KV-*  A Weekly Paper published in the interests ot the Boundary Creek Mining District.  1  Vol. Ill,  GREENWOOD, EG, SATURDAY, DECEMBER 4, 1897.  ���(o  No. 13/  THAT   QUARANTINE.  "J,*HE' splendid isolation which Boundary  Creek district enjoys becomes inconvenient at times.   The  absence of a telegraph line  or  of   a  railway by  which information could be speedily conveyed to  Ottawa, has given an irresponsible quack an op-  portunity of harassing  the  people  and  fleecing  freighters out of hard-earned money.    When the  Hon. A. S. Fisher, the minister of agriculture, is in possession of all the facts in connection  with   this  quarantine, we  feel confident that Dr. Hickingbottom will be instantly dismissed.    The apparent object of the present  quarantine is  not to stamp out disease but to coerce unfortunate freig-hters  into paying- heavily for having-  their  horses  examined by  Hickingbottom.    We cannot for  a  single  moment  believe  that the  Dommioh   government  has  clothed  a  man with  authority to levy tribute on those who are driving- along- the  public highway.    It would be simply an outrage to g-ive unlimited power to Hicking-bottom.    At Grand Forks we questioned all the freighters we came across and found that no  two had paid similar amounts for having-  their horses examined.    Hicking-bottom forced them into having- an examination, sized up his victims, and charged accordingly.   He  gave no   acknowledgments for  amounts  received  by him.  Where did this money go���?.   Can anyone  imagine  that the  Department of. Agriculture would give one of its quarantine  officers authority to force people into paying  him  any sum  which he might ask ?    Dr. Hickinbottom is paid by the Dominion government and  he  has  not  the right  to plunder  poor freighters.  We believe that the Department of Agriculture has made  a serious blunder in appointing Dr. Hickingbottom to any  responsible position. If quarantining is necessary to stamp  out glanders, the officer in charge should be a veterinary  surgeon with further qualifications than those in the possession of Dr. Hickingbottom. It is true that he brings to  the position an experience gained while in the employ of  the provincial government,���-an experience which involved  the expenditure of thousands of dollars of provincial money  and which entitled him to the dismissal which he received.  Hickingbottom may have all the qualifications necessary to  create as much trouble as possible : but when the freight of  the district is tied up ; when there is a shortage of supplies;  when business men are losing hundreds of dollars because  of the non-arrival of their goods ; when the hard-earned  money of freighters is being transferred from their pockets  to the pockets of Dr. Hickingbottom,���surely the people can  demand that quarantine matters be placed in the hands of  someone entitled to at least a small measure of public  confidence.  We would strongly advise the Minister of Agriculture to  quarantine Hickingbottom for at least sixty days. It might  be even advisable to subject him to the Mallein test. Then,  if the Minister is at all anxious about the prevalence of  glanders in the district, let him engage a competent veterinary surgeon, and we think he will find that all the fuss  about glanders has arisen, not because of the prevalence ot  the disease, but because an impecunious quack wished to  get a few dollars from the Dominion exchequer.  *������%    ��&   *%  KtLST "S.<v n.*.  '"lt-  ���>tf  THE CITY COUNCIL.  In the absence of the Mayor, Aid. Rendell presided at the  regular meeting of the council held on Monday evening  last. Aid. Barrett, Phelan and Calloway were also present  at the meeting.    After the minutes of the last regular meet  ing and special meeting were read and adopted, a petition  signed by about 50 residents of Greenwood was read. The  petitioners drew attention to the fact that there are two  magazines containing powder within the city limits and  asked the council to take such action as would secure the  removal of the magazines to a safer distance.  Aid. R:endell stated that his firm ''were making arrangements to build a magazine the other side of the I^ast Chance  mine and that they would remove powder thereto as quickly  as possible. He quite agreed that the magazines should  not be within the city. Aid. Galloway, Barrett and Phelan  were also* of the same opinion as the petitioners and Aid.  Phelan moved and Aid. Barrett seconded ���" that the petition  be received and that dealers in powder be informed that all  powder must be stored in magazines at least three miles  from city limits and that powder within city limits must be  removed before January 1st, 1898."     The resolution carried.  The council then went into committee to further consider  the License, Road, and Dog tax by-law. The different  clauses were passed with but little discussion and the committee rose and reported the by-law complete with amendments. It was read a third time and then referred to the  acting Mayor and City Clerk who were requested to get the  opinion of a barrister as.to the validity of the by-law. .  Oh. motion of Aid. Phelan, seconded by Aid. Barrett,  Aid. Galloway was appointed to, act as a member of License  Commissioners should the Mayor be unable to attend.  