GREENWOOD CITY, B.G, SATURDAY, FEBRUARY 13, 1897,  No. 23,  CAMP  McKlNNEY  STAMP  MILL.  'HE} photographic view illustrated below will be at  once recognized by every reader who has travelled  over the Penticton-Greenwood stag-e road, showing- as it does one of the most interesting- sig-hts on the  route, namely, the Cariboo Mining- & Milling- Company's  building-s on their claim, the " Cariboo," at Camp McKinney, B.C. The mill was put up in the spring- of 1894 and  has been running- steadily since that time, having- produced  about a quarter of a million dollars in bullion.  The mill is an ordinary 10-stamp one, with concentrating  tables and rock crusher attached, and is run by a 30-horse-  power engine, crushing- about 20 tons of ore every day of 24  hours.    The ore, which is hoisted from  the  working  shaft  by a steam hoist some 500 feet distant from the mill, is conveyed in cars along- the covered tramway and dumped on a  grizzly, the fine material passing through, while the coarser  goes through a crusher   and   thence   into  the ore bin.   The free  gold is saved on  the  plates,     which      are  cleaned  every   otlier  day, a general cleanup being made semimonthly ;   while the  concentrates,    which  average about  three  per cent., are sacked  arid hauled to Penticton, whence they are  shipped   to    Tacoma  or E}verett.    The ore  mills from $15 to $25  to the ton,  exclusive  of the concentrates���  the    latter    running  about $3.00 to the ton.  The mill is under the  charge of  Mr. W."H.  Blick, an experienced  amalgamator,      who _  has been in the employ of the company since the commencement of operations.  The main hoisting shaft is down about 200 feet. The present ore supply is coming from the 100 ft. and 200 ft. levels.  There are, on an average, about 25 men employed in the  mill and mine, the entire works being under the superintendence of Mr. J. P. Keane; a visit to the mine and mill  will impress one with the thorough business manner in  which every part of the work is condttcted.  The head offices of the company are at Spokane, Mr. J.  Monaghan being president and Mr. G. B. McAuley secretary-treasurer ; the shares are seldom offered on the market  but 49c. is the listed price. The property has the reputation  of being the best free-gold producing proposition in the  province.  An exhaustive description of Camp McKinney and its  surrounding mines appeared in our issue of November 28th  last; we may add that there are two general merchandise  stores in the camp,���that of Mr. "W. T. Shatford, with Mr.  A. Cosens in charge ; the other owned by Mr. H. Nicholson,  who is also postmaster, mining agent and notary public,  and knows every claim in the neighborhood. The hotel is  owned by Mr. Hugh Cameron, one of the kindest and  best known of the fast-dwindling army of old timers ; mak  ing no pretensions to architectural beauty or interior lavish  display, this night station is always a welcome sight to the  weary traveller, and nowhere will more effort be made to  make him comfortable. The company's boarding-house,  blacksmith and workshops, miners' cabins and the stage  buildings make up the rest of the settlement.  Sit-      Sit-      Sit-  *!&'���     ?!&       fit?  Some three-and-a-half miles to the east of the Cariboo is  situated the Victoria mine,���the first claim to be recorded  in the Osoyoos district���now the property of the Rock  Creek Gold Mines, lytd., recently incorporated and capitalized for $500,000. Among the trustees are such well-known  Victorians as Mr. Simon Leiser and Mr. R. P. Rithet. Besides the Victoria the company also own the Queen and  California claims, in the same vicinity. Under the superintendence of Mr. Bash, work has been prosecuted on the  Victoria for some time past, a tunnel following what was  thought to be the lead having been driven for 160 feet.    In  this tunnel most per  fect walls were found  but the vein matter���  a sort of talc and  soapstone ��� was    almost valueless.   I/ast  week, however, a fine  body  of  quartz  was  struck, and the  face  of   the    tunnel   now  shows h i g h-g r a d e  ore.     The   company  are     employing   between 20 and 30  men  about the mine,  and  what with the bunk  and boarding houses,  the     offices,    blacksmith's  shop,   and  other buildings    the  place  wears  a   most  business-like appearance.      There    is   a  story about the  Victoria claim that some  years ago nearly two  tons  of valuable  ore  that  had  been piled  on   the dump,  one dark night mysteriously   disappeared ;   it; being  afterwards told how that pack-horses laden with well-filled ore- ;  sacks had been seen at early  dawn  disappearing  over  the  brow of a hill in a southerly direction.    