Development work is being steadily pushed forward on  the Winnipeg in Wellington camp, under the superintendence of Mr. Duncan Mcintosh. Mr. Mcintosh is president of  the company. The shaft is down 97 feet and development  work is being carried on by drifting at a depth of 90 feet.  A tunnel has been ruii 45 feet south from the shaft, and a  drift of 17 feet from the tunnel. Another drift has been run  in a lio.^therty direction from the shaft 25 feet, and is in a  body of ore about 6 feet in width, which runs in a northeasterly direction. Three shifts are being run in the mine,  with an average of two feet to the shift, or a total of six  feet in the 24 hours. In all ten men are employed in the  rnine.  '"if  OLD   IRONSIDES AND   KNOB   HILL.  On the Old Ironsides in Greenwood camp, work is progressing rax^idly. The drift is now in about 50 feet and in  ore. Two shifts are at work, the number of men em-  plo3red being ten. East week a new drilling1 machine arrived at the mine. This was necessaiw, to avoid delays in case  the machine in use required repairs. A cross-head has lately been put in. In buildings and machinery1 the Old Ironsides is one of the best equipped mines in the district. The  machine^ consists of a 60 horse power boiler, hoist, pump,  and two Rand drills, and there are two bunk houses, a  kitchen, dining- room, offices and shaft house on the property.   ���������:.��� '  . A hoist, pump, Rand drills and air compressor have been  ordered for the Knob Hill���the adjoining claim���which will  be put in place as soon as it arrives. The compressed air  will be taken b3r pipes from the Ironsides, and both properties worked with power furnished by one boiler. Development work, will be. pushed on this claim so soon as the machinery is in-place.'  -/ir  -��ir  ���tit-  THE    GOLDEN   CROWN.  The boiler and machinery of the Golden Crown mine, Wel-  lington camp, was all in. place the beginning of this week  and steam up. The work of placing- the machineiw has been  under the charge of Reid C. Crowell, of-Bossburg-, who had  charge of putting ���in* the boiler and machinery of the Old  Ironsides in Greenwood camp last fall. A.force, of. men will  be put to work at once in the shaft, and development carried.on much more rapidly with machinery than could be  done heretofore. On the tunnel about 290 feet has been  run and it is expected the lead will be. tapped at 300 feet.  Both Mr. Collins, the superintendent, and Mr. Porter, the  foreman of the mine, are wel 1 satis lied with the results of  development already done, and expect to show up one of the  best mines in the district before the end of 1898. bszaHsa!m&gHfm  *.~. ���j~ ��� *���  THE   BOUNDARY   CREEK   TIMES,  Corporation of the City of  Greenwood,  BY-LAW   NO.

The  hardware was de-  . - ...j- ��� ���      ������.������������ ?  livefed at the Northern Pacific freight  sheds in Winnipeg, on the 8th inst.,  and arrived in Marcus on the l7th,9  days. From Marcus to Greenwood it  took 7 days bjr team. If the Corbin  road were extended to Boundary district, the time in transit of freight  would only hav��� been 10 days, a saving  of 7 days. To the merchant the quick  delivery of freight is no small matter,  as in a large number of instances it is  necessar3r to get returns before payments become due. Heretofore merchants have usually had to pay for the  goods before they get any returns from  them, as very often freight has been  30 and 60 days in transit and no sales  could be made before bills became due.  Are Still Shy.  British  Columbia,   through:its gov-:  eminent, again  begs  to  acknowledge  to the world that she   cannot   get   her  financial scales to balance, as a deficit  has been  reported  for  the  fiscal year,  ending June 30, 1897, of but a trifle less  than     $200,000.      From     session      to  session the worn-out stereotyped proph1  ecy  of a   probable     surplus    remains  unfulfilled, and year by   year  ni3.y  be  witnessed the further  imperilment of  the province's  good   standing   in   the  money  markets.    But for  the remarkable development of the mining industry last year  the   deficit   would   have  been   much   heavier.    A   more   strict  supervision   of   the   "miscellaneous"  column, fewer company promoting- trips  on the part of the ministers  as   '��� officers on dutyV ^ss pap  to  the  organs  and a reduction to the host of  salaried  servants would  material^  assist  premier Turner in his efforts  to  equalize  the receipts and expenditures.

