Vol III,  GREENWOOD, B,G, SATURDAY, FEBRUARY 5, 1898/  74  No. 22.  lv  i  {*���  i !-  OPENING   OF   THE   LEGISLATURE.  HPHIO leg-islative session will t>e Opened on Thursday  next. The ceremony will be an impressive one  and will have several new features connected  therewith. There will be a new parliament  building- and a new lieutenant-governor. Had  the session been delayed until after the g-eneral  elections, there would also be a new government.  The new parliament .building's have been and are the subject of much adverse criticism, but we think that it will be  neither profitable nor expedient to make them an issue in  the next election. While the reckless expenditure of money  connected with the erection of the building is very properly  o : . . '  a subject for discussion, it is rather late in the  day  to  denounce the. erection of the building-s themselves.  The session should be an important one. While we do not  believe the g-overnment should attempt to pass much new  legislation just as it is about to be relegated to oblivion by  the electors of the province, there are matters of such urgent necessity that they cannot be postponed until after the  election. One of these is redistribution. The Victoria Colonist, the official mouthpiece of the government, has attempted to discourag-e every reference to a redistribution  bill; but even the government ought to foresee the gravity  of the situation should an attempt be made to hold a g-eneral  election without equalizing- the present districts. It is  scarcely conceivable that a g-overnment, much as it disregards the wishes of the people, could for a moment think of  dissolving- the legislature and bringing on  a  g-eneral  elec  tion under present conditions. It would mean the practical  disfranchisement of the electors of Yale and Kootenay, and  other districts whose populations have rapidlj*-" increased  since the last redistribution bill. It would mean that an  elector in Ksquimalt would have eight tinies the voting-  power of an elector in !}ast Yale, or an elector in Cowichan-  Alberni four "times the voting- power of an elector in West  Kootenay.  Supply is another important matter which will require the  most careful consideration of the legislators. There is the  greatest dang-er that the public money will be spent, not  in the public interest but with a view to securing- the greatest political advantag-e. Particularly will this be -= true if  no fair redistribution bill, is introduced. It will then be an  easy matter to buy the pocket boroughs with money that  oug-ht to be expended in useful public works in the important districts of the province.  The government should introduce but little legislation beyond redistribution and,supply at this, the last session of  this parliament.  *�������  ''it?  THE   CITY   COUNCIL.  Waterworks occupied the attention of the city council on  Monday evening. All the aldermen were unanimous in the  opinion that there was an urgent necessity for some system  of waterworks, particularly for fire purposes, but there was  a difference of opinion as to whether it would be wise to  undertake the construction of a reservoir on Twin creek or  the-xonstruction of a larger and more permanent system  from Boundary creek. Aid. Phelan was inclined to favor  the latter, while Aid. Galloway held that the cost of establishing waterworks on Boundary creek, where a pumping-  system would be necessary, would be too much for so young-  a town to undertake. The question was finally disposed of  by a motion to the effect that the Greenwood City Waterworks Company be requested to submit an offer to  the  city  .council, at a special meeting- to be held on Wednesday, as  to what price they are willing- to accept for their water  rig-hts, and that the city solicitor be instructed to inquire  into the validity of all titles and acts, and report at the  same special meeting-.  The Temporal I^oan By-law was re-considered and finally passed, on motion of Aid. Phelan, seconded by Aid.  Galloway. Aid. Kerr g-ave notice that at the next regular  meeting- of the city council he will ask leave to introduce a  by-law to amend the section of the by-law dealing- with  peddlers'licenses.  The council then adjourned, to meet ag-ain on Wednesday.  The adjourned meeting of the city council was held on  Wednesday morning ; all the members were present. The  waterworks question absorbed the attention of the council.  The Greenwood City Waterworks Company offered to hand  over its rig-hts to the city for the actual cost, including- cost  of work, proportionate cost of charter and water rights. The  sum mentioned was $1,615.09.  The city solicitor reported, in compliance with instructions from the council, that he had examined all records and  rig-hts held by the company, and' found that the company  had acquired under its special act 1,000 inches of water from  Boundary creek, about three miles above the city, and that  the president of the company had a record to Twin creek.  Mr. C. 28,. Shaw, CIO., was present by request and addressed the council. He stated that the present dam. on  Twin creekcould be used, but it needed strengthening' at  the north end. There was enough water to fill an eig-ht-  in'ch pipe, and this would be sufficient for 4,000 people.  After a lengthy discussion. Aid. Phelan moved and Aid.  Barrett seconded the following resolution : "That the city  solicitor be instructed to draw up an option, to be signed by  the Greenwood City Waterworks Company and Mr. Robert  Wood, in favor of the city, for all its rig-hts and his rig-hts  to the waters of Twin creek, Boundary creek and Providence creek, for fire, domestic and other purposes, excepting  the company's rights at Boundary Falls, for the price mentioned in Mr. Wood's offer of February 1st, 1898, namely,  Si,615.09, and that the option be until four weeks after such  time as a by-law can be introduced by the council to raise  the necessary money to construct waterworks and the same  is voted upon by the ratepayers ; and that should the Greenwood City Waterworks Company undertake further work in  connection with a waterworks .scheme, the same shall be  subject to the supervision and approval of the council ; and  this option includes the payment by the city of the actual  amount so expended by the company."  The latter clause was added to the resolution because the  Waterworks Company are willing to undertake the purchase  of the necessary pipes at once, in order that they may be  hauled in while the sleighing- is good. The resolution was  carried unanimously.  Immediately after the meeting- of the council a petition  was in circulation, asking the council to introduce a by-law  to raise $25,000 for street improvements, fire protection and  waterworks.  Under the Municipal Act, a petition signed by the owners  of at least one-tenth of the value of real property in the city  must be presented to the council before a by-law can be introduced for raising   money   upon   the  credit  of  the -citj'.  After the by-law is passed by the council, it must be voted  upon by the ratepayer-;. The council shall, at least ten  days before voting day, publish the by-law in the local paper  and post a copy input-lie. The by-law is rejected unless  three-fifths of the votes polled are in its favor. THE   BOUNDARY   GREEK   TIMES.  GREENWOOD AND  DISTRICT.  Mr. W. T. Smith returned from Spokane oti Tuesday last.  Mr, A: H. Black returned on Wednesday from a month's visit to the Coast  'cities.

