GREENWOOD, B.C., SATURDAY, FEBRUARY 19,  1898,  76  No, 24,  OOUNOIL  MEETING.  HE} council met Monday evening* at 8 o'clock, present; Mayor Wood and Aid. Parry, Galloway,  Barrett, Kerr, Paton and Phelan. Minutes of  previous meeting of council were read and on  motion adopted. Communication received and  filed notifying the council that City Treasurer  Naden had taken oath of office.  Aid. Barrett asked leave to introduce by-laws for the purpose of raising money .for waterworks and street improvements. In answer to question the city solicitor explained  that two by-laws were necessary���one for street improvements and the other for waterworks���each to specify the  amount to be expended., Considerable discussion here ensued as to the amount of money that would be required for  waterworks improvements. Aid. Phelan did not think the  members , of council had sufficient data before them and  would require time to make an estimate of amount of money  required for each by-law. Aid. Galloway informed council  that he had received estimates of cost of pipe from several  Spokane firms. He thought the most expensive would be  the best and considered $10,000 would be the outside cost of  the waterworks system.  Moved by Aid. Barrett, seconded by Aid. Phelan, that a  by-law to provide money for the building-of a waterworks  system be read a first time. Carried. On motion of Aid.  Barrett, seconded by Aid. Kerr, the waterworks by-law was  read a second time. Moved by Aid. Barrett, seconded by  Aid. Phelan, that by-law to provide money for street improvements be read a first time. Carried. Aid. Barrett,  seconded by Aid. Galloway, that street improvement by-law  be read a second time.    Carried.  It was suggested that as the Mayor was going to Vernon,  he would get all the information he could as to the floating  of debentures, and that a special meeting of the council be  held previous to the de��)arture of the mayor. Aid. Galloway  thought it would be advisable to take up the waterworks  by-law clause by clause, leaving blanks to be filled in at  final reading-. In this manner the by-law could be so forwarded that the final reading would simply be a matter of  form. Aid. Phelan did not see the necessity of discussion  until council could deal with the matter intelligently, and  this could only be done after an estimate of the probable  cost of system had been furnished members. The clerk  then read the waterworks by-law. ,  Moved by Aid. Phelan, seconded by Aid. Parry, that a  special meeting- of council be held on Wednesday next at 2  o'clock, and that Mr. Shaw be asked to make an estimate of  probable cost of waterworks, and be present at council.  Carried. It was also sugg-ested that *Mr. Gallowa}'- bring  correspondence he had received in regard to pipe to special  meeting-. Aid. Barrett suggested that; a city engineer be  appointed and street levels be attended to at as early a date  as possible.  Moved by Aid. Galloway, seconded by Aid. Barrett, that  clerk be instructed to write to D. Ross to get all information  he could in regard to floating- of city loan.    Carried.  The -temporary loan note was then taken up and Ma3ror  and finance committee instructed to attend to the matter.  It wassug-gested by Aid. Phelan that city police make a  monthly report to council, of arrests, convictions, crimes for  which arrests were made, fines, bonds forfeited, etc., in the  city.    On motion council adjourned.  A special meeting-  of   the  council was held in Rendell &  Co's, hall on Wednesda3'- afternoon at 2 o'clock, for the pur  pose of considering by-laws for raising- money for waterworks and street improvement purposes. There were present, the Mayor and Aldermen Barrett, Galloway, Kerr,  Phelan, Parry and Paton. Letters were read fromrcity  clerks of Rossland and of Nelson regarding- disposal of debentures. A communication was read from C. -3D. Shaw,  C.JE)., giving a rough estimate of cost of watermains and  excavating for the waterworks system which amounted in  all to $6,843. The estimates were based on fig-ures quoted  for most expensive pipe. Aid. Galloway stating- that he  thought the same quality of pipe could be procured at a  much lower price. After considerable discussion it was decided to borrow $11,000 for waterworks and $14,000 for street  ���improvements, a total of $25,000 at a rate of 6 per cent, per  annum.  On motion of Aid. Barrett and Aid. Phelan, the clerk was  instructed to write Mr. Shaw, asking- him to meet the council at the next regular meeting and consult with them as to  accepting- the position of city engineer. " ; '  Mayor Wood asked for leave of absence for one month.  Moved by Aid. Galloway, seconded by Aid. Paton, that the  Mayor be granted leave of absence for one month, and that  Aid. Barrett be appointed acting- mayor. Carried. Council then adjourned.  �����ft-  0&  THE   LAST   OHANCE   MINE.  We make the following extracts from a  very  interesting  article contributed by Mr. B. Jacobs, of Greenwood,   to  the  News-Advertiser and the Advance:  The Last Chance, in Skylark camp, is one of a number of  mineral claims lying close to Greenwood that were located  in 1893 at a time when Messrs. Atwood and Wake, two pioneer prospectors still resident in the district, wereactiveW  eng-ag-ed in prospecting in the vicinity of what is now called  Twin creek. The mine is now the property of the Boundary  Creek Mining Co., a Spokane organization, of which Mr.  Louis I. Ostroski, merchant, Greenwood, is the resident attorney. Its mining operations are carried on under the direction of Mr. MqGrath, a practical miner who has had  many years' experience in both placer and lode mining-.  The class of work being done in the main shaft of the  Last Chance calls for commendation, for althougii there are  several other shafts in the district sunk and timbered in a  thoroughly workmanlike manner, they are not the rule.  This shaft is vertical, 4x8J^ in the clear and divided into  two 4-foot compartments. It is timbered all the wa}' down,  substantially and well, and is certainly work that those who  have executed .may well take pride in. B}'-and-b3''e, when  the mining-industry shall have become well established in  the Boundary Creek district, and all such work be subject  to government official inspection, good timbering will be  taken as a matter of course ; but at this go-as-you-please  stag-e in the history of���as regards development���this comparatively new mining- district, it appears desirable to acknowledge such advances in the rig-ht direction as are  being" made.  The Last Chance is well supplied with excellent mining-  timber and fuel, there being-an abundance growing- on the  claim. It has plenty of water for ordinary purposes other  than for power, and will also be advantageous^ situated in  reg-ards to transportation, for the lineof railway', when constructed, must pass within about a mile. The "level of the  valley along- which the line willrun is about 1,000 feet lower  than the mine, so that this down grade will afford exceptional facilities for the economical conveyance of ore to the  shipping point. Should the work of building- a railway into the district be soon actively undertaken, it is veiw probable the Boundary Creek Mining Companj' will in the coming- summer equip the Last Chance with a steam plant, so  that its development may be more expeditiously proceeded  with than is reasonably practicable under existing conditions. At present there are ten men on the pay-roll, but it  is hoped that this number will ere long- have to be increased-and the work of development be pushed at a rate more in  keeping- with the excellent prospects this very promising-  property has.

THE   BOUNDARY   CREEK   TIMES,  PRESS   OPINIONS.  s   fa  It  " As we anticipated last week the  city council has wisely decided to abolish the obnoxious trade licenses which  ������'were the cause of so much dissatisfaction last year. A good deal of hard  feeling and bitter complaint will thus  be smothered and we imagine that the  city will not very much miss the extra  revenue derived from this source. Any  tax upon a man's enterprise or business activity is sure to call forth a protest, and the council made a good move  when they amended the by-law which  for so long lias been a subject of vexatious disputation."���Vernon News.    ���'.,  ": ���    'Mt can scarcely be thought that the  Canadian   government   will   have the  hardihood to refuse a  charter for  Mr.  Corbin's proposed line into the Boundary Creek country of  southern British  Columbia.    Mr. Corbin   asks   nothing  in the   way   of   subsidy.    He requires  neither   land  nor money.    He  simply  asks to be allowed   to   build   his  road  and     develop     Canadian     resources.  ���This   application  would  not be  questioned were it not for the strong*   influence of the   Canadian   Pacific   in   the  affairs of the Dominion.    The  Canadian Pacific wants a monopoly  of British Columbia traffic.    It wants to take  its time to build branch  lines  into the  different sections.    Meanwhile, it wrould  be   quite content to have   the   country  bottled up.    This side of the  line that  proposition would  excite a  whirlwind  of public indignation.    If the Can adian  Pacific should undertake  the construction of a line into eastern Washington,  without aid or subsidy, and the American lines resisted, and  tried  to retard  ethe growth of a section until they  could be coaxed to build with land  grants and subsidy, they would bring  a hornet's swarm about their, ears. ',  And the politician who answered the  beck of the obstructing lines would become odious."���Spokesman-Review.  "Will Receive Due Consideration."

