GREENWOOD, B.C.," SATURDAY, JANUARY 1, 1898,  69  No. m  HOTEL   LICENSES.  OEICE-MAGISTRATE HAEEETT made the following pointed observations at the recent sitting  of the Licensing Court:  " My brother. Commissioners have asked me,  before dealing with the applications for licenses  now before us, to speak as to the character of the  licensees to whom, and the hotels in respect of  which, we shall now and in the future grant licenses to sell  intoxicating liquors.��� We have a pride in this town and full  confidence in its future. We believe it to be the quietest  and most orderly mining town in the Province and to have  brighter prospects than any other town of its size, and we  are determined, as .far as in us lies, to keep up the standing  and character of the city and to repress all lawlessness and  rowdyism. We believe the coming year will witness a great  influx of people into this district, and athere may be some  who would wish to see this a ��� " wide-open town," but we do  not and no right thinking man would. We desire to see  ample hotel accommodation for all people who may visit  this city, and we wish all visitors to receive good care and  attention and to feel that in our hotels they are well treated,  free from annoyances and secure from danger ; and if this  can be accomplished the travelling public will more readily  visit us, since no reputation travels more^quickly than the  fame of'a-', first-rate hotel,���it is being constantly advertised  by its patrons.  No people exert a greater influence on a place than do the  venders of spiritous  liquors,   and  we   are  pleased that the  City Council have allowed licenses for the sale of  liquor by  retail to be granted to hotel  keepers  only.    Each  building  used for hotel purposes must  have   at   least the  number of  rooms required by  the  City  By-Eaw  and  have proper entrances and exits���every hotel must have an entrance separate and apart from the entrance to the saloon.    It must be  so arranged that patrons can go in   and  out  of  the living  apartments and dining room without being  annoyed by the  proximity  of  the saloon.    And every hotel must have sufficient means of escape in case of fire���a proper outside stairs  with hand railings must lead from each storey to the ground  in the rear of the building, and in addition all rooms above  the ground floor, not opening onto a  veranda, must be supplied with a Y% inch rope firmly fastened by a staple driven  into a scantling  near  the  window  and  such  rope to be in  length sufficient to reach within five feet of the ground.    If  a veranda is a part of a building two or  more  ropes  are to  be placed on it���these  ropes  are  to  be  carefully coiled up  and ready  for  use at  all  times.    It  may  be said that fire  escapes are not required by the ���" Municipal  Clauses Act."  It is of a certainty said that the commissioners may  refuse  to grant licenses if they deem the public  interest justifies a  ��� efusal and we hold that we  should  be  guilty of criminal  negligence if we licensed hotels which are unprovided with  means  of escape  in  the  case  of fire.    We are aware that  equipping hotels as we have just indicated will  entail .some  outlay, but it is our duty to the traveling  public to  regard  their safety, and the care that is  shown  for  the safety  of  the traveling public will be appreciated by them  and  they  will more readily patronize safe hotels.  And every hotel must be kept in first-class style. By this  we do not mean that the hotels must be expensive hotels to  live at, on the contrary we wish to see accommodation for  the rich and poor. Yet while a hotel may not charge a high  rate for board and lodging it is no reason why it should be  frequented  \>y   drunkards  or   bums,   or why  good square  meals  and  good attention  should  not be received, and its  patrons not be annoyed  by  questionable  characters.    And  in this connection we may say that it has  been  brought to  our notice that women of ill fame have been in the habit of  visiting the hotels and drinking and  it   may  be soliciting.  This will not   be permitted hereafter.    And no hotel shall  be used for the  purpose  of  prostitution.    We   will license  hotels and not assignation  houses.    We  have  never  heard  that " ringing in " orc;whatever name may be  given to the  practice of the  bar keeper calling up all persons present in  the saloon when a drink is  called  for,   has  ever been practiced here and we simply wish to express  the hope  that  it  may never be, as this is only tried on  strangers,   timid persons or drunken people, and  is  not  one  jot  removed from  stealing, and it encourages lazy, drunken   hulks  to  lounge  around bar rooms looking for these stolen drinks.  A hotel license carries with it the furnishing of board and  lodging and we shall require every licensed person to furnish both and not to farm put the dining room and sleeping  rooms. If any licensee does he ���will, be'running a saloon only  and as no saloon licenses are granted Under our by-laws his  hotel license will be cancelled. Chap. 4, of the Provincial  Act of 1891, in Section 3, provides a penalty for furnishing  liquor to a drunken person. This must be enforced, and the  police will see to.its enforcement. No drunken man should  be turned into a beast. And if any person becomes drunk  we trust that the hotel keeper who furnishes him the liquor  will take care of him until he becomes safe andnoMurn  him out in the street to be an annoyance to the public and  a disgrace to the town. The same act provides for Sunday  closing and this act must be more strictly regarded, and  gambling m list be suppressed. We propose to accomplish  these objects by being most conservative in granting licenses. We do not propose to grant to others than persons of  good characters and such are preparing to ask for them. A  license to a low saloon would attract to the town the lowest  class and would be the rendezvous for criminals and a dis-  g*race to the town. No doubt if the railway builds towards  here this year we shall have many applications for licenses  and we shall grant only after we find out the character of  the applicants. Some may have left their former homes  for their country's good and be skilled in dealing cards, and  we hope that such will not apply. We shall require that  licensed persons have assistants decent for attendants and  and not toughs, fighters or blackguards. In each hotel we  shall expect a reputable woman to be engaged. In each  hotel here there is now and let this be kept up as ladies can  then patronize.the hotels and receive due attention."  Finally we wish to draw attention to Section 196 of the  MunicipalClauses Act from which it will be seen that licenses, which by the way are onby temporary, are not a vested  trust, can be revoked or canceled. We do not draw attention to these sections as a threat but desire to say that violations of the requirements of the law will cause a cancellation of licenses.  ttf  "/If  "*IC  GREENWOOD   COUNCIL.  The Greenwood  City  Council  met  on Monday  evening.  There was but little business to claim   the  attention   of the  aldermen and after passing two or three accounts passed  by the finance committee, the council adjourned. The  council may have another meeting before their successors  are elected. The coming municipal election appears to  evoke but little interest. The first council for the city of  Greenwood will be noted for the goodfeeling among its members. Scarcely a motion was moved and seconded but  was unanimously passed and during the year, not one vote  was recorded. We doubt if there is another municipal  council which can show such a record.