It is reported, that the residents of  Grand Forks" intend sending- Richard  Armstrong- and John A. Manly as delegates to Ottawa.. ���  Mr. ID. D. Morrison, the well-known  freighter, has been in the district for a  few days. His teams are now hauling  bonded freight.  W. G. McMynn, Midway, has been  appointed deputy clerk of the peace  for the County of Yale, arid Dr. Stanley Smith, Grand Forks, coroner for  the Grand Forks mining* division.  The Knights of Pythias will give a  St. Valentine's dance at Nelson,Wash.,  on the evening- of Monday, February  14th. The committee in charg-e are:  P. B. Nelson, J. E. Kelly arid Henry  White. "���'���<*.  Mr. A. T. Thomas, who is, now engaged with Mr. W. S. Fletcher, the  druggist, had charge of Messrs. McLean &Morell's drugstore in Rossland  and has had eight years' experience as  a pharmacist.  A. K. Stuart, the inland revenue officer, returned from Christina lake on  Wednesday. He reports that the ice  on the lake is very treacherous and  thait several of the settlers have broken  through. Some had narrow escapes  from drowning.  It is-reported that Mr. R. J. McKen-  zie, who has bonded the Enterprise and  . Anchor claims, in Eong Eake camp,  will shortly visit Greenwood. In all  probability a .stamp mill will be placed  on the properties, as the development  work now being carried on is of the  most encourag-ing nature.  The blacksmith shop at the Gold  Bug-was destroyed bjr fire on Monday  night. Mr. J. Morrison, the foreman  at the property, was in the cabin near  by, but the flames had too much headway when discovered and the building  was completely destroyed. The work  on the Gold Bug has been suspended.  Dr. G. M. Foster arrived in Greenwood on Sunday.' He has entered into  a partnership with Dr. -Jakes, whose  practice has increased to such an extent that he found it necessary to secure assistance. Dr. Foster is a graduate of McGill University, Montreal.  He is a native of Pembroke, Ont., and  has renewed his acquaintance with the  several Pern rokites who are now  residents of the district.  The Brandon & Golden Crown Company consented to accept the mining  plant from the Ingersoll-Sergeant  Company.

The Spokesman-Review publishes  the following- interesting- information  regarding the newly discovered process  of changing- silver into gold. Should  the discovery prove 'successful,'!'.it will  not require the services of W. J. Bryan  to satisfactorily settle the silver question. It will also leave Rev- Mr. Guy  without a subject for his lecture on  Washing-ton's Birthday for there will  then be no such thing- as "bimetallism."    The Review says,:  ��� " A small scrap of yellow metal was  submitted to C. M. Fasset for assay  yesterday. His test showed that it  was 70 per cent pure gold ; 20.4 per cent  silver, and 9.6 per cent baser metal!.  This bit of metal came from the laboratory of Professor Stephen H. Em-  mens, the chemist who has startled the  world with the ''announcement' that he  has discovered the secret that has been  sought by the alchemists and sages of  all ages, the transmutation of silver to  gold. If Professor Emmons is to be  believed, this sample of his product,  which tie calls argentaurum, was made  from a Mexican silver dollar.  ���;Professor John Mackenzie received  the specimen enclosed with a letter  from the inventor. The letter is written upon a sheet headed thus : "Emmons, Strong- & Co., dealers in Bullion  & Stocks. Members of the American  Bankers' Association, 1 Broadway,  New York."    It follows:  "New York, Jan. 25, 1898.���Dear  Sir : I am in receipt of your favor of  the 19th inst and very much appreciate  what you are pleasefl to say of my  work.,  G* ������  "I enclose herewith a copy of a  pamphlet, Arcana Naturae, which will  give you a g-ood deal of information  about my arg-entaurum g-old. I have  now produced 738 ounces all of which,  with the exception of one ing-ot, sold to  Eng-lish buyers, has been purchased by  the U. S. g-overhment, my total receipts  being- nearly $10,000. In the near  future my production will be larg-ely  increased. l  " I enclose a specimen of the g-old,  and am, Yours Faithfully,  STEPHEN H. EMMENS."  Professor Mackenzie is also in receipt of a letter from the director of the  mint as follows*:  ' "Washing-ton, D. C, Jan. 26, 1898.���  Sir : In reph*- to your letter of the  20th inst, you are respectfully informed that Professor Emmons has made  at the assay office of New York, several deposits of g-old that he claims to  have manufactured from silver. This  is all the information the department  has upon the subject, as none of the  particulars of his alleg-ed process are  known.    Respectfully Yours,  R.E.PRESTON,  Director of the Mint."  Organization Needed.  The Opposition in East Yale should  at once org-anize for the approaching  provincial election. In some of the  other constituencies in the province  candidates have already been nominated arid the campaig-n inaugurated. It  is probable that the large and populous  district of East Yale will be subdivided  and consequently a political organization'for the entire district would be un  suitable for two separate constituencies, but it is safer to subdivide the  organization than to be without an organization at all when election day  conies.  The  Snowshoe Bond.  Police Magistrate Hallett has gone  to Spokane to close negotiations in  connections with the bonding of the  Snowshoe to, an English Syndicate  represented by R. W. Macfarlane, M.  E. The syndicate has decided to accept the property on the terms already  published and consequently work will  begin on the property in a few days.  A Klondyke Railway.  Messrs. McKenzie & Mann have secured a contract from the Dominion  government for the construction of a  railway from the Stickine river to Tes-  lin lake, on the road to Klondyke. The  road will pass through Glenofa. The  railway is to be completed by September 1st. Messrs. McKenzie & Mann  have deposited $250,000 with the government as security that 'tli^r will complete the road. They secure a grant  of 25,000 acres a mile. The railway  will be 140 miles long.  Better Times.  During the past week travel has been  brisk in Greenwood. The stages from  Marcus have generally a number of  passengers. In all probability there  will be a considerable rush of people  into the district this spring as the  country is becoming- better known,  among mining- investors. A Victoria  hotel man of considerable experience  intends visiting Greenwood shortly for  the purpose of looking over the situation and if business justifies he will  erect a large first class hotel on two  corner lots which were secured by him  some time ago.  Should railway legislation be favorable to the district there cannot be the  least doubt but that Boundary Creek  will command the attention of the investing-public during the coming summer.  Messrs. Dier & Davidson's new hotel  at Fair view has been opened. It is in  charge of M. Marboeuf, a well-known  caterer from Victoria.  -wgaraiTOSCHaanagaaai  zsxMZttV&zzxKJ&nim-minivaxsi  Awarded  Highest Honors--World's Fair,  'Gold Medal, Midwinter Fair.

