Vol, I,  GREENWOOD CITY, B,C��� SATURDAY, JANUARY 2, 1897,  No, 17,  THE   PIONEER   HOTEL.  Just a year ago on Thursday a supper was given in what  is now the bar-room of the Pioneer Hotel at Greenwood to  celebrate the opening of the first boarding-house in the  then very young " city." The guests partook of turkey,  with oysters as the piece de resistance���the oysters,' by-the-  way, were also pioneers. It was remarked at the time that  the guests, utterly disregarding all hygienic and gastronomic axioms with regard to. the proper mastication of  food, " bolted " their dinner with indecent haste, no one  waiting to hear the eloquent speeches that had been prepared  for  the  occasion.     The   reason  was  obvious : The  lucky then if he could call one  of  these  luxuriant  couches  temporarily his own.  Soon afterwards the building of the hotel proper was  commenced and our illustration depicts the formal opening  which took place on the Queen's birthday. Since then a  veranda has been added and several other improvements  made. As to accommodation and the furnishing of the  rooms, guests certainly cannot now complain with reason.  Of the original proprietors, Mr. Nelson, who is well and  favorably known throughout the district, still retains his  interest in the property. Mr. Frank Wood, who recently  sold out to Mr. Caulfield of Virden, Man., was the first man  to haul ore from Boundary Creek, when he took a load from  THE    PIONEER    HOTEL,    GREENWOOD,    B.C.  thermometer registered 12 degrees below zero and the hotel  was made of green lumber, the wind playing high jinks  through the cracks. Under these circumstances even turkeys and oysters cannot command the respect to which they  are strictly entitled. No sooner, however, was the building  knocked together than the proprietors, Messrs. Wood, Hub-  bell & Nelson, were literally besieged with customers. The  dining-room at meal times was a sight worth, seeing ; as  many as 60 and 70 men sometimes crowding into the limited  space, struggling for a place at the tables. When the more  fortunate secured seats, they were urged in moving terms  to lose no time in finishing their meal. Above the dining-  room was a loft or garret, wherein were placed six bunks  supplied with straw mattresses.    A  man   thought  himself  the D.A. mine���now the property of the Boundary Creek M.  & M. Co.���out to Marcus, whence it was shipped to the  E}yerett smelter.  The Pioneer occupies a very central and advantageous  position on the corner of Government and Greenwood streets  with the post-office immediately opposite and the chief business houses of the city in close, proximity. Recently the  second floor of the new block adjoining Rendell & Co.'s  store has been leased and furnished as an annex to the  hotel. The popularity which the house enjoys amongst the  miners and old-timers will ensure it a certain amount of  patronage, no matter how many others are opened or what  inducements are offered by them to attract business,���and  especially so under its present management.  ./  7--r  . u >i ������.  v   l  ������*.'  t*r THE   BOUNDARY   CREEK   TIMES  GREENWOOD AND VICINITY.  1-8-9-7,���and don't forget it.  The case offurious driving, heard at  Midway on Monday, was dismissed.  A crown grant is being applied for  by Mr. A. Megraw for the Minnehaha,  at Camp McKinney. (  An excellent view of the hospital has  just been taken by Mr. Worgan, an engraving of which is being prepared for  The Times.  A show-case of very superior finish  and workmanship has been made for  Messrs. R. N. Taylor & Co. by a local  carpenter, Mr. R.J., Coates.  Mr. Snodgrass this week contracted  for the erection of a small hotel and  residence at Okanagan Falls. The  building of the larger hotel, so long  contemplated, will be commenced early  in the spring. " , '  Through tickets are now issued via  Snodgrass & Sons' stage line from  Greenwood to Vancouver or Seattle for  $25.55, or to Portland for $26.90. Until  recently the fare was $24.35 from Penticton, with an additional $8.50 for  stage fare. . ' - '  Amongst the nonresidents who have  purchased real estate in Greenwood  this week are Mr. J. Cameron, of Warsaw, Idaho, and Mr. McKinnon, of  Hamilton, Montana. The latter purposes opening a meat market on Copper street.  