Newspapers have a special grievance  in connection with the new provincial  parliament buildings. It appears that  notwithstanding the enormous outlay,  the magnificent fixtures, costly marbles, mirrors, lounges, etc., etc., the  matter for providing decent accomodation for the press has been entirely  overlooked. How this serious omission could have occurred in view of the  fact that the Speaker is aii old  newspaper man, is incomprehensible.  PossibW the government thought the  omission to .make things comfortable  for newspaper men would have the  effect of gagging the press.  Commenting on the situation the  Colonist says:���" If the reporters must  sit. in the gallery then we say that they  should be provided with better accommodation. Will it be credited that in  that spacious room the only place the3r  can call theirs is between two of the  pillars, where there are three seats, in  front of which a ten-inch board has  been propped up, at so low an elevation that an ordinary sized man must  bend himself nearly double in order to  write upon it ? There is no privacy,  no place to put books, no place to keep  MS., no convenience of any kind whatever. The top rail of a pasture fence  would be perfection itself compared  with what has been provided."  In the course of his remarks in the  debate on the address in reply to the  Speech from the Throne, Mr. Semlin,  leader of the Opposition, expressed the  opinion that the Government should  introduce the redistribution measure  at the earliest opportunity and then  appeal to the country. It was evident,  Mr. Semlin said, that the government  was thoroughly discredited throughout  the country and an3* Government  which did not possess the confidence of  the electorate should not continue in  office and involve the countrv in obligations which it could not hope to be  extricated from in many years to come.

For the purpose of putting- in a -waterworks'sys-  tem the people will be asked to authorize the issuance of debentures for $11,-  000 at six per cent, per annum, payable'  in twenty 3'ears. To pay the interest  011 this loan' and provide a sinking  fund; will require the levying" of a tax  of $1,029.40 011 the rateable property of  the cit3r. -  The amount the electors will be asked to vote for, street improvements is  $14,000 entailing an annual lev3r of  $1,310.14 on the rateable propel-^ of  the city.  There are at present 144 persons entitled to vote 011 these by-laws, of whom  105 are resident. It will require three-  tifths of the votes polled to. carry the  by-law, or if the total number of resident votes were polled 63 votes would  be necessaiy to cany either by-law.  Ainr male or female who is the  assessed owner of land in the city is  entitled to vote on the b\r-laws.  '���' So far- as the waterworks system is  concerned it is expected to be self-supporting-���that is, the water rates will  be sufficient to pa\r interest and sinking- fund on the debentures issued to  provide waterworks for the cit3r, and  the electors will have no difficult\' in  deciding- whether or not it is to their  interests to have such a s3rstem.  The rate on the assessed value of  property in Greenwood to raise $1,310.-  14 for interest and sinking-fund 011 the  street improvements by-law, will be  about one cent 011 the dollar. Of  course the assessed value, of propert\r  'will increase as the town improves, and  at the present rate of progress,   it may  be assumed that property will increase  ��� in value annual^ about 50 per cent.  If this proves a correct .estimate* after  five years, the rate on the dollar will  ' be less than five mills. As the assessed  value increases the rate for interest  and sinking fund will decrease. The  ratepayers are not taking any very  serious chances in. supporting both bylaws. The. matter to be decided is  simply-whether.the people have sufficient faith in the future of Greenwood  to;-.'-warrant.-.them in improving the  streets. If they have, there is no  doubt of the b3r-law being carried.  GREENWOOD AND  DISTRICT.  Dr. Foster was called; to Myers Creek  Saturday, to attend to Mr. IyIcCurd3',  who had broken his leg.  C.