Dated at Greenwood. B.C.. January 19th. lS'JS,  ~2-<) VV. J. HARDER. THE   BOUNDARY   CREEK   TIMES,  The Knob Hill.  S. H. C. Miner, president of the famous Gran by Rubber Company, recently purchased 700,000 shares in the  Knob Hill Mining Company, owning  the Knob Hill mine in Greenwood  camp. Mr. Miner is also a director of  the Old Ironsides Company, in which  company he is a heavj' shareholder.  The recent purchase by Mr. Miner  gives him a controlling,interest in the  Knob Hill. The company has decided  to extensively develop the property  this spring. Machinery has been ordered and will be on the ground in a  short time. The plant at the Old Ironsides, the adjoining- property, will be  increased by a 60-horse-power boiler  and a compressor, which will supply  the power necessary to develop the  Knob Hill.  Double Stage Line.  . Mr. Parker, the owner of the Greenwood-Grand Forks stage line, is running- double daily stag-es. A stage  leaves Greenwood in the morning ;  another arrives at 11.30 a.m. and leaves  at 1 p.m., arid the morning stage arrives again at 6 p.m. Mr. Parker  found it necessary to run the morning  stage to connect with the Marcus stage  at Grand Forks. The mail, however,  does not arrive until the evening stage.  As Mr. Parker intends continuing the  morning stag-e line, the post-office inspector should give instructions to the  Grand Forks official to deliver mails in  the mornino-.    There is now no  reason  ��� . *o  why the Greenwood mail should not  reach here in the forenoon instead of  late in the evening-.  Why Heinze Sold.  The following- from the Toronto  World will throw some side light on  the recent sale of the Heinze road to  the C.P.R. :  Carlos Warfield,   first  lieutenant  of  F.   A.   Heinze,   the  Rossland  railway  king-, who has been here on and off for  some  weeks,   has  joined  his  chief in  Montreal, and developments in connection with the Rossland   railway  question may shortly be expected.    As previously ���  stated,     the   C.P.R.    offered  Heinze $800,000 for his smelter at Trail  and his railway from opposite  Robson  to Trail and Rossland.   Heinze wanted  $1,300,000, and  rather  than pay  such  .exorbitant   figures   the   C.P.R.   determined to build an independent  line   to  Rossland.    But at this point Mr. Blair  had to be reckoned with.      He declined  to approve of  the  C.P.R.   plans,   and  without   such   approval   the  company  could not stir   a  peg.    Mr.   Blair   has  been hounded from all parts of Ontario  by stalwart liberals  who  want  to  see  Toronto, Hamilton and Eondon secure  the  Rossland   trade,   as   against   Spokane, and this they could not get owing  to Heinze's  high   railwa}'   rates.    The  story goes now that Blair has   told Mr.  Heinze that he cannot hold   the C.P.R.  at bay any longer ; hence  Heinze will  doubtless approach the company again  to renew negotiations.    If  the   C.P.R.  acquires the smelter at Trail, an immediate drop in the cost of   smelting may  be looked for, with   the   immediate   result of unlocking-   millions  of  Ontario  capital.

During the winter a large amount of  development work was carried out on  the Mother L/ode mine in Deadwood  Camp. Recently the work was suspended but the Boundary Mines Company who own the property intend to  sink a permanent working shaft to a  depth of 500 feet during the year and  to otherwise get the mines in a shape  to ship ore, unless unfavorable railway  news should modify this plan.  A statement of the work done on the  propertj-' will* no doubt prove interesting and The Times is indebted' to Mr.  F. Keffer, M. E}., the manager of the  -.Boundary Mines Company, for particulars regarding the same.  As has been stated heretofore/the  crosscut tunnel first run at the Mother  Ivode is 246 feet long, 203 feet of which  is in pre ; measured at right angles the  ore body is about 185 feet across.  Although but a medium amount of ore  found in this crosscut can be treated directly ( that is without concentration ) still the increase of values over  surface assays are so marked that it  was decided to sink a winze 100 feet  deep and again crosscut.  The winze was started 152 feet from  the mouth of the tunnel and it followed the dip of this ore asnearly as possible. Some very nice ore was found  at the bottom of this winze. The  crosscut was started toward the foot  wall side of ledge at first and it was  run 12 feet in this direction until a  poorer stratum of ore was encountered.  The whole of this 12 feet ore can be  smelted direct^ without any sorting  and with the wash out it compares favorably with the shipping ore of the L*e  Roi and other Rossland mines,  although the values are more in the  copper than in the gold, whereas  Rossland ores are the reverse in this  case.    The crosscut  was  then  turned  toward  the  hanging  wall/which wall  was found 71   feet  from the winze ; 38  feet   of  this   crosscut   was in ore that  will pay to smelt after Avaste   is   taken  out, the waste  constituting  from 25 to  40 per cent, of  the  whole.    About 5 to  6 of the 38 feet are in ore  that can   be  smelted   profitably   without  any  sorting.    At 38 feet a ." horse '' of barren  rock came in;  the   " horse " is about 4  feet thick   and it  lies   at  nearly right  angles to the hanging  wall,   being so  much inclined that the crosscut was in  it    for   nearly   15   feet.    Beyond   the  ." horse " the  ore  came in   again   and  from 60 feet to the end  of crosscut  at  71 the grade of this ore was again very  good it haying nearly as hig-h an assay  value as that found in crosscut toward  foot wall.    The  assays  from  crosscut  are  much  better than those from tunnel 100  feet   above,   showing improvement with depth.  BOUNDARY CREEK MINING & MILLING CO.  The adjourned meeting of the Boundary Creek Mining & Milling Company  was held in Rendell & Co's. hall on  Thursday last. There'was not such a  large attendance of shareholders as at  the previous meeting. The president,  Mr. G. Arthur Rendell, was in the  chair. The financial statement reported correct by Mr. W. B. Paton,  was read and the president moved that  this together with the directors' report'  be accepted. The motion was put and  negatived, Mr. D. A. Holbrook who  owns the majority of the stock voting  contrary.  Mr. Rendell then left the chair and  Mr. Holbrook was appointed chairman.  He moved that the directors for the ensuing year be as follows :  C. tt.- Shaw, J. W. Nelson, D. W.  Holbrook,, A. McKenzie and D. A. Holbrook. The motion was seconded by  J. ~Ei. Davis and declared carried.  Mr. Holbrook then moved and Mr.  Davis seconded " that this meeting of  shareholders of the Boundary Creek  Mining & Milling Company, Iytd, re-"  affirms the resolution passed at the  special meeting held on the 14th day  of May, 1897, relative to the purchase  of the property . known as the McDonnell raiich, disapproves of the action of  the directors on the 22nd day of December in reference to the sale of said  property and urges the new board of  directors to take such steps as may be  necessary to protect the company's  rights and interests in the premises."  Mr. Holbrook voted for this motion and  consequently was carried.  The meeting then adjourned.  Received for any Magazine or  Newspaper at Publishers'  prices.

