greenwood met his death  in the Iron Colt mine near Rossland  through an act of self-sacrifice. A  ���miner, George Callanach, had gone into a drift where some blasts had recent-  ty been exploded and was overcome by  gas.    Merry went in to rescue him and  he also was overcome. Three-quarters  of an hour afterwards the two men  were found and brought to the surface.  Merry was dead but Cattanach revived.  Mr. Merr3r was married only three  weeks ago arid his wife is completely  overcome by grief. The body was sent  to Kirkfield, Oflt., for burial.

The Boundary Creek Times publishes communications on matters of public interest,  but disclaims any responsibility for the  opinions expressed in this column.  Rock  Creek  Bridge.  Editor, Boundary Creek Times:  I have a few words to put before the  public in reg-ard to the wants of Rock  creek. There has been great trouble  in crossing- the creek at this point  every winter and spring for the last  few years, so the g-overnment started  to put a bridge across the creek, but  didn't finish it, until they saw some  more horses drowned or killed, in attempting- to cross. The lumber is  waiting- to be hauled to finish the  bridge. So why don't they send it on  and save so many��from the danger of  losing their lives or else put some reliable man on the road to see that the  work is done ? What's the matter with  this government? Don't they g*et  enough out of us to pay for the paltry  bit of work they do in this country ? I  for one have had to pay out over $100  this fall for trail cutting- and then they  have the g-all to ask me to pay taxes  for doing- it. The whole outfit ought  to be turned out.���        A Sufferer.  [The early construction of a bridg-e  across Rock Creek is a matter to which  the Times has already called attention  and we regret to learn that no effort is  being made to have the bridg-e completed. The Rock Creek crossing- is not  safe at any time ; at high water it is  positively.dangerous. The g-overnment  should see that a bridg-e is constructed  at this point at once.���Kd.]  Heinze and %e C.   P. R.  The railway situation is g-etting- decidedly complicated and the final solution no one can discern. F. Auguste  Heinze went to Montreal some two  weeks ag-o and had a conference with  Sir William Van Home, the president  of the Canadian Pacific Railway Company. It was announced that the Canadian Pacific Railway Company were  anxious to acquire the Trail smelter  and all interest in the Columbia &  Western Railway. The C. P. R, would  not pay the price asked and at once  started in to crush Heinze by paralleling- his road into Rossland. It is also  rumored that the C. P. R. intend buying Corbin's system and running its  trains into Spokane.  Whether Mr. Heinze can make terms  with the C. P. R. remains to be seen.  If he does, then the powerful corporation will have no practical opposition  to its schemes for railway': building in  British Columbia.  Hotel Arrivals.  The following  were   the   arrivals at  the International hotel during- the  week: Frederick McL,aine, W. B.  Rickards, J. McNicol, J. P. Jackson,  F. Jacobs, Midway ; J. L/.