Corbin's application   for   a charter   to   build   into  this district :  Office, of the Minister of Railyvays '  and Canals, Ottawa. )  February 2nd, 1898.

The Grand Forks Miner is authority  for the statement that there will probably be ������" another municipal election  in that town in the future." No doubt  of it, if all the inhabitants do not emigrate before the end of the year. With  two electors Grand Forks can put up a  very creditable mtmicipal campaign.  The agreement between the Dominion g-overnment and Mackenzie & Mann  for building- one hundred and forty  miles of railway in the northern g"old  region is the absorbing- topic in political circles. It all depends 011 which  side of politics one is, whether the proposed charter is a steal or a great public g-ood. On whichever side of politics  the reader may be, he must admit that  the Liberals are doing wonders for the  short time they have been in power,  and are showing- themselves to be  worthy successors of the Tuppers .so  far as the building- up of monopolies is  concerned.  A question came up in the city  council on Monday night which shows  a peculiarity in the Municipal Act.  Aid. Phelan offered a motion to the  chair to the effect that police officers  should make a monthly report to the  council of arrests, convictions, etc.,  and was informed by the city solicitor  that the city council had no authority  to make such an order, as the commissioners had full control  of  the  police  department and the council could only  sug-g-est that such report should be  made. In other words, the city council, elected by the people, are subordinate to a board of commissioners, appointed by the provincial government,  and whose salaries are paid out of the  municipal treasury. It is certainly a  very queer state of affairs, when the  representatives of the people are compelled to pay the salaries of officials  over whom they have no control and in  whose appointment they have no say.  An evil which should be remedied at  the present session of the provincial  leg-islature is the abandonment and relocation of claims. As the law is at  present, a claim cair.be held by parties  for years without dotn'g' assessment  work, and a large number of properties are so held in this district. If the  abandonment clause in the act were  done awaA' with, persons holding-  claims for speculative purposes would  either have to do the assessment work  or allow others equal chances in relocating when the ground became vacant. A considerable percentage of  claims in this district are held from  year to year without any work being  done on them, and no expenditure of  money except the cost of abandonment  and recording-.  A SITTING  will be h  of the County  Court of Yale  holden at  Grand Forks on Monday, the 14th  ��� day of March, 1898,  At the hour of 11 o'clock iu the forenoon.  S. R.

The people of the city were startled  Thursday morning- when it became  known that William James, better  known as "Billy the Barber," had  committed suicide.  Deceased  went  to  his  room,   at the  .residence of Georg-e McKag-ue, Greenwood street, about 12 o'clock Wednesday night and went to bed. During-  the night Mr. McKag-ue heard him g-et  up and go into the kitchen, but as this  was not an unusual occurrence, he paid  no attention to it.  After lig-hting the fire in the kitchen  stove Thursday morning Mr. McKag-ue  found the following note on the table,  addressed to W. Nelson, of the Pioneer  hotel, and dated Feb. 16:    '.'  " This is my last say. All that belongs to me at Greenwood at present  time belongs to you. I am tired of this  way of living. Do as you please with  me, for there is no one cares, so good  -bye."  In another note,   after  enumerating-  his belongings  in the  barber shop, he  ended up by saying-:  "I don't think I want to stay here  any longer, I have no one in the world  that cares for me, nor I for them, so  don't waste any stamps in writing1."  Dr.   Foster   of the   hospital   was at  once notified, but when he  arrived deceased   must have  been  dead  several  ; hours.'.; "... ' ;.' ::~ "������  On Wednesday deceased bought and  sig-ned for morphine at the Greenwood  drugstore, claiming he wanted the,  drug- for a hair mixture. The vial of  morphine sulphate was found in his  room with the label scraped off and  about half of the contents gone.  Coroner Jakes, who had been"absent  at Rock Creek, arrived Thursday evening- and  decided  that a  post 'mortem  examination   and     inquest    was    iin-:  necessar)r.  Deceased was born in Greenfield, 111.,  and was 43 years of ag-e. The greater  part of his life was spent in Missouri  and Nebraska, where he was twice  married and has a son and daughter  living. He has been a resident of  Greenwood City for about two years,  carrying on the business of a barber.  He had been ailing for years, at times  suffering great pain, and had frequently said he would end his troubles  by suicide. He had been in the habit  of taking- morphine to relieve pain and  produce sleep.  The funeral took place at 1:30 Friday  and was conducted by members of Court  Boundary, No. 3576, I. O. F.  Died  in  the  Hospital.  On Wednesday evening George Edwards, aged 55, a native of West Cornwall, England, died iu the Greenwood  hospital of heart failure. The deceased had only been in the district about  three months, coming from Fairview  here last fall.    He   had  worked  in the  Jewel in Long- Lake camp for about a  month,, and last week was taken ill,  and brought down to the hospital.  His only relative in this country was a  son, who was with him when he died/  Deceased leaves a wife and two children in "England to mourn his departure.'    -;���     :��� -:.