The regular meeting of the Mining  & Commercial Association was held on  Wednesday last and was largely attended. Mr. Thos. Hardy, the president, occupied the chair. Mr. E. Jacobs tendered his resignation as secretary of the association. This, was  .accepted and Mr. Black was appointed  secretary temporarily until next meeting, when the permanent secretary will  be appointed.  Mr. Hardy, on behalf of the freight  committee, reported that he had interviewed Mr. Martin, of the Spokane &  Northern Railway during his visit here  and that the latter assured, him that  his company were willing to allow re.-'..  sponsible parties designated by the  merchants to haul bonded freight. Mr.  Martin also promised to endeavor to  maintain a uniform .rate from Marcus  to Greenwood. Mr. Morrison, who has  charge of several freight teams, promised a cent and a quarter rate until the  road broke up. Mr. Hardy stated that  all merchants in the district except one  were shipping via Penticton. The  committee were thanlced for their  efforts.  The committee on railways reported  that they had forwarded all resolutions  passed b3r the association to the persons mentioned therein.  The question of sending a delegate  to Ottawa was then considered. The  majority of those present appeared to  be in favor of sending a delegate, but  in order to get as full an expression of  opinion as possible, it was decided to  call a public meeting on Saturday next  to elect a delegate. A committee consisting of Messrs. J. W<. Nelson, W. T.  Smith and Aid. Galloway were appointed to collect the necessary funds  to meet the delegate's expenses, and at  the same time, notify the people of  Midway, Boundary Falls, Anaconda,  Greenwood and the different mining  camps of the meeting on Saturday  evening.  Messrs. J. Douglas and W. T. Thompson, Midway, and J. J. Gulley, Neil  Lament and J. H. Macfarlane were  elected members of the association.  High Assay Values.  Even if the mother lode in Klondike  has been discovered, it is question -ble  whether it will ossay hi >-her th m some  Boundar}*-Creek ores. L:->st week G.iess  Bros, ass yed some ore from the Enterprise mine in Long Lake camp, and  the resu-1 was as follows : Gold values,  $5,849.27 to the ton; silver, 1,361.28  ounces to the ton. If the Enterprise  continues as at present, it m >y be necessary for the owners to guard their  mine carefully for fear someone steals  ore from the dump.  Public Mcct-ng.  A public meeting will be held in Rendell & Co.'s hall this evening for the  purpose of appointing a delegate -from  the district to go to Ottawa to w;:tch  r lilway legislation.. As the matter is  important, the district ought to be well  "represented at the meeting.  ��� -  A  I  A  & McLEO:  4  ��  'A  e  I  t  e  A  O  T  ?

A mining district which was never  boomed and of which little is known is  that surrounding the main Kettle river  about 30 miles above Rock creek. The  mineral indications warrant the conclusion that this district will take rank  among the wider known mineral regions of southern Yale. The development work already done has proven  that there are ores in quantity and  quality.  Mr.   J.   J.   Hibbard,   a   well-known  . ' .- '.-'*.���,"��� ''  prospector, arrived in Greenwood on  Sunday. He has been developing the  Belcher, a claim owned by Messrs.  Wood and Galloway. The Belcher is  situated near the main Kettle river,  30 miles north of Rock creek. A shaft  has been sunk to the depth of 40 feet;  the shaft is in two feet of solid ore, encased in another two feet of ore matter.  Mr. Hibbard brought some average  samples with him and assays from  these yielded from $11 to $22 in gold;  fhey also contained copper values. The  vein on the Belcher has been stripped  for a considerable distance.  The Silver Dollar, a property in the  vicinity- of the Belcher, has recently  been bonded by Mr. Colleville for an  English syndicate, for $35,000. Five  per cent, was paid in cash. Work will  be resu med on the Silver Dollar in a  short time. A tunnel has been run in  on the property for 15 feet; there is a  well-defined vein, 10^ feet, and the  average assays give the high value of  $27 in gold.  Mr. Guttinge is also working a  quartz vein. He is. down 15 feet and  has 20 inches of ore which yitlds $30 in  all values, principally gold and copper.  He has several properties in the district.  Messrs. Sullivan and Waddle are  working two or three claims in the district. On one they have a 27-foot tunnel, and when Mr. Hibbard left they  were expecting to strike the ledge. A  Mr. Mattison has also a promising  property in the district and he expects  to start work as soon as he can get in  supplies.  There are also some good ranches in  the locality, Sullivan's ranch being  among the best. Where his ranch is  located the valley of the main Kettle  river widens out to a distance of over a  mile, and the rich prairie land will  grow almost anything. A mountain  stream which runs through the property affords a cheap means for irrigation.  One of the greatest drawbacks to the  early and greater development of the  district is the lack of a bridge across  the West Fork. In order to reach the  district it is necessary to cross the  West Fork about three-quarters of a  mile from its confluence with the main  river. Some years ago prospectors and  others crossed here by means of a basket, but now it is necessary to ford the  river,���a rather dangerous task, as the  current is swift. Appreciating the importance of the district, the residents  in all parts of southern Yale signed a  petition urging upon the lands and  works department to erect  a bridg-e at  this point, but so far nothing has been  done. As considerable development  work will be carried on next summer,  and as many prospectors intend to try  their fortunes in that section, it is  hoped that the government will see its  way clear to erect the bridge. It is  more importan i even than a road, for  the present trail is fairly good.  Mr. Hibbard is also an experienced  trapper, and during the winter secured  some splendid fisher and mink skins.  Lancashire House Ball.  A ball and supper was given at the  Lancashire House, Midway, on Monday evening last. There was a large  attendance, several sleigh loads having.gone down from Greenwood. Porter's orchestra supplied the music. The  supper was excellent, the menu including many luxuries.  Corporation of the City of Greenwood.  BY-LAW   NO.    4.