Aid. Galloway gave notice that at the next meeting of  the council he will introduce a by-law to regulate the municipal elections for 1898. \  Aid. Phelan gave notice that at the next regular meeting  he would introduce a by-law fixing the rate of taxation for  1898.    The council then adjourned.  ���SjF        If?  THE LIBERAL   PLATFORM.  The Liberal platform expresses the views of the major it y  of the people of British Columbia so plainly that it requires  no explanation or defense. We would have been satisfied  with the publication of the platform without any comments  were it not for the fact that our attention has been called  to the remarkable criticism offered by the Turner-Dunsmuir  organ, the Victoria Colonist.  The chief government organ is particularly strong in  condemning the clause that suggests a tax on the output of  coalmines. It holds that this is an indefensible proposition  which needs only to be understood to be rejected. The Illiberal platform urges that coal mines be placed on the same  footing as other mines with respect to taxation. The Colonist holds that a tax on the output of coalmines ie indefensible. The Colonist is severe on one set of masters. The  editor of the Colonist ought to have known that the government is responsible for numerous acts in which provision is  made for taxing coal mines. Has the government done something indefensible, that only needs to be understood to be  rejected? Has the Colonist never heard of this clause :  " There is reserved to and for the use of Her Majesty, her  heirs, and successors a royalty of five cents upon and in  respect to every ton of coal raised or g-otten from any lands  acquired under the provisions of this act. During the past  few years this clause has been inserted in every act which  grants public lands to railway companies."  As the Colonist is compelled to serve two sets of masters,  it often defends one at th�� expense of the other. In its  eagerness to serve the Dunsmuirs, it assails the legislation  of the Turner government.  The Colonist would probably not object to seeing the output of coal mines taxed if the Dunsmuirs' coal were exempted. If the coal from the B. C. Southern lands or the  Columbia and Western lands is to be taxed, why should not  the coal from Dunsmuir's lands also be taxed ?  fir  .^�����>^^ SS!&@S@$g&i  e 9    jwiwi    n,1(l  i   v ������;���   vr ������ .

McDonnell's pre-emption of 320 acres and adjacent lands, upon  which are excellent mill-sites* and which give access to an abundant supply of water for power purposes. Forty acres,  of the pre-emption have been sub-divided into town lots, and the new townsite thus established has been named  which is most favorably situated at the junction of Boundary and Eholt creeks, and at a convenient distance from  several important mining camps.

The  Aid. present were Aid. Barrett, Galloway, Phelan and Rendell. Messrs.  Rolt & Co., of Rossland, who represent  the Rossland Syndicate, appealed  against the assessment and the)r were  represented by Mr. G. R. Naden. The  Court held that the Rossland Syndicate  property" had been assessed on the  same basis as all property in the city  and ho reduction was made. Beyond  changing a few names on the roll for  those of owners who had recently acquired property in the city, no alterations were made in the roll.  Secured Big Game.  W. W. Gibbs and Scott MacRae returned to Greenwood oh Sunday after  a four weeks' hunting expedition in the  mountains back of Dog- Lake. Judging from the number of rams'heads  that they brought home with them the  trip was a very successful one. Messrs.  Gibbs and MacRae went after moun-,  tain sheep, and they succeeded in getting them, six heads bearing- mute but  eloquent testimony to the prowess of  the sportsmen. Considering the fact  that the mountain sheep have been hunted for weeks by sportsmen coming in  by the way of Penticton, the local  huntsmen are congratulating them^  selves on their success;  One or two doubtful Thomases sav  appearances are deceitful and that  although the heads were brought to  Greenwood there is no proof that  Messrs. Gibbs and McRae did the  shooting. The doubtful"ones even suggest that the game was secured by a  half-breed guide who was hired b3-- the  local sportsmen to accompany them.  Such a reflection affords good grounds  for an action for criminal libel, and we  will be pleased to furnish Mr. Gibbs  with the names of the libelers should  he care to prosecute them.  Quarantine   Fees.  Dr. Hickingbottom to a Grand Forks  Miner representative explained that  " when the sum of $15 was asked it covered the inspector's fee and also fees  for putting animals through the Mallien test." The doctor also stated that  he was entitled to a fee of $1 for inspection. One is forced to come to the conclusion that $14 is an unusually high  fee for the Mallien test when it is considered that the Mallien is furnished  by the Department of Agriculture and  costs the doctor nothing.  Transfers.  Mr. A. H. Harrison of the B. C. mine  has acquired additional interests in  Summit camp, the following- transfers  having been recorded at the Grand  Forks office: O, K. Butts to A. H.  Harrison all interest in the Vaslile and  Rebelle; W. H. Keough to A. H. Harrison all interest in the Louckee; John  Keoug-h to A. H. Harrison all interest  in Novelt3r Fraction ; A. E.