The   Times   heartily   endorses   the  idea of circulating- a petition in the district  lying-r between;; Christina   I^ake  and Penticton urging- 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 over  the  riches  of Boundary Creek, when they feel that  here   is   a   district   which  if  given a;  chance will play no mean part in makr  ing 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 un-;  dertaken   by  the people most directly  interested.    The Times which has been  continuallyurging- the people to take a  greater public interest  in  those <question which vitall3r concern the prosperity of the district  will  be  the  last  to  discourage any reasonable  scheme by.  which a unanimous expression is given  to the views 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 suggest 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. Althougii there has been  no record kept of the amount expended  in the construction of buildings 'in  G-reenwood it will foot up to many  thousand dollars. There are still several buildings uncompleted and others  for which plans are being prepared.  Among- the building's 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 Hodgson, residence and two storey  block; Nels L/eplante, twostore}r block;  W.

Gibbs, office and residence.    In  addition to   these   there   were   many  smallbuidings 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  given up the idea of visiting Boundary  Creek. As soon as he returns from  Victoria he will make a trip through  southern Yale���-unless he is incarcerated in a provincial dungeon on account  of the criminal libel with which he is  charged by Messrs. Turner and Pooley.  Commercial  Association.  The first reg-ular meeting of the  Boundary Creek Min ing & 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 riiake an effort to attend the  meetings and take part in "the discussions the association is sure to be a  power for good in   the   interests of the  district.  Redistribution.  /It is scarcely possible that the provincial government will take the advice of its Victoria org-an, 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 buy 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. J. H.  Turner and Hon. C. K. Pooley would,  stoop   to  such an   expedient.

The people can feel confident that they  will introduce such a measure of redistribution as will g-ive every man an  equal voice in the government of the  country.  .An elector in Ksquimalt will not then  have 8 times as much influence as an  elector in Bast Yale nor will the vote  of an elector in Iyillooet 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 govern thent.

