Vol, III,  GREENWOOD, B,C��� SATURDAY; DECEMBER 18, 1897,  No, 15,  SANITARY  MATTERS.  HAT there has been more than one case of fever  in the city within the past few months should  8   be a warning- to those upon whom has  been  placed the responsibility of dealing" with  ''matters- which relate to public health.  Greenwood is naturally a healthy place.  There is probably no city in the province  which is more fortunately situated in that respect and the very fact that there are intermittent cases of fevers shows that the rapidly increasing-  population are contaminating- a city that is naturally pure  and healthy. The propag-ation of fever germs is an industry which does not flourish in cities which enjoy natural  advantages and whose sanitary arrangements are all they  oug-ht to be. It is an industry which flourishes amid filth and  public and individual carelessness. We do not wish to criticize any one. We believe that ever}' one has conscientiously discharg-ed any duty which may have devolved upon  him in connection with public matters, and we also believe  that from a health point of view Greenwood leads all the  mining cities in the province. Capt. Clive Phillip Wolley  stated that it was the cleanest mining town in the province and Capt. Wolley is a man who is very nig-g-ardly with  his compliments.  But while we can congratulate ourselves upon all this,  the citizens of Greenwood should not forg-et the future. A  city growing- as rapidry as Greenwood is*, without any sewer ag-e system and whose only water supply are the two  creeks running- throtig-h it. will likely be invaded with innumerable bacteria when the warm sunshine and the chi-  nooks of the spring months melt the snow that now hides  not a little quantity of filth that ought to be peacefully lying- in a plot of ground several miles awa}r from Greenwood  instead of in the back yards within the city. This invasion  is sure to come unless something is done at once. Now is  the time to deal with these matters, not when the city is in  the clutches of an epidemic, when desirable residents are  forced to leave by disease or when intending- settlers refuse  to come because of the reports of the unhealthy condition of  the city.  If an ag-g-ressive campaig-n is at once inaugrated ag-ainst  filth and sanitary indifference, Greenwood can maintain not  only its reputation as a healthy city but also for being- the  'cleanest town in the whole province.  , G  In order that this desirable state of affairs may be brought  about there are several matters which will require immediate attention. The first of these is to discover the Cause f or  the few cases of fever in the city and then put into effect  the remedy. No matter who are inconvenienced, no matter  how great the expense, the authorities should never rest  until the causes for disease are removed.  Several admirable plans for improving the sanitary condition of the city have been sug-gested at meetings of the  city council. One of these should be carried into effect���  the employment of a cityr scavenger whose whole time would  be devoted to the work of removing- refuse and filth.  From the first of the year, the city should also have its  own police and sanitary officer whose entire time should be  g-iven in the .service of the city. He should be a man with  an aversion to filth and with sufficient backbone to insist  on having his instructions promptly carried out.  These observations have been prompted not by any dereliction of duty on the part of any one nor because there are  ���one or two cases of sickness in the city but because all new  cities which have been  negligent   about   sanitary   matters  have been hampered by epidemics and we in common with  all others interested in the future of Greenwood are anxious  that the evils which have fallen to their lot should be avoided here.- .:',"'. "' '  $%  w  ''it*  THE CITY COUNCIL.  Mayor Wood presided at the reg-ular., meeting-,.of-the City'  Council held Monday evening- and Aid. Rendell, Barrett,  Galloway and Phelan were present.  Messrs. Rendell & Co., Russell & Co., and the Greenwood  City Mercantile Co., in a communication to the council,  held that the three mile limit placed by the council, for  powder mag-azines was unnecessary. Thej'- also informed  the council that they had secured a site for a mag-azine on  the East Chance about a 1)4 from Greenwood and J800 feet  above the city. They hoped this site would meet with the  approval of the council. Mr. G. R. Naden the agent for the  Hamilton Powder Company was present to defend the site ���  selected by his company. It is on the Bonnie Bell claim  near Scott McRae's ranch.  