GREENWOOD, B.G, SATURDAY,   DECEMBER  17, 1898.  119  No, 15  J, P, Graves Has Organized a Strong Gompany  In Montreal to Build a Smelter,  To Treat the Ores of the Knob Hill and Old  Ironsides���A C, P, R, Smelter,  Jay P. Graves will make  a big fortune  in Boundary  Creek and he deserves it.    Not  satisfied  with  floating two  big companies to develop  and  operate two. of  the  largest  mines in  the  world, he  recently organized  a  company to  build  a 400-ton smelter.     The  company   was  'floated   in  Montreal and the principal shareholders are S. H. C. Miner  pf the Granby Rubber  company,  W. H. Robinson of the  Eastern Townships bank, A. C. Gault, one of Montreal's  merchant princes, J. P. Whitney, of  Philadelphia, a son of  the ex-secretary of the  navy, and  other capitalists of the  east.    All  those,mentioned are heavy stockholders in both  the Old Ironsides and Knob  Hill  companies.    Mr.   Graves  has, in connection   with  the  flotation  of  the  two   mining  companies and  the new  smelting company, demonstrated  that he is one of the cleverest mining operators in the West.  Quiet and unassuming, one would hardly suppose  that  he  3 was the financier for two-or  three  companies that are sure  at no distant date to, attract  the  attention  of   the  mining  world.    The   secret  of Mr.   Graves'   strength  lies  in   his  thorough grasp of the details in  connection with his undertakings.    In conversation with Mr. Graves last summer, the  writer was amazed.at his  accurate  knowledge  concerning  every practicable and impracticable undertaking connected  with the development of the mineral resources of Boundary  Creek.    He  at once  pointed  out the  weak -spots^ in one's  arguments, the disadvantages  of  certain positions, the obstacles to be met with in one quarter and the advantages of  -another.    One could not converse with him for half an hour  without becoming |convinced  that he was right, and that  any plan that he might suggest or  adopt would be the best  and the most profitable.    The eastern capitalist desiring to ^  invest his money has to be  convinced  that any proposition  submitted to him is a  business  proposition 'and  then he is  willing to take chances.    It is  more than probable that Mr.  Graves could convince the  eastern  capitalist  that  he was  right even if he were wrong, but the proposition  to build a  smelter to treat the ores of the Knob Hill and Old Ironsides  mines offers so many flattering  inducements, that it is not  surprising to learn  that intending shareholders oversubscribed for the stock by more than  a  million  shares.    The  flotation is one of the most successful ever made in Canada.  The two properties whose ores are to be treated at the  new smelter, have been described more than once in the  columns of The Times. The Old Ironsides is a big mine}  but the Knob Hill is going to be the largest mine of the  kind in the world. The crosscut tunnel in the Knob Hill  ledge is now in 417 feet. It was thought last week that the  "streak" of pay ore had been passed, for values were beginning to decrease. The alarm was a false one and the drills  are still pounding through pay ore. The "streak" of pay  ore referred extends from the mouth of the tunnel to the  face���now 417 feet. From this crosscut over 7,000 tons of  ore have been taken and there is not a pound of waste on  the dump. It is not all of high value, but the company, by  treating its own ore, will make a handsome profit from any  portion of the dump. Some ��� people refuse to believe in or  cannot appreciate this enormous Knob Hill ledge. The  mining history of the world does not reveal anything like  it. In this connection it might be stated that the Spokesman-Review was informed some three weeks ago that-:.'  the tunnel on the*Knob Hill���137 feet in length���had  crosscut the ledge. A private letter was written to the  mining editor, than whom there is no brighter or more  reliable newspaper man in, the West. The letter briefly  mentioned the length of the tunnel and size of ledge. He  evidently thought that an attempt was being made to  "jolly" him and refrained from making the correction until  the information was corroborated by several reliable  authorities. The Knob Kill is simply a mountain of self-  fluxing ore. The Old Ironsides is a close second. Our authority for the statement that the ores are practically self-  fluxing is Mr. Frederic Keffer, M. E., the manager of the .  ��Mother Ivodemine. Mr. Keffer enlarges upon this point in  an interesting article on Boundary Greek ores, which will  .appear in the Christmas issue of The Times. .Mr. Keffer  bases his statement on the result of a number of analyses  of Old Ironsides ore. Analyses made by other mining experts substantiate Mr. Keffer's statements.  