Whether this yarn  would stand investigation it is difficult to say, but it is true  that fine ore was found by the original owners on the  property, and assays were obtained running as high  as $48  in  gcold and $150 in silver to the ton.    The old  workings  have  long since caved in.  at*��fl  Sli  fie  fie  S&  fie  The Minnehaha, a claim adjoining the Cariboo on the  south, has been purchased by Vancouver parties for $55,000.  The purchasers have incorporated the Minnehaha Gold  Mining Company under the Dominion act and are starting  in to work the property. The Minnehaha was formerly  owned by Mr. Ainsley Megraw, a well known newspaper  man in the Okanagan.  *7k*  0%  'li-  Sle-  '/ie~  Althoug-h the snowfall at Camp McKinney is much heavier than in the Kettle River valley, the average winter temperature is much higher. During the last cold snap, while  the thermometer at Midway recorded 26 degrees below  zero, 14 below was the limit reached at McKinney. THE   BOUNDARY   CREEK   TIMES,  739oiB9��e3arot9X  RAILROAD   MATTERS.  A Talk with the General Passenger and Freight  Agent of the Great Northern Railway.  Mr. G. G. Dixon, general agent for  the Great Northern R.R., with headquarters at Spokane, visited the district this week and was interviewed by  a representative of The. Times :  " YeSj" he said, " I believe you will  have two railroads this year. From  what I can learn the Spokane & Northern will be extended from Northport,  and very probably Mr. Heinze will  -build his line."  "That would mean that all the  / freight for this district would be shipped over American roads, would it not  ���unless of course a section of the proposed road connecting, Boundary with  Vancouver is built at the same time  from Penticton ?"���" Yes, undoubtedly ; goods would certainly not be shipped over the C.P.R. and transferred to  wagons, when they could be brought  the entire distance by rail. Fven now  I imagine we have the lion's share of  the transportation business of this district." ,-;;,;;������/',;':'-..������;"   ";���..-; '   .y,'"  "And why is that ? Are not the rates  uniform over the competing roads?"���  " Our   service   is   faster,   as we  have;  fewer transfers to make.    Our  line  of  steamboats carry goods in   bond  from  Victoria to  Seattle,   and  thence  they  are shipped direct to Marcus.  Whereas  the C.P.R. are obliged   to   transfer  at  Vancouver,   Okanagan   Fanding,   and  ---Penticton.    Wi.th Grand Forks in particular we dp a good business."  "What do you think  of  Greenwood,  Mr. Dixon ?"���-"You  have   a  splendid  towns! te ; it reminds  me very much of  Sandon in some  ways,   and  doubtless  will  grow  as  rapidly.      Your   townspeople are evidently  enterprising  and  energetic."  "Is there as much talk of Boundary  as ever in Spokane ?"���" Yes, as much  as ever; people are only waiting for  the spring to flock in to your camp.  By-the-way I was responsible for sending a very well known mining man to  Boundary, Col. Weir, a personal friend  of mine, whom 3rou have no doubt met.  We were travelling together, and happening to miss a train atNorthport decided to visit Rossland. , The Colonel  was so pleased with what he saw there  that when I told him of the copper pre-,,  perties of Boundary he determined to  go and see them, with what result you  know. Col. Weir represents a wealthy  smelting syndicate, with interests all  oyer the West."  Mr. Dixon stated that the object of  his visit was more to get acquainted  with the merchants and ascertain their  views than to close any immediate contracts for freight. After visiting Anaconda, he took Wednesday's stage for  Marcus and Spokane.  A correspondent writes to The Times  complaining that it is now next to impossible to sell either mining claims or  stock in Spokane since a stock exchange was established in that town.  The jobbers and brokers by "bearing"  certain stock and other questionable  methods, have caused the public to  look with distrust on all mining  schemes. Many small investors have  been badly bitten by listening to the  advice of unscrupulous brokers and  putting their money into "wild-cat"  speculations.  A large scow is being built by the  C.P.R. as a tender to the "Aberdeen,"  in anticipation of a greatly increased  freight business this season.  