Below are twelve reasons why a  charter should be granted to the Kettle  River Valley Railwa3r Company :  (1) Because a competing line will be  of the greatest advantage to the district.  (2) Because the business of the district will be' subject* to much heavier  charges with only one line.  (3) Because there can now be no competing line other than Corbin\s extension.  (4) Because as good a rate will be  made on ores to smelters in' British  Columbia as to smelters on the'Columbia river iu the United States.  (5) .Because the Kettle .River Valley  Railway will give the district connection byway of at least two transcontinental lines with Eastern Canada, and  enable the people to ship goods   direct  in bond from Eastern Canada or  from  the Coast in B.C.  (6) Because the lower rates resulting  from competing lines in everything  shipped into and out of the country  will permit the working of the lower  grade ores, and thereby increase immensely the business of the ..country.'  (7) Because, were it not for the competing lines in West Kootenay, the  mine owners who are producing- ore  would be paying at least $5.00 a ton  more for freight and treatment charges  whether the ores were shipped out of  the country or worked in  the   county.  (8) Because not until a district secures rival transportation lines and  cheap fuel can the ores be smelted and  matted in the district and near the  mines.  (9) Because until this time comes,  no restrictions should be placed on selling ores in the best markets.  (10) Because the company asks for  no cash subsidy or land grant.  (11) Because a bare charter should  be denied no ..company.  (12) Because Corbin will give the  district railway connection at once if  he secures the charter.  New Yukon Regulations.  The Department of the Interior have  promulgated new regulations for the  Yukon district. A creek, gulch, riveter hill claim shall not exceed 250 feet  in length in the general direction of  the stream or ravine on which it*fronts'  and riot more than 1,000 feet in width.  i^yery alternate ten claims shall be  held by the government of Canada. A  free miner's certificate, good for one  year, costs $10 ; for a company, $50 ; if  of more than $100,000 capital, $100. A  royalty of 10 per cent, on the gold mined shallbe levied and collected  on  the  ��� c  output of each   claim  over  and  above  the first $2,500 output.  GREENWOOD AND   DISTRICT.  The C. P. R. surveyors are now at  work near Boundary Falls.  Mrs. J. F. Hemenway and Mrs. Mc-  Intyre, were among the visitors to the  city this week.  Another masquerade carnival will be  g-iven on the Greenwood Skating Rink  on Monda3r evening.  W. G. McKenzie, traveling- representative for Wood, Vallens & Co., paid  Greenwood a business   visit this week.  i  Mr. A. McQueen, the manager of W.  B. Davey's big store at Grand Forks,  visited Greenwood this week. Mr.  McQueen expressed his surprise at the  substantial appearance of Greenwood.  He had been under the impression  that here was a straggling village instead of a progressive city.  Messrs. Moran and Torme}*" who purchased a lot on Copper street a short  time ago to erect a hotel there, will  soon come to Greenwood from Spokane  for the purpose of building. The plans  for a three-story frame building- prepared by Mr. A. B. Campbell have already been accepted b}' them.  ��� Dr. Pope, superintendent of education, has signified his willingness to  grant a temporary certificate to Mr.  Keith who applied for position of  teacher of the Greenwood school. Mr.  Keith holds a first class New Brunswick certificate. His was the only application received when the trustees  made application for a temporary certificate.

Macfarlane, the superinr  tendent of the Sunset mine, returned  from a three months' visit to Montreal  and other eastern centres on Monday.  He reports that the Eastern people  have gone crazy about Klondyke, but  that also considerable attention is  given to British Columbia mines.  Boundary Creek district is not so well  known in the East as Kootenay, and  mining men are anxious, to secure information concerning the district.  While Kootenay is well advertised in  the Eastern centres, there is no literature to be found describing this district. Mr. Macfarlane visited New  York, Chicago and other large cities.  There was a general feeling when he  left Montreal that Corbin would build  a railway into this district.  Mr. Macfarlane intends erecting the  necessary buildings on the Sunset immediately and mining will begin shortly afterwards, probably  by March 1st.

Mr. Heinze has sold out his railway  and smelting interests to the Canadian  Pacific Railway Company. Despatches  from Montreal are to the effect that  Mr. Heinze had been in that city for  two days, conferring with Sir William  Van Home, president of the C.P.R.,  and as a result of the meeting the  Heinze line will pass into the hands of  the Canadian Pacific Railway Co., as  will also the smelter at Trail. The  C.P.R. is to take possession at once.  The purchase of the Heinze road will  give the C.P.R. direct entrance into  Rossland, without constructing a railway to Robson. It will also remove  Heinze's opposition to its coming into  Boundary Creek district.  It was scarcely expected that there  would come such speedy and striking  evidence of the correctness of the position taken by the residents of boundary Creek district with regard to  Heinze's railway. At the public meeting held last week, the consensus of  opinion was to the effect that Mr.  Heinze wanted more subsidies in order  to demand a higher price from the  C.P.R*.,* and recent events show that  such was. the case. The good people  of Vernon who poured out their sympathy on Heinze and said harsh things  about the C.P.R. will derive but little  satisfaction from the sale.  It is not yet known whether the C.  P.R. Company intend to assume the  obligations imposed by the charters  granted to Heinze. Should the company do so, in order to earn the land  grants and subsid}' it must begin construction from the Penticton end by  August next.  The sale should spur the people of  Boundary' Creek district to more vigorous efforts in Mr. Corbin's interest.  The Corbin railway is practically the  only competitor left. Should he be denied a charter, the C.P.R. Company  are masters of the railway situation  and they can build into the Boundary  Creek district when the}*- please. If  Corbin gets his charter, the C.P.R. will  build at once in order to secure its  share of the trade.