L/ast year, when the application for the Corbin charter  was being considered by parliament, the cry was raised that  the construction of the Corbin roak would mean the expor-  tion of Boundary Creek ores to American smelters. Those  acquainted with the mineral resources of the district, knew  that Boundary Creek ores had to be smelted it home. It is  also safe to state that the ore from the enormous ledges will  be smelted by the owners of the properties. With the  present prices paid by customs smelters, there is more  money to be made in treating ore than there is in mining it.  A customs smelter not only charges for the treatment of  ore but also discounts the market values of the copper, gold  and silver in the ores. These discounts on Old Ironsides or  Knob Hill ore, will amount to almost $5 a ton, in itself a  handsome profit. What is true of the Knob Hill and Old  Ironsides is also true regarding the Mother Ivode, B. C. and  other big properties in the district. The extent of the ore  bodies justifies each big company in erecting its own reduction works.  After these are established, there is plenty of ore left  for customs smelting. The Canadian Pacific Railway company realizes this fact, and Mr. Whyte has announced that  the company intends erecting a 1,000-ton smelter in the-  Boundary Creek district. The site has not yet been selected, but negotiations are in progress fore a suitable site  near Boundary Falls, about four miles below Greenwood. It  is reported that work on this smelter will be commenced in  a very short time.  Mr. Graves has not yet selected his site, but unless he  changed his mind since last fall, when he visited the district, he is still in favor of some point below Greenwood.  His  views   in  this   respect   are  endorsed  by  Mr. S. H. G.  Miner, who also visited the  district in  company  with Mr.  Graves.  In view of the fact that there is now some assurance that  smelters are to be erected and that those having an intimate  knowledge of the district maintain that Boundary Creek  ores, to be profitably treated, must be treated at home, will  not those who honestly or designedly objected to the Corbin  charter, on the grounds that Boundary Creek ores would be  hauled out of the country, withdraw their opposition and  assist in securing a charter for the road. A competitive  railroad means cheaper supplies, cheaper fuel, and insures  the development of what is sure to become under favorable conditions the largest mining district in the world.

Q  Niagara, Dec. 14.��� A public indignation meeting was held, here on Monday evening last to air the grievances  in regard to a postoffice being established here and as to the appointment  ���of'a";.magistrate. About one hundred  people were present, and it was resolved, to again petition the postoffice  V inspector, as the petition which was  forwarded two months ago had rer  ceiyed. no attention. One witty gentleman suggested that perhaps the post-  office inspector had wandered off and  lost himself ; another suggested getting handbills printed offering a reward for his recovery. Eventually a  petition was signed and again sent to  Victoria. For over two months the  Niagara Stage company, have carried  the mail between Grand Forks and  here, and even went so far as to hire a  saddle horse and send a. special messenger with the mail sack the day-  the stage broke down. < Surely if  people disinterested and receiving no  salary will act so ���promptly, one would  expect even better from salaried  officials. As regards the magistrate,  it was proposed to telegraph the attorney-general regarding the matter,  as no reply had been received from a  previous application.  Mr. Stabile, the Italian banker, had  a narrow escape on Monday evening.  An infuriated drunken Italian, armed  with a Winchester, was in the act of  discharging this weapon when two  men seized him from behind and  wrested the gun from him. It had  seven cartridges in the magazine and  one in the breech. But for the promptness of the two. men no doubt murder  would have been committed. There  being no constable here, the.man got  away; -.  Provincial Constable Dinsmore  passed through here on Monday afternoon to investigate a stabbing case at  McDonnell's camp.  Officer Humptey arrived here from  Gladstone the past week and arrested  an Italian on a charge of stabbing.  The man was taken to Brooklyn.  Arrangements are being made to  hold a public ball on Christmas Eve.  A piano left Marcus last Saturday.  The dance will be held in the White  Star hotel.  Mr. D. G. Cox, provincial constable,  has been transferred from Golden  here, and arrived on to-day's stage.  A fire broke out in W. M. Eaw &  Co's store yesterday morning. It  originated in the roof and was caused'  through a defective stove pipe. Euckily  it was discovered in time and promptly  extinguished by the fire brigade.  The Greenwood CluTb.  A largely attended meeting was held  in Eeckie and Harris' office on Tuesday evening for the purpose of discussing the advisability of forming a  club. A committee was appointed to  secure the signatures of those desirous of joining. The committee met  with every encouragement, over fifty  signatures having been secured. Arrangements are being made to fit up  the second flat of the Barrett block,  which can easily be converted into  comfortable club rooms.  Messrs.