Quietly but quickly capital is securing control of the best properties in  Boundary Creek district. The terms  upon which these properties change  hands are such as to insure a large  amount of work during the coming  year., Since the first of October last  properties in Boundary Creek district  valued at upwards of a quarter million  dollars have been secured by experienced and moneyed mining men who  are ag-gressively going to work to prove  that this district is entitled to every  encomium that has been lavished upon  it. The Snowshoe bonded by Patsy  Clark for $50,000, theN Anchor and ��� Enterprise bonded b3r McKenzie & Mann  for $50,000, the Stemwinder and air of  Farrell & Midgeon's Boundary Creek  properties bonded by McKenzie &  Mann for upwards of $100,000, the  Golconda Group bonded by the B. C.  Development Company for $35,000 and  a score of smaller deals,���all these  transfers do not make a bad showing-  for three, months.  The B. C. Development Company  throug-h its representative, Mr. P. C.  Stoess of Spokane, has also bonded a  ���% interest in the Rawhide in Greenwood camp. The amount mentioned  in the bond was $37,500.    It is for  six  and nine months and stipulates that  active and continuous work on the property must begin by January 15th  next.  The remaining quarter interest not  included in the bond is or rather was  owned hy Messrs. Farrell & Midg-eon.  The three-quarter interest is owned by  Robert Denzler, W." W. Gibbs, Greenwood, Mr. Mclnnes of Grand Prairie,  and Thos. Tye of Montana. The Rawhide lies between the Snowshoe, Gold  Drop and Curlew and contains the  same big* vein of ore can-ying similar  high values. The Curlew, a fractional  claim owned by Mr. Denzler, is said to  be also bonded by Mr. Stoess but the  report has not been confirmed.  Mr. Gibbs after the bond was closed  sold his eighth interest iu the property  to Mavor Wood.  The Municipal Council of the city of  Grand Forks has at last discovered  that the collection of taxes on real estate and improvements for the year  1897 was illegal. At its last meeting,  the council instructed the city treasurer not to receive any more taxes aud  to pay back what money had already  been collected.  Jenckes  Canadian  Drill Co.

Xike the Winnipeg- and the B. C. the  Snowshoe is destined to go throug-h all  -the excitement of being- under bond  two or 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 rule and  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 ag-o.    Three shifts of  four men  were  kept  at work   and the  large body of hig-h  grade   ore was encountered   to    a   considerable   extent.  Then machinery was needed to operate  the mine and the owners  gave 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  to give time to examine  the  property.  A deal  has  almost  been   closed and  "before The Times 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  o it 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 return-  ei to his family in Portland with no  slender purse in consequence of his  hiving sold some valuable mining  properties.  Mr. Gibbs or "Billy" as he was  familiarly called by the boys, is best  s tisfied when he is roughing it in a  new mining country. It would be a  -s'tfe. guess ihat before long he will be  ick in Boundary Creek or else he will  e one of the first of the argonauts in  some newly discovered eldorado, bringing joy or disappointment to the hardy  prospectors when they come to get the  results of assays made for them. If  these assa3rs do not indicate that the  discoveries are rich, the prospectors  c n rest assured that they are accurate.  The Times is indebted to E. M.

The Times expresses the hope that  all its readers may enjoy a large 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 general and this 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 advantage of the  tide which has turned in this direction.  Nature has been extremely generous  in her gifts. No district0 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 years unless  those directly interested show sufficient  confidence in their possessions to defend their rights against the aggressiveness and importunities of less favored sections.  Eet 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. Let them grumble because g-overnmentsTefu.se 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   citv     whose  prosperity is so closely identified with  the rich mining- country which surrounds it that its future is assured.  But li ere, also much depends on the  enterprise of its citizens. During- 1898  the cit}- can be improved and beautified. It can have good streets, good  sidewalks, an efficient system of=water-  works, and be lighted by a powerful  electric plant. Again the responsibility is thrown on 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 energ-etic and progressive  municipal government. The electors  should become impressed with the  great responsibility the3r 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  do and never will do and fill yourself  withMrie patriotic determination to be  a public-spirited arid progressive citizen, of^ the towri ~of G.reenwood or the  district of Boundary Creek during  1898V /������������'��� :.���������:������/.; /���>������' -      '  Another mining- deal was closed this  -week when R.