A shooting match was held in Greenwood on Saturday, the target being  placed within a very short distance of  the dynamite magazine. To one unaccustomed to the expertness of the  contestants with the rifle, the situation  was certainly hazardous.  We regret to announce the death of  the wife of Mr. Robt. Hall, which  occurred at Okanagan Mission on the  19th tilt., after a long illness. Mr.  Hall had made every preparation to remove his family to his pre-emption on  Boundary creek, a short distance above  Greenwood, and left here with that intention some weeks ago  As mentioned last week, the A. F.' &  A. M. will shortly organize a lodge in  Greenwood, there being quite a number of Masons resident in the locality.  The site selected for a hall, is on lot 5,  -block 3, Government street. The Oddfellows have chosen lot 3 in the same  block. . Iyot 4 has been reserved, and  the intention is for the two orders to  unite in putting up a large building on  the three lots, the upper storey to be  used for lodge purposes, while the  ground floor will be fitted up as a city  hall, with stage, ante-rooms and other  accessories for public entertainments.  The Ruby near Boundary Falls gives  every promise of becoming a. mine.  There is one shaft on the claim down  about 40 feet in solid ore assaying  25 per cent, copper, and a good strike  has been made by George Cook at another spot while doing assessment work  recently.  nffWJB""  "** "mm'*'   ��UHJilfW��'.TV!���I?*"  he Greenwood Book Store.  #  Next door to Ford's Barber Shop.

Some fine ore is being" taken from  the shaft of the Oro, in White.s camp,  at a depth of about 15 feet. Samples  recently assayed returned $50 in g-old  and 18 per cent, copper.  Georg-e Cook was in Greenwood on  Tuesday and stated that the Ruby lead,  where he has been working-, is fully  100 feet wide. The ore is similiar in  appearance to that found on the Winnipeg beneath the pyrrhotite.  The assessment is being- done on the  Superior, near the Victoria in Camp  McKinney, owned by Tom McDonnell  and; Joe Franks. The claim has an  immense showing- of copper, iron and  galena. The ore assays about $12 on  the surface, but as hig-h as 30 oz. in  silver and 9 per cent, copper have been  obtained.  Word has been received that Mr.  L/eslie Hill, the consulting- engineer of  the Vancouver Prospecting Syndicate,  will, visit Boundary in the course of the  next few days to let the contract for  the.building of the road to the Denero  Grande, and to make the necessary arrangements for starting work on the  Jewel.-.  The owners of the Big Four and of  the L/ulu, in Kimberly camp, are working two shifts on the properties. Both  claims are looking very well. On the  Big Four the shaft is down 20 feet all  the way in solid ore. It is the intention to sink for 50 feet and then crosscut. On the L/Ulu a gook strike was,  made the other day of quartz carrying  native silver. The shaft is down 12  feet.  Wm. Yonkin and James Copeland  have a magnificent showing on their  claims, the L/e Roi and War E}ag\e,  near White's Bar. The ledge has been  proved to be 50 feet wide by prospect  holes sunk at intervals, all being  through solid ore resembling that on  the Morrison. Assays average $20 for  all values. The owners received two  good offers for the claims last fall, one  from Mr. Bash of $10,000, the other  from Mr. J. R. Toole of $20,000 cash or  $60,000 on a bond, but decided to hold  on and develop the properties themselves.  Mr. Frank Davis, one of the directors  and local manager for the Rambler  Mining Company operating on Pass  Creek, left for Spokane on Tuesday's  stage to attend a meeting of the board.  Mr. Davis expects that the company  will employ a larg-e force of men to develop the Rambler claim upon his return. At present the Rambler shaft is  down 22 feet, at the bottom of which  there is a magnificent showing of ore.  Rambler shares are now selling at 5c,  but this price is to be advanced.