Notice of  Application  Bill.  for Private  NOTICE  is   hereby  given  that application  will be made to the Legislative Assembly  of the Province of British Columbia at its next  session for a private bill, to incorporate a Company for  the  purpose of  constructing,  equipping,   maintaining   and   operating  a   railway'  from a  point ".'on-the  south  boundaryv line of  British Columbia, near the south end ef  Christina lake,  being west of the 118th  degree of  longitude; thence westerly in the direction of  Carson City ;   thence northerly  up the north  fork of Kettle river ; thence westerly  through  Pass creek, Eholt meadows, and to the City  of  Greenwood, running  in  a southerly  direction  down Boundary creek to the town,of Midwa}' ;  thence   westerly,  following  the  Kettle  River  valley up its course to the junction of the west.  fork of Kettle river,  being a .northerly  direction;   thence diverging arid   running  up   the  west fork through  a pass to  Penticton : and  with power to construct, maintain, and operate  branch   lines   through   Cascade   City-,  Carson  City, the Town of  Midway^,  Myers  creek and  Okanagan   valley-   to   the southern  boundary  line of British  Columbia ; and  all  necessary  bridges, ferries and wharfs ; and to construct,  own arid operate telegraph and  telephone lines  in   connection   with; the    said "'-railway    and  branches; to take arid  use water to  generate  electricity, and to acquire foreshore rights and  lands for the right of wajr and station grounds  arid other necessities, and to acquire lands and  other bonuses or aids from the Government of  British Coluhibia to aid in  the construction of  the said railway : and to make traffic and other  arrarigements with other railway companies or  persons ; and for all other usual and necessary  powers and privileges.

Lambley-^Haynes.  R. Lamb-  ly, Gold Commissioner for the Osoyoos  division of Yale, and Miss Hester ip.  Haynes, eldest daughter of the late  Judge Haynes, took place at Spokane,  on Tuesday, the ceremony being performed by the Rev. Father Kauten, according to the ritual of the Roman  Catholic Church. The bride, who was  given away by her mother, wore a travelling dress of dark fawn .cloth trimmed with velvet to match. On Wednesday the bridal party started On the  return journey for Osoyoos where thev-  will in future reside. Among the wedding presents were the following:  Cheque, from friends at Fairview;  cheque, from friends at McKinney;  lamp, Mr. and Mrs. McMynn; lamp,  Miss.Evll.is_; pair of gold bracelets, gold  chain and ..cross, .''Mrs..

A  boiler, pump and other machinery has  also been ordered and may be expected  to arrive shortly. This is the first  steam hoist to be brought into the district.  DISTRICT NEWS.  Work has been stopped for the time  being on the Gold Dollar, in Central  camp.  The Fontenoy and Okanagan claims  at Camp McKinnev were sold last week  for $20,000.     ';'���-; "  Messrs..T-^ee & Anderson have been  appointed agents for the B. C. M. & M.  Co. at Rossland.  A "sheet and pillow-case" ball took  place last night at Midway. A number  of people from Greenwood and Anaconda attended.  The prospectus of the Brandon and  Golden Crown Mining Company is  about to be issued. Shares will be put  on the market at 15c.  Mr. James, assisted by outside capital, will shortly start development  work and erect a stamp mill on the Old  England, in Camp McKinney.  Mr. R. Graham, a nephew ofdvlr.  Monaghan, was in the district this  week on important business connected  with the Cariboo, Camp McKinney,  mine.   '���.--.  Mr. T. McDonell returned yesterday  from Victoria. He was informed on the  best authority that the C.P.R. would  extend their system from Penticton to  Boundary this year.  Assessment work is to be done next  week on the Pleiades. Judging- from  its name this claim should be either  something astonishingly good or an  undomesticated pussy.  The Greenwood post-master has received word that all mail destined for  Victoria or Vancouver must be sent via  Penticton, "as the Marcus bag has  been taken off long ag-o."  The claims which are being- developed by the B. C. M. & M. Co. continue  to look well. Work will be started  next week on the O.B. The ore from a  shaft on this claim assays from $4 to  $173.  The ore body recently struck in the  Victoria claim at Camp McKinney is  13 feet wide, the ore being quartz, galena and iron pyrites, assaying well.  In another column reference appears  anent the tunnel   that  was   driven   on  this claim, which  might  be  taken   to  mean that  the  management  expected  J�� PIBRCY &��� C  25, 27 29, YATES STREET,  VICTORIA:   B.