The vein is a large one  ���somewhere in the neighborhood of 12  feet���and is arsenical iron; assay  values average $20 in gold to the ton.  The claim is under bond from the owners, the Mack brothers, to Fred Oliver  of Spokane for $15,000. At present three  men are at work developing- the claim.  The Athelstan lies near the Winnipeg  mine, the Calumet lying- between the  Winnipeg-and the Athelstan. It also  lies near the Hecla, another well known  claim in the camp. There is ver}r little doubt but that the bond will be  taken up on this claim.  Boundary' Creek citizens have done  what seems like a most sensible and  business-like thing in sending a special  representative to Ottawa and another  to Victoria to watch the progress of the  railway bills. This proves the earnestness and the anxiety of the people of  Boundary Creek district in this important   matter.

SATURDAY,  FEBRUARY 19, 1898.  BOUNDARY   CREEK M. & C.  ASSOCIATION.  The Boundary Creek Mining & Commercial Association met in Rendell &  Co's. hall Wednesday evening-, President Hardy in the chair.  '",.  Minutes of previous meeting were  read, amended and adopted.  The hospital committee reported as  follows : ���'���  Your committee appointed to consider the question of securing a governs  ment appropriation for the Greenwood  hospital, beg-to report that the secretary be instructed to forward a copy of  the following letter to Donald Graham  M.P.P., and the Hon. J. H.Turner.  A. S. Black,  R. Woods,  D. Ross.  'M am directed by the Boundary  Creek Mining- & Commercial Association to draw your attention to the fact  that the Greenwood hospital has heretofore not received any assistance from  the 'provincial g-overnment, and that  in the opinion of the association it is  an institution which deserves the same  kind consideration as the other hospitals in the province.  " The Greenwood hospital has done  much g-ood in the district. For excellent medical attendance, for careful  nursing, cleanliness and good sanitary  arrangements, it is favorabfy known  beyond the limits of Boundary Creek  district. Dr. Jakes, the hospital physician, has never refused to care for the  sick, be* they rich or poor, and the association begs to point out the injustice of saddling the care of the indg-ent  sick upon an. individual. When any  person living on Boundary Creek, Midway, Camp McKinney or points beyond, becomes ill, and he is unable to  procure the necessar}' medical attendance and nursing at his home, he is  straightway taken to the hospital. Iu  the majority of cases he is without the  necessary means to pay for his maintenance. The association hold that  this class'is properly a charg-e upon the  state, and provisions should be made  in the estimates to reinburse the hospital for the care of the indigent  sick.  *' The hospital receives patients from  the district between Christina lake and  Keremeos, aud from the international  boundary line to Penticton. The government   should   not   allow   those who  have the inconvenient habit of g-etting  sick or injured, when they have not the  necessary money to pay for attendance, to become a charge upon the  Greenwood hospital.  ;' There is.another matter in connection with the hospital that requires the  consideration of the government: To  the south of the internatial boundary  line is a mining- district where they*  appear to have much bad whisky and  no officers to maintain the peace.  