Taylor & Co., are closing out their business   at   Rock Creek.  The Vernon News expects its plant  in next week when it will again begin  publication.  Some exceeding^ rich ore is being  taken from^the shaft on the Spring-  dale in Skylark camp.  The Tin Horn mill is working very  satisfactorily. A clean up will be  made after 30 days'run.  The holder of ticket No. 9, was the  winner of the raffle for the musical box.  If he will call at the Windsor hotel he  can receive the same.  It is reported that Messrs. Hay and  McCallum are negotiating for the sale  of the upper portion of Grand Forks to  a Rossland syndicate.  Dr. Jakes has been kept busy during  the past two weeks attending to different forms of sickness but happily all  patients are recovering- under his treatment.  Mrf Jas. Price, Rossland, has   transferred Vj, interest in the   Free  Coinage  interest in the Eegal Tender to  i/  Both   claims  ana  Mr.   Fred   Williamson;  are in Greenwood Camp." 0.  Thos. Catherwood, Spokane, one of  the shareholders in the Winnipeg Co.,  and Duncan Mcintosh, the managing  director, were among the visitors to  Greenwood this week.  The Greenwood skating- rink was  flooded yesterday and will be ready for  skating on Monday, by which time  Messrs. Russell & Co's.  of skates will reach Greenwood,  consignment  ���Mr. T. McK. Eanibly died at his residence, Okanagan lake, last week. Deceased was a brother of Mr. C. A. R.  Ivambly, the Gold Commissioner, and  was much respected throughout the  district.  The directors of the Winchester Mining Company of Fairview have decided to place the balance of the treasury  stock���50,000 shares���on the market.  The price will be 30 cents. This company recently purchased the Stem-  winder claim.  Mr. J. F. Hemenway of the Old Ironsides mine was in the city this week  and reported that good progress is being* made in the developing the property. The machinery is working  smoothly. Over 20 men are being employed by this company.  Mr. Thos. Hardy has leased the  Palace hotel, Anaconda, to Mr. Berger.  The Palace is one of the best hotels in  the district and under its new management, it is expected that it will retain  its old time excellence. The change  was rendered necessary in order that  Mr. Harcry might devote his whole time  to his hardware business.  Messrs. Rendell & Co., and the Greenwood City Mercantile Co., have succeeded in moving some freight from  Grand Forks by special teams. Several cases of coal oil have been received, consequently the. demand for tallow  candles has subsided. Some of the  goods have been destroyed by frost  owing to the long delay on the road.  Messrs. Russell & Co., and numerous j  skaters, were disappointed upon the arrival of the Penticton stage on Wednesday. In order that advantage might  be taken of the ideal skating- weather,  Messrs. Russell & Co. instructed the  stage line to bring- the skates from Penticton. A heav}- box was brought but  when opened it was found to contain  not skates but hooks and other hard-  .ware. The skates will be in to-morrow, however.  Election of Officers.  ���'Court Boundary," I.O.F., elected  officers for the ensuing year at its regular meeting last Thursday evening-.  A unanimous vote of thanks was also  tendered to those who took part in the  Foresters' concert. The officers elected  will be installed at the first meeting in  January.    They are as follows '  Court Deputj-���R. Smailes.  Chief Rang-er���Georg-e A. Guess.  V.C.R.--J. C. Goupil.  J.P.C.R.���D. Ross.  Recording-Secretary���Geo. F. Miller.  Treasurer���J. P. Flood.