The tunnel is now in 180 feet.  A correspondent writes from Rossland that mining machinery of Canadian manufacture is exclusively in use  in that camp, and that it is regarded  as quite equal, by men capable of judging-, to the finest products of the U.S.  factories.   We are very glad to hear so.  A deal is now pending for the purchase of the Cariboo mine, at Camp  McKinney, by an English syndicate.  All arrangements have not as yet been  concluded, and The Times is, therefore, not authorised to publish details  at present. It is expected, however,  that this important transaction will be  made public next week.

Martin,  Chief  Commissioner of Lands and Works,   is   reported as having said   anent   the  con-  r   struction   of  wagon-roads,   which   the  Government were  petitioned  to  build  in this district, that as in all  probability the country would be Opened up   in  ���v the near future by railways,   to  spend  money on   wagon-roads  would  be   unnecessary,   or   words   to    that   effect.  From   information   more  recently   received, we learn that  Mr.   Martin   did  not,   as  was  at  first  thought, merely,  give utterance to the foregoing remark,  to delay, in accordance with established  .ministerial"'"custom,".' making    any  definite pledge that might commit  the  '.-. Government to carry out the wishes of  the   Boundary Creek   petitioners ;   but  was in point of fact   actually  defining  the policy of action, or rather inaction,  that the Government proposed to adopt  with. regard  to  road-building  in   the  districts likely to be traversed by  railroad lines   any   time  within   the  next  year or so.    Already, we are informed,  the Government Agent at Vernon* has  received    his   instructions,    and   road  work that was contemplated   and  was ,  arranged for is hot now to be done this  year.    If  our  information   is   correct,'  and it only corroborates   Mr.   Martin's  own words, the Government  intend  to  retard the development of the resources  of a most valuable district   until   such  times as the promoters of railway companies find it convenient to   commence  the   construction   of    their    projected  roads.    Any more foolish   policy   than  this it would  be   difficult   to   conceive..  The principal business   for   a  railroad  connecting Boundary Creek   with  outside points would be in carrying ore to  the smelters.    If there  are  no wagon-  ; roads  to the  camps  how  can  ore  be  brought to  the  cars ?    How  can   machinery be taken to  the  mines ?    It   is  perhaps the intention   of  the  Government to allow the roads to be  built  by  private    enterprise,���an   arrangement  which has   its   advantages   in  that   it  is all clear gain to the  province, but is  nevertheless   hardly   a  fair   form    of  taxation.    Heretofore, private individuals have been compelled to,open nearly all the roads leading to   the  principal camps of Boundary Creek   at  their  personal expense, and strangely enough  they have g-ot very little  credit for   it.  Last year the townspeople of Anaconda  cut  the  trail   to   Central    camp ;   Mr.  Robt. Wood built some  fourteen   miles  of excellent road ; Rendell & Co.   opened a trail to Pass creek :   and   recently  a   mining   company  were   obliged,   in  order to get supplies up to their claims,  to construct a  road  for a considerable  distance.    Mr. Martin has   admitted���  and he could not well have done otherwise���that the province derives a  comparatively large revenue from this dis  trict, that the amount has increased  very materially during the. last two  years, and that it promises to increase  still more rapidly. Surely, then, Mr."  Martin, who is accredited with being a  man of ability, must acknowledge that  Boundary Creek has not received the  consideration to which it is justly entitled at the hands of the Government,  both in view of its potential resources  and in recognition of the business already transacted at the Government  offices.