Shooting-scrapes are not uncommon,  and 'the; wounded' are taken directiy to  the Greenwood hospital. This class of  patients are always without meads,  and they gain admission to the hospital because the common instincts of.  humanity forbid that they be left to  to die at the hospital doors. Unless the  g-overnment is prepared to make arrangements for their maintenaiice during their residence on this side of the  line, the association would recommend  that the provincial officers be instructed to refuse their admission into the  province, unless a satisfactory guarantee,is given that the necessary money  for their hospital arid medical attendance will be provided.  "The association beg to point out  that last year the Jubilee hospital of  Victoria received $10,000 ; New Westr  minster hospital, $4,000 : Nanamio hospital, $4,500; Nelson hospital, $3,000;  Vernon hospital, $1,000 ; while the  Greenwood hospital received nothing.  '" The association also draws attention to the fact that the Sisters' hospital  at Rossland was promised aid by the  premier, and that the Greenwood hospital is entitled to similar consideration."  On motion the report was accepted,  the committee thanked and discharged.  Mr. W. T. Smith had not fully completed his report in regard to the boundaries of mining- divisions. He gave  an outline of report and promised to  g-ive the association conclusions of  committee in writing at next meeting.  Mr. W. Nelson, for, railway fund  committee, reported having- collected  $583.50. ; There was still outstanding-  $57.50, of which $50 would be at disposal os committee. *  The Railway Fund committee, on  motion received the thanks of the association.  Mr. J. P.   Harlan was  unanimously  elected to'fill the position of  secretary  made vacant, by the resignation of Mr.  Jabobs.  By request  of   the  president   Mayor  Woods  g-ave  his views on the railway  question.    He was strongly in favor of  the   Robson-Penticton  road,   provided  construction was commenced at Penticton at the same time as at Robson,  as it was in the interests of the whole  district that railway communication  should be had between Penticton and  Boundary Creek at as early a date as  possible. If the road were constructed  from Robson alone, it would be a  couple of years before Boundary Creek  would have ' railway ' communication,  by the C. P. R. If the road were built  from Penticton as well as Robson,  trains would probably be running- before the end of the year. He was in  favor of a charter to the Corbin road.  He believed the provincial government  would bind the C. P. R. to 'commence  work at Penticton. He intended to  ;overnmerit in respect of  ross the West Fork  of Kettle  press   the  bridge  river.  Mr. W. Neh  ,011  being- built, even  was  iu favor of" road  if   both ��� land   grant  and money bonus had to be given.  What the district needed was railway  communication this year and the bonus,  question was a matter of very little  moment.  Moved by Mr. McFarland, seconded  by Mr. McLvean, that Mayor Wood be  appointed a delegate from this association to look after the railway interests  of the district at Victoria and report  from time to time to the association.  Carried. ���  Mr. W.T. Smith offered;the suggestion that the president call a public  meeting of citizens should , any thing-  come up that would require an expression of opinion from the people of the  district.    The meeting- then adjourned?.;  /,  H.   HALL.ETT,  f. ,* /  QB>4rrt0ferr JJoftcifor,  NOTARY    PUBLIC.  greenwood; q.o.  EJTORBES   M,   KERBY,  Assoc. Mem. Can. Soc. Civil Engineers.,.