After considerable discussion the aldermen canie to the  conclusion that it would not be wise to fix a limit of distance  for the erection of powder magazines as a magazine behind  a mountain would be safer than one three times as far away  in the valley. A motion was consequently passed to the  effect that the former resolution dealing- with powder mag-azines be rescind : l vlL that merchants be informed that  powder mag-azines erected outside the city shall be subject  to the approval of the city council as to construction and  distance and that all powder within the city must be removed by January 1st, 1898. The council also approved of the  ���sites selected by the three local firms and also by the Hamilton Powder Company.  The finance committee reported the following- bills :  Rendell & Co. rent $27 ; A. S. Black solicitor's fee $10 ; city  clerk salary $50 ; Boundary Creek Times printing and advertising- $24.55 ; Smith & McRae seals and stationary $19.-  05; postage, etc. $3. The report was received and the  amounts ordered paid on motion of Aid. Galloway seconded  by Aid. Barrett.  Aid. Barrett moved and Aid. Phalen seconded that Mr.  Jacobs be appointed to audit the municipal accounts. The  motion carried and the council adjourned.  ���*v*  '/If  Jit.  .Sfc  DUAL   TAXATION.  Those interested in municipal g-overnment are curious to  know where the municipal council of the city of Grand  Forks finds authority for collecting taxes from property  owners for the jrear 1897. The council have passed a rate  by-law and made taxes for 1897 payable on the 20th of November, 1897. The provincial government assessed the property in Grand Forks before the city was incorporated. The  property holders paid taxes to Mr. C. A. R. Eambly, the collector and the government have refunded the city a proportionate rebate of the taxes so collected. The Grand Forks  city council surely cannot leg-ally g-ive the ratepayers a  second dose of taxation within the year. It would be equally  consistent to allow municipal councils to tax people a second time if they found enough fhxfney was not raised by the  first taxation to meet expenses.  ���>if  /if  Chas. E. Hope, a well known Vancouver financial man,  paid a flying visit to Greenwood this week. Mr. Hope is  interested in the Victoria, Vancouver & Eastern Railway  Company.    He left on Tuesday for Rossland.  mi.-  a? -  I* -'.  p.fct\. THE   BOUNDARY   CREEK    TIMES,  E.  P  Suydam   Suici&es.  EMwarcl P. Suydarn, who resided in  Greenwood'for-some time and left here  only about two weeks ago, suicided in  Rossland on Friday, Dec. l'Ot'h; The  news reached Greenwood early in the  week and created considerable excitement in the city, as 'Suydam was well  known here.  Mr.Suydam and C. A. Hagelberg  left here for Rossland about Dec. 1st.  His object wras to dispose of some of his  numerous claims in Boundary Creek  district. Disheartened at 'making, no  deal he shot himself at the War Eagle  hotel.  He spent the most of Friday   writing  and at 9:30 in the evening  went  up  to  his room.    A   moment later the report  of a pistol   was   heard.    It  was  found  that  he   had   seated   himself before a  mirror,��placed the   pistol   against   Tiis  right temple   and -fired.    The   bullet  entered the temple and came out in the  , upper part of the forehead.    Two Rossland physicians  were  summoned   and  thejr   at once   pronounced the   wound  fatal.    He was removed to the Sisters'  Hospital where he died at  one  o'clock  Saturday morning-.  The deceased  was 54   years   of age  and  an  American.    He   served   for a  number of years in the navy and afterwards made a fortune in mining operations in Colorado   but   soon  lost it all.  Subsequently he regained his  lost fortune but this also went, and he drifted  to   British   Columbia   some   five years  uago.    He was an enthusiastic   believer  in the mineral resources  of  Boundary  .Creek district and located a number of  properties here.    He leaves a wife and  family at Castle, Montana.  The deceased left a letter in which he  declared that the world wTould be better  without him. He requested that his  brother Master Masons huxy him on  American soil.  The  Summit.  Mr. W. A. Gorbett came  down   from,  the Summit mine in   Summit   camp on  Monday and reported that development  work on the property   had  uncovered a  most   promising-    body   of ��� ore.    This  property   was  located   by  Mr. Corbett  some three years ago and he was satisfied with  doing- the  assessment  work,  but recently he sold a- 'half interest to  Mr. Archie   Connors   and   for the last  few weeks they have, been hard at work  on   the  property.    A   shaft was   sunk  from the top of the   mountain  through  over four feet of hig-h grade copper ore  carrying- high gold   values.    A   tunnel  is   also  being   driven and is now in 30  feet.    It crosscuts eight feet of ore and  both walls have not yet been   reached.  Messrs.   Corbett   and   Connors   intend  working  the   Summit   all  winter and  from all indications the}-   have a property that will rank with the other mines  which have made   Summit  camp famous.  The Summit is near the Oro Dinero  and the Emma, owned by Messrs. Farrell and Midgeon. It is also about \XA  miles from the B. C.  GRAND   SCENERY. .LOW   RATES.  MODEL   ACCOMMODATIONS.