There .will be Initiatory work at  the  Oddfellows' lodge next Tuesday evening.    Members are urged to be present  .and   visiting brethren  will   receive  a  cordial welcome.  . It was reported in town during the  week that the Winnipeg in Wellington  camp, had been sold for a large sum,  but so far no deal has been made. It  is understood tiiat an option has been  given on the property.  Alex Wallace and J. Bell, came down  from Central camp Thursday evening,  where they have been working on the :  Rob Roy. The shaft is down .60 feet  and is in a ledge 5 feet in width, which,  there is no doubt, is the same lead as  that on the No. 7.  E. M. Rice, and party, eighteen in  all, passed through the city Friday  morning to make the permanent location for the C. P. R. line of railway  from the summit of Eholt creek west  to Midway. The location line has been  run as far east as Cascade City.  The Monte Carlo, Monte Christo, and  Gilt Edge claims, in Greenwood camp,  recently bonded from Thos. Roderick  by J. Lyucy of Greenwood, are being  crown granted, and development work  will probably be commenced on them  as soon as the snow is off the   ground.  D. McDuff, of Midway, who recently  purchased the Greenwood blacksmith  shop, is making additions to the building and when finished the new shop  will be 50x24, two stories high. The  lower portion will be the blacksmithing department and the upper will be  used for  wood   working and painting.  Good progress is being made on the  B. C. mine in Summit camp. At a  depth of 130 feet, another chute of ore  was struck on Thursday last, running  17 per cent, in copper. The gold values  of the ore are improving with depth in  the shaft. Two drills are kept working night and day���one in the shaft  and one in the crosscut.  Word has been received from Penticton that the Bassett freight outfit has  been tied up by Sheriff Pemberton.  No information can be obtained as to  what the C. P. R. is going- to=do with  freight coming- into the district by way  of Penticton, but it is   probable   some  new   scheme   will   be  evolved   on'the  postage stamp principle. ,  THE   FALCON   BONDED.  Thos. Hardy and Frank Gome have  bonded the Falcon in Central camp to  T. A. Garland, as agent for parties in  Manitoba. The price stipulated in the  bond is $10,000, 5 per cent, cash and  the balance in six and twelve months.  The Falcon adjoins the Rob Roy,  which is an adjoining claim to theNo.  7, owned by the Boundary Mines company of New York. The claim was  first located in 1891 as the Ellensburg,  but the record was allowed to expire,  and it was relocated by Mr. Hardy in  1893. On the claim there is a 34-foot  shaft and severaLopen cuts. Although  not much. has been shown up by the  development done, recent work on the  -Rob Roy would tend tb prove that the  No. 7 lead is likely to be found on the  Falcon when more thorough development is carried out. .  The   Brooklyn.  Additional  information in regard to  the deal on the Brooklyn was received  just before going to  press  from W. T.  Smith, who states that the  amount of  bond is.$75,000,. 10 per cent., cash,   the  total amount to be  paid in  12 months.  The   deal was made   by  J. E. Boss of  Spokane, for Rod J. McKenzie, a  son  of the senior member of the firm of McKenzie  &  Mann.    The  ledge   of   the  Brooklyn averages in width from 25 to  80 feet with assay values: running from  $8 to $12 in gold and 3 to 8 per cent, in  copper,;    It might be here  stated   that  all the information previously received  by   a   representative   of   The  Times  would  prove  almost conclusively that  amount  of bond on  the  Brooklyn was  $50,000, and  no   information   could be  had from the parties  concerned  in the  deal   until   a  day after   the foregoing  figures were given to  a representative  of the Vancouver News-Advertiser. We  are .still inclined to believe  from  facts  gleaned   from  other  parties, that   the  amount  for   which  the   property was  bonded is less than $75,000.   When information is being given out in regard  to matters in  which  the  public  is interested, the local  newspaper    should  certainly receive the  same  courtesies  as those  extended  to   an  outside concern, and if this is  not  done  the  persons giving out information have only  themselves to blame if the reports published  do not  tally.

For the enlightenment of  those who do not know the geographical position of Mineral City the following might be of interest : It is situated 20 miles from Nakusp, 40 miles  from Kaslo, 25 miles from Slocan City,  75 miles from Rossland, and 7 miles  from Burton.

On Wednesday evening- last the final  arrangements were made for the transfer of the Brooklyn claim in Greenwood camp by the owners to J. E. Boss  of Spokane. The terms of the deal are  $50,000, of which 10 per cent, is cash,  and the balance iii equal instalments  every sixty days. Work is to be commenced on the claim within 30 days. \  The Brooklyn was located on August  1st, 1891, the persons interested being-  G. W. Rumberger, Steve Mangott, Joe  Taylor, W. T. Smith and Marcus Oppenheimer. In December, 1896, Steve  Mangott sold his one-sixth interest in  the claim to E. J. Roberts of Spokane,  for $3,000 cash. Those interested in  the present transfer are G. W. Rum-  berg-er, one-third interest; and E.G.  Roberts, M. Oppenheimer, W. T. Smith  and Joe Taylor, each a one-sixth interest. A larg-e amount of work has been  done on the claim, consisting- of shafts  and open cuts, at an expenditure of  over one thousand dollars. The results  of the development work done must  have been satisfactory, or the transfer  just completed would not have been  made.  The purchase of this property gives  the syndicate, for which Mr. Boss is  agent, a group of some of the best  claims in the district, including the  Stem winder, Montezuma, Brooklyn,  and others in Greenwood camp, and it  is probable that development work will  be pushed on them��as soon as arrangements can be made.  A  GOOD ADVERTISEMENT.  Mention was made in this paper  some weeks ag-o of the exhibit made by  Mr; S. Taylor, of Barrow-in-Furness,  England, of specimens and trophies  collected whilst residing in Greenwood  last spring", arranging- the business of  his deceased brother. A photograph of  the shop front has been received, showing a large double plate-g-lass window  entirely filled with samples of ore and  rock, nugg-ets and dust, heads, horns,  furs and pelts, feathers, photographs,  etc. The samples of ore are all distinctly labeled, and in most cases the  assay values are given. A larg-e plac-  card extends across the window,���  " Specimens from Boundary Creek,  British Columbia." As the store is on  a main street traversed by thousands  of tourists to and from the popular  pleasure resorts of the Isle of Man,  much interest will naturally result as  to this district.  The   First  Brick  Block.  J. W. Nelson of the Pioneer hotel,  has purchased the kiln of brick near  Anaconda, from E. Keightly, and the  addition to the Pioneer will be of brick.  Work will be commenced as soon as  the weather will permit.  The Kettle River Valley railway bill  was broug-ht before the Dominion  house on the 17th hist., by the member  for Yale-Kootenay, and in a letter to  Mayor Wood, Mr. Bostock states that  there is every likelihood of the charter  being- granted.