J%\:      ��  THE   BOUNDARY   CREEK   TIMES,  GREENWOOD AND  DISTRICT.  Joe Kelly left this week to work on  the Enterprise in Long-lake camp.  R. Buchter, of Kaslo, is in the city  looking- for an opening- in the bakery  business.  A. B. Pater son, who has been work-'  ing- in the Cariboo, Camp McKinney,  for some time past, is in the city.  The Greenwood Dramatic club held, a  very successful rehearsal of " Turn  Him Out "on Wednesday evening.  G. L. Phillips, a prominent mine  dealer of Rossland, is in the district  looking- over claims with a view of investing-.  W. G. McMynn, chief of the provin-  .cial" police in this district, was in town  Thursday and Friday in connection  with the death of Wm. James.  R. W. McFarlane, who has a bond on  the'Snowslioe in Greenwood camp, returned to the city from Rossland and  Spokane on Thursday evening-.  Mrs. Peterson has opened a bakery  and confectionery establishment in the  building- formerly occupied by H. B.  Munroe, opposite Fletcher's drug- store.  Thos. Murphy, of the Enterprise,  Long lake camp, came down from the  mine Thursday and is an inmate of the  hospital, suffering-  from a severe cold.  Miller & Law, of the Anaconda Mercantile Company, take a prominent  position amongst our advertisers this  week.   Their notice will repay perusal.  An apology is due Mr. C. W. H. San-  sora for his name appearing- in another  column as C. W. Swanson, architect.  The name was overlooked in the^proof-  reading-. This is the first case on  record in which the intelJig-ent compositor was not to blame for a newspaper  error.  Some fine specimens of ore from the  Josie claim in Summit camp, were  brought down this week, and sent on to  Messrs. Bennerman and Rickards,  mining brokers of Midway, to be placed in their cabinet. One of the specimens showed native copper. The  shaft on the Josie is now down about  80 feet.  Freight Agent McDonald, of the  C.P.R., spent severaldays in the city  this week, making arrang-ements for  the more speedy delivery of freig-ht to  Boundary Creek points. The company  have in considerations plans that will  revolutionize the whole freig-ht business  of the district, but as they are not yet  complete Mr. McDonald is not at liberty to divulge them. They will be  based, however, on the system recommended by The Times some few weeks  ago,���that the C.P.R. take into their  own hands the delivery of freig-ht between Penticton and Greenwood, having- a freight warehouse and resident  ag-ent at Greenwood and possibly other  points on the route. In the meantime  the business men of the district are put  to great inconvenience by the non-arrival of their g-oods, when most needed.  REPUBLIC   GROUP   BONDED.  The deal for the Republic group of  claims in Smith's camp, it is reported,  has gone throug-h. R. W. McFarlane,  who has lately bonded a number of  claims in British Columbia, is the purchaser. The principal claims in the  group are the Non Such, Last Chance  and Republic, the property of the Re  public Mining* company. Althoug-h  no particulars can be had from the  parties interested, it is understood  that the amount of the bond is $75,000,  of which sum $5,000 is to be spent in  development. Mr. W. T. Smith retains an interest in the group.  Violin/ Banjo% Guitar  :;.Sfi.lM^  (^ AT���>^>  SMITH & McRAE'S,  Books, Stationery, Wall Paper, Fancy  Goods and Notions,  GREENWOOD  B.C.

McLeod of  Midway were in the city Tuesday.  N. Diltz, deputy sheriff of Okanagan  county, Wash., was in town  Tuesday.  E. H. Fletcher, postoffice inspector,  paid an official visit to Greenwood and  Anaconda this week.  Eouis Bosshart, who spent the winter in California and Oregon, returned  to Greenwood on Friday last.  Doc Christie has struck a strong copper lead on the Nighting-ale. The  ledge is about four feet wide.  Geo. Rumberg-er is having the Aetna  and Missing- L/ink in Greenwood camp  surveved this week by J. A. Coryell,  C.E.V '.  "  ,'.'���.  E. C. Brown    is  doing development  Work on the Marg-uerite  in   Deadwood  camp.    He is drifting-at a depth  of  40  feet for the ledg-e.       .  The bar room of the International  received a coat of hard finish plaster  last week, which adds much to the appearance of the room.  Oh the Minnehaha claim in Camp  McKinney, in drifting at the 200-foot  level, a strong lead was tapped, canning- an average assay value of $57 in  trold to the ton.  On the Waterloo claim, a west extension of the Cariboo in Camp McKinney, a very rich lead���supposed to be  the same as that on Cariboo���has been  struck at a depth "of 50 feet.  Geo. Rumberger, Joe Ta.ylor, P.  Hoolahan and R. M. McEntire, of  Greenwood camp, and A. Connors, of  Summit camp, spent Tuesday and Wednesday in town on mining business.  