This week the Boundary Mines Company practically took up  the  bond   on  the No. 7,   by   making-   a   second  payment of $4,000 on the purchase price of  $13,800,    A balance of  $8,100  is,   however, still due to the vendors, and is  to  -be paid in 60 days from the date of the  expiration of  bond  on  the   15th  inst.  The   company   have   in  the  past   six  months expended nearly  $8,000   in  developing- the claim with quite   gratifying-results.   The work includes a shaft  sunk to a depth of 140 feet, and 260 feet  of drifts.    A cross-cut tunnel was  run  from the bottom of  the  shaft  for   180  feet for the purpose of  tapping-  a  second ledge, that from surface indications  was   supposed   to  exist;   but  beyond  passing-   through  two  deposits  of  almost valueless  quartz  the  manager's  expectations in this  respect   were  not  realised.    On the other hand the greatest possible success  has  followed, 'the  development   of   the   discovery    lead.  Not only from a geological and miner-  alogical point of view has the vein been  shown to be a most perfect example of  a contact, but the value of the  ore,   always  high-grade,   increased  considerably at a depth from  the  surface.    At  the present time a  drift  is  being run  from the bottom  of  the  shaft  on   the  footwall, every now and then the  men  breaking  into   magnificent   ore.    The  drift has so far been  run  for. 80  feet,  and last week when  75, feet  had  been  reached,   the   vein   suddenly    forked,  though this does not appear as likely to  continue .permanently.    The two veins  or rather the two forks of the one  vein  measure 32 inches in width.    It is safe  to  predict   that  within   the  next   two  years the No.   7  will  pay   its   owners  handsome profits.  The. Crown Point Bonded.  Messrs. Douglas and Wake last week  bonded  the   Crown   Point,   on   James  creek, and  the   adjoining  claims,   the  No. 1 and the No.  2,   also   the  Apache  Chief, Oro Fino and three other claims  in the group, at Rock Creek, to Mr.  G.  Mahon, representing   the  British   Columbia Prospecting Syndicate, of Var-  couver.     Although  the   Crown   Point  was only discovered towards the   close  of last summer   it   is   yet  regarded   as  one of the most promising prospects in  the camp.    The ledge has  been   crosscut in several places and appears to be  from 25 to 60 feet wide.    For  so  large  a  deposit the ore is surprisingly high-  grade, assays giving from 50 to 700 oz.  in silver, $4 to $6 in gold, and   as   high  as 68  per   cent,   lead;   hence   if   when  depth is gained the showing is as good,  the Crown Point will rival the  best  of  the galena mines  of  the  rich   Slocan.  The other claims  at  Rock  Creek   are  merely   good   undeveloped   prospects.  The duration of the bond is six months,  and the syndicate expect to   prove   the  properties as soon as the   snow  leaves  the valleys.    Ten per cent, of the price  ���the amount of  which The  Times   is  not at liberty to divulge���mentioned in  the bond has been paid to the  owners.  On Sunday some very fine ore was  struck in the shaft of the Jewel at a  depth of a little more than fifty feet.  It is thousrht that the somewhat un-  satisfactory appearance of the claim  last week was due to a "slip." Now  three buckets of ore are hoisted to one  of waste, and there is every indication  of the vein widening. Twelve men are  working on the property.