It is to be. regretted that the editor of  the Grand Forks Miner has fallen from  the high journalistic plane from which  he discussed public questions since his  paper secured a patent outside and that  he has gone back to that old style that  disgraced the pages of a Canadian  newspaper. We extend our sympath}'  to the editor of the Miner. We exceedingly regret that Thb; Boundary  >Creek Times tempted a man who was  endeavoring to trample under foot  journalistic depravities, but we trust  that he will not give up in despair and  that he will yet be able to edit a  newspaper' in a manner that will not  bring into dispute the city in which he  resides.  The editor of the Boundary Creek  Times does not object to being called  idiotic by the Miner ; in fact under the  circumstances it is a compliment, since  all the people of Greenwood, all the  people of Boundary Creek district and  not a few of the good people of Grand  Forks must be included in the same  category. The Miner does not defend  the imaginary boundary line between  Grand Forks and the Kettle River mining divisions but calls those who criticize idiotic, and indulges in other forms  of billingsgate. The mine'owners and  prospectors will probably remember  that some months ago a petition was  circulated asking the Minister of Mines  to make Fourth of July creek the boundary between the two divisions. The  petition was numerously signed. It  received . signatures even in Grand  Forks. According to the Miner every  one who signed that petition is an idiot!  The citizens of Greenwood, the hardy  prospectors and the enterprising mine  owners in the surrounding camps have  all been classed as idiots by the Grand  Forks Miner.  We would respectfully suggest to the  Miner that its articles would carry  greater weight and be more effective  in advancing the welfare of the district  if they contained less coarse personal  vituperation and more intelligent arguments. The Miner might inform the  public if it considers proper a boundary  between mining subdivisions which no  one can discover, which has already  provoked one or two lawsuits and  which gives mine owners endless difficulty ? Does it not think that that  boundary should be clearly defined, or  another substituted ?  NOTICE  NOTICE is hereby' g-iven that an application will be made to the Parliament of  Canada at the next session thereof for an Act  to incorporate a Company to construct and  maintain a railway from a point on the Interna-ional Boundary Line at or near Cascade  City, British Columbia, thence in a westerlv  direction, following- the valuv <f the Ke'tle  river, to a point on the said ll<> ti  or near Carson ; also from a.n-:������-. ii-  said Boundary Line ai or ue;i.'-  northerly, following the val o  creek to a point about tweu  Midwaj'; wuh power to con  tain branch lines, and at the  Line to connect with and t > <>������ i  in  conjunction  with  the  rai  :trv   Line  a-.  ��� point on the  : :-.l��vav, thence  ���f Bouudarv  i!cs  north  of  ._���'.   and   maiu-  ��� id   Bouudarv  ��� e the whole  av   line of  the  Spokane Falls & Northern R li ��� ay Company,  with power to the compau y u> ;;>i struct, operate aud maintain telegraph a id elephoue lines  as well for commercial pi rpo;-e ��� as the business  of the railway; and for all o her ;!ecessary aud  usual powers.

The largest sale of Boundary Creek  property yet reported was closed in  Spokane last week, when Messrs. Farrell & Midgeon's extensive and valuable mining interests in this district  passed under the control of Messrs.  McKenzie & Mann, the well-known  capitalists and railway men. Mr. W.  T. Smith, Farrell & Midgeon's representative arid who owns a quarter interest in all the property held by them,  returned from Spokane yesterda}' and  confirmed the rumors that were circulated regarding the purchase.  The deal was negotiated by Mr. J. E.  Boss of Spokane and Mr. Smith. The  properties include the well known  Stemwinder and Standard claims in  Smith's camp; the Emma, Minnie  Moore, Mattie Davis, Jumbo and Mountain Rose in Summit camp, the Golden  Rod in Central camp; the Enterprise,  hi Copper and the PhOenix and Montezuma.  The price paid is upwards of $100,000  and 25 per cent, has been paid in cash.  Mr. J. E. Boss and Mr. Clark of New  York, Messrs. Farrell & Midgeon's attorney, reached Midway' on Thursday  evening to make final arrangements  and also to negotiate for the purchase  of Mr. McMynn's interest in the Jumbo. .Mr. .Smith still retains hisj quarter interest but -it is probable that he  will also sell.  The Mail Service.  The-citizens of Greenwood were  forced to go without mail pn Thursday,  the   Grand  Forks postmaster   having  ^ ��� c - ��� ' ���     ,  refused to deliver the mail to the stage  driver. The postmaster at Grand  Forks may have strong personal reasons for his action but surely the residents of Greenwood can justly demand  of the post office department to make  st\ch arrangements as will insure the  prompt and regular delivery of the  mail in this city. In a district where  mining deals are being negotiated and  where mine owners and business men  have important business relations with  the outside world, it is of the utmost  importance that the mail service should  not be made subservient to the grievances or the eccentricities of any official.  The Winnipeg.  