The following message of condolence  is addressed by the Anaconda,Comraer-  cial Club to the relatives and friends of  the late R. N. Taylor: When Almighty  God in His wisdom takes from our  midst one whom we have learned to  respect, honor and love for his manly  qualities, we, as mortals, can but bow  our heads in submission. Yet in the  death of Richard N. Taylor, the place  of his residence has lost one of its best  and most progressive men, and the  members of this organization have realized their bereavement in the loss to  them of one who has always been held  in high esteem, and they tender to his  relatives sympathy in their loss.  A letter signed by the president. and  secretary was sent to Mr. Allen Cameron, C.P.R. district freight agent at  Vancouver :  . Dear Sir,���We have the honor to append hereto our endorsement, as an  organization composed of business men  of this city and vicinity, to the enclosed petition���relative to the extension  of the C.P.R. system to Dog Falls���  and we also desire to assure you. of our  hearty support in any movement that  will facilitate our freight shipments  via the Canadian Pacific Railway,  DANCE AT ANACONDA.  The dance, given by the Anaconda  Commercial Club on New Year's eve  in-their hall on Butte avenue was well  attended, about thirty-five couples be-  , ing present. The first dance, a grand  march, was led off by little Alec Hardy,  son of the president of the club, and  Ruth Miller. The hall was tastefully  decorated with evergreens and bunting  and lighted by Chinese lanterns; the  floor was in admirable condition and  the music good. Supper was served at  the Palace hotel at midnight, after  which dam ing was resumed the party  not breaking up until 5 a.m. The  dance committee are to be commended  upon the sticcess that attended their  arrangements for the occasion. The  dance was in every way well-conducted, and the "rough" element was notably absent. The Club has announced  a dance for Friday the 15th inst.  THE TELEGRAPH TO BOUNDARY.

The Xmas  entertainment  given   in  the Greenwood school-room on the 24th  was well attended and proved most enjoyable.    It  has,   however,   been  well  ���suggested that it would be wiser, when  .the amusement  of  children is really a  . first consideration, to  dispense with a  programme   by     "grown-up"   people  and allow the little ones  to  romp .and  . amuse themselves in the way they like  best.    Thanks to  Miss Thornber's energy    and    the   liberal    subscriptions  donated  by   the people  of   the    town',  tiie children received many   handsome  presents   from   the    tree.

Mr. Lawder, who sang before a Greenwood audience for the first time, has a good  tenor voice of 'much sweetness. Mr.  Sansom was as usual enthusiastically  received. Mr. I^arnb's song, "The  Magpie," was encored, as also was Mr.  Irwin's recitation. Mr. Hind's reading  was very amusing. Mrs. Iyamb was  unfortunately suffering from a slight'  cold and was therefore at a disadvantage ; her song was nevertheless loudly  applauded. "Mr. F. B. Smith. sang  "The little tin soldier " very well under trying circumstances.  At the conclusion of the programme  Santa Claus���impersonated by Mr.  Sansom���put in his appearance and  the work of stripping the heavily-laden  Christmas tree was quickly accomplished.  BOUNDARY   CREEK   TIMES.  One dance is very like another providing the floor is good, the music  lively and loud enough, and the proportion of the sexes equal; it then necessarily follows that the dancers will  enjoy themselves. At the International  hotel on Thursday evening there were  nearly 200 guests present. The ball  was opened at 9.30 by a grand march,  Mr. Comstock acting as floor manager.  At midnight a supper/' whereat the  Xmas turkey and plum pudding were  conspicuous, was served.  On Christmas Day an entertainment  followed by a Xmas tree for the children, was held in the Commercial Club's  rooms at Anaconda. Those who took  part in the programme were the Misses  Wilkins and Becker, and Messrs. Wilbur, Hind, Frost, Mitchell and Gree-  don. The evening passed very pleasantly. . .  One feature of the holiday season deserving of note was the thoughfulness  and kind intent of several of the heads  of families in Greenwood in inviting  their bachelor friends to partake of  Xmas fare and spend a pleasant evening amid the home circle. Occasional  evening-s thus enjoyed will go a  long way towards keeping a young  fellow "straight.."  A number of plum-puddings were  received in Greenwood from the Old  Country direct, on which duty was  charged almost equal to the intrinsic  value of the goods themselves.  ARMSTRONG.