A  most successful meeting- was held  in Rendell & Co's hall  on  Wednesday  evening, when   the  Mining  and Commercial   association was  reorganized.  There  was   a   large   attendance   and  many   new   members   were    enrolled.  As   other  towns   in   the   district  are  ��� growing rapidly and-liave, associations  of their own, it  was decided to call the  the association the Greenwood Mining  and    Commercial    association.     The  meeting was  opened  by  the  appointment of W. L,. C. Gordon   as chairman  and   Duncan Ross   secretary.     After  several of those  present had  spoken,  pointing out  the  necessity   of  an   association to discuss  and  promote matters of public  interest,  J.   Anderson,  manager of the Bank of British North  America, was appointed president, and  W. S. Keith,   secretary.    The  election  of other officers was  deferred until the  next meeting.  Mayor Wood, Thos. Hardy, Wn. T.  Smith, D. Ross, Geo. R. Naden and C.  Scott Galloway were appointed a cdm-  mittee to draw the attention of James  Martin, M. P. P., and the provincial  government to the requirements of the  district.  A. S. Black, I. H. Hallett and D. A.  Cameron were appointed a committee  to take the necessary steps to secure a  charter for a regular board of trade.  Mayor Wood. IT. J. Finucane, ..C.Scott Galloway, J. F. Hemenway, W.  T. Smith and F. Keffer were appointed  a committee to take such steps as they  ma3r deem, expedient in order to hold  and control the trade of all the mining  camps.  X. S. Sperry, W. B. Paton, Geo. R.  Nadeh and W. S. Keith will amend the  constitution and by-laws arid report at  the next meeting.  Ralph Smailes, W. M. L,aw, F.J.  Finucane, D. A. Cameron and W. I/. C.  Gordon will prepare, a memorial dealing with the establishment of a customs house at Greenwood, the improvement of the mail service and the immediate construction <of the C. P. R.  telegraph line.  All the committees will meet during  the week, and the association on  next' Wednesday evening at  o'clock.  eight  The Big Copper.  Austin Hammer, a half owner in the  Big Copper mine in Copper camp, is in  the city. He owns a numbersof valuable properties on the reservation.  Negotiations are in progress for the  sale of the Big Copper to an eastern  syndicate. J. Moran holds the other  half interest. The Big Copper has an  an enormous showing- of high grade  copper ore and if the deal is closed it  will "be for a big price.  D. B. Vincent has gone to Spokane  for a few days.  J. Fred Ritchie, a prominent Rossland surveyor, was in the city on  Thursday. He visited the Okanagan  group of mines near Oroville, in which  he, T.

Martin, the attorney-general, has decided that the Boundary  Creek district shall not be without a  visit from a county court judge until  next   summer,    as   His   Honor  Judge  Judge   Spinks   intimated   at  the   last  sitting- of the court. When the attorney  general, decides   to  do   anything it   is  generally  done.    He  also  appreciates  the necessity of holding court in Green-'  wood.      On   January   28th the,county  court will be held in Greenwood for the  the first time, and on   January 30th  at  Midway.    The lawyers and   other people interested fully appreciate the convenience   of   having   sittings   of   the  county court here.    Their appreciation  would   be   greater   if    the    attorney-  general would go   a   step   farther   and  appoint    a    deputy -registrar    of    the  county  court   for  Greenwood.    Under  present arrangements all papers must  be filed with Mr. McMynn at Midway,  and all summonses   must   be issued by  him.    With   a  D.   R.  C. C.   in   Green-  h wood, these matters could  be attended  to at home.  LOCAL   NOTES.  Thos. McDonnell paid Camp McKinney a visit this week.