J. McNicol has transferred a half  interest in the Great He.sper and Hecla  to J. C. Haas.  Mr. W. S. Fletcher, the drug-g-ist, returned, on Tuesday '-from a business  trip;.to'Spokane.';  Mr. B. ,D., Morrison has sold his stag-e  line to. G. Williams, ^the, proprietor of  the Marcus-Grand Forks line.  A larg-e bear was shot by (Messrs.  Inkster and Medill this week. The  brute measured 6 ft. 6 in. from tip to  ���tip..  G. H. Ford has opened a neat tonso-  rial establishment on Copper street.  He has a neat bath room in connection.  A sneak thief visited a clothes line  this week and carried off some wearing-  apparel. This is the "first instance  where theft has been reported in  Greenwood.  The Bachelors'Ball g-iven at Midway last week was a decided success.  The sleig-hing- being- good many went  down from Greenwood and all thor-  pug-hly enjoyed themselves.  The members of " Boundary Valley"  Ivodg-e, No. 38, I.O.O.F., have invited  their friends to an entertainment to be  g-iven in Rendell & Co.'s hall  on Tues  day  evening-.  Oddfellows,   not  mem  bers of the lodg-e but who are in the  district, are cordially invited to be  present.  Mr. A. H. Harrison of the B. C. mine  has returned from Rossland. The machinery for the B. C. is being- hauled to,  the mine and will be placed in position  as speedily as possible. A suitable  shaft house is being- erected and also  other building's. The shaft on the B.  C. is down about 75 feet.  Looking for  Properties.  Mr. P. C. Stoess, the well known  Spokane mining- man, visited Greenwood this week and spent some time in  the hills examining- properties with a  view to bonding- or purchase. To a  Timks representative Mr. Stoess stated that Spokane took a decided interest  in Botmdar}' Creek and that interest  was daily increasing-. Mining- men  appreciated the fact   that this   district  would be one of the greatest producers  as soon as ������* railway facilities were secured.  Mr. Stoess is one of the directors of  the Okanag-an Water Power Company.  This company was incorporated by  private act last session for the purpose  of using- the water of Okanag-an river  for power purposes. Mr. Stoess stated  that the company were not doing anything-. The water clauses act enforced such restrictive taxes and en-  dang-ed a company's right to such an  extent that there is no inducement for  capital to expend money in water  schemes. ���  H. B. Munroe accompanied Mr.  Stoess while visiting properties in the  ''district.  Licensing Court.  The Board of Licensing Commissioners held a meeting on Wednesday,  at 10 o'clock. In the absence of the  Mayor, Aid. Galloway ��� who was appointed in his stead presided. Mr. I.  H. Hallett who was appointed police  magistrate had not then decided to accept the position and as he was in correspondence with the government regarding the matter, it was decided to adjourn the court until the 20th inst. By  that time all the members of the court  should be present.  For Bargains in Mining Machinery and Tools  write or call on Chas. E.

COPPER   STREET  GREENWOOD,   B.G.  3^  ^  W���  tsst  ��  Municipal  Election.  The municipal election is not generally discussed in G-reeiwood and in  all probability the fight, if any, will be  an exceedingly quiet one. There is  plenty of material in the city suitable  for building a municipal government  but the average citizen does not appear  to be anxious for civic honors. In all  probability all of this year's aldermen  will seek re-election save Aldermen  Hamill and McKenzie who havoe been  absent for some time. Should they return before the election they would be  urged to run again as they both proved  sensible and enterprising aldermen.  Of course there is nothing to prevent  them being nominated during their absence. The only condition imposed in  such a case is that their consent in  writing shall be handed to the returning officer.  The voters" list shows that there are  144 persons qualified to vote at the  coming election. The great majority  of these are property holders and about  50 are non-residents. The total voters  in Grand Forks is 73 and the Miner  states that of these 20 will be absent  leaving only SO votes to be cast on  election day. ���         Should be Altered.  Since one of the duties of the legislature is to rectify errors made by the  g-overnment during- the interval between sessions, it might find less profitable employment than the consideration of the erratic conduct of the minister of mines in making a boundary  line for the Grand Forks mining division that no one can follow. The  Times must confess that it has already  drawn attention to this matter but  scarcely a week passes but there is  fresh grounds for complaint. The dividing line between the Grand Forks  and Kettle riv^r mining divisions is  g-eometricalljr accurate���length without breath���but it is a delusion and a  snare. Surveyors are unable to locate  it and mine owners and prospectors are  always in a quandary to know where  to record claims and certificates of improvements. Already several lawsuits  have been instituted arising from disputes as to the location of this precious  line. Owners have spent money in advertising for crown grants to find that  the money has been wasted because  the gold commissioner holds that their  properties are not in the mining division in which they were advertised.  If the legislature cannot induce the  minister of mines to change this boundary to one more distinct, it should  then insist on monuments being erected to mark the present boundary. In  no other way can serious legal complications be avoided. We think that  probably the latter suggestion would  be more acceptable to the government.  Its members seem to have a penchant  for having their names cut deep into  brass plates and piles of rock and the  monuments erected to define the dividing- line could also be used to perpetuate the name of the minister of mines.  They would then be what they ought  to be ; monuments to the folly of Hon.  Col. Baker, minister of mines, and to  describe a vague and delusory boundary.  ^^^f^r^:fS^(^s^^f:-_  I     H.