It is with feelings of genuine sorrow  that we chronicle this week the sudden  and tragic death of Mr. R. N.   Taylor,  which   occurred  early  on  Wednesday  morning.    Up to a late hour  on  Tuesday night Mr. Taylor was  in  full  enjoyment of vigorous health and spirits  and it seemed hardly credible to  those  who had talked and laughed with   him  but a few hours previous that he should  have   passed   to  that  bourne  whence  hone return.    The deceased,  who  was  immensely   popular,   with   all  classes,  came to the province in the year  1889.  He opened a drug store  at  Vernon  in  1891 and established an excellent business in a short space of time.    Disposing of his business last year,.he visited  the home  of  his  parents  at  Barrow,  England, remaining for some months.  Upon his return   to  British  Columbia  Mr. Taylor decided  to   again  start in  business,   choosing  the  new   town  of  Greenwood, on Boundary creek, as the  most likely spot for his purpose.    During  the  six  months  or  so  since  Mr.  Taylor has resided  here,  he  won  the  warm esteem and respect of his fellow-  townsmen, not-only on account  of  his  sterling uprightness and  integrity  of  character, but for the even  and'kindly  good-nature for which he was -remarkable.    The death of Mr.  Taylor  is  an.  almost irreparable loss to  Greenwood.  An inquest on the body of the late  Mr. R. N. Taylor was held at 1 o'clock  on Wednesdajr afternooon by Dr.  Jakes, coroner for the district, and a  . jury of Messrs. T. Miller, (foreman) R.  Wood, Hallett, Huff, Sansom, Webb  and Worgan.  c The first witness, Mr. J.  Fisher,   deposed as follows,: At 10 minutes to 1 on  Wednesday morning I heard Mr.   Taylor unlock, enter and re-lock the  front  door of the drug-store, of which we are  joint proprietors.    He came  in  to  the  back  part  of  the building,   which we  used as a living and sleeping room, and  remarked to me that he and  Mr.   Rendell had passed a very  pleasant  evening with the doctor. I was then in bed.  Deceased took the lamp from the table  near the head of his bed and went over  to the dispensing counter, commencing  to do something there, I could  not  see  plainly what as the light was dim. Mr.  Taylor was in  the  habit  of  taking  a  dose of  bromo-seltzer  before  retiring-  for the night.    The bottle in which the  bromo-seltzer is  kept  is  very  similar  in size, color and  appearance  to  that  containing the poison.   I saw deceased  lift something to his lips, he staggered  over  to  his  bed,   and said, "I think I  will go to bed now."    These were  the  last words he ever spoke.    He dropped  suddenly on to the bed in   a  way  that  struck me as strange, and at the   same  time I noticed  a  strong  odour  in  the  room.    I  jumped  up  and  said,   "For  God's sake Dick what have you done ?"  I recognized the smell as the  same  as  came from a drug Mr. Taylor had given  me for the purpose of poisoning a bird.  I immediately rushed  into the  store,  procured   a   bottle  of  castor  oil,   and  poured the  contents  down   deceased's  throat.    He swallowed  three  parts  of  the contents of the bottle.    I then ran  for the doctor.    On my return  the deceased   was   breathing irregularly ; I  gave him some more oil.    About three  minutes after the doctor's arrival death  occurred.     Deceased    had  been   very  jolly all day and so far as witness knew  had had no trouble on  his  mind.    Deceased  was  not  intoxicated  when  he  swallowed   the  poison.    Witness   was  satisfied that it was purely accidental.  Mr. G. A. Rendell said : Had known  deceased for nearly four years  and  he  was   never   otherwise  than  cheerful;  was with him at Dr. Jakes' on Tuesday  evening  and  there  asked  him if    he  would go to Greenwood camp on  New  Year's night, to which  he  consented.  We left the hospital together and I bid  him good-nig-ht near the store about 11  o'clock.    Do not know where he, went  ���after that time.  Dr. G. W. Hepworth, Grand Forks,  stated that he had examined the body  of deceased and noticed the smell of  hydrocyanic of prussic acid escaping  from his mouth; there were no marks  of external injury ; the- poison taken  is the strongest preparation made, and  from the appearance of the body would .  have no hesitation-in ascribing death  to the effect of the acid.  Police Constable lOlkins testified tcL,  being called by Mr. Fisher at 1.25 on  Wednesday morning, and on reaching  the drug store found Mr. Taylor was  dead. Dr. Jakes was present in the  room.  The coroner, in addressing the jury  said there could be no question as to  the cause of death and.no difficulty in  rendering a verdict. Mr. Miller then  announced the finding of the jury to be  "Accidental death."  The funeral service was held in the  school-house at 2 o'clock on Thursday,  when Rev. Mr. Irwin delivered a brief,  but impressive discourse, after which  the funeral cortege wended its way to  the cemetery, and the service was concluded over the open grave.  Deceased was a member of both the  Freemasons and Oddfellows, but as  neither order have an organized lodge  in Greenwood they were unable to  officiate at the funeral other than as  personal   friends.      The   pall-bearers,  however, were all Freemasons.  ' <sBms^m^aaisiassssssB!aa^Es  >*��S:fr��7r.��B;^3!!te��5i*3  ORBES   M.   KERBY,  Assoc. Mem. Can. Soc.