The Times is requested to mention  that masks for those intending to take  part in the masquerade ball to be given  by the Commercial Club next Friday,  may be obtained from either Messrs.  Miller & L,aw at Anaconda, or from  Mr. Munro at Greenwood.  As Mr. Gibbs has removed from Anaconda, Mr. Keffer has consented to  undertake assay work for prospectors  residing in the vicinity.  No business of great importance was  brought up at the meeting of the   Club.  on Wednesday.    The dance committee  reported that all the arrangements had  been niade and musicians engaged   for  the evening.    Mr. King was   admitted  to  membership ;; the    Club  endorsed  the petition to the Provincial Secretary  asking that Mr. Hind   be   appointed   a  justice of the peace ; and   a  letter was  read by the secretary from a  St.   Paul  firm making enquiries about the   Fast  Chance   mine   in   Skylark    camp.      A  pamphlet  descriptive   of   the   district  will shortly be issued by the Club, and  is now in the hands of the printer.   Before the meeting adjourned,   Mr.   Fur-  ness, a former, resident  of  the  town,  made a few  remarks  stating  that  he  had for some time  past  been   in   communication with capitalists in Eastern  Canada and  England  with  regard   to  the mines of; Boundary Creek.   He had  been successful, he thought,  in   arousing the interest of his   correspondents  in the district, and he   confidently   expected that much capital would   be   invested here this year  in  consequence.  MINING NOTES.  being  The shaft on the Cornucopia, in Central camp, is down 40 feet in fair ore.  The Mother Fode continues to look  well ; the tunnel has now been driven  for 180 feet. -  Four men are working on the Combination,   on  Monday   the  shaft  down 60 feet. ���  Joe Shuster has received the appointment of superintendent of a claim  on Fambert creek, owned by a St.  Paul syndicate."  The Fittle Giant mine, near Pierre's  lake on the Marcus road, is turning out  to be one of the best properties along  the Kettle river.  A shaft is being sunk on the Adirondack, in Kimberly camp, and is now  down 29 feet in solid pyrrhotite ore,  showing also considerable copper pyrites.  "Jim" Clarke, owner of the Lone  Pine, in Fureka camp on the reservation, has a force of thirty men at work  developing the claim. $200,000 has  been offered on a bond for this property, and refused.  Some specimens of ore sent from the  Rambler, on Pass creek, to Spokane  have attracted much attention from  mining men in that place. From assays recently made Rambler ore was  found to run as high as $57 to the ton.  The shaft is now down about 35 feet.  The British Columbia Prospecting-  Syndicate recently bonded the Orphan,  a half-interest in the Fulu, and a quarter interest in the Wake, all in Central  camp, from Mr. Douglas and his partners. The syndicate also purchased  110,000 Silver King shares from Messrs.  Douglas and Atwood.  J. Duford sold his interests this week  in two groups of four and six claims,  respectively in Kimberley and Skylark  camps, to Mr. F. F. Cordingley, of  Victoria. Among the claims sold in  the latter camp are the Barrow, Dr.  Jim and American Fagle, all of which  are considered promising prospects.  ��U��  ��gw      tjf*  *&  WQU ��d$W  ft    ������      ..���..rn^^A.ro       ��     ���      II  1  I  i  ^s-f&ss*ttss*p?s*ii&ss/fy?/sjttssjf&ssjfrfrsjfy?ss/fr7ssi&?/jjt&s^^  DEALERS   IN  w  v,    - .      r , .... . ^  Hardware, Paints and Oils, Sash and  Sis.  ���Sit.