Foster, Ex-minister of Finance. It  consists of six claims, the Golconda,  Laocoon, York, Cleveland, Wild Rose  and Gold Bed. These properties were  located in 1895 and 1896 and considerable development work has been done.  On the Golconda the vein has been exposed for a distance of 310 feet by cuts  made through several feet of wash in-,  to the sulphide ore, which is very solid  down to about 14 feet in depth. A four  foot by six foot shaft has been sunk  midway between the cuts to a depth of  . 60 feet, following the foot wall of the  ledge at the contact of diorite*and  quartz formations. The vein varies in  width from three to eight feet. After  a depth of 14 feet, the vein maintains  its width but is more or "less gangued  up. The ore gives values from $7 to  $16 and the mixed gangue runs from $3  to $5. The indications are favorable to  the vein running all into solid ore as  greater depth is attained. In both  open cuts high values have been secured, $35 having been secured from ore  150 feet south. of the shaft and $42  from a similar distance north, from 12  inches of arsenical iron and $7 to $18  from the remainder of the vein.  Some development work has been  done on the Cleveland Laocoon, Gold  Bed and the Wild Rose.  Mr. J. C. Haas left last week for the  east and the negotiations were conducted through his attorney, Mr. I. H.  Hallett. Mr. Haas is to be congratulated upon the deal. He has worked  assiduously to make the mineral riches  of the district known and it is gratifying to know that his efforts will not go  unrewarded.  The Golconda Group is situated in  Smith's camp and are within a short  and easy distance from Greenwood.  Mr. Stoess left on Friday morning  from Spokane. The company which  he represents has secured mining properties in different districts in the province and has ample funds to do vigor-  ours development work.  The Jewel   Mine.  Last week the transfer was recorded  of Yz interest in the Jewel and % interest in the Gold Drop from F. Dittmer  to the Prospecting Syndicate of British Columbia. This Syndicate paid  Mr. Dittmer the last payment on account of the bond.  The mine is now free from water.  Some new machinery has been ordered  by Mr. Hill and it will reach here from  Denver in a few days.  ; Corbin's Surveyors.  Corbin's surveyors who have been in  the field since September last have  practically completed the survey for  the railway from Northport to Cascade  City. The road will branch off the  main line at Northport and cross the  Columbia river at the steel bridge at  that point. It will follow the Columbia  river as far south as Crow Creek which  it will follow west to Boulder mountain.  It will pass to the south of that mountain and then run in a northerly direction to Deep Creek, then it will run  north to the International boundary  line and- to Cascade City.  NOTES.  Hon. T. R. Mclnnes has been sworn  in as Lieutenant-Governor of British  Columbia. ,;,.  Mr. Ralph Smailes, of Rendell & Co.,  left yesterday on a business trip to  Rossland.  I. A. Diusmore, police constable at  Grand Forks was one of the visitors to  Greenwood this week.  Development work has commenced  on the Golden Treasure. Mr. David  Bryant has several men employed.  The machinery for the Golden Grown  mine has left Penticton and should be  in operation by the first of the year.  Mr. C. M,. Shaw, C. E., has returned  from Fairview where he surveyed some  sections of land for Mayor Wood and  associates.  R. Denzler, of the Snowshoe mine,  will leave in a few days for Spokane.  Before returning he may visit his old  home in the East. N  Mr. Fred Shonquist who has been  visiting in Shearing, Nebraska, for  several months is expected back in  Greenwood in a few days.  There has been a great deal of vexatious delay in the hauling of freight  frpm Penticton ; but few freig-ht teams  have reached Greenwood during- the  past month. "\  ��  J. W. Bassett reached Greenwood  yesterday with several loads of freight  from Penticton. The delay was caused  by the fact that',it was necessar3' to  transfer the freight from  sleighs at McCuddy's.  Mr. J. P. Harlan, the assayer, return  ed on Thursday evening from a business visit to Spokane. He reports that  Spokane mining men are greatly interested in this district and heard Greenwood and Boundary Creek discussed  more in mining circles than an}' other  district in the province.  A grand ball will be given in Iyi-nd's  hall, Anaconda, on New Year's eve.  Excellent music will be provided and  supper will be served at the Palace  hotel. Anaconda balls have always  been a success and judging from the  efforts made by the committee in  charge the one on New Year's eve will  be no exception to the rule.