This time  the  aggregate  expenditure for  the  public "schools of  the province has been curtailed by the  sum    of '$55.00.     When    the, circumstances   connected  with  this brilliant  economical stroke are  understood, the  general public will fully appreciate the  action   of   the  administration.    Some  months ago Miss Wickham, the principal of the  Greenwood  school, became  ill.    During  her  illness  she  engaged  Mrs. Flood to take charge of the school.  Before  Miss; Wickham   had fully recovered, she was  offered a position in  the Nelson schools, which she accepted.  As soon as  Miss  Wickham's  resignation was received by the trustees, they  made  ever3r  effort  to .secure   another  certificated  teacher, but a  month had  expired before they were able to secure  one.    In the meantime Mrs. Flood consented   to   teach  until   a    certificated  teacher was secured.    She did so. Had  she not done so the  school would have  been   closed. �� The   education  department  refused  to  pay  Mrs. Flood any  salary for the month, raising- the point  that she was not a certificated teacher.  We are not quarreling with the law in  the case.    The law is all  right but the.  justice   is   a   different  matter.    However we tender our  congratulations to  the government for having  found another avenue in which  to continue  its  reign of  economy.    The  public  interests are more important than  those of  the  lady   who   generously   offered  to  take charge of  the  Greenwood school  until   a  certificated  teacher  could   be  secured.     Really   if   the  government  ���continues to show so much enthusiasm  in the interests  of  economy, the province    of   Ontario    will    soon   take   a  secondary place so far as surpluses are  concerned.  TRADE   LICENSES.  While trade licenses are collected, no  exception should be made of bankers  or any other business institutions. A  trade license is an inequitable tax,  practically a fine on an individual  or a company starting business within  the city limits. It is an offense to  start a cigar store and the fine is five  dollars evei*3r six months. It ought to  be considered a more serious offense  to start a bank, and the fine should be  proportionately greater. This system  of taxation is unfair and inequitable.  Rendell  &   Co.,   the  Greenwood   City  Mercantile company or the Russell  Hardware company, whose business  amounts to thousands of dollars each  year, pays only the same amount as  the poor woman who washes for a living or the man who carries two or  three hundred dollars worth of stock  or takes a $100 contract. Trade licenses  should be abolished, but while they  are in force no preference should be  made in favor of the banking business because they are strong financial  institutions. The establishment of\  banks here has done much for Greenwood, but they have no greater right  to escape punishment for their enterprise than; the. washerwoman or the  candy man.   ��� ��� ��� ' ���?:������  i.  -        . ���'.'.. . ���  The Brooklyn.  The best shaft-house in the district  has been erected on the Brooklyn mine  in Greenwood camp. The two large  boilers and hoisting engine have been  installed and'sinking is being carried  on. Mr. Frank Robins, the resident  manager, has gone to Rossland for, a  few days to ^examine some mining  properties. -  University Extension.  A popular and highly successful  form of what is known as university  extension; work is about to be under-  takeni(in this province. This is carried on under the auspices of the University association of New York and  Chicago, and is the outcome of the  University congress; held during the  World's Fair. It has had wonder,ful  success in the-United States, where  over 2,500 reading centers have been  organized. The services of a gentleman well known in this province, Mr.  R. B- Gosnell, late provincial librarian,  have been secured to organize the  reading centers in British Columbia,  and under his direction there is. no  doubt but that the movement; will be  highly successful. Any one desirous  of securing a higher education at  home should communicate with Mr.  Gosnel! and secure full particulars.  Choice cigars in boxes,   suitable  for  Xmas presents, at H. B.