Sutherland has already r "put  up" 175 tons of ice in anticipation of  meeting a large local demand in the  summer months.  Mr. J. "W. Powell has been offered  $1,000 for two lots on Copper street.  These lots were sold ten months ago  for $100 apiece.  A twenty-stamp mill is to be erected  in the course of the next two months  on the Tinhorn claim, owned by Messrs.  Dier and Davidson, at Fair view.  Frank Ruckles, of Ruckles Bros.,  owners of one of the most valuable  ranches on the lower Kettle river, was  a visitor in Greenwood this week.  The alleged carelessness and want of  courtesy on the part of the post-master  at Rock creek has been made the subject of complaint to the Postmaster  General.  A gentleman who recently arrived  from Butte, Montana, predicted,, the  other day that half the population of  that state would immigrate to Boundary this ensuing summer.  A flock of between forty and fifty  white swans made Vaseux lake their  headquarters until last month, when  they separated into small bunches and  now frequent the riffles and open  reaches of the Okanagan river.  It is reported that a man named  Warren has met with great success in  the use, of the divining rod at Fairview.  As an instance, he disclosed seven distinct ledges on the Bullion, claim, the  existence of two eonly having been  heretofore known. He also readily  traced a blind ledge for a distance of  two and a half miles.  Messrs. Smith & Mcl^eod, of Vernon,  are building a large addition to their  sash and door factory and putting in  new machinery, finding it difficult to  keep up with their orders. The firm  have already considerable patronage  from the southern interior, and will in  future put in a stronger bid to capture  any orders which cannot be handled  by the local mills.  It is likely that quite an addition to  the "Vernon colony" of Greenwood  residents will be made within the next  month. Messrs. Campbell Bros, contemplate opening a branch of their furniture business here; Mr. Thos. Crow-  ell will open as a builder and contractor, and Mr. Bell is likely to follow in  the same line ; Mr. Fleming, Mr. Dell,  Mr. Robt. Hall and Mr. Jackson are  among others who, regard Greenwood  as a good place to stay with.  The provincial government has made  a wise ruling in southern Yale, worthy  of imitation all over the province, to  the effect that all official notices be advertised in each of the three papers in  the district. The custom generally  followed is to patronize (subsidize, it  really amounts to) only such papers as  support the government, irrespective  .of public convenience. The charge on  the public purse will not be materially  increased, as the number of insertions  of each notice is strictly limited. No  paper has now an " official " monopoly.

To the Editor, Boundary Creek Times :  Sir,���In 3-our issue of Jan. 16th there appeared an   anonymous1 letter  in  which  the writer  (who is unknown to me!  makes, certain allegations regarding the conduct of government.    It  has since come to 1113- knowledge that the said  article was .mainly inspired b3; a report that the  recorder at Midwaj-  had  been  endeavoring to  unjustly acquire a commission on the " No. 7 "  claims rightf uil\- belonging to Mr. Thompson,  of Midwa3-, through whom the claim was bonded.    In justice to the recorder  I  desire  to ' sa\'.  that  in  1113-  dealings  with  him  he  has  acted,  throughout in a straightforward manner ; and  that although there was  at  first  some  misunderstanding   between    us    regarding   certain  terms of the bond, the matter was  made  right  b3r him as soon as his  attention  was called  to  it.     The  report alluded  to  probabU-   had  its  origin in  the circumstance  that  the recorder  did not at first wish to extend the bond through  Mr. Thompson, because one of  the  owners of  the claim had instructed him not to do so.   The  said owner, however, subsequent^-reversed his  decision,  upon  conditions  which  I  arranged,  and the recorder (as his attorue3') at once complied with the same.     At  no  time during  the  transaction has it been the intention   either of  the recorder or the Boundatw Miues Co. to deal  in ati3r wa3" unfairly-with Mr. Thompson,whose  part in the entire business has been  all  that  I  could desire.  I do not wish to have the recorder  so unjustly criticised, and I trust that 3-0u will  accord this letter the same  prominence iu 3rour  paper that was given to the anoii3-mous  letter.  ���Yours trul3-, FREDERICK KEFFER.  [As this subject has resolved itself into a  purel3' personal controvers3r between Mr.  Keffer, Mr. Thompson, and the1 Recorder, the  correspondence.in these columns is now closed.  ���Times Propr's.]  