Notwithstanding- the fact that the  attention of the Minister of Agriculture has been drawn to the reprehensible conduct of Dr. Hickingbottom in  levyingtribute upon freighters, that  gentleman is still clo'thed with authority from the Dominion g-overnment.  While the Times makes due allowance  for the fact that the lack of telegraphic  communication precludes prompt ac^  tion from Ottawa, still the Department  of Agriculture should not allow Dr.  Hickingbottom to remain for a single  moment in its service after attention  has been drawn to his conduct.  We have been credibly informed that  since his illegal actions have been exposed he has ceased to filch hard earned money from the freighters, but the  very fact that he has done so should  entitle him to immediate dismissal.  As the Times has already pointed  out, the position he holds is a very re"  sponsible one. An International quarantine should be Under the control of  someone entitled to public confidence.  Dr. Nelson the veterinary surgeon  for the State of Washington has visited Grand Forks in response to the urgent protests of the people of Nelson  and Eureka who have been harassed  by the ill-advised conduct of the Canadian officer. Dr. Nelson has made arrangements by which all horses will be  examined at Marcus and if they are  free from disease they will be allowed  to haul freight to the point of its desti-  ? nation. This is a more sensible proceeding and one,to which no objection  will be taken. In the meantime it"  would be interesting to learn how many  cases of glanders have been discovered  and how effective the quarantine has  been in stamping out the disease. The  people are also anxious to know if they  and their horses are liable to contract  the disease from those horses which  have been driven from Greenwood to  Marcus and returned without being  quarantined. Several teams have  made the trip since the quarantine has  been established. They passed through  Grand Forks while Dr. Hickingbottom  was regaling bar-room loungers with  his views on quarantine matters.  Since his little game of taxing freight-  ers has been exposed he does not appear to be as anxious to maintain'a  strict quarantine.  The Christina.

Although known  to have been ill, it was thought she had  sufficient!)' recovered oh Saturday to  resume duties at the school on Monday, but on Saturday afternoon a relapse came. She gradually sank until  six o'clock on Monday evening- when  she quietly passed away, having never  reg'ained consciousness from the relapse on Saturday.  Miss Thornber contracted a severe  cold which superinduced fever. The  latter appeared to have settled in the  head and despite constant attention  from Dr. Jakes and those who watched  b}r her bedside, she never rallied aftextile relapse on Saturday.  Her death is a peculiarly sad one, not  only because she was cut off at the  early age of nineteen years but because  her parents who live at New Westminster are both invalids. The shock of  losing- their daughter away from home  will be a terribly sad one.  Miss Thornber was teacher of the  public school since it was opened 12  months ago. A conscientious and  painstaking teacher, she won the respect of both pupils and parents.  A telegram was sent to her parents  on Monda3r morning notifying them of  her serious illness, but before it could  reach them death came and the still  sadder news was sent in a telegram on  Tuesday morning.  It was decided to send the body to  New Westminster for interment, and  on Tuesday morning- Mr. Thos. Gulley  left with it by a special team for Penticton. The remains would reach New  Westminster vesterday.  i ��� ��� I  .... I ' T  Winchester,   Marlin  and -Savage  Rifles. o  Greener,  Glabrough,   Scott,   Tisdall,   and  W.   Richards  Shot Guns.