HUNGARIAN  XXX STAR  STRONG BAKERS  GRAHAM  Bran Shorts Chop Etc  V  v THE   BOUNDARY   CREEK   TIMES.  y  THE B. C. M. & C. ASSOCIATION.  The   committee    of   the    Boundary  Creek Mining & Commercial Association met on Saturday to hear the plans  ' proposed by Mr.  Snodgrass for  establishing   a  more  regular  and  cheaper  service of freighting  from  Penticton.  Mr. Galloway  (vice-president)   presided.    Mr. Snodgrass said that that..the  question of freight   charges was of the  utmost importance to every resident in  the district, but especially to the   merchants.    What he proposed  was,   with  the co-operation of  the   association, to  demand from the C.P.R.   such   concessions as to ensure the freight  for  this  lower country coming in by  the   Canadian   line.      The   railroad   company  would   not   be  asked  to  reduce  their  rates,  which  were  the  same���or  perhaps a little  less���than  those  of  the  Spokane & Northern to Marcus, but to  make the foot of Dog lake the terminus  of the road instead   of Penticton.    To  do this it would be. necessary   to   have  tramway lines from Penticton  to   the  head of Dog lake, a distance of . about  three miles.    Mr. Snodgrass had offered the company, providing they would  supply the rails, to assume the responsibility for the rest of the undertaking,  transporting the freight  from  Penticton to Okanagan Falls for $3' per  ton.  The advantage  of  making-  the  latter  place the terminal point is simply this :  It would then be possible for freighters  hauling over the Penticton road to successfully compete with  those  hauling  from Marcus ; at present it is not,' the  Marcus road being at least 20 miles the  shorter distance.    Mr.  Snodgrass  had  discussed the matter with several of the  teamsters, who agreed to haul  freig-ht  from the..foot of Dog lake for  l#c. per  pound in summer and l%c   in  winter,  and to reduce this rate  if necessitated  >by reductions on the Marcus road.    He  further urged the committee to petition  the government to change the route of  the main trunk road by following  the  bank of Rock  creek,   as  was  at  first  contemplated, and thereby decreasing  the distance seven miles and  avoiding  much steep climbing.  Another important matter Mr. Sncd-  grass alluded, to was the exorbitant  charges on express parcels to Greenwood. He pointed out that the express  company lost many customers on this  account, people finding it cheaper to  have small packages sent by mail. To  remedy this it was proposed to communicate with the manager of the company for the western division, asking-  that the charge on parcels expressed to  Greenwood be the same as at present  charged to Penticton.  After these subjects' had been discussed, a committee of representative  business men from Greenwood, Anaconda and Midway was appointed to  draw up resolutions to be presented to  a meeting of the association oil Tuesday  A general meeting.of  the   Boundary  Creek M. and C. Association was  held  on    Tuesday     evening.       After    the  minutes of the  previous   meeting  had  been read, the by-laws and constitution  drafted by the committee were submitted to the Association and   passed.    A  letter addressed to Mr. Allan Cameron,  district freight  agent  of the  C. P. R.  Co. at Vancouver, from the  merchants;  of Boundary Creek,.urging the  importance   of   the   step  proposed   by   Mr.  Snodgrass, was then read by the chairman, the Association passing a resolution strongly endorsing the views  ex  pressed  iri  the letter.    On motion the  secretary was instructed to write to Mr.  G. H. Ford, of the Dominion  Express  Company, relative to  establishing  an  agency af Greenwood.    Several  reliable residents of the town have signified  a willingness to act for  the  company  upon a nominal salary.    