GREENWOOD AND VICINITY.  Mr. G. A. Rendell left for Rossland  6n Sunday, on business for the firm.  Mr. Fred. McMann has been spending a few days over the range,���report  says chasing black-tail deer on snOw-  shoes.' .-y"-      '.' -"���';���  Mrs. Wiseman, of Grand Forks, who  has been a patient at the hospital for  the past two weeks, is reported convalescent.  J. Mclveod last week sold his cottag-ev  on Silver street at a good figure to Mr.  Powell, and is now buildine-a residence  on Iyohg T_,ake street.  Mr. Robt. Wood has been obliged to  undergo a surgical operation at Victoria, but from latest accounts he is on  a fair way towards complete recovery.  Mr. Iyouis Bosshart, who was reported quite ill at Astoria some short time  ago, is now at The L/ittle ; Iyog -Cabin,  Spokane,..and will be in Green wopd  about the end of the month.      ; '  A deal of considerable importance  in connection with the Grand Forks  townsite is in progress this week, the  particulars of which the principals wish  kept out of the papers for the present.  Mr. J. Gerniaine, of Mihnedosa,  Manitoba, arrived in Greenwood, by  private conveyance on Wednesday.  He contemplates investing in property  in the vicinity.  T. McKay, charged with "holding-  tip" a mail-carrier near Grand Forks,  was acquitted by the local magistrates  last Saturday, there being no evidence  to show that he had committed the  offence.  The boiler at the planing mill gave  out this week, necessitating a special  trip to Northport by Mr. Fisher, to  bring in a new boiler and other machinery which the company have lying  in bond at that point. y."-.-"c'! ���  Hon. A. J. McColl, Judge of Supreme  Court, will be in the district about the ,  15th inst.,. arid with his usual thoughtful consideration has notified the resident members of the legal fraternity  that he will be pleased to hear any applications that may be brought before  him in his official capacity.  As the result of a two days' canvass  by Mr. Black and others the names of  nearly sixty applicants were sent this  week to the Registrar at Vernon to be  placed on the roll of Provincial Voters,  from Greenwood alone. Those who  imagine that thcBoUndary Creek towns  are populated exclusively by Americans will be somewhat disillusioned.  In the course of the next few weeks  Mr. Bealey, the well-known banker of  Rossland, will open a branch bank at  Greenwood, and erect a suitable building on the site already purchased for  the purpose on Government street. A  business block is also to be built shortly on the lot next to that occupied by  The Times building on Government  street.  The Hon. Mr. Forster, late Minister  of Finance under Sir Charles Tupper's  administration, arrived in Greenwood  by Morrison's stage on Tuesday, leaving early on the following morning  for Rossland, after visiting an old  friend, Mr. I. H. Hallett. Mr. Forster  is president of' the British-Canadian  Gold Fields Co., owning the Ethiopia  and other claims in the camp.  As an indication of the value of the  claims now being worked by the Boundary Creek M. & M. Co., not only are  the miners satisfied to work and take  their pay in the company's stock, but  the local newspapers also are carrying  the advertising on the same system.  The Midway paper is willing to risk a  full page ad. on the proposition, and  The Times will issue an illustrated  supplement shortly. As miners and  newspaper men usually have exceptional facilities for ascertaining the  bona  fides  of  a  mining  scheme,   the  public are generally safe in   following  where they lead.y ^  The soda-water works were started  up on Tuesday, arid the first bottles of  "pop" to be manufactured on Boundary Creek, were opened and the contents sampled by local connoiseurs,  who passed a very favorable opinion.  Mr. F. Wood, the proprietor, has already received large orders for soda-  water from Carson, Grand Forks and  the other towns of the district.  Among the arrivals on Wednesday's  stage were Mr. J. P. Taylor and Mr. S.  Taylor, of Barrow-in-Furness, England, elder brothers of the late Mr. R.  N. Taylor, of Greenwood. Mr. S. Taylor is the head of a large pharmaceutical establishment at Barrow, and is  also a very clever photographer.    Dur  ing  his   trip   from  Fngland   he  took  some sixty views of scenes in the  Rocky Mountains and other points of  interest. Mr. S. Taylor will reside for  the next few riionths in Greenwood and  remain in charge of his deceased brother's business until other arrangements are' made. It is, however^ to be  hoped that he will see his way to; become a permanent resident of the town.  He is immensely pleased with what he.  has seen of the country so far.  Greenwood, B.C.