A  Monster   Petition.  The   Times   heartily   endorses   the  idea of circulating- a petition in the district  lying-'   between   Christina   Eake  and Penticton urg-ing-that such  legislation will be introduced as will insure  the early  construction  of  a   railway.  Such a  petition   should   set   forth the  resources,  of   the   district.    We   fear  however,   that  such   a  petition would  not be received���"; as it is, if we mistake  not, contrary to the rules of the  house  to  receive  petitions which   seek to secure the expenditure of public  money.  The petition would serve  the  purpose  of forcibly drawing attention to the requirements-of the district  and  in this  respect   is   sure   to   prove   beneficial.  The great trouble in the past has been  that members  of  parliament  had   no  adequate  appreciation  of  the importance of the  district   and  consequently  their advocacy of plans seeking to  assist in its development was wanting- or  at best very lukewarm.    When legislators become  enthused oyer  the riches  of Boundaiw Creek, when they feel that  here   is   a   district   which  if  given a  chance will play no mean, part in making this Canada   of   ours   a nation of  many people and great wealth,   their  .support can be  easily obtained.    The  aggressive missionary work necessary  to place the   district  in   that position  which it ought to occupy   must  be undertaken   by  the people most directly  interested.    The Times which has been  ^'continually-urging the people to take a  greater public interest  in   those  question which vitally concern the prosper-  itv of the district   will  be   the  last  to  *' ' o  discourage any reasonable scheme by  which a unanimous expression is giveu  to the view8 of the residents. We deem  it wise, however, to venture the opinion that such a petition as contemplated will , be irregular. If that opinion  is an erroneous one we will be pleased  to have the error corrected.  There are many other plans of making- known the resources of the district  that sug-g-est themselves and all that is  wanted to make them a success is the  united efforts of all the people.  Building   Operations.  During the year which has just closed, carpenters have been kept busy   in  Greenwood.    Although there has been  no recprd kept of the amount expended  in   the   construction   of   building-s   in  Greenwood it   will   foot   up   to   many  thousand dollars.    There are still   several buildings uncompleted and others  for which plans   are   being-   prepared.  Among- the  buildings   erected   during*,  the   year   were   the following- :    John  Hamill, a two storey block and a three  storey hotel ; Rendell  &   Co.,   addition  to   store ;   Russell   & Co.,   two   storey  block ; the Commercial   hotel ;   Barrett  and Hodg*son, residence and two storey  block; Nels Leplante, two stores-" block;  W. S. Fletcher,   two   storey block ; Olson   and   Phelan,   warehouse;   C. vE.  Shaw, residence ;  N.  Cleir,  residence:  W.. J.    Harber,  residence :   A.    Fisher,  residence ; D. W. Holbrook,   residence ;  ���W.* W. Gibbs. office and residence.    In  '���addition to   these   there    were   many  small buiding-s erected.  Hewitt Bostock, M.  P.  Hewitt Bostock, M. P., has returned  from the east. In a letter to a resident  of Greenwood he stated that he was  greatly pleased with the address which  had been recently forwarded to him.  The information contained therein  will be of great service to him during-  the session. Mr. Bostock has not yet  g-iven up the idea of visiting" Boundar}*-  Creek. As soon as he returns from  Victoria he will make a, trip through  southern Yale1���unless he is incarcerated in a provincial dungeon on account  of the criminal libel with which he is  charg-ed by Messrs. Turner and Poole3\  Commercial   Association.  The first regular meeting of the  Boundary Creek Mining & Commercial  Association will be held in Rendell &  Co's. hall on Wednesday evening- next.  As matters of public interest will come:  up for discussion a large attendance is  expected. There is nothing-so discouraging or so damaging to the future of  an association of this kind as a slim  attendance at its first meetings. If  every one interested in Boundary  Creek will make ah effort to attend the  meetings and take part in the discussions the association , is sure to be a  power for g"ood in   the   interests of the  district. .'���'..*���  Redistribution.  It is scarcely possible that the provincial government will take the advice of its Victoria organ and shelve  the question of redistribution. The  temptation; to follow such advice is  great. With its supporters representing- populous districts deserting it, the  most expedient thing for the government to do would be to buj** up the  pocket boroughs and let the centres of  population go unrepresented. Such a  plan would be almost sure to secure for  the province a perpetuation of that  progressive and efficient government  with which it has been blessed for some  years past. But it can scarcely be expected that statesman like Hon. JY..H.  Turner and Hon. C. E. Pooley would  stoop   to   such an   expedient.    States-  Awarded  Highest Honors���World's Fair,  Gold Medal, Midwinter Fair.  Pure (irape Cream of Tartar Powder.  YEARS THE STANDARD,  men who attempt tovindicatetheirhon-  or ( at the expense of the rate payers of"  the province) when it is assailed by  such irresponsible newspapers as the  London Times can be relied, upon -  The people can feel confident that they  will introduce such a measure of redistribution as will give every man an  equal voice in the government of the  country. ,  An elector in Esquimalt will not then  have 8 times as much influence as an  elector in East Yale nor will the vote  of an elector in Iyillooet'1 represent six  times as much legislative power as.the;  vote of an elector in southwest Kootenay. ���      ��� !.;  The province is indeed fortunate at  this juncture to have the ship of state  under the control of such efficient statesman. It may cost the ratepayers a little more to defend their reputations  but they are reinbursed by that satisfaction and confidence which are the  accompaniments of the works of the  members of the present government.  According- to the Victoria Colonist  Princeton is Penticton. The Colonist,  the dear old lady, has lived long-  enough in this province to be better  acquainted with its geography. The  Colonist will not feel offended if we  volunteer the information that Penticton is at the southern extremity of  Okanagan lake, and Princeton is situ-:  ated on the Similkameen river, at least  forty miles south-west of Penticton.

The   Snowshoe.
L/ike the Winnipeg- and the B. C. the
Snowshoe is. destined to go through all
the excitement of being- underbond
twoor three times before being permanently placed among- the great properties of Boundary Creek district: As
this method of procedure in dealing-
with the best properties is the rulejmd
not the exception in the district, the
owners of the Snowshoe have been
furnished with another striking proof
of the richness of their property.
The Snowshoe  was  bonded by J. P.
Harvey   acting-  for  Mr.   Patsy   Clark
some two months ago.    Three shifts of
four men  were  kept  at work  and the
larg-e body of high  grade   ore was encountered   to    a   considerable   extent.