The regular meeting of the city  council was held in the court house on  Monday evening, with the mayor presiding, and Aldermen Paton, Phelan  and Galloway present. Several letters  were read concerning the delay in  shipping the greater portion of the  water pipe. The two cars containing  pipe reached Marcus this week. The  question of securing money to meet  the freight charges was left to the  finance and street committees, who  were to interview the manager of the  Bank of Montreal on Tuesday morning. An application for a telephone  franchise, made by Mcleod & Whiteside, on behalf of Robert H. Palmer,  was to be considered at a special meeting on Tuesday afternopn. The city  collector reported that the Bank of  Commerce and the Batik of Montreal  objected to the payment of city license.  They held that such licenses were not  levied in other cities., The council decided that the licenses should be collected from banks if collected from  other business houses.  Alderman Barrett stated that the  bank managers were corresponding  with their directors with a view to  hastening the construction of the C. P.  R. telegraph, line into the district.  They suggested the advisability of the  council petitioning Mr. C. R. Hosmer,  manager of the C. P; R. telegraph  lines.    The council will do this.  The special meeting called for Tuesday afternoon was not held, a quorum  not being present. .The application  made by Mclveod & Whiteside, on behalf of R. H. Palmer, was to the effect  that in consideration of securing a 50-  year franchise, Mr. Palmer aind his  associates were'prepared to install a  complete telegraph and telephone system. The telephone system is to connect all the camps with Greenwood as  the center. If the necessary franchise  is secured, the company will go to  work at once and have the system established within eight months. 'Mr.  Palmer assured the council on Monday evening that he represented people who were able and willing to construct the system. He asked for a 50-  year franchise, not because he expected it, but: because it was always  well to be on the safe side at the beginning of negotiations. Several of  the. aldermen expressed their opposition .-to a long franchise, and also  wanted to know something about Mr.  Palmer's principals. It would be unwise to give a valuable franchise to  any but a bona fide company. Mr.  Palmer offered to put up security to  carry out any proposition he made to  the council.  McKinney Townsite.

The   hotelkeepers   were    treated   to  -their quarterly lecture at the regular,  sitting of  the licensing  court, held on  Wednesday morning.    Three  commis-  ��� sioners,   Mayor  Wood,   Police  Magistrate Hallett  and   Mr. Geo. R. Naden,  were   present.      The  theme   for   this  quarter's   lecture   was   gambling    in  licensed   houses.    The   commissioners  had  visited  all  the  hotels, and,   with  the exception of the Greenwood house,  liad   found, tables   with  holes  in  the  center.-- -Police  Magistrate Hallett informed   the   hotelkeepers* : who   were  ���present by  request, that the  commissioners did not charge the hotelkeeipers  with   allowing    gambling,    but   they  should avoid   the   appearance  of  evil.  Those tables with holes  in   the  center  were intended  for gambling purposes;  The   commissioners   did    not   license  gambling joints, they  licensed hotels.  As police commissioners they were determined   to   stamp   out   professional  gamblers. They also wanted the ropes  for fire escapes to be  placed  in  every  room,   and  also  to  see   that the outhouses were kept in a better condition.  The  court  would  adjourn until   until  January 9th, when renewals  would be  granted,   conditional   upon   these   instructions being followed.  In dealing with new licenses, the  court announced that Messrs. Bedard  ���& Berger would get a license for the  St. Charles, hotel on the 15th of -January, and a temporary license before  that time if the hotel was finished and  the proprietors desired the temporary  license!  A. Bourke's application for a license  for the Ottawa house was refused, because the notice had not been advertised the necessary number of days  and the papers had not been filed with  the clerk at the proper time. A further objection was voiced by the police  magistrate   when   he  stated  that the  building was not fit for an hotel. The  court was not going to grant an hotel  license for a shack.  Mr. Branson was granted a temporary license for the Commercial hotel,  which he expects to take over in a few  days. The court informed him that he  came to them with good recommendations, and that they expected, him to  make some improvements at the Commercial. This Mr. Branson promised  he would do.  mmmmmmmm^  Greenwood,   B.C. S^:  "A?        "A?        fl?