The election of a chaplain,  financial  secretary, and superintendent juvenile  Foresters, was deferred until the  next  reg-ular meeting.  Machinery for the B.C.  Mr. A.'.H.- Harrison, who bonded the  B.C. mine in Summit camp, went out  to Rossland last week and purchased a  complete plant for the mine from F. R.  Mendenhall, agent for the Canadian  Rand Drill Co. The plant includes a  five-drill compressor, a 30-horse-power  boiler, a sinking pump, a 20-horse-  power hoist, and a full line of supplies.  The cost will reach nearly $5,000. The  plant has already been shipped from  Rossland and ought to be on the ground  within a few weeks. The purchase of  machinery shows that Mr. Harrison  has every confidence in the property.  In fact he has refused some very flattering offers for the purchase of the B.C.  The list of properties in Boundary  Creek district that are being developed  by machinery is continually increasing  and in a short time mines will be in a  position to produce daily such a larg-e  quantity of ore that railway companies  will show greater anxiety to secure the  trade of the district. With complete  mining plants such properties as the  Winnipeg, Golden Crown, Old Ironsides, Jewel and B. C. will soon be sufficiently developed to maintain a steady  output.  Other companies lire also contemplat-,  ing the purchase of  machinery   and it  is altogether probable that before May  next at least a dozen mines   in the district will be operated by machinery.

Two  loan by-laws which were submitted to  to the people narrowly escaped defeat  and now the city has to face a legal  suit instituted by one of the rate-payers.  The trouble seems to have risen from  the fact that the council was attempting to do too much while the city was  in its infancy. The council of Greenwood apparently have adopted a safer  course by not, undertaking extensive  improvements until such time as the  city can control all revenue. All cities  incorporated under the Speedy Incor-,  poration Act were handicapped from  the fact that a portion of the revenue  for this year was retained by the government.  Next year the new cities should be in  a better position and those which were  not burdened by heavy debts this year  can safely undertake useful public  w;brks.  There is much to be done by next  year's council in Greenwood. The  grading of streets, the establishment  of an efficient system of fire protection  and the construction of many works  necessary in a growing ,,city will require the expenditure of a large sum  of money. By judiciously borrowing  and carefully expending a fairly large  sum of money, there is no good reason  why municipal government cannot be  carried on here without the annoying  experiences that have fallen to the lot  of Rossland.  The Divining Rod.  In a recent issue of the Western Mining World is an article defending the  Divining Rod. Among the examples  quoted in support of this novel plan of  locating water is the following : '' William Ward Spinks, a Justice in British  Columbia walked about over his  grounds for an hour blindfolded and  carrying a divining rod in his 'fingers.  Every time the wand dipped an attendant drove a peg into the earth. In  many cases the justice would pass over  a spot where the rod had moved before  and it would invariably give the same  sign again. He dug wells at only two  of the places indicated, but got water  in both. The man declared that if he  stood over a garden hose with a divining rod in his fingers he could tell by  its conduct when the water was turned  on and off."  Hotel Arrivals.

The residents of Copper street have  petitioned the city council to take sUch  steps as will prevent horses being  watered in Twin creek on Copper street  where householders now get their  water supply.  It is reported that Mr. Heinze has  sold all his interest in the Trail smelter  and the Columbia & Western Railway  for the sum of $2,000,000, the purchasers being the Gooderhams of Toronto.  The report has not been confirmed.  Messrs. Ralph Smailes, A. S. Black,  R. Houston and D. Ross paid Grand  Forks a visit on Saturday last.

G.  MS  m  II  Mr. Bostock, M.P.  Mr. Hewitt Bostock, M.P;, left Ducks  last Wednesday for Boundary Creek.  In a letter to the Times he stated that  he intended coming straight through  to Penticton and from there to Fair-  view and Camp McKinney. He expects to reach Midway to-morrow and  will be in Greenwood about Tuesday  next. Mr. Bostock intends holding a  meeting here and probably at Midway.  He also wants to see one or two of the  nipst developed claims in the district  as he is anxious to get a good idea of  the resources. From here he goes to  Grand Forks and then to Marcus.  As representative of the district in  the federal parliament Mr. Bostock  will be called upon to give much information regarding this portion of his  large constituency. His visit is for  the purpose of acquiring this information and the residents should be in a  position to give it to him. But are  they ? Last week The Times suggested the organization of a non-political  organization through which the people  as a unit could give expression to  their views. The requirements of  the district rise above party politics  and all those interested should exert  themselves in placing matters before  the member in as strong a light as possible.  There are many matters to which  Mr. Bostock's attention should be  called. First of all is a railway ; but  the district needs an improvement  in the mail service, a telegraph line,  and other public works. Then there  are many questions in which the district is interested. For instance, should  the enforcement of an export duty on  ore come tip for discussion in the house  Mr. Bostock should have the views of  the people of this district.  Mr. Bostock is a conscientious and  hard working- member. He has striven  to look after the interests of a district  which is larger than any other constituency in the Dominion. He should  receive every assistance from the elec  tors. We hope that during his visit, he  will be furnished with such information as will materially aid him in the  work of securing for the district such  government assistance as its importance/demands.  Since the above was written a requisition numerously signed by ratepayers has been presented to Aid. Rendell,  acting-mayor; requesting him to call a  public meeting to-night (Friday) for��  the purpose of discussing the best  means of placing the requirements of  the district before Mr. Bostock.  It is reported that Mr. Pittendrigh of  Rock Creek intends leaving for Teslin  L,ake in a few weeks. He intends taking charge of a hotel there. F. M.  Yorke, Victoria, Mr. Pittendrigh's  brother-in-law is building a steamer on  the lake for transportation of men and  supplies for the Klondyke.  ��,(��.  ^^^^l^gg-*^^-  MISS O, MEDILL,  Dress-maker,  GREENWOOD,  B.C.

Mr. Tye informed a Times representative that he was  in this district partly on mining and  partly on railway business. He is interested in the Bruce and he is so well  pleased with the property that he  stated that he had now a personal,interest in seeing a road built into the district for the Bruce will-be a shipper in  a short time.  Mr. Tye did not state the nature of  the railway business on which he was  engaged. He acknowledged however;  that he was here in the interests of, the  C. P. R. Co., having resigned his position as engineer of the Columbia &  Western some months ago. Mr. Tye is  confident that railway connection for  Boundary Creek will not be much longer delayed;________________  ' ���'.' The Poor Man's Route."  The citizens of Spokane are booming  the ." poor man's  route" to, Klondyke.  The route is overland by way of  Ashcrof t and Telegraph Creek. Those  who will be induced to outfit in Spokane will be grievously disappointed  ���when they come to settle with the Canadian Customs officers. By the time  they pay from $100 to $150 duty on  their outfits they will come to the conclusion that it would have been more  profitable to buy supplies on the British side.  The Voters' List.  The municipal voters' list for the  city of Greenwood for the year 1898  ���will present a rather unique appearance in as much as it will contain the  name of only one voter who has qualified on a householder's qualification.  Under the Municipal Act householders to be properl}'" qualified must have  been residents of the city for 12 months  previous to November 30th, 1897. As  Greenwood was not a city of many  houses at that time and as the majority  of the electors are property holders the  small list of householders is explained.  We think however that there are householders properly qualified who have  neglected to have their names registered and consequent!}' will have no vote  in municipal matters for another year.  Work on the Anaconda group has  been suspended temporarily until advices are received from England.  There has been considerable trouble  with the transcontinental wires and  consequently the representatives of  English capital operating here have  been greatly inconvenienced.

COPPER STREET, GREENWOOD CITY, B.C.  fapSIIl^^ ���   ~' S^^^OTrTTSW^V THE   BOUNDARY   CREEK   TIMES,  HEINZE'S  ROAD.  Mr. R. T. Daniel, of Trail, in an interview with a representative of the  Spokesman-Review, had this to say regarding the railway situation :  "I have no doubt whatever that Mr.  Heinze's company will dispose of the  smelter and railroad properties to the  Canadian Pacific and there is positive  assurance that in case the deal is consummated the. new owners will, triple  the capacity of the smelter and make a  strong pull for all the business of the  Kootenays. They will also push the  line of road across the Boundary Creek  country to Penticton and Trail will  therefore become the smeltering center  of the great mining country tributary  to if. This deal will probably reach  consummation this week as I understand a meeting of the directors of Mr.  Heinze's corporation is to be held to  consider the matter and to take final  action.  It might seem if one were to look at  the matter without carefully considering the situation, that Mr. Heinze is in  a bad box and that the Canadian Paca-  fic could almost force him to any terms  it might choose to name. His transportation lines begin nowhere and end  nowhere, and apparently the big transcontinental line could invade his territory and wipe him off the map. But  such is not the case. By a combination, that evinces good generalship on  his part, Mr. Heinze holds the whip  _hand and may dictate hisown terms of  sale to the Canadian Pacific. He does  not stand alone. His little roads have  cut a wide swath in the Kootenays and the Canadian Pacific has  been the sufferer. At his back stand  the Great Northern and Northern Pacific interests, which are closely allied  as friends of Heinze even thoug-h they  may be wide apart on other matters.  For his roads, in connection with the  S. F. -&..N., give these two great lines  access to one of the .richest portions of  the British possessions which the Canadian Pacific also traverses and which  "the latter considers its own territory.  The result has been apparent in the  province, for freight rates have been  brought down by international competition which cannot be regulated by  interstate commerce, commissions nor  any other power. We are paying today in the mining regions of British  Columbia at least 20 per cent, lower  freight rates on supplies shipped in  than we did two years ago, and the  bulk of the business is done over the  little lines. With such powerful backing Mr. Heinze may laugh at the Canadian Pacific if they do not choose to  comeil^his terms,  '?��  The Needs of the District.  Mr. Donald Graham,�� M. P. P., has  written to a residentof Grdenwood urging that the committee to whom was  referred the preparing of a list of the  needs of the district should make their  report at once. Mr. Graham in his letter stated that he was asked by the Department of Lands and Works for a  list of the requirements of the district  and he was anxious to have full information concerning every locality. The  committee have been busy preparing  such a list but find that the government have done so little in the past  that there are innumerable public improvements needed. '  The Athelston  Bonded.  The pioneer mining men who made  money operating in Kootenay are now  turning  their  attention  to   Boundary  Creek district Some of the most successful operators in the Kootenay district have become interested  in   Boun-  ��� ��� ���     , ''���-,'.  dary Creek properties. " Patsy" Clark  one of the original owners of the War  Fagle is likely to make another fortune  out of the Snowshoe which he recently  bonded and the principal shareholders  in the Josie Company have secured  control of a promising property in Wellington camp.  '( As was stated in the Times last week  the Athelston <jwas bonded by a Spokane syndicate but particulars were  not then to hand. It is now learned  that the bond was given by Messrs.  Ivorihg, Crane and Snodgrass, who are  heavily interested in the Josie Company. They are shrewd and enterprising mining men and it is their intention to thoroughly develop the property .& They haye already several men  at work and the force will be increased  as the work proceeds. The Athelston  is situated about a quarter of'a mile  below the Winnipeg. It is owned by ���  the Mack Brothers one of whom was  interested in the .Winnipeg. The  Athelston is said by experienced minting men who have examined it to be a  most promising looking property and  likely to take rank with the Winnipeg-  arid Golden Crown.  The bond is for $15,000 with 10 per  cent, in cash and the balance within a  Year.  Cariboo Dividend.  The Cariboo Mining, Milling &  Smelting Co., operating the Cariboo  mine at Camp McKinney has declared  its 17th dividend. The amount is the-  same as the last one $16,000 and is payable on December 10. This is a two  percent, dividend and brings total payments of the company up to $189,000.  The last dividend was paid on Septeni-'  ber 10th. In the mean time the company has installed much new machinery at a large expense.  NOTES.  The engineers for the Columbia &  Western Railway Co. are busy preparing their field notes and topographical  maps of the country bet-ween Robson  and Penticton which was surveyed by  them this summer.  Mr. Ellis of Pentir:ton whose cattle  were seized at Oro last week claims he  had a right- to drive cattle through  American territory without a permit.  U. S. Customs oificer McDonald has  telegraphed to Port Town-send for instructions.  Mr. A. H. Scaife, the editor of the  Victoria Province is visiting- in the  east. He was interviewed by the Toronto Globe regarding British Columbia. Discussing railway matters he  said among other things : " At present there is a little annex to the C P.  R. called the Dominion of Canada. I  look forward to the time when there  'will be a little annex to the Dominion  of Canada called the C. P. R."  R. A. Brown ia about to sell the Sunset claim, in the Shriilkameen district.  The Sunset is said to be a rich copper  proposition. Mr. Brown is anxious to  sell in order that he may unravel the  legal tangles into which his beloved  Volcanic has been placed. He has the  greatest confidence in this mountain  of ore. Passing through Greenwood  the other day, he told a friend that he  had enough ore in the Volcanic to pay  off the national debt of Canada, the  national debt of England, the national  debt of the United States, to make all  his friends millionaires, and then he  would be at a loss to know what to do  with the balance.  fr.  The Victoria Times has issued a  special Klondyke number containing  some interesting information regarding the far-famed elderado.  It is reported from Ottawa that P. 2&.  Irving of the firm of Bodwell, Irving  & Duff, Victoria, will be appointed to  the bench in place of Mr. Justice Mc-  Creight who has retired.  �����*-���  s>  :>  Xinas Goods!

Collins.  Owns the "Golden Grown "mineral claim, situated in Wellington camp, Yale District, B,C,  An Unfortunate Accident.  Otto Dillier, the first settler in Greenwood and one of the best known  prospectors of the district, met with a most  unfortunate accident on   Monday last  when his right hand was almost crushed into  pulp.    Mr.   Dillier  was working on the Gold Bug mineral  claim in  Deadwood  camp.    He  had  chopped a  large  tree  on the  claim,   which  after  falling up hili slid on  the   snow to the  stump, catching Mr. Dillier's hand between the butt and the stump.    He was  unable   to   extricate   the    imprisoned  hand   and   called  loudly for help.    In  about     twenty     minutes       the,    men.  employed   at  the  Mother  Ivode  heard  his shrieks, and thinking the cabin  on  the   Gold   Bug   on   fire   rushed over.  They  lost  no   time in  endeavoring to  release the hand,   but the tree being a  large one, it was no easy task to pry it  out from the stump.    Finally they succeeded but Mr. Dillier's hand  presented a most   pitiable   appearance.    The  muscles are torn  away  and  the bones  are crushed.  Mr. Dillier walked to the city and at  ���once consulted Dr. Jakes. The doctor  bandaged the hand but he is not at all  ���confident that amputation will be unnecessary. _______   Reduction  in Price.  ������������������������� ������� ��<������������������ ������<�����������<�������� <�� H��-l-����-��<W��XO����^IHM����t<��'{  Do You  TM4����4����.��4����4*��>M��.Ma��.��<9MMIT  h  Winchester,   Marlin  and  Savage  Rifles.

The Toronto Globe is making a  strong and deserving bid for circulation. Finding that the reduction in  price of paper and the introduction of  typesetting machines have made it  possible to publish the paper at a less  cost, the price has been reduced from  $6 per annum to $4 per annum for the  early morning edition, and the second  edition   has   been  discontinued.    This  ��� o ��  should give their circulation list a  great increase, as it brings within the  reach of every person a dailj' paper  that is g-enerall3r recognized as the  leading paper in Canada. As there is  to be no reduction in the size of the  paper, and every department, including the Saturday illustrated edition,  kept up to its present high standard,  and considering the enormous expense  that it goes to in order to give all the  news ever}*- day, $56 was not too much  to pay for it. At $4 per annum its  subscription list should soon reach the  50.000 mark.  m  j4m  mt  OUR FIvOUR has the name of being the BEST all-round  Flour on the market.