Then machinery was needed to operate
the mine and the owners  g-ave permission   to  stop  work  for  two   weeks in
order to allow time for the purchase of
machinery.    It was even reported that
the  plant  had been bought, but it appears that Mr. Clark's other varied and
extensive mining- interests made it necessary for him to throw up the bond on
the Snowshoe  and  consequently   this
was done.    The owners were quite willing-,   as  representatives of big mining-
companies were anxious to  secure  the*
property.    In fact.no   sooner   was   it
made public that the bond had been relinquished  than   experts   had   opened
negotiations with the owners   and out-
Side capitalists asked for short options
JLclgive time to examine   the  property.
A deal  has   almost  been   closed and
.-■-■■■' //■'���•'
before The Time's goes to press it is
probable that the Snowshoe will be
bonded for even a higher figure than
that of Mr. Clark's.
A  Well-Earned  Holiday.
Mr. W. W. Gibbs left Greenwood on
Thursday for Portland, Oregon, going
put by way Of Penticton. Mr. Gibbs
is one of the pioneers of Boundary
Creek. He struggled with the other
few who, had faith in the district long-
before it commanded the prominent position it now enjoys! Mr. Gibbs' perseverance was rewarded and he returned to his family in Portland with no
slender purse in consequence of his
having sold some valuable mining-
properties.
Mr. G*bbs   or   "Billy"    as   he   was
familiarly called by  the boys, is best
satisfied  when   he   is  roughing it in a
new   mining  country.    It would  be a
s i'.fe guess that before long he  will be
■ i ;.k. in Boundary Creek or else he will
e one of the first of the   argonauts  in
some newly discovered eldorado, bring--.
no* joy or disappointment to the hardy
rospectors when they come to get the
suits of   assays   made   for them.    If
-ese assaj^s do   not   indicate   that the
iscoyeries   are  rich,   the  prospectors
n rest  assured that they  are accur-
tte.

The Times  expresses  the hope that  all its readers may enjoy  a larg-e  slice  of happiness and prosperity during- the  year which Father Time ushered in today.    If  the  signs  of   times   are  not  playing- us false, it will be a year filled  -with   important   results  as  far as the  country in g-eneral and0this district, in  ���particular, are concerned.    During- the  past six   months   much   attention   has  been directed towards the western portion of  the  Dominion,   and  Boundary  Creek  district has   enjoyed   the foretaste of that prosperity which   will  be  its lot during- 1898.    The  people of the  district should take  advantag-e  of  the  tide which has turned in this direction.  Nature  has  been  extremely generous  in   her   gifts.    No    district   possesses  greater   possibilities.    But  the people  should not lose sight of the fact  that  the growth of some of   the most  richly  dowered  portions  of   the   earth   have  been thwarted by   the  lethargy of the  people.    The     wealth   of      Boundary  Creek may lie dormant for j^ears unless  those directly interested show sufficient  confidence  in their  possessions to defend their rig-hts  ag-ainst the  aggressiveness and importunities of less favored sections.  I;et the people unite in asking- for  reasonable assistance to exploit the  wealth of the district, let them with  one voice make known the wonderful  resources of this portion of the province and success will surely crown  their efforts. L,et them grumble because governments refuse to help them  who neglect to help themselves and in  all probability disappointment will be  their portion in 1898 as in 1897.  In municipal matters, 1898 should be  a year filled with no unimportant results.    Greenwood    is   a   city     whose  prosperity is so closely identified with  the rich mining- country which surrounds it that its' future is assured.  But here, also 'much depends on the  enterprise of its citizens. During* 1898  the city can be improved and beautified. It can have good streets, good  sidewalks, an efficient system of waterworks, and be lighted by a powerful  electric plant. Again the responsibility is thrown oh the people. It is for  them to say who shall, be the municipal  fathers for the current year. There is  plenty of good material from which to  make an energetic and j>rogressive  municipal government. The electors  should become impressed with the  great responsibility they assume in  making their choice.  It is stated on very good authority  that the road to a certain locality possessed of a climate warmer than that of  Greenwood at the present time is paved  with the good intentions of well meaning but weak-willed people. The work  of making New Year resolutions is almost sure to prove unprofitable. It  would be wise to forego considering  the many things which you intend to  dp and never will do and fill yourself  with the patriotic determination to be  a public-spirited and progressive citizen of the town of Greenwood or the  district of Boundary Creek during  1898.  Another mining deal was closed this  week when R. W. Macfarlane, M. Ev,  acting for Mr. G. D. McKay secured a  two months' option on all of C. N.  Collins' properties in Eongl^ake camp.  The claims include the C. O. D., W. J.  Bryan, O. K. Fraction and Maude S.  It will be remembered that Mr. McKay  secured a bond on the Ruby some  months ago.  Senator Templeman of the Victoria  Times has been committed to stand  trial for criminal libel. The crime  with which he is charged is that the  Times printed an article published in  the Province in which Messrs. Pooley  and Turner were criticized for their  connection with speculative companies. The preliminarj*- trial of Mr.  Bostock, M. P., and the editor of the  Province was not concluded when the  last advices left the capital.  Stationp;ry. .  Domestic & Imported Cigars, Pipes.  Fruits and Candies.