Messrs. Robt.  Wood,   Smailes  and  McDonnell  were  appointed delegates from the  Association to interview the  Provincial  Government " for the  furtherance  of  any  scheme whereby railroad  communication with this district and   the  outside  world can be brought about at an early  date."    A second  resolution  was  further passed ��� authorising the same  delegates to  act  for  the  Association   in  seeing that the petition' from  the  people of Boundary to the Chief Commissioner asking that a road be built from  Greenwood  through   Providence    and  Summit camps to the  North  Fork  receive   due   consideration.    Before  adjourning- several matters  of local  importance were discussed by  the  meeting : notably the question of incorporating-, the town. Mr; R. Wood stated that  Mr. Graham, M.P.P., had promised  to  get the necessary permission from  the  House.    Meanwhile, Mr. Hallett pointed out, it is very important that   every  landowner should  register  his  deeds.  Messrs. Bla-, k, Hallett and  Kerr  were  appointed by the  chairman  to  collect -  ' names of eligible voters and  to  ascertain that they are placed on the list  of  Provincial Voters.    Mr. Hallett stated1  that he had already filled out between  40   and  50  forms  for  applicants; Mr.  Kerr had   also  collected  a number  of  names.    The  Association   determined  to enter protests against the   granting'  of .charters   indiscriminately  to   com-'  p anies asking for monopolies of  water  or   other   rights.     The   next   general  meeting of the Association is convened  for Friday the 8th inst., at 7:30 p.m.  Notice of Application for Private Bili.  Townsite of Greenwood City.

sixty feet wide. . On either side of the
lead paychutes of clean iron-sulphide
ore are found, averag-ing $25 in gold.
One of , these paychutes is three and a
half, and the other two and a half feet
wide. On the larg-er of the two an incline shaft has been sunk for 28 feet
and several open cuts have been run.
Some of the oxidized rock taken from
one spot on the claim assayed as hig-h
as $175. The contrivance Jack Harlan
used to extract the g*old—without great
success—from this valuable rock, may
yet be seen by the Copper camp road.
Mr. Holbrook<< is, having- assessment
work done on the Boundary Falls No.
2, and on the '96 in Smith's camp. It
is thought that the Ruby lead runs
throtig-h both claims.
Mr. W. T. Smith returned this week
from Fairview and Vancouver. Mr.
Smith states that arrang-ements are
not as yet completed for commencing
work on the Republic Mining- Company's properties.
A working shaft has been sunk and
timbered on the G.A.R. and preparations are now being- made by the manager of the B. C. M. & M. Co. to sink a
100-foot shaft on the lead. The tunnel
on the Big Ivedg-e is in 30 feet on the
vein, the last assay showing the ore to
run $65.40 for all values, $49.35 in gold
as compared with the assay made when
the tunnel was in 15 feet, of $35 for all
The Clifton, owned by the Coolgar-
die Mining- Co., in Copper camp, is
looking well. The tunnel, which has
been driven for 36 feet, is throug-h vein
matter for 26 feet. The ore at first was
quartz, heavily impreg-nated with copper pyrites, but recently has changed
to red oxide of copper. The breast of
the tunnel is now solid ore, of promising appearance. Col. Peyton, a large
shareholder in the L,e Roi mine, a few
days ag-o purchased several thousand
shares of Coolgardie stock. Samples
of Clifton ore sent to Rossland have
received very favorable comment.
Card of Thanks.
Mr. B. Taylor and Mr. J. Fisher desire to express their thanks for and
their appreciation of the kind sympathy and thoughtful consideration
shown them by the people of Greenwood and neighborhood in the hour of