R. Donagan has been working lately  on the Rover, a claim between Boundary'' Falls and Anaconda on Boundary  creek. The work shows a quartz ledge  of about 10 feet in width, and assays  from $4 to $19 in gold.  J. A. Corj'ell, C.E., is surveying the  Monte Carlo, Monte Christo and Gilt  Edge claims in Greenwood camp. The  claims lie north of the Stemwinder and  Montezuma, and have been bonded by  the syndicate represented by J. E. -  Boss.  A. K. Stuart, Inspector of inland  revenue for this district, and for the  past two years ag-ent of the' Midway  Company, moved from 'Midway to  Greenwood on Monday Inst. Mr. Stuart was one of the original publishers  of the Midway^ Advance.  C. W. Swanson, architect, is preparing plans for an addition to the Pioneer hotel. The improvements will  consist of a building-25 by 75 feet, three  stories and a basement. In all there  will be 50 rooms, exclusive of barber  shop, bath rooms and laundry in the  basement.  The work on the Norfolk in Central  camp, under the superintendence of  Jas. Atwood, is showing- up well. Two  shcifts have been s hik. o.-c 41 and the  other 37 fee , witn adrift of 2.1 feet.  It is bel eved th t the No 7 ledge has  been stru -k on th:s c!'-:m. Alex Wallace is doing development work on the  Rob R03'' aa ad ov u^ <.:i....im, on winch  they also cl tim toh.tve the I<jo. 7 ledg-e.  As Messrs. Atwood and Wallace are  not e-iven 10 overestimate the value of  claims, and are both  men  of large ex  perience in prospecting-, it is reasonable to believe that the No. 7 lead has  been struck on both claims.  Among the companies recently reg-istered in London are : The B. C. and  Northwest Territories Exploration  Syndicate, LYtd., capital'.'����� 30,00,0 in ��\  shares, to acquire properties situated  near Greenwood ; and ,The Rossland  arid Boundary Creek Syndicate, IVtd.,  capital ^30,000, in ^"1 shares."  Chas. Gire, consulting engineer for  the French syndicate operating in Central camp, has been in town for the  past week. His company are confining- their work principally tot the St,  Maurice, on which claim a large  amount of development work has  already been done, aggreg-ating- several hundred feet in tunnels and shafts.  D. Henderson, foreman of the Bruce  on Ingram mountain, was in the city  on.Sunday.'. The tunnel on the Bruce  is now in 96 feet and it is expected that  before another hundred feet is run the  ledg-e will be tapped. Some of the  finest specimens of peacock copper  found in the district has been taken  from the Bruce. The "object of the tunnel is to tap the ledge at a depth of  about 150 feet.  The announcement is made this week  of the dissolution of partnership existing- between Messrs. Miller and Law,  general 'merchants, Anaconda, to take  effect on the 1st of March. Mr. Miller  retires from the ��� firm, and Mr. Law  will continue the business. Mr. Law.  will move the stock �� to the Barrett  block in this city as soon as the building-is ready for occupation, and carry  on the business of general merchandise here.      v  Parker's stage from Grand Forks  arrived in Greenwood a half an hour  ahead of time Tuesday, Mr. Parker  arriving- on schedule time. The differ-  ence in; time of arrival of stage and  driver was caused by the breaking of a  roug-h lock. The lock broke and the  driver got out to fix it when the team  started down the hill alone and were  caught opposite the Pioneer hotel b}r  T. McDonnell.    No damag-e was done.  Chief Nelson, of the fire brigade, requests people borrowing ladders belonging- to the city, without his knowledge, to return them as soon as they  have no farther use for the ladders.  In case of fire, it is necessar3r that all  the appliances belonging to the brigade  should be where members can place  their hands on them. So it is hoped  citizens will see the necessity of constructing ladders for private purposes  and leaving those belonging- : to the  brigade where they properly belong;.  Grand Forks appears never to be  safely out of one excitement until it  has another to replace it. .'At.'present  the principal cause of trouble is the  Presbyterian minister at Grand Prairie. The reverend g-entleman seemingly takes'a practical ' view of life, and  sees no harm in dancing and card playing- as social amusements. This does  not suit members and adherents of his  church and charg-es have been sent to  Dr. Robertson, superintendent of missions, to have the pastor removed.  The charg-es are accompanied by a  numerously signed petition. From the  names of the signers to the petition, it  might safely be presumed-that-a large  number of them would not seriously  object to card playing or dancing-as  social amusements, even for  ter of the .gospel.  a   rniuis-  .: Assessment Act and Provincial  Revenue Tax Act.  1'^  Rock Creek Division of Yale District.