It is anything but edifying to peruse  the  editorial   pages   of   the   Rossland  Miner these days.    Its lack  of  knowledge of the   subjects   under discussion  is   only  exceeded  by the virulence of  the  ianguag-e  in which   its   errors are  clothed.    The    Times     has     already  pointed out many errors in the Miner's  articles advocating the construction of  a   wagon    road   over   the  precipitous I  mountains leading   to Christina Eake.  The Miner is equally unreliable when  it discusses   railway   matters   as they  affect  Kootenay   and   Boundary Creek  districts.    It displays ignorance1 of the  views of the people of this district when  it asserts that they are of one accord in  supporting   the   railway   policy of the  gentleman  whose cause the Miner espouses.    Outside   its   advocaxry   of Mr.  Heinze's schemes, the  Miner  particularly 'urges that Kob ten ay be legislated into an argosy into which the illimitable'wealth of" Boundary   Creek district   must   be     poured.    The     Miner  works itself into" a frenzy when the extension of Corbin's system of railways  is  suggested.    We  beg  to assure  the  Miner that nine-tenths of the people of  Boundary   Creek  district   are   wicked  enough and unpatriotic enough to hail  the news of  the   building  of Corbin's  railway.    And   why   shouldn't    they 1&  The Miner would, if it could, force  all  Boundary Creek ores   to be  treated in  Kootenay.    The  people   of   Boundary  Creek desire to pay no  tribute  to  any  one railway or smelter.    The3r ask that  they be   not   denied the   advantage of  competitive smelter and freight rates.  The people of Boundary Creek district  believe that  such   advantages  can  be  more readily secured by   the   construction   of Corbin's   railway.    They may  be wrong, but if  the Dominion  parliament  does  its  duty  such   advantages  can   be   secured.    When    Mr.   Corbin  goes to the Dominion house for a charter to extend his railway into the Boundary    Creek   country,   let   parliament  make   it   a   condition   to securing-   the  charter,   that   Corbiu   enters   into   an  agreement to deliver ores to any smelter on the Columbia river on the British  Columbia side of the  line   at  as low a  rate as ores will be delivered at  smelters on the Columbia river on the American side.    This will give  the  ore producers of    Boundary   Creek   a   larger  market for their   ores and the healthy  competition between smelters.    This is  surely a decided  advantage and an advantage that as far as we can   see can  "be secured only by  railway  communication with the south.  The Rossland Miner might turn aside  for the nonce from the consideration  of the " free booters " tand the " chart-  erniongers  and   all  the  other   bogie  men that shocks its nervous system,  and discuss railway matters from that  point of view which relates more parti' ularly to'the public interest and less  to the machinations of   the individual.  It is reported that the few days' run  of the Tin Horn mill, Fairview, proved  very satisfactory, $1,000 being saved  on the plates. This was from 25 tons  of ore.  But we believe that our Treatment, our  Prices, and the Quality of our Goods has  pleased more people during the past year  than  any  other  store on Boundary Creek,  400 PER CENT. INCREASE  in our business during the past year jus^  tifies us in making the above assertion/ The  White Front is becoming a household word  mns-QiczEas  throughout the valley, Why? Because -'tis,  recognised as the safe, sure and reliable store  at which to purchase Groceries, Furnishings  and Clothing, Everything in our store is  sold under a guarantee to be just as repre^  sented,  Mistakes or errors cheerfully rectified  Respectfully,  the  People's  Servants,  OLSON & PHELAN.

A social dance was held in Rendell  & Co's. hall on Wednesday evening.  J. C. Olson of Olson & Phelan returned on Thursday from a visit to Spokane.  It is reported that Corbin's surveyors  are completing the preliminary survey  along tlie Kettle river.  Cyril J. Bales of the Windsor hotel  has returned from a three months' visit to New Westminster.  G. H. Collins, managing director of  the Golden Crown Company has gone  on a business visit to Rossland.  Mr. W. F. Honey the secretar}*-- of the  Winnipeg Company has returned from  Spokane where he spent Christmas  with his family.  The. wife of T. Q. Butler has presented   her   husband   with   a   New Year's  gift���a     promising    youngster.    The  population   of   Greenwood   is   rapidly   .  growing.  A grand ball was held in Land's hall,  Anaconda, last evening. The music  was good and the larg-e crowd present  heartily enjo3*-ed themselves. An appetizing supper was served at the Palace hotel.  Boundary Valle3' L/odge, I. O. O. F.,  will install officers next Tuesday evening. On Thursday evening Boundary  Ivodge I. O. F. will install officers.  After the installation a public banquet  will be held in the Imperial hotel.  Porter's   orchestra   will be   in   attend  ance arid dn excellent programme is  being prepared for the occasion.     /--.-  - A large quantity of building material  has been hauled from Greenwood- for  the new buildings at the B. Cl   mine.  Mr. A. K. Stuart, the Dominion Inland Revenue officer has decided to  make Greenwood his headquarters.  The pump house erected bj-- Rendell &  Co. has been enlarged and converted  into a neat and comfortable office for  .his use. ��� ~7  A miner named Henry Peterson was  taken to the Greenwood hospital on  Sunday last. Peterson was rather  seriously injured having jfalien down a  shaft in the Cariboo mine. He is  steadilj' improving and will be out in  a few days. Frank Wood of the Camp  McKinney hotel accompanied the. injured man. Mr. Wood returned to  Camp McKinney on Tuesday.  There arrived at the residence of Mr.  J. C. McArthur on Wednesday evening a precious New Year's gift and  "Mac" is wearing a broad smile these  -days. Although Mr. McArthur has  sworn allegiance to the land of the  Stars and Stripes he has not forgotten  his duty to the land of his birth and as  a, propitiation for his expatriation he  has, presented Canada with the neu-  cleus of a 200-pound specimen of manhood who will in all probability enjoy  the strength and prowess of his affable  and muscular father.  Farrell & Midgeon's Properties.  Mr. W. T. Smith intends leaving for  Spokane in a few days.. The particulars of the sale of all of Farrell & Midgeon's properties are not to hand, as  the final negotiations were completed  at Spokane after the return of Mr.  Boss there. Outside of Farrell & Midgeon's properties, in each of which Mr.  Smith had a quarter interest, he holds  some valuable niining interests in  Boundary Creek district. They will  probably net him a large sum of money  which he so richly deserves after staj---  ing with the district for over nine years  Recordia Company.  The following is from the British  Columbia Review (London). One of  the properties tinder bond by this company is the Anaconda, near Greenwood :  The Recordia (British Columbia) Exploration Company, a preliminary notice of which is given in this issue, has  been formed with a capital of ��200,000  to take over and exercise the options  acquired by the Recordia Syndicate, of  whose representative, Mr. Woodhouse,  M. I.M.M., we published an interview  some weeks iago. The total cash payments only amount to ^"8000, the balance, ,��123,000, being taken in shares,  thus showing- the faith of the parent  company in the venture. The option  on the waterworks.of Rossland would  add an undoubted value to the Company's operations should that . town  continue to increase at its past ratio.  It is generally conceded that Rossland  will be a very larg-e and wealthy mining town. An excellent map accompanies the prospectus, the accuracy of  which is vouched for by Messrs. Rickards and Woodhouse, whose signature ,  it bears.  The Joe Dandy 'mine -owned by the  B. C. Development Company has let a  contract to Eraser & Chalmers, of Chicago, for a big mill. , Other properties  in -Fairview are being- actively developed.