Mr. W. F. Honey of the Winnipeg  Company visited Greenwood this week.  He reports that the work of opening-  up the mine is progressing rapidhr.  The machiiien- purchased from the  Jenckes Machine Company is. working  admirably. The new shaft is down 45  feet and crosscutting will begin at the  100-foot level. Mr. Hone}' who is a  North Dakota capitalist is extremely  well pleased with the Winnipeg. He  also has the greatest confidence in the  fut.ire of-the district.  Licensing Court.  The adjourned sitting of the Board  of License Commissioners will be held  in Rendell & Co's. hall at 10 o'clock on  Monday. Mr. I. H. Hallett having accepted the position of police mag-istrate  will be one of the commissioners. Five  hotels have petitioned for licenses and  there are two others desirous of securing licenses. Messrs. Tormey and  Moran for the Greenwood hotel and  Mr. Nels Leplante for the building  which he is erecting on Copper street,  opposite the Hamill block. When these  two hotels are opened, Greenwood  will have seven hotels.  A Wretched Mail Service.  In another column is an article drawing attention to the fact that the postmaster at Grand Forks refused to send  mail by Thursday's stage. On Friday  he also refused to deliver mail, much  to the inconvenience of the residents  of Greenwood. This matter will require further attention.  There is still a more serious charge  against the mail service. Mr. Smailes  on Saturday sent a telegram to Dr.  Thornber informing him of his daughter's serious illness and on Tuesday following two other telegrams were sent  containing the news of Miss Thorn-  ber's death. The telegrams sent on  Tuesday reached the Marcus office and  were despatched by the operator before  the one sent on Saturday arrived there.  The result was that the bereaved parents at New Westminster received no  intimation of their daughter's illness  and were not prepared for the news of  her death. Lack of space is our only  excuse for not denouncing such irregularity in the mail service.  Going to England.  Mr. Eon is Hind, J. P., of Anaconda,  will leave for England next week and  expects to be away about three months.  Mr. Hind's trip is partly for business  and partly for pleasure. He expects to  close an important deal in New York  and also make sales in London. He  will then visit his home in Goole, Yorkshire.  Licensing Gourt.  The regular sitting of the Licensing  Court for the rural district was held  at Midwa}7 on Friday last when several  applications for new licenses were considered. The court granted all the  licenses applied for excepting one for  the Canada hotel, Upper Grand Forks.

Another mine will be  operated by a  powerful steam plant.    Mr. J.   P. Harvey, Mr. Patsy Clark's   representative,  has purchased from F. R. Mendenhall,  g-eneral ag-ent for the Jenckes Machine  Company, a complete mining- plant for  the Snowshoe.    The plant will be shipped from Rossland, and as,soon as installed the work  on the mine  will  be  prosecuted more vigorously than  ever.,  The   Snowshoe  makes  the sixth property in the district which has  acquired  a steam   plant, five   of   which   are   in'  Greenwood     and   Wellington   camps.  Other mine owners are negotiating- for  the   purchase  of   machinery   and   bjr  spring   there will be  a perfect din of  whistles in the vicinity   of Greenwood.  Freight is Moving.  Dr. Nelson, veterinary surgeon for  the state of Washington, has visited  Grand Forks. He made minute inquiries into the causes which led up to the  establishment of a quarantine by Dr.  Hickingbottom, and as a result he advised the Canadian official to remove  the quarantine. This Dr. Hicking-bot-  tom has refused to do. Dr. Nelson  under the circumstances withdrew from  Grand Forks and has examined the  freighters* horses at Marcus; All of  Mitchell's horses secured certificates of  health and they were; allowed to pass  Grand Forks with freig-ht for Greenwood. Other teams also secured certificates of health and will be allowed  to pass.      ������'--.���          The   Rossland-Boundary Road.  The Rossland Board of Trade have  decided to ask the provincial government to build the w.agon road between  Rossland and Boundary Creek. The  Times is opposed to the larg-e expenditure of public mone3r on this undertaking-. The peopl e of this district do not  want wagon roads outside of those necessary to connect the camps with  Greenwood where the supplies are purchased. These roads have been built  by private enterprise and not by the  government. The only proper means  of communication with the outside  world is by a railway and the provincial government instead of frittering  away nioney on useless wagon roads  should expend it in assisting the early  construction of a railway into this district.  __   Paid for His Fun.  A well known local miner started in  to paint red Midway and Boundary  Creek valley last week with the result  that he appeared before magistrates  Norris and Hind at Midway on Wednesday. He pleaded g-uilty to the  charges, and between fines, costs and  damages he was mulcted in the sum  of about $75 to pa)- for his da}r's sport.  Two hotel keepers were also summoned for g-iving- liquor to an intoxicated man and one was fined $20 while  the charge against the other was dismissed. The fined hotel keeper has  appealed from the decision of the local  magistrates.

The members of Boundary Valley  Lyddg-e, I. O. O. F., entertained their  friends in Rendell & Go's, hall on Tuesday evening last. The hall was comfortably filled by an audience who appreciated the meritorious programme  provided by the  committee  in charge.  The entertainment was opened by  Porter's Orchestra whose music appears to improve every time they play  in public. Mr. J. P. Harlan followed  with an excellently rendered song " Behind the Times." Miss Dollie Fisher  recited a thrilling description of a rescue of a railway train and having good  elocutionary talent was loudly encored.  For the second time this winter, a  Oreenwodd audience fairly shrieked  ���with laughter when Miss Ruth Miller  a tiny tot of four years showed them  what an " Alabama Coon " is and what  he can do. For an encore she sang  another character song that convulsed  the house and later in the evening was  heard in a humorous recitation. Jack  Galloway, who is one of Greenwood's  rising elocutionists, secured fresh  laurels by his rendition of Barbara  Fritchie. Mrs. C. M. Shaw was heard  for a first time by a Greenwood audience and every one who listened to her  sweet, well-trained voice hopes that  her public appearances will be frequent. Her first selection " Old Madrid " was excellently sung but there  are some songs that suffer from a violin accompaniment and "In Old Madrid " is one of them. In " True to  Death " Mrs. Shaw was heard to better  advantage, Miss Roy accompanying  her on the organ.  The second part of the programme  opened with selection by the orchestra  and then Miss Julia Fisher sang  "Bunch of Daises." Miss Fisher's  singing was enthusiastically encored  and in response she and her sister sang  a pleasing duet. Miss M. E. Medill  recited Davenport's thrilling description of the " Charge at Dargai Ridge."  Then came a pleasing surprise. Mr.  W. B. Rickards of Midway consented  to take part in the pre gramme and his  humorous recitation was so greatly appreciated that he had to respond. In  " the address to the gladiators," Mr!  Rickards had ample scope for his high  elocutionary talents and the firey  words of the noble Spartan brought  outbursts of applause, from the audience. Mr. Geo. A. Guess treated the  audience to something new and .tin usual at an entertainment. He gave a  series of odd chemical experiments.  Chemicals are very much like the average boy���when visitors are present he  does all those things he had ought not  to do. Chemicals that did their work  well in the laboratory refused to do any  thing in the hall and. consequently  some of Mr. Guess' best experiments  were spoiled. Sufficient were successful however, to demonstrate the peculiarities of chemical combinations.  Another treat of the evening, was the  singing of Master Charles Galloway.  His voice is a clear distinct soprano.  He accompanied himself on the violin  and assisted by his father, C. Scott  Galloway, " Ye Banks and Braes " enforced the plaudit of others besides  Scotsmen.    For    an    encore,    Master  ?��  Galloway  gave " Home Sweet Home.  "God Save the Queen " brought a successful entertainment to a close.  During the evening Miss Roy acted  as accompanist and thereby materially assisted the singers in entertaining  the audience.

Bodwell,    Irving   &   Duff,  solicitors    for   the   Spokane   Falls   &  Northern     Railway    Company,   have  given   notice   that  an   application will  be made at the next session of the Dominion   parliament   to   incorporate  a  company to construct and   maintain   a  railway    from   a   point   near Cascade  City along the  Kettle river to  Carson  and  then   front   a point on   the Kettle  river at'Midway for 20 miles up Boun-  dar3r creek with power to construct and  maintain  branch  lines,   the whole  to  be   operated   in   connection with   the  railway  line  of  the  Spokane Falls &  Northern     Railway     Company.    The  '���company will also'"-ask- for the power to  construct, operate  and   maintain telegraph and telephone lines.  As Corbin's   engineers have already  made a preliminarj'survey of a portion  of the route, it maj'-.be taken for granted that the  intention   is to  construct a  railway   from   the   Spokane   Falls  &  Northern Railway to Cascade City and  then follow the Kettle river to Midway,  recrossing the International boundary  line   at   Carson.    From   Midway   the  railwa3r    will     be   constructed   along  Boundary Creek  to   Greenwood.    Mr.  Corbin, the president of the  company,  has been in Victoria   for  several   days  and it is currently reported that he intends asking both governments for assistance to enable him to build the rail-  '���'   way. '''.'.-''���  The people  of .Boundary  Creek district will hail   the  announcement with,  considerable    satisfaction.    From    all  appearances the C. P.   R.  will extend  ���its.-system from Penticton to Boundary  Creek and  a  competing- railway from  the south will give the district  the advantage   of   having-   two     competing  lines.    If Mr. Corbin asks both parliaments   for a  subsidy  we  see no good  reason why he should  not  be  entitled  to   reasonable   consideration.   Parliaments   should however deal   with him  as with   all   railway   companies   and  'make any assistance conditional upon  immediate    construction    and   speedy  completion 'of   the   line.    The     great  weakness of the   system'   of  e-rantincr  aids to railways-in the past lay  in  the  fact  that railway  promoters were not  bound down to promptly..beginning  to  earn   that    assistance.    The   province  was pledged to give assistance  but   in  the meantime,   promoters   went,   beg-  .g'ing from government to   government  and nothing was done.  We cannot agree with   the   Rossland   I  Miner in its contention that assistance  should   be  denied'   Mr.   Corbin.-if   his  intention is to. haul    ores   out   of   the  country.    Mr. Corbin fully appreciates  the   fact that the   majority   of   Boundary   Creek ores   must   be   smelted at  home   but   there   are   many   that   can  stand shipment.    Mine owners care little whether they are treated in Canada  or United States.    There   is  no sentiment in business and the3r do not wish  to be restricted from having their ores  treated where it is most  advantageous  to do so.

The provincial court house, built by  the government in Greenwood was  practically opened on Thursday last  when His Honor, Police Magistrate  Hallett presided at the first case which  came before him as magistrate for the  city. Not a few .spectators were present.  The  court   room   will   never   suffer  from disadvantages of bad ventilation  unless the- walls are papered and rus-  ticed. At present the cold, bracing  air of winter comes in freely through  the cracks in the wall. Many a time  have magistrates in coast cities prayed for such a court room when they-  were forced to inhale air that was contaminated by hordes of dirty Chinaman and still dirtier Siwashes.  The case to which the attention of  the court was directed was one in  which provincial police officer McMynn  was the prosecutor, and the proprietor  of the Commercial hotel the defendant. It was a case similar to the one  to which reference is made in another  column, the defendant being charged with allowing liquor to be sold to an  intoxicated person. A plea of guilty  was entered and a fine of $20, the lightest for the offense was imposed.  Police Magistrate Hallett stated that  he wished it understood that it was not  a difficult matter for him to impose a  fine���in fact it was a pleasure to fine  those who violated the law. He directed the local officer to see that in the  future no questionable characters were  allowed to  visit the hotels in the city.  A  Drunken  Row,  Another serious stabbing case came  up before the magistrates at Midway  on Wednesday last. During a bar  room brawl at Camp McKinney Alex  Ramage received some knife wounds  in the head and neck. George Turner  who used the knife succeeded in  cross  ing the International line before he  could be arrested. Mike Dooley was  arrested however, for hitting Ramage  on the head. He put up $120 in gold  dust to appear for trial but Dooley was  evidently afraid of British law and  allowed $120 to be estreated when his  fine would probably have not been  more than $25.

I  On Saturday- morning  several   business houses   in Greenwood   were  f usi-  'laded with rock, earth and   flying timbers.    Those excavating the cellar for  the   Barrett   block,   used   too heavy a  charge   with   the   result   that several  windows across the street were broken.  The Greenwood   City  Mercantile Co's.  store   front  suffered  worse   about $50  worth of glass  being   broken.    Miller  Bro's.,   the    Cosmopolitan   restaurant  and the Imperial   hotel  also  had windows broken.