'���  THE   BOUNDARY   CREEK   TIMES,  MR.  McCALLUM'S   LETTER.  Below will ,,be found the letter signed  by Peter McCallum, J. P., and forwarded to Sir Oliver Mowat, the Minister of Justice.  Gkand Forks, B.C., June 3rd, 1897;  (The Honorable Sir Oliver Mowat,  Minister of Justice, Ottawa.)���Dear  Sir : I have been requested by several  residents of this district to report to  your direct notice certain alleged abuses in connection with the administration of justice by His Honor, Judge  Spinks, county court judge of Yale district in this province.  It is a well known fact that Judge  Spinks for the past two or three years  has not conducted himself as1 a gentleman holding the high office he does  should. Complaints have been made  for that period and are being made in  reference to favoritism and partiality  exhibited by Judge Spinks from the  bench, both in civil and criminal cases  where certain rings and cliques are interested.  r It is a well recognized fact, sir, that  Judge Spinks during the period above  mentioned has rarely, if: ever, appeared at the different places appointed  through out the district for the holding-  of county courts "on. time, but is always  from two to three days late, allowing-  suitors, witnesses and persons in custody on trial for criminal offences to  wait his pleasure, thereby causing-  them great loss of time traveling to  and from the place of trial and entailing great unnecessary expense.  It has repeatedly happened that prisoners waiting trial have been held over  two or three days over the time appointed for their trial and then acquitted. A marked case of this was=the  Queen vsDavis, tried here at the second last sittings of the county court,  and this sir, is not the exception; it is  the rule with Judge Spinks.  It is also charged against Judge  Spinks that he violated his oath of  office in allowing- influence to be used  upon him acquitting guilt}-- men; two,  marked cases of this.nature have occurred in this district within the past  twelve months.  It is also an admitted fact that Judg-e  Spinks is one of the members of a  clique in Grand Forks who are owners  of the townsite and members of this  clique have been known to boast that  no action could succeed against them  while Judge Spinks sat on the bench.  From my own knowledge, sir, I may  say that on one occasion I sat as one of  the board of license commissioners for  this district when an application came  before us b}r one of the members of the  ring above mentioned for a retail liquor license; the applicant was clearly  not entitled to a license and the board  refused the application. An appeal  was taken to Judge Spinks and as the  applicant belonged to this particular  ring of which Judge Spinks is an admitted member, he granted the license  in the face of the licensing board's refusal. In conclusion, sir, let me say  that the above are only a few of the  numerous charges brought against  Judg-e Spinks ; there is general dissatisfaction among the people throughout  the whole district, and coniplaintshave  appeared through the press on many  occasions without avail, till at last an  innocent and long suffering people  have come to accept it as a condition  of thing's which is remediless, and must  be borne without complaint. Let me  say, sir, thit if ever a public office in  British Columbia required to be aired ;  if there was ever a case which required  a Royal Commission to issue, to. enquire into these abuses which are so  flagrant and so numerous that it would  be impossible for me to enumerate  them.

It is impossible, therefore, to do justice  to  Cash Customers  on  this  basis,  His profits must of necessity be large enough to pay  funning expenses, interest on the accounts he carries on  his books, and to cover bad debts. We know from ex^  perience that the majority of the people of the Boundary  Creek country are strictly honest and will pay for everyy  thing they gct^ and no Storekeeper will ever lose a cent  by selling to them on credit. But those are the people  who have everything to gain and nothing to lose by pur^  chasing for cash and getting their goods at the Lowest  Possible Price, AH towns and countries have their own  h deadbeats," and every business man doing a large credit  business will form the acquaintance of some of them and  make bad  debts,    WHO PAYS FOR THESE?

THE   BOUNDARY   CREEK   TIMES.  ���Tt��ffi   =���,���-*�� J  SMELTING COMPETITION WANTED.  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  languag-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  mountains leading   to Christina Iyake.  The Miner is equally  unreliable when  it discusses   railway   matters   as they  affect  Kootenay  and  Boundary Creek  districts.    It displa3rs ignorance 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  g-entleman  whose .cause the Miner espouses.    Outside  its  advocacy   of Mr.  Heinze's schemes, the   Miner particularly  urges that Kootenay 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   Greek  district   are   wicked  enough and unpatriotic enough to hail  the news of  the   building  of Corbin's  railway.    And  why   shouldn't    they ?  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.    They askthat^  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   Corbin   enters   into   an  agreement to deliver ores to aiiy smeltr  -er 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 " and the " chart-  ermongers" and all the other bogie  men that, shocks its nervous system,  and discuss railway matters from that  point of view which relates more particularly 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 satisfactoi-3', $1,000 being saved  on the plates. This was from 25 tons  of ore.  fe|fe tM& ��|fe> ��Me ��Ma ��M& tM& ��Mgi ��M& *Jjfe> ��Ms> **U safe tMs> slla gj^ ��M& slla 4^)  njt  m  But we believe that our Treatment, our  Prices; arid the Quality of our Goods has  pleased more people during the past year  than  any  other  store oh Boundary Creek,  400 PER CENT.

Peterson was rather  seriously injured having fallen down a  shaft in the .Cariboo mine. He is  steadily 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 mining interests in  Boundary Creek district. They will  probably net him a large sum of money  which he so richly deserves after staying with the district for over nine years  Recordia Company.  The following is from the British  Columbia' Review (Eondon). One of  the properties under 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 ago. 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 Fraser & Chalmers, of Chicago, for a big mill. Other properties  in Fairview are being actively developed.  mtUXfBSWOSSSBBB  ���ivwmjin nun i��ii  Delicious "li II MI It Toothsome  susSMautnsa)  BiwwvMWiiiatacifCTtfaa.Kgaea  tobaooos:  WILLS' Famous "Navy Cut" "Traveller,"  and other lines of